A Day of Pets and Pork Goodness

Yesterday I was promised a Miao-chan awakening, and today it happened. Sort of. As it turns out Miao-chan makes a horrible alarm clock, entering my room and exploring long before even bothering to come over to my semi-sleeping form. When she did come over it was very sweet, with her pressing her soft, wet little nose to my mouth and cheek to make sure that I was breathing. After that no shits were given as she resumed exploring, and so I went back to that groggy in-between state before she checked on me once more and went on her way. I actually woke up a half hour later, coming upstairs to tell okaa-san that it didn’t work. Wah wah wah. My actually hope was that Miao-chan would just curl up n my futon and sleep with me but alas, dreams can’t always come true. Oh well.

We went out today to visit Chiro-chan (the first)’s grave, which was actually plotted out in an exclusively pet cemetery. I don’t think I’ve ever heard or seen one before in the States, so it was really nifty to see a whole space devoted to animals. We’re talking fancy stuff too, full on gravestones, fresh flowers, face plaques, and those are only some of the things. I said a little something for Bella-boo while I was there, and then we were on our way.

Post-graveyard was take 2 at Uniqlo this year, where they had even more sale stuff and otou-san ended up snoozing in the car after okaa-san and I lost ourselves in all the goods. Fancy new pants, hello and thank you. I swear, that place is a goldmine and I don’t know why I never go to the once at home. We came home to Miao-chan being uber cute, and doing what okaa-san called the ‘sexy pose’. Cats gone wild over here. Also my camera’s been doing some artsy crap lately so I think Miao-chan looks super snazzy in these pics. Check it.

After settling into blog updating, chatting with friends and more I got a very important piece of news. Well, I actually got it before shopping but it’s going down here. After all my visa stress I was emailed back by the office and guess who’s frickin’ approved for New Zealand as of last year?! I don’t know why the acceptance file slipped by me, or why it’s posted in such a not-easy manner, but oh dear cheezus is this a weight off my shoulder. Mr. Skynard I am indeed free as a bird now. A good, easy day. I’m going to bed very happy.
