What do their facial expressions mean to you?

Tonight’s two-parter took some decompression. Louie isn’t the kind of show you can just watch and turn your mind off to.

A Quick Survey

The cats are here to draw your attention.

The cats are here to draw your attention.

Greetings!  During this intermission in posts, I am asking my readers for a favor.  I have set up a survey to explore some hypotheses I have around the word “feels,” used as a count-noun.  You don’t have to know what that means. You don’t have to know what anything means.  But you do, if you have a minute, have to complete the survey.  Or, bad things will happen.

Here is the survey.  https://www.quicksurveys.com/s/p9CJb35

It goes fast.  It’s only 10 questions.  You’re welcome to go into as much or as little detail as you would like. This is an informal academic type thing, so it doesn’t need to have all that scientificalness.

Thank you so much!
