I finished reading The Stranger, by Albert Camus. I didn't like the story at all, even if the Cure did write a song about it (Killing an Arab). I much preferred Charlotte Sometimes (as a book that the Cure made a song of). The character in The Stranger was pathetic, and yet I could relate to how he felt, which is part of the reason I disliked the book. I have done many stupid things in my life, and I do not have any logical reasons for some of them. In my defense, most of them were while I was an adolescent. The fact that he finally appreciates life after it is too late is so true.
Skittles actually curled up in bed with me the other morning, for a whole three minutes! He is NOT a lap cat or a bed cat, so this was huge. He has his name for a very good reason, and it's very hard for him to stay on something that has a human also. If you watch TV while sitting on the couch, he will sit on a different cushion, but never the same one as you. So I was very happy. I am a total cat person. I like dogs on an individual basis, but I love cats.
