Taxes Reboxed

I reboxed my taxes last night. I bought 5 new boxes at the Container Store, labeled them by year, then stuck my tax records in there. During this, I found my records from '88-98. They filled a bin. Now, I need to shred them.

Manilow Tops Charts

In yet-another-sign that the record industry really has no clue, Barry Manilow has the top selling album on the Billboard charts. Who would have predicted that? It ain't rap. It ain't gangsta. I ain't angry. Go figure.

Gay Boyfriend

If you haven't seen this video, do so. Gay Boyfriend

What's more amazing is that the whole thing was done for $2000. Further proof that the music industry is imcompetent. When two women with ukeleles and flat intonation produce a toe-tapping song that you can't forget, and then get a music video for $2000 that is among the most memorable videos that I've seen in recent years, you must conclude that the insdustry has lost its way.

Cat Update

The kitty is behaving a bit better, but he has his moments.

We put aluminum foil on the table. The first thing he did was jump on the table. The second thing that he did was to lie down on it. *sigh* Jen covered her new chair in foil. He immidiately identified the one area that was now coverer in foil and claws at that part.

He loves killing tennis balls.

He can claw open door. He will work very hard at this.

When he meows in a certain way, I think he is trying to say "play", except that he can't make the 'L' sound.

I fear the spring when the windows open. The screens will NOT survive.

We now have bigger water sqirters. Heavier weapon. The arms race continues.

He loves playing in a random box with a hole in the bottom. We get to play "Beast from the Box". I dangle string behind the opening, an a paw grabs the hapless string, pulling it to its doom.

I need make him stop chewing a few cords. My plan is jalapenio peppers. Jen bought a few. The cat thought they were toys and kidnapped them. Either the cat got lucky and didn't get any oil on his tongue, or he likes jalapenos.

World of Six Gods

I finished my short writeup of The World of Six Gods. It worked out well enough. My big breakthrough was when I created the anti-deist sect. These rejectors of the divine are the cause of much that is ungodly in this world. It works out rather well. It makes explaining stuff easy!
