So I come home today. The back window is open, nothing bad. Then. I see a FARKING big hole in the corner of the screen. About the size of . . . hmmmm . . . why are my shamrocks, who had just bloomed again after months and were looking so gorgeous just a few minutes ago all plucked out and scattered on the carpet? Oh, and back to that hole in the screen. hmmm . . . And why is my cat staring at the big fat black squirrel staring back at me? Wait a minute . . . .

A SQUIRREL?????

In the room.

OH for F's SAKE.

An epic chase commences. Over some beautiful clay bowls, over the kitchen table, on top of the rocking chair, over my pile of junk, over the stove, leaping. Driving me nuts. LOL.

My dear mother opens the back door, and after a few laps the squirrel gets a clue . . . and he's outta there!

And the shamrocks? I throw the remnants into the yard. For the squirrel, who I feel kind of sorry for. It wasn't his fault. The shamrocks will recover in a few days . . . but still . . . they were my birthday present.

We still have to fix the screen and we're billing the squirrels who live in our attic.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

So, my rant for today... Because my roommate has many lizards/reptiles/amphibians... The place that said YES to myself and my boyfriend, said no to ALL of us.

I decided, we're getting a thundershirt for our pup. I mean not only will it save me a headache (I am very sensitive to high pitches, and unfortunately large dogs tend to be the whiniest!), it will calm him down, and we may not have to resort to paying noise polution fines >:(

The people we were going to rent from, shot us down cold. They had said YES to us, initially, but then when she met our roomie (who owns reptiles) she said no. Not to him, but ALL of us, thinking we were JUST like him and will own billions of animals.

He is now finding a place on his own. We aren't going to be shot down because we KNOW someone.

Ugh, my rant for today (I've already posted this on a different thread).

So, some kid in my class takes a photo of me and 2 of my friends, puts it on facebook and calls it "the nerdy group in my class". What a......bad person! I've already been VERY close to thumping this kid into next week... but violence is not the answer! Still I don't think I can trust myself NOT to hit him.....

Us teenagers don't need all these people adding extra "grief" to our lives.
I'm glad I got that out though, I needed to!

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
