Yeah, I'm still here.

I went back to school in September, and grad school is a LOT of work. It's interesting, and I'm learning a lot, but it's still a massive amount of work. My classmates are all very nice, and fun to hang out with. I've already gained a reputation as the strange one from Alaska.

At the end of September, [livejournal.com profile] eofs and Guido stayed with us overnight, in the middle of their grand U.S. tour. Although I've known Emma for at least ten years, this is the first time we've met in person. It was a good visit, though brief. But they brought us Cadbury chocolate. :)

In October my Sapphire-kitty fell off the couch and got a concussion (yes, apparently cats can get concussions). It was incredibly scary, especially when she couldn't walk properly for days afterward, but the vet says she'll be okay. Shes just a little more wobbly now, and can't jump as well as she used to. But it's still making me think a lot about how both my cats are getting pretty old....*sigh*

Last week was our second wedding anniversary. We went to Lowell, Massachusetts for the weekend to see Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood, and it was amazing. The show was completely improv, based on suggestions from the audience, and utterly brilliant.
I still can't believe I've been married for two years. What insanity is that? But hey, somehow we're still here. :)

Good to hear from you. Completely understand why you don't have time to post more often, though. Grad school will do that to you. Glad to hear it's going well!

Still alive is good ;)

I'm glad you're enjoying grad school, even if it is a lot of work, and that your classmates are nice.

Poor kitty! I visited my gran yesterday, and her normally standoffish cat kept coming up to rub his head against my foot. I thought he was being affectionate until I noticed a good bit of hair missing behind one ear - I suspect he'd been fighting, got the fur ripped out, and was using my foot as a convenient head-scratcher!

Congratulations on your anniversary!
