    We had fun/"fun" both Caturday(Saturday) and today. Poor FeiLong was teased mercilessly at the drag show by those attendees that should know better and protesters across the street (Yoh let them know that they were "out of line" and took them down a notch or three.) Fukase joined in, feeling that he should've been invited to the "altercation" (he's always primed for a fight [:rolleyes:].) Hirato and the members of Circus Ship #2 started arresting the "victims" after Belinda let them know what was going on (she's quite helpful when needed.)

    Today an idjit followed the ladies to a women's restroom, earning him some well-deserved abrasions/contusions/fractures/etc. (courtesy of several ladies) before mall security arrested him (lucky for him Shigure didn't use her [in]famous shuriken...) We got to our appointment a tad late, but we called them at the mall to let them know where we were and why.

    Anyway, we rode on a new (to us) bus route, plus we got some "straight from the horse's mouth" information that we so dearly desired, courtesy of the bus driver. What was really interesting was that we were the only passengers on her particular bus, and we chatted with her off and on during the ride (we even helped the driver with a small dilemma that she had [a previous passenger had left her keys along with her bus pass/student ID on her bus, and we let the driver know where she could drop them off on campus].) The other passenger was waiting for her stuff at the layover on campus, and she (the passenger) was rather ecstatic that she got everything back. I hope that both the driver and the passenger take my advice about getting a large key ring just for bus passes/IDs that can fit over the wrist, keeping the lanyard for keys (no need to remove and/or bend down to scan anything, and any car/house/whatever keys will [mostly] stay around the neck.) Oh, and next week I'm going to let my doctor know about the route since there's another patient that she sees who lives on the east side near campus (three birds, one stone...)

    Oops, gotta go. I'm getting some rather "interesting" looks from several of "the clan". I'm going, I'm going. Sheesh. :rolleyes:

    Oops, you caught me practicing for next week.

    "What's next week?" you ask?

    Another block party for charity. The "talent" will be doing songs and the like, security's going to be tight and treats will be flying out of various freezers (including ice cream "tacos".) It'll coincide with finals, so everyone will have a performance in between exams.

    We also went grocery shopping (picked up some stuff to donate for the Hunger Task Force through the letter carriers this weekend.) Tuna in water, dry cereal, pasta, macaroni and cheese dinners, etc., are set beside the mailboxes in the front entrance (we "borrowed" a couple of carts so the entrance/exit won't be crowded to the point that it would interfere with emergency responders.) The most recent set of newbies were funny with the way that they selected their donations (we had to talk Gladiolus out of purchasing a case of Cup Noodles [he picked up a case of pasta and a case of tinned pasta sauce to go together instead].)

    Oops, gotta go. Kuma and Koru are looking at a couple of neighbors in a rather predatory manner...

    We went to a party earlier today, leaving Kuma, Koru and Betty with "Snake"'s snakes (the "guest of honor [a dog] wouldn't have wanted a bear, a melanistic jaguar or an Amur tiger at his party, much less several snakes.) "Snake" stayed with them, so they were well cared for during the party. We brought several pounds of fresh baby carrots, which were gratefully accepted by the host, along with contact information for the veterinarians (jic) and a few dog toys. Another neighbor brought what she called a whiskey cake, which was just an angel food cake that was split into three layers, filled with a whiskey-laced butter-laden filling and frosted with a whiskey-laced whipped cream (she couldn't understand why I declined it [allergies!].)

    We left after a while due to the fact that they turned on the television in the community room, switching on some stupid program that none of us were willing to sit through. I had to keep the yakuza and Triad members from putting a bullet through the screen, which was a real feat iykwim. Unfortunately, it was after the guest of honor bit a grand/kid of one of the residents (Ryouto took care of the kid while giving him a lecture I hope the kid remembers for the rest of his life.) There were several stitches involved on the boy's face and an altercation between the host and the kid's relative (Hirato dealt with that one with Asami backing him up.) Two Alpha males putting the kibosh on one stupid fight imho...

    School's winding down now, some of "the clan" are sitting through finals, and this is the last week that some of us are taking the express bus to our doctor's appointments. We'll still go on campus to pay for our bus passes, but we won't stick around as much.

    Oops, gotta go. Ryouto looks like he's going to give someone a "what for"...

    Oops, you caught me. We're winding down the charity block party, plus we've added several new 'members'. *scream*

    One of the newbies is a jiangshi, aka a "jumping zombie". Yes, you "heard" me right. I "said" zombie. I gotta figure out what he needs. :rolleyes: At least his companions are much easier to feed (one Bram Stoker-style vampire, two werewolves, a jack-o-lantern, a leanan sidhe, one demon, two {or is it three} humans, and several other nonhuman entities that "go bump in the night"/"urban legends".)

    Then there's the group from a different "universe of discourse" where books can be cursed tomes, but they eat normal food...

    Oh, everyone's coming in, soaked to the skin. Gotta get everyone warmed up without setting them on fire/burning them. Okay, who wants pizza waffles? Or would anyone prefer chocolate, since it's the Burlington Chocolate Festival? Oh, some of you want both?

    Ah, you caught me.

    Everyone's doing their best to observe the "six-foot barrier", but my neighbors aren't allowing them (both Kuma and Koru have to be restrained or there's going to be several stains [none from either the bear or the panther].) The only members of "the clan" that don't need to are the shinigami (death spirits have special dispensation due to their very nature.) "Snake" is grateful for the extra space around him (he's been walking around openly with at least two snakes draped around him [most of the neighbors avoid him when he has even one, much less two!].) The again, he has six to choose from...

    The snow spirits are preparing to head to Antarctica (will free up some space) and several of the others have given them lists of things they'd like sent up here that cannot be found around here (like Cherry Ripe bars. :rolleyes: ) Gentiana is staying a bit longer, though, to make sure her ward's going to be okay. Prompto is staying here in spite of the stay-at-home orders (he's had enough cold weather to last him a while.)

    We're dealing with the scheduling for all of the students (classes online, so no socializing with their classmates until further notice during certain hours. The computer banks are taking up more space than pretty much anyone in my apartment complex had ever seen before, plus the security is even tighter than before (Daiba set it up, linking it into his computer setup, which is more secure than even the servers for any of the financial districts in the world [paranoid much? :rolleyes].) Takaba Akihito's also making arrangements to "borrow" a little bandwidth to broadcast this year's "block party"/"extravaganza" for Children's Hospital (can't disappoint the fans, y'ken?) The choreographers are working on routines that will accommodate the "social distancing" rules (just in case the restrictions haven't been lifted by then.) Circus is lending it's "dressing rooms" aboard both ships to give everyone even more space (the AI bunnies and AI sheep have pretty much everyone's voiceprints, so stowaways can't get in without a legitimate tussle.)

    Oops, gotta go. "Snake" is taking out three of his companions! Nova, Wren, you know the drill! "Joker", "Beast", "Doll", provide backup!

    The guys held their first (hopefully only) indoor-only "block party" using several social media platforms and cameras. It wound down earlier today (much to my neighbors' delight [conch shells do carry their sound rather nicely, as do rams' horn "trumpets" and Highland bagpipes].)

    Kazumi's fish boil was welcome and "Snake" was grateful for the assistance concerning his companions. Betty the Tiger, Kuma the Bear and Koru the Panther kept interlopers away from Kazumi, moreso than the kerosene (drunks mostly pestering the big guy) but what're a few 3rd-degree burns between friends? /sarcasm.

    The snow spirits are back in Antarctica as is Gentiana (she wears several more layers than the others due to her being just a messenger/avatar of the ice goddess in her UoD.) I've suggested that she rent a small house a little farther north, and Asami gave her a contact to find a decent one for six months every year (everyone in "the clan" is far more useful than several people that I could name.)

    The :kitty: delegation has grown (much to the dismay of my neighbors) but I can't help bringing in stray and feral :kitty:s to foster, especially when the recognized rescue groups are pretty overwhelmed due to not being considered "essential services". Every human/oid member is helping me as much as they can, but some of my neighbors want the :kitty:s back where they came from (I'd like to throw them into Lake Michigan or Lake Superior, with weights around their waists.)

    Oops, gotta go. Refrigerator raid.

    May 28th,

    Everyone's finishing up their "burger party" (celebrating National Hamburger Day with vegetarian "hamburgers", salmon burgers and regular ones.) We also got a few new members. *scream* The "jumping" zombie was the first to notice the newcomers followed by the werewolves ("They smelled different.") I'm grateful that Shigure didn't leave any holes in the walls from her shuriken. Tomorrow night, we're having Kazumi's (in)famous Fish Boil (he's also packing up "to go" bento for any firefighters that show up.)

    May 29,

    The newest :kitty: is sunning herself in one of the windows (found out that her human name is Haru from her human companion/s.) One of the group Haru showed up with is having his a$$ets handed to him by Koru and Betty (not all :kitty:s like and/or want the attention of an over-enthusiastic humanoid [he ought to be grateful they didn't invoke their "claws clause" iykwim].) Big :kitty: = big claws = major medical bill (if human survives!) Rule #1 with :kitty:s (both big and small): ask permission to floof their fur and stop when they want to stop! 3 - 5 inches of claw can do some serious damage to one's anatomy, perhaps causing one's physiology to cease.

    And I thought Keigo was a real PitA! :rolleyes:

    I won't sentence the newbie to :kitty: herding duties (it won't do squat to deter him!) Maybe a stint in Nayugu...

    Oops, gotta go. The newbie's after Koru, and he's heading straight for "Snake"'s snakes!
