So, I live in Canada now.

Wow. It’s been a while, and things have changed! I went from living in my parents basement with my husband, a cat, and a snail, to living in a 3rd floor apartment in Montreal, Canada, with my husband, 2 cats, and no snail.

Sadly, I had to leave Gandalf behind. It’s illegal for snails to cross state borders without an education permit, let alone international borders. They’re considered agricultural pests. I released him out into the nearby wilderness between neighborhoods.


I put him under a sunflower. Those are his favorite.

As we were moving in we met a nice lady on the floor above us who had rescue kittens in need of a home. We fostered them for a couple days to see if either would get along with Waltz, and one did! Hazel and Waltz hit it off immediately, no adjustment period, and they hang out and play happily.

Hazel also likes to chase things on the computer screen, especially when I’m playing Guildwars 2, but the mouse is her favorite. Gotta catch the little pointer thing!

Behold my new kitten. Such majesty, such grace. She’s a dork. Hazel chirps and squeaks and begs for pets on a regular basis. She also comes running whenever I start to sing, even if she’s napping.

Waltz remains as adorable and handsome as ever, and is very happy to have a friend. He was getting lonely before.

I also started updating my web comic! I’m plugging along writing the script and drawing pages. It’s exciting! I’ll tell you all about it soon, probably in my next post. I’ve got lots to tell you! Life, moving, Canada, comic, my cosplay & Salt Lake Comic Con 2015. So much! It’s exciting times. I promise I’ll post more now. I won’t promise how often, but expect things to become more regular. 🙂


waltz-ing with a rose

My Mary Kay Independent Sales Director gave us all roses for Valentines day.  A following morning had fantastic light, so I figured I’d take some reference pictures of it.  Waltz decided he had to help.  He loves trying to eat the green stuff on the plant.  I can’t have flowers while he’s around.  He’s the worst bee and knocks them over every time I turn around.

Here!  Have some pictures of my kitty with a rose.


Sniff sniff sniff, what’s the red part for?


Ah! The green stuff! Now THAT’S the ticket.




And one of just Waltz because I think he’s so cute. 🙂

the world behind



A couple months ago my dad finally hooked up the washer and dryer in my downstairs apartment.   In order to do that, he had to cut out a hole in the wall for the dryer vent.  The hole led to the utility room adjoining the wood shop Waltz is always trying to escape into, so of course he had to investigate.  It amused me.


Waltz sticking his head through the hole. This is what it looked like from inside. He’s all headless.


From behind the wall. It’s a strange world he’s never seen before.


He could have fit through if he’d tried, but this is as far as he went.

After his little investigation, the hole held no more interest and my dad and husband were able to get everything all fixed up without any help from the little fuzzy one.
