So I just realized a few days ago that my lease is up August 1st, not September 1st.

I repeat: MEEP!  Luckily I don’t own a lot of stuff, so it won’t take me long to get packed, but I have NO IDEA where I’m going to go!  I’ve found a few places, and I’m waiting for them to call me back, hopefully I can get moved in quickly.  Worst comes to worst, I’ve got a neighbor who will let me crash on his couch for a week or two…but I don’t think he’d appreciate having the pups around in his nice, clean apartment.

One of the places I found would be perfect, it’s a tiny little house with a good sized yard for rent really cheap.  I drove by it, and it looks to be in a decent neighborhood.  I’ve been on my toes all day hoping they’ll contact me.  Gawd, I need a yard SO BADLY.  Vito and Liz are great, don’t get me wrong, but they do not need to be stuck in an apartment all day.  I work long hours, and it’s just not fair to them.

They need more sunshine and grass and playtime, and I need to be able to let them out to potty anytime they want, instead of getting the leashes, sitting on Vito to clip it on, then getting tied in knots or yanked in separate directions  every five seconds because they haven’t figured out how to walk together yet.  They’re smart pups, and they try, but their mommy’s been too busy lately to train them on teamwork.  We’ll get there eventually.  So, cross your fingers and paws and hope I get this place!


In other news, I have to share this, it made me laugh.  A co-worker of mine is a very extreme feminist, everything to her is a conspiracy, keeping the woman down.  Normally I just roll with it, but her man bashing kinda got to me one day (she started bashing on the Dresden books, which she’d never read and I happen to l0ve) so I told her she really needed to work on her man issues (seriously, she can’t bring herself to say a nice thing about men unless you force her)…this angered her so much she bashed me on her blog.  It was so amazingly silly and over the top I can’t even get mad about it!  I mean, it’s…it’s like being accused of secretly plotting world domination with radioactive lemurs, it’s that silly!  According to her I’m a poor, brainwashed kid who thinks women belong in the kitchen and the bedroom.

Now, most of you don’t know me, so I’ll give you a little profile.  I am a 5’9″, 25 year old single female, who lives alone, works full time, and has loudly proclaimed the desire to never get married or have children.  I went to a trade school where I was the only girl in my class, I’ve moved 7 times in the past 10 years, lived in 3 different states, and only one of those times did I have a roommate.  I care for two dogs, one tripod, one with a medical condition, and pay for all of it out of my own pocket.  I have never had financial aid, not even food stamps, even when I worked retail part time at minimum wage.  Does that sound like a co-dependant, brainwashed woman to you?

Seriously though, I’m not angry!  It’s too funny to for me to get angry at!  I keep reading it and laughing like crazy.  But in case any of you are wondering my position on feminism…I’m for equality.  On BOTH sides.  Men have problems too people!  Buy a guy a beer once in awhile.  The whole social inequality thing isn’t a war, the more men and women work together the better things will get.  That simple.


Sorry for the tangent, but it was simply too silly not to share.  And don’t worry, that’s about as political as I’m gonna get, so you can rest at ease knowing I’m not gonna make you listen to me go on about politics, there’s plenty of other places for that.


In other other news, Vito is now 90lbs!  That’s 32lbs more than the day I adopted him!  Woot!  Also, he is now officially a pony.  Anyone got a saddle?

    Good luck with the apartment hunting! Too funny about your man-hating extreme feminist coworker. I feel kinda sorry for those folks who see conspiracy/anger, etc. behind everything. Let’s all just lighten up a little, people!

    All the best,
    Jackie, Abby’s mom

      Exactly! It’s a matter of just being nice to one another, of doing nice things for each other because you want to. Respect each other, and treat each other fairly. Golden rule an all that. It’s really all that needs to be done!
