I did something very exciting last night- I bought a nonrefundable one-way airplane ticket to New York. How’s that for grandeur?

I leave PDX at midnight on Thursday the 28th, and arrive at JFK at 8:05 am local time Friday. Now I have to hope that my cat carrier will not only accomodate my fat feline friend, but will perform the simaltaneous feat of fitting underneath an airplane seat.

I’ve been playing dirty tricks on her by putting her food dish inside the carrier, so that she has to enter the dark cave of oppression in order to eat. I’m so sneaky..

At this moment I am frittering time away at the local coffee shop, when I ought to be out running errands, or in the house packing boxes. Lazy, lazy.

I have to find a pair of wheelie tennis shoes for a full-grown woman, size 10 1/2, sometime within the next six hours. I’ll let you know how that goes.

But at this moment I would like to take this oppourtunity to wish the best of luck to all of my compadres taking final exams this week. Hooray for finishing the term! And were I in a mood for pointless remonstrating, I might say this- “More thinky, less drinky!”.

But I’m not, so I won’t.

I really should be running errands now..
