Monday Musings—RIP Evil V.C.!


Dateline, the Condo—Whoa! What a lot of stuff I have to cram into this blog! Unfortunately, I don’t have any any video footage or anything, but I know you’ll follow along. I can see everything that goes on in the condo from behind this lamp.

Our first story was one of my most popular Facebook posts, even though it has to do with Twitter. Strangely enough, I posted about it on Twitter and got one measly response. Go figure this social media stuff. Thursday was my 5th Twitterversary and they sent me a virtual cake. For those who don’t know, I started my Internet domination on Twitter, moved to Facebook and then started my blog several months later. September will be my 5th Blogoversary.


Our next story is of interest to those who hate the sucky machines aka the evil V.C. OUR'S DIED ON CATURDAY!! Woohoo! The sucky part, which has already been replaced once, fell apart. The V.C. is 10 years old so it’s amazing that the motor and everything else still works. TW bought the Electrolux Harmony cos it was supposed to be super quiet. Nicky, the cat who came before me, was a little scarety cat. MOL! It is quiet but I still keep my distance. I just don’t trust my peeps holding that thing. The power might go to their heads or something. Bye bye V.C. It's so old is that they discontinued that model so the peeps are looking into the model that replaced it. If I’m lucky, they might forget to order a new one.

I see it sneaking up on me. I ain’t scared of no V.C. sucky thing!

I’m gonna leave the next items for another post cos I know that you loyal readers don’t have the time to read really long blog posts. I guarantee it’s worth waiting for. This little ghetto kitteh is always looking out for you guys. So, for now,

to be continued …

Holy cod, we hope they don't buy an evil Dyson! Those things are the devil!

Did the VC have a little help from CK on its way out? Hmmmm?

I hope there is some way to convince the humans that they do not need one at all!

freddiethek said...

Didn't forget about the VC; bought a new one this morning on Amazon. It's an update on the model we currently have.

Austin Towers said...

I'm sure humans just use those things just to really upset us! They're not necessary at all!

Patty Woodland said...

I am glad you did not get sucked up the the VC - that would have been awful!

We'll cross our paws that somehow your humans won't be able to replace the evil V.C. ::Shudder::

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

CK are you still without the evil VC?

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Paws up for vanquishing the VC! Ours died on Sunday and the head peep replaced it *the same day.* Usually we can't get her to do anything, but she goes and gets a new VC the day the previous one goes belly up. We hope your peeps put it off a while, because this Hoover might suck us all in. We won't give it a chance and hide, just in case.

Oh those dang sucky machines. I think they should be against the law or something. You could always sabotage it !! Wow, you have had an interesting few days. It's pretty dull around here.

The Island Cats said...

CK, we just know your peeps will get a new VC. That's what they do.

Happy Twitterversary!

Ms. Phoebe said...

Try stuffing some of your toys in the bottom wheels of new VC to sabatoge it working! It will probably take peeps months to figure it out! MOL!

Ding dong the witch is dead! Shiner tries to "kill" my vacuum sometimes. Not all the time, but she was biting it last night while I was using it.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Congrats on your Twitter Anniversary!!!
We bow to your twittery greatness! : )

As for the VC, we'd LOVE to say goodbye to ours. Sadly, he's still running strong. He's aptly named "Monster."

; ) Katie

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Conga-rats on your Twitterversary, my darling! I have a certain detente with the sucky monster, but that's mostly because my Lazy Human does not use it very often, MOL!

Molly The Wally said...

Oh no don't let them get a new Vacula CK. Those things are evil. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Mr Puddy said...

It's EVIL thing !, that's why it can survive for 10 years !!!
Why human need to adopt evil vacuum ???

Tamago said...

Lucky you, the evil V.C. is gone! I hope your humans won't get a new, more powerful V.C. some time soon.
Happy Twitterversary. The virtual cake is very cute!

RedSetter said...

Humans are baaaad especially when they get it into their heads the vc is the only way to deal with the delightful and special fur you donate to the carpets and furniture. Damned ungrateful we say.

Congrats on your twitterversity. My grandpa (ma's dad) used to sell those electric luxy things when she was little. He actually traded a VC for a horse just for her. It was her first big horse since she always had ponies before. She got much enjoyment out of that horse. He was a abuse case and was nothing but skin and bones but ma wanted him. She said that mean old man had no business owning that horse so that is when grandpa decided to save the horse but didn't have the money to buy it. Worked out well, horse lived for 10 more years.
I hope TW gets a hoover. They really suck.

Nailah Bone said...

Oh, I didn't know you got cake on your twitterversary! :) Congrats! Also it's funny you're not scared of vacuums. Vega isn't either but our other 2 cats are terrified.
