My cat is very strange, I have realized. Yufi has been with us for a month. Funny, it seems much longer. Whenever Yufi wakes up, she is really needy. She is all up on you, like white on rice. She will want to nibble on your ear. She likes to attack my head. She has a thing for hair. She likes to eat, lick, and attack; whichever strikers her fancy first. Sometimes, she wants you to pet her. But, for some reasons, I think for entertainment purposes, she will bite you. I have no idea as to why she does that. She’ll even go as far as to lick your hand. I always think that is positive encouragement to continue to pet her since she licks my hand. But, no, she gets you. She bites you and licks you. It’s weird.
Before I go to work, I always stick an ice cube in her water dish. I know I always appreciate cold water, why wouldn’t my cat? Well, now it’s a game. I stick it in there and she goes nuts! She goes into stalk mode. I don’t know why my cat is so strange, but she is. She likes to attack things that move under blankets and she now has a thing for attacking the curtains.
She loves to sleep on the couch and bat her paws at the window whenever she sees anything that moves. She likes to sleep right behind my head on the couch, so just in case some hair moves around, she’s in a prime location for her attack.
I am so strange. I find everything she does so cute and amazing. That is however, if she wakes me up in the morning, then it’s not so cute and amazing, but more so annoying and bratty. I love my cat like a fat kid loves cake. How can I not?
I am fed up of being taken advantage of. HP is the last straw, I hope. No, I am sure. There is no next time for me helping her and anyone who doesn’t deserve my help. HP is officially on my S**t list. I am trying not to curse in this blog, however, I feel in this situation I need to. After thinking about the situation, I think I have come to a realization of what is really make me mad and making me feel so frustrated.
I think what is pissing me off is that HP is taking advantage of what kind of person I am. I am the type of person who will do the right thing. HP is putting me in the position where I have to do the right thing, even though I don’t want to do the right thing. I don’t ask to be put into these situations. I would be happy not knowing what is going on. But, what else can I do but accept, smile, and move on?
That is what I feel like doing…stomping on faces. One face in particular is a girl at work, I shall name Helpless Girl (HP). HP is starting to piss me off. So, last Friday, was my day off. However, HP was crying about how she needed to talk to her TA about her final exam grade and all this stuff. She asked me to pick up her shift. I wouldn’t have minded except that she called me an hour and half before she had to go in. That just pisses me off. Please just give me a little more notice! You know how sometimes you get into the mindset that it’s your day off and you can do as you please? That was me! I had a plan and I was planning on being very productive; you know, housework stuff. But, all that was dashed because she needed me to pick it up. Me, coming from an Asian family understands how education is very important, so I didn’t mind taking one for the team. However, the way I accepted it should have scared her, or so I thought.
When she called me, I was very curt and short with her. I was annoyed with her. She always does this! Her and Flaky Girl (FP). FP is a different story, however. I tried to make HP feel bad about what she was doing (i.e. making me feel bad enough for her to take her shift) and make her understand what an inconvenience it was to me. I know you all must be wondering why didn’t just say no? I didn’t say no because I am pushover and I honestly felt bad for her. But, in the end, Karma ended on being on my side because I made $60 that night. Sweet. But, I thought the way I responded to her needs should have made her think twice about ever asking me to take her shift.
Or so I thought…She asked me AGAIN to take her shift for tomorrow. I understand that she was in South Florida during Tropical Storm Fay and that she had no way to get there. But, it was just that she acts so, well, HELPLESS, about it. She didn’t think Fay would get there? Did she not think that the storm was not going to hit? Did she think to leave sooner than expected? I guess not. What makes me so mad is that she thinks she can be cute and be so “naiive” that she can get away with it. She thinks she can get away with taking advantage of people (me) without Karma expecting to come and get her. Well, believe me, it is. And, when it does, I can’t wait.
I finally went through the FAQs and found out how to upload pictures…So, here’s Yufi:
She’s beautiful, if not a brat. Just last night, she stepped into her own poo and decided to prance around the apartment with her poo on her foot and tail. It was not fun, but it makes for a funny story to tell friends.
I enjoy rainy days. I enjoy them most on my days off and spending it with the SO and the new addition to the family, my kitten, Yufi. This is how we have spent our day off together:
Wake up at noon, play/cuddle with Yufi, eat lunch @ Peach Valley, go to Asian Market, Starbucks, get my eyebrows done, get some reading material at Barnes and Nobles, go home for an hour, go to Farmer’s Market and Ward’s, come home and read.
It didn’t start raining until we left Ward’s and by then we were in a monsoon. However, rainy days bring out the stupidest of stupid drivers. I for one, am a very cautious if not an annoyingly slow driver. I got into an accident on the turnpike in the rain and have been since scared. What baffles me is how some people just don’t put on their headlights in the rain. My road rage comes out in full force and I have no pity nor sympathy for people such as that. The headlights are not for you alone, it is for all around you. Because of some idiot who doesn’t put on their headlights, there are many in danger of losing their lives. It seems so silly to be upset/annoyed by that, but alas, here I am venting about it.
Besides the stupidity of drivers, my overall day has been delightful. I am contemplating going to kick boxing though. I haven’t worked out in two weeks, even though I have been meaning to do so more often. I have laundry being done and I don’t think I have to cook tonight since the SO cooked enough for an army last night. At this moment in time, the SO is sharing funny little tidbits from his current reading material, Las Halles Cookbook by Anthony Bourdain. Anthony Bourdain is our new thing right now. I think he will be our new thing for a very long time. Funny and interesting Anthony Bourdain tidbits, possible working out, and an oh-so-cute Yufi sleeping next me: PERFECT.
I think at this moment, this is as content I am going to be for a while. Life is pretty much perfect. I got my little kitty. She’s purrfect. =) I will post pictures as I figure out how to do that. I just took her to the vet and she is healthy and none too happy with me. I think it was the heat and the bumpy car ride. She got her shots and now she’s sleeping off her trauma. The SO and I are good…no, perfect. The apartment is shaping up nicely. We just need a little color to liven things up.
It sucks to save drafts and not remember a damn thing to write next. Consider this post done and I am off to write a new one.
