The weather has gone from temperatures in the 80s on Saturday to freezing rain today. That's Texas for you. I'm doing my best to avoid all of it. The warmer weather brought mysterious allergens; the cold brings . . . cold. I'll just stay inside, thank you.
Plus, I have no real reason to go anywhere this week. Everyone has gone away. Cory's in Lubbock; Zachary's on the west coast (San Francisco today and Portland later in the week); Kim's gone back to Indiana; Kristi's either traveling for work (maybe New York today?) or at home with her husband. That just leaves me and the kitties.
I am a teacher, grad student, writer, voracious reader, photographer, singer, feminist, and thriftstore fashionista. In no particular order.
I am Squirlaraptor. This name was originally created for my kitty to reflect her squirrel-like fur and her raptor attack skills and has recently been adopted by me to reflect my own curious nature and tendency to hoard as well as my (sometime) fierceness and my love of the hunt (at least, in terms of shopping and research--not so much in terms of killing and maiming, vegetarian that I am).
