I went to Oaklawn yesterday with my mom. I finally got my insurance refund back from my knee brace, and with the time I've had lately I really needed the excursion. I knew it would exhaust me, and it did, but I was still hella excited.


Here I am feeding an alpaca dried corn.


Peachicks & their mama~ | So graceful? *flump* [He wasn't dead. He was digging a hole in the dirt, and rolling around. Right here he was laying on his side with his legs stuck out.]

Once I've gone through them, more pictures will probably be added to the Facebook album { https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152204790581876.1073741828.579456875&type=1&l=7faff9650e }. I just thought I would post a few pictures & a "look what I did" here too.

Pointform as I'm hella tired but haven't been updating-updating and since this place is 10 years-old now I probably should. The bright yellow makes me feel better so there is that too.

→I sent my Nintendo 3DS away because the part the replaced in the last repair was sharp on the left side like it had leaked from the mould and not sanded down. I have a Circle Pad Pro and where the side is sharp I cannot hook it onto my system. I was told sanding it myself would void my warranty. But now they are saying they need to replace the system, but are refusing to send it to Washington again where they have the same style systems in stock. So I'm stressed, and had to call twice to confirm that I DONOTWANT a standard coloured replacement. If it comes to worst I'll have to buy the same 25TH anniversary edition off eBay. But I'll also buy a Midnight Purple 3DS to use for everyday since if I drop the cash for a new limited edition I won't be using it no matter how proud I am of it.

→I got a haircut. And new sneakers.

→Online stress stuff going on but it doesn't matter if I get into it.

→My laptop bag finally arrived. And then spent the next 2 weeks out on the clothesline because it reeked of plastic so bad that I couldn't handle it. I've since washed it again and it seems to be tolerable now. I used it when I went up the line Wednesday.

I've learned my ex' is rumoured to be getting married. )

→That said I don't care, being reminded of that time reminds me of others things and it's really not helping just how low I've been feeling. But as I said recently; I won't get into that either.

→I had one specialist appointment finally. Ever since I fell on the stairs and hit my ribs/kidney I've had to go to the washroom more frequently & my urine tests have shown blood without infection. Given my small/as developed as a pre-teen kidneys, and the swelling after the fall it was best to get it looked at. I had x-rays & an ultrasound. The x-rays showed what I suspected that I'd cracked my ribs back then instead of just bruising. 3 ribs actually. The ultrasound didn't show anything bad-bad, but the quality wasn't good so we'll see how the frequency reducing pills help & next tests go before seeing about doing another one. Doctor doesn't suspect anything hella bad, in any case.

→I am awaiting an appointment in Halifax about the other test with whatever is going on with the other things I mentioned before (that I also won't get into), so yeah. It probably won't be for a few more months, but some things are stabilised, some things aren't, and that's that for now.

→I bought a PS3 my PSN is "Lady_Noremon".

→I booked 50 skunks & 15 flamingoes [plastic blow mould lawn ornaments] for my biological mother's 65TH birthday. The Balloon Boutique will come around 11:30PM the night before and set them up on the field by her house and then come pick them up the next evening. I also ordered her a set of earrings, but I doubt they will arrive in time now.

→I got some birthday money early so I bought the PC version of "The Wolf Among Us" to get the physical copy later on, an Action Replay so I can bypass the secure server thing on Last Spectre to get the Weekly Puzzles from the fan server, the brown version of this eyeball ring, a Clear keychain, and a case for my Skylanders [I still want Lightcore Giants Prism Break, Giants Drill Sergent, & the Pirate Seas adventure set].

→My birthday is in 15 days now. I will be 26 year-old o_o

→I've been doing a lot of yardwork. Mostly catching-up on "Welcome to Night Vale" [I'm on "A Story About Them"] while cleaning my garden out, adding dirt, desodding, & planting things (mostly what I started in the house).
My garden. on Twitpic Dollarama flamingo too on Twitpic Welcome. on Twitpic

→I put my new flute playing lobster out down by Armand. I was being silly so I told it he might let it play with him, if he wasn't too pissy.

→We've had a lot more robins around here this year than last. Last year I'd see them around when I was out in town or something, but not around our yards.

→I'm at 93.3% Completion in "L.A. Noire" right now. I just have to replay 2 cases to get 5 Stars in them (3 cases since I'm missing a gun & there is a case which has the possible candidates of what one I'm missing), and to collect the damn remaining gold film reels. I've only collected 2 of them. It will probably be my first Platinum Trophy~ I have few Endings & some Trophies in "Heavy Rain", but I can't read the conversation text well on my bedroom television, and I am not in the mood to play it in the kitchen lately. I enjoyed playing Jack more than Cole, but I still ♥ Bekowsky as a partner (and Biggs).

→I had planned on by now having already taken my WHMIS & the resumé/interview courses, but the case-worker I have now is hard to get in contact with, lost one month of my paperwork, and signed me up for the wrong course last time I did manage to contact. It was supposed to give me more stability but it's just making me mostly more stressed. I have gotten my Food Safety & Handling course, & my St. John Ambulance Level A CPR & First Aid now though.

ladynoremon: (Snake 999 -square-)
Well another post, this time I plan to update on my health since I got more results back on Monday. I'm still feeling pointless though. )

Since the late winter/early spring I've felt so tired. Like not even just depressed tired. But I've had very little energy, and weak with hand strength & such. I at first just figured it was because I had given-up. I had a lot of stress & painful removals in the spring (and more recently), and I thought that I was so tired because I didn't feel much point with anything anymore. But I asked my doctor for bloodwork because it could also be my anaemia being a jerk. Well the first bloodwork showed my Iron was fine, but my white blood cell count was high. So another test, and one for a stomach ulcer, and no infection was found but the white blood cells were even higher. Waited 2 weeks and another test with again the count was high. I've been tested for mono', and that's been negative. No urinary track infections or flus. So Dr. Yafai thinks it could be a warning for something to develop with my bone marrow, like leukemia. I've got to go for bloodwork every 3 months now, and if the count reaches 20,000 he'll have my marrow tested. I have now had my blood tested 4 times in the past 3 months and on average it has been around 15,000.

I also had to see Dr. Ruddy (an ear's nose & throat specialist with a thick Scottish accent) because of that lump Dr. Saunders found, & I've also been having spells of a tightness in my throat & trouble swallowing. Usually the things I have trouble with are things neither liquid or solid--like soup or milkshakes. I had an endoscopy done, and I fucking hate them. It gave me the creeps because it felt like a long, thin snake was going down my throat. He didn't use anesthetic so I had a sore throat for days after too. He thought it might be my stomach causing some of it so on Thanksgiving weekend I also had to go do a barium X-ray/follow-through which is my least favourite test so far. I had one back in 2006 & couldn't keep the barium down, and this time I had to drink 2 smaller cups (one while standing, and one through a straw while laying down), and then 2 large ones in the waiting area (also take gas crystals to start, so my stomach was inflated). My body seems to reject me drinking it, like my throat wanting to close-off (it has the texture of paint or school glue, and a sweet, chemically taste to go with the paint+glue). So it took me awhile to drink it all. I was getting very angry at my mother going "come on, come on, get this show on the road!" and having a huffy fit while waiting. We also had to wait a long time to even begin because there was a problem with the equipments' generator. Anyway I got it all done, but felt hella nauseous (and kept tasting the barium in my burps). I had pizza but it didn't help, but I did spend the rest of the day at Mattsles, and mostly played "Killer Is Dead". His mother made meatloaf and that at least got rid of the bad taste.

I had a pounding headache when I got back, but I thought it was just the long day (my appointment was at 7:45AM & I got up around 6:00AM), and playing video-games on a big screen television that's also starting to darken with age. I had a bath & ate some French onion soup, took headache pills, and went right to sleep. But I still felt awful the next day. And by the end of it I was having awful intestinal cramps & bright pastel yellow+goldenrod diarrhea. And I couldn't keep much food down, or feel awful after eating. By Sunday I was also sweating profusely. After dinner on Monday I called 811 (Nova Scotia's HealthLink), and the registered nurse thought I might have had a tear somewhere, and the barium leaked into my system. She recommended I go to outpatients immediately. So after being wishy-washy about it for a couple hours, I got my mother to drive me up. I took my laptop & played DMMd for most of the wait. After 4 hours I finally was saw a Dr. Nick [well last name 'Optoff'(sp?) but he wanted to be called Dr. Nick--not sure if he liked "The Simpsons" or not. He was young & blue-eyed with curly blonde hair though. Dressed in the navy blue emergency uniform]. He diagnosed I was having a bad reaction to the barium. So he got a nurse named Paul to put my on IV. I had Gravol (which fucking burned), something like Advil that started with a 'T', lots of saline, & some dialodid(sp?). 2 of those by needles to my hip & the fatty part of my arm. My mom has in the past left me places, and 2 more hours had passed, so though mostly out of it from the Gravol+opioid I got Paul to go check that my mother was still there. She was pissy until she saw that I was on IV. I had to wait even after the 2ND saline because Paul didn't know if Dr. Nick wanted me to stay & have fluids. But it was fine so I got my mom to carry my stuff because I couldn't walk well & we left. I also got my first Hallowe'en Tim Horton's doughnut of the year on the way back. Actually 2, and I ate one when I got back plus a freezer panini sandwich, & a bag of cheese puffs because my stomach was settled so I was ravenous. I sle0t excellently that night. No dreams, or painful feelings beforehand, just the blackness of sleep. I'm mostly over it now, but I've still got a bit of a bruise on my left arm (couldn't find a good vein in my inner elbow, so had it in my wrist, but fuck it bled a lot & I think the Gravol caused more bruising/irritation), and my digestion isn't back to normal yet. Dr. Nick wondered if something could be up with my spleen to cause all the bruising I've been having & all the bleeding at minor things. Feeling around it didn't seem swollen though. But anyway, I'll probably have to have a different contrast medium for an X-ray in the future though.

You may have missed that I said "my laptop". Well my accountant Mr. Brian Neville gave me his old work laptop. I named it "R-2E-054" after Clear's original serial number. It's a Sony Vaio from 2010-2011 with Windows 7. He told me years ago I could have his old work computer (the company pays every few years), but the model couldn't easily be wiped so he couldn't give it to me. But he said the next one I could have instead. Well I didn't count on it, but about a month ago Debbie (who works the desk, but isn't a secretary. She has the credentials to sell/file/process insurance, but mostly does secretary work) called me early one morning. She said Brian had left a box for me on his desk, and I could pick it up when I was around. I expected his even older work laptop which he keeps bolted to his office desk to be there, but instead it was he more recent one. It has nicks & such from wear, but he even had all the little twist-ties for the cords still in the box. I started having problems with my Shaglehod so I've been glad to have it (first it was forgetting my settings & failing at recognising my harddrives, then a svchost.exe problem with it using 100% CPU). I've mostly just played DMMd & used Twitter via Janetter though. My ACNL post was made with it though.

---

As in my previous post, I got "Animal Crossing: New Leaf" on the 15TH. Now on those fears with it & on other things )

---

As for my own Hallowe'en events, I've been doing a lot this year since I don't know how my health will be next year, et cetera, et cetera. I went to see the Kentville Pumpkin People (and need to go retake pictures of an inflatable handsom cab outside Greenwood after the pictures corrupted when I Moved instead of Copied with that svchost.exe error and the lag turned my external harddrive off). I have pictures, but I can't get enough of a feeling that it matters to upload them. I did upload some to Twitpic though { http://twitpic.com/photos/Lady_Noremon }. I've also been eating a lot of Hallowe'en doughs from Tim Horton's. They have Boston cream ones with sprinkles & a sugar print-out circle on them. I've mostly had the bat & black cat ones. My main plan is tonight though where I'm going to a haunted house at the MacDonald museum in Middleton. I have a costume for Clear from "DRAMATICAL Murder" together, but I didn't like how my old Killua wig looked, so I ordered a proper wig and as of yesterday it still hasn't arrived. It may be in the may mail this morning, but the mail doesn't get sorted until 10:30AM-ish. I really was excited to dress-up as Clear for the haunted house, but if the wig isn't there today I guess I'll go without a costume. If it's not there tomorrow I'll have to use the Killua one. I did wash it at least, so it's ready. Most of the costume is stuff I already had, so it isn't all that accurate, but I still am giddy about dressing-up as him. I couldn't afford a Avon S10 gas mask (and when I saw the cheaper i had to go to Halifax so responsibly didn't buy one then), but I did by a clear plastic umbrella. If I knew some near a military depot type store, I'd ask them to look for me. My mom thought she'd take me to Annapolis Royal on the 31ST (they go all out, and I thought since I'm short/young looking I could sneak a bit of trick-or-treating in too), but she couldn't get the day off work, so I guess I'm handing-out candy instead. I hung ghosts out in the chestnut tree yesterday, and have 2 pumpkins to carve today or tomorrow. I don't know what to carve in them :/ I usually design my own patterns.

EDIT---
Well my ordered wig didn't arrive, so I wore my old Killua one. It didn't look the best, but it was better than nothing. I really enjoyed dressing-up as Clear. I'd actually like to do it more properly someday. The haunted house was kind of stupid & offensive (middle-school students acting like they thought mental patients would). Even the storyteller they had as terrible (I stayed for "The Yellow Ribbon" but then there was one about a man chopping limbs off his family's dog). But there was a lot on the first floor for little kids though, like face paint & macaroni art. I wore a gold opera mask for most of it because there was a bigger crowd than expected, and I didn't want to be recognised (a lot of the bullies I had in school now have kids & I worried they'd be there). I'm glad my mother decided to wait around because I was done with the place before 7:00PM :/ I did like the fake books they had stuck on the museum's gift shop shelves. One was like "How To Easily Train Your Black Cat" which made me think of my Lydie. And they gave me a purple (my favourite colour) glow bracelet at least. Also I seem to have snagged my white boots on something there because I had a hole in them when I got back, so I'm pissed about that too. My first time wearing them (I had to take the price tags off that day ffs), and I got them from Zellers years ago. There was all kinds of stuff in the hallways that brush against people, so I suspect that was what caused it (It looks like a cup hook mark).

Also I forgot that Tuesday I got my 2 pumpkins for jack-o'-lanterns, and while I was waiting for the seller's help (Avery's sells them by the pound up but no more than $5.00), a woman interrupted and snootily pointed at the 2 I had & goes "I want that one, and that one.". I told her I had already picked them out & was just waiting to pay, so she got right huffy & gave me dirty looks the whole time it took to pay/load them into the car. On Thursday afternoon I carved that Sock's (cute cat) pattern into one, but didn't know what to carve into the 2ND. I then remembered the screenshot of Clear when he punches the brainwashed Morpheus Ribstez members (I didn't want to do another gas mask where I carved 999!Zero last year, but I only had a few minutes before trick-or-treater time). So I went to print it off, but my printer decided to be out of ink. So I freehanded it instead by looking at the image on my 3DS for reference. Luckily since I've been making my own patterns for around 10 years, I know well how much space is needed to maintain integrity, et cetera, et cetera (that probably wasn't explained well). I'll try to get myself pumped enough to make a proper pattern of it someday. I haven't even uploaded my design from last year though.

As can be seen in the next entry, I decorated more, including a "Ghostbusters" singing ghost. That video was taken before I hung my window lights up (the ones I won in elementary school for a pumpkin I carved then), or got the Clear pumpkin set-up. I took pictures after though that I'll try to upload. I didn't get many of myself though. I didn't take the brats out for a walk in the morning as I planned to either, but I did put festive collars on them for an hour-ish. Lydia didn't have a good time this year, unlike last year. She acted very scared the whole evening, and I was even worried she'd have some sort of spell. She just wasn't herself until yesterday (Friday, November 1ST), and was tired all morning. I told her she wasn't a very good black Hallowe'en cat, but I was worried about her. Timid Nicki on the other hand was quite perky (and as can be seen in the next entry, still loves pumpkins). Minnow even ran outside while I was setting-up the Clear pumpkin. And surprised me by running to the vack door to come back in after I said to her that it wasn't a good time at all to escape (Hallowe'en).

On my way! on Twitpic Me in front of that hansom cab, on Twitpic Cat on Twitpic I freehanded a carving of Clear. #DMMd on Twitpic

I brought stuff in around 9:00PM, and reheated garlic fingers & got ready to watch the 1922 "Nosferatu". I had been drinking diluted perry most of the evening (after having it with supper), and had the rest with it too so got quite contently tipsy. I also ate cookies I had baked the day before (chocolate chip oatmeal with Reece's Pieces in them too). I love in the 1922 retelling that Jonathan kisses a picture of Nina (Mina) while scared in his room (right after the count menaced him by being weird about blood from a cut Jonathan had). I also love in the novel how he makes notes of trivial things to tell Mina, and being the character that types the diaries up she even keeps the notes in it. I dislike consensual/actively seeking each other Dracula/Mina, preferring my loyal light of all lights Mina (the Van Helsing conversation is where Lorrie's 'lights in the darkness' comes from). So it contents me that in the 1922 silent film they take it so far that she breaks the Nosferatu curse. I love Mina. Sure she can be stupid at times (not getting that of course Lucy could be wandering around in just her nightdress without shoes on), and cares too much about what people think. But she is so clever & level-headed. I know some people dislike her "I want to be an excellent wife & help my husband!", but I don't. Anyway, if you can see "Nosferatu" I recommend it. I bought it on DVD off ebay for about $3.00USD XD And just as I finished Tom really surprised me by inviting me to his New Leaf town for pieces of the Spooky set, so I got comfortable again & did. His villagers kept ambushing me (the Hallowe'en event was on in HoleTown, but I'd set my Nintendo 3DS clock back so Frampton's hadn't begun yet). I ended-up running from them from place to place like from monsters. Limburgh(sp?) & Teddy still changed part of my outfit into the patchwork set though. My lovely cute outfit :( (white lily, purple glasses, beaded top, black formal skirt, black stockings, & black tasselled loafers). I did buy a princess dress & other cute things in HoleTown though. I still haven't done the Hallowe'en event in Frampton though. Too tired Thursday, hopped-up on muscle relaxants Friday, so may get to today. I'm not feeling the game enough to really go out of my way, so :/

I also finally did the Hallowmas & Liberation Of Night events )

Lastly I guess I'll ramble about the findings with Dr. Saunders. The X-rays showed that the bone may not connect right, but is inmgood shape & not worn down/deteriorated as I feared. She also found that my sternocleidomastoid & masseter muscles are hella tight, like she compared the neck ones to guitar or cello strings made of meat. She doesn't know if the tightness is caused my the jaw irritation or the tightness causes the increased irritation. But any way she put me on a soft food diet (which I've mostly been following, except for chewy bread/crust, and notice when I don't follow it. Like I had something sticky earlier in the week and felt how much my muscles hurt when I used my tongue to get it off my teeth), and wrote me a referral for massage therapy to try to loosen the muscles. She also recommended a bite plate to try, but at $1,200+ dollars for something that might not help and isn't covered by my insurance, I'm going to pass on it--I don't want one anyway. If massage therapy doesn't work she has that I should talk with Dr. Saxon about injections for pain & also Botox to help the muscles. I'm also to stay on my Vimovo for inflammation. She doesn't think surgery should be thought of until I've tried a lot of other things, so we'll see. The surgery would be to break & align my jaw how it should be in the left socket. But it'd also be $10,000-ish & hella painful with other risks. At least the instances where I'd lose hearing & be unable to eat have been fewer now. Dr. Saunders also felt something like a cyst in my neck where I've been having trouble, but Dr. Ruddy doesn't think it needs treatment as it is.

I also got my knee brace ordered from Sole's Provider, but haven't gone to pick it up (because I'm waiting for a refund from SunLife so I'll have the funds). I also finally broke-down and got lenses of my new prescription put in my old spare frames. I haven't been able to find eyeglass frames I like, so at least I liks my spares & only wore them a few times. My right eye (my 'good' eye, my left has an astigmatism. I'm also nearsighted) has gotten worse since my last examination & I have had trouble reading books in this dark old house, so now I can see better. I had my last pair of eyeglasses since 2007 (but had examinations after that, though the prescriptions expired due to me not finding frames). I still need to get the nose piece replaced with something like my old pair though, as this is a bit too tall & I see it out of the corner of my eye and think my glasses are dirty/I've got Kleenex snagged in it.

EDIT---
Oh and we had a rain & wind storm Thursday & Friday so I doubt I'll get to go to that corn maze this year because it's probably been flattened/ruined by said storm.

EDIT---
I've uploaded some pictures & linked to the PhotoBucket album in the next post after this.

What do you suppose type of bird made this nest & laid these eggs? They are hidden in one of our fields. They are a bit tinier than a gumball. The bird that flew away when I walked past seemed to be very small & brown.



The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources suggested a robin when I called their/our local office, but I am doubtful.
ladynoremon: (Boy Blue)
Since Photobucket is changing over tomorrow (I hate 'infinite scroll'), I went through & uploaded a bunch of photographs I had been meaning to for ages (some since 2011), or that were uploaded on my Facebook. For some reason scrambling filenames turned itself back on (I had disabled it as soon as it could be), but I only noticed after I had uploaded over 500 pictures :/

ALSO here again are the clothes I am trying to give away, or find a charity to donate to where they will actually be given to people instead of sold. They are all in great condition, most only washed and never worn (I lost weight or lost interest), or still with the tags on them.

Trying the My LJ/Portal posting thing. Shame it lacks User-Picture selection & such, but the submit/such buttons aren't disabled like the new main update page. I Locked my last 2 entries (rambling, almost crying, & upset Voice Posts), so this is a bullet formed attempt here.

→I am about still, not online, feeling very low (Alberta low), pointless, scared, & such. But still floundering about.

→I had to go with mom to have Lotty [Charlotte] put down on Tuesday. )

---

→My Nintendo 3DS got back on February 10TH. The hinge is fixed! I also got 9 StreetPasses (1 person twice). One from Antigua, one from Alaska, one from Colorado, and the rest from Washington. They set it back in time 2 years (January 2011), ran some applications that show as a bunch of "??????????". a DS Demonstration program, opened my Internet Browser, then set the time back.
→I haven't been doing much with it though, but did play until Chapter 7 in "Professor Layton and the Unwound Future" (since I finally watched my Eternal Diva DVD). The Slot Machine Gun was so, so cool.

→I managed to play 'Echo Bazaar' for the Feast of the Exceptional Rose. But fucked-up & am 3 Masquing short for Lettice. So I wasted the money, Nex, & all that time. )

---

→I missed Winterfest this year because being low means I don't deal with dates/time well.
→I bought cheesecake for my mom & I for Saint Valentine's Day. Besides having a card to send Armie (not sent because she sent me a letter, and I want to stick both my response & the card together). I also got a box of pirate valentines, & sent 2 of those out too. And that was how I spent it. I knew my mailbox thing wouldn't get response as I didn't advertise it, and I chose not to reactivate my Twitter for it. Since it was a choice of being alone, or dealing with mass removals & Blocking.

→I did finally manage to get a copy of "The Erciyes Fragments".
→And I had reinstalled Bloodlines last weekend, but haven't played past the tutorial with all the other things happening. I am having to play without the official patch though, since it seems it was the cause of the not saving screenshots & getting stuck in windowed mode from my last time installing before my reformat. There are work-arounds if I encounter the bugs at least. And it's no different than when I played it extensively last time as I had no Internet to download the patch anyway. I'm using the extra stat dots on character creation glitch this time too, as I planned playing this time for the story & a distraction.
→By the way: Beckett is so cool. I wonder if he'll glitch & stay in wolf!form this time too? [Every time I met Beckett in 2007-2009 he stayed as a blue wolf, and thus all my conversations were him talking to Zinnian's crotch]
→Zinnian/Alexander has changed since first creation. Though I guess I and him are older now. I'd still give him higher Auspex than Celerity, and NO Presence though. And he still is a terrible Toreador. And still would rather be Independent. So if I do play Bloodlines again, I'm not going to focus on Seduction so much this time, and I gave him points in Scholarship (which having been a university student, he'd have).
→I should type a character sheet thing using that role-play template for him.

EDIT---
Stuck it all together. I hate the new update/edit page.

I cannot express how grateful I am, and I have no idea how to respond!

Well yesterday [July 14TH, 2012] my mother & I went to Dalhousie Days out/up in West Dalhousie. West Dalhousie is located on the South Mountain, and is very, very rural. Quite a ways into it is also where [livejournal.com profile] krogoth5 used to live, and is a place I've been to so, so many times :/ I haven't been since...2005? but I wanted to go to Dalhousie Days this year to see the reptile show that they were hosting. And besides from gas & a hella long drive the price is free (excluding $5 for optional breakfast). It isn't the event that it used to be, but the now organisers seem to be trying to get it more attention and things for a 'hip-er' crowd (holding a video dance & variety show). I got breakfast which was 2 pancakes, 3 sausages, & some-sort of murky juice (the jug said 'orange', but it tasted kinda like peach, so I figure they mixed them). The pancakes were burnt on the outside, but had a nice fluffy texture. But I only managed to eat one (my mother had the other) & the sausages as I wasn't feeling very well [I did not sleep well the night before--between the heat & a dream about Hal-Con 2011 (I fell asleep to eTalk covering Comic-Con) that put me in a very grumpy mood (I spent a lot of money, trust, & belief for it, and felt unwanted, in the way, & ditched for most of it)]. But after I ate we went around and looked at the tables of things some people were selling, and also bought 4 envelopes of tickets for the Chinese suction. My mom bought me a faux wood peacock ring, and later that day also a pineapple one too ($3 each). There wasn't much I was interested in for the auction, but I did fail to win passes for Oaklawn Farm & Upper Clements Park though. I also StreetPassed with 2 kids that were also attending, and even got to StreetPass with FreakyForms (It seems no-one I StreetPass with has that game, or has nothing set-up to send out with it)! So now Saunder, Lorrie, & Pïäté are Visitors on Planet Ethan C. :}

And then after lunch, Bingo, & the children's games had temporarily been put-away, Maritime Reptile Adventures set-up. They brought 7 reptiles to show [they planned to bring an 8TH (some sort of red snake), but he was filled-up with fluid getting ready to shed his skin, so they didn't think the loooong trip would be very fun for him]; 3 lizards, 3 snakes, & a tortoise~

Bandit: a male Taiwanese beauty
Peaches: a female German giant bearded dragon
Illusion: a male speckled king snake
Stitch: a male water monitor
Tortilla: a female red-footed tortoise
Jigsaw: a male ball python
Bear: a male black & white tegu

I really enjoyed it, and it seemed like at least Mike (a zookeeper) loved what he was doing. I also really loved Peaches and got to hold her on my lap twice. I fond it adorable that she was named such a cute name, and that her favourite food is strawberries. I also learned that they think she is about 6 years-old, but aren't certain as she was found abandoned & wandering around Halifax. I also loved Tortilla, and she took off and trottled around the floor when she was put on it (even running over my foot XD ). I thought being named after a 'little cake' was so cute, and also learned that she goes...well bananas for bananas ("I like bananas. Bananas are good.") XD And Bear was also awesome! He was just like a big cuddly lug, and I kept being reminded of Nicolas (my middle brat) & Bear from ".Hack//Sign" XD


Peaches♥

Also there is 3 short videos I took of the reptile show {HERE}

I also recently played the "Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure" demo' and now I really want the game. The music is lovely, and the main character looks really cool. My favourite mini-game from the demo was 'Looting the Louvre', and my favourite pose is for C-Rank. I took a pretty poor quality video of me playing the demo, and the soundtrack can be found {HERE}. Sadly I've blown my video-game budget until the autumn (excluding pre-ordering "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward"), and I'm trying to save-up some for the Annapolis Valley Exhibition next month.

But last night I bought "Mighty Switch Force!" as it was $5 off until 9:00PM PST today, which means I only paid $3.15CAD for it--though I used my Nintendo eShop balance. It's about a cybernetic cop named Patricia tracking-down escaped prisoners/Space Hooligans. It's all done in Megaman-type sprites (which are 3-D layered if one chooses to use the 3DS' slider), and is really not a very serious game. I'm currently stuck at the end of 'Incident .12' because there is a tricky jump & switch that I can't seem to time right, and just end-up- squishing myself, or landing on spikes. Here is a 'realistic' art of Officer Wagon. And since that page links to the OST on BandCamp {and is no longer really Free :/ [virt (yes THAT virt) & WayForward originally posted it to be free]}, here can hopefully be found a .ZIP of it on MediaFire.

Lastly; I am on the room after the Library in "9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors" (is it officially now "Zero Escape: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors"/"Zero Escape: 999"?). I haven't been playing much, but I have completed the steering wheel puzzle, and the number balls computer puzzle (and I thought how each ball was a different colour was really cool) now. I love Seven & Snake's banter, especially when Seven calls Snake 'kid' XD Like when Seven said something like 'Hurry-up, or we'll be here 'till the cows come home', and Snake replied 'Well then at least we wouldn't have to bring them back ourselves'. Also when Snake corrected Jupei's "Like they say, practice makes prefects!" with "Don't you mean '-Practice makes perfect-'?" and Junpei told him to do the puzzle himself then. ...The puzzle was on a computer screen and involved sorting coloured numbered balls. So yeah; make the blind guy do a quite sight-required puzzle while everyone is in a hurry because the ship is sinking. Well it might work slowly with a screen reader describing things--and Snake probably could find a way to do it anyway. Snake~♥ XD

I've also been rewatching "Gallery Fake" (one of my favourite animes)~ I want a Rhythm Thief & "Gallery Fake" crossover now though! And I've beeing trying to rewatch/finish original "The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi" anime which I started back when I had my wisdom teeth out ^^; (so 2006 or 2007) BURNT VCDS XD

EDIT---

Well MediaFire keeps losing connection while uploading, so I'm going to leave it and hope that it uploads overnight :/

EDIT---
It uploaded! So a .ZIP of the "Mighty Switch Force!" OST is now in my Music MediaFire folder --- > http://www.mediafire.com/?brt7llecvb5ee

Today Minnow Tora Dumphy turned 8 years-old!~♪



Next month on the 20TH will be the anniversary of scooping her up from that barn, but today we had a little 'party' for her. It wasn't as fancy as the one we had for Lydia (which I STILL need to make a post on :/), mostly since I haven't managed to get to a mall or to New Minas, eventhough I expected to before now. But I did make her a little hat (which I forgot to take a picture of her wearing), give her a new toy, and gave all 5 cats a treat of a can of tuna. Then her & Nicki were tied on the nice green lawn for about an hour in the sunshine.


Minnow on the day I brought her here! So tiny and not!orangey. The people had advertised that it was a litter of 'grey tiger kittens', which it was not a litter of. There was one marked like her only a boy, an all grey kitten, and a little girl. The couple's son got on his hands-and-knees to pull the girl out of an empty lawn mower box. As soon as I held her she latched onto my shirt and made a tiny cry. So though he said that there was another kitten around, I stated that I was going to take the one I was holding. She sat on my lap in my shirt & hat (I used to wear button-up shirts & a bucket hat) all the way home. She huddled under a blanket when I sat her on my bed, and hid from Wendy, Belle, & Molly.

I also posted a drabble to commemorate Cassius getting Saunder 2 years ago. It can be read here, but it is Custom FriendS' Locked. I know there isn't much point in keeping Lorel gender things locked now, but it is still ambigious on first glance. If you'd like to read it, I can e-mail it or something though!

We rescued/adopted Nicolas a year ago today [a year at 1:24PM!], and here are two pictures to show how much he has grown!


Taken on July 3rd, 2010


Taken on July 1st, 2011

When we took him in, he was underweight, had a broken tail, was loaded with worms, mites, and fleas, and had/has nasal passage damage caused by feline viral rhinotracheitis. Nickipants also has somewhat knock-knees. BUT he is happy (I hope!), healthy, and has a good home! He is also a little brat :T Minnow, Iceis, and Holly will agree on that fact.

I named him 'Nicolas Fitzgerald' after Nicolas de Lenfent from "The Vampire Chronicles" and Fitz Kreiner from "Doctor Who". I am a very silly person, that did not plan on having another cat just now.

So, Minnow has had an irritated eye this week, but I gave it a few days and have been keeping it clean. I made an appointment Wednesday for today, and I also scheduled it for her yearly check-up [it was due for the 2nd of December, so easier & less expensive to do it all together].

So we got there, and I love that she is so well behaved on her leash, that I don;t need to use a cage. I like that she can see what is going on around her, and such. Yes, I trained my cat to walk on a leash.

Here she is sitting in the chair waiting for Dr. Spicer to see us:

media1.jpeg

Well, she has gained a bunch of weight this past year. I blame some of it on getting Nicolas, and some on her stealing kitten food whenever she gets a chance. Nicki also is able to rip bags open, along with Minnow being able to open drawers/doors, so it is hard to keep her just eating twice a day D:

I have a 13.4lb fur-child :/

So, yeah about her eye. I had suspected that Nicki might of scratched her, and this turned-out to be the case. After cleaning it, and giving her a dye test, Dr. Spicer discovered a tiny scratch on her eye. So I am to put an antibiotic ointment on it every 8 hours for a week-10 days, and bring her in if it gets worse in the meantime. Minnow is not enthused.

Minn, also got her Feline Leukemia booster vaccination, and had herself looked-over. She has excellent clear eyes [besides the scratch/irritation (love her lovely, huge green eyes)], a gorgeously healthy coat, her teeth are good, and heart/temperature/breathing is all fine. So *knock on wood* I won't have to take her back for another year.

After the vets', June & I had to do some errands, so Minn-tiddles went with us. Being an excellent cat, she had free-roam of the back seat/trunk [we have a station-wagon]. She was so well behaved!

Here she is going "What is that?" out the window to a gas pump:

And the following is a few more pictures of our outing:

Waiting in the car, while I was off doing some banking,
Sitting on the back of the seat, while June is paying for gas. She reminds me of a furry [but not -that- kind of furry D:] rooster when she perches on the back seat...and randomly meows,
Back home.

My Mom was VERY AWESOME and surprised me by paying for the check-up/needle beforehand, as an early Christmas present! So I only had to spend $37.17CAD~ Now I can order "Last Window: The Secret of Cape West"/"Hotel Dusk: The Last Window" [I had taken my early Christmas money to pay for Minn] :3
