So I'm finally all settled in here in my new place and at my new job. The whole moving process was traumatic for me, to put it mildly, but on the whole things are now good in the world of me. If nothing else, I no longer share a bathroom with anyone and I now have a pair of adorable (if neurotic) kittens. :-)

I've got the time and maybe even the energy now so I'm going to be trying to get more writing done again. Yay! To help matters along, sort of get me back into the swing of things, I think it's time to try the good old One Word Meme once more.

Give me one word or short phrase, and I'll give you one Doctor Who, Torchwood, or BBC Sherlock related sentence that relates to that word. You can specify fandom, characters, etc., if you want. If you pick a particularly interesting word or phrase, you might get a drabble out of it. Bring on the prompts!

...Umm, but aren't both of those words sort of redundant RE kittens? ;)

Definitely true in general. In my specific case, even more true. They were separated from their mother very young and as a consequence don't really know how to be cats in some ways.

Case in point: they understand what the litter box is for, thank heaven, but they've never really grasped the concept of burying their poop. They just scratch at the walls of the box instead.

It's not stupidity, they're quite brilliant at playing fetch and learning to come when I call/whistle. They're just... a bit special. And I love 'em. :-)

Ah, good to hear that they do seem capable of learning -- we've had Simple Cat for 10 years now and she still has a lot of Unclear On The Concept moments about being a cat... {sigh}

I had a pair of simple cats when I was in high school... one was so simple she couldn't even figure out doors. If she went one way through the cat door, and then you opened the people door, she would sit there in the open doorway and cry and not know what to do to go back the other way. Poor baby, life was all just so confusing for her.

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
