Commenting On the Comments...
I'm home!!! And it's getting COLDER here, going to be evil cold tomorrow. Way below zero, with hateful windchill.
No new hair today alas, have to wait another week, or so. Could have made it down fine, but back would not have been fun, way too much snow. Ah well, I still have HAIR, just not as much in as many colours as I wanted for the show...
Lots of comments to read thru with evening tea....
Wait. LOTS of comments to comment on. My replies, views and comments on these comments today could well be a new post! I'm so clever.
Adriana! Glad you are back, I figured you were out of town for the Holidays. Boss asked me if I had written you, and I did mention I had but you must be gone. He then said "The Endless are so good..." How's that for an endorsement? I did very much Get It about After The Gold Rush, again, really well done, and everything a cover ought to BE. An original version of the song. Is the cd not out yet? I had thought it was? Where are people getting it from, and when? It's beautiful to look at and wonderful dreams to listen to. (Fiends, you want this)
And on...Slink is definitely a word. And one of my favorites!
Pratchett, and Austen. Having troubles with both, but love the way they put words together, if that makes any sense. And I can't figure our WHAT is stopping me from reading them! Vexing it is, grievously vexing!
The Flash Girls third cd "Play Each Morning, Wild Queen" came from something someone, who can say who, wrote on my filing cabinet with word magnets....Emma and I just liked it. (speaking of covers, I seem to recall we paired A.A.Milne's Buckingham Palace with a fiddle tune, not exactly ART, mind you, but fun.)
Mistress, well done on getting the paper into the publisher! I am quite sure if you told me what the paper was about, I would have no idea, tho Dr. Score might, but well done none-the-less!
There, I think that covered replies to most of what I missed while hanging out with Tubes, I mean working today. Tube-wise, I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel. One more day ought to see most of it done.
And since it is going to be a long time before I at least get tired of talking about Magic, he is really starting to be interested in me! I hear him now, every time I come in, getting into position for pouncing should the toys come out. He has yet to eat while I am in there, but we have all the time there is.
I feel so good about him. He was a cat no one wanted. Some people felt sorry for him, but he was not a cat anyone wanted to take on, and there wasn't anyone else available to take him on, if they did. The shelter he ended up at refused him, saying they would never be able to adopt him, he had no chance.
He had the option of going to a sanctuary, and I am glad these places exist for Bengals who have no other option, so many are put down, but as he has NO claws, front or back and would have had to just be in a cage.
My decision last year, to make a difference, somehow, lead to this. To him on the way to being happy, loved, and loving in return. I saved him. And not just him, tho he was by far the worst off I have ever worked with. I am not trying to blow my own horn here and say "oh look at me! how wonderful I am!" but, just, when I decided to try and make a difference, I had no idea what MAKING a difference would do to me, and the way I am feeling now inside.
If you have anything you really want to try and do. DO it. You can't know how it will end up, but I can tell you one thing...
You will be loving the feeling.
Love and more Magic,
