There's just too many things bringing me down right now. OK, that's not really the truth, what I mean to say is that there's a lot going on, and it's hard to get them all reconciled, and that's got me a little down.

Coming home to find that the cat that lives in my house has not only knocked over a shelf full of game books, campaign notes, and related items, but also knocked over the gargoyle box that holds my two favourite sets of dice and scattered them to the four winds, was just the rancid icing on a rotting cake. No, I've not managed to recover all of either set of dice. Yes, surprisingly, the cat is both alive and unharmed; I'm showing an impressive level of restraint.

I'm sore, I'm still not over this sickness, and it's been a very long day. Dianna's not home yet, there's no food in the house, and I've had half of one can of Coke Zero all day, so I have no energy. I know tomorrow is going to be a long day, and I'm not looking forward to it. All in all, it's not the sunniest of evenings.

Meh. Lucky cat.

Hope you're feeling better soon, I read that you've got the plague.

Sucks to hear you're still struggling with the not-being-sick bit . . . This is a bad time of year to get hit by anything like that . . .

I've got two cats, and they're USUALLY pretty good about staying out of my dice . . . But my minis are a completely different issue. Our smallest cut - a completely cute and adorable gray guy named Smoke - learned that if he perches himself on top of the bookshelf that houses the minis, he can reach down, hook them with his claws, and fling them to the floor. (It didn't take long for me to put something on top of the bookshelf to keep Smoke from attacking my pewter and pseudo-pewter army.)

I hope you feel better soon. Being sick, or not-sick can have a tremendous pull, in a downward fashion, on your attitude and emotions. With so much else going on, getting not-sick right now is of course going to send you crashing.

Speaking of crashing- your kitty is very lucky you didn't have the energy to be uber-wrathful. My last kitty BARELY survived the night she decided to knock not one, but both of my wedding goblets to the floor, crashing into pieces. And I seriously did try to kill her. She was just really good at hiding.

Now that is one brave cat - that or very stupid. It is at any rate one very lucky cat. Hugs.

I'm sending you the last good thought I've got. Hope it helps.

Well, if I know you, there'll be a helluva lot more good thoughts in your head, anyway. Besides, I'll always send one back. ;)

Hope things take a turn for the better soon, and that your cat has learned the error of its ways.
