a taste of adventure

I'm taking care of a friend's pets and they live in a more rural setting than I'm used to. last night the dogs kept barking at something I couldn't find. it was only as I was going to bed that I heard the coyote howling. at this point I leaped out of bed grabbed a flashlight and a sword, jammed my feet into my shoes and went outside to investigate. the 'yote was too far away to be a danger to the animals that had been placed in my care but I still stood out in that field for a good 30 mins. snarling and gripping that sword tight just to be sure it didn't come closer.

Vincent here, I'd like to sit down and get serious for a moment. you know, I used to be an ally cat, I had to fight for my meals and just to prove to everyone else that I deserved to live it was a rough way to live. I was good at it I was the toughest cat on the streets. so when I got stuck in the slammer and eventually adopted by Rin I fought back I felt that old familiar need to prove how tough I was. I slowly realised that that wasn't necessary and I've found that I've come to really like having a home, people that care about me. you know that feeling? it's a good one.

slander and lies

look mousebreath! you had come inside the house and left your "snack" on the porch so don't go telling everyone that I took it away from you before you were done.

I don't believe it!

I went to all the trouble to catch me a mouse, a little bit of fresh meat in the diet you know? and what does Rin do? SHE THROWS IT AWAY!!!!!!!! I wasn't even finished with it and she just tossed it in the garbage can and it wasn't even one of thous cans that you can just knock over for a quick snack no this thing has a lid and everything!

so I've been watching a lot of old shows I used to love as a kid on youtube lately. like Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog and Skeleton Warriors. now let's start with mystic knights when I watched this show in the fourth grade my favorite character was the leader Rohan, but watching it now I find him moody and kind of emo. and a character that I found boring back then, princess Deirdre interests me now that I notice all the subtleties of her character.

and Skeleton Warriors is far cheesier that I ever remember it being I could have sworn it was a much darker show. but as kids me and my siblings really liked the goofy skeleton, Dagger, yes that's his name, Dagger. but now he comes of as only kind of retarded.

I find it interesting that I can enjoy the same exact shows but for completely different reasons.

in the grave

I know I've been pretty silent for the past couple of weeks. the truth is I died, was resurrected by a wizard, then killed again by my sister's evil genius dog, Jarvis, without her knowing about it. Now, I'm sure you're all out there wondering how I managed to come back to life a second time, well let's just say it involved three rolls of duct tape and a pair of old windshield wipers and let's leave it at that.

It's the little things

I've had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. I guess all the grumpy people at work got in the way. so a couple of days ago I went for a little walk to look at decorations around my neighborhood. before I left my mother told me to go to a specific house 'cause it was spectacular and I should really see it. so I went on my walk and I saw the house that Ma had mentioned and it really was amazing the folks in that house did a great job. but it was another house far later in my journey that gave me the joy I was hoping to find. all that was at this house were some lights and a 2-D display of a train and it reminded me of some small plastic trains that we used to decorate our light switches as kids. and it reminded me of all the Christmas eves we'd spent at my grandmothers house. at this point it struck me yet again that it's the small things that are important during this season.
