I got three visits in this week that included kitty cuddles. One was on Monday when Lee and I went to Giffy’s and played with the ocicats, who eventually got tired out and one climbed under the blanket I was snuggling and went to sleep leaning against my thigh. Awww.
Then last night we went to Seraph’s house for “board games” and I managed to snaffle Shadow twice for snuggles. This afternoon we visited my sister (whose belly has popped out like woah!) and I managed to snafu her kitty. Mostly to stop the kitty knocking everything off the top of the dresser but once I had her she just went *flop* in my arms so I got some cuddle in.
I also visited Rachel for lunch on Friday but her kitties are stand offish to me, unless I have meat, so I don’t count that as kitty cuddles.
Yesterday Lee and I had to get up “early” so that his sister, bro in law and neice could come over. That meant I was getting into the shower as they arrived, but after I had myself sorted out I had a nice chat and invented a politeness game with neice. V. fun.
Then various people turned up at various times and eventually we were on the road to Southwards theatre to watch Jj, Giffy, Sok, Beau and G perform in the Mikado. It was a good show, lovely sets and costume design (my Mum wants one of the kimonos) and of course lots of fun watching my friends on stage.
I liked Koko and the Mikado the best out of the leads, I found the romantic leads to be a bit hard to hear when singing and a bit insipid when talking. That’s Gilbert and Sullivan for you though…not a lot of character development. My favourite song was “A More Human Mikado” because of the dance sequence, which looked like a lot of fun to be in and I’m sad that I missed Giffy’s charleston that she did specially for me. I caught the end anyway. Other highlights from the chorus: Beau’s manly hiding of his tears, random Asian guy of awesome physical comedy and all the shuffling the ladies had to do. It was so cute!
After that we hung around like groupies for the stars to come out and see us, then it was back into town for “board games” with Seraph. I had a lot of fun, getting tiddly on white wine and playing Fury Of Dracula. I like the idea of the game but the combat system is very…very slow. Plus, game play seemed very convoluted. I liked the little figures though, and I got to be Dr Seward so that’s nice.
After that we watched Manos: the Hands of Fate because R hadn’t seen it and we had much fun laughing through that.
Today was a brilliantly beautiful day. We went out this morning to the Video Ezy DVD sale and I bought Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Sky High, Lemony Snicket and Night Watch. Lee bought Goodnight and Good luck which is contrary to our rule of not buying stuff we haven’t seen, but it’s had pretty amazing reviews so it’s a fairly safe bet. I also wanted Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Mirrormask like Seraph got but they weren’t at the Jville branch and Lee we shouldn’t bother with another branch. Le sigh.
I finished reading Joanie Frankenhauser and have started a book by the author of the Rainbow Boys series. It’s pretty good.
