Next up in blog memes from 2003: pet blogging. I would be all over Friday Cat Blogging, if only I had a cat. Fortunately for me, Friday Cat Blogging has expanded to encompass a wide variety of subjects, such as dogs and cephalopods. So I bring you: Friday Gorets Blogging.

Unfortunately, gorets are famously camera-shy, so I can't offer any photos this week. Maybe next time. Instead, I'll tell you about a recent moment involving my goret, Binkley, that I would post a picture of, if I had one. (Recognizing, of course, that claims of ownership of a goret are dicey at best, and my name for the goret is strictly for my own benefit.)

The other day, Binkley was enjoying a tasty snack of lenticular infundibula. In its enthusiasm for the infundibula, it managed to invert its foon grommet. This was, as you would expect, totally adorable. I thought about trying to grab a photo, but decided it was better to enjoy the moment for what it was. I didn't want to disrupt Binkley's enjoyment of the lenticular infundibula, after all.




What does "rolls a hoover" mean, anyway?

"Roll a hoover" was coined by Christopher Locke, aka RageBoy (not worksafe). He enumerated some Hooverian Principles, but that might not be too helpful. My interpretation is that rolling a hoover means doing something that you know is stupid without any clear sense of what the outcome will be, just to see what will happen. In my case, I quit my job in an uncertain economy to try to start a business. I'm still not sure how that will work out.
