First - Sweater Quest: Chapter 3 is now available in podcast form here. In the first ten minutes, you will hear a loud crash. The source of the crash is one orange cat who managed to drag a manila envelope full of yarn off of my printer and onto the floor, taking with him everything else on that side of the desk, because he is the personification of grace.

Second - today marks the first day of my 40s. So far, it has been pretty good. It started with a brisk 2.5 mile run (yes, run! I'm stunned, too) in which I expended a lot of energy to stay in one place. Then some errands. Then the work I absolutely had to get done today. Then a pedicure, where I had my toenails painted a lovely spring green, in the hopes that it might be spring soon. Now my plan is to ignore all of the stuff that I ought to do - because I am now 40 and feel it is my right - and will go knit and watch both America's Next Top Model and Bethenny Ever After. Real reality can wait until tomorrow.
