My mom received an email from Petster today. That's where she put our pictures after we left Catster. Petster isn't very fancy, but we like it because it seems intended for grown-ups and there's not lots of role-playing crapola going on. You are supposed to be over 18 to join, but there's no real way for them to check on that, of course.

Anyway, here's part of the email, in case anyone is interested:

We're sending you this email to let you know that we've Upgraded Petster with a new look, better email and password management, a more stable and secure platform, plus more.

Additional functions we think our members will appreciate are the ability to create Custom Themes for your profile pages to reflect your own personal style; a new Blog function where you can create detailed journals about the growth and activities of your favorite pets; and an unlimited number of pets for each member's profile page, as well as the ability to upload just as many pet photos to your profile as you can stand.

Incidentally, Cleo and I have links to our Petster pages in our Live Journal profiles, if anyone would like to visit us there. If you would like to join Petster, please use this link. We get prizes for referring kitties.

I will surely think about it, but if we have one more blog, journal, or internet activity then we will have to find a way to make money by being on the internet... it's all very time consuming what with LJ, Catster, [which I have totally neglected lately] myspace and blogger. I swear, I used to think people that I knew were crazy for having all of that -- now I'm one of them hehe. Not to mention having to keep up with emails, which I have also neglected. I go through spurts my main addiction right now seems to be myspace. It's all very confusing!

Thank you for letting us know about it and we will definitely check it out tomorrow!

We haven't really decided where Petster fits into the mix. I'm not even sure that it does except as a place to have some photos of ourselves. We aren't really looking for new cats to interact with the way we did on Catster. That wasn't really a good experience for us, so we don't need to do it again.

Our blogs are here and I think this is where they are going to say. It was such a PITA to bring everything over from Catster and we don't want to have to do that again. Anyway, LJ is a better place for our journals.

I don't have much commitment to My Space. It's too hard for me to use because it's so slow. I mean, it's not bad right now, at 9 in the morning but in the evening... Forget it.

Incidentally, I'll mention this here since I can't there. I don't know what the deal is with your new My Space layout. It doesn't completely load and I can't leave comments or read your blogs.

OHH! I just saw [last night, I believe] that Tom... the myspace guy left a message, like if you go to your home page where you edit, check your mail and so forth, that they are still having problems due to the power outage and those were some of the things they were working on. Thanks so much for letting me know because I did just re-do my page. I hope it's myspace having the problem and not my new layout.

I tried to make my layout as simple as possible... I don't purrrticularly like the cluttered look, that's just me though. So you never got to see my surprise then? I can't get on myspace right now -- more "technical errors" When you first go to my myspace page there is this box that outlines the entire top half... you have to click anywhere within that box to activate the surprise... it actually says click to activte. I love having you over at myspace, it takes some getting used to. I actually had a whole month before I started getting into it. I don't know if I told you but I only got an account there so I could communicate with my cousin when he was in Iraq, well, now he's back, but is at Fort Bragg, actually he's teaching at West Point. It's all very confusing and I can't keep track of where he is so that was my main reason for myspace. ACTUALLY, he's in town now though -- see what I mean, CONFUSING hehe

I couldn't figure out what was going on with My Space. I knew that you were excited about your new layout but then I went there it's like, wow, this sorta sux, nothing works. I hate the layouts that are so busy that you can't read the text.

Big brother... yeah.. you're probably watching right now. I'm following the internet recaps but I won't see it for a few hours. I actually cut out of work early so I could do that.

yeah, myspace is still freaked out... more technical errors. Well, maybe myspace page just actually DOES suck! I don't know. well, once it's working you can see if it still acts weird.

What did ya think of BB? WOW 0 to 9 in the voting. FOOLS, I tell ya, FOOLS. If anyone from season 6 gets voted out it will totally be their own faults because you KNOW if Will or Boogie ever get HOH one of their asses will be the first to go -- regardless of their "deal" to get rid of the floaters. I mean seriously, they believe that shit?

With Janelle being HOH I have a feeling she will target either Will or Boogie or both. I don't think she will fall for the floater thing. She's way to smart for that. I will lose all faith if she does. I mean they were given so many opportunites to excell in the game and so far NONE of them have jumped on it. OH well, just my humble little opinion.

I think I would love to go on BB -- I told Kenny next year he just HAS to because I don't think they will let a cat go on. Poor George on that slop for sixty days -- not that he will probably make it that long, but EWWE!

I wasn't surprised that Janelle won HOH in that sort of competition. She is smart. I think everyone underestimated her in her own season because they thought she was just a Barbie doll. She knows how to play the game though.

The nominations will happen tomorrow or the next day. Right now Jan seems to be leaning toward Mike and Diane. That may change though. You never know.

I'm not enjoying this season much. I like it better with all new people because they get to know one another and you get to know them. It's always fun when someone who you think seems okay turns out to be a total psycho or something.

Did you hear Jase saying that he'd be better off on Survivor?! Yeah, right! I can just picture him on Survivor with Kiko and me. We'd be like hunting lizards and eating bugs, while he's trying to figure out how to make his hair stick up like Frankenstein's bride. He'd be like Narcissus, staring into a pool of water and drowning, because there wouldn't be any mirrors.

hehehe! Ain't that the truth about Jase... I think he was just grasping at that point. I'm Survivor -- you'd have to be insane, or a cat to do that hehe I sure wouldn't look forward to the internal parasites!

I'm not liking, or as enthused as I usually am about, this particular BB either this year. That is the whole point of the game, not knowing each other and trying to figure other people's strageties. I think it isn't exciting at all this year. It's like been there, done that!

Janelle is the most brilliant player, I think... I knew that right away last season and she really does well in the competitions, too. I think she's awesome. If I were playing the game, Will and Boogie would be up... no ifs ands or buts about it.

Did you happen to read Will's lips after Janelle won HOH? There was a brief, very brief, glance at Will right after she won and he turned to Boogie and said "We're fucked" hehehehe
