Mochi is my favorite thing about New Year’s Day.  It’s yummy sticky poofy rice goodness…and I cannot wait for these braces to come off so I can eat it again!

Anyhow, I’ve got mochi on the brain because we got our new kitteh and her name is officially Mochi.Ta-da!Ta-Da!

I can’t stop there though.  No. I have to fill this post with sticky sweet pictures of our bebe.  Why?  Because we are taking turns sleeping with her until she is integrated into the Rira House and tonight (er, last night) was my night and even though she passed out COLD for a few hours, 5am seems to be her PARTY hour and my no more sleep time…so i escape..only to post pictures of her.  Sad.

    Hi Shelby. I don’t know if you remember me or not but we conversed a bit when you were newly-chinned. I have been reading your site regularly even though I haven’t commented alot. You are funny chick.

    Well, I am glad to tell you that I have a surgery date! Do you have any advice for someone two months from having surgery. I have the blenders (stick and regular) and advice on what to make to eat. I have my white board and case of chapstick. I am borrowing a recliner from my folks so I will have a place to hang out that is really comfy during the post-op time. I don’t have a kitty (DH is allergic) but I have a Bassett Hound that is pretty good company.

    I like your idea of Operation Birthday Suit – where it isn’t so much a competition as assured mutual destruction or success.
