Liebermann is out.
My guinea pin YinYang thinks she is in Heaven.
Actually she's in a store-brand Cheerios box.
I'm pretty notorious for not knowing when somebody is flirting with me or interested, and today it got worse because I realized my GUINEA PIGS were flirting with me and I didn't notice. All week long I've been having lots of lap time with them, esp. Abbie the huge one, and rubbing and petting her back, I'd get her doing this "brrr-rrr-rrrr" sound. Stupid me thought it was the same as that rumble noise they make when they're defensive. But no, tonight with Caleb there we discovered this is her super SUPER happy/aroused noise. We got going on rubbing her and she was lying on her side purring in ecstacy. And all week long, every time she made that noise I'd STOPPED because I thought she was saying "Don't touch me." But turns out she was actually totally relaxed and fine. Never seen her so cuddling and squeaky as tonight. Anyway, there you see I can't even "read" small rather stupid animals! LOL
Meanwhile YinYang, who's supposed to have her baby any day, seems to be getting bigger and bigger but not slowing down at all. She's much quicker than Abbie and very frisky. Sitting in my lap she tend to turn and hop a lot, sniff the air, and "taste" my fingers. On the food front, she definitely outpaces Abbie. I put half a carrot in front of her during a TV show and in 1/2 hour it was gone. She inhales parsley and spinach. She eats really well!
Speaking of eating well, esp. eating of spinach, today at the allergist I got a talking to from my doctor about my anemia. I mentioned how it sucks I've had a bleeding nose for weeks because I'm anemic anyway, makes me worse. Then she asked if I was doing anything about that, I said no, I stopped taking the pills, because even when I take them my iron level barely goes up. So she got on me about going to see my GP about it. I told her he'd just nod and prescribe iron pills per usual. She said he wouldn't but I think he would. Man, I wish I could just AWAY from that. I wonder if it's really so important?! Every time I focus on this problem I end up having to take those pills (which are really hard to get out of the tinfoil) and told to eat iron-rich foods along with a mix of Vitamin C for absorption -- and to not have calcium at the same time. I hate any dietary restriction things like that... (I'd make a horrible diabetic I'm sure, Jess.) The ONLY reason I would like to get rid of this anemia is so I can get back to donating blood again -- I've been tossed out the last 4 times for being at 30 or 31 when the minimum level is like 38 or something :(
