Wake-up call

Nothing like being woken up from a sound sleep by an 8:15 business phone call. This woman tried calling me 2 other times before 9 but remarkably both times I was actually out and about. Anyway, thankfully I am well able to fake being awake, no groggy voice or confusion from me, but as soon as I hung up I just stayed in bed going, "Why?"

I did finally get up as a result and was out running errands by 9:30. Mailed 8 copies of the Wraeththu picture book and got some coffee. Today I should be able to get a lot of work done. I'm also going to clean up the main room, since I offered to make a big stuffed manicotti dinner tonight and Caleb (or anybody else) would be horrified at the state of things in the room at the moment.

OK, pity party

I feel excedingly shitty today.

The tiredness is as issue as usual -- I could go to sleep in a second, but have kept awake -- but in addition, I now have a sore throat that's making me cough. At my appt. today, I told the allergist about it and she said not to worry unless it lasts over two days, then get some medication. Hopefully it will get better quick because I'm going away in just over a week.

The other issue is after-effects of yesterday. Know when you exercise and feel great, but then the next day the PAIN hits? I felt awesome walking all those dogs, but now my legs are so sore, I found it hard to sit down or get up on MARTA! I feel like I'm some 90-year-old woman. Ow, ow, ow! My knees are killing me, all pink and sore from kneeling and also wrestling some dogs to get them into their collars. My hands are also killing me, from holding on to leashes of dogs. If you've ever had to hold back a dog that wants to GO NOW, imagine doing several of them in a day. The worst was Wolverine, whose leash I had to loop into a harness so I could control him.

I could really use a nap now but I have to finish cleaning the main room and then at 6 start dinner.

(no subject)

I'm listening to NPR right now... or I *was*, until they had on Dubya being all irate about people assusing his Administration of pulling the wool over people's eyes. Have to turn it off because I can't listen to that turd. Such a TURD of a president. I hope he's off the air soon so I can listen to less offensive news. Which would be pretty much anything...

Moving the Cage

I moved my birds' cage and boy do they like it. I like it, too. It might stay there. They've been in the same room for four years, on a long but overly narrow table by a window, and lately there've been problems with that, chiefly the fact my almost-grown cat has in the past three months twice knocked the cage over. I've clamped all the joints in the cage, plus the doors, so they didn't fly out either time and they weren't injured, but it was a huge mess and makes me worry all the time over the cat. She didn't crash the cage on purpose; it was just set so precariously on that little table. The location of the table is also right by a huge uninsulated window and last night I worried it would be too cold for Pell and Cal. Thus, their new location across the room. Now they have a very stable table that they're not going to get shoved off of. It's also a table the cat isn't allowed on anyway -- and she knows it. They're still near a window, but further away so they won't get the same radiant chill. I think that area of the room is also a lot calmer than the other location, since that was right at the entrance to the more private half of the apartment, so I'm always constantly going by them and making them nervous. Now they have more of a quiet spot and only have to deal with me coming close if I'm at the table or getting something from the "pet cabinet" in the corner. Anyway, I'll see how it goes and if they like it and avoid further harassment from the kitty, they'll stay there. When I need table room they can go back to their own spot temporarily.

Cheesecake??????

Poll #615137 Cheesecake

A few years ago my friend Kristina and I did a "cheesecake" photo shoot, copying poses and outfits in a vintage cheesecake book I have. I still have them in digital. They are pretty kinky but only a few are really showing real nudity. Would people enjoy seeing them? The posts will be friends-locked and behind a cut (duh).

Oh, YEAH, bring it on!
10(83.3%)
Yes, but only post the clean ones!
2(16.7%)
Not sure. Maybe I won't click on the link.
0(0.0%)
No, I don't want to see it! (Or other reason.)
0(0.0%)
No, I want real porn of you and Kristina, not "cheesecake."
