News from Gideon is that he’s already over his elderly love Fjord Perry. Now he has a new girlfriend.
I hear she’s terrifying.
(Note: I want them to have babies so baaaad….)
We celebrated Mikhail’s birthday with some new kitty toys.
And spent all afternoon watching them play.
I’m serious. Is this not literally the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?
Mikhail’s mate Nova couldn’t let him have all the fun.
Or Micky (right) and Daisy (left).
Cute cats are a work of art that you just can’t trap in a picture frame.
After a while, though, even watching the cats play became boring. I was longing for some company.
Fortunately, Evan was free.
“It’s so nice that you have friends!” Mom exclaimed. “Let’s all hang out together. Just treat me like one of the guys.”
“I don’t think that’s possible, Mom, for many reasons.”
So we ended up playing dominoes. Not exactly what I had in mind.
Evan does cut a striking figure.
“So, tell me about your life,” I said to Evan. I figured that could give me a better segue to get to know him better.
“It’s been a rough day,” he said.
“I started dating Kari Wonderland-Holton, and her dad kicked her out of the house.”
“What?” I said. “You realize you’re talking about my Uncle Christof? He kicked my cousin out of the house for dating you?”
“That’s what it looks like,” Evan agreed. “Actually, your mom is kind of hot too.”
“I don’t want to have this conversation.”
I changed the subject by getting up to get my groove on. There’s nothing like the string bass.
Evan glared at me.
“Why the long face?” I asked.
“You sound terrible,” Evan said.
“If you know music so well, why don’t you tell me how it’s done?” I said.
“All right, then, I will!” Evan said. He grabbed the guitar.
Dang. He really does know how to play.
“Great Watcher, you’re amazing!” I said.
“Sorry, I have to go to work now,” Evan said. He dropped the guitar and ran out of the house.
Wow, it his hard to get the time of day from this guy.
Also no mate for Franklin yet. This generation is turning out to be a real spouse challenge. I can’t seem to get either of the candidates to hang out with Franklin long enough for him to put the moves on them.
