- First off, I've missed some birthdays, so belated best wishes to maverick4oz, rustler, and adrianabr! (What is up with all the January birthdays? Do they put something in the water in April?)
- Woe is me. You know what happens when you sit for too long on a plot bunny that is... not necessarily great, but you yourself are very infatuated with? Somebody else will write the exact same bunny, only ten times better than any of the ideas you had. Le sigh.
- But now my most exciting news! I ADOPTED A KITTY! Actually, both my family and I got kittens from the RSPCA (although not really 'kittens' - more the cat equivalent of teenagers); they're both boys (brothers from the same litter), and they're perfect! They were even already litter-trained by the time we got them, and after five days, there hasn't been a single accident, or terrible behaviour from them yet. I think we really lucked out with these two.
Mine is a dark-coloured tabby, and the one belonging to the rest of the family is similar, but with white socks and white on his face. Their cat is named Benji - he's a hyperactive dare-devil, who doesn't like to be cuddled too much, but adores his brother and follows his lead.
My kitty however, is the dominant cat - slightly calmer, though still a mischeif-maker, who is very very curious about everything, loves exploring and figuring out how things work, gets cranky when Benji messes with his stuff, and loves to curl up in bed with me and snooze for hours on end when he's not staring fascinatedly at my laptop. My SGA peeps will understand how, with that personality, how could I name him anything but Rodney? *g*
I'll have to post pics of Rodney and Benji soon - they're soooo cute! :o)
