You've Heard the Phrase ..

... "It's like herding cats"? Well, these are herding cats. And they're not the direct object in that sentence. In this video, it's Bear doing the work; Jasper is just looking unamused.

Gremlins TP'd My House!

I heard a lot of commotion last night while I was in bed. Too lazy to check on the critters. This greeted me this a.m.

Wouldn't it be funny if I didn't have any pets and this kind of thing still occurred?

BTW, beneath all of the tissue is a white cat toy mouse. Do you think he had anything to do with it? Or was he just taking cover?

I guess I'll never know.

Time to buy some more toilet tissue. And drop these kittens off at the pound ...

Outlook: Priceless.

This Belly Ain't Gonna Scratch Itself

This is what I get to wake up to: Lulu! My own version of Mr. Winkle. Should I make a Web site and sell T-shirts etc.? Catchy slogans could include: "I eat cat poo -- do you?" and "This belly ain't gonna scratch itself!"

In other news:

* I have fallen in love with oatmeal.
* I have decided that I will not stop for red lights in my dreams.
* Last night I dreamed about pizzelles and am now determined to find a pizzelle iron.
* Am wondering: How does Santa get UP the chimney?

SF, You Make Me Feel Like I'm Living a Teenage Dream

Wednesday morning I had the opportunity to interview an inspiring woman, Kim Kaselionis, CEO of Circle Bank in Novato. (Check out the story.)

The day was gorgeous -- perfect convertible weather.

The Golden Gate Bridge is always stunning, but even more so when it's clear and crisp. And even more so when you're looking straight up at the towers as you whiz over it with the top down.

Not for the first time, I was struck by the absolutely heavenly beauty of my home, and how lucky I am to be in the position of having a utilitarian use for such a grand icon, simply in the course of doing business.

On the way back to San Francisco, I tried to capture the glory of the day with the video function of my new iPhone. As it happens, one of my favorite songs was on the radio -- Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. You can't see much of me, but that's how I wanted it: The stars here are the blue sky with cotton-ball clouds and the suspension wonder that make you feel like "we'll be young forever ..."
