“I think I told you people about the little nest I set up for my cat. There's this thing by my bed its a wooden structure that used to be part of something or other but I use it as a bed side table. And its got uhh about 3 shelves, one a few feet off the ground, one a few feet higher then that and then one on top. Now the lowest one Ifigure out I keep my alarm clock and some other stuff on, But the next one up I have recently converted into a little hidey spot for my cat. I put a pillow up there, and I recently added a bit of a privicy curtain to make it look smaller and more hidey, and I put some beads up there for Eris to bat at, and I put a pillow up there... and I sprinkled some cat nip there. Shamash has discovered it, and he's.. its a pretty small shelf, so he's practically falling off every 30 seconds. He's licking his feet right now, to get all the cat nippy goodness off of them. He's been licking the pillow case. He's been kneading the pillow case with his paws. He's been chewing on the beads. He's been kicking himself in the ear in his despiration to get every single little bit of catnip there is. Eris likes catnip but she doesn't got completely nuts over it. Shamash is a classic cat stoner, he's looking at me now as if to say, "Are you talking about me or something, man? Dude don't talk so fast I can't track you. Hey! Shiny thinggggggg." Shamash is fun to mess with. I am going to go up to him and see if I can't mess with him so. Ok. Here's the cat. I am walking over to the cat. I'm poking my finger at the cat. The cat is sniffing at my finger as I circle his face with my finger, he's not batting at me. He's just kinda blinking and turning away. Usually, he'd be doing something else like sniffing at my finger ear other ear ohhh yearh, he's somewhat enthralled. ..... you... deal with one high on cat nip cat. Talk with you all later.”

Major Changes: small survival guide. Gets long. Sort of aimed at teenage changes.

This probably won't be the last time I see people going through major changes. This rambling will probably appear, in altered form, when I publish.

Any seemingly minor change in surroundings, circumstances, or self-perception, as well as landmark experiences, can be the trigger of great, sometimes catastrophic, changes. While the trigger event may seem insignificant to an outsider, there is no telling what interesting events may unfold in an individual person as a result.

Someone going through extensive change is apt to feel out of control, and very bizarre about the whole thing. Whether it's a willing change or a change that's just happening or a change happening very much against one's will, it's still very weird to feel things that have been absolutely certain suddenly changing.

Good Lunatic: exercise, cleanup.

I figured out a way to multitask my way into good habits.

It's a combination of Flylady, an article I just read on the American Diabetes site, and good old-fashioned fun, plus my inability to sit still with good dance music on.

The master plan: Go to Digitally Imported and turn on the EuroDance channel. Set timer for thirty minutes. Dance while cleaning up and doing assorted housework. Keep working until timer goes off.

It's sneaky enough to psych me into doing it. Now, if I can just keep doing so every day...

Show & Tell

I got wibbble's postcard! Yay longhorn cattle! They look so cool! I had storybooks with them in it when I was a kid, and I always liked the look of them.

Little Fayoumis will be taking the postcard to school tomorrow for show & tell, after, of course, a judicious slip of paper was applied with tape over the word "bastard" (not a first-grade safe word). Dude! A postcard from Scotland, from a guy who lives on the same street as a famous author! Nothing cooler in the world!

...well, a few things, but it's high on the list of cool.

Thank the gods.

My Zip disk, the one that was partially caught in a small bathroom flood, is intact. Thank the gods.
