Coffee Talk {In the Cafe}

Coffee Talk {Living Outside the Stacks}1. Have you ever watched TLC’s “My Strange Addiction”? I quit watching after I saw a lady gobble down some of  her husband’s ashes. Kid you not. Anyway, when the show returns on 13 February, they’ll be profiling a woman who eats her cat’s hair. Her favorite way to enjoy the delicacy? Quick and easy, she licks it directly off the cat. Eww eww ewwwwww and that’s not just because cats freak me out either. That show just makes me look at people in a whole new light. And for the record, my weirdest eating habit is that I like to eat Kit Kat bars in a very methodical fashion:

  • Eat the top layer of chocolate and wafer
  • Eat all four sides of chocolate
  • Eat each layer of chocolate and wafer

If you just bite into your Kit Kat please don’t share that with me. That’s just wrong.

2. Vladimir Putin has hired Boys II Men to help boost the birth rate in Russia. I think this is the first time a government has ever shipped inmood music“.  It seems Vlad thinks the group’s soulful sounds and romantic ballads will help get people in the mood by Valentine’s Day so there’ll be a population boom in 9 months. The group is slated to perform in Moscow on 6 February. At his state of the nation address on 21 December, Putin stated that in order for Russia to become stronger “there must be more of us and we must be better in morality, in our competences, our work, and our creativity.” Who says Vlad’s not a romantic?

3. Taylor Swift’s feelings are hurt because people keep making fun of her love life. Or lack there of. Taylor, if you don’t want people to know, quit writing songs about it. In fact, why not take a little time to be alone and figure out who you are and what you want out of life. Have some other life experiences besides dating and breaking up. Enroll in a personal enrichment class: learn to cook, paint some pictures, etc. Just do something besides date.

What had you scratchin’ your head this week?

    My Strange Addiction . . . I just can’t. Cannot. I was done when I saw a woman eating toilet paper, and a guy making love to his car. These people need padded rooms and a 24 hr guard on the door.

    Taylor needs to stop courting the press. In fact, most of the young stars seem to not understand just how this will impact their lives. Stop advertising every relationship, and the minutae of everyday life, and “Viola!”, life won’t be so darned complicated. Who’da thunk? Right?
    And, yeah, I have a cat. I really like my cat. But I’ll be darned if I would lick that cat. Yick to the lick. *shudder*

    • LOL at “Yick to the lick”. That just made my day. I so agree with you, those people seriously need help. Profiling them on TV isn’t fixing them.

      I blame Kanye for Taylor. If he’d just let that girl accept her award and move on, we wouldn’t be going through any of this. I liked it better when celebs left a little mystery. The more I know about them, the more I think they really ought to just stick to reciting someone else’s words.

        Kanye deserves Kim. And vice versa. God help their child . . . to be saddled with those two as parents . . . Lord have mercy.

        • I’m hoping they’ll pull it together before the little one arrives. That this baby will make them take a day off, ya know?

  • Oh jeez, those are all good ones this week! Those are some CRAZY addictions those people have. I’ll admit I used to have OCD. Oh, and not the “I like things clean” OCD many people claim to have. I was really OCD. Seriously. Counting things, rituals. Yup. That was me a LONG time ago. But cat hair & ashes?!!! Are you kidding me?!

    • The cat hair and ashes just skeeved me. I can deal with washing hands and things like that but eating one’s dead husband or licking the cat because one needs a snack? Ewwwww
