You knew at some point I’d have to do it, didn’t you?

 

Now on to your news fix. Our first tidbit will make some people out there very happy. Me? I just keep thinking about what it must smell like. That’s a lot of cats.

Whoops! Can you imagine the embarrassment? If he has a wife, she is probably mortified. If not, I get it.

And in cross-my-fingers science news, a potential breakthrough in AIDS research. Maybe. Hopefully!

Take a minute to join me in hoping. And to all of those who have battled HIV/AIDS, or are living with loved ones who do, I hope it happens soon.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    Cat island looks impressive and sounds like a great premise to a horror novel. I have one cat who bosses me around all day and I’m a little scared of him.

      Ooh…I never thought of the horror possibilities. 🙂 Cats are pretty bossy. I bet yours does an excellent job of ordering and lounging right when you’re trying to write, doesn’t she/he?

    I love the cat island! They all look so shiny and well-fed and happy. That anyone can tell that guy’s naked is beyond me. The HIV news is great. And now I know what retrovirus means. Have a great weekend, Kim!

      Well fed, yes. But I’m with spunkonastick on the freaky factor of opening your door with that many hungry cats. Yikes! And I go back to the smell. They pixalated the heck out of him, didn’t they? 🙂 The HIV news really is great. I hope you have a great weekend too, Lex!

    I had to go look at the cat island. They look healthy and well fed. I might be a little scared to open my door and see that many cats waiting to be fed though.
