Noteworthy events

Some little things that deserve to be mentioned:

June 19th of this year marked the 12th anniversary of my MS diagnosis.  According to some 'standards' I should be using a cane by now. HA! Not this chicky!  Yet another example of my non-conformity, of which I am proud.

June 26th was my six-month wedding anniversary.

Remember Agnes, the rescue kitty?  Well, she has adopted us as her own, which is good for her because nobody else wants a 15 year old cat.  She's very affectionate without being obnoxious about it.  Around the new year Bo (the husband not the dog) decided that she was cool and did not have to stay caged up all the time.  Nowadays Agnes has free run of the house until bed time when she has to go back into the condo overnight. With cats being the nocturnal beasts they are, letting her wander freely around the house all night means the other animals don't get any sleep.  Which in turn means we humans don't either.  And mama (me) needs her sleep!

OK well, it's July Fourth.  Time to get ready for the Independence Day bacchanalia.  Have fun and be safe!

P.S.  Caught "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" on cable last night.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.  I knew it couldn't totally suck because it came from the mind of Kevin Smith (Dogma is one of my favorite movies of all time), but it was actually better than I'd hoped it would be.  Terrific soundtrack, too!  **Note to brother and SIL:  You guys will not like it.

P.P.S.  Also watched something called Choke.  Offbeat for sure, but had quite a lot of humor in it.  I thought, anyway.  **Note to brother and SIL:  quite sure you wouldn't like this one either.
