Kitty Laryngitis?

The other day I noticed that Kittie couldn't meow.
She would open her mouth and nothing would come out,
or if it did, it would be a little scratchy noise.
So on Friday I took her to the vet and found out
she has Laryngitis.
Apparently cats get that too.
I over paid the doctor and took her home to give her
the medicine, which caused me to get ripped to shreds
by her back claws.
But she's been doing better and now she can get out
a squeak that sounds like a screaming child.
It makes me laugh.
Unfortunately I have to give her this medicine at 8:30 AM
and PM so my weekend has been quite uneventful.
I haven't really been able to go out or sleep in.
But I love my kitty so it's worth it if she feels better.

Things I've seen lately...

Devil - Usually I'm not a fan of Shyamalan movies. He
didn't direct it but he co-wrote it so I thought I'd give
it a try.
It was ok. I thought the concept was pretty original and
it was creepy for the most part. But
I was not a fan of the end. I really thought the
part of the devil could have been portrayed better.
Overall it was ok though. I'd watch it again if someone
wanted to see it.

The Kids Are Alright - Although the movie as a whole
I thought was quite fantastic, again I was disappointed
by the end.
The whole movie was really fun and a good story.
But the end I thought left a lot of things un-answered.
Unless that's how it was suppose to go to be
cohesive to the story.
Which makes sense since no one in the movie knew
what was going to happen in their lives.
In that case the movie was a must see, I just wished I
knew what happened.

Skins (British) - I'm really not sure if I like this show.
I guess I do since I keep watching it but I'm
not sure if I REALLY do.
I'll probably stop watching after season two since
there are new characters in three.
I'm not sure if I'll watch the American version either.
Kind of confused with this one....
It's a little exaggerated for my taste and at times
just plain ridiculous.

Spartacus - Bad ass. That's all.

Greek - Always fantastic. One of the favs.

Greys Anatomy - Really wish they would stop ending
episodes on a cliff hanger and then playing re-runs for
three weeks. Dumb.

Occasional Musing #2

Sometimes a big secret is exciting and fun.
When no one is suppose to know you
feel like you're living outside the law and
you're doing something wrong.
That makes it pretty cool.

Sometimes I wanna yell it from the
top of a mountain!

As cliche as it sounds, sometimes I want
to write nice things about it on facebook
and go out in public with everyone
I want to break all the rules.
I can't yell it from a mountain top.
I can't write about it on facebook or blogspot.
I can't go into public with everyone knowing.
I will settle for dangerous and exciting.
I will live outside the law and be
happy about it because I would rather
have a big secret than none at all.

I'm just blowing in the wind....

If I was season, I'd be autumn.

If I was a piece of furniture, I'd be a hammock.

If I was a country, I'd be England.

If I was a food, I'd be mashed potatoes.

If I was a flower, I'd be dandelion, blowing in the wind.

If I was a song, I'd be Banana Pancakes.

If I was an instrument, I'd be the stand up bass.

If I was a color, I'd be pumpkin orange.

If I was a letter, I'd be a hidden note in your pocket,
telling you to have a splendid day.

If I was a book, I'd be a fantasy.

If I was a time of day, I'd be dusk.

If I was a drink, I'd be hot tea.

If I was a holiday, I'd be Today.

If I was a store, I'd be Omerica Organic.

If I was a word, I'd be fancy.

If I was a person, I'd be me.

If I could know the future, I'd want wonderful things for you and I.

If I were a pinata, I'd be bursting with insults and taco meat....

My bother just got back from a meeting about
his son, Jesse.
Not to get into too much detail for his privacy,
but basically he's been having lots of trouble
with him and moved him to a "group home" type thing
for problem teenagers and whatnot.
Every time he comes back from one of these
meetings he's always so depressed and hard to
I love my brother very much and it's hard for me
to watch him so upset all the time.
I know it's not my job but I really wish one
day I could find a way to make him truly happy.
Even if it's winning the lottery and giving
him enough to make his life comfortable instead
of all the money problems that come with having six
kids and one that needs care.

Maybe it's the horrible vibe radiating in
the office where me and Larry work, or just
one of those days, but I am quite
So many things make me mad today.
  1. The office manager is yelling at Britney for no reason, and I get WAY defensive when Brit's upset.
  2. Stupid people with this dumb ass horoscope thing, who cares? I never read my horoscope anyways. Just let it go, nothing you can do about it and if it really upsets you that much just ignore it and be what you always were.
  3. I'm starving.
  4. My brother being sad.
  5. Not having this damn Mustangs cheer logo so I can finish my work. Honestly lady it doesn't take long to email a logo so your pictures can be printed. I'd imagine you'd want them ASAP. Well I finished all but the team pictures cause I'm awesome and get stuff done super fast, but I'm only human. Not a mind reader that can access your thoughts, retrieve the logo image and then re-create it with my bad ass photoshop skills.
  6. Guitar tabs being Chinese and not being able to practice so I don't feel like a loser with no hobbies. Someone please teach me how to read them cause I feel dumb.
  7. Working everyday so I can't get plastered at Fox and Hound.
  8. I want to go home.
  9. Deciding whether or not applying for a Best Buy credit card to get a laptop would be ok or if it will plumit me into a spiraling black hole of debt from which I will never return.
  10. Not knowing how to spell simple words cause I decided not to pay attention in school. I'm very smart and can form intelligent sentances but no one takes you seriously if all the words are spelled wrong. On the plus side I used spell check this whole time and it hasn't found any mistakes, so maybe I'm getting better. Or it's just a shitty blog spell check and I'm going to sound unintelligent this whole time.
Since I always try to look at things positively,
I should end with happy vibes.
Don't hate, you don't want to put that
out into the universe.
On the plus I get to go home early due
to running out of work here.
Man friend will be coming over later :) and
I don't have to work tomorrow so we can sleep
Ok I'm done venting. It was pointless and
juvinile but I feel better.
And that's really all that matters.

P.S. Just checked and the "spell check" most definitely
isn't working.
And so comes the wave of self loathing
for feeling stupid while you all laugh at my
Should be a good time.

It's been real.

Mumford and Sons

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine
Together we can see what we can find
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside
You told me that I would find a home,
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal,
And all the while my character it steals
The darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I seek
It seems as if all my bridges have been burned,
You say that’s exactly how this grace thing works
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive at the restart
The darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I seek
The darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I seek
The darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I seek
Stars hide your fires,
And these here are my desires
And I will give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my steak stuck in this ground
Marking its territory of this newly impassioned soul
But you, you’ve come too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine

Let the fur fly...

We added a new kitten to our household a few weeks ago.
(Two kittens to be exact)
But only one has had free reign of the house so far.
It goes without saying that Kittie (my cat) is
REALLY not happy about this but
she's just acting weird.
Britney had a cat at our old apartment and
Kittie didn't like her but she still co-existed without
too much conflict.
They still shared a litter box and played on occasion.
But since Marley died and Brit got Trixie, she
refuses to go in the same litter box and
spends all her time in my room.
So far I've had to get Kittie her own litter
box and I'll probably have to move her
food upstairs as well if she continues to starve herself.
Since I've gotten the second box she's been
much happier but I still can't get her
to go downstairs or stand up for herself when
Trixie comes into her territory.
She just runs and hides under my papasan chair.

So I started reading this book Natalie gave me called "Cat vs. Cat".
It basically tells you how to create an environment
where two or more cats can live in
harmony with each other.
Obviously Kittie is not the dominant cat
since she chooses to hide instead of fight or
Which is not necessarily a bad thing as long
as they're not fighting.
As much as I wish she could get along with
the other cats, or even with other people,
she was raised to have only me until two years
Since she's nine years old it takes longer to adjust
to stressful situations like a new
addition to the house or things of that matter.

Unfortunately the book only has information on
how to make the transition for the new cat
a less traumatizing experience
and doesn't really go into any details
on what to do if an existing cat
is the one freaking out.
So I'm still pretty stumped on how to make
life easier on Kittie.

Kitten Mitten.

Occasional Musing #1

I had all these things i wanted to write.
To him.
To her.
But then i realized, what good would it do?
You think you're right and i think you're wrong.
Do i feel bad for what happened to you two and a half months ago?
I wish i did but i don't.
What you did was childish and spiteful.
If life was street fighter i would VS you right now.
OK I'm done with that, not worth my time.

Knock you into the great white north.

Goodbye 2010

We're heading into a new year already.
To say that 2010 flew by would be an epic understatement.
I'm not sure why but 2010 went faster than any of my past years and looking back it couldn't have
been because something interesting happened....cause it didn't.

As a whole, 2010 turned out to be ok, despite the horrendously aweful start.
I think everyone that was there would agree that new years 2010 was the WORST
new years in exhistance and will go down in my history so.
I'm not going to get into all the crazy details, but it was horrible, believe me.
And for the fist few months i wasn't exactly a happy camper, due to many of the events happening
on new years and events that followed after.
I'd say once April/May came around everything started to go ok.
Had a lot of fun, loved, lost and all the normal stuff.
To say that it was a great year would be a bit of a stretch though.
Good is sufficient.

Onto 2011!
So far the start to the year was 150% better than last year. But we could
have been locked out of the house, froze to death, and eventually been eaten by
wild dogs and it would have still been better than last year.
I strive to make this a year great.
How you ask?
I have absolutely no idea, but it's worth a try.
