Ugh.

This has been an awful week

The internship fell through because it turned out to be less than legit. Awesome. Back to the job search.

On top of that, tonight, while I was sitting at the kitchen table one of my two cats started howling at me and nudging my leg. I follow her to the door and hear a cat fight going on outside. I flip on the porch light and see that it isn't a fight, but rather, my other cat has gotten her paw stuck in the slats of our fence and is dangling by a paw. I run over to free her and she attacks me, clamping her jaw on my wrist and leaving massive holes. Not knowing what else to do, I thwap her over the head to get her to let go and then, hand cradled in hand, I run frantically around the neighborhood in search of someone who can pull the boards apart and get her down.

Neighbor one yells at my cat and tells her to shut up.

Neighbor two is asleep.

Finally, neighbor three comes to the rescue and breaks the fence, sending my cat running. Unfortunately, I can see as she disappears into the dark that her back leg is dangling behind her.

Also unfortunately, she has chosen to hide under my parents king size bed.

Unfortunate fact #3 Oh yeah. I don't drive. Or have a car. So even if I can pull her out from under the bed, I don't have a means of getting her to a late night vet.

After tearing apart the bed and boxsprings, I call friends, family, and anyone else I can think of and no one is available. My mom gets ahold of a friend of hers who comes and picks me up and we finally get to the vet, only to find out that Birdie (my cat) will likely need surgery. Which I can't afford.

I pony up $300 for tests, xrays and overnight stay, get home and the doctor calls. Finally some good news. It turns out that her hip was dislocated so all they needed to do was pop it in place, give her some meds, and she could come home the next day.

She'll be coming home, but I can't sleep because all I see is the look on her face as she hung there and the sight of her paw dangling on the other side of the fence. I don't think I've ever felt so ridiculously helpless in my life.

So yeah. Bad week.

parents...oy vey

So I was watching Superstar today when my mom came in and said that she believed that I needed to broaden my comedic horizons. In her words, "If you want to be a comedy writer, you have to try new things." How does she go about doing this? She changes the channel so we can watch Meet the Fockers for the fourth time.

Head+Forehead=*Smack*

Postsecret

Postsecret never fails to mesmerize me. I can't find the words to expres how moving those postcards are. I want to send one in, but I don't really have any secrets, at least not anything that is too terribly shocking.

Ten more days until I am free of the island's hold. Maybe I should throw a "I'll never be back party." Though, I know that if I do, I would just seal my fate on that internship and I would find myself winding up back there next year.

I promised myself that I would only stay up and surf the net until the string of good music videos was halted by a crap video an lo and behold, here it is. I love Fiona Apple, but this new video just weirds me out, so good night.

Jul. 30th, 2007

Wow, Internet neglect is running rampant

I got back from camp today, and as much as I would love to dish for pages and pages about how hellish my last few weeks have been, I'd rather sum it up efficiently for your reading pleasure:

Torturous descent into nothingness. Last summer. Campers smoke and think we're unaware. Last but not least: Exposed to Shingles, Mono, Allergens, Cold, Flu and Norwalk in just four short sessions. Hail, Hail the gang's all here welcome to Camp (insert generic camp name here)!

And oh yeah--Move aside Awkward Turtle. There is a new boss in town named Awkward/Angry/Crying/Exploding Panda and it is all powerful.

On a lighter note, I officially have enough credits to declare my major, I am 9 credits short of being a junior and I only have 3 GURs left. Who kicks ass at this whole whirl-wind college experience thing? That would be me.

I received a letter today in the mail from Viry and it pretty much made my day. My mom told me in the car on the ride home that I had gotten a letter from "David," some guy in Mexico so I was a little confused until I started rattling off all of the names of everyone I knew in Mexico until she remembered Viry's last name. Leave it to my mother to confuse "Viry" with "David"

hmm bed time, methinks. It's kind of scary how camp can change your sleep schedule and suck the life out of you. I think the kids are secretly dementors.

It's been a long week

So let's see...

Saturday: went to BioLife with Laura and on the way her car started overheating. I filled the radiator and checked the oil, and things seemed to be running smoothly, but the car died on the freeway, then at a stop light, a stop sign, and again in the middle of a residential road. We called AAA and towed it, but it was stressful just the same

Sunday: Went to Shrek with Kim, had to deal with the buses :(

Monday: Dance with Kim, bored to tears because we aren't going to the Highland Games so they don't really pay attention to us. We were supposed to start filming our movie for Cinemas, but we got to ATUS 1 minute too late, oddly mirroring out movie...

Tuesday: gah. Tuesdays bite. I gave my provocation in ENG 203, and it went over pretty well. We had a crappy discussion about relationships that bored everyone to tears except for the guy who is convinced that he can learn to have out of body experiences. IPA class felt like longer than two hours, but Anna and I cracked jokes the whole time, so it went by a little faster. We had a v. unimportant discussion over the spelling of the world "Yeses" in which our resident linguistics expert insisted that "Yeses" was spelled wrong (it wasn't), to which I had to laugh.

The week isn't over, but I'm already bored of it hahah. I'm not, however, tired of watching SNL clips on Youtube. I think I'm more likely to die before running out of good SNL clips supplemented with Lonely Island clips. mmm Jorma...*wink*
You know there is something wrong in the world when creepyass Angelina Jolie can be make a shift to mainstream and Lindsay Lohan can start out normal and turn into...well, Lindsay Lohan
