Roommate Jim and I had a talk about the cats and what the future may hold. Hey, he lives here too, so he deserves a say.

He's observed the cats a few times while I was gone, and says that the bat-bat-bat and chase-chase-chase are playing, not fighting. This is a relief to me. He also agrees about Laila staying till September.

Jim says Solange has allowed Laila into her "den", which is a huge concession. If they weren't going to get along, we'd've known by now.

So the news is good. Let's hope it stays good.


When I was a lad, there was a Saturday morning TV show called The Monster Squad. An aspiring criminologist named Walt takes a job at a wax museum during the night shift and builds a crime computer in a sarcophagus. The computer's "oscillating vibrations" bring to life the wax statues of the famous movie monsters: Dracula, the Werewolf, and Frankenstein. The monsters, wanting to make up for "their past misbehaving", join forces with Walt to fight crime.

There's an episode on YouTube that shows just how silly the dialogue was:

Walt: Here it is, you guys. Those two half-breed criminals, Half-Wit and Half-Nelson - they're half-brothers, ya know - they broke out of a halfway house at half past six and got away in a half-track.

Dracula: Is that the whole story?

Walt: That isn't the half of it.

Walt was played by a pre-Love Boat Fred Grandy in a truly ridiculous outfit: a Moe Howard haircut, a mustard-yellow Letterman's sweater, and a black bow tie with white polka dots.

Don't believe me? Here's the cover art for the DVD set. YES, still no Ellery Queen.

I'll pick this one up. It's my kind of silliness.


The finale of Hell's Kitchen turned out to be a two-parter.

Danny vs Paula - resolved next week.


After getting soundly beaten by Toronto on Wednesday, the Angels came back to win last night.

Chone Figgins got robbed of a home run when his ball hit the top edge of the padding in right field. The ball had just enough spin that it bounced back onto the field. He had to settle for a double. Figgins just shook his head and laughed.

Well, that's the way the ball bounces.

Oh, c'mon - you were thinking it, too.


Okay, I have a few errands to run and stuff to do.

Be seeing you.
