Like a lot of cat owners, I have a little laser toy for the cats to chase around. All four of them adore it immensely, and Jesse makes the most hysterical bootlegger's turns on the linoleum of the kitchen.

But poor Gidget. She wants to chase it so badly. Two things make that difficult.

A. the boys are much bigger than her and she doesn't have the kittenish bravery that Cinders has to just DIVE in there regardless of their pounces.
B. when she does manage to chase it, she can't play for more than a minute before she starts wheezing. (Kitty asthma.)

I just feel so bad for her. Sometimes I'll lead her into the bathroom with the laser so I can close the door and she can play without the others shoving her out of the way and she doesn't have to work as hard to chase it.

On the other hand, when she really gets into it, she's the fiercest hunter ever. XD So there's some adorableness on top to make up for her troubles.

There are a couple of workmen doing things to the driveway today. (Expanding it, I believe, but no one tells me anything. They could be disposing of red mercury for all I know.)

But anyhow. The cats, who like to be outside, do not like strangers. At all. So the way I knew that the workmen had returned to do more work was to see, one by one, the cats come shooting into the house. Like clowns out of a car. ZIP ZIP ZIP ZIP. I tell you, the Thunderbirds have nothing on my cats' formation and speed. XD

Might have slipped past in my post about being sick a little while ago, but that sickness, wherein I actually slept for about 48 hours, helped me to decide I should quit smoking. When I finally recovered enough to think about so much as moving, my taste buds were a bit on the fucked-up side, and a smoke was just nasty. Plus my lungs were shredded from all the coughing. So I halfway stopped. Cigarettes, at least.

Yesterday, I got a vape pen. The eliquid I bought has the lowest level of nicotine they offer (besides zero :) )and after a little bit of experimentation, I think I've got the process down for me. I'm not getting the huge CLOUDS that some vapers do, and I'll probably never be able to do tricks (never could do so much as a smoke ring with cigarette, either), but I'm getting a satisfactory hit.

I never inhaled very deeply on regular cigarettes in any case - I was looking for something to replace the habit and the oral fixation more than I wanted the nicotine (still some, but not a lot), and I think this just might do it for me.

On the other hand, I've learned very quickly that vaping is going to be a much slower process. Have to wait thirty seconds or so between inhales, because otherwise the pen heats up like noooooooobody's business, and I'd rather not burn myself. XD So no chainsmoking.

The pen I got is an all-in-one box kit (Joyetech Ego AIO), SUPER easy for beginners, and as advertised in my subject line, it lights up. In several colors. I changed mine to purple, BIG SURPRISE. XDXD

I'm enjoying this so far, and price-wise, it's going to be about half as cheap as cigarettes. Even if I blow through coils and eliquids at a remarkable rate, I'll still be ahead of the game. Next adventures will be testing different flavors and seeing what I like best out of it. Think I'll try something apple. XD

I am not dead, just started using twitter and most of the fandoms I'm "in" are mostly twitter based and I've been focusing on my art and writing a bit more.
I've been also modding a kink meme (it is pretty dead but I am trying)
