From Jp – Somebody to Love

January 18, 2013

I work hard every day of my life
I work ’til I ache in my bones
At the end of the day
I take home my hard earned pay all on my own
I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
‘Til the tears run down from my eyes
Lord, somebody, oh somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
— Queen, “Somebody to Love”

Emma’s getting a cat!


Working at an ensemble theatre company gets one accustomed to being around and relying on a family of artists and company members that surround you constantly.  When you get home in the evening and the mob isn’t present, sometimes the silence of an empty house can be deafening.  I think that’s why Lisa and I have four cats.  It’s sort of like our own little private ensemble; we have disagreements, we have to clean up after each other and we are always there to lend a hand.

Today, Emma and her squeeze begin their own kitty ensemble.  I hope you’ll join me in wishing them luck on their first season together  (which I’m sure will involve ample amounts of hairballs and litter).

    YAY Emma! Can’t wait to meet you new kitty 🙂 Maybe we can have a play date with our four…actually that may be a terrible plan. Our kitties don’t even get along all the time!

    Cats RULE! If Alan and I weren’t renters (and Sundance could actually tolerate other animals being around), I know we’d have more cats — especially since we’ve been volunteering at the local Humane Society, which is chock-a-bloc with amazing cats. Best wishes for many happy years together!
