Effing Feline Purrs

Last week I, the peerless Fart-Fueled Flying Feline (Effing for short) was FURious. This week, I’m PURRious. (Both words are spelled this way in my Cat Dictionary. PURRious refers to a cat’s existential mindset while purring.) I’ve been handling these Weekend Writing Warriors posts for Mr. Valentine (aka Edward Hoornaert) for awhile now–but after giving me complete editorial control for […]

Effing Feline Is Put on a Short Leash

Meow  hiss merrow! That’s Cat for I’m mad! Last week Mr. Valentine (aka Edward Hoornaert) was busy and so gave me, Fart-Fueled Flying Feline, complete editorial control. He wasn’t happy about my spelling. He was particularly upset by “He ISnt’ not even goinna eddit mee.” I just don’t see the problem. You all understood what I meant, […]

Effing Feline Flies Again!

Welcome back, humans. It’s me, Fart-Fueled Flying Feline introducing another excerpt for the weekend writing warriors’ Eight Sentence Sunday. My nickname is Effing Feline. Mr. Valentine (aka Edward Hoornaert) tells me that ‘effing’ has naughty connotations. Like I care, right? I’m a cat, after all. I don’t care what anyone thinks. I’m still choosing selections from Alien Contact for Idiots, […]

Effing Feline, March 1

Now that I’ve done a few of these eight sentence Sunday posts, I, Fart-Fueled Flying Feline (Effing Feline for short), am a star!  That’s what Mr. Valentine, aka Edward Hoornaert, says–and he has no reason to lie, right? Unless he’s trying to trick me into doing his job. Think that’s possible? Hmm. No–with my charisma, I […]

Cover reveal — Alien Contact for Idiots

Shakespeare says: “What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet” To which I respond: “What’s in a cover? that which we call a book Inside any other cover would read as sweet” Shakespeare was was wrong, of course–or rather, he deliberately misleads us here, because the […]

Once again, Mr. Valentine (aka Edward Hoornaert) is too @!^&# lazy to do his own work and made me, Fart-Fueled Flying Feline, introduce his latest excerpt for the weekend writing warriors’ Eight Sentence Sunday. Work, work work. I wanted to write my own eight sentences about a heroic Space Cat, but have you ever tried to type with fingerless paws?  Stupid […]
