Chapter Nine, In Which Annabelle Explores the Mysterious Mansion

“Hello?” said Annabelle, not expecting anyone to answer. Timidly, she entered and walked from room to room: through the library with dusty cases of rare first editions; up the grand staircase with its ornate carved posts, into the luxurious master bedroom. Floofwynne Manor had been deserted for years, she reminded herself — and yet, she couldn’t shake off the strange feeling that she was not alone…

    One of us lies; the other tells the truth……;

      So come inside and meet the missus. Have a cuppa.

    Sounds like the start of the best survival horror game ever.

    • Starfish March 3, 2016 / 6:28 pm

      A NTMTOM-scribed game would be a must-play.

    I think I need to visit Floofwynne Manor.

    How did the human coax them to strike the same pose at the same instant? Nicely done! (or maybe the kittehs came up with it, and then they were like “hurry up and take the picture!”)

      Spider on the ceiling at Floofwynne Manor.

        Jen8, I’m with you. There is definitely a big old spider up there.

        How to know when your place has bugs.

      Our cat has been staring at the ceiling in the bedroom for the last week. Staring hard, all big-eyed and yowling. She sits on the bed all fluffed and focused, and stares upward. Why? I look up too, and I just see ceiling. And the overhead fan. Aah…

      We think she has discovered Ceiling Cat – her reflection in the fan blades. Boy is she freaked! And in the last couple of days she discovered Ceiling Cat in the downstairs ceiling fan too. Ceiling Cat is everywhere. Ceiling Cat is a wrathful Cat. There is no escaping Ceiling Cat.

    This one made me laugh out loud, confirming my co-workers opinion that I’m a bit strange.

    NTMTOM, we are going to be relying on you heavily to get us through campaign season this year. NOW MORE THAN EVER.

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike March 3, 2016 / 7:27 pm

      You can count on me, Mal, because this blog is going to be yuuuuuuge! I’m going to make this the classiest, most luxurious blog, you won’t even believe it! And I’m going to build a wall around Fox News and make them pay for it!

        The only laugh I’ve had about politics this year.

      • Mr. Max March 3, 2016 / 8:05 pm

        ACK! HAHA HAHAHAHAHA!!! But which of your lovely NTMTOM acolytes will you take to wife once Melania reaches the horrid old age of 40 and you find the need to kick her to the curb? (I’m sure the old “I’ll take 2 20s for a 40” would be involved in this transaction.) Just make sure at least one of them is from an eastern European country so you remain consistent on your inconsistent stance on immigration.

        Could we have a cage match between Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump? Maybe have Roger Ailes or the Koch brothers for the tag outs?

        • Mr. Max March 3, 2016 / 10:32 pm

          Please tell me none of them would wear those revealing spandex shorts.

      • Kay Fabe March 3, 2016 / 9:23 pm

        The wall will be of the finest Italian marble with solid gold guard stations.

        I just can’t watch the debate tonight. I saw on twitter they were discussing the size of their genitalia. I’m out.

        • Mr. Max March 3, 2016 / 10:34 pm

          See my comment re: genital size on the ERMAGERD post. It applies to these clowns.

          Seriously, whatever Obama’s faults he has generally maintained a very Presidential air of dignity. TOTALLY lacking in most of the GOP contenders.

      • Murray March 3, 2016 / 10:28 pm

        Fabulous. I have friends there already, maybe it’ll be my next home. `~)

      • Phred's Mom March 4, 2016 / 10:11 am

        Cape Breton Island will have to be the size of
        Greenland judging from some of the comments
        I’ve seen around the interwebs. Perchance
        Canada will need a wall also. Mars is looking
        better and better.

    Classic NTMTOM.

    Staircase to Cat Heaven. The Goddess Bastet hovers above our two pawmaidens mesmerizing them with her bejeweled form.

  8. Mr. Max March 3, 2016 / 8:07 pm

    Is there a dark, handsome stranger with a mysterious past lurking here somewhere? That seems to be requisite for these gothic romps.

  9. birdcage March 4, 2016 / 8:56 am

    Gosh, sucks not to be able to see any of these posts.

  10. murkle46 March 4, 2016 / 9:49 am

    • Haha March 4, 2016 / 10:00 am

      This made me laugh, I fear more than it should.
      And yes, I would feel compelled to go see.

    • Faye March 4, 2016 / 10:19 am

      That invite would get me to walk up the hill. If you knew me you would know that’s saying a lot about my love for cats.

    • Catwhisperer March 4, 2016 / 1:49 pm

      I also found this hilarious. And now I have to go check out Weirdness is Good!

    • murkle46 March 4, 2016 / 2:55 pm

      I would be helpless to not go in.Glad you got a good laugh from this,like I did.

    • Murray March 4, 2016 / 6:38 pm

      I think the cat wrote that.

      • Faye March 4, 2016 / 7:16 pm

        Ahhh. Sly kitty.

    here is a kookabura wearing a cowboy hat

    • Murray March 4, 2016 / 6:29 pm

      I’m as disgruntled as a kookaburra in a cowboy hat!
