Miho didn't like being called O-Ren, so after much discussion she told us to call her Miho instead. Or, just Princess is fine, too. Just don't call her late for dinner (or Loki will eat it ALL the little fat lumpkin that he is!).
Call it a blessing or a curse that we work at an animal shelter... I'm not sure. But I think we are officially "crazy cat people" now, with our feline population numbering five. Two new residents joined us last night. 9 month old Siamese brother and sister we have named Loki and O-Ren. They are confined to the office for now, introductions with our other three kitties being made under the door. Maybe we'll do some face to face, one on one later this week, but for the moment, they are still busy smelling every inch of the new home. Kitty pictures sure to be posted in the near future!
Saw Tenacious D in concert last night... they rocked... so hard...
A really amazing job musically with hilarity ensuing in between songs, as was expected; an awesome stage show that included a backup band with Charlie Chaplin on bass, Col. Sanders on drums, and the Anti-Christ on electric guitar; a rock-off against the Satan to save Kyle from becoming the devil's sex slave; a large dancing mushroom; bong hits; electrocution; and Lee revealing more talent then I knew he possessed. All in all a fucking AWESOME evening. For souvenirs, we got a black thermal D shirt and a brown "Cleavland Steamers" hoodie.
Anyone out there a Steamers fan? =D
Time to go buy the ingredients for the pumpkin cheesecake I promised to bring to Thanksgiving dinner.
I wanna play Oblivion...
Went in for my working interview at the animal shelter and they hired me - YAHOO! =D It will be so nice to go into work with my husband, [Evilmonk], have the same hours, and maybe even get a break or two with him during the day. Not to mention only having to drive one car!
It was a lot of information to absorb at once - especially since I have no prior knowledge of animal medical procedures, medications or vaccinations. But they said I done good, and they wanna train me, so I am more than willing to do my best to learn the ropes. Oh and yay for health insurance and benefits *thumbs up*
bigger yay for not having to wait tables anymore =P
I am heading off to give 2 weeks notice at my current place of employment. *happy dance* I am sick of waiting tables. It was a nice experience, and one I am glad I had, but I am tired of people thinking they are better than me, being overly demanding, or rolling their eyes at me when I am busting my goddamn ass for them. All for what is usually a meager tip. Don't get me wrong - not all customers are bad, and there are even some really nice regulars I will miss. And there are times when people have left me a ridiculously large tip that made me want to run out to the parking lot and wave and scream thank you! But overall, people are shit. And this experience as solidified my position that people are SHIT, save for a few gems scattered here and there.
Don't think I haven't prepared another job though before tossing in my waitress apron. The MD SPCA Animal Shelter where my husband, [Evilmonk], works has offered me a job! So, I get to occasionally see my baby at work on breaks maybe =} and have pretty much the same schedule and days off. How awesome is that?! And it will be much more rewarding to work with and for animal welfare than some shitty customer who lives to complain.
Because, like, y'know, everyone's doing it...

December 3rd - Tenacious D at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia... who's got tickets?!??! WE DO WE DO WE DO!!!! *flaps arms wildly and flies around the room*
I am the luckiest wife in the whole wide world =}
I come home to 2 dozen red roses, candles, dinner, and the house is clean! Does it get any better than that? What's the occaision? I dunno... it's Wednesday? Like I said, I'm just really, really incredibly lucky to be married to such a wonderful man. *sappy sigh*
Anyone who is a fan of B-movie, horror, gore-fest with lots of laughs and one-liners, you should definitely go check out "Feast" which is on DVD now. It was such a pleasant surprise when we watched it the other night. There were so many laugh out loud moments. This is an absolute gem of a movie!
D'OH! We totally forgot we had something to do today...
As we were getting ready to head out the door for our DC Fun Day... we got a phone call from the technicians who are hooking our televisions up to Neilsen ratings boxes. Damn, we totally spaced out on that... =B
So, as of today, we are an Oh-ficial Neilsen Family lol which is funny because we get three channels with our rabbit ears on the tv downstairs, which we watch maybe once every four months for about 30 minutes. The upstairs tv is hooked up to either the DVD player or a game console. But it's still $50 every 6 months I think *shrug* so let 'em gather their data. It won't be much =)
It's so nice and brisk today - in the 40s - it really feels wintery! I'm loving it (though I wish I could find some thermal pants to wear, my buttcheeks is so chilly!). We are going to go down to Washington DC today, visit the National Zoo and hopefully see the panda and cheetah cubs *crosses fingers* Always a sure bet for entertainment is the Great Ape house. I loves me the gorillas. For some reason the big silver backs make me feel especially sad though. They look so bored and demeaned... you can see it in their eyes... =/ I know the zookeepers take really good care of them all, but it is just no comparison to being in the wild (even though it is probably much safer for them and they live much longer).
Afterwards, we are going to Georgetown to meet my Dad who is coming in from Paris this afternoon, and my Aunt and Uncle (the other half of my liver heheh) for dinner. Matt and I have vowed not to eat anything today until dinner - when we anticipate eating our weight in steak. *burp*
For those of us in the United States who may have unlimited long distance calling on our home or mobile phones - you can make FREE INTERNATIONAL CALLS!
Well, we scrapped t he idea of going to Manhattan for Evil Dead the musical - we just don't have that much money! BUT, Wicked is coming to Baltimore YAY! We missed out on the Washington DC engagement last year - tickets were sold out in a day or two. Looks like tickets are just as hot this year. I was looking on Ticketmaster and seats available one minute were gone the next! So I panicked and got us two seats for Feb. 18th. =) It'll be a happy Valentine's outing for us I guess!
Who's coming with us? =D
Yay! We're gonna head over to the Maryland Rennaisance Festival tomorrow =D I'm charging my camera batteries tonight so look for a wiki of photos when we come home ^_^ I can't wait! I haven't been in almost ten years!
