"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

Care package from down under!!

I would show a picture... but it would be of a ripped open package of Tim Tams, kind of like a bear had gotten into them or something. I'm trying to ration them out at a reasonable pace, but with finals season in full swing, it's tough.

Celia had a business trip to the USA a few weeks ago, she was in San Francisco, Houston, (not sure if there were more cities) but nothing on the East Coast. I would love to actually MEET Celia, since we have become such good friends through blogging. She snuck me a VALUE SHARE PACK of the original Tim Tams, and they are ever so lovely.

She also sent an issue of YARN, an Australian knitting magazine.

Pics for next time. I have to die for cute pics of my kitties snuggling, a finished sock (one Jaywalker done!)...

Not that anyone really thinks I blog on an even remotely regular basis, but just FYI that I am deep in the midst of finals (30 page paper due last week, 15 page paper this week, 25 pager next week, presentation the week after that, then I start summer classes....) I don't remember why I signed up for this torture right now, but I have to trust that it'll be worth it in the end.

Cat update: Cosmo is doing SO much better!! Thanks for all the well wishes. He comes and jumps on the bed for sleepy time. He is in full force with "must touch the mommy" and has, in fact, started to provoke his brother into some fights (which I break up b/c he still has the e-tube). Last night, he was laying next to me on the couch, and Danger was occupying my lap. Danger started swishing his tail in front of Cosmo's face. Cosmo accepted the invitation by taking a big chomp out of Danger's tail, and Danger had to respond by a quick "WHAP WHAP" on Cosmo's head. He remained undeterred and continued to chomp on the tail... another couple "WHAP WHAP WHAPs" and after I was done laughing, I reclaimed Danger's tail for him.

I'll be back with pics... probably sooner than later, since it'll give me something else to do (other than write the papers).

Good luck on the papers... I do remember that my home was never cleaner than during finals. :) SO glad to hear about Cosmo!! Nothing like sassing to show he's doing better.

That is SO funny! I can totally see your cats bopping and chewing on each other. I'm glad that Cosmo is getting back into his "normal" routine!

What could be more enticing than writing papers?

I'm so happy to hear Cosmo's claiming the mommy and chomping tails! (Sorry, Danger).

You did this to yourself because, like all good PhD students, you are a masochist at heart. ;) You'll make it though, friend! And I'm sure when things have calmed down with the kitties, you'll rediscover your love of your work.

Glad to hear the kitties are fighting over you - that's always a good sign of health!
