Another Saturday Night

And, I ain't got nobody. I got some money, 'cuz I just got paid.
Now I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way

Well, not awful, but get this: I just spent 15 minutes blow-drying my cat. I have said it before, and I'll say it again -- I AM the woman I used to make fun of. Knitting and sewing all the time, and now spending a Saturday night blow-drying my cat.

In truth, it was not my plan to blow-dry my cat, but here's what happened:

1) I bought her a bunch of toys, because she's only 6 months old and still likes to play with things. I was trying to get her NOT to play with my dog's tail, because he don't like it.

2) She refused the toys, but loved a ball of aluminum foil.

3) I balled up mucho foilo and let her have at it.

4) She took a liking to a particular ball, and batted it around the living room, and then down the hall towards the bathroom.

5) I have been SUPER cleaning the house today and went into the bathroom put stuff that belonged there (nail file, nail polish, lotion) back in the bathroom from the coffee table.

6) While in the bathroom, I see Izzy swat the foil onto the back of the toilet seat.

7) I assumed she would say to herself, "Oh, well, I'll go get another foil ball"

8) I was wrong

9) Izzy jumped up on the toilet seat

10) Izzy fell in

So, you can see it's not my fault that I'm doing a loser activity on Saturday night. That's how I see it, at least. I'm pretty sure I could be out, shaking my grove thing, and meeting my true love tonight. No matter that I've not been asked. I'm sure there are 3 or 4 men who see me every day in my finery on the bus to work who pine away for me in stoic silence, afraid to make their move because I'm just that great. Right? Right? Ugh. Whatever. I gotta' go, because to make my Saturday night complete, I'm going to the 24-hour laundromat, so I have something to wear tomorrow ... when I walk my dog. Gak.

Ok, that sucks and all - but in order for it to be part of this divine comedy (read as LIFE) we need pictures! Please? I am as bad as that funny home video guy, there is just something I find funny about a wet and pissed off cat...

alexandra! Please know that I try every day to secret the digital camera away from my office! I almost bought a Hello Kitty digicam last week, but was thankfully talked out of it -- it was cute, but only midly functional. I've asked for one for Christmas, so pretty soon, the site will be chock full of Izzy and Lou in both wet and dry formats!
