Anything but Trader Joe's

I really love a lot of Trader Joe's stuff. But about an equal number of items just suck. Their tortillas, their sushi, their fresh spring rolls to name a few.

And now I guess we can add cat food. They have three flavors of canned cat food. Biggie and The Smalls will snarf up anything and everything except... Trader Joe's cat food. They will eat it. But, they clearly do not love it. Oh well. Now we know.

When they aren't napping or bugging me, they are totally getting into trouble. I hear stuff mysteriously falling off counters. I hear thuds. I hear whining. It's gotten so that I no longer hop up to see what's happened. I wait until I've had a few moments to remember what joy they bring before I go and see what carnage they've wrought. It works.

For my efforts, they will come put on a show for me. Like this one this morning. (Edit: removed video because I couldn't get it to work. No biggie. Just two cats wrestling and having a good time :) - it's on Flickr for anyone who really wants to see.)

I did a test of my quilt technique and it worked beautifully. But, I didn't start cutting. I don't have the exact batting to test with yet so I'm holding off. The batting should be here tomorrow and once I get it tested and see that it's going to work even better (which I think is going to be the case) then I'll start cutting. I'm quite jazzed about this project.

Tonight is the monthly home owners meeting. I think I'll go. I haven't been in a while and there's no baseball game. The meetings generally piss me off but I think I can just slap on my stone face and keep my mouth shut and it will be fine.

According to texts from my brother's wife, he came through the knee surgery fine. Probably won't be doing any Olympic genuflecting soon but, as long as he can ride his bike and walk down the street, he'll be happy.
