Afternoon yowls, Big Beautiful Cats... currently sunny and mild, but humid on the tame prairie, after some rain yesterday... anyhoo, this is sort of a hit and run posting, given this Big Cat is just overwhelmed with her current workload at the house, and she's attempting to get more writing done... so, yeah, there's been an ongoing saga with centurylink, what a screwy system, which has been a huge consumption of TIME... and who knows if next month's bill will be correct?... to be clear, the Kougaress is NOT complaining about the equipment... that seems to be a-okay... but the customer service, even though the agents are nice, well, they don't have much to work with as far as actually solving problems... then, there's the ongoing problem with firefox's horrible black screen, which has hit way too often, and has devoured more TIME... okay, this Big Cat has tech-done what she can to stop it... and it's not like the screen comes back after a few minutes, oh noooo!... and there's NO WAY to turn off the computer correctly... so, that means essentially pulling the plug, which then SCREWS everything up, and takes a half hour or longer to get straightened out again... yes, this Big Cat still has XP... however, the deadly black screen is NOT limited to XP users... part of the problem could be the endless updates by Microsoft... obviously NO SUPPORT for us antiquated XP-users 'does not' mean no more updates... and gosh, given what this Big Cat has learned about Windows 10, she WON'T be touching that 'free' operating system with the proverbial ten foot pole!!! It's nothing but surveillance-spying and selling your data out the wazoo, all while using your bandwidth to update other people's computers... what the hell is that???!!! so yeah, the Kougaress had a bit of hope she could update, well knowing it would be a big-brother program... but, gosh, Microsoft has gone off the deep end... and even though, the Kougaress DOES NOT want to use Google's Chrome browser if Firefox doesn't quit with the black screens, she might have to use that Goo-Borg, spy-assimilating browser... yikes! ... so, a couple of evenings ago on the good happy side of life on the tame prairie, this Big Cat went outside and saw a baby toad, who was so cute, and hung around while the Kougaress cooed at him/her... and yes, beautiful greenery abounds, and it's now August... knock on wood, the pets are in good shape, even though they're older... so, the Kougaress hopes this continues...
AND IF YOU HAVE DOGS...
HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Dogs really do love us: Study finds first evidence of inter-species hormone exchange
17 Apr, 2015
Dog lovers everywhere, rejoice! They really do love us on a chemical level. Dogs were found to make use of the “lovers’ hormone,” Oxytocin, to sneak their way into our hearts. That’s the first time the mechanism was observed between species." ~rt.com~
Authoress news and mews ~
So, the Kougar is now writing both Keina and Drev's erotic love story... and she's started a sci fi menage that she hopes will fit into a small publisher's series... so far, so good.
Here is the first six unedited sentences of the sci fi menage...
At the first terrified scream, Sheena dropped the armful of jungle fruit she'd collected. She seized hold of her battle sword, and raced toward the small encampment of five women.
More screams. The sounds of battle. Goddess no! Sheena's heart leaped into her throat, and her feet barely struck the ground as she ran.
