One of those rambley stream-of-thought entries

I'm a sleepyhead today. I've been going to sleep after midnight, and waking up at 5:30 from this colon cleanse thing. The 5:30 waking is a new thing... I'm going to try going to be earlier tonight and see if that helps.


Maxman is at the vet's getting his teeth cleaned today. He was so good this morning, even though he wasn't allowed to have any food past midnight. He didn't even fight when I put him in the carrier. I swear, that cat's the reincarnation of Budda.

A teeth cleaning is going to set us back some $400. Isn't that crazy?! I think that's what it cost to have Gracie's removed! He's getting up there in years, though, so they wanted to do a full blood workup and have his heart monitored during the procedure (they have to put him under). I keep forgetting that our new vet is a full-service vetinary hospital. I'd rather spend the money and have him get the best of care. I love my Maxman.

Poor Gracie. She wasn't allowed to have any food past midnight either, and made it very clear to us that something was WRONG. She went flying once she saw the cat carrier, and then reappeared to devour her breakfast. She seems concerned that Max is gone, meowing at me and rubbing against his box (Max usually sleeps in a box lid next to my desk). She's currently squished between my lower back and the back of my chair.

You may have already seen this, but just in case you didn't...

Mentos + Diet Coke + Creativity = teehee

Holy smokes-- fellow Gainesvillian (sic)garygen recognized the restaurant I was eating at based solely on the sunset photo I posted here:

Give that man a Klondike bar!

Yesterday's Wake Up Song* was a bizarre melange of The Ditty Bops' "Walk or Ride" and Weird Al's "Angry White Boy Polka"

In case you don't know what either of these songs are, you can hear them here:


Oh, dear! Walk or Ride was on the Ditty Bops myspace, but they just swapped it out! Good thing they offer all their songs on their website:

This morning it was the Ditty Bops' There's a Girl (but much slower).

My brain's weird sometimes.

I actually updated the look of my myspace... not sure why. I rarely use it.

Meanwhile, my orkut has apparently been taken over by Brazilians.

Oh, my KOL friends might appreciate this one... my friend amelia (who I've known for ages, long before KOL) recently had her Kingdom of Loathing themed wedding reception. Some photos are here:


OK, back to work I go. Hope you're having a beautiful day :)

~Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough~

ADDENDUM: elysiangirl just posted this and... wow.
Amazing even without knowing the performers are deaf.

* The song that's playing in my head when I awaken.
** Why can't I wake up with this song in my head?

The cat came back

Maxman is back home!

His arms are shaved, his eyes are dilated, he's floating away on painkillers and he keeps insisting on going outside to chew grass.

In short, he looks like some sort of heroin addict. Who eats grass.

They had to do extra x-rays and extract two difficult molars.

The entire procedure, plus medicines, extra flea stuff and an id chip: $766.

For the love of G-d, the cat gets better health care than I do.

Buddhacat, can't you give me the winning lottery numbers just once?
