neko-pumpkin

Posted in meow meow on October 31, 2007 by Mitsu

I’m back at my desk now, after the little staff party that we had. The cat cookies were a success!!! Everyone was impressed that a 22-year old can bake…No big surprise, I’ve been helping my momma bake since I was little. Anyways, I’m glad that it worked out. I get to leave early today, cause a co-worker’s going to give me a ride home. I have a huge pumpkin, and I can’t take it on the bus, it’s just too heavy!

I ended up with it, because it was right there, on the floor, and there was only one carved pumpkin. So I drew a cat face on it, and now I want to keep it. I’ll try and carve the cat face when I get home. Sounds cute, eh! It might be a while before hottie gets home, so I should have it done by then. It will be cool, I suppose. At least it gave me something to do today, all the set-up and tear-down. I should head up and start collecting my containers soon, I want to take them home today, since I’m getting a lift.

So there’s my 2 cents for today. Now, to get back to my reading.

Cat cookies and a hot premier…

Posted in meow meow on October 30, 2007 by Mitsu

I know, I haven’t really been inspired to blog lately, with all that was happening this weekend. It was nuts, trying to get organized for the rest of the week. Hottie had to do some early christmas shopping, just so that he could send the gifts to his parents before they head south for the winter. As far as I’m concerned, I don’t do any christmas shopping. If I like someone, I’ll give them a nice birthday gift, or a New Year’s gift. And most of the time, I don’t wrap them, it’s just a waste of paper. Everyone I know is used to this by now, and they don’t mind at all.

Tomorrow’s Halloween, so that means I have to make crazy cat cookies tonight, to bring to the work party. I spent so much time looking around for a cat-shaped cookie cutter this weekend, and then I found 2 different ones at Bulk Barn. Of all the places! I got the one that looks like a kitty lying down. I’ll take pics of them, and post my recipe on here when they’re done. I just thought it would be cute, to match my crazy cat lady costume. I like keeping things within a “theme”, and crazy cat lady is this year’s theme.

Damn! I’ll be so busy tonight! The Ontario Cabinet is being sworn in today, so I don’t want to miss that! I hope that it will be aired on newsworld or CPAC. Yay!!! It’s so exciting, considering I haven’t seen the “hot guy” on TV since the elections were over! I guess I can watch it while the “cats” are baking. Hottie’s getting tired of me mentioning that now, he finally took down my election sign Thursday. I couldn’t bring myself to do it! The next step, is for me to de-clutter my bedroom dresser and my computer desk, which means removing all my campaign buttons (with the hot guy on them), stickers, etc., and putting them in my little box where I keep all this stuff. I took most of it from the office to give to my friends, but no one really wanted it…oh well.

I’d better get back to work for now.

Crazy cat lady

Posted in meow meow on October 25, 2007 by Mitsu

Yay! Today, I got second comment on a P-A note! Sweet! (This goes to show how  dull my life is, I get excited over having the second post.) Other than that, not much is new here, just working still. This afternoon, I’ll leave early to go to a doctor’s appointment, so that’s not too bad.

I wanted to go see CATS, but the cheapest tix are about 75$, so that’s out of the question. It would have been nice though, to do somethig different for a change. Hottie wants to go see a Sens game, but those happen every year! CATS only comes to Ottawa once in a while! Meow! I guess I’ll just look for it at the video store.

Speaking of cats, there’s going to be a halloween party at work, and I’m going to dress up as a crazy cat lady! How appropriate! Every year, I’ve dressed as a cat, but now, I’m going to be different! All I need for this, is a bathrobe, toy cats (I already have lots of those), and a grey wig with some rollers in it! It’s that simple, and I only have to buy a couple things! It’s possibly the most creative idea I’ve come up with in a while.

Aside from that, well, I suppose I’d better get back to work.

pulling teeth

Posted in meow meow on October 23, 2007 by Mitsu

So, things have been picking up here lately, I have a few little projects that I’ll get started on tomorrow. That’s always good news. I’m still going through political withdrawal, even though the House is back in session, I have a craving for some hot provincial politics!

Well, enough of that. I’m pretty nervous, because I just found out that one of my wisdom teeth has to come out. I only have 2 left, I had 2 removed at 16. I discovered yesterday that it was feeling strange, and I can see a cavity back there. I’ll go to a dentist and have them look at it, then determine what has to be done. I’m a huge wuss when it comes to needles though (tattoos don’t count in this!) and I’m already quivering with fear at the thought of getting it pulled/filled/whatever. It’s going to be really expensive for me, cause I’ll have to be heavily drugged before they can do anything to me. I’ll ask if i can take a few sleeping pills before I go, that may be a cheaper alternative. (I won’t drive myself there!) What may be a bit crazy about all this, is that I’m going to bring my stuffed cat with me. I’ve had it for 19 years now, and I’ve brought it to all the dental appointments where they had to do work on me. I just need something to squeeze, while they put the needles in me. After that, I’ll be fine. They’ve probably seen lots of nervous patients, right?

Well, so much for getting Neko fixed right now, but I need to look after my teeth first. That’s a bit more urgent. Neko will be  fine.

this cat likes water…

Posted in meow meow on October 22, 2007 by Mitsu

I’m at work again, just reading on the job, and blogging. It’s a nice day out there, at about 24°C, which is great for this time of year. My hottie calls it “Indian summer”, but I take offense to that! I’m (east) Indian, and he’s obviously referring to Natives! Get it right! I don’t know how many times I get this. Anyways, old habits are hard to break. To me, an “Indian” summer is when the temperature gets up to 40°C, just like in New Delhi! Now that’s what I’m talking about!

The weekend has been pretty crappy for me. My hottie went out to spend time with his brother on Saturday morning, leavign me alone with the cat and the hamster. Blah. Then, on Sunday, we went out there, to take his brother’s smelly kids out, while they had a house showing. Terrible! I can’t stand kids, imagine 3 of them screaming in the car! At least we took them swimming, that way, they’d get all cleaned up. I don’t remember smelling that bad as a child…oh well. I was just pissed that I couldn’t get anything accomplished during that time, I had a lot to take care of yesterday, and I ended up coming home exhausted. It’s a lot quieter under the water…I stayed under there most of the time, just coming up for air, and then going back down again. Hottie said I was being wierd, just swimming around like that, he couldn’t believe I could hold my breath that long. I just told him that the water noises were relaxing, as opposed to the screams above it. I think it’s true, that when you get to a certain age, loud noises don’t bother you as much. He’s got bad hearing, compared to me.

Anyways, that’s my rant…time to get back to work, and I definitely hope that next weekend will be much better for me. If he decides to go see the kids again, I’ll head down to Montreal to visit my parents…haven’t seen them in a while.

what a day…

Posted in meow meow on October 19, 2007 by Mitsu

What a long, boring day it’s been! It’s just 3 :15 pm, and it feels like I’ve been here for an eternity! It’s Friday, so most people don’t come in to work today, except for the newbies like me. This explains the lack of work to keep me occupied. I can’t even check my hotmail from here, but at least I can go on Facebook…

I’ve been pretty much on passive aggressive notes all morning, just randomly chatting, trying to keep my sanity. Doing so, actually increased my blog hits, cause the people I comment to, come and check it out. It’s all good, even if they disagree with my political “leanings” 😉 . Whatever floats your boat, that’s what I like to say. I’m really trying to think of something to post here, but it’s just not coming to me…I’m brain-dead from not doing anything all day! It gives me a headache!

Anyways, the weeked is almost here… I’m not too sure what I’ll do, since it’s going to be rainy and cold. Maybe I’ll just stay home, have a nice drink, and watch some hot politicians on CPAC…sounds like a plan to me!

a post…

Posted in meow meow on October 18, 2007 by Mitsu

Earlier today, I was surfing a site called “passive aggressive notes”, which is exactly what it’s about. It’s one of the sites on my blogroll, cause it’s hilariou, and everyone should check it out! I mean, some of the things that are posted on there, lol! If I saw notes like that in my apartment building, I would definitely take pics and submit them! The  downside is, that everyone is more aggressive than passive around there, and they’re not much into letter writing.

Anyways, it’s just another day here, the week is almost over. It hasn’t been too bad, there’s no one giving me attitude here, thankfully! I just can’t stand condescending people! What are they tring to prove?

On another note, my hottie wants me to get Neko fixed, and soon. I have yet to call and inquire about prices… My poor kitteh! I’ll do it for her, because it has health benefits for her, like a lower risk of cancer, and so forth. Well, that’s it  for now, Meow!
