But boats don't watch TV.

Today, a cat decided to sit on my lap for the first time ever. He's actually doing so right now. I finally understood that while temperamental, cats can be lovely and friendly creatures when they want something warm to sit on.

Today's our quiet day of the trip. Washing clothes and sitting around watching television and looking through the aeroplane's 'SkyMall' magazine, looking for ideas of nice Christmas presents. His and hers slippers, perhaps.

I spoiled the big secretive idea I had regarding getting Jamie a present, because I wanted to ensure it was okay to spend the amount it'd cost on her. She seemed okay about it, though.

We may see Rocky Horror Picture Show. We may see Mount Rainier. We may even see Dave Gorman, who is following me around with his Googlewhack adventure story. Whatever happens, I'm sure I will be eating more Strawberry Shortcakes (apparently the name for Swiss Roll here in Seattle) before I go.

This trip has further validated my love for Swiss Roll.
