There Was A Weekend

I bought new shoes. Finally. In case you're not aware of the condition of the old ones – they had almost no sole left. I think they're close to a year old now, and the unneven wear has probably screwed up the way I walk even more. But now I have new ones, and this time I'll replace them when they start to wear out, rather than when I start to wear out.

I also got a really nifty Mountain Dew t-shirt. A t-shirt whose tag says to line dry it. It's in the dryer now, probably mutating into something horrible. I can't wear it though, because it makes me look incredibly scrawny. But it's good I guess, because now I have two motivations for becoming not-so-scrawny (the other one involves a lobster – if you have to ask, don't.)

Last night the cat was scratching at my door. I don't know why, because he's afraid to come in here anyway – won't come in when I call him, stopped dead at the doorway when chasing a laser pointer – he doesn't seem to be big on change, but he seems to like me just fine, so I dunno. Anyway, cat scratching, and it wakes me up.. if you've never seen me when I wake up, it's pretty funny. My thinking is quite humorous for a few minutes. The scratching noise must have brought up memories of when I was a kid and there was a raccoon in the attic, because I was TERRIFIED that there was a raccoon trying to get in my room. Just a weird fear for minutes, until the raccoon meowed, and then I was like "grar.. oscar, go to sleeps!"

And this is why no one reads my blog. 😛

    So, the Dew shirt shrunk. Quite a bit.
    I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    bummer about the dew shirt shrinking 🙁

    and shame on oscar for interrupting your sleep! my kitty cats do that to me all of the time. i never close my door but they're always running over me or jumping on me whenever i'm trying to sleep. or chava will bang on my closet door or golde will claw the screen in the window. can't those cats just let us sleep?! lol

    I think a pet raccoon would be fun. Like Rascal. Until it got older, then they're just not a good animal to have around.

    Other than that, they (along with most other wild animals) scare me a bit. Even though I have been known to follow raccoons (it happened once) across campus in the dark.
