It’s coming any day now. In the meantime you can rank the reasons you love the ATW peeps.
You’d better be right. In terms of love, I love you all equally, except I love the ****ing thread originators just a tiny bit less than everyone else.
The reasons I love you all?
Sonnet 43 should work here, no ranking necessary. (Does Matt read Shakespeare?)
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
As much as I love having them around, I’m looking forward to the day when 2 of the kittens go to their new homes and wee may have time to do something other than being (mostly) willing cat-slaves. This will be in mid-July or so.
Current cat status: Mom and 3 kittens in basement, injured/recovering 4th kitten in upstairs bathroom, our own 3 cats uneasily wedged into the remaining space (mostly the main floor of the house).
