I don't know how much more of this I can take

Sometime last summer, I went to a show of Amber's paintings and one of my favorites was a great painting of a weenie dog. Several people commented that she should do pet portraits for fun and profit. Well, somehow I asked her if we could do a trade and I got the idea to have her do a portrait of Chocolate. I had taken some shots and sent them to her but then promptly forgot about it.

I saw her yesterday and she mentioned that she was trying to paint but that she had a block and didn't know what to paint. So I suggested that she paint Chocolate. I took some more shots last night and sent them to her. It's hard to take pictures of a cat, by the way.

Sam and I went over to Jenna's last night for pizza and to visit the kitties. We're going to play with and feed Shadow and Casper while Jenna's out of town next week. Sam had a blast playing with little Casper. He tried to play with Shadow but she wasn't really having any of it. She seemed to prefer sitting around and being fat. I prefer that, too, now that I think about it.

So Sam's really excited about being able to play with Casper every day for a few days. had a link to this site for Improv Everywhere, a guerrilla improv group based in New York City. The Aspen, Best Buy, Cell Phone Symphony, and No Pants "missions" are quite hilarious.

Shadow consolved herself from the sting of your insult by consuming an entire can of kitten food.
