Spring Cleaning and Other Tasks
Meet Tubby the cat. She lives at the Hoggett Farm and Cat Sanctuary. She's very, very pregnant. Mrs Hoggett expects 'either six normal-sized or fewer very large' kittens. Tubby is not alone in her expectations, so we can look forward to more adorable kitty pics soon. We have at least one hidden in the pages of this week's h2g2 Post: beware, they may surprise you.
We also have a new Create challenge coming up on 1 April. It builds on the March challenge by asking you if you've ever had an unusual job, paid or unpaid. Casual questioning has revealed that Douglas Adams' chicken-coop-cleaning gig was not the oddest thing hitchhikers have done. We want you to let us in on your weird resumes.
Please read: the contributors have worked hard on this Stuff. If you don't want to read it, okay, go away, but please don't leave comments unless you have read it. Do not, for example, tell us that you didn't read the answer to the quiz because you prefer whatever you made up in your imagination. Don't get us wrong: you're welcome to make up anything you like in the privacy of your own head (and we encourage wild guesses on the picture quizzes). But please refrain from elbowing the content out of the way. It's rude, and it disappoints the writers and artists when they open a comment, only to find that the post has absolutely nothing to do with their work or the subject at hand. This sort of thing is discouraging.
If, on the other hand, our contributors' work reminds you of something you think somebody else might actually want to know about, please feel free to share. Feel free to ask relevant questions – somebody else might know the answer. If the stories, poems, and videos below inspire you to creative work of your own, please remember that the email address for submissions is postteamhg-at-gmail-dot-com.
kthxbai, as the kittehs say, and have a great week!
