Today shifted from Jewel's parents caring for the kitties to Tanner and Janell. We know this because Tanner called and asked for directions to give to Janell. He can get to our apartment, just not describe how to. Anyway, Janell left the lights on, so even after our holiday lights go out we can see the two now. There are several toys now visible in Foo cam range (I almost had a heart attack when I first looked, because I thought the Power Puff beach ball was one of Andy's origami constructs), and Andy and I are trying to figure out which toys were used to play with kitties and which were used to play with Bram. I've seen both via Foo cam today, and as a onus Gail was being silly when I caught her. At least with the Foo cam around I'm not spending the whole time worried that something has gone wrong.
Tony and Sara will be visiting tomorrow. Andy is thinking that we might have to watch TTT first and then do LotR, depending upon how late it is when they get here. I rather hope we watch LotR first, but I'll go with either. Then they'll play PS2 games on the huge tv. Andy will probably show Tony FFX and Ico, and then they may play Tekken. Andy keeps reminding me of the kangaroo and the panda and the bowling mode. I doubt they'll play GTA unless everyone leaves, and since I've long since heard the whole Chatterbox reel, I'll be just as happy if that is the case. Finding food will be fun; Sara's vegetarian and I'm allergic to half the foods on the planet, or so it feels sometimes. It'll be fun, though. Tony and Sara are two really neat people (sometime I need to do a journal entry about their wedding, which was done as a Celtic circle ceremony with no officiant except for a group of friends) and Andy and Tony have been friends since second grade.
I still don't know if we're going to Dave and Sherry's -- we need to wait to hear back from them. They're supposed to get back late tonight from visiting relatives in Florida, and I imagine they'll answer my e-mail sometime tomorrow, or we'll call them. Sherry sounded very happy about the prospect in her last e-mail, so I hope it'll be ok on their end. I can't say why, but I have a very strong feeling that Andy needs to see them -- strong enough that I've offered to drive both ways. This is saying a lot since it's an unfamiliar car and I hate driving in ice and snow. Still, if it's as cathartic for him as I think it'll be, it will be worth it. Now all we need to do is wait for (or arrange) a miracle.
