Heh.  I do that too.  I call it the Summon Public Transport Spell.  Not only 
does it summon buses and parking spaces, I've also successfully used it to 
summon trains and key-holders (when we're locked out of the office).  And if 
three friends light up at once at a bus stop, it produces a taxi.  (This 
spell only works if you do it yourself, though - if some random stranger 
lights up at the bus stop, the bus will not arrive.)

On the subject of cat-naming, my current feline is named Severus. 
Previously, I have had Vanyel, Shia, Gandalf, Fitz, Teren, Tazey, Magrat, 
Kyra, Lujan and Arakasi (not all at once, I hasten to add!  Though I did, at 
one point, have 9 felines in the house, which was excessive).

A List-point to anyone who can identify the sources of all of these cat 

(My parents' current cats are called Natasha and Gabriela.  I call them Bold 
and Bad.)

Until the sky falls on our heads...
