I am awake! For like the first time all week. Guys, it has been a crazy week. Going in to work early and staying late, every day? Not so much fun. But the paycheck will be magnificent
. Working overtime sucks, but that paycheck sure is wonderful.
It's funny, I have to keep reminding myself that I'm not working tomorrow. My mind is convinced that work is all there is. But no! Tomorrow I am sleeping the heck in.
So if you look up the word pathetic in the dictionary, you will see a picture of Hawking. That kitten's life is so tragic! Last night I was cruel, so cruel
to her, by locking her out of my bedroom while I was trying to sleep without a kitten playing with my toes. I am so mean. She cried due to the extreeeeeeme tragicness of it all. And then, of course, I caved and let her back in. Because I am a sucker.
Last night I started writing on a Thing. It's actually an idea from News From Poughkeepsie
, one that really struck my fancy
. I'm having fun with it so far, and I have an idea of where I'm going, I just have no idea why an entire apartment building would seclude itself from the world other than being a cult.
Hawking has decided to teeth on George, my stuffed dog that wears headphones that are secretly speakers. It is intensely amusing to see this little kitten hauling around a stuffed dog five times her size. But he's a tough dog, so long as she doesn't discover the pocket with the headphone jack.
I have an idea. I really want to clean out my closet. I want to toss all the junk that is in there and condense all the stuff I actually want to keep into just a few boxes or something. Then I want to get some cheap sheets or something and move my cats' litter boxes into that closet. Since I never use it, it would still be out of the way, but it'd be bigger. And then I could put some of my wire shelves into the coat closet that currently houses the litter boxes and finally have a pantry. This "using my counter as a pantry" thing is getting old. Also, being unable to use my Costco card to stock up for cheaps just because I don't have room is frustrating. I might get started on it tomorrow, but I kind of doubt it. Tomorrow needs to be laundry day first, then other stuff. But it is a plan. The only problem is the few clothing items I do keep in my closet. I figure the closet is big enough that I could possibly keep the clothes in the opposite corner with no ill effects, or I could use more of the wire shelving to rig something in my room proper. I'll figure something out, though. I want a pantry!
Oh! I am always amused my wank in non-wanky communities. The best was when there was DRAMA in weathernerds
, but the girl was deleting comments so I didn't get the full effect. In cooking
, though, DRAMA gets fun, because there are so many members. 99% of the time is it a totally drama-free community, but every once in a while we get someone come in with something really stupid, like a request to put all "unhealthy" recipes behind a cut to promote healthy living
, and much fun is had. I love that community so much.
Remember that idea I had almost a month ago to make a mix cd of really EPIC songs
? Well, it's coming together nicely. Right now I'm putting it in a good order and trying to decide how many Muse songs I really want on there. I don't want it to be all OMG MUSE but then again I can't decide between a couple of songs to pick one to keep. Decisions are hard! Because Mix CDs are serious business, yo. I'm also trying to decide if I want to do the burn-and-mail thing, or if I want to do it all on Muxtape. Or I might just zip it all up and post it to my own webspace. Decisions!
I feel like I have a lot more to say. I'm feeling talky. I slept today after getting home from work. I napped from about 5 to 9:30. I needed it, but now I'm going to be up all night and it's going to throw me off. I should go lay down and play Animal Crossing or something. I think that's what I'll do.
