I think I'm coming down with a cold. I have drunk ( drank? ) roughly a gallon of tea, have my Chelsea scarf on, and have had a heating pad called Wisota on my chest on and off this afternoon. And I am on the first day of my period. Which is all very well, and boring, so I shall switch my narrative to last night.

Kismet proved that he was A Mighty Hunter, and caught his second mouse. He was playing with it like it was his laser pointer mousie. I think Kismet and Wisota had chased it upstairs much earlier in the day, has they tore out of the basement and were very Interested in the hassock. I pulled it over to make sure that there wasn't something under it. I guess the mouse climbed up?

But there was no Circle of Life shenanigans. I pulled off Kismet, and the mouse fled into the hall closet while I was getting out the tupperwere container. I cleared out some of the shoes, and almost caught it but it scurried somewhere else. So I emptied the entire closet, treed the mouse up onto the baseboard in the corner, and caught the blasted thing and brought it outside and released it.

We've had a live-trap in the basement for almost two weeks, but I guess the mouse did not care for peanut butter. The trap is staying down there just in case the mice ( as Mr. Mighty Hunter had cornered another a few weeks ago ) had friends. But we only found two mice nests in the carpet pile, so we live in hope.

Kismet was a little put out for a bit, because I stole his toy, but he's forgiven me and he's stretched out snoring next to me on the couch.

So, I downloaded two Wodehouse complations from Waterstones. I have a Kindle. It has been a COMPLETE NIGHTMARE to get my book onto my reader. So far I have:

  • Installed Python 2.6.4

  • Installed Python 2.6

  • Unintallled Python 2.6

  • Swear at computer

  • Realize that I did not uninstall 2.6.4

  • Reinstall Python 2.6

  • Fail to install Python as my admin account is not being recognized as an admin account x 4

  • Run installer from command line

  • Install CryptoPython

  • Create .pyw files

  • Try to associate .pyw files though right click

  • Try to associate .pyw files though command line

  • Reboot Computer

  • Try to associate .pyw files though right click

  • Try to associate .pyw files though command line

  • Find Out that you MUST install Python for all users with Vista 64 bit, or Python won't work.

  • Cry.

  • </ul
