Kat's visit: May 6 & 7 (drive to S.C., meet Sophia, take fantastic photos, drive back ALL BY MYSELF)


Sunday we drove allll the way to Myrtle Beach, about an 7-8 hour trip with all the mixups at the end (next time I am looking at the map and cutting out unnecessarily-complicated 'shortcuts,' hmph. Neither googlemaps nor mapquest was straightforward). By the time we got there the day was pretty much over, so we just had dinner and went to sleep. Monday we spent time with Sophia and the little girl she watches, Anna. Anna's a sweetheart, she seems so happy and free! ♥ Meeting her reminded me that it has been YEARS since I babysat. I love kids, how open they are and how they haven't been muddied and diluted by the world (if they have decent parents). I love how they aren't so cynical, as most adults are. They still see the magic! I think I'd like to get back into babysitting or nannying, since I definitely don't yet want my own kids.

Meeting Sophia was lovely -- she's a little angel. It's such a mind-twister to me how she and Kat look SO alike and yet SO different! I guess it's like Sophia is an angel and Kat is a faery -- both winged, magical, ethereal, so that it seems like they're the same when compared to general humankind, but when contrasted with each other, different in every way. heh. Kat is firmly childfree and Sophia is a nanny who adores her charges! Kat's quite separate from conventional life and Sophia's quite in it. So interesting! You'd think they'd argue all the time but I suppose they have learned how to balance with each other.

and now you get to see the amazing photos from the last day! (including the one that this fantasmagically cute icon came from :D) I loooooooooooooooooooooooove them!!!




Kat and Sophia with their matching Dells :-p


Sophia and Kat! Sophia took the ones of us sitting in the grass:

a great pic Kat took of my cat! :D


not from the visit, but included because it's a freaking miracle that I got a clear pic of Kanika!

annnnnnnd last but CERTAINLY NOT least, hairypits photos!!! :D yay for ladyfuzz! XD


hairy pits are sexy! *waggles eyebrows*


hairy pits are fun!


fuzzy friends are the best!

afterwards I drove all the way back by myself, and I've never driven even half that distance alone before, so I was quite nervous! It didn't help matters that I had baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarely enough gas money to make it! but I did it, and was quite pleased with myself. yay me! Two years ago I would never have been able to do it.

sounds: Laika: "Black Cat Bone"

thank you so much!

I've known her about 2.5 years on LJ, but this was my first time meeting her in person :D so fantastic! It felt so completely natural and comfortable.

Kanika graciously thanks you, but says that she would never use the computer, though she might occasionally watch if something particularly interesting is playing on the monitor. ;-)

also, I added some photos I had forgotten, so come back and see! :D

And I love your cat. I love black cats, as evidenced by me having three of the cutie pies.
