Mischief managed  
Had a knock on the door to day. Staggered from bed with my hair birdsnesty and a J shirt preserving my dignity (I am coming down with a cold and had spent the morning in bed), I peered out from behind the door to see a familiar face.

My friend and his partner have moved in next door! Hurrah!

In other news, the Monster kitten continues to pick up her favourite toys and bring them to my feet where she drops them and looks up at me with a hopeful expression until I toss them about for her to chase. I knew that letting her watch Lassie Come Home was a mistake.

Back to the fest writing!!

ETA: Leochi drew her! It's wonderful!

Yayes!

Except for the cold - :(

*sends tea and hot lemon toddies and soft aloe tissues*

Loki managed to commit the unforgivable tonight - he knocked the vase with the dozen long stemmed roses that my partner had given me (best apology he's managed for a while) off the cabinet in the living room - despite supervision and repeated suggestions that going near it would lead to kitty death. >.>

Two soggy bath towels, one damp antique print, one very damp carpet and rug later, I now have eleven long stemmed roses, and a completely unrepentant cat.

Whee! However, I am WRITING! OMG! *dies of shock*

I KNOW! You temptress, I have resisted reading your chapter due to the evil deadline of doom but you are my reward!

BAD Loki! I hope the print recovers, and am sorry about the rose. The girls have been very well behaved limiting their knowcking over to CDs and cards off shelves.

Cold means I am going to hold of visiting till next week, when flights are much cheaper and more available, too, and I won't be infecting your fair city. Thursday to Friday or Saturday, I think.

Thanks dear! I am very excited about the new neighbours.

Monnie is so funny, I must buy a new camera to replace my broken one as I feel the need to YouTube her. Oh I am lame ...

oh that's awesome that your friend is next door to you! good time, good times.

hey! maybe you should right a mary sue fic...when in your new neighbors knock on your door to say hi, and it turns out to be harry and draco? :P

what fest are you writing for this time? just so i can keep my eyes peeled, you know?

*hands you tissues*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 3rd, 2008 02:02 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the tissues! I have aloe vera ones, so not so bad. It's the AS/S fest, which has some good stuff up so far.

Can you imagine having Harry and Draco as your neighbours?

Brammers knew it was time to move when the eighth set of Death Eaters knocked on her door by mistake. After sending them next door, and listening for the defensive hexes, she waited for the musical knock that always heralded an apology.

This time it was Draco, with a cake. "Um, sorry about that, glad that no one was AK-ed. How are the kitties?"

My friend and his partner have moved in next door!

Aha! Your evil influence worked!

I had a rabbit that played fetch. ;)

I am trying to convince her that she wants to bring me books instead of fluffy cat toys. It is not working yet, I may need to spray them with catnip.

Ha! Your Slytherin cunning yields results! :D

Get well soon; I hope you manage to avoid the full-on cold. :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 3rd, 2008 01:37 pm (UTC)
Cheers, dear! I wish the brain was working better as I want to finish this damn story. Commenting on your last masterpiece is only one of the things I am behind on!

Hurrah for friends next door! And for estate agents who can take a hint :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 3rd, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
Exactly! I am very happy, they are quiet and older and pleasant. Now if only we could get rid of the evil bad musician students ...

Leochi rocks!

I love your kitten stories.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 5th, 2008 11:34 am (UTC)
She does!

The kittens are a wealth of hilarity, though Monster's insistence that she can hold on better to me if she has her claws out is beginning to make me look like an emo cutter ...
Ann: stewie!dracotsosh on June 3rd, 2008 07:01 pm (UTC)
I've heard of dogs behaving like cats, but never of cats behaving like dogs. Sounds so cute.
My cats are very possessive over their toys...

Good luck with the fest fic, and with getting rid of the cold!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on June 5th, 2008 11:46 am (UTC)
WHAT A GORGEOUS KITTEN!!!!!

I played that video the other night while I was brushing my teeth and the Monster kitten, who normally sits beside the sink splashing in the water, leapt down and ran around the bathroom looking for the kitten.

Yes, she also likes water. She really does think she is a puppy ...

Fest fic continues, cold is worse. Bleagh! But thanks for the well wishes and the amusement with the music!
