Yellow and purple -- complementary colors! Very nice.

Thanks. I wanted something that would show up while still allowing you to see the background (and read the square category).
Love the neon purple!
Tannat 11 months ago
lol thanks! It gives a nice contrast with the squares.

Thanks. :D

Wow, you're coming right along!
Tannat 10 months ago
lol I feel like I'm behind, actually. I think I'm about due for a called square to NOT be on my card. :)
Char's Horror Corner 10 months ago
Ha! I'm exactly the opposite-I've had a bunch that aren't on my card at all!
Tannat 10 months ago
So far I think I've had every single one. It's like they based the calls on my card!
I've had all of them so far, too.
Tannat 10 months ago
How's your card looking?
Eh. Two called and read. One in progress (though not yet called).
And I have today's call as well! This is funny.
Tannat 10 months ago
Me too! I noted it when I reposted this morning.
BrokenTune 10 months ago
Oh look, you're also really close to bingo!
Several, in fact!
Tannat 10 months ago
lol yes, but still not there.... :(
Fingers crossed you'll have one soon.

Btw, haven't your read your "Darkest London" book, too, already?
Tannat 10 months ago
Nope, although I've read lots of books that could be used to fill that square. I'm rereading the Peter Grant series via audiobook and although I'm running out of squares to count them towards, I still plan on counting The Furthest Station for Darkest London. I suppose I could change my mind though. Rereading the series was just a way to deal with the anticipation.
Ah, OK. And yes, it was the Aaronovitch that made me think so, of course.
Tannat 10 months ago
I might go through and count second reads towards some of the squares later on.
... or get a second card for the extras, as offered by MR?
Tannat 10 months ago
Nah. I don't think I'd want to swap out any of the squares. I can kind of see smaller doubled-up pumpkins working on my card...
That's a nice way to do it, too (with your sort of markers, that is :D).
Tannat 10 months ago
Yeah, well, not all of us have a Halloween-themed kitty to use. :)
Well, with the judicious application of dye you could get a whole lot of black fur I suppose ... but, nah. I wouldn't do that, either -- I suppose I'd value my eyesight a trifle too much. :~

I really do think tiny extra pumpkins would look nice on your card, though. Or whatever other markers it's now going to take ...
Tannat 10 months ago
Heh...I never told you about how the attempt at a bath went, did I? I had to take a shower afterward, and bathing didn't really happen. So you can just imagine dye....

Actually, if I could catch him mid-yawn, I might have a good photo, what with his now single fang...
Full frontal fang exposure! :D Not even black fur needed for that one.

Trying to bathe a cat? You're a more courageous woman than I am. I don't even want to imagine what your bathroom (and you yourself) looked like as a result! -- Teddy could probably use a good brush at this point, but we haven't progressed that far yet (he's still reluctant to permit human hands to approach him at all, and we're having a running debate over how long and where I am permitted to touch him after *he*'s been the one to cuddle up to me), so keeping his fur in shape is still strictly up to him at this point. Brushing him will have to wait a little longer ...
Tannat 10 months ago
It was necessary. His long fur and some medication contributed to a bit of a mess that he wasn't willing to let me clean with a cloth so I tried to dunk him...unsuccessfully. I wouldn't normally try.

The only way to keep my cat's fur in order is to brush him regularly, and even then it's a struggle. He has superfine long fur that mats at the blink of an eye.

I still have running debates with my cat over how long and where I am permitted to touch him. Fortunately, with only the one fang, it seems that he can't do quite as much damage as before, but it still hurts.
So I guess neither of our cats would necessarily win a "best lap cat" competition ... :D

And yes, I remember that photo you once posted. Fur like that without a brush -- unthinkable!
Tannat 10 months ago
No...Although he is a total suck. It's just that he demands to be petted on his own terms...
I'll take petting by brush if that means petting at all ...
Tannat 10 months ago
He lies down right beside me but not in my lap.

You're so close to Bingo!
Tannat 10 months ago
Just waiting for those calls... :)

Tannat 10 months ago
Indeed! Here's hoping the call tomorrow is in your favour!
Woohoo! Congratulations!!
Tannat 10 months ago
Thanks!
Char's Horror Corner 10 months ago

WooHoo! Congrats!
Tannat 10 months ago
Thanks!
"Monsters", and you'll have another one ...
Tannat 10 months ago
Assuming it gets called... Yes, I'm thinking of reading either my selection for Monsters or Chilling Children next.
... or "Aliens", if it comes to that (or did I miss that you already read that one?)
Tannat 10 months ago
Currently reading. Haven't finished yet.
