#WorsethanBAM

Remember my beloved purchasing software, BAM(N)?  For over a year, I tortured the entire University system with it.  It was slow, cumbersome, unpredictable (well, unpredictable as to results; it was PREDICTABLY awful to use), and universally despised.  The University abandoned it, which was a real slap in the face to me, and I vowed my […]

By All Means, Let Us Commence With Obfuscation

Back at work!  The human female has been away from her desk for so long, I doubt she remembers how to do anything. Perhaps her email will offer her some guidance. Well, that’s not much help.  Let’s try another… Eehehehehe!  I think about half of that may be English, but I’m not sure.  Not even […]

A Long-Overdue Mischief Update, Part V: Aggie-Buy is My Favorite Thing Ever

You know, I have written a lot about how bad BAMN was, but Odin’s Eyepatch!  I’m having nearly as much fun with plain old Aggie-Buy! Whenever she wants to order something, she first has to figure out what it is.  She has several old removable racks for the dishwasher that each hold approximately a squillion […]

Dead Cat Ballet: The Overture

It’s that time of year again.  The human female is choreographing the annual Dead Cat Ballet, that wonderfully complex and colorful process of ordering and receiving all of the dissection specimens for the upcoming academic year.  Note that even though the Anatomy and Physiology Classes have switched from actual real live dead cats to a […]

A Blast From the Past

You have read my tales of the Dead Cat Conundrum, which in years past has caused the human female no end of grief.  How to source, buy, arrange shipping for, take delivery of, inventory, and put away hundreds of dead cats at a time.  You have heard me relate that, in this realm of Midgard, […]

Mischief Update—Oh, So Busy!

I know that all the recent pictures of house-clutter make it seem as if I’m slacking, but nothing could be further from the truth.  I have been plenty busy, and the mischief level around here is such that the human female daily threatens me with a kiddie pool full of acetone.   Here is a recap […]

Mischief Update

What with distractions in the form of cat toys, UV reflecting plants, baffling seasonal decor, and whatnot, it appears I have failed to update my minions and admirers on my mischief-related activities.  I shall now rectify this lapse. I saw to it that the ready-made salad the human female had for lunch the other day […]

Mischief Update–Coming in Like a Lion

Sleipnir’s Fetlocks–It is March already!  Time flies when you are having fun.  Let me see if I can bring you up to date. My conniving with the shipping department at The Purveyor of Squiggly Things continues to account for 15% of the human female’s anxiety.  In addition to shipping this semester’s termites early, they have […]

Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.

I think I mentioned that BAMN, my beloved purchasing software program, the crown jewel in my kingdom of mischief against the human female, is going to be retired.   Oh, the countless hours of fun I have had with that, making her look up the product code for things like bull semen, Penicillium mold, and dead […]
