"Happiness is like a cat - If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing against your legs and jumping into your lap. So forget pursuing happiness. Pin your hopes on work, on family, on learning, on knowing, on loving. Forget pursuing happiness, pursue other things, and with luck happiness will come."
- William Bennett
Speaking of cats, Krissy and I have submitted our kitties to ratemykitten.com. If you want to view them and click each picture and give them a nice high number I would appreciate it =)!! If you have any feline friends at home, submitting your cat photos is alot of fun! I can get lost for a long time on this site. It is so happy! A companion dog site is linked to it as well for all the dog lovers out there!
Baby has been driving me CRAZY the past three days with this rubber fish. He has been making me play fetch with it from sun up until bedtime. Hours upon hours of tossing this rubber fish. If I don't play he whines. My cat whines. The only way to make him stop whining is to toss this stupid, rubber fish. The thing is, he doesn't drop it right at my feet like a dog would while playing fetch. He brings it about half-way back into the room. So I am getting my exercise. I tried hiding the fish, but he found a nice piece of rope to play fetch with instead and that is even harder to toss, so I brought the rubber fish back out. Silly cat. Baby and Honey are finally starting to play with each other, too. Finally after a year and a half they tolerate each other to a degree and even romp with each other at night. They don't play during the day, but I hear them while I am in bed and see evidence of their play in the morning. It is about time. Oh my goodness, Baby just got onto my computer table and is into my yogurt. Anyone want a cat?

Senator Franken did the right thing - I don't feel happy about writing this. I don't have a song in my heart and I don't want to include another photo of Al Franken looking downcast as he exit...
