trying to get a 2nd cat for my apartment and these fucking people are such sick fucking vampires

first they email like 'pay $500' to have a 2nd cat -- FIVE HUNDRED. just...out of thin fucking air, for fucking nothing. fucking fucking fucking monsters

then i email and say 'i already paid $200 for the 1st cat' then they come back and say 'If you are adding a 2nd pet you will need to pay for the 2nd pet deposit, it is a $300 refundable deposit, and bring in vet records.'

which is more reasonable but still. i can't tell if they're clarifying down to 300 or not. and EVEN STILL, THREE HUNDRED for them doing fuck all. absolutely fuck all. it's a cat. were they not going to clean the unit after i leave with the 1 cat??

fucking disgusting fucking fucks.

go outside and find a kitty and take it to the vet. don't ever ask authority about vague stuff. just do it and then blame them for being vague if they make a big deal.

I'll tell you what, though Ė the medialunas at Buenos Aires Cafť just off the corner of Lambton Quay and Grey Street are 100% legitimate and I would be housebound levels of obese within weeks if I lived any closer to them.

Oh true, that place is good. Are medialunas different to empanadas? Iíve had something there Iíve been calling empanadas, they were very good. The biscuits with the caramel are very good, too

Funny you say that, the last couple of times Iíve been in Auckland I liked it - weíve thought about moving up once the kids are finished at high school. Wellington feels so small and empty and windy and cold.

today was the first time we got 6 eggs in a day from our 7 hens. Only one of our 7 month old hens hasn't layed... or at least we think one hasn't. Hard to tell cause several of them lay identical dark brown eggs with dark speckles.

it would be kind of boring. and their coop where the Egg box is pretty dark. But it seems like a fun project... very 1999.

Driving my kid to school this morning and this ad comes on the radio:

Hanging out with relatives and cooking all day may be fun for some, but when Granny's got her own baking to do, she heads on down to the Herb Center.
You can always blame it on the tryptophan!
The Herb Center, making family gatherings tolerable since 20XX.

Ha! Got my attention for sure.

so my talk of the table is that i started a women's mid-career mentoring program (i gotta brag that i was told my application was "one of the most highly-rated"). my mentor is younger, which i don't care about because she has more experience in the policy field. but i feel like i am in such a dirty space mentally that i might just treat her like a therapist...i can be super open and vulnerable in 1-on-1 conversations with anyone. i have to be careful about not letting those floodgates open.

i love that we have so much in common, though. she is also a Mexican woman who strongly identifies as that but doesn't speak Spanish and feels shame for it because of external influences. we have similar upbringings and we're both really personable and open with one another. if anything, i hope i gain a friend out of it.

Is that the Musk-free Twitter? I never had Twitter anyway...or Instagram. I'm stuck on Facebook and missing MySpace.

kind of. Mastodon is a decentralized platform. It was designed without all the bullshit that makes Twitter a toxic hell hole. It's not a company. Each "server" is it's own thing.

I'm on Mastodon.social

If you set up a profile. Do it on a laptop/desktop and don't download the "Mastodon" app on Google play or Apple store. Those apps are garbage.

My GF is working today on the Chicken cam. We already have a cam. And she's going to use a Raspberry Pi to complete the system. Hoping to have it up and running in a week

Then I wonder where all the time went and feel like my life is slipping through my fingers without me just getting done the shit I want to do in life. Also, I'm trading the momentary relief of drawing my attention away from difficult shit I have to do for the much greater anxiety that comes later when it becomes an unavoidable fact that I'm behind on everything.

So, for the month of November, I think I'll just totally block time-wasting sites. I know that what's more likely than me suddenly becoming uber productive is me just switching to other forms of procrastination, but hey, even that seems more healthy than refreshing Reddit for a dopamine hit. Maybe it will cause me to watch an actual movie and then have something to talk with other people about.

>If you're blocking time-wasting sites, then why are you here?

At this point, this board moves so slowly that it's not really possible to waste all day on it, anyway.
Well, this has been an abject failure. The only thing that's changed is that I've been spending more time procrastinating on this website instead of elsewhere.

I think I'm just going to get a new prefrontal cortex instead. Mine's busted.
