I'm not sure if I'd like to go around my entire life being called 'Apple' but, whatever floats your boat. I suppose if Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter dislikes her name that much, she can always change it at some point.

Reminds me of some people who named their son, 'Early Morning Thunder'. The couple lived in a small village close to my hometown which had basically been taken over by a bunch of late 70's and '80's highschool graduates who were living a '60's kind of lifestyle. I gather it was early in the morning, and thundering when the child was born so.... you got it.

Using that theory, Gwyneth must have just eaten an apple prior to giving birth.

Anyhoo... the furry monster woke me up around 7:45. Furry face rubbing against mine, giving me her morning 'meow' along with a loud purr. Normally, if I say "No, go back to sleep" she does but, her food trough needed replenishing so, she wasn't falling for that trick.

There's a large collection of fur stuck to the side of one of my planters. The varmint likes to rub up against EVERYTHING.

I really need some caffeine. In.a.big.way.

Andale.

I normally skip over any lyric posts cause, that's the way I am. Unfortunately, I referenced this song in a friend's journal, and now I can't stop humming the stupid thing. Since misery likes company perhaps, I can hook a few of you as well ;)

Lyrics for David Cassidy - I Think I Love You

Ba, ba, ba, ba.
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.

I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
Like all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knockin' at my brain.
Before I go insane I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread:
"I think I love you!"

This morning
I woke up with this feeling
I didn't know how to deal with
And so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself and never talk about it
And didn't I go and shout it
When you walked into my room.
"I think I love you!"

I think I love you.
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for.

I think I love you.
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way.

I don't know what I'm up against.
I don't know what it's all about.
I got so much to think about.

Hey, I think I love you.
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for.

I think I love you.
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way.

Believe me,
You really don't have to worry.
I only want to make you happy
And if you say,
"Hey, go away," I will, but I think better stay,
I'd better stay around and love you.
Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face:
Do you think you love me?

I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.
Oh, I think I love you.


Hope I got a few of you. If I gotta hum this flippen song all day, you can too ;)

Good Morning, rise & shine! [Feb. 29th, 2004|07:54 am]

What do you get after bragging to someone that your cat likes to sleep more than you do?

You get a cat that wakes you up at 5:30 am to be fed.

Staggered out to the kitchen, and filled the trough for Millie while she pranced around the kitchen denouncing the delay. After being fed, she went through her morning routine of using her litter box, covering her business, getting out of such, and proceeding to cover up the hardwood floor with the same type of pawing motions. True to form, she sashayed over to her trough, and went through the motions of covering the kitchen linoleum with paw air strokes as well.

Exhausted from the exercise, she wandered back into the bedroom, curled up on the bed, and went back to sleep.

I think not ;)

I proceeded to prod her with my forefinger telling her she wasn't going to sleep if she'd woken me up. I received several blank stares from the one eye she opened. Never willing to give up easily, I prodded her with my finger several more times.

She bit my finger.....lol

I'm awake, drinking coffee, and my cat is sleeping in the bedroom.

I need to tidy up around here, get some fresh air for a bit, and study today.

Next.

Oh... and the pair of neighbourhood dogs I thought looked like mini buffalo? Bouvier des Flandres.

Big dogs.

I was scanning Ebay's Lawn & Garden section, and found pages, and pages of 'garden flags'. Lots of prints to choose from. Yuck. Decided to filter the items to reflect 'Canada only' which got rid of the flags. Unfortunately, Canadians appear to have a love for 'Garden Gnomes'. I can't stand lawn ornaments. I think I've seen too many pink flamingoes, old tires, canoes, and bathroom fixtures planted in people's front yards. Gotta love those toilets filled with daisies ;)

My darling sweet cat turned into an 'attack cat' tonight. She grabbed my hand, started kicking it with her hind feet, and chowing down on the soft fleshy part. I think it means she's feeling affectionate or something. Then again, who really knows what's going on in a cat's brain?

I have a ton of stuff to accomplish this weekend. No doubt, I'll write about it later ;)

This morning my brain kept telling me I should take a sick day. Did I listen? Nooooooooo. Worst flippen day I've had in a number of years. Not.going.there.

Anyway. Good week for the Milliemeister.

While my Millie has a terribly sweet personality, loves being pet, she's been fairly timid. In fact, she hasn't liked being held, or spent much time on my lap. That all changed on Wednesday when I picked her up, she relaxed on my arm, and I walked around the apartment with her until my arm started to get tired. As well, out of the blue, she jumped up on my lap the same night, and spent a fair amount of time just laying there. Pretty good huh?

Wednesday morning, she also went out on the balcony and checked things out. Big change from the previous excursion.

Monday morning when I was getting ready for work, she periodically hid under the bed. I'm not sure but, I think she might have thought I was taking her somewhere. Tuesday, she didn't hide but, she looked as if she would run at any moment. Wednesday? She was out and about, talking to me, and no problems. Same with today... no apparent fear.

Tonight when I got home, she was waiting for me. Someone said I would likely establish a routine with her, and the routine appears to be.... from the moment I enter the apartment... she wants attention. Lots of attention. She talks away to me, rubs up against everything, climbs all over me, and I pet her tons.

I'm enjoying my Millie. I'm so glad I got her.

Tonight, I have a few dishes to wash, plants to water, and studying.

I'm home to study for the afternoon.

Okay... so, Millie goes and uses her cat litter box, finishes, and studiously covers everything. She then gets out of the box, and makes the same pawing motions on my hardwood floor. Then... she goes to get some food from her dish, and makes the same motions on the floor over there.

What is up with THAT? rofl

Okay.... so she amuses me.

I'm female, I'm allowed to change my mind.... [Feb. 24th, 2004|12:37 am]

Lord, that was a day. There's Mondays, and then there's Mondays.

Ran an errand after work, and came home. I was expecting major enthusiasm from my new family member upon my arrival but, she looked to have been woke from a coma, and it took several minutes for her to get her faculties. Then.... I got enthusiasm. She likes to talk in little meows, and sounds which resemble 'clicks'. She also loves to rub up against you. Actually, when she's in her mood to rub, she'll rub up against anything. The walls, doorways, loveseat, plants... whatever... she's not picky. Cute little gal. First entire 'work' day she's been by herself, and everything appeared to be fine. Big dent in the blanket on the end of the bed, food munched upon, and new turds in her box. Aaaaah, a cat's life. Sleep, eat, and poop.

This week will be busier than the norm. In addition to the regular, I have a team meeting, head office conference call, and a 'lunch & learn' with one of the law firms. Also, need to motor on my course. Went over the entire schedule, work I've completed, work yet to be completed with the 'Fearless Leader', and he seemed satisfied.

I've changed my furry monster's name to 'Millie'. 'Georgette' (aka George) just wasn't working. I constantly had visions of our former lobby cat whenever I called her that. 'George' loved to bite, attack your hands or ankles, and had a *look* which could melt sheet metal if he so desired. 'Millie' isn't like that. She's just sweet. It's an all together different experience having her than my previous male cats.

It's time to go dive under the flannel.

Cat food out - done
Water dish full - done
Scooped out little turds to take out to the garbage - done
Bed made with little blanket on the end to keep my cat warm - done

I found myself saying to my furry monster this morning "Now, you be a good girl today. Mama has to go to work but, I'll be back later"

Where the HECK did that come from? I'm suddenly turning into a mush and calling myself mama.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
