Credit Card / Fleas / Job

Credit Card?
Today I got my first "No Annual Fee" credit card offer since my bankruptcy. I think I should maybe have one for emergencies, but I'm afraid I might use it. I believe I have a lot more self control than I did when I got my first card. In fact I'm actually saving up money to get a couple of things, and I'm even working on building an emergency fund. That would be better than a credit line because I could get interest when I'm not using it, instead of paying buckets of money if I do. Both is an option.

My Cat Has Fleas
I noticed a speck of something on Spot's face a couple weeks ago, so I picked it off. Imagine my surprise when the speck jumped off of my finger. So we've gotten flea collars for all the cats, minus Butch. Oh, I haven't mentioned, but Butch is pregnant again having escaped during her recovery time before we could spay her. Kittens are expected within a couple of weeks. I hope things go better this time. Spike and Floyd have never worn a collar of any kind before, so they were trying to extricate themselves from theirs. Floyd tried backing out of the collar, but it followed him, being attached to his neck. Then he tried to fake it out by crouching, then springing about four feet into the air. He's doing better now.

Job Yeas
I really do like working at the hospital. It's not really stressful, and I know the whole thing inside and out for the most part. I wish they'd make me a perm, instead of just a temp, but that's not likely. It's no biggy, but benefits would be nice. I ended up getting Launchcast Plus from Yahoo! because I'm listening to music from the computer and I used up my free plays for the month (plus I was getting tired of the "Pimp My Computer" commercial.)

You did the bankruptcy thing too?

The thing that absolutely kills me is when I get envelopes from the CC company I defaulted on. The ones pleading with me to apply. *facepalms*

I haven't gotten that yet. The thing is they want to get you back because they know you can't file again for 7 years. That's their trap.

Heh. I had forgotten about that. You just might have a point.

On the other hand, I don't need a credit card. Because I am going to go live in a small cave in the desert, and train mice to carry messages to my friends on scraps of parchment rolled up and tied to their tail.

Stupid world. >_

Maybe you can mad-science the mice to have little pouches that can hold the messages. Or maybe engineer them to mimic exactly what you say and only to a specific person, like furry little tape recorders.

"And Squeaky, tell Willard that I'd like him MORE as a friend if he bathed instead of just airing himself in the sun."

*giggles* Don't mind me, I'm in the middle of being a TOTAL geek.

I just made an animated icon that will only make sense to the extremely limited subset of people who follow webls cartoons who have also read (and remember) Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying".

I think that gets me a box on the "I have done other things that should earn me a point on this quiz" geek test all by itself.
