I don’t think our new little friend is much more than two days old, if that. The vet yesterday registered her at “72 hours,” figuring the baby as likely being no more than that. But he also put her in the files at 3/10 of a pound instead of the “shade under 3 ounces” we told them our scales had said (and actually, our scale is finicky enough that she could be as low as only 2.5 ounces).

I was watching golf in between steam cleaning sessions Saturday afternoon while Susan and Nat were in the kitchen working together on Nat’s Father’s Day creations, when I overheard Nat approaching, telling someone on the phone what apparently Susan had said, that “it will depend on what Adrien says.” So as soon as she reached the door, I immediately said, “Yes,” before she could ask the question. Rule of Thumb: Never say no unless there is an absolutely good reason for doing so (in which case, the matter would not have reached me anyway, was my way of thinking). And since finding out what I was saying yes to didn’t change my answer, we’ve at least temporarily taken custody of one of our world’s newest lives. Read the rest of this entry »

The vet told us Pancake would grow up to be a strong-willed cat, and we’ll see many signs of that throughout the five short days she’ll be with us. Here, I had turned her around for a brief video, to which she responded by promptly turning herself back around to how she wanted to nap.

While Susan‘s in the doctor’s office presently deep under anesthesia, I’m out in the bitty burb watching over baby Boo, feeding her and making sure she doesn’t bake in the Houston heat and loving her all up.  She frequently twitches just as she falls asleep.

“who was th woman who starred in sophie’s choice?”

that th question i kept asking through th entire long closing sequences of this morning’s dreaming, but nobody – not even hollis – could remember th answer [which i only “remembered” via a quick visit to imdb shortly after waking]

we’d watched an indie streep flick during lit class. i was sufficiently impressed to want to check out th dvd for another watch. went in th stacks to where it should have been, but could not find it. then had trouble knowing what to ask for, because i couldn’t remember th name of th film and couldn’t remember th name of th actress and at first couldn’t even remember any other films she’d been in. then when i did remember sophie’s choice, even hollis could not recall th actress’ name
