I made sourdough today. It’s the very best fresh out of the oven, crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside. OM NOM NOM NOM!

It’s been interesting watching the remaining kitties adjust to the lack of Siobhan. She was definitely our alpha female who ran the place. ‘Spew is stepping up in her absence & claiming most of the lap space, and TimTheCat seems to be just the tiniest bit less feraldude, occasionally.

I think I’m within $200-$300 of getting my classical guitar. I can hardly wait. I’m entertained by the half-size, but it’s… it’s driving me crazy. The strings & frets are tiny & close together, which is fine to some degree because my hands are pretty tiny & some of the four, five, & six fret stretches & jumps are really hard, but it also means that I don’t have free right hand movement & I frequently bump other strings or accidentally mute them. In addition, that half-sizeness of it means the strings bend a lot more easily & are more sensitive to inexact placement, which is ok, usually. What’s not ok is that above about the third fret, the fret placement is not quite correct & so it takes some bending or prayer hoping that the string will not be flat or sharp due to bad frets or accidental bending. I guess it builds character — because y’all know I need more of that.

I have a strong temptation to have a third piece of bread, but it is, after all, well after 11 so I’m going to try to be strong. Save at least one piece for my lunch tomorrow to go with ‘s tasty sooooup.

I’m tired of having the house for sale. Someone needs to buy it in the Very Near Future. I want my books back. I want… uh… my other stuff that’s been so long since I’ve seen it I’ve forgotten what it all is back. So, people, I need your help. Can y’all visualize a big ass SOLD FOR A WHOLE LOT MORE MONEY THAN ANYONE WAS EXPECTING REALLY REALLY SOON sign on this for sale sign?
