Yoko's foot is doing great, and the past two days I've allowed her free run of the backyard for the first time since her accident. She's not gonna be happy with me though, I GOT HER BOOTIES!!! LOL, the ground gets so hot even now when we haven't hit summer temps that I didn't resist getting her booties to take her for walks when it starts to get dark. Texas heat sucks and she's going to give pitiful looks for some time to come but she needs to loose some pounds and I need to start walking at least a few miles a couple times a week now that I don't have my racquetball class to exercise.
Work is getting beyond hectic. We found out which one of my kinders has been peeing all over the bathroom and he got busted good. The custodian had just cleaned the boy's bathroom in the cafeteria and he was the first one in and he even dropped poop on the floor. oi. Also this week on Thursday is our water field day, and for the next few days to come I'll be filling water balloons in a cooler for work. 1-5th will have massive water balloon fights, my kinders will be paying in a sprinkler set.
I'm currently waiting for it to cool down in about 5 hours to go clean out my car. Till then I'm doing laundry and the normal lazy cleaning (when I should really be overhaul cleaning).
-head hits desk-
Am I going to have to switch vets that I use to order meds now?
I go there as is for single does of their heartworm and flea protects every month, I can't afford to get a six month pack for them right now. That's like... almost $60. Isn't my $60 to them that way enough? jeez. thanks dude.
Its just... so freaking annoying. If the meds weren't cheaper where I order them now I wouldn't be going it.
So I'm going to put Mika under house arrest, and see how she does. She'll sometimes walk on it, limping, other times hobble around on three legs. My housemate was a grouch yestrday when I told her not to let her out, but she saw me looking over Mika's leg over again while the dogs were outside and showed concern. I don't want to have to use my first full paycheck for this school year on my cat! I have so many other expenses right now. Oi. That's why I'm waiting and going to see how she does over the weekend. I don't feel anything broken, she's just not liking me touching it, but not realing in pain.
I actually woke up before my alarm today (YES!) thanks to Yoko who had to go outside for business and a Starbucks Frapuccino from the fridge. The key will to have a repeat tomorrow. I spent the morning fighting to stay away, check e-mail, and be a normal lazy college student, with the exception of not being asleep.
So eventually I got ready, took care of the dogs, locked up, and went to the bus stop at the end of street. Why is this mentionable? My bus was actually on time! And my bus arrive at just the right moment for me to hop on another bus heading toward school instead of the normal 15 minute walk from my stop. It was already over 90 degrees so I got on the bus instead of getting exercise, lol. My city's bus system may be pathetic, but they are smart enough not to skimp on the Air Conditioning! Even with a full bus its usual very cool (that can't be said for other people's body odor sometimes).
Anyways, I get to campus and get in line at the admissions and records line to get my class schedule. What I find really messed up is when you walk in there is "Information Center" on the sign pointing down the hall but you can't find it... like it disappears after that, maybe its like Platform 9 and 3/4 and you got to know what wall to walk through to find it. So I get my class schedule, and head to the bookstore. They change the layout some what again... oi. With a few minutes being ignored I found the only book I need, my history book, and checked out. I had originally thought the time from arriving on campus to getting the book would take an extra half hour... it didn't and I walked to the campus radio station, KSYM 90.1, to meet up with my friend Patrick.
So I walk in and at first I thought there was a mistake, it looked empty. I hesitantly go into the office and then I see him through the studio door. I knock, having no clue but assuming I'm not allowed into the studio but he brings me in and I sit down. After a few times he goes on the air he comes up with the idea of me being a 'guest' from high school and putting me on the air. Its a while before he goes on again, and we're talking and I was going through bands. KSYM only plays Alternative music, so I start to list off artist I could remember (which is a miracle) and hit one that is. He goes to the library and pulls out the disks of Muse. I selected Knight of Cynodia, which I missed pronounced, on the air because I had no idea how to say it >.< Patrick found it funny and made a nice joke of it (glad to be of service :p ). So we're talking and he comes up with the idea again, he has to broadcast the current weather conditions before the end of his time on the air waves and drafts me into. I was to give the current and projected temps, so I said, "Hello again, its currently 97 at the KSYM studio with a projected high of 99." We bantered slightly on that and when he introduced the next song by a japanese artist.
Afterwards we went out for lunch and hung out before he drove me home considering I had taken the bus and we weren't anywhere near my route in the end of things. So it was an interesting and fun day, I'm thinking about going down to campus again but earlier to hang out with Patrick, even if I don't go on air again. The question if I wake up early and can get my butt in gear to get to campus, lol.
I went to the wash house, finally washed my blankets and jackets and that chore is over. So in all, I say a good day. At the moment Mika is being...
... Yoko is doing her best to ignore her and nap...
I swear my life everyday is nothing more than a kiddy coaster. Yesterday's highlight was one of the students gave me a Transformers book. -ghasph- Yep, a movie book on the autobots and decepticons. Nothing much but its got full front photos so I have great views of their details. The down note today is apparently my cat got in another fight, last one I think in Jan. Her ear is chewed up, again, I even think its the same one as last time. For being declawed and in a fight with that the only wound shows just how tough she is. She's not at all happy with me. I had to hold her by the scruff and clean it with one hand, sadly I'm well practice at this from dogs and cats. She is also under house arrest for the next three days , at least, so it will heal properly. She's going to howling in a few hours, I just know it.
She's bringing me 'gifts'. She didn't do that when I lived in North Texas!!!! At first it was a lizard, dead of course. I'm like, well shit, because I know cats do this sometimes. But what make me want to throw up is today when I was leaving the house I find another lizard and a song bird. Both long dead, EW. I am angry about the song bird, I think I'm going to have to 'try' to have a talk with my housemate about trying to keep her indoor all night till mid morning. Song birds are usually caught and killed in early morning hours when they're singing.
At the same time I can't be angry with my cat, she is a cat. And just goes to show how good of a hunter she is, she's declawed after all. And yet my brain automatically tries to figures how she caught and killed.... ::shudders:: >.<
I was getting the mail from yestrday and my cat walks up, meowing pitifully. I didn't think anything of it till she walked pasted me and I saw the back of her right ear. The fur is gone and there is a weird wound on it. Not a puncture mark from a fight or anything. Nothing else seems wrong so I'm baffled and angry. Sadly my city is fighting big time on animal cruelity. Its just now starting to make laws and had one cruelity investigator for the entire city. I don't know if someone hurt her or if she did something stupid. She's use to the country, not the city. Poor Mika, she's not even black from crying out loud.
