My friend Calysta Rose is trying to help me and my mom with seeing to the care of our kittens. She has posted the following plea for them via Tumblr - and I am sharing it here. If you have a pet that you love, would you give it a look? Thank you.

Izzie the orange tabby and Duchess the black & white domestic short hair. Izzie is finally old enough to get neutered but his human needs help to afford the low cost clinic next month. If you’d like to donate to help Izzie and/or Duchess get neutered and vaccinated you can do so via paypal. ( via xof1013@gmail.com )

- - -

I would add:


If you are able to help donate to Kitty Fund, I and my mom would greatly appreciate it. Given how dark these last months have been, Izzie and Duchess have been the biggest blessing and the greatest lights. They are my hope when I have little to none. Not being able to provide for their care is heart wrenching. I want to do the best I can for them, but given the length of my unemployment and the devastating effects it’s had on our household … we need the kindness of pet lovers like you to provide for them.

Anything you can give to help provide for their spayed/neutered costs, shots and/or food would be much appreciated. Purrs and hugs. Thank you.



PLEASE - if you could also REBLOG this tumblr entry for us, it would help our chances greatly.

Please pray for us. To say we need it and it would mean the world, is saying too little.

Our family lost our pekingese Lii Lii this morning. She was almost 15 years old, and the love of our lives.

She passed very suddenly. And we're just devastated.

In reference to my freakout - http://xof1013.livejournal.com/160344.html

The good folks at LJ Support have suspended the bot account that was reposting my entries as random texts.

Yey!!!

I was seriously unnerved by that...sigh.

Good to know someone with authority listened. :)

Uhmmm, what the HECK???? I got a google alert today on "aidan gillen" - right? Nothing new in that. But it was text that I had written in 2007 about the Q&A he did. The original text was posted here at my own livejournal which I have had for MANY years.

I click on the link what what do I see? http://ellowtuxedo.livejournal.com/profile

Someone has created a journal on 8-8-09 - which consists of reposts of my journal entries!!! What the... GRRRR.

There's no order to it - random dates, subjects. All the formating has gone out of it so the text runs together.

Why would someone do that? Seriously - it's so damn RANDOM. What what the heck purpose would it serve?

I have to figure out what to do now. This is beyond bizarre.

Any thoughts?

hugs

As if getting made redundant from a job you've held for 11 years isn't bad enough - and let me tell you, it's f'ing baddddddd - there was more news for me today to add to the joy.

My best friend in life - for over seventeen years - has been fired today. From a job he's had for over five years.

I don't think this day could get more crappy, but I'm witholding judgement on that until tomorrow.

Please - think good thoughts our way.

Forgive the venting....

The not so great week ended badly today - 5 1/2 hrs in the ER, badly. I had to take my mom in because she went to war with an ironing board and came out the loser. Not some little board, either - we're talking an extra wide, heavily supported, metal frame board that came crashing down directly on the top of her left foot. A disabled person's foot, to boot.

So in we go, there we wait, and wait, and wait.... Three ambulances, three separate chest pain patients, one almost severed finger and a death later - and we're still sitting there with the dozen others who came in after us.

Course, when we get back to see someone - everyone's walking around at a snails pace. Joking, laughing with each other, standing around drinking coffee, asking where'd the Christmas cookies get put, etc etc - taking their time. If I acted that way at my job (which is customer service oriented to a degree) - I probably wouldn't have one for long.

It more than proved why it took so long to get in, despite the traffic before us. Meantime, my mother and I haven't eaten all day, she hasn't taken her blood pressure medicine, and she's in pain.

X-rays done, verdict - she didn't break her foot, but they said it's a wonder - due to the severe bruising she's suffered. So, she's back home - foot wrapped, and it's gonna be interesting trying to get her to take her pain pills. Sigh...

But see, that's the end of the week....

How'd it start? Puppy surgery. With complications....

My peke Lii Lii was sick over the X-mas weekend. They told us on Friday (after back and forth trips to the Vet, and antibiotics/anti-inflammatory pills) that she had to have bladder stones removed. So we wait three days, she's getting sicker - and I take her in this past Tues for the surgery. During which they found cysts on her ovaries. So in addition to bladder surgery, they did a hysterectomy on her too. Oh, and fixed a hernia on her stomach.

So she's at home, and not eating. I've been trying to coax her into trying things like peanut butter and baby food chicken, etc. Things she doesn't have to chew. But she's not happy with it. Or with me. See, I'm the one who took her away, handed her over, left her and is now on pill taking and food serving patrol. All things that aren't putting me in her good books.

So the week started with surgery and ended in the ER....

Shit....

I'm not feeling so chipper. To say the least. My primary current frustration is my continuing failure to finish any story idea I start. Doesn't matter that I've tried to start three different stories in three different fandoms. Doesn't matter that I want to be doing it. The moment I try, it's like dragging myself through tons of wet sand. Inch, stop, inch, stop.

It's so incredibly shitty feeling this way. It's months now since I've be able to write, start to finish. And even then it was just little one-offs - me trying to find my qaf voice again. I don't think I've done anything of true depth, plot-wise, in over a year. So it's not a matter of "step back, take a break" as some have suggested.

And all this sounds pathetic. I know it. I should just shut the fuck up. But I miss it. I feel lonely without it. Like I'm not... Like xof isn't xof, anymore. Doesn't matter that I've tried to shift my lagging energies over to the vids. They're my way of trying, alway trying to put something out there. To find something fandom-wise that I can feel happy that I finished.

Shit... anyway. I'm sorry for those of you who've asked me for fic. It's not happening. Though I so wish that it was.

Sorry - xof
