This is for miss sandcat.



See this gorgeous kitty. He lives at The Living Desert, which is one of my favorite places in Palm Springs, well actually Palm Desert. We have a vacation house across the street. I'd been going for years but I finally got an annual membreship and we contribute where we can to help them out.

A lot of the enclosures here have a kind of open feel to them. They will often have thin wires that you can reach through, if you're stupid like me, instead of glass or bars. They ahve two sandcats who are rescues and when I first saw them I just fell in love. Like those stupid people who jump over barriers and get their arms chewed off by bears and tigers, I found myself doing the same thing. I mean they look just like cats, only a little bit bigger. So there I was saying, inane cat person things like, "oh my God you're so beautiful," and 'Here kitty kitty, here pretty kitty," and they came over to me. I've forgotten exactly what happened but one of them was super close and let me touch it for a second, then smelled me, decided I stunk and whacked me, so swiftly and powerfully. It was impressive and I felt properly chastised, and weirdly, because I got a couple of good cuts, honored and happy about it. I just looooove these beautiful desert cats.

Anyway that's my story for Sandcat, even though I think I already told you this once before : )

Woohoo, my chalkware vase sold for $77.00, yeay, and even though that's less than half of what I paid for it originally I'm still thrilled. It just makes me feel hopeful that I can earn money on my own without having to rely on my Mother. I did it for so long before, so I'm really hoping I'll be able to do it now.

My other item, this rhinestone purse compact, is currently going for $75.00 and I have several days left. Sadly though my little rose embroidered, and pearl beaded compact, is only at twelve dollars but that's okay, at least someone is bidding. This is so exciting!

If I didn't have to go to the market and then a neighborhood wine and cheese welcome party thing (I'm our block captain) and then watch the Emmy's, finally, I hope, I would just sit her and list more things. There's money waiting to be found.

I'm confused, the Emmy's aren't on yet. Joan is doing a live pre-show thing, but aol has a little write up thang that describes the opening number and some of the winners. Are the Emmy's held in New York or something, or are they tape delayed? Huh, I'm confused.

While my heart breaks for people who have been more personally affected by the events of September 11th, than I have, I don't see how men having to wear business attire to the Emmy's is helping anything. When Mayor Giullliani stood in the middle of the Met to promote the Opera and encouraged people to keep on living, were people dressed down. Black I totally understand and support, even understated and tasteful is good, but why business attire?
