I was discussing the new album with a friend and I was surprised you didn't include any parody of Let it Go from Frozen, when I realized I can't remember you ever parodying a song from any Disney films or other animated films/cartoon shows. Is there a technical/legal reason for this or do you have your own reasons?

Our greatest regret as a species should be the missed opportunity here. I am going into mourning.

If you want to know the real deal, invest in a bidet seat for your toilet. It plugs into the wall and the clean water pipe for your toilet (I don't know the technical words) and takes the place of a normal seat.

The one I have cost $80 $250 on amazon.com and has:

  1. Heated seat

  2. Auto-cleaning and retracting nozzle

  3. Several modes including "feminine" position.

  4. Adjustable temperature, position and strength of spray.

  5. A remote control?! (We just mounted it on the wall)

If you're planning a vaginal birth, they will give you a peri bottle since you are gonna be bleeding like a stuck pig for weeks afterwards. The peribottle is okay but it is only as warm as the water you put in it and has to get refilled. The bidet seat made dealing with post partum bathroom time way more comfortable.

Bonus tip: Depends has a free sample form on their website, and you get coupons with each sample. Worth. It.

Edit: I totally misremembered the price by a huge amount, but here's the link: SmartBidet SB-1000 Electric Bidet for Elongated Toilets with Remote Control Electronic Heated Toilet Seat with Warm Air Dryer & Temperature Controlled Wash Functions, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0128T2HQK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_nsp6zb90C3968

In my experience, still totally worth it.

If you wear glasses/spectacles, you can take them off, extend one of the glasses' arms for the cat to sniff to give your hand and their face a little more separation. Since your glasses are always right up against a very natural-oily spot (your scalp) they will have a more concentrated version of your scent than your hands will. This will let the cat get to know you without you encroaching on them too much too soon. Often with the adoption cats, they are already super nervous from being in the cage, around other new cats, lots of people coming and going so this way I can say "Hello, nice to meet you" in a more controlled way.

When you're getting to know a cat for the first time, especially if the cat is on edge, if you lower your lids to "half-asleep" the way a relaxed cat would, then just kind of look in the general direction of the cat and breathe and blink for a little while (I found it also helps to have your head at the same level or lower than the cat's) then the cat will probably relax to match your energy level. I highly recommend My Cat from Hell (Jackson's show) on Netflix, he goes into detail on these and lots of other techniques for "communicating" with cats! My other favorite is learning the "correct" way to pet a cat. Cats can get WAY overstimulated if you pet them from head to tail, so if you want your cat to be more "relaxed", just gently stroke them around their head and chin area.
