Always good to be missed.

I find myself checking in so infrequently, and FAWTL is too much to follow.

I always carry one, because no way am I wasting spells on curing people. Especially now that Bashy grants me spontaneous inflict spells.

Most days when I get home from work, our Arya kitten wants to be picked up. It’s her way of saying “hello.”

Today is one of the special days where she doesn’t want to be put back down. She has been clinging to me for the last 45 minutes. *swoon*

I read this as “kittywhore”. Either way, Arya is deeply offended.

We closed on the house this past Monday! It has made for an odd Thanksgiving week. We decided to have a quiet day and ate at home Thursday.

It was a good thing too. When we went to the house after the closing, we discovered the seller had wasted no time in shutting off the electric service. I had to call to have it restored, which it was on Wednesday evening.

Since we were preparing for the coldest Thanksgiving on record, we were worried about the pipes freezing, so I headed to the house Thursday morning (about a 75 minute drive). I got there and realized I had not brought the keys with me. And the furnace was definitely off.

So, back to the old house to get the keys, then back to the new house. It was 37* F inside. I got breakers turned on, powered up the furnace, and checked the pipes. They were okay, but if I had waited until Friday I have no doubt they would have frozen.

After two round trips, I was home at 4:30, and that was my Thanksgiving.

(This is not on social media at the moment. John has not given notice at his job.)

Slightly tipsy text messages to Freehold this week:

My mantra now is ‘Fun takes effort ‘. I used to have a bad attitude about putting in the effort to make things happen. Things were difficult, too far, I might not get in. Fnck that. Take the extra effort, spend the grocery money, take the thre-hour drive, take a chance a ticket comes up at the box office. Lots do.

Example: Sunday I’d like nothing better than be a slug on my couch the entire day. But, it’s a day I’ll never have back. Is being some sort of sessile creature going to do anything for me long run? So, I’ve made up my mind, I’m going to Amish country in PA. Maybe see some leaves. Kick around, buy a soft pretzel and a funnel cake. Six hours driving, but who cares? I’ll at least remember the weekend, rather than having a forgotten day. One of my limited days on this planet. We only get so many.

Thats an awesome attitude dude. :)

(I should probably try harder) ;P

I'm pulling out (whats left) of my hair trying to convince my 15 yr old son that not EVERYTHING can be delivered to you immediately and digitally. Sometimes even having fun takes a little time and (GASP!) effort of going out and doing something! :P

Not that his dad has been a great example lately. Too much time trying to catch up on recorded TV shows and playing Champions online. ;P

BUT I did get talked ointo auditioning/ accepting a part for "Its a Wonderful LIfe" (Darn my theater addicted daughter!) They gave me Clarence the angel. How can I say no? :P

So much for my easy, stress-free Fall,... ;)

That sounds like it could be a fun part!

Perhaps Game of Thrones hasn’t warranted much mention because you expect everyone to die, but...

Spoiler:
Hodor. Man was that a punch to the gut.

Also seconding Mufasa and Littlefoot’s mom. There’s something especially horrible about the death of a character witnessed through the eyes of a scared child.

She wasn't paralyzed with fear.

She was MESMERIZED by the hypnotic action of the kitty-calming-induction-device! ;)

You have made the discovery of our feline overlords ONE weakness! The human race is saved! ;P

I don’t know about that. All of her fur was standing straight up and she was frozen in the back-arching pose you see in Halloween decorations.

Hmm,... keep an eye on the washing machine. If it suffers from 'unexpected' or 'unexplainable' malfunctions, it'll be due to the lil kittens' revenge! :)

(J/K, she's alright, right?) :)

I wouldn’t doubt it. Given how easily she claws through human skin, a water line for the washing machine should be an easy target.

My vehicle is dead. It's 16 years old with 248k miles. I have no idea what's wrong with the engine part of it because it would cost me more than I can even afford to have it towed to the mechanic's. The other thing wrong with it is the suspension is gone and it's sitting directly on the frame.

I got new tires for it for Christmas and it died in April. So I've got a nearly mint condition set of tires on a vehicle that doesn't run. Oh for the gift of prescience because I sure could've used that tire money on rent or groceries.

If you know you won’t need them, why not sell the tires? You could recoup 50-60% of what you paid for them on Craigslist or eBay.

I've never worn a tux, not even to my own wedding.

I own one and wear it about 4 times a year, mostly for concerts where I am singing.

I took it to the tailor last year and asked if he could let out the pants a bit. He looked at the pants and told me they appear to have been let out a few times already and there is no more material.

Lies and propaganda, I tell you! Those pants are shrinking and I won’t hear otherwise!

PATRICK looks thoughtfully into the distance.

A VACATIONER, male, mid-60s in a Hawaiian shirt and shorts, decides to strike up a conversation.

VACATIONER: You seem deep in thought.

PATRICK: I am imagining what nearby implement I could kill you with if you turned into a zombie.

VACATIONER (uncomfortable): Zombies, huh? I guess I’d be headed for a lifeboat.

PATRICK: There are 86 lifeboats on this vessel. The nearest one is 113 feet away, on the port side. Assuming 80% of the passengers turned into zombies, the odds are you would encounter 9 zombies on your way to the boat. I don’t like your chances.

VACATIONER: Say, is that my wife calling me? I’m going to go now.

PATRICK: Good Luck.

Pretty much. I’m certain about 95% of the cruise goers were not in anyway involved in any fantasy save Disney. Zombie survival scenarios were likely not thought of.

There were depressingly few weapons available. I’d have to go with deck chair for a main weapon. Either that or grab a liquor bottle. It’d be a tough call.

That would be a tough call. You might want that liquor later.

CH: Quick thought. With your new property abutting a preserve you need to build a bird feeding station. Make sure you can see it from a window in your house, preferably where you eat. Watching birds is very zen, and you start to recognize individuals at the feeders.
Also gives Aria opportunity to master her hunting skills. Or more likely something to look at through the window as I presume you will keep her indoors for her own good.

Yes, as a hand-raised cat I don’t think she will have the skills to thrive outdoors.

And Patrick, we have bird feeders now, so I’m sure we will there too.

The kitten Aria does not have this huntress thing down yet. She just aggressively pounced on my foot... and then started licking it.

I don’t think you’re supposed to groom your prey, little one.

We were delighted when we were there with my six-year-old niece last year. We thought we would have to spend all our time in line for pictures with princesses. Instead she immediately said, “That’s just a lady in a costume. I don’t need a picture with her. Let’s go back to the rides.”
