808 Well! The first update to include photos this month, because I got my camera back yesterday, and figured out how to get it mounted in Linux all by myself. It took me two hours, but I got it. I was so proud of myself. I even called up Larry to geek at him. He was like “Uh.. okay Heather… ” It was pretty funny to hear, because I’m sure he could have done the same thing in about 2 seconds.

Anyway, these past few days have been an adventure. I dyed my hair red, as you can see from the photo. A bit more red than I am used to, but I like it. In a few more shampoos it’ll look a bit more natural, I hope. Megan’s walking better, so we went to walk around in the local park, which has forests and a river in it. We wandered around in the forests and such for good 1.5 hours or so. The pictures we got were all with her camera, so I had to wait on her to e-mail them to me.

9146 Yesterday, I had to drive into Atlanta to get my car emissions tested (I passed! yay!), then drive the emissions report over to my dad’s office, just outside the perimeter. He and John and I went to the mall to get dinner and go birthday shopping, but I didn’t find anything I wanted there. All of the clothes look the same. It’s all that stuff that looks like it’s been dragged in the mud before sale. It’s awful… Why the hell would I want to but dirty clothes? So then we went to CompUSA to look, but nothing there. Finally over to PetSmart, where I found a kitty tower for Morla. While we’re there, it starts to pour. The tower does not fit in dad’s car, so it has to hang out the back of his trunk (in the rain) for the drive back to his office. Then we park under some wonderfully unsheilding trees to make the switch to the backseat of MY car. The thing just barely fits in the backseat. By this time we’re all totally soaked and laughing our butts off. John and I say goodbye to dad and head back up. It was a lot of fun. I laughed most of the way back up about the three of us standing in the rain, wrestling the cat tower into the car. Morla loves the thing, and Taj hasn’t braved her swats to get very close to it. It’s HER tower.
