Steampunk tea party, that is.
I love hosting tea parties, and OctopodiCon gives me an excuse to do so.
Yesterday, we held one at a local hostel, in their gardens. It's November, so much of the garden was already dead. We still had a lovely time.
Itzl was much sought after, especially by the younger tea partiers.
He preferred to stay near me because we were in a strange setting. Most of the time, he was in his pouch, but when he was on the ground, he dogged my heels, climbing stairs to the kitchen to get fresh hot water for the teapots, and back down again.
Most of the people attending the Tea Party had never played "The Captain's Cat" - an updated version of "The Minister's Cat". They enjoyed it so much that we played several rounds of the game.
Itzl alerted on 3 phone calls, a doorbell, and someone's car alarm going off. He also got a saucer of milky tea and licked the winner of "The Captain's Cat".
We love tea parties.
