Last weekend, the "girls" had a b-day party for me since I am going to be away in The Holy City on the actual Day of 50 Doom.
They performed a funny birthday song for me. To the tune of Hungry Heart. It had 20 verses. I didn't think there was that much to say about me. Blackie the Cat had two verses just about him. And the CPNs got a verse too. (Almost ruined the song, but not quite.)
And then they presented me with house-cleaning-themed gifts, the main one being a pile of $$$ which I am to use to buy a.....ROOMBA! I'm so excited. The lazy woman's vacuum-cleaning dream will soon be mine. And I look forward to watching my feline friends ride around. Maybe they will even end up in YouTube videos, riding the ROOMBA, like so many other cats. (Just search: "cat roomba" for all endless fun.)
