Another kitty anchors herself in our home!

Dec 21 2009 Published by under Animals, Personal

Book writing is coming along, and I actually can see light at the end of the tunnel.  The biggest section left to write is on tensor analysis, and the biggest difficulty is determining how much to include in my book -- tensor analysis isn't that broadly used in optics, and I don't want to take up precious page space on it.  Beyond that, I've got 3 or 4 other small sections to write and/or complete, and they're the fun ones.  With the pressure off me a little bit (and exams graded), I'm planning to write a history of science post later this week.

In the meantime, today we officially declared that we're going to keep Sophie, the hyperactive foster kitty we picked up last month (right now she's sitting in my lap, demanding attention.)  I managed (through pure luck -- my photography skills are lacking) to get a cute pic of her inside the Christmas tree, planning to demolish it:

    I'm looking forward to getting a copy of that math book. Where is it going to be sold? By the way, during my short vacation in the Caribbean I finally finished the book you recommended at some point: "Newton and the Counterfeiter". It was an engaging and historically captivating read. Newton was quite a fascinating bloke. Enjoy your vacation (if you take any...) and Merry Christmas!

    And who out there is surprised by the fact that you guys are planning to keep Sophie? 🙂

    • I'm not, but then again she's really attached herself to me. I'm probably as much at fault if not more than the wife this time!

      Well...the plan was to put her up for adoption - really. But she is so cute and so much fun. I didn't want her to go to just ANY place. This way I am certain she will be well taken care of.

      • I can vouch for the wife's sincerity. She was really adamant about putting this kitty up for adoption. It's really hard to give her up, though, when she's the only cat in our house that actually likes to sit on your lap.

  • You realize that you are basically living inside LOLCATS at this point, right? BEWARE!
