Cats in a Box

(not to be confused with Snakes on a Plane)

I’m heading to Texas tomorrow morning. But first, let’s get a few photos out of the way.

What is it with cats and boxes? I guess it makes them feel safe, but how safe is he if he’s sticking out the top?

AEJ and I had dinner last night with Sarah, who had flown here from Houston for a conference. We had a nice time, and dinner was tasty, but the waitress was kind of bitchy. We’ve had semi-rude service at Malo before, but in the past, the rudeness has come with competence. The server may not smile, and may question your choice of tequila in your margarita, but she did it because, damn it, she cared. The server last night, though, was cold and not even very good at her job. Still, we enjoyed the ground beef and pickle tacos. (I know they sound weird, but they’re delicious.) After dinner, we came back to our place, and a neighbor cat came to the window to visit Loki.

Loki was all, “hey, let’s be friends!” and the neighbor cat was like, “screw you,” and that was the end of their chat.

Although the neighbor cat was mean, Loki and Sarah got along splendidly. I’ve never seen Loki’s eyes light up the way they did when he saw Sarah.

(That photo is completely unedited. Loki’s eyes and flash photography don’t really get along.)

On another note, AEJ made me a great Easter basket this year, and it was waiting for me when I got home from Florida a few weeks ago. She had made little cut-out figures of her in a bunny costume, and Loki in a monogramed Easter sweater and bunny ears. The Loki Easter cutout now lives on my keyboard because it rules. Doesn’t it totally look like a South Park character?!

So, I’m off to Commerce, Texas, tomorrow morning. I’ll try to remember my camera cable so I can possibly post a blog entry from the road, but there may not be a real update until I get home on Wednesday. Until I get back, Loki will keep himself safe in this box.

Hey JM -- how long are you going to be in TX? And where is Commerce? I'm going to be in the Dallas/Fort Worth area from Wednesday night until Sunday morning... it'd be wild if we could hang out in the Lone Star state!

Dang, that's a cute cat. Almost as cute as mine!

Hope Commerce treated you well....
