All four of my cats have really distinctive features. Shadow is as dark as his namesake with tufts of grey. Fluffy is large with gorgeously long hair. Shybutts has stark, distinct markings. And Static…well, his best feature isn’t his fur (short, tiny stripes on his side), but his eyes. They’re almost crossed. Not severely, but enough that every time I look at him, there’s just something strange about his head shot. Still adorable, just off.
Since I’ll be out of town Friday night through Sunday, I’m trying to cram a lot of preparation into the cracks of my days. A few minutes here can update the toll pass thing so I don’t have to pay cash for driving on toll roads. A few minutes there can help me feel like I won’t miss being on the computer for three days.
Yesterday I kicked some ass at the office because even though I won’t be missing any time there, I feel like I have to get as caught up as possible before Friday. There’s also the hope I can get a bit of an earlier start, if only to try to avoid the worst of driving into the sun. I just realized that yesterday. It’s going to stink.

I feel caught in a lull. I need to work hard to snap out of it.
Tonight should be fun with friends, a few more preparatory purchases for the drive, and another early night. I’m looking forward to it!
