08:18 pm: More Sleep
I decided not to set the alarm and woke up at 3pm. I got the trash and recycling out and since I felt really tired, I got some Popeye's for dinner. I was just in the bedroom changing shoes for slippers and Loki came in. I rolled over on the bed and he moved beside me. I pulled him close and kissed and hugged him (because I want him to let me cut his claws someday and letting me hold him tight is a start) and when I let loose, he stayed for about five more minutes.

I'm doing laundry and set up the next set of pills for both Spirit (cut pills into four parts) and Junie (snap pills in half and put in pill pockets) which makes me tired, too. There's only one show I want to watch tonight, CSI, so maybe I'll just tape that.

In today's WashPost, Michael Dirda wrote an excellent and knowledgable review of Connie Willis' Blackout. It helps to have an SFF fan review books. Dirda used to be the head of the WashPost's Bookworld, but now that they don't have a Bookworld (just review through the week), he's just a regular reviewer.

Remember my post that contained directions to the company that was making the paste/powder that had salmonella? Well, they already knew that. You should read the description of the plant!

Ex-representative Eric Massa has readily admitted to so many things that I wonder if he's quite sane. The Republicans think that Democratic leaders already knew too much and called for an investigation. But Massa made even Glenn Beck nervous.

The wife and daughter of Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, were in a serious car accident this afternoon and while it wasn't life-threatening, they'll be in care a long time.

Happy late birthday--glad we didn't have to have someone read them to you in the hospital this year!

Eric Massa was our rep, and until this happened, a slightly quirkly, but stand-up guy. I went to see him at a town hall meeting on health care this summer and thought he did a great job. And I'm sad to see him have a rather public breakdown over having his indiscretions exposed. But I'm glad they got him out of there quickly, I'd rather not have him be the public face of why we need DADT. Which he would have been if he remained.

Yes, thanks! I'm glad, too!

Oh, yes, it was definitely good that he resigned. The ethics committee should probably continue since they did for a Republican who resigned, but as long as he's not in place anymore, it won't matter as much for the people he represented.

It's good that Loki is so agreeable. Hopefully, the claw trimming won't be far behind.

Yes, Loki will put his nose up to be kissed. He likes to sprawl out next to me in bed, too. I'd like to trim claws on all three of them to be even, but his claws are very long and sharp. I think maybe nobody's ever trimmed them.
