I had to leave my kitty alone. I feel like I am abandoning her. Every time I have to leave I am acutely aware that she's getting old and that she is drifting away. The renal failure is making her lose weight. She's actually a nice weight now, but the loss, without me putting her on a diet, is concerning.
I'm down in San Carlos again sitting for the Vizsla people. Boy are they barky and active this time. I'm worried that the girl is going to destroy something and I'll be in trouble.
I'm just sad. I wanted so badly to have a Happy Birthday this year, to make a fuss over myself or more appropriately surround myself with friends who might make a fuss over me. So wistful. I had asked a friend a few months ago if she would plan me a party, but then she had a serious medical emergency and was recovering from surgery so I was not about to bring it up again. My friend Oliver, who works at Pixar, mentioned getting me in to see a screening of, A Wrinkle In Time tomorrow night, but I haven't heard back from him yet.
I have been making multiple posts about a show that is actually happening ON MY BIRTHDAY: My friends Brian Kenney (Brian Kenney Fresno) and Paul Striker (Dr Striker) are playing. No one has responded, My roommate might go with me. But really, my fantasies of being surrounded by friends being entertained by wacky antics and groovy tunes and maybe getting a wee bit tipsy are quickly deflating.
ON A MORE INSPIRATIONAL NOTE!
I thought, I'll pick out 10 and name them here. Hmm. Maybe 20. Oh geez. Look at all the amazing women I could name, easily over a hundred who just rock my world. I narrowed the list down to 30. I wish I had time today to write a bit about each of them. Maybe I will go back and edit this at some point.
Here are just a few amazing women who you should maybe consider following (Not stalking, following) and keep an eye out for. If I have left you off, it's only because this list is so big already! If I had champagne in my hand, I'd toast you!
