    I'm so nervous about this trip, more then being excited. I should be excited, but, of course, I'm more nervous.

    F**k,. I'm so sorry. I really hope you'll be able to find out who took your car. Hopefully everything will still be intact.

    Sending vibes your way.

    So I completed a continuing education credit online a few months ago. Had the certificate of completion emailed to me, and held on to the email to print later. Well "later" is today, because I need to send in all my re-certification stuff by the end of the month. So I go to that email to print my certificate and the stupid link doesn't work anymore and I can't access it!!
    The whole thing that I did doesn't even exist anymore. It's not like I can even just redo it.

    So I spent an hour of my life watching a video about taking cats to vet clinics, and taking a corresponding quiz, for no reason. No reason.

    THANK GOD I have other sources for getting CE credits or I would be unbelievably pissed right now if I had to scramble trying to redo that 1 credit.

    As much as I hate zombies, for some reason, I decided to watch World War Z.

    And I just wanna puke. I don't know why zombies make me feel this way, but I could genuinely throw up right now.

    Ugh. Why did I do this. The movie itself isn't that bad, actually. I've seen a lot worse. But omfg the zombies. At first it was fine because you didn't really SEE the zombies that much, or for very long.

    Zombieland was fine. I actually loved Zombieland. I just need to give up trying to be okay with zombies, I think. I'm more okay with bees and spiders than I am with zombies.

    I actually thought they were a bit more creepy than the usual zombies...the biting/chipmunk teeth chattering thing kind of skeeved me :p. And don't watch Warm Bodies then...there were 'normal' zombies, and then way far gone super zombies that were creepers. :)

    Does anybody else think I might be crazy/stupid to apply for a vet tech job when I'm allergic to cats? I mean, I'm not deathly allergic. I don't start going anaphylactic. But if cats touch my skin and I don't wash up shortly after, I break out in hives. And woe to me if I toe a cat and then touch my eyes, because they won't stop burning for hours.
    I only know for sure this is on the shelter cats, I've not touched somebody's pet cat and tried it (most of my friends have dogs, and those with cats, well, the cats stay at home...) I can't be sure it wasn't something from the not-quite-so-clean shelter environment... the shelter dogs never bothered me, though of course their coats had that nasty, greasy, not super clean feel to them, but it never made my skin break into hives.

    Or is this something theoretically I could deal with? Handle a cat, then go scrub down like I'm going into surgery afterward..? I'm just not sure how realistic it is... I know some of you are/have been techs so I figured I might ask. =P Because I'm sort of thinking it won't really work out well. But I really really hate my job right now and nobody else is calling me...

    I love zombie culture in general, but I have this weird thing where I legit think a zombie apocalypse could happen... so watching realistic zombie stuff like World War Z and Walking Dead is akin to watching a horror movie. And I don't do well watching horror movies. :p

    I know people in the field who are allergic to cats (they get cold like symptoms when exposed - runny eyes, sneezing, etc). They try to expose the least amount of skin to a cat as possible (gloves), then wash up afterwards. I'm allergic to *something* at the clinic I work at (I think it is one of the cleaners) and I just take a zyrtec before my shift starts so I don't end up in hives.

    But you will be handling cats. There is no avoiding it. If you're willing to take steps around it (wash/meds), it wouldn't be horrible, it don't think.

    Yeah, the longer that one was chattering at Brad Pitt, the more I was grossed out.

    I wanted to see Warm Bodies, but if they're really bad... I don't think I can. Zombieland was legit the only zombie movie I've seen (not that I've watched a whole lot because of ew factor, lol) that I was totally okay with, even though I was really grossed out. But it was too funny to not like it.


    There were a few moments of WWZ where I got that feeling, like I wouldn't be surprised if a zombie was sneaking up behind me. So yeah, it was a horror movie.

    I also think a zombie apocalypse could happen. There was this one show on the science channel or discovery or something, where they were discussing HOW it could happen. Like, combine rabies and the flu and boom, zombies. THAT kind of stuff intrigues me. But zombies themselves? I just can't.

    I didn't even think about gloves - that's a good idea! I figured I'd try suiting up with long sleeves or something, but gloves didn't even occur to me.


    My co-worker is currently on his cellphone in the other room getting a job offer, just like I suspected. So... guess I'd better apply.

    This.

    At my job I have to handle hay, which I am allergic to, my skin breaks out in rashes and hives, but I combat that with hydrocortisone creams and benedryl when necessary, but I can usually prevent it if I wear a long sleeved shirt when handling hay.

    Had a negative experience with my doctor today, bad enough that I'll probably be looking for a new PCP. Bummer. At least I got my thyroid pills.

    Had a dream about someone I haven't seen in like 11 years. Haven't even talked to him in like a year. And the dream was just so happy, and I felt so whole, and it just sucks cause now I feel kind of empty. Why do dreams have to feel so real?
