I feel certain I came here for something …  
ETA: I REMEMBERED! Is anyone in Budapest next week and would be keen to hang out with one of my most fab flistees at any point? She is arty and cool, funny and fandom savvy in several genres. I realise it's a long shot, but you never know! I've had catch-ups with a number of people met through LJ and all have been great :-) And now I have five minutes to get to bed, see below …

Alas, I am physically and mentally exhausted at the moment. Nothing dire, just a lot of complex things that apparently only I can sort at work (where I go wrong is in saying 'this could be done better if we did it like this…' rather than 'this could be done better, you should work out how!') coupled with trying to get a lot of things done at home and not sleeping enough. 'Bed by midnight!' is my catchcry again!

I had smoked salmon for dinner. Monster the cat flung herself at my leg: Your Dinner Is Necessary To Me! she miaowed.

I tore her off a generous chunk, flaked it into small pieces and popped it down for her. She licked it a little, then looked back at me: Could You Get Some Chicken Instead? she said with her eyes. And her waily miaows. She really is our evil cat. Cookie, by contrast, is grateful for pats and string waving and believes human food is for humans.

Anyway, reasons for posting: a very, very happy birthday to leela_cat! You are such a delightful person, I hope that this year is magnificent for you and that today is a mammoth stream of porters bearing gifts and cake!

And the most stupendous of days to ecosopher! I am constantly in awe of your ability to multitask a mammoth life and write with such lucid elegance. I hope that this year is filled with rewards and that your table groans with giftage and handmade cards :-)

That work / home / sleep situation sounds very wearing. I do hope things improve and that you regain your pzazz soon.

Aw, that is so kind and sweet of you. I actually read nearly all of your post thinking it was my Melbourne friend nn, with that b/w icon and cat and over-much work ... only the cats names finally clued me in :)

... if only they had street cats in Budapest! There's no street lights or pavement and there must be cats in all those dark crumbling places but I'm too scared by now to go looking *has serious bodily withdrawal symptoms from her cats ALREADY coz the b******* refuse to jump on lamp*

Oh, cat annoyances. They can be soooo maddening at times.

I hope that you can sort all the crazy rl things out soon!

cats really are evil in general, though, no matter how much we love them.

Thank you! ♥ No cake yet, but tomorrow there shall be some.

Aw, you. I'm blushing. Thank you.
