Last night I dreamed that we found a baby polar bear and it was adorable and soft and we fed it fish that were preserved in like ice cubes and instead of it eating Cupcake, or her just hating it, after the feeding she walked up and they licked each other and curled up like friends. I was sort of sad to wake up to not having a baby polar bear as a pet. At least Cupcake has deigned it acceptable to nap on the other side of the couch while I sit her on my laptop.

Tomorrow, I have to drive about three hours to Fresno, sans Jeremy who has to work, to go to a Chanukkah/Uncle's Birthday party at the JAP (Jewish American Princess, for those of you not familiar with the term)cousins' that night. Then they next night we are going to a catered Chanukkah party (also in the Fresno area) at my maternal grandmother's wealthy friend (who wants my brother to date her princess daughter)'s house. Then I get to be home for a day or so, before driving another three hours out to Santa Rosa on Christmas Eve to spend it with my paternal grandmother (trying to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix for exchanging presents etc somewhere along the way), go to brunch the next morning at my paternal grandfather's (thankfully only like 10 minutes away) and then drive back to Sacramento to my mother's so that her boyfriend can feed us prime rib. Long live the holidays and intermarrying. Hopefully yours are less hectic than mine.

However, apparently we are the #10 ranked guild for our server and faction in WoW... which would be impressive if it was a higher pop server. Still less fail than expected. So yay look at me!

Because the cat was being a total bitch and refused to use her medicinal feline abilities of soft warm purring cuddle to help me when I was feeling terrible today, I received roses today from my boyfriend. That will show her!

So this weekend [livejournal.com profile] countouttheday and her boy came out to California, because he's gotten into a top grad program out here and they are probably going to be moving from New York to here in the fall. She sent me an email on Wednesday night about this fact and maybe making plans for Saturday. I was thrilled. Jeremy, unfortunately had agreed to close Saturday night for someone (usually it is his day off). On Friday he managed to get out of it and we met up with them in the city at about 1... and walked around for about 4 hours. My brother ended up being in the city as well but our timing was off. Which didn't matter much since we all hit it off really well (she and I had hung out in New York about a year and a half ago but the boys hadn't met anyone other than their SO). We headed back to Palo Alto where they were staying, Jeremy and I booked ourselves a room in the same hotel and we had delicious food and alcohol. It was about 3AM by the time we went to bed and I woke up with a little bit of a hangover and slightly more suffering from lack of sleep (I always wake up ridiculously early in the morning if I drink the night before). We almost made them late for their plane, because I mixed up my freeways a little, but it worked out alright in the end as they made it in the nick of time, only to have their plane delayed anyway. In conclusion I am so happy that they are moving out here. We both are.

After dropping them off, we hung out for a few hours in the city with Jeremy's best friend and his fiance, at their place. I feel I was a poor guest (mostly hiding my face in Jeremy's shoulder) but they had also had a late night. We finally left there for my mother's boyfriend's mother's wake at the House of Prime Rib at about 3:20 and found parking and arrived just about exactly on time. Hilariously, some people (including my sister) showed up who had said they weren't going to, so Jeremy and I got seated separately. Basically we had a really nice dinner, with great service, on Dan. We could hear each other and didn't have to deal with awkwardness. It was awesome. I seriously recommend the place if you are looking for a nice place and eat red meat (although apparently they do have seafood and chicken options if you ask). Slightly less awesome is the fact that my left ankle (which is weak since I have sprained it a few times over the years) is all swollen from so much walking and the other is also a little stiff. I've been rubbing stuff on it and it seems to be helping, but I'm definitely going to be avoiding unnecessary walking for a little bit while it recovers.

On the cat front, Cupcake seems not to be too bothered by the newcomer, only occasionally hissing/growling at her until she retreats a little. The radius she insists upon seems to be shrinking though. I have hopes that they can maybe work it out. In which case we need a name for the darling. Kyle has suggested both Pontoof(?) and Yoshimi. The first Tatiana has plans for, and the second has long been [livejournal.com profile] sainfoin_fields' theoretical cat. I jokingly said we should name her Salem (after the cat in Sabrina the Teenage witch) but no one laughed. Jeremy suggested Anastasia, which I like well enough but I am not sold. Perhaps we could call her Arya, but she seems too mellow for the most part. She is long and black.

We watched BSG 4x1 when it aired on Friday[spoilers ahead] )

Jeremy and I wanted to go down to Southern California next week, and he got the time off approved, but I couldn't (am irritated because I mainly feel like my bosses are just being bitchy). So maybe the week before my birthday. I really need some time off and we really need to visit family.

Also I went to the dentist today.

Last weekend, after almost a decade, we simple humans finally figured out the cat's name (which she has been trying to tell us this whole time). After countless attempts we finally called her Cupcake on a whim. She responded to it; she continues to respond. She seems very pleased that we have finally caught on. Oh Cupcake!

[Poll #1074265]

It is Friday at last (less than 5 hours until the weekend) and I would like to accomplish the following things this weekend:
1) Finding and purchasing leather pants for my Faith Halloween Costume.
2) Getting caught up on the laundry at last.
3) Doing enough research for my writing sample to determine if my author based arguments are feasible.
4) Actually starting to write for my writing sample.

My mother suggested having dinner together tonight and I am trying to call her and tell her that she is welcome to come over but she is not answering either of her cell phones or her work number.

I am trying to write Wes/Faith fic but it is not working. Perhaps, after I acquire those pants, I will make J role play with me for inspiration.

Last night, we were walking back from NBC comedy watching at [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix and [livejournal.com profile] actoplasm's. The cat was waiting on the ledge by the door because she had refused to come in when we were leaving. Upon seeing us she chirped and jumped down in front of the door. But then the much larger white cat from upstairs (who had obviously been waiting for her to come down, fatass) attacked her. It's owner opened his door (probably because I was screaming at the cats) and the attacker took off but he didn't say anything (like maybe: sorry my cat was stalking yours). My poor baby ran inside and J pet her and fed her and gave her treats until her tail stopped being puffed up, but now I fear I have to worry about letting her outside when we are planning on going anywhere because it is clearly not safe for my compact cat in the wilds of our apartment complex.

Also hello and welcome to new friends: [livejournal.com profile] vonnie_k, [livejournal.com profile] etrangere and [livejournal.com profile] unanon.

Well I'm back home at last and I might make a post about the second half of my trip at some point but there is job applying to do so I will just say the most important things:

1)Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] adelynne and her boy for being wonderful hosts when I was in Boston. I had so much fun and felt so welcomed and comfortable. Seriously on about Thursday my mom asked me if it was getting awkward because staying with people usually does at that point and I honestly could answer that it hadn't. I greatly enjoyed the apple picking, and indian food, and playing settlers, and watching VM with your Carnegie Mellon posse in Boston, and starting to write meta, and discovering that we are cylons.

2)Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] starrysummer for hanging out with me 3 out of my 4 days in New York. It was so awesome getting to hang out with you and plotting to get [livejournal.com profile] sionnain to read SoIaF so she'll write Littlefinger/Sansa and going out and being bought lots and lots of drinks by random men in bars and shoe shopping and amazing crossover bunnies and watching VM together and the going on thehunt for the perfect gold eyeshadow and everything.

3)Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix for picking me up from the airport upon my return, venturing to Ross with me, tivoing all my crack for me while I was gone, going bar hopping with me Friday night, spending the rest of the weekend tv watching with me, and overall just being awesome.

4)And last but not least, yay for [livejournal.com profile] hobviously visting this weekend and sharing her flying bison dvds and eating fancy french cheese and yummy bread and pasta salad with us being the most lovable of drunks.

Also. I missed my cat A LOT. *hearts;
lodessa: lol (veronica discovery)
1)So many of the professors/vets here have yummy accents... mmmm I love to just listen to them talk when they come in to get things from my coworkers. I wish I had a good accent. Damn being Californian!

2) At my house we have gnomes. The gnomes (for those of you who haven't watched the beginning of Season 4 of Buffy) move things. Our worst gnomes tend to be the deodorant and tampon gnomes. So Saturday night my sister and I were doing laundry and as we were talking out we heard a crash and then the cat appeared. We weren't sure what she knocked down until we came back and found that it was the mirror. For some reason this lead Tatiana, my sister, to suggest that the cat was the Queen of the Gnomes. I thought this was weird until we got annoyed and trapped the cat under a laundry basket to keep her from messing everything up for a while. While she was trapped, we found 5 things of deodorant and various other missing items that the gnomes had previously taken. We reasoned that the gnomes were trying to ransom their queen by giving us things back so I became convinced that she was indeed the Gnome Queen. Since she is clearly not a gnome, we have decided that she must have been chosen for being cute, just like in Labyrinth Jareth was obviously chosen for being awesome and David Bowie to be the Goblin King, even though he is not a Goblin. This lead to crack!fic images of Jareth and the cat hanging out and then Tatiana suggested that maybe the cat was really David Bowie... oh man. Fandom has melted my brain.

3)I was going to apologize about all the polls except I am really not sorry.
