Hmm... recap

Currently listening to: Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall
Currently reading: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit

Ok, so I've been away from a reliable internet source for about 2 weeks... and my life has been very hectic. About 2 Thursdays ago, my mom, my dad and I all woke up at about 3:45 am. Fifteen minutes later, we got a phone call that my brother was in the emergency room. Isn't it weird that we were still awake??? I thought so too, it was eerie, to say the least. So I ran upstairs and put on the nearest bit of clothing, which happened to be my work uniform, as I was supposed to be to work in a few hours time. I called work and left the most ridiculous message, I couldn't form sentences properly, that's for sure. It was a jumbled mess. We got to the hospital just after he was taken into surgery, turns out he needed an emergency appendectomy. Scary shit. We sat there with Becky and eventually dad's ex-wife and her new husband. It was weird, I think Jason's entire bloodline was there. Dad amused himself by going into the stairwell and farting so that the noise reverberated off the walls. Anyways, he woke up a few hours later and it was so sad, it made me cry, but I didn't let him see. I called work at some point and talked to my boss, who actually got some words out of my message. I = not in trouble. I stayed with Jason until 8pm, then Becky & I went to get some dinner, then back to their place to sleep. We went back to the hospital the next day for about 5 hours, then Jake was discharged. Awesome. I went home & slept for a day, then went to work the next day. Then I went right over to my bro's to make sure he was okay and I hung out with him for a few hours, then went home to sleep for work the next morning.

Gah. Then a few days later we had a little miracle. My mom found Woody. After two months, she found him in the neighbor's basement, practically starved to death, but he's okay now. That pic is from my cell phone, so it's not top quality or anything, but you can kinda see how skinny he is. Awww. He's a much nicer cat now, he actually sleeps with me in my bed... he craves my attention ;). I love it. I'm so happy we found him, I really thought he was dead. I still can't believe how skinny he is, its ridiculous, he was a fat little cat.

Recently, I've discovered a few things. The TV show Weeds and the musical genius of the Pet Shop Boys. Good stuff. Oh and Ollie & Woody are very surprised by each other's presence. When we last had Woody, we definitely didn't have a dog and now he's like "Whoa bitch, where'd this huge oaf come from and why is it licking my anus?" Gonna go cuddle with the kitty.
