This is the header I want to use.

Explanatory forum topic link.  As you can see, cropping the sides off right to the letters would make the header less visually appealing, enough so that it isn’t worth using in my opinion.  A big thanks to KatM for resizing it for me!

Check these songs out!

Here are several artists and their songs that have hit my ears just right lately, in no particular order.

Imogen Heap – Headlock  (Check out her whimsical petticoat in this video.)

Regina Spektor – US  (I love her suit in this, and her shoes/hose!)

Amy Winehouse – Back to Black

KT Turnstall – Suddenly I See

Renee Olstead – Is You Is, Or Is You Ain’t My Baby? 

The song from The Best of Ya Salaam played on this Sadie Bellydance video.  Wish I knew the name of the song. 

Cats, cats, cats!

Here is a slideshow of the various cats I have been a servant or friend to, past and present.  (ETA:  The pictures were all taken with disposable Kodak funsavers.  I don’t have a digital camera at the moment, and things like pets getting hit by a car keep coming up and straining the budget.) 

Bah

Here is the entire image I want to use as my profile picture.  For some reason, WordPress is insisting on cropping it.  I’ll probably have to find a different image.  Argh!  I’ll post the resized version, and the last one I just tried to put on my profile.  The images are of a mobile I made for my parents some time back.  It has twelve strands, and was made using different sorts of glass beads and floral wire.  (Knotting the floral wire around the beads to hold them in place *just so* was time consuming!)  I was going on the idea of the children’s book in which a young mouse keeps his brothers and sisters warm and happy through the winter with his stories, giving them the gift of color in the midst of Winter’s drabness.  I wanted to bring color into their house, suspended in drops on beams of sunlight. 

 Mobile  (Link to full sized image of picture just below.)

Here are some more images of the mobile I made.  The wind kept tangling the strands.  That is my husband holding the mobile.  I’m too short.
