No hallucinations, good point.

Feeling better today, Taxy?
Not really. Not quite as weak.

Thanks for asking.

That is truly un-American, no wonder I have to fill it up to the rim!

I'm getting ready for a 1.5 hour planned power outage. HydroQuébec is doing some maintenance.

At least they warned you, right? But since you're on right now I guess they got the power up just fine. Good!

I'm avoiding work - the job I do the best. If I get any lazier I'm going to turn into a cat. Since I'm not flexible enough to groom in places not proper to mention I guess I'd better go do something.

Time to start working on dinner. Wonder if I'll get that apple pie made tonight...

Yup, they warned me about the power outage this past weekend. An automated, electronically generated voice told me by phone.

Actually, I stayed online for a while after the power went out. My laptop had a full battery, as did my phone. I set the phone to be a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

An automated message told me today that my electric meter was going to be read in the next couple days and to have any dogs inside... stupid electric company. Only in America.

I'm watching that disturbing movie again, There's Something About Kevin.

They installed a new electric meter this summer. They read it remotely. No concern about dogs (or aggressive cats).

I just remembered I should have posted something very important to me! I was spending a few minutes of quiet time with my two cats and my dog.

I posted of Mamma's message to all of you. She likes you all but was unable to sign in tonight. She said she was very proud of me to choose this nice social website.

I am thinking of Mamma and Papa. I can not wait until November!

I am also writing to my journal. I feel I have very nice feelings for my nice friends here. I am closer to you on this website than I am to any classmates. I have told Mamma of this. It is when I said this of you to her and asked her again please to join us, she said she shall. I am so happy! Now I have all of you and my Mamma here.

Papa likes this website also. Mamma has told him of it, and I have spoken of this to him also. My parents and DA are my most very, very best friends. I am so very blessed by God to be with them and to have them in my life so very much.

I am sitting here before my computer typing these words from my heart and just having so very much to be grateful for that I am often overcome to very happy tears sometimes.

Oh and another thing I shall do. I shall try very hard to never end all the postings I do without saying one thing to all of you. Thank you for to be here for me. Thank you for being so very kind to my Mamma. Thank you for making me to understand more about my life and my new country, and thank you all for just being alive and on this website.

God bless you all. You all have made me to be very grateful of you.

Your friend,
~Cat

Cat, we're glad you landed here at DC and have become online friends with us. But you're young and in a new place - make sure you make friends with people out in the real world. It's easier to share a piece of pie with someone across the table than someone across the world.
