Daily Oreo Update and Other Stuff

So ends a very odd work week.

Looks like kitty will be able to come home tomorrow for the weekend. We'll see how she does not under the vet's supervision. Apparently he is impressed by her regaining some mobility in her back legs but isn't sure if she will progress any more than she already has. I say, if she has already defied the odds, she must be one strong cat. I'm hopeful. That's the end of the Oreo update for today...

On to the Speed Dating update (which sounds oddly like"allow myself to introduce... myself"...). It is now official. I suck. The deadline came and went and not one single match came back for me and although I am not surprised (nor am I even remotely offended), I do feel mildly (and by mildly, think like nano-particle small) humiliated... But I am very proud of the others who went who all had much better luck than I did. So, for next time... assuming that I a) decide to come out of the den that I shall now hibernate in until such a time that I may not suck and b) there is another 2 for 1 SD in a years' time... I will not sandwich myself between Celebrity Boyfriend Steal and Girl... Two tall and exceptionally adorable kick ass women.

If anyone is looking for me in the next little while, I will be at home... playing video games, writing letters to fictional characters and baking rice krispie squares...

And that reminds me... must try and return the Pee Pee pillow to Ikea... "It was lumpy when I took it out of the package..." all the while trying not to roll my eyes.

So this weekend, will we be rigging up some kind of kitty wheelchair (like putting a board with wheels under her pelvis and hind legs to give her some mobility for the meantime?

I may make one anyway... because it's just too damned cute a concept.


Also, sorry about the SD experience. Again, probably not the place for YOU to find your potential someone. As you said, it was impossible to get to know anyone there.

Here's to Oreo! Kicking not only the odds but will also be kicking butts of all kinds soon enough!

With kitty just coming home and needing attention and all, I will catch you and roomie next time I am up in TO. I wander there all the time :)

Have a great weekend!

Don't speak to soon chickie - looks like SD screwed up after all!Here's hoping to good news on all fronts - we're thinking about you and Oreo and we just know he will improve :)
Oh and ya....so what if you don't get matches....that's still better than having a guy email you thinking you are someone else!

Or someone calling your girl cat "he"...

Just kidding...

Thanks for the thoughts :)

Glad to hear the Oreo is doing better. It's scarry stuff when a pet is really sick. She sounds way too tough/ornery/demanding to stay sick. I imagine she's forcing herself to get better quickly so that she can break out of the vet's office to go home and give you a piece of her mind while you shower her with treats to try to make up for the whole thing.

With the SD thing, I would have sat there and watched the interactions, pretending to be a psychologist running a big experiment and smiling secretively at the results you find.
