My recent absence has been from saying my goodbyes to tattooedsappho, who is moving, and then having meetings/photoshoots/moving discussions and finally moving with the Providence Housemates.

We all had to dress like ourselves for photos. You won't be able to guess what I brought.

Alright, so maybe you guessed; you may recognise the hat. That's all but one of us as one couldn't make it. I suppose I'll include my single portraits, too.

("Strike a McGonagall pose!" "I'm dressed like a punk!" "What, you don't think McGonagall was a punk when she was younger?!") Serious but about to break into a grin. The shirt says "a little bit sneaky" and has the Pink Panther. (My ringtone is also the Pink Panther.)

Uhoh. I've gone a bit silly.

Ah, there's me: smiling, rainbow-tinged, a bit sneaky, HP geek, braid, sister's hoodie, cane-totin'. This my picture up on the household's fanpage. (Yes, my new household has a FB fanpage; it's actually popular. I was previously an Honorary Member of a popular household; now I am a current housemate.)

All the stuff is moved here, but little is actually set up and organised, which is driving everyone crazy. (I was a painful mess and ultimately useless on moving day, unfortunately; I did keep people from panicking the night before.) I have my little purple room at the top of the stairs; it has a closet big enough that I should be able to fit my dresser in there without any issue. For the moment it's just my roll-up futon, a big bookcase, a little bookcase I yoinked from previous tenants (they left it downstairs), a little black table I hope to get rid of, and two leather cushions for seats. And a broomstick Casey gave me. (In the house, all females have hard c/k sounds--Casey, Cassia, Koree, Kiwi. We mix each other up all the time.)

I've also acquired a cat. Cassia and Zephyr's cat, Stubby (who was my FB profile pic for months), discovered my room when I left it open for a second to use the loo. He has since frequented it to bump heads with me, walk over my keyboard, knead at my bed, and flop on my stuff. I'm thinking I'll allow cats in when I'm here but keep my door closed when I'm not; I'd prefer not to be surprised by cat puke. Stubby's good, though. He's a weird cat; I like weird. He is currently sleeping on my hoodie about three inches from my left hand. D'awr.

Now I have to work on a speech for tomorrow and put proper clothes on so I can walk down to Providence Pride. Cassia is gluing down her eyebrows so she can be one of the Columbia's (Rocky Horror Show) on the parade float. I'm just going to meander around and watch the parade alone.

This is my life at this point. Tomorrow I've got church (after which I will read the speech for the minister leaving our congregation) and my grandparents are coming for Fathers' Day. I should be family-home for a while after that for some catching up--editing my writing, doing some more cleaning and sorting for my move, catching up on LJ, etc. Miss you all!

Nice post! Love the pictures, they remind me a bit of old times :-)
I have to admire your dress and its accessories. *g*

Good that you have a weird cat to curl up inches away from you -- not that non-weird cats can not curl up equally well and lovely :-)

Hope you'll have a great time with your housemates, your family and the parade!

Awwr, thank you. :D

There are 7 cats in this house (compared to 9 people+guests and a baby ferret) and all of them are pretty darn weird. :D I get visited by three of them whenever I leave my door open.

I am wickedly confused and wondrously curious about this housing situation. Please explain it to me. You're all roommates? Or are you performers of some kind? What? Tellll me. :)

We are all roommates. (: Many of us are performers. Most of the household performs in the Rocky Horror Picture Show midnight showings, shadowcasting the characters in front of the screen. They also occasionally do an episode of Firefly, the musical episode of Buffy, Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and Repo! the Genetic Soap Opera. Many of them have acted in the past. One of them dresses as Jack Sparrow and does gigs occasionally (birthday parties and such) since he's screen-accurate and excellent with the role.

So basically...we're a hodge-podge of creative folk all living together? It gets pretty exciting and a little exhausting sometimes. :P

Your last solo-photo is just so adorable <3 But WHERE the hack are you all posing on the first one... I hope it is not your new basement ;-) ???
So the household moved before you move in...?! Moving in will be the better part! To claim a new room.... like the cat did :-)

Thank you! And yes, alas, we were all posining in our basement. :P The boys love it and want to turn it into a nice-but-creepy area...the girls are not so into the idea as it seems mostly just expensive and unlikely to work. We already have two living rooms, so we should be set.

Yes, five of the people had to move out of an apartment across the street. The rest of us moved in or are moving in at our own pace; I bring a rucksack and occasionally a suitcase of stuff along each time I head over there. Now I'm at the point of having enough there to be settled in both places until I feel like moving all the way in.

When can I come over?!?!?! <3

Whenever you want! No, seriously, there are always guests at our house. It's ridiculous haha. There has been at least one guest every night that I've been there.

Hahaha Jeff's house is quite the same, it's rare we don't have a friend over.
