Just rewound and watched a Taco Bell commercial three times to confirm that it features Saga cosplayers (and credits the creators, Brian K Vaughn and Fiona Staples)

Well, I guess this was bound to happen sooner or later... Pudding found one of my hand-knit socks, carried it across the room and then wrestled and bit through the cuff.

I found a wee friend while leaf-raking and it has immeasurably improved my mood. I think it might be a red-backed salamander, which is apparently a kind of lungless amphibian??

October 31: Licorice loves her new Ensorcellment hat (size M, pattern by Hunter Hammersen)!

Have a safe and happy Halloween, and always supervise your pets when they play with toys and costumes!

I'm so glad we adopted Licorice. Huge thanks to North East Animal Shelter and the organization in Georgia that rescued her, plus the foster family who helped her blossom into such a sweet girl!

And thank you, Licorice, for choosing us...

October 23: Licorice has a new scratching pad! Pudding is also allowed to use it sometimes

I have just today found out about the Takarazuka all-female revue stage plays (musicals??) of City Hunter and Lupin the 3rd and am feeling some kind of way

October 20: Licorice and Pudding were allowed into the home office today, and Licorice made herself quite at home.

It is officially that time of year when dozens of ladybugs/ladybirds/Asian lady beetles swarm our house and attempt to find a way in.
