Silliness & Fun
I am currently sitting in the chilly living room of some of my dearest friends. Chelidon, Claudia, Kelly, Paul, Forest and baby Dylan along with their coterie of cats and one large (!) puppy named Griffen. Griffen, standing on all fours, reaches almost to my waist. He is a sweet dog … even when he is pooping all over my shoe. Chelidon has given me permission to take a whiz on his paws. “Stop moving, Griffen, it’l come out eventually!”
So anyway … I am having such fun visiting here in New Hampshire. And getting to see baby Dylan is a big treat. He laughs in his sleep! No, really! Yay, cuteness overload!!!!
And I got to witness the removal of Forest’s braces. Yay, Forest! This year I taught him how to levitate things through only the power of his mind. Heh, heh, be very afraid!
I was spirited away on Sunday to the largest arcade I have ever seen. And so I spent hours playing Centipede (high scorer!), Multipede, Skee ball (God’s favorite sport!) and tons of pinball! I am a happy, happy girl! Besides the really, really bad pizza at the arcade, I have been eating such delicious food! Yay, food! Lots of exclamation points in this post … for a good reason!
Later this week, I will mosey on over to Brattleboro to start my first session at Assisi. But for right now, I get hang out with some strange, but cute characters from my past. I am a happy, happy girl! Yay, Bricks! [… er um, ignore that reference to bricks …ahem …]

Snapshots of my vacation so far …
- Selecting a bit more of the dark side then the light side when cutting a “balanced “ piece of Star Trek/Star Wars themed birthday cake
- Forced to watch adult swim episodes (Venture Brothers) with drunken companions.
- Munching on gourmet two-egg omelet filled with herbs and dotted with cheese.
- Sitting in air-conditioned interiors while it is only in the seventies outside, and no … we have no hot soup, hot tea or quilts available… brrrrrr ..
- Subject to late night torture with Muppet videos while swilling back Old Fashioneds.
- Crashing my way to last place in video driving game in front of cheering on-lookers.
- Early morning conversations with an eight year old about naming pet tarantulas and scorpions with names like Fluffy and Spot.
Spending time with dear old friends ... priceless.

So as my coven sister, Rose, reminded me ... my coven, Dark Flame, buried three vials in the dark earth on the dark moon in the dark of night ... and what I find the next morning are three black kittens.
[ ... key in B movie science fiction music ...]
Today they had their first bath ... lets just say it was a thrilling morning and leave it at that.
The Calico Priestess actually barked at my shirt afterwards ... she ran from me till I change it. I want to make sure you get this ... my 14 year old calico barked! Ai yi yi!
So later when Rose stopped by with milk, eggs and .... oooo ... chocolate, She got to play with the kittens and help me feed them.
Rose is in love! She was completely bowled over by how small they are. And by the fact that they hiss till they are picked up and held close.
I am slowly getting them acclimated to human touch, so if you are local and want to help with giving them hugs and petting, let me know. We may have found a home for two of them. But they still need loads more work to help them finish weaning and get their strength up.
I have named them collectively the Daemon-Fafa!
Rose was initially appalled by the name till she saw them and laughed. They are totally black, even their eyes are a milky black. And when they are huddled together, the look like a feline version of a baby Cerberus. Adorable little Kittehs of Hell!
So, okay I have to stop before I start doing cat stories ad infinitum. But that does not mean I will not post more pictures ... just saying.
