chasing kitties makes for a tired little ferret girl.

haven't settled on a name yet. currently, i'm leaning towards kiku, cosette or smidge.

suggestions are welcomed!

half of my boyfriend's christmas present got here in the mail. the box is huge and there are pictures everywhere, so i couldn't even keep from seeing what was in it.

i message him on AIM and tell him, and i get this in reply:

so I guess the card that says 1 free ferret isn't needed?

he's going to take me shopping sometime this week for supplies and a ferret. i seriously started crying.

he cheated on our 100$ limit, but you don't see me complaining. i'm letting him open one of his presents tonight, it's only fair, really.

so. i quit my job this morning.

my boss was an awesome vet, but a horrendous boss. she'd continually flip out over things, let her temper get the best of her and take it out on me. she actually started slamming her fist into her forehead one day because i put a cat in the wrong cage. make sense? not at all.

the last straw was when she made celia call me yesterday to tell me that i couldn't wear kitty ears and paint my face today. what the hell. 1. couldn't call me herself? and 2. she already told me i could. she has no life outside of work and expects us to do the same. i have been regularly working 12 days in a row these past few months. she's been through 8 people since april, when i was hired. and she thinks it's them, not her.

she actually flipped out on me on friday because i didn't want to work 2 weekends in a row, cause that would mean NINETEEN days of work. wtf. not all of them are full days, granted. but i still need a break. anyone would. and the only response i get is "it doesn't matter, kristin i work all the time." yeah, maybe you shouldn't own a small business in this economy, bitch.

i cried on and off most of yesterday afternoon and i tossed and turned in bed last night for 2 hours because i felt like someone was squeezing my chest. when i woke up this morning, i talked to darrick and he suggested i should probably quit. i asked him if that was really okay with him, and he's being extremely supportive and awesome over the whole thing.

left my keys and a letter on her desk this morning and i'm off to job-hunt. ...sigh.

oh-ho-ho ho.

almost times for halloween.

it's down to a decision. and a hard one. harley quinn or princess leia. (slave leia, bitches)

i'm pretty sure i'm sticking with leia this year. i'm missing a few pieces of the harls costume that would be tricky to get together (mask, shoes, fixing the hat so it doesn't look like two flaccid penii....LE SIGH.)


shit, so many things i want to be and hardly any time to get it all together. i would make an awesome rogue.

okay. yeah. darrick and i are watching pushing daisies and it is ridiculously morbidly cute. we finished off californication. oh, hai, david duchovny. no wonder you have a sex addiction. i only saw an average of 15 boobs per episode. plus one female ejaculation scene that gave me the jibblies. and not in the good way.

we had our party sunday night. it was by no means big, but it was fun.

i'm bored. bored with most aspects of my life, actually.

what a long weekend. and apart from the beginning and the end, a very good weekend.

goddamnit. kurt vonnegut died last night.

oh, ben gibbard. you're amazing.

so that makes another guy who's led me on and broken my heart.

none of my friends came out for my birthday/birthday party.


started a new job. they're training me as a veterinary technician. i've already learned how to take/develop x-rays and process bloodwork.

well, damn. i had a date last night.

i don't normally like/watch music videos, but i enjoyed this one.

sometimes, if it wasn't for edgar and jasper, i don't know what i'd do.

hey, wow. kind of a depressing year. i'll do better this year.

What Kristin Means

You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life.
You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip.
People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

eh. not all true. but some of it is definitely close.

more books to read. that brings the tally up to nearly 20. i don't think i've ever had such a significant stack waiting for me and the thought thrills me. as does my 160-some netflix queue.

books i got for christmas:
believers - charles baxter
hot water music - charles bukowski
middlesex - jeffrey eugenides
high lonesome - joyce carol oates
how we are hungry - dave eggers
water for elephants - sarah gruen
desolation angels - jack kerouac

i saw both sweeney todd and the golden compass on my 4 day christmas weekend. both were stellar. i am rather sick of hearing people bash the golden compass based on its "anti-christian" messages. sigh. it's okay for c.s. lewis to fling out allegories, but heaven forbid someone refer to souls as daemons. i really don't understand the way things work sometimes. i did get a chuckle out of the fact that they played the trailer for the next narnia movie as a preview before the golden compass. hollywood could care less and it makes me laugh.

i've been watching a lot of independent-ish movies lately, and they've made me feel extremely introspective...(waitress, c.r.a.z.y., tarnation, the namesake.) i'd recommend all of those to anyone who's interested. especially waitress.

i leave tomorrow night to spend the weekend and new year's eve in greensboro. hopefully that will start my year out right, but i suppose we'll see.
