Here is how my day was supposed to go: breakfast with SisterRiddles at 9:30, study for biopsychology exam, take exam at 11:15, nap for a while, and probably play Sims, and go to work at 4:00 PM.
Here is how my day went. I realised upon reaching my car, that I lacked the keys. This was a problem, as I realised they were inside my apartment. Well, says me, you have three spares. One is in the house (dumb.) One is on the eve outside the house. But it wasn’t. I must have used that one and forgot to put it back. Don’t panic, me says again. You have a spare in your car, and you have a spare key to your car magneted on the undercarriage. But again, I must have used it, because IT wasn’t there. OK, you may panic, me says, throwing its arms in the air. But just a bit.
After I finished panicing, I realised that I had both a cell phone and AAA. I cancelled with SisterRiddles, who then became CrankyRiddles. Called AAA, get them to open the car, get the key for the house, and all will be well. AAA takes their customary 20 minutes over the 45 minute promised arrival time, and it takes him under 30 seconds to pop the lock. Swiddles decides to be a car thief, as it is apparently so godammed easy.
I look in the place where my spare house key should be…BUT IT ISN’T. Honestly, oftentimes it is quite difficult having to deal with myself. But now I can get in my car, where, I had at least stored a spare CAR key.
I take my psych exam, and did fairly well. I fully credit this to having spent all my emotional energy already, and not having any left to be nervous.
Under the advice of MommaRiddles, I try and find a movie. The only movie theater in Burlington (literally) doesn’t have any show until 3:00. It is 11:30 now. I drive to South Burlington. The only movie I’d pay money to see is Traffic , and it started 1/2 hour ago. I call my friend, who informs me she is going grocery shopping, but I am welcome to join. For some reason, I HATE grocery shopping alone, but I find it quite fun when I’m not the one spending money. So after we finish, I still have an hour and a half until I’m due at work.
My friend suggests that we “go look at the puppies,” which means we visit the Humane Society, which is around the corner. She does this on a weekly basis. Seriously, they think she’s nuts. However, she found my sister a dog, so I call her a Puppy Pimp.
Anyhoo, we get there, and I fall in love with a six month old boy kitten named Bread. (not for long. BREAD? Please.) He’s an angel. He leaped from the handler’s arms to mine. Literally. After spending 20 minutes of LOVE with him, my friend informs me that even though she already has one male cat, she’s gonna take him if I don’t. I have a 10 year old Siamese princess, and my only fear was sibling rivalry. But this little guy just wears me down, and I decide to take him. Possibly tomorrow.
While I’m there, my landlord FINALLY calls me and tells me they have the spare key. YAHOO! I kiss little Bread goodbye for now, and get the key from them, opening my apartment and grabbing my keys, and scoot off to work. I’m there for an hour, and I’m pretty happy, what with the keys and the kitten and all. I’ve been there for an hour when my coworker informs me that I wasn’t on the schedual until 5:00, anyway. So I got there an hour early. Dammit. I could have had my nap afterall.
Easily the strangest day on record. Things I learned: [ul] [li]When you place spare keys in strategic locations, it helps to replace them after use. Driving all over creation for an early matinee is silly. Don’t go looking at puppies unless you’re prepared to walk away with a new furry child, and Check the godammed schedual. [/ul][/li]
That said, any advise on how to acclimate my furry daughter to her new brother? She’s lived with other cats before, but they were always roommates’ cats. And I need kitten advise, too. Ooooh, I’m so excited. Any name ideas? He’s a coon mix, gray and white with medium, length hair. My daugher’s name is Tikitikitembonosiremboteriberirucipipperripembo, or Tiki for short. I’m thinking of naming New Son Chang. Anyone get it?
That’s my MPSIMS for the day.
