"I make a lot of poor financial decisions. None of them matter, in the long term. I will never not be poor, so what does it matter if I don’t pay a thing and a half this week instead of just one thing? It’s not like the sacrifice will result in improved circumstances; the thing holding me back isn’t that I blow five bucks at Wendy’s. It’s that now that I have proven that I am a Poor Person that is all that I am or ever will be. It is not worth it to me to live a bleak life devoid of small pleasures so that one day I can make a single large purchase. I will never have large pleasures to hold on to."

poor babies :(

Yeah there was this extremely brief moment when I contemplated walking away— and the voice in my head went “No" and I caught them, wrapped them in my jacket, cradled them in my arms and walked the 20 minutes back to work so I could find them a box and phone the kitty people.

My legacy challenge to date, further to this post— I’m about 4 generations in now. ;)

I got the secondary and tertiary colours I wanted really quickly so it’s a little harder to find mates but I’m managing. :D

I’m just hoping for some genes now.

So… long story short, I found some kittens.

To be a bit more precise, I found some very sick kittens on the trail near my work during my lunch hour, and like a SUCKER (ie: person who can’t resist a sick animal I am sorry) I caught the ones I could, took them back to my work, and called animal control.  I also let a charity that specifically rescues cats and kittens know— apparently the area is bad for feral cats.

I caught two of the three that I saw.  The animal control officer found a fourth, and said she’d try to find a way to get to the third who was behind some barriers and mewling like crazy.

It’s a high kill shelter, though, so hopefully the cat charity will be able to take any adult cats (the lady from the charity was p sure that the kittens— should they recover— were far more likely to be adopted out, since A) they’re beautiful, or will be/would be; and B) they are young enough to be socialised to humans.)

Pictures under the cut.  Nothing gory, but they’re pretty sick.

*hugs hugs hugs hugs hugs* I miss you, and hope you’re feeling better soon. <33333

Thank you so much!  I’m so sorry I’ve been so absent but my anxiety has blown up (with good reason, but I probably shouldn’t discuss it in a public forum).

Evidence: I usually get up at 5:30am.  Today and yesterday I woke up in a cold sweat at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep.  (Of course I am also sick but at this point it’s a chicken and egg debate for me.)

I’m going through a really rough patch and with the combination of social anxiety, regular anxiety, laziness, stress at work and now a cold, I’m not capable of much right now.

I’m so sorry for the long silence and social inactivity.  I miss you all.  I miss myself at the moment.

Erlina was sent to Denerim by Celene to make sure that Cailan and Anora never had children in order to destabilize their marriage and give her a way to seduce him. Originally, this meant drugs for Anora, but as Erlina (and Celene) learned more about Cailan’s proclivities, Cailan became the target. As the years passed and Erlina became more loyal to Anora, she convinced herself that it was as much for Anora’s benefit that Cailan didn’t sire any bastards as it was her Imperial order.

Legacy Challenge photo post!

My founder, hatched from a light egg (Fae gold/grey/sky) and her mate, bought on the AH (Pearlcatcher, sunshine/gold/spring).  Their 2-egg nest and hatchlings, and my heir inherited her father’s breed (and primary colour) but none of his genes.  (Not that I’m complaining!)

Aaaand her purchased-for-15kT mate, a white/white/sunshine Skydancer with a tert he’s unlikely to pass on but a girl can dream.

18 7 / 2014

So I had this really pretty Skydancer female with a smoke tertiary that wouldn’t sell (which is weird but totally my fault since I didn’t really do any more than put her on the AH) and today I decided that I think I will keep her and pair her with this first gen that I have.  I really like their colour ranges— of course there are some really weird results when I preview them but there are some stunning ones.  So we’ll see.

But there’s another thing!  She needs a name!  Suggestions are welcome!
