Sadness

It is with a heavy heart that I post this.  My cat Sammy has passed away at the age of 15 1/2.  He had been losing weight the last couple of months and seemed to have more labored breathing, which was why I made an appointment to see the vet.  The vet wasn't so much concerned with the weight loss, but the heavy breathing was an issue.  They took some x-rays and found tumors in the lung area.  The vet said that there was nothing she could do and that he was only going to get worse and probably didn't have much time left.  She recommended putting him to sleep.  This was devastating news...especially since I only put my dog down 6 months ago.  Its been a rough year losing both of my pets in less than a year.

R.I.P. Little boy!
Sammy - March 1996-September 2011

Feeling Buggy!



Last night I had trouble sleeping...because there is a GIANT FLYING COCKROACH in my bedroom!  I first spotted the bug in my bathroom, during hurricane Irene, but as soon as I was able to get something to smack it with, it disappeared and I hadn't seen it since....until last night.  I saw this thing crawling on my wall, then it glided across the room and landed on my bookcase.  Needless to say, I was pretty freaked about this thing flying around my bedroom and let out a scream (thankfully my upstairs neighbor was out).  I armed myself with a broom and waited, and waited.  It felt like I was in a horror movie, I was nervously looking around for any sudden movements and jerking my head around at any small noise, armed with my trusty broom. Finally around 3:00 am the bug made one final appearance before it disappeared.  I may have smacked it with the broom, but there was no giant cockroach carcass to be found...Ok perhaps I'm exaggerating a bit about the size, but it was definitely an inch long.  I couldn't sleep and I'm not sure what time I ended up drifting off, but it was probably close to 5:00 am.  I'm at my boyfriend's house right now, and I'm afraid to go back home!  I'm not even sure where this thing came from!  When researching, I read that they are more prevalent down south...so I'm not sure what this thing is doing in my bedroom!  I couldn't even bring myself to post a picture of a real flying cockroach since I'm still feeling a big buggy.  I think that writing about it is making me think about it too much, so I'm ending this post now!

Missoni for Target a Miss??

Yesterday was the big day...Missoni was going to be available at Target! Who knew the deluge this would create on the website and stores! From what I've read, the website was down for most of the day and things were selling out very quickly. As of this morning, I was easily able to access the website, but about 90% of the items were sold out. At the stores, it was even worse...people were filling up shopping carts, fights were breaking out, things were grabbed out of other people's hands, people were knocked over so someone could grab something...total mayhem! It sounded worse than Black Friday! What I don't get is what is the big deal?!! I checked out the Missoni stuff online and wasn't super impressed...except for maybe the throw (pictured below) but other than that, I was underwhelmed.



Sadly, most of those crazed shoppers purchased stuff so that they can re-sell them on ebay at a huge increase.....you may as well buy the real deal as opposed to the Target version if you want to pay those prices! As one Twitter user commented:  "Should have called it Missoni for Target for Ebay" I will avoid the ebay auctions for the overpriced Missoni for Target items.  To be honest, I get more excited when Ikea is having a sale!

More Dog Less cat?

Freakin' hilarious video!  Although I disagree....cats can get pretty rowdy and mean when they have to.

Google Tribute to Freddie Mercury's 65th Birthday!



Saw this on Google today and it made me smile!  Just go to the main Google page and click on the Google image and a cute little cartoon tribute will play.  He was one of my favorite singers and I'm glad that I got the chance to see him perform before his death. If you haven't gone to Google.com yet, do it now! Rock on!
