Got a call from the vet--yup, Nefer's got a UTI. Heading home from work early to wrangle her into the carrier to get an antibiotic injection. Traumatic as that is, it'll be less traumatic in the long run than us trying to pill her daily...this is a cat that does NOT want to be pilled.*


* We've been giving her a prescribed anti-nausea pill this week as an experiment to see if it has any effect on her frequent barfing. It's been remarkably non-traumatic because (a) it's teeny tiny and (b) I struck upon the idea of making a little bread ball and shoving it in there because she loves bread so much, and she's eaten it every time. But it's very, very crumbly, and I think a non-crumbly pill won't work with that. So far, no barfing. We *think*--it could easily be in some place we haven't looked. But all of a sudden they're not eating as much food, which could be a sign that she's keeping her meals down and not having to nibble as much. So yay?

7/21/16 10:17 am - Toby on Fallout 4 last night

Come on, I'm shooting a laser! You gotta know where I'm at!

Why am I carrying around the Massachusetts Medical Journal?

Ooh a fisherman's hat with lures on it!

You lose some of the creepiness of the fog with that weird horizontal artifact. Oh, wait, it's the ocean.

[when an event fails to trigger so the characters stand around in a tableau instead of conversing] Anyone? Hello? Can I stand on the Child of Atom? Not for lack of trying! See my hair? Admire it! Are you admiring it?

[to a fussy robot] You sound like my grandmother.

Shoot him in the butt! And it launches him! He gets air!

It's your own fault for falling down that I get to shoot you in the head.

I'll make you carry this shit, Nick. I'll shove it into your inventory.

We had to take Nefer in to the vet on Monday morning because she'd been displaying signs of a UTI. No definite diagnosis yet, because we had to go home with a urine sample kit, which consists of a small handful of nonabsorbent sand, a pipette, and a vial. Toby telecommuted today and we locked Nefer into the spare bedroom and hall bath (they're connected), and set up the spycam to keep an eye on the litter substitute. It worked, and I even got the pics before Toby did, so I texted him that Nefer had been at the litter, and he collected the sample and took it in to the vet. We'll find out more after they have a chance to test it.

But all that is to say that we haven't gotten around to taking the camera up yet, and the cats have been wandering in and out of the bathroom all afternoon, trying to figure out what's up, and these three shots caught Sora with the right timing and going in the right direction to make it look like he's spread out over three pictures.



Well, I found it interesting.

Thank you autocorrect for turning “navel-gaze” into “bagel-faze” in this semi-professional thing I am attempting to compose.

7/20/16 12:59 pm - Things Toby said while playing Fallout 4 last night

I’m IN POWER ARMOR, homes.

YES! In the face!

Come on dude, figure it out. Your buddy’s dead. You’re smarter than that. Bye!

*cackles madly* I love it when their heads come off!

[after targeting a wolf identified as Vicious Wolf] I’m going to adopt a wolf and name it Sid. Where’d he go? Come on, Sid! *shoots, laughs* Spinning head! Huh. For some reason the wolf has pre-war money.

*evil laugh* Point-blank in the face! Wait, why are you on fire? Why am *I* on fire??

Whoa! Okay, you’re named. Suck it!

Is this how you want to end? Cause I can make that happen. Oh, I did make that happen.

Really? You see what I did to your friends? Evidently not.

*high-pitched giggle*

Oh! In the crotch! I’m kinda sorry about that, dude. But not much.

Just for that I’m going to shoot your legs. Oops, I was only able to do one.

Why do you have nuclear material on you? That’s really not healthy.

Sora would do this if he could get away with it. He loves putting his paws on my face, and periodically I have to re-train him not to do it by yeeping and putting my hands on my face when he puts a paw there. (I don't want him touching my face because litterbox. I don't know why other people let their cats paw their faces or kiss their pawpads if you are one of them I DON'T WANT TO KNOW. REALLY.)

aaagh I have been stalking this guy's military stock photos for months now, because I am too chicken to just email* and ask what he charges for his pack of 500 military stock photos. I haven't actually don anything with them yet, but they make my fingers itch to paint something using them.


*social anxiety YAY!

Ghostbusters. Go see it. Really.


Toby is now having the time of his life because he has to decide if he's getting the Funko Pop Holtzmann or the Funko Pop Holtzmann in the Ecto-1.

(I also played him Julie Brown's "I Like Them Big and Stupid" on the way home in honor of Kevin.)
