So it was the end of January and I did some stuff that was probably fun but damn if I know
what. Let's see:
Our desks at work are near the back entrance and it was so cold that we couldn't type
from all the shivering, and also horrible oil fumes often wafted through the open door, too,
so then we would become dizzy and slide out of our chairs onto the floor, and eventually we
started going out to eat when it got too bad. Now a large piece of cardboard is blocking
some of the draft, and actually making some difference, which demonstrates how pathetic the
problem was to begin with. Brrr.
Last weekend Dan came up on Friday and that was good, and we played Scrabble (and he won,
but it was close), and made various desserts, and went to Mandy and Jack's housewarming
party on Saturday night, and that also was good. Lo! On Saturday morning we even braved
the Surly Bagel Store of Surliness to get breakfast, and it was not too bad. And we
discovered that Dan got the same camera for Christmas that we have, which was funny.
Speaking of cameras, there are pictures later on, if you want to skip this.
The cats are bad and cute. Pigeon seems to be losing some weight on her diet, but it looks
like it's all coming from her haunches, so she still has a paunch, but now her hind legs
look kind of... sunken. Or something. Now she is begging for a second early dinner, the
little brat. I will not give in.
My best baby cat at home has been missing for a couple of weeks now, and they say he might
not be coming back. That is a shit idea. He is only, what, twelve? And so active! And
such a baby, always wanting to be carried around in your arms! Sigh.
Went to the previously mentioned Barcade again last week (on a weeknight!) and played games and patted dogs.
What a good bar.
Anyway, I resolve to update this more often, blah blah blah, no promises. Maybe I will, I
am resolving this week to go to the gym every day and so far it is working! Although it's
only been two days. Swim, gym, swim, yoga, gym. We shall see.
Also, miscellaneous photos live here.
