I tell everyone a different story; that way nothing's ever boring
I have come to an entirely new appreciation of the story of Hercules cleaning out the Augean stables. yohannon is a great person to have on your side for tasks like these. Admittedly, we did not divert a river, rivers being in short supply on hilltops like mine. He made do with buckets of water, while I first scrubbed eight litterbox hoods, and then twenty litterboxes, and then I alternated paying bills and peeking into the cattery in amazement.

He cheats, I must say. ("I can't keep up with you," I said, mildly distressed. "Well," he said, "I didn't take my ADHD meds." *giggle*)

The cattery floor has been FOUND again. I shall, when I return, break out a library book I've been saving, and sit down on the freshly de-icked couch and see how many obese cats can fit into my lap at once.

Tired, but happy. Thanks, babe.

How many cats remain? I'm trying to convince my mother-in-law that she will really love a Maine Coon.

Three Maine Coons, but to be honest, you would be better off finding your m-i-l a breeder somewhere closer to you. One of the contributing (not major) factors to my quitting breeding was how !@#$ hard it became to ship animals via air. And I'm doubly twitchy about placing adult animals at a distance.

You're Welcome...

...and thank YOU for the box o' electronic gear. I've already stripped the iBook down to spare parts and back again (yes, I can do that. I actually LIKE doing stuff like that. It relaxes me. I *am* a professional...at least when I'm working). However, I *still* haven't gotten the battery charging yet. I might have to do some more research on it. I'm certain it's a matter of one of the connectors not making proper contact (it recognises that the damn battery is there, so why won't it $#@$@!!! charge?!).

Remember: Don't wait so long next time. I much rather it was just at that "just past managable" stage, as opposed to crisis level Augean. ALso, a tip: I work even faster when loud, rythmic tunes are being blasted. If I had been thinking I would have had you break out the U2, REM, and anything else you would think up to the task. Wear goggles to protect yourself from flying debris.
