Random interesting things that have happened in the past few days:

- Laurel's best friend from kindergarten and first grade has moved back to the area and lives in an apartment complex across the street. We had a last-minute play date on Friday afternoon. Kept her until 9 PM with her mother's blessing. Since the VogonDad came by that evening, she joined us for dinner, which leads to the next point...

- Los Lupes has a new Addison location in the former Joe's Crab Shack on Belt Line. They have mariachi night on Fridays; if you go, take earplugs.

- We got Squeaky a soft-sided carrier that's machine washable. The latter attribute was used almost immediately, as he christened it as soon as the car started moving to head home from PetsMart. He was fine riding loose in the car there and happily rode around in the cart, where he enjoyed eyeing little dogs in other carts and watching the birds.

- A second grader 'sang' the Star Wars Imperial March to me in meows yesterday while I was sitting in the school lobby filling out after-school program paperwork. He was waiting for his mom, who picked him up late following car trouble. Kid's probably a smart cookie, he has the same second-grade teacher as Laurel had.

- saarlander got the luv & bass (a bunch of DJ Rap singles, the reissue of A Propa History, podcasts and her free mailing list tracks from this year) I mailed to Iraq and left me the sweetest voicemail message. I think he says "thank you" in it four times in barely 30 seconds. I would be totally envious of his wife if he wasn't my best friend.

Only coming from an angelic-faced little kid. I was dead from cuteness!

Are you saying I'm not cute?!

*mock offense* Never! I was merely saying that you are not a seven-year-old, at least to the best of my knowledge. (If you are, you hide it excellently in writing and photos.)

Well you know, everyone needs a hobby!

How funny that Squeaky was riding around in the cart at PetsSmart! I've seen people bring dogs there before, but never see people bring their cats there! Too cute!

Glad Laurel's friend is back! That's nice for her!

We were in Addison over the weekend for WorldFest. We had lots of fun!

He is a very mellow cat temperament-wise... and he was wearing a harness and leash. We only put it on for going out, but he'll walk with it on like it's natural to him. Once he's in the house we wants it off yesterday.

Laurel is thrilled because now both of her closest friends live nearby. (Her best friend from second grade lives by our neighborhood park maybe a half mile away.)

We need to get together sometime you're up in Addison. We're just the other side of Addison Airport from the park where all the festivals are held.

Singing in meows is what we do here. Oh my goodness, the kid might be our son!!!


Ok, just kidding. But still, that's funny.
