hamsters are cute! cats can be mean.

Last night, Tatsuko put a big hole in my foot. She hates when the neighbor cat comes by, so she was freaking out when he came up to the open back door (screen only; it was hot). When I went to the back door to close it and scare of the boy-cat, Tatsuko swung around and clawed me on the bottom of the foot, so now it hurts to walk. *sigh*

On the other hand, Chloe is SO CUTE! Had folks over for gaming yesterday and ordered cheep Chinese delivery, and I saved a little broccoli and carrot. She loves these so much that she doesn't even stuff them in her cheeks - the way she does with everything else - but instead gobbles 'em up right away. So CUTE!


accent quiz

Damn you, gmskarka! Had to take this quiz:
What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

North Central. This is what everyone calls a "Minnesota accent." If you saw "Fargo" or "Drop Dead Gorgeous" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Some Americans may mistake you for a Canadian.

Northern. Whether you have the world famous Inland North accent of the Great Lakes area, or the radio-friendly sound of upstate NY and western New England, your accent is what used to set the standard for American English pronunciation (not much anymore now that the Inland North sounds like it does).

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?
