one of the women i work with is having a night out on the town tonight in honor of her birthday. i have bought a new dress, a ridiculous hot pink pair of tights, and made a necklace to go with the whole thing. i so rarely get dolled up, that on occasions like this it's fun to spend the day just preparing. you know, hair in rag curlers, nails done, lipsticks considered (and always vetoed in favor of a lip stain because i won't wear it off as quickly), naps taken and big glasses of water ingested. just in case. i don't plan on getting silly, but you never know. in any case, i'm looking forward to the glam part of tonight, which i think stems from the fact that lately i've been watching a lot of videos of drags queens. jinkx monsoon, in particular, i am in love with. she's so thoughtful and articulate and lovely, and then she opens her mouth and sings! i find myself totally smitten. in honor of her ability to go from adorable boy to glamorous woman, i will put on eyeliner tonight, i will push the girls up in a good bra, and i will enjoy putting on a hyper-feminine costume.

it's not all kitten fun times around here, though. school is winding down for the girlchild, and there's a more than good chance summer school is in her future. i have a lot of anxiety about her starting high school in the fall, but i can only focus on now, so i try to keep the worry to a minimum. as if trying to do that ever works. the boychik has a job, and i think a new girl he's hanging out with. he tried to convince me he went to see a will/jaden smith movie by himself this afternoon. do i look retarded?! some plants died in my garden (i planted them too early) but luckily it's only really getting warm now so i can just plant some more. new job and life stress is making my eczema just blossom (hoo-fucking-ray!), but i figure itchy is okay. i can handle itchy. overall, things are good but busy, and it will be awesome when these boys figure out pooping outside. litter boxes: making rooms smell like pee since forever.

|they loved the girlchild right away|
we have their names kind of tentatively picked out. i've always liked the name vincent for a black cat because he can be named after vince noir and vincent price that way. and we can call him "vincey princey."the girlchild likes the name tali, and the kitten with the curly tail will likely be named that. it's hard to pick out the right cat name! so we're taking our time. their names may change, we'll see.
