I just had a guy ask me if a dog treadmill could support his ostrich.  0_o 

Bwhahahah!  Some days, I really like my job.

I went to close the window and shade in the kitty room and didn't bother to turn on the light.  When I turned around, Colonel, my black cat, had come in to see what I was doing and I ... kind of ... tripped over him.  He yowled and fled into my bedroom, and Rodney came charging in after to see what the hell happened.  I turned on the light to make sure Colonel was all right, and as I was holding him and apologizing, Rodney very slowly and deliberately nipped my calf.

It didn't even hurt, it was much more of a warning than anything, but it made me laugh.  I had actually expected it, since this was not the first time that I've done something to Colonel and Rodney has come to his defense.  

Still...I felt pretty bad because Colonel was all hunched over and giving me a pathetic look, as though I had tripped over him on purpose, and Rodney was giving me the "Mommy, how could you?" look.  

I think some catnip and maybe some extra baby food may be in order tonight.

It snowed last night and the night before, which was wonderful, as I love snow. And then it rained this morning, even though it's still below freezing.

I didn't think the roads were too terrible, so when I got out of my car at work and headed into the building I didn't really think of how slippery the road was. Until I slipped and did a nose dive.

Nothing hurt, but my pants got wet and my hand got a bit of a scrape, so I figured when I got off my shift, which was only 3 hours today, I would go home and just take a nap and all would be well with the world.

Then I got a call from my friend around 4 wanting me to come over for hot chocolate and to brainstorm Christmas ideas.

As soon as I stepped off the stairs leading into my apartment my foot slipped from under me and I went ass over teakettle. It took me a few seconds to get my wits again and realize I hadn't brained myself, and then I slid my way to my car and all was good.

Now I'm sitting with a heating pad on my back and a hydro in my system to ward off the worst of the pain.


I don't want to go to work tomorrow, because right now the idea of standing for 10 hours just makes me want to curl up and pull the blanket over my head.

Sooooo... How are you all doing? I hope everyone is having a much less ice-ladden day than I, and you can all stay safe and warm tonight.

Hello, everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, no matter what you celebrate.  I had a wonderful Christmas with my family, so different from last year, lol, and have spent a lot of time with my sister and brother.  I don't see them very much, so it was great to just sit and talk with them. 

Talking, however, was not the only thing we got up to.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, though I warn you now that they are quite probably very disturbing.  If you have a problem with snowman abuse, please to do not click.  No, seriously, these are not for the faint of heart.  I think my siblings and I quite possibly may need mental help.  I'll let you decide.  But, honesty, you've been warned!  Oh, and these are certainly not dial up friendly.
Disturbing snowmen ahead - proceed at own risk )

Also, I just wanted to thank everyone who sent me a Christmas card, it really meant a lot  Thank you!   [ profile] shirebound , [ profile] forcryinoutloud , [ profile] mik100 ,

Was talking with a friend and we got started, somehow, on that game where you take your first pet's name and the name of the street you grew up on and come out with your porn star name.  Apparently, I'm.. wait for it.... THUMPER NEWCOMER.

I just had the most bizare experience with my cats. When I was getting them their food I accidentally stepped on Colonel's paw and he took off, while Rodney puffed up and looked around like he expected the devil himself to appear. When I went to check on Colonel he took off into my room, and just as I was about to follow Rodney jumped up on my leg with claws out. I yelled and batted him off, and he actually hissed at me!! The little brat had his tail puffed up and his ears laid back as though I were the most horrible person ever and was trying to kill his brother. Really, it was like he was trying to distract me so Colonel could get away. He was hissing and had his paw raised, so I grabbed the water bottle and started spraying him as much as I could to let him know that that behavior is not allowed.

I think we're at an impasse now, with both cats rather leery of me. Sheesh, I feel like I'm dealing with teenagers! And all this because Colonel went into the pantry he knows he's not allowed in and sat down behind me. For crying out loud!

Apparently my cat, Colonel, is a bit more high strung than I had imagined. I turned the bathtub on, went out for like, less than a minute, and when I came back into the bathroom, both Colonel and Rodney went crazy.
I mean, CRAZY!!
Colonel flattened himself on the ground while trying to scramble backword and Rodney was darting about like a crazy thing, and then Colonel took a literal flying leap towards the bathtub - which, by the way, had been running for about two minutes - and all I could think was, oh this can't end well.  But apparently my cat is also a ninja, becuase he didn't even touch the water.  He rebounded off the side of the wall, went scrambling some more on the tiles, and then disapeared under the bed.  This all took about 10 seconds, and I'm left wondering, what the hell?  When I got out of the shower neither of the cats was waiting for me, which in itself is unusual, and after I got dressed and went into the living room, I found Rodney playing guard to Colonel hiding under the couch.
Now Colonel is wandering around with a dazed expression, and I have to wonder - what the hell is up with that? 
Pyscho ninja kitties.  They should have their own cartoon!

I was taking a bath after work, enjoying the warm water and the fact that I have my very own bathroom! Colonel, the shyer of the two, poked his nose around the shower curtain and then jumped up on the rim of the tub by my feet to say hi. He was walking slowly and cautiously over to where I was laying against the back of the tub. Suddenly this shadow looms out of the darkness to jump against the shower curtain, precisely where Colonel was standing, and the next thing I know Colonel is in the tub making undignified noises and Rodney is staring at us with wide, shocked eyes. Colonel dragged himself out of the tub and glared at his brother for a very long time while he tried to dry himself off, and Rodney wandered about for a bit with a, "What just happened?" look on his face. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Goodness, I love my cats!

Hi, all. This is just something I thought you all might get a kick out of. I know it made me feel smart.

Just some things that I have learned since I joined the Army. Cut for some adult themes and general grossness. The Army is mostly male oriented, after all.

Well, those are some of the things I have learned while living in the Army.  Isn't it nice to see what goes on behind the facade?

Oh my goodness, I just saw one of the funniest things. One of the guys in my platoon burned the bottom of his feet really bad when he fell at a party and landed in some charcoal. He's in a wheelchair right now.
Another friend has her foot in a boot, because she tore something in her ankle and has to hobble around. The guy in the wheelchair threw her beret out into the rocks around the rest area we were all sitting in, then tossed her water bottle. She grabbed his pain pills and threw them into the rocks.
He grabbed ahold of her and she ended up dragging him out of his wheelchair halfway out onto the rocks before he gave up. She grabbed her beret and water bottle, then hijacked his wheelchair. He started hobbling after her, she started to hobble faster. The snail chasing the turtle!
They weren't going any faster than a quick walk, but he was chasing her and she was trying to go places she knew he couldn't. When he finally did get his wheelchair back, he started chsing her!
It was absolutely hilarious, with all of us cheering them on, of course.

A friend sent me this list, and it is absolutely hilarious. You don't have to be in the military to enjoy this one!
P.S. I hope this doesn't insult anyone, though there may be a thing or two in there that might. You have been warned.
