In much lighter news, The Girl is in the Pacific Northwest! For three weeks! She’s scouting colleges and seeing friends and so on. She’s already in geo-love after just a few days, saying she’d like to live there. Her hosts seem like Very Good People, and I hope to meet them when they come to […]
Oh, for a working camera! Katie cleaned the top of the file cabinet next to my chair with a Method cleaner that is strongly mint-scented. Kioshi won’t let us put the scanner there as intended, because he’s licking the cleaned surface and rubbing all over it orgasmically. (Catnip is in the mint family, and I […]
Yes, I’m boring. I hate trying to think of titles for posts. The girl is off visiting, having left yesterday afternoon. Her cat is frantic. He is very much attached to HER, not US.

Another picture of the youngest members of our household. The kitten has been following Shelley around non-stop, wanting Shelley to play with or snuggle him. Shelley is decidedly NOT interested. Sometimes one of us has to pick the kitten up for people-snuggles just to give Shelley an opportunity to get settled down for a proper nap. […]
By a dark, blue-eyed stranger who walked up to me last night. He looked into my eyes and I was gone! We think he’s about 8 weeks old. He’s very skittish right now, preferring to stay out of sight and away from Shelley unless there’s crack wet food in question. Shelley is NOT amused.
