My cat, I've noticed, practices the fine cat art of cat mudra. The other day, sensing I was stressed, he climbed upon my stomach and assumed the "cat with no legs" mudra. Then he held it, with his head alert and proud, eyes closed for several minutes. As if to say, it could be worse, you could be a cat with no legs.
Cats are full of timeless wisdom. Mostly because they have no sense of time.
I noticed another pose he likes is the "Evisceration is useless" as in "evisceration is useless, it will not ruin my good mood." Four paws up in the air.
I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of any at the moment.

Many exciting things may be happening this week, but rather than speculating, I will instead say that I had a great Thanksgiving, and reorganized the house with the help of the lovely Meff. I purchased a beautiful wardrobe on craigslist, which caused a series of rearranging items. This in turn led to much deep cleaning, and the apartment now looks great. There is junk in the closet to go through, but otherwise, I am ready for this year's impending Buffy Coma, which needs to be very productive. So much art to finish! And, it appears I am very close to having a functional live-in studio, just need some gear. I have set it as a high priority to obtain the Canon Rebel EOS. The price has come WAY down, and the whole kit is available at a discount on amazon. Also, a decent scanner, as my all-in-one printer/scanner combo experiment hasn't gone well. I am moving towards a media-hub computer with an awesome monitor for movie watching/photo editing, and a couple of laptops networked in. I plan on fixing up the tablet PC, which was nailed with hideous viruses in Tokyo, and making it a comic book reader. Comic books are readily available in e-book format, and a tablet is exactly what I want to read it on. Also, then I wouldn't be tempted by the ipad, which is so full of DRM, I would rather continue to avoid it.

Thanksgiving was year eight of Vegetarian Feasting. The NY Times seems to have picked up on this trend, and published to that effect now. I did my wild mushroom and brie bread pudding, as well as a root vegetable mash, roasted squash, cranberry, curry grits, cocktails, leek tart, cheese course with an amazing aged French cheese in the shaped of a bell, foccacia, gravy, parsnips, pomegranate salad...and then I made squash-stuffed pasta shells with cream sauce, and schiacciata with leftovers. Roasted potatoes latkes...much cooking has happened over here.

More soon!

Lucky enough to be back from catching World Inferno Friendship Society, going back stage, on the list...and then going to the Dresden Dolls opening night in NYC (also for free.) It was very tiring, and very satisfying. Off to work momentarily. Brian's drumkit alone was a sight to behold, and a far cry from when they were getting their start seven years ago. Hanging out with Kyle Cassidy a bit, thanking an Army of Toys fan, who is a huge patron...quite intense. Now to hang out with babies...

Progress on the Sea Chantey front as well. Kicking butt, names taken.

It's been an exciting couple of weeks. A trip to NYC, being put up in a Times Square Hotel room, shopping in SoHo, and then a wonderful trip to Philadelphia, attending the Mutter Ball, a fundraiser for the museum done in Victorian drag. Torrential rains coming back from Philly, and then the stomach flu for three days. Epic!

Carrie Nation

Anybody wondering what to get me for my birthday? Souvenir Hatchet. Oh yes.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_Nation


"Hatchetations"

Nation continued her destructive ways in Kansas, her fame spreading through her growing arrest record. After a raid in Wichita her husband joked that she should use a hatchet next time for maximum damage. Nation replied, "That's the most sensible thing you have said since I married you".

Alone or accompanied by hymn-singing women she would march into a bar and sing and pray while smashing bar fixtures and stock with a hatchet. Between 1900 and 1910, she was arrested some 30 times for "hatchetations," as she came to call them. Nation paid her jail fines from lecture-tour fees and sales of souvenir hatchets.[6] In April of 1901 Nation came to Kansas City, Missouri, a city known for its wide opposition to the temperance movement, and smashed liquor in various bars on 12th street in Downtown Kansas City.[7] She was promptly arrested, hauled into court, and fined $500 ($12,300 in 2007 dollars), although the judge suspended the fine so long as Nation never returned to Missouri.
