I used to drive a Saturn wagon, which was the biggest piece-of-sh*t ever made. Sweet Jeezus, that car would break down if you LOOKED at it funny.
So when it finally broke down one more time than I was willing to repair, I traded it in. On a Kia Rondo. Which they stopped making shortly after I bought mine. *cue ominous music*.
And it HAD been a pretty good car, cheap-car-wise, until a couple of months ago when it started spewing antifreeze everywhere, and it cost me FOUR HUNDRED BUCKS to replace the hoses.
Saturday? It started leaking antifreeze AGAIN.
And yes, I know that antifreeze is poisonous and yes, steps have been taken to keep the cats from getting into the leaking antifreeze.
And this afternoon the car goes BACK to the damn garage and holy Mary mother of F*CK I am going to be pissed if I have to buy a new flipping RADIATOR and God only knows what THAT will cost when the damn HOSES cost four hundred bucks and
and I keep thinking of those people in Jersey. Who have no heat and no food and they're on the news BEGGING for someone to help them.
I'll shut up about the damn car now.
In other news, I was at the adoption center yesterday. And it was crazy, crazy busy. Thankfully, there was another volunteer there, so we were able to tag-team the job. There is one cat there who is ABSOLUTELY not socialized enough yet to be there and should really be in a foster home, but all of the foster homes are full right now. God, I feel bad for her - I can't even comfort her because if I put a hand near her cage she starts to hiss and spit and swipe.
And in OTHER sad cat news, on Saturday I was out at the FC's house, where there were nine billion teeny-tiny kittens running around, and I got to cuddle with ALL of them. Including one very friendly teeny-tiny-weeny orange bit of fluff, who unexpectedly passed away the next day.
It ain't EASY, this rescue business.
And Wanders? The foster? She moved to another foster home. After five weeks at my place, she was still making no progress in learning to tolerate (or at least ignore) my cats. And she was obviously unhappy, and I was getting stressed, and poor Ponyboy (the brunt of her ire) STOPPED EATING, and that was when I called the FC and said that Wanders needed to move on. It's really the best for all of us. At least that's what I keep telling myself. And no, I am NOT taking the adoption center hisser and spitter in. The LAST thing my boys need right now is another angry foster cat.
And let's see, I went to a rummage sale and ran nine billion errands and did not rake the lawn because holy SH*T it was dark out at four o'clock yesterday and why does that surprise me? It happens every year.
At least it's light out when I get up now. Ha! Always look on the bright side, that's me.
