How peaceful they appear. SHHHHH! Don't move. You'll scare them.
There's a fun contest over at BENCH PRESS. Chris sent around some authorly silly questions a while back. Your mission is to match the writer with the response.
I read them again and ended up laughing hysterically cuz I couldn't remember what I said.
I had to clean ORION today. Our boat sitter (for when we're in London) is coming for the weekend for a practice run. Tooloose and Girl Kitty are kicked out of the forward berth. I moved their beds to the salon settee. I had to put a cushion between them so they wouldn't fight.
It's not that simple to boat sit. First of all you can't forget you're floating otherwise that first step out of the cockpit is a real surprise.
When you walk through the doorways you have to turn to the side or your shoulders will become bruised and you'll look like you've been in a bar fight.
The refrigerator is so small that when you open the door everything will come at you like there's a poltergeist inside.
And the head. What can I tell you about the head? It's so small you can pee, brush your teeth and take a shower all at the same time. This is not as convenient as one might think.
Then there are the sounds: The clicking of the snapping shrimp against the hull. The rumbling of the fishing boat engines as they go out at 5 am. The gurgle gurgle gurgle of the sump and the screaming bilge alarm.
And those little oddities...peculiarities...
If you flush the toilet the stove turns off.
You can't use and microwave and the coffee maker at the same time or all the power goes off.
ORION has quite a sense of humor.
So how about you? Think Tooloose could whip you into shape to be a boat sitter?
