It’s another odd day off for me, I usually never get Fridays away from work…. So what does your favorite Catgirl wake up to this morning? I wish it could have been a fragrant rose or some other sweet token of love from my dear Carolyn, but noooooo!!
Instead, when my bleary eyes open, perched on my pillow mere inches away amid a few specks of blood was the mangled corpse of a mouse all suitably displayed for me by the fuzzy lil’ “serial killer” I live with, Goober. Ewwwwww!!!!! Not exactly the thing you want before that first cup of steamy coffee in the morning….. trust me.
He meant well… he really… really did…. and after all it’s supposed to be quite the token of affection for a cat to hunt for you and bring home these lil’ tidbits, but now my pillow is in the trash… my bed linens and blankets downstairs in the laundry and Goober’s lil “present” all wrapped up in the pillowcase and taken waaaaay down to the dumpster. I’ve got this crawly, nasty, goose pimply feeling that even my overlong shower this morning hasn’t managed to fix.
So it’s off to the bank this morning to deposit my paycheck, and then a trip to the store to buy new pillows and whatnot…. (I wont sleep well till I do….. I’m soooo grossed out!!) The day though, is sunny and warm, and so I’ll probably waste it all just enjoying myself and buying the fixings for a wonderful dinner to surprise Carolyn with when she shows up tonight…. which I just know she’ll do. She’s making the long commute nearly 3 or 4 days a week lately…. thank goodness gas prices have fallen back to reasonable levels.
I have to show her how much her commitment means to me, sooooo……….. I’ve got one other truly important task I want to do today. I’m going to get another key to the apartment made…. just for her. In the 10 some odd years and at least two other relationships I’ve had while I’ve lived here, nobody else has ever had a key….. even to stop by and feed Goober or something like that. I want Carolyn to know that this isn’t just “my place” anymore….. it’s “our place” now. Heck…. she’s got a couple of changes of clothing in the closet now, some of her favorite foods in the refrigerator, a toothbrush in the bathroom…. and I even found a missing pair of her panties behind the couch where naughty Goober must have dragged them away to last week.
Yep…. seems my life is so full these days…. I hope you all don’t mind the early “Diary” update, but Goober’s lil “gift” just screamed “Write about me, Miyuki!! I did good!! Tell everybody!!” (Mind you… that’s loosely translated from the original “cat-speak”….. Hehehehe!!) He’s such a goofy murderously sweet lil’ bugger…. I guess there’s gonna have to be a new catnip mousie by his bowl tonight….
Hopefully, I’ll get the opportunity to write some more on another Review later this afternoon when I get back from shopping, but don’t hold me to it…. Till then, “Meow,meow for now!!”
