Dog chases tail

I finally have the section of LD leading up to where Daniel reaches the cabin in decent enough shape to when I can plow ahead.  He's still a bit too indistinct for me to feel great about this, yet, but now I can see some spine in him and making the whole thing Tad's idea works a LOT better.  It's going to change details later in the story, but this'll do till I'm through it, again.  Then I may follow through with some other aspects I want to rearrange.

Pretty day, today.  I was out and about doing laundry and getting some groceries and running other errands.  I wanted to get my car washed but the line at the place was 10 cars deep so blew that off.  Still, the salt on the roads really clings to your car's finish, and I want it off before it begins to rip through the paint and start some rusting.

I bought Muse's "Revolution" -- and while I like the music, the CD itself is pretty poorly done.  Songs are mashed together that should not be in close proximity, and the opening song cuts in and out while the music is going.  In fact, I'm really surprised at how awkward many of the transitions are.  Neither Depeche Mode nor Enigma never would let such awkwardness onto one of their CDs.

I've been reading, Squirrel seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris. It is fresh work of his using animals in adult context and it is funny. At least for me it is. The Faithful Setter, a dog story was pretty damn good.

Millie, our cat still chases her tail.

I work in an office that has two Himalayan cats, one of whom loves to sit on an orange swivel chair and be spun about as she digs her claws into the fabric, the other lies on the central heating grate and plays with her tail as if it was something she'd never seen before. She named it George. Then they take turns on the heating pad, acting as if they were freezing to death.
