Getting back to writing papers with the help of a bathtub full of caffeine...




If Sumanth had been with me when I took these pictures using the camera on my lap-top he would probably have been worried about the possibility of coffee leaking onto the keyboard. This is one of the reasons that I think we're a good match--while I was taking the bottom picture, and leaning the mug in order to get the best shot--I heard his voice in my head which was what stopped me from getting an even better shot by leaning my mug even further towards the camera risking the life of my sweet little macbook for pics of my sweet little latte!

While I was trying to get back into the writing papers mode, I couldn't help but overhear two people at the nearby table who were interviewing eachother to be roommates. The one girl said, "Well, when Lewis (whom I later found out is a cat) gets angry, he tends to go a little wild with his peeing. Yesterday he peed in my laundry basket. Lewis always finds the laundry when he's angry!" The other poor soul said, "Oh, I don't mind that kind of thing," leaving me to wonder what king of thing she does mind if not cat pee in laundry, and to be so so grateful not to be on a roommate search.

I can honestly say that cat pee in the laundry would only be an issue once, maybe twice, then the issue would be where to donate all the cat stuff. Funny to hear a conversation like that and assume Lewis was an adult human. We (me and the kids) have gotten into the orional Incredible Hulk shows on DVD. I can see this cat saying, "Don't make me angry, you and the laundry would not like me when I am angry!"

The new orange you have for your blog is the same orange we have painted our bedroom. It was called Cumin. Looks very cool with wood floor and bright celings.

these pictures help me remember the look of peaceful happyness on your face as the rest of us guzzled gelato and you walked over with your bowl-mug of latte on a boston evening.

Chuck would SO cringe if I put a bathtub full of coffee that close to my laptop!!!

Our cat Tater peed on Aurora's tummy-time mat. Talk about sending a message. I cleaned it and I'm fine with it now, which kind of grosses Chuck out. Maybe I wouldn't mind Lewis.
