And you know what's funny? The Little One is actually NOT a male kitten. Why yes, it turns out that she's actually a princess. :D
What's even more funnier is that before my boyfriend and I realized this, we had already chosen a name for "him". We called "him" Boris because in my opinion, he looks Russian (boyfriend argues, "How the hell does a cat look Russian?"). I tried Tchaikovsky, but my boyfriend thinks people will have a hard time spelling his name (good point). I also tried Dylan after Bob Dylan (LOL) but then people wouldn't be able to pronounce it correctly and I'd get annoyed. That's why Boris was perfect. It's easy to spell and to pronounce for Indonesian people. Also, it's very memorable and we love the look people give us when people ask about "his" name (yes, that WTF look).
I do like naming cats with unusual foreign names. It makes them special because people here usually name cats with something stupid or meaningless like Bulbul or Kupluk or whatever. Aslan, for example, is very well known in our vet's clinic. Everyone in that clinic knows him because of his unique name and his laid-back attitude. That clinic is populated with cats and dogs in a daily basis but the vet always remembers Aslan each time we visit.
I picked the name Aslan after Aslan the Great Lion from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - which is one of my favorite children books. :)
Paris. It still rhymes with Boris and it's still as memorable!
- plastic bags to hide in
- my hair, she likes to chew on it
- chasing Aslan's tail
- climbing to my vanity table every time I do my makeup (sounds cute, but it's actually pretty annoying)
- more activity involving me and Aslan getting annoyed
- sitting on my lap (or any human's lap) and purr away to sleep :)
She likes picking on Aslan - A LOT.
Anyways. I'm going to see Robin Hood tonight, which I hope will be a blast. We rarely get good movies here on the theaters. In the last couple of months I've only been to the movie 2 times. And this I consider as rare, my friends go to the movies so much more often than me. They'd watch anything, which is cool, but not for me. I can't stand bad movies, especially in theaters. I'm not a movie snob per say, I'd watch anything on DVD, but not in theaters.
The last time I went was last week. I saw How to Train Your Dragon, which I enjoyed. The dragon was called Toothless and he reminded me a lot of Aslan. Lol. Maybe it's the golden yellow eyes. Well, I don't want to spoil it for everyone but it really was good. There were a bunch of kids in the theater, I thought they'd make too much noises but I was wrong! The only person who annoyed the hell out of me while watching the movie was the guy behind me. He'd laugh on ANYTHING, and he laughs like a madman. He'd even laugh right after he read the subtitles while the actual line hasn't been spoken yet. Is that normal? I dislike rude people on movie theaters. The ones who keep TEXTING throughout the movie (the light from their cellphones is so distracting), the ones who keep TALKING and GUESSING what the next scene will be... geez, what's wrong with you people? I hope tonight I would have better luck not to get seat next to people like these. Fingers crossed!
