Deranging the Strange Arrangement With Grainger–Now With Bonus BAMN!

A box has arrived for the human female. Well, I don’t know if I’d call her “one who gets things done,” but I certainly am. You see, this box represents several weeks’ worth of first-class mischief. Humans are clumsy by nature, always dropping things and breaking them.  Last semester, the students broke a number of […]

Well, Now We Know What “TS” *Really* Stands For.

For many years, the part of the University that handles parking permits, parking enforcement, and bus services was known as PTTS—Parking, Traffic, and Transportation Services. They changed that a while back, though, because students, faculty, and staff, universally pronounced this as “Pits”–as in, “Parking on campus is the pits.” What was the new moniker? “Transportation […]


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 […]
