After much prodding

Came the blog post.

Although I think Mike's posts are funnier, here's an attempt to bring you up to speed. Where to start?

Well the first bit of news is that we got a cat. This isn't your basic run of the mill crazy hissing cat. Born in Austria (no joke) this cat came with a pedigree chart and the most beautiful coat I have ever seen. He has the sweetest temperament and he will grow to be around 22 pounds. He is only 9 months old and already 14.5. I know most of you aren't cat people, but Sebastian is a special one that might just change your mind. He is a pure-bred Maine Coon and he acts more like a dog than a cat. We have had so much fun with him the past couple of months.

I would be lying if I didn't tell you that I am slightly obsessed with this cat. His new trick is to chase a laser pointer dot around the whole apartment. It is quite hysterical.

Our iPhones are full of cat pictures. I guess you really could call this parent training, just on a much smaller scale.

Second bit of news is that I passed the California bar. It was such a relief and to celebrate we went to an asian fusion restaurant with my mom and gary in Redwood City and then off to Wolverine, which we liked, but not as much as Star Trek.

Third bit of news is that I have a real grown up job. I have a lot of Office Space moments and I sometimes have to eat cookies to keep me sane. It's a hard transition as I knew it would be, but I do get to do interesting things and they aren't working me to hard with the slow economy which is nice so I can ease in to it.

Fourth bit of news is that Mike and I need to take more pictures of other things besides our cat. I was asking Mike if we had any other pictures of things we've done...the answer is no, not really. So here are some oldies but goodies.

That's all for now...more to come. And we'll be better, I promise.

You named your cat Sebastian. I have always loved that name. It is still at the top of my list for future male offspring.

That animal is HUGE and I totally want to squeeze it.

Wowza! That is one BIG cat! But he is cute and I'm glad you're in love.

LOVE the update. You need to post more fun pictures all the time! (The Crate & Barrel pic cracks me up. I keep looking at it.)
