And now, some completely unsolicited observations:

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.

    It is so much more fun to be obsessing over how best to clean mouse pee off My Little Ponies instead of what the surgeon will say tomorrow.

    I stop by to skim briefly and catch up. An hour later, I realize that I can't even say "Hey, good job with what you're doing, I support…

    So, that last post was supposed to be under a filter, and I ended up submitting it too late at night and missed that. Apologies to those whose real…
