Went to Drugs.com to see more about Coumadin, since my dose has been increased again because my blood's not quite thing enough. Found out this interesting bit of information... "Avoid eating cranberries, drinking cranberry juice, or taking cranberry herbal products"

You mean the juice I drink every morning. *headdesk*

Pick your favorite wrestling news site, and you'll read that Mike Awesome killed himself Saturday.

What a shame. I really, really liked him. Gone waaay too young.

I hope he has found peace.

Well, what all did I do today?

#2 - Went to Wal-Mart and picked up some Purina Cat Chow senior formula (Goldeneye is 9 1/2, the twins are 7 1/2). So far, they seem to like it, we'll see how it reacts to Sweet Thing's sensitive digestive track. :-p

#4 - Good grief, there was food scattered for yards. :-p

#7 - And I'm getting a decent amount back, close to $1000. The state will go straight into savings, the federal will get mostly thrown at my credit card.

#12 - Well, I didn't bake it, but I created it... last week I made these little cheesecake things out of a Paula Dean cookbook, and still had some leftover. So I bought a graham cracker crust (note to self, do not buy the Wal-Mart brand ever again, it crumbled to dust) and some chocolate pudding, lined the bottom with the leftover cheesecake things, and poured the pudding on top. Got rave reviews from my parents. :-)

And added #14 - Take a shower and wash my hair. That can be a chore. ;-)

Let's see... so far I've done:

#1 - Got the groceries, new mouse, new sweats, and added a new clock radio/CD player. My old one was at least 15 years old, and the volume was screwed up. This one is much better. ;-)

#3 - Kept a little of the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack, but not much, as well as some new Overclock Remix and Anime Remix stuff.

#8 - Holy incredible stories, Batman! What amazing, painful, wonderful writing.

#9 - I've been neglecting that game as of late, so I'm glad I got this done.

#10 - Gave up. Bosses with instant-kill spells annoy me, especially when said bosses are impossible to kill before they whip the spell out. I'll come back to it another time.

Added #13, the laundry. Washed, dried, and put up. Tried to do #2, but the only bags of food they had were the $17 ones, and I don't have that much money. :-p

(kicks Blogger for forcing me to upgrade to a rather crappy GUI new version and do all kinds of new sign-up and sign-in crap)


Here's what I need to do this weekend... I'm being very Virgo, making lists and all. Beside, when my horoscope says, "Organize your information, sort through your files and clean out your messy closets. But do it with style, for you now get to be as weird as you wish by indulging your need to rearrange your living space. Don't worry about involving others; this isn't about anyone else. An early spring cleaning always makes you feel better.", I should probably listen. ;-)

1) Go grocery shopping (going to Wal-Mart, need a new mouse and some new sweats for working out)
2) Buy cat food (Eukanuba senior brand)
3) Finish listening to all the music I downloaded yesterday (no offense to "Silent Hill" fans, but the music is muchly overrated IMO)
4) Vaccuum the home office (Goldeneye and Sweet Thing were chasing each other around last night and overturned one of the food bowls)
5) Vaccuum the living room
6) Vaccuum my bedroom
7) Get my tax crap together and file my taxes so I can get my credit card company off of my ass
8) Watch the rest of disk 2 of seasons 2 of "Angel"
9) Level up my Aardwolf character, Refinnej, to at least level 131.
10) Decide if I'm going to finish up Vagrant Story, or if I'm going to give up for now.
11) Decide if I can put up with the horrifyingly bad music in Phantasy Star II or if I should just try another one of the RPGs in that Sega collection.
12) Bake something

I think that was everything I needed to do...

Nothing earth-shattering to this post. Just wanted to make a quick, random comment that music fucking rules.

Carry on.

Quick rant because I'm hormonal and pissed off...

HEY NETFLIX!! How FUCKING HARD is it to actually look at the fucking DVDs before you put them in the white sleeves and send them out?? HELLO? I wanted season 2 disk 2, the white sleeve said season 2 disk 2, the DVD inside CLEARLY SAID DISK 1.

I swear, I'm going to try Blockbuster for free very soon if this shit doesn't get any better...
(People of the not-female persuasion may want to turn away...)

Another reason why I loved being on hormones and not menstruating for 5+ years - PMS sucks ass. My brain is so hormone soaked I'm easily distracting by stupid shit, or even nothing at all. I've made a couple of really stupid mistakes at work that I normally wouldn't. I hate it.

Bush does "Sunday, Bloody Sunday"

I don't know how accurate it is, since I didn't watch the State of the Union, but this is awesome.
I get some newsletters from Beliefnet, and one of them had a "Which archangel are you?" No codes to paste, so I just C&P'd the text.

You are Raphael, Archangel of the East. Though not recognized by the Protestant Church, you are officially recognized as one of three archangels by the Catholic Church. In two books of apocrypha, you have prominent roles. In the Book of Tobit you heal a blind beggar and you serve as a guide for the prophet Tobias. In the Book of Enoch (10:4-8), you cast one of Satan's fallen angels, Azazel, into darkness. Gentle, compassionate, and skillful you are passionate about curing people's sicknesses and providing them with healthier lives. Those who seek emotional and physical healing look to you as their patron. You share an archangel feast day with Michael and Gabriel on September 29.

And I don't have any goddamned batteries for my camera that work... ARG!

EDIT: OK, I tore the kitchen junk drawer apart and found a couple. Now I need to find the camera cable... found it!

EDIT2: Pics!
From the front porch, looking right towards the azalea bush.
From the front porch, looking straight ahead.
From the front porch, looking left over two of my neighbors' yards.
From the back porch, left to the mutantly huge azalea bush.
From the back porch, straight ahead between the pines to the swing set. You can see it's already coloring the ground and not melting.
From the back porch, slightly left. I was sorta trying to catch a bird in flight, and ended up with a really great shot of just how fat the snowflakes are.

And no, I'm not going to work. They haven't called it all the way off yet, but it's already iced my porches over, and I'm not taking any chances with idiot drivers who don't know how to handle this stuff.

EDIT3: After about 45 minutes or so of steady snow, it's now switched back over to ice pellets. Few more pics, taken 9:15am (others were taken about 8:15am).
Front porch, same angle as the second picture above.
Back porch, another shot of the mutant azalea bush, you can see the snow all around it
Snow sticking to my mutant azalea.
