Since we haven’t talked about the animals in a while…

Smoky is doing much better.  It’s strange to see how much weight he has lost since he got really sick.  He seems so much happier now.  You can actually see some of his little bald patches filling in now, and his chicken legs are growing fur back on them too.  Right now he is lying at my feet as I use the Furminator on him – purring, twitching his tail slightly, and kneading with his front paws –  just as content as can be.

FOR SALE- TRS-80 Computer with all the peripherals and manuals

You know, I often give Geoff grief about never throwing anything away.  He likes to keep everything.

Sometimes this works in our favor and he ends up keeping something really, really cool.  Like this.

TRS 80 Model III
It's alive!!!

We have for sale one TRS 80 Model III computer.  It WORKS.  It has not one but TWO printers which also work.  Check it out.

It works and we have cartridges for it!

And finally, the giant pile of manuals and stuff.  We have SO much stuff.  Check it out.

Yep, those are floppies. No, we're not going to "upcycle" them.

We’re selling everything individually.  If you’re interested leave a comment here or send one of us an email and we’ll get right back to you.  We need to make room for more wedding crap in our apartment and we’d like to see this stuff go to a good home.



Smoky is doing well, an update

Smoky came home from the hospital on Monday.  He was SO ready to come home.  He was pressing his nose up against the bars on the carrier and purring and making it *very* clear that he was done at the hospital.  Surprisingly, he was a very good patient.  He’s a nice cat but he can be pretty high strung and he doesn’t handle change well so I wasn’t sure how he’d handle being there.  But, he was good.  Everyone was sad to see him go as he was, apparently, very affectionate.

Dear Wedding Websites;

I know that you think your email reminders are helpful.  A year ago, heck, even 8 months ago, they were.  But I am acutely aware that our wedding is a month from today.  Really, I am.  So, with all due respect, I DO NOT need a deluge of emails telling me that “You’re running out of time!”  “Is your to-do list up to date?”  “One Month To GO!!!”

Radioactive Cat gets to come home today!

I just got a call from Angell.  Smoky has fallen below the Federally mandated levels of radiation allowable after his I-131 treatment so we can go and get him.  Yay!  We have some errands to run and then we’re going to go and pick him up and bring him home.  He’s going to live in the guest room for the next 2 weeks.  That will drive the other animals BONKERS.  But that’s how it’s got to be.

I am so excited to have him back.  He should be a happier, healthier kitty.  Yay!
