Random Thoughts

If I ever have two male cats, their names will be Hobart and Gilbert.

But Gilbert has to be black and white.

And yes, that's Hobart as in Tasmania.

Shouldn't Americans spell it Tazmania? Like "legaliz(s)e", "materializ(s)e", etc? Just wondering.

I get this way when I'm tired.

Ooh, I just realized I can call them Bart and Bert.

We have two male cats, they're siblings. For reasons that I can't go into more fully [speech delays and confusions of he's and she's] they're called Unis and Rascal. At least it's better than the previous pair we had. Pairs, especially siblings [same litter] are definitely the way to go.

They do, don't they? Isn't that how Taz got his name?

I've only had sibling cats for a very brief time... within a week's vacation from home (both were still quite young) one got run over, and the other ran away. I'll have to take your word on them being the best way to go, mcewen!

Hannah, I thought you liked random thoughts. You seem like a fellow random-thinker : )

And John, I just googled "tazmania" to check myself, and the only things to come up were about "Taz"-mania... as in the Taz of Tazmanian Devil you mentioned. So we still spell it "Tasmania" like y'all do. I guess it just didn't look right to call him Tas, since that "should" be pronounced like "tass" (I guess?). In America anyway it would look like it.
So, the way my American world map spells it, is the way everyone spells it when they're talking about the real place. But really everytime I see it spelled correctly, I mentally read it as "Tass-mania" because I'm so used to pronouncing s's like Americans... And I've seen somebody from Down Under call it "Tassy," which I guess is actually pronounced with a "z" sound- but it looks too much like, well, "Tassy"... like "glassy" or something.
Anyway, I'm sure that was way too long of an explanation of the way I think, and rather useless anyway, but there it is. But maybe it's not really an explanation. Maybe I didn't explain anything at all, and I've only just been sitting here typing away a bunch of words that don't make sense to anyone. Oh well. Like I said, I'm random.

Thanks for enduring my blog, y'all.

We spell it Tassie. But it may sound more like tazzy.
