dsl stands for dangerous.
well the d does anyway.
can you believe that this is the first time we've had dsl at home. all these years with a dial up. i think i shortened my life with all the anxiety over slow downloads. and now i don't have to do anything. just walk up to the computer and begin. and we're still really behind the times because it's dsl and not wireless.
but what do i know about these things anyway.
this morning has been completely wasted with puttering and playing with the computer.
but it's friday. and i had insomnia last night.
i did take loki outside a short while ago. i think he will have to pave the way for luna, who, won't let me carry her first of all, and second of all, is impossible to catch. loki stayed right beside me, sniffing everything, his eyes wide and ears pointed. he let me carry him off to certain locations in the yard where i would set him down and croon at him like a crazy cat person. he didn't pelt up a tree or over the fence. he was such a model cat. and when i brought him in he gazed at me with pure gratitude. he knows now his day is coming for being let loose upon the jungle.
but tell me, how do i convince a cat to leave creatures smaller than himself alone?
i wonder how many cats died in new orleans. how many dogs. hamsters. guinea pigs. last night i watched the bbc news and saw nightmarish footage of bloated dead bodies that have not yet been gathered up. let's take care of the living by leaving the decomposing dead amongst them.
loki is curled up in the sun behind my computer. a soft mass of purring fur. that's a pleasing image isn't it.
have a nice lunchtime.
