I know I probably won’t drink chai again, myself.

So, I got sick. I got very very sick. On Friday night, around midnight, I called one of my friends in Austin to say “hey”, and by the end of the conversation, I was like “mmmmkay, I’ll talk to you later, BYE!” because I had to go to the bathroom SO bad. That was about when the world ended.

24 hours later, I stopped puking and shitting. Thank the good sweet lord. Let’s just say that some chai tea that I drank on Friday night was probably bad. I’d had it around for almost a year, in an open container. I think that the girl that made it for me must have used real milk powder because it made me sick as hell. Food poisoning, YAY! All of the other food I ate was shared with other people, and none of them got sick. I’m just glad my roommate was out of town, he would have seen a very very gross side of me. (And probably would have thought I was dying based upon my screams during a few episodes in the bathroom. I cried like a little girl at least twice.)

But, here’s the cute part. My cats were SO sweet to me last night. Every time I laid down on the couch, each of them would claim their spot in my lap. I only had to kick them off about 12 times to go puke or shit (or both, perhaps?!) and as soon as I was back, they would curl back up and go to sleep. It was so freaking sweet. I would scratch Sarge on his head, and he’d wake up just enough to purr, then curl back up and go back to sleep.

Anywho, I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and that New Years will be amazingly awesome. My Christmas was ok… some legal bullshit that my parents need to deal with kindof put a damper on it, but they’ll make it out ok.  Or at least, I hope so! I wrote a great big order a few days ago, so that made me smile. And, my brother gave me a gift card to staples for Christmas, so I went out and bought a new camera today. EEE! I still need to find a charger for my old one, but I really wanted a small one that could fit in my purse all the time. I never have my camera when I want to have it with me, so I figured it was worth the investment.

Let me just say this, I LOVE my new camera (Canon PowerShot SD 1000). I’ve taken a bunch of pics, and I’m so impressed with the color. Even though it’s small, I think it might actually take better pics than my old one. The only drawback is that it doesn’t have manual options, but I knew that my price range wouldn’t allow for that. My next camera will be a digital SLR, and that will give me ALL of those capabilities.

Mmmkay, I think I’m gonna take a nap.

A juicer and some cats…

I don’t have anything exciting to report. So, I will tell y’all that I bought a juicer… that’s kindof exciting, right? I didn’t realize how many fruits or veggies you needed for such a small amount of juice, however. But, today I had a fabulous carrot / celery / lime concoction that pretty much rocked my world. Last night? Orange / Pineapple.

WOOT!

My roomie thinks I’m crazy because of all the waste created, but I remind him that when I start the compost pile in the spring, it will all come full circle!

We had a dog in the house for the weekend. Cassidy (the dog) is so freaking sweet. She’s a golden retriever, and such a sweet girl.  We played fetch and ran around and then she slept with her head in my lap. It was pretty sweet.

The cats, however? Did. Not. Love. Cassidy.

They finally came out from under my bed a couple of hours after Cassidy left for good. Then they ran around for about 17 hours straight…. I’m sure expelling all of that pent up energy. But, good LORD those cats can run circles around this house. I felt like I needed to follow them around the pick up the things they had pushed off various surfaces.

…crazy kids.

Love and whatnot.

So tired…

So, I can’t decide if I’m getting sick or what. My mom had this bug for like a month that made her super tired and sore and whatnot. My dad had it too, and it made him nauseous.

Lately, I’ve been so very tired. Today, I feel lethargic and groggy and my stomach is… off. I mean, it’s not horrible, but it’s just a bit not right. And, I get lightheaded and dizzy occasionally for like a minute. But then, I feel totally fine.

WTF, body? Cut it out. Be sick or be well. No fuckin middle ground, thankyouverymuch.

Oh!! Funny funny!

So, the cats have been scratching more than I’d like them to lately. Last night, I decided it was high time for us to take a bath.

… hilarity ensues …

Lets just say that the High and Mighty, Ms. Eva Luna, Drama Queen of the Universe, was running around the bathroom screaming when she hadn’t even touched the water. I was bathing Sarge, who was mortified enough as it was, and she would just scream and scream and howl and scream. After an incident with the Evil Faucet and Fresh Water, Sarge managed to soak me entirely and get out of the bathtub, only slightly rinsed off. I got him back in for another battle of the wills, and got him slightly more rinsed off. I figured, there was no visible soap on him, and he was mostly rinsed, so it would be ok.

So, I get Eva into the bathtub, although that was a feat upon itself. She REALLY didn’t want to touch the water, so she wrapped herself around my arm so that her back actually touched the water first. She was actually better behaved IN the bathtub, I assume because of the fear of the Evil Water. I managed to rinse her off and get them both slightly dried off before they go to their corners to lick their wounds.

So, this morning, what do I see?

A flea on Sarge’s nose.

DAMNIT.

So I had to traumatize them again with the flea spray. That was a few hours ago, and I just saw Eva scratching pretty hard at her chin. It better not be a fuckin flea, or else I’m going after them with vigor that may traumatize the cats for life.

Also, could someone tell YouTube to upload my damn video? I’ve got the awesomeness of our LED lit kite on video. I just want to share it now!!
