Today I took the cat into the ~great outdoors~ on a leash and she seemed confident so I let her wander around. It turned out she was beelining to under a car in the parking lot. Justin tried to pull her out using the leash and the harness came off. Had to tempt her out with food. Traumatic experience. Won't be taking her anywhere except open fields from now on.

I finished the safety report for the city. 300 hours of video footage reviewed in total, I hope the city's departmental purchase order is forwarded to me soon so I can get paid.

 It makes sense, you see. He spends a lot of time attached to his charging platform (computer chair), he is actively contributing to the hastening of the machine uprising (by working for software companies), eats a lot of meat (clearly preparing to process organics like the Tripods)

Then he passed me and when nobody was around and he said "beep boop"

As promised, the scratching post. THAT I BUILT.

I dreamed I was on a bus, with Jayasai, Marsha, and someone else. The bus layout was strange, like first-class airline seats crammed into a Greyhound. We were going to Quebec. She needed to stop to fulfill a prescription because the bus's air conditioning was broken. The pharmacy had green walls. 

Today, I built a scratching post for my (nearly my) cat, and I thought about the past.

Specifically, about one of my friends (if you could call someone you haven't spoken to in years because you're too embarrassed to face them at group reunions), their blog that I really should not have read, and their upcoming nupitals. Shit, I'm creepy. And then, a lot of the things that seem important at one point in time lose their importance, often for the better, but I thought that there was some sadness in that. But that's part of growing up, and I think there are a hundred thousand movies and games and songs that say it better than I do. So to conclude, growing up is hard, and sometimes watching other people grow up is harder. On the other hand Justin grew out of his "Soos-lookalike" phase and his wallet chain phase, and eventually my body caught up with my head, so it's not all bad.  

The scratching post raw materials included:
  • Plywood (slightly warped) (free!)  
  • Nails, screws, washers, staples (free!)
  • A wee bit of carpet ($5.99) 
  • 3/8" diameter sisal rope ($30 for 150ft) (I think I could have gotten cheaper if I used 1/4" rope but 3/8" has better texture)
  • L-brackets and more screws and stuff ($3) 
I'm happy with how it's turning out but I won't be done until later. 

Also, T-swizzle will be releasing new stuff on Friday, I am very excited. I remember where I was the first time I watched the MV for Wildest Dreams.

This is definitely the most lovely cat ever. Justin told me she climbed on top of the fridge today. I'm so proud!

I got the formal job offer after some ulcer-inducing email correspondence. It ain't over till the fat lady sings, they said, so I couldn't turn down the other job until I'd received paperwork for the other one... This job will allow me to move west to Guelph/Mississauga where my $$$ will stretch farther (though not as far as if I were to stay at home...) 

Also I believe I will be able to keep the foster cat, live with Justin the potato, and other stuff.

Anyways I'm pretty happy but there's some administrative stuff to sort out first. It will be nice to dream again.

Either the other candidates they interviewed were rubbish

Or I'm even more charming than I thought I was! 

Or they like puns!

2017.08.10 14:15 - What I was actually doing
Apart from falling down the Hawke/Varric rabbit hole, this weekend, I fostered a kitty, and tested whether or not car windows have a safety sensor like elevators by sticking my finger in the window while it was rolling. They don't have sensors and I bruised my finger.  

This is Fefe the foster cat. 

Fefe has already mastered the following skills: 
  • Opening sliding closet doors
  • Meowing and banging on the door hard enough to wake the humans up at 3AM
  • Headbutts
  • Getting head scratches
