Hello Kitty

Well, I've decided to post again after much public pressure. Okay. In reality, there were two people who asked me about the blog. But, really, two people is nothing to sneeze at. And it's not the size of the wand, anyways, it's the magic it can perform. Well, now I think I'm onto another subject entirely.

So it's been a month since I've blogged. The leaves are turning color, a testament to the fact that the seasons are changing once again. Things for me remain much the same, with few differences. First off, we are, again, in the process of getting a new coffee pot at work. The old one sprung a leak. So this is interesting and exciting. I'm not a big coffee drinker, but still, it's hard not to get caught up in the fervor of it.

On the home front, my dad came to visit me this week. It was nice to have company. I prepared a nice pot roast which was well recieved, though I still don't undertand why they call it pot roast. Where's the pot?? What does the pot have to do with anything?? It's perplexing, but I try not to spend too much time thinking about it. Some things we simply must accept for what they are.I think I shall have to add that little peice to my stand up act. "What's the deal with pot roast? It's a roast, but it's not a pot." Jerry Seinfeld eat your heart out. At any rate, for those of you who have not heard my stand up routine, just trust me when I say it's quite stellar. I would post it on here, but it just wouldn't do it justice because in comedy, delivery is everything. From the reviews that I have gotten so far, my delivery is spot on. It basically makes the routine. So. I can't post it on here. Perhaps sometime, for those of you lucky ones, you will get to hear it. As for my other career, I continue to soldier on with the book that I am writing. I am almost finished it now and am pleased with the progress. I submitted a query letter to a literary agent, and am hoping to hear something one way or the other soon. If I can get an agent, there is some chance that I could get it published. Without an agent, I will surely perish as a writer and be forced to live off of wieners and beans. Pot roast will be a thing of the past for me, such as it is.

As for the whole baby issue, things are still very much up in the air right now. The bad news is that Geoff states that he does not wish to have any more children. The good news is that it seems to me that he hasn't quite figured out where babies come from as he is not particularly insistent on using any form of birth control. As such, I continue to take my folic acid every day. I find this time of year a bit tricky, as I am approaching yet another due date. My due date from the pregnancy I lost in April was November 29th. I find it hard to believe that I would already be close to term and perhaps starting my mat. leave soon. I see people who are very pregant and think to myself "I would look like that now, too." But. Instead I am getting a kitten. Kittens are cute, though. So. I guess that should be good.

The kitten will be here tomorrow at 10 sharp. Her name is Zoey Brooks Makepeace and we got her for free out of the paper. She looks fairly cute and the children much anticipate her arrival. I can only hope that the cat experiment goes better than the dog experiment, which went terribly awry (see: Goodbye my Friend for more details.) Will post a picture of the Zoeymiester tomorrow. Have a nice night.
