I managed to get quite a bit done today so I rewarded myself by having my candy apple back by the pool. (It was an "apple pie apple", with a layer of caramel, white chocolate, and some sugar/cinnamon. As therealsnape and I agreed, at least it had the apple inside, and thus had some redeeming value despite the ridiculous calorie value of the treat. But I'm on my last day of my holiday, dag nabbit, and I didn't let myself pig out on any other desserts throughout the week. An apple a day keeps the doctor away...)

lash_larue found a pair of Miss M's socks out by the pool. When she came inside, conversation turned to my not fitting them, and I immediately sensed a challenge to be accepted. I slipped into the little sock like Cinderella slipping into the glass slipper (but less straight and dressed up). She's the size I was in 8th grade and I'm not much taller now, so I'm not the least bit surprised that they fit. I'm now sliding around the house in Miss M's socks.

Lash and redbeargrl just left for dinner (I'm going to eat leftovers; it's bred into me) so I'm back in Crone Manor with just the Minerva hat keeping me company. I'm toying with the little wooden clog key-chains therealsnape brought (as proof that "we survived living in a house with a Dutchman") and making them kiss. Shoeslash.

I wonder what sorts of things I should get up to... (I really do need to get an "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good" icon one of these days.)

Guy just rang the doorbell to see if we wanted a big collection of steak and shrimp as part of a promo. Er, no thanks. We're off tomorrow and we have quite enough food as it, thank you!

Eh, who wants *healthy* treats when there is Graeter's and Lash's cheesecake and fresh raspberry sauce? *g*

I am so not shocked about the socks - she sheds them the way cats shed fur. Even when she was a baby, I couldn't keep a pair on her feet. Nor am I surprised that you fit into them. The two of you have fairy feet. Keep them if you wish to - there's no sense in sending something back that she'll only ditch at the first opportunity. :-D

Oh - and Miss M wanted me to tell you that she has scanned the drawing she made for you into her computer and is now doing a digital rendering, which she intends to do in full colour. Expect it soon. :-)

Missing you all so much!

I did not go for healthy this evening. I went for sweet-covered apple, chocolate-y things, and rum-'n'-coke... This is what happens when people aren't cooking for me any more. ;P (No, no, I promise to eat better things when I'm back on my own so you don't come and smack me with spaghetti or send your daughter to tickle me into oblivion.)

Ahahaha, I shall keep them! I'm still wearing them and have been slip-sliding around the house all evening; it's great fun. I myself tend to shed socks most at night, since I have two Sock Monsters in residence: one for the washer/dryer and one for my bed. It's always one sock at a time for each, though.

Oh oh oh! I'm in my seat hopping with excitement over the thought of that drawing! Digital art is often some of my favourite. (: I am absolutely all sorts of excited.

Does Miss M have any bands that she listens to that sing songs in English? Just out of curiosity.

I miss you both right back and I have no doubt at all that the others are as well. I already checked on Google maps how long it would take to get from my neck of the woods to yours.

(That was after I checked all comments from TRS to Lash on any fest masterlist, 2009 to now, that Lash follows. Not entirely conclusive, but I think I have an inclination; it's not quite solid enough to use it as my indicator though of course I didn't do any statistics after rum.

No dang-nabbit I am not a Ravenclaw.)

No dang-nabbit I am not a Ravenclaw.) Oh, yes you aaaaarrrrrrrrre! *g*

I shall ask Miss M about the bands tomorrow. The only one I know of for sure is Owl City, because I bought that CD for her at her request.

Oh, yes you aaaaarrrrrrrrre! *g*
It makes me so very happy that I can now completely hear and see that happening in my head, even if you are trying to make me into the next Luna Lovegood.

Oh! I can work with Owl City--but of course knowing others is always useful, too. (:

(Scratch that. Of course I'm not 'working with' anything because I'm never ever up to something.)

Suppose I'd better head to bed since all the others have done that. I did manage to sleep around midnight throughout the holiday, but I'm still not quite at the point of being able to fall asleep before 11.30...

(After super-belatedly replying to all the Samhain Smut comments, this icon seems especially naughty.)

Check out the comments to Lash's last Crone Manor post.

Ahhah! Yes, I was correct; I'm glad my research didn't lead me astray. (: You do have some wonderful icons, too! (I searched through them as part of my research, you understand.)
