Who is there to climb the tree and peek out at you from amongst the ornaments?
Who sits innocently at your feet whilst you explain to the neighbor why only the top 1/3 of your tree is decorated?
Who watches in dismay whilst you lash the tree to the banister with nylon climbers rope?
Who bats at the end of your pen as you address Christmas cards making them look as if you contracted a nervous condition?
Who drapes themselves over address books, lists, etc.. and places you in the uncivilized position of peeling stamps off the cats butt?
Who lays themselves on virgin wrapping paper refusing to budge even as you begin wrapping THEM to see how far they'll let you get before they MOVE!!?
Who quietly unties the beautiful ribbon you found on sale because ... well... that's why you put it there right?? I mean, why else would you have ribbon?
Who sits quietly in your lap on Christmas Eve watching "A Christmas Carol" with you until you get up to potty and return to find his head wedged in your glass of milk?
Who, on Christmas morning, romps and frolics amongst the discarded paper, boxes, ribbons and bows, spreading them over an area roughly the size of Rhode Island?
Who can add to the joy of the season in that unmistakable feline fashion?
How boring is a catless Christmas!
I'm writing a database conversion program for a friend. MS Access to mysql. The Access DB has a field labeled "Deceased".
Well, I accidentally flagged everyone as "deceased" in the new database.
As a friend on IRC said: "Good thing this isn't the Matrix." :p
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
I won't be sappy, but I do feel blessed for all of the people who I've met over this past year (both in spirit and in person), the return of old friends and being able to repair some family issues that have been going on for a while.
I hope everyone has a lovely day tomorrow. :kiss2:

Your soul is bound to the Yellow Rose: The Gentle.
"I've travelled through the land of surrender and seen it all. I throw my heart out and keep my head up, and now I travel through the land of peace."
The Yellow Rose is associated with friendship, intuition, and fun. It is governed by the goddess Hestia and its sign is The Intertwined Rings, or True Friendship.
As a Yellow Rose, you always look out for your friends. You would much rather have strong ties with friends than a single tie with a lover and your devotion to your friends is clear. You may have great intuition and be able to read emotions clearly, but sometimes you can seem distant yourself.
What Rose Is Your Soul Bound To?

Michele is setting up "Ho Ho Holy Shit!" again this year. It was a riot last year. It is not fun for the whole family, so leave the kids at home.
I'll post the actual URL once Michele makes it live (right after Thanksgiving).
