9:44a been listening to pseudopod’s back catalog. it’s pretty damned solid.

but i’ve been super busy at work. i guess i’m still trying to adjust to being the only abstracter. and moving. and not having wifi where i’m sleeping right now is throwing me off. but i’m getting to bed on time and working out more… soooooo.. net positive. i don’t think my boyfriend likes it though, he’s already moved all his DVDs and probably just wants to watch some netflix when he gets home but can’t.

he was super cute last night though. i’ve been leaving the bedroom door open for the cats to roam around so they don’t feel so isolated in a mostly empty apartment. momma cat was sleeping with me last night. boyfriend comes home from work around midnight and normally the bedroom door’s shut so i can sleep. he walks into the bedroom and says “hey baby… where’s [momma cat]?” i had already woke up at the noise of him coming in the front door and point to the foot of the bed to answer his question. he walks over and picks her up super gingerly, like she’ll break if he’s not careful.

but he’s holding her out away from him so he doesn’t get a bunch of cat hair stuck to his clothes. llllllooooollllllll

3:11p i saw this recipe for risotto stuffed tomatoes with crispy potatoes and i want to make that sosososososossososososoooo bad but no, no no no. we’re still moving and i might have to replace the refrigerator in the condo. it was hot to the touch when i was there last night. gotta unplug it and find out if the fan is still spinning etc etc etc

might just replace the fucker. that might be cheaper in the long run than keeping an old fridge.
