Friday Is.
I love sleeping late, not being woken up by an alarm. Lovely morning in bed today. Had a cat briefly but we FINALLY had a nice sunny day, so they were out and about mostly.

Spent the morning eating a leftover hamburger (dinner last night was an oldfashioned one: cheeseburgers, fries and dill pickles. mmmm). Scanned some trip pictures in, read a bit. Watched a rerun of L&O. Then it was out for a matinee of _Finding Nemo_. I loved it! Esp Dory. BTW, if you see it, stay for the length of the credits, they have animation too. Then it was an early dinner at the Applebees in the complex. mmm. Tasty Orange Chicken Skillet. Now Im home, scanning pictures and watching the Sox game. Don't know why I'm so tired on such a lazy day. sigh. Also waiting for my Fruit2o to defrost. I put it in the freezer for a quick cool before the movie, forgot out it, and remembered long after we got home. Oops (g).

Oh, d-d-dear! Even though you might be frightened
easily, people love
you for your cuteness and
willingness to help them. More comfortable
your own home than anywhere else, you make your
house your
castle. But don't worry, your pals
will protect you from Hefalumps
and Woozles.

Work goes. Worked my normal day off yesterday, receiving. Not my favorite or most comfortable thing, but it went ok that I know of. They were powerwashing all the carts, rolling tables, UBoats, rolling racks etc out in the back lot behind the loading dock. So they were tramping in and out and in and out and it was wet and the venders were in and out and it was just Grand Central station (g). Today went ok. Did my price changes, worked on some reports, re-tagged the meat freezer and went home in time for lunch. Picked up a California Roll from the Sushi Department.

Watching my oldest cat again. I think she's been spitting up her medication. Which is not good.

Spent the afternoon reading my email, some fanfic, and Ive been scanning (slowly) my OZ/NZ pics into my computer. My neat new software can also create web albums and slide shows (with music) Ive already done an experiment and set one of my rolls (the LotR tour) to the track "The King of the Golden Hall". Man is it cool. Ive only scanned 4 rolls in so far. Only 31 rolls left to scan (g>

Have another book on my BookPile which has gone to the top. David Halberstam's "The Teammates" the story of Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky's last visit to Ted Williams, and the story of their lives and careers together. Man is it good.

Watching the Sox play now. It's Turn Back the Clock day. They're playing the Pirates whom they havent played before this week since 1903 and they're wearing the 1903 style uniforms. I love old uniforms. They look *so* cool.

Have the day off tomorrow. Thank god. Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

If it's Tuesday, it must be Belgium
I wish.

I'm so confused. Drove my car to and from work today. Ran perfectly. No sounds, no shivering. Nothing. I need an oil change soon anyway. Just no time to do it in. Maybe if I have my normal two days off next week, I can get it done and tell them about the noises. Unless it starts making them again. Then it's an immediate call and I'll have to juggle getting into work.

Have to work tomorrow instead of having a day off. Receiving. Bleh. Had a run in with someone not even there at work today. Found out they went to the Bossboss about an intereaction we had yesterday where she wanted me to stop what I was doing and do something SHE could do, and in fact should have done herself. hrmph. Bossboss said we'd just chalk it up to a miscommunication. Hope he's not thinking evil things about me cause of her. grrrrr. *thinks nasty thoughts about the woman*.

Got myself a cute little scanner for my laptop. Supposed to have some cool features I'll play with later. Used a gift card I got for Xmas finally. It only paid for half of it, but I figured to get something fun and frivious with it. So cool.

And apparently I have a whole brain :)

Your Brain Usage Profile

Auditory : 53%
Visual : 46%
Left : 47%
Right : 52%

Holly, your hemispheric dominance is equally divided between left and
right brain, while you show a moderate preference for auditory versus
visual learning, signs of a balanced and flexible person.

Your balance gives you the enviable capacity to be verbal and literate
while retaining a certain "flair" and individuality. You are logical and
compliant but only to a degree. You are organized without being
compulsive, goal-directed without being driven, and a "thinking"
individual without being excessively so.

The one problem you might have is that your learning might not be as
efficient as you would like. At times you will work from the specific to
the general, while at other times you'll work from the general to the
specific. Sometimes you will be logical in your approach while at other
times random. Since you cannot always control the choice, you may
experience frustrations not normally felt by persons with a more defined
and directed learning style.

You may also minimally experience conflicts associated with auditory
processing. You will be systematic and sequential in your processing of
information, you will most often focus on a single dimension of the
problem or material, and you will be more reflective, i.e., "taking the
data in" as opposed to "devouring" it.

Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are,
perhaps, a little too critical of yourself - and of others - while
maintaining an "openness" which is redeeming. Indecisiveness is a
problem and your creativity is not in keeping with your potential. Being
a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more
immediate, the more obvious and the more functional.

It's been a while since I last updated. Between working an extra day a week (doing recieving of all things. bleh), working longer hours 'cause it's tourist season, my oldest cat being sick, plus some general maliase .. . gak.

That and I'm trying to make inroads through my book pile. Finished Jonathon Kellerman's The Cold Heart last night. Now I'm working on Bernard Cornwall's Sharpe's Eagle. Next on the pile is Doug Horning's 1975-The Boys of October, How the 1975 Boston Red Sox Embodied Baseball's Ideals-and Restored Our Spirits.

My car also made some strange noises today. Think I might have to call my mechanic if it makes them tomorrow. Sigh. Spend a few hundred dollars on the cat one month, switch letters and spend a few more hundred dollars on the car the next. *Dreads the worst*

And for a bit of fun, cause we always need fun.

Day off today. Woke up way way later than I was planning on . I think I slept between 11 an 12 hours. Gak. Guess I must have needed it, but still. Gak. Did wake up with three cats snuggled close. That was nice. Like that.

Yesterday was insane at work. After weeks of short days, I worked a full day yeterday. And a busy one too. This weekend is the kickoff weekend for the season around here, so I expect more days like that to come. Here come the tourists. Which is good, in that they bring their money, but bad in that they bring their cars and bad driving {G}. Polulation around here explodes from this weekend until Labor Day. And the cops are out in force. People just have too many beers this weekend. Gotta drive carefully (and defensively {g})

Rainy day here. Put my Aloe Plant out on the porch for a bit of a drink. I keep seeing it out of the corner of my eye and thinking it's a cat waiting to be let in. heehee.

Should do something productive. Have a load and a half of laundry ready to go. Should go to the post office, expecting a package from Amazon. But right now Im sitting here, watching cable, eating leftover steak tips and drinking a snapple. And netting. I could also watch a DVD or something. hmmm. Sox game on tonight. I'll watch that. They were off last night. Was stuck with reruns of CSI and L&O. Not that that's bad, but rather have new ones or a game . At least the Yankees lost {eg}.

Now. If I could only change something into money, I'd be all set .

Bucky Bleeping Dent
Is going to be at Fenway tonight. I hope he has bodyguards :). Bleep

On a bright note . Man, what a game last night. First thought - No Pedro. We're screwed. Next note. Chen. So when's the next game? First pitch. Is it tomorrow yet? Then. Wow. They really played as a team, picked up their pitcher. And Nomar. 21. How cool. And Mueller, Mueller the doubles machine. Next up. Wake and Rocket. Hope the weather clears. Go, Wake. rrrrrrrooooooooooo-ger. rrrrrroooooooooooo-ger.

Had a lovely day off today, woke up with only one cat. El Pippo but have spent virtually the whole day snuggling in front of the TV with Julian and my laptop. He's either been leaning against my back, on my lap or tucked into my leg. Have started a laundry but I really need to go downstairs and finish it. But if I do I'll disturb Julian and he'll follow me into the basement. But I need clean clothes .

Good news
Well I'm back from the dentist. No cavities! Woo!. I'm still having problems with my gums, however. They recommended that I use the manual toothbrush in the mornings still but switch to an electric one at night. And set a timer so I brush for long enough . All this stuff to remember. :-D

I'm *not* going to watch Buffy live tonight. I am going to tape and watch later. Maybe much later Speculation and an Angel SpoilerCollapse )

Finally got around to watching the DVD of Dogma I got yesterday. Well I watched it yesterday, got it weeks ago. Damn, Alan Rickman is sexy sexy sexy. And on the What You Notice AFTER Other Events Occur scale - Howard Shore did the music for Dogma?? My brain bends. And still on my Alan kick, (he wants me bad you know) I finished up Dogma and went online and ordered the Dark Harbor DVD. mmm Nekkid Alan. And while I was there I went and ordered Seasons 1 and 2 of Red Dwarf. I'm a Rimmer Girl . Oooo that didn't sound good did it . Ok how about Im an Arnold girl .

I have to leave for the dentist in about an hour. I don't wanna. It's suppossed to be just a cleaning, but for the last couple years almost *every* time I've gone they've started to clean and "ohoh. We'll need to take care of that. I've spent more on dental care in the last couple years than since I had BRACES. And I *have* dental coverage. Sigh.

Dueling Sundays`
My Sundays always feel a bit like two different days. Best and worst. I have to get up at 4am to throw clothes on and be at work at 5. It's always pretty dark and often chilly. And I always want to stay in bed with whichever cat is sharing my covers with me. And there's nothing on TV to keep me company while I dress (since they took the reruns of Invisible Man off anyway). And then, I gotta go in (thank god I live less than 10 miles from work) and take all the old signs and tags down, put all new sale ones up, get my email, make the computer coupon file corrections, print out more tags, put them up, etc. Me and my co-worker. Two of us do this job, when one of us isn't sick or taking the day off.

Anyway there's that, but if work goes smoothly, Im usually out by 10 or 1030. And then I have a nice relaxing Sunday If I want I can take a nap and still be up for lunch (and when many people ARE starting their day ). I did take a nice long nap today. When I got home and back into sleep clothes, both Skittles and Pippin were in my bed. I snuggled in next to them, pulled a pillow over my head and dozed. Only to be awoken by a head squirming under said pillow. Julian. He then went licklick and rubbed all over my face with a VERY cold and wet nose . Then BOOM. he was snoozing under my chin. Them me and my three cats were all nice and warm and cozy and they actually gave me lots of space in the bed. Wonders of wonders . Got up, started lunch.
I made my cheese meatloaf with parsley tomato sauce. -RecipeCollapse )

By the time the meat of the loaf was done the Red Sox game was one. They played very well today. Burkie pitched a good game and Thank God that included the 6th inning . And Im glad to see not many are giving Trot serous flak. Just mostly a bit of ribbing and lots of defending. And :-P neener Yanks lost . We'll see what comes in the next few days. Bring em on.

A lazy Friday
Day off for me too. Nice warm morning lying in bed with two of my cats (Pippin and Julian). Skittles seems to be doing well. Back to her old Queen Bee self . Finally got Jules in for his booster yesterday. Serenaded me the entire drive there and back. The vet didn't even have to take him out of the carrier. Took us into the office, I opened the carrier, she stuck her hands in and injected him. That was that. There was a beautiful dog in the waiting room. A female Bernese/Australian Shepherd mix. I need another dog. But I need to find the right one. I miss Cougar a lot lately.

Watched the Sox game last night. Pedro was Pedro. No other way to say it. Great to see the K-men back in action. They interviewed them during the game and they said that the Sox front office has been trying to find a good place for them during the game. They were on the catwalk of the Green Monster seats last night (the Sox ownership had gotten them tickets for up there to try out that spot). Personally I think it was a great spot for them. Hope the ownership keeps them there. I really like this new ownership. They really seem to bend over backwards to do things the right way. It's really nice to see.

Also really enjoyed the season finales of tWW and CSI. SpoilersCollapse )

I've been totally addicted to watching L&O and NYPD Blue reruns on TNT in the afternoons. Yesterdays was even MORE poignant as a rerun for a way that the people who made the the show could have ever predicted. They just finished up Simone's death arc yesterday. In the teaser to the ep, Simone was having one of this out of body dreams where he was on his roof, talking to another recently departed friend. And looming in the background was the WTC. Wow. Not only did I need Kleenix for the end of that episode, but I had to break it out early.

Beautiful eclipse last night. The moon rose just after dark here, over the bay. It was HUGE and bright orange and round. That was pretty all by itself, but as it rose higher and became that bright pale white the full moon can get it began to disappear. And just after the sox game ended it was almost gone. Looked almost like a little toupee . Beautifully dark. And the stars shone.

I was a bit torn. They were interviewing Todd Walker on the post-game show right about then. He was all freshly shaved with still wet hair and wearing this gorgeous silky leather coat. Mwrrrorrr.

Took this quiz the other day. I was hoping to be Queenstown (I fell in love with Queenstown) but turns out that wasn't an option. But I did like Christchurch as well so not too bad

You are Christchurch.

Trying out new icons and other random stuff

Got my oldest cat out of hock yesterday. She's only cost several hundred dollars this month Back when she was about a year old she was run over by a car and broke her pelvis. She made a full recovery (surpassing Vet's expectations at the time) but it healed a bit crooked, so certain parts of it are narrowed. How do I put this delicatly. . . well she has problems with what happens to food after it's eaten . Anyway, since that time, we put fiber powder in her food but sometimes, well it doesn't work and we have to take her into the vet for . . . well you can use your imagination. Well it happened earlier in the month (right after I took all three to the vets for their shots. more $ there) so we took her in and it was done and we took her home that same afternoon. Well days passed (snert pun) and nothing. And nothing. And nothing. So monday back in she went. More of the same plus a blood test and a thyroid test for some other stuff. Stayed over night. Picked her up yesterday afternoon with new medications and special foods. Really expensive special foods . Well she's 18l. I suppose she deserves it. My credit card hates me though. sigh. I was going to get the results of her tests when I took Julian in today for a booster shot in series for his one earlier in the month, but my mother had a brain spasm and let him out before she went to work, only a couple of hours before his appointment. So I had to call to reschedule. I was not pleased. Small arguement over that but I got over it . I told her she owes me for this though.

Pip on the other hand isnt making news at all. Although I do have to thank Fuz for the gifty she sent. A catnip pillow. I had it on the stove inside it's mailing envelope inside ANOTHER package. And the package was BEHIND a box of friend chicken I brought home for dinner later. Well I heard noises in the kitchen and went in and pip was on the stove, standing on the box of friend chicken. I thought he was EATING the chicken so I ran in. Nope, he had his head buried in the envelope with the little pillow. So I grabbed him and the pillow and placed them both on the floor. When I left, he was lying there making love to it. Either that or he was trying to kill it. Hard to tell with cats and catnip toys.

On other fronts. Im taping the last two eps of Buffy to watch later. I'm refusting to watch live. I live in fear of Joss and what he'll do with a show that's ending I wanna know BEFORE hand. Season finale of tWW tonight. Don't think anyone will be killed off THIS season but who knows. I wasn't expecting it last season either . Series finale of CSI tommorrow. Looks like it might have a good Greg scene or two. Hopefully anyway.

My Sox won last night. They played with a lot of heart last night. good to see. And I have to admit that Manny has been really upping the quality of his non-hitting aspects of his game. He's always been a great hitter but now his defensive plays and baserunning have been great too. Lovely to see. Now if only Burkett can pitch a good sixth inning . Casey goes tonight. I'll try to give him a good icon posting for luck.
