1. I ate beans yesterday. So, this morning I'm...ahem...musical. So musical, in fact, that I've musicalled myself out of my own room a couple of times. It's at these times that I'm glad I'm not married or living with someone because....whoa, just whoa.

2. I'm kind of itchy all over today and I'm hoping that it's not because of the Lamictal. I so want to be able to take it and to be able to tolerate it. I'm going to get a refill of my allergy meds today, so maybe they will help with the itchiness.

3. I'm supposed to have a test in my College Math class today, but since I have missed the last two classes (it only meets twice a week), I won't be taking it. I started to freak out a little bit, but then I re-read the syllabus. It turns out that there are 5 tests this semester when I thought there were only going to be three and the prof. said that the final could replace the missed test. So, yay.

4. When I woke up this morning, Mija my notorious-monster-cat, was sitting on top of my black armoir on his hind legs, swatting with his front paws into thin air. As I became more awake I realized what he was looking at. The ceiling fan. He was trying to catch the ceiling fan.

5.I watched a movie on The Family Channel last night that I actually liked. What does that say about me?

6.My eldest female cat, Silver, gets the stitches from her ear surgery taken out tomorrow. I am not looking forward to taking her to the vet, but I am glad she's getting the stitches out and that no infection has developed where the stitches are. I feel kind of weird with her in the carrier in the car. She hates it, cries and I try to comfort her. The thing is, I wind up saying the same things over and over and over again. The most inane things come out of my mouth when I take the cats to the vet like,"Whatcha doin' in there?", or repeatedly saying, "I know." in a sympathetic tone after every vocalization they make. At least she doesn't pee and then sling it around like Little Bit does. The last time I took him to the vet, I wound up having to clean pee off the inside of my windshield. Is there such a thing as Kitty Valium? If there is, I should definitely get some.

7. I deleted my Myspace account the other day in a moment of anger. How I could be angry at a website is beyond me, but there you have it. I guess I just got tired of all the flashing adverts, the "am I hot or not" rating thingys and the mind-bogglingly enormous amount of genuinely shallow (we're talking less than puddle deep) people on there.

8. I found a cd in one of my desk drawers last week that was Classical Guitar music. I opened it up and it turned out to be a CDRW that my mom had made for me three years ago for my birthday or something. I'd never listened to it. So, I uploaded it to my computer. I'm listening to it now and I like it alot, but just now, it's making me want to go back to bed. It's like my computer is singing me a lullaby. And also, I feel really guilty for not listening to the cd sooner.

9. I bought the X-Men Trilogy (X-Men, X-Men-United and X-Men-The Last Stand) about 3 days ago and I think I've watched all of the movies about 5 or 6 times each since then. I think my inner-child is showing. I can't wait for more X-Men movies.

10. I've also been coloring (with real crayons in real coloring books) in my Winnie the Pooh and Sponge Bob Square Pants coloring books. Now I remember why I liked to color so much as a child. It makes me feel calm and the smell of the crayons almost makes me flashback to childhood. Not that my childhood was particularly pleasant, but the crayons always were.

11. I just blew another masterpiece. (Note to self~ Get some Bean-O.)

12. I realized the other night while watching "Real Sex-The Best of Real Sex" that I'd seen nearly all the episodes they were showing parts of. Then, I realized that I've been watching it ever since it came on HBO, which was in like 1992. Consequently, this made me feel like a dirty old lady.

13. Wow. I didn't think I could come up with thirteen today. But here we are-just the two of us. Speaking of "just the two of us", do y'all ever wake up singing bad 80's pop songs in your head or is it just me?

Lastly, but not leastly, a song for your listening pleasure. I told y'all I was musical today.

Pretty song; liked it a lot. Sorry for your pain (a few posts previous) - was wondering while reading for a few weeks who you had lost in your life and now that's a bit clearer. That sucks, and I offer the cliched "I'm sorry", because I am.

Thanks so much, AIS. The "I'm sorry" is not cliche to me. I didn't know what else to say to David's wife. I just kept saying "I'm sorry" and hugging her so tight. When someone you love dies, it's hard to really say anything else. Personally, I was just too overcome with grief and shock to even think of anything else to say.

Only other thing that I ever found helpful during grief was to be reassured that there's no "right" way to feel. Because it seems like everyone feels like somehow they're not doing it right - they should be feeling sadder, or happier, or more reflective, or something. But really, however you're doing it, assuming it doesn't involve weaponry or public nudity, that's right for you.

And yes, they do make Kitty Valium. My college roommate's cat attempted to cram itself through the cage on its carrier during any sort of car trip, so on the drive from upstate NY to Boston (8-ish hours), they got a prescription. That cat drooled for 2 days.

I had a myspace account to allow me to view pages, and I deleted that on Wednesday because I just have no patience for junk-mailed solicitations.

Blah blah blah... never fear, my home computer committed suicide last night, so I'll be much less babbly over the weekend.

I agree that there's no "right" way to feel concerning grief. I mean, everyone is an individual and expresses themselves in individual ways. That's one thing I'm glad I didn't have a problem with. I never thought that I was doing anything wrong or not doing something right concerning my reaction to David's death. After all, I've never experienced the loss of someone close to me before David. I still feel like I'm in unfamiliar territory, but it's getting better. I don't have as many bad days in a row as I did right after he died and my body doesn't ache as much. I swear to you, when he died, I reacted not only emotionally, but physically. My body felt like someone had beaten me with a big stick. Fatigue is not even close to describing it. I just hurt everywhere.

I'll have to check out the Kitty Valium thing with my vet. I don't want my cat to be drooling for two days, though. I prefer them to be alert like they normally are. I just want something to calm them down a little bit on the days when they have to travel. Just enough to make them sleep, I guess.

Don't worry about being chat-chitty here. Write as much or as little as you want to. I love getting comments. It makes me feel connected to the world.

I hope you get your computer fixed soon. I know it's a pain to be without it.

A physical pain. Yes. Because last night, in order to participate in my weekly Bachelor Snark, I had to dredge out my old laptop and it's just not as good. Woe is me.
