Oh, Wow, It's Been Over a Month!

I'm still here! The lovely Frog just reminded me that it's been quite some time since I popped in (sorry, frog! It was really sweet of you to come over and poke me, though -- sometimes I wonder if anyone has had the patience to stick around). I've been costuming a show and flying across country to meet The Man's family. Thanks Giving in Los Angeles was beautiful, and watching the denizens of that fair city bundle up in puffy jackets when the temp hit the 60s was priceless. Waking up to -10 degree windchills the morning after we got home? Not so priceless.

Getting this show built is going to run right down to the wire, and is keeping me hopping. The colors and fabrics are gorgeous, and the designs we keep coming up with just get better as we make the transition from 2 to 3 dimensions. Details are here if you'd like to see the final product.

We continue to settle into the house. The Saga of The TV is over, so we now have functional satellite TV (seriously? Don't ask). The cats are still crazy. Tom went to stay with my mother while we were in L.A., and has been whining ever since he came back -- she spoils him like a grandchild. He has finally compromised on the yowling part of the morning, and only starts screeching at us after the alarm goes off. This is an improvement over the 3:30 am wakeup call we got one day last week. The other cat, Fish, is not quite so neurotic. Though she doesn't quite "get" claws, and sometimes makes a velcro sound when walking on carpet. Retract, Fish! Retract!

We're seeing our second plowable snowfall in a week today, and I was lucky enough to get a ride home from my very cool boss. I could have walked it, but with feet that hurt if I'm not in sneakers and sneakers that are far from waterproof the ride was much appreciated.

So. I've covered cats, the weather, my current big timesuck, and my latest wanderings. I'll try not to disappear on you again!
