Upset cat

No sun shine this morning. So The Mighty Fang could not sun himself. So he followed me around whining miserably until I went to brush my teeth and he beat me to the sink, jumping up and putting his front paws down in it and looking quizzically at the faucet. I turned the faucet on a little and gave him water, of course... photo to come (I forgot the memory chip in the camera at home).

Lately I've been drinking Korean green tea rather than Chinese green tea. They put roasted/malted rice in there. Makes it much smoother than the Chinese variety. Too bad I have to go to the Korean grocer to get it, that's way out of my way. Sigh!

I made the mistake of formatting my Macbook's primary OS partition with a case-sensitive filesystem when I installed Leopard on the new 320gb hard drive. Now several programs won't work right. Bummer. So this means that this weekend, I'll need to make sure I have an up-to-date Time Machine backup, then re-format and re-install from scratch and then do a system restore from Time Machine. Bummer :-(. Oh well, while it's doing its hours of work I can change the tires on my motorcycle and do some spring cleaning in the garage and otherwise do something productive rather than wasting time on stupid computer crap...

Okay, time to go change the air filter in my Jeep. 18,000 miles of often-dusty-dirty duty has got it looking bad and banging it out on the fender has quit working. Oh well. $27 for a Purolator air filter? Geep! What are they making these things out of, solid gold?! Oh well, so it goes...
