This better work

I can't deal with the take your pill battle with Bosco for 10 days. I think I'd rather wrestle a crocodile. Cats are smart though. Look at this comment I found on amazon.

Now we give him several "pill hiding treats" throughout the day, and only one of them has the pill in it, but he never knows which one it is. Although we never put it in the very first one, or the very last one. This has been working now for about a month, but I figure were running out of time on this one and had better start thinking up a new plan of attack before we are once again outsmarted by the cat.

Cats are so sneaky! You know in the movies when people pretend to take their drugs in the mental hospital but really they hide them in their mouth and spit them out? That's what cats do.

"I totally swallowed that pill, leave me alone!"

casually goes to the corner and spits it out

Wish me luck.

You're my girl J Law

It's ok J Law! This is why we should be friends. I trip going up the stairs all the time. The only difference is I don't have an Oscar. So if anyone tries to give you crap, just ask them how many Oscars they've won.

Seth MacFarlane was a boring host.

According to twitter the ladies love Christopher Plummer. I was one one those ladies. I appreciated the little Sound of Music bit.

Enough about the Oscars. I'm sure you've read all about it via facebook and twitter and the internets in general.

I'm not done talking about movies though.

Warm Bodies was pretty good. I laughed quite a bit. My only problem with the book and the movie is that the zombies don't really act very zombie like all the time. R's train of thought is too human. I get they're suppose to be "changing" and it's not like I have real life zombies to go off of so I'm ok with that. Overall I enjoyed the movie and it was pretty close to the book.

Also, Nicholas Hoult makes a hot zombie.

Ginny's Oscar predictions

Here are some of my predictions for Oscar night:

Daniel Day-Lewis wins for Best Actor because Daniel Day-Lewis always wins. He is the male Meryl Streep.

Tommy Lee Jones loses to Christoph Waltz just so I can see his pissed off face.

Jennifer Lawrence wins and we become best friends! (I'm working on how to make the second part of this happen)

Seth MacFarlane is a boring Oscar host.

I guess we shall see if my predictions are correct.

Useless talents and zombie date night

I'm sure Derek loved when I sang every single song that the DJ was playing at the bar last night. It involved hand movements and a serious singing face. Remembering song lyrics is one of my only talents so I feel the need to share that talent with my boyfriend. Poor guy.

Anyone else have useless talents? Please share.

Tonight we're going to see Warm Bodies and then maybe watch last weeks episode of The Walking Dead.

Zombie date night = very romantic.

Enjoy your time BUT NOT FOR TOO LONG

Enjoy your time at our restaurant (BUT ONLY FOR 1.5 HOURS THEN YOU'RE DONE). And please eat all your food or WE CHARGE YOU DOUBLE.

I just want to eat some Sushi, I don't need all these rules in tiny print.

I see your light from miles away

I'm excited that Fall Out Boy is releasing a new album but I'm not a big fan of their first single.

I'm hoping the rest of the album doesn't sound like this. Fingers crossed.

Garbage has a new album out too and I had no idea!

I love Shirley Mansion. She always looks beautiful. I hope I look that good when I'm 46.

I think Shirley and Gwen Stefani secretly have this fountain of youth that they've had hidden since the 90s. They don't age.

Slush bomb

Can I pretend it's the 4th of July instead of February? I was walking to the T this morning and a plow drove by and dirty slushy snow was sprayed all over me. Disgusting.

I brought Bosco to the vet and he does have to have teeth pulled again. They might just pull all of them in the back since he just had dental work done last year. The vet said that Bosco was his favorite cat of the day and couldn't get over how well behaved he was. He never tries to wiggle away, bite or scratch. He's the easiest cat to get into the carrier. I just open the door to the carrier and he goes right in. I think it's because he's a little dense and is all "oh, what's in here?" Mr. Binx knows exactly what it is and will never fall for that.

Other events of this weekend: I have discovered that I am over crab rangoon and it's all about the scallion pancake now. Just wanted to let you know in case we ever go on a game show and they ask you what my favorite Chinese food item is.

I'm not a germaphobe but

I can't handle people who put their bags on the floor on the T. My brain just screams GERMS!! It makes me want to gag. I don't even like to put my grocery bag on the floor. I hold it.

I also wash my hands first thing when I get off the T even if I haven't touched anything.

And don't get me started about eating on the T. That's just crazy! Not as crazy as the guy who was gutting a fish on the T at the China Town stop.

So if you haven't gathered I think the T is gross and I don't like touching anything when I'm on it.

Also, save the fish gutting for your home.

Now with less glitter (sadly)

I kind of miss being in elementary school and getting cards and candy put in my little box that I so lovingly covered with as much pink and red glitter as possible. Good times!

As with most holidays (except for St. Paddy's Day and marathon Monday) Valentines Day was more fun as a kid.

If anyone who reads my blog needs a Valentine I will volunteer myself. As your Valentine I give you permission to eat as much cookies and chocolate as you want.

So have a happy Valentines Day!

I'd like a tax deduction for my cats please

I see no reason why I shouldn't be allowed to claim my cats as dependents on my taxes. I feed them, I clean their litter box, I buy special cat tooth brushes and cat tooth paste, I buy them expensive cat food that's good for their teeth, I brush them, I spend a fortune at the vet. I see no reason why I shouldn't be allowed to claim them with all the work I do.

The whole point is that I'm pretty sure Bosco needs dental work again. I'm assuming it will cost me at least a grand. I'm going to ask them if they take payment via black market organs. I do have two kidneys. Basically it's the government's fault if I have to start selling organs.

I'm sure you can relate if you have pets. They're my responsibility and I'm going to take care of them no matter what, it's just a tad painful thinking about how much money they cost you sometimes.

Also, if you have any tips about how to brush your cat's teeth I'm all ears.

I think there was a blizzard or something

Number one rule for blizzard survival.

Get your wine and your snacks.

I wasn't very impressed with the Skinny Girl wine. It was just ok.

I braved the storm to visit Melissa for a bit. I don't know what I was thinking. The wind was whipping right into my face. I could barely see.

I made it though, looking like this.

I took a walk around my neighborhood to see how bad it was. I saw a few cars that were stuck because people are dumb and tried to drive.

I'm glad I don't have a car right now because I hate shoveling and I have to look on the bright side of not having a car.

I need a vacation somewhere warm, or it can just be spring now.

Nemo's coming

Now I did asked for a good ol' fashioned Nor'Easter BUT I asked for it on a week day so I could miss work. We do get to leave at noon tomorrow so I guess that's not so bad.

Don't worry I got my supplies.

Pirates Booty, wine (2 bottles, just in case), tortilla chips, black olives(???). I think I'm good. The super market was insanity - every man for himself. I always like to see what other people deem essential. Let me tell you, the booze was in high demand.

Check back we're I'll be reporting from the front lines of Nemo. And by "front lines" and "reporting" I mean peeking out my window and going "it's really coming down out there guys!"

early 20s vs late 20s

Well I'm officially in the last year of my 20s. I got to thinking about how I've changed since my early 20s and there has been some pretty big changes.

My dating life: In my early 20s (and heck even my mid 20s)! I dated jerks. If a guy showed me attention and was in a band (insert eye roll). I was all over that. The problem is a lot of these guys were not looking for anything serious and if I thought about it were not right for me. Now this isn't to say that there aren't nice musicians out there. I just was not going after them because why would I like to make things easy and date a nice guy who had his life together?

Honestly if I met some of those guys I dated now I would not be attracted to them.

Style: Sometimes I wore clothing that was a little too tight and a little too short. No need for that. Next up is actually purchasing belts. I'm pretty anti belt but it needs to happen. I'm also much more into wearing dresses now.

Confidence: Still working on this but it's getting better. I'm more likely to stick up for myself now and not be a doormat.

Religion: I was raised Catholic but as of right now I don't consider myself to be part of any religion. I won't go into this too much as it can be a touchy subject but I now consider myself an atheist.

I feel like I've grown a lot since my early 20s so I have to assume that I'll only get better with age. For my 30s I hope to improve my eating and exercise habits, travel more, buy my own home perhaps start a family (hey I've got 11 years here.....) but let's not talk about that yet. I still have one more year of my 20s left.

Happy early birthday to me

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday . I'm turning decrepit right before your very eyes.

I went out to celebrate last night with friends since Monday is not a good day for party times.

I forgot my camera at home so I give you crappy iphone photos instead.

I'm sure Derek will love that I posted this last picture.

I've discovered that I'm very good at squinting my eyes in photos.

When we got back to my apartment I was ready for bed but then I noticed it was a bit cold. Guess what guys? My heat isn't working again. I started crying because I cry when I get frustrated and also I was a bit intoxicated. Hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow. Us old ladies need our heat.

I shall leave you with a cat poem from my new cat poem book.
