"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here" (413)813-7036
*happy dance* Chris's mom was looking at adoptable cats! ^_^
Serious question: Why don't we all have closet systems like Cher in Clueless?
Thinking about spending money on an app that's basically Polyvore for just your own clothing. I wish I was tech savvy enough to make what I want. Also, I wonder how expensive motorized closet racks are.... >.> - Heather
Bunatar: The Last Haybender
I'd watch that twice. - Steven Perez
So. Yeah. Just watched the Legend of Korra Book 4 trailer ( AND I CAN'T EVEN.
So not Complaining, but who gets a PT appointment less than 24 hours from calling?
Tried sleeping on the couch to help my shoulder. Now both shoulders hurt and my back is stabby. WTF body, I'm only 30!
Wait till you get to 40. It's more awesome. I guarantee. - Eric - It's My Thing
If it keeps up like this, I won't make it past 50. - Heather
I called my parents an hour ago. They didn't pick up. And haven't called back. WTF parents, are you having a life or something? #AdultChildrenProlems
op sorry my cats borrowed them, didn't they return them? - Sir Shuping is just sir
They went camping. x_x - Heather
Silly Heather didn't check the woods - Steve C Team Marina
Adventures in pie making.
I don't think I've been this relaxed making pie since the first few times I did it. Maybe baking alone with the radio is key. - Heather
Bunny will eat all the apple peels you give her. And your fingers if they smell like apple. - Heather
Disposable tins are waaaaaay shallower than my pie plate. Much spillage. So smoke. Wow burn-y-ness! - Heather
I swear this smoke alarm is a bastard. It went off, Chris took the batteries out and we aired out the house. It's chirping. He puts the batteries back in.... It's still chirping! *strangles smoke alarm. - Heather
I can't cook much, but damn can I bake a pie. - Heather
fire! - WarLord
Trying to get my eating habits regular is going to be impossible for the next 5 days. I have almost no appetite on prednisone. - Heather
Mr. 3 (nephew by proxy) came in the living room with the bunny out. He tried handing her a few toys and then "pet" her by poking her in the head. It was too cute.
Any able to explain this articles calculations? It's about birth control failure likelihood over time and it just doesn't seem right to me.

Ugh, iPad linking sucks :( - Heather
The older I get the more obsessed with my Finn heritage I get. Is that a thing?
You know, I swear it is. I've been way more interested in some of our family traditions now than I was as a kid. Part of that is tied to family actually talking about it, but some of it just realizing as I get older that I wish I knew a bit more. - Jennifer Dittrich
My current thing is wanting to learn to play the Kantele. It's a string instrument with 5-38 strings (I think I'd stick with 5 strings). So pretty: - Heather
Same with me... I've been steadily getting closer to the German side of my heritage. Very fulfilling, even if there are dark sides to it. - Brent Schaus
Stab myself with a needle, again. #cantbetrustedwithsharpobjects
HALP! I have a mom guilt situation.
My mom called yesterday to tell me the job I had previously with her is basically back. It's an as needed thing. She called it an internship, but assured me I would get paid at the end of the call. - Heather
The problem is, Chris would have to drive me 45mins on Monday, I would stay at my parents that night, work Tuesday too, and my mom would drive me back out here (and just over an hour home). - Heather
I hated the job (cold calling), it's a commitment for both me and Chris, it's going to cost gas money, and I'm not happy with my mom because of how she's been talking to me about getting a job. - Heather
The only pro is that I would get paid, probably. - Heather
Thoughts? - Heather
my initial response: do what's best for you and Chris FIRST. everything else is secondary. i think your first responsibility is to the pair of you, not your mom. - Big Joe Silence
Basically, if there's no written guarantee of a paycheck, and it requires an outlay of funds from you, then I'd give that the big thumbs down. Even if pay is guaranteed, if it doesn't significantly cover your expenses (and time commitment,) also a no. - Jennifer Dittrich
Honestly the stress built in in all that looks to exceed the monetary gains unless your mom's got deep pockets. - Steve C Team Marina
What everyone else said. There ain't nothing like mom guilt, but this is a perfect opportunity to establish some boundaries. - Corinne L
I love you guys, seriously. I haven't had any positive thoughts towards this and I feel a lot better knowing I'm not just coming off as a petulant brat. Standing up to my mom for the way she talks to me about getting a job is a long time coming, so it wont be easy. I really hope it makes future conversations smoother though. - Heather
Girl, I was there many, many times with my mom. It took a long time for her to stop haranguing me about jobs - and even when I would be doing well, she'd be full of ideas about where I could work or who might need a good writer. Work on keeping your voice level when discussing job stuff and don't hesitate to hang up if she gets nasty (prefacing it with something like "This isn't up for discussion, mom, I love you, hanging up now"). Good luck! - Corinne L
Moms have a way with presenting something you don't want to do in a way that's almost impossible to not do.
If I end up with a THIRD finger bandaged in the next 48 hours, I will be pissed!
So thankful I wasn't alone in the KICU today, seeing as I only managed to get 3 kittens done in the time she did 11. Arrived late, emergency bathroom break, and sitting in a dark room for a while to combat dizziness/nausea added up to starting a half hour late.
Seriously though, I was just barely useful today. I hope I'm better tomorrow. - Heather
Also, after my shift I got bit by a rabbit. Finger tips bleed a lot. :( - Heather
Owww. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
:( You're a volunteer. You do what you can do. - Spidra Webster
It's hard to remember, but you're totally right. I'm going in tomorrow too, so hopefully I can feel redeemed after a second shift. :) - Heather
Let's see, it's September.... So I only waited 5 months to get a case for my iPad!
I had a dream about the Kitten ICU. I think it was triggered by guilt for not making either shift last week.
I wasn't alone today! The guy who filled in was really nice, he's actually fostering one of the kittens that was in the KICU before. And we finished by 2:30. - Heather
Current YouTube binge: Hula
OMAN I wish I could move like that. - Heather
Imma dance like an uncoordinated duck pretending it's hula for several days now. - Heather
The uncoordinated duck's image will haunt my brain all day long. - Xabaras (G.O.)
So Australia is even crazier than I thought it was? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!?! -
So Australia is even crazier than I thought it was? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!?!
Yep. Pretty much true. - Johnny from iPhone
It just occurred to me that Hitchcock's "The Birds" must seem like the lamest thing to the average Australian. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I have a magpie phobia after getting swooped quite viciously as a kid. I refuse to walk anywhere in magpie season (and usually a month or two either side) unless I'm carrying an umbrella. - Melly - #TeamMarina
There are birds here with that swooping behavior during nesting season, I forget what kind of bird but there was a big problem with them by San Francisco city hall, used to be reports on the news about it every year. People with bloody foreheads n shit. Haven't heard anything in a while, maybe they moved them away from downtown. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
& this thread cracked me the hell up. What the actual fuck Australia. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
LOL, crazy! Our magpies are so docile. - Jenny H. from Android
@starmama: red-winged blackbirds during nesting season. One nested on a streetlight right outside the staff door at MfPOW. It got me once or twice. Here's news video from Chicago. - Betsy
That was them! People claimed there was one bird in particular who was attacking people the most, started calling it Swoopy :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Plovers are little bastards too. - Melly - #TeamMarina
My heart keeps catching in my throat watching that magpie video. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Can I please go back to just shrimps on barbies image of Australia? I guess not. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Home alone.
do the face! do the face! or at least tie some paint cans up to sling at bad guys - Steve C Team Marina
I was thinking more along the lines of salting the doors and windows and finding something made of silver. - Heather
Something CRAZY just happened outside, no idea what. It involved a tree, "whoop whoop" sounds, and angry cats though.
Ugh, I'm so goofy. Simple internet search tells me the "whoop whoop" was probably raccoons. Either a straight up raccoon fight or kits being protected from a cat. YouTube CAN be educational! :p - Heather
I hate not being able to help. I want to... I have the anger, I have the time, I just don't know what I can do.
Took the Amazon box they sent bunbun's litter in and cut it in half to make 2 useful things. One is under the couch so she can't chew on the guts, the other is filled with ripped up newspaper and covering the part of the carpet she's been going after. #LifeHacks
The air conditioning situation in this house has become so annoying to me, I'm dreaming about it.
Also, damn! I didn't know I could be a sassy bitch in my dreams. - Heather
work it girl - Steve C Team Marina
^ lol - Spidra Webster
I overuse the word "horrible" because I can't spell atrocious. Holy crap, did I spell that right?
Just watched a cute little one of these exploring the backyard. The picnic table and hay rack were boring, but the grill! Now that's something to check out. -

I had a chance encounter with his cousin last year whilst working in the front yard. Dude came out of the woods as I was gathering branches I'd cut from a bush. We regarded each other momentarily. He knew he had the upper hand. So did I. Immediately realizing that I could hear my mother calling, or that I was thirsty, or something, I retreated the opposite direction with as much dignity as I could muster. I imagined him barely suppressing a chuckle as he continued his rounds. - MoTO: Team Marina
This, my friends, is how our cat Mittens came to be a part of our household. He was a stray that lived around our porch. We would leave bowls of food & water on the porch for him. In yum, though, one of these critters decided that the bowl of food was for him. We couldn't have a skunk living on our porch, so we finally let Mittens live inside the house. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
I once had a cat with skunk-like markings, and he had a tendency to freak out my neighbors, who would not take my word for it that he was a cat, unless I went over and picked him up. My neighborhood does have a lot of skunks, though, so it's not a good idea to go walking around at night, unless you keep your keys in your hand and jingle them as you walk. - April Russo
Grossest day in KICU so far. Too much stuff coming out of kittens. I got kitten poop on both hands. x_x
Other than that, I have a new kitty love (Petunia, last weeks crush, is in the adoption center). Her name is Sun and she's a hefty 4lbs, which means she will probably also be a one and done for me. - Heather
