aisforamy: december 2011 (beaker is watching you)
I don't care what the calender says--when it is close to 100F outside, it is summer. I know it's summer, because the fatigue is already kicking in, as happens to me when the temperatures go up. In the winter, I often take a diet pill in the late morning to keep me going and awake, and STILL need a nap in the afternoon. In the summer, I can take TWO diet pills, and still need a nap an hour later. Anyway--if I am seeming flaky or lazy, it's probably just the TIRED taking over.

Stupid Multiple Sclerosis.

For those of you who play at Chaos Cube: Insane Journal is down, and may be down for a day or two more. Some idiot at their server hosting company deleted their servers or something. Being the most technically challenged person in the known universe, that is about as well as I can explain it. Yes, it should be back up ASAP, and our game should be able to continue on as before with no problems. ETA: Apparently someone is working feverishly, because they think it could be up within the hour!

My kitchen is a mess right now, and I will be devoting a portion of my day to scrubbing it down, hopefully. The pantry is all out of order and stuff, and I have the urge to empty it out and reorganize so I can FIND stuff. I also have several loads of laundry to do, as usual, and one of the ladies from church to visit. I am supposed to visit three a month, and forgot on Monday to visit the one, so my partner went alone. I've got one today and one tomorrow. We are only supposed to stay for about twenty minutes per person, but my partner tends to stay at each one for at least an hour, no matter how I try to hurry things along. I wouldn't mind so much, be she sets the appointments for right in the middle of the day, and it kind of throws the rest of my day off.

Also, while I am bitching about stuff: WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH WATERMELONS THIS YEAR??? I have bought several, and I know it is early in the season, but they have all been awful! The seedless ones have seeds, and the fruit has been really bland. I am disappointed.

That is all I can think of to complain about today. Have a fun link, for putting up with me:

and for those of you who do not go to school, I thought this was fabulous!

Only, I would be tempted to use it in ways not intended by the manufacturer...

I really haven't been updating much, other than silly memes or links. I have been busy now that the school year has started (I think I said this before), and will probably BE busy for the foreseeable future.

Today, I went to the school and sent out two separate flyers to parents about an upcoming PTO meeting and a Pizza Hut fund raising night, when we encourage everyone to clog their arteries in the name of better educational tools. I also went and visited one of the ladies from church I was supposed to, and mailed a shipment of cell phones to the recycling place for a fund raiser from last year. I set up four more fund raising events with restaurants for the next couple of months, as we try to have two per pizza, and one actual go-to-a-place-and-sit-down with a waitress and stuff kind of place. It's served us well in the past.

Tonight was Curriculum Night at the school, where parents came without their children to see the classrooms, and to get a good idea of what their children would be learning. It was nice to get the info and meet the teachers and stuff, even though I already know most of them. I signed up two new families for the PTO, and sold a couple of t-shirts, so that was nice, too!

Tomorrow is another insanely busy day, where I am going to go visit a woman from church, pick up Lai and do some running around, pick up the kids, take the turtle to the vet, hang out at home for a bit with Lai and maybe watch a movie, and at some point, go grocery shopping. Also? My tweezers have gone mysteriously missing, and I need to get another pair.

Robert also has his first cello lesson tomorrow, and he's really excited about it. The cello was delivered yesterday, and he just sat and admired it for a while. I hope he takes to it, because sometimes I worry that the poor boy takes after my father, who was tone deaf.

I also have about a bazillion loads of laundry to catch up on, but that is nothing new.

Not getting enough sleep, but have been having a great time with my RP, both at Milliways and at my new game over on GJ. PSSSST--why haven't you all joined yet? It's awesome!

And tonight me and Lai did the happydance, because I figured out how to put tags in the sidebar at the new game's main page, and Lai figured out how to make them show up in indiviual posts. Now all we have to do is find out why we can't edit entries at all, and we will be GOLDEN.

Other than that, life continues apace...things are good, if a little hectic. Hope everyone out there is doing well!

I agree with the one commenter...I want to see an episode of Robot Chicken with all of these in a single episode!

I applied for a seasonal/temporary job online tonight to work at Borders bookstore. I would love to have some extra money for Christmas, and if they can work with me on the hours, and schedule me for times my kids are in school and on weekends, it would be perfect.

I had to take a very long (37 pages! Seriously!) poll/quiz thing about my personality to make sure I wasn't a sociopath or maniac or something, but other than that it was fine.

I guess I should tell the people I have listed as personal references that I listed them, eh?

It would be nice to get a call back, but since I don't strictly NEED a job, I am not going to stress over it. (But wish me luck, all the same!)

That's pretty much it.

Return to your normal lives people!

PS - Did you know that Soylent green is PEOPLE?!?! It's true!

Caught the last of the wild cats living in our back yard. You may recall that the mother cat chased my dog around the yard one night, and so my husband flushed the cats out with the garden hose? Well, hey came back, and moved under the kids' playhouse. My husband borrowed a small animal trap, and lured a kitten out with some tuna, and took it out to farmer's field and let it go.

The mother was caught a few hours later, perhaps looking for her baby. She was taken (with much howling, hissing and growling) to another field and let go. The three remaining kittens disappeared for a couple of days, before showing up back in the original hole under the shed. I took them out some water, but didn't feed them--they were SO thirsty, the poor things. My husband set the trap again, and caught one within two minutes, and the remaining two in one shot about twenty minutes later. They were released together at a corporate park that has a little pond and lots of little bushes and trees in clusters where they can chase bugs and lizards and mice for food.

The reason (in case you are wondering) we didn't take them to the Humane Society is because they were feral cats, and therefore, unadoptable. We thought it preferable to let them go, than to have them put to sleep. Also, the shelters are so overrun, that most are not accepting new animals right now. Sad, but true.

Anyway, not much new has happened to me in the past few days. I took the kids to the zoo yesterday to play in the water playground there, and did some yardwork this morning. Tonight will be spent cleaning the turtle tank, which gets dirty a lot faster with a third turtle added to the mix. Still haven't taken pics, but will get around to it, soon.

If any of you are interested in reading the newest issue of the Fables comic (which I always recommend, because it's fabulous), drop me a comment here, and I will send you the links to the scans I made of it.

And, because I haven't had one for quite a while, I give you a LINK OF THE DAY! (Gasp!)
