From now until October

After weeks of checking the pool every couple days to see if it was warm enough, yesterday we could finally go swimming.

I've seen some really bad street names since I moved to Texas (Onion Creek Parkway), but I recently remembered that when we lived in Orange County, we lived off of Jamboree Road.

Has everyone seen Robert Pinsky on the Colbert Report?

I think it is hilarious that today is my parent's wedding anniversary.

(In addition to wishing my mom a happy anniversary this year, I also explained what 420 stands for).

Fat Cat Day

Dinah has gotten so fat recently that we had to have a conversation about how we're going to fix it. We don't want to get in trouble with the vet for taking a healthy young kitten and turning her into a hog.

We don't want to punish Corvine (who has always been a healthy, fairly slim cat) by limiting their food, so we're just going to have to get her to play more (she is the laziest kitten I've ever met).

You can click on any of these photos to see them full sized.

This is when we first found out she was getting fat. I was completely caught off guard when the vet gave us a warning about her weight, but I understood when I saw her with her belly shaved.

I think this photo really features how small her head is compared to her body these days.

This isn't the best photo, but you can see how wide she is now.

By the way, Corvine and Dinah have been getting along great. They're best friends.

Why doesn't Mead put kittens on their composition books?

So instead of getting my usual serious poetry writing composition book, I bought a lower-quality notebook because it had Hana Deka kittens on the front.

The food, not the email

On Saturday, Austin is having a Spam Festival.
