More Things I just LOVE About the Construction Going On

I just love glancing up at my skylight and seeing a face looking back at me. Makes me really happy. Same with walking into the kitchen and seeing a different face looking at me. Damn creepy since I'm on the second floor.

I just love the way they started ripping the siding off the outer wall of my bathroom while I was in the shower. There's nothing like unexpected, extremely loud pounding RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR HEAD to comfort a naked woman in the shower.

I just love the way all this constructions has the creatures in the house in a tizzy. Esme thinks we're being attacked and hovers between huddling next to me and looking for something to kill when she's not hucking up a hairball that is. Also, the previously quiet, hidden spiders are all showing themselves in unhappiness at the disturbance. I got visible spiders in every room of my home now.

I really need to get out of here. I've promised myself a walk everyday. Now is a good time to head out.

PS: I'm in a really bad mood. I apologize in advance.

PS: I'm heading to Victor's if anyone wants to meet me there. I should be there around 9:30am-ish.

Damn Spam!

I just got a Nigeria spam from "Kelvin Jones" which I misread to "Kevin Jones" an ultra fabulous friend of mine from the Bay Area. I got all excited that he was writing. In the 5 seconds or so that it took the email to open, I imagined that he was announcing his wife was pregnant or that he was moving to New Zealand or that he was ready for a trip to Port Townsend. Obviously, I am now very disappointed. A pox on all spammers! May all their children have small penises - even the girls!

King County Animal Shelter Needs Help!

I just got this from the King County Animal Shelter. I absolutely cannot foster kittens while my condo is under construction or I would be taking in some of these kittens. The construction noise would frighten them too much. However, maybe you or someone you know could volunteer or foster for them?

Now is the time to foster if you’ve been waiting until you’re really needed. This just in from Officer Daniele at the shelter:

HELP! The shelter is filling up quickly! We have had many cats brought in today, both stray and surrenders.
· ISO is full!

We still have a lot of kittens that need foster care:
· A group of 4 friendly kittens in the grooming room. Eating softened canned food. About 5 weeks old.
· A group of 3 kittens in the grooming room about 5 weeks old also. Eating. Just a little shy.
· A group of three very playful kittens in the cattery, about 6 weeks old. Eating well. Just need a couple of weeks to be adoptable.
· We just had a stray mom brought in. She is nervous here, but she walked right up to the finder. She is very pretty. Looks like an Abyssinian mix. She has 5 very adorable babies about 4 weeks old.

Any help is appreciated since we are also short staffed.
