many things make a post, short and late edition

up with figs, let the sleeping cat lie

Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.



Dear Lisa, 

While you have accurately conveyed what it is like to sleep in the same bed as our cat McGregor, you did leave out one of his favorite slumber poses. On really cold nights, he clamps himself on to the back of my skull like the face-hugging tentacled beast from Aliens. And I wonder why I wake up feeling so drained.
Sleepily yours,
- A

Mine has to either sleep between the 2 pillows in the center of the bed so he can touch both of us at once, OR he is liking my eyeball or nose to see if i am awake yet.

What McGregor needs is a more attractive alternative to the back of your skull:

Of course I may steal it from him and stick it in my bed the next time I visit during the winter. Or maybe I should just pack my electric blanket. Or would airport security have a problem with that?
