this and that

I had a new experience in cat ownership parenthood last night - giving them pills. Thankfully, Jeff had done it before, and with two of us, it wasn't all that bad, but I'd had to try to do that with one person.

We made some fantastic chicken teriyaki for dinner last night.

I woke up from a dream this morning that I was a Cylon, and we were having a weekend retreat about how to be better Cylons. I woke up as they were giving us ballroom dance lessons; my partner sucked and couldn't lead for anything, but was a nice guy.

I woke up because Marty pounced on my chest and then snuggled in to go back to sleep. That was nice. :)

Yesterday was my mom's birthday - she's 56, how did that happen? - but due to scheduling quirks, we couldn't do anything with our whole family yesterday, so they picked me up this morning and we hit IHOP for a delayed family birthday breakfast (signs you've grown up - your dad doesn't argue with you when you and your sister split the check [1]). We had a giggly, chatty time. :) My rule when going to breakfast is to try to get things that I don't make at home (actually, that's pretty much my rule for going out to eat, period) so I got stuffed French toast. Oh, my, that's good stuff. If you find yourself at IHOP anytime soon, I highly recommend it - everyone at the table except for my dad had it, and we all thought it was very tasty. I'm getting ready to have my second piece for second breakfasts now. :)

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
