Cat, Cat, and Cats

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 22, 2014, 9:42 PM
I have a lot of cat news today.

This morning I had a hard time getting up.  I spent a good hour and a half doing crosswords in bed trying to wake up and falling asleep over and over.  Finally my dad told me to get up and go outside with my mom.  She was sitting outside with Candie reading.  When I got out there she put the book down and got up to rake.  When we opened the back gate, mom spotted a kitty.  He or she was lying dead in the weeds right next to the gate.  If we had not been paying attention we would have stepped on it.  It was all wet and there was a vine around it's neck.  I think it was strangled by the sociopath next door.  They have a habit of laying animals they killed where others will find them, especially cats.  Whenever dad leaves, mom and I are going to go back there with gloves and try to figure out what killed it.

On a much brighter side, when we came home from dinner, we pulled up in the driveway and saw two kittens playing on the Stumpe's side of the driveway.  The we saw eyes under the gate, a kitten peeking out of the gate.  As we watched it finally emerged and another set of eyes appeared, then a head.  When it had fully emerged, another set of eyes appeared.  We thought there was FIVE kittens.  When that one finally emerged, it was much bigger.  It was the mama.  And it was Curious George.  We had always thought she was a boy, but not so.  She's the mama of four healthy little kitties.  Way to go for her.  They're all so cute.  So from now on her name is Georgina.

So we lost one but gained 4, so we are at a total of 5 kitties plus Izzy.  Izzy lives with the Stumpes, so I don't count him in the total.  To the best of my knowledge he's still alive.  I saw him a few weeks ago.

A Perfect Example of Irony

Hello.  This will be a short post.  I was reading my textbook to study for one of my tests, and one line stood out to me:

"Maslow died in 1970 of a massive heart attack, which he suffered while jogging around his swimming pool, an exercise recommended by his cardiologist.

Okay.  His heart doctor told him to run around his swimming pool to take good care of his heart, and it caused a heart attack?!  Wow.  In trying to take care of himself in his old age, he dies.  Killed by a heart attack brought on by his HEART doctor's orders.  Irony.

Cats, Police, and Cosplay

Such a weird title right?  I hope it draws your attention and makes you want to read.  I have three separate stories to tell that happened in the course of time from my first class today to when I got home.  It's been a very eventful day so far and it isn't even noon!  :D

The only other exciting thing this week was that Tuesday (Oct. 28th) we had a blackout.  Laiken told me today that it was squirrels were chewing on the wires and killed the power, so we got out of class early.  Gone are the days when you could teach with the lights off.  Computers don't work, time to go home.  lol.

So, I got to school and had class.  That was pretty normal.  When I went up to the lab with my class to print out some stuff I needed to turn in, I saw a girl that was dressed kind of weird, but I only got a glimpse, so I didn't really pay it any mind.  I printed my stuff out, finished everything, turned it in and left.  It was then that I saw what she was wearing.  It was a kick ass Attack on Titan cosplay.  I had a progression of thoughts.
Leaving the lab- What the heck? She's wearing cosplay at school?  That takes balls.
Walking down the stairs- Why is she doing that, she's going to get in trouble.
Bottom of the stairs- OH!  It's almost Halloween, so we're allowed to dress up.
Walking out of the lobby- Dang, that was an awesome cosplay.  I should have stopped and told her how great it was.

So then I walked the long distance to my car and drove almost home.  I was at the cutthrough and I pulled up behind a cop.  Now that red light is no right on red because you can't see.  It's clearly marked.  Next thing I know, this idiot TURNS RIGHT ON RED!!!  Right in front of the cop.  The cop honked his horn and flashed his lights to pull the guy over.  I was sitting there in my car smiling, cheering him on. "You go cop!  Pull that guy over.  Justice!!!"  I'm a libra, I can't help myself.  (For those that don't know what that means, my sign is the scales of justice.  Libras adore justice.)  That totally made my day for there to be a cop around when you need one.  I was smiling the whole rest of the way home.

So when we got home I was in a great mood and telling my Dad all about my day.  Once I got done, he was like "Follow me," so I did.  He took me out in the yard and told me to look up in the tree.  Well there are about 10 trees, so I was looking all around and he finally told me to look at the clump above the shed.  There were TWO of the cats stuck up there!  Cats in trees.  It's so cliche!  Dad said they had been there since just after I left (9:00).  At that point it was 10:18.  So they'd been there a little over an hour, just stuck.  Poor things.  So we started calling to them and finally Curious George started moving.  He shimmied down the tree and took a tumble about 8 feet up.  He was all right, no injuries.  It took him about 10 minutes to get down.  His sister however, started moving a little after that.  She had seen what he had done and started trying to mimic him.  She made slow progress.  There were little Vs in the tree trunk and she settled into each one and stayed there for a while before trying to get down to the next one.  At one point she got stuck with her hind legs on one branch and front legs underneath her.  She flipped herself over in an attempt to get unstuck and I thought she was going to fall, but she managed to hold on.  Several Vs later and a shimmy and she finally got down.  I stood out there and coaxed her for an hour to get her to come down.  She made it to the ground at 11:21.  Whoo!  Cats, man.  lol

All right, so that covers cats, cops, and cosplay, all of which start with C.  lol  I just noticed that. :D  Another thing I noticed today, Laiken is left handed.  She and I are the only ones in the class.  So I like her more now.  She's left handed and curly haired, just like me.  Yay for the 1%s.

Have a great day and Happy Halloween!

So my mom and I were watching Chicago Fire tonight and when it was over the news came on for a minute before it asked us to delete, and I saw the top story.  I was very surprised to hear the name of a guy that I went to high school with.  I haven't been keeping up with him, so I had no idea that he had stopped farming and gone into the military, gotten a "girlfriend," and had a kid.

So yeah.  His house was broken into while he was overseas and the whole thing was caught on video.  Here's the story.  It has the video if you are interested.

Also, it is my birthday.  I'm 26 today.  I got Tales of Xillia 2 for my bday.  I would love to be playing it right now, but it's too late right now, so I will have to play it tomorrow.  Bummer.

All right, well, I have stuff to do, soooo I'm off.  Y'all have a great day!
