    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?
