wapiko: cute Chi eating Youhei's pancakes (Chi - I CAN HAZ PANCAKES)
Sometime last month Bowser, my kitten, began playing fetch with me. It started when I was sitting on the bed one afternoon, doing some computer work, and I threw one of his toys on the floor so he would leave me alone.

Then he brought it back. We haven't stopped playing since.

He's so adorable when he plays. We usually play with these mesh catnip tubes that are basically Chinese finger-traps, filled with catnip and sealed on both ends. I throw one into the next room and he runs after it, and after retrieving it trots back to me with it in his mouth and drops it right next to me. When these toys go missing, he gets so restless. I have to occasionally dig them out for him from under Will's desk. When he sees me on my stomach with the flashlight and the ruler (to grab the toy out), he comes over to try to help me. XD

Today I threw one of his toys and it landed on one of the swivel chairs I own (the same style as this one with different colors and base). He tried to jump up onto the chair, first by putting his two front paws on the side of it, but this would cause the chair to spin. This happened a few times before he started crying, so Will had to grab the toy for him. The poor thing...

Even when it's 6am, it's time to play fetch. XDDD

I'm always on the fence when LiveJournal starts busting out new shit - and I do mean shit. This whole thing with the friends page changes is ridiculous and I'm so sick of all of the spam, primarily because I receive the email notification for old accounts that I don't want to log back into just to delete it all.

I'm still not ready to give up my 200+ icon capability that came with my permanent account, which my friend Miyu gave me a year and a half ago. All I had to do was pay for the rename token, and I regained my old journal name I had previously deleted and later pined for again. I've been very lucky. But I fear their demise is coming within the next couple of years thanks to the fuckwits in charge.

Woke up this morning just before 10:30, which gave me enough time to snuggle with Bowser and still make it to Panera for breakfast.

Oh, did I mention Will got me a kitty on my birthday? =3 His name is Bowser and he's one of my best friends. <3 Even Will loves him, and it melts my heart whenever they're snuggling together.

It's a fantastic lazy Sunday. I wish I could just stay here all week after work instead of having to go back to my mom's for Thanksgiving. The only thing I'm looking forward to is Black Friday with my aunt and cousin.

I'm 95% decided that I'm going to stay here for Giftmas. That might be difficult to break to my mom, but I'm a grown adult now with a job and a boy and kitten who are essentially my new family. I can't be going back all the time, nor do I want to.

I seem to use this journal for catch-up and spillover when I don't want to put randomity in my usual journal or my private journal.

Damn, I've just sneezed about six times in the past minute. (@_@)

Today is Sunday and I feel relatively accomplished, having finally connected the Wii to our flat-screen after about a week of being Wiiless. So many cord jacks, and somehow I did it right the first time.

Seven.

It's kind of a wonky TV. We have to wait about two minutes after turning it on before it actually comes on. I should really call a representative about that.

It's not yet 11am but I think I have so much more to do. I need to shower, I need to do dishes, clean, laundry, all of this before Will comes home in the afternoon from work. It's weird that he's working this afternoon but I think it's good for me because it gives me time to get everything done. I can't be productive with him here.

That said, I should probably stop wasting my time online and marathoning Ugly Betty on Netflix.

Things in my life are finally looking up.

I changed jobs. Even though I'm in a temporary position right now, I'm working full-time and I'm fairly confident that I will be a permanent worker with this company by the end of 2012. This is a proper 8:30-5pm office job and I have weekends off for the first time in months.

Finally, I have a purpose. I don't feel guilty for working only 15-20 hour weeks while Will works his butt off cooking at the restaurant, a popular diner chain that many who aren't familiar with mistake for a hotel. I'm going to be able to make enough money to pay my bills, and even buy menial things like tissues, shampoo, paper towels, toiletries. I took all of this for granted until I was unable to buy them.

We have less time together now, unfortunately, but that makes the time we do have sweeter. This has been one of the best weekends I have had this year, if not in the entire time since I've been back from Japan.

Tomorrow is our 2 year anniversary. I'm so happy we've made it this long.

I decided to get a bath and relax with my new bestie, Lana Del Rey, playing from my laptop in our adjoining bedroom.

I love this album so far.

A lot has happened to me, again. It's barely the second month of this year. If this year is anything like January was (a literal wreck), I'm going to die.

I'm attempting to make some pasta using cheese powder leftover from a box of mac & cheese. Hope it turns out okay.

In the past year and a half since I posted here, a world of change has happened to me. I found love, made some mistakes, got terribly hurt, but still, the boy and I manage. I went to Japan and thrived. I returned to America and graduated. I'm on the verge of getting my first proper salaried job, and maybe I'll even be engaged by the end of 2012.

I have a permanent account with a pretty layout that took me a few days worth of work over at LiveJournal. I have well over 200 slots for userpics, a handful of pictures uploaded, and a structured tag system.

Most of these things I can bring to DreamWidth some way or another, but that they already exist elsewhere makes it incredibly difficult for me to fully migrate here. But I am so annoyed with everything LiveJournal has been doing, and these new comment pages are ridiculous. With as many people as I've seen complain about it, something tells me it will be changed back by the end of the week, or even end of the year.

But if they don't?

Gah...thanks for "fixing" something that wasn't broken, LJ.
