RIP Britt Kitty

July 2, 1992-July 16, 2007

Best Cat Ever. Britt was awesome. She was a total bad-ass: she could catch a hummingbird mid-air, corner and scare the hell out of a raccoon twice her size, and scale a 6'+ wall with no problem. Then she'd come in and lay on your lap with her soft, buttery belly exposed. Or she'd sit on your lap facing you and stretch her paw up toward your face like she just loved you so much, she just had to pet you. She was awesome.

My brother Bill has kept her for the past few years and they got along famously. I know he'll miss her just as much as I will. He had to put her down today due to renal failure. And while I'm sad she's gone, I know he did the right thing.


Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Consumer Reports just rated them #1 cookie, so of course, we had to try them.
Consumer Reports was, as usual, correct. They are great. Chewy, chocolatey, and buttery. And the best part is that they're already pre-shaped so you can bake as many (or as few) as you want. You could probably pop 1 or 2 in a toaster oven even, if the urge struck.

Diptyque Baies Room Spray

This room spray totally changes the way I feel about home fragrance. I'm not a fan of overpowering fragrances in a home, but this room spray is so wonderful.

Low Tide Cardigan

Despite the high shipping price from Anthropologie ($11?!?!?) and the fact that the crochet trim almost completely came off even in the light cycle in the wash, I still love this cardigan. The lime green color is perfect for summer.
