Years Twenty-Four and Days One Only

Jump to Comments

is how old I am now. Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, messages, calls, and emails. Even more thanks to those who spent it with me and made it such a happy day. (Said happiness lasted well into the early hours of the morning thanks to a certain software install disc that landed in my hands after dinner!)

Normal posting (and by that I mean sporadic posting where I try to forget that I’ve been ignoring this blog so I don’t feel so guilty) will resume shortly. After the last post, it took me all the way until two days ago before my MBP was in any shape to use, and I’m pleased to report that (no thanks to CASE – the utterly and wholly ineffectual Authorized Apple Service Provider in HK) she’s finally alive and well, and one of the things I was up last night doing was going through the backlog of photos that need to be slotted into these draft posts that are Ready and Waiting. (So hopefully the posting won’t be quite so sporadic.)

But in the meantime, I hope you like that picture of Toby. :) Two of my closest friends back home made me that shirt (in regular human size) and made this ridiculously cute tiny version, which we didn’t think about stuffing Rufus into until he was too fat. Toby’s just malleable enough to tolerate us, and looked quite fetching in it. Plus, if you ask me, his expression has a rather appropriate amount of blasé, I do think. In case you can’t quite make it out, the teeshirt reads, “There is no charge for AWSUMNESS” – a quote from the movie Kung Fu Panda. And yes, the spelling was intended. :D
