WOW that's a long elastic

A jubilant mother is not an uncommon sight in our household. Here she is in her spacious loft studio, excited at my record blogging streak of TWO WHOLE DAYS!

I wanted to write about something interesting, but I've forgotten what it was, so I'll just mention that last night I dreamt about tricking my captors into swimming in an oatmeal ocean as I escaped into a conveniently located forest.

Brilliant, I know.

I wish I was one of those just intrinsically fascinating people; you know, the kind that let it slip that they are Christian scholars of the Yiddish Theater, or experts on the taxonomy of the Falkland Islands.

I think I'll try to learn Yiddish. It would be nice if my brain was hard-wired to understand space-time continuoms, metaphysics, or suitcase packing, but I'll just have to accept my mediocre understanding of such things and focus my energy on....twig dissections.

But your cat is Monet. That should at least be good for something. I mean, you can have this conversation:

RANDOM PERSON: Do you have any pets?

KS: Yes. I have a cat named Monet.

RP: What kind of cat?

KS: No, I mean that the artist Claude Monet has been living in our house for the past eight years under the impression that he is a feline. I think he had some sort of head injury. That's why people thought he was dead. He actually just had amnesia and disappeared for a while, before reappearing in my kitchen requesting kitty snacks and towel baths.

RP: Oh ...
