wildflowers

(no subject)

This morning Shannon and I finished reading Gene Wolfe's Nightside the Long Sun (which I liked but didn't love) and right at the end a character named Xiphias appears. "xiphias??" queried I. "X-I-P-H-I-A-S?" "Yes," replied Shannon. "I know him on LiveJournal!" Hee.

Been listening to Weezer's "Beverly Hills" on infinite loop. A fine song.

I seem to always have a cat in my lap. All three have been decidedly more affectionate than usual since we got back from Hawaii. I would have said that Cobweb is never a lap cat, but if I had said so she would have made me a liar these past couple weeks.

It's pouring rain outside. Ugh. I like it just fine while I'm inside -- the sound is rather nice -- but it makes me very loath to venture out.
