Me, Myself and I: I am the author of this blog, and therefore not required to come up with an alternative name for myself.
My Geek: According to the modern dictionary a geek is any smart person with an obsessive interest (a nerd is the same but also lacks social grace). He is smart. And he obsesses, therefore I lovingly refer to him as My Geek.
Remy: He is a mutt and is irrefutably the BEST DOG EVER. Being a dog, he gets to use his own name.
Italics: A medium-hair calico and about the prettiest cat you've ever seen. He believes he owns the house. He demonstrates this by jumping on the counters. Or climbing on your lap and sitting on top of the book you're reading.
