Kitties are doing what kitties do: lots of sleeping. Pokey and Habibi:
My sweetie and I went to the Louvre on 26th December. What a mistake. It was incredibly crowded - as bad as any day in the summertime, possibly worse. It was even crowded over in the Oriental Antiquities area, which is usually pretty quiet except for Egypt.
Here are some pics from a previous visit to Levantine antiquities. From the 9th century B.C. in what is now Syria:
Sweetie and I watched Ratatouille about the rat in Paris who loves to cook. I wanted to love it. Paris looks beautiful (and doggy-doo free) and I LOVED the cooking scenes in the kitchen, but the story petered out at the end. The Incredibles was superior. Anyway, I give it 4 out of 5 stars - definitely fun to watch.
We also watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which is always a hoot. I still have huge chunks of the dialogue memorized from repeated viewings while in high school.
The weather is horrible and overcast. I'm using a light visor to fight against my SAD tendencies, but don't think it's really working. When the sun is out, I'm happy and energetic and when it's not all I want to do is sleep on the couch. It's like the sun is my on/off switch. sigh.
