(I need a better angry icon)

People do not teach their children boundaries these days. For example, by the time I seven or eight I knew not to go crawl up in the bushes in front my neighbor's house, peek into the window, and make scratching noises and hiss at the cat in the window. The little shits in my neighborhood, however, can't seem to grasp the concept that doing that is wrong. I'd go out there and give the little bastards a piece of my mind if I wasn't sick and in my pj's.

I guess I shouldn't have expected manners from the brats considering how, a year or so ago, they thought it would be fun to randomly open the front door and let the cats outside. It was unlocked because it was daylight and my dad and I were both home. That, of course, does not happen anymore; the front door is locked and/or barred at all times now. As it should be, honestly.

Maybe it's because the kids on the cul-de-sac I live in are mostly boys. (There are a few girls and I haven't had any problems with them.) I don't know. I do know that if it happens again, I'm going to scare the crap out of 'em. And if their parents say anything to me, well, I'll just tell them they should teach their kids not to peep into other people's windows.

Swine Flu...

Mom has H1N1. I'm worried about her, which translates to hovering. I hope I'm being helpful.

Also, watching General Hospital. Olivia/Johnny is the worst thing ever on daytime TV. (Even though it's 9pm...SOAPNet shows daytime soaps at night for those of us missed them during the day. Mom and I were watching Dark Shadows.) Then again Nikolas/Elizabeth is pretty damn awful, as well.

Weddings and Whatnot

My best friend (Jessie) is getting married on Sunday! I'm so excited for her, I think I just might burst! XD They're just doing a Justice of the Peace thing right now and big wedding later after David (her fiancé) gets done with basic training and all that (he's going into the Air Force, I think).

In other, less joyous news, Faylinn had the last of her heartworm shots today. She still has to stay in her cage and have restricted activity for about another month, so we're not out of the woods just yet (hence the "less joyous" part).

[insert witty subject line here]

There's some expensive shit going on with the air conditioner coil thingy and the furnace in my house. I don't even really understand it--except that it's been leaking into the ceiling of my bathroom (which sucks) and totally ruining the ceiling (big honkin' mold/water damage ring around the vent). The heat and air guys are here replacing the coil (and wtf is the coil, btw? I am so clueless on this) and the furnace as I type. Which, really, is very awesome of them because it's still crazy hot/humid outside right now--especially so to be working up in the attic, where there's no air conditioning.

In other news, Faylinn has heart worms. We didn't know that when we got her, not that it would have changed anything; we just would have gotten her treatment sooner. She's not on the actual medication to get rid of the worms, but she is on antibiotics (and pain pills). We're having to keep her locked up, which I don't think she likes, but is tolerating it pretty well. We also have to keep her on a leash whenever she's out of the cage. This means I'm on puppy-poo/pee duty all day (I've been taking her out every few hours). I hate that she's so restricted in everything, but we have to do it or she'll die. She could have a heart attack, or a clump of dead heart worms could break off and get into her blood stream and make its way to her lungs and cause an embolism.

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3

As the subject says, this is a test. I'm checking to see how cross-posting from my dreamwidth to both my lj and my ij goes. So...Testing.

Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah )

(And now I'm wondering if I can "cross-edit" as well...Ah, we'll see.)

Edit2: Also, SUCCESS! Cross-editing works!

    The Good:
  • I have a new tattoo! That's six (well, technically, five-and-a-half because this one is to cover up a crappy, $20 tattoo that I got about three or four years ago).
  • I'm 23! (My b-day was this past Saturday.)
  • I had a great b-day!

    The Bad:
  • I've still got a cold.
  • My ankle is ridiculously swollen from the tattoo (it's located just above my ankle and the tendons and muscles are all stressed--for some reason, I have no idea why, tattoos tend to stress the muscles they're on when you first get them), from walking around downtown Little Rock after getting said tattoo Saturday night, and then from walking around Wal-Mart yesterday for a few hours. All made possible because it didn't heal right when I sprained it back in December.
  • I'm having to skip yoga tonight because of the swollen ankle.
  • Faylinn has heart worms. But we're taking care of her (getting her healthier and ready to take the treatments).

    The Ugly:
  • Nothing! My tattoo is so gorgeous it cancels out the swollen ankle.

Pretty tattoo )

I lost five pounds. And the scale isn't broken (I checked). I'm the happy kind of shocked. Now, I just need to figure out what I've done different in the last month or so that made me lose said five pounds...(Did I mention I lost five pounds and I wasn't even trying? 'Cause that's the confusing part...)

My dad has a blood clot in his right leg (in the calf area). He went to the doctor's office Monday (after having pain and swelling in the area where the clot is for four days). The doctor said that he probably had a blood clot and should go to the hospital. The doctor at the hospital confirmed the blood clot and had him stay overnight for observation and to get set up on his meds. We got to bring him home last night.

So, today is his first day back at home (not that he was gone that long) and he's going to be off work for about the next ten or so days. I'm having to take care of him today. *sigh*

RPatz...(Yeah, I called him that)

I know this video is over a month old, but my friend from out of town (that is, she generally resides out of town, where she attends SCAD, but I actually know her from high school) is in town now and hasn't read the Twilight books. So, she asks me about them (after I've asked her if she's read them, because we have similar taste in books and movies). As I was describing the series (mentioning, of course, the rumored can this really still be considered a spoiler? )) I mentioned this video. And she wanted to see it. (I found this in ohnotheydidnt on lj.)

I thought I'd post it here if I ever wanted to watch it again (you know, for teh lulz).

Still Injured...

My whole foot is swollen. From my heel to my toes, the damn thing is swollen. Which is really annoying. I've been keeping it bound (with an ace bandage instead of that circulation-eliminating elastic strap the doctor gave me...I'd like to keep my toes, thanks) and elevated, icing it and taking the anti-inflammatories (and the pain pills). But it's still swollen--more so than it was when I actually sprained it. Also, parts of it are turning that deep, black-ish purple serious bruise color while others are just blue and a few others are just red. Have I mentioned I find this very annoying?

On the upside, I've been able to eliminate one of the crutches (which probably has something to do with the extra swelling, I know...). Also, pain pills. I'm very happy to have those. They make the hobbling around (and after-effects of hobbling around) manageable.

In other news, we have a Christmas tree! It's all pretty and decorated. But I didn't get to decorate it (*pouts*) because of the sprained ankle. So far, the pets have been good and haven't knocked over the tree. I mean, they've been chewing on the lower (empty) branches, which we discourage, but nothing else. Here's hoping that pattern holds.
