Let's see, what's going on around here? Well, according to someone pitching to Blackbird, it's National Licorice Day. Google says it's the 50th anniversary of space flight.
It's also National Library Worker's Day, and of course my library is making a fuss. There are two parties scheduled so that no matter when your work day starts or ends you can make it to one of them. I was stopped on my way in from lunch by the receptionist and told I should "hurry up and get some cake." My response surprised even me: "It's just cake." Did I say that? And it appears I meant it, because I'm still on my lunch break (the tail end of it), sitting at my desk not eating cake.
Also? Sophie has worms. You know how cats are always sticking their bums in your face? She did that this morning, and I saw a worm. Uh-oh. How the heck did she get worms? She doesn't have fleas (I don't think she does. I never see any), she doesn't go outside, I've never fed her raw or undercooked meat, and I have no other pets that she could have gotten them from. I wonder if a flea hitched a ride into the house on my shoes or socks or something.
So tomorrow afternoon we go to the vet. Huzzah.
