favorites and stuff…



where the hell did november go? oh yeah…vacation, thanksgiving, working like a dog! i cannot believe christmas/the holidays are right around the corner!


it was a very sad week for us, as our oldest cat, meatloaf, passed away. we had her for 10 years, longer than we’ve been married, even. she was really ill for about a month now, and she had to be put to sleep. i was sadder than sad about it all. our very sweet co-workers bought us a huge white orchid as a gift of condolence for her loss and had it delivered yesterday; it was very, very touching and unexpected. it’s amazing how a pet can affect our lives, and how much you can miss them when they are gone. RIP, meatloaf. we love you. we will miss you always.


itty bitty kitty committee is my new favorite animal related blog, next to cute overload and i can has cheezburger. that name is PERFECT, on so many levels.


looking forward to going to the alameda antiques fair this coming weekend. i’m yearning to get some cool lounge chairs for our apartment. cross your fingers that we find something cool! if you see me there, say hi!

    My deepest sympathies on the loss of Meatloaf. They do become a part of your family, and it is so hard to lose them. You do have some amazing co-workers though, which always helps a bit.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. No one can understand what they mean to us, they’re like our best friend. You’ll always have her in your memories.

    Losing a kitty (or any pet) is awful, and I’m so sorry for your loss. I love her name–was it her shape, color, or personality that reminded you of a meatloaf?

    I’m sorry for the lose of your beloved Meatloaf. We are very lucky to have the opportunity to have special pets in our lives. I hope you have wonderful memories to hold on to.

    I am so sorry for your loss. She sounds like a lucky lady to have had you as a guardian though – it sounds like she was very well-loved.
