Just stuff

I finally got the Feliway for Leila last night -- now let's hope we'll see some results soon. Poor kitty has taken to hiding in the litterbox; something the other cats aren't happy about.

Jobsworth has reverted to being an arse again, and this Whitsun weekend I'm taking the opportunity (if I can) to send off some applications -- I've already short-listed a few companies for possible future employment. Funnily enough, the other day, I came across an opening for a spy (they gave it the more innocuous sounding job title of 'operational agent', but the description made it clear that what they were looking for was someone to take on surveillance duty and follow people around), but after a half a minute's daydream, in which I pictured myself as something of an international woman of mystery, I decided it's not for me. I could never manage being my usual glamorous self ;-) yet at the same time, blend into the background enough so as not to tip off my quarry...

And I'm torn; I'm agonising over which item to purchase next week -- the beautiful green shoes I've coveted since last Wednesday, when I first clapped eyes on them and fell in love instantly (4 inch high-heeled ankle-strapped sandals, wooden sole and heel, uppers of green leather with hard pink stitching, silver studs and a pink metallic finish), or the latest hp Photosmart digital camera which I can get through work at a 40% discount on Thursday...although I would have to travel to the Utrecht office to collect it in person and fill out a ream of paperwork while I'm at it. After all the hassle I had to go through getting my pictures earlier this week: the phone calls, the visits, the threats, I do want to get myself a digital camera -- but the shoes are just to die for. Of course, I cannot wear them yet -bloody ankle!-, but...

Wow. That's a tough one. The practical side of me says to go with the camera. But the rest of me, including the part with the shoe fetish that has to live vicariously through you at this point, is screaming SHOES! Obviously, I've been a great deal of help in the decision making process.

Mine, too...

But the rest of me (..) is screaming SHOES!

And that's my problem, in a nutshell. ;-)

God, those shoes -- I really do want them...

boots+spying a no no. It's clear what you must do.

Buy the boots.


Then the camera to show them off, won't have 40 percent for long if those apps are a go.

Sage advice. It's only money, after all. I really shouldn't let the fact that I don't have it hold me back, should I?

And yes, I don't think a career as a spy and pinkish green footwear go together very well...;-)

It's never stopped me. Electricity bill? New external hard drive?

the hard drive always wins.

oh I think I missed kitty diagnosis and treatment suggestion .. I'd better rewind! Hope she feels better soon.

Definitely shoes!

:)

The next time you need a camera you can trawl for an awesome online deal anyway - being able to choose from all makes and models to get exactly what you want and get it delivered to your door too!

Good luck with the job hunting .. Spy?!! lol.

Hee. I never of that! Shoes it is, then (makes me much happier, anyway)!

The Feliway's been plugged in for 48 hours now, but none of the cats are behaving any better now, and Leila's still in hiding somewhere...it seems to have been another costly mistake.

Good luck with the job hunting

Thanks! Hope I'll have your luck, and end up somewhere where there's cats and bluebells ;-)
