I went to see a friend’s new baby today. I found it very interesting that her baby weighed less than my cat. Yes, it’s true! She said the baby was about 11 pounds, and my cat is approximately 13 pounds. BOOM.
Did I ever tell you all that one of my best friends is pregnant? Laura (of Laura and Jon) is due in April. They find out what the baby will be next week. I’m hoping for a herm! (Just kidding. I’m hoping it’s a giraffe, or perhaps a kitten.) If you are obsessed with hermaphrodites, like me and my sister Leslie are, you should be sure to read Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. It’s wonderful!
(The thing that’s awesome about "herm" is that it is both short for hermaphrodite and a combination of him and her. Just delightful all around.)
(PSA: Do not do a google image search for hermaphrodite cat, unless you are prepared for the results. Sign that I am tired. I was not prepared.)
Unrelated: Chris and I just did a count on our wedding guest list and realized we may end up SHORT of our original estimate. I guess we’ll just have to see. I guess people don’t really like us after all.
30 days of Thanksgiving: I’m thankful for my wonderful friends and family who are able to attend my wedding!
