Birthdays Followup [May. 17th, 2008|05:10 pm]
Nicodemus
I never did put up a post after we got back from Portland and the Festival of Many Birthdays.

Timothy's party was great, thanks to the selfless efforts of my sister-in-law who organized it and provided the sacrificial living room. The party had a Ratatouille theme (not my idea, honest!) so I brought Remy along to be a surprise guest. Timothy loves fursuits (yay!) and his cousins also had fun with the giant rat.

Timothy got a passel of presents, including many books. Even though he's not reading yet, he enjoys flipping through books.

We also went out to celebrate my and Kit's birthdays. We went to a pirate-themed bar and restaurant, Salvador Molly's. It was a little place but the food was excellent. Quite a mix of world cuisines from the middle latitudes.

Special thanks also to shalora and twigmouse for going out of their way to meet up for some fun.

It's a good thing Timothy loves fursuits, or he'd be in trouble! Any plans for his first fursuit?

No solid plans. I'm not sure, but probably next FC he'll at least have ears.
We'll see how he deals with wearing things.

(It's hard to pick a species for him, though.)

Like father like son! Wouldn't you want your son to be a rat too?

Well, I would, sure. But it's gonna be his choice. (Besides, mom has a conflicting vote anyway.)

Hm. You've probably already thought of this, but how about picture book of animals? I have two of the type I'm thinking of: one's a field guide to mammals of the Rocky Mountain; the other is a field guide to North American mammals. Maybe you could sit down with him and go through such a book, and see which ones he likes the best.

That's a good idea. I don't know if I have any good animal guides with pictures that'd interest him. Of his baby books, he hasn't really latched onto any particular animal.

It'll get sorted out in time, I guess.

I'm a lot older than Timothy, but I'd still be thrilled at having Remy show up at my birthday! Glad it all went well. And happy birthday to you and Kit too.

Thanks. And I'm sure Remy would love to attend your birthday party (if he were in the area). :)

Happy b-days to all!

Very awesome to see you as Remy too!

And of course I'm biased, but I think Timothy's species might work nicely as a wolfy-type. Theres already a cat and mouse, so I would think something canine/lupine would do nicely to round out the family...his choice of course :) Or perhaps something avian...hmmm.

Very cute, indeed! Makes me wonder if he thinks he's watching a movie about his Dad everytime he watches Ratatouille! ;)

Thanks! It's always a pleasure to cook for friends (especially when they do the dishes) so if I'm ever near I/Remy would be happy to oblige.

Yay! The dishes are just part of cooking!
The dishwasher is part of the kitchen too, a very important job!

BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Three.

You can't do bad when you have a cute, food loving (and making) rat show up at your birthday.

WOW! you're not just exciting and inspiring future fur suiters, out of the family, but into the family as well.

Hope things are going great up there for you three. :)

P.S. .............. !!SQUEAK!! ... !!RAR!!
