WIP Wednesday: I Can Has Plot

Yeah...okay...sue me. I think the LOL cats or whatever-the-hell they're called are kind of lame, but I had a black cat like the one in the picture when I was growing up, and well, I miss him sometimes. Cat's can be so primal, y'know? Like, if they were bigger, they'd eat us.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow here in the "States" (yum), so I'll just leave you with this (it's not as plot spoiling as the black cat):

“You been up to the cemetery tonight?” Deputy Harrison’s black mustache froze, and his tiny eyes punched two holes in the pale sheet of his face. Dry ice pumped into my stomach at the mention of the cemetery. The ghost of limestone gates flashed past as Megan and I drove home. It’d looked quiet. A breeze cut across the yard, rattling limbs like old bones. Harrison scratched the side of his face, but he never even shivered.

I think I caught those cats in their take on "Twilight/New Moon," and it was obviously much better than the book or the movie.

"A breeze cut across the yard, rattling limbs like old bones." Nice.

Lot's o' ghosts in this one, Milo. The breeze might not have just been a breeze...

Cats can be quite freaky. They always look as if they know too much. And perhaps they do.

Have a fabulous Thanksgiving. I shall have a turkey sandwich for my lunch in honour of all my US pals (and because I want a turkey sandwich).

I use to own a black cat too until someone stole it. Had it like two weeks and then gone. I was so mad.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

I have to admit, I'm not a fan of cats.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you seen LOLdogs? Also adorable.

Honestly enjoyed this wee post - laughed at the cat, shivered at your story. Happy Thanksgiving, Aaron!

I love lolcats. I know, I'm lame.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have to admit, I love LOLCats too. But I also love the description of Harrison in the beginning of that, so my taste isn't ALL bad, right?
