I always thought the "under" people simply didn't understand the basic concept of TP. "Over" is how it should be, so the first sheet is easy to find and the wad you need is easy to tear off, right?
Then I thought about Emma's brief dabbling in TP unrolling, and "under" now makes perfect sense. Even the most obsessive cat can't easily unspool an entire roll when it's facing the other direction.
He used to put his toys back when he was done playing with them. He comforted me when Rick and I broke up and he protected me from the usurper (sitting between us, sitting on Rick's feet) when we got back together. He eventually relented and decided he liked Uncle Dad after all -- especially his stinky shoes.
We've had a few extra years of bonus time since his first big illness, and what we got back from the vet then was a new kitty: snuggly, affectionate, demonstrative and communicative. His last few years were a gift, and I'll be grateful to him forever for that time.
We don't know for sure how old he was, but he was probably around 18. He had a good, long run with folks who loved him.
He went gently, with his head on my arm, and gave a lovely (and uncharacteristic) little warble/purr as he drifted away.
I want something specific. I want it to look like I have some filigree bolt mountings riveted to my chest, but they should be kind of sparkly. And I want them connected to each other with a few strands of sparkly chain-like stuff, to accentuate the shape of nothing in particular. It shouldn't accent my shoulders or my boobies, my cleavage or even the neckline. Just kind of string up some stuff randomly. It'll look fine. Ideally I'd like it to contrast against a cheap jersey t-shirt in aqua, or to just disappear entirely against black.
I'd really like it if I could look like I'd just ran into a glue-covered findings cart.
Oh, thanks, that's terrific. Just what I had in mind. But I think I'll wait until it goes on sale.

Any thoughts on what they could have been doing?

Clicky on piccy for the tasty.
I got mine last night and they are utterly gorgeous. Many of them will be grilled and tossed with pasta tonight. YUMYUMYUM
ETA: Sauteed with a little Irish back bacon, a splash of reduced riesling and tossed with lemon zest, fresh-picked chives and shaved parmaggiano.
