I came outside with Edsel this morning and it was so nice out that I doused self in Off, got the laptop, and decided to blog al fresco. How irritating am I for calling it “al fresco”?
I can hear crickets, still, as it hasn’t been dawn for that long. It hasn’t been Tony Orlando, either. I can also hear my neighbor’s air conditioner, and I wonder if she knows the little side panel in her window is falling out. I’ll have to tell her when she next lets out her dogs, She always accompanies them the whole time they’re outdoors, whereas I usually just open the back door and say, “Fly. Be free.” Although he looks back at me and wants me to come out with him, which is why I did today. He’s not an independent creature the way Tallulah was.
A train just went by. When I first moved here I noted every train and even wrote down their arrival on a pad, so I’d know the schedule. It’s not a whistle stop; it’s just a rumble that I don’t even usually hear anymore. Ned’s old apartment was at a whistle stop and any time I picture us there that train is screeching at me. Same train, by the way. I mean, my tracks lead to Ned’s old place. Small world. Wouldn’t wanna paint it.
Anyway, my most exciting news is I have new conditioner. I read about this woman-owned company called Say NOAP, and they —
OK, I’m sorry. Lily is out here playing with an acorn and she’s leaping and hopping and I did not bring phone out here to photograph so you’ll have to trust me that it’s the cutest thing you ever didn’t see, this rotund cat leaping after an acorn.
Anyway. …This is like if Snow White were blogging from the cottage.
So, this woman wanted a really, really good conditioner, like Pureology good, and she didn’t want plastic bottles so she invented these bars of shampoo and conditioner that last as long as three bottles. I ordered one this month, after I didn’t have to get Edsel’s medicines and finally had that spare $32. Yes, a bar of conditioner is $32. It smells divine. But not like Divine. Further reports as developments warrant (FRaDW).
To be fair, I’ve spent a lot more than $32 on one bottle of conditioner.
What’s the stupidest thing you spend too much money on?
Regarding Forest T. Lawn, he is doing well. Uses his litterbox beautifully, and this morning he was purrpawing my face and do you know what I think? I think his claws are trimmed, hence that he didn’t scratch me on the walk home. Someone trimmed his little claws before dumping him. Can you imagine?
He and Milhous are playing basically all the time, and twice now I’ve put him in the spare room so he will rest and not exhaust himself playing. Also, I noted he jumped atop the dryer to eat the big-cats’ food. Who knew he could get up that high?
Lily also held him down and licked him, and he was not delighted but he let her do it. Imagine being a houseguest and Totie Fields holds you down and licks you.
These and other current references coming your way if you tune into Book of June.
I gotta go. I have to shower and use my new conditioner bar. I didn’t use product last time I showered as I was in migraine and was lucky to even cleanse at all. It was basically shower, get back in bed. So I have 10th grade hair now, where it’s kind of frizzy and wavy.
Yeah, no, that’s exactly what it looks like right now, minus the Sun-In color.
I have to go for real. Get my opal necklace on and go.
