Phantom Phriday Vol. 20

A bit late with today’s Phantom Phriday, but it’s still Friday, so on with the show!

Today we’re featuring Rio…Purrincess Rio. The once tiny calico is now large and in charge of the nekotachi and, of course, her peasants.

“I don’t know what you’re doing, peasant, but I don’t trust it.”


‘Rio has presented her belly. You know what to do.”


“What are you looking at, peasant? You don’t see Rio. Rio’s not spying on you or anything.”

Happy Friday! (what’s left of it, anyway!)

Phantom Phriday Vol. 19

Welcome to another edition of Phantom Phriday!
This week we’re popping in on the littlest poogie, Sogo. Sogo has taken over the downstairs as her domain (the ceiling to be exact), but occasionally she visits the upstairs.

“Who dares wake Sogo from her precious beauty sleep?”

I can’t resist the cute little toe beans…

“Toe beans? What are these toe beans you speak of?”

“We’ve been over this, peasant. No touching Sogo’s feet!”

“You want to keep these fingers, right?”

Eventually, she released my fingers from captivity and ordered me out of the room so she could sleep.

“That’s right. No coming back until Sogo says so.”

She’s a bossy little master calico, but she’s super lovey (and drooly) when you catch her in the right mood.

Have a happy Friday!

Pokémon Go Community Day

Last weekend my roommate and I went out to Fenton Park to attend the Pokémon Go Community Day festivities. It was fun and we even met up with some of our local raid buddies! Below is just a small portion of the ginormous crowd gathered to do a Kyogre raid. There were at least 100 people there, perhaps more, making it the biggest legendary raid I’ve taken part in.

To make it even better, it was a gorgeous day and it felt great to be outside without the piercing cold wind. Lately, it’s been freezing and not weather I like to be outside in, but last Saturday was a bit warmer and more autumn-like, the kind of weather I prefer. I actually had to take my hoodie off because it got a little too warm for it.

The next community day is on February 24th, so we’ll join in again! (As long as the weather isn’t crap, that is!)


Phantom Phriday Vol. 18

Welcome to the return of Phantom’s corner! His Greyness has been doing well over his long time off, still ornery as ever. He’s been waiting somewhat patiently for me to pick up my blog again, so without further delay..

“That’s enough chatter, minion. On with the show!”

Today, we’re going to check in on a moment in the day of Aya. Aya has decided to give the peasant some help in keeping her other peasant alive (in game, of course!).

“Peasant, what is this your doing?”

“You know what you’re not doing that you could be doing?”

“Petting Aya, that’s what!”

That’s all for today! Join us again next Friday!

Until then…

“Sogo sees you with her eyes, peasant.”

Long time, no update..


It’s been quite a while since I’ve updated, but I’ll be going back to making regular updates again. Things were a bit too up and down last year for me to focus on writing, but I do want to go back and write about the very good experiences I had before I forget too much and also the things that I’ll be looking forward to this year.

To anyone who checks this site, you might have noticed the URL change. That’s the result of me forgetting to renew my domain in a timely manner, though part of me had wanted to change it anyway. If you link back to me, please make sure to update the link and I do apologize for the trouble!

Day at the zoo


The weather has been a bit up and down here lately, mostly down being that it’s still winter, but near the end of January it was actually quite warm. So, since it was a nice day and Katie wanted to test out one of her new lenses, we headed out to the zoo.

First, we went to see one of my personal favorites – lemurs! Specifically, ring-tailed lemurs.

After those guys, we headed over to see the big cats. I didn’t get many photos of them though because it was quite crowded around their viewing areas. The next ones that I took the most pictures of were the red pandas.

Of course, one of them was sleeping, but even sleeping it was adorable.

Then it was off to another one of my favorites – Rockhopper Penguins!

This guy was posing for everyone.

Those are some of the best ones of the ones that I took, I think, but the rest are on my flickr.

Phantom Phriday Vol. 14


This week’s volume is cutting it close, but we managed to get it in before midnight! Tonight we are preparing to make our own cat food so that the cat crew can start their raw diets. They’re not handling the smell of raw chicken and not being able to eat it yet too well.


“What are you doing, human? Why does it smell good?”



“Is that…chicken?”


“Hand over the chicken and I wont shred your face in your sleep.”
