Healthy Fear and Cats

So I thought Ronald, aka Fat Catstard, wasn’t breathing, turns out he was sleeping. Now he’s super mad at me, but at least now he knows how it feels to be woken in the middle of the night. I fear repercussions tonight, if I don’t show up online tomorrow for work I need my coworkers to do a wellness check. Maybe send animal control, I don’t know, but I do know enough to have some healthy fear.

There we have it, healthy fear, what is a proper amount of healthy fear and what is overboard? Only individuals can answer that, for me healthy fear is knowing what is out there and making preparations to make myself as safe as possible.

There are few things I fear in this world, heights, I do fear that particular thing. Here’s the weird thing, I didn’t fear heights in my youth. The higher the swing went the more I loved it, climbing to the highest point on the monkey bars was my go to at recess. I very literally had no fear, of anything, now I am terrified of heights, I hate elevators, escalators, anything that takes me up. Forget ski lifts, those are the worst, I don’t even know if I could go up in one of those gondolas.

I do have another fear, I fear going completely blind and not being able to read anymore. That is my one besides heights, those are both irrational fears, not healthy ones.

I’m watching Star Trek TOS right now, part of me wishes I had waited to be born so I could travel beyond this planet.

Last night I rewatched the Lois and Clark where they put Dean Cain in the black Superman suit. It was a great episode, for many reasons. But in particular, the black Superman outfit, was the absolute best part of that episode.

No shallowness going on here, at all, if I could insert the eye roll emoji here I would do so. A lot of people like to pretend they are not shallow, but we all are in some way. I fully admit to being attracted to “pretty” men, with Dean Cain being the prettiest of all.

Sometimes I wonder if he has made a deal with God the way I have. He is aging amazingly well.

I have to go now, I am on episode 3 of season 1 of TOS and this one requires a lot of my attention.

People are evolving and being able to control things with their minds. I must pay attention.

Friday, Starbucks and Dean Cain

It has been a strange couple of days, I have had nightmares two nights in a row, the first night was about one of my children. So I do the only thing a mom can do, I text all of them and make them all tell me they are ok. I irritated one as he was asleep, but you know what, I don’t care, I needed to know. So there. They were all fine by the way, but the bad feeling would not go away until I heard from them.

Last night the dream was about me, I was in a house and I had all of the doors locked, however when I went into the garage and got in the car and left someone ran in behind me. I saw him, so I backed out, closed the garage door, went into the back yard and looked in the window. I saw him, the burglar, making himself at home; he was sitting and watching my television! So I yell really loud 911, because that was what I was taught to do in high school. The burglar turns and sees me and gets up and has a machete, and starts to run toward me, I run out of the back gate and jump in the car and before I can drive off I wake up. I was terrified, horrible to wake up without getting away, now I will never know.

So many things happened yesterday, what to address first, well, I’ll go in order, the big meeting. It was a lot of fun, I was not wrong to look forward to it. I do believe they are learning that you praise to success, not berate to mediocrity. The new 2nd level manager and the first level managers gave out kudos and prizes for perfect attendance for the first quarter. The people with the top numbers were recognized as well as new team leads. The only thing that happened that I was sadly disappointed with was a trainer, there was a jeopardy like contest and the contestants were drawn randomly. He was one of them, instead of answering the questions; he was feeding the answers to another contestant. I felt this was inappropriate and unprofessional, this was supposed to be a fun thing, not a cheating thing. He should have answered and let everyone know why he was in a training position. To cheat, sad and wrong.

The rest loved it, we all clapped for our co-workers that won prizes, happy for their recognition, it almost felt like a Mary Kay meeting, I loved it.

The second thing is a not so happy thing, it was the premier of the Dean Cain show, however, I could only stomach about 10 minutes of it, as Dean was not in that segment. I have recorded it and will fast forward to his part, although I don’t even know if I will do that. I can see why I was not considered for this show. The girls are the typical ones you see on the bachelorette or MTV dating shows, more bimbo than nice girl. Of course that seems to be all men want these days, bimbos. Good luck when you procreate with them. Anyway, I don’t think I will be watching this Dean Cain offering as I am sickened by the premise.

On an up note, it is Friday and I am having Starbucks, Venti Passion Tea Lemonade unsweetened of course. So I want everyone to have a fantastic Friday, I hope you enjoy your day and your weekend. Oh I will be volunteering at the Susan G Komen run in Plano tomorrow, I am a race marshal, I can’t wait! Come out and cheer on all of the runners!

Judgmental Dogs

This morning, as I was pouring my coffee, I overfilled the cup, like usual, and as I started to walk away some sloshed out (not an unusual occurrence), Chewie was standing there watching me. I turned to him and said I do believe there is something wrong with your mummy. Yes, I speak to him in a British accent, he is Siberian after all. He looked at me and I know he was thinking, why yes, yes there is. So judgmental for a dog, well, ok, not a dog, he is Chewie after all. I cleaned it up before he could, I do not need a hyper Chewie, well, he is a little hyper this morning, I did give him ham. Don’t judge me. I can see it in all of your eyes, this woman is not the crazy cat lady, she is the crazy dog lady.
I’m going to stop now, because even I can see I am making everyone’s point.
On Saturday nights I like to watch Star Trek, the original series, it comes on at 10pm here, I still love it. I think I like watching it then because it reminds me of home. when I was a teenager, Star Trek would come on at 11pm, on weeknights, well, during the school year I couldn’t watch it during the week. However, in the winter, if the next day was going to be a snow day, my parents would allow me to stay up to watch it. I always feel like that kid again on Saturday nights, staying up, watching Captain Kirk conquer the universe. And yes, I do realize how boring that makes me sound. I don’t care, it is what I do, if that makes me unbearably boring, well, so be it.
I am still enamored with my new coffeemaker, the Cuisinart one, I love hearing the grinding sound as it makes my coffee. The smell of the freshly ground coffee beans is intoxicating to say the least. I wish everyone had this coffeemaker! If you are a coffee lover the way I am, get this appliance! It is still on sale at Macy’s. Speaking of Macy’s, I bought some new dishes online on Friday, they were having their web sale and I have had my eye on these dishes for quite some time, and they were half price! I grabbed them, they should be here next week, I’ll let you know if I love them as much as the coffeemaker.
Well folks that is all I have for now, I need to get around, I have a stack of things that need to go to the GoodWill, and a ton of laundry to finish up. Oh yes, must take the Christmas tree down sometime. Stop looking at me like that!

Hercules

Ok, so, on Sunday I watched three, back to back, Hercules movies, the Kevin Sorbo Hercules movies. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if Ares had been in any one of them. Who does not love Ares? God of War, the late actor Kevin Smith, so amazingly beautiful. I truly believe he was on the same level of amazingness as Dean Cain. If he had lived he would have given Dean a run for his money on my heart. And seriously, the Ares attitude, who did not love that cocky swagger and the large amount of sarcasm dished out? I was so happy when he went on to star in Xena and Young Hercules.
Truly tragic that his life was cut short. He is missed.
I am not feeling well today, I caught a bug or something, it started out as a major headache and has ended with stomach pains and, well, everything that goes with that. I will not go into details as I do not like being gross and disgusting.
I order new nail polish that came yesterday, so excited to do my toes, I have black polish and the silver crackle to go over it, I cannot wait to do my toes! Well that is all I have for now, I know not a lot, but I hope I inspired you to seek out your own Hercules day!

Joss Whedon

I was reading a question posted on tvguide.com regarding Joss Whedon’s internet baby, Dr Horrible’s sing along blog. The person who wrote the question obviously had never seen Mr. Whedon’s work. She was questioning the twist ending, don’t worry I am not going  to spoil it for all of my friends who love his work as much as I. You can see the webisode on itunes now. I, of course, watched it last weekend before the episodes went to itunes. my review in one word…. BRILLIANT. Typical Whedon. Joss is just so freakin brilliant. Ok, so by now you have guessed I was a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and the movie Serenity. I cannot wait for the Dollhouse this fall. I have missed his presence on television. I hope to see some other Buffy Alumni’s in this new venture. The star is Eliza Dushku, Faith from Buffy and Angel. The premise if very promising, I cannot wait to see what he does with it.
