So, it's been a while

Hi there, it's been over a year since I've posted, well over a year. I don't really remember how to do this, but I caught up with a bunch of fangirls yesterday and decided it was time.

I shall try to be better at this. We'll see how this goes.

I can't even remember how to code these posts, or even if I have to. So my bad.

Mini - not very important announcement

I've decided to Friends Lock my journal. If you're interested in being added, let me know.

ETA: My fic (of which there is very little) is now and will remain public. I'm uncomfortable friending people who aren't friends with at least one person on my friends list.

This week has been...full of suck

Tuesday, night my cat, Floyd, decided that he was going to get into a fight with another cat through the closed window. He was hissing and growling and making a lot of racket and banging in the blinds. I grabbed him and as you no doubt can guess, he bit. It HURT. I went to the doctor the next day, got antibiotics and antibacterial cream and started the course.

Long story short, on Thursday (ANZAC Day in Australia - and New Zealand - which is a public holiday celebrating our veterans and remembering those who have fallen), instead of going to the RSL for two-up and drinking, I ended up in hospital with IV antibiotics. NOT. FUN.

My hand had swollen up and was red and inflamed, it hurt to move it. So after two nights and three days in hospital, I am now at home with a thoroughly non-apologetic feline a number of holes in my arm (from trying to find a vein for the cannula), more antibiotics and a bandaid over the puncture site. I also have strict instructions to return to hospital if the swelling recurs. This is not a problem for me because 1. I live across the road from the hospital and walked there in the first instance and 2. NOT. STUPID.

So am off work for the next week (probably) and need to keep my hand elevated.

Bloody cat.

It's time

Yep. I've been pondering this for a while now and have come to the conclusion. It's time.

For an X-Files rewatch.

I may be gone for a while...

MCR at The Horden

Had a wonderful night with [personal profile] erilyn. We went to see My Chemical Romance at The Horden. Great show. Gerard is looking particularly hot, Mikey was all over the place with his sparkly bass and singlet. Frank was wearing a jumper! It was boiling hot in there; he looked like a school boy. Ray's hair was a frizzy mess.

They put on a great show and showed care for the crowd. I really like that. There was a tool standing in front of us who was moshing badly and bumping into everyone, until he was spoken to.

Now, it appears as though my cat has decided to throw up on the carpet. Off to do some cleaning.

There's a JB HiFi at my local shopping centre. *sigh*

I now have a 32 inch HD LED and Blu Ray player - bless 12 months interest free. Oh, and a new multi region DVD player. Go me.

Also, I have wine.

Oh man,

I do wish my groceries would be delivered. They're supposed to be delivered by now and I'm very hungry.

I want a poached egg for breakfast. I made sure that I was showered and dressed and everything and now I'm sitting here waiting for my fuds.

ETA: Food has arrived and now, breakfast

And now I'm just that much poorer

After going to the gym this morning and having a wonderful time at yum cha with [livejournal.com profile] erilyn, [livejournal.com profile] hnix and [livejournal.com profile] jocondite, I came home and let Floyd out.

I was pottering around, reading my flist, considering taking a nap, when there was an almighty bang. I didn't think much of it as there's a colourbond fence nearby and often things are banged against it. A few seconds after the bang, Floyd comes bolting in and up the stairs. He'd been frightened and came inside. So I closed the door and thought about that nap (I won't nap with the door open and Floyd outside and he's only allowed outside when I'm at home).

Anyway, I sat back down when Floyd let out this almighty howl. I bolted up the stairs and there he was lying against my bedroom door panting and obviously in distress. I noticed his nose was very pink and when I touched it, blood came away. My god. I had him in my arms, then in the cat carrier and then to the car where I was frantically ringing my vet, who was of course, closed, within about 5 minutes. Thankfully, they had on their answering machine the number for the emergency vets.

Off I go, Floyd next to me. He started to calm down but was periodically sneezing (nothing quite like getting cat snot all over you) and making his displeasure about being in the car known.

Anyway, my boy took a header (probably into the fence) and has a very slight concussion (he's not always the most graceful of felines). I am now $185 poorer. Floyd had thee good drugs which were amusing because he tried to play but couldn't co-ordinate properly.

He's still sneezing (trying to clear the dried blood, I expect) but he's alert, if quiet. He's missing a few little tufts from his head (but the vet doesn't think he was in a fight) but overall, he's okay.

That howl though, it scared the life out of me. I love my baby.
