About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

My Name is spookie—it's a nickname of sorts—and I Have Cats and a Son.


My son is my life. My cats I can't live without.

My nickname online is "spookie," I got it back in the 90's while running an underground server. It was long before social networks, and it was sort of a social network of my own. I ran it using software called Hotline. The big red H. A teacher told me about HL, and I decided, "Why go server to server to...well, do what we did, when I could run my own?"I became one of the well-known servers globally. "spookie" the admin was known by many of the largest HL servers around. I ran the server for almost 10 years.

spookie wasn't just my nickname online. We went to adopt a cat in 1997, and when we arrived at the home, they said she already had a name—Spookie. She was originally Smokey, but the new owners changed it; didn't like the name Smokey for her. She was a shy cat, so they named her Spookie. Spookie the cat had to come home with us! My nickname being spookie with a lowercase "s" and she being named Spookie, with an "ie" just like my nickname. It was meant to be.

So, this is my blog. I'm sure I won't be able to get personal much, because I have some trolls and stalkers from Myspace who will go to any lengths to annoy me, and to get images, info or anything at all to try to use against me, to shut down my advocacy groups and my cat group. Not happening. I'm here to stay, even if I can't talk how boring my day was, or how excited Harry was about a new toy.

Later taters!
