(this started as a Chumley update but not really sure what happened - just nonsense really but oh well that's what blogging's all about)
Chum's tests revealed low red blood cell counts and abnormal BUN and Creatnine levels so as predicted it's his kidneys but the vet also thinks he may have an infection. We're starting a month of antibiotics and then will retest his blood (cat in the bag) and see if there's any improvement.
Why do they use banana flavoring for cat antibiotics? When was the last time you saw a cat go ape shit for a banana??? So stupid. My vet recommended an online pharmacy that has more cat pleasing flavors. When the pharmacist called she rattled off the flavors: tuna, chicken, salmon, vanilla and marshmallow (that's odd but Chum does like marshmallows) then she asked if I thought he would like any of those. For a split second I wanted to ask, "Do you happen to have human flesh flavor?" But decided not too. I ordered Chum tuna.
Chum's doctor's name is Dr. Caster and I keep calling her Dr. CaTster. I say in my head while the phone is ringing CASTER CASTER CASTER and then when she picks up, "Hi Dr. CaTster, it's Laura." Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb. I'm sure she's heard this before but really, I'm just dumb.
I made Kung PAO chicken for dinner last night. Good thing Tom fixed the toilets. Did I mention 2 of our toilets were out of commission over the weekend? I think we need to install an outhouse in the backyard and call it a day. We have problems.
So I have kind of a confession. I spy on my neighbors. Our bedroom window looks down into their kitchen and usually around dinner time I'm perched up there (in the dark) watching them cook. A few things: People still really wear aprons when they cook? I was not aware of that. Their house must be just as cold as ours because the husband always wears a red puffy down jacket. The wife, however does not. Perhaps she's going through the change of life. Also, they waste a lot of food but they compost it in the backyard which sends Wrigs into a frenzy when I let him out to pee and poo. But judging from their recycling bin, they drink a heck of a lot of wine so they are cool peeps.
I want to make a cutting board where one side reads "FRUITS n VEGGIES" and the other "MEATS n SUCH". Not a big fan of salmonella. I thought about using a black sharpie on my current board but I think that would look trashy. And probably not good to get sharpie remnants on our edibles.
I like to dance for the animals. I'll spin around, wave my arms in the air, snap and wiggle etc. and then suddenly stop and freeze and look at them and their eyes get so big and they freeze too and then I laugh and Wrigs starts to wag his tail and buck his head up and down like a horse and sort of hops in place snorting while Chum just sits there still staring at us both like WTF? They are so fun.
Every living creature has a purpose on the planet and I've realized the reason for squirrels...To irritate the living hell outta my dog. There is one taunting him on the deck and one day Wrigs is going to launch himself right through the window. Speaking of windows, we haven't had any birds hit the last few weeks. I'm sure I just jinxed myself by saying that but it's a nice break from 7777yuuuu (chumley just walked across the keyboard so I am leaving that 7777yuuuu in there because he typed that with his little paws!) anyway it's been a nice break to not have birds hurl themselves into our windows.
Ok how stupid is this. Lucky Charms introduced yet another marshmallow.
The Hour Glass:
Good thing Lucky Charms put this on the box:
Cuz wouldn't everyone think these marshmallows were really head sized??? Not only that, the real life marshmallows don't even look like an hour glass. They look more like Kenny from South park. Btw, this box of Charms has fabulous oat to marshmallow ratio. More often than not, this is not the case.
This commercial cracks me up, especially the part, "Your son Rip is on line Toot." So funny. There is also a new comcast commercial that kind of makes me crazy but I like it. It's people singing (sort of Juno style) and they are put into various cartoon like scenes. One scene shows these alien people bouncing down the street on hippity hops and that's awesome. I can't find the commercial online but if you click this link you can click to play a little blurb of the commercial.
