Wow. OK, pretty sure this is the last one before normal service is resumed proper and I can mentally escape this Covid-19 cabin fever fantasy BUT

Turns out I was actually thinking of the ex after all! And her going "I've heard more Prince songs on R6 in the last 3 weeks than the last 3 years" suddenly struck a chord as it appears in this 13-line poem written on Prince's birthday last year I was invoking her feline form from Time... the way she always perched getting up out of bed made her resemble some sort of lady Thundercat*. Plus, her #13 fixation stemmed from hearing a version of Pixies No.13 Baby the same December I got back in touch with her!!!

Not only that there's a stray cat in our back garden now that looks the absolute spits of Cate Blanchett.
