Halfway through this morning at work, I had to admit defeat and take a sick day - I‘m so congested! Started this (unputtdownable so far) book in a very hot bath with peppermint and eucalyptus oil. Pictured with just some of my sick day paraphernalia (I get man colds), some random crap, and my every day buddy #Chloe #catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea

BarbaraTheBibliophage Oh no!! Not you too!! 😰😰 Feel better soon! 12mo
mcipher @BarbaraTheBibliophage Dropping like flies!! 😆 Everyone in my office was sick last week and I was all pleased with myself for not catching it... until Saturday morning rolled around. 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @mcipher Oh man. That stinks. I don‘t even know who to blame my flu on! Hope you can rest up tonight. 😍 12mo

mcipher @CareBear I know! Crazy this year. And thanks! 😊 12mo
mcipher @Itchyfeetreader She‘s just looking for a chance to steal a hair elastic, really. But I‘ll pretend she cares. 😉😆 12mo
shellleigh33 Oh no. I hate to hear that you are feeling bad. I hope you get to feeling better soon my sweet friend. Make sure you get plenty of rest 🤗 12mo
mcipher @shellleigh33 Awww, thanks! I am totally taking it easy and hoping tomorrow this thing turns around. Stay healthy - sounds like this cold is everywhere! ☹️ 12mo
shellleigh33 It is girl. We had the flu go through our house couple weeks ago and it was not fun at all. I am sending good vibes your way. Hope it is just sinuses or simple cold and you wake up feeling refreshed and better in the morning. Our doctor told us to take a medicine called Oscillococcinum that you can buy over the counter for the symptoms. It is a homeopathic medicine that is similar to tamiflu but a lot cheaper and it did help. 12mo
shellleigh33 Have also been told that by one of the nurse practitioners that I work with that black elderberry is suppose to help with flu like symptoms. 12mo
shellleigh33 Just wanted to “stop” by and check on you today. Hope you are feeling better 12mo
mcipher @shellleigh33 I just heard that Oscillococcinum is the best thing! I have been taking zinc and black elderberry. And much better today, thanks!! 😊 Still stuffy but in the mend. Sorry you guys had the flu - kids are the worst with getting sick and I know working in a hospital doesn‘t help. 12mo

Came home to super cool book mail, but these story cards -The Family Arcana- aren‘t in the Litsy database. I love this concept - shuffle and see where the story goes and I really enjoyed his other book, The Manual of Detection. #Chloe is sitting on the tagged book, which was my surprise #Booksgiving gift a couple weeks ago. #catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea
I‘ll post a link to the cards in the comments if you‘re curious. 😊

Texreader That does sound awesome 12mo

Slajaunie 😂 12mo
BookNAround Chloe is a beauty! 12mo
mcipher @BookNAround Thanks! 😊 12mo
shellleigh33 Those cards sound awesome!!! 12mo
mcipher @shellleigh33 I‘m betting they are also super weird - I remember his book as way weird- but in a really fun way! 12mo

#Chloe and I are hoping that this book gets me out of a mini-slump - everything I pick up this week I put down after a few chapters, or feel like I‘m slogging through. The cover is really pretty and so far I‘m enchanted, but I liked the past 3 until I lost interest...

I haven‘t had a beer in ages and I am drinking this one too fast before pizza comes out of the oven, so i feel a little wheeeee! 😆 Enjoying this book more than I expected. I have to finish it tonight so that makes it much easier. (FYI both #Edith and #Chloe are purring away here 😻) #catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea

kspenmoll What luxurious hair your kitty has! 13mo
mcipher @kspenmoll She does! I just picked up a while kitten‘s worth from the carpet! 😆😆 13mo

#Chloe chilling in my lap for neck scritches, and my next two book club books - it took forever to get the tagged one for Wednesday, so I put Exit West on hold for March and it came in right away.
We‘re supposed to bring our list of five dinner guests to this meeting and I can‘t decide who to pick... right now it‘s my old friend Mary, Gabby Bernstein, Kurt Cobain, Jenny Cruise, and Anne Sexton. Your list?

AWahle Beautiful kitty. I have a Chloe as well! 13mo
mcipher @AWahle It‘s a popular name! She‘s a sweet little pain in the butt. 😆 13mo

We went to the casino for dinner and then we had to get Krispy Kreme, since it‘s right at the entrance! I am loving this book so far - it‘s very quiet and full of minute detail about the characters, and his writing is lovely. Chloe wants to step on the donut box... #catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea

kspenmoll Crispy Creme hot ones are a must!!! 13mo
LibrarianRyan If I get out tomorrow I will have to get me some KK. Josh prefers Dunkin but he doesn‘t know what he‘s talking about. 😁 13mo
Crazeedi Your kitty is just a doll baby! 13mo

mcipher @kspenmoll They aren‘t hot, but they were still delicious!! 13mo
mcipher @LibrarianRyan There is NO comparison!! KK over DD donuts any day. 13mo
mcipher @Crazeedi She is cute, but she also just knocked over my entire sewing kit because no one was paying attention to her... 🤨😆 13mo
Crazeedi @mcipher LOL, oh the ornery little furballl! I've known a kitty or two to carry out shenanigans like that!😉🐱❤️ 13mo
shellleigh33 Yummy 🍩 😊 13mo
mcipher @shellleigh33 So yummy! I ate two donuts! 😆 13mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled KK . . . You must live in the south, like me 🤔 ? 13mo
mcipher @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Nope! I‘m in CT. We have just the one around here, in the casino - we have Chick-fil-A there, too, which isn‘t anywhere else close by that I know of. 13mo

It took six or seven tries to get this shot of #Chloe with this book. I am not actually DNFing because book club, but I want to run away from it. The prose is so PURPLE. I read my husband several passages aloud to highlight how silly some of it feels... I don‘t know, it‘s a bestseller, and I‘ve read some wordy stuff I‘ve loved. But this book is like swimming through peanut butter. #catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea

Crazeedi I have to agree with you somewhat, though I did finish it, I was unsatisfied 14mo
rubyslippersreads I felt the same. 14mo
MinDea Awww she's so sweet. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy this book. I quite liked it. But can understand what you are saying completely. 14mo
Texreader This one was not a big hit for me. Not sure you‘ll like the ending either... I found the book frustrating 14mo
Lynnsoprano Yup! I pushed through to the end and then wondered why. 14mo

Thank you @shellleigh33 for sharing the wealth and sending this over to me!!! #Chloe says “When will you actually read this, woman?! Will it be like every other book anyone lends you ever and just sit on the shelf? Like that copy of Lincoln in the Bardo?? It‘s lived here longer than me!” (Chloe is judgey sometimes). 😆
#catsoflitsy #litsypenpals #tuxedokittiesoflitsy

BookishTrish I have a similar copy of Lincoln 14mo
mcipher @BookishTrish That makes me feel so much better! 😝 14mo
BookishTrish It looked better in the store... 14mo

mcipher Oh! Almost forgot to tag you for the Chloe pic!! @MinDea 👍 14mo
BookishTrish ... and I will read it someday. Probably. I think. 14mo
mcipher @BookishTrish Isn‘t that usually just clothes? 😆 I‘ve heard it‘s really good but I‘m never in the right mood to start it. 14mo
mcipher @BookishTrish Maybe we both need to find a buddy read. 14mo
BookishTrish We could start one up. Say in February? 14mo
mcipher @BookishTrish I‘m game! 14mo
BookishTrish Let‘s do this! 14mo
mcipher @BookishTrish Yes!! 👏 You want to do a schedule or keep it loose? I just flipped through and the format is... interesting... 14mo
MinDea 😆😆😆 she's so sweet! I wuv her wittle face! 14mo
mcipher @MinDea That‘s because she‘s not judging YOU! 😆 14mo
MinDea 😆😆😆 Oh sure she is. They judge everyone. They're not judge agnostic! 😆 14mo
shellleigh33 She‘s beautiful. Mine judge me every day too. They are either doing that or trying to give me a high five or maybe it‘s a slap. I‘m going with the high five ✋🤣 14mo
mcipher @shellleigh33 I think we can all agree it‘s a slap that we pretend is a high five. Cats are so mean, they‘re like teenagers!! BTW - I *just* got your postcard from Cancun yesterday!!! How weird is that?! 14mo
mcipher @MinDea True. She‘s probably judging us both for the tuxedo kitty hashtag and not having enough imagination to name our cats different things and who knows what else. 😆 14mo
shellleigh33 My kids‘ postcard came in last week. I guess they really are laid back in Cancun. They said when I sent it off there that it would take a few weeks to get to the states. I guess a few weeks to them is a couple months to us 🤣. 14mo
mcipher @shellleigh33 I have a coworker who‘s from Puerto Rico and he says he does everything on “Spanish time” - maybe that‘s how the Mexican post office works too? 😆 14mo

I‘m reading this on Hoopla and I keep putting it down because it‘s SO gory and sad, and I‘m having a tough time following what is going on. The art is gorgeous, though, and I feel like I‘ll love it if I can figure it out.
This is #Chloe from earlier - she sits like this all the time. 😆 Right now she‘s sleeping and we are enjoying our last Xmas lights night before the tree goes down. 😫
#catsoflitsy #tuxedokittiesoflitsy @MinDea

AceOnRoam She is gorgeous 😻 14mo
BookNAround Beautiful Chloe! 14mo
MinDea 😸😸😸 so cute! Does she just sit like that or sits like that when she cleans? Chloe sits like that but only when she cleans. 🛀 We are also enjoying the last night of our Christmas tree and plan to take it down tomorrow too! Bummer about the book. 😒 14mo

LibrarianRyan By the end of vol 1 things come together. 14mo
mcipher @AceOnRoam @BookNAround Thank you! 😊 14mo
mcipher @MinDea She was having a bath but then she stops and just chills like that for a while. I think she gets distracted and forgets what she is doing! Sad day with the tree - I love looking at it, it makes me so happy. We‘ll see about the book - it‘s so pretty! 14mo
mcipher @LibrarianRyan Oh good - I was worried that it was just over my head! 😂 I‘ll keep trying. I read a good chunk again last night so I‘m halfway there. 14mo
