Game on
Last dog watch, 2 bells (7:20 pm)

Well today MP and I did some weightlifting before racquetball, as we are wont to do. If you combine all the weight we did today, that's the equivalent of lifting about 8400 pounds (each). Phew.

I took the first match, but not by much. The second one was going even tougher, when I finally invited JP to come down (he was watching and lifting weights—the racquetball court has a window to the weightroom up high) and play cutthroat. MP won our cutthroat game. He had to leave, though, so JP and I played another game (my 4th of the day). I beat him, although he gave me a run for my money. Not quite like MP does, but close. I was pretty worn out, though, after lifting weights and playing 3 previous games. Anyway, I got hit in the armpit by the ball, I have a nasty looking red welt there, but it doesn't sting anymore.

New Category!
Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:06 am)

This is so stupid I needed a new category for it.

Some chump patented using a laser pointer to exercise a cat:

1. A method of inducing aerobic exercise in an unrestrained cat comprising the steps of:

* (a) directing an intense coherent beam of invisible light produced by a hand-held laser apparatus to produce a bright highly-focused pattern of light at the intersection of the beam and an opaque surface, said pattern being of visual interest to a cat; and
* (b) selectively redirecting said beam out of the cat's immediate reach to induce said cat to run and chase said beam and pattern of light around an exercise area.
