Carmelita Likes to T-Pose

Our pair of Siamese cat sisters are quite goofy and not a day goes by where they don’t make us laugh at their antics.  Carmelita has an odd habit of laying on her stomach in a manner where she appears to be hugging the ground.  (I like to call it T-posing, ha ha!)  I finally got some photos to show off her outrageous cuteness!

The title speaks for itself.  I started a Tumblr account not so very long ago.  It seems like a good place to talk more in-depth about whatever fandom I’m into at the moment (Psychonauts right now).  I don’t update super regularly, but my art already gets a lot more attention here than it does on Deviant Art, so that’s neat!  So if you guys want to see silly doodles and rambles and just general nonsense, then you can find the link here.

Mourning Doves Have Poor Planning Skills

Recently, Mother Duck noticed a bunch of twigs and various other plant scraps littering the corner of our patio, surrounding the base of one of the support beams for the pergola.  When she looked up, she found a pair of mourning doves trying in utter futility to build a nest.  Unfortunately, the space was simply too cramped and exposed for a nest to find purchase.  The little bird couple have since given up, but I took a few photos to commemorate the adorable event!

The Duck Dreams of Sun and Moon from FNAF: Security Breach

The night of February 25, 2022, I had a rather frightening dream where I was being hunted by the Sun and Moon animatronic from FNAF: Security Breach.  (It’s the same animatronic, but it changes depending on if the lights are on or not.)  I also had a dream where Dr. Loboto and Crispin from Psychonauts were pirates.  Loboto was the captain and Crispin was his trusty sidekick.  I don’t remember much aside from Crispin taking flippin’ forever to gather up some loose change!  I kind of wish that my sleeping brain had decided to focus more on the antics of Captain Loboto and First Mate Crispin, but alas, my night was occupied mostly with a killer animatronic instead.

Stickers and Finding the Motivation to Meet One’s Goals

For Christmas this year, Mother Duck received a lovely planner as a present from a friend at work.  She had no use for it, however, so she ended up giving it to me.  In the past, I used a spreadsheet that I had made into a calendar to organize all my daily tasks.  But it was just a bit inconvenient to use, and since it is so easy to move typed text to another day, I was less motivated to meet my goals.

The Duck Dreams of a Pet Octopus

The nights of February 17 and 18, I had a few more of my silly dreams that I wanted to write down.  In the first dream, I had yet another dream about Disneyland where the layout is totally wrong.  That day, we had watched a video where Carpetbagger (one of the Youtubers we often watch) was talking about his negative experience with the new Genie Plus app at the Disney parks.

The Duck Dreams of Donut Thieves

The night of 11/14/21, I had a dream about some sort of event I was attending. I was with a group of people, and I want to say it was similar to a Renaissance Festival, but not quite. There were several places selling donuts, but after we got a box of the scrumptious treats, someone was telling us that theft is super common here and to be careful.

Rosie and Carmen Get Bunk Beds

I recently realized that I hadn’t written about my dear Siamese kitties lately, Rosalina and Carmelita, and so this vile mistake must be corrected immediately.  It all revolves around a few photos I took recently, but for the sake of making this into a proper blog post, a little backstory is in order.  Let the padding commence!
