Shortkatt: i have such a problem with people
Shortkatt: it's not a good thing
Shortkatt: oh did I tell you the news?
Shortkatt: we have MICE on our floor
Shortkatt: yes. so far my room is free of them (knock on wood)
Shortkatt: but everyone else seem to have them
Shortkatt: my roommate actually got bit by one on yesterday... caught one in the trap in another room and she was taking it out and it bit her. spent the day in the er...
bluelane19: that's awful!:(
Shortkatt: i know.
Shortkatt: have meds to take for the next week
Shortkatt: I love how public safety and heath sevices and everyone else seem to have no cares about this....
Shortkatt: we have paper mouse traps and that is IT
bluelane19: little oragami cheese wedges, too?
Shortkatt: no cheese wedges, just paper
Shortkatt: doesn't that just suck???
Shortkatt: and freak me out...
bluelane19: yeah...icky mice
Shortkatt: I'm just annoyed that no one will do anything about it!!!
bluelane19: how aggravating
Shortkatt: it is! it is! it is!
Shortkatt: from my aunt:
Shortkatt: ESSchoettle: Phew!!!! Stay clean and healthy. Don't leave crumbs. Don't talk to anybody. Brush your teeth once a week.
Gotta go I'm starving.....
bluelane19: what was that in response to?
bluelane19: the mice situation?
Shortkatt: but why do I have this font now... grr... but the advice changed, now it is brush your teeth 2X a month...
bluelane19: ahhh cleanliness
Shortkatt: evidently the friction of brushing will knock my teeth out...
Shortkatt: hold on this font is driving me crazy!!!
Shortkatt: a little better
Shortkatt: even more better
Shortkatt: very better
Shortkatt: is very better proper english?
Shortkatt: I liked the sure the best!
Shortkatt: we can always induct it into ER IM official language...
bluelane19: "very better"
Shortkatt: I like very better!
bluelane19: prob. too many positivesw
Shortkatt: am I feeling very better now. well, I'm not, but I can claim I am
Shortkatt: ok my saga of the past week. wanna here?
bluelane19: wanna hear!
Shortkatt: and the answer is yes, it is horse related.
bluelane19: I'm here
Shortkatt: here goes
Shortkatt: but I never said it was a good entertaining saga
bluelane19: go ahead
Shortkatt: You remember last weekend I got back from the horse show complaining that I no longer had a riding coat to where becausethe person's it was had moved up a level and thus was in my class?
Shortkatt: anyway, I sent myself on a mission to find a coat.
bluelane19: uh huh
Shortkatt: on Tuesday I went to Ryerss to see my boyfriend (yes, Dancer is in love with me and now I have an reason to run when Rob tries to hit on me so therefore dancer is my boyfriend)
bluelane19: oooh Dancer and Sarah sitting in a tree...
Shortkatt: and ended up sitting in the office talking to Nancy and Em about my horse show and my current lack of a coat
bluelane19: omg a horse in a tree~
bluelane19: laugh riot
Shortkatt: well he does kiss me...so we are ok there. the tree though??
bluelane19: you see i'm paying close attention
bluelane19: go on!
Shortkatt: so they suggest ebay and looking at the used part of the horse connection
Shortkatt: so I go home at the end of the day cause I needed to do laundry and ate dinner (grilled cheese and tomato soup!) and went on to ebay
Shortkatt: and found to beautiful coats!
bluelane19: two you mean?
Shortkatt: so i email the seller for info and eventually only one idiot e-mails me back
Shortkatt: I got the measurements since the coats are all screwed up sizes
bluelane19: it's says winning bid tho
bluelane19: does that mean its sold?
bluelane19: it's very pretty
Shortkatt: half are euro and the american sizes are not accurate
Shortkatt: and the one person that got back to me, sent me measurements that indicated that the coats were for a kid.
Shortkatt: coat number 1 was a no go and I more or less gave up on number 2 as the price got high for a coat in which I had no clue about size wise.
bluelane19: and somebody got it anyway
bluelane19: I'm sorry
Shortkatt: So my coat saga continued.
bluelane19: any other options on ebay?
Shortkatt: On wednesday after nearly passing out as a result on not eating because i didn't feel well and low blood sugar, I headed to greylyn v8 splash in hand as they were out of oj at school
Shortkatt: when i need oj, they are out of it. it is the best natural sugar and they had NONE!
bluelane19: you tell them sar!
Shortkatt: so anyway, i spent most of my afternoon running around like an ADD kid, hands shaking and all. It was actually amusing though
Shortkatt: that's the effect low blood sugar has on me!
Shortkatt: Anyway, I ended up riding Forsooth and had an incredibly crappy lesson. we waited in line the whole friggen time cause Tara had her students jumping the same line as my class....
Shortkatt: kids nearly got killed cause forsooth is a butt (though I love him anyway! don't tell dancer though) and doesn't like other horses within 4 feet of either side of him or he'll kick out and back
Shortkatt: so anyway, I had my lesson and I personally did well, but was bored out of my mind and overall it was a very crappy lesson
Shortkatt: afterwards once I had cooled out Forsooth and cleaned the ring, filling the already half full 50 gallon much bucket so that it was overflowing and dragged it to the much bucket
Shortkatt: I headed back into the office to clean and organize tack
Shortkatt: let's just say, people are idiots, and those who have their own horses, borrow the school tack. it was so bad that we were missing so much tack for horses we NEEDED to talk up, but it's another story completely...
Shortkatt: so while I was cleaning up and such, I asked barb what products I should be getting for my saddle since she had told me the week before and I forgot... I mentioned that I should actually be able to get it over the weeked as I needed to go on a mission to find a coat anyway, spending millions of dollars I do not have
Shortkatt: see the coat came back!
Shortkatt: the coat saga continues!
Shortkatt: Anyway, as it turns out, by unintentionally mentioning my lack of a riding coat, Barb found out about it and told me that she had 2 old ones she doesn't wear anymore and i would be welcome to either if I wanted and they fit.
Shortkatt: so she gave me her cell phone number (this IS important) so I could call if I couldn't be there on Friday afternoon/evening when we planned on meeting
Shortkatt: give me a sec, head phones are needed to drown out circus music blarring on the tv in the room next door.
Shortkatt: one sec
Shortkatt: ok back
Shortkatt: friday comes and after class I run home drop my stuff off and hed back to malvern to go to Greylyn
Shortkatt: I get there and get harassed by Mike (he cracks me up though) and find out that Barb is in the ring giving a private lesson
bluelane19: uh huh
Shortkatt: I walk in just to find out that she forgot the coats and only remember after mike had returned from his first trip home getting the dog...
Shortkatt: I'm telling you this is a saga...
bluelane19: ooooh Nancy Drew
bluelane19: yeah I know that's a mystery but it will suffice
Shortkatt: So I hang around for the next hour or so watching lessons and talking and such
Shortkatt: Barb tellls me that she'll bring them tomorrow (SAT) but will give me a call when she's leaving for the barn so I have some idea when to get there...
Shortkatt: so I give her my cell phone number as I wasn't sure where I'd be
Shortkatt: now fast forward to saturday.
Shortkatt: I get a phone call at about 12 from Barb and we attempt to have a conversation before my phone kills everything by having no signal
Shortkatt: a half an hour later she calls me back just to be sent after one ring to my voicemail.
Shortkatt: it isn't till 1pm that I realize just how smart I am
Shortkatt: I have her cell phone number and thus could call her from a regular phone.
Shortkatt: idiot that I am
Shortkatt: so I do that and then head over to Greylyn yet again (3X in one week!)
Shortkatt: I get there and they've got both Tony (barb's horse) and Nevada (mikes) (being renamed mouch with an intended show name of mucho gracias if barb ever shows him as well as tony) and there are too many people around (yes I'm forgetting my point)... anyway
Shortkatt: the first words after waving and "hi sarah!"are from mike, "you're cell phone sucks"
Shortkatt: thanks a lot...
Shortkatt: anyway, Barb remember the coats, though the first time they pulled out the drive way, she forgot...
Shortkatt: and I now have a riding coat without spending 1 million dollars! yay!
Shortkatt: of course, the first one which was supposedly less comfortable of the two fit so I didn't get to try on the other one which isn't quite as proper as the other and since people (well, rachel, owner of greylyn) made fun of barb for wearing it, she figured she'd spare me that one...
Shortkatt: anyway, i hung around for an hour or so, helping barb pull willie's mane (cause he's willie!) and just hanging around. and people there are quite amusing and mean... if you take millions of minutes on a school pony, you get made fun of.... long story. too tired ot type all of that
Shortkatt: anyway, I left and realized that i needed gas
Shortkatt: (I tell you, my saga continues)
Shortkatt: and was near E on my tank
Shortkatt: so I reach over to grab my wallet and it's not there!
Shortkatt: i call my mom who informs me I left it at home and so i turn around and drive home with my gas light on the whole time
Shortkatt: I got home and it was below E!
bluelane19: That's so scary
Shortkatt: so basically waste the rest of the day before getting gas and then going to see Intolerable Cruelty!
Shortkatt: such a good movie!
Shortkatt: it was quite bizarre, but at the end you realize just how good it was
Shortkatt: I love George and Catherine together! they are PERFECT! how many years did that match take to come about?
Shortkatt: anyway, on a side note, if you ever want to see it and its still out and such, I'll go with you!
bluelane19: I'd love to
Shortkatt: maybe during our LM weekend or something since I will be dragging you to that! probably pick you up on sat and drop you off sun since it's too much driving in one day
Shortkatt: oh yeah, the rest of my saga
Shortkatt: Barb mentioned on Friday that if I wanted I could ride on Friday, even though it's only a makeup day for her. I think she knows how much i've hated the crappy lessons lately so she suggested that. so i'm agreeing but it'll be on a weekly basis. if i don't feeling going some friday, then just tell her that wed and I can ride either at the semi private she's adding at 8 or whenever else I want
Shortkatt: I love the freedom i get with lessons now
Shortkatt: so yesterday I went out to Rick's (tack store) to get stuff for my saddle (could only find the one thing... grrr...)
Shortkatt: and ended up finding a pair of boots that FIT!
Shortkatt: they weren't cheap ($100) but at least I won't stick out like a sore thumb in my suade (not even leather!!!) half chaps
Shortkatt: I also got a new helmet that IS approved so that's happy too!
Shortkatt: btw, the pic is just a version of mine now on ebay
Shortkatt: of course, I didn't need a coat and still spent a million dollars, but with the coat it would have been 2 billion
Shortkatt: why does horse stuff have to be so expensive???
Shortkatt: I'm definitely continueing to show (without school maybe even and with Greylyn this summer/spring maber...) since i have everything I need. haha
Shortkatt: oooh! It
Shortkatt: so good that I don't drink
bluelane19: of course
Shortkatt: we had champagne last night (long story) and my small glass left me so jumpy and headachy that I wonder what I'd be like if I actuall drink
Shortkatt: this was at home though
Shortkatt: and ALIAS was on!!!!
Shortkatt: i gotted to see mv! and weiss (greg grum-grrr... the guy married to Meghan on Felicity) gave Sydney a 3rd edition copy of Alice in Wonderland and got drunk with her and owuld have gotten the 1st edition had it not been 40,000...
Shortkatt: too cute.
Shortkatt: not that you would care
Shortkatt: and I won my mom's auction on ebay! go me! I did well! highest bid with 11 seconds left!
bluelane19: for what?
Shortkatt: celebration of some sort....
bluelane19: no the auction
bluelane19: mom's auction
Shortkatt: a doll my mom wanted
Shortkatt: she's on a doll shopping spree
Shortkatt: $2000 worth... it's crazy!
Shortkatt: http://cgi.aol.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2956017290&category=2433&rd=1 Shortkatt: pretty doll though
Shortkatt: she's crazy I must say!
bluelane19: it is a pretty doll.
Shortkatt: cagney is FAMOUS!
bluelane19: Yes! But I love Toby the best.
bluelane19: Toby is a sweetheart.
Shortkatt: toby had a heart attack when i left today. she was bawling her eyes out! it broke my heart
Shortkatt: I miss her!
Shortkatt: hopefully tomorrow I can see her!
bluelane19: wtf you don't mean a real heart attack?!
Shortkatt: emotional one
bluelane19: ok thank god
bluelane19: poor baby
Shortkatt: she does that everytime I leave
bluelane19: you scared me!
Shortkatt: and everytime I come back
Shortkatt: awww sorry

Shortkatt: i love my Bow
Shortkatt: O:-) = Toby!

bluelane19: Yea! LM SUCKS!
bluelane19: Go Radnor!
Shortkatt: go Radnor!
bluelane19: I don't want to see all the ucky people so I am going as my alias Nancy and I'm wearing a ski mask! Cheers~
Shortkatt: who'd have thunk it that we'd still care about Radnor after graduation?!
bluelane19: I know...
Shortkatt: um right.
Shortkatt: so you say
