February is almost gone. It’s still cold for the most part hereabouts… and now along with that misery, this wee Catgirl is being visited by Winter’s retarded cousin, Slush, every now and again as the temperatures begin that crazy see-saw dance between “stupidly bitter cold” and “never quite warm enough”. Goodness how I truly hate this season with every precious bit of this Catgirl’s heart… Brrrrr!!! .
As you Gentle Visitors might have noticed, my New Year’s resolution to post at least twice a week from now on crashed and burned last week just over a month into 2014… as somehow, deep in my heart, I knew it would. D’ohhh!!
As always, it’s my hectic busy “Real World” stuff, constantly stealing me away from the cozy relaxing confines of my Litterbox that are to blame. But… as it’s finally my day off after a solid week at the restaurant, I thought I might try to get back on track with a Diary update for those of you wondering just what this wee lady’s been up to of late. So… if you are up for it, by all means “Read On” and find out just what I’ve been doing with myself these days.
Well, Valentines Day was the biggest event to happen to yours truly last week… and although I really had soooo wanted to spend it with Carolyn celebrating our anniversary, this year that just wasn’t to be. Nope. Like almost all holidays, Valentines Day is big in the restaurant business, and having been lucky enough to manage to get away for the last couple of them I suppose it’s karma that I’d end up having to work this time out. For real this time…. Although when I told Carolyn we’d have to make other arrangements for our own personal celebrations this year, she naturally thought her super sneaky fiancé was trying to set her up for a big ol’ surprise again. “What? Moi? Sneaky romantic ninja Catgirl that I am?”
Still. I wouldn’t be much of a girlfriend if I didn’t at least try to make my sweetie happy on our anniversary, so on the days leading up to it, I focused myself on surprising her in oodles of little ways to make up for the big day itself. And, I am… if nothing else… all about the romance of the holiday.
So… starting a week in advance, Ninja Catgirl Neko began leaving little gifts for her sweetie, hidden here and there for her to find. Crazy lil’ gifts like Hershey’s kisses in her shoes…. (and that’s a romantic gesture always sure to get a giggle….), candy hearts in her pockets and purse, and tiny little gift boxes squirreled away in some of the most unlikely places with romantically sweet extras for my one-and-only to let her know she’s always in both my heart and thoughts.
Unlikely places? Yep. Like the cute earrings I slipped into her laptop bag so she’d find them at work. The single rose blossom she found in her box of corn flakes one morning. Or the flirty romantic note I taped inside the little gas hatch of her car. (That one nearly misfired…. She usually pumps her own fuel at the gas station, but of course the one time I get super silly like this she goes “full service” to avoid the crappy weather and has to get handed the note by a very amused station attendant… )
I think the best one though, was the tiny box I managed to sneak into her desk drawer at the college especially so she’d find it the day before Valentines Day… Let me tell you… it really helps cultivating good will with all your significant others workmates… I recommend platters of homemade cookies. A few of those, and they’ll have absolutely no problem becoming willing co-conspirators in any crazy romantic gestures you might plan, like letting you into offices you most definitely weren’t supposed to be allowed into after hours to work your magic, Hehehe!! Sooooo darn naughty!! .
Now that particular box… that one was special. A gift box from Victoria’s Secret…. completely empty… except for a little note: “Sweetheart, one “Special Angel” will be counting the hours today and waiting to show you just exactly what was in this box tonight…. Love & Kisses.”
I just knew that would get her. With an afternoon away from work, I had the apartment all ready by the time she got home. The lights low… scented candles here and there… and some soft music on the stereo. Oh yes… and lil’ ol’ me wearing the most adorably silky pink lacy kimono nightie I could find at Victoria’s Secret. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in our time as a couple is that Carolyn loves the look and feel of sexy lingerie on me, and although I rarely indulge myself in wearing it on a regular basis, I do enjoy the flirty feeling of wearing it just for her now and again. This was most definitely one of those times.
Mmmmmm…. without getting toooo racy or going into things best left between lovers, let’s simply say that my Carolyn had an agonizingly long day at work before rushing home to get her final Valentines Day present a day early, one that I can assure you both of us enjoyed to the fullest. No wonder I like to think of our intimate play as “sexy fun time”…. Oh, yes indeed.
So we did have a nice Valentines Day after all, even if I did have to squeeze it in around work. All the extra flirty fun made my sweetie feel loved and appreciated and she’s been reciprocating with little gifts and tokens of her own ever since. A cute pair of earrings and a silver necklace and I also got the most lovely bouquet of pink roses delivered on Valentines day itself while I was at work. Sigh… I never, never want to lose these wonderfully romantic feelings we share together…
But… worry not, o’ Gentle Visitors… All these soft and gooey emotions aside, I do plan to try to get back to my Reviews again soon. Along with my love life, the last week has also been pretty good for me movie-wise. I’ve gotten quite a few packages of DVD from the far flung parts of the world. There’s the new hopping vampire film “Rigor Mortis”… a Finnish thriller “Syvälle Salattu”…. another Turkish horror goodie “Dabbe: Cin Çarpmasi”… a Thai horror film “The Second Sight”… the Korean pandemic thriller “The Flu”… as well as the Chinese action/comedy “Kick-Ass Girls”. And those are just the ones that have made it to me last week. This new week should have more Turkish stuff, a Spanish ghost story, and another big ol’ delivery from Malaysia making their way to my mailbox. So… if the “Movie Fairies” are kind to this lil’ Catgirl… pretty soon I’ll have a veritable butt-load of new Reviews for you all to read.
Till then, I wish all my Gentle Visitors well, and hope you all have as much love and luck in your lives as I have in mine these days. Till next time out, “Meow, Meow for now!!”
