April 1st, 2005



This morning as I drove around the 287 onramp loop, I saw all the prarie dogs standing up on top of their mounds being vigilant. Kawaii! I would have taken a picture, but what with the driving and all, I figured it was better instead to not lose control and go tumbling off the road to fiery doom.

So in honor of the prarie dogs and today being the first day of April, I give you:

Some of My Favorite Collective Names for Various Critters

We have:
a coterie of prarie dogs
a shrewdness of apes
a tower of giraffes
a bask of crocodiles
a smack of jellyfish
an ambush of tigers

and, apparently, bears come in triads these days...
Who knew?

Happy Cat-Out-of-the-Bag Day!

Sooo... just in case anyone was still unclear on the matter after Jerry's post:

kung_fu_monkey and I have a boyfriend! The three of us (me, him, and saintpookie) are, as the kids say, "an item".

It wasn't really planned, it's one of those things that just kinda happened. Greg just sort of... fits. So we're giving a three-person relationship a try.

Hmm. I guess this means I'm polyamorous. (You may feel free to make witty comments about latent mormonism.)

Anyway, this is good. Very, very good. He has moved in with us, and we are happy, and we hope everyone else will get to know him and like him as much as we do.

...Well, okay, maybe not quite as much. Then I might have to fight you.

P.S.: yay!
