jaime - lauri's boyfriend - decided he wanted a kitten. because he is off to blow up iraq soon, the kitten is living with us. why he needed to get one just now i'm not really sure, but i don't mind because she is tiny and adorable and spastic and looks like a cross between a chihuaha and a rat (except totally cute) and her name is dimple.
update! lauri informs me that she found me asleep on the couch last night and made me go to bed and set my alarm (but didn't check that i did it properly, it seems). and i was grumpy about it.
