No kittens for me this time. :-(

Apparently the mother is very feral and mean, so they're going to give her to another animal worker instead of a volunteer.

Well, I decided to not mope, and to look for something new to do with some of my time. What do I love? Final Fantasy, cats, learning to cook, taking pictures, etc., etc....

Project Pet is an organization my parents did a lot of volunteer work before, and I have had pictures of some of our babies up here in the past. So I gave them an email, and they have a desperate need.

So, by the weekend, I will have a mother cat and her 7 (YIKES!) newborn babies in my house. They'll be in a room by themselves, with one of the cages my parents are going to bring over. I'll be able to work on my photography while I'm taking care of them.

So, yes, there will be spammage of pictures and stuff. And who knows, they might end up on CuteOverload or the Daily Kitten. ;-)

Bored now...

Need mental stimulation, and work just ain't cutting it.

Pretty bad when I'm craving two things I either can't have or never really enjoyed, simply because I'm desperate for a change.

Here's something that fits...

Darling, give me your absence tonight
Take the shade from the canvas and leave me the white
Let me sink in the silence that echoes inside
And don't bother leaving the light on
'Cause I suddenly feel like a different person
From the roots of my soul come a gentle coercion
And I ran my hand o'er a strange inversion
A vacancy that just did not belong
The child is gone
"The Child is Gone" - Fiona Apple

*much wanting and lusting over*

And I LOVE the dirty look the Cloud figure is giving him... all, "Damnit, why doesn't she love me and want me?"

Just found Myxer Tones.com, and I could get myself in trouble with text message fees. :-p It lets you make free ringtones from MP3s you have. So, what did I do first?

"Advent: One Winged Angel", of course. ;-)

And it started it at the perfect place, where the chorus comes in. :-p

Skulking on the hotel lobby, carrying a bladed baseball bat, cometh JLSigman! And she gives a cruel scream:

"Vengeance and goo flow from my veins! I tear into the enemy until Satan himself emerges from the pit to thank me!"

WARNING: Much nonsense, hilarity, and general manic behavior are about to be displayed.

HYDE and TM are HERE!! *smooches both*

So my new boss, who is technically my old old boss and is about to be my new boss (and no, I won't get fooled again), calls me into his office to hand out the pay raise and bonus info. He hands me a letter, which basically states, "Congrats, you're pay is going up [eh]%, so you're now making [a few hundred more a year than before]. You will also find your bonus, which will be [HOLY SHIT OMGZ] before taxes."

So I will take HOLYSHITOMGZ after taxes and pay off the computer I bought in September, then go get my eyes checked for the first time in a couple of years (bad me, I know), get some new supportive undergarments, sock a good bit into savings, and then buy some books.

Boss unit also informed me that my title would be changing from Help Desk Administrator, which I already knew, but not to PC Support Technician. "That is so 90's." (YES, he really said that~!) Instead, they're working it out with HR to call me a Technical Support Analyst. Sounds good, anyways. ;-)

Then I get home and HYDE AND TM ARE WAITING FOR ME! *smooches them again* There is also probably the most hilarious mailing I have ever gotten, which had on the front, "God told me to give you this loan" and a couple of paragraphs about a prophecy and a holy handkerchief inside for answering prayers if I give them money. I wish I was making this up. ;-)

So, I am good. I don't know what all to do with this good, because it doesn't happen often, but I will try to be good with my good.

Right now, I'm at the "I want to be doing anything but this, anywhere but here" stage.

Unfortunately, I cannot take much of any pay cut right now, considering my outstanding medical bills and stupid credit card debt.

*whaps self for getting self into this position*

As free human beings we can use our unique intelligence to try to understand ourselves and our world. But if we are prevented from using our creative potential, we are deprived of one of the basic characteristics of a human being.

-His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Maybe that's why I'm all about the rage right now... work is most definitely preventing this.

I had no idea Amazon.com took checks! I could be in trouble... ;-) Today I bought 3 CDs:

Faith by Hyde
Verticle Infinity by T.M.Revolution
and Momentary Lapse of Reason by Pink Floyd, to replace my disk that got broken years ago.

Friday, March 02, 2007

Got my federal refund, which I promptly sent most of to my credit card company, so they'll quit calling me at 8:30am on Sundays. :-p

State will hopefully be here by Tuesday.

Any pay raise or bonus should be in the next couple of weeks.

I pay off the car in May.

*phew* I may actually come out of this alive. :-p
