"I ates meeses to pieces!!"

Ares is quite the little mouser. In the last couple of nights, he's brought up at least 4 that I know of. One was while I was sleeping. He loves to drop them on the bed and then catch them again. He's left half-a-mouse on my bed for when I get home before. Anyway, I've taken three from him recently and let them go outside. This morning was the third. I turned to him and said, "You're not going to bring another one in while I'm gone, or worse, leave me another half of one, are you?" I guess his response was prescient, as I found a little mouse foot and a little mouse tail next to my shoes. -_-;; Cats... what can ya do?

I missed most of It be Talk Like a Pirate Day ^all this very day, mateys!. In WoW, you could talk to commoners in the cities and they'd buff you with Corsair Costume, so you got a pirate look for an hour. It's the little things. :D

Also, I found out how to pronounce John Scalzi's cat's name. Her name is Ghlaghghee. That's gh as in "cough," l as in "loony," a as in "woman," gh, gh, and ee as in "seems to be an odd duck." Yeah, it's pronounced "Fluffy." I remember one of the first lessons in Spanish class was to learn how to pronounce the oddly spelled English word ghoti. Gh as in "cough," o as in "women," and ti as in "nation." Sounds like "fish."
