I have a Manx-mix foster named Patch. She's freaking adorable. Only been on the market less than a week and already has two adoption applications.

Y'all are sorta making me want a cat. It won't happen because Calvin wants to eat all the kittehs, but I'm starting to like them more.

Totally cheated and got take-out for dinner tonight and now I feel guilty. Ugh.

Neighbor brought over petit fours she bought today. What a nice dessert to have tiny little cake bites.

I'm on "countdown to company getting here" freak out mode right now. I've got a list of things made out to do this weekend and it's kind of short so what the heck am I forgetting?

Stupid take-out, I should have cooked.

Totally out of milk, what the heck kind of breakfast can I made tomorrow without milk! No pancakes. No waffles. No smile.

Spring1onEwe,
You got any yogurt or sour cream? You can use some with water in the place of milk. yum!! It adds a great taste and makes the texture smoother too with waffles or pancakes.

Are you sure he's trying to eat them and not give them a kiss with his epiglottis?

Speckles, good idea! I've got some vanilla yogurt, I think.

RCC, I once caught him with his head shoved into a box with kittens in it and he was roughly nudging them. I don't want to think what he would have tried doing if I hadn't realized he was missing and being way too quiet. lol

When we're with him and he sees a cat he FREAKS OUT. If we're not there and he's in a house with cats he's just fine, has even slept in the same bed with them. I only realized this because a friend of mine used to dog sit him for us and she had cats.

That's so odd. Maybe he thinks it's his job to hunt cats for you.

You know what shouldn't be so hard? Finding a hair dryer! I wish I could plug them in before leaving the store so I could find the right one, this is ridiculous...I'm about to return dryer #2 and I start the search over again.

First one was so ear splitting loud I couldn't leave it on for more than a few seconds. Back in the box it went.

Second one practically blew my hair right off my head with the diffuser on! It was ridiculously loud as well. Back in the box it went.

What will try #3 bring me?

Bridesmaids is the most overrated movie of all time.
Talk about hate-watching.

I have a Conair one which is fairly quiet. I haven't used it in ages though

Maybe you can look up some reviews before giving it a try.

Or better yet:

Thank you, kayb!

The one I'm using now is fairly quiet and came with a diffuser, but I've had it for quite a while and I'd rather go ahead and find a new one before it goes out. Plus I'd like to put this one in our guest bath so folks don't have to pack one if they don't want to. It seems my current dryer takes for-evah to dry my hair (and I dry every single day) and I was hoping maybe a different one would help in that area a little. We have company coming in next weekend so that sort of spurred this whole search.

I've been awake most of the night with the worst abdominal pain ever. I even phone NHS Direct it was that bad. The doctor said to rest and take painkillers and if it's no better this morning phone back.

I'm beginning to think it was an ovarian cyst. It was worse pain than slipping a disc in my back. And there I was thinking it was because I had to go back to work on Monday.

I've now signed up for Pottermore! Of course I did it at this hour, have we met? The process of getting sorted and junk has been really fun since I've been IMing with a friend through it. We've talked about how we'll be cantankerous old ladies together, though she's going to have to take on both our crazy cat lady duties because I'm allergic, and IMO, our wands totally work with us there. Hers is ash with a unicorn core, unyielding. Ash and unicorn are both super loyal and shun other owners, and it's unyielding so it's good for whacking naughty neighbor kids. Mine is hazel with a dragon core, slightly springy. While it's less suited to child-smacking, hazel is so loyal to its original owner that it often "wilts" (expels its magic) when that owner dies. I can refuse to share my precious even in death!

Hazel is closely tied to its owner's emotions, so when I'm mad at you, so is my wand? Approved. I also sort of like the idea that fictional me gets a wand that empathizes with her. It would be my little inanimate-yet-sentient friend - I might even cuddle it. Dragon produces the most powerful, flamboyant spells and learns to do them quickest. Also approved. It amuses me that the core's most prone to accidents due to these things, because it would probably amplify the "Oh crap, don't let WS fix your glasses, she's having a bad day!" effect from the hazel. Also, it's the easiest to turn to the dark arts. Mwahahahahaha!

That suits the fact that my friend is a Slytherin - if need be, I can join the dark side to have some illicit adventures with her. I can always have a change of heart later, right? I'm clearly brave enough to handle the fluctuations in public opinion, because I got placed in Gryffindor. I was flummoxed. I was so certain I would end up in Ravenclaw! My friend was like "WHAAA??" because what even prompted me to do this was her and her sister agreeing that I would be a Ravenclaw if Hogwarts were real. I told her that I got Hermione'd: I'm such a Ravenclaw it's not even funny, yet I got sorted into Gryffindor.

We have decided that our sorting feeds into our master plan to take over the world together. We can't be in the same house if we're megalomaniacs, because that might hurt our friendship. (You can't split up a house as easily as you can an entire planet.) So she'll be in Slytherin learning to feed her ambition and rising through their cunning ranks, and I'll be in Gryffindor winning the hearts of the bravest of the brave to serve as our minions. Our demonstrated intelligence will draw the Ravenclaws to us, and we will obtain the unwavering loyalty of Hufflepuff House by pointing out that being represented by the colors of a bumblebee and having a badger for a mascot clearly makes them honeybadgers. Personal army assembled! The world is ours!!

First royal decree: grilled cheese sandwiches for everyone! I'd've had one for every meal yesterday if we had bread in the house.

Watch this interview. It is painfully funny.

Boo, link isn't working. Here's the transcript:

Quote:
Anchor David Nelson: "What is your message to voters?"

Ann Romney: "My message, really was, ‘women, I hear your voices,' and the interesting thing about this economy, this tough economy that we're going through, is that women have been hit the hardest. And I wanted to make sure that women of America knew that we have been across this country for the last year and a half and we are very aware of how tough it is for them.

They are juggling so many things, and I think all of us know that women work harder than anyone and that they hold down jobs, they are raising the kids, they're trying to get food on the table and everything else and they're really being stretched and my message was really for women and it's saying ‘trust my husband, he does not fail he will not fail' and he is going to work harder than anyone to make sure that your economic prosperity and your future will be more sound with him."

Anchor David Nelson: "Here in Iowa, as you know, same-sex marriage is legal. Do you believe a lesbian mother should be allowed to marry her partner?"

Ann Romney: "You know, I'm not going to talk about the specific issues. I'm going to let my husband speak on issues. I'm here to really just talk about my husband and what kind of husband and father he is and, you know, those are hot-button issues that distract from what the real voting issue is going to be at this election. That, it's going to be about the economy and jobs.

And, frankly, the President said four years ago that if he doesn't turn this economy around he's going to be looking at a one-term presidency. And I frankly believe that Mitt is the person that is so going to be focused on jobs and job creation and making sure that women's economic prosperity is more certain and by the way their children's future is because as we all know we're facing this debt crisis. Sometime, somewhere, somehow someone's going to have to pay off these debts, and it's going to be our children. And we have to, it's getting to be a desperate situation. We will be looking at a Greece-like situation or a Spain situation if we don't address these issues very quickly."

Anchor David Nelson: "Do you believe that employer-provided health insurance should be required to cover birth control?"

Ann Romney: "Again, you're asking me questions that are not about what this election is going to be about. This election is going to be about the economy and jobs."

Anchor David Nelson: "Well, a Pew Research poll shows those issues are very important to women, ranking them either "important" or "very important."

Ann Romney: "You know, but I personally believe, and this is what I'm hearing from women all across the country that they are going to look for the guy that's going to pull them out of the weeds and get them job security and a brighter future for their children. That's the message.

Listen, I've been across this country, I've been for a year-and-a-half on the campaign trail. I've spoken with thousands of women and they are telling me, they're telling me a couple of things, one they say they're praying for me which is really wonderful, and then they're saying, ‘please help, please help. We are so worried about our jobs.'

So really if you want to try to pull me off of the other messages it's not going to work because I know because I've been out there."

Anchor David Nelson: "Well, I don't want to pull you off any message. You just told a reporter who was questioning you in Cleveland that you want women to have a secure and stable future. I asked you about marriage and whether lesbian mothers should be allowed to marry. Isn't marriage a part of creating a stable future?"

Ann Romney: "You know, again, I'm going to talk to you about the economy and about job creation and about how my husband is the right person for the right time. This is going to be an election that is very important for women, and we are going to make sure that their economic prosperity is more certain under a President Romney."

Alright face, after much work and misery, I've gotten you mostly clear once again. Not looking great, but at least clear. Don't **** it up!
