It's been an awful long time since my last entry here, and oh so much has happened. I hardly know where to begin!
I'm not sure if I mentioned it here before, but my cat Cloud had gone missing. We still have not been able to find him and no one has seen him. It's been months now. I don't think he's been hurt or anything. I honestly believe he has been catnapped, he was after all a very handsome cat. I am being totally serious, and maybe it's just denial, but I really do believe that someone has trapped him in their house and he can't escape. I just want to believe that he's ok. The house had been so sad and even Little Magic seemed forlorn. Well, about a week ago, my dude's brother adopted a little kitten and brought him to live with us. He's adorable as kittens always are, but I still can't stop thinking about my Cloudy. Every time I come home from work or come home from the grocery, I keep expecting him to pop out of the bushes. Sometimes we'd come home and he'd be sitting on the roof meowing and expecting us to pet him. I miss him and I hope he comes home, eventually.
So this is Loki getting to know Magic. Magic doesn't seem to mind him much. Loki is super fascinated by Magics tail. I guess it's nice to have a kitten around. When I see him, I can't help but smile and play with him. I took some video of him playing this morning. I used to have videos of Magic when he was a pup, but I didn't save them properly and now they are gone forever. So, I'm going to try and take as many photos and videos of Loki now while he's still small and playful.
Also during the last couple of months, we commissioned the lovely, Missy Kulik from Rancho Cocoa, to make us some Sci-Fi Caper buttons. They came out soooooo cute and we can't wait to be able to hand them out. Missy is so awesome and we love her cute works of art. She has an etsy store and you should totally go buy something. I personally like the mini note pads. I'm a list maker and I love paper, so I fully plan to buy the guitar girl notepad! (although, I'm too broke for stuff I want at the moment :|) Thanks again Missy and Raoul!
In other band news, we got booked for our first show in about three weeks. Needless to say, I am super excited and can't wait! Sadly though, I'm sick and my voice is all hoarse now. :( Yup, I can't even talk at this point, so I'm sipping as much tea and honey as I can. I won't let this prevent me from practicing though. I still have to get my keyboard playing down. Especially since our first gig is going to be on a bill with Calvin Johnson!! WHUTTT!? I know! Calvin Johnson is the founder of K Records and has played in bands like Beat Happening and The Halo Benders! When I told Sam about it, he thought I was lying haha. It's craziness. The bill so far is Calvin Johnson, Joey Casio (also from K records) and us. I think the girl who booked us, Samantha, is still looking for local acts too. As soon as she sends us the flyer I'll put it up. This also means we'll finally be able to give some of the buttons Missy made for us away. Yay! Well folks, I think this all I'm capable of writing at the moment. I'll be back with more updates. I'm sure of it.
