Today we had to say goodbye to an old friend. It’s hard. I’ve only known our cat Lily for about 7 years, but kashi’s had her since she was a kitten—nearly 19 years now. Lily’s been declining for a while, first a bit arthritic, then a little senile. Yesterday, we found out she was in an advanced state of kidney failure, and basically treatment would merely serve to prolong her agony. So we decided to say goodbye to her. And it’s hard.

Kashi tells me Lily was a mighty huntress in her day, and I believe it. I’ve decided to remember her not as the ailing, pained creature she was at the end, but rather the often cantankerous ball of fluff who liked most to bask in the sun on the balcony of our old place, upside down, curled like a shrimp, warming her old bones, and smiling peacefully. Yeah, that’s our Lily.

Rest in peace, ol’ gal.

Marketing Silliness
So, I have far too many things going on in life to bother paying attention to anything political these days. I don't know who these people are, nor do I really care. Therefore, take the following not as support or condemnation of a particular political view, but rather as a ridiculing of the idiocy of marketing departments everywhere.

I see the following image on a billboard on the drive home everyday, and it really bothers me. I know what they're going for, of course, but this is not what it look like to me. I mean, did the marketers not realise the man's head is not pointy like an 'A' but rather ovoid like an 'O'? Because, and correct me if I'm way off base here, what it seems to me they're trying to advertise is the desperate need to get out there and harvest:

Cut the crop, indeed.

Happy Rejection!
I recently submitted a story to Weird Tales, and just heard back. It is a rejection, but a very reassuring one, as you can see:

"Well-written tale that drew me in, but unfortunately I'll have to pass. It's not quite what I'm looking for, but I would love to see more of your work."
