Sydney is Feeling Better

Sydney is feeling better, and we are all in trouble...
Steve:

I just realized that it's been a while since we made a post here.  Just in case anyone was worrying, Bad Agent Sydney (or rather Sydney, the real cat who plays her on the internet) is well past her crisis and doing very well.  She's on steroids for her breathing problems, and they seem to help quite a bit, but if anything, she is more cranky and willful than ever.  And of course, she isn't good about taking her pills.  She refuses Greenies pill pockets for some reason (despite loving regular Greenies like kitty-crack) and has learned to glup down a whole spoonful of tuna instantly while leaving the pill buried inside behind.  Pretty much the only way to get it in her is to shove it down her throat with your finger and then rub her throat till she swallows it.  As you can imagine, this goes poorly for all involved.  But she is feeling better.

Last night in the living room she jumped into my lap, then stepped over onto my side table (where the Greenies jar and her hair brush are kept, along with less important stuff belonging to me, like my pad, phone, reading material, etc.) and proceeded to quite deliberately push things off onto the floor, then tried to break into the treat jar.  

When I took it away and gave her a couple treats before relocating it out of her reach, she went back to pushing things off, and then started pawing at her brush.  Then I brushed her, which she enjoyed greatly, right up until the point at which she turned around and chomped my hand.  I chased her back onto the floor, at which point she sat on the floor and burned holes in me with her eyes for the next twenty minutes.

That's our Sydney!

For The Record

Sub-Assistant Chris Here:
Sydney instructed me to make two things clear to all her followers:

1. Stoopid humans give her special foods but she disdains them.  Wants cheap supermarket fishy treats, like you.  Sydney is kitteh of the peoples.

2,  Though sickness requires more naps, Sydney is working as hard as ever for all her clients.

Cat Assistant Steve here...

I'm sad to report that Sydney, the real-life cat who has "played" the fictional Bad Agent Sydney these past few years, and who is the inspiration for her diva personality, is quite ill.  She started sneezing and coughing a few days ago.  It seemed to get better yesterday, then went the other way last night.  She was quite warm and lethargic, and lost interest in her beloved Greenie treats, which scared me more than anything.  We got her into the vet this morning as early as possible, and after $400 or so worth of tests (some of which we are admittedly waiting for results on), we still don't know what is wrong.  


The X-Rays show that her lungs are congested, and she was running a temperature of 106 (101 is normal).  It could be a whole shopping list of things, from treatable, to maintainable to fatal.  We just don't know.  They gave her injections of antibiotics and a fast-acting steroids and she is home now.  We're watching her closely, making her comfortable, and hoping for improvement (and that maybe the test results will tell us more).

Sydney could use your good thoughts right now.  If you're feeling generous, you could help out her vet bills by buying her ebook, or making a donation at the button below.  But it would be enough if you just go give your pet a hug right now. (And if you don't have a pet, go rescue one from your local shelter right away. Sydney would like that.)

Sydney:

People ask the Sydney, "why do you not post more of your Bad Agent wisdoms on your blog?"  Well, first of all, Sydney is lazy.  Basically, from the end of last summer till now was all one, big, nap!

Second of all, Sydney mostly reports here on her Bad Agent schemes, but Sydney is too lazy to come up with new ones.  Sydney just copies ideas from other two-legged agents that she hears about!  The thing is, other agents just don't come up with that many new ideas.  Apparently all the old ideas for scams, schemes, screw-ups and rip-offs that Sydney has already written about work just fine! Writers is just as gullible as evers!  It is good to be an agent!

That does not mean that agents does not come up with new schemes now and then.  Sydney will try and pick up on some of them and report them, because just as much as Sydney is lazy, she is now also bored!

In the mean times, notice that Sydney is back to posting most weekdays on the Twitters!  Be sure to follow her at @badagentsydney for your daily (sometimes, mostly) does of Sydney!

You're a Keeper!

Sydney:

Dear Client:

You are a keeper!

Noes, noes, stop with the jumping and clapping.  Is not a good thing.

See, "keepers" is what Sydney calls clients she has stopped working for, but simply not bothered to kick to the curb.  Sydney does not return your calls.  Sydney does not send out your manuscripts.  Sydney does not pitch your books.  Sydney just keeps you in her dusty files, taking up space, until you either go away, die, or somehow become valuable to her.  And it is this last that is the ONLY reason Sydney keeps you around.

How could that happen?  Well, somebody could find an old copy of your manuscript behind an editor's desk , love it and make an offer.  Maybe you could sell your own book by pitching it to editor at conference or workshop.  Maybe your self-published novel will be a hit, making all your old, unsold-stuff hot.  Maybe "Christian Sexy Zombie Babysitter Mysteries" will suddenly become major new publishing trend, and Sydney will suddenly have use for your book, "Who Ate the Baby's Brain, Probably Not My Hottie Boyfriend, But Maybe Me." other than using it to prop up old table-leg.

Could be anything, as long as doesn't not require any advance effort on Sydney's part.  Is like a lottery ticket for Sydney, only cheaper.  Does not even have to go to store, or even scratch off tickets like in McDonald's game (Sydney always shreds them with her little claws before she can read them anyway, kind of like your royalty statements).

So, probably you is worth nothing to Sydney, and nothing is all she will ever do for you.  But maybe you will pay off like little Powerball, and Sydney will swoop in for her percentage, tell you you are wonderful, and then leave!  Too bad you held out hope, and did not to fire the Sydney!

Is bad to be you.

But is good to be me!

PURRRRRRRRRR!

Science proves Sydney not just most important site on the Internet, Sydney IS the internets!

Sydney:

Dear Clients (and World):


For years, Sydney has been telling you she is more important than any of  you.  Now, thanks to Google labs, Sydney has SCIENTIFICAL PROOF of her importance.  See, Google builds uber-smart, artificial-intelligence computer with 16,000 cores.  (Sydney does not know what "cores" is, but number is impressive.  When in doubt, Sydney loves to confuse clients with big numbers!)  Google sets super-smart brain loose on internet to scan TEN MILLION (Look!  Another number!) digital images to see what great wisdom it would learn.


So, what does computer come back and say is sum total of internet, the answer to life, the cyberspaces, and everythings?  Here it is:


Yesses!  It's ME!
Maybes you think this is big joke, but is not!  Reads all about it yourself in the New York Times!

You may begin worshiping Sydney now!  (What, you weren't already?)  


Being most important thing on internet is very tiring.  Sydney will go take 86,400 seconds (See!  Another number!) worth of naps now!  Sorry clients!  No work for you today!


Is good to be me!


PURRRR!
