Cricket fan

Someone knows what my real passion in life is, and no, it's not cuddly teddy bears...

Grammy awards

I don't think I've ever watched the Grammy Award ceremony before, or if I have, it was about ten years ago. Tonight, after a day of being very active but getting nothing done, I turned on the TV and switched to CBS (more out of habit than anything else) and found myself in the middle of a country & western song.

It'll probably be another decade or so before I watch the Grammys again, I need this memory to fade first.

In your face

One minute she's as cute as can be, the next minute she's in your face demanding some attention - and she really doesn't look happy this time.

That's OK, I can take the unhappy look and raise it, both girls are off to the vet very soon for their 6-month checkup. That ungodly look I got from Bubbles won't compare to the reception I get when I have to herd them into the cat-carrier. Hopefully the next time will be blood-free. When I last managed to take them to the vet he was worried after the examination because there was blood on his table. He felt a lot better after I told him the blood used to belong to me.

Little peace at home

Not only does working both day and night shifts at altitude confuse me and my body, it confuses the hell out of the girls. They're used to me being away for periods of time but not every week and now that I'm probably home for a relatively long period, they've realised what's going on and won't leave me alone. Wherever I go around the house or yard they're there and often use me as ambush practice!

Eddie is still camera shy but once I was sat at the computer she made herself comfortable next to me and fell asleep, although she still had one eye open just to check where I was and what I was up to.

Unfortunately for Eddie, Bubbles saw what was going on and had to join in.

Bubbles always sits next to me when I'm working at the computer, Eddie saw the one opportunity when Bubbles was preoccupied with something else (probably vomiting on the carpet downstairs, she's done that a few times recently) and then took her usual spot. Eddie was about to get pissed off.

An impressive Kung Fu kick to Bubbles' head and Eddie was off - she's asleep in my bedroom now . Next week there's a new challenge - they will have to deal with a visitor - they'll be OK with that though, they know her as "the treat lady" and perhaps they'll leave me alone for a while!
