Bye bye Birdie!!!

Fablo left last night and is now safe at home. Before she left, we had dinner with Danth. What a darling dude he is!! With all of you...BALTICON will be a *&%^*&-ing blast, no doubt! Lorraine wrote a song called, Race you to the Moon..FOREVER ago. It's on the Wild Queen album. Anyway, I loved it the first time I heard it and have been working on it ever since. Fablo says I might have time to sing it at Balticon. Yeah!!! Some songs just stick in your head the first time you hear them. Fablo and I are quite a pair. So many of us couldn't live without her. Me and my spider to start!!!

Speaking of Miss Fabulous saving the day..
I love spiders, but I hate what they eat (crickets). I went to the pet store to get a few of the evil fiends. Hey! It's better than feeding her baby mouseys. Oh DarlinG I couldn't do it. The sales guy couldn't understand how I could be afraid of crickets, but had no problem holding a 5 inch tarantula. When it was time to feed Cruella, Fablo saved the day (as usual)!!Who would believe an undead thing like me would hate crickets. Ewwwwww nasty! Dirty! Filthy! Crunchy when you step on them. So, Lorraine opened the cricket box and shook a few into the spider cage. (As I feared) one got out and was hopping all over the front room. I don't think Lorraine has ever seen me that grossed out. Poor Miles thought the world was ending. He laughed when he found out I was screaming on top of a chair over a lil' old cricket. Here's my rule:
If it's furry, I like it. Except Rhino beetles. They are cute too, thanks to watching a Bug's Life.

With me having an unset broken arm, Lorraine got a little taste of LA driving. All I could tell her was, "No one obeys the traffic laws. And if you do, you'll get reamed" For example:
The speed limit, turn signals, right of way, stop signs, and stopping at red lights jus to name a few. LA is truly another world.

So, now it's back to work. Kitty is producing a movie called, War in Heaven. Sounds like we will be filming some scenes in a month or two. Wehoooo! Yeah baby! Jehovah speaks! (that's me) I've got to practice speaking with a RADA accent... (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts) Think Peter O'Toole. Cause HONEY! There's NOTHING worse than an actor who speaks with a BAD English accent. Better to do it right or not at all. Lots of cool projects going on here in Hollyweird. As usual, I'll keep you posted.

Love with NO CRICKETS!

I think I look better next to you two lovely ladies. The eye is distracted away from me. hehehehe
Oooh, and I appear to be using my heat vision on the camera!

Ollalieberry wine? I'll have to google that! :-)

What kind of tarantula do you have, Malena? Alchemy wanted a Mexican Fire Legs, but she got a mouse-eating ball python instead. I hear tarantulas also eat mealy worms.

I am reading a book, "Lonesome Dove" by Larry McMurtry (on my list of favorite authors), and the cook in the book gets all the cowboys to eat and like fried crickets coated in molasses. Just be glad you don't have to eat them.

DANTH! What a nice group piccie!!

Yannow? We will all need to take a group piccie at Balticon. Probably at the party on Sunday night would be the best time b/c we will all be decked out and gorgeous!!

At 7:22 PM , Blogger Malena said...

yes yes yes we will! I will take lots of pics of our LaMies. Can't wait!
I had 2 ball pythons. They like luke warm baths btw. They are very tame too. I miss them. They would eat our Dogs so I had to settle on a rose hair tarantula. They are the most tame.

Malena, just don't come to Waco in September. It's mating season for crickets and they are everywhere, sometimes covering entire outside walls. :P They stink when they die enmasse, too.

Vanda:Ollalieberry wine is very good when it's served very cold. The only brand I've seen, or tried, is Chaucer's, who also make an excellent mead.

do you not know my cell phone ring is ALL CRICKETS?!!!?
the Chinese good luck creature.. ok, wait Mimi, can you check me on this, but it is what i thought..
i LOVE crickets, i have been known to buy them from the pet shop and let them loose in my house... not for the cats, but for their sweet song. Rethink the cricket, Mrs Teves, and by the way, I LOVED my reading. all those who Doubt, BELIEVE in this channeling goddess.
as for Danth, i sure Hope to see him manana...Jozie is Still not here, at 11"30 pm...oy!

Lolo, are you home safe??!
xooxxxoo Kitters.

Truly... I won't kill things... i cringe from having to be the instrument of death to insects... i actively avoid worms on sidewalks... I export giant and medium sized spiders which tend to scare my silly... I throw silverfish and other bugs out the window... and show general amnesty to small corner spiders... (all except for mosquitos which throng to me and must die) ... and what I have come to realize is that I most dislike the thought of bug-guts... not to mention that icky thought of killing things.... oh.. and the sound it makes, but that goes along with the horror in my soul at deciding when something will die.

live bouncy bugs though... in general they freak me out because I expect them to land in my hair or jump at my face... and then I end up squishing them...guts and all... entirely by accident... into my hair or onto my skin, etc... yech. ... so I can sympathize with your cricket-fear, the little things make horrible noises when you accidently squish them and they are terribly random in their choice of jumping direction.

but Kitty, I do agree with you... a cricket song can be a soothing melody.... and the movie sounds like fun.

Danth... so glad you have been having so much fun.... be careful in that traffic... I look forward to meeting you at Balticon.

and much looking forward to the music.

You hate crickets because they are crunchy when you step on them ?! How nazi are you ?


At 4:15 AM , Blogger vandaluna said...

Rose hair? Alchemy says they very in attitude so you can get a pet rock next to a more lively one. The fire legs is a docile one but they have a tendency to cast off alot of urticating hairs.

I agree with you Rubius...we rescue bugs and avoid worms. I found myself adoring the mouse we fed the snake. :-/

Gypsie moth mother used to step on them to see the green guts squirt out. I used to get soo upset. It wasn't for a couple years that I learned they destroy trees and one particularly bad year around 1986 when they deforested just about all the leaves that I realized she knew without knowing that the critters weren't good thing.

Best meade I've ever had is a brand from the UK called Lindesfarne. A friend had several bottles...yum!! I have never seen it here.

Although I love big spiders I couldn't ever have a pet I had to feed mice to. I could have a mouse, though, no problem.

The only time I've met a cricket was on holiday in Florida, and... we thought they were very cute. Though they did impede our twilight tennis a bit, because we couldn't bear to risk stepping on them (or the frogs which were also all over the court).

There aren't many native insects in Britain that are large enough so you can see their faces... though I like the big fluffy bumblebees that zoom around in spring. I can't kill anything either. I even expelled a wasp this morning rather than squash it.

Nice pic you three! I hope you had a great time! bugs....ugh. tho I don't kill them, I just avoid them as much as possible. spiders and snakes too, they all give me the heebie jeebies. shudder. I have a great respect for those who can not only touch them but have them for pets.

At 9:54 AM , Blogger Dan Guy said...

Not a fan of the cricket myself. Our house was infested with them when I was little and we lived in the middle of nowhere. They would crawl into the heating ducts, die, and bake. The smell of burnt cricket is a putrid thing, and would last all winter.

you must have had a tough time with the spider pit sceen from king kong with the giant crickets and all...was that Miles handy work?

Cute group photo:)

Spiders..*shudder* They can stay on the OTHER side of the glass, thank you very much. I didn't know you could feed mice to tarantulas though. I can see why you'd rather use crickets! I can deal with crickets, but they're still BUGS. And bugs are yucky. Especially when they are moths that kamikaze into my halogen lamp.

And Kitty has a movie coming up! Congratulations:)

I don't remember who brought up the mead butthe thought of it's making me thirsty.

The entire reason I had got pet mice was because I was interested in owning a snake and went to the pet store to see if I could bring myself to buy a mouse as *food*. I failed, and later went back and rescued 2 feeder mice, who then became the first of the "mousey endless" - Murphy and Del.

One of these days we'll have a bigger place and I'll have a room in which to keep mice without worrying about terrorizing with cats in too close proximity.

Don't think I'd be down with pet crickets, though I'm a little squeamish about feeding them to anything either (an old roommate had a lizard that ate crickets - I'd check the cage every couple of days and become slightly depressed when the cricket count went down).

Hi ladys.
Sherpa here and I just want to thank you both for the gifts too Laura. I don't think I have ever seen her so happy. And when my friends are happy so am I.
Fabulouse you ere an awsome hostes once again. Sorry I got a little lost. nothing compared to how lost I was on the way home, but it's the journey not the destination.
We have big plans for converganced and my little artistic one is very inspired right now. Cant wait for july.
Tak care lady's and I we will see you in july.

At 4:56 PM , Blogger vandaluna said...'re not coming to balticon?

Happy? Awesome!! We luvvvvs making people happy!! Happiness is like magic.

Oooh...must google chocolate spiders!

At 5:07 PM , Blogger Sherpa said...

No Balticon for me. Work is being troublesome so gonna save up the fun for convergance.

At 6:35 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

spent WAY too much money on beads today...trying to make up for my broken heart since the pidgeon that I tried to rescue had to be euthanized.

i am sorry to hear that you won't be attending balticon... I would have liked to meet you.

and I have to admit gypsy moth caterpillars and their nests scare me a condiderable amount... green goo... etc.

never tried meade... but I am particularly fond of white wine these days... (especially my parent's u-brew)

At 7:41 PM , Blogger Kitty Cat said...

ah, Rubius, you kind spirit. i am sorry to hear of your little patient, i know you did show this bird all the kindness in his/her last hours.

At 8:35 PM , Blogger vandaluna said...

Sherpa...sorry we won't get to meet you, too.

Rubius...beads are addictive! I bought one of those hot-set swarovski crystal setters today. :-) Ravyn is the bird queen. She is great with the critters. If you have any questions, she's a good one to ask. Sorry to hear about the bird.

At 9:46 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

Thank you for the kind words ladies.

nice to learn that about Ravyn, my mom is a bird lady as well. she is in charge of monitoring all the Bald Eagle nests in her area, hundreds of eagles, and she leads tours for birders in the area and organized the christmas bird count, etc.

I made the financial mistake of checking out a bead trade show today and relieved myself of much hard-earned cash, bringing home many semi-precous stones and crystals that I had wanted for a long time.

At 5:20 AM , Blogger K said...

Oh beady people... do you know about this site? They have the most beautiful stuff... I could spend a fortune there but I restrain myself. With difficulty.

At 7:37 AM , Blogger Rubius said...

those are pretty beads... thanks for the link, K.
