Run for the Border!

I knew this morning getting up that I had no plans for today. And I tried to be content with that. And for the most part I was. First I worked on my blog, because people still seemed to be having problems getting it to load. I upgraded it to give me more space and I hope that fixes it. Please let me know if it doesn't!

Then I apply for a job. I'm pleasantly surprised when I get a response back (for a change) asking what kind of compensation I was looking for. At first I don't know what to do. I never get responses! What do I say?? Am I like, "What up yo! I want this much money, G..." Then I realize I've been watching too much Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Do you know they play that at least three times a day? And I watch it every time! What was I saying? Oh yes... The job. I respond, but sadly we are not within the same range. At least I got a response!

Most of my morning was spent looking forward to lunch. Last night we went to Taco Bell. I'm a Taco Bell slut. I love everything there! I'm not ashamed to admit it. And I'm not even a stoner! I just love their food. I tried their new Smothered Burrito last night, but the sauce was way too spicy for me. But I'd also bought myself a Double Steak Quesadilla for lunch today and I waited all morning for it. I won't let myself have lunch until noon. That's my rule. After my "take a shower every day" rule.  When it was time for me to take out the quesadilla, I found myself talking dirty to it. "Hello, my baby, get in my mouth..." Did I mention I'm alone a lot?

Speaking of TV... Even though I feel like I get out of the house a lot, I still seem to have a schedule of shows I watch every day. There's the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. After that here are two Tyler Perry shows: House of Payne and Meet the Browns. I watch Rules of Engagement (my new favorite). Then I watch Bridezilla. There's usually a blank spot after that where I might watch Friends until Cougar Town comes on at three. I was very excited today when I found a repeat of Grey's Anatomy from the second season. My favorite! I love a little McDreamy in the afternoon. Now if it was McDreamy with a quesadilla, I would never leave the house again! Mmm... A McDreamy Quesadilla. I need to call Taco Bell!

I do have to stress that the television is on while I'm using the computer to look for jobs or work on this blog. I'm not just sitting and watching it. And sometimes I'll put music videos on when my brain gets too empty. Or today, I took a break and picked up 11/22/63. I really need to finish that! It's such a huge book and I'm enjoying it, but it's slow. I know I said that before, but that's how it is. It's like watching a really good movie and even though you are enjoying it and can't wait to see how it ends, you can't help but notice you've been watching for about three hours with no end in sight. Of course I've been reading for weeks. And I'm a fast reader! This is crazy. I have to read the cat sitter book!

I also cook and clean. But not a lot of cleaning. We only live in a couple rooms since our house has been packed up to move in the reno house for a month so I'd only be dusting boxes.

When I need an ego boost from being alone way too long, I'll walk outside and say, "Kitty!" and many cats will come running. I am Queen of the Cat's! I try not to think about how my kingdom would leave me in a heartbeat if I stopped feeding them. In fact, the only reason I have a kingdom is because I'm the Keeper of the Food.

Smoke felt sorry for our cat Sam Kitty tonight, so he let him inside for awhile. Smoke is deathly allergic to cats, which is why all my cats are strictly outdoor kitties. But Sam Kitty was allowed in for awhile. He was the first cat that adopted us. He showed up as a tiny kitten one day and never left. I do have to mention I wasn't the one who fed him first! That was Smoke and JJ. I wasn't always a cat hoarder! Then Sam brought a woman home and she had a litter and that's how it happened.

Anyway, like I said, we tried to let Sam in for awhile, but then one day we got stuck with no electricity during a blizzard and the dander was too much for Smoke. Sam has been outside ever since. But he never leaves and he always hangs around our front door. He's guard kitty!

Wow. I really can ramble when there's nothing going on! I guess I will end this now. Smoke is asleep and left the television on "Through the Wormhole" with Morgan Freeman. Does that sound dirty or is it just me? I'm pretty sure it's me...
