Many people here at work know me through my incredibly brightly decorated cube. (Comics posters will do that). However, SQ sent in this interesting article/slide show that demonstrates I have not gone far enough...

In other news, I was going to regale y'all with the tale of how Faith escaped from the bathroom where we're keeping the kittens, but honestly now that they've almost all done it once or twice (the most frequent offenders being Xander and Faith, shown together here) it hardly seems quite as dramatic... We expect that we'll be returning the kittens sometime in the next week, and while it's optimistic, it's possible that they might be in their "forever homes" (that's a phrase we use at the shelter) by Xmas.

You know, I'm not sure if I ever said why I got involved in this... specifically volunteering at the shelter (the fostering just being an outgrowth of that). I have to say it was MLW's idea originally, I think her exact words were something to the effect of, "You like animals... why don't you see if the Animal Welfare folks need volunteers..." And why it's true that MLW was the impetus that got me to send the first email on the topic, I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the examples set by other folks I've known of the years on the value of caring for animals. I already mentioned MLW, and I'll do so again, but I also am thinking here of the work that Boppie does, and going back even further, well, I'd be leaving out a lot if I didn't point to Ms. K. Even though we don't talk that much anymore (and even if, if memory serves, I gave her a hard time about it back in the day), I think that her example was something that made an impression on me.

So anyway, enough of my yammering. More cute kitten pictures coming as soon as they get out of the camera...

Coming soon, more info on comic book movies... (I know, you can hardly wait...)

The Golden Compass... coming out this weekend, and while other plans prevent me from seeing it, the movie looks pretty cool. And so is the website.

Check it out, my daemon is a female tiger (I hope this doesn't mess up the blog format...):

Apparently you can comment on how accurate a view of me that seems to be and the daemon might morph. Be nice.
