Yesterday I adopted two 6 week old kittens, Mia Stella and Loco. They're black and silver tabbies and Mia has a dusting of brown mixed in. Since I'm a little technically challenged and lj won't let me upload pics from my hard drive you get the photobucket link....


They are still a little shy and tend to hide behind any piece of furniture they fit behind, but Loco has started to come to me for a cuddle and Mia has crawled up my front and rubbed herself all over my neck and face a few times while I was watching tv in the evening... I think they're starting to come around.

Until now they only have discovered two of the 5 rooms of my flat... the kitchen and the living room. Since the only door in my flat is the bedroom door they have pretty much free reign...

When was the first time that you stood up for yourself? Were your actions justifiable? Looking back, would you have done anything differently?

The first time that I remember was when I was about 13 years old... My parents had gotten a divorce about 4 years prior and now my mother - with whom I never had that good of a relationship - wanted to up and move to a different city which would mean that my father - whom I did then and still do adore - would not be able to visit as much.

Past fights and disagreements and my shaky relationship with my mother all became too much for me so I begged my dad to file for sole custody which - after numerous court appointments etc. - he ultimately got because my mother threw me out. 

Looking back, I believe my actions lead to me becoming the person I am today. If I had stayed with my mother, my personality would have been destroyed, I am so very different from the way my mother was.

I am happy with the way things worked out, even if by taking that road many wounds were inflicted and not every one of them had been able to be healed before my mother died 2 1/2 years ago.

Meme from somewhere around the interwebs

1. Open your music player (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, etc).
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question press the next button. Some songs fit perfectly.

This is proof that iTunes is a sentinent creature and my iPod loves me ;-)

Right now I'm facing a serious dilemma.

Fact 1. I have a craving for strawberries.

Fact 2. I'm halfway through reading 'The Count Of Monte Cristo' and I don't want to put it down. Like AT ALL.

Fact 3. I'm lying in bed under my snuggly warm blankets and its COLD outside.

Normally these facts aren't mutually exclusive. But the dilemma remains that for me to satisfy my craving I'd have to get up, get dressed, walk out into the cold damp afternoon, drive to the shop and buy a box of strawberries.


(And yay, I can read in bed and be online at the same time. ;-) Multitasking and wireless internet rule!)

After much, much, hemming and hawing i finally convinced myself to watch Doctor Who - The End of Time. 

I'd read many reviews, some bad, some good, but all of them well thought through and on one hand they made me want to see it... but a part of me didn't want it to end. In some ways I think I thought to myself that if I didn't watch it, then it wouldn't be real... yeah, well, that never works, does it? *g*

I have to say I loved the quiet interactions with the Doctor and Wilf, loved the spikey green scientists/salvagers (especially the snarky female one), loved the Ood. And the revisiting of old Companions. While the whole Martha/Mickey thing kinda came out of nowhere for me I liked that he left Rose for last. And I won't even start on Jack. There's been enough discussions out there that I don't need to put my two cents in.

All in all I feel it was kind of rushed, like RTD wanted to push every single idea he ever had into one episode and couldn't quite figure out how to do it and not... I don't know.... have it be 'too much'....

Nevertheless I had tears in my eyes from the moment the Doctor steps into that class champer thingie, develloping into sniffles along the way and burst into full out crying at hearing him say 'I don't wanna go.'

David Tennant did a beautiful job. He will always be my favourite Doctor.

Matt Smith. I whish him all the luck in the world. He has big footsteps to follow.

- Put your music player on shuffle, and put down the first 40 tracks it plays.
- You can repeat artists.
- You CANNOT repeat songs.)
