i’ve returned with one unhappy kitty

i just got back from taking julius to the vet. they think he may have a virul infection, so he got a shot today, he’ll get one tomorrow and they want to check him again monday. if he’s not better by then (i.e. he can breathe, doesn’t sneeze and has a voice again) they said they’ll have to try something else.

julius didn’t take to the vet’s office too well. when the nurse pulled him out to take his temperature, he gave me a look as if to say, you didn’t say we were coming HERE. he ran back into his cat carrier (usually i have to push him in it) after his temp was taken (really can’t blame him for this one) and was straining to see out the window through the holes in the side. i tried to pull him out so he could actually look out the window, but he firmly planted his four legs against the sides. he wasn’t going anywhere.

when the doctor came in, julius ran under my chair and eyed the door, trying to quickly concoct his escape plan, so the doctor calls him “the cat who wants to travel to atlanta.” oh my poor boy…thermometer, claws clipped and a shot. no wonder he’s so mad at me now.

i hate pettiness

i am PISSED OFF. last night the koror tribe voted stephenie off survivor. she only outwitted, outplayed and outlasted eight other people to be the last woman standing from the ulong tribe. she actually worked, unlike others like, hmmm, jenn. i think tom had a good point last night when he told the tribe that no one who is strong and smart and, in my opinion, is a true survivor has ever won the game. seriously. that pisses me off. then you have people like amber and jenna who win…but i digress. i apologize to anyone who was a fan of amber and jenna. i’m just whining. it’s my blog and i can whine if i want to!! 🙂

i love the 80s

spirograph
You’re a Spirograph!! You’re pretty tripped out,
even though you’ve been known to be a bit
boring at times. You manage to serve your
purpose in life while expending hardly any
effort (and are probably stoned to the gills
all the while).

What childhood toy from the 80s are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

name my site

i’m not really sure if i’m liking this new name too much, but i’m not the most creative person. so, after getting some suggestions from people, i’ve created a poll so you can vote and tell me what i should name my site! woo. sound exciting?! yeah, didn’t think so. 🙂

my brother’s trip

my brother, ryan, is accompanying this guy he works for to st. paul today for a weekend business trip.

ryan: i have to drive 15 hours tonight
me: why?
ryan: st. paul
me: i thought you were flying
ryan: haha…me too

sucks for him to have to drive all that way, but he says he’s heard st. paul’s a cool city, so he’s excited.
