Obsessions old & new

Jim: having our friend Mike build him some frames so he can pull together a photo show (location TBD; anybody know a gallery owner?); his new basement photo studio (pics coming)

Fisher: the Pour le Merit medal (coming his way this Christmas… shhhhh); Rosetta Stone German

Rhys: making dinner all by himself (night before last); Elephant and Piggie; Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea

Me: the Persian Empire (don't ask); budget cookbooks (I love the More-With-Less Cookbook
and just picked up Miserly Meals
at the library)

The cats: eating all they can hold, and more, of Atta Cat, the new dirt-freakin-cheap cat food we've been buying (contrary to our expectations, they seem to prefer it to the marginally more middle-class Meow Mix)*

Isn't that the most majestic Photoshop work you've ever seen? What do you suppose that cat is looking at?

Also: interview tomorrow afternoon for the position of moderator of the Portland Junior Spelling Bee. Tell me that would not be the bestest job in the whole wide world.

* I have just learned, via the magic of the Google, that American Nutrition, makers of Atta Cat, also makes a bargain-priced dog food called "Maintain Chunks." Is there some sort of naming award for which I can nominate this product?

    I call the endeavor to keep my size while pregnant ” Maintain Chunks “.
    ( Chunks is the nickname I give myself whilst preggo. )

    I raised two amazing kitties into their 17th year on Atta Cat and other similar nasty foods, the ingredients of which I refused to read. My husband referred to it as “Bones and Ash.”
    And I’m just glad I’d swallowed my coffee before I read “Maintain Chunks.” Best. Name. Ever.

    Trader Joe’s sells a pretty decent dry cat food that is also cheap.
