The rest of the three-dayer

This past weekend was the Martin Luther King day holiday, so that means a three-dayer!

On Saturday, Steve was out shooting so I had the house to myself. I had a couple of projects, one of which was repairing the toy that came home with Ivan from the National Cat rescue. It is a little pillow with a Siamese cat printed on it. Ivan and Lalat love that toy and have been playing with it for years. It got ripped along one side, so I put in some fresh catnip and sewed it up. It was covered in Lalat drool in minutes if not seconds.

I decided to go out to Bookman’s to offload more DVDs and books. I exited with a ghost book by Eric Seltzer called “Your Neighborhood Gives Me the Creeps” (he is a ghost tour guide in Chicago) and the book “God is a Verb” which is a really famous book about Kabbalism that I’ve been wanting to read for a long time.

Sunday we watched the two football games that determined who was going to the Superbowl and those games were NUTS. The Pats ate the Colts for lunch (45-7) and the Seahawks facing the Packers was a super nailbiter. I would have liked to have seen the Packers go on to the Superbowl but the Seahawks are good too.

On Sunday we went to the Casa de los Ninos thrift store in search of nightstands for the guest room. We didn’t find any but the vinyl selection there is marvelous. Steve came home with some 80s New Wave he’d lost over the years and I got jazz and classical. After that we had a really disappointing lunch but discovered Grantstone Supermarket which is like our dear departed Vien Dong across from our first apartment in San Diego. It smelled like Orange County and made Steve homesick. They also had Indian MRE entrees, a wall of tea and all kinds of wonderful herbs and spices—I have curry leaves!

We worked out for about an hour and a half, then washed up and went to Jake’s and Sarah’s. Sarah had a recipe for cauliflower pizza crust that works out much better than I ever would have imagined. Never underestimate what you might find on Pinterest.

I need to show you and Steve the glory that is Green Tangerine.

Ozzie has this toy that's a green soft ball with a long fuzzy tail on a stick (very short bungie cord attaching it.) He doesn't necessarily want you to play with him with it. Instead, he has to make sure it's in whatever room we are. He'll drag it from room to room while meowing the whole time. We don't know if it's tribute or his woobie. Or both?

Cats meowing with something in their mouths sound weird as hell. First time he did it, we thought he was dying or something.

ETA: out of curiosity, what does the book say is haunted? I grew up in Chicago.
