it is raining RIGHT NOW in sept, in the desert. i've left the front door open & the pervy cat leaps in and out in the hope that the outdoors will be free of water if she travels quickly.

husband & i made this lovely but strange honeyed onion-mush chicken. on another feed-me note: after much coaxing on his part, i've agreed to try the ethiopian restaurant for our date night.

ignorant sod that i am, i think of generally sad and terrible things when anything directly connected to africa is mentioned. you know, like in books, movies, & news.

i'll be glad when i finish this damn book so i needn't be gulled into losing hours upon hours of sleep. despite voluntary sleep deprivation, this hasn't been a wretched week. pleasant, actually.
