We bid farewell to the restaurant where I proposed to Mrs P in the weekend just gone. I was looking forward to doing a post on it, but my camera decided to throw a fit and most of the photos from that night are useless. As is often consolation here and in general when things […]Read more "Your Cat Wishes Your Stationery Was This Comfy"
So often a temperamental soul, especially when the camera is on him, sometimes it is possible to catch Pedro in a moment of serene meditation. It’s quite the turnaround to have the little guy change from an almost disdainful awareness for the way I’ll offer him up for our amusement on this site, to this […]Read more "The Many Moods of Pedro"
So it’s 11:23pm and I’m running out of time to put a post together for today. So I’ll dial up a few images from today’s shenanigans, starting with my attempt to recreate Sassy Earl Grey’s Browned Butter Earl Grey Tea Pound Cake with Sweet Yellow Peaches and Vanilla Drizzle. 300g of butter later I’m not sure […]Read more "Peckish Sr’s Birthday"
The Peckish Kiwi, my second member of staff, he’s busy feeding me and generally attending to my happiness. I’m terribly sorry, but The Peckish Kitty comes before The Peckish Kiwi you see. In the meantime, I hope you’ll be placated by my face of false contrition. Quite a useful face, also works well after I’ve […]Read more "Apologies, My Non-Furry Friends"
Try as I might to get into interesting little food adventures on a daily basis, I often strike out. I mess up the food, mess up the photography, or am too uninspired by what I’m eating to make a blog post that will stand on its own. However, this is about as close to a diary or […]Read more "Blogging Outtakes"

My wife often asks me why I make things hard for myself. I’ll do everything I can to unload the shopping from the car in one go, hunt around for my keys in the dark instead of turning the light on, etc. Two in particular are not putting what I’m holding down so I can […]Read more "Petty Vindications"
Seriously? You made all those Salmon Potato Cakes and not one morsel for me? “Easy Mentertaining”? How come neither me nor my brother man Napoleon get a piece then? I am NOT entertained.Read more "Everyone’s Cat is a Critic Part Two"
Look who turned up at 6:50am at work, demanding entrance. Like any forthright feline, it sought satisfaction without even extending the courtesy of eye contact.Read more "New Client Policy – No Cats Without Appointments"
Brevity? Love it. Not a master of it by any means, but I appreciate skilled practitioners. It has a special appeal for me in motion picture. So much today strains to provide origin story and exposition, no matter how many plot muscles it pulls to do it. Flashbacks to life before crashing on the island, […]Read more "The Bad Nappers’ Tee Party"
