nina athena

got me this sweet two-year-old at the local animal shelter. she is perfectly healthy and perfectly well-behaved now that i have taught her not to eat houseplants. beloved and i are both completely infatuated with her.

more to come.


yo yo yiggity yo

yes, i bought myself juno as a graduation gift, and yes, i have been watching it just so goshdarn much.

so. hi! i am officially a master of library science now, and beloved and i are officially moved into below house, and we have both officially started working full-time, which means we might officially be adults.

unfortunately we are also officially comcast customers, which is terrible. the university internet hookup spoiled us rotten, and now it takes about three hours to download a PDF, youtube is a forgotten dream, and last week i broke personal records by going a whopping 5 daytime hours without checking my email. because i couldn’t.

so i would post pictures of the new pad but y’all wouldn’t see them until next wednesday anyway.

I’M KITTY SHOPPING! my grad gift from beloved is a kitty cat. we always considered ourselves dog people, but i have been meeting so many lovely kitties lately. i think because i hang out with so many librarians. we don’t even necessarily want a kitten, which seemed like it shouldn’t be too hard, but i’ve had a disappointing experience with craig’s list—probably shouldn’t have contacted someone called “princess_troy69” in the first place.  in the meantime, a neighborhood cat has adopted us, mewing on our porch in the evenings and sitting on my lap and purring while i read. i called the number on the collar to see if he was lost. later his owner left a message saying he wasn’t lost but he’s been staying outside lately and they were looking for a new owner for him because of allergies. i called back and left a message saying PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR KITTY, I LOVE HIM.

i’ll let you know what happens.

and as soon as things get calmer i’ll put more reviews up…
