The cats, for once working together instead of against each other, woke me up at 6am. This after I could not fall asleep until 2. Today will be hard. I locked them out of the room but then they just fought loudly on the other side of the door. I might have salvaged a nap had I just gone downstairs and fed their greedy asses.

Watched a whole mess of Clean Sweep with zarobi and her mom last night, after a refreshing Cold Stone ice cream break. It was absolutely inspiring. I have a yard sale pile starting already. When I got home I took some time to burn some DVDs for trading (the Lamb footage, etc) and organize my office shelves. I need a smaller monitor and a new desk. I relish in these mundane details, and very small things give me great joy.

I'm trying to figure out what you call this certain kind of shirt/blouse thing. It has like, a kind of mandarin collar and uses frogs to fasten, kind of asymmetrically, and they had them at the zen center. And it looked to be made of linen. I feel like an idiot for not knowing how to describe this.

What you need is not a smaller monitor -- what you need is a FLATSCREEN. yeah. :)

yup, that's very much what i meant. smaller, as in taking up less space for the same functionality. :)

I'm thinking your shirt is refered to as a Tunic. =)

Alas, when I search for a tunic, the shirt I speak of does not appear. It would be knid of like a kimono shirt but not silky and I can't remember if it opens all the way up or just had a flap at the top... maybe there just isn't a name for it.

hey, according to vogue patterns, you are totally right.

Try searching ebay under "Chinese work shirt" "Women's Chinese Blouse" "Chinese noblemen's shirt" and "Chinese tunic.

I caught my first episode of Clean Sweep the other week, when Breezy went to Friday night game for the first time in aeons. I'm hooked! Do you have these episodes on tape?
