Of course, there are lots of things I would like to think, and reality has a nasty habit of not accomodating me.


Thinking is over rated.

Kitty's gone!!!


Yea, I decided to go back to my old avatar. It's more "me" than anything else I've seen, even though people keep thinking I'm a girl when they see it.

Did you find kitty on-line because I'd like to keep a copy of it?


Yea, but I could never find it again. I re-uploaded it here.

Thank you. I've saved a copy of kitty.

You may want to do what Furin did and put something in your sig to let people know you're XY and not XX. I know, based on your pre-kitty avatar, that I thought you were XX until Sei asked you what your gender was.

It's kinda funny. About 1995 a friend gave me his Futon mattress--American Futon. He didn't have the frame so I didn't get one. It is much denser and thinner than the usual futon mattress and uses string instead of buttons to keep the filler in position. I've been using it for the last 10 years pretty much exclusively. I stuffed it into my Sentra when I came from California and I've been using it in every place I've lived in Virginia.

Recently, a friend sold me his futon frame and I tried it out. It wasn't comfortable at all. I was able to buy some very dense cardboard to put over the side slats but I still had this double-bar going down the center with 2 alignment braces that stuck up and dug into my ribs. So when we moved the other week I tossed the frame in the trash and went back to plain futon mattress on floor even if my friends criticize me for it. It's comfortable, it's cheap and much more portable. Which is pretty important since I'm a minimalist.

I make my bed by folding it in half and walking away.

My mother was (is) horrified at the idea of sleeping on the floor. I've been doing it so long now that it would feel odd to me to sleep in a bed.

And when you consider the Japanese love of alcohol, the on-the-floor futon is a perfectly sensible choice. After all....when was the last time you heard of someone hurting themselves by rolling out of a futon and falling onto the floor while drunk?
Never underestimate my capacity for pettiness.
