LIST:
- Yesterday I shot video of myself, learned how to edit video, then signed up for myspace in order to submit said video to a contest to meet Muse. THE THINGS I DO FOR THIS BAND.

- I like the new Doctor. It will take me some time to get used to him, I think, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to love him. I already love Amy. Girl's got her sassypants on.

- Despite how much I hate the allergy part of it, Spring is really a pretty season. I always forget how much I like the sight of new green grass blowing in the breeze before they cut it. In traffic on the highway today, I got to watch the tall grass on the sides of the highway and it was nice. Bright green grass and bright green trees and pretty blue skies. So pretty. If only I could live in a bubble for the season, it'd be great.

- Have I mentioned that I've got a third cat here? I'm keeping [livejournal.com profile] feigned_living's cat Janet while she looks for an apartment. Janet is both sweet & adorable AND rotten & evil. One minute she'll be purring on my lap, the next she'll be tearing after Hawking wanting to "play". The cat drama in the apartment is epic. Hawking and Janet are almost friends, though- today they were chasing each other around without any growling! For about 10 minutes! I was shocked. Tesla is still standoffish, though.

- Actually, Tesla is amazing. When Janet started harassing Hawking more than Hawking liked, Tesla totally slapped Janet on the top of the head to get her to leave Hawking alone. I kiiiiiind of wanted to give her a high five, except she's a cat. She's been really protective of Hawking, and it's really sweet. Tesla is such a momma cat, even without her claws. But I made the appropriate "hey I do not like fighting" noises, because that's the thing to do.

- There was a notice on my car this morning from the Arlington Police Department. Apparently they came around and did a sort of inspection of cars, to check for things that would make a car a target for burglary, and then left "report cards". My car passed. I thought it was pretty cool that they would do something like that, just as a public service. I really do like the Arlington PD. Every time I've had to deal with them (due to Ben Garcia or Beatrice Sandovall's warrants) they've been super nice. I know cops can have a bad rap in some cities, but Arlington police have always been awesome in my experience.

- I used to talk to these guys online all the time, back in 2001-2004 or so, and now they are touring Europe. I am so happy for them. That is so cool. Also, it seems they've stuck with this band name for more than three seconds, which is a new record I think!

- Actually, I'm really proud of them, honestly. They have won an NME award and apparently Morrissey went to see their show. That is super awesome.

- I am babysitting 4 of the next 6 nights.

- I really want to scrape the stickers off the back window of my car, and get new ones.

- I've had the urge to do something ridiculous for a while now. I shall use some of my babysitting funds to do something ridiculous. I'm not sure what it will be yet, but it will be ridiculous, and also epic.

- Janet is currently chasing her tail. Enthusiastically.

- I'm sleepy, so I'm going to bed.

Have I mentioned lately that Tesla is the prettiest, most adorable cat in the world?

Tesla

Because she is.

Also: My cat matches my furniture. Her eyes match the papasan, her fur matches the throw blanket thingy...

So I have some pictures I've been meaning to post. I got my cats a new gold litter box, and they like it. Also there are a few random pictures of them being cat-ish. Then there are pictures of the my new silverware, and also of muffins I made today, because ohhhhhhhh they are good.

PS: My mood icon is 112% perfect for this post. Because I am full of muffins, and so is Pat. There are even muffins in the picture! I love my Wonderfalls mood theme.

TESLA NEEDS ONE OF THESE.

Especially since her fur is practically black along her back right now, from the cold*. I want her to have creamy pretty light fur again! I'm thinking she might actually handle it pretty well. She is a very tolerant cat. She would hate it at first, but get used to it very quickly, I think.

*She is mostly siamese, and the fur on a siamese cat changes color with temperature- cold makes it darker, warmth makes it lighter. That's why most siamese cats have black feet and ears and such. Only I keep it cool/cold in my apartment so Tesla has more dark than light fur.

My cats are so spoiled.

[livejournal.com profile] catmean gave me a kitty water fountain a while back, sometime last year. I've been using it since then, and both cats love it. Hawking has never had to drink from anything else since I brought her home, except when she drinks from a faucet.

Today when I went to refill it, I noticed the inside was looking kind of icky, so I hauled the whole thing into the bathroom and gave it a good rinse. I'm letting it dry out now, so I can give it a good cleaning later. In the meantime, I've filled a bowl with water and set it down where the fountain usually sits.

Oh my goodness, you'd think I was trying to poison them.

They are both deeply suspicious of it. Hawking keeps sniffing at it, then giving me these looks like she's saying "What the heck? What is this crap?". Tesla just won't go near it.

Then I slipped two small ice cubes in it. Ohhhhh man, that did not go over well. I didn't see it happen, but I think Hawking tried to attack them. All I know is that the ice cubes are not in the bowl anymore and there is a lot of water splashed around the bowl on the floor.

My cats, they are so special.

Awwwww
Hawking was pretty much the most pathetic thing ever when I brought her home.


*snerk*
Look at her, trying to be dignified with her little half-shaved leg. Awwwwwww.

I don't think I've ever seen a cat sit with their legs splayed like that.

Makes you feel lopsided if you look at her too long, doesn't it?

The condensed version of events:
  • When I dropped her off at the vet, the lady had to literally peel Hawking off of me. Seriously. At one point, there was a claw stuck in the skin of my neck. Hawking kind of panicked.

  • The vet himself called me to say she was out of surgery and doing okay. I still can't get over that. That is super cool. Usually it's just an assistant or something that makes calls. I really like that the vet called. I love this Banfield place.

  • Yeah, I left work early to pick up rescue my kitten. What of it? She is my little baby, after all.

  • She whined the whole. way. home.

  • When we got home, she wanted to lay in her carrier box, but Tesla wanted to sit on it and kept flattening it. I fixed it with tape. That poor box.

  • Tesla is being downright mean! I think Hawking probably smells different, either like the vet's office or like the meds she's on or something. Tesla is having nothing to do with her.

  • They gave me a small bottle of kitty pain meds for her. I have never had a vet send home pain meds. I'm considering changing her name temporarily to House while she is on her kitty drugs. But not really.

  • Hawking is sleeping a lot. Poor thing. But she is doing fine! She's moving normally, if a bit slow and clumsy still. Also, her stitches are those cool "inside stitches" or whatever, so she can't chew on them. This is a huge relief. I was really worried about how I was going to keep her from chewing on stitches, given her tendency to chew on everything else.

  • The new Notwist album is really good


(And I promise that after this I'll start putting pictures under cuts again.)

Man, I've not posted a thing since Thursday. I feel like I need to post, so I will recap my weekend.

Headache, podiobook, Juno, books, cooking, Mario Kart, Rock Band, Animal Crossing, and Battlestar Galactica )

Anyways. Bedtime. Possibly after a little Mario Kart.
