Dancing Thru

Cat update

Circe has apparently been hiding in a new place, in the corner of the dining room, under a low table, hidden by a box of junk mail. I've noticed her ghosting in and out of there, yesterday and this morning. I'm pretending not to notice. She was up on top of the TV cabinet, last night, though she hid when I came in, and also sat in the kitchen door and watched me for a couple minutes, so I'm a little more encouraged.

I bought a couple more cans of Science Diet hairball control formula today, and also a big bag of ridiculously expensive Royal Canine "Intense Hairball" dry chow, with the picture of a Birman cat on the front. Yup, that's her. And it seems to have helped in the past. If the size and amount of hairballs Dan has reported is any indication, she really, really needs this. It's too bad that she intensely hates the hairball gel. Ming loves the stuff, but she won't go near it, then gets upset and offended if you try to smear it on her, and won't speak to you for days. Which is probably one of the reasons why she's hiding, currently.

Insanity time

I just had my schedule for the next couple weeks fully sink in. I've got a big release going out at work, and am seriously overcommited in every other area of my life. Life until December 15 (the Saturday after the Friday of doom) is going to be nutso. Talked to Andrew last night, and he's paralleling me (we even have a couple overlaps on our overcommits), because he's finishing his last quarter at UCSC, and finals are bearing down, he's overcommited too, etc. Guess what the cut-off date is for him? Yep, it's nutso until the 15th. (Of course, that weekend will be interesting in itself, in that Andrew's sister is going to be staying at my place while she does the Landmark Advanced Course, looking forward to talking food/cooking with me. I'm looking forward to that.) The weekend will be a reward for surviving the next couple weeks...

But until then...gaahhh.
