The cable modem is finally up and running! =) It seems almost unreal, after so many months of wrestling with the cable company and weak signals and all that junk. It's soooo nice not having to dial in anymore. This'll really come in handy when school starts up again.

Also, I just finished my seven day-long stretch at the store, and have two whole days off before I must return. ^_^ I had to find creative ways to keep myself awake during the last few shifts there, but it's all over now and that's what matters.

You want an example? Of course you do. On Monday, I was miserable and really didn't think I was going to stay awake long enough to sell something to the one interested customer I was likely to see in those six hours, so I decided to make a run for Starbucks. I get coffee and tea from there during the school year all the time, but this was the first time I'd gone since about mid-April. I indulged in my usual specialty coffee, a mocha (my other usual is tea, Earl Grey, hot), which is loaded with my two caffeine essentials, espresso and chocolate. Since I haven't had this stuff in months, I was all a-jitter and hyper for the rest of the day, hehe. I finally cracked open my notebook and wrote up a storm- a largely babbly and incoherent storm, I'm chagrined to confess, but at least it was a start. Hell, I didn't even want to go home when my shift ended, I just wanted to sit there and keep on plugging along.

And I got good news about my kitty!

What kitty, you ask? Yeah, I suppose it's not a widely related story, so here's the short of it: a while back, I took in a kitten that would have been euthanised if no one had. He was such a cute and playful little sweetie, but I had to give him up after only a few days 'cause there was no chance in hell my mom would let me keep him. My sister took him to a co-worker of hers, who works with animal rescue and has cats running all over her house on a regular basis, hehe. She recently managed to find him a good home with a couple who already has one other cat. He's a very social little tyke, so I'm glad he'll have a big sister.

And here's a pic of the little sweetie, whom I still refer to as my "baby" and still miss lots, despite the short amount of time I knew him (consider that he was much smaller than this when I had him... cuuuute!):

In case you're curious, he had several names. The people we got him from called him "Bailey." Nick and I liked to call him "Ender" (from the book "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card) 'cause he was a little tactician when assaulting his toys. Krissy preferred "Bobo" for no special reason. The people adopting him are naming him "Peanut Butter," "Peanut" for short (their other cat's name is "Jelly"). Poor thing's gonna be so confused...

Well, Nick just called from out of the blue and said that he's coming over to pick me up for dinner. He didn't feel like going to class tonight (heck, who ever does? ; )). Better go get ready!

KITTIES!! *squeals*
He's so CUTE! *has kitty cuteness attack* I'm so glad you were able to save him...I know that technically speaking, euthanasia is a better way for a critter to go rather than live out life in a cage, or on the streets or being abused...but even so, I hate to hear about perfectly fine animals being put down because there's no home for them. *sniffle* If I had my way, my house would be crawling top to bottom with cats....*goes to hug own kitties*

It's me, Krissy!!!!!!
Sorry, I don't have a LiveJournal, so this will have to remain annonymous....Anyway, it's ME, Krissy, Minna's sister!! (So much for aninimity....) I like the journal, my dear, especially the pic. of my little BOBO baby cutie kitty! (Marilyn calls him little BoBo DooDoo Bum....it's much cuter when she says it to him, because his little ears perk up and his little head turns to the side, it's adorible!) Anyway, yes, I AM at work right now, but it's 7:52, so I'm allowed to goof off for the next 8 minutes since no one is in yet. It's actually kinda cool being here by yourself for a while...no one talks to you...beau-tee-ful! Ok, seriously, though, I gotta go get some more coffee (we're on cup #3. I'm seriously trying to get back that caffine buzz I had yesterday...It made me so happy for some reason, now I want it BACK!!!) OK, maybe I should just shut up now...

OK, love you, sis, look forward to more interesting readings of your Journal. Very, very cool. Next time, though, for your picture, you should put up a picture of Alan Jackson..no wait, Toby Keith...no, wait wait, TIM MCGRAW! NO--wait, even better...Kenny Chesney! Ok, nevermind, I will always stay loyal...you SO need a picture of Lonestar (my hunky, hunky boys that all kissed me and hugged me...somtimes late at night I can still feel their big, robust, musically talented arms around me....ahhhh....**DIET COKE BREAK**)

Ok, better go, now it's time to get more coffee COFFEE (::tweek voice:: AHHH!) and get back to work!

Love you always and forever,

Re: It's me, Krissy!!!!!!
LOL... we'll scan your pics with Lonestar sometime soon, and maybe I'll post one to my journal if you're good. ; )

Glad you could make it to my den of iniquity! >=)
