As we waited, we wondered how it was possible that they consistently
have a wait of at least an hour on weeknights and multiple hours on the
weekend. The answer is that it takes a very long time to eat all that
damn food, and then when you are done, you do not want to move ever
again, so you don't. I think I have finally recovered, though I do
retain a certain feeling that I should spend the next month and a half
eating nothing but steamed vegetables to redress the imbalance.

We are trying not to add too many things to the house at the moment, even anticipatory baby things, since it seems inevitable that every room will fill up with more clutter than we ever imagined soon enough. But these "sheepskin" rugs -- actually thick sheared wool on a cotton backing, no sheep-skinning required -- might merit an exception. They are made by Lina Rinnell and sold at Beklina, a pairing also responsible for my very favorite belt, which I fondly look forward to wearing again someday.
And, finally, QUERY: Why is it that the cat always wants to sit on the greatest number of object layers available? If there is a thing on top of a given surface, he can be guaranteed to sit on the thing, not the surface. Note that not only is he sitting on the paper rather than any other bit of the table, he is specifically sitting on the spot where the pieces of paper overlap. Is this strategy adaptive in some way? Do other, non-domesticated cats have the same habit?
