I had to buy bifocals today. They are called "progressive lenses." Yeah, progressing to death. WHERE IS MY SHAWL? I NEED TO GO START WATCHING MATLOCK.

My cat has head tremors. It's like a few seconds of something that is like Parkinsonian. I've heard that is common because she's old and it could be for a variety of curable, treatable and untreatable reasons. Everything is old. She's 14 1/2 and will probably die in the next couple of years. I love my kitty. She's seen me through so many moves and transitions, especially upending my entire life in 2009 and coming alone to Philadelphia to go to school.

I don't want to see her get sick.

Everything is old. I need more cake.
