a nation of reptiles makes a mountain of scales

Every afternoon, this beast waits for me at the back door. Because I give him cookies.

This cat is a chair. Or is this chair a cat?

Hello babies!

Alright. Enough animals!
I have to go to work. And I have a lot of work to do.
I realize that those are two totally different animals (I don't know how I feel about that turn of phrase still).

I am not wearing any makeup today and we'll see how that goes. French women can pull that off. I decided this last night, that I can't be arsed to put more than two products on my face every morning. Moisturizer and maybe hydrocortizone, depending.
But that's it. The season change is making for some very dry skin.
I almost changed my mind twice already. I do not feel French-- rather, I feel frumpy. There is also a small red spot on my cheek and I don't know what that's about but I wish it would not exist there.

And then:

Sometimes Dan says things that make me feel confident about things I was not so sure about. I have known him for 8 years and this is still the case.

My parents are supposed to come home from China today. They didn't leave a flight itinerary when they left, they didn't call or write. The last email was two sentences and from last week. Both their phones go straight to voice mail when dialed. I don't know about this.

A normaler person would be more worried. I'm timing my worry for when I wake up tomorrow and they still aren't here and haven't contacted my brother or me.
