the real cause of road rage : radio commercials

I swear that the commercials they play on the radio these days are driving me crazy. Each morning as we listen to the best morning show in the world (Terry & Ted on CHOM 97.7) on the way to work they play the most god awful ads. Really. All these stupid ads fro insurance or cars but they are just done so irritatingly. Either the writing is bad or the voices are grating.

It’s a good thing I am not driving because they make me so angry and then I yell even more at the other drivers on the road who obviously have no clue how to drive.

Just sayin’.

Oh and in the Huzzah! News : I finally had my office a/c installed in the window last night (or early this morning, not sure when). So I will NOT melt today (which is GOOD because it’s supposed to be 32°C before humidity!!!) I am a happy cool cat!

just call me Lobster Cat

When I get too warm and feel like I am boiling… I turn red. My arms, my face, my neck and my legs.. all red. Not sunburnt, no. Just red like a boiled lobster. Whee. Fun.

It is so bloody warm in my office, in the building actually, that I feel sick. Apparently we’re getting airconditioners at some point. I WANT IT NOW DAMNITALL!!! I hate heat. HATE! HATE! HATE! And humidity! GO AWAY!

The inlaws have turned the central a/c on, but they have it down so low that you can’t tell it’s on and you can’t feel the cold. Or so I think. According to them I am wrong. My mil actually had the heat on last night in the downstairs bathroom while she took her shower because she was too cold. I was sitting in the basement in a tank top and cut offs and no shoes and I was WARM. Sleeping isn’t going so well either. Sigh. I’ll get through this… I will be happy when my little office window is taken up by a huge air conditioner.

So in the Cat is Brilliant news… I sent out an email last week to a bunch of professors letting them know they can pick up some stuff in my office at their “earliest continence”.

Oh, dear.

I didn’t even realize this until one of them phoned me today and laughed about it. Oopsie. Stupid spell checker… I thought I chose the right word. I always spell convienience wrong.

I will go hide under my desk for a bit now.. it’s probably cooler there anyhow.

cold veggie pizza and bacon – it’s a breakfast of champions, yo!

You know it’s bad when you leave the movie theatre and want to warn everyone waiting in line to see the next showing of the movie NOT to go see it.

I’m not going to spoil it for anyone… but I will say, don’t rush out and spend the obscene amount of money that a movie theatre will charge you on this one. Just get the final X-Men on DVD in like, two months.

And Cindy-Lou? I’m never, ever setting foot on that terrifying red bridge. You hear me??

Aside from the few hours of my life I want back from Friday night… this weekend has been nice. The only downside is that Shawn has had to work all weekend. Our original plan was to spend Saturday night in Ottawa since Chelsea was running a 10Km runny thing and two other friends of ours were walking a 32 Km marathon this morning. Sadly every bloody hotel/motel/whatever was booked solid. Probably due to the 22, 000 people apparently participating in this marathony weekend. And then as we were trying to figure out what else to do… Shawn was asked to work all weekend. Problem solved. 🙂

So this now means that my shoulders and knees (and lower legs) are burnt to crisps. Why? I decided it was so nice out yesterday that I would bathe the dogs. Ha! I didn’t realize my shoulder was red until this morning, it’s not much I don’t think as it isn’t really hurting me, but it’s a little sore when I would run it on the bed. My play was to only wash Annie in the little tub, with the hose, yesterday. I didn’t think I could do Jinx on my own – he can been a fiesty one! But he kept playing with the water in the hose and sticking his nose in the the little tub to see what was going on. He was almost as wet as Annie and I were by the end of her bath… so I grabbed him, hooked the leash on him and plopped him in the rubber tub. Hehheh. He wasn’t so happy then, let me tell you.

firestar digestOnce the two of them were free and running about in the back yard to dry off, I was covered in fur, mud and soaked through from the hose and shaking dogs. It was lovely. So off we went to tie them in the front of the house (where there is ample shade for them to sit in and still dry from the heat) and I took my new and exciting Firestar! comic digest and went to read on the front porch. All of me was in the shade except from my knees down. This of course has led to me having burnt my translucent skin to a crisp. All night my knees have been itching me like crazy!! ACK! I didn’t think I was out there long enough to burn. I didn’t have my legs up the entire time. Oh, well. It would be better if it wasn’t in an odd pattern. *sigh*

Oh, this made me think of something – Jill!!! Stay out of the sun down there in LA, you’ll be burnt to a crisp in no time!!! Kind of like this:

Today has been wasted though because I only woke up at twenty to eleven! Yikes!! I did not mean to sleep that late. I was up at 8 when Shawn left for work and was still sleepy, so I thought I would like there for a little longer. I was sure I’d be up before nine – because that’s just the way it works with me on weekends! But, no.

If it was restful sleep I wouldn’t be so upset. But it’s not. I’m back to having horrible nightmares, one of them had maggot/tape worm things all over our bed and pillows. Talk about horrifying. In fact that one kept recurring all night. Add to that the copious amounts of Veronica Mars we’ve been watching and those guys pop up a lot too. I think Weevil was my boyfriend in one of them. heehee. He’s a cutiepie.

As it is almost noon and the day is nice I should be out there (sitting in the SHADE) and enjoying it. I wish I had a book to read… oh wait! I do! Yay! I think I’ll go do that in a bit. First I need to finish my slice of cold pizza and see if I have any bacon left or if I fed it all to the dogs.. 😉

because in a few weeks she’s leaving me forever

(way to guilt trip, eh?)

Tonight we’re going to see the new X-Men movie. woot! We’re going with Chelsea. I think Shawn and I will be fighting over who gets to sit next to her. I do, of course. I am not supposed to let her have any popcorn because she’s in a 10K marathon thingy tomorrow. But I will sit there and eat my poppycorn and taunt her with every kernel because I am evile that way.

Two Fridays in a row Shawn and I are seeing a movie. The last movie we saw in the theatre? Underworld 2 (or whatever it was called). We’re party animals, we are.

turn back o man

Also… because I am SOOOOO excited….

I finally got Godspell on DVD!


… AND it was only $16.99 when the price tag said $32.99.

wooty woot!!

So so so so happy!!
