So, I spoil my cats. Yes, I know, crazy cat lady thing. And even though technically Jeffrey is my daughters cats, he spends more time with me and I look at him as mine as well.
So, I indulged the new baby, BaxterMarie, and my grandbabykitty Jeffrey with new presents for each.
Now, at first, Jeffrey was content to just chill and sleep in his.
BaxterMarie had other ideas, however. She kept pouncing on his and
smooshing the side in. She was more interested in the fins and stuff.
But now, as you can see, she is sleeping snuggly warm in hers.
The two cats are getting closer day by day. It was a big break
through when Jeffrey finally let BaxterMarie cuddle with him for a nap.
Today, for the first time, he groomed her. Oh, she didnt like it one
bit, because Jeffrey seems to have a fascination with her little feets.
He put her in a strangle hold and was like ‘look here, you lil snot, you
must smell like me…I shall bathe you and you will like it!’. It was
funny to watch.
They are currently over at my laptop desk in the chair fighting. I
hear BaxterMarie give a little squeak every once in awhile and have to
tell Jeffrey to be gentle. He backs off and minds me well. He’s a good
And BaxterMarie is just a little darling. More often than not she is
right here on my desk cuddled against me. And when not cuddling, she is
playing with her multitude of toys. I had given the cats most of
ChesterAnn’s (Fat Cat) toys. They each have their favorites.
On another note, its Thanksgiving here in the US and I dont care. I
mean, not to be ugly or anything, but I’m just not a big holiday sort. I
try to do something nice for Christmas only for the sake of my
daughter,and this year, I am not bothering with the tree or anything. I
got her a few gifts already, and that will be that.
Other news…I have a horrific cold. I know it was brought about by the
weather. It was nice here, 80’s, then it dropped down into the 40’s,
then it rained and got humid again, and now the temps are back up. The
moisture in the air has probably been playing havoc with my lungs, and
you all know I have COPD. Blah. So, I am extremely tired and trying to
stay on top of things with cold meds and whatnot, while also not laying
down much to keep the fluid from settling and building in my lungs.
NaNoWriMo is winding down. I have REALLY enjoyed being a Municipal
Liaison. I will do it next year, and years to come, hopefully. My word
counts have been good and steady and I’m still not finished with
everything I want to write. I will admit I have been working my book
like a movie is filmed…out of sequence. When I have a great idea for a
particilar chapter, I work on it and perfect it, getting it down while
its fresh in my head, then doing a completely different thing when it
In the gaming world, things are as depressing as ever. No one to
write with. And I tried to use one of my old characters to do a little
train of thought type of thing on the situation of the ‘city’ and its
inhabitants from her perspective. I was trolled majorly bad, or, well,
my character was…it still doesnt make you feel worth a damn.
I got my new laptop in, thanks to my mommy. I unboxed it, but have
yet to set it up and turn it on to get things how I want them. I am just
too tired and have no drive.
I know the girls at the coffee shop will be glad to see me on a more
regular basis once again. They are always asking why I dont come in to
My old laptop isnt completely dead, its still good for some things.
It lasted me a good while, and I put it through some abuse. Its just
obsolete now. And even with a new battery, it wont hold a charge. It
always has to be plugged in and that is a major inconvenience.
Especially for using MSWord. It seems to drain my battery life
But, that will be a thing of the past now, with the shiny new laptop. And I will take extra special care of it.
My next major purchase will be a new computer. Just the tower. I have
a great monitor set-up, great keyboard and mouse, great webcam. And I
can strip the blu-ray player from this tower to put in a new one. I am
really good about making use of things.
I think, however, that this desktop is going to last me a good while
longer. Everything on it works great. I just replaced the video card and
put in a new hard drive, and added the max RAM, so its fast and smooth.
Its just a little…ugly…lol. No, not really. It still looks sleek and
all, you can just tell its an older model. I’ve had it over 6 years now.
Well, I’m just a chatty Cathy today, arent I? You’ve fallen asleep,
havent you? If not, you are now lulled into a nice mood to take a nap. :P
Happy Food Coma day to all you US folk.
