New job, day one

I did a full day working with KC, and he was wowed by how much stuff I get done. He's kind of hyper, so my task is to stay on track. I work at the dining room table for the moment, with his brindle boxer dog Lena wandering around and getting slobber on me. I love dogs, so that's just fine. Except I might be allergic to her; I'm sniffling and blowing my nose a lot.

The goal, however, is for me to work remotely. Between professional Dropbox, Rocketmatter.com (a cloud-based software for law offices), and leaving my professional Gmail open, I should be able to only come downtown once or twice a week. The only problem with that is Chug. Chug wants to be with me All The Time, which is fine if I'm just puttering on the internet for fun and a little work, but not when we are trying to get bankruptcy documents filed on PACER.

Yanksgiving is Thursday, and we're going to Negativsteve's Orphan Thanksgiving up in Phoenix. Steve and I are doing the cooking. We're bringing up an apple pie, a potato/onion/cheese delight I got from Seba O'Kiley (the Southern Fried Kitchen Witch), and a cucumber salad. Also Steve's finished and seasoned by hand cast iron cookware and possibly the propane stove we keep out in our enclosed patio, we haven't decided yet. Yes, we are hardcore enough to bring our own stove.

I have the same problem with Maddie when I'm working (I work remotely, too). Still haven't found a solution for it :/

Is Chug another pet or a child? I don't think you've mentioned it before.

Chug is the cat formerly known as Bucky. The change happened when he was crawling on me and I said, "Chug, settle down!" This name seems to have stuck; he is definitely the engineer on the Fun Train that goes chug-chug-chug.

Yeah, that's like Ozzie. We find that if we give him All The Attentions at certain times he's less of a needy butthole throughout the day.
