The Best Recessional Music Ever

The bibliophile and I went to a college friend's wedding this afternoon. It was a very pretty wedding, but when the recessional started, I nearly got the church giggles. The bride and groom--both devoted sci fi fans--had chosen "The Throne Room" from the Star Wars score. It was brilliant.

Cutest Rule-Breaker Ever

Mr. Kitters doesn't have very many rules to abide by in the apartment, but we're strict about not letting him walk around on the stove (for safety) or the countertops (because paws that walk in the litterbox + food preparation surfaces = YUM). After the Thanksmas Eve party, nearly every dish we own was dirty, so I used the counters on either side of the sinks to lay out the plates to dry after washing them. I put the plates away yesterday, but left the towels they'd dried on in a pile to one side. Mr. Kitters decided this would be a good, cushy spot to take a nap:

He was so cute and rumpled and I'm such a pushover that I didn't even scold him. No wonder he knows he's in charge.

Just Finished: book 8 of Y: the Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan & Pia Guerra. I'm bummed, because it's probably going to be months until the next collected set of these comes out, and I'm dying to know what happens next.

    Your cat is absolutely and utterly beautiful!! I'm a pushover for wonderful cats too. Ours sleeps in the baby's crib, while the baby in turn pushes us out of our bed at nights. Cat and baby wake up feeling great and we hobble around like Quasimodo all day. The pain.

  2. Until the Rock Star and I settled on an Irish jig for our recessional, it was totally going to be the theme from "Jurassic Park". John Williams writes some pretty sweet tunes!

  3. I'm picturing the church, with the Jurassic Park theme punctuated with the T-Rex roar at the end, and in my mind, it is AWESOME.
