Oh, no! I'm so sorry your family is going through that right now. You know we're here for you.

Oh, hey - did josmonkeys (IIRC) ever get the skwerl outta the house or is there a rental agreement for the top shelf in place now? Cuz it looked kinda comfy up there.


Following a comic chase scene last Caturday, my 10-year-old cat. Penny ended up banishing teh skwerl to the basement. He managed to snitch another cracker w/o tripping the trap overnight on Sat/Sun. We have had no sightings since. Penny and I thought we heard it on Wednesday. I got a different trap with a lighter trip touch on Friday, but no action on that front yet. Farker bz922x, who is my husband, banged around the basement this morning to no avail. If there's no action by Thursday, I'll reopen the basement to the cats, and go hunting with Penny.

I am too cool for school! Well, sort of. Work is....slow. Our lack of anything resembling our "normal" winter is causing my boss to stress a bit. Mild winter=no winter-related sales.

I understand you can only sell so many windshield scrapers and shovels, but don't you still sell lotsa wood pellets and salt/de-icer? Or is the former not a big seller where you are?

OK, so here was the damage from earlier in the week.  Apologies for the quality of the photo, but having one eye swelled shut, a concussion, and this being my first ever "selfie" (want to give myself another concussion just for saying that) pretty much equals a crappy photo.

If anyone can photoshop a kitteh into this, then please have at it.  I have no shame or dignity anyway.

Well, at least now you can get to your Parcheesi game without having to worry about getting Bubonic Plague. So that's something. Hey - take what you can get when wildlife is involved. And good luck on the Great Skwerl Hunt of 2014. Maybe Suzy can come and help you out if Penny isn't up for it anymore.

RadicalEd: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Before I go catching up with the thread (and eating my VERY not on my diet dinner, so first day on that is a total bust, ain't it?), I should probably let ya curious types know about my coffee meeting.

So, the concept is this -

There is a place up here in Portland, OR that does something similar. Not so much guest chef, but every month they have a "special" seasonal menu with wine pairings that you can reserve. I think they do a few days, perhaps a week or so? But its kind of the same concept - local, seasonal food in new creative ways, and their thing is to pair it with wines during the meal. We've wanted to try to go to one, but just haven't done it yet.

Anyway, the idea sounds neat and I know myself would enjoy looking forward to a new monthly creation to try out and would bring us back more often to check it out. Not in your area, but still :)


I thought it was a neat idea for kind of the same reason you mentioned - that it would bring people in every month because there would be something new. I know I got burned out at a couple of places that I used to love for fairly quick and cheap food because they never updated their menus. I really don't know that this area can support the concept (when it comes to pricing), but that may be why she's doing the prix fixe a couple times a month rather than trying to open a slightly more Northern version of Saison. That would never fly in humble, laid back SacTown.

Well, I have 1 good thing to report. Landlord came home today!!! He didn't tell me in advance, so it was a surprise! He is still sortof weak and tired, but he looks pretty good, and is VERY happy to be home. I'm sure he will sleep well in his own bed tonight!


YAY!!! High five fur the neighbor/landlord dude! (gently, of course) Getting home from the hospital is always the best sleep you've EVER had in your life!

Pellet sales are okay...no de-icer or snow shovels.  Heater sales have backed off too.  It's about 20 degrees warmer than it should be...and dry.  We do much better in harsher weather.....

Swelling is finally gone, just the bruise and cut remains.  And Sophia was all up on me after I got home.  Of course, I could have been at the hospital sooner if I hadn't had to take the time to clean up the blood on the floor that she found fascinating and tasty.  But she took her insane level for elebenty billion to about 3 for a couple of days, so that was nice for a change.

Holy crap, head injuries suck.  Completely forgot a little update for all of you.  Saturday, I'm going with my "friend" on a hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  She's been there lots of times, and I never have, and she wants me to see the waterfalls that I didn't know were there.  Everything has gone well, no problems at work, no awkwardness, and she came over the night of the accident and brought me some dinner because she figured that I wouldn't be well enough to cook.  All in all, things are going very slowly, and very well.

My bestest buddy for eight years now.  This pic was taken our first evening couching together.

Her predecessor was a pretty special kitty, too.  More about her later...


Squeek? That's awesome, I actually refer to little Winston (the one on the right) as our little Squeeker, because he makes these little squeaking noises when he talks. He's a little shy, but when he wants love, he's the sweetest cat ever

That's good to hear! Slow is good and people who bring you a food are even better. Put those two together and you can reflect later about how you are a chick magnet and that this one seems to be a good little chica to be attracting.
