For those About to Rock...

Copying directly from [livejournal.com profile] nancyblue, because she said it so eloquently:

"In that spirit, [livejournal.com profile] roadriverrail, [livejournal.com profile] dixiemouse, [livejournal.com profile] girlpurple, I, and a couple of others have declared 2010 "Year of the Rock Star".This isn't a project just about meeting goals and having accomplishments, it's about embracing our shiny and our fearlessness,being powerful and visible. It's also about dreaming big and living large, because if not now, when? It's also a project about image and glamour, which are important tools in one's arsenal. ... ALSO, let's continue to Reclaim LJ as a place of genuinely sharing ourselves. Let's write, connect and support each other."

Yeah, that.

My list of goals will be posted soon, along with backing information about why I've chosen them / what they signify to me.
But first, it's time for a bit of housekeeping in support of Reclaiming LJ and making this a more personal, genuine space for sharing and honestly connecting.

Friends list purge will start after this post. Lurkers and those "tidied" who wish to remain, feel free to leave a comment here and I'll likely add you back. I expect the majority of people I remove to be the folks who haven't posted in awhile, or people I only vaguely know.

Meet the Fosters...

This post is mostly for [livejournal.com profile] dixiemouse and the purpose of pimpin' kittins, but hey, kittens! Who couldn't use a dose of purry feline cuteness?




Here we have Mimi, Courtney, Coco, and Roger, in that order.

In order of adoptability:

1. Roger is the big gray tuxedo boy. He has a HUGE purr motor and a high play drive. He's ready to be adopted into a forever home where he can jump and play for hours on end. Roger has this *adorable* habit of cocking his head to one side when he's listening to you.

2. Coco is an unusual gray/rose tortie. She's still a bit people-shy, but is coming out of her shell nicely. She and Roger have been shown at their local vet and are dealing well with the hubbub there.

3. Mimi's long coat is silky soft and the gray smudge on her nose is adorable. She's learning about purring and playing; she'll be living in my office for the next couple week and should be ready for her forever home by early January.

4. Courtney's the shy girl in the gorgeous silver/grey coat. You'll find her tucking her nose into elbow crooks and hiding her face whenever possible. Of the four, she needs the most work - her current "I am so passive I'm a limp noodle in your lap" isn't really appropriate for a young kitten.
