Regarding my ass:

Ooookay, no more Neil Gaiman movies for Chiad's friends, at least not late at night.

Apartment search, (hopefully) the final chapter (for now) [22 Feb 2006|11:02pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Place 1: *shudder* You couldn't pay me to live there.
Place 2: Yeah, no. Not unless I invest in another large dog. Or possibly a pack of them.
Place 3: Didn't get to see, landlord was unable to get in touch with tenant.
Place 4: Hell yeah! F'n huge! One bedroom, tons of storage space, south-facing, quiet building, heat/hotwater included, laundry is only 75cents/load. Not quite as close to work, but still an easy walk. Takes cats. Landlord is a supersweet lady, who has cats and fish of her own.

So, to do tomorrow:
Typing test (pass = min. 50wpm)
Sign renters contract
Get tenants insurance
Move stuff out of old place, into new
Move desk
Get cat-tree and couch from 'Nell
Find bookshelves
Find kitchen table
Arrange for internet hookup
?Move clothes/other furniture in?
?Maybe be moved in by Friday?
Get new battery for cellphone
Meet up with L, inform him that he's just volunteered for moving crew. Laugh.

Appartment search, round the second [22 Feb 2006|03:43pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Well, upon discovering that the electrical pannel in the place I had been planning on renting is in the bathroom and the rest of the wiring is iffy (to put it mildly), so much for place the first. Now back to searching.

So, I managed to make arrangments to view three places tonight. But after talking to my sister, place 1 is out ("sketchy neighbors/neighborhood") though I'm still going to go look at it. I'm not feeling too good about place 2, it's a converted warehouse in the "industrial district" and not somewhere I think I would want to walk alone at night, at least not without a large dog. Place 3 I know nothing about, but well, I'll see. There's another place if all three of those ones fall through, but it's a little bit more expensive than I'd like to pay.

Anyone want to move up here and room with me?

*looks at half-packed disaster area that is her desk and room*

*hides under bed*

Make it be done already!

Arranged to have internet hooked up, won't happen until Wednesday, March 1st. *is sad* But it's cheaper than telus!


Cut for looooong memeCollapse )

Oookay... now that I've been totally sidetracked down some interesting side tracks and have sucessfully killed about an hour and a half, I suppose I should get some packing done!

I survived midterms. And middle of the term due-dates. Although my last video recording session (at 1:30am) was a bit incoherent.

In other events:
I'm starting to pack today. Should be most of the way moved by Monday.

It saddens me, but I think I'm going to leave one of the online games I quite enjoy because the game creator/admin threw yet another (one in a long line of many) screaming hissyfit because people weren't playing the game the way she felt it should be played (and/or were complaining because they felt other people were being "unfair"). I'm sorry, but when the list of rules and regulations for a "fun" (no real profit involved on the part of the player) game reaches four pages in length and growing, the game designer either needs to redesign or relax.

Oh good deity of choice... I have a lot of mess to tidy up and pack.

So far... [15 Feb 2006|12:59pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Vet office skills/terminology midterm done! Whoops... I was so busy panicking about having so much vocabulary to memorize, I neglected to notice that the unit on communication was also going to be tested... this is known as "How much BS can Chiad make up for 35 marks?" (Answer: A lot.)
And acting on the theory that any answer is better than leaving it blank... I must admit that there were a couple of... creative? answers before I was done. Personally, I liked

Fill in the blank
Paniful urination is known as: "Owie owie owie!"

Also survived the job interview that I had right after the midterm. It was a twelve page verbal test. The two interviewers took notes. Copious notes. Twelve pages of notes. (It helped that one of the interviewers is my boss' wife and a really neat lady, so I was a bit more relaxed than I would normally be.) I think I did really well. One of the questions was "What software programs are you familiar with and what are their uses?" Eheheheee... well, let's just say they ran out of room for writing under that question. Typing test is next week (only need 50wpm to pass, please, I could do that in my sleep, with one hand tied behind my back!), then I'll know by next Thursday if I've managed to get a nice $14/hr casual (fill-in for other people) job with Northern Health. The extra money would be very nice.

Now I've just got Anat/Phys to cram for, and a bunch of filming to do. Aside from the fact that my brain feels like three day old sushi, I'm feeling okay.

Argh! [14 Feb 2006|08:26pm]
Not a plotbunny in sight for months, and now, just when I don't have time to deal with the damn thing, it latches onto my ankle and it won't let go! Damnit! I have other things I need to focus on!
I was busy enough before I had half formed plot ideas and whispy characters floating around in my skull.

And to make it worse, the damn bunny's for an original fic, not a fandom, so I can't even scrape the damn thing off on someone else!

*stalks away, growling and muttering curses*

Things I would rather be doing right now: [12 Feb 2006|01:11pm]
[ mood | blah ]

De-lousing the horse
Organizing my bookmarks folder
Reading
Playing AOE3 or Fable
Reading a four year old webcomic from start to present
Sleeping
Packing
Moving
Cleaning fish tanks
Playing with my cats

Instead, I'm typing up this list inbetween study bouts. Gah.

In fact, I think I'm going to go delouse the horse right now.


(an hour or so later)
EDIT: Okay, I take it back. I think I'd rather study than delouse the horse. Have you ever tried to get powder to stick to the underside of a horse? And do you have any idea how much frigging surface area a large horse has? At least he liked the massage, but I wish I didn't have to do this again in a week.

A challenge! [09 Feb 2006|10:19pm]
[ mood | happy ]

So. Help me come up with a name for a female kitten I might be getting.

First impression of her? Well, she lunged out of her box and tried to politely eat my hand. Then proceded to attempt to playfight my fingers, attack my ponytail, and generally wreak havoc. In a non painful way. I'd call her Hellraiser, but that doesn't seem to work.

Ideally names from one of the following themes: anime/anime characters, japanese words/names, mythological.

Be creative, I've already got a "His Royal Majesty, Xelloss Furrybutt" (named by me) and "Little Miss"/"Sasafrass"/"Attacker of Feet Under Blankets At Night" (named by a friend).

Pictures to come of new place, moving adventures, and the cats!

Random updates on my life... [05 Feb 2006|10:08pm]
[ mood | blah ]

I'm going to look at an appartment on Tuesday! Yay! ...I hope roomie can afford it, I want to move out! (But not before midterms...)

I'm feeling illogically down right now. This is concerning to me. It might have something to do with the discovery of a bleach mark on my absoloute favoritist fuzzypants, but I'm not sure. (And yes, illogical down-ness should concern me.)

Oh hell... midterms in 11 days... I'm gonna DIE! *clutches twenty pages of vocabulary* *whimper*

Taped the first couple of sessions of my homework assingment. I really hate the sound of my voice on video.

I'm thinking of doing a 'bloopers reel' for my assingments... y'know, little things like the dog barfing on the notes, getting the answer totally wrong despite the fact that I'm supposedly reading it from the book, extending Xel-the-cat to his full nearly meter of length (not counting the tail; my cat is bloody huge!) to demonstrate "extention", the flailing in amused frustration at being totally unable to speak a sentence due to mispronounciation of basic words...

I finally watched Serenity this morning. What can I say, twas damn good, but I don't have the energy to fangirl right now.

Also watched "White Dragon"... now, there is an odd one... I recomend it, if only for the "downloading" scene.

Read the latest chapter of Glass Houses.



Oh, to hell with this, I'm gonna go play Fable for an hour, see if that helps...



*snicker* Upon watching the copy of my assingment that involved my cat, all I have to say is:
a) I hate the sound of my voice
b) Thank the deity of your choice that I have a very tolerant cat!
c) I hope my teachers have senses of humour or some bits aren't going to go over too well...
