The boy: still talking regularly, and are planning to get together this weekend
The boy cat: home from the vet and feeling much abused and prone to vapors (actually, that's fairly typical...the vapors, not the abuse).
The orchid: flower is in full bloom.
The (current) job: still boring, mind-numbing, pointless, and so on. Though, that must be obvious as I am posting a stupid little update instead of doing any work.
