Went to a Bob Dylan concert last night. The tickets (good seats!) were a present of some kind (birthday?) to J from his brother. It was enjoyable enough, even though you'd think his sound engineers could do a better job of making his singing comprehensible. And my main complaint is that he wasn't very interactive with the audience-- no "Hello, thanks for coming out tonight" or "This is a song about..." or anything. The playing was enthusiastic enough, so I won't say that he was phoning it in, but....

Other than that, I bought a large cutting mat for 25% off! Not as large as I'd wanted, really, but it'll do. We moved the bookcase upstairs, and moved the drafting table into the study, the first thing we've done to actually move my studio (and clear space for the incipient human). Very exciting.

Gotta go to the vet this morning-- yesterday I was noticing the Ballyhoo was really filling out in the face, even though he hasn't been eating that much more than usual. Then I noticed that it was only on one side of his face. He looks like John McCain. Obviously, this is a cause for concern (though happily, he himself doesn't seem to be concerned-- it doesn't seem to bother him at all). So, hmm. Wish us luck.
