Just Creeping...

Sometimes my face does weird things without me knowing.  Usually when I’m nervous or unsure.  Probably a lot during interviews.  A friend asked about it once, and all I could say was, “I don’t know, my face does things.”

 Sometimes I think I’m smiling nicely at someone, and they’re giving me a weird look, and I realize I must be doing it, and they must think something’s wrong with me.

It’s just my face.

(also my super-dry eyes make it look like I’m rolling my eyes a lot, and I’ve had to explain that quite a few times, sometimes to suddenly angry bosses or subordinates or just coworkers of mine, who may or may not believe me)

Today my great wish is for a home of my own.  A little one.  Something I can make my own, with a little yard full of plants and lizards.  Peri will love to chase them.

Who wants to move to Florida with me in a few years?  Share my little house, and have adventures, and either travel with me sometimes or stay home and take care of the plethora of animals we will have?  We can switch off doing that.

I’m serious.  That would be fantastic.

I made a big salad, and a little soup, and some hot chocolate…  I watched some Phineas and Ferb, until something else came on and I couldn’t find anything else good.

This morning I worked on my lab report, but I think I can’t do the last part of it because she didn’t have us collect group data for the second part of the lab.  I still do have to write a paragraph about genetic drift vs. natural selection.  That’s fine.

All right.

I think today will be about getting and making food.  My housemates are going out for family things later, so I think now is the time to go get food, and then I can make it when they’re gone.

I keep thinking I’d like to be social and do things with actual people today, but then I remember it’s Easter, and like 95% of my friends around here are pretty Christian, or at least their families are, and I am alone.

…I could stop by my parents’ house to grab some chocolate-covered strawberries.  My dad makes amazing ones every Easter (sometimes with some prompting).

I hit up the good thrift shops on Friday.

The zoo will probably be crowded.

I mean, I’ll take Peri to the park this morning.  Maybe I’ll take him somewhere else this afternoon.  I don’t know.

I’m kind of thinking of going to the Asian grocery store, though I can’t think of anything I really need.  Tofu, I guess?  I could make that.

Hm.

Waiting for the kitchen again.  AGN’s almost done making spaghetti.  I just want to heat up the end of my soup.

Hi there!  What brings you here?  I mostly just talk about myself.  My job, my class, my few social occasions, my hopes and dreams… lots of animals in there (I like your assortment of pets!).  Sometimes I post pictures.  Also, I like to talk to people!  Any time you want to talk, go for it.  I’d love it.

All of your animals bring me here, tbh. Cool animals for everyone!! Talking would be fun, we’ll have to try that sometime:)

Oh!  I actually only have one dog…  And then I work with dogs, and sometimes with horses, and I’m always thinking about what other animals I could get.  I had a corn snake for a few years, he was fantastic.

…On the other hand, though, I really want to travel more, but the more animals I have, the harder that gets.

Pretty slow day for me.  No baths.  No trial days.  I took the aggressive dogs out for some play time and walks.  We have a MASSIVE brindle Great Dane who just checked in.  She’s sweet, but doesn’t like other dogs.  And the owner taught me how to let people pay, though I don’t have the right password to do that…  She said she’d fix that, but she’s said such things before.  We’ll see.

After work Peri and I went to the pet store, because he’s getting low on food, and I had a coupon.  There were lots of cute dogs there.  <3

The main manager is working on Saturdays now.  I like her, but she does have a tendency to put threatening notes EVERYWHERE…  She’s kind of a control freak.  But I think there’s a better chance that I’ll get out at 12, when I’m supposed to!

I didn’t check to see what the bathing situation is.  We’ll see!

GECKOS ARE ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

…Generally I would agree with you, but this one is all yellow, and my good sense has kicked in…  I think I’m going to pass him up.

Apparently he’s 9 months old, and kind of aggressive with the two females he lives with (which is why he’s being gotten rid of), but gentle and holdable.

I will talk myself into thinking this is a good idea.

…I found another free leopard gecko.  I sent an e-mail.  This one didn’t have a picture or a description (the last one was apparently rare and beautiful), but has a little more information about him.

He doesn’t come with a set-up, but I could piece one together.  I probably have everything I’d need, anyway.

We shall see.

Now I’ve been keeping a close eye on the Craigslist pets page… today someone’s advertising “pigmy” chameleons, not free or with setup, but pretty cheap.  They need much more care than leopard geckos, though.  Misting twice a day, among other things.  And they’re much more fragile.

If I weren’t going off to camp in a little over a month, I might spring for it.  As it is, though, I wouldn’t be able to care for them adequately in the near future.

Oh well.  There will be other lizards in the future!

Got some jeans, a fine pair of shoes, and an adorable stuffed dragon.

I need to repot my two little cacti that I got for the price of one at PetCo a few years back.  They’ve both outgrown their containers (a honey jar and a brandy snifter).  I want them to grow… but not so much that I can’t move them in a few years.

Also I looked at lots of mugs and glassware and board games and such, and wondered what fun things could be done to them to repurpose them.
