In other news, I recently spent some $3,000.00 on a three year old cat. The correlation between the two numbers has not been lost on me, and I fear what his old age will cost me. However, he's rather cute and lovable and snuggly and I suppose I can forgive him for his stupidity.
(This is not the injured party, though she would like to get some share of his reward for pain and suffering for her life was also disrupted and that is Clearly Not Allowed.)
For, you see, he injured himself jumping off the kitchen counter. Well, falling off, if I am to be honest. He made a mad scramble to jump off because he knew he was about to be scolded for being where he KNOWS he does not belong, and chose a piece of paper on the corner of the counter as his launching pad. It failed to provide the support he required and evidently cats need at least four feet vertical distance to get their feet back under them.
The more you know, I guess?
In other news, I have finished my father's Christmas Socks. I still need to weave the ends in, but that shouldn't take too long. I've also purchased my mother's yearly calendar (www.despair.com - love their stuff, as does my mother.) and a welcome mat for their new home. Three Christmas gifts done, way too many to go.
I have, however, started figuring out my Christmas Knitting. In theory, it would be a good idea to do that a bit earlier in the year, but I work best under pressure. Or something.
I have to say, the iPhone 4 takes some very nice pictures. I'm very interested in what the iPhone 5 will be capable of managing.
Other random observations:
- Beer is a wonderful, wonderful thing.
- Good friends are worth everything they ask or require.
- Friends who can't be bothered to call or text more than once a year? I am done with you.
- My mind continues to be as weird and random as ever.
