And really, what embodies that topic better than a black and white picture of a black and white cat? * * * With this group always smiling evilly at me, is it any wonder I always feel like someone’s watching me? * * * Fred made a REALLY good choice at the grocery store this week, as far as flowers went. They don’t quite look real, do they? Trust me, they are. And they’re gorgeous, and I love him for buying me flowers that he knows I’ll love. * * * I’m still working on getting those Maine pictures put up. I haven’t actually DONE anything about putting them together you understand, but I’ve been thinking about it (“I really need to get the Maine pictures put up… Hey, is that Welcome Back Kotter?”). One of these days. Speaking of cameras (well, pictures), my father’s birthday is in less than two weeks, and when I spoke to my mother on Sunday she shooed my father out of the room and asked if I could order a camera for him just like mine, and she’d pay me back. So all week I’ve been looking for the best price for the best accessories, and finally decided that my mother could pay for the camera, and Fred and I would give him the accessories that make having a digital camera easier to deal with – the rechargeable battery, the memory stick reader – and that way I know for sure he’ll definitely use his birthday present this year. I’m usually at a loss what to send him and settle for flowers. The camera and accessories will be a big hit, I’m sure. My poor grandmother will probably get flowers again, though. * * * I’m currently reading Choke, by Chuck Palahniuk, the same guy who wrote Fight Club, which I never read. I’m 2/3 of the way through the book, and can’t decide whether I like it or not. Though now that I think about it, I had the same reaction to Fight Club, the movie. And speaking of books, Fred was laughing so hard when he was reading Barrel Fever the other night that I thought he was going to pass out. I think that’s the next thing I’m going to read, because I know I’ll like anything by David Sedaris.]]>
