Thanks. I've spent the majority of the morning in bed, with the dog curled up next to me. That shit's better than chicken soup. I think I'll name the afternoon the same way.

SPEAKING OF DOGS AND GODZILLA. I wanna name my next dog "Dog." Short for "Dogzilla." It's gonna be something small, but still manly, tobe all deceptive about the name. "My dog is named 'Dog.' It's short for 'Dogzilla.' He's a total beast . . . Mastiff? No. He's much more fierce than a Mastiff. He's some kind of corgi/yorkie/beagle mix. A total beast."

I'm a bit sick myself. I seem to be on the recovery side but still sick. My cat kept an eye on me last night. He's a good boy, even if it means he's in the way when I'm trying to get comfortable.

My last two cats have been named for scientists. I still feel a little bad that my girl cat is named for a boy scientist. I feel like there's a karmic need to balance that in the future. I'm thinking "Poppy," the nickname of Frances Northcutt, an Apollo-era engineer and first woman in an operational role in NASA's control center.

Straying a bit of the topic of Godzilla at this point.

Good sir, straying off topic is half the fun of rambles.

Just don't name your cat something lame, like "Duchess" or "Mothball."

I tend to name pets after television or movie characters. Currently have a cat named Radar and two rats named Frasier and Niles.
