Nope… not abducted by aliens… not being held against my will in a dirty shipping container somewhere in Gdansk… not languishing in a medically induced coma to overcome my perimenopause. I’ve just been taking some time off… well OK… maybe a WHOLE LOTTA time off. But now I’m back. With the afternoon off I’m bopping around the apartment doing a few chores and listening to music videos on Youtube while singing along. Sure… Ting-ting thinks mommy’s gone nutty, but then she’s known that since she arrived here at this wee lady’s apartment. 😉
Anywhoo… just encountered this particularly adorable cover of Shakira’s theme to the Disney hit “Zootopia” by Japanese pop starlet Ami Nakashima. What can I say? Sooooo darn cute! I’m thinkin’ this wee Catgirl’s got herself a new “lip-sync” for Halloween! Carolyn will just love this one, I’m thinking. Maybe if I can nail the Japanese lyrics, I can even get her to practice the English ones and we can do a duet together! Fun, fun, fun!!
Yep. I’m finally starting to feel a bit like my goofy fun loving self again, so now that I’m dipping my toes back here into the Litterbox, expect some more activity soon. Time to blow away the dust and shoo away the crickets and get things back to normal here at the ol’ Litterbox again. Till next time, “Meow, meow for now!”
Yep… It’s lil’ ol’ me again. I know… I made some real efforts to get more active last month during our “Thrilling Adventures!!” review marathon…. and I really, really wanted to keep the momentum rolling, but…. all my Gentle Visitors know just how scatterbrained and easily distracted I can get at times. Especially this time of year….. Yep that’s right. With the return of more seasonable weather, I’ve fallen victim to my usual bout of “Spring Fever”. However… with the way the temperatures keep veering wildly from freakishly chilly to almost summery warmth, it’s been anything but a typical Spring hereabouts. Me? I’ve been alternately full of boundless crazy energy and then hit with some serious blue bits of melancholy. Mood swings? Yep… Neko’s got ’em… ohhh… and a nasty Spring cold too. Dang it… 😷
But… a day to myself… (and a nose chock full of gooey snot…) has slowed me down enough to do at least a quick Diary post to remind my regular visitors that I’m still with you. So… if you wanna share some more of the details of my goofy Life, you know the drill by now…. 😉
Psst! This way for more!
… and that name is… Dora… “Dora the Explorer”. Ever wonder just what a big budget live action theatrical film could be if you based it on an educational children’s show targeting pre-schoolers? I certainly have. (No! Really!… I’m kinda goofy like that… ) Well wonder no more… She’s here and she’s ready to hike up her “big girl panties” and take on the nastiest global menaces out there in the name of adventure (Well… OK… the nastiest ones that can be the foes of an animated 7 year old girl…) with all her friends and the lovable characters you all remember…
She got her Map…. she’s got her backpack… and she’s ready to do some “Exploring”… proving once and for all, “Big” Adventures are for “Little” girls too!! 😉
Look out world… it’s Dora as you’ve never seen her before… Hehehehe!!
Dear goodness… but I could never imagined this was real in a million years… and I figured we needed a little “Intermission” laugh…
OMG!!! 2013 is here and already World Devastation has returned in the form of…. not zombies…. not Mayan Apocalypses… not even the economic collapse of the “Fiscal Cliff”… but in the properly terrifying (and awfully cute) form of the giant Kitty Kaiju, Catzilla!! He’s big, he’s cranky, and he wants his litterbox scooped NOW!!! Or else… Hehehehehe!!!
Quick!! Break out the Tender Vittles!! 😉
There are days… while surfing about the Web that I come across something that tickles my fancy and brings me back to memories of the days when I was just a wee lil’ girl, who more than anything in the whole wide world, wanted to be all “kung fu-y” and badass…. just like all those amazing women in the cheesy kung fu films that filled my Saturday afternoon TV watching.
Sure… there was always a Hero in those films….but the girls….. they looked just like me!! They had the same dark hair… the same eyes… the same tiny delicate build…. but nobody, and I mean nobody, ever messed with them (except the Evil villian of course… but then that’s his job, Hehehe!!). For a little Asian girl growing up in the US…. and the only Asian girl in my school at the time… these were potent images that always reminded me that I too, could one day grow up to be both exotic, pretty, as well as kick serious butt… just like the boys. (Maybe even better… 😉 )
In that spirit…. I was always a bit disappointed that I never did gain any of those crazy mad martial art skills, becoming instead a cook in my Grown-up years. Outside of some Tai Chi classes waaay back in college, I’ve never ever had the opportunity to study anything as amazing as that. Usually… except for a movie now and again… I almost forget the fanciful dreams of a little girl and her “Kung Fu Princess” aspirations…. But then…. along comes a cute, nifty lil’ cartoon to remind me that there are always possibilities that you can somehow manage to still be both…. 😉
