RIP Zeitgeist

You lived a very long life and in lots of different environments. You have bought me great joy over the past 4 years (even when I didn't see you) and I'm grateful that I got to spend your last six months with you. You talked until your last breath and I know that you are no longer suffering. Have fun hissing at the other cats over that Rainbow Bridge and I'll see you again. I love you Zeit.

Update on Zeit

I took her in yesterday. She walked around the exroom-something that she's never done before or even does here. Everyone said that she was moving well for an 18-year old cat. They took some bloodwork and they should let me know what the options are hopefully tomorrow.

Time is getting really close

Zeit had a seizure or stroke last night...and I witnessed it. I'm wondering if she's been having them the last few days since her water bowl was all yucky after last night's episode and I've seen her water bowl like that in the mornings the last couple of days. I have an appointment with the vet Saturday morning. Not sure what they'll be able to do so....

Joey's First Gig

So Joey has joined a cover band called Rockshow and had his first gig with them this past Saturday. This band has been together for a while and have auditioned several drummers since their original one had to leave. Joey did a fantastic job and it was very obvious that the band was happy. I'm very proud of him and how well he did.

Michael Vick

I have tried and tried to remain calm about this whole issue. For anyone who knows me, they know I LOVE the NFL and dogs. Now normally these two things would not go together unless you're talking about the Dogpound for the Cleveland Browns...however thanks to the asshole Michael Vick, these two things have been brought together and not in the best of ways. For anyone living under a rock in the US or out of the US, Michael Vick, one of the better quarterbacks in the league was arrested for dogfighting a couple of years ago. He "did his time" and now has the opportunity to come back and play for a NFL team. He does NOT deserve to come back and play. Just because he served a jail sentence does not bring back all the dogs that died or got injured because of his stupidity. We all know damn good and well that if he had not gotten caught, he would have continued the slaughter and training. Some will say that it was because he was young and immature....bullshit. Put yourself in that ring Michael and see how it feels to be mauled by a dog that is trained to fact just fucking do it instead of playing for the Philadelphia Eagles.
My opinion is that NO ONE should be given another chance to play in such a high adrenaline driven sport like football if you have been convicted of a "violent" crime-that includes shooting yourself in the leg, dog fighting, DUI, attempted murder, etc. For the fact that the commissioner might possibly give him another chance is fucking beyond me....he's remorseful...bullshit....he got fucking caught and NEVER would have stopped if he didn't get caught and had his so called friends turn him in to save their own hinds.
So let me go back to the fact that the Eagles have signed him....I'm also a huge Donovan McNabb fan...goes back to when he played for Syracuse. The fact that Michael Vick is now on that team and what I heard McNabb say (among the others at that bullshit conference) makes me not a fan least until Michael Vick is out of the league. So I won't be wearing that nice jersey that Scott gave me even though it's from Syracuse. I probably won't be wasting my life away watching NFL on Sunday afternoons all because I need to make a point: MICHAEL VICK DOES NOT DESERVE TO COME BACK AND PLAY AFTER WHAT HE DID. So expect some letters Philadelphia and the commissioner because you guys really fucked up this time.

That's basically how I've been feeling lately. Not everything in my life is going poorly either. I do have a stable job which is crucial with the way that the world is at this time. I have some decent friends who are there if and when I need them. However, my financial situation continues to suck and I can't find a part-time job to help me out. I don't have enough money to even attempt to play the lottery. My relationship with Joey is basically just a strong friendship. He does his thing. I do mine. And that's fine. I'm figuring that come March, we will no longer be living together unless we both are continuing to struggle financially. I've come across a lot of what if's out there and even though I try REALLY hard to try not to think about them, they still keep coming up. They range from relationships/friendships to if I had never even moved to NC. And trying to fathom the idea of where the hell I'm going come March is making me feel anxious.
Life as an adult sucks sometimes but I'm also one of those people that NEVER EVER want to go back to childhood or adolescence. I don't have a life full of regrets. Just some what if's and unhappiness.

Tori Amos

Joey and I went to Tori Amos' show last night in Durham. This is probably the 5th or 6th time I've seen her live. She played a lot of songs from her new album. It was overall a decent show. My was too short. Her opening act played for a half hour-which I was fine with. But she only played for an hour and a half. And didn't even play "Crucify." But she did play "Precious Things" which has my all time favorite line in it. So overall a decent show but I have seen better shows of hers.
