trophy of awesome-ness, sophie, bad action

Monday Apr 6, 2009

There are two cat’s currently in my house and I’m slightly concerned for the welfare of them and my apartment when I get home. I’m looking after my sisters cat Sophie and she is not happy about being at my house and has been hiding in my wardrobe hissing and growling at Poppy and me.

 

She took a swipe at me yesterday, she alternates between meowing at me for pats and growling, often in the same breath. Apparently she was not happy with my patting technique and switched from being smooch to evil.

 

Poppy also ate Sophie’s food yesterday, Sophie eats the ridiculously expensive little food portions while Poppy normally eats the, you know, normal tinned act food. Apparently she was quite partial to the salmon pate of Sophie’s and is now refusing to eat her usual food so I got to buy more food for her at double the cost.

 

It is going to be a long week.

 

The action fun park on Saturday? Terrible. It was more like a family BBQ that Beth and I had gatecrashed.

 

I went on the toboggan thing and did not enjoy it. It was too fast and I wanted to throw up and wet myself at the same time. I have confirmed that I am in no way a thrill seeker, adrenaline junkie or any other psychotic person who enjoys coming close to dying to feel alive. In fact the 7 year old on the toboggan thing behind me quickly caught up to me and yelled at me to go faster. I politely told him to go fuck himself. Literally, stupid kid.

 

As I also accidentally smacked a toddler in the head with my shopping basket on Friday night at the supermarket and made him cry (hysterically) this means I yelled at or made cry 2 kids last week.

 

Standard week really.

 

After driving for 4 hours to attend the most awkward fun park day EVA I spent the rest of the weekend hanging out and cleaning (and dear God when will I find a cleaner so I do not have to spend another Sunday morning scrubbing my toilet!?!?!)

 

So yeah, tonight is trying to sweet talk a (normally) lovely cat who is currently channelling Linda Blair in my bedroom. Maybe they’ll be best friends by the time I get home? Maybe? No? Oh.

Our IT department holds a Wii competition, the winner gets a trophy. I stole the trophy from the dude who won it this time and claimed it as my own, apparently because it is now the Trophy of Awesome-Ness and obviously the winner is me.

 

I really need to either get a life or a serious make out session.

I love you for making kids cry. Also, when did it become ok for a 7yo to yell at a grown up? I would have sooner set myself on fire than argue with an adult when I was a small person. Kids these days….

Good luck getting Poppy to eat cheap food again, our cats have become such picky eater that we often need to make a special trip to a particular supermarket location to buy their preferred brand/flavour because our normal store seems to stock 3 tiny cans of it a month. If a new, more expensive brand is released I have no doubted they’d start to prefer that, simply so they can cost us the maximum amount of money. Gotta love pussycats 🙂

Beating up and abusing two kids per week is standard? That sounds like a challenge to me…

Jen – I’m giving the shouty kid a free pass on the yelling, I think he was just supremely excited. And after the swearing I did not hear a peep out of him for the rest of the ride.

Damn kids get offa my lawn!

Mark – Then it looks like you’re going to have to try a little harder…..

Mr. Guinnss:

Kids in restaurants creating a scene are my “tipping point”, usually a nice remark to the waiter/waitress of the table resolves the issue. I generally ask them to convey a request to the parents for me as to whether thier choice for the child would be “broiled” or “fried”.
If you can;t control your kids Sell them, and get a dog. (Note I said Dog as we all know a cat can not be controlled. 🙂 Speaking of which Poppy has just been “hooked” on the Cocaine of catfood. Better start looking for a second job to support her habit! 🙂

The quality of cat food that Poppy is now eating is insane, tonight she had salmon mousse pate and yesterday its shredded chicken breast with baby prawns.

That cat is eating better than I am.

And yeah, usually I don’t mind the kids but man, when they’re noisy or rude it drives me nuts. I’ve heard that people become more sympathetic to noisy children though once they have their own. Your dining policy proves otherwise, I much prefer your way 🙂
