It's Getting Cold

Not cold enough to wear a coat -- I wore a turtleneck under a heavy sweater today -- but it looks like we've had the last of the warm. I picked up a book at the library today and I don't know where my card is. I remembered what I was wearing the last time I was there, and I bet it's in the pant's pocket. Good thing I haven't washed it yet. Then again, it's only a dollar to get a new card. I got groceries and when I opened my little box, I got a key for one of the big clusterboxes and it had seven boxes. I knew they were all coming, but not at once.

I had a quiet weekend here, getting more reading done and a bit of cat worship. Junie likes to sit on my lap, and Loki actually sat on my lap for about a second (jumped down from the cat castle).

Did you see how a batch of really expensive cars ran into each other to the tune of $1 million?

Beatley said she has spent years researching the abortion industry, which she says tries to get teenagers to be sexually active so they will have abortions later. Erm?

They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

I'd never seen this before so when I was reminded of it, I pulled it to the top of my Netflix list. It didn't seem as dramatic to me as it apparently is to other people. The long part where couples have to keep dancing for days in order to win the prize (which turns out to not be quite what was listed) and the two protagonists give up. She wants him to shoot her, he does, and he goes to jail.
