I JUST WANT TO SAY:


AWW, LOOKIT MY NEW LITTLE TURTLE <33.
(omfg my hand looks sooo weird. I'm blaming that on the angle. My thumb is really not gigantic and my fingers are not super-short, wtf
OKAY I had to take another picture of my hand. But there's also Finey, so. aeltyasei IT STILL LOOKS WEIRD. It doesn't look like that when I LOOK at my hand, just in the pictures... D:)

I totally love little reptile figurines XD FOR PROOF HERE IS ONE OF MY SHELVES:



And I also have these little guys, who don't have a place on a shelf yet (and can't stay here, or cats/child will get them):


They were called "sandbags".

CAN YOU BELIEVE THEY WERE ONLY $1.99 IN A ZOO GIFT SHOP. I seriously would have expected like, at least $5.99. I got the lizard and turtle, and Emmy got a sparkly elephant Dustin tried repeatedly to get her to name "Elephanty". I also got a shirt, but it's just grey with the lines of a tiger face and says NIABI ZOO MOLINE ILLINOIS or something like that.

ALSO ALSO I've got some really good pics from the zoo yesterday, but today I'm really going to try to WRITE because I miss my guys soooo much. Dustin's off at Riverboat Days to see life-size Rock 'Em Sock 'Em robots; I gave the camera to him, to get pictures, which is why these pictures suck--my phone camera doesn't have a flash, and apparently likes to get really blurry. It's a great camera when you're outside!

Whoo, four hours of sleep. I was up until after one, mostly because I thought maybe, just maybe, [livejournal.com profile] lilenth could be reasoned with. Nope! I saw I had another comment from her this morning, but deleted it without reading. I have more important shit to do than talk in circles because some dipshit has communication/comprehension problems and is too arrogant and obtuse to realise/admit they're wrong. Some people are just persecuted by the masses, u guiz
(Though like I told Kelly, I was having fun bonding with her and [livejournal.com profile] kiptripsyc over the massive fail we were collectively witnessing. It's terribly frustrating to spell a notion out to the exact letter and watch someone repeatedly Not Get It, but it was also hilarious. <3 you guys)

Emmy's watching Wonderpets for the first time in...weeks, at least. I was thinking she didn't like them anymore, which would have truly been sad--they have awesome songs, okay. It's also not terribly hot today, same yesterday, so I'm thinking tomorrow it'll probably be a billion degrees with a hundred and forty seven percent humidity. Having to be at work an extra half-hour because of our new mandatory unpaid meal breaks sucks, though today I started listening to It, and the huge huge long almost teal deer intros to each of the main characters passed most of the time. I was really pissed for about two hours because I had to move to someone else's station so someone else could use mine, as clients were visiting, and the one I had to sit at had an entirely different keyboard, which I loathed. The screen was also lower, which meant I had to crane my neck all around, and my neck and back really started to hurt after like ten minutes. And, of course, it took me a week and a half to log into the fucking system, and because we only have that half-hour break, the time it took for the system to accept my passwords and such counted against my productivity. Argh.

I'm still so far behind on reading...I've skimmed most of the stuff I've seen posted, but I haven't had time (even before my exercise in futility last night) to read thoroughly and comment yet, so I'll save it for when I can give something other than "I RED DIS". I've written a few things, but they're not ready to be posted yet. I'd really like to get this one piece I started months ago finished, but it seems like every time I open it, the characters involved go "BRB READING WAR AND PEACE. IN BRAILLE~" or something. TRUST ME YOU GUYS, YOU WANT TO FINISH THIS SCENE. (Of course, they have no trouble whatsoever going through it in my head while I'm a work and can't write anything down, jerks)

Here are some other thoughts:

~ ...the Wonderpets are putting oil on a dinosaur.
~ Mmm, cashews
~ Quizno's > Subway. Not in nutrition/weight loss capabilities, but definitely in taste.
~ I was going to buy moar tea vodka, but then I didn't. THIS WEEKEND, THOUGH
~ YES DUSTIN, I KNOW YOU WANT THE FLIPPING RIVER PICTURES
~ No more bird sightings in the house (SO FAR THIS WEEK). I figure two in twenty minutes is about the limit I can deal with for another five years. Yes, yes, at least they weren't bats...
~ I tried to clip Welly's claws last night, but some of them are like...splintering? Peeling? Idk :\ She didn't seem like they were bothering her, but I don't speak cat.
~ I almost seriously want to get a bb gun for the guys across the street that come rolling up with the bass in their speakers rattling my monitor on my desk. REALLY, YOU GUYS??
~ AND SEMAGIC ISN'T WORKING FOR POSTING arrr I hate using the "post entry" box.

Imma go put on a pizza for me and Emmy's dinner--last night I forgot to eat dinner and have only eaten a small frozen meal (turkey/cornbread stuffing/apples), so...idc, I'm eating pizza. And, um, broccoli. Yes.

OH GOD SO REMEMBER (some of you won't) IN 2005 WHEN THERE WERE BATS IN OUR APARTMENT

YEAH THERE WAS JUST A BIRD IN HERE

A BIG GIANT BLACK BIRD

AET4Y8Q34GWOIKA

oh my goddddd you guys omg omg omg omg omg

I heard it YAPPING/chittering in the laundry area, and thought it was the CATS talking to each other. Then Dustin's all "UM BIRD" and I'm like "WHAAA" and then it comes FLYING IN HERE

Illy and Finey were both trying to get it. Dustin says Illy had it on top of the dryer, but let it go for some reason. I gave Dustin the broom and he smacked it, then Illy attacked it again. There are blood and feathers on the rug in front of the door, where he swept it outside after brushing Illy away from it.

HOW DID IT GET IN HERE

IDEC, BIRD, YOU JUST GTFO


so that's about enough excitement for today, amirite


EDIT: APPARENTLY NOT, BECAUSE THERE WAS ANOTHER BIRD IN HERE:





NEED MOAR CATS

I think we just possibly have the stupidest mice in the world.

I mean, seriously. How many mice do you really see RUN DIRECTLY INTO THE CAT. He is not Tom and you are not Jerry, and he is going to win.


I was getting Emmy ready for bed in the bathroom when I see a small furry streak zip out from under the bathroom cabinet and behind the toilet. I yanked Emmy out into the hall and opened the bedroom door, where we stash Ily while we're eating (since he won't stop for hell or high water when someone has food). He was anxiously waiting there to be released, so I grabbed him and tossed him over by the tub. The mouse was in the corner, so he didn't see it, and tried to run out. I grabbed him and tossed him back. After the third time, he just looked at me like "what in the FUCK is your problem?" He was lying/crouching down and watching me...and I see the mouse come out and apparently try to go UNDER him. He feels it, and then snatches it. I tell Emmy to wait in her room since she's lingering in the hallway and making whiny sounds, then keep an eye on Ily, who's biting it and repeatedly catching it when it tries to make another break for it. It's a resilient little fucker, but Ily's really playing with it more than anything else. He gets it to the point where it can't really run, and I grab the glass container we usually keep Q-Tips in (which was empty), and bring it down over the mouse, then find a piece of cardboard (the back cover off a notebook was the first thing I found) to stick under it, to take it out to the trash bin. I told Ily he was a good boy lots of times and petted him, then gave him a slice of turkey lunchmeat for a treat (and because we're out of cat food and I couldn't stop at the store on the way home from work since I had Emmy and she's getting sick again).

So yeah. Score another point for the cat. That's at least three mice he's gotten so far, all within the last couple of weeks.

In other news, I may have figured out today how my NaNo is going to end!! I need to find someone to talk it over with, and write down more notes, and there needs to be a lot more details (reasons why one of the very main characters won't be present even though he should be, for one), but it feels good! I WAS GETTING WORRIED. Also need moar notes for the possible co-write. Good thing the weekend is coming and we were promised no work Saturday--it can all be prep.
