She’s long gone with her red shoes on

HELLO, INTERNET. My friend Andrea (of animal-rescuing fame) has four kittens she has caught, snuggled, and is in the process of vetting. These kittens need homes. Given how gob-smackingly adorable they are, I hope this should not be a problem.
Seriously. Even if you can’t adopt one, go enjoy pictures here and here, and feel free to pass them around. Likewise, click ye upon this-here post for the general info on how to obtain a ludicrous-cute kitten OF YOUR VERY OWN.
In short, Andrea will drive up to four hours from Fredericksburg, VA to put them in approved homes.
This covers most of the state of Virginia, a good chunk of Maryland, a good chunk of West Virginia, and even goes as far as Gettysburg, PA (she takes the back roads to avoid I-95). So if you’re anywhere in that ballpark, and you’re interested in rescuing some charming, purry, wicked-snuggly, four-footed cuddle-beasts, well … YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO.
And in other news, here’s today’s progress on my fifth Clockwork Century novel – a book about teenage juvenile delinquents, hypothetical ghosts, and gangland mayhem within the walled city of Seattle … now with Bonus! zombie Sasquatch and the return of everyone’s favorite elderly cross-dressing Native American princess:

Things accomplished in real life: Daily run/climb in all its sweaty glory; went to Walgreens to pick up prescription; went to bank to get quarters; did two loads of laundry, including bedding; assisted Russian translator with vintage American idioms for Boneshaker release over there; negotiated/scheduled awesome supper tonight with out-of-towners; exchanged day-job emails to set up my weekend work load.
Other: Well, progress is progress. Had to undo some of last night’s word count. And probably won’t make any further word count progress tonight, given dinner plans. Ah, well. Back on the pony tomorrow.
