yesterday was the most stressful day of my life.

or so it felt.

faetal and i spent the evening stressing out and yelling at the t.v., which eventually ended in us going and getting cheap beer and chocolate, then sitting and doing more of the same, only slightly less agitated.

i'm... virtually speachless.

and utterly, utterly disappointed in the country.

sort of melodramatic, i know, but that's how i feel.

in other news.. dyed the purple out of my hair last night for work this morning, instead of turning back to auburn, it turned MASSIVELY CLOWN ORANGE. wow, is it bright. amazing how a little thing like... oh... bleaching your hair before you color it can really make a difference *wince*.

in other other news, we have thee most codependant kitten EVAR. holy frejoles. she has to be on us AT ALL TIMES. she slept on my hip all evening. when i woke up, she spent the entire morning FREAKING OUT because i couldn't hold her and do my contacts at the same time.

nothing says lovin like a kitten jumping up on your legs... when you're wearing nothing but a tank top and underwear.

and you would think she was a siamese instead of a calico, she's SO verbal. yes, you're cute. now put a sock in it. schnookums.

I was really disappointed to see so many red states. I was hoping the large voter turnout would have favored Kerry more.

Maybe the kitten needs a playmate for times when you or your roommate are not available. Get another kitten and they will keep each other busy. Or maybe a catnip mouse. When she wants attention and you can't give it to her, dangle the catnip mouse in front of her.

i know that you of all people worked extremely hard for this election, if i got extremely exhausted by just watching the election, i can't imagine pouring my entire being into it for MONTHS.

take a rest, dear. tomorrow, we can take over the world together :)

I couldn't agree with you more about that feeling of disappointment. ><


My cat used to be all clingly, too, so I got thim this thing from Wal-mart that makes a crackling noise when you play with it and is filled with very nice catnip. Every time he wants to have my attention for 60 million hours I throw the thing off somewhere and get at least a half hour's peace. :)

ooh good idea. i work right next to petsmart, so i should go check out what they have.

granted, anything that we've gotten her so far, or made for her, she finds not entertaining AT ALL. what does she like to play with, you ask?

i large, bulky pencil sharpener that doesn't move when she bats at it.

my heavy flonase dispenser.

the table leg.

Sigh- I wish my kitties were more affectionate, sometimes Luna gets pretty affectionate but for the most part they act like they 'don't need me' *sniff*

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE calicos, Gidget used to be really chatty when she got older.

Re: kittieeeeeees
well, the codependancy wore off pretty quickly - she only comes to greet us whenever we first get home or first get up - if she happens to not be doing anything more interesting. we all stopped letting her sleep with us because she does nothing but get into EVERYTHING, which keeps us up, so...

and she greets us, but God forbid we try to hold her or pet her! eesh.

Re: kittieeeeeees
yeah same with my cats, it's funny how they both rush to greet me when I get home but then I bend down to pet them and they rush away like "EW!! I can't believe we came down here for this!"

Re: kittieeeeeees
i've never been a big fan of calicos, dunno why. maybe because for the most part, i don't like girl cats, they tend to be less affectionate and do the whole heat and birthing thing if you don't get them fixed.

Re: kittieeeeeees
hmm other friends of mine have said the same thing. The calicos I've had were way friendly (to me anyway). Gidget was so sweet, then after her I brought home this kitty briefly from the pet shelter, she was uber affectionate but would bite really hard and draw blood to show tht affection LOL So we only had her for a few days..and then we had another calico girl who was very friendly too but we had to give her back as well since she was chasing our cats away from the food bowl and Shadow was sick at the time, so it caused some health complications for him being kept away from the food dish.

I've heard that ginger color cats (like Lily) are aloof, and cats with 'points' are aloof but I really do think it's personality and also how much you are home. I think part of the reason why Gidget was so affectionate was that I had home schooling, I was home pretty much all the time.

Guy cats are more affectionate right off the bat- you don't need to spend any time 'charming' them but I find that they are often more 'fickle'. All the guy cats I had would start out liking me but then get attached to my dad and have nothing to do with me *sniff*

Re: kittieeeeeees
*gasp* the jerks! bacci is fickle, i suppose, as now that joel is gone, she likes ME ME ME, and only likes daniel to bite and play with, and i'm pretty sure she's plotting jessie's death. she hisses him all the time.

whenever jess and dan play wrestle (read: all the time), it freaks her the hell out and she goes all feral: hisses and SERIOUSLY attacks us, and howls in evil voices.
