By now I'm sure most of you are familiar with my cat Widget.

dmfyTRm.jpg

But I bet you don't know how she got her name!

Originally she was going to be called Iris (over my strenuous objections), but fortunately I stumbled upon a children's book my mother had when she was a kid:

i3KvPvkh.jpg

Which was basically Widget as a kitten.

Recently I snagged the book when I visited home, and I've uploaded it to an imgur album. It's full of Widget adventures!

First of all, lets fix the cover:

WNGiu3Yh.jpg

That's better.

Anyway, you should definitely check out the book. In it, Widget defeats a terrifying bear:

Takes a nap in a slipper:

And even tangles with the puppy from next door!

l4EXTwnh.jpg

Wait wait, hang on, that puppy's not nearly vicious enough.

QQDBzu9h.png

There, much better. Super vicious dog, let me tell you.

Anyway, the full book is in this album (with the original, unaltered pictures):

Unfortunately the book is long out of print, so unless you happen to have your own copy, this is probably the only place to read it. Enjoy!

    Ok thinking about it that sounds terrible, I need either a twist or a better romantic con

    I think there's a whole potential subgenre to mine here: the rom-con

    a small part of I think Choke is that he chokes on food in restaurants to get free meals

    and since this was the very last post (I actually got an alert when I hit 'post', which should mean the thread was locked, except the post is there, so it wasn't locked. doesn't make sense!)


    someone just said Benton was "only a resident" because he's about to perform emergency surgery

    funny note, they wrote his name on a board and the name above his was 'Wiley', which is his student's real name. I wonder if the other listed names were the actor's names... went by too fast.

    The thing to remember about American bachelor's degrees being filled with generalist information is that American high school is a joke.

    You can get a diploma while barely literate.

    And there isn't really much discrimination on college admittance either. Oh you might not get into the fancy private school or the top state school, but the second and third tier state schools will let in basically anybody. And the for-profit private schools will let in literally anybody who can pay.

    So colleges have to be general cause half the time they're starting from scratch.

    "Hey Narwhal, how come you're studying English and History at university?"

    "Oh hey, well it's 'cause I figured out early on in high school that reading something and then writing about what I read is a super-easy way to get an A! So I figure I'll just keep that strategy going, you know?

    ...

    What do you mean "what am I going to do after school?" I didn't really think about it, I just had super-good grades in English and History and got into one of the best schools in the country so I figured I'd just keep doing English and History! I was 17 and just really excited that I got to apply to universities and I got into every school I applied to, it was great!

    ...

    Oh you mean what do I want to do with my life? Well what I want to do is wander into the woods and become a hermit, most days, so I gotta admit I don't really have a 5-year plan!"
