reminiscence and feralty

i spent a few days in nyc last week, and realized how much i truly miss it. i guess i'd buried that a bit so i wouldn't get depressed about the fact that my career demands i live elsewhere for the time being, but being back there, walking those streets again, feeling that energy, soaking up the vibe.... well, i've put it back on top of my priority list to become bi-coastal within the next 2 years.

i have just taken on a litter of 4 feral kittens. and they are verrry unhappy and stressed. i hope i can work with them quickly to start making them more comfortable with people and affection. they are already 7 weeks old so technically they can be adopted starting in a week... but naturally that is not true if they have not adapted socially. so i will be working hard to get them in shape for a loving home. it should be quite a challenge and i am quite excited about it.

off tonight to see my first live hockey game in 2 years! verrrrrry excited, even though it's not my team. should be loads of fun. also helping put a friend's halloween costume together beforehand, bald cap and all~gotta look back into my notes from costume design era of my life. it'll be cool to do that stuff again for a minute. hope it turns out great!

didja feel that?

that, my friends, was an earthquake. a small one, granted~but an earthquake nonetheless!

i am just getting my stuff together to spend the day and evening at the BASV fundraiser, and lo and behold a nice little earthquake rocked my apartment.

always weird......

fundraiser & other stuff

this weekend is the BASV (burbank animal shelter volunteers) annual fundraiser. i am working as the volunteer coordinator for the event, as well as housing a litter of 5 kittens till i leave for nyc. i get my new babies in a few minutes here. i'll snap some shots for y'all.

in other news, it's HOT. what the hell happened to fall??

also, while awaiting my car from the mechanic today (yes, the new one!) i was at the gym on the treadmill. i was jamming to some music, eyes zoning out on the cnn broadcast on the t.v. opposite me.... and suddenly they flash up breaking news about 2 small planes colliding in NE ohio. my ex's dad is a pilot and has his own plane or two, lives in the area.... i immediately thought of him and the possibilities of one of those planes being his.... at any rate, i haven't found out any specific details yet except that they think there were about 5 people involved and it seems as though everyone died. so...yuck.

strange how you can snap right back into being worried about/concerned for someone who was important in your life at some point. even though i'm not so fond of either guy at this point, i hope it wasn't him or anyone he knows.... i know he/his family would handle that badly in spite of their dysfunctional relationships (or perhaps because of it). and that kind of tragedy just sucks. wouldn't wish it on anyone.

so frustrated...

i cannot tell you how sick i am of people using my choice of career as a reason to think they understand me, and to thereby judge me as a human being.

i am so absolutely exhausted of having to prove myself to people who don't want their assumptions proved wrong. and who don't even really matter in the scheme of life.

grumble. sorry.
