Halloween Cat

I Don't Rock No Cradle

There is a cat on my lap and somewhere, somehow, I have gotten a massive bruise on my arm, right where he normally likes to lay his front paws. It hurts, so I turned him around. I have no idea where I got this bruise - I noticed it this afternoon while washing my hands; I hadn't noticed it before (it's not badly discolored; you have to see it in bright light), but now I see it and, worse, FEEL it.

I got this Scattergories meme from nutmeg3:

Try to use different answers if the person in front of you had the same 1st initial. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question.

I just got the new Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers CD to review, and have that due with the new Ricky Skaggs/Bruce Hornsby disc. I guess I'd better get to work... Ho.

We have a new mattress! We paid cash, which is a wonderous new thing for us - especially for these big ticket items. So we have some lovely new furniture and still no debt. I like that feeling. I hope sincerely I can keep it up (although we do hope for a new mortgage here sooner than later, to do home improvements and replace the living room furniture - God, we'll be real grownups!).
