senashenta: (Carousel Twins)
Happy Halloween! ...yeah, I just wanted to say that. :D;

I actually dressed up for the first time in about six years, just for the hell of it. All I did tonight was hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, but what the heck, right? I cobbled a demon outfit together at the last minute; my red contacts and long red wig, my custom fit fangs and then around 5pm I wandered downtown and spent a whole $1 on a pair of red horns. Then I just wore a black tank top and a black-and-white skirt with my knee boots.

Also, Aya kept me company for half of the time I handed out candy. ^_^ He's such a calm snake, I took him out of his terrarium and wrapped him around my neck and he just chilled out there and basically didn't move for an hour. When he started to get restless I put him away again.

But having Aya around my neck? Between that and the red contacts, pretty much every kid who came to the door was like O.O at me. XD; One little boy was SO EXCITED about the snake, he asked if it was an anaconda and I honestly wanted to say yes just because he was so thrilled over the idea. Haha.

Anyhoo, so when I went downtown to buy the horns I was in the rest of my costume (sans Aya, though, he wouldn't have done well out and about like that as it's quite cold out nowadays) and I picked up a few things from Liquidation World, then went to the dollar store for the horns, then on the way back I stopped at J&K to get more rats for Aya and Opal.

lol Sandy and Dave were in today (they pretty much always are), and they both loved my hair/eyes/horns. Apparently cherry red really suits me, which is kind of true because I'm so pale. xD; Sandy wanted to know where she could get contacts like that and so that lead to a conversation about conventions while Dave headed off to get my rats. Man, do I love that store and the people there, you have no idea. ♥

While I was there I also got a hammock for Ven. A couple of days ago I was looking at my little rattie in his cage and wondering why in the hell he was in the small rat cage when I actually have two much larger rabbit cages currently available? .__.; So I went and got those cages, zip-tied them together into one really nice, big, lofty cage, and transferred him over.

At first it was just him and his food dish and his plastic hide, but today I picked up some things to add; the hammock, like I said, and also a big climbing rope and a honey-treat bell that hangs from the roof of the cage. Technically, the honey-treat is supposed to be for birds, but there's nothing in it that Ven can't have and I've found in the past that bird toys and treats make really fun additions for rats; and rats are so smart that they need lots of enrichment and things to play with or they go stir crazy.

I'm still thinking about getting him a bell toy as well, since Yuki and 'Nashi LOVED theirs way back when I had them. (They were my first two rats, for those who remember or care at all.) But Ven's cage is in the bedroom and idk... Yuki and 'Nashi used to flail around with that bell so much they kept me awake even when they were all the way in the living room. XD;; So I guess we'll see.

Right now Ven is still feeling very overwhelmed with all the changes, I think. He's climbed around a bit, but spent most of today hiding in his bed going >O.O< while I fixed his cage up and tidied the room. ^^;; He'll settle in nicely over the next couple of days, though. ♥

Am still considering picking up a second rat, too. Some of my rats in the past have preferred to live on their own, but based on the way Ven's personality is, I think he'd be happier to have a companion. Maybe I'll go and pick out another little male next time I'm downtown. (Then I shall name him Terra! 8D; /KH geek.)

Anyway, so that was my day.

OH. Except that I picked up antibiotics for the cats today as well. They won't cure the colds everyone's got, but being on them will keep them from getting pneumonia or other infections until the rest clears up, which is really important. So that's a big relief.

And right now I'm writing this and watching The Zombie Diaries, which will then be followed by The Zombie Diaries 2 and finally The Howling Reborn, because I can't think of a better way to spend the rest of my Halloween night than chilling with zombie and werewolf movies. =D

EDIT: And Z's battery is magically holding a charge again. It hasn't done that in months. .__.;;

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out.

Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life that you're interested in or curious about. It can be anything from my favorite possession to anything else. Leave your requests as a comment to this entry, I'll snap the pictures and post them in the next post/comments.
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: (Even Darkness Must Pass)
Been a while since I posted. Haha, I spent so many years writing in this thing every single day that lately when I haven't been writing in it much it seems weird. I go to post and realize it's been ten days (or whatever) since my last post and am surprised by it.

But recently I haven't been up to much... I'm actually quite sick right now (it's really TMI though, so I'm not going to elaborate.) I spent all last week trying to get through to my family doctor and failing, so I think I'm going to have to just break down and go to the Emergency Room, and probably have to endure at least one rather uncomfortable test that I can think of.

In the mean time, I was on hiatus at RY and TV, but my health always sucks and I can't be on hiatus forever, so I came off at RY yesterday and plan to come off at TV tomorrow. Being so sick the last while has really sapped my energy though; I'm not getting any nutrients or anything from my food right now (when I can even eat), and I've probably been taking too many pain pills. I've practically been living on cream-of-wheat because it's so bland and easy to digest. I still don't really feel up to much rping, but it's not fair to camp on characters if I'm just going to be away all the time. Plus I have to get back into helping with mod stuff at RY.

Anyway. Today I gave Sora and Riku a bath for the first time. They flailed around a little and generally went D8 at me. It was adorable. But they did need a bath. And I'm hoping if I do it often enough they'll learn to like playing in the water, or at least to tolerate it. They really liked being wrapped up together in a towel afterward though. ♥

I finished Foundation yesterday. It's the new Heralds of Valdemar book by Mercedes Lackey. I didn't realize how much I'd missed Valdemar until I started reading it (lol two days ago, I read for like 12 hours straight. XD;) Maybe now I can try writing some fic again? It'd be nice to work through my four-years-and-going writer's block. But I'm not holding my breath. Not being able to concentrate to write and draw is part of being bi-polar, and just reading a new Valdemar novel won't magically cure me of that. I wish though!

Today I found a copy of Razorback in region 1 NTSC format on ebay. Dad and I have both been searching for that movie for months now, and all we can find are copies on ebay that are region 2 PAL, which won't play on North American DVD players or TVs. So I'm hoping the seller will ship to Canada, but if he replies to my question about it and says no, Maddie says I can get it shipped to her/Chloe's place and then send them the money to forward it. >D

And now random pictures just for the hell of it:

Loki and Tri have a night of drinking, apparently. )

Nazoko. Still looking like Bella. I need the right wig and eyes for her, desperately. )

EDIT: It's getting pretty close to the day I'm taking Loki in to get his back claws done. The closer it gets to time, the more bad I feel about it, even though it's for a medical reason. Every time he comes and cuddles with me, or purrs at me I feel guilty. DX
senashenta: (Panda Mahiru)

Riku. ♥

Also, Chicken Cacciatore from a couple days ago. It turned out SO GOOD. =w=
senashenta: (Too Cute For Words)
Hehe, I promised Sora pics and look I'm finally delivering! ♥ He's so adorable and I luff him to bits. He's not afraid of the cats at all... he actually chases Neko, it's hilarious. XD; What a chickenshit cat. <33

More pics be here. )

He reminds me of Yuki so much, except Sora has about 50x more energy than Yuki ever did. Then again, when I got Yuki he was much older than when I got Sora, so I suppose that's probably the major difference.

Right now he's in his cage making eyes at me because I haven't given him any treats yet today. >>; He has me so whipped.

EDIT: Oh, btw, at the Petsmart the other day I almost got another rat to be Sora's friend. Around here you can't get anything other than hooded rats (and occasionally albino ones like Kori was), but I really like solid-coloured ones, and the Petsmart had the most adorable grey-blonde one. I wanted to bring him home so badly, but the cage Sora is in right now isn't big enough for two rats, and I don't have the space in here for any of my bigger ones. Too bad. I would have named him Roxas too. XD;

EDIT #2: OMG there's an RY rp!secret today and I'm in it! ♥ Along with Reppy, Maddie, Meev, Chloe and Nikki. X3 ilu anon! <3
senashenta: (Tooru Is UNIMPRESSED)
I wish I could find my camera. I just had Sora out to explore and I could have gotten the most adorable picture of him and Neko touching noses. I love that my cats as so good with the other animals. ♥ The only thing they do is chase rat's tails on occasion, which is just them playing, not them being aggressive.

Actually, back when I first got Yuki and 'Nashi, Tri used to play with their tails through the bars of their cage if they were dangling out. Then one day he was sitting on a table next to the cage, with his tail draping over the corner of it, and 'Nashi climbed up, grabbed his tail, and yanked. He scared the bejeesus out of Tri. It was hilarious. XD; No one can ever say rats don't have a sense of humor.

Anyway, Sora is settling in alright, but you can tell he's still not used to being outside of a cage. When I take him out, he finds a hidey-hole (under my hair at the back, in the crook of my arm, etc.) and ventures out a bit, then scampers back really fast. But each time he goes a little farther, and I give him scratches and crackers for being a brave boy, so I'm sure he'll be fine. I am pleased that he trusts me enough to be his safe place though. :3

Other than that... still bloody sick. I just keep getting worse. All my sinuses are infected (except possibly in my left cheek, I'm not sure about that one entirely), I've got a barking cough, a massive headache, a sore throat and the on-and-off fever I've had the last few days. Also, my piercings are all still infected. >.<;

Oh, and my jaw is stiffening up again. -.-;; Stupid Tetanus. Stupid Lockjaw. Go away already, it's been three years!

I'm medicating myself to the eyeballs with painkillers, aspirin, and sinus pills/nasal spray, but I think I'll probably have to get the doctor to give me a prescription for antibiotics when I'm in there in a couple of weeks. Blegh. I hate this time of year.
senashenta: (Booth & Bones)
1) I have seven piercings in my ears, and all seven are infected right now. Two on my right ear were bothering me a bit yesterday (oh crap, it's 4:49 am so I guess it was two days ago) and when I got up this morning it was way worse and every one of them is all inflamed and swollen and sore. >.<; I hate being allergic to metals. Every couple months my ears flare up because of it. I'll have to dig out my silver hoops to wear to keep the piercings open until they heal again. -__-;

2) Sinus infection. I still has it. Bah. In fact, need more pills after I'm done this entry.

3) On Wednesday, I was hit on by a deaf man. SO AMUSED, because the whole thing was pantomimed because I don't know sign language beyond the basic alphabet. XD It was epic and awesome. Too bad he was like twice my age. >>;

4) Still unpacking, but I'm well on my way to being done. THANK GOD. I'm so sick of not having everything organised. I like clutter (I'm not really comfy unless there's clutter because of being bi-polar and borderline OCD) but I HATE mess and right now that's the point I'm still at. DX

5) Yesterday, the cable guy came to install the digital outlets and everything. I have cable in my room now! ANIMAL PLANET! \o/ DISCOVERY CHANNEL! HEALTH CHANNEL! SPACE! I just need the Anime Network and I'll be set. :3 And the ability to run cable Internet to my room now, WHICH I AM DOING ASAP NEXT WEEK. FUCK YOU WIRELESS.

6) Sora is settling in well, he's eating and drinking fine and getting comfy with his cage and everything. He's still a little nervous though, which I expected. ♥ He likes to sit with me while I watch TV, in the crook of my arm~

6) Tonight was the night everyone poisoned Rufus at RY. Kyo got in on that because he's the head of security (other than the Turks). In evacuating the building he got gassed a little, but it's no big deal really, he's just coughing because of it. However, he got stuck with Agon for most of it, and Agon out of nowhere told him about his thing with Zelos. ;A; Kyo is pissed off, and heartbroken again, and now if he keeps working at Shinra he has to deal with both Sephiroth and Agon. I can see him quitting some time soon. For the time being he's going to stay with Vergil and Dante, since he lives with Zelos and doesn't want to go back there. ;__;

7) Mel, Bonnie and I are working on a new, as-of-unnamed fantasy rp. It's going to be AWESOME. That's all on that for now.

8) Must get my Taedium Vitae and Moulin Noir apps finished this weekend! >| <-- determined faise!

senashenta: (Kadaj)
I named my rattie Sora instead of Tasuku. He looks more like a Sora. Plus he's adorable and an absolute sweetheart. ♥ Still no photos though. I promise some later.

Today I got my old modem back to Rogers, so they won't charge me for it. And Mom and I talked to them about upgrading the cable so that I can have Animal Planet and Discovery, and my brother can have Space.

Tomorrow is chiropractor, groceries, and I have to drop some stuff off with my case worker at the ODSP office. Fun stuff.
senashenta: (We Be DORKY Today)
I got a rat today. X3 My brother and I went out to Walmart and while we were out there I got some rabbit food at the pet store so I had a look at the rats while I was there. Thay had three females (one black hooded, two cream hooded) and one male who was dark brown/black hooded. The girls were all completely spun and wouldn't let me handle them without spazzing, but the boy was so calm and nice. So I got him. ♥

I haven't named him yet, but I'm thinking about calling him Tasuku. Tasuku is the name of my/[ profile] cassandracsenta's OC rat Furuba character. Before, one of my rats was called Yuki, so I kind of like the idea of naming the new one after a Jyuunishi, even if he's an OC. My brother wants me to call him Vinny for some reason. .__.;

Anyway~ he's adorable and I'll take photos when I find my camera. It's still packed away somewhere. XD;
senashenta: (Tet-chan :: DRAMA~! lol)
Good news: MOVING FINISHED. It took three days, but I am officially done with that place! HAH. Still unpacking, obviously. The cats are much more comfy here now, though Tri is still very jumpy. He'll settle in though. Also, today I actually had the dog and Neko in my lap at the same time, which is a miracle, as Possum is afraid of other animals. >>;

Good news 2: My brother sent me a link to episode one of Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro. I am intrigued.

Good news 3: ;>.> <.<; I'm getting a rat again. Possibly tomorrow, but probably next week.

Neutral news: INTERNET TOMORROW. HOPEFULLY. I have to buy a card thing for my PC, and then my brother says if he can he'll install it for me. I'm actually going to be piggybacking on Mom's router. Anyway, if Trunks can't install it, I'll have to take it to the corner, in which case no 'Net until Monday at the earliest. So hopefully he can.


Bad News 2: Sinus infection. -__-;; As soon as it gets cold my immune system officially goes to florida or something. Not that it's super active normally anyway. But still. My head is throbbing, my sinuses hurt and I've used up a whole box of kleenex just today. ><; If it doesn't go away soon though, I have an appointment with the doctor in three weeks anyway.

And now I'm off to medicate myself to the eyeballs and try to actually get a decent night's sleep. Whoo.

Doh... -.-;

May. 4th, 2007 10:02 pm
senashenta: (Babbling Babbling Babbling)
Today I was in Walmart and poked about the beads for the right ones to do the tassels on Axel's coat. Yey. But I couldn't find quite the right size/shape/color. After some searching I did manage to find some brown wooden ones that were pretty close, so I figured meh, and decided to get those and just paint them.

Thus, I brought them back home, la~di~daa, and set about painting. Black. Black. WTF BRAIN I HATE U. ><; I painted them all, and was all smug about it and happy... then went "aw crap!" because they actually need to be silver. -___-;;

So I started repainting them. Right now the first coat of the first batch is drying, and Axel!pony is mocking me from where he's standing on the table, waiting for his tassles, the jerk.

I guess and-and-between painting beads for the rest of the night I'll get to work on Hikaru and Fuu from my Magic Knight Rayearth ponies. I can't start Umi until I get around to taking her downstairs and scrubbing the stupid glitter off Merriweather's symbol/forehead... >>;

Other than that, hmm... I bought spaghetti squash today while I was doing groceries. XD I'm so looking forward to making non-carb pasta with it. Haha~

The pet store had the cutest bunnies. ;.; I mibbled at them. One was chocolate brown with a white blaze down her nose and white socks on her front feet, and one was orange-blonde with a white blaze. The other two were solid colored Rexes. So cute! X3

I can't have any more rabbits. At least until I move to a bigger place. >>;;;

Speaking of rabbits... does anyone on my f-list happen to know much about them? I'm off asking questions at the rabbit comm because they often treat me like I'm stupid or irresponsible for little things. I take good care of all my babies, dammit!

Anyway, are Rex rabbits more inclined toward behavior problems? Just out of curiosity... because I have five rabbits, and four different breeds; the only breed I have two of is Rex (Phantom and Pan), and those are the two that I seem to have difficulties with.

Phantom isn't so bad really, but she's quite standoffish and will nip and grunt if you try to pick her up (she prefers to just be left to her own devices), and Pan chews everything she can get her teeth on. Pauper, Phoenix and Pagan don't give me almost any trouble at all (aside from the occasional bunny antics), so I was just wondering if it had to do with the breed.

I dunno...

EDIT: The store also had the cutest ratties~~ but I promised Kori I wouldn't bring any more babies home until he was gone, because he's old and crotchity now and it wouldn't be fair to him. XD;;
senashenta: (Zodiac Cat and Rat)
Today I was supposed to go over to Mom's and do some cleaning... and I totally slept through my alarm instead. -__-; Jeez Sena. So I'm going over tomorrow, and today I spent a while cleaning around here instead. Did cages and vacuuming and stuff.

It's been getting warmer outside, which is great, but starting about this time of year for two to three months, my allergies get to be really really bad. I go through a box of allergy pills every couple of days, which I'm sure can't be good for me. =.= But I mean bwuh~ I can't breathe through my nose, and my eyes are all itchy! Stupid springtime! ><;;

I guess I need to start running all my air filters more often again...

Anyway, so the buns and the squirrels and the rats are all clean and shiny again; I gave another litter box to the girl bunnies in the big cage, since they've recently decided that the corner opposite from their original litter box was good for using as a bathroom. Mrr. Now there are boxes in both corners! HAHA, I win!

The girls were all like \o/ and spent about three hours digging in it after I put it in, lol.

Maa ne, I was playing with Yuki and Kori for a bit after I cleaned their cage, and poor Yuki is starting to lose weight... that's what happened to 'Nashi before he died. But Yuki's about two and a half years old now, so he's really getting on. Even Kori's two years old. Poor guys, all they have the energy to do is eat and sleep anymore.

And Yuki's got a stripe down his back where he's losing hair. I didn't know rats could go bald in old age, but apparently it's possible...

I'll miss them when they're gone, and I think I probably will get more rats; I've really enjoyed having them, they're so smart and have such personalities on them. They've just been a lot of fun to have around. :)


I went at last night and painted the kanji on the jyuunishi ponies in my Furuba set (so like, 75% of them)... and did it all with toothpicks. Detail brushes? What're those? XD; For the most part they weren't too bad, but Yuki's was a pain, and I did Ayame's three times and it still just looks like squiggles. -_-;;

Now I'm starting my Gravi ones, and my KH ones tomorrow after I borrow Mom's printer to print some pictures of the characters to use for reference. >>;

If there is someone on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Oh, and my second Ouran art book dealie came in today. The first one got here last week. (I like the one that came in today better [/random] lol.) They were both a little bit bent in the mail. ><; I guess that's what you get with books that aren't hardcover...

And I got a Christmas card from Nana-mun, too~ ♥ DIE OF THE GLITTER ATTACK. X3

I had to amble down to the pharmacy today to pick up prescriptions (Apo-Carbamezapine, Ratio-Citalopram and Avandia), and while I was down that way I wandered through the Dollarama. (I should never be allowed in there, seriously.)

I spent like $25 on stuff to send to people in my next round of P.O.S. boxes, and craft supplies for myself. XD;

Why is Dollarama such a good dollar store??


And while I was there, I got some treats for the rats/cats (mostly the rats); they're these pork-link chew-things, actually meant for dogs, but I find that dog treats are excellent for the ratties, they love them. :)

Anyway, I gave Yuki and Kori a couple to munch on, and since Loki was giving me big PRETTY PLEASE MOMMY eyes, I gave one to him, too... and he was like WHOO!, and took off with it-- and now he doesn't seem to know what to do with it, lol. They're supposed to be chew-toys, so they're hard and he doesn't seem to get that.

Right now he's nosing it around the floor trying to figure out what to do. Ahhh, Loki. <3

And So~

Ahhh, still tired~ =.=

Oh well, not much I can do really...

I have stuff to do tomorrow, still trying to figure out my schedule.

It's mostly just things around here, but they need to be done; I have to clean animal cages (which only takes about a half an hour), and I have several cages that've been emptied out and organised lately that need to go into storage in the garage for now. And the old coffee table needs to go down there, too, but I think I'll need to get someone to help me with that...

Mmmm, I'm looking at these cages and thinking about the cute little black baby rats they have at the pet store right now... ehhhhh, I can't I can't! At least not until Yuki and Kori are gone! They're old men now and wouldn't appreciate me bringing annoying baby ratties into the house, I'm sure. >_> They'd never talk to me again. ;~; lol.

But if I get the cages moved into storage, I'll be less tempted, so it must be done.

Also dishes and stuff.

And I will be up on time to chat with Cassandra-san!! And then after that I'll chat with Kao-mun, and then we're gonna rp with Tama-mun for a bit. Which will be interesting, since it's with Suzumiya instead of Tamaki. XD;;

We will all play nice. *snort* Yeah right.
senashenta: (Durr...)
Wow, my hands have been shaking really badly all day. It's been a while since I've had to deal with this... I really didn't miss it. =_=;; Hopefully it'll go away again by tomorrow, but who knows? It's a symptom of the stupid Chronic Fatigue, and that's been bad lately, too, so... yeah...

Other than that, today was grocery day so I got out of the house for a while. The store was really crowded, though, and I hate that. It makes me freak out. And it hailed today, really hard; the hail was pretty big, too. But at least we didn't get 18 inches of snow or whatever they got south of us. ^_^;;

And today I did some tidying around here. Lee took my air conditioner this afternoon, so that he can clean it out for me (it's full of cat/rabbit/rat/etc. hair and just needs to be opened up and cleaned out), and I transferred Yuki and Kori over into the old rabbit cage, which is much more roomy than the one they were in. They really like it, and I'm glad.

Poor Yuki is so old. >^-^;; But he seems to be feeling fine, nonetheless.


Kisa isn't feeling so good, though. She's developed a lump under one of her front legs, just like Tohru-chan did before she died. And unfortunately, much as I love my mice, I don't have the money to spend a hundred dollars to take her to the vet. Especially since she's getting pretty old, too, and I didn't expect her to make it to Christmas even before the lump appeared...

'Nashi died last night.

Thanks to [ profile] jarrn for suggesting trying him on NutriCal to help him gain some weight, but unfortunately he passed away before I could even go out and buy any. It's probably better anyway, he was a really old rattie...

After I (finally) ate something yesterday, I felt quite sick for a while. Duh. But after I got up this morning I felt much better. Now I must eat dinner, or I'll forget again. ^_^;

Mmmmm... 'Nashi's lost a ton of weight in the last couple of days, and today he's looking pretty off. I hope he'll be okay... but honestly, he's pretty old now. For a rat, anyway. I've had him for almost a year and a half, and he was about six months old when I got him, so...

Poor 'Nashi. I'm going to move him into another cage, sepparate from Kori and Yuki, and just keep him comfy. I think at this point that's the best I can do for him.


EDIT: Oh... and Mom says that she talked to Grandma, and she thinks she's going to take me up on my offer to stay with her for a couple of days. I'm not surprised, she really has a lot to deal with and it's going to be really hard for her, just knowing that she's alone in the house for the first time in 51 years. So some time in the next couple of weeks, Mom's going to take me up there.

senashenta: (ARGH!)
Last night Loki was puttering around by the rat's cage, and I don't know what he did to piss them off, but he got close enough for 'Nashi to give him a good bite. -_-;; He's got a tear in his left ear now-- it looks like 'Nashi bit him, and he pulled back, so the teeth went right through in a line out the side of the ear.

And of course, because it's his ear, it bled quite a bit. But I cleaned it out, and had a look (even though he didn't want me to poke at it), and it seems not too bad. It should heal up fine, though I think he'll always have a bit of a V there. People will think he got into a fight.

Yeah, well, he did. With a rat. A rat in a cage. And he lost. :P

But I'm keeping an eye on it, just in case. If it looks like it's getting infected or anything I'll have to take him to the vet.

You know what's kind of funny, though? A few months ago, Tri and Neko were playing and Tri ended up with a similar nick on his left ear (which healed up fine and dandy in about a week)... so now Tri and Loki match! ^_^; lol.

I haven't slept a wink tonight, and my apartment is now in complete and utter disarray. =.=;;

Because I couldn't sleep, I decided to keep myself busy (instead of just laying around staring at the ceiling), and put together as much of the new bunny cage as I could, given that I don't have enough NIC squares for the whole thing, chloroplast for the bottom, grass mats for the floor/shelves, litter boxes to go in it, another water bottle, or a hay dealie. Yep. So it's half done now.

But then I was like "well now what am I going to do? I have this huge half-finished cage, and nowhere to put it!", since I hadn't rearranged yet.

Thusly, I rearranged.

One of my dresser's got moved out of the way, and the other got moved over to make room for the cage (which is going along that wall, next to the window). This, of course, involved unplugging several appliances (lamp/clock/air filter/radio/etc), and plugging them back in once the dresser was situated again. Both of them are now empty as well, and all my clothes are piled unceremoniously on my round coffee table, awaiting sorting and putting away.

The smaller dresser that was moved away from the wall completely was then wheeled over to the far cubby hole, which is actually fits in nicely. There's storage behind it, and it's still accessable, so I can still use it for storage as well. Plus, it hides all the clutter and boxes. But of course, I forgot to pack my boxes away back there before I put the dresser in... so it came out again, then the cubby hole got packed with stuff before it returned to it's new home.

Yuki, 'Nashi and Kori, whose cage used to be where the little dresser is now, had been moved out of the way, and are currently sitting on their table, pending further movement. They'll eventually be going where Phoenix and Pauper's cage is now, once the girls get moved into the new one. ^_^;

Phantom, meanwhile, is staying where she is for the time being. And she was not happy with all the movement around her, by the way; she kept making loud thumping noises the whole time I was shuffling stuff around. lol. Phantom just doesn't deal well with change. She's very set in her ways. ^_~

So, later today (or tomorrow, since I'm starting to get tired now), I have some spare cages to move down into storage in the garage, and I need to reorganize the other cubby hole to fit in some of the plastic bins of my collection (the rest is already in the cubby behind the dresser). Then I have to put away all my clothes again, and decide if I want to keep all the videos/books that were stored in the big dresser until I emptied everything out up here, or if I want to send them down to the garage for storage, too.


And of course, I have a couple of boxes of odds and ends that are supposed to go on the shelves above the one dresser/new cage if and/or when I ever manage to get around to putting them up again.

Oh, and a couple of days ago I found some laundry cupboards at Walmart; they're two feet tall, so they'll fit along my short walls, and were on clearance, so I put a set on layaway, and I need to pick them up in a week or so. When I get them here and put together, I need to reorganize again to find somewhere to put them. XD

Do I know how to make things complicated, or what?
