As you can see, they are quite enjoying their new cat lounger/scratcher. I do wish Ripley would quit munching on the edges though.

Thank you John Edwards

At Got Pitchfork, I say Farewell to the John Edwards Campaign and discuss why it mattered for all of us.

I adore the picture above- like all great photos, it reveals some truth about the subject. Contrast that scene with pictures of the Bush girls partying. Says it all, doesn't it?

Random kittenz

I'm depressed. This is my pathetic attempt to cheer myself up.

Fox Fur! Bitch!

When in doubt, look at pretty space pictures. This one is the Fox Fur Nebula.
This vibrant image depicts a turbulent area of outer space which, to some, evokes a fox, hence the name Fox Fur Nebula. It lies in the constellation Monoceros, the Unicorn, near the left arm of Orion, just below the large, bright star S Mon (not visible in this image).

The enigmatically textured shapes comprise dust and gas, whipped into peculiar shapes by powerful stellar winds. Blue-colored areas are formed of dust reflecting starlight. Red areas are glowing from emission caused by the ionization of hydrogen gas by starlight.

The Fox Fur Nebula is part of a much larger complex known as The Christmas Tree Cluster.

I don't see a fox, do you?

Mars, BITCH!

I am desperately trying to find some good news today. And here's some:

Mars Rover Opportunity is still alive on Mars, marking its fourth operational year on the planet last friday. It's truly astonishing.

January 30, 2008—Continuing to defy the odds, the Mars rover Opportunity marked its fourth operational year on the Martian surface last Friday.

The rover landed on Mars on January 25, 2004, and was meant to carry out a 90-day mission. Despite its age and what could have been a crippling dust storm last summer, the probe continues to send back valuable data almost 1,500 days later.

Panoramic images released by NASA last week show the so-called Lyell section of a band of light-colored rock that rings the interior of the red planet's massive Victoria Crater.

The band, which sits about 20 feet (6 meters) inside the rim, is believed to be an exposed layer of the Martian surface as it existed millions of years ago, before the impact that formed the crater.

The new view combines several images taken from inside the crater between October and December 2007. During this three-month stretch, the rover's panoramic camera sampled scenes in a variety of wavelengths of light.

Combining shots taken in different wavelengths created approximate true-color (bottom) and false-color (top) versions, which allow astronomers to see subtle features and color variations.

UR tuesday gurlz kittehs

The were both sulking when I left this morning. For what it's worth, I wish I could work from home too.

Maddie has a new routine- when I get home in the evening, I always see her little haid in the window of my bedroom, which overlooks the parking lot. As soon as I get out of the car she immediately runs to the front window to wait for me to come up the walk so she can greet me at the door.

It's nice to be missed.
