Good news on the cat front. Snowy had her blood tests yesterday and they came back completely normally: so no diabetes, liver disease or kidney problems. So that's really good.

So basically all we can do is to keep monitoring her for further fits. Basically if she does have further fits and they are more than 3 months apart and they don't start getting closer together then it's probably idiopathic (in other words Snowy was effectively born with the possibility of having siezures and it has just finally manifested) and there really is nothing to worry about.

So good news over all; Snowy is 14 in a couple of months and is already the cat we've had who has lived longest (poor Benji died when he was 13, but he had a dicky ticker) and she has always been robustly healthy, but she is of course no longer a young cat so we expect things to start going awry.

Good news (or at least HOPEFUL news) on Snowy.
Sorry the job hunt continues to wear on you. For what it's worth, you certainly have my best wishes that you'll find something you like that isn't a terrible commuting distance away from home.
Are you and P. coming to WisCon this year? Be sure to keep us posted -- we'd love to see you again.

Thanks! I must admit that sometimes I find the job-hunting quite difficult. I'm trying to be reassured that on the whole I'm getting good feedback on my apparent competence!

Alas, for the first time in, what 12 years?, we'll be missing Wiscon this year. We've got a show just before (Sister Act, in which I get to sing mainly falsetto...in Spanish...) and if I'm working I won't have accrued enough holiday and if I'm not working I can't really afford to lost a couple of weeks of application/interview time (also it would be difficult to justify the £3-to-4k expense of the trip when only one of us is working. We could actually find the money, to be fair, but it would be difficult to justify.)

Assuming I get some employment in the meantime we are intending to come over later in the year and spend a few days in Madison.

Well, we will certainly miss you, and I'll definitely be rewatching Children of the Stones and thinking of you. :)

Excellent Snowy news!
