Catfusion

How to confuse the cats:
1. Re-arrange the livingroom to make it a bedroom. In the process block their favorite passage from the livingroom to the kitchen.
2. Live and sleep in the livingroom for 11 days. Let the cats get used to it.
3. Re-arrange the livingroom back to the way it was.

I did make one little change from the way it was before, I moved a floor lamp from the back of the room closer to the front of the room (from the right side of the sofa to the left).
Heated up a baked trout and some mixed veggies for dinner.Yum.

A few days ago zanda_myrande posted that he didn't like the idea of the next Dr. Who being black. Nothing racist, he's not that way at all. I replied that I don't care what race Dr.Who regenerates to, Gallifrey wasn't a victim of the slave trade, a Time Lord can be any color. Or colour. But I think I understand where he's coming from - making a special effort to cast a black man in the role would be a blatantly political move on the part of the producers. Can't say I agree there, because if that was the case, casting Freema Agyeman as his companion could have been viewed the same way. IMHO she is the best companion of them all, probably the most talented actress of the lot, and I'm glad to see her continue to get good solid post-Companion parts in the series. There is no doubt in my mind that Catherine Tate was a purely political casting, and one of the bigger mistakes made in the past four years. I'm guessing the producers agree, seeing as they have brought back Billie Piper, Elizabeth Sladen and Freema, not to mention John Barrowman, to bolster most of the episodes Tate is in.

I think if they cast a black person as the next Doctor, how political it is would depend entirely on who they choose. There's also some talk on the Cardiff side of the pond about what blasphemy it would be to cast and American. So I propose to kill both birds. A poll:
