Writer's Block: Meow vs. Arf

Cats or dogs-- which do you prefer, and why?
I love 'em both, but I prefer cats!

Cats are more independent.  Dogs require more care and handling than cats.  I don't have to get up in the middle of the night during a rainstorm or snowstorm to let my cat out to pee or poop or walk my cat.  (I realize some people do walk their cats, but it's not the same as having a dog).   When I leave town, my cat will be fine on his own for a few days; all I need to do is have enough water and food available and have a friend look in on him once or twice depending on how long I'm gone.  I love my cat!

Writer's Block: Starstruck

My husband and I met Courtney B. Vance at Kowalski's in Uptown Minneapolis years ago.  We have also met Amel Larrieux.  He met Chick Corea last year.  We were getting off of a bus (also years ago) in Downtown Minneapolis and saw Tim Allen.
