Day two with Pal from MA

Pal from MA is videotaping my matuurity.

 

Also?

 

I guess technically I recorded that one. Whatev.

My kitty gets here today. I will leave at lunchtime and get her, and take her home and set her up in the spare bedroom (now that I deflated the bed) (like a grownup) with all her new supplies.

Pal and I went to Pet Supplies "Plus" and note the "Plus" is in quotes and then the end quote was burnt out. You can imagine how this entire scenario didn't make my entrails pucker up or anything.

Nevertheless, we got this:

A cute cute cute bed, which she will care about deeply with all her visual skills, and toys that rattle so she can hear them, and a pink and green flowered collar. Yes, I will take the bell off because I figure she can hear me from the shelter right now, so acute are her other senses.

I also got a case of kitten food, which Pal paid for to welcome her to my world. And also? I think Ima call her Iris Frost instead of Virgin Merry Bailey Ingalls. Keep up. Keep up with the mature whirlwind that is June.

I took Pal to Stameys, which is an excellent and also very classy barbecue place. Oddly, Pal had spent the whole morning hoping I'd suggest we go out for barbecue, so there was some kismet or simpatico or really unhealthy eating patterns at work there.

We be happy. And adult.

Tune in tomorrow for blind baby kitty news!!!

  2. June I think in the spirit of the New (and improved) Year, you should make this a 2 post day so we can see pictures of sweet Iris Frost.

  3. You know, you get quicker results with those inflatable mattresses if you help them along a little with your fingers. Either slip a couple fingers in to hold the flap open, or give the valve a little pinch.

  4. June, you look radiant in that last pic! Your heart opened up to this special kitty, and she will just fill you with love. Can you please put up pics before tomorrow, as I can’t wait to see you two at home ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope you can look forward to a better new year ahead, and put some of the junk behind you. I plan to do that for myself, after also having a less-than-great-year.

  5. I haven’t been reading comments this week (I know…). I am so excited to hear that the kitten is coming home today! Yay! Please post pictures. I can’t wait to see her. And it took me a bit but I love the name…and more importantly, I UNDERSTAND it. Love!

  6. Could someone please explain her name to me? I thought it was Iris because of her eyes and Frost because of the season, but I am getting the feeling there is a deeper, cleverer meaning that I just don’t get because I am so out of the hep-culture loop. Anyone?
    Happy birthday, Anita.

  7. Thanks, everyone. I thought maybe her name was a reference to yet another tv show that I can’t watch because I don’t have cable.

  9. Is June talking about Pal again? Yes, she is cute. But, perhaps you are talking about a tiny sweet kitty who has a new home, a new mama and doggie siblings. Welcome to the world, baby girl!

  10. So excited about Iris. I would have taken her to work with me. I’m sure your employer would have been pleased. So, does that means Pal is babysitting?
    You two are having too much fun. Both videos cracked me up. It’s so good to hear you laugh and having such a good time. Best friends are wonderful.
    I think Pal’s Mom has your number.

  11. Loved the videos! You and Pal are both adorable.
    Congrats on the homecoming of Iris, even if you can’t be home right now, and BOO for that. But you’ll get some cuddles tonight!
    Iris Frost is a great name! Isis Frosty would have been cool, also, what with the whole egyptian goddess cat worshipping thing.
    PS- Paula, cutting the doughnuts in five pieces– priceless.

  12. Oh! Well, I MISUNDERSTOOD. I thought you were leaving at lunch to get her and I didn’t realize you were returning to work! Jeebus.

  13. Wow. Did you know you got an accent? I mean, I knew you were from Michigan, but you and Pal really sound like you are. Does it get thicker when you hang with another one? I’m from Maine and when Ima hang with another one, you can’t tell what the hell we’re saying. Ayuh.
    Big up to Iffy.
    P.S. Did you ever consider filling your inflatable with helium? Makes it into a sorta sex toy. If you got the costume to go with it. ;0]

  14. Lisa Pie, it wasn’t my recipe, I found it on another blog and just tried it and shared it. That’s all. Your idea of variations sound wonderful. It is good candy. I made two batches and gave MOST of it away, but we did manage to eat our share of it. It was a very big hit with everyone I gave it to as a gift. Where are you that it’s so warm?

  15. Shit. When did June speak? I totally missed it and STILL can’t find the definition. Now I feel dumb because I thought I understood (and was SO PROUD–I felt so smart) but really I misunderstood completely. Sorry Linda for the misinformation and thank you to Letha for the correction. (Sorry.)
