This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure

My offer on that house was accepted.

Red-ass monkey included.

It's gonna be sweet. Huge fireplace, deck...

And ...

a fucking monkey!

I'm going to re-do the kitchen and make it more midget-friendly, too.

It's basically Neverland Ranch, with views.


Thanks for the nice emails about Doodlebug (a/k/a Scooby, a/k/a Scooby Doo, a/k/a Scooby Doodle, a/k/a Scooby Doodlebug, a/k/a Doodlebug, a/k/a Doodle, a/k/a Bug... ahe has been called all of the above over the years, but really, she's Doodlebug).


Did any of you really ever read the archives? I had some emails asking for them. They are somewhere.

I need your discipline
I need your help

They got the lab results back from the Doodlebug's tumor. It is what they call feline fibrosarcoma, which is a malignant type of cancer that grows tumors right between the cat's shoulder blades, and is somehow related to vaccines that were all, until recently, administered in that very area.

The tumor was removed and the margins are clean, however, this cancer is a bad one, and the tumor usually reappears somewhere between five days and three months after surgery. Occasionally, there is successful treatment with surgery and radiation... except the radiation is required five times a week for four weeks, and she would have to be anesthetized.

And, here's the kicker, the closest place that does radiation is in Spokane, which is over five hours from Bozeman, so it really isn't an option.

Those of you who know me are aware that this is some devastating news. She is ten, and I have had her since she was just under six weeks old.

I guess I will enjoy her and love her as much as possible for the time being.


In case you didn't believe me, here is photographic evidence of snowmobiling in 90 degree weather:


Nine Inch Nails is giving their new album away for free on their website. It is really damn good, especially Discipline and Echoplex.

If you like Nine Inch Nails, you will really like this album. It is his best one in years... and he gave it away for free.
