Moving!

That’s right, I got a domain. So if you’re usually here for reviews go here. If you like to read my day to day randomness go here.

Let’s Get This Party Started

To be honest, I didn’t go to a single party this year. Unless you count Kenna’s birthday party of course. I’m not the party type. I don’t drink very often, and if I do I don’t get drunk. Partially because I have a relatively high tolerance, and partly because I don’t enjoy the feeling of being out of control.

I did go to a local Western club with some friends a couple of times. I found out I’m whiter than even the average country person. I can’t two step. I think about it way too much. The music was fun, the people were nice (except for the creep drunk old men) and in general it was a nice time out of the house.

My Pet Pet Peeve

This isn’t going to come out nicely at all, so if you’re easily offended please leave now.

I’ve ranted about this before on my domain. It’s a big freaking deal. Letting your dog or cat have one heat has no effect on their personality or maturity at all. In fact letting them experience this first heat makes them more likely to develop mammary cancer later in life. This cancer is potentially fatal, and while treatment is highly effective when caught early, it is expensive.

The same goes for letting them have one litter, or cover one female. Your dog or cat will not “miss” having a litter. They will know no different. They aren’t humans, they experience no grief when having their reproductive organs removed like humans. Anthropomorphism is a slippery slope, and can be a highly dangerous one. Let me make this clear. YOUR ANIMAL IS NOT A HUMAN. We have no proof that when they greet your with a wagging tail, or curl up in your lap, they are exhibiting “love”. Or that when they chew up your favorite shoes, shred your curtains, or poop in the house, they are being vindictive for a punishment you gave them earlier.

When you breed your pet, knowingly or by “accident”, you are potentially killing puppies and kittens that never needed to exist. When the pups or kittens from your “one litter” end up in shelters, they’re killing the older dogs in that shelter. It’s a known fact that when people adopt animals they want babies. The adults are less desired and have a hard enough time being adopted without having to compete with your cute fluffy little babies in the next cage over.

So, spay and neuter. Your ignorance kills.

All Come Together

This year I joined Daydreamz, and even though I already knew the vast majority of the members, the tone and community is unlike other message boards I’ve been part of. I really enjoy being part of it. I’ve also opened my self up to the sex toy review community, and that has been a blast. I’ve learned a lot about myself as a result, and have learned a lot about the industry.

In 2011 I want to connect with the animal and veterinary community in my area more. I’m going to start classes at the community college, and hopefully will get somewhere. I’d also like to find some playgroups, but I’m not sure that will happen. I’m not a very social person in real life, and I don’t really think I’d be able to identify very well with a playgroup full of married SAHM’s.

Stop it with the fun memes people

Yeah, I know I was doing that one meme, but I’m putting it on hold. I decided to start Reverb 10. I’ll start the other one backup once this one ends. Or I won’t because by then I should (hopefully) have a domain again.

To make sure this post isn’t completely pointless I’m going to flood you with cute Kenna pictures. Which hurts my heart a little because she’s losing her baby-ness and it’s going to be a long, long, long time before she gets a sibling.

It’s That Time of Year

Earlier today I got my Christmas card from Dez, so begins this time of year. I LOVE getting Christmas cards (if you want one from me this year be sure to get your address to me). This year I think I’ll be getting mine from Shutterfly. They have a few really cute designs, and I will have no shortage of pictures of Kenna to put on there.

Actually, I might buy a few other things while I’m on there. Last year we ordered a mug with a picture of a screaming three month old Kenna. (It’s actually really cute, I swear). Of course I’ve considered going the more traditional route and just sending out regular Christmas cards as well. I never sent out a single Christmas card until I had Kenna. But now I send them to everyone. No one sees me, but show me one person who doesn’t like to see a smiling chubby baby face!

All I Want For Christmas

There’s this meme going around, and apparently it’s been going on for the past few years and I have been living under a rock. But I’m going to participate because it’s like window shopping and you all want to know what I really want for Christmas right?

Step One
Make a post to your blog, tumblr, facebook, myspace, what have you. The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really want and that people can see the post. If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just an email address at which you can be contacted by potential wish-grantors.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your post, so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
Surf around your friends list/blogroll/RSS feeds (or friends friends, or just random places ) to see who has posted their list. If you have a list be sure to leave it in my comments section so I can view your wishes! If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you won’t use–or even know where you could get someone’s dream purebred Basset Hound for free–do it.

Wishlist
If you are able to help out with any of these you can either reach me here, twitter (@onlytuesdays) or via email (firekittenz [at]gmail.com). And Thank You and Merry Christmas!

  • Some jeans that just fit me properly. Looking for something of length, non saggy in the butt and approximately a size 8. Silver Jeans are fabulous. 🙂
  • Renewal of Flickr Pro. Because I have a kid and kids = lots of pictures that I just haven’t caught up with yet.
  • A car. A rolling hunk of metal that won’t die on me and preferably already has tags.
  • A job. Good Lord get me a job and get me out of here.
  • A necklace/ring of some sort with August’s birthstone. Something simple like this or this. Because Kenna broke mine, and ironically enough it’s her birthstone.
  • Giftcards are always welcome. 🙂
