I have just spent at least 2 hours mucking about on the computer, first added picnik premium, cause for the love of Pete, I needed that like I need a hole in my head. Then I jaunted over to moo to get some moo cards. Spent a gazillion minutes picking photos, etc. only to decide I didn’t really need to spend $20.00 on that. So, next I decide that maybe I’ll order some photo Christmas cards – back and forth checking out different sites, choosing designs, blah, blah, blah – only to decide that I may be too d.a.m.n. cheap for that too. Honestly do I really want to spend around $75.00 (not including postage) for Christmas cards? AAAAAGGGHHH – stick sharpened bamboo skewers under my fingernails, or poke my eyes out with a rusty nail, it would be equal to the time I’ve wasted this morning. Not to mention (but of course I will) this weekend I have been messing around with an aquarium filter that isn’t working right. The fish are hanging around the surface of the water probably thinking oxygen in the air is more available to them than oxygen in the water. Nate startled the 10 inch plecostomus right out of the water yesterday. Brian had to put the slimy fish back in the slimy aquarium, and the whole thing gave me the heebie jeebies! Licorice has been hacking up big piles of partially digested mice – stuff that could be put to use as special effects in a gory horror movie. And neither of the d.a.m.n. cats can seem to catch the one mouse that is leaving chocolate sprinkles in my cupboards. Wow, I guess my feelings of gratitude have worn off! It’s probably too late to say that we had a lovely Thanksgiving.
Well we did! Ate some good food, played a few games, took a walkabout out in a field, slept in, helped my niece pester her parents for a rat for Christmas. I want to share that love of pets with everyone (Bwahahahaha!) (sidenote: Tiger the rat ate through the cord to the computer keyboard a few weeks ago.) Maybe it’s all the butter, gravy, cranberry sauce and pie coursing through my bloodstream that has me all bent out of shape. Going now to cleanse my mind and body with a cup of hot tea. Promise a better attitude tomorrow!
