I'm so excited I could puke!

So tomorrow's my first day out on my new cat, I'm calling tomorrow "CATURDAY". He's a brand spaning new yellow/Black 12'6" Sotar Legend, name of "Mothra". The stars are shining on me as the Lochsa level is dropping nicely for a friendlier first run, I plan to be there Sat & Sun.

In the meantime, I'm stuck at work, can't think, and feel like I'm going to puke. Someone, please help me!!!!!!

Hmm. Breathe deeply and think of splashy good fun tomorrow. Sounds like a nice rig. I'm jealous! Mothra.. love those cheesy Japanese monster flix.

Puke in your trashcan and then tell your boss you don't feel well enough to stick it out all afternoon.

Mothra was the name of a past "lifetime" cat. I also had a cat named Godzilla, LOVED those old movies as a kid, afterschool movies (before cable - OMG! lived in the backwoods so it came late).

I always wanted to get 2 kittens and name them "Jesus" and "Christ", so I could yell that around the neighborhood calling them home. I just didn't have the guts though. It's a good thing I've mellowed with age.

Trying to breathe, trying to breathe, trying to stay off the internet and get work done, right!

Oh MY GOD! I just about hurled on my keyboard I laughed so hard!!! I think a good involuntary laugh buys at least a half hour of work-tolerance, but that one's gonna get me through the afternoon!

Total Rad, Thanks!

We'll expect a full report on Mothra's maiden voyage. Should be a nimble little hotrod.

Mothra, and Mothra (with Hazel, she couldn't let the "cat" have all the attention). Mothra was a bad-ass, but treated me well. I'm hoping he's passing it on to his namesake.

Note the frame is a loaner, I wouldn't put such a color-uncoordinated frame on him! My frame will be black, probably get a black seat too. Sotar's make you kind of a fashion slave.

That cat looks like serious fun! The boat of course, not the feline.
