7:33 PM: fup. store cat.
sven & i stopped by fup's 19th birthday at powell's technical books today. it was a decidedly low-key affair: fup stayed in the back, where they've built a table with a lip around the edge and a ramp down to the floor. i saw her come down the ramp and totter a few tiny steps before deciding it was too much trouble and went back up the ramp again. every year i worry this will be fup's last birthday. this year i was especially worried because they usually have the birthday party in late june or early july, and they just announced this one earlier in the week.
michaelmas has been to every fup party but had to work at the library today, so we brought him a cupcake from the party to toast to fup's health. then we went to the portland art museum to see photos from the oaks park carousel, a gift from kristen & todd for my birthday. then we did some errands at art media, finnegan's & pearl hardware. by the end of all that my ears were ringing, so we're home again, contemplating dinner after a large, late ole burrito.
