This is sad, but true…

The Miracle of Life…


“Come quick, come quick”, their mother said “The time is getting near”
She feels that when the kittens come the children should be here.
She told them that a big orange Tom took “Kitty” as his wife
“It’s wonderful, a gift from God, the miracle of life”
At half a year young “Kitty” feels too painful and too scared
to appreciate six miracles, blind-eyed and yellow haired.
But she knows these lives depend on her and nature tells her how
and as she cleans them, children ask “Mom, can we go now?”
But now and then for six more weeks the children visit her
to play with six new magic toys made of life and fur.
The six weeks pass, the newness gone and new homes yet unfound,
Mom bundles up six miracles and takes them to the pound,
Where lovingly, with gentle hands and no tears left to cry,
the shelter workers kiss them once and take them off to die.
And “Momma Kitty” now she’s called mourns her loss and then,
she’s put outside, and of course, she’s pregnant once again.
Dad tells “Kitty” STOP THIS NOW or you won’t live here long!
but deep inside of Momma Cat, this time something’s wrong.
Too young, too small, too often bred now nature’s gone awry,
Momma Kitty feels it too and she crawls off to die.
She too is freed from this cruel world, and from her time of strife.
How harsh the truth, how high the price this “Miracle of Life”?

I survived it

The interview, that is. I don’t think it went too badly, but I don’t have a good feeling either. At this point, I’m just glad that it’s over, as I hate interviews in general. I had the questions beforehand, so I was pretty much prepared. They all seemed pretty receptive though, so now, it’s just a matter of waiting… The results should be in by the end of October. There were only 20 people at the exam, and I’m not sure if all of them passed, so there might be a fair bit of competition. I do have a slight advantage – I’ve worked here for about a year, and I’m a visible minority. (I don’t like using that to get in, but hey, what can you do?)

So, my first  government interview. Now I know what to expect in the future.

Techno + kittens = kawaii!!!!

The “Mews”

Posted in meow meow on September 24, 2008 by Mitsu

Yeah, a lot has happened since I last posted on here. Now, for the mews:

Work: I have an interview for the job that I’m currently in, on Monday. If I get the term, it would be wonderful, as I wouldn’t have to deal with the placement agency taking so much of my paycheque. All the money I make would be mine! Not to mention all the other perks that come with being an actual government employee, and not just a contractor. I’m nervous, as I tend to be shy, and do horribly at interviews, but my boss has coached me a bit, so it may work out.

Elections: I’ve made up my mind, finally. I’m voting McGuinty. Not Liberal, mind you, as I despise Dion as a leader, and the party really needs to get their act together before we put them back in government. I say I’m voting McGuinty, since he’s the only one who stands a chance here in the south end, and honestly, I kind of like him. Not as much as I do his older brother, but I ran into him while he was campaigning on Smyth Rd., and I was on the home stretch of my run. I stopped, and he started chatting with me, and I gave him my ring code, so that his crew can get into my building to campaign. Not to mention that he “checked me out”…I love that kind of attention from any hot guy, and my mind was made up then! Now, that has got to be the easiest vote that he’ll get, considering that I voted Tory in the last 2 elections.

That’s it for this issue of The Mews!

68 views!

Yay! it says that yesterday, Tuesday September 9th, 2008, was OMM’s busiest day ever! I had a total of 68 views! Isn’t that someting. I think that it’s being on Uncultured’s blog roll that’s helping me a lot…it says that most of my traffic is coming from there. Thanks Kevin!

Another thing is the post about the Maneki Neko tattoo… apparently, a lot of people are searching for such a design, and are coming here to check it out. I should get that design copyrighted, the last thing I want to see is someone stealing my design.

Anyways, I have to keep this one short, since I’m at work, adn don’t want to get caught. Meow!

I think I’ve decided

Posted in meow meow on September 8, 2008 by Mitsu

that I’ll vote for the hot guy, once again. As I mentioned before, the Liberals are disorganized, and have a wimpy leader, and the NDP… who knows? I noticed a lot of Green party signs around here today during my run, but there were double the amount of re-elect McGuinty signs. Oh well, I’ll just vote for Harper the hottie, one less vote for the Liberals. I know it’s not the greatest reason to vote for someone, but I’m disillusioned at this point. Let’s just get it over with, so we can get back to business. It would be nice if they got a majority this time around…that’s not likely though.

Anyways, trying to think about happier things, the cats are doing great, except for the occasional rough-and-tumble cat fight that seems to happen every night after we’ve gone to bed. We usually let them go at it, until there’s either too much thumping, or Neko yelps on the top of her lungs once Priya gets a hold of her, then it’s spray time. I think it’s a conspiracy to get into the most violent fight after we’re pretty much dozing off, to get us up, and paying attention to them. Who knows what goes through their little heads.

People on the Net are just plain strange. Yesterday, when I was playing MapleStory, some guy asks if I want to go out with his friend, in the game. I’m like “it’s just a game, dudes, chill out!” I mean, in the game, they have little weddings and crap, and you’ll see the occasional “looking 4 a gf, ovr lvl 25 no noobs” shoutout, that everyone can see. Whatever, I just play to relieve stress, and I’m only on for an hour every 2 days or so. In other words, I have a life outside of the Internet! I never really thought much of it, until I got “hit on”. I suppose people do it in Second Life and stuff, but this is MapleStory. It’s just a little “fantasy” world where you travel and kill monsters. Not a Second Life type of thing. People take these games way too seriously. Anyways, I’ll leave you with a pic of my character in MS, my “mini-me” always looks pissed… why would someone ask her out? Strange.

this is my avatar in the game, I made it to resemble me somewhat.

Not another election…

Posted in meow meow on September 7, 2008 by Mitsu

again. Being the political junkie that I am, you’d think an election would be welcome news, but not this time. Actually, I’m somewaht bummed out by the prospect of having a new minister at our department, and no longer the hot guy. In fact, it’s quite depressing, since my job is utterly unmotivating, and it already takes a lot of effort just to get through one day there… Whenever I get discouraged, I just think of the hot minister, and it makes things a lot better. Odd, I know. I even have his pic in my office to remind me that it’s not that bad. Even if the Tories get re-elected, there’ll be a cabinet shuffle.

At this point, I’m undecided. I like Harper, I think he’s hot, but that’s not a good reason for voting for someone. Then again, I live in “McGuinty-ville”, possibly the most liberal area in Ottawa. I like them provincially, but not at all federally. They need to get their shit together, before they can govern a country again. My cats have made it clear that they are voting Green…they keep saying “May” as in Elizabeth May… What do they think? That if the Greens get elected, they’ll get more catnip and cat grass? Oh well, as long as they’re not Dion supporters, it’s all good.
