I love how Michelina's tv dinners are called something like "chicken and broccoli alfredo" and then consist of hardly any broccoli or chicken and a BUNCH of noodles. Seriously, there is so little non-noodle stuff in there that it looks like the chunks fell in by mistake. All of their dinners are like that. I guess that's what you get when you buy it for a dollar. At least the alfredo sauce is really tasty.

I've been so unmotivated at work lately. All I want to do is stay home with Jeremy and play with the cats.

Here's our master bathroom before yesterday (actually this was way back before we even bought the house):

Here's our master bathroom now: )

And for good measure, here's an adorable picture of the two cutest ones in my life (you wouldn't believe how long they sat that way before I got the picture): )

1. Do you have any pets? If so, how many, and what are their names?
One cat, a grey and white domestic shorthair named Phoebe.

2. What was your very first pet? Do you remember its name?
The earliest pet I can remember was a white dog named Lobo. I don't remember what breed she was, but she looked kind of like a yellow labrador retriever...but white and with pointy ears. My mom adopted her from a family after she had given birth to puppies, and we kept her for several years. Eventually we had to give her to my grandparents when we moved into a tiny apartment that didn't allow pets, and she lived with them until she died of some kind of mouth cancer when I was about 12 years old. She was a good dog, and that's a lot coming from a cat person.

3. Is there an animal you would never have as a pet?
I like animals that you can pet or cuddle, so although I've had them before I'm not terribly fond of aquarium pets.

4. What common pet have you always wanted but never had? Why not?
I wanted a horse really badly when I was young, but I never got one. I've also wanted to try keeping rabbits, but that never worked out either.

5. What wild animal (extinct or not) would you own if you didn't have to worry about its adjustment or the cost of captivity?
For some reason I went through a phase where I wanted foxes and raccoons. Any kind of wild canine or feline species would be fun. I had a wolf when I was 13, and he was the best pet I've ever had.

PS: KAYLA!! Thank you for the Christmas card!! I got it a few days ago, but I suck at remembering to thank people for things. :)

OMG. My mother shaved her cat! )

Now that that's out of my system, I have to say that I wasn't all that impressed with the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy. The stuff on Izzie was good, but everything else was just...blah. That's a type of episode you need in the middle of the season, not the one that you kick everything off with. There was absolutely no suspense.

How did the she-Shephard end up with Meredith's underwear?

God damn it, Heather. Get off the fucking computer and go DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFE! You have a shower to take, a cat to feed, work to do, money to make, a senior thesis to construct, a Spanish test-out to study for, the GRE to study for, and bills that are due today! WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU STILL SITTING HERE?!?!?!?! Most people started their day three or four hours ago and are being productive members of society. You're here writing a livejournal post to yourself, in your pajamas. You. Are. Pathetic.
miraje: (happy!)
My cat's sleeping on the living room floor. On the coffee table, there's two bottles of Bacardi and a polaroid of her acting crazy.

So what should I think?
miraje: (Default)
My cat nearly orgasms from even the scent of tuna. It's the one thing that she goes absolutely crazy over. If I drop turkey or beef or something on the floor, she won't touch it. For the longest time I thought she was vegetarian because she always ate the potato and cucumber peels, but would never so much as sample the meat. Fish is definitely a horse of a different color for her. It's too bad for her that I don't really like eating fish with the one exception of tuna. Jeremy's slowly converting me as far as processed stuff like fish sticks and battered filets go, but I have a feeling that will be as far as I will go. You all can keep your halibut, salmon, bass, trout, and walleye. I'll find my protein somewhere else, thank you very much.

My watermelon has gone bad before I've had a chance to eat it. Damn it.

I tried to eat it, too, but the inside's just soft and tastes funny. Blech. Now I have to find something else to eat.

I miss my boy. I hate these long strings of evening shifts that he works, because I'm used to waking up/going to bed early now that classes have started, but he doesn't even get home until 12:30 in the morning. Therefore our time spent together really isn't very good, because I'm dozing off half the time when I'm around him. Thankfully he has three days off next week, so we can try to make up for lost time. :)

In other news, my cat locked herself in the kitchen cabinet while I was making my food. I didn't realize she was in there until the door started to wiggle when I walked back in there about 15 minutes later. She has been in there a hundred times before, so I don't know why it still fascinates her so.

I think I'm killing Plant, and that's making me very unhappy. It was the first plant I bought for my apartment, and I was so good to it in the beginning. I bought it a fancy pot and nice soil and watered it whenever it needed it. Even when I forgot to water it for periods of time, it was such a trooper and never wilted or anything. Well, I've been spending so much time with Jeremy lately that I've neglected the poor thing. Plant looks so sick, and all its leaves are falling off. I never thought I would grow such an attachment to a potted plant. Now I'm really genuinely sad that I'm going to lose it. Sure, I'll probably replace it with another $1.00 plant from Wal-Mart, but Plant will always be the first in my heart. First the lily died that Mom bought for me, and now Plant. *sigh*

Maybe I should just stick to cats.

*smacks forehead*

A radio station in Des Moines is running a contest where some randomly selected person from a group of call-ins is going to win a million dollars. Everytime someone is the right number caller and gets their name on the list, the DJ asks them what they will do with the million. Here's the one I just heard:

DJ: "So what will you do with the money if you win?"
Caller: "I'm going to buy jewelry!"
DJ: "Nice. What kind of jewelry? You going for the diamonds?"
Caller: "Oh yeah, lots of diamonds!"

Ahem, if bling is the first thing you think of buying when you're offered a million dollars, you sure as hell do not deserve that money. What would I do with the money you may ask? I would:

a) Pay off my education that already has me almost $20,000 in debt with graduation still two and a half years away.
b) Buy a car that doesn't constantly break down, pollute the environment, and guzzle gas like there's no tomorrow.
c) Buy clothes that don't have holes and stains in them.
d) Invest the rest so I will never again have to wonder if I can afford to eat the next day or pay the rent next month.

(I also might give some money to select members of my family who are in as bad or worse a financial situation than I am right now.)

I could add a few charitable donations to that list, but given the state of human nature in this world/country, I wonder how many people actually would donate money once they had the opportunity. I also wonder if I would be criticized for the pure insignificance on the global scale of the organizations I would contribute to. I.E., who gives a rat's ass about a few dogs and cats in cages when there are people starving to death and dying of curable diseases in the world? I may burn in hell for this if there is a God, but I do not place the life of a human above the life of anything else. We are not superior to much of anything on this planet.

Whew, I don't rant like that very much anymore.

My amusement for the day: I went to the National Weather Service's main page, and the entire state of Michigan was under a tornado warning. They've fixed it now, but it was pretty damn funny to see nonetheless.

I'm going to have to drag my roommate to the grocery store today. I'm getting sick of eating ramen noodles, and my cat's going to be eating them before long, too, if I don't get her some food. Ah, the life of a college student.

I could go crazy right now. Since I got the new motherboard put in, about the same time every night, a very high pitched tone has been emanating from my computer. When I mean high pitched, I mean competing with a dog whistle or feedback from a microphone. It's not really loud or anything, but it's at just the right pitch to give me a headache and make me feel like my ears are going to start bleeding. It's BAD. I'm not sure what it is. It could be a fan or anything. My cat is even startled by it.

Whew, it's gone for now. I can keep my sanity intact.

Lara, I received the shirts in the mail today and all three fit great! Thank you muchly!

When I walked in the door this afternoon after class I got hit with litterbox odor like it was a brick wall, so I galavanted to Wal-Mart and picked up every deodorizing/fragrance/carpet powder/febreeze-ish thing I could get my hands on. When my apartment smells like a cat's ass, I do not feel comfortable inviting people over. End of story. I also cleaned all the disgusting, rotten food out of the fridge. This place feels so much cleaner all of a sudden, and I didn't do a damn thing to the rest of the place. Just the smell alone is enough to make it feel clean.

Kayla, I got your pictures!!! That kitty is so damn cute, and I know what you mean now about Galen tearing his truck apart. Damn.

I may have to send ya some pics when I get this next roll developed.

The big Iowa vs. Iowa State game is tomorrow. Wish the home team luck, and pray no one dies from their drunken stupidity!

New icon. Pheebs was hunting for a mouse or something in the tulips one day when I let her out, and she was just too damn cute not to get a picture. :)

I have homework to do tonight, but I'm feeling very lazy-ass.
miraje: (me!)
I finally got the test pill into Phoebe's system last night. I tried to cut a pill in half to see how half a piece would affect her, but when I cut it, one half of it broke into about six pieces. I tried getting those six pieces down her throat, but they just stuck to her tongue. She promptly spit them out when she tasted them. So...I gave her the other piece. I thought I'd be clever and hide the half pill in a slice of Kraft cheese, but the stinker ate the cheese and spit out the pill. Finally, I just got frustrated. I turned her on her back in my arms like a baby and used my other hand to pry her mouth open. The pill went straight down without any trouble. About half hour later, her eyes got all Chinese looking and she started stumbling in her step. She didn't go to sleep for several hours, so I'm wondering if it's going to keep her from shreiking at the top of her lungs when she gets into the car. Oh lordy, I hope so. I can't drive with her wailing like that. Hell, I barely make it across town with her, let alone 500 miles.

I went to talk to nice Mr. veterinerian man today about Phoebe, and he gave me a bottle of 10 tranquilizer pills for $3.00!!!!!! I seriously think humans are being ripped off. Anyway, he used his own poor unsuspecting cat as an example to me of how to administer the pills. I really hope he gave her a vitamin instead of the actual sedative. He also stuck a pencil halfway down her throat to push the pill down. Ouch much? I felt so bad for the poor animal. Now I have to do that to my cat. She is so gonna hate me after this. Wish me luck...
