@Mr. B Thank you, Mr. B.
Yep, it's gone again.
It was a b/w animated gif of a dim hallway in which a kitty jumps up and uses a lever--not a doorknob--to open a door and escape into a bright unknown.
Charming, mildly alarming--no one wants a kitty to get out and into peril--and relevant, I thought.
The gif disappears unless this comment is here. Sometimes. Sometimes the gif disappears anyway. And then comes back.
I bet it disappears again once the edit window is closed.
Since when is it unpleasant to sit alone at the bar for fifteen minutes? Alone for a while before a friend shows up is my idea of a good time.
I have a dyspeptic Jew from the American northeast who enjoys the music of Steely Dan and spends a lot of time grumbling about how things are less authentic, more anesthetizing and increasingly unpleasant these days in my attic. Doesn't everyone?
