Briefcase: Another tricky one to find. It has to do with Deep Thought, the smart computer built to answer the question of 'Life, the Universe and Everything'. "On the day of the Great On-Turning two soberly dressed programmers with brief cases arrived..." This evolves into a discussion of whether or not Deep Thought is the smartest computer ever made, which, even though it has just been turned on, apparently it isn't. All confusing and very Douglas Adams.
I can't find anything interesting to do with briefcase. I once found a gorgeous grey leather briefcase In perfect condition in a thrift shop for under $10 -- It must have cost ten times that new. I used it for a while when I was teaching, but it turned out to be both too heavy and too small. Similar story: I once bought a beautiful hand painted leather purse, but it too was too heavy to use on a daily basis. I get it out every now and then, use it for a day and then put it away with a sore shoulder.
So instead of a picture of that grey briefcase (mainly because I can't find it) I've chosen to go with a briefcase/portfolio that I would like to have. The only ones in my local art store are black and boring.
I'm a little more pleased with my quilling inchie:
On the kitty front, Kaliko is a little better. The vet gave her some anti-depressants to make her eat (and make her happy) and they have worked. She is eating and has resumed some of her annoying behaviours such as walking on my chest in the early morning and knocking things off of shelves. I really thought I was going to lose her last week. I know she is still sick and old, but it's nice to see her happier. If only it were easier to make her swallow those pills -- anyone have any suggestions?
