Falling to pieces, 100 of them

mister_biv took a challenge to post 100 facts about himself, and I feel a bit lemmingesque tonight, so here I go.

100 facts you may or may not know (or care) about me

1. Today is my dear kitten Monette's birthday
2. He is one year old
3. If my digital camera had shipped on time (damn Gazma.com), I would be posting pictures of him in a birthday hat
4. I will probably make him wear a birthday hat for photo op whenever the camera does decide to show up.
5. I have recently adopted two cats from the shelter, so he will have friends to play with (Sterling went home)
6. Owning three cats makes me feel like a spinster in training
7. Which kind of makes sense, since I keep falling in love with straight boys

9. and for men with red hair.
10. I'm currently listening to a Dar Williams song, who is my current musical obsession
11. Unfortunately, all of my Dar cds were stolen out of my car on Wednesday, with about $300 in other cds (those case logic things hold a lot of discs)

How did you manage to quit the nailbiting thing? I'm going into behavior analysis and i still havent found anything punishable enough for me to stop. any suggestions?

Sorry we've yet to really hang out this summer. If theres ever a time you feel incredibly bored and want to do something just give me a call. Hopefully I'll be around a bit more often.
