    Do the experiment. Find 100 people you are very attracted to, interact with them, ask all of them on dates, record the number of yeses.

    I'm sure if I bought a massive cat condo for Meguchan she would demand that I throw it out and keep the box that it came in.

    ok


    That's exactly what Genevieve of cat would do too! I don't know how much money I've thrown away buying her toys that she has no interest in.

    I had a great night of sleep last night, which is not all that common for me. I even had pleasant dreams, which is very unusual. I also woke up 90 degrees from the position I went to sleep in. (Went to sleep with head south and feet north, woke up with head east and feet west.)

    You either swallowed magnets, or you converted to Islam in your sleep.

    I can never get a good night of sleep in a N-S orientation.

    We've got a list, but some of it has been more spur of the moment. We've been looking for a table for months, and finally found one, whereas the local rug shop had their annual sale, so off we went...

    I can take no credit for Cin-Cin, it was my wife's inspiration. I'll let her know you like it. Kitty of course loves having her chin scratched, but she also loves to sit with her chin resting on the side of her bed watching us, and we celebrate her presence in our lives every day, so it really is a fantastic name.


    I can't recommend McCroskey's mattresses highly enough. They're pricey (not quite that pricey, but still), but amazingly comfortable. They have showrooms in San Francisco and Palo Alto but will ship anywhere. Let's put it this way: we bought our day bed from a local mattress and bed chain, and when we told the saleswoman that we didn't need mattresses for it, we were buying them from McCroskey's, her eyebrows went up and she said, "Fancy. Your guests will never want to leave!"


    I'm excited for that too!


    Make it a multivariate experiment: use four different pick-up lines, targeting 25 people with each, and compare the response rates!


    It came shrink-wrapped rather than boxed, does Meguchan like to play with that stuff?

    Meguchan has a nice basket which is designed for her to sleep in, but she prefers to nap in empty Amazon boxes. Said boxes however are much too small to accommodated her more than ample frame. I think she is in denial and believes that she is a cute little kitty, cute she may be, but little and kitty not so much. Another possibility is that she is protesting against the fact that her basket was designed and marketed to be used by dogs.

    I have to say, Genevieve really does like sleeping in the kitty beds I buy her. Unfortunately, after a couple of days she always poops in them. It has gotten a bit costly buying her a new kitty bed every time she does that, so she's been without one for about a month now. Maybe I'll buy her another one.

    Meguchan is also an adorable kitty name.

    Good suggestion.

    Meguchan is ascaredy of shrink wrap, her all time favourite toys are the tops off plastic soda bottles. She will bring them to me and spit them out on my lap (or chest if I'm prone) it means "time to play fetch". I throw it down the hall and she'll run and fetch it back. She also likes (hates) ice cubes, I think that she believes there are monsters living in the ice cube maker and that the cubes are their evil spawn, which she must destroy to protect the household.

    Amazon boxes are easily replaceable.

    Meguchan is at this moment demanding breakfast even though she knows very well that breakfast time isn't for another hour.

    Have you see this movie? One of my favourite classic British comedies.

    I'm pretty sure I have not seen that movie. (I am not even going to lie, I don't know what the movie is.) Does it have to do with kitties at breakfast time?

    Free lesson yesterday afternoon from our head pro. Learned a lot.

    2.5 year old daughter received a flu shot this morning and took it like a f'ing champ.
