Emily and I watch very little tv (esp since we don’t have cable) but one show we typically watch is Heroes on nbc. I am typically even less likely to recommend a program than I am to watch one, but if you are prone to sci-fi, check out Heroes. Anyhow, one of the characters on … Continue reading Mohinder
So just about a year ago, we found a little orange kitten on our doorstep. We nursed it for weeks (my nipples are still sore), we helped it poop and it grew up to be an enthusiastic orange cat. Somewhere around the same time we got a stray dog named Ginny from the pound. She … Continue reading We are so stupid…or…how my wife became the crazy cat woman
We finally managed to get to the farmers’ market yesterday to buy some pumpkins to carve for Halloween. It’s a tradition afterall, where brothers and sisters gather around the dining room table and fight with each other and their parents while wielding sharp knives. It’s a tradition that goes way back, before the crusades in … Continue reading Pumpkin fun
At my age, you would think I wouldn’t be messing around with new things…you know, experimenting and all. But I had such a cold for the last few weeks that I needed to do something drastic. A few folks I know suggested pot but I had no idea where to buy it. Wait, did I … Continue reading I tried pot
We have had our old cat Madeline for 13 years and she has only ever had a few problems. If we don’t feed her the right food (which we can only get at the vet’s office) she gets urinary tract infections within 2 weeks. So, it’s not a huge additional expense to buy special food … Continue reading It’s zoonotic!

Madeline has become patient with our sleeping/feeding schedule but Mo is terribly persistent about eating whenever he is hungry. Typically, he will jump … Continue reading DIY Automatic Cat Feeder
A few months ago, we got a new cat Mohinder. Our other cat Madeline is pretty well trained to stay off of tables and counters. It could be that she’s old and too bitter to jump, but I prefer to think of it as her getting a proper upbringing in a loving home. Anyhow, Mohinder … Continue reading I had to spit on him
I have mentioned before that I love Instructables.com. I was browsing the other evening when I came across a post about cutting intricate paper snowflakes (holy moley, sorry for all the links!) I don’t think I was ever particularly good at cutting paper snowflakes but I thought I should pass along the frustration of cutting them … Continue reading Snowflakes!
I was reading the Y-2K Hippie blog last week and saw they had posted a recipe for fortune cookies. I love Chinese food but am usually not brave enough to eat it at a Chinese restaurant. That leaves us with typically not eating Chinese…but the homemade fortune cookies seemed like a really cool idea so we … Continue reading Chinese – making our fortune…cookies
