dude_the is here. Yay!

Beastie updates:

Hobkin: Sicked up on Thursday, but he didn't yesterday. We're trying to feed him smaller, more frequent meal to see if that helps. 'Course that means he's getting fed something like five or six times a day. Don't want him to get used to that. Plus we can't keep that up over the weekend 'cause of Frolicon. Not sure if we're going into town tonight for the convention or waiting until tomorrow to get our registration et al. taken care of.

Kitty: No cat sightings, but she's been chowing down on the food I've been setting out. I've refilled the bowl three times in the last two days.

I'm sooo looking forward to seeing you and Matthew this weekend! I haven't had a Foster fix since I changed jobs back in October!

Also, I love that icon of yours. You should wear wings more often. Maybe to your next job interview, for example.

"Mrs. Foster, you're an excellent candidate for this position. Also, I can't help but notice that you have wings."

"Oh, these old things?" (*flap*)

I can't wait to see you too! Squee!

"You should wear wings more often."

They're such a hassle in crowds, though. Although I can definitely see how they could provide that little extra oomph at job interviews. Must keep them in mind. I may don my wings again this weekend; I haven't figured out what I'm wearing yet (eee!).

The only wings downside is that they'll make you harder to hug.

I'm recycling my Zatanna costume tomorrow, and Saturday will be the public debut of my Melody costume!

Haven't made up my mind about Sunday yet.

I won't be there tonight.

I don't think we'll be there tonight either. I can't wait to see your Melody costume! Not going to reprise Alice? You looked hawt at Halloween.

I did, didn't I? But Alice isn't really in-theme for Frolicon, don't you think? Even Melody is pushing it, but since I've finally gotten the costume, I want to take my first opportunity to wear it.

You totally did. And sure Alice would be in theme. Hot babe, Frolicon, yup. Why wouldn't it be?

Perhaps Sunday, then. I've a range of options for Sunday.

Something corset-y ... You look fantastic in a corset!

Aw, thank you! And definitely, something corset-y is a given. Conventions are pretty much the only opportunity I've got to get laced up these days, now that I've stopped LARPing.

I've never LARPed, you know ... We have enough people who are local ... Interested in playing dress-up for that sometime, writing and other commitments permitting? :D

Hopkin: Hope Hopkin continues to feel better and gets back onto hi normal eating schedule.

Kitty: Other wee beasties and furry fairy folk kin may being eating food from the the outdoor food dish. Our outdoor kitty food bowls draw many night visitors including skunks, rollie pollie raccoons and opossums.

Frolicon: Sounds like more fun than preparing for the Tax Man!

I hope that you, Foster_On_Film and Dude_The will all provide your loyal fans (and friends) reports and observations on Frolicon.

Actually, I kind of like the idea of visiting raccoons and opossums, as well as, of course, wild skunkies and fairy folk. Although I'm betting it's our kitty visitor. I've seen relatively few wild critters in these parts, which is odd considering how much flora there is. I got pretty excited about seeing a squirrel this morning as I was going out to the mailbox. We get birds aplenty, but I just haven't seen that many four-leggeds. It's kind of weird.

Actually, I'm betting a good part of it is that the previous owner of this house had a dog, and they put chicken wire beneath the fence around the backyard--I assume so their dog couldn't dig under the fence and get out. But it also has the effect that only animals who can jump, climb, or fly get in there--keeping out the trundlers.

I keep wanting to yoink up that chicken wire, because I want more fuzzy visitors, but well, you know how good we are at yard work in general . . .

The batteries for the camera are charging even now! And speaking of conventions and all, you're coming down for Dragon*Con this year aren't you? *nudge* And staying longer so we can actually, y'know, hang out and catch up this time? *wheedle wheedle*

Know what I mean, CANDID photographs. Er... you're too young to be a Python fan aren't you. Uh... pictures would be good. Sordid tales would be better. hehehe

"Dragon*Con this year aren't you?" Well, duh! Of course! I hope to negotiate staying for the whole shindig. It depends on my significant other. And it depends on if Dragon*con weekend doesn't conflicts with school.

I look forward to once again being mistaken for Devi Snively's husband by people named Patrick.

I'm going to have to agree on the other critters possibly munching on the cat's food. If the kitty can make it into the back yard I bet other furries can as well.

I'm still amazed that you have so few outdoor visitors at your place. We know the squirrels in our back yard so well that we've actually named them all. Do you think that Hobkin's presence in the house may be frightening them away?

Actually, we've been feeding her at the front porch, so it's even more accessible to other wild beasties.

As I was saying to dean13, I'm betting a good part of it is that the previous owner of this house had a dog, and they put chicken wire beneath the fence around the backyard--I assume so their dog couldn't dig under the fence and get out. But it also has the effect that only animals who can jump, climb, or fly get in there--keeping out the trundlers. I'd love to see more critters wandering in our backyard.
