Mabel the Hutt

My cat is like a tiny, fat, furry person.

Right now she's laying on her back on Ruth's office chair. Her head is hanging off the front edge and she's just staring at me. Oooh! She just stretched her front paws out like little arms!

I wish I had a camera right now.

I have the laziest kitten in the world

We got Mabel a new toy a while back. It's a small, carpet covered square with a spring coming out of the middle. On the top of the spring is a fuzzy ball. Mabel is laying on her side with her bottom feet under the square and her top feet on top of it. She's using that leverage to shake the spring enough so that it brings the fuzzy ball down to biting level.

It's cute, but pitiful.

disaster averted!

So I get home from work to find a pile of kitty puke in the bathroom (right on the rug, of course, because in the *whole* bathroom she has to puke right on the rug) which is gross, but happens. So I clean it up and head towards my room to change out of my work clothes. Kitty is on my bed and, from the kitchen, I start to hear kitty throw-up noises.

"Not on my bed! Not on my bed, dammit!"

I make it into my room in just enough time to pitch kitty off my bed so that she can hack up her hairball onto my floor.

Thank god for hardwood flooring, though.

what a morning

So I was standing in the bathroom this morning putting on a little makeup. In the mirror, I spotted a mosquito on the wall behind me. Like the great white hunter I am, I spun and smacked it dead.


However, I managed to hit the wall on what was apparently the exact place which would send the towel bar plummeting to the ground in a big crash. Now, this towel bar has been nothing but trouble since Karl the Slumlord installed it (incorrectly, I might add), so I wasn't surprised.

What was surprising was when the cat, startled out of her toilet drinking daze, yelped, splashed into the toilet, dropped a clump of fur, and rocketed out into the kitchen in a dripping, pissed off mess.

Then, on the way to work, I narrowly avoided being in the middle of a 5 car collision. This pickup truck three cars in front of me and the small sedan directly behind it all of a sudden just slammed on their brakes and swerved halfway over onto the shoulder. The car behind them and in front of me swerved into the lane to the left and I swerved onto the shoulder. The car behind me (going much too fast for how busy 394 was) had to go up onto the embankment. Luckily, no one actually hit anyone else.

Also, I've come to the realization that reading fic all night before going to bed leads to some whack-ass dreams. I was reading Xenafic last night and I feel like I spent all night dreaming about Ares and his cunning plan to both survive the Twilight and to resurrect Strife. Heh.

Last night Ru and I colored my hair back to something approximating my natural color as opposed to the various shades of medium golden brown I've been sporting the past year or so. I forget how much I like really dark hair until I have it again.

reading: aside from Point of Hopes, I started rereading Corona's AJCS slash last night.

being unemployed does not lead to chatter

I had the epiphany the other night that Mabel the Cat is dreadfully afraid of thunder. We've had some huge storms the past couple of days and all she's done is cry and dart back and forth, sticking close to the floor. Poor baby.

[ profile] everlastingwhy and I watched Ghost Ship last night. That movie sucked donkey balls. If not for [ profile] carolinecrane's wonderful slash, I would have turned it off after the first scene with the Cable O'Doom. As it is, I'm pretending the end of the final scene didn't happen. I find nothing as irritating as the 'shocking' twist that every horror movie insists on tagging on to a perfectly rational ending. In my mind, Munder and Dodge went to the light and are now living happily in the afterlife.
