all the news I forgot to print

When I went in to feed tinyjo's cats on saturday I was greeted by a domestic disaster zone! Unusually it didn't involve small rodent carnage, but there was quite a lot of broken glass. As far as I could tell, Charlie cat had decided that the left hemisphere of my small brain would make the perfect cat toy, and had winkled it out of Cassandra-the-last-human's brain jar (a hefty beer glass) sending the whole kit and caboodle crashing to the floor. I checked her paws carefully for broken glass, but she had displayed extraordinary -- if selective -- dexterity, and only the bits she wanted (the hemisphere and the stem of the brain stand) had been taken away, batted around and abandoned in obscure corners of the living room. Oooh, that'll teach me to leave my fancy dress costumes lying around... I'd say poor little thing, but she looked quite pleased with herself.

I made pear and blackberry turnover and tested a Polaroid Pogo tonight. It's quite good once the swearing stops (the Pogo, not the turnover).

Oh, botheration! Sorry about that - I thought I had it nicely out of the way but I guess between them, Charlie and Roomba found a way. Perhaps they team up when I'm not there :)

I'd forgotten about Roomba! The story could be more complicated thann I tought.

P.S. Tell Cassie she's slacking (no rats! tsk!).

She is going through a lazy phase - lots of dozing on the sofa and cute snuggling up to me while I'm watching TV :)

Well, it's good to see that she's not neglecting her core duties ;)
