i don't expect this to convince the die hard conservatives out there. i don't expect anything i say to, they are too far gone for that. but i finally have proof to my satisfaction. i didn't read about him saying it, i heard and saw him saying in on live TV. i saw the letter myself. it was in my hands. i'm sure i filed it away in the cabinet. and that is enough.
going back to sleep and getting up again helped. it also helped that i got a message from that lady that my missing teeth are okay. she had a date that played with her upper the entire date and it grossed her out. one of the main reasons i don't wear my partial. i was playing with it all the time and that used to gross me out as a kid when people did that. i didn't want to be that person. also there's the not being able to talk thing. talking is important to me. as you can well imagine, i am a chatterbox. when i stop talking, people get concerned. so i'm going to wait a few hours and then message her back with my email. she wants someone to go to open mics with, too. i'm pretty sure she is a comedienne. so the open mic at the Human Experience would be the best for us to go to. which works out because it is the one i want to go to the most. it isn't a slam, it's an open mic, so there isn't just poetry, there is music and comedy too. this could be the start of something cool. a new friend. she's not looking for a serious relationship, so i can relax about that, and now she already knows about my teeth, so i can doubly relax about that.
Leia has an interesting personality. it is slowly coming out in bursts as she gets better and better. the bonding with doc worked, she is attached to him. i'm so happy about that. if he is laying down, she is laying down with him. if he is hanging out and she's not busy going kitten crazy, she is hanging out with him.
We think that Chewy may have been bred to be a show dog and given up because he has a gimpy hip. from what information i can gather and the pictures and drawings i've seen, he is a perfect specimen of his breed. the only "flaw" in him is that his back left leg limps every three steps. not enough to give a dog up unless you were looking for perfection. it would also explain why he's so mellow, if he's purebred for showing. they would breed the mellowest animals. it also explains why he is so well behaved and never barks or whines. what gave it away was his little odd habit. when we go outside and he is really excited, if i say "up up up" he jumps up on the table and strikes a regal pose. he's done this a few times now. we really got a treasure with him.
Major is going to be one huge cat if he keeps gaining weight. not just his stomach is getting fat, but he's getting beefy. his neck and legs are getting thicker. the only thing staying thin on him is his tail, which is starting to look pretty silly. he's not obese by any means and he is very active when he's not watching TV. but he's getting big.
Vader has finally grown into his legs and he is one tall cat. he's still lanky, but he's not all legs and head like he was a few months ago. he's coming into his own. but he's either REALLY independent, or he doesn't know his name. and i fear it's the second. it was up to doc to teach him his name. and doc isn't good at that. i had to take over teaching Leia her name because she kept disappearing and we couldn't call her out because she didn't know her name. that's not right. now she knows it and can decide for herself if she wants to come out once she knows we want her. she still wants affection and attention at all times. a real princess, this one. and doc will spoil her awful.
