Long Delayed Post

I am feeling much better these days, thanks for asking. Almost eating normally again. Ok, I am not diving into any curries but for the most part my wacky diet remains intact. I also got to go shopping on Monday for new jeans as with all this tummy angst lately I have gone down a size. Very exciting.

My best buddy (who I met in kindergarten) is in town from London England with her new hubby and they came over to my new pad yesterday for a visit. We chatted like we had never been apart even though it has been about 3 years since we last saw each other. I was unable to attend her wedding last year because I was in the middle of radiation therapy so it was extra great to see her.

They brought me these beautiful sunflowers!

In case you are wondering why you cannot see Friday’s Head Crushing video any more that would be because today I got an email from YouTube saying they had removed it due to inappropriate content.

I guess somebody thought it was mean. If only they could have heard the purring…

I’ll show them inappropriate! I’ll dress Yoshi back up in her Madonna costume and do a whole video.

I don’t know whether to laugh at it all or cry that somebody thought I was abusive to my cat.

glad you are better. AS IF you would hurt your cat. I say laugh, as you know it to be extremely ree-dick-a-lus.

Say hi to tina for me.

Love mrs b

I can't see that anyone who's ever actually OWNED a cat could possibly think that was mean in any way. Looked perfectly normal (and cute) to me! I hope whoever blew the whistle on your video never does own a cat - it'll be so bored from never being "roughhoused" with!

Oh good grief. I adored the video. Smoosh that beautiful kitty for me. Or crush. Or both. ;) I check in when I can but I have to make it once a week for the smiles I get from your silly cat crushing. And then I manage to pass those smiles on to a friend of mine who has always had cats of her own but something about Yoshi makes me think of the cats of her youth.

So thank you for continuing to crush her... crush her good...

You're a cat beater :)
Puhleeeze, there are videos with guys' penises showing, and this is inappropriate? Ugh!
Sunflowers are just great!

So glad you're feeling better. I've been wondering about you.

You? Cruel to an animal? As if!

hemlock said...

Darn! I wasn't able to watch it when you first posted it, and just clicked on it now! :( Too bad!

Super glad you are feeling better!

Keep adding more and more cat-crushing video. Screw 'em.

As if Yoshi didn't have teeth and claws to bite and scratch you if you were too rough..... [Some people's kids.....]

I thought it was adorable!!

I checked YouTube's videos that don't violate their terms of use. They include Paris Hilton, Beerfest, and some guy eating Mentos and drinking diet Coke and spewing. Sounds like they don't have a clue what they're doing anyway.

Oh, for Pete's sake. YouTube! pppbbbttt

Wow. Love that flower! And glad to know that you have a good friend around to make you feel even better.

I couldn't play the video either - how odd that someone thought you were actually harming Yoshi! Maybe you should change it to Pet Your Cat Gently Friday.

For the love of all that's holy... better make sure her bed's not too soft, either. CRUSH the kitty -- she'd cry if you didn't.

Glad you are feeling better. And that you got to meet up with your friends in your fancy new apartment..
Maybe the youtube people were just jealous of your cat head crushing expertise..

Squirl said...

So glad you're feeling better.

But I can't believe they thought your video was inappropriate. If they watched it they would've seen that Yoshi was lovin' the crushing. And now we don't get to hear your voice, either.

they are inappropriate assholes!

Traci said...

I can't believe someone would say that about your video! How rude! Anybody with a clue knows how you love your kitty! I'm sorry that happened.

alan said...

Maybe it wasn't the video...maybe it was that wonderful voice they couldn't handle!

I tink you should post a new video and then link to the video about overpopulation and tell them with the statement adding if you think this is mean, check this out--poiting to the link

Thrilled you are feeling better. Can
you imagine the person's life who
"reported you". Obviously they have
no life.
