Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]

Reading geekchick's reviews of her Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs scents is making me really eager to get mine...They were shipped end of June, so if the Mail Gods are kind, I should see them today or tomorrow.



There are supposed to be flowers delivered to work for me, but they apparently haven't arrived yet. Le Sigh.


Funny how little my life has changed between yesterday and today. No, I didn't really expect it to, but I still thought it was worth commenting on.


I went out last night to buy the rodents a new cage, as the one they're currently living in has a broken catch on the side and can therefore not be lifted from the top. Because the local PetSmart is moving to a new location, their inventory is seriously depleted, and they had nothing between "well, that would be good for a hamster or a mouse, but not two full-grown rats" and "good for a rabbit, a guinea pig, or a ferret, but the girls would go right through the bars." I refuse to shop at the other big chain pet store because of a) reports on how they treat their small animals and b) firsthand sightings that indicate to me that said reports are correct. So now I'm trying to decide if the girls can wait until the end of the month when the new store opens, or if I should go to petsmart.com and buy something from there, sight unseen (pictures don't always give me a sense of an item's real size).


Over on metaquotes, a number of things have popped up about the London bombings. However, someone posted a mq about Pres. Bush falling off his bicycle. Someone else, in the comments, complained about how "Bush is so dumb" quotes aren't funny anymore.

This got me to thinking.

Didn't we have another president who wasn't exactly known for his coordination? And didn't he handle the treatment he got at the hands of the press with grace and poise? Didn't he generally exhibit a sense of humor about himself and the ribbing he took?

Which also got me to thinking that Gee-Dubya has also taken some ribbing about the fact that he's tried to kill himself on a regular basis, and that I haven't seen anything to suggest that he doesn't have a sense of humor about that particular attribute, no matter how often the press does or doesn't bring it up. As opposed to his "defender" on MQ, who does appear to be lacking just a bit in the humor department.

So, congratulations, poster on MQ - you made me think of something positive about a man who I generally believe shouldn't be running anything more complex than an electric toothbrush, let alone an entire country.

(Whether or not President Ford was actually coordinated is beyond the point; also, it amuses me for no good reason that he was also Republican.)

(For that matter, didn't GW's dad puke on a Chinese diplomat? With all the things GW has done wrong, I don't think he's done that...)

Japanese diplomat, I believe. Possibly the Prime Minister.

Hm. Time to do a news search, I guess, but I think you're right.

There is an independent pet store on Wells Ave that caters to birds and reptiles, I think they have a selection of rodents as well.
It's been there since I was a kid, I think it's called the Pettin' Place.
It's on the west side, north of Wonder.

Cool, I'll go check them out, then. Thanks!

I'd much rather support an independent than a chain any day.

Flowers from whom?

My assumption is my parents, to congratulate me on the job, but I don't actually know.

You have a male harem, don't you? DON'T YOU? Admit it.

Dood, if I had a male harem you KNOW I'd be sharing pictures.

I got 10 wosies and a balloon that says "congratulations." From Mom & Dad.

Aw, that's cute. :)

I went to the site the day you mentioned it in your LJ and went crazy over some of the described scents. I am a HUGE fan of jasmine and spice and can never find anything that is just right. Soooo I ordered a set of samples that day. I can't wait til they get here. After reading the reviews on the site for the scents I chose, I think I will be very happy.
