Snagged from a bunch of folks:

1. How did you name your pets?
Theoden was named "Jupiter" when I got him from the animal shelter, and as appropriate as that was for a big, rather round, buff-colored boy, it didn't shorten well for calling. At the time Lord of the Rings was my most overwhelming fandom, and particularly the Rohirrim, but "Eomer" didn't work... which made me think of his resemblance to Bernard Hill as Theoden, and that stuck.

Our other cat, originally The Boy's, is Random. Because his acquisition of The Boy was very random. :)

2. Poirot or Miss Marple?
Neither, really, but I've probably seen more Poirot.

3. Do you have a FB account too?
Yeah, but I tend to avoid it mostly.

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
I read mostly on my Kindle and from the library, nowadays, but am perfectly happy with whatever. Slightly prefer paperbacks for being less heavy and also generally cheaper.

5. Mobile: Windows, Android or Apple?
I didn't get a phone at all until very late, and when I upgraded to a smartphone I was very happy with my Palm Pre. Currently have a very old iPhone, but planning to switch to Android whenever I finally convince myself to upgrade.

I liked that one too

the Palm Pre was brand new when I was working on a file management app for All The Phones. It had my favorite OS, and it felt so good in the hand, a nearly perfect size.

1) Does not currently have pets. Mucca's dad's kitty is named Lulu the Agoraphobic Mini-Kitty. She is both unmixy with large spaces or loud strangers, and a very small (shorthaired, black) cat. I miss her a lot.

2) Miss Fisher!

3) Ditto.

4) Mostly Kobo ereader and whatever the library or the booksale has. Agree about pb pricing!

5) I, uh, got the cheapest most basic smartphone the shop has that was an actual recognizable brand name (instead of the house knockoff) when I got my first one in 2015. I think it's an Android? I don't really hold strong opinions about what's better, though.

I had a Vizor at one point, and a Palm III before that.

Me, too! I was an early Palm adopter, and... yeah.

I didn't know that Theoden's name was originally Jupiter! :D

...Okay, that does make him sound kinda like Zeus from Disney's Hercules. XD

Mostly I'm commenting to say hi because I just subscribed to you, but also, the reasons for your cats' names are charming. ^_^
