Carleen is the Chronicles of My Ordinary and Awesome Life, Family, and Thoughts. is the Mostly Wordless Wednesday headquarters as well as the home to several original awards and memes.

The only boys in the house are the Amazing Egyptian Dude and Marlowe, the cat. Perhaps because they are so seriously outnumbered by the females in the house (6:2), the two of them share a special bond. Whenever the AED sits on his couch, Marlowe jumps up on the arm and begins to tap him on the chest.

The tapping will continue until the AED first rubs Marlowe's chin and cheeks, then holds him for more of the same. This has become such a routine that the AED remains engrossed in whatever he's watching on TV, while Marlowe revels in the glory and drools blissfully.
