Alex's Homecoming, a new kitty and an experiment  


I have had so much going on in RL lately. Everytime I got near my laptop (which I have NOT taken in yet), I kept thinking, 'oooh! I should post about that,' or 'I want to finish the next chapter of this and that' and when I would sit down, I would get interrupted or I knew I should be doing something more important.


Sometimes I think I should just write a post that says, 'gone fishin - will be back when I can,' but I don't want to and I want to stick around.

Anywho, my oldest daughter, Alex, went to her first Homecoming dance last Saturday night (not the one that just passed, but the one BEFORE - see? I'm so behind here).

Here she is in all her glory...

Shane's mom was so excited about the whole thing and how cute they looked together, she was already picking out the colors for their wedding.

I don't think so...

Also, we got a new kitty! Someone abandoned a tiny little gray fur ball in our restaurant gazebo. The guys heard some meowing and went to investigate. What they found was the world's cutest kitten in a box. I took it home all the while saying, 'yep, we're not keeping this thing.' I showed it to Joe.

He said the same thing.

So the next thing I know, the kitten has taken up residence on Joe's collarbone, right under his chin and wouldn't leave. Not that Joe, you know, would let him.

SO, the next thing I know, I'm taking the kitten to a vet, who tells me the kitty's only about 4 weeks old, and that it has a cold. So for the next two weeks I was feeding it antibiotics and putting drops in its eyes while it slept on Joe.

It's official...it's part of the family now. The only thing we haven't done is name it - well actually, we haven't agreed on a name yet. I call it Psycho Kitty, Joe's been calling it Nero, Alex has been calling it Percy and Rowan and Donovan have been calling it Kitty.

So there you go. We'll have a cat with a split personality disorder on our hands soon enough. Here's some pics of the cute little guy:

A real charmer!

I'm just about ready to post the questions up for discussion at my movie site, the_other_slash for the movie Halloween.

Oh yeah! I'm not sure if people have been following the debate on fb on the bjfic yahoo site but I think that both sides have valid points. (Of course, I haven't really read any bj fic lately so I'm not sure what the problem was).

My one problem with certain writers though is this: There are some writers who can write something everyday.

I can't do this. I mean, I can technically speaking, but I wouldn't want to post it. And I feel that some other writers have this affliction too.

Only the difference is that they post their writings.

Hey. I don't care. There are people who like that sort of thing and it's no skin off my back (ewww...where did that saying come from?). I just like to make sure what I put out there is something I could be proud of.

Yeah...don't laugh...even happy cannibals.

And when I say people who can post everyday, I'm not talking about people who write good fic AHEAD of time and then post a chapter every day or every other day. This means it was well thought out and written beforehand.

So...I've decided to try an experiment. I am going to set aside one half hour every night. (This will be my half hour in between checking to make sure Griffon's homework is done and reading to Rowan and Donovan). In that half hour, I will write.

Just write.

Not the good stuff (the stuff I should be writing - like Justin's Baby and an update of the cannibal fic - these I need quiet for and I'm just not getting it lately). But just write whatever comes into my head.

And then I'll post it and see what happens.

I'll call it my 'Badfic posting of the day.'

Just for fun.

Think of it as 'Adlibs on Acid' or something.

As always, you'll be allowed to leave whatever fb you want. To tell you the truth, you probably shouldn't even read it.

Could be fun. *shrugs shoulders*

If it's too much work to even write badfic, then we'll call that a failed experiment.

hey how exciting: first homecoming :) Love her dress BTW! And your new kitty is so cute!! I would love to have a cat, however my husband is convinced that he's allergic to it (though he's never been in the same room as a cat). I was allergic to them, but recently when I go to a home with cats, I don't have any reactions... maybe I outgrew them?
Oooh, you're planning on updating your cannibal fic? I'm so excited! And Justin's Baby too? You're so spoiling us (don't stop!). Curious to read your "badfic" postings... wonder how they'll turn out?

Yes!!! First homecoming. They're already discussing the prom. LOL!

I used to think I was allergic to cats but then we got Max when we were first married and I was never allergic to him. We had various cats through the years and I was okay.

I think it's just the time of year. If you're allergic to anything seasonal, its aggravated by cats. We now have 4 of them.

I just posted the prologue to my badfic. Enjoy! *snicker*
