This apartment comes with bonus catfights outside the front door. Every now and then at some ungodly hour, there is a yowling. This morning there was something like that, and hcolleen had a moment with a really beautiful expression. She froze in place and her eyes opened really really wide, and since her hair was already standing on end due to it being pre-shower morning hair after the night before, the effect was absolutely perfect for that sound effect. (In this case, it is where "beautiful" = "true", because while it was not particularly a pretty expression, it was the most genuine example of surprise that I've seen lately.) (And after discussion with myrrhianna today, it's actually very likely that a lot of the cat-noise is actually mating, rather than fighting.)

Conclusion: I WANT SOMETHING LIKE THAT. Perhaps for the next party?
"Clever Boy" -- Cordelia gets message from Miles in Memory. Ow.
It was 21 years this morning since the Challenger exploded. I still remember Dad trying to explain it. There will be inhabited planets named for you. Someday, and may someday be soon.
http://nodogsonbeach.livejournal.com/265079.html -- why being into cats is essentially the same as being into psychotic tweakers. (I believe I promised this link before being on the wrong end of the set of knives. ^_^ In related news, I met myrrhianna's cats today. Nibiki doesn't like it if anyone else attempts to hold her, and I tried to keep holding her when she didn't want to be held, after being warned. Can we say end-user error, where end user = me?)
Have succeeded at meatloaf.
