I love my flist!

All of you who've commented on my last message, seeking to cheer me up. All of you who didn't, but tut-tutted at your screens and sent good vibes my way. All of you who've rooted for me, who've had fingers and toes crossed for months on end...All of you who believe in me, even and especially when I don't believe in myself. Your thoughts, comments, vibes, all help to make me see things in perspective, and not to take them and myself too seriously. You ground me. I love you.

This morning couldn't have started off any better. I woke up feeling something I hadn't in months: Leila, licking my eyelids with her rough kitty tongue. It hurt, but it was a good hurt because it was Leila, who for the first time in ages had moved out of the bathroom and jumped up on my bed, purring like mad and not taking any notice of the other two cats already enjoying a cosy snuggle.

So I stayed in way past the time I normally get up to go to work. I called the plumber, to sort out my loo once and for all. I called Jobsworth and told him I had to take up emergency leave. He's just called back to say he's not happy about me taking up emergency leave this week when I already took two days off last week for the same reason. Was it really necessary for me to have a working loo? No, of course not. I'll just shit in a bucket until my retirement, and then I'll be free to dispose of my time and have things done round the house at no inconvenience to him at all! What is he like? I was so looking forward to being shot of him...

Anyway, the sun's shining, it's a lovely September morning, and I've got things to do.

I'm so sorry you didn't get it, my dear. So disappointing. Didn't see your previous post.

That's the spirit! Lovely day here as well and I should be doing stuff too.

*big hugs*

Well...it's been disappointing, but it's not the end of the world. It's been an interesting couple of months, and I've enjoyed getting this far -- if nothing else, it's boosted my confidence and who knows when and where this experience might come in handy?

I was so looking forward to shooting him

Trust me, dear: he's not worth the bullet! ;-)

You still could. Just because she's still there doesn't mean he has to be.

BWAHAHA! You crack me up :D

Put him out of our misery!

Stop it, you two! And I'll stop mentioning him.

I had missed your last post and am so sorry to hear that you didn't get the job. I'm glad, however, that you are in better spirits today. There was a reason and that will become clear in it's own time.

Great news about Leila!

Yes, isn't it fantastic? She's such a sweet little moggie. You should see her, though: the hair's fallen out from those bits of her she wouldn't let me clean, so there's a bald patch on her cheek and both her hind legs are bald too; she looks absurd!

Don't know if just_feen is on your f-list, but she's got the technique on dealing with crappy bosses down cold. I want to borrow her, or send her, like the Don would send Guido and Vinnie.

Yay, Leila! Go, kitty girl, go!
Sep. 14th, 2005 08:48 am (UTC)
She certainy seems to be getting her courage back, and I'm so proud of her!

How's Alaska?
