Schoolwork, CD’s, and a Polywoly Doodle Dactyl

I am currently working on an assignment right now, but I decided I wanted to write a blog post. Because I am also currently ripping my CD’s to my new laptop, because I had ripped only a few when I first got this new laptop, and I was wanting some more music to listen to other than Billy Joel, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Asia & Boston, Bad Company, and Jimmy Buffett. And while I was ripping these CDs, I was thinking that it would be nice if they made CD cases to be more durable, so that the CD doesn’t just fall out when you open the case, and so that the front part doesn’t come detached from the back, and then I thought that if I didn’t, you know, leave the cases in the floor and step on them, or leave it on top of the toaster oven and then forget about it and proceed to bake a pork chop and in the process melt the case, that they wouldn’t be as falling apart.

A little more than a month ago, we acquired a new feline in the household. He’s a 22 toed gray tabby.

In the background of this picture you can see his squid, or calamari, that he really likes to play with. He’s a total cuteheart (a combination of being cute and being a sweetheart), but he’s run the calico into the confines of the basement. I think our cats are like rock paper scissors (does anyone else have extreme difficulty spelling that word?), in that the calico is rock (because she’s so fat) and the polydactyl is paper (because he’s light, and the calico’s afraid of him) and the puff is that-school-supply-thing-that-is-hard-to-spell-that-you-cut-stuff-with (because she frightens the polydactyl, but is scared of the calico).

I finished knitting the Orchid Thief Shawl, using some pink Malabrigo sock that I got in Asheville when we went last spring.

I still need to weave in the ends and block it. It’s quite pretty isn’t it?

I believe I have spent enough time avoiding my homework, so I will let you go and get back to work.
