8952 – Wed

Not much to report today, dear journal… green line broke down on the way to work, but fortunately, I wasn’t late, due to my habit of being one ahead (learned via broward county – same rule applies – better early than late!) Payday today! just in time considering some untimely bills snuck up on us.

Pomonkey and Ripley are at their new foster parents place today – BHK and I are sad to see ’em go, but I think our allergies really started to get kicking… pretty timely send off for ’em.

BHK made a spectacular supper of stuffed shells, garlic bread, and salad for us – the in-laws went out for their 32nd (I think) wedding anniversary, so she and I had a nice private night at home to watch cheesy movie The Covenant. Not bad in a goofy flick sort of way. Sort of a cheap hybrid of the Matrix meets the Craft.

8951 – tues

BHK is taking Pomonkey and Ripley off to their new foster home tomorrow. I’ll miss ‘em, though I’ve gotten used to the idea that they’re just visiting, not permanent family members. It’s hard not to get emotionally attached to little baby animals.

Newton and Pye both weigh a ton next to those little critters… I’d say Pye weighs four to five times as much, at least. No fat, either, all kitty muscles.

Marty put me onto a nifty tool alternate to Filezilla called WinSCP (WinSCP is a SFTP client and FTP client for Windows. Its main function is the secure file transfer between a local and a remote computer. It uses Secure Shell (SSH) and supports, in addition to Secure FTP, also legacy SCP protocol.)

TM let it be known that she’s dating a new guy – I’m guessing that it’s been a few weeks now? I’m trying to mentally do the math, but I’m not sure I can think of how fast she got back on the horse after the breakup with DR. I hope she finds what she’s looking for with the new fellow.
