so cute!

Bottle feeding abandoned kitten

Bottle feeding abandoned kitten

Tell me that doesn’t just warm your heart! I think we’re going to name him/her Wesley (since our other cat’s name is Giles…haha…get it? *cough* anyways…). He/she (I think it’s a she, but I’m not entirely for sure, so I keep bouncing around the pronouns) is kind of a handful but what can you expect, right? Wesley’s sleeping right now, I fed him this morning once I got home from taking Matt to work and after that I laid him back down, he’s been asleep almost an hour now. It kind of makes me worry for when I start working during the day - I hope he’ll be ok 8 hours alone by himself because I don’t think I’d have time to come home on my lunch break. I probably won’t be working a day shift until Saturday though, so since he should be almost three weeks old by then I’d think he’d be fine.

Anyways, on to topics that aren’t kitty-related. Like I mentioned, after some deliberation I’ve decided to keep the Betseyville boots. I’ll post a review later today, during one of Wesley’s other naps, haha. I still haven’t got my order from Wet Seal, which wouldn’t perturb me so much except that when I checked my tracking, the UPS site says it’s been in the same spot since the seventh. WTF UPS. NOT APPRECIATED. Oh wait, that was last night. Now it says it’s arrived in Lenexa, KS. About damn time. That probably means I’ll get it tomorrow, sweet. Still waiting on the zebra print leggings, the swap stuff from PRD, and my books/dvd. The books are probably going to take effing. forever. to get here because they’re being shipped media mail and I just got the shipping notice from one of them TODAY. I paid for the darn thing on Friday!! grr. That just seems a little sloppy to me.

I’ve already decided what I’m spending my shipping portion of my next check on. The Guess Borda shoes that were aforementioned, of course. At least one good bra and hopefully two. And I’m not sure if I remember how I found it - I think I found a badass Japanese punk-style vest on wists and then searched eBay, and then found this seller, etc. But I want THIS!:

Um. Yes please! I’m not even sure what I’d wear it with, I just know I NEED it. I also like this jacket, this skirt, and this skirt. Although I’m not a big fan of the wrap on that last one, I think it looks better with it but I’d probably be taking off or covering up the crosses or something.

We’ve started watching the second season of Dark Angel and I’m not liking it as much. Number one, Jessica Alba doesn’t look as good with straight hair, so I have no idea why they’d start styling her hair that way when it’s kind of an abrupt change for no reason. Number two, the whole Max and Logan thing is starting to irritate me. There’s a difference between holding something out for tension and dragging something out in a way that just ends up exasperating your viewers. Not to mention it looks like they’re setting up for some kind of lameass love triangle (we just finished episode two last night) and if so, YICK. I wonder if they switched writers or something between first and second season because there’s an obvious downgrade in quality already it seems to me.

We also watched the Incredible Hulk, which was alright. It wasn’t as good as everyone made it out to be, I’m sure it was a vast improvement to the first one, and Edward Norton = teh yum, that about sums it up. I wish it would have had a little more comedy or something, the only part in the movie we found really funny was the part where he says “hungry” instead of angry…and that was mostly because I made a joke about that a few weeks back, since I’m hypoglycemic and you REALLY wouldn’t like me when I’m hungry!

Now Wesley is awake again so I’m going to try and take care of him and put him back to sleep and then go take a shower. Expect the review at some point today, hopefully, I have some stuff to list on eBay as well and need to get it all done before work. I hate going in at two and getting off at ten thirty, it seriously just eats up my whole damn day. Can’t wait until I’m on a day shift!

Business Casual

Well, I’ve got about 40 minutes ’til I need to leave for work as of starting typing this. Here’s my attempt at business casual (and I think it fits the letter of the law at least!):

Zebra print cardigan - City Silk, $4 at the DAV (and I LOVE IT)

Tank top that was bleached with design by your’s truly - don’t remember where, I think it was like $5 on sale somewhere.

Tripp NYC Jeans - $40ish at HT (got ‘em when I still worked there, so they were like $23)

Irregular Choice Pin Up shoes - $27 off eBay

Bangle bracelets were part of a set I got off double clearance at HT.

Makeup: My Big Break lipstick by OPI, gold eyeshadow was a mix of Jane and Mary Kay golds with some Maybelline creme gold/white shimmer for highlighting, Jane blush, Maybelline powder, and Maybelline Great Lash mascara. I like the mascara but it’s not quite hypoallergenic enough for my eyes. I’d love to get some more of the Kiss Me Mascara - got a sample quite a while ago and LOVED that stuff. It makes little tubes around your eyelashes that don’t come off until you’re in the shower and tug on them a bit.

I did a pretty good job, I think, especially since I’ve wore this exact outfit before without the cardigan buttoned up (and I think I like it better with it buttoned, actually). I was going to wear my slightly less envelope pushing outfit today, but I figured I might as well start out with the more obnoxious one so they get used to it. ;) It’s a telecom customer service gig, so I wouldn’t think they’d be overly anal. My purse doesn’t go with the outfit very well at all - but it’s the ONLY one I have right now (well, there’s an old plaid purse which would probably clash horrible, and a green/yellow/orange leopard print crochet tote I made that would probably clash worse) so whatevs. I’m superrr psyched about getting my new purse later this week! *does the happy dance* The purse I have now was a gift from a Craftster member (as a result of the Great Etsy Fiasco - which I will post on later this week, I know I said I’d explain it Saturday) and I really do appreciate it, I’ll keep using it after I get other purses, but it just doesn’t go with everything. Also, I’m so short it hits the back of my knees when I walk, even when I wear it cross body. LAME.

One of the girls came in to school this morning with a smoothie in a bottle and was RAVING about it, she let me try some. This stuff is A-MAZ-ING.

She had the Strawberry Banana flavor, which I don’t normally like because I’m not a huge banana fan, but it was pretty good. I stopped by the grocery store after lunch with my dad and got a bottle each of the Berry Boost, Tropical Fruit, and they have a Mocha Cappuchino Whey Protein drink (42G of protein! hot damn!), which is the one I started drinking today and it is DELICIOUS. They were $3.38 each for a one liter bottle, which isn’t bad at all considering a bottle will probably last me 2-3 days. I’ve been feeling the urge to eat more green things lately as I have a bad tendency of just relying on carbohydrates, breads pastas etc. In fact I think one of the few things I’ve eaten in the last week that hasn’t been mainly carbs is mashed potatoes and green beans. Anyways, these smoothies don’t have any sugar added and are also low fat (which I don’t really care about as long as they taste good, but I know it’s a bonus for some people). The no sugar added (also - no high fructose corn syrup wooo!) is great for me because I’m a hypoglycemic - most of them have at least some protein in them which is GREAT too. Sah-weet.

So I’m making a hat and an art doll in a personal swap for a purse with a fellow Craftster member. It was supposed to be for her 1 1/2 year old and ended up being HUGE - not sure how, as I tried really hard to fit the measurements she gave me. But seriously, I can wear it. It’s a snug fit but I can :P Anyways, I wove in the end because I wasn’t sure if she’d want earflaps on it any more, since she’ll probably be the one wearing it, and PM’d her to ask - and now, she does, and I can’t for the life of me remember what hook size I was using. I remember it was a green hook and I THINK I put it back in my hook holder (I hope so haha, because otherwise I will never find the damn thing), so I’m guessing it was an I. But I’m not for sure. This is probably why I should use Ravelry more. At least I’m almost done with the hat, and I still have quite a bit left to do on the art doll (which, I really like how it’s turning out, I might do more), but it should be quick in working up. I’d like to get it done this week though. I also started a version of the cloche I posted pictures of yesterday, for me. It’s a bit chunker as it’s a worsted weight wool held with a 2-ply cotton blend iridescent yarn for most of it, it’s going to be blue (+multicolored yarn) for the bulk of it, have a black stripe, and I think instead of a rose I’m going to do a big black ribbon bow with a skull in the middle. The freaking cat took one of my sugar skull beads I spent so *&%$ing long on and hid it somewhere, I’m sure of it, because now I can only find one. So I’ll use that one on my hat and have to come up with different beads to use on my scarflette. GRRR CAT. But the hat will be cute, I’m sure of it!

Things I am excited for:

-my new purse(s)!

-completing my swaps on PRD - should be $40 richer + have a supercute plaid jumper by the end of the week :)

-starting Professor Layton and the Curious Village - just got it today (took FOREVER, I paid on the 11th!!). I’ve seen it described as a mix between series of puzzles and a point and click adventure game which sounds great. I love point and click adventure games, a while ago we downloaded the original Monkey Island and Matt and I played through it. He’s tons better at puzzles and adventure games though so I’ll probably be requiring his help some.

-beating Castlevania and Zelda

-mah boots! paid for ‘em today!

things to do (so I don’t forget! I have a feeling this will be a longgg week):

- finish swap hat and art doll

-enter Gala’s Polyvore contest!

-finish houndstooth purse before end of week!

and now I have roughly 3 minutes before I need to leave for work!
