Loft in Transition?/

So...I moved. I am no longer a member of PHARK. PHARK has, in fact, dissolved and will soon transition into PAG instead. (Or GAP, I guess, but I hate their pants. Too big in the waist, too small in the hips.) I can't bear to change the name of the blog, because I'll never ever come up with something that clever again. Um...let's try..."No-Loft, Not Being Translated"? Nope. Lame. Uh..."Eternal Sunshine of the Loftless Mind"? Even lamer, because it sounds like I'm actually trying. "Paradise Loft"? Well that doesn't make a lick of sense. And what's worse, I just used the word "lick" in the 1950s old man way. Ohhhh dear. "The Bachelorette"? Nope, I'm not single. "My Apartment"? Catchy, Hewlett. Reeeeeal catchy.

See? It's useless. So I'm keeping the title "Loft in Translation", even if it means that I have to spy on P, A and the mysterious new G in order to justify my decision. So there.

And now, if I may...ladies and gentlemen (all two of you)...I present:

KRAM

It's the new PHARK, but with less space and more cats.

That's right. I adopted a second cat. Her name is Martha, and I could fit about seven cats her size into Rufus' generous belly (not that I've tried. That would be HORRIFYING.) She is fluffy and black-brown (like all my IKEA furniture) and very, very small. Rufus and Martha chase each other around the new apartment (all ten square feet of it) while Martha bares her claws and Rufus swings his stumps...and they sleep on my bed together at night. Neither one of them shows the slightest bit of interest in me. I'm just the one who opens the blinds for them so they can make that weird "want to eat pigeons" noise they love so much; the one who puts their food out when they knock breakables off high surfaces to let me know they're hungry; the one who discourages them from storing their toys in the litterbox. Yep, Crazycatladyland can get a little lonely. (Not really. That was just for dramatic effect.)

So that's my news!

Also...I think I'm going to go to Los Angeles for the Dog's Breakfast screening this month. Will I meet any of you there??

Until then, I'll be unpacking. And picking up tufts of fur...

I don't blame you for keeping the name, Loft in Translation is a clever title. You can say you are keeping it out of nostalgia. I'm glad Rufus is getting along with his new sibling. Will they be sharing the cat stroller? You could build one that resembles the stroller people use for twins. Then you'd really look like a crazy cat lady. :)

I was going to post the first comment for the week, but I was too slow. Oh, well, at least I'm second.

Best wishes for your new apartment and a smooth settling in. In August I moved from the Midwest to New England and it was a lot of work!

The name is great, so yeah, I'm with you for keeping it. Unfortunately, though one of my online friends has been bugging me, there's no way I can make it down to LA for the ADB screening this month, much as I'd love to. I'm hoping there will be one in Seattle or Vancouver soon -- I could get to either of those easily. Is David hauling Paul around to the screenings too? That would be fun, I bet.

It's good to hear you've moved and yay on the new kitty Martha. I'm glad that she and Rufus are getting on so well. Sometimes it can be a miserable task to introduce a new fur-child into the household. My dog Chris is very decidedly an Only Mutt. I suspect he would try to make a snack of a cat, despite the fact that he's only about the size of a large one himself. Can we say the puppy has issues? (I knew you could.)

David's new ADB clip with the toothbrush is so evil. Even seeing the moment when he most likely swapped out the toothbrush, it's icky and the whole idea just makes me twitch. I can't wait to see the whole movie!

Have you had any time to work on polishing your play in the midst of all the moving? I'm still plugging away at the book. I've shifted gears on it in one fairly large aspect, and this has made some of the more advanced stuff come together much better; it's just a matter of getting everything down on paper. Sometimes I wish I was writing a novel instead of a book on divination -- I think it would be so much easier. Nonfiction is an entirely different beast than fiction. (And both of them are vastly different than poetry.)

Good luck in your new home! I hope you'll tell us all about the new space and the new neighborhood.

Glad to hear that you survived the move, and that a new, teeny-weeny kitty has come your way. Here's hoping she's able to hold her own against The Abominable Rufus!

And enjoy Los Angeles and the screening -- right when Toronto is moving into the gray, sunlight-less portion of autumn, you'll be taking a trip out west into the warmth and sunshine. Perfect timing!

"right when Toronto is moving into the gray, sunlight-less portion of autumn" I got the impression that it was always that way? lol. What do I know I'm from IL :)

I would keep the title to. It's to good to part with.

I'm holding on to some hope that there will be a screening in Chicago. High fives to that, for sure.

Any specific reason why you named your cat Martha? It isn't in honor of the white-collared criminal is it?

Dear Kate,
Missed you (yes I'm working on my aim), and needed a good laugh. Congrats on the new place- a whole ten feet in Toronto (luxury!). We all welcome the new addition to your family and look forward to pictures. (Damn I love kittens.)
I'm so glad you'll be able to make the screening in LA.(Lap up all the kudos, you deserve them.)
Sadly, with what I owe the big five banks,(word to the wise NEVER but a house and a car the same year), and the lack of a 649 win, I will be unable to attend.
I am however keeping Westjet on speed dial for when ADB gets it's Toronto or Montreal premiere.
I was thinking, perhaps you could do your own movie featuring a charming young woman and two sassy cats, (it's got possiblities). L

I wish I could go to LA. But that's a 12 hour flight away, and a hell of a lot of money. I'll be there in spirit. You can meet my spirit, exciting. Have you seen the finished product yet? Or do you have to wait till you get to LA?

Another cat to join the family? YAY! I get to take my kitty with me when I move out of home :)

Did the move go well? Nice and smooth? Did ya discover you owned something you didn't know you had?

Hope you and Rufus and Martha are settling in nicely :)

Aww. :( Now I wish even more than ever that I could make it to the LA screening. Alas, it's just not possible at this time. 26 hours driving time is just too far. I'm really hoping for a screening somewhere in the midwest or south. I'd be willing to drive up to 12 hours one way to get there, but that's my upper limit.

A kitten! If only they stayed that size - a soft ball of fur. Careful - Rufus now has an accomplice for any scheming he may be planning. :p

If you do go, have fun at the screening. I cant make it to LA, but Im sure more screenings are on their way. D, Jane, and John Lenic will also be appearing at the convention that saturday - you could join if you're interested. See what the craze is all about. lol.

Definitely keep the name even if it doesn't apply. It just applies to the loft that was (was just watching Serenity...hehee).

It's nice that Rufus is getting a sib. Give somebody to keep him company. :D My parents and I have been talking about getting two girl kitties, but haven't yet. One of our cats passed away suddenly, so we want to have two kitties keep my cat Riley company. We also have Whiskers, but she's old (pushing 17) and set in her ways. Riley's rather lonely these days. :( So one of these days... :D

You could always attempt to come up with a new definition of "loft". Of course, that may require stringing a foreigner from the ceiling. Maybe not.

I wish I could go to the screening, but alas, that be not the way of things.

Loved the "lick" usage, though. People should use archaic slang more often.

Ah, no more PHARK. That's okay, PAG is bound to give us (and you) endless fun and reasons to blog. By the way, we need more info on this new G.

I don't like Gap's pants either! I have the same problem you do. I gave up shopping there along time ago.

I love that you have a new kitten. Rufus has a playmate...you'll never get her back you know that right? I need another cat. I love the funny sounds they make. Or....just come to chat on David's site and you can meet some of our noisey cats!

I'm in the same boat as most of the folks that have already responded. No ADB screening for me this time around. I live in FL and tickets are waaaaay to expensive (I checked as soon as I saw the announcement!!).

Would you do the east coast and midwesterners a favor and get David to look at our half of the country? (Preferably a location in the south......Nashville would be centralized!)

Enjoy the screening and meeting anyone that gets to come. Give us all kinds of details! (And a picture of David, Jane, you, and Paul if he comes!)

Congrats on the new family member... ALhtough I'm a dog person myself, never really one for cats, but definately keep the name, it's catchy and I can tell my freinds I keep tabs on this really witty blogger who named thier blog "loft-in-translation"...

Good luck with the LA scene, Having a really important exams half way across the hempishere/equator/world really doesn't bode well sorry, but hopefully if you guys screen in Australia, you've gotta come down!

I hope you don't mind meeting some of ur Australian Followers.

If you end up losing your con virginity (and not just going to the screening), you'll have to tell us all about it! I'm always interested in talking to actors who go through the experience for the first time. It's not as scary as you'd think.

Sadly, getting out to LA for a screening is cost-prohibitive, so you won't be meeting me, either. (I'm sure you're crushed.)

And I'm with windshieldbug. Who's this mysterious G? We must know more!

Good luck with the unpacking.

And you do well in keeping the blog's name. It's already recorded in our minds, we are now like zombies: "need to visit...webpage...need...to...visit...kate's blog...need to type...loft-..in-translation..blogspot...com...need to...press enter." It would be a bit difficult to adapt to a new name.

It's always interesting when a new member of the family arrives. Yesterday, we had to look after a puppy for a few hours, it's my nephew's birthday present. Anyway, our cat was decidedly unimpressed with the situation. After a few delicate sniffs towards the energetic canine, Cleo went absolutely postal on him. We decided that she needed an afternoon in the garden. Funniest damn thing I ever saw!

Hello! I can't make any of the LA screenings (I nearly maxed out the plastic to try and go...hubby stopped me) but I am hoping you are still thinking about Wolf Pegasus, London in Feburary!

In fact Im going to be living in London for a bit from next month so I totally sympahise with the move but quite thankful that I don't have a cat to re-settle just yet. I'm probably never likely too as my husband's a bird lover and couldn't cope with the 'little gifts'

I'm glad to see that your cats are getting along... I had the best of all possible intentions when I adopted Cookie, but Mookie (they rhyme, get it? D'oh) is a crotchety, neurotic old man-cat and he has eaten away a TON of fur in his anxious "omg what is this little thing that keeps jumping on me?!" state. He doesn't hurt the kitten, just himself. *sighs*

But yes, seconding the request for con reports! I just went to the one in NJ where met Jason (hello, hottie!) and Joe and a bunch of amazingly friendly and gracious SG-1 actors, but had I known that ADB would be screening at the Burbank con, I MIGHT have flown out just for that!

I think you're going to have a great time, if you decide to go. Stargate fans are a little, um, "intense" in their adoration *grins* but it should be really fun for you. Of course, should David and Jane decide to have a New York screening I can personally guarantee that you would have fun, non-alcoholic beer be damned!

Hiya

First: wanna see a pic of Marhta!
Second: still wanna see a pic of the RuMaroller!
Third: um....would want to come to LA but it's too far away and costs too much money. Just convince David and Jane that it's totally necessary to do a screening in Frankfurt, Germany with all the stars (so YOU! Mars, Paul, Chris, Rachel and...I think there was one more....uhm...some guy starting with "D"?....) But you definitely have to post pics of the screening and of the con!

How did you come up with Martha's name? Any resemblance you saw to someone? My sis named her moouse Mary coz she reminded her of Dr. Watson's wife! How strange is that?!
And I'm glad Rufus and Martha get along with each other so well...we didn't have that much luck with our cat when we adopted this little fur ball. It was still okay but nce the new cat got pregnant it was all lost. The day the little kittens left the cellar and conquered the rest of the house our old cat moved out and settled in with some neighbours. But at least we knew where she was and that the people she adopted as a new family were really nice to her.

Enough of cats: Congrats to the move...you made it. I hope you and Rufus like the new location (or darn I wanted to stop writing about cats!)...
And you totally have to keep us informed about "mystery G"...
I think that was is....for now... ; )

My mom's cats (one is actually mine, he just refused to live with me after my son was born...?) sleep together in their litter box. Makes you want to think twice about loving on them.

Loft in translation is still a good title...however their needs to be one of those translation engines for "KateSpeak". Not that I don't understand you ;) but it would be cool to see your words translated into mundane speak...did I just say that. That made less sense than, well anything. It's too early in the morning. *snore*

I like KRAM. Sounds appropriate, especially if you really only have 10 sq ft of space. I've heard that good-sized big-city apartments are hard to get. I live in AR, and my town only has about 2500 people, so I was able to buy a nice-sized house (new construction), for very little. I've moved 11 times in my life (and I'm only 26), and I love it. I think it's fun to pack, and unpack. I always discovered I owned so many different things. As a kid, packing and unpacking felt like christmas. The next time I move though, it'll have to be to FL or TX (I need warmer weather, and no state income tax). I hope you enjoy your new place, and new cat. Have fun in LA with the screening. I hope there will be one near me soon.

By the way, I applaud you on adopting another cat. It's been saved from a short lonely life, and now has a loving "mom" and sibling. All my dogs were pound animals. I just wish my puppy was up here with me in college. I'd rather have four footed roommates than some of the special people I've lived with. *hides in corner*

I want a kitten! Of course, my kitty probably would be rather put out because she gets all the attention nowadays. I tried valiantly to get A Dog's Breakfast to do a screening in St. Cloud, Minnesota (well, I registered, but didn't have anyone else do it *cough cough* VALIANTLY!) but since nobody in St. Cloud really knows much about A Dog's Breakfast the amount of requests tends to be a little low. So, needless to say, LA is a little far. My sister and I are hoping it'll come out on DVD instead...will it? If it's not we can always hope someone uploads it to the Internet and we can giggle like schoolgirls in front of the computer screen.

Yay for kittens!

I wish I could make it to L.A. for the screening. I'll be thinking of you as I'm NaNoWriMoing. Hope to get a chance to see the film soon. If you ever make it to this part of Oregon, I'll buy you a coffee. Wait, I didn't mean coffee. I meant some other, tummy-friendly beverage. Yeah.

If you look at your blog title from a different perspective, it's actually quite a philosophical name. Since loft as a verb meants "to send high up" and a translation as a noun is a decipherment, this blog is actually a sending high up of your decipherment (of life and the universe, or whatever).

Kikou !!!

Petit message de France où le temps est bien morose ! J'imagine que ça ne sera pas le cas pour ton séjour à "LA" Los Angeles...
Bon malheureusement, je ne pourrais pas venir (ce n'est pas l'envi qui manque !): d'une part c'est trop loin, trop cher, j'ai pas mon passeport biométrique et d'autre part je ne peux pas louper les cours...je ne pense pas que l'excuse "absente car en voyage à Los Angeles pour aller voir un film et rencontrer de magnifiques acteurs" suffirait ! ;)

Amuses-toi bien !!!
Bisous !

PS: Pourrais-tu demander à David si il a pensé à diffuser son film en France ?

HAVE FUN!

I'm there for the screening and con as it stands now. My sister has been planning this (she's a Stargate con virgin)but ended up in the hospital today. It doesn't appear to be anything too serious and we are hoping she will be able to make the con if not the screening.

Have fun at the screening tomorrow - enjoy the red carpet glamour!

(also, I agree that keeping loft in translation is fine; it's too great of a name to lose!)

You know what's funny? My room has been nicknamed Paradise Loft.
Okay, that's not really funny...but I just felt like saying it.

Can't wait until you post about the ADB screening! I wish I could be there, but that's just not happening. Have a ton of fun, and take lots of pictures!

Hey everyone! Cute picture of the lovely Kate Hewlett over on dgeek.com. (Her brother's website.)

Go into the forums under "A Dog's Breakfast."

They had the big premiere last night and the few reviews posted, thus far, are very positive. Hooray!

I wish I could go to the screening. If the movie is even halfway as funny as Nothing, I'll at least be buying the DVD. I re-watched the episode of SGA -McKay and Mrs.Miller - it's still funny. I loved how easy you made it look - like you've been on the show for years. Your character fit right in, and I hope you get to come back in a recurring role. Good luck with the cat by the way - unfortunately, I'm not a cat person or any kind of animal person - I can't even keep a plant alive. Several geraniums have met their demise in my care. The worst was when I got goldfish as a prize at work and - a new record - I killed them within 24 hours. A cat might last longer, but I wouldn't want to chance it.

Why not "Lofty Ambitions?"

En tu entrevista en Gateworld mencionaste que te llegan mensajes en varios idiomas, y para hacer esta afirmación extracorrecta dejo este mensaje... solo por diversión.

PD. Suerte con la película y la obra de teatro, si tu blog es muestra de tu talento creo que tienes un gran futuro por delante

Hi !

How are you? What are your impressions about the Première ? I can't wait anymore to read all your feelings about it !
Ca devait être vraiment super génial ! J'ai vu quelques photos prises par des gens qui ont eu la chance d'assister à la diffusion du film...très joli ce petit haut rose fushia avec le sac rose également !
J'imagine que tu as plein de truc à faire vu que le blog est un peu en plan et comme le dis un dicton français: "pas de nouvelle bonnes nouvelles !" J'attends avec impatience "L'aventure de Kate Hewlette au pays du cinéma Hollywoodien" !!!

Solène, toujours aussi admirative et toujours aussi médiocre en anglais et persiste donc à écrire en français ! Mais bon si tu deviens un star internationale le français est incontestablement un plus! Solène, coach de français virtuelle qui dit n'importe quoi car trop crevée par sa journée !!! lol

Great name. Why would you ever want to change it? Keep up the great work.
