This and That

The cat is better, though she hates me because I've been giving her medication for the last week.

The next month of politics will be stupid as all the candidates try to project genial confidence while their campaigns engage in trench warfare. It hasn't changed that we have one person running for president (Hillary Clinton), six people running against Hillary (Obama, Edwards, McCain, Guiliani, Romney, Huckabee), and three people running for VP (Biden, Dodd and Richardson). Dennis Kucinich is running for public scold and Ron Paul has village crank sewn up. I've said before and I'll say again, this campaign is for the Democrats to lose. If they damage their candidates too much in the primaries, they risk getting taken out by the right in the general. The best thing to hope for now is a Romney or Huckabee victory on the Republican side.

On the house side of things, the tile we wanted for the bathroom and kitchen has been delayed for 3-4 weeks on shipment, and the tile installer says our patterns are complex enough that it will take 3-4 weeks to install, so we won't get into the house until late January or early February. A disappointment, yes, but not wholly unexpected.
