Egad! I completely and utterly forgot to tell you something! HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
Not only was yesterday Christmas Day, but today is the start of Kwanzaa. Wow, just totally overused the word and suffix 'day' there, sorry. Anywho, I had a lovely time, and received several excellent presents including buckets of books, and long-board. Yes, yes, yes, excellent. By the way, mon frere and I have finally decided on a decent cat name--decent in our minds, anyways.
Mister D. B. Mittens.
The irony comes in that we're only using it if we have a female cat, and DB actually stands for Death By. Yeah, we try.
