Three things that made me happy this week

tainry put up a New Chapter of Summer Prompts in Project Resetverse! Ducky goes for a swim, most adorable evar. The moast. :D <3333333333333333

Raccoon girl managed to crack the camera lens on my phone, must have gotten a tooth in there and crunched down in just the wrong place (that's not the happy thing). I use my camera quite a bit for work, so found a phone repair place, and while I was there the very nice young man who was fixing it had a buddy stop by with one of those Funko Pop figures, a character from Game of Thrones. I don't watch it, I said, but I feel like I know it from the social media posts. I don't remember the name of the character, but he told me "She's only like, 11, but she's - pardon the language - badass." And proceeded to be all starry-eyed fanboy about this female character - hee! Also a very competent camera repairer - had to troubleshoot some glass bits that had gotten stuck behind the camera, keeping it from focusing, and even that didn't get it quite to 100% so replaced the whole camera, works good as new, all in less than 20 minutes (and about $60, which seemed reasonable).

Rain! We've been in a moderate drought for most of the fall, but got a good solid inch yesterday :D

It didn't work, unsurprisingly!

Raccoon girl got spayed today, did just fine, but all she wanted to do after I picked her up was paw and rub and nibble at the stitches. I don't think they were hurting her at all - that's just what raccoons do, is pat and nibble at weird little bumpy things. If she were a dog or cat, I'd put her in a cone of shame, but they just don't really work on raccoons - and she could still use her hands even if I did manage to get one to stay on. One end of the incision was starting to look a little raw, so I tried putting her in a pillowcase with arm and head holes, and tapping it in place with masking tape. That lasted all of ten seconds! XD She looked pretty hilarious though, wish I had gotten pictures. Finally managed to distract her from nibbling her stitches with three giant dog biscuits, a pair of stinky hiking shoes, and lots of acorns in a bucket of water, all of which was deemed Very Interesting and Gloriously Messy.

I'd gone into work with the idea that I'd have a sleepy, woozy raccoon to just sort of keep an eye on most of the day - apparently raccoon reaction to anesthesia is EXTREME HYPERACTIVITY. No work was accomplished today, lol - she didn't slow down until about 4pm, took a nap on the drive home, and then she's been full tilt all evening. "Restrict activity for two days" - hrm. Not so much! But at least she's leaving her stitches alone now, although I'll be keeping a close eye on her.

When your brain is swiss cheese...

This morning's weird dream right before I woke up: I had been given a writing assignment where I was supposed to describe everyone's heads as if they were sandwiches. I woke up trying to figure out if my brain were a filling, would it be avocado or a blt or cheese slices...? XD

In other news, whew, busy fall! Local rehabber who used to take most of the wildlife babies in my area has to relocate and can't take any more wildlife, so I've been getting some of the spillover - three little red squirrel babies this weekend, and about a dozen late season opossums? I've lost track, lol. And raccoon-girl is keeping me on my toes - she's reached teenager stage, so [this post interrupted by 15 minute stuffed animal wrestling and chase-the-laser-pointer session to divert Very Wound Up raccoon from attacking my feet]

I haven't been able to brain much, sandwich filling or not, but I'm trying to keep up and even do some Social Things - co-worker's wedding, baby shower for another co-worker (twins! and she's had several miscarriages, so this is doubly happy in many ways), niecelet turned three last week (had to work on the day of her party, but I gave her her presents this weekend: Paw Patrol band-aids and a mesh bug container full of plastic bugs and frogs and snakes and a nice big kid's magnifying glass), and then there's another wedding for niecelet's other aunt in December coming up too. I spent two or three days attempting to find a Nice Thing To Wear to some of these occasions, and failed completely. What do people even wear? Everything I found in the stores was just...weird. I think I'm just gonna do a toga or something for the next wedding -those are fashionable, right?

Ta da!

Catio functional! Toast, my outdoor-lovin' guy, spends about 80% of his time out there, and has mostly figured out the cat door, although if I'm there he meows to be let in even though he's let himself back in several times. One of the unforeseen hazards however, is that he keeps catching things and bringing them inside - nothing like a screeching cicada in the hallway at 2am to get you out of bed fast! Also one big dead mouse and one partially eaten small mouse. Lovely.

I had a ramp system kind of jury-rigged with some boards and bricks, but mom got all excited and ran out and bought me nice sturdy wire closet shelving and some outdoor carpet to put on top of it, and my brother came over and helped attach everything with brackets and things, and now even the not-so-agile Gandalf can make his way around everywhere. He's still scared of the cat door, although I've found him outside on his own a few times now - I always have to hold it open for him to come back in. I held Bones up to the cat door and held it open to see if she'd be interested, and as expected she was utterly horrified and ran away to her nice safe lurking basement. I locked the cat door while we were switching out the ramps, and in one of the photos Toast is pressing his head against it, very frustrated that he can't get it open to go to his happy fun place, lol.

Still needs some work right around where it meets up with the house to make it raccoon-proof, so raccoon baby has only been out for supervised playtime, but she's all over it like a fish to water, so to speak ^^

Here's some pics - I think I've got the permissions set right: Catio/Raccoonio Flickr album

Hermiting and projects!

I have time off! A few days this week, and almost all of next week, although I'm working Sundays and some Sat/Fri programs (Perseid Meteor Shower this Saturday, forecast was looking pretty rainy/cloudy but it keeps getting better every time I checked, so fingers crossed).

This is the point in the year where I am Very Done With People - other than grocery and shopping errands and texting mom, haven't talked to a single soul since Tuesday, ah, bliss! XD The plan is to catch up on as much of the backlog of life maintenance as possible and complete my raccoon enclosure/catio. The catio is something I've been researching and saving up for for several years, finally found what I wanted and got a small windfall in the form of an escrow refund check due to overpayment, w00t! With small raccoon becoming more raccoonlike every day, the need is suddenly more urgent, lol, although she's really doing very well. Being a tiny girl and slightly mobility limited keeps her out of some, but not all, trouble (the similarities between a 4-month raccoon and an almost!three-year-old niecelet are really quite striking!) This lull is pretty much my only chance in the year to have time to assemble and get it all set up before things rev up again for fall. So, the plan:

Herein lies The Plan. Will I accomplish even half? Tune in next week to find out!Collapse )

Cussin' toddlers are gosh darn adorable

Was playing with Playdoh with niecelet the other day, and she was having trouble getting the lid off one of the Playdoh containers.
"Fukkin lid" she says around her pacifier. And then says it several more times, glancing up at me to see if I noticed. I managed to remain boringly non-reactive mainly because I wasn't quite sure that's what she was really saying.
"Havin' trouble getting the lid off?" I say all casual-like.
"Fukkin lid," she tells me again, in her wee little 2.75-year-old voice, managing to get the lid off herself finally. "People say that. That's a dirty word."
"Mmm. Watcha gonna make with that color?" And we moved on. XD

When you have a non-releasable raccoon baby that you're trying to socialize and get her used to humans and handling, and she *loves* to stick her nose up your sleeve and try to chew on your armpit hair.

The Last Knight! I survived!

Went to see it yesterday morning, fully expecting to be completely lost and confused and eye rolling, but that there'd be a few fun tidbits here and there and some robot eye candy, and I was not wrong!

stuff I liked and stuff I didn't, Last Knight spoilersCollapse )
