loving the three-day weekends

i thought it was sunday all day yesterday. i’m not used to having three day weekends, but how nice they are when they pop up. saturday joe and i napped a lot of the day before getting ready to have dinner and a movie at my place with my friend julisa and her boyfriend. on sunday we had lunch at my grandparents’ to celebrate my grandma’s birthday, my parents’ anniversary and my brother’s girlfriend’s birthday. then we drove back to cartersville, hung out with joe’s friend jon and then went to bed.

yesterday was not the ideal memorial day. i know many people plan outdoor activities, and we were no exception. we were going to spend the afternoon at the park with a picnic and our frisbee and books, but it drizzled all day long. instead, we went out to lunch, watched movies, played a card game and napped until joe left to go to a concert in atlanta with his friend, brandon. i stayed at joe’s with the diz, did some laundry he needed for today and watched romy and michelle’s high school reunion and romy and michelle in the beginning (yes, i’m a dork).

i also learned your not supposed to put ties in the washer (please hold your laughter back to a minimum). i didn’t know this. joe had a tie in the laundry basket, so i figured it needed to be washed and in it went. well. i think i may have ruined it. he said he’s going to take it to the dry cleaners and see if they can fix it, but i feel terrible. it’s probably something i should have known, but at least i’ll never do it again now!



fun sites!

obsessive compulsive cat

i could hear the scratching sound of aj out in the hall trying to catch an imaginary bug (actually a mark on the wall). i started to receive a fax, and there was a great crashing noise as aj bounded in, jumped up on the desk and took his spot next to the fax. i know he was thinking, “did i miss it? did i miss it?” for some reason aj is glued to things that move and make noise: the fax, the printer and the toilet to name a few.

a cuter nose?

joe’s coworkers told him that his cat has a cuter nose than i do. i don’t know if i should be offended by that…

wishing i was computer savvy

my computer is having problems. it’s been running reaaaaaaaally slow lately and i’m being bombarded by internet explorer popups (even though i don’t use internet explorer), so i called tech support at my local internet provider. they were absolutely no help. then a friend linked into my computer via vnc (such a great program!) cleaned up a bunch of things and told me a third spyware program to download. my computer’s running faster, but when i got home this morning i had about 30 popups. you would think that three spyware programs would take care of them.
that’s not all…for some reason, my operating system won’t boot up unless the cd is in the drive. that’s obviously not normal. i discussed it with joe’s sister’s fiance this morning and we came to the conclusion that it will have to be reformatted. now i must burn everything i want to save to cds. that is going to be a pain. it’ll probably be worth it in the long run, but for now i’m getting a headache just thinking about it.

advice needed

julius claws at the carpet. now aj is scratching at the walls. he’s torn off some of the paint on my door. does anyone know how i can get my poor, clueless kitties to STOP THE INCESSENT SCRATCHING?? as i write this i’m listening to aj jump and run his claws down the wall. i’m about to go completely insane.
