Saturday Afternoon, The Librarian and I went to see kr8vkat, Steinway and their new baby, C (well, he just turned 11 weeks old, so he’s not totally new). It was supposedly Fussy Time, but C was asleep when we arrived. The Librarian hadn’t seen their new house, so I tagged along on the tour, admired the improvements made since I was last there, and we all had a long, rambling conversation about a bunch of stuff (a lot of what we talked about was C, but that’s pretty common when someone has a new baby). Every time I visit with kr8vkat and Steinway, I wonder why I don’t do it more often**.
Afterward, The Librarian and I went to the new Thai restaurant in “downtown” Milwaukie. The food was quite tasty, and the company excellent (every time I visit with The Librarian, I wonder why I don’t do it more often***). We talked about many things; comics and bears and her upcoming Adventure At Sea. The Librarian wrapped up the evening with a story about her home being Invaded By a Rat that had such a perfect mix of danger, excitement, squickiness and Practical How-To Advice, there was no way I could top it without blatantly making something up****. It was a splendid conclusion to a very social day.

** Then I remember that they were newlyweds, then bought a new house, then had a baby, and that makes for a pretty full schedule.
*** I have no good reason for why I don't.
**** Not that I have a problem with that.
