psychephage and I were in Fells Point last night, hanging out with one of the boy's classmates. In the bar in which we ended up, there was a cat. And not just any cat. Oh no, this was The Fattest Cat. It was awesome. I picked up the giant grey lump of kitty at one point, and he couldn't entirely fit on my lap. There was so much fat there, you could barely tell he was purring. (But he was.) What a good cat for snuggles. I really wanted to take a picture, but I didn't have my real camera, and my phone just wasn't up to handling the lighting conditions.

It was a good night. Sharif made dinner, which turned out phenomenally well. Then we went into Baltimore to hang out with Juan, who's a really good guy. We all had fun. Of course, I had a little more beer than I ought, and stayed out rather later than I ought, so I'm not at the top of my game today. I could have used several more hours in bed.

My boss approached me yesterday with the question "Are you ever going to take some time off?" Heh. Apparently, I need to use some vacation, or I'm going to stop accruing and miss out. So, sometime this month (Hello, December!), there shall be Joanna relaxation. I just need to decide what to do. This is an awesome kind of problem to have. I know that I want to go to Vegas, and I want to go to Iceland, but both of those are trips that I will want to plan more than two weeks in advance, so I'm thinking something more local and cost-effective in the short term.

That is not the recent development to which I was referring a few days ago. On that I remain mysterious, but just because I'm lazy.

I will be in Maryland from December 15 until December 26. In case you forgot. That would be a good time for days off, I think. But then, I have not the moneys to be taking trips when on a trip.

Oh yes! This is definitely a consideration!

I am currently thinking about taking off two Mondays and Tuesdays in a row, thus making it a December with only one full week of work. And one of those weeks would be less than two days long! (We always get to leave early the day before a holiday.) So that would mean I'd have off, while you are here, including weekends, 17,18,19,20,23,24,25,26 December. Not bad.

oh, not knowing the recent development is driving me crazy! I thought of the following possibilities:

1. Joanna has a new job.

2. Joanna is going on a trip.

3. Joanna is moving again.

4. Joanna is getting married.

(giggling about #4)

some rather unrealistic additions to that list.

5. Joanna has a new piercing.

6. Joanna met Colin Firth.

7. Joanna has taken up the digeridoo and is something of a prodigy. She has earned a scholarship and will be going to graduate school to further her digeridoo skills.

8. Joanna is a ninja.

Yes, I am also quite curious. I actually have a guess, but won't post it for fear of jinxing it's maybe being right.

Maybe she's doing everything on our lists!

Like um...she's getting married to Colin Firth, and will then, of course, be moving in with him, and she's going on a trip somewhere for their honeymoon to some remote island where the natives give her a piercing and teach her to play the digeridoo. And...she has a new job as a ninja to help pay for her digeridoo graduate program. Because everyone knows that ninjas make a ton of money.

Truly. Ninjas are rolling in it. And Sharif is 10 ninjas, which means that he's super-duper rich.
