But All That Precious Cat Gut!


Mikhail Youzhny is a young Russian man who is ranked 11th in the ATP Men’s tennis rankings–ha, as if you didn’t already know! I know all my readers are rabid tennis-maniacs–who was playing in a match down in Miami the other day when he lost a point and took it quite personally. He ends up hurting himself so badly he is forced to take a timeout so he can be treated by a trainer to staunch the blood! 39 seconds into this video you’ll see what I mean.

See, this is why I’ve always said, “Never play tennis, backgammon or roulette with a Russian, or else someone’s head will bleed.” It’s my only credo.

    My favorite part is that his opponent had to come over and see first hand what he did to himself. I love Mikhail Youzhny.

    Well, I’ve been taking care of a couple of cats lately, for about a couple of weeks. It was great fun, even having a cat jump up and down on me while I was trying to sleep. I found that to get the cats to behave I had to split my affections fairly equally, even though one of the two was much more aggressive in her demands for said affection. I won’t miss trying to read my computer screen or pages of a book while trying to peer around a kitten’s face. But the apartment feels a little emptier.
