Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!
And wouldn’t you know it – I’m working. It’s 12:30am on Christmas Day, and instead of being at home in bed, I’m working from 12:30 – 8am. Sometimes I wonder about my state of mind… but then I remember that it looks good in my record, and my employers love me as a result. And I get paid lots of money, so that’s all good too.
My Christmas Day was earlier, on Christmas Eve. I had ‘xmas day’ with Penny, and we chilled out for the day. Waking up late, relaxed and took it easy. Then I went to buy a christmas present for myself. After that we went shopping for ‘christmas lunch’, with lots of nice food and nibblies and stuff. Didn’t get as much as I wanted, but it was all good anyway. What I wanted was extra nibblies that would taste nice but certainly make me put on weight. What we ended up with was excellent and healthy.
The christmas present for myself…
…was a kitten!
I went to a pet store (thanks Passionfruit for the tip) and got one for $50 (instead $165, which was the average price a couple weeks ago). I knew that the kitten I’d end up getting would be one that felt right, and it would ‘talk’ to me when I was in front of it. We went in and there was a very cute pale ginger and white kitten, which meowed when it saw me, rubbed itself against my finger and leapt at the cage and hung there for a moment as it looked at me. That was enough – I bought it. Most of the afternoon was spent watching and playing with the kitten, in and around lunch and an attempt to watch a movie (it was slow, so we turned it off to watch another time).It’s very affectionate when it’s not busy running around like a kitten and jumping onto everything and being very amusing to watch.
I’m trying to work out what to call it. Penny suggested Eve, because I got it on Christmas Eve. I like that, but I’m also open to another name if one comes along. I’ll give it a few days before I make a final decision.
Photos coming soon.
