Mouse in the House
Cone Day! Yogurt cones are only $2.08 when you ask for the special (regularly $2.77).
Things that you don't expect to wake up to at 6:50 in the morning: "Buddy [the cat] caught a mouse...And, he's eating it."
After going to bed later than normal, it was not exactly how I wanted to awake. But, it was not lacking an element of humor. It seems that the cat, which I often, freely and accurately, refer to as dopey and lazy, has a little real cat in him after all. We started to notice him acting weirder than normal about a week and a half ago in the kitchen. He was guarding the door periodically and darting his eyes back and forth to the area underneath the stove and dishwasher.
To be completely honest, we both thought it was just the cat being weird. Have I mentioned that he's not the brightest? At no point and time did we actually hear any noise coming from the kitchen, so we figured that it might just be a little lizard since those occasionally sneak in to the apartment. We were both surprised to find out that it was something else completely.
Buddy, proud of his successful hunt, stood over his prize like a regal but wild cat. It was unexpected enough that he caught this little field mouse; however, it was even more unexpected to find out that the cat that refuses to eat canned tuna and canned chicken, opting instead only for the water within the can, knew to start eating the animal after the kill. So, at about 6:55 AM this morning, after recovering from the shock that our cat had some cat in him, I cleaned up the decapitated mouse from our foyer and disposed of it. At 7:05 AM, I went back to bed.
Now that the conventions are over, I thought that I would do a little non-scientific polling for the election. You've had a chance to look at both the candidates, so now we'll let Blog Things tell you who to vote for in 2008.

Truth be told, you're not really satisfied with either of the candidates.
You could vote for either of them. You are the typical coveted swing voter.
You may want to narrow yourself down to a particular set of issues in order to pick your president. Or, start looking at third party candidates. One of them might suit you better.
