Finn is such a whiner when she wants to go outside and play.  The rule with Finn is that she can only go out back onto the porch, the door has to be left partway open, and I have to check on her every few minutes to be sure she doesn't go too far.  So when it's cold outside, like today, chances of outside time are low.  But that doesn't stop a kitten from trying, after all.

I saw some Evergreen students feeding a big group of raccoons outside by my back porch yesterday.  This pisses me off for several reasons.  One, I like raccoons, but I don't want them around the cats, because I don't want a fight to happen.  Two, feeding wild animals just messes with them and makes people think they're all tame and crap, when they aren't.  But do the majority of stupid Greeners realize these things?  Of course not.

I've been buying more clothes this week in an attempt to branch out wardrobe-wise.  I've avoided women's clothing for years now and stuck to only men's shirts and junk like that.  But I've recently become frustrated at how much I look like a teenager as a result.  So I'm trying some new stuff.  It's hard trying on women's clothing, because the sizing is fucked and it all makes me feel gigantic, but I need to realize that wearing a size Large in women's isn't the biggest deal in the world.  I tried some button-down flannel shirts at Old Navy and Target and actually liked a few. 

Classes are tough this quarter.  I have a math conference in Spokane this weekend - I leave Thursday, come back Saturday.  I'm sure it'll be riveting, or whatever.  We'll see how Meridan fends for himself for two nights alone.  :P

Meridan has an interview at Best Buy on Thursday!  Hope it goes well for him.  We're desperately looking for a good part-time gig for him to get him out of ACS, and I think this might be it.  He has such a flexible schedule. 

Still don't miss the cable between Netflix and Hulu.  I'm going to give Hulu some money for a paid subscription when they start that whole thing - between that and Netflix, it's only $20.00 total, and there's plenty to watch.

Financial aid offices can suck my left titty.  All of them. 

The cable box/DVR is gone.  Sigh.  They stopped paying for the bulk basic cable account at my apartment complex, so we either had to tack more money onto our bill, making it well over $100 a month for everything, or just let the cable go and stick to good phone service and great internet service.  In my investigations as to how dumping the cable would work, I found that the majority of the shows I like are on Hulu or other streaming sites, so I won't miss much. 

Speaking of television, I've been keeping up with the new fall shows, and Meridan and I have fallen in love with Raising Hope.  It's hilarious, mainly because of the actors.  I suggest you give it a try.

I attempted to watch Outsourced, but lost interest halfway through.  It feels too much like poking fun at Indians, and the main American character is a bit of a non-entity, generic white male.  Blah.

As soon as there's a way to successfully read my LJ friends list on Dreamwidth, I'm gone for good.  I fucking hate the popover ads and the site integration and just about everything about LJ now, and that makes me sad.  But I still go back to read your damn journals, so I can't stay away.  :P

I love my new computer to pieces, but the keyboard kinda sucks balls.  Suggestions for a good brand or model of USB keyboard are welcomed.

Meridan bought me a surprise yesterday - a new GPS system for the car!  I LOVE IT SO MUCH.  Anyone who knows me knows I am NOTORIOUS for getting lost wherever I drive, and I have badly needed something like this for a long time.  It's a little Garmin Nuvi, very good price at Costco.
