This applies to many situations. Oh you has no money? Then don't get a pet. You has a question? Then you better listen to me.

I have a neighbor who is exactly like that. She just told us the other day that she had thousands of dollars in her bank account, then poormouths about how she couldn't afford $50 to get her dog groomed. She was upset that the groomer raised his price from $45 to $50.She drives a Lexus, goes on all these cruises and pays most of her daughter's bills and she can't afford an extra $5 for the groomer? Give me a break!!

While watching people accumulating large amounts of stuff,
I looked at the fish tank next to me, then the kritter keeper on my coffee table, then the two on my entertainment center, and the bar.... *sigh*... THANKFULLY those are all of my female bettas and they're going into the big tank. I keep telling myself it's only temporary. What? Me? I'm no hoarder. psht.

anti-rant: Its FINALLY getting cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its about mid-70s today. I'm hoping that it will continue to get cooler and this isn't just because of the rain.

Rant... Bowie and Lilly need to hurry up and get it on. I'm tired of "will they won't they"!

The part about the new electronic device made me laugh

rant: it is cold and rainy and now I feel like eeyore. Also my work wants me to work till the 21st of oct. till they can hopefully hire someone before that time. argghh! I am trying to reduce hours ASAP so I don't fail school and so the rest of my hair doesn't fall out due to stress and end up looking like Gollum from LOTR!!! MY WORST NIGHTMARE!I tell my BF at least once a week I am scared I will end up looking like Gollum at some point

Rant: That's why I quit working in the vet field. If it wasn't the patient's owners, the doctors drove me bonkers.

After having my head bitten off many times for bringing a phone call diagnosis to a vet, I started just leaving them messages like I was told or telling the client to come in for an emergency visit (250 bucks).

This lady called about a budgie who had a calcium problem and wasn't doing well. I gave her the 'You can come in for an emergency visit right now' routine and of course she was too busy. I left the vet a message and went on about my day. The next day she called and freaked out at me over the phone when no one had gotten back to her. Her budgie had died. I told her I was the one who took the call, I was so sorry, I'd left the doctor her message and that she could have brought the bird in yesterday but it was probably to late by that point.

The doctor talked to her and told her he'd never gotten a message at all, oh he was so sorry. He completely hung me out to dry. Then I got read the riot act for not letting them know right away. I can't tell you how many times I'd come right to them with a call and got yelled at. I'm STILL mad about it, as you can tell.

I worked as an uncertified vet tech for 4 yrs. This is why I'd rather be a wildlife biologist and work with wild animals than become a vet and work with insane pet owners and prissy dr's. It is also why, although I hope to eventually get a vet tech certification, it is only so I have a back up job in bad economic times

Rant: I hate this weather. It's cold, cold cold then warms up in the afternoon. I'm getting sick due to the temperature changes. I just want it to be hot all year long. I miss summer :(

I lowered Devin's water some, and seems to love it o.o; Much more active.
But now Vulcan has taken a turn for the worse. His eye is popping out =S It's got a weird glint in it... He's my tumor boy, so I think the time has come to put him out of his ... not quite pain, but then, what do I know? The tumor covers about 1/4 of one side of his body, and is creeping over his back. He's had the tumor for a little under a year... I'd say he's had a good, long life so far, especially for how bad his tumor is.
