David Longdon of the Seattle cycling blog Velocity has run a contest for the last two months for the “Most Visible Night Cyclist”, and I won for December! I’m sure it’s the star Christmas lights that pushed me over the top.

Thanks, David!

Cat with his chin resting on his owner's hand

two cats stacked on top of a CRT

This picture is from back when Alice and Theo were only about a year old. Now there are no CRT monitors left in the house (there’re a couple on the bikeport waiting to go to recycling, but none in the house).

More evidence that Alice will sacrifice propriety if it comes into conflict with other priorities like getting in the sweet spot for the maximum warmth from the furnace vent.

Egg head

Cat lying in an egg carton

You know how a few weeks ago I said that Alice has a highly developed sense of propriety? Well, except when she doesn’t.

And lest you think that she was just lying there like that, see below for a little animation of the photo shoot this was an outtake from.
