Proof I named 21 well: she's standing her ground against my brother's pit bull. She's maybe one hundredth the size of the dog but she's not flinching any time Brandy jumps up and puts her paws on the cage.

My brave little henchrat. ♥

I love the internet. I can just decide I want to watch something and have anything I want at my fingertips.

Tomorrow, I'm thinking X-Men and X2. I don't know if we'll have time for the third one while Amber is here... I'm still not sure when she'll be arriving, but we will have a warm welcome for her whenever she shows up.

Tomorrow I also have to go by the library and drop this application off, and I want to stop at Wegmans and get more pie crusts so I can use more of the ridiculous amounts of berries we got today. This pie is really good and I want to eat it all weekend long. xD What else am I doing tomorrow? I would like to make pizza. Does anyone have a good pizza dough recipe that doesn't involve yeast? Crap, I need to get cheese tomorrow if we're going to do pizza, I didn't think about that at the grocery store.

I did something I've sort of always wanted to do and smoked on the hammock and looked up at the sky. It was super chill. I was hoping it would help me get to sleep, but I'm not really tired. I feel like I want to do something, I just can't figure out what. If I still feel like this in half an hour I'm going to take a walk, murder rate be damned.

Or I could just sit here and read fanfiction until I fall asleep. That's also an option.

OH RIGHT I WANTED TO POST RAT PICTURES. Who wants to see my ratbabies?

21 and 24 om nom noms )

older pictures )

My sisters both claim my rats bite, but they have never bitten me. They have put their mouths around my fingertips, but they do not bite me. The only damage they regularly deal is from those sharp little claws that you can't really do anything about

Although I do need to get them something to chew on. Something wooden preferably. I should get the rats a toy.

I'm kind of worried about keeping them next semester. I don't know how to move the furniture to make hidden place for their cage, so I think they might have to stay in my closet... so I might not be bringing so many clothes back to Wells with me. Which means I have to go through my boxes of winter shit and sort out what is coming with me and what is going to MA. I need to pick shirts I wear a lot. Pants are less of a problem. I may need to buy new pants at the end of the summer anyways, I just bought a size 12 pair of khakis and if I move down that notch by the end of the summer, I won't even fit into most of the pants I own now, which are loose. Not the shorts though, the shorts are perfect.

It's so weird that when I go back to school, I will for the first time be attending a university with my family about 400 miles away from me. I won't be able to go home and pet my cat every other weekend. I won't be bolstered with my family's steady presence behind me. Every time I do go home, that's four separate Amtrak tickets. I'm not sure if the bus would be cheaper, but I like Amtrak. And when I do get home, it will be in a place I did call home, after my parents got the call to the ministry. We'll be living in Vovoa's house. But it doesn't feel like home the last time I was there. I'm just wondering what the rooming situation is going to be, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to share a room with someone. I could deal with sharing a room

I think the point I was trying to make is that nobody is going to come get my rats for me if I get caught with them. I may have to find someone off-campus to take care of them. I wonder if I could trust the Fairlane boys to take care of them for me. James would probably consider it if I asked him to. And like, I'd be doing the caretaking, the cage changing, he would just have to feed them and water them every day. But that's not asking much in terms of me being there to play with my pet, because it seems like Fairlane is a good place to hang out. All the guys living in one Fairlane apartment are friends of mine/known to me, I will have no problem with James and Ben and Mattie and... I don't remember the other guy who will be living there, is it Jake? Jake is cool. I think those guys might be okay with an emergency rat relocation if necessary. They would probably feed my rats junk food like chips.

Oh, that's going to be a double edged sword: I can get all my recurring pet food needs mailed right to Wells... in a PetCo box. Too obvious.

Ah, the sun's coming up. I should at least try to sleep.

femmealunettes: (100% focus : Charles Xavier)
Today has been a fair bit of ridiculous in several dimensions.

My parents and my youngest sister are gone. They left around dinnertime; they're staying in Albany tonight and driving on to New Bedford tomorrow morning. Julia and I have been left to our own devices. The first thing we did was go grocery shopping so I could bake a (fucking PHENOMENAL) pie. Blueberry-raspberry-blackberry-strawberry. It's so damn good. And I'm going to use the leftover berries to make fruit salad... or maybe more pie. PIE, YOU GUYS, IT'S SO DAMN GOOD. We also ran a couple more errands.

Julia picked up her-- boyfriend? something. Jason. Her Jason. Then we spent too much time trying (and eventually) succeeding in acquiring a volume of the green book. Then we came back home and Julia and I decided that robotripping and watching Kick-Ass was an excellent plan... and you know what? It WAS an excellent plan.

But now Julia and Jason are asleep, and I am still awake and robotripping. So I'm kind of swaying along to Lady Gaga in the living room, trying to figure out if I have enough focus to watch X-Men: First Class again. I think that's probably going to be a yes. I love hyperproductive fandoms, movies are so good for starting huge rampant kink memes (see: Star Trek) and I already loved X-Men but now there's James McAvoy, who is just lovely in so many ways.

There was something else I wanted to talk about... I played with 21 for a while but 24 won't let me take her out of the cage, she's so skittish, I wish I could just hold her but she squeaks like she's being murdered when I try to pick her up. I sent a couple of textbooks to Amazon.com today, so next week I will be waiting for them to credit my account, and then I am going to go crazy and order the rest of the Venture Brothers DVDs and only have to pay like five bucks. I think this is a good plan.

Oh yeah, and tomorrow I have to go bring my application and a ~*~cover letter~*~ and my ~*~resume~*~ to the library, tildes and asterisks because this is the first job I've had to submit a resume or a cover letter for and I really, really, really hope I get it because I would be an excellent library clerk, I wanted to be a librarian for almost a decade, I've worked in libraries before, this could be really good for me.

But I'm not going to pin too many hopes on it because it fucking SUCKS to be an optimist and have things fail to work out. So I'm going to try to be a realist and keep in mind I'm probably not as qualified for this position as I think I am, and they're probably not going to want to hire me for just the summer and then have me leave for school and oh yeah I'm moving away so literally I would have this job for two months. But it would look good on my ~*~resume~*~ when I get to Massachusetts.

One final thing: [livejournal.com profile] l_loire and [livejournal.com profile] hearts_blood have lifted a huge portion of the worry associated with returning to Wells, and I would probably be kind of losing my mind without their kindness bolstering me. So thank you, Brian and April. ♥

I have mentioned before that Xena likes to spend her time in my room. I have also mentioned that she's a smelly old dog. ♥

And I know I've mentioned that she is terrified of wind. Unless she's been given some kind of doggy downer (yes, my dog has been prescribed anxiety medication for days like this...) she will shiver constantly and never sit still.

So when it's briskly windy, the trees making a nice shushing that's very calming, my room is getting nicely aired... I have my windows closed and my face up to stinky dog face, petting her and trying to calm her down.

I love my doggy. ♥ And I'm very glad that she doesn't sleep on my bed with me. xD

goodnight, ratface.

My mom took Heather to the vet this morning.

I remember when I got her. We'd gone into a pet store to look at the puppies, and I drifted over to the rat tank, as I have a habit of doing. And I saw this completely adorable little tan-hooded rat with a weird kink in her tail. I don't even remember how much I paid for her, but it was ridiculously cheap because they weren't rats for pets, they were feeder rats. I didn't even have a cage; some lady who was in the store brought one back for me.

I just... I put my hand in the tank and she came right up to sniff at my fingers. I took her out and she was so sweet. Never once has she bitten anyone hard enough to break the skin, or bitten them maliciously-- only "oh hey food! wait! finger not food!" bites.

Heather Ratface has been a wonderful pet. I don't know if I've been as good a ratmommy to her as she has been a ratbaby to me, but I love her.

I am working hard to make today WIN. This involves the application of my attention toward doing that thing I'm not talking about today, finding icons that will give me more range of characters and emotions, finishing Section 2 for the awards (I'm more than half done), and eventually cleaning my room. I also have a whole crateful of books to add to Paperbackswap, and I have to study (read: skim) the DMV driver's guide so I can get my permit for the second time, because I am FAIL at driving.

I should have done that in list form. Oh well.

Speaking of FAIL, Know Your Meme! It cleared it all up, from the beginning of the meme to the "Epic" threshold.

Butcher is just now starting to sleep on my bed when this chair is occupied. He even stayed with me a little while when I went to bed last night. I get cuddles from my boycat ♥

I lost all my links because Chatzy hates Firefox. So from now on, my Broomcloseting will take place via IE. Which actually makes things easier, switching windows instead of tabs. Win!


My cousin's sister-in-law is a vet, and she asked the best way to put down a rodent, and apparently the only acceptable painless way is to break its neck. Which I completely cannot do. I would have nightmares forever and cry for like a week. But Heather's tumors are getting huge, yeah, there's a noticeable secondary one. :/


Let's end this on a better note. x.x Oh! I was supposed to make omelets an hour ago, but my mom is home so I'm going to beg her for french toast. Mmmm, french toast.

Butcher just caught a mouse.

Like, an actual real mouse. He bit the shit out of it and sat it down in front of the couch where Kristin and I were watching a movie.

I kind of scooped it into my empty ice cream bowl and dropped it outside. :/ The poor thing was all fucked up, and I was freaked out...

Butcher is a mighty hunter, and earned his name. Still, that fucking wigged me out. o_o

Tonight's SGA was... okay. Not great (except for the flaming innuendo and John yelling "Rodney!" like a million times, given usually in exasperation, but still), but even not great for SGA is still pretty darn good. And oh, how much do I love Zelenka? Brave little toaster with his cane. xD

I haven't been able to get online all day and it's been distressing! Finally Charter sorted their crap out and Kristin sorted OUR crap out and, oh hello darlings I'm back.

Minerva and Butcher are thick as thieves now. Kristin and I went down to the humane society thrift store and got them food and a big water bowl, so now both sides of the food/water dish are full of food for two hungry kittens and there's enough water that I don't need to refill it every few hours for them. And "real cat litter!" as Kristin put it, because I'm a goddamn dirty hippie and tried using biodegradable pine litter. ;_; Saving the planet is less immediately important than making the house NOT reek of cat poo, though.

Anyhow, stranded offline was bad because I have this awful habit of trying to read fanfic before I get really into a series (see: the massive amounts of McShep fic I've been consuming) and I know that Life On Mars is only an eight-episode-per-series show, but that still means I'm only a quarter of the way through the entirety of the show so far.

I have such a ridiculous thing for Chris Skelton, though. He's so junior-member-of-the-club eager. (the floppy hair and sense of humor help as well.)

Hm. I can look for LoM icons, or I can look for fic, or I can force Kristin to send me the rest of the first series...

Or I can do all three! Multitasking! It's the key to the future!

I don't even know if people check these links or what, but it makes me feel productive to put them up, so have some more!

Thin, biodegradable, flexible batteries that can be powered by bodily fluids. This could be SO GOOD for the medical community, above and beyond anything technology has seen in a long time. Batteries have been the one thing that haven't progressed much, accounting for the size and weight of most of a lot of portable electronics. Between these batteries and flash-memory drives, laptops have a lot of potential coming at them!

The Special Projects Idea Generator. Hit the random button and run with it!

The single most badass, awesome backpack you will ever see. It looks like he has a real (okay, whatever) dragon wrapped around his back!

The Roman Empire fell, and we ain't far behind. And no one's listening. Surprise, surprise? Not really, to anyone who pays attention (i.e. no one who's in charge...)

America's Seven Most Hated Substances. I'm surprised sex toys aren't on the list, those are also illegal on a state level in some places. And I'm not surprised at all to find out weed is number one...

Because MEDICAL marijuana users, and growers, are being given punitive sentences while some lady who murdered her husband spent less than 70 days in jail. WHAT. Does this make any sort of sense at all? The government spends a lot more than it makes on the war on drugs, because they come down so hard on the drug that's softest and most popular.

For your daily dose of celeb pseudo-porn, someone caught Anne Hathaway giving her boyfriend a blowjob on a yacht. In a bikini! Oh, Anne, I am so all about oral sex on a boat. Call me. xD

There is a good reason not to take this flyer down.

42% of Republicans approve of domestic wiretapping. Everyone else is sane, rational, and unwilling to hand over personal liberties to the manchild in the White House.

This cat walked into our apartment this morning like she was meant to be here.

We're calling her Minerva. We can't afford to keep her, but she's too cute not to want to keep...

Anyhow. Now we have a little boycat and a little girlcat. She's a little smaller than Butcher, longer haired, and so far all she's done that I've seen is sleep in the windowsill. Awwwwww.

Ray Toro is haunting my dreams. Not in a bad way, but in a "wow, I had no idea my subconscious was so enamoured with him" way, and just, how many dreams do I have to have about mooning over him in post-apocalyptic settings? Seriously? Could we have the sexual tension without the aliens sending deadly weather to wreck all we know and love first? x.x

Anyhow I slept until three to see how that dream would pan out, and the best part of it was seeing giant gorillas playing guitars on a train taking them away from New York. That was pretty hilarious.

The Butcher keeps harrassing Heather Ratface. I may have to move her cage to keep him away. I may just take her out and let her kick his ass, then he'll stay away. Hopefully. I know she can take him.

awwwwraytoro. )

The push to clean the living room didn't turn out so great. More of a push this afternoon, yes.

O hai, I just took Heather out and put her on top of the cage with Butcher and they just kind of sniffed each other and went "eh, okay?" That was pretty cool. But I'm still making an effort to keep him away from her because it obviously freaks her out to have him up there.

Part of my dream definitely involved me mistaking Against Me! for another band and mistakenly getting the wrong CD. Probably because the last thing I downloaded before bed was the new Against Me! album, which I haven't even finished listening to yet, but I'm liking it. I just snagged Hellogoodbye, I've heard good things about them, too.

And now I'm going to go beat my cat up for knocking things off the kitchen table. Throwing him into a bunch of pillows is SO MUCH FUN!

My cat is so WEIRD. I thought they weren't supposed to like citrus but he's all over my clementine.

He's been sleeping on top of the rat cage, too. D< I don't know if this means they're getting to know each other or (more probably) he wants to keep an eye on his future dinner. I did try to introduce them when he was a kitten, but... we'll see.

I can't stay mad at him for anything. He's too cute. Even though he tried to pierce my nose with his teeth.

Q: does anyone on my friendslist have "overkill" by Colin Hay that they could upload for me? The song was used on Scrubs and I heard it on Katie's satellite radio on our way to the reservation so Kelly could buy cigarettes. (which is what I did this afternoon. Drove out to Altona and back. Altona is so creepy. It's got the highest incidence rate of incest in the US. Including in the south. >> )

Anyhow. I just wanted to use the new icon, really. That bunny is so cute, and the sentiment is... so right now.

Also: it is hot as hell out there ugh you guys I hate August temperatures.

I just watched The Siege with Kelly. It got a little heavy handed but all in all I thought it was really interesting. It was made in 1998, but predicts terrorist cells operating in NYC. Also, Denzel Washington and Tony Shalhoub! Who doesn't love Tony Shalhoub, I ask you. And Bruce Willis plays a pretty terrifying general. I highly suggest Netflixing it!

I was pretty productive today. Tomorrow I'm probably going to pull the dryer out and see if the plug came loose, because dry clothes = bonus of warmth and nice smells. And Kelly got me the birthday gift of doing the dishes for me. xD

I caught a couple hours sleep on the couch early in the afternoon; the cat was being surprisingly affectionate and curled up right next to me for an equally long nap. It's nice having a cat around, I feel a lot less lonely when I'm the only one in the house now. The rat didn't really confer the same sort of companionship, I guess. xD Although I love my ratface dearly. I'm going to change her cage right before I take the trash out tonight.

Kristin got me things in Burlington today. The absolute best is a pill box with a picture of Freud on it. "Don't forget to take your meds!" It's awesomecredible. And a rly cute pink shirt (oh my god I've been noticing an increase of pink in my wardrobe :O ) and a pair of beautiful chopsticks, and a hanging picture holder. I've already put in pictures of Sadie, Oreo, a family shot minus my mom (who was taking the picture) which was taken right after we moved up here, one of Kelly, Dennis and Jigga, and one of just Dennis because he has an infectious smile.

The cat is sleeping on a box of clothes with his tail across his nose. I took a picture and he woke up, but curled back up and went right back to sleep. He's so delightfully adorable. (I know this must be getting monotonous with the cat talk, but OMFG KITTENZ.)

I'm thinking about making dinner and waking Kristin up, not necessarily in that order. I have a good feeling about tomorrow, I think things will go well for me. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, you all should send me good vibes. xD

I'm very optimistic, and I like the feeling!

Because I put all my substance in the last post, have some entertainment.



The Butcher hates on Sigur Ros. Or he thinks they're delicious, I'm not sure.

This album, I snagged from RegnYouth Archives, and although there are some witty lines in other songs, I have to say this one caught my ear the most. It's kind of weird, but I like it anyhow, you guys should listen to it.

Art Brut - Pump Up The Volume
I'm taking it slowly
I've been reading the signs
I found my hand in a place
Where I can't tell if she minds
Rolling around amongst our clothes on the floor
I can't help it:
"Have you heard this song before?"

I know I shouldn't
Is it so wrong
To break from your kiss
To turn up a pop song


Sometimes music > makeouts. Yes? Yes.

The Butcher sort of slept with me last night, and by sort of I mean "oh my god I'm going to roll over and kill this kitten" fear got to me by 3, and I moved him onto the couch where he likes sleeping anyhow. Woke up to a phone call and he was mewing at me, but all the kitten chow was gone, so at least I'm sure he's eating. He seems to like it better when we soften the kibbles up, so I'm giving him a little bit of food with warm water mixed in to eat every now and then, and he can go attack the kibble whenever he wants it, because this poor cat has not been fed right.

Good morning, Butcher. xD He went from my lap to the desk to poke around./////****** And still is, lol numberpad. Now he's playing in the kitchen with a sparkly thing, oh cat.

Yes, this journal is probably going to be nothing more than "omgkitten" for a while. xD

I'm going to finish boxing things up and addressing them, take a shower and go mail them. Funfunfun.
femmealunettes: (you are not your LJ.)
The Butcher now has a nametag, a collar that's too big for his teeny neck (no rly, he got a whole arm stuck in there trying to paw it off), toys, and the vital cat accoutrements. Miss Heather Ratface has a running ball which she does not seem to enjoy, but I hope she will come to like it because rats running around in balls = doubleplus hilarity.



They're so fucking cute!

So uh, it looks like our ridiculously high phone bill might actually have some basis in truth re: my brother's useage. Even so, forty cents a minute is fucking ridiculous. I'm the lucky one who gets to call Verizon and be all "fix this or lose us as customers forever," which I so don't want to do because I'm due to get a new phone free (or, you know, cheaper because of a rebate) and I want the awesome one my brother has. But, yeah, $540 is standing between me and that phone, and all of my credit cards got declined at PetSmart so I had to borrow money from Dennis, so I'm basically flat-ass broke.

Speaking of which, if anyone has some srs anime fans on their flist, could you point them in the direction of the sale to keep us from getting freaking evicted or something? Because that would be super awesome of you... ♥?

Dennis got a ticket on the way back down Cornelia for not wearing his seatbelt, which is bullshit because that Statie had the sun in his eyes and Dennis had his arm up to hold the wheel, as he always does, and I hope that pig doesn't make his quota this month because the cops around here are all douchebags.

I'm trying really hard to be positive. Like, there shouldn't be any reason at all for me to be down right now, but I just. Don't know how I'm going to do ANYTHING. I fail at life and emotional stability and basically everything.

Man, I missed having LJ here so I could complain to people about my mood swings. Except, you know, being a whiny bitch in front of the whole internet is probably not advisable. Whatever. I have writing to do, if I can manage it. And if I can't, well, there's NaNo-length AU MCR fic, which is almost as good as having a life.
