A house that is enough space for 5-7 people and two cats for a weekend is a very large space for one person and two cats. And a very quiet one as well.
Even with hundreds of channels and On Demand, a lot of the time there's still nothing on. I've been watching it anyway. I have watched more television in the last 24 hours than I usually watch in a week. Meanwhile, a gay man and a redneck are clearly fighting over my brain - I've watched Queer Eye and listened to show tunes, and am now watching bullriding. I've considered but not watched The Birdcage, and NASCAR and lumberjack competition. Oh, and the movies I brought with me? Boys on the Side (chick flick) and Smokey and the Bandit (fast cars and lawbreaking).
Macs don't suck just because they're Macs. They suck because I'm a PC user. Have I mentioned I want my own laptop?
I've never had cats of my own, so this is the most closely I've ever observed them, as I'm responsible for their needs. I have learned that cats will happily drink from whichever water bowl is in the strangest place, but not the convenient one in the kitchen. I have learned why scoopable litter is a happy thing, and why litter deodorizer is a happier one. And oh, yes, that cats poop roughly twice the volume and I can't even begin to guess how many times the weight of what they eat. Also, lurking under the bed and batting at any toes that get nearby is a very significant responsibility for a cat. Bonus points are awarded if the cat actually manages to catch the toes. Making someone who's only half-awake squeak is easy. Interrupting changing sheets is more of a challenge, and much more rewarding.
I really really want a dishwasher. It's amazing how much easier it is to clean up a kitchen with one. I've been going back and forth for the last two years about whether I want a dishwasher or a clothes washer and dryer more. I've finally decided I want the dishwasher more.
Wanting to write about something is easy. Creating the correct environment to do it is more difficult. I'm still looking for that telepathic PDA I keep talking about.
The plastic wrapping on new DVDs is a substantial barrier, far more so in the mind than in physical reality.
