she's having kittens!

so it kinda happened like that kids book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, only this time it was If You Feed a Stray Cat, She Will Birth Kittens On Your Basement Floor and the SPCA Will Not Take Them... and you will be forced to foster kittens for 2 months
but damn they are cute!

I realize these pictures may be graphic but trust me I kept the more colorful ones to myself.

why do I still love staying up late / avoid going to bed? After a full day of work, a 3.5 m trail run, and bookclub I'm still wide awake staring at this computer.

...I'm definitely going to pay for this in morning....

set you a challenge

I really like this wine lately, Parallele 45, an affordable (~$10) Cote du Rhone. It's a bit soft and gentle, not like my usual rough reds. It takes a chill well and pairs nicely with most meals. It just so happens to be the second wine I've really enjoyed with this little importer band on it...

the first was an amazing (big!) Douro from Churchill Estates, it was the first time I tried Douro, a Portugese wine, and I instantly loved it. The nice girl at Bin 604, a fancy pants wine store that I am undoubtedly going to return to, was nice enough to give me a rundown on the Douro, she said its what happens when port wine grapes don't get made into port. (which I really don't care for, so yay for me) to find out more about this exotic wine look here ""

So I challenge you to find a wine at your local booze shop from Wildman and Sons as the importer,
and see if you like it...
