A Very Merry Gaiman Capote to You

Oh, hai. I hope you all are enjoying the holidays. I’m stoked, because we get two weekends this week. Mom had yesterday and today off, so we got to get some good snuggles in. And yesterday, little c™ helped mom unload the Christmas groceries, in hopes there was tuna to be had.


There was!


We also listened to Neil Gaiman read A Christmas Carol yesterday. Well, I listened to part of it. Little c™ kept hissing at Scrooge, so mom had to listen to the rest of the broadcast on her headphones.

In case you’d like to listen to the entire NYPL broadcast, here’s the link. Just don’t play it when c™ is around, or the hisses will overpower the reading.

We all listened to Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory this morning. As you may recall, c™ and I are big fans of Uncle Truman, so it was a real treat to listen to him read this holiday classic. I fell asleep purring on mom’s chest, while c™ dozed off on his leopard print binky.


In case you want to listen to Capote read his holiday story, we’re sharing the link, which, I’m happy to report, is safe to play when c™ is around.

As you can imagine, we were excited about Santa’s arrival this week. Little c™ made a self-portrait, so Santa could find him easier.


I’m the one with the moustache.

And I made a pic of Santa, so he would know I was thinking of him.


Bring treats.

I’m happy to report our efforts paid off. We got some cool toys and yummy eats this year.

He even left a Christmas flower on the window sill for mom.


And Mama J™ says we shouldn’t close without giving our thanks to the baby Cheez-its, the real reason behind this whole 2-weekend week.


We love you baby Cheez-its.



The NaBloPoMos Are Coming!

Oh, hai. I’m super stoked today.

Mom just told me we were going to participate in this year’s NaBloPoMo. So each day in the month of November, we’ll be sharing our artwork and antics with you.


But enough about that. Today’s Halloween! You probably remember that I decided last month I was going to go as a zombie cat. Mom says she’s going as an undiscovered writer, and Little C is going as Grumpy Cat. He’s been practicing his hisses for weeks now. She thinks he’ll be great.


Mom’s been getting her spook on all week. She’s been nose-deep in Neil Gaiman novels, and tonight she’s going to watch Rocky Horror while passing out mini granola bars to the kids.


This past weekend mom was busy editing into the wee hours. Carl and I stayed close by, in case she needed help.

Oh, in case you were wondering about those African violets I was watching over, they’re doing great now.

Lil' C and I have been sending them lots of good juju.

Lil’ C and I have been sending them lots of good juju.

We’re going to sign off now. Wishing you the happiest of Halloweens, filled with lots of treats and the best juju you can find!

PS: Mom says if you’re still wondering what to be for Halloween, there’s always room for another sweet transvestite.

Just sayin’…
