Meet the newest boarder, Dylan, whom Kathy scooped up of off the streets on Thursday evening after a fine meal with perhaps too much wine involved. Kathy named him Dylan as Wednesday was Bob Dylan's 65th birthday. Dylan is now living (temporarily) in the top floor bedroom while we put up posters looking for his home. If that doesn't prove fruitful we will endeavor to find him a home less crowded with other cats.
Dylan is probably around a year or two old. He clearly was raised in a house, as he is litterbox trained and understands various house sounds, such as the pop of the top of a can of cat food. And he is completely comfortable with people.
So if you know anyone looking for a cute cat who is very flirtatious and very outgoing and friendly to people (perhaps a little less so to other cats as Misty has discovered) let us know.

Misty looking down from the heavens edition. He now has a (temporary) new friend on the third floor, Dylan, whom we grabbed off of the streets. I'll be posting pictures of the new guy soon, as I need to put together some 'wanted' posters of him this weekend to hopefully track down his original owner.

Apologies once again for the sporadic posting. Hopefully I can post more often this week.
So Kathy and I were taking the train back from Amanda's confirmation party last week. To keep entertained, we started messing with our cell phones. Now I'm not a big fan of them to begin with, and my service is kept as simple as possible. I don't go for any of that fancy ringtone stuff, web access or photos. I would rather keep the damn thing off.
But in my messing around I made the discovery that Sprint is now offering ringtones by X. Well that changed my mind pretty quick. Now you can choose between 'Los Angeles', 'Sex and Dying in High Society', and 'The World's a Mess (It's in my Kiss)'. Two and a half bucks for 90 days.
So now when some client calls, which is never a good sign, at least I'm now soothed by John and Excene's voices.

Sorry for the large delays in posting, but trust me, never have these guys for a client...
Apologies are also in order for my brother. A while back I got him a U2 Ipod for his birthday. But I should have waited:
This is no joke. Digby has the details, including the probable included bonus features. My personal favorite: La Bamba entirely in English.

Fun with Niece edition.
And off-topic, for some sobering reading on how the politcal far right has its targets set on the Episcopal Church, check out this report from the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. Pastor Dan from Daily Kos has the skinny here. Afterwords, if you haven't already, you can check out Steven Colbert's routine at the Correspondants' Dinner at Crooks and Liars, for a little light respite from the gloom. To thank the brillant Colbert, go here.
