Last night during evening lecture I had my laptop and was taking notes with little Ace [temporary name]. (Side note: yes, 'taking notes' also means 'perusing Facebook', 'chatting' and 'watching birds'. I still got two pages of notes out of it and didn't miss anything - yay touch typing.)

I listened to the birds chattering away; their voices were the perfect background to a lecture about pollination: birds and the bees.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw two cats at the pool. I saw some action. I heard some yowls and kicking.

My first thought was "Thank goodness McGonagall came along to check in on me and keep me sane, poor tomcat who doesn't know she's a cat of another colour." My second thought was "I wonder if Hooch is around." My third thought was "No, I bet Grubbly-Plank and Sprout would be around inspecting plants and animals...but who's to say McHooch wouldn't come along?"

Only my fourth thought was at all sensible:

I think, perhaps, the cats were paying more attention to the lecture than was strictly required; goodness knows they offered more of their ears than the students did.

That was the day my lecturer was upstaged by two shagging cats.

Day off?
Aside from the shagging cats, how was your day off in Spain?!

Did you swim in the ocean? Did you, I mean YOU!, mean it when you said you enjoyed the sun?!

Re: P.S.
I don't expect sensible commentary from you. Doubt anyone that reads your posts does either : )

Re: P.S.
And isn't that a relief!

Re: Day off?
I did enjoy the day off and the sun. (: I think I did a lot of sleeping and smiling. I don't really remember, at this point; it seems so far away!

Frankly, I find cat shagging a disappointment. Neither of them seem to enjoy it. I'm quite sure that there is a lesson there, but I can't seem to grasp it.

In any case, I hope the trip brings something to you.

I'm quite sure that there is a lesson there, Stick to purring, perhaps?

All is fun and games until you actually get to the games?

Laughter. The few bouts I've seen, there seemed a hearty portion of enjoyment - although in the end the females always seemed a bit 'well it's done now, why are you still here?' Leads to much stalking by the males.

The trip has brought much to me. (:
