About 30 minutes ago I dropped a pomegranate seed. I quickly scurried to find it–I’m told pomegranate juice stains permanently–but I never did. Not inside the chair or on the floor or in my lap. It was just…gone. I was starting to think that perhaps I hadn’t dropped it at all, that it had fallen into my mouth or back into the bowl. And then, a minute ago, I located the seed. It was in my bra. It’s really too bad this week’s Photo Friday theme isn’t “E is for–.” E is for Embarrassing.
Every 30 minutes or so an ant crawls across my laptop screen. My location is irrelevant–at the table, in the lounge chair, on the sofa. I haven’t seen ants IN any of these places. Is it possible that there an ant colony IN MY LAPTOP?
Chapin the Cat is asking for food almost constantly these days. I typically feed him twice a day, but lately he eats most of what’s in his bowl quickly and immediately starts begging for more. I only indulge him at night because I don’t want him to wake me at 2 in the morning asking for a refill. As one might expect, he seems to be growing. And growing. And God, is he growing. Have I ever mentioned how huge he is to begin with? It’s like one of those bad Japanese films from the 50s about nuclear experiments gone awry–anybody ever seen “Mothra”? I’ve got freaking Catra living in my house.
