By the way, my novel (which I've been working on sporadically for at least 4 or 5 years now) is over halfway written, and 11 months is plenty of time to crank out the last 30-35k words, organize the thing into something readable, edit it, send it to some of my writer-friends, read their comments, and edit it. That's the easy part. Finding an agent and publishing the thing... well, that's another matter.

I was lying in bed earlier, and Bouncer was by the stairs, making these short, weird-sounding meows. I called for her, and she eventually came in, carrying this rolled-up empty plastic food pouch in her mouth. She dropped it on the floor by my bed and gave me a quizzical look. I think it was from some Indian food I had the other night, and I had to laugh. I think the spiciness caught her off-guard.
