Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
El gato es en mi garaje. El todavia esta muerta.
ANIMAL CONTROL DOESN'T PICK UP DEAD ANIMALS IF THEY'RE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. If I had thrown poor el gato in the street, then they would have picked him up. I'd call and say, There's a dead cat in the street. They'd send a truck to get him.
I called a private company that picks up dead animals. It's $229 for a service call, and this cat isn't even my fricking cat!
I called my vet's office. The person who answered the phone told me what to do, "unofficially". This problem is now a clandestine operation called El Gato, and that's all I have to say about that. I just hope he hasn't decomposed too much. It's not chilly here anymore.
My birthday was on Sunday, and it sucked. Willy Dunne Wooters was on call and couldn't come over. It took about a million hints before he told me happy birthday and he loves me.
He officially went off on call this morning at 7. He can come over tonight to comfort me.
I received an invitation to my nephew's wedding. I have an ethical concern about attending. The invitation says "Please RSVP". Good heavens! That's redundant! That is so redundant. I don't know if I can go. I asked The Hurricane how she feels about it. I'll let you know what we decide.
Hey! I just thought of something for which I can feel grateful. Amanda Ax emailed me to say she's really busy because so many of you visited her very cool etsy shop, Laylas Trinkets. Way to shop, people! Remember: my readers can get 20% off with the code word JUNEBUG.
Amanda also told me she makes custom jewelry. I have a charm bracelet that broke (I didn't like the bracelet anyway -- just the charms) so I'm going to send her the charms and she'll put them on a bracelet she'll make for me that matches the necklace and earrings I won in her husband Brandon's giveaway. And just so you know, I am not receiving any remuneration from Amanda for promoting her stuff, which includes original artwork, some of which Favorite Young Man might receive for his birthday next month.

Well, look at that. I didn't think I could feel grateful today, but I do!
Infinities of love,
