all that you see that you wanted

I watched The Next Three Days three days ago, and I've been listening to the soundtrack ever since. It is awesome. It's Danny Elfman, but I had no idea it was Elfman, and I can always call Elfman. That's not to say anything bad about him, but there was just something extra fantastic about this score. Especially the songs by Moby. Phenomenal. It really elevated the film to a whole new level.


I do like Moby, though. I always feel weird saying that. But "Porcelain" and "Natural Blues" are amazing songs, and I stand by that.

I'm writing a blog, but I don't really have a lot to say. It's just been awhile since I updated.

My cat got fixed last week, so I'm obsessing over her incicion to make sure she'll live. She doesn't seem to care at all that she had an organ removed, but she does get incredibly irritated when I don't give her my undivided attention. And I'm not giving it to her now, so she's meowing at me. So I should go. Apparently.

  1. My cat had the same issue a couple weeks ago. Except he's a guy cat, so it did seem to hurt his feelings a little bit...

    And gotta love Elfman! Great stuff :)

  2. Always listen to the cat. Always.

    HRH Theodorable insists on my immediate attention. I am a well-trained slave. :)

  3. I actually don't think I've actually had a female cat get fixed before. I've mostly had male cats or when I got the cat, she was already fixed. So I'm a bit paranoid about Squeaks incision. But she seriously doesn't care at all.

  4. I just found out about your success. This is a tremendous confirmation of the potential of ebooks. However, I would add that there is no such thing as a vampire.

  5. Amanda, I've had cats my whole life and with two exceptions I've always had females. They are so amazing - their powers of recuperation are fantastic. Squeaks will be fine; it does pay to watch her (rather safe than sorry), but let her set the pace of her healing. From the sounds of it, she's well on the mend already!

    @BRIAN: No vampires? Naaaaah! Can't be! Next you'll tell me there's no Father Christmas...no Easter Bunny...but then who leaves all those yummy chocolate eggs??? ;)

  7. I used to be a Product Tester at a cat toy factory in Des moines, Iowa and I highly recommend a pink milk ring. Trust me, your cat will love it! That's why I got fired, for promoting free cat toys all the time.

  8. Amanda, I've only ever owned dogs (allergies) but my girl cat-dog was perfectly fine and awesome and had no problem at all. This totally did not prepare me for girl neurotic dog-dog, who got all crazy and ripped her stitches out and spilled guts all over the floor - but even *she* was fine after a second trip to the vet. As long as your cat is not a neurotic dog-cat I think it ought to go smoothly :)

  9. I was really worried when my cat got fixed too, but she was fine. I was especially concerned with keeping her from jumping up on stuff and biting her stitches, both of which she did (bad kitty), but in the end she was fine. She recovered great. Cats are pretty resilient. And yes, very needy.

  12. I hope your cat gets to feeling better soon. There's nothing like having a sick animal that you care about around to add worry to the mind. Ugh. You have sympathies.

  13. My puppy just got fixed a few days ago, and she is acting like a maniac! she isn't allowed to jump/do anything fun and that is all she wants to do! Its true, its like she doesn't even care that she has an incision that I am trying to keep from splitting open! Silly animals

  15. Th kitty will be fine- just be careful how you pick her up over the next few weeks. Don't be surprised if the hair doesn't grow back right away- sometimes it takes a while.

  16. The Next Three Days blew my mind. And yeah, I was surprised to see Danny Elfman's name on the score. It didn't "sound" like him. Great movie, though!

  17. Don't you know it's bad luck to ignore a cat? Go snuggle her already! I hope she's better soon so you can stop worrying about her.

  20. True story: My mother is a medical professional, she worked with a doctor who had two sons. These two sons were also doctors. In fact they were surgeons. They were sharing a house while they were junior surgeons - and they had a cat.
    Deciding they needed to get the cat fixed, and being arrogant young surgeons they decided that they could spay their cat themselves. After all, they're surgeons right? How hard can it be to desex a female cat?

    They sedate the cat and perform the surgery on her, removing the necessary girl parts. They then wait anxiously for her to recover from the anaesthetic (which she does) and they then watch her closely for a couple of weeks until she seems fully recovered.

    Six months later she gave birth to a healthy litter of kittens.

    The two young surgeons were too embarrassed to ever get their cat fixed and she lived a long and healthy life. They never worked out exactly what they removed, but the cat seemed fine without it.
