posting because i can

Bill O'Reilly is on the Daily Show right now. There's a lot of yelling, but the teddy bear and hot chocolate are cute.

I'm really sleepy. I actually almost fell asleep at work today. I got a lot done during the times I wasn't nodding off.

Cassie is acting weirder than normal. Last night she jumped on our bed at least four times. Every time someone moved she leapt off again. I think it's because she was never allowed on the bed before, so she thinks she's jumping off so as not to get caught. Monkeys debated putting her on the bed to try to teach her that it is okay for her to be there now... but I don't think she's bright enough to understand. She also has not gotten in my lap since we lost Artemis. I'm not sure what that means. I actually had a dream that we lost Artemis. She got outside, and I kept searching and searching for her but couldn't find her. We got sympathy cards from the Emergency Vet Clinic and from Southside Animal Hospital. How sweet is that? I wrote them thank you cards on Monday, but now I want to revise them and say more thanks.

Tuesday and Wednesday my back went bonkers. I think it was from sitting wrong on the couch and being really tense. Whatever, it's still lying on the bed or floor crying and wondering what I did karmically to deserve this. I almost missed Catechism on Tuesday because of it, but managed to recover in time. Last night, however, I was out of it all night. Today I appear to have worked through it, as my back is only hurting a little bit tonight. So I'm catching up on FB and LJ. Oh, and have I mentioned I like the smell of Icy Hot. :) I left it in my car and it melted. It still works, though.

Now, off to bed. I think I will sleep well tonight.

Cassie will be okay eventually. She might change a little, but she'll be ok after a while.

Honey... you didn't do anything wrong to deserve this.... it's just the way life rolls out sometimes.

You are right. Guess it's just a down spell. Cassie slept on the bed most of the night last night, so that was nice. :)

How are you doing? How's your back? You haven't mentioned yours in a while.

I'm doing okay. My back has been a LOT better sense leaving the Castle. I've been getting a lot of things done around the house. That's nice.

GOOD! Maybe because you are doing less standing? I know if I do a lot of standing (like when I'm doing mass amounts of cooking - yeah, I know, when does MLR ever do mass amounts of cooking...) it increases the chances of my back being sore.

OH - I'm putting all my CDs onto a hard drive so that I don't have to keep the CDs around. I just found a song by Jellyfish called Calling Sarah. :) Now you won't have to endure me launching into Jefferson Starship anymore! :)

Once upon a time I wanted to make a whole cd with just Sarah songs..... turns out there are a LOT of them.

A cd of Sarah sounds would still be cool however.

back problems are the worst
mine started when i was 12 ..... and every time i'd complain about it cause it was agonizing people would just say "oh you're too young for that ... pull yourself together", including stupid ass doctors who'd x-ray for breakage but not misalignment

educated retards!

but at least all of us who deal with back pain .... are mentally stable!?
or am i assuming too much here :D

ummmmmmmmmmmmm, yeah. I think that's assuming a bit too much.
but i like our unstableness. it's the fun, cool kind!

I know how you feel!
I've been doing things that I think might help my karma a little bit.
However, i still got that dumb ass ticket, and yesterday someone left a huge black gash in the side of the azteck. *SIGH*
They must have done it trying to get into the parking spot next to me. No note, no "I'm sorry" no nuthin. Just a gash and run.

I need a margarita!! You got plans tonight already??

I'm sending you this.

So sorry about the gash in the Aztec! That's horrible. :(
I have a couple of dents in mine, and I think I figured out who did it based on other cars at the office, but I didn't want to confront anyone. I just grumped in the general direction of the car and made symbolic fist shaking doom mongering when no one was looking.

Wonder if there is such a thing as karma realignment? Like a chiropractor for karma. A Karmopractor. :)

Oh well, life is a series of troughs and valleys, right? Wait, that's two kinds of low points. What's the up part called? Peak? Peaks and troughs. :)

Hehe. I like the comment about troughs and vallies.
That's sure what it feels like right now!

And yeah, I think the world needs a Karmaopracter... There are a few people I know right now who have done some pretty crappy things, but are having the time of their lives. Grrrr!!
Life isn't fair. *HUMPHF!*

Oh, and did you know that The Lost Boys are going to be at LARF? Who knew! The lineup has String, Nash, Will and and the onstage debut of Sven SvenBjørnjensenjensen... I have no idea who Will and Sven are. Should be interesting!

NASH!!!! Wooot! I love him. :) I wanna hear all about that!

Oh! And I found out who Sven Bjorkenflorfennorfinmorphinschlagerdude is.
It's Adam! Our karaoke mud pit guy. =o)

I still don't know the other guy though. Lucas says it's possible we've seen him before at GARF, but I can't picture the guy.

you really should confront whoever is putting freakin dents in your car
that's just rude and asshole thing to do (sorry about the language that shit just pisses me off!)

if you know who it is tell me and i'll take care of it :D
symbolic fist shaking doom mongering may not be enough!
"ve haff weyz of making zem apologize for zer misztakez"

all kidding aside there are people who balance your "chi" (force, spiritual energy, and whatever hocus pocus you wanna call it!)

key is ..... do you have to be open to it ... and be willing to understand it
i had it done a few times ... it actually helped .... not sure if it was "power of suggestion" but even if it's just that .... who cares if it works :D

also, you'll find these "chiropractors" in hippy stores ... you know those people who will try to sell you incense and pipes :D

See, I need a karmapractor for the entire WORLD. Not just to realign *my* karma. (Though that would be good too.)

tell me about ... i've been sluggish all day ... could be from the lack of sleep last night or the gloomy weather today .... or just the stress that came crashing down this week!

kaylee's been a great help and really sweet in the last few days
she's also a little unsure about being in the rest of the house since she wasn't allowed in certain rooms .... and now she's the bitch of the castle!

she always "tip toes" around certain parts of the house like she's still not sure she should be in a certain spot .... and everything is sorta new to her

my neck has been PULSING from pain and aggravation .... not to mention the stomach knots and discomfort since wednesday night (great line from planet terror: ... "fucking wednesday nights!")

so yes we're both suffering from spinal pains ... but stress will do that to you .... sometimes you don't even realize you're stressing but your brain tells your spine to freak out ..... it sucks how that work .... one would think someone from microsoft created the design for our spine/nervous system .... so inefficient!

redd's been going to the chiro and that's helping her a lot
glad sarah2AK is doing much better now .... i know some people will tell you that all this "chiropractor" business is garbage .... but for some it really works .... beats taking drugs that'll give you ""anal leakage" (robin williams joke)
:D

Microspine!
Cassie's been like that, too! It's been funny to watch. She's timidly going into places she knows she's "not supposed to be in" then skittishly running away when we appear, even though now we wouldn't kick her out. Before it was just for Artemis's peace of mind, not so much that we didn't want her in the bedroom. And we don't care if she goes outside or gets stuck in the garage (serves her right!) so we've been leaving doors open a lot more.

But I am having to fight doing the comparison thing. Like when Cassie gets on the bed, I want her to lie on me the way Aretmis did and I want her to want to be petted. She never did it before, so I shouldn't expect her to do it now, but I miss it! I want a pettable kitty! I'm hoping that maybe as she gets used to being up there she'll get more cuddly.

I hope your neck feels better! Crazy how stressful this is. Love hurts sometimes. I'm convinced about the benefits of chiro :) I just have trouble getting to one. I'm the same way with doctors in general. Are you going to be able to get to one soon? I want you feeling better, too!
