First Time for Everything


After having a roommate, coworkers, and a couple cousins that are blogger-proud; I've decided to give it a go.

This is me and Akyla (uh-KOO-la) playing with my new camera phone. I expect there'll be many such photos to follow.

Akyla adopted me about 4 years ago when I lived in Siberia. She walked right into my dorm room and hid beneath my bed withought my noticing, as I watched Jaws dubbed in Russian. "Akyla, akyla" (shark, shark) cried my tv set! With each cry came a soft reply from under my bed... "mew, mew." First thinking my tiny tv and its aluminum rabbit ears had amazingly achieved stereo sound; I was impressed. Until, that is, I realized I could not remember any cats being in the movie Jaws. So, I followed the "mews" until they led me to a filthy, scrawny, little kitten. And she's been with me ever since.
