November 16, 2012


I still can't quite believe it. The interloper came for breakfast! I saw him out back, scooting along hte fence. I opened the door, thinking for sure he was going to scamper away, but he came right over. It's certainly colder and for sure this is his first winter and he's looking over his shoulder more. Though, as I said yesterday, he's getting bigger and his fur is nice and shiny. I'm so glad he felt okay to come close and have some breakfast. Be still my heart :)


Wow, epic week of re-watching and finished the re-watch with Breaking Dawn Part 1, and I continue to be impressed with how good this film is and how female centric and strong they go with it, although it can be a hard watch too. Vlog will be up over at my YouTube page sometime today and now I can't WAIT to see the final film tonight!


I did one of my stART projects and finished a little video reveal of what I got at Beadaholique. So, I spent my day mostly at the computer. I also did a giant PC holiday treats box reveal complete with Christmas music and holiday sparkly text. People love seeing reveals so I thought why not? And I love doing videos. In fact I am loving them so much, I don't want to stop. I just hope people enjoy watching them as much as I like doing them.

Jamie, I love that the Interloper is back! That is such exciting and healing news. I had a feeling he would be and it's so wonderful to see him. I can't imagine how wonderful it is for you!

Shannon, I love it, you really know how to make going to the movies a big event. Watching all the other ones and gearing up for the new one is so cool. I really hope you enjoy the new one too!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Well, it looks like my prognostication was correct! And I might... dare I say it... know what perhaps Shannon will post about tomorrow ;) What a fun adventure!

And Suzie, that felt just like Christmas! It was so exciting to watch your Beadaholique reveal. Your enjoyment was contagious! I can't wait to see what you create. Be sure to share this video as an update on stART too!

I was thinking this morning that I felt a bit like a block parent with the interloper yesterday. He really was rushing away from something and kept looking over his shoulder. I wonder what adventures he gets up to!

Suzie Ridler said...

Is prognostication another word for a logical psychic?! A cold reader perhaps? I like it!

Oh good, I wanted the video to have a happy Christmasy feel to it. I am so excited about Beadaholique, I just have to find time to get to play with resin and yes, will be sharing this on stART next week. I like Shannon's idea of doing a weekly update.

I think a block parent is a perfect way to connect with the interloper and yes, I bet he has many, many adventures! :) Too bad you can't use a kitty cam. Would love to see what he's up to in a day.

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Prognostication is "to predict according to present indications or signs; foretell." Wow, that really is the right word for this situation, LOL!

Hehe, I'm totally cracking up over the idea of a kitty cam. I'd love to follow his adventures! If he comes by again, I'll be thinking about how I might set up a little winter retreat in our backyard, a space that will be a little warmer and cozier.

Shannon said...

YAY for The Interloper's return! I can't believe how much they have grown - big kitty! I'm so happy they have returned for a visit and I really hope they pop by regularly :)

I remember hearing the term prognosticator in The X-Files, when Scully says 'professional prognosticators', in reference to a cast they are on. I think it's one of the ones with The Wonderous Yanni. Fun times.

Love the reveal videos Suzie! And people really do love them, I see them with DVD/BluRays all the time, sometimes people call them 'unboxing'. I watch them, the sense of excitiment and surprize always get me.

I love doing countdowns!! I really realized for me it's not only a way to know and experience the films deeply, but it's also a way to lead up excitement for a release without getting spoiled by the buzz around it. I guess it's my 'third option' for that scenario!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

So true! It's a brilliant way to generate excitement without spoilers - and an excuse for lots of popcorn. Of course, who needs an excuse for popcorn?

I should go back to my monthly DIY book club. I used to order a cd, a DVD and a book every month. That would be a fun reveal!

Shannon said...

omg, I love the idea of a DIY Entertainment Club reveal video! That's awesome!!! Yippie!

Suzie Ridler said...

Totally new but cool term for me. Oh man, from the X-Files? I should know that then!

Me too, love the idea of kitty cam (but of course would never do it). I think maybe him a little nook would be beautiful Jamie! Reminds me of when we made a home for the Easter Bunny together.

He is a big kitty Shannon!

Thank you! Just added the term unboxing to my YouTube videos. :)

Absolutely, you make it an event Shannon. Reminds me of the Gilmore Girls when they would do festivals like that at home. Yes, I am a GG geek.

Funny, I wrote about popcorn today on my foodie blog!

Oh I so want to do a DIY Entertainment Club too. That would be sweet!
