Do you ever think that maybe God is bipolar? One minutes he's all like, "I made puppies and kittens. Ooh, pretty sun!" The next, "Bitch, I told you not to look back! Fuck it, you're salt now."

Tired...

So I'm here at work, and I don't want to work anymore.  Also, I'm tired of going to school.  All I really want to do is chill at home doing nothing for the next 6 months without any responsibilities.  I'm tired of dealing with adults who act like kindergartners and I'm tired of doing homework.  I'm bored, but have so much to do.  Does that make sense?
From the www.nohr669.com website:

What is HR 669?
H.R. 669 stands for House Resolution 669 and is titled "The Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act". It is a bill currently before Congress that if passed will change the way that the US Government classifies animal species that are not native to the United States. H.R. 669 will make it illegal to breed and sell many animals that are very common in the pet trade.

Why should you care about HR 669?
Anyone with pet fish, birds, reptiles, or small mammals will be affected by this bill. Any company selling product or services for pet fish, birds, reptiles or small mammals will be affected by this bill. Would you be impacted by "The Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act"?
  • Virtually all fish in an aquarium are not native to the United States
  • Most pet birds are species not native to the US
  • Most reptiles kept as pets are not native to the US
  • Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and ferrets are not native to the US
What can you do to stop HR 669?
You can help by standing up and making your voice heard. Let your Representative know that you oppose H.R. 669 and the financial and/or emotional effect it will have on you, or your friends, or your family members if it passes. The link below will allow you to send an email to your Representative in Congress and even give you the option to follow up with a phone call.


New Back Pics

I was finally able to take some pics of my back.  I am going Monday to start work on the roots.  I am both excited and full of dread, lol.

An Empty Vault

 I have been watching the black-footed cam over the past couple of days.  She was due yesterday and I remember reading that they weren't sure if she was pregnant or not.  I had this image of Geraldo Rivera turning to the camera and saying "Another empty vault."  It made me giggle hysterically.  So I had to share with my mom, and she gave me this look....  I don't think she thought it was as funny as I did. 

Good news, Georgia (the ferret) gave birth.  The link to the ferret cam is below:

Money Woes...

I went to school yesterday to register for "Elementary Statistics" because the online registration option wasn't working for this class.  After registering they tell me I have to pay $454 dollars.  What happened to my financial aid?  I made to much money last year apparently.  I only got $400 dollars from my Pell Grant this semester.  CRAP!  I wish college were free.  I think as a "civilized" country we should have free education past high school.  If you want to better yourself you shouldn't have to move back home at 27 years old so that you could afford classes and books.  I am 29 now, and still living at home so that I can pay for school, and I still have to take out loans.  I only go part-time and I make 40k a year now, so next year I probably won't receive financial aid at all.

My back piece is almost done.  I only have the roots left to do.  I can't take any good pics of my back, but here's a quick shot I did this morning (I suck at taking pics).

Attacked

I sit here typing this with a 2 inch long scratch under my chin which is bleeding sluggishly.  One may wonder how I got this mark of violence.  I wish I had a magnificent tale of bravery and heroism to tell, but I don't.  Bacardi is the culprit.  I noticed today that the nails on my Mistress and Master were long and proceeded to prepare to do the most dangerous undertaking known to the slaves of Rabbits:  nail trimming.

I put on a sweatshirt to defend myself against their claws of doom, I pulled my hair back, grabbed my nail trimmers, and snatched up Diva as she is the easiest to catch.  18 snips later she is flicking feet at me on her way to the corner to groom away my touch.  'That was easy,' I think to myself. 

Bacardi sits out in the open, doesn't move as I approach.  He looks relaxed...  I grab him, and the horrible struggle begins.  Claws outstretched he lunges for my face in pure rage!!!  I am bleeding into the collar of my sweatshirt, and he RELAXES.  This rabbit is pure evil I tell you, pure undiluted EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!  As soon as I start bleeding, he calms down!  I just don't get it!
