Home Again, or Back in the Land of Having to Share My Car

Summer, for most college students, means spending a significant amount of time at home, which is either their worst nightmare or a break from pulling all-nighters while being surrounded by people who don't quite understand why you're happy-dancing about being away from the cafeteria for four months but love you anyway.

Since it's entirely possible that I may have to reference them at some point in the future, here is a handy-dandy guide to the current cast of characters in this house.



The Momster would like you to believe that she's still sane after homeschooling for fifteen years and counting. I would say more, but she knows where I sleep.

Mr. Colonel General Daddy Sir dragged his wife and unwilling daughters around the globe via the Air Force. Now that he's retired, they're thankful and he's smug.

Kayto (Kayt) is the blog author and has run out of room on her bookshelves for the fiftieth time. She's very visual, which is why the blog has so many pictures, and very weird, which is why they happen to be these pictures.
Also, she used to go by "Kato," a shortening of her name, but people kept wanting to pronounce it kah-toe, so the Y got added for pronunciation help. Now she occasionally drops the O because she's sneaky like that, plus "Kayt the Great" has a nice ring to it.

Chameleon Head ("Lee") asked to go by Her Royal Awesome Dancerness Maylee the Magnificent or some other ridiculous thing. She's following Kayt to college and will be attempting to steal her car quite often. Her hair also changes colors quite frequently.


The (Not So) Jolly Green Giant is much too tall to be the youngest sister. She has the wingspan of an albatross and the power of Chuck Norris. Beware, all ye who would annoy her.

Minor Characters

She Who Must Be Obeyed is a cat. Obviously.

Fox is an adorably hyperactive 2.5 y.o. border collie adopted from the shelter where Lee and the Giant work. His last owners were jerks, and he likes long walks on the beach...and the woods, and the county fair.

The Scottish Play is a 6-month-old kitten who has taken up the mantle of annoying younger brother. He play-fights with Fox before taking over the dog's bed, and thinks that She Who Must Be Obeyed is just kidding when she threatens to kill him for continuously batting at her tail every waking moment.
