Red Tabby Cruising Committee Meets
The first Meeting of the Red Tabby Cruising Committee has adjourned... and it was fantastic! There were free drinks for everyone, three course meals, cupcakes to frolic in...
Well, possibly not free for everyone - but for beloved guests of honour... absolutely. (The First Mate's strangled choking noises behind me are a tad reminiscent of when he was trying to bift me off the cupcake pile last night. But frankly if I heeded all of the Can Opener's gasping and in articulate overreacting I would never get anything done. And certainly the cupcake count of my life would be dramatically lower.)
The First Mate spent the better part of this morning with Cruising Committee work: drafting emails to Cruising Section Members to publicise upcoming club cruising events this Spring. Tomorrow he'll be compiling the updated Section contact list. Moaning and aching all day, he was. As if he were the only one frenetically employed...
At times, I do find the Can Opener has little regard for real effort - I have been busy all morning filing the leftover patisserie I looted. Filed according to colour, culinary heritage and tastiness... (Oi! WHERE did these come from, Fuzzbucket?? I thought I completely emptied your dreadful sac à main last night! My dear First Mate, that delightful Red Tabby chef absolutely pressed them upon me when I told him I could get him Dee Cafari's autograph. She still remembers me...)
Quality control is my forté.
