Micro has kind of a thing about food.

We don't know exactly what his kittenhood was like, but it resulted in a cat who is a teeny tiny bit obsessive about food.

He does the scarf-and-barf, is what I'm saying. We've tried a number of things to slow down his eating, with varying degrees of success. One of the things that has seemed to work pretty well is mixing his wet food with water to thin it down and make it harder to vacuum great big chunks down.

Last night, I found out that watering the wet food down makes it easier for your cat to projectile vomit it all over your foot. Peter heroically stepped in to clean up my flip-flop and the floor while I hopped off to wash my foot, but it did end the night on a bit of a rough note.

Today, upon leaving work, the Prius wouldn't start. It went into this weird zombie state where the power button indicator light would come on and change colors, and the open door alarm would go off, but it wouldn't actually start... and neither could I convince it that it was turned off so that it would stop screaming at me when I opened the door. Delightful, I tell you.

It turns out that this is the Prius's way of letting you know that the 12v battery is dead and you need a jump. If it had been me, I might have picked something a little clearer, like a Ouija board.

Anyway, Peter got to me 3 minutes before AAA and actually had jumper cables in his car, so he got to rescue me again. It was only 8:30 by the time we both got home. On the bright side, I had plenty of time to work on cleaning the junk out of my car?

It's been a hell of a week so far, folks, and it's not over yet. I don't know what the universe has in store for tomorrow, but I ca't say I'm looking forward to it with any degree of happy anticipation...
