Ask and ye shall receive :)

For Christmas, I asked for jewelry. Particularly diamonds. To quote mahself, I said, "Anything shiny." Thankfully, Adam's uncle is a jeweler and he custom designed this for me and hand set the diamonds :) I think it's just loverly. It says, "I love you. "

I have literally run out of things to do today at work. I've been ''done'' with my work since 10am this morning, and it's 4pm now and blogging about nothing is all I can do to keep myself awake!

My company has finally blocked Myspace from our interweb. :( Tis a sad sad day at XYZ Fashion Company because, I swear, 75% of the people here have a site and are actively online during the work day. And with 500 employees, that's quite a few angry Myspacers. This, however, has nothing to do with why I began blogging over here again. I started posting at Blogger a few weeks ago because I was wanting to share more information and stories about what's going on in my life, but so many of my co-workers and family members are on Myspace now that it makes it difficult to talk about personal things. Even jokingly.

Ironically, I've had writer's block lately, and I don't have much to say about anything. Why is it that you feel more comfortable telling your secrets to strangers than to those closest to you? That's a phenomenon that I'll never completely understand.

I'll be back soon with more posts about what a selfish bitch I am, how talk of joint bank accounts make me want to hurl, and how I'm still a control freak trying to control the uncontrollable (aren't we all??)...

Stay with me, now..

I have this friend Jeni, who used to work with me. She moved to San Diego. Upon moving, Jeni, myself and her friend Emma took a road trip to drop Jeni off in San Diego. At the end of the road trip, Emma and I flew back to Houston together. Shortly after, Emma and I became pretty good friends. She lives with her boyfriend, Eli, in some apartments pretty near my work.

Frequently, Emma would invite me over on Friday nights to do random arts and crafts (yes, I'm crafty, dammit) or to put together care packages for our frined Jeni or to decorate her patio for Halloween. Meanwhile, her boyfriend, Eli, would invite his friends over on the same night and they would play video games or whatnot. Sometimes, we would all order food and sit around and visit. Other times, we would all get together on a Saturday or Sunday and go to festivals like the Hot Sauce Festival in Katy, TX or the Ren Fest in Spring, TX.

Adam, Eli's best friend, and I were pretty much the only two that weren't paired off with someone when we went places. See, it was Emma and Eli, Everette and Nikki, Tyler and whats-her-face, and Perry and Alison. And me being Emma's best guud friend and Adam being Eli's best guud friend, we would spend a good amount of time talking to each other during these outtings or at the house hanging out.

On October 14, we all headed out to Spring, Texas to the Renaissance Festival. Emma and I had secretly plotted that this day would be the day that I try to hook up with Adam. Two bottles of Meade and a human-sized maze later, it worked. ;)

He said he'd call me the next day (which, in boy-talk I thought that meant in a week). The next day, he called and we hung out at my house and watched Evil Dead and other cheesy 80s movies. That night, it was raining really badly, but it was late and so he headed home. An hour later, he was banging on my front door and when I opened it, he explained that the freeways had already started to flood and it took him an hour just to make a u-turn at the corner.

It ended up flooding pretty badly that week, and I missed two days of work. Ren Fest was on Oct 14th, Oct 15th he came over my house, and he didn't leave till Oct 18th.

Since then, we've been inseperable.

It's been a hectic two months, but we're moving in together in March at the same apartments that Emma and Eli live, and he wants to marry me by the end of next year. He hasn't proposed or anything, but we've already picked out the ''chapel''..

Fattie Rattie Update

Chibby Chibberson

Nacho Rat

Panda Bear

Chibby rat passed away last month. She had the same lung condition that Quesa had when she passed away. It came on pretty quickly with Chib, though. She started breathing heavy and she lost a ton of weight. The day she died was pretty traumatic. (sorry if this offends weak stomachs) She had started to bleed out one morning, and Adam (my boyfriend) had just left the house. So I called him and told him that I was taking her to the vet (there's one right next to my apt complex).

But when I picked Chibby up out of her cage, she was very squirmy, like she didn't want to be held. I had done this before with Quesa, but I had never encountered this reaction. She simply didn't want to stay still. So I used my left hand to shift the towel I was using to cover her, so holdher tighter on the bottom, and I used my right hand to position her head, but when I did, she bit down on my index finger.

And I'm not talking about just any ole' bite. I'm talking about.. her front teeth actually met inside my finger. It was horrifying, really. She bit down so hard, I had to pry her jaws open so that she could release my finger. She died instantly after that.

At that point, I didn't know whether to cry over her death or over the massive amounts of pain that was shooting thru my finger at the time. I did both, I think! So I called Adam and told him to come back home because I didn't know what to do about my finger. It wouldn't stop bleeding and it was really starting to hurt like hell. Also, I had to move the babies out of the cage and wrap up Chibs for burial.

But my finger healed nicely, and I still have the same cute babies (they are much bigger now than they were when I got them), Nacho Rat and Panda Bear! And even though losing a pet never gets easier, I'm still glad that I keep such great pets as rats :)
