The topic: Brian’s going to the bank


to deposit the house payment and then over to Home Depot (I added floor wax to his list). He says "I'm leaving!" and I yell back "bring me ice cream!" (A couple of weeks ago we agreed to not have ice cream during the week - Monday through Thursday and so far it looks like Sunday ice cream isn't a good idea, either, which leaves Friday and Saturday. Unless we go to Disneyland during the week. We can have ice cream at Disneyland any day of the week. Except Saturday. And that's just because our passes don't get us in to the parks on Saturday. Or major holidays.)

He tells me "no ice cream".  I want ice cream! "Well, I'm gonna sit here until I get my ice cream" I respond. He says "then you'll be sitting there for a while". 

Great! Now I have an excuse!

The topic: Well, Rocky seems to be


More interested in the house activity this morning. 

He ate last night and I actually heard him purr. He was rubbing his face all over.  With him the only cat in the office and watching him have a hard time navigating all of the stuff that's piled up on top of the file cabinet over the years, I moved a bunch of it and made it easier for him which makes it better for me since I won't be worried he'll hurt himself.

He'd only eaten half of what I brought in last night, so I moved the bowls to a place where he'd have to get down off of his tower. This morning all of the bowls were empty. Good on him!

I left the office window open for him to watch if he so desired. At one point while I was still in here, I watched him looking outside and he was so intense his body was vibrating. Seriously, that's the only way I can describe it. It was amazing to watch.

Sadly with the office door closed overnight, Mario has gone back to under the sofa, which makes absolutely no sense. He slept in the bedroom under the bed after weeks of sleeping ON the bed. mad

I don't think the door will be closed for long, though. The other cats are really showing almost no interest in Rocky. That will probably change when he comes down. But if he gets to a place where he knows he's safe and won't be attacked, it really shouldn't take long for the integration.

The topic: Sitting here, looking at Amazon


Drooling over camera lenses. Thinking to myself, I say out loud "if I had a thousand dollars to spend on anything I wanted" and before I finished the sentence, Brian just bust out laughing.

Yeah, I guess having a thousand bucks to spend on anything is kind of funny at this point in time.


I remember those days.....
