This isn’t going to be an interesting post. But because of the Swine flu outbreak and regular flu cases here in my area, I am homebound. I can get out for the ride, I can’t get out of the car. So I won’t be able to speak of the hot guy I saw on the way home or some cute guy saying “Hi” to me on the way out of the store (if that ever happens.). So naturally, I am inclined to speak of Smokie, Zeus, the books I am reading, or the music I am listening to. Or maybe perhaps the weird stuff I do when I am not blogging. Ok, I really don’t do any weird stuff when I’m not online. I read, watch TV, sleep (which I seem to be doing a lot lately), or study. Speaking of studying, I need to get back to doing that. Maybe I will this evening. Otherwise I’ll never be ready for that test.

Smokie has seemed to developed a habit of sticking her tail into their water bowl. For the second time today when I pet her, her tail was wet. I know it can’t be from cleaning herself because even when she grooms, she isn’t soaking wet. Since I am witty, I kept saying “Are you leaking? My cat is leaking!” and the family laughed. It just seems weird because the tip of her tail seems to be wet and I can’t figure it out unless she IS leaking or sticking it in the water bowl. Well atleast when it comes time for her Spring bath, she’ll be used to water. Yes, I bathe my cat. It’s not as hard as it seems when you start young. Except one year on my birthday, she escaped my grasp and the bathroom. She was trailing cat shampoo and water all over the house. Just to piss her off, I relathered her.

I am still reading the Twilight series. I am currently on the 3rd book and am in love with it. I would love to fall in love with a vampire like Edward that has superhuman powers. I know it’s just fantasy. But how cool would it be to fall in love with someone that makes your heart beat fast with every thought of his/her voice or knee-wobbling kisses. We all dream of that. I am also re-reading “A Dirty Job” by Christopher Moore. I bought the book after I checked it out from the library because I loved it. I can’t say what it’s about without going to Google for a synopsis or reading the book to give you one. It’s been about a year or two since I’ve read it so I don’t remember everything. But there is one funny part that always keeps me laughing (even if it is a bit morbid)- everytime his daughter says “kitty”, anyone in the near vicinity drops dead. I know it shouldn’t be funny but if there was a killer on the loose and all you had to say was “kitty” to get him dead?

You will not believe what song I am currently listening to! Does anyone remember the first time they heard Henry Hall’s “Teddy Bear Picnic”?


Valentine’s Day is afoot! February 13, 2009

If you’ve all looked at your calendars, you’ll know that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Maybe you have something special planned for your husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, or maybe you plan on watching a romantic comedy with a bowl of ice cream. A bowl of ice cream while watching a romantic comedy- now THAT’S a Valentine’s Day!

For me, I have no one special. Well, atleast not yet. I’ve never asked anyone out before so I’m mustering up the courage to ask him out. But I did get gifts for my mom and Manders. Well, WE got something for Mom. I can’t tell you what it is since she reads my blog. I know, the anticipation! But once we have given it to her, I’ll let you know. I can’t let you know details of what I got my twin but I’ll be vague: It’s an adorable stuffed animal with a funny ass card. Was that a little too vague? LOL I know my mom got us something and a card. We also got Dad some candy and a card, since he isn’t much for stuffed animals. The kitties and puppy got toys and treats- but instead of waiting for tomorrow, they got them Wednesday.

Zeus got a puppy with a heart hanging from it’s mouth and obviously, he doesn’t like cuteness. Within 15 minutes of getting it, the nose had already been ripped off. For some reason, he likes to go for the nose on his stuffed “babies”. Weird. The kitties got 2 string toys with stuffed balls on the end. Since the strings were elastic, I kept “shooting” them at Smokie. She wasn’t amused. Princess, on the other hand, loved them. Try to take one away to play with her and she told me “no”. LOL

But I have eating my fill of chocolate this week (I love chocolate!) and knowing I’m going to get more tomorrow makes me want to wet my knickers. I could live on chocolate, I really could!

I love Valentine’s Day. Not because I have someone special or the stuffed animals- for the chocolate!
