Went to work. That took most of the day.

Went home.

Caught cats.

Went to folks' house.

Got dogs in car.

Let cats out of car.

Went to store.

Got baby shower presents.

Wrapped them in the parking lot.

Went to baby shower.

Aunt who blocked me on Facebook told me how unChristian it was to block family on Facebook. Has she forgotten or is she trying to apologize or is it just another reason to smile and say nothing?

Hurried back to folks' to get the chickens in before dark.

Chickens refuse to get off nests to be cooped. Must leave them.

One cat returns. It's the one I have to medicate, thankfully. Dog scares her out into the woods.

Yell at dog. Hurt his feelings.

Find flashlight.

Go get cat.

Settle in.

Dog forgives me.

Still missing a cat, but hopefully he's just out enjoying the truly gorgeous night. I wish I had a camera to do the night sky up here justice. It's amazing.
Absolutely beautiful.

So, the question* was do only cool people wear trench coats or are they cool because they wear a trench coat? I wrote down the first 10 characters I could think of who always/often wear the mighty trench, and I have to admit, most of them are pretty awesome.

1. Rorschach

2. Paladin Anderson

3. Bigby Wolf

4. Inspector Gadget

5. Castiel

6. Conner MacLeod of the Clan Macleod

7. The Crow

8. Beetlejuice

9. Gambit

10. Gally (and Ido)

*The Question gets honorable mention too. As does Nny.

It stormed last night and I dreamed that there was a cat on the roof about to get hit by lightning if I didn't get her inside. My sister's old cat Cinnamon was there too, all snuggly and purry as she watched me try to get this strange cat off the roof in a storm. Eventually I managed it and kept a cat on each side so they wouldn't fight and get us all thrown out. When I woke up, the storm was over and both of my kitties were snuggled up with me.

Meanwhile, I have a shopping day with my Mom planned so that should be fun. I also reeeeally need to clean the kitchen, which probably won't be. And do laundry... and finish painting the hall... and spackle the wall in the sun room... I should make a real list so that even if I don't get it all finished, I'll still have a list. Whatever sense that may make to anybody.

The bad news is that Christmas break is almost over and soon I have to head back to Barrow.
This is the first year in a long time that I haven't finished 50 books, probably because of the part time classes and the full time working and all that fun stuff. I did manage to read 30 though.

2010 Read List )

And now I need to come up with some resolutions. I mean, I know what I NEED to do, but there has to be a way to phrase them so that it'll be more fun to try.
