I'm not away. Just very, very busy and reading/posting less. The whole 2
jobs thing (I'm now working 8-10 hour shifts at job #2 at tarantulas.com and
actually picking up a bit of overtime at petco because we're remodeling),
the rescue reptiles thing keeping me hopping (current collection around 30
herps, not including the invertebrates, mammals, or fish), the kid living in
the house thing (read: surrogate parenting and babysitting)... plus I'm
planning some pretty major vacations and events in the next couple of months
(starting next week!) so getting all that together... plus I'm pursuing rock
and roll (singing with rock stars!) not to mention my ongoing tattooing
processes... I've also started piercing myself and stretching my piercings
more agressively (more time consumption) and of course I'm such an escapist
I have to be reading 3-4 novels at a time... I'm also writing a training
program for clientele of petco entitled "reptile husbandry 101"... I'm
creating a couple of pieces of art right now (one acrylic painting, one
digital image with my new motto "behind every successful woman lies a messy
house")... I'm well into construction mode on my 29 gallon viquarium with
river insert (which is taking a suprising quantity of time and probably
won't be ready for dendrobates for several more months), I'm treating one of
my cats for chronic yeast infections in her ears again (almost an hour a day
of ear servicing)... we're dogsitting 4 days a week which includes lots of
hiking... oh and I've been helping out here and there at a ferret shelter
here in town... she has 80 ferrets in her facility right now!!!!!! Plus of
course herp society stuff... I'm no longer the newsletter editor (phew!) but
still doing plenty of bugtesting for the updated www.pnhs.net functionality
(adoption animal and outreach listings and classifieds in the works), plus
doing the whole Adoption Chair thing answering tons of emails and phone
calls about incoming/outgoing rescues in the herp society...
Oh, and the only way I know to play this taxonomy game is 100% cheating...
google and/or textbooks. I don't have the memory capacity for memorization
of animals not in my collection!
Wow. I'm busy. What the heck am I doing sitting here in front of my
computer?!?!?! I have a tattoo appointment in 45 minutes!
P.S. in case I didn't mention already, I am very proud to report that the
petco I work at just won store of the year for our zone (over 200 stores)
for BEST ANIMAL MAINTENANCE... the most flattering part about this is it
coincides precisely with my one year anniversary with the company. :-)
