S&G 1

(no subject)

I went to KMart just now. I went to buy a fan and a thermometer. While there, I forgot to buy a thermometer but I bought a full-length mirror ($4.97!) and a bright orange rug to go in the bathroom. (I'm not sure I like it yet - I might have to post a picture so I can get a second opinion.)

When I got back, I stood the mirror up on the floor against the wall and went into the bathroom to throw the rug down, and suddenly I heard a low growl coming from the bedroom. I figured it was the black cat that sometimes comes to make Trout angry, but Trout had discovered a small grey cat on the floor up against the wall. She stood there for a minute or two with her hackles up and her ears back, making occasional annoyed sounds in the back of her throat. I ran and grabbed Cory and he ran and grabbed the camera and we took a couple of pictures of her being angry at her reflection.

And now the box fan is in the window and it's already a lot cooler in here, albeit rather loud. Can't really have the TV audible with this thing going on right next to me. It's OK though - I'd rather be cool than watch TV.

Tomorrow I go to my coworker's mother's funeral. Collapse )

OK, someone tell me what to get a 13 year old boy for his bar mitzvah. He likes sports, and that's about all I know. (Soccer and swimming.) I don't want to just get him money, I'd rather get him an actual gift.
