I'm beginning to pick up on Spodie's preferred means of communication when
he's peeved. He doesn't urinate on the carpet or clothes or anything.
He'll meow. And if that doesn't work he'll start using his claws a bit
Like this morning. I'm sitting at the computer, replying to some email Spring sent me from
Oshkosh when Spodie had to get to the top of Spring's monitor that instant,
as quickly as possible.
And I was the spring board.
And he used his claws for traction, which not only punctured my pants, but
punctured me in the process. It was just his little way of saying
“Hey! Give me some food and clean the litter box while you're at it!”
What a pleasent experience it is to clean a cat's litter box.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
