So, I don't discuss them much, but we have, between the two of us, four cats. My mom, who was a total crazy cat lady, had six and when I left for DC, I ended up taking three of them with me as she was sick and couldn't take care of them all. K had one of her own she was finally able to bring down to DC.

Of our four cats, two of them are old lady cats. 15 or so. We've never had much issue with their health, as a whole. Possibly because they're inside-only cats.

On Wednesday, when I got home from work, we found one of the old lady cats, Smokey, laying down on the ground. K was nervous about this because she usually comes to say hello when we get home. We put out food and she still laid on the ground. K tried to get her to stand up and she fell over.

So, fearing the worst, Smokey and I went to the emergency vets. Of course, at the vets, Smokey climbs out of her carrier and wobbles around, so i'm thinking maybe it's a sprained muscle or something.

Nope. Her balance is off. This is something that can happen to older animals. It may get better. It may not. The vet did bloodwork, did a thorough exam and she is in fine health, except that she can't walk straight at the moment anymore.

They gave her an antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory and some pills to help her. And she was at least moving more this morning than she was yesterday: from a bed to the food dish, to in front of R's chair, to the other bed, etc. It was still movement.

So.. that's the good news.

On an intellectual level, I knew the cats were old. I knew something could happen. But you're never ready for it. Not even the threat of it, so...

That's the news.

At least she seems to be doing a little better.

Ugh

I'm such a masochistic bastard...
I'm still sore and stiff from yesterday's half hour jog.
So what do I do?
I work out even harder today. Half an hour jogging on the treadmill, half an hour on the elliptical and then (what I didn't do yesterday) weight lifting.
On the plus hand, I don't think I'm as sore as yesterday.
On the minus hand, I'm more sore than I was before I worked out.
On the plus hand, jogging is a really good cardiovascular workout. Better than walking. That's why I'm trying to make it a habit.
That and the fact that I'm severely masochistic.
Oh well.. It will be worth it in the end. Honestly, it will...

Not much else to report. Had that meeting with Ching and Dr. Atkinson and I found out what I'd get paid for RA ($519 per two weeks, a slight pay cut from being a TA). Otherwise, it's been an uneventful if sore day.

Oh, by n by.. if I was worried about the little one not jumping, he's definately jumping now. All over. Onto the chair. Onto my bed. Onto me. He can jump. Now we need to get him to work on his pounce.. it's still pretty pathetic :)

Time to go to press :)

I'm feeling better than I have in a couple days. I just woke up feeling better. For those not aware, I suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which makes me crankier, grumpier and more depressed than my usually lovable self. I dunno if I wasn't clocking enough time under the full spectrum light or what.. but I had a major bout of depression the last couple days which made me feel very blah. As a result, I was probably a bit nastier in my last post than I would have normally liked. For that, I apologize.

In other news, for those of you who normally be seeing me on Chaotic, if you are curious where I am, I've been playing Zoo Tycoon with my spare time. And I'm back at work, starting on being an RA on the Lake Ontario project (my to-be thesis)
Yay getting paid to do my thesis! :D

I had lunch with my friend Dave yesterday. It's the last I've seen of him since new years eve. He really needs (needed?) to get out of the house.. since new years eve, ANOTHER relative of his died (I dunno. Did I mention this?) and he was there when she died and he's just... well he WAS cracking.. he seemed better yesterday.
We went to the moon chinese buffet. The food was terrible but the conversationw as good. He started a new White Wolf campaign I think I'll get into and he was describing it to me. The campaign is basically... 5 or 6 werecritters (a couple werewolves, a six armed weretiger, a wereUNICORN and I may play a Wereraven.

What else?
Yay, [livejournal.com profile] kareila got a livejournal! I'm quite ecstatic about this since I've had... very very limited contact with her since I left Snoopydance. We're both busy and the only way we could keep up with each other was a club like Snoopydance, so I asked her to get an LJ, gave her one of my codes (that I horde like gold :) ) and she got one :)

The little one simulatenously worries and amuses me. Bandit, apparently, can't jump too well. He can get up on my bed and mom's by climbing.. but he can't jump well at all. Mom's worried about it, but I THINK he'll learn on his own. I dunno.. what do y'all in LJ land think?

What else? Meeting on Thursday for the Lake Ontario project. Probably nothing major.

I guess I'll wrap this up. Ciao

The little one is getting used to life in his new home (and the other cats are getting used to life with a new kitten.) He's such a cutie :) Wish we knew why he was still sneezy, though... is it a draft? allergies? hmm.. if it doesn't go away soon, we may have to call a vet and ask. Whatever it is, despite Josh's fears, he doesn't seem to be giving it to the other cats *knock on wood*

I saw the Royal Tannenbaums yesterday. It was... OK. I thought it would be alot cuter.. alot funnier. I can't imagine why Jeff Simon named it one of the best movies of 2001. It... isn't. It's a cute story of a very screwed up family and that's about it.

I'm really grumpy.. grumpy at so called friends. This happens every once in a while when an event happens that's important enough to me that it makes me have to question who really cares about me and who is, I guess you could say relegated to the list of people I'm friendly with, but not friends of.
*moves people around*

In good news, I hope to be meeting [profile] trillain again soon.. for lunch somewhere. Just to talk and see each other. We've only met once before last summer at the Galleria Mall, which was cool except for the two hours wandering around the mall, bit :)
In bad news, I don't believe I shall ever be meeting [livejournal.com profile] kolys, [livejournal.com profile] tallin. They're obviously very busy individuals with so very little time to meet myself. It doesn't matter.

I've been having alot of thoughts about friends lately.. friends gone, friends soon to be gone (caught up with their own lives), friends dating friends.
That's the really sucky part of the internet. I have friends all over the US (and bits of Canada) and I can't meet most of them when I need to chat or hang.
I can't complain that they've all become so busy with their own lives.. I have too.... I'm rarely seen on Chaotic anymore. A ghost of sorts, spotted at odd hours when I have nothing left to do and am bored.
It's sad to say Chaotic means so little to me that I only appear when bored.. but can you blame me? The place is dead until afternoon or night and when it's alive, I just don't care to talk to anyone anymore except for a very few people.
I've formed my own clique.
How gauche.
That matter so little anymore anyways. Most of y'all don't care one way or the other.. and those that do.. well, most of you are on my list of people I visit to talk to anyways.

I'm lonely. One of the many people floating through life looking for someone interested and compatible with me. I know they're out there, but I haven't seen them for who they are. I'm not sure I have the time for them, despite how desperately I'd like their company.

*sigh*

Whatever. I'll post this ramble.

Name Update

Jan. 2nd, 2002 09:48 pm
hkellick: Pittsburgh, City of Bridges (Default)
the little one's name is currently Bandit. it has potential.
We now have Smokey and the Bandit.
And M&M (Mousey and Mystery)

I love kitties :) They so cutie :)
hkellick: Pittsburgh, City of Bridges (Default)
Actually, the name might change. We're still not quite sure. We were going to call him Sherlock, but mom decided she didn't quite like it... So, for now, he's Pepper.
We were worried Josh would be upset that we brought home a new kitten, but he isn't in the least. That's really good. I'm happy.
Not much else to say.. the day was quiet. Went to the SPCA, got Pepper came home, watched Pepper play and romp and be all cute and kitten'y. Went to work, picked up my check, deposited it, came home, watched Pepper... we're taking him to the vet tonite and doing a couple small errands. Otherwise, it should be quiet.

Anyways, with all due haste.. Pepper (who DOES, in fact, look quite a bit like Smokey)

And now... #1... The Larch.. No wait.. I mean.. the cat! )

It's been a looong, depressing week. I haven't posted because there's been nothing TO post. I'd stay home, look at the snow, shovel, come back inside and watch movies. No gym, no going out, nothing.
Today I have alot to report.
Today I think I experienced the highs and lows life has to offer: from the beginning (birth.. well.. not fully.. but you'll understand) to death to everything in between.
Well, probably not everything...

The day started early. Woke up, look outside and there was SUN! The sun WAS OUT! Wooo! Woke up, got dressed, posted to livejournal etc. I took some pictures of the snow outside. I plan to shrink them and post them so that all you bastards wishing for a white christmas can see what it REALLY means... at least in Buffalo.
The driving ban had lifted, we were all in the midst of major cabin fever and we needed things.. so we made a list, checked it twice, but didn't bother figuring out who was naughy and nice.. and we headed out.
Before going out, however, I started to scour the house. My MP3 player is missing and I'm not certain where it is. At this moment, I'm pretty certain it isn't in the house. HOPEFULLY it's in my car (which is at the mechanics.)
Did I mention my car? Let me tell you.. Wednesday (in the middle of a snow storm), we brought the car into my mechanic. My first time driving in the snow... I hated it. It was NOT fun. Mom says I did a decent job of it.
Anyways, he called me Thursday. There was problems with the electrical system. Electricity was arcing and he wasn't certain why. Problem: Thursday afternoon and Friday the city shut down. The city is STILL in a state of emergency and not dug out (as you can tell by reading [livejournal.com profile] phinnia's livejournal. So, as far as I know, he hasn't been able to locate the problem yet, forget being certain how to fix it and how much it will cost. So the car is at the mechnics and HOPEFULLY the mp3 player is in it. Otherwise, I need a new one. I can't work out without it... it's just waaaay too boring to do cardio without SOMETHING to listen to. The radio may work for a day or two (and I may try it tommorow), but I'll probably get bored of it quickly.
Life lesson #1: Shit happens. It just happens. You make the best of it and move on. I don't really want an extra expense to get a new mp3 player, but I need something, so i'll get something.
So... anyways... we need to go out.
First stop... Tops Supermarket. Got some stuff for homemade spaghetti sauce, some milk stuff like that. Nothing special. Just keep in mind we have frozen onions and milk in the car.
Stop two... I KNOW I mentioned my mom is hell-bent on getting a kitten, right? So she drives all the way to the SPCA (luckily, it's open and accessable) to A) get pre-approval so that when she FINDS a kitten, she can adopt it no problem and B) look for kittens.
I (silly me) figure there's absosmurfly no way that there will be kittens. The SPCA has been closed for a couple of days.. how would they get there? I was wrong.
There were 7 kittens there when we came in. Not all of them were "good enough" for us. Two were longhairs and we prefer shorthair breeds (partly because brushing kittens is not easy nor fun and partly because we just like the way they look better. When we think of cat, we think of something along the lines of an american shorthair, applehead siamese or russian blue. Not a long-haired persian or even a Maine Coone with the big fluffy tail.), one was a hisser... there were three that got out attention, though.
One was a little orange and yellow striped kitten (you'd probably call it tiger) who was happily chasing a toy mouse around the play room. I had dreams of calling such a cat Spitfire or FireBolt or something akin to that.
The next was a little grey cat who reminded me of Smokey without the white in his fur. He was trying very hard to get the ball out of one of those toys where the ball is in a circular track. It kept trying and trying and we thought it was very cute (We like playful troublemaker type of cats.)
The next was a little mostly black cat who LOVED the teaser I was shaking around. It jumped and lunge and was too cute.
So mom was like "we need to decide." and it was a difficult decision. In the end, I think it was when I lifted the little grey one and it put it's head on my sweatshirt and looked sweet that decided it for us. So we got the little grey one.
When I say we got, I don't mean we brought it home. Tommorow they're closed. Monday, he'll get fixed, Tuesday they're closed and Wednesday we'll bring him home.
We'll probably call him Sherlock (we were bouncing names around in the car and that one came up. Choice #2 is Shadow.) but... who knows, right?
Once I get the kitten home Wednesday, you can all expect pictures of course.
So, with that stop out of the way, next stop was Blockbusters to return some videos and return more. We ended up leaving with Saving Silverman and Scary Movie 2, which my brother wants to watch and I don't care to.
Next stop, Target. Mom is looking for photographic paper and she likes the cheap walmart and target brands which are as good as Kodak and HP, but cheaper. We also leave with a thermal top for myself and a couple of other things.
Next stop, Barnes and Nobles. Mom is looking for a certain book. No luck, though.
By then, it's about 2:00 and my belly is yelling that if we don't eat soon, it'll start eating me from inside. So we go out to eat at the Buffalo Wild Wings.
Finally, we go to Rite Aid and go home.
Listening to the messages, my friend Dave's grandmother, Eva Niles whom I knew from when I worked in Beechwood Nursing Home has passed away. Eva hasn't been the same since an accident a couple weeks back and her health has been deteriorating. I haven't gone to see her because I don't want to think of her as any way besides how she was when I worked there (more on this in a few). So I told Dave I'll be at her Funeral (Monday morning at 11:00).
Issue: Monday is New Years Eve and we were SUPPOSED to have a big New Years Eve bash, but he's not up to it (he wasn't looking forward to it anyways, for a few reasons none of which I'll discuss.) I suggested that we modify the bash to a few small friends and I'd be glad to host. In other words, if he can get away from his family, come to my house... hopefully we can get Carl, his girlfriend, maybe our mutual friend TJ. Whatever. Just a small Friendly New Years Eve party.
I hope it happens. I really do. I don't wanna be stuck spending New Years Eve with my mom. I love her, but.. that's not my idea of a blast of a time. On the other hand, mom says if it doesn't happen, we'll try to go see a movie, so that's cool.
Eva Niles... I remember her very well, even if she never remembered my name, she certainly remembered me. She hassled me and I hassled her (and for people who know me, that's how I treat the people I love. I give them hard times and joke with them.)
I remember that the nurses (who disturbed and angered me because I never felt like they cared a bit... well, most of them.) complaining that she'd take these fortified orange drinks, bring them into her room to drink and forgot about them completely. They went bad and the nurses had to clean it up. She was such a matchmaker. She'd always ask me.. am I married? She'd often point to some of the female workers on the floor and said "I bet she's single. You should ask her." She'd also come and help me put table clothes on the tables. It gave her someone to talk to when her family wasn't here. I remember, she loved to play bingo. (she loved all the activities. Hell, she was jewish and she'd go to the catholic masses and stuff, because she wanted to be out and about and do things.) One day, I was her "lucky charm". I came over (having finished my floor) to help her play bingo and as I sat, she won not once but twice. If I saw her in her room, she'd offer me one of her many peppermint patties her family would give her.
I do remember Eva Niles. She was... definately a personality. (Much like the rest of her family)
Continuing on with the day...
After calling Dave and taking a nap, we went out AGAIN. This time, we started off at Rite Aid (her last prescription had recieved part of a shipment, so she got some.). we went off to the mall and, despite the fact that I figured it would be swamped, it wasn't. We were at the mall to look for thermals for my mom and a snowblower (all sold out. Surprise Surprise, I guess.)
Then we went to Walmart where I got some more thermals, some of my flavored water (yum!) and a bedspread for my mom.
Came home, watched Saving Silverman and then watched the news.
Now they're saying we might want to stay home tommorow due to blizzard-like conditions (not because of new snow coming done, but high wings resuspending the snow into the air and whiting out our vision. Not to mention a REALLY cold Wind Chill.)
Let the frustrations continue.
And so, that's my day... a new family member, the death of a person I liked and frustrations with life.
I guess I'll post this and head to bed. Good night everyone. Have a safe and warm New Years Eve if I don't write before then. And wish me luck in finding something cool to do!

Greetings and Decapitations, my dear Livejournal readers.
It's been an interesting couple of days (isn't it always?)
Christmas came and went. As, no doubt, most of you saw Buffalo made it into the national news again for having an awful lot of snow at one time. I got hit with the majority of it (Buffalo got about a foot. We, here in Amherst, got about a foot and a half. Plus.. whatever from last night. Add 1/4 foot or so.)
I'm sick of being on the national news for shit like this.
The worst part is we really got it Monday... mom had one accident and one skid out.
The accident happened right outside the SPCA (more on this later) where she hit one rock, jumped a bit and landed on another. These were BIG rocks, too. Anyways, by the looks of it she landed with her front axle on the rock. Luckily with the help with three other guys who were also there to adopt, we jacked the car and pushed it off the rock.
And went home.
To slide going down Campbell Boulevard because no one plowed till really late

(begin rant)
I'm really ticked about that. SOMEONE.. not only in Buffalo, but Amherst and Tonawanda and what not is NOT doing their job. We had at least 12 hours notice for this big storm Monday and no one was out at all for at least 6 hours! SOMEONE wasn't ready! For that matter, the big streets weren't very well plowed yesterday after it started snowing hard again.
I agree that the weathermen don't always know what they are talking about, but they all predicted Monday's storm at least 12 hours in advance. For that matter, Channel 4, at least, predicted a small storm last night they weren't ready for!
Come on people. This is Buffalo! We get lake effect snow! Keep the damn roads safe for us!
Idiots.
(end rant)

So due to heavy snow, we didn't go out as hoped Christmas Night to see my grandmother. We rented videos and watched those instead. Seen a few really good movie so far ans we have a few left.
I think I may buy Moulin Rouge. I haven't seen it in it's entierty, but I was dying at how amusingly terrible it was.

So yesterday came and went, we watched a couple more videos, I slipped out to play some D&D 3rd edition with my friend Dave (not a particularly serious campaign. We have a half-elf who despises humans, a gnome female who TIED the half-elf up to a tree and "mounted" him, a gnome with two orcish weapons and magical cups (I GOT CUPS!) and.. myself.. an elven were-panther druid.
In a way it wasn't a pity it wasn't serious. Dave (the GM) spent so much time screwing people that the story itself got kinda lost at times, but it was fun anyways!
Then last night we went to grandma's for dinner instead.
Holy shit, you should SEE the amounts of Christmas Candy Laura (my grandmother's upstairs neighbor who really likes us) gave us for christmas!

And today we'll watch more videos, go out and do some errands (weather permitting) and.. go BACK to the SPCA.
I'm pretty sure I mentioned last time that my mom hopes to get a kitten again? Well.. she's hell bent on it. So she intends to, if she slip away from Joshua (who says he's dead set against it, but will gladly accept a fuzzy kitty. He's strange in some ways.) to go to the SPCA today to go to take a look.
I'm, personally, a bit leery about bringing in a kitten only because A) they are expensive and B) it will disrupt the family. That said... I know mom when she gets in these moods. She's GOING to get a kitten.
I'm just going along to make sure she gets a good one.
(Yeah, right)

That's all I can think of to say for now.
Peace to all my peeps, yo!
hkellick: Pittsburgh, City of Bridges (Default)
It's snowing.
and snowing.
and snowing some more.
Winter has officially arrived in Buffalo. With a bang.
And silly us.. we were out there.
As you may or may not remember. Today was the day I went to the dentist to get the crack in my tooth fixed.
As it turns out, it's not a crack. It's a stain of some sort. So I'll get it buffed out Friday. I'll go back Friday to get a filling put in too.
Blah, I hate drills.

What else? I haven't written since Saturday so y'all don't know I went to see LotR with the family and a bunch of friends Saturday.
That makes #2.
I plan to see it again maybe at the end of the week on the big IMAX screen too. That oughta be cool.
Did I mention I really love this movie?

We're thinking we might see a (non-LotR) movie tommorow. Or maybe rent one. The problem with christmas is that EVERYTHING closes...We (weather permitting) will be going to my grandma's for dinner tommorow. Other than that, no real plans...

Did I mention my weight for the week? Here goes... 259.5 :D I'm under 260 :D Go me :)

So, my mom is talking about getting a new kitten again. I think she's serious. She really fell in love with Merlin and is still very upset that he died. She's talking about going to the SPCA Wednesday. We'll see, I guess...
I can't deny I wouldn't like a new kitten.. still...

Well, I guess I'll go and work on my web site a while. Ciao folksies!
hkellick: Pittsburgh, City of Bridges (Default)
Well.. first off... *ahem* I HAVE HARRY POTTER TICKETS FOR TONITE! :D :D :D
Right! Now that I've gotten THAT off my chest...

What's new? Well.. I'm feeling better now. A couple of nights of good sleep and The Sims: Hot Date has helped my mood incredibly.

The Sims: Hot Date.. yes.. I got that Wednesday. It's as cool as I'd hoped! :) I love the new interactions.. I love downtown and I love trying to go out on dates (even if I'm not good at it yet... All in all, it's a GREAT addition to The Sims (so much better than House Party.. though.. the addition of House Party is nice because I can now make dance clubs and stuff with the dancefloor.) All in all, I love it and I suggest you Sim Freaks GO GET IT! NOW!

Had the UBEESC meeting today... once again.. barely ANYONE came, but.. we have some plans to get some people next semester and they're good plans, so..plus, we're hoping to go to Chicago next year for WEFTEC (Water and Environment Councel something something conference) which is this HUUUGE Conference for Environmental Engineers and those who work in "The Industry". Some of us (not I) want this year and thought it was GREAT and LOVED it, so I'll try to go next year :D

And did I mention I'M GOING TO SEE HARRY POTTER TONITE?!?!?!
Yes? Oh.. Ok...

November TMBG Unlimited came out yesterday... it's... lacking somewhat. There are a couple of good songs (some of the live material is good.. I LOVE Fingertips!), but I like the NEW stuff, personally.. ya know? I loved it when they were giving out the new material. Ah well, right?

What else? Oh.. check THIS out. Doesn't this ROCK?!?!?! One of the citizens at ChaoticMUX drew it for the Winter Holiday Party (I hope to be able to make this and any other pictures made into christmas cards.) I'm hoping I can convince [livejournal.com profile] doubletake to draw a few too. Between the two of them, we should have lots and lots of cool pictures and that will ROCK!

My brother just called... he made Select Chorus! Go Josh! Congrats Josh...

and SPEAKING of Josh.. a poem Josh wrote Wednesday Night in order of Merlin. Let me quote it for you...
(As a note, he's still playing with it..)

Whirlin' Merlin
By Joshua Kellick

My name was Merlin
And if you had a lap, I would go curlin'

I loved everyone and everything I knew
I was happy that I got to know you

Once I was carried through the front door
You all showed me a love I never knew before

Do not be sad that I am gone
Just think of me when the clock hits dawn

Remember the fun we had
Remember that I was an angel and never bad

Picture me pouncing you when you least expect it
And how I purred when I used you to knit

I was your best friend
And always will be

Do not cry
That is the key

I will wait for you in heaven
We will rejoice
And we will play like you used to when you were seven

I must go now
But do not forget
The happy times we had
And promise me you will stop being sad


And now... the quote of the day
****
Hermione: It's called the Devil's Snare....oh... It likes the dark and damp....
Ron: So light a fire then!
Hermione: (wringing her hands) Right, but there's no wood!
Ron: HAVE YOU GONE NUTS? ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?!
Hermione: Oh right!

-From "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by J.K. Rowling

It's 6:21
I think I only got MAYBE 5 1/2 hours or sleep last night.
Something tells me I'm going to have a short workout and go home, exhausted, and try to nap.

To all my friends who replied to my post last night, I thank you.

I would like to believe in the Rainbow Bridge. Maybe little merlin did wake up somewhere surrounded by little kids to love him and other baby animals to scamper with. I think he'd love that...wish I could see it. Especially as he tried to pounce their tails or scamper around happily.
I wish I could see a little more of it for myself now.

In an exhaustion-prone state I had an epitome: Litltle Merlin, white as snow, was an angel (I'm not going to bicker here on the definition of what I mean by an angel. It doesn't matter!). For three weeks he was in our lives and brought happiness and joy and love and youth and vitality. He wasn't perfect... he was mischievious and naughty as all kittens are wont to do, but he never got into any REAL trouble... his biggest mischief was pouncing toes and fingers at 3AM and purring happily when we woke up so that we'd pet him.
I would still have prefered it have been longer, but I thank Merlin whererver he is for having brought so much joy into our lives.

In any case, I still have four more fuzzy bundle of joys who need me. (And whom I need, atm, also). In the end, I think that's what helped me get over the death of my dog Sir Lancelot 3 years back.. because cleo and smokey were cute and fuzzy and it was hard to mourn his loss as they cuddled up next to me and purred or went around doing their kitten antics.

At 10:10 PM on November 13, 2001, Merlin "Hot Stuff" Kellick died. He was only about four months old. We had had him for near three weeks.
Cause of death: massive trauma to his abdomen and organs inside. He was stepped on... by me.

[profile] malytwotails once said that when little kittens die they go to a place where dead children went and entertained them and made them smile. Something about over the rainbow.. I don't remember all the details. I pray that that is true. That little hot stuff is somewhere making someone else as happy as he made us when he was here.

I'm so upset I can't even begin to describe it. I can't put words to my sorrow.
I know I can't blame myself.. accidents happen.. but in some way I do.. I killed him... and even though he'll forgive me (the vet swears he never knew what had happened) and you'll all forgive me, I'm not sure I can forgive myself.

I can't think of much else to say but this..
Rest in Peace, Hot Stuff... you weren't here very long, but you brought alot of joy into our lives and we loved you. Thank you for that.

Well, as promised, I said I'd post my average weight and I shall.
Are you ready?
You sure?
OK, then!
Drumroll please!
*drumroll*
And my current average weight is...
are you sure you want to hear this?
What do you MEAN "Get on with already!"
Well FINE THEN!
*ahem*
And my current average weight is..
AH-CHOO!
Damn dust.
Never anyone around here to clean up these sort of things.
Well *I* don't know why there's a pile of dust over there!
Fine, I *AM* getting on with it!
And my current average weight is... 277 lbs!
There, see? Isn't that special?
Good, then!

In other news, Merlin (the new kitten) is an adorable little dork. As dorky as they come, is Merlin. And a little purr-factory to boot! I hope he isn't TOO lonely up in Josh's room all by his lonesome.
Poor kitty :(

I am never letting my mother go into pet stores anymore. Especially if the SPCA or Paws and Claws or similair people are there.
My mom got yet another kitten.
Her reason.. she missed having a kitten in the house.
Nevermind that at least two of the cats nearly flipped when we got the last kitten, Mystery.
Nevermind how we'll end up paying for him.
Nevermind tha tif HER mother finds out or her uncle, that they'll hit the roof and we're fuxx0red.
So we now have a new kitten: Merlin. This one is mom's (for those that keep count.. two are mine (One, Mystery, was bought for me cause I wanted a little black cat. The other, Smokey, has sort of adopted me) and one is Josh's (that's Mr. Mouse. Officially we adopted mouse for Josh.)
Cleo is.. no one's, exactly. She'll get sorted out later. She'll either stay with Mouse or Merlin.. or MAYBE Smokey. (I wouldn't mind taking Cleo AT ALL)

What else?
Hmm.. not much. I'll post my weight tommorw and I'm hardly complaining on that front.

Like I said in I THINK the last post.. I've been very busy. Very very busy.. hopefully I'll be a little less so this week. Being a grad student is ALOT of work, dammit! But.. I'm catching up.

Finally saw Lethal Weapon 2 and 3 yesterday. Very cool. I'll have to rent Lethal Weapon 4 soon and enjoy it :)
I think I'm getting into Cake.
Cake is cool.
So are cookies.
