Today a friend sent me a link to a livestream of kittens. I'm not sure why he did this, except as part of a nefarious plan to keep me from ever getting work done ever again. Seriously, this has been very detrimental to the amount of things I have done today. Because, kittens. You watch them. You'll see. They are so, so adorable. Especially when their mommy comes in to feed them.
That's really the most exciting news I have for you all. Today it's very rainy, but not very cold, and I had a spa treatment, and now I'm feeling very relaxed (the kitties are helping that, too). I've almost finished The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There, and so far I deem it a very worthy sequel. Just gorgeous descriptions of places September visits and a strong, un-contrived plot-- I'm especially a fan of the Duke of Tea and the Vicereine of Coffee living in their teapot palace. I might be finished with it if it weren't for the kitties on the livestream. The book has made me want to go on a quest, though. I think very often that I would be good at questing, and that a quest might be just the thing for me, but who really goes on quests anymore-- at least, the kind that involve a lot of walking and rationing food until you find a village with a tavern or stumble upon a very large feast in an enchanted grove? And at the end of your quest, you've accomplished something really worthwhile that saves the lives of an entire world or something else noble like that. Sigh. I'm not sure those quests exist anymore, really. I like to think that enchanted groves might exist still, though.
Ok, go watch kittens. You know you want to.
(No, I don't know who set up this livestream, and they have not asked me to promote it)
