8:54 pm - PAWS Walk 2014
I didn't think to post this here before, but Zac and I will be walking with all of our dogs (Star will probably ride in her wagon) in the PAWS Walk on Saturday! Our team is Team Lucy in honor of Lucy (obviously). The PAWS Walk is a 5k to support PAWS (Progressive Animal Welfare Society), which is a no-kill shelter near Seattle that adopts out 3k+ dogs and cats each year and also has a wildlife rehabilitation center. They also offer services for free for people with pets with behavior problems in hopes of preventing those animals from being surrendered to shelters.

It's a great cause and we're still a bit shy of our goal. If you're interested in donating, please click the link or image below and check it out! We only have a little over a day to raise funds!

4:26 pm - Holiday Cards
I decided to do holiday cards (well, these will probably be New Year's cards). If you'd like one, comment below with your address. Even if you think I have your address, please comment with it anyway. This way I can be sure I have the correct address, and I'll also know who actually cares about getting a card this year. Comments are screened so no one else can see your address. If you're sending out cards and would like to add me to your list, let me know and I'll reply with my new addy.

9:59 am - Writer's Block: Going Up?
If you had to be stuck in an elevator for 24 hours with one TV character, who would it be and why?

Nathan Fillion! I expect he'd be entertaining, not to mention fun to look at.

Poll: The ending of Mocking Jay sucked. Real or not real? Discuss. How would you have ended it?

Do not read comments if you have not yet read the book and don't want to see spoilers.

How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

We made Black & Tans (well, Half & Halfs) at home and now I need to go to bed because I have to be at work tomorrow morning at 8am. Yippee.

11:27 pm - Sebastian
I'm tired so I can't go into the whole story right now, but for those of you who don't follow my FB closely or GL, Sebastian has been having focal seizures (not full blown body shaking ones, just mostly mental ones and eyes). We don't know why yet. He had been a little weird off and on for a while but it wasn't until yesterday when he had a particularly weird episode that involved him crying out that I really realized what was going on. It could be anything from the Prozac he's on to an infection to a brain tumor.

He's acting like a totally different cat. Imagine a cat that's stoned and wandering around aimlessly and not really interacting with anyone or anything. That's what he's been doing. And the focal seizures continue.

I'm scared. :( I want my bratty baby boy back. This cat that's walking around my house right now doesn't act the slightest bit like him. :'(

current mood: distraught

Climate change. I feel like that's a source of a lot of current and soon-to-be problems.

What is on your holiday wish list this year? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

My wishlist almost always mostly involves things for the dogs (new toys and such). Most of the things I *really* want aren't things people can give me (like an amazing job that has normal hours and pays well, 100 pounds magically gone off my body, to not feel so unhappy all the time). But if I had to pick something material, either a new computer or an upgrade to this one would be nice. My big ticket item would be a new car as mine is on its last legs, but that's going to happen eventually when I find the right one at the right price (and hopefully that will happen *before* my current car dies on me).

Which December holidays do you celebrate, and why? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

We celebrate Christmas here because it's tradition. We usually spoil our dogs rotten by showering them with toys and treats. :)

What do you want done with your body after you die?

I really don't know. I think at this point, I'll just let whoever ends up being in charge of my deadness-legal-stuffs decide. The idea of being cremated has never appealed to me, but the idea of being embalmed and stuffed into a coffin sounds equally, if not more, horrifying. But in reality, I am pretty sure that there is nothing after life, so I will likely not be sitting around on some cloud watching to see what happens or if my wishes are carried out. So hopefully I won't care, and if that's the case, then cremation is probably the most environmentally friendly thing to do.

But! If I'm cremated, I do want my ashes somehow put with those of my furbabies, be it scattered or whatever. Or if someone decides to bury me instead, I'd like their ashes near me (mixed in the soil, whatever, idc).

OK, edited to add after thinking about it more: NO viewing. I am super serious about that. I don't want to be made up to look like something I'm not and shown off. If my immediate family wants to see me, they can, but I don't want any craziness with the fake makeup and a public viewing and stuff. *shudder*
