unpackity packity pack  

Today was a day of a lot of unpacking and not nearly enough Aberdeen. Next year, by God, we are not going to be moving house and I’m not going to be under a deadline from hell when she comes to this side of the world. But having her company did make unpacking less of a drag, and after she left it occurred to me that we’d found the stereo, so I plugged it in and had music to work to. Got a lot of the books unpacked, which *hugely* reduced the overwhelmingness of the Room O’ Boxes. So I’m feeling like a Productive Kit today, although my stress level is apparently at a peak, because I have a record four canker sores. This is not best. :/

Oh, Productive Kit reminds me, I finally figured out what name I ought to give Irish people if I want them to call me something more or less like “Catie”: Kitty. I could live with Kitty. That’d be okay. After fifteen years of responding to “Kit”, after all, I’m pretty sure I’d remember to answer to “Kitty”. Its one problem, of course, is that I look nothing like Shadowcat… :)

Emily and I took a taxi home yesterday. The cabbie said, “Do ye know where the estate is, then?” I allowed as how I did, and he said, “So I won’t be driving ye all around the town,” which made us both laugh. :)

I have gotten the cover for Chance #1. You guys are gonna *die*. *smug*

So tell you what - you become shadowcat aka Kitty, I'll dye my hair with a white strip since I'm the right race at least to be Rogue (as opposed to Storm) and you can give me all your Rogue statues.......

did Ted arrive eventually? Yet?

The cabbie makes me laugh. I love cabbies in other countries; I've had the best time chatting up London and York cabbies.

I have to tell you, by the way, that I was stupidly pleased when I checked my library's online system for Jim Butcher's latest in hardback; the library didn't have it available but cheerfully offered me your latest book as something I might want instead. HA! Good library! Have a cookie. Keep telling people about your books!

*laughs*! Awesome! VERY good library! I too am stupidly pleased! :)

Indeedie. And, ah, I have sort of moved books around to make yours more prominent in the local Borders. I do that for Jim's books too; James Rollins/Clemens is a friend. :)

Yes, I'm mercenary. WHAT OF IT? :)
