We have kittens.
That’s right, it’s cute-fest-2005 in our apartment right now. We got a pair of
8 6 week old kittens on Sunday from Anita’s co-worker who got them dumped on her by her mom. They are a brother (black) and sister (white & orange) and have very quickly bonded with Anita and I… they are ok with Nova, but she’s not yet ok with them. Nova actually submitted to them, belly up and looking away; our guard dog proving her grit once again. We are taking them in for shots and vet initiation tomorrow.
We have yet to come up with names for them. I would like to keep up the science theme of pet names (Quazar, Psi, Nova…) but nothing really effective has come up, yet. If you are quick and think of suggestions, let me know (comment, AIM, or email)… I’ll post the names when we determine them.
Ultimate Summer League is over.
I had a great time playing Ultimate on the summer league. It was good to be outside and to have a team of people have to work together… and to have people rely on me to make it, so I didn’t lazy-out of going just because it’s really hot. And MAN was it hot for the tournament this past Saturday. We were outside from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm and it was sunny and HOT all day. I ended up mildly sun-burned but not as bad as I would have expected from such exposure. Our team played great, we won the first game and lost the second, but we lost to the #1 team and we gave them a really good fight. Then we sat around watching and heckling the other games for semi-finals and finals… for the finals game, people were silly – many people half drunk and a most of us were sun-weary… whenever play stopped frisbees were rolled from side to side of the field by spectaters aiming (poorly) for each other. There was a spirit award (given to one of the organizer’s team — “rigged”) and a party that night at some bar (I didn’t make it beacuse I was playing video games with Phil).
I’ll be able to play more frisbee at pickup games until it gets too cold… and then I might be able to find something…
Also, we are playing Capture the Flag this weekend. We’re playing around sundown on Sunday at someplace in Columbus. Want to play? Email me.
