a tale of two cats

April 11, 2005

handyman will came today to fix my air conditioning yet again. maybe the third time’s a charm. aj was his typical friendly self, following will around like he was trying to help him. then he climbed up will’s leg onto his back as if will was a tree. really, i do teach my cats more manners than that! i swear aj only does that to people who feed him and buy him toys and play with him and cuddle him…basically anyone who takes care of him gets the honor of his claws digging in them as he climbs up their bodies.

julius is more wary of calling anyone and everyone a friend. he would walk over to will and sniff him, walk back to me, walk back and sniff will, walk over to me. then he looked at me as if to say, i really don’t know about him, mom.

oh how different my boys are.

i’ve been struggling with my weight lately, and even though he doesn’t think i’m fat i’m not feeling too good about myself. joe just emailed me to tell me he’s been doing research and found a new workout for me to try. it’s little things like that that show me how much he loves me.

a night at the movies

April 11, 2005

which of these does not belong in a movie theater:
a) seats
b) patrons
c) employees
d) a stroller

for most sane people, the correct answer would be d. so when joe and i walked into our theater saturday night and saw a stroller by the last row, our hearts sank. the stroller contained a baby. the baby was screaming at the top of its lungs.

the baby’s parents came in. maybe they would leave. no, they brought their two-year-old. so we watched the ring two complete with the screams and cries of an infant and a two-year-old. joe went out to complain and was told the couple couldn’t be kicked out for that. i beg to differ. one of the employees came in and talked to them, and i think they knew we had complained because they came and sat right behind us. we’re still wondering what kind of a parent brings infants and toddlers to the movies anyway.
