Good Meowning and Happy Easter to you too, Tigerose (and everyone else who saunters in today)!

I was looking for pics and did a gis for "easter cat" - roughly a third of what popped up were warnings about lilies being toxic to cats. I know I knew this, but I had fur-gotten. I bet a lot of people are like me and simply have a reserve of derp equal to or greater to the smarts we keep carefully hidden away and that's why we need to be reminded every year. Not that I've ever brought lilies into my home, but I know they are significant for this holiday for some people and that makes me glad for the reminder about the toxicity.

I got an hour nap and still am hungry because I did not eat. lol! Waiting for coffee, THEN will eat sumfing. Thinking about making a couple taquitos, because I really like taquitos. Or maybe I can hit the store and get some salsa, which I do not feel like making right now, and make some chilaquiles. Those are YUM all the time.

Well I actually followed Dr's orders and turned of my computer for most of the weekend. I saw a lot of well wishes before I did - Thanks. I just wanted to post some holiday pics and then the computer goes off again.

Happy Easter!
crankyandi.smugmug.com

Been stressing out (work)...woke up at 3 am yesterday and didn't fall back to sleep.  Yeah...I was exhausted.

Did grocery shopping at 8 am.  Saw a former coworker in the store but wasn't sure it was her so I didn't say hi.  I was at the checkout lane when I saw that the roast I was buying was open so I had to go back to get a different roast.  I walked up to the meat counter and she was there.  Right where I needed to be.  So I said 'Excuse me'.  She said 'oh sorry'.  It was her.   I did say hi, we hugged and talked for 30 minutes.  We talked about our jobs (we were both let go by the same place a few years ago).  I said I am not doing what I should be doing, development but I'd love to do requirements or QA testing.  And this is where it gets awesome....she said that where she is, they are coming into the 21st century and she is pushing for QA testing.  She then said 'I have goosebumps'.

Yes, life is mysterious.  I smiled the rest of the day and I am still smiling.

Will be pursuing this opportunity.  A door opened.....I want to see what is on the other side.

I fell asleep before 8:30 last night (exhausted) and slept quite well.  I woke up a little after 5 and cuddled the furkids till after 6.

And I am still smling!

*yawn* Morning Caturday folks (whomever is up at this wretched hour).  Early shifts are no fun, but being able to use the bike to get to and from work means I get to spend just a little bit more time at home (like 45 minutes total) instead of walking to trains, or walking to buses, or walking to work.

I think B the 8 legged is sorting herself out, as she usually does.  She still keeps a watchful eye on her water dish, but she's also decided to spruce up her foam log house with a new web coating, and a new web mat for when she's laying about.  I'm hoping that keeping her water dish filled more often will reinforce the idea of "This is for wets, not webs", but we shall see.

Happy Easter to all, and to all, good noms.
 
2014-04-20 09:26:35 AM

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Hai! *frantic waving* I had my medicines adjusted and one changed on Purrsday and I am having the interesting dreams. I have done the sleepwalking before, too. My ex used a belt from one of my robes to tether one of my ankles to his so it would wake him up if I started wandering off in my sleep. The obstacle course arrangement did not work on me, because I navigated through it perfectly. Then I'd start baking or cooking dinner - in my sleep. We were afraid I'd burn the house down, not leave it. I don't know why I started sleepwalking in the first place, but I also seem to have stopped. I haven't done that in years even with the medications.


*pawavies back!*

I'm not getting anything adjusted..one med is an old friend from long ago..the other is a new-kid-on-the-block, fer me..  Adjustments may follow, as the treatment begins  Today ..!  Imagine that..!  You and the rest o'the Caturday clowder will get to see me rise and fall in as near real-time as I can manage..  ;)

Honestly, I'm really hoping fer the dreams..  *grin*   Almost two years back, I had major oral surgery and a 7-day course of hydrocodone (oxycodone..?  I never remember..the really,  really addictive one..which is why only 7 days worth, to be taken only 'as needed'..)..  Well, I took that first one..  15-min fade out to black..and then..?  The most *WONDERFUL* dreams..  :D  The remaining six became as gold, to me..to be saved for only my very worst days..of anything..let the lesser pain pills handle the surgery..  Took me 4+ months to use those six pills..  Never felt a need or craving for them..but there have been many days since that I so very miss them..  :P

The sleepwalking thing, as said, is something I've never done..  First (and only) wife did, a lot..so I have strong familiarity with it and my background is strong in life-sciences and medical application..so..  Dunno why it even came to mind.  Finally made the call, after ruling out alcohol as any significant issue, to begin both..and began thinking of possible responses..  "Oversleeping"..well, duh..  "Odd dreams"..yes please..!!!  *BAM*  "Sleepwalking"..wait..what..?  Why..?

We shall all soon see..  ;)

Hope the modified meds settle out and do you far better than the formulation being re-modded was, fer you..  Sounds like things are off to a good, if confuzzling, start..  *grin*

Now..  I am about to seriously mangle names, methinks..  I have finished the thread to the point of the post from  RWDA that I am replying to..and am now going to attempt to say a couple things..  Keep in mind, I no longer have any idea how long I've been awake..pushing fer two more hours (minimum) so's I can eat and take meds at a time I wish to be the starting point of my dosage sched..have *no* idea of my initial reaction to those meds..and am doing about fifty other things at the same time..  Scrolling up, down, back, forth..ain't gunna happen..don't even know how I'm still comprehending the written word..will be working purely from lousy memory..  :D

- First..  Happiest Wishes to all celebrating Birthdays and other posted HAPPY events, this Caturday..!  I wish I could do so by name..
- Cabbage - successfully turning a Caturday thread into an EO-Elephant thread so seamlessly..  I am impressed..  One of your captions mentioned "otter"..(my 'other' spirit animal, when Mistress Bast isn't thinking I'm thinking she's thinking I'm looking..  ;P  )..what can you do with that one..  *chuckle*  And, if I've not already, tanks fer all the captions of my Orange..  He love's 'em..but refuses to admit it..
- Regarding  Mallow..so very sorry for the loss..  You don't need me to tell you what everyone else is saying..but, no..it was no fault of yours..  I have been almost  exactly right there..you told your short story and my mind flashed back and wrote a trilogy..  If you want to talk, EIP..  What I can say won't be exactly happy..which is why I's not putting here..but it will be honest and *could* be some measure of closure..  Or, just talk about good times..your cats and mine..there's many routes to healing..  :)
sherpa..!  There you are..!  "Downtime" is  important..  =)  Hang in there, baby! (okay..  I'm old..  You all get that..right..?  Right..?!)  Things will turn your way and we're here for you..  What little help I can offer is yours for the asking as you fight to get everything back into order..  It is going to be alright..
laluja , thank you fer the "PO Box Mishap of 2014"..I'm certain it will be joyfully yowled about fer years to come..  ;)  And thank you, as well, fer your constant and unwavering herding of us all, like so many cats..  (I think there's a metaphor in there, somewhere's..)  [umm..on a purely selfish note..I somehow completely missed yer shortwave connection..  I'm familiar that many here..Dittybopper first comes to mind..are in that community..but you seem rather uniquely poised to offer a proper starting point..?  Have long been interested..used to have a *very* old Realistic rig..mic and everything..ran a 250' antenna cable across our yard, as a teen (I'm a *bit* older now), and listened..but never went further..  Would like to..  Danke, in advance..]

Okay..those the main hits..  Awesome catptioning, this week..!  I'll stop talking, fer now..will respond, in the next couple, if responded to..and work on wrapping my day up and getting back here t'morrow..  Okay, okay..  I know..  Will not be so verbose..  Pinky-swear..!

Oh crud..how this reminded me, well..whatever..  Snake feeding nite (well overdue)..  Moving to top-priority, now (Kate would not be happy, did I not..)..  I often thought about arachnids..but, many many years ago, had a *really* good two-year run with giant millipedes that ended in sudden, unexplained colony failure..  I gave up on the exo-skelled critters, about then..  :/

Blessed B (pun fully intended) on this Easter Holiday..

Oh..about to be a *bit* verbose, again..just 'membered something I meant to say well afore that last long post..  This one's all "Caturday" it is..  :)

Went outside about 6:45am to grab some wood fer the stove..just a little afore actual sunrise..but more than bright out enuff to see things just fine..  Now, we live on the side of a hill in a verra rural community..occasionally have dairy cows in our backyard..  :P  So, I go to get the wood and look downhill..there, about 200' away, is Orange..sitting in the middle of the road..facing the driveway of our closest (only) neighbor in that direction..and, in the middle of the drive..about 75' back from the road, is Fernando..a well-fed neighborhood stray who does not belong to the neighbor..but, essentially, lives there..

Fernando..who's in the 12lb range..has his fur up, reared back and hissing..  Orange..8lbs soaking wet..is sitting there, head tilted, just looking at him..

I step off the porch onto the steps to get the wood..Orange turns his head to look at me..  I look at him..a good 4-5 seconds pass..

Then he gets up and *runs*..I mean "like a cheetah" runs to me..  By this time I've the wood I want (wheelbarrow at bottom of steps) and am stepping back onto the porch..he slows to a trot and follows me in the house..taking a sharp right turn to run up to my room (to avoid our youngest dog..no threat..dog just thinks he and Orange are the same size and Orange wasn't in the mood to be refreshing any lessons, t'day..  ;)  )..and waits fer me there..

Sounds simple-cute, yah..  But, is the first time he's ever done that..  Had him since a kitten..he's about 3 1/2..and no other human in the house likes him..tho' he and the dogs (when the younger isn't being a rambunctious pain) love each other like kind'a-odd brothers..they grew up t'gether..puppy's a year younger..

Orange will trot or run across the room fer food..dash behind me when his 'brother' wants to play and he doesn't..  But he's *never* crossed 200' of landscape at a dead run just at the sight of me..to follow me in and come and curl up on my bed while I did my thing..no other reason..

I haz a warm fuzzy..

(need to get some action shots of him..)

I am hasing such a good day so far, you guise! Today was the reveal/selection window for the May Julep Maven releases (nail polish - as if you could not have guessed) and though I am broke, I am getting all the colors I want. I have earned enough Jules (their reward currency) over the past two years I got it all on the way FREE. Not a single cent was paid by me, not even taxes or shipping. How awesome is that?

My mom made the appropriate noises of approval though I know she honestly does not give a shiat about my nail polish and cosmetic habit. At least it's not heroin, right? RIGHT!
