Time flies by....

Wow, it's been a while since I've updated this thing. I suppose I should get off my lazy butt and post something. Sadly, there really isn't that much to post. The Fall semester started off with a mad rush and hasn't slowed down at all. I'm teaching two sections of an intermediate French literature and culture course. The nice thing about this class is that it's only open to Freshmen--ah, fresh minds to corrupt. Seriously, it's nice to teach students who want to take a French class, unlike the regular language courses that are filled up with students who only want to take the class to get the requirement out of the way. By the end of last Spring, I really wanted to bang my head against the wall.

What else is new? Hmmm....I quit my job at the pet store where I was working over the summer. I had wanted to stay there at minimal hours during the school year, but the bullshit quotient quickly became too high and I decided it was time to leave the drama behind me. For the record, I really hate picking up the slack and cleaning up other people's messes--not acceptable!

The thesis is going along. I'm making good progress on it and I'm happy with how it's going.

And just because I can, here are some pics of my babies:

Singe staring at the fish tank:

And Siam looking all photogenic:

One tired baby, although it does look like he's laughing hysterically:

And finally, a pic of the two boys together--I think Singe is flipping me off:

I can't get over how big Si is getting...and how fast! All the little guy does is eat and poop, eat and poop. He eats over twice as much as Singe, and the automatic litter box is working overtime.

Awwwwwwww, Si is getting so cute! And Singe, yeah he does look like he's giving you the bird...if not by paw...definitely by thought! LOL!
Let's catch up over the phone SOON! XOXOXOXO

Hey Lester!

Never pegged you as a cat person!

Hey Becca!

Well, I'd love another dog, but as long as I live here, it's really not fair to the beast. Besides, cats have a bitchier personality that mesh will with my own. LOL
