Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Your web log gets me into a lot of trouble at work because I find myself laughing out loud at your narration of the feline follies, which is NOT at all proper in the O-SO-SERIOUS bancroft library.

I think Mark Twain would be okay with it.

Today In Cats: they meow at me all the damn time. Little Kitty is especially jealous of the bike. I can't hardly spend two minutes trying to mount a reflector on there without Little Kitty prowling among the screws. Perhaps she's perturbed that I concentrate so zealously on some project that isn't her, although I doubt it since she doesn't do that when I read.

It only now occurs to me that she acts as a stereotypical flirty female might with a male mechanic, hanging around the garage and coyly preening to get attention. But she's been spayed, so that can't be it.
