it doesn't look like i'm going to the Reverend Horton Heat show at Vinyl one month from now. i'm missing Social Distortion, too. and that hurts. a chance to see Mike Ness in person. sigh.
we have to get the scooter back. i need transportation. i don't mind taking a scooter all over the place. i've come to terms with it. and i will get to know the geography. right now i have no idea where i am. and the other night at the lights was the first time i've left the house since july 4th. doc said i did good at kmart when we went to go look at trees after the lights. we still don't have one. i'm hoping this weekend. oh, no. this weekend is rent. maybe we'll have a little money left over for a tree.
i ordered doc's xmas present monday, and it turns out i ordered the wrong thing. bah. i can still return it and get the one he wants. i don't think he ordered me any lights, though. i slept in my room in the dark, but i didn't like it. i put the quilt all the way over my head. simon only lays under the covers with me while i'm petting him. once i drift off to sleep, he leaves and curls up at my back or legs.
i didn't order my xmas present. i guess i should, but i have to wait and see if i have the money in my account to do so and still pay my share of rent. if not, i'll wait until my birthday. it's just a Sex Pistols Zippo. i can wait. there was a pipe lighter i wanted on amazon.com, but it was too much. i would just take the instert out and put it in my Sex Pistols lighter, heh.
today i put the books up. did i mention i unpacked the kitchen? finally. so that's my bathroom and the kitchen. which reminds me, i need to clean my bathroom today. the tub is full of grimy paw prints from every cat in the house playing in there. i'd like to take a hot bath today, so the tub definitely has to be cleaned out. i'm not bathing with paw prints.
we looked for a scratchy thing for sai sai. i think we're going to have to order it online. he has demonstrated a love of corrugated cardboard, so i want to get him the box with cardboard lined up inside of it that you sprinkle catnip into and let them go at it. i figure if i put that in my bedroom, my record spines will be safe. right now i have all of my records covered with a sheet. simon just wouldn't leave them alone. the sheet fools him. not so clever now, are you simon?
he's been resisting his training the past two nights and i don't know what it is with him. at feeding time, i tell him to go to his room and he goes into the mudroom to wait his turn, most times he goes in there on his own and waits for me to shut the door. the past two nights, i've told him to go to his room, and he's gone to my room. so i have to go get him and lead him back into the kitchen and get him into his room. the entire time, felix is howling at me to put the food down and lelu is circling my legs. i'll have to change the command to keep from confusing him. usually i refer to our bedroom as just the bed.
doc is up, time to go make coffee.
