I swear, these kittens (very large kittens who weigh over 12 pounds each at 10 months old) have a Death Wish.

I have new babies!  They've been here a week now, and we all are adjusting nicely.  They were nameless until yesterday, but I felt so badly that we were calling them Kitty 1 and Kitty 2, or Fluff and Other Kitty, that I just had to decide.  So, here they are!

Kittehs!!! )

You'll be seeing lots more of them.  Whether you want to or not!

I went to see the movie Slumdog Millionaire without knowing much about it.  I'm so glad I went!  Wonderful!

Ok, [personal profile] emmaco, I promised to try to blog more this year about books, and here goes!  I read Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale.

Here's one of my favorite quotes from the book:

"A cat can make you feel well rested when you're tired or turn a rage into a calm just by sitting on your lap.  His very nearness is a healing song."

So bored.

I've been sitting around doing nothing for several days now. It's much too hot to even think about going outside. I'm trying very hard not to eat. Nothing going on in Sounis. Can't spend any money after going on vacation and being without a paycheck for another month or so. That's a disadvantage of working a job that only pays you 10 months of the year. Gah. Could be cleaning, or doing some work stuff, but I can't seem to muster up any enthusiasm.


I've been reduced to watching old Brotherhood 2.0 videos and...

Searching for lolcats. Sooo cute.

So bored...can't seem to speak in complete sentences.  

I forsee more Dr. Who in my future.

Most of you have probably heard this already, but Checkers was my first cat.  I was about 4.  He was a big, mean, orange tabby and he got hit by a car when he was 3.  The 65477 is just a random string of numbers I typed in when setting up an AIM alias.  I tried to think up numbers that were fast to type.  When I set up an LJ, every Checkers configuration I tried was already taken so I used the AIM one.   Man, am I sorry I used so many numbers now, but it's too late.

I'll tag anyone who wants to do it.

Script Ohio!  Yay!

Edit:  Yikes!  What a rout.

I woke up this morning to the sound of Ozzie throwing up.  In my slipper.  What's with that?  It's as if he did that on purpose.  Needless to say, I have  a brand new pair of slippers now.

I mentioned in one of my first LJ entries that my cat is a miracle of modern science, but I didn't explain why. I will now.

Things like this illustrate to me that we do what we have to do.  People demonstrate that every day, and my little unpleasantness is minor compared to what many people deal with in life.  Keeping things in perspective--that's what it's all about.   Wow.  How philosophical.

Click on both photos of Oz.  He is darling.

Why checkers? Well, it was my first cat's name.

Then I had Polly, then Max and Louie, and now Ozzie. Ozzie is technically Anne's cat, but he lives with me for now.

Ozzie )

Ozzie is a miracle of modern science. He got sick four years ago, and on that Valentine's Day the vet told me he might live three more months. And here he is, four years later, helping me type this journal.

Go figure.
