Just got back from Sarah’s place. A relatively fun filled 3+ hours of watching Simpsons and the rest of “laugh out loud” Sunday (with the oh so serious “tobacco is wacko” ads interspersed) on Fox with random people and drinking… dew. But that wasn’t the most interesting part of the evening.

I am not much of an animal person. I’ve never had a pet, or been close to people who did. So it was kind of surprising when I sat down and one of her cats decided to curl up on my lap. Totally freaky (yes, I am new at this, my first “animal experience” as someone pointed out) at first, but I sort of liked it as time went by.

Then at random points of time during the evening, one of these two would just decide to jump up, get comfy on your lap for a bit, and then when something else catches their fancy, jump off and move towards it.

No, it’s not like this is going to make me run out and get a pet. It’s just, this I think will make me not freak out when animals get.. close. It’s a good thing I decided not to quit braving the cold and the dark trying to find her place with that old torn map.

I need a new map. I could get one, but this one’s so trusty. It has like all my favourite routes and places and other bits of information like people’s homes and numbers all marked out in some weird code only I can read. (Not that that’s something I did on purpose. It’s just, I don’t seem to write very clearly while moving, and most times I write on the map is when I’m moving.)

I need to get a whole lot of tape to fix this map.

It’s not entirely not nice just to hang out with other people. I should do it a bit more often.
