Well, I'm excited now. It appears that cats really do have some benefits, and I'll be keeping mine around for a long time. I'm linking to an entry posted earlier by [ profile] wyrdwriter that proves that cats are good for your health. Read and enjoy.

Well, I've got a lot to say today I think, so there's nothing else to do accept for write.

First, congrats to [ profile] johnmill79 and to [ profile] imafarmgirl for remaining in the LJ Idol competition. At the risk of sounding just a little bit biased, I read the entry of the person who won this week, and it looked quite a bit similar to [ profile] imafarmgirl's entry which was posted days before, but I'm only a innocent bystander so I probably don't know much. SMILE! This week's topic looks like it could be a lot of fun though, so good luck in advance!

I wrote the other day about how much I like Saturdays. Well, if Saturdays are the best day of the week, Mondays have got to be the absolute opposite. This morning definitely did not get off to a very good start. It did improve some throughout the day, but this morning was definitely interesting.

I woke up around 6:30 after having a dream about me and someone at a meeting that we go to every once in a while. In the dream I had to get up like every five minutes because my bladder kept hurting, and this person, for whatever reason kept coming into the bathroom with me. I don't know why, maybe it was because of something she's got on her blog right now. But anyway, it was driving me nuts because we were missing the meeting, and no matter how often I went I never felt any better. So, I woke up and realized that the reason I wasn't getting any better in the dream was because I seriously had to go for real. I hate it when that happens, but I've had dreams like this before. Maybe some day I'll tell you all the story of my potty training dreams. SMILE!

So anyway, I took care of things and went right back to bed. It was still early, and it was just way too cold so I didn't want to get up. While laying there listening to my Book Port, Taz came up to snuggle, followed shortly by Cally. Taz likes to lie on top of me a lot of the time, and I was laying on my right side, so he was on my left, and Cally was in her usual spot on my feet. I was getting nice and warm, and really getting relaxed when Taz started the puke dance. Yes, he was still on top of me while this was happening, and no, I didn't let him stay there. Once he started jerking and making his puke noise I made him get off the bed. Unfortunately this meant that he was going to puke on the carpet. I figured it'd be okay; I'd wait for Jim to get up and let him know about it so that he could find it before I actually got out of bed. Well, as it turned out, when Jim got up, (he was sleeping on the couch because he's been having some hip problems and it's more comfortable on the couch), he was apparently also cold so he went immediately into the shower instead of coming into the bedroom to see if I was awake. I knew it wouldn't do any good to yell because he wouldn't have heard me. So, I picked up my laptop, which I've been keeping by the bed lately, and went online. I took care of some stuff there and then realized that it was time to actually motivate myself. But, Jim was still in the shower. I figured that if Taz had left a mess it would most likely be in the middle of the floor rather than against the wall, so if I stayed close to the wall I'd be fine. Wrong. With my bare feet, which were all ready cold, I managed to step directly into his cold puke. Not exactly a good way to start things off.

I didn't want to get out of the shower. It was so warm, and I figured I could just stay there all day and I'd be perfectly content. Unfortunately, this was not an option, but it would have been nice. The heat is really hard to adjust in this apartment, so I really don't like to mess with it. But, because of the cold, even the cats were uncomfortable, so I had to turn up the thermostat some. I had my space heater going pretty much all day, and I pulled some peppermint hot chocolate packets that were left over from my birthday party and made us hot chocolate. While we were getting ready to eat lunch, Jim got out a bowl of the Campbell's Ready-To-Serve Soup bowls. He opened it, and somehow the thing leaked all over, including the floor. He's opened tons of those and never had a problem. Let's not mention the fact that he had just mopped the floor yesterday. So, he wasn't happy.

I got a lot done today work wise though. I got one of two pre-evaluation calls done, (the other person hasn't called me back yet), and I've started working on a mass emailing that I was asked to send out regarding JAWS and Windows Vista. I was supposed to have an appointment tomorrow, but the guy that was supposed to drive me cancelled for the second week in a row. I feel bad for the guy I'm supposed to work with, especially since I have his ZoomText 9.0 upgrade sitting here, and he doesn't get it until I can get to his house.

Speaking of ZoomText, I've got a lot of work in front of me for tomorrow. Wednesday we've got an all-day staff meeting, and I'm supposed to teach a couple of the staff members Magic. It's really not going to be that big a deal since the commands are so close to JAWS, but I need to get it installed and configured on my laptop, and then spend some time with it just to refresh my memory on some of the stuff that I'm going to be asked to demonstrate.

I have about 300 and something more people to email as well, plus the second evaluation, so tomorrow is going to be busy. Hopefully I can get through everything so that once Wednesday comes around I'll be ready with Magic, and done with all the other stuff that needs to get done. When I'm not doing all this stuff, I've got to work on getting our web site updated with some new products. Yikes! SMILE!

My PAC Mate is going back on Wednesday. I'm definitely going to miss it, and even though I do have the company BX, it's just not the same. And I still can't get Yahtzee to work. I guess I'm going to have to completely uninstall the program and associated stuff and start completely over. Oh well, if nothing else there's always Jawbreaker. Talk about a mindless game, but it sure is addictive. SMILE!

Well, I think it's about time to find something for supper, so I'm going to go for now. More later.

Well, I had intended to sit here in bed all evening and watch TV or read or something. I did the TV thing and caught up on my soap and then I figured I'd do the book thing. Unfortunately, just as I was getting comfortable I remembered that I finished the book I'd been reading on my Book Port and will need to put something new on it before I can read. So, at some point I'm going to have to get up and do that. That's one thing I can't do through a remote connection since the Book Port isn't wireless. Hey, cool idea for a future upgrade. SMILE!

I also just realized that I can get a new book from Audible again because my credit has been renewed. I know I could buy books more than once a month, but I'm kind of cheap. SMILE! And anyway, I figure that if I do this once a month I'll have more books longer.

I don't know if any of you have read any books by Janet Evanovich and I don't remember if I've even talked about her or not. Janet writes all kinds of books, but my favorite series of hers is the Stephanie Plum series. Stephanie is a bounty hunter, but she tends to get herself into a lot of trouble sometimes. Anyway, book twelve is due to be released on June 20th, and I need to decide if I want to use a credit for that or wait until I can get it from the public library. Kind of a tough decision actually because I've got a friend who will be getting the print book the day it's released and she'll be tormenting me with it. So, we'll see.

For a treat this evening, Jim bought Taz and Cally a couple of cans of wet food. They normally get hairball control dry food, but every once in a while we like to give them this. I swear that two cats becomes more like 6 when these cans are opened. Taz came running and Cally was there even before I opened the can. Of course she probably thought I was going to spill water on her or something, so she was disappointed that way. I keep telling her that that's Jim's responsibility, but she doesn't seem to get it. (Hey, any LJ users got the command for tagging another user in an entry? I haven't found it yet. I'm guessing it has something to do with "lj-user" something-or-other, but not sure. I still say that being able to post entries via email is the best invention since sliced bread.)

Anyway, I sort of got sidetracked. So Taz came running, and for ten years old that little guy can still move. I think he was sitting in the window trying to get some evening sun, but he heard that can top pull off and he was there in a matter of seconds. I'm kind of mean to these guys though. I open the can and then immediately walk away from it long enough to throw away the lid. Then I take a knife and divide the can in half because they have to share a big can, they don't get their own. I fill the two bowls and leave them on the counter while I take the empty can and knife over to the sink. I suppose I'm asking for trouble by doing this because even at three Cally still thinks the counter is her territory, but so far they haven't tried that. Then I take a dish in each hand and start making them follow me. Well, they're actually following me anyway at this point, but you get the picture. So by this time they're both meowing like crazy and trying to climb my legs. It's at this point that I realize the wisdom in declawing the front paws. SMILE! So, they got their food finally, and I haven't really seen them since. Taz was snuggling with Jim for a while, but that's about it. They probably had to go and sleep off their meal.

Well, I suppose I should post this so that I can end my remote connection. I've got several books from RFB&D that I got on CD specifically so I'd be able to use them with my Book Port. So, I'm gone for now.
