Our First Car!


My mom's just bought a Hyundai Elantra! Second-hand of course.. but it's still in great shape.

Sure it's not the car I would have picked, but yeah, I'm still a little excited.

I can't wait to drive... (damn it I need to get license asap)

Come to my arms!

This really got me laughing

Cat Resolutions

My human will never let me eat his pet hamster, and I am at peace with that.

I will not slurp fish food from the surface of theaquarium.

I will not eat large numbers of assorted bugs and thencome home and throw them up so the humans can see thatI’m getting plenty of roughage.

I will not lean way over to drink out of the tub, fallin, and then pelt right for the box of clumping catlitter. (It took FOREVER to get the stuff out of myfur.)

I will not use the bathtub to store live mice forlate-night snacks.

We will not play “Herd of Thundering WildebeestsStampeding Across the Plains of the Serengeti” overany human’s bed while she’s trying to sleep.

I cannot leap through closed windows to catch birdsoutside. If I forget this and bonk my head on the window and fall behind the couch in my attempt, I will not get up and do the same thing again.

I will not assume the patio door is open when I race outside to chase leaves.

I will not stick my paw into any container to see if there is something in it. If I do, I will not hiss and scratch when my human has to shave me to get the rubber cement out of my fur.

If I bite the cactus, it will bite back.

When it rains, it will be raining on all sides of thehouse. It is not necessary to check every door.

I will not play “dead cat on the stairs” while people are trying to bring in groceries or laundry, or else one of these days, it will really come true.

When the humans play darts, I will not leap into the air and attempt to catch them.

I will not swat my human’s head repeatedly when he is on the family room floor trying to do sit-ups.

When my human is typing at the computer, her forearms are *not* a hammock.

Computer and TV screens do not exist to backlight my lovely tail.

I will not puff my entire body to twice its size for no reason after my human has watched a horror movie.

I will not stand on the bathroom counter, stare downthe hall, and growl at NOTHING after my human has watched the X-Files.

I will not drag dirty socks onto the bed at night and then yell at the top of my lungs so that my human can admire my “kill.”

I will not perch on my human’s chest in the middle ofthe night and stare until he wakes up.

I will not walk on the keyboard when my human is writing important adagfsg gdjag ;ln.

If I must claw my human, I will not do it in such away that the scars resemble a botched suicide attempt.

If I must give a present to my human guests, my toymouse is much more socially acceptable than a big livebug, even if it isn’t as tasty.

Reflecting on last year

I've decided to do a bit of reflection and check out what happened in 2006. Basically, I'm posting every last night of posts by the month.
So here goes..


"Hope this year will be a better year for me. It should. I'll be doing my degree and driver's license. :)"

"Maybe I should have only celebrated and considered it over when I had it in my hand. But now the joy is gone and the sadness is back, the sadness that feels like something deserved, the price of some not-quite betrayal."

"I made a promise to myself. I will never let anybody make me feel helpless, whether it's financially or emotionally. I want to be untouchable in that department."

"But it's also good to know what when you're unable to be, all you have to do is just ask and a hand comes to you. Whether or not it can pull you up, it's still there... holding you. Giving you comfort."

"I hope he's happy with his new-found relationship. It shocked me greatly, I admit. But I really hope he's happy. I wish him joy.
"I love you and that is my curse. But you don't know how to love- and that is yours." "

"It's almost as if she owns some chronological chart which tells you exactly how much fun you're allowed to have at every age.

"This pain. I know I have to ride it out. I hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers. You just have to breathe deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time, it can be managed but sometimes, it gets you where you least expect. Hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. I have to fight this through, you can't outrun it and life always makes more."


"That makes me so mad and so sad. I'm smad. Hmm.. smad. Has a nice ring to it yea?I think Whiskey is a nice name for a dog."

"Ahh.. the simple pleasures of life. So if you'll excuse me, I'm going to indulge myself in a nice chocolate and a good book."


"Funny thing though, his cologne somehow got me thinking of a certain episode where I stole half a bottle of Hugo Boss from a certain "then" cute individual. Seems like a lifetime ago."


"Perhaps we can't help turning and looking that person in the eye at that precise instant; perhaps we can't help but laugh or be struck by odd similarities. Perhaps we can't help but connect."


"I wish he didn’t disappear, that there was no gap. I wish I had time to catch up with him; to make him part of my life again; to be as we used to be.There was a time when I would wish upon a star."


"I just need to be reminded to breathe Because not everyone, my dear friend,Has this luxury."


"I am not about to relive my past problems, thank you very much. I've committed this year to making new disasters."


"Yes, you’re probably thinking biological clock in me is ticking.. but I am not a clock! I don’t tick!There’s nothing ticking in me. I don’t need ticking."


I’m going to have to study for my Finance Test. Heh.. I beat Anton in the previous one and he’s determined to do better.. and beat me. Hehehe. I can’t let that happen.


"I had quite a hangover the next morning.. but I think it was worth it."


"I don't really regret it. For one night, I felt on fire and sexy and desired a little. For one night, I was a little "promiscuous". A single girl's allowed a little fun eh?"

Interesting eh?

I sounded very "negative" at times. I didn't realise I was like that.
I suppose it was a tough year..

I wonder what 2007 will bring.
