Well it has been an uneventful week….that is if we were to leave out the fact that I had been read the riot act, in a gentle form by Valerie, the nutrionist. Yes, she is a member of the ‘gang of five that is keeping me alive’.
Basically we are now working on a new diet. I know, yes it has been said before…but this time the overhaul had to do with an eye or several eyes to getting the blood sugar numbers down, the creatinine down [again see previous posts] and most importantly to drop the lbs. If it sounds like I am obsessing on that last point, that is not the case. However I also would like to be a little more active than some who I have encountered on the bus or LRT who for some reason have all the mobility of a pregnant snail yet complain about health issues. I know, it seems to be a bit insane and what is even worse is that there are those who see this as some type of cultural prerogative. And that with all of the data about what can happen when there is a little too much pressure on the heart, bones, liver, kidneys, etc. C’est La vie….
As for the title of this post, it does have something to do with a present, granted a little late for Christmas but it was promised to Rae and Marty…the kitty condo arrived today! Just as Petco said it would, which is a major plus, if only due to the fact that this really scored points with the furry patrol. It is also one which is a little better looking and play friendly than the last, plus Marty now has a little hideaway on the bottom which accounts for those lovely little beady eyes peering out in this pic. However, with all that has happened over the past few years….such as the fact that these little ones keep me on the straight and narrow…as well as insure those letter go out to my crush…or else….I needed to do something to really spoil them. OK moreso than in the past.
Speaking of the crush and that menu that was mentioned a couple posts back, as luck would have it, the romantic music end of the menu is being expanded c/o yours truly’s account over at Ebay. While there are some who see that service as being a curse, an enticing seductress in megabyte form…for me it is actually a godsend. There are some products that I have been able to purchase through same which are ‘extinct’ or hard to find in the US…and in the case of music…things that would really and do fill the vacancies in the library. [For example, the CD version of Ren’s ‘Time-Line’ which is in some corners acknowledged to be a rather….uh…uh…well let’s say ‘different’ to be kind. As a fan yes it helps to even have those in the collection which are clunkers]
So that is the news for now..hopefully for the next post there will be some more pics with progress in the diet. That or more of Chez RoyalBadness [yes the condo already has several nicknames] with the cats…Til then…from the land of the colortini……enjoy the post as the words and the pics fly through the air.
