Also? Damn you lack of willpower. And having the space now. And having lost Tri back in the winter.

...yeaaah, I should NOT be allowed near Free Kitten signs in any context. >>;

But I guess... well, I had a free space again since Tri is gone, plus I have a ton of room here, and on top of that now I know I can get them spayed/neutered and get them their shots really cheap through the Barrie SPCA. If I had to try to afford all that at the regular vet it would be upwards of $1000 by the time I was done, and I wouldn't have brought them home.

Anyway, the one in the foreground is Vesta; named after the Roman Goddess of the Hearth and Harvest. Ves is a girl and her colour is brindle (she has one cream glove on her front left paw, which is adorable. ♥) She has kind of brown-green eyes right now, but I think they're probably going to end up totally green by the time they're done changing colour. Ves is really spunky and seems to love to climb on things. And by "things" I mean "me". She climbs up clothing and then clings to the back of my neck or my head, which is really cute and funny NOW, but I imagine I should break her of that habit before she gets too much bigger. ^^;

The mostly behind Ves is Nio; named after the Gods in Japanese myth who traveled with Buddah to protect him. (Technically, the o should have a - over it, but I can't figure out how to do that on my keyboard. =/) Nio is a boy and almost completely black with about a dozen white hairs on his little belly. His eyes are kind of hazel right now. I think they might end up brown or goldish. He's quite rambunctious as well, but not nearly as much as Vesta. He's a lot more laid back. She pushes him around quite a bit, actually, even though she's smaller. XD;;

They're sister and brother from the same litter, and I just picked them up today. They've settled in quite nicely, though for now they're confined to the bedroom. I've given them their worming meds today, and I was giving all the cats their spring flea treatment today anyway, so they got treated for that as well (I had extra kitten Advantage since Tia is so small she still has to use that instead of the Advantage for adult cats. lol.) Now they're chilling in here, and in a few days I'll let them out to start exploring the rest of the house and terrorizing the other cats. ♥

They are IMPOSSIBLE to get pics of right now, hence the somewhat dubious one here. They don't stay still long enough for me to snap a photo unless they're asleep, and they've taken to sleeping on the spare blankets under the bed. (Not that I blame them, it's really cozy under there, really.) I managed to get this little pic when they were snoozing under the dresser instead, before they discovered they could get under the bed.


On a somewhat-related note, I'm finally burying Tri this weekend. I asked Grandma a while back if I could bury him somewhere on her property and she said yes, but until now we haven't been able to because of snow/frost and then rain. This weekend is supposed to be nice, so Mom and my brother and I are going to go up and take care of it.

That's not going to be a good day for me, I already know that. But coming home and cuddling kittens will probably help me feel a little better. And their antics are pretty cute and distracting.

Anyhow, a real update soon, I promise. Also, pics of the new place since it's about 75% organized now. Yep.

EDIT: The image is kind of big... if it messes up anyone's friends page let me know and I'll make it smaller or put it under a cut or something.
senashenta: (Tail Whip)
My sleeping schedule is all messed up. ~_~;; As usual. /whatever.

So I guess the big news the last couple of days is that Tia is in heat.


Even though I GOT HER SPAYED all the way back in NOVEMBER. >__O;;

IDK, I looked it up online and I guess if the vet missed a bit of one of her ovaries during the surgery that would explain it.

But still, it's frustrating and annoying and she is LOUD right now. Plus 'Dion is humping her every time we turn around (he's due to be neutered next month, but I guess he's old enough to have figured it out. :P) I'm going to call the vet on Monday and go "ummm... I paid you to spay her to avoid this very thing. FIX IT PLZ." and hopefully they'll do it without complaining too much.

Other than that, I'm pretty much done unpacking now. Just four more boxes to go. Between one thing and another it's taken longer than I intended, but at least now Lee won't be on my case about boxes being all over the house anymore. XD;;

I can't find the box with my framed photos though, and that's kind of upsetting. I guess I'll have to print new copies of the ones I really want and buy new frames. HEY MADDIE/CHLOE/PRONNIE! SCAN OUR GROUP PIC FROM THE AQUARIUM LAST SUMMER AND MAIL IT TO ME? It's one of the ones that I really want in a frame... the rest of them I think I have on either Z or Squall, I just have to locate them.

Oh, and I'm setting up a musebox for listing all my rp journals and stuff finally. [ profile] vilyaore, which used to be my NaNo journal so right now it's still filled with Wednesday's Child stuff, which I need to copy + paste to my HD before I delete it from the journal itself...

EDIT: OH ALSO. RAINBOW BOA!! This is the next snake I am aiming for. They're not gigantic, are mid-range difficulty to take care of (they need very specific heat/humidity) but they are GORGEOUS. Their scales have an iridescent sheen to them, which makes them kind of glow in various colours depending on the light. LOOK AT HOW PRETTY THEY ARE!! ♥♥♥

And I've decided I also want an Iriyan Jaya Carpet Python. On doing more research, the Blood Python is much too large. The Hog Island Boa is still a contender though...
senashenta: (Marluxia + rose)
I posted a bunch of photos of my current apartment over at FB. If you can't access them just wait a couple of days and I'll be posting them here too once I finally dl the graphics program I like onto Squall. XD
senashenta: (Durr...)

Finally, a Loki picture! Haha, you can't tell really from this pic but he gained a ton of weight while I was down in the US this summer. ^_^; Now he's all rolly-polly. I'm working on getting him back to where he should be, but he's using nonviolent resistance in that all he does is lay around and sleep all day. xD;
senashenta: (Ecklie Is A Dick)

Neko snuggling with the wubba toy I got from the vet's in Tia and 'Dion's Kitten Kit; it's like a fuzzy octopus thing with a rattle in the head and something in the arms that makes them crunch when the cats play with it. They all love it. ♥
senashenta: (Cute Little Thing)

Tia has lately taken to sleeping in the sink for some reason...

Another 'Dion photo. lol his expression makes me giggle. He's such a goof~
senashenta: (Tail Whip)
I didn't get around to posting a CCP yesterday, so you get two today to make up for it. ♥

The first is of Tri, happy in his box (he sleeps here all the time) and with his sock to cuddle with. It's just an old one I gave the cats after the holes in it got so bad I couldn't wear it anymore. Haha.

And the second is a pic of Juna sleeping on the couch. He sleeps in weird positions the same as 'Dion does, but somehow looks much less goofy while doing so. .__. Go figure.

senashenta: (Minty & Wysteria MLP)

Neko sleeping in the "cat basket". It's just a whicker basket with a towel in the bottom that sits on top of the chest freezer, but he adores the stupid thing lol. XD
senashenta: (Co~Dependant)

Yes, 'Dion is in this one too. But so is Tia! My two youngest enjoying the comforts of the new couch.

Tomorrow I swear it won't be a pic of 'Dion. XD;
senashenta: (Blue Hearts Bunny)

Another one of 'Dion. He's so cute when he sleeps, he always ends up in the funniest positions. ♥
senashenta: (Cute Little Thing)
I've decided that some of my flist has been too depressed lately. So I'm going to do my part to help them feel better. With kittens. Every day I'm going to share a Cute Cat Photo here and (the same one) on my Facebook. So even if you're having a terrible day, just pop on over to my LJ or FB and there will be adorable furry-ness to be had. :)

This one is for Oct 3rd, even though it's now technically nine minutes into the 4th. ♥

'Dion sleeping in the corner of the pull-out-bed after dinner. Lookit his cute round kitten belly all full of foodz! :3

(I've resized this about a million times to try to keep it from messing up anyone's LJ. If it still does, let me know and I'll try resizing it again.)
senashenta: (Idiot Savant)
Pics of my new ball python, Ayame. Everything's under a cut in case there's someone on my flist that's got a problem with snakes. Isn't Aya pretty? I luff him. I'm looking forward to having him for a long, long time. ♥

Aya :3 )

I've wanted a snake for a pet for years and years, but for the longest time I didn't get one because of my Grandpa. He HATED snakes, and I was seriously afraid he would disown me if I got one. Even now, after I brought Aya home I said a little prayer at Grandpa's shrine for him to forgive me. >>;

Anyway, after he died I started looking into them more seriously but between one thing and another (mostly monetary issues) it took me about five years to get one. I ended up deciding on a ball python because I like the constrictors but I don't want one that's going to end up 20 freaking feet long like the large ones can. Plus ball pythons are easy to take care of and a good snake for someone who's never dealt with them before. :)

lol I need to find a Furuba icon of Aya now. xD
senashenta: (Carousel Twins)
Sharing photos of some of my recent beading projects (for selling at Otakon/Matsuricon) I've done all these over the last week or so, and a bunch of them are from the last couple days when I wasn't sleeping because of worrying over Lee and everything. Anyway.

Necklaces~ )

The black and red butterfly one is my favourite, but the blue mermaid one is a close second. I actually wore that one out yesterday and got compliments on it from the girls at Magpie Beads. ♥ lol I almost don't want to sell them. XD;;

Bookmarks~ )

BOOKMARKS. They were fun to make. I also made another red one for Lee, with a guitar charm on it and etc. (since he plays guitar) as a present and took it to him in the hospital when I visited yesterday, but I didn't actually take any photos of it for some reason. xD;;

Speaking of Lee, he's been discharged from the hospital. They did all these tests on him and can't find anything wrong (even when he was having the attack all the monitors and everything said things were fine and normal wtf?) and he's doing fine again. They did every test they could come up with but as far as they're telling the doctors there's nothing wrong with him. It's frustrating. But Lee's feeling alright again so they just sent him home. IDK, I'm still worried. =/
senashenta: (ZOMG! Envy)
1) First, the photos from when I was in the hospital for the surgery back in February! I've been meaning to post them forever and just kept forgetting. I fail. Anyway, here they are finally:

Sena-vacuum wtf. )

2) Photos of Juna, finally! I posted a couple over at my FB page but I haven't posted anything here so now I am! :3 Look how handsome my new baby is! He's going to be huge when he's full grown though lmao he's already ten pounds at only six months old. >>;

Arjuna, Hindu God of Destruction and Floofiness. )

3) The little, teeny-tiny kittens at Dad's place right now. They're all varying degrees of tabby, but they're SO cute. They're mobile now but they still toddle around and lose their balance half the time. It's so adorable. ♥♥♥ The female is Mia and the smaller boy is Max. Then the bigger boy is Butch.

The Hole In The Wall Gang. )

4) Dad has about 200 dolls stored in the top of the barn right now. They used to belong to my aunt, but now they're just collecting dust and he doesn't know which ones are worth money and which ones are cheap ones and etc.; so while I was down this weekend I had a quick look through some of them for him. About half of them are worth A LOT of money. The other half are either damaged or cheap ones. Some weekend in a couple months I'm going back down to help him go through them properly since I only had about an hour to look through them this time.

Anyway, one of the ones that was damaged and kind of ratty I brought home because even though the DOLL was damaged the clothes were still pretty much pristine, just a little dusty. So now I have a BEAUTIFUL dress for Nazoko, which I LOVE. And I think I might take the rest of the broken dolls too and strip them down before getting rid of them. The dresses are gorgeous and it'd be a waste for them to go just because the dolls have seen better days.

Gothic-Loli Nazoko. )

There was a lot of other stuff besides dolls too (my aunt was a hoarder and a compulsion shopper) so I ended up with some cute Christmas ornaments, a tiny decorative tree, a brand new crock pot, some wine goblet candle holders and a porcelain baby doll for Sarah too, since she collects them. Dad's trying to finally clear everything out since it's been there for about seven years now. >>;

5) And finally! At AN yesterday I bought a pair of red contacts for Kyo!cosplay at Otakon and Matsuricon, so I tried them out tonight. They're hilarious and awesome. I'm tempted to wear them out on Tuesday when Mom, Sarah and I go to do groceries. XD!

senashenta: (ZOMG! Envy)
Maddie has got me watching Destination Truth. Which is awesome because I can watch it online and I've been lacking in new stuff to watch lately. Bad news: She sent me to two specific episodes that SERIOUSLY CREEPED ME OUT. One with this island that was full of freaky dolls AND ONE OF THEM FUCKING BLINKED BY ITSELF ON CAMERA, and the other one was typical haunted forest stuff until one of the camera guys got FLUNG ACROSS THE CLEARING BY NOTHING. >.O!!

I am so glad I only have Cali to deal with here. Shut up, I named the calico cat ghost Cali for lack of anything else to call her. She's actually kind of fun to have around and plays with Loki and Tri all the time. Loki is particularly fond of her, it seems. He has a ghosty girlfriend haha.

Anyway, now I've found a site that has all the eps of it, so I'm starting from the beginning. Then Imma move on to Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International. I'm a glutton for punishment, what can I say? XD;

For another topic, I now realize why the beaded chopstick hair ornaments are so expensive. I have made one. It took six hours all together for one chopstick, and hurt my hands like WHOA. Plus over half the beads in it are swarovski, so that'll raise the cost too. All in all, an expensive and time consuming thing to make. But it turned out really pretty.

Photos of my first hair ornament. )

Swarovski rondelles in crystal and pink, swarovski bicones in crystal, round crystals (non-swarovski), gold coloured round spacers, gold coloured stars, white mother of pearl rounds, pink seed beads, and flat pink flowers + A LOT OF TIME AND PAIN. I love how it came out. :3

It's the most awkward thing ever to photograph though. .__.;

I started two more tonight too, but it'll probably take me a while to get them finished.

EDIT: Oh also lol. Before I started watching DT I watched a couple eps of Monster Quest and one of them was about giant rats in New York. And they were talking to biologists who were saying how a rat that gets to be over a pound in weight is HUGE and rare... and I was playing with Sora at the time. Sora, who weighs A POUND AND A HALF. I OWN A GIANT MONSTER RAT. xD;; (Roxy and Riku are only about 1/3 of his size. He dwarfs them haha.)
senashenta: (DEAN APPROVES)
I've started a kind of little project just to keep myself occupied when I have nothing else to do. It's a photo study of cats (mostly mine) and basically all the photos are in black and white. Turns out Loki is generally the most photogenic of my kitties. (But then I always knew he was handsome under all the scabs and scars, and now that that's fixed he's a pretty boy again. <3)

Anyway, this is my personal favorite so far. One of Neko. Go look at my DevART gallery if you want to see the rest that I've posted so far. I'd forgotten how much I love real photography...

senashenta: (A Little Strange Because I Am)
Yeah I fail at like... everything online lately. I've been having a lot of trouble irl with various things, which I may or may not get into in this entry. Anyway, list format today for the sake of my sanity because I have a fuckton of stuff to talk about since it's been so long since I last wrote anything. xD;

1) ANIME NORTH. Okay, basically I spent the whole weekend at my table trying to sell jewelry and pony commissions (since I wasn't allowed to actually sell the ponies there). I sold a bit, and got two commissions (Van from Escaflowne and Reno from FFVII. XD), but the way Artist Alley and Crafter's Corner was organized this year was RETARDED, and the Corner was way the hell out of the way so we got practically no traffic. SO ANNOYING. Anyway, all that work and spending that much time at the table, and I basically broke even for the cost of the con registration, the table, and the parts that went into the jewelry. So much for making money for Otakon. -__-;

Anyway, that aside, I got to see Mel and Zexy again. :3 I went to a D-Gray photoshoot with Mel on Friday, and to the Moonlight Ball with her and Bonnie on Saturday night for a while. I didn't get to see Zexy as much, but she stopped by my table twice to say hi and give her her present~

On Friday I wore my Org13 Demyx outfit. It was INSANELY HOT. DAMN PLEATHER. And I forgot my gloves at home, so I just wore my shark/dolphin rings instead. *shrug* I also didn't have my boots because the morons I ordered them from backed out at the last minute. This was remedied Saturday morning, though, when I found awesome bootcovers in the Dealer's Room. Then Saturday during the day I wore my casual!Demyx outfit. Did I mention I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new wig? It's so awesome there are no words to describe it. And it fits perfectly, and stays in place all day, it doesn't even budge. >w<~ Anyhow! Then Saturday night for the Moonlight Ball I wore my Haine cosplay. Sunday was Org13 Demyx again for a while, then last-minute casual!Lavi that pretty much all came from my closet lol.

I didn't buy a whole ton of stuff like I do most years because I was trying to save monies for Otakon, but I did get four boxes of pocky, a Riku plushie (I always get myself a plushie at AN), and about 30 buttons. XD; A bunch of KH ones, some FFVII ones and some Ouran ones. Also, one booth had kitty buttons and the proceeds from them went to a cat rescue, so I got myself one of those. Then I got three more the next day to send to people. XD; Oh, and I got some henna done on my arm. It's faded out now, but I took pics of it~

Various photos from AN. Haine cosplay photos when I get around to getting some from Mel or raiding my Mom's camera. >>; )

2) ON THE WAY HOME FROM ANIME NORTH. Two things happened; first, I was looking out the window of the van and actually saw a songbird attack a hawk in midflight. It was spectacular and I couldn't believe it. I've seen that kind of thing on Animal Planet, but I never thought I'd see it IRL. WOW.

Second... I broke a knuckle in my right hand. >__>;; I caught it in a booth when we stopped for food. It was all bruised for a while and hurt like a bitch, but I didn't bother going to the hospital. *shrug* Which was fine until a couple days ago when I smashed it off a doorknob and re-cracked it. xD; *FAIL OMFG*

3) OTAKON. Well... I didn't make any money toward Otakon at AN like I'd wanted, but I still managed to finagle out a way to pay for it. GO ME. Basically, I'm not paying my parents rent for next month, and then paying double in August. I'm also borrowing $300 from my Grandma, which I'm paying back in September. Ugh more debt but fuck it, I'M GOING. XD; So I've already paid for my registration and my plane tickets (NO 26 HOUR BUS RIDE FOR ME THIS YEAR), which completely maxed out my credit card two weeks ago, but you know... whatever. >>; It'll get paid off at the end of the month.

Maddie love, let me know when you have a tentative total for the stuff we're doing in Dayton and gas monies and everything. ♥

Cosplay for Otakon! Org13 Demyx and Haine for sure. Also, I think I'm going to do Riku cosplay from BOYS, just for kicks and to see how many people get it. I could trim up my Suigintou wig a bit and it'd work for Riku totally fine. I NEED SOME HEMP BRACELETS AND STUFF. I SHOULD GET SOME HEMP AND JUST MAKE THEM MYSELF IT WOULD BE CHEAPER. I also need some gray arm warmers to go as fake long sleeves under the t-shirt so that I don't have to wear layers lol. Also, yakuza!Kadaj, complete with pinstripe shirt and fedora. >D

I'm also bringing about six other wigs in case myself or anyone wants to do impromptu cosplay of anything. My Kyo wig for sure, and my blonde pigtail one, and probably my blue one and maybe my red one, though I got that one for Axel cosplay (next year maybe), and I don't want it to get messed up between now and when I have a chance to style it... hmm. Must think on this more.

4) B-GRADE MOVIES. After AN, we stopped at Dad and Lois' place to say hi and see teh doggies, and I borrowed 24 b-grade movies from him. XD TWENTY-FOUR. AWESOME. Some of the best ones were The Burrowers, Alien Raiders and Decoys (the second one is bad though.) I also borrowed Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which I LOVED. ♥

5) SORA AND RIKU. Last week I had to take my rats to the vet. Riku was diagnosed with pneumonia, and the vet gave me antibiotics for him... but unfortunately, he died the next day. It's sad, but he was in a really bad way, so I'm kind of glad he didn't suffer for long. Sora doesn't seem to know what to do without him, though. Also, I had to treat Sora for mites today. That's no big deal, though.


7) FEET. Last Friday, my feet and ankles swelled up to twice their normal size. As in, I had no discernable ankle, and could barely walk because of it. =_=;; And they stayed that way until TUESDAY NIGHT. WTF? I have no idea why, but it was a pain and a little disturbing on top of that. I had a doctor's appointment yesterday though, and the doctor wants me to go for bloodwork, since it's possible my meds are the cause of the swelling. Yep.

8) DOCTORS IN TORONTO. A while back, I mentioned about going in for gastric bypass surgery. Last month I went to the initial consultation in Toronto, and then earlier this month I went for the appointment with the social worker and dietician. I still have to go to a gastric bypass class, and see an internist before going back to the surgeon again, at which point my surgery will actually be scheduled.

Things are actually coming along rather well. The only big problem right now is that my Grandma is really against it. She doesn't think I should do it. But then she thinks that my weight issues are my fault. It's bad enough that strangers assume I'm lazy and don't eat well, but having my own Grandma think that really hurts. She keeps giving me lectures about exercise and eating right-- I already eat right (even the dietician was impressed), and I exercise as much as I can but with my legs the way they are, it isn't always possible. I have to walk with a cane, Grandma, it's not like I can just break into an easy run. *sigh* I really need to talk to her about it, but... I know I'll just get another lecture about not trying hard enough, and end up crying for two days over it. I dunno...

9) THE YARD. Mom has decided this summer that she's sick of the back and front yard (what little we have of them, this is just a townhouse after all), and wants them to look really nice. So we've all been working on the yard for the last month, putting down sod and seeding and watering and pulling up weeds. Also, in the front yard we lined the sidewalk with quartz stones, with solar lights along the other side. Then next to the door we planted a little cedar tree, with more quarts around it. Yep.

10) ROLEPLAY. I haven't been rping as much lately, with everything IRL. I was supposed to be back from hiatus at TV like a month ago. I really need to get back there before people get sick of it and I get kicked out.

I have, however, been rping some zombie!apocalypse-verse Kingdom Hearts with Michi over email. It's hilarious and fun. Plus RikuRoku, which makes me happeh. :D And I've been rping with my bb Kiin over at [ profile] losechesters, which is a comm Kiin set up for us for "Winchestertastical" roleplay. I'm Sam and she's Dean and basically it's just for the sake of crack. It's SO much fun. Which reminds me, I need to think up another post for there... >.>;
senashenta: (Dreams)

I finally got around to dying and styling Nazoko's wig. Her hair is actually supposed to be cherry red, but at least it's not blonde anymore. It's kind of coppery. Anyway, it'll do until I can get her the wig I actually want for her. Her eyes are also supposed to be orange, but... I can't find orange eyes. .__.;; So she's borrowing Tet-chan's red ones.

Yeah, I was supposed to go to bed an hour ago, but my allergies are trying to murder me, so instead I'm sitting up being miserable and watching The Daily Show. I love this show, but Lewis Black is on tonight and he srsly grates on my nerves. >>; Ah well.
senashenta: (For Now A Sandwich)

My Mom's dog, looking VERY HAPPEH. He had massively evil redeye, and then when I tried to fix it, it turned out like this. >>;

Today just for the sake of randomness, I give you photos of the bracelets I've done the last few days. YAY.


Mom and I went to Huntsville on Thursday, and did what was supposed to be window shopping but turned into real shopping. >.> I got some more birds for my collection (I'll take pics of them some time to share), and then we went into a bead store and I spent like $70. -.-;; And then of course we went into the Nutty Chocolatier, soooooo... >___>;;

EDIT: Also, wtf this morning I woke up and my beta fish Teal... was not in his bowl. @__@ He is still MIA. I think he jumped out during the night and most likely met an untimely end via one of the cats. Poor Teal! TT~~~TT RIP my fishy buddy!
