Getting back to normal catwise

Well, it’s about $800 bucks later but June, thank God, is almost totally better!  She was in a bad way but they were able to pull her out of it.  It was Dr. Glater who saved her.  She got a cathater, an IV and a drainpipe in her face.  Came home on Tuesday looking MUCH much better.  I’m so relieved she’s okay that the money seems pretty insignificant right now.  She’s on antibiotics now & I’ll need to give her potassium supplements for the rest of her (hopefully long) life, but she’s fine otherwise.  I sure am relieved!!!

Amy Domingues is coming into town on Sunday.  It’ll be so nice to see her.

I’m still in total PalmPilot mania, playing with my new IIIc constantly.  I’ll get over the novelty eventually I guess.  When hell freezes over!  Heheh.

June’s better

Found out Juney is doing much better!! Yay!!  Her fever has broken and they tell me she’s alert and moving around more.  They’re keeping her overnight again, she can come home tomorrow after they take the drain out of her face.  :-| Thank God she made it through that awful fever!!  I *so* thought she was a goner.

Jordan from the Big Brother show went on Letterman tonight.  She looked great.  I’m kinda rooting for her.

Waiting for news

We had a pretty blah Sunday.  Breakfast at the Ravenswood with WGC was nice, but the rest of the day was grey and full of worry about Junebug.  Haven’t heard anything from the vet about her condition — they’re there on Sundays but not taking phone calls.  I hope no news is good news in this case.  I’ll find out tomorrow when they open.  :-|

John and I watched "Life is Beautiful" on video tonight.  Our cable had gone out due to a huge windy rainstorm we’d had earlier.  Great movie, I cried at the end.  John wanted to know if I think Kevin Spacey is cute… how cute!

June gets sick, then a WGC show

Junebug’s really sick.  Me and John got home from the Chestnut show last night (it went well by the way) and found June sprawled on the couch, sick as a dog.  All glassy-eyed and floppy as if she’d been drugged.  This was around three in the morning — we took her to the emergency vet and he said she had an abcessed tooth.  Freaky because Elsa (John’s kitty) just had two teeth pulled, about two weeks ago.  Of course June is at least ten years older than Elsa and I guess it hit her harder.  Sure came on suddenly — one day she’s her normal lazy self and the next she’s a zombie.

Registration schmegistration!

Note: This is a journal entry — it was written on paper or on my computer, then transferred to my website, maybe years later.


Well, I registered PalmJournal last night at PalmGear.  Also SymbolHack and Thoughtmill.  I know I can find cracked versions on the ‘net for any program I want, but hey, I like the idea of supporting the authors, since I try to live off royalties myself.

Funny how this thing doesn’t let you make multiple entries on the same day — I always go to bed at around 5am so my "days" are a little skewed timewise.  I really like the program though.  What a geek — installing & registering an app just so I can take notes about how much I like the app!!

Boring without Jordan

Note: This is a journal entry — it was written on paper or on my computer, then transferred to my website, maybe years later.


Should I register this program?  Am I really going to use it?  Should I just use Memo Pad for my journal and make the records private?  NAAAH….  I kinda like this.  (grin)

Big Brother was boring tonight without Jordan… :-( Shit, she was probably on Letterman tonight and I missed it.  Me and John watched some Arnold Schwarzenegger flick called "End of Days".  I had huge problems with the plotline etc., but it served its purpose, we wanted to see a stupid movie! Gabriel Byrne was Satan.  Sheesh!!

JournalEase

Just downloaded this journal program.  Pretty kewl!!  Only a nag screen, nice.  I dig it, I’ll probably register it.  Wish you could see an index view though.  Also you can’t have multiple entries on the same day, oh well.

Wow, they just voted Gervase off the Survivor island, and Jordan out of the Big Brother house.  I kinda liked Jordan, maybe I identify with her bitchiness and manipulativeness!!  :-)

The Hideout (Chicago, IL)

Opened for Archer Prewitt at the Hideout

My band: Archer Prewitt (drums, backing vocals), Ryan Hembrey (electric bass), Mark Greenberg (keyboards)

Did you notice?

I changed my colors around.  Just fiddling around with the look’n’feel — I made a new set of banners using CoolText and then of course my old colors looked ugly; I’m still messing with those so bear with me until I find a legible combination.  Also, I know I’ve changed my links around about five times already, but guess what, I blew off JumpList.  It was just too unwieldy for me, AND I got all excited about this other service I found, LinkGuard.  It checks all the links on your entire site very quickly for free.  I can run this service anytime I want, so why should I keep my links on a separate server and wait for Jumplist to verify ‘em?


Whoah…

Tripod has just bumped up our space to 50 megs instead of 11!!  That’s really good news, I’m just not sure what to do with it.  ;-)

Empty Bottle (Chicago, IL)

My links at JumpList

I’ve moved my links over to my new account at JumpList, where I can have nice cascading folders and my links will be checked automatically for me.  Thank god!!  That’s been my downfall ever since — hey, I’ve been on the web five years now!! — anyway, link-checking is always a pain so this way I can let the list expand without cutting into my sleep-time too much trying to check them all for staleness every month or so.  The new service has a search engine too, and you can even suggest favorite links I might want to add.


Good King William

The family tree’s been bothering me.  I deleted all that crap about being descended from William the Conqueror… I was looking at the dates, and checking some stuff out on the web about that lineage, and I can’t seem to find any that agree with each other!  It all looked so fishy to me that I just got out the pruning shears and deleted everything I could find that was before the year 1500.  An arbitrary number but it’s easy to remember!

UPDATE: Of course I later decided to put it back online, for better or for worse…

Booooo-ring

Not much going on website-wise this week, I’ve been working on music too much I guess.  Well, I did add a couple of Chicago dates to the gig-alert page, that’s something!
