Isn't Captain Pretty?

My sister took a trip to Europe recently, and now that she's back home in sunny SoCal and her final exams are over, she had time to send me a few souvenirs. Cool stuff like a really cute hangbag with the British flag on it topping the list (and something I'm incredibly likely to shoot pics with for my site as soon as a match up an equally cute outfit). But it was the box of pastel tissue paper that my gifts arrived in that my cat Captain found to play that was the most adorable and worth sharing in photos on my blog asap! He loves getting *into* stuff so this box was perfect. He had a blast thrashing about the crinkled paper while my other two just barely lifted their heads up from their afternoon naps to see what was going on. I snapped these two pics before he got too carried away. Isn't he just so... Pretty! For being such a masculine cat, a big bully, a voracious eater, he's all cuddly sweet at times. Nice to have photographic documentation to look back on when I'm all mad that he's tried to chew TT's ear off, huh? (Oh, and don't feel too bad for old TT. This is just his karma for torturing Princess for years come back to haunt him.)

I think the cats have adapted better to their new surroundings than I have. They all have their favorite places to lounge and hide which is more than I can say, at times. ;) It was my being at home and awake during daylight hours today that reminded me that I need to be more *thankful* and *appreciative* that I can and do work at home. That it's even an option. Leaving my stripping career behind has been tough because it had become such a way of life for me, one that I enjoyed the majority of the time, but there are parts that I won't miss as much -- the vampire-like hours where I missed out on what my dayshift family, friends, and household were doing is one of them. I suppose that it's still possible that I *might* dance here in Seattle or maybe in Tacoma, but it's terribly unlikely at the moment. I've still not set one foot in a stripclub since we moved here and have no ideas about which ones are even close to what I'm used to with my dancer-friendly Memphis standards. I'm not going to trouble myself about it right now. Heck, I'm still too busy getting lost while driving around my new town! It's more important to me to do my best webmastering and my upcoming foot fetish site and to get in as much time private webcamming as is feasible for me and my bills, lol. Gotta keep the Captain and his sidekicks in kitty litter & Meow Mix after all.

Which reminds me, someone asked about Captain's Twitter. Yes, he's a cat with so much personality that he needed his own twitter! He doesn't make tweets everyday, but it is nice to get a fresh perpective on what's going on around here, so by all means follow him, and you'll have a cat happy to follow you. It's his twitter that I use to follow everyone's tweets by the by.

Members Updated: Feeling Tropical

Uh huh, if you haven't caught some of my most recent posts in my Twitter, then you wouldn't know that I've been burning up with the little heat wave that we've been experiencing the last few days here in the Pacific Northwest. I actually don't really *mind* when it's hot outside as long as I have the comforts of air-conditioning to retreat to when I'm done sweating. The big problem here is that that most apartment housing in this area of the country doesn't come with that particular luxury as most was built long before the global climate change phenomenon. Can you say, UGH.

So last weekend, we went out and purchased a small portable A/C unit that should hopefully help reduce brain-melt. I thought I could get away without running it today because it was overcast and a bit rainy but no such luck. It was muggy hot rain like they have in Memphis, lol. Color me flushed-red and unimpressed. Anyhoo, the expense of the new air-conditioner when we're still paying rent at the old place and the new one probably wasn't the greatest thing to be taking on, but I figure I can make it up by working harder since I've got a very minimal social life going on at the moment. Who needs friends when you've got three great cats and a freezer full of lime popsicles?

Onward and upward: Yes, I do have a fresh gallery of refreshing, tropical-inspired photos for members of to write about before my blog-a-phobia kicks back in. A plentiful set of 73 pictures of me doing a striptease out of my loungewear and tropical stripper bikini. It's *the last* set of pictures that my bf Justin shot of me, and so that's why I've been holding onto it for awhile. *Sigh* The warmer weather definitely made me remember it when I was trying to figure out what to post for members. That and I was rocking quite the tan last summer. When I was trying to figure out how best to categorize it, it didn't take me long to come to the logical conclusion that this is a pretty nice ass & barefoot set. Those bottoms are quite cheeky and my pretty French pedicure is shown off from several angles too. A special thanks goes out to Justin for snapping away to get these pics for me. :)
