Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

About a month ago I posted Part 1, Part 2 all from a hilarious email from a friend of mine.  And then a Kitteh version because teh pooties insisted on equal time.

Well, my friend emailed another batch, and while admittedly not as ROFLMAO as the first batch (my favorite:  the "peed on Yoda I did" terrier), we all need a laugh and a bit of sharing the angst of an owner who time to take a mug shot at the scene of the crime rather than get angry.

With bad news all around us (the failure of Congress to get serious about firearms, Chained CPI, damage from the unnecessary sequester, insane Republicans shooting off their big mouths, and on and on), some humor becomes not just welcome, but necessary.   So here I go again.

WARNING:  You know what you're going to get here, so if you don't want to see these pictures, leave now.  Nobody forced you to click on this diary and nobody is making you scroll down to view the pictures.  

Join me below the cheese curl (I won't post pictures above it so I don't get anyone saying a picture appeared on the bottom of their screen that made them look).


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Just a bit of filler here to make sure pictures need to be scrolled to (yes, the whining was that bad in the earlier diaries).

I'm also working on one that features clever recycling and reusing hints for the near future.

Update:  While she won't hold still for a paper sign, I just caught my pootie Misty.
I use the patio door draft dodger as a bed so all the cold air gets in.
