In Which Cats Appear

The buzzing bugs buzz louder each night. They have the sound of desperation. I imagine that mating season is passing and those that have not yet found mates are the ones getting louder. I hear no crickets among them, so the crickets must have gotten lucky. I wish some insect-eating animals would get lucky and devour all the buzzers. My ears are getting tired.

But LOL Brutal Attack.

Although I have a watermelon this week I just realized that I haven't had any casaba this year. At least I don't remember having had any. The way my memory has been lately I can't be positive. It must be the drought that has caused them to be rare and the prices so high. Another reason to hope for a wet winter and a thick snowpack in the mountains by next spring. This is only the second time this year they've had watermelons as cheap as $3.99, so it's only the second time I've had watermelon... I think.

The new cable box is working nicely, and I even got the remote programmed so it turns on both the box and the television set at the same time. I had to use two remotes before, because I'm inept with technology, but when I called to have Comcast activate the new box the helpful service rep guided me through programming the remote as well. No more turning off the box and forgetting to turn off the set, or vice-versa. It just night have been worth the three days without television to get that done.

Tonight I'll probably use up the last can of chili from my most recent binge buy. I hope one of the stores has it on sale again soon. Chili is one thing I never want to be out of for long. Plus if I save enough on bargain chili I might spring for a costly casaba before they vanish altogether.

I might get to sleep pretty early tonight, too, as I had only a brief cat nap this afternoon before I was rudely awakened, ironically, by the cat. Ah, what a life.

    Friday I managed to wake up more than an hour earlier than I had on Thursday, so I guess it qualifies as a good day. Not that anything of any…
