Moggies, movies, and memes

Are there any plants that cats don't like to nibble at, rip to shreds, and dig out? My lot have killed every plant I previously owned, except for the mother-in-law's tongue, and that's only surviving out of sheer stubbornness...Yesterday, I took a Madagascar dragon tree home with me. It looked wonderful. This morning, however, it looks pitiful.

I've tried to distract them with catnip. It doesn't work. They'll just savage that in addition to savaging the other potted plants. I'm reaching the end of my tether. And it's not just plants, it's fresh flowers, too. I haven't been able to enjoy a bunch of flowers, or a Christmas tree for that matter, for 4 years now; not since Leila and Clio came to live with me. Aloysius, my sainted and much-missed black tom cat (deceased), was never this much of a handful. He didn't wreck the furniture, either...Am I just unlucky in my present brace of cats, or was my darling boy uncommonly well-behaved?

I do believe that it's time for the Oscars again this weekend. Not that I care two figs, but it'll do for an excuse to inflict this movie meme that I nicked from elsaf on you:

210. Meet the Parents -- how have the mighty fallen! Whatever possessed Robert De Niro to lend himself to this?
211. Meet the Fockers
212. Troy -- what a terrible piece of crap! Sean Bean's the only thing worth watching in it

283. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade** -- as a serious archaeologist, I should frown on these films that portray the profession as a treasure hunt, and one in which there are no holds barred, but...I love them! Though they did make it harder for me to explain to my nephew what it was exactly I did at these digs, and he ended up deeply disappointed to know his auntie really led a very unadventerous life

337. Terminator 3

348. Legends of the Fall
349. The Mask of Zorro*
350. Rudy
351. Signs
352. The Village
353. Gladiator** -- I can forgive Russell Crowe anything...even shouting the grammatically incorrect 'Roma victor' as a battle cry
354. The Bumblebee Flies Anyway
355. The War
356. Gothika
357. Se7en*
358. Hairspray*
359. Love Me If You Dare/Jeux d'enfants
360. Maria Full of Grace
361. Vampire Clan
362. Once Upon A Time in Mexico
363. A Soldier’s Girl
364. Ong – Bak: Thai Warrior
365. The Man Who Cried
366. Some Like It Hot** -- the ending cracks me up every time
367. The Sleeping Dictionary
368. Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run)
369. Sideways
370. Steel Magnolias* -- I think this must have been my very first chick flick
371. House of Yes
372. The City of Lost Children/La cité des enfants perdus
373. Office Space
374. Gattica
375. Playing By Heart
376. Cutthroat Island
377. Flash Gordon
378. Clash of the Titans -- I've seen raving reviews for this, but I can't understand them. One of the worst movies I have ever had the misfortune to see, and see more than once
389. Spartacus
390. Shoes of the Fisherman
391. Medicine Man
392. The Agony and The Ecstacy
393. Lion in Winter (Hepburn version)
394. Total Eclipse
395. Last of the Mohicans* (Daniel Day-Lewis version) -- DDL is the sexiest Hawkeye ever!
396. Gone with the Wind
397. Raise the Red Lantern** -- another of those Chinese cinematographic and story-telling gems I enjoy so much
398. The Russians are Coming
399. Rumble Fish** -- this film has stayed in my memory mostly because of its stunning visuals (and Mickey Rourke, who I quite liked as an actor)
400. Kiss of the Spider Woman** -- directed by Hector Bebenco, this film starring William Hurt and Raul Julia as two cellmates coming to a better understanding of each other, is one of my all-time favourites
401. Cat On A Hot Tin Roof** -- for a time, this film seemed to be on constant repeat on one particular channel, and as a result, I've probably seen it more times than any other. Splendid performances by Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor, but I especially like Burl Ives in it -- especially when he holds forth about 'the powerful odour of mendacity', and his daughter-in-law tells him "Why, Big Daddy, I don't even know what that is!"

And, as this meme sort of ties in with the previous one:

List of the top 110 (alleged) banned books.
Bold the ones you've read.
Italicize the ones you've read part of.
Underline the ones you specifically want to read (at least some of).

Not seen The Princess Bride? What have you been doing?!
Feb. 27th, 2005 10:45 am (UTC)
I don't think it ever came to cinemas near me...and it certainly never comes to any TV channel ear me, either.So for a while, it was a great mystery to me what all the fics mentioning it were referring to. I have since read the book, about a year ago.
Feb. 27th, 2005 10:47 am (UTC)
And did you like it? I love the book (must read that again...)
Feb. 27th, 2005 11:00 am (UTC)
Oh yes, I liked it. It was funny.
Feb. 27th, 2005 11:51 am (UTC)
you've not seen Goonies, read Sherlock Holmes and don't like Little Shop of Horrors?!! ..right that's it - *unfriends* hahahaaaaaaaa lol - can you tell I still haven't picked up my CV yet .. when I have time to read memes of this length and write rubbish.

mmmm Val Kilmer in a dress. yes indeed.

I don't think the cats would go much for cactii!

reality sucks. I love your profile statement :)!
Feb. 27th, 2005 03:09 pm (UTC)
you've not seen Goonies, read Sherlock Holmes and don't like Little Shop of Horrors?!!

Oops! That's an oversight -- I do like Little Shop of Horrors! It's the one where the plant goes "Feed me!", right? I need me one of those to keep the cats in line!

I don't think the cats would go much for cactii!

Problem is, neither do I...

I love your profile statement :)!

It's the motto I've lived by pretty since puberty, I think...:-)

And I love your bearded!Eric-icon!
Feb. 27th, 2005 02:40 pm (UTC)
God, I love your new layout more and more. All that shirtless Spike... Mmmmm.

Re: plants and cats... I have lots of plants, but they're all at work. I have found NO plants that cats will leave alone, not even cacti, which I love. I love both plants and cats and they only way I've found to enjoy them both is "separate but equal." I get a lot of comments and compliments on my "ecosystem" from officemates.
Feb. 27th, 2005 03:12 pm (UTC)
We're not allowed plants in the office...There are a few fake ones as part of the office furniture here and there, though...
Feb. 27th, 2005 03:51 pm (UTC)
Two words...
"Pet Grass"

You can buy it at any pet store. Its specifically for animails, cats especially, it grows, you water it, they eat it.

Works wonders.
Feb. 27th, 2005 03:57 pm (UTC)
Re: Two words...
Thanks, but...that's the catnip I was talking about. Won't deter them from wrecking the other plants, I'm afraid. Plus, they completely demolish that, too.

I think I have no choice but to switch to plastic plants and silk flowers...and even those might not thrive around my moggies. ;-)
Feb. 27th, 2005 04:10 pm (UTC)
Re: Two words...
You grow your own catnip or the kind you can buy dried out in a container??

The grass I'm referring to is natural grass you grow yourself for your pets.

But if you mean you have 'live' catnip and that doesn't help either...
Feb. 27th, 2005 04:37 pm (UTC)
Re: Two words...
Yes, it's the Grow Your Own-kind I've tried...what a mess that gave! I don't think I've ever even seen the dried-out stuff.

Of course, if I was really serious about keeping my plants alive, I would have got rid of the cats years ago...;-)
Feb. 27th, 2005 08:34 pm (UTC)
Re: Two words...
Meh... who needs plants anyway ;o)

    That must have been so hard, on both of you! Now she can settle in and you can relax.

    I feel your pain - it took me weeks to clean Frank's room.
