If you could shrink any animal down to miniature size and carry it around in your pocket, which animal would you choose?

Hello. I am a Margay, a nocturnal arboreal cat. I am little 'big' cat with a long useful tail and big innocent eyes. However, please do refrain from crossing me, because although I may look nice and cuddly, I am also capable of catching a monkey in its own habitat. That said, I do enjoy scritches behind the ear, mmm, yes, right there...purrpurr...

Meet the margay and a cranky crocus.Collapse )

My room officially looks more like an American college dorm room now. I set up a bed on the other side of my trunk so I've got the two beds (er, mattresses) foot-to-foot with the rainbow Harry-Potter-esque trunk between them to act as a desk. I've never had a real college-like roommate before, even if only for a week. This is going to be so weird. Hopefully fun. Especially since she can't sexpel me. (; (By that I mean that her boyfriend will still be in Massachusetts, not that we will be having any randy times.)

The only thing left in the room that needs some solid cleaning is my actual desk. That can wait for tomorrow.

Here's to hoping I can manage 6 hours sleep tonight, thus beating my previous nights of 5. When did I go back to high school?

And maybe I can convince my jetlagged friend that what she really, really wants once she's here with her baggage lugged up the two flights of stairs iiiiis...a nap. And then she can meet one of my friends.

The idea of 8am on a Saturday is so not appealing.

I have collected a Clover. We have taken a four-and-something hour nap.

And now for something completely different.

Last year I tried on Mark's leather jacket on a whim and everyone in the room told me I needed to get one. Then everyone in the house who had one brought theirs out (Roberts had two) and demanded I try them on. It was agreed upon that though I needed a leather jacket, I needed to be choosy about the cut and size (as I am of odd-or-pronounced-at-least shape and stature).

And who found a leather jacket of a unique cut in the correct cut in a charity shop for under £5? *Points to self with thumb.* This guy here!

Also inquired after a duvet (I gave Clover my only one) and the shop worker was SO PLEASED to sell off a double duvet to me for £2, suggesting that I safety pin it folded in half so I can fit it in my duvet cover (they're always quite roomy). So despite not having safety pins, it's all settled! I'll do my get-thee-self-in-the-duvet-cover dance to get the folded-over double snuggly inside.

Today's itinerary: (i) Clover's first full English breakfast with me and Hayley at the cafe; (ii) Hanging out and watching Grey's with me and Hayls, grinning over ridiculous drama; (iii) Regular hanging out - probably getting Clover's clothes in my rainbow trunk to help her sort everything out; (iv) Eventually going to the Granby tonight for some drinking and dancing, as Clover is now legal for the first time in her life. (:

Today is a day of accomplishments and adventure. And every day tends to be better with a nap. Eeeven though I dreamed that the car I was in with my friend turned into a shoe, sex toys were sold on a pool table in a mall and I called out Draco Malfoy on his shite using a mall computer. Odd dream.

I am getting Comfortable with my Southern friend...and with Clover. (;


We're off to the Granby for some lovely gay-gal dancing (gay for me, gal for her).

We both have new jackets/coats and it is fantaaaaabulouuuuus.

Clover: "You type so well! You type... magnificently!"

I should probably step away from the computer.

Clover: "I never know how to act at clubs. It's like, 'how long do I have to dance with you before you expect me to have sex with you? Because that would probably be a bad idea.'" ... "He said we could have threesomes."
K: "Oh! Why don't you?"
C: "I don't want him to be there! If I'm going with a lady why do I want him there? ...but I told him I'd consider it. :P"

Clover approves of this quotation.

And NOW it is time to LEAVE. :D Dance dance dance. Tonight I am going to be just a little bit (*holds index finger and thumb close together*), a liiittle bit, irresponsible. Because tomorrow and Monday are dissertation days. Today is for drinks and dance!
