i find it strangely odd (strangely odd... would that be an oxymoron? or a double negative? *snark*) that on saturday and even part of sunday, the vancouver and portland areas were buried under about an inch of solid ice. no snow at all, only ICE. my favoritest thing EVER that they showed on the television was a guy in a giant red parka walking down the street, losing his balance and grabbing desperately onto a pole to regain it.... only to slide in circles around the pole like a dancer, before falling on his bum. i wish i could make an icon out of it, it was so durned fantastic.

so anyway, sat/sun, buried under ice. today? 67 degrees. yes, that's right, dear readers, SIXTY-SEVEN DEGREES. the end of the world is at hand, when it's almost shorts weather in JANUARY in the pacific northwest. not that i wear shorts. i never wear shorts. it's a self conscious thing, really.

i have been feeling.. weird.. all day. and then i remember i'm sick. how could i forget? i certainly remember every time i talk. poor andrea is home sick, too, with tonsils the size of nebraska in fall. and that's a big thing.

weve noticed that Bacci tends to go through certain... moods.. at about the same time during the day, including:

*** wackadoo time, where she either needs to be played fetch with on the stairs constantly, or she will run as fast as her little white booted feet will carry her, from the upstairs bathroom, down the stairs, through the livingroom, hallway and dining room, to stare for a few moments out the back door, just to turn around and run back the way she came. she does this with her ears pinned completely back, as if Something Evil is behind her, or that she really needs to HURRYHURRYHURRY, because she's terrified of being late... some.. where... but wherever Somewhere is, it's obviously not in the same room that she's currently occupying, whichever room that is.
*** restless wandering time, where she roams the house endlessly, peering in things, batting random things around for only a couple of moments as if to test out whether or not it's what she really wants to do, before sighing and continuing on.
*** contemplative time, where she either has to sit in one of the windows (which we don't encourage since we're *cough* not really supposed to have a cat...), or in the blinds on the back door (sliding glass) and just lays there adn watches the world go by... or mayhaps daydreams as to what that bird would really taste like..
*** sneaky time, where she gets into just about EVERYTHING she's not supposed to, but doing it in such a way that she's being almost TOO quiet. i can't count the times that we've been sitting here and suddenly look at each other and say "where's the cat?" only to discover that she's upstairs, torturing and killing the hell out of yet another roll of toilet paper. sometimes, after such a kill, she'll bring it downstairs and leave it between our computer chairs, much like some cats leave birds or mice on the front porch. how in the WORLD she gets an entire gigantic roll of toilet paper downstairs without unravelling it is beyond me. we also find other random things, such as the plug to the upstairs bathtub, between our chairs. andrea also reminds me of one such time where we went upstairs to find her, to discover Bacci in a bathroom that was now COMPLETELY coated in fine pink glitter, from a glitter container she had knocked the life out of.
*** codependant time, where she needs TO BE NEAR US AND AROUND US AT ALL TIMES NO MATTER WHAT, preferably ON us. near our face. which makes typing difficult.

anyhoo, i'm back off to play more Chrono Cross. cuz i'm just that cool.

Redundant. :)

Ice is cool. So's Civ3. :)

i was going to say that i'm craving me some ice now that it's a trillion degrees outside.

meh. it broke 80 for the first time in.. sheesh. 3 or 4 weeks? yeah. nothing to complain about. especially since it's going to be in the 70's again today, and even cooler tomorrow.

yeah. methinks i can handle that.

OMG i want to see that man slididng around the pole :)
Jul. 1st, 2005 02:18 pm (UTC)
me, too. i wish that the news channel would have had some sort of archive or something.

i also wish that someone would have made me an icon out of it, since i do not possess the technological know how.

but it was funny. let me assure you.

Maybe Bacci knows something you don't. Maybe it's EVIL toilet paper, and she's already saved your lives several times.

Also, I could totally read cat stories all day.
Jul. 1st, 2005 03:00 am (UTC)
hee hee, i could, too.

and i laugh my ass off every time i read this reply. it brings SUCH the visual!

some favourite bacci moments:
*when she had a full out brawl with a roll of paper towels, it looked like a roll of snowflakes at the end.
*wondering how she artfully wound black yarn around several objects including but not limited to: the mandolin, the banister, the lamp, some books, some boxes, and the table.
*bacci jumping when we first got her, so very ungraceful, would fall over backwards at almost any given time.

hmmm I wonder where she is right now....
*looks around with bemused fearful looks*

awww. i DON'T miss her psyching us out by lunging at us but not lunging at us, if that makes sense. it was almost as if she got glee from scaring the CRAP out of us.

whenever she's awful anymore, i just remember how horrid she USED to be.

My friend lifeofashadow has a cat... and when she gets in one of her *moods*, her ears will lie completely flat against her head, her pupils will dilate and shake a bit, and then she'll run all over the house. She even ran up and over my friend one time 'cause he happened to be in the way of her feet...

Do you Neopets? 'cause I like your little Ixi. :)

i DO neopets, though i almost never go there anymore (user aubkabob- surprise!). i even have a dying guild.

i haven't gone there in awhile, methinks i'm a bit overdue.

My baby boy Sutro goes through those same moods...and no sock is safe during sneaky time. He loves socks. I gave him a catnip mouse, and he tore it in half and ate the catnip. *sigh*

But he's cute.

And he drools during codependant time.
Jan. 19th, 2005 05:56 pm (UTC)
hee hee, andrea's cat at her mom's, Merlin (who i always accidentally call Gremlin for some reason...), drools like a faucet (because faucets, as we all know, have drooling problems *smacks forehead*)
