Bad news, good news

The bad news is that 130 flavors is not yet open for the season. We drove 25 minutes just to find that out. I don't know the real name of the place so I can't even call to find out when they open.

The good news is that I presented my poster at the Environmental and Health Sciences departmental symposium yesterday and my advisor (and an integral member of the department) wants to put it up at the school. Mind you, when these posters go up, they go up for a long time (years, actually) and she only picks the really good ones. I'm so freakin' excited I can't stand it!

Bragging done,

Well folks, your's truly has won the Environmental & Health Sciences Departmental Award for Biology at school.

Hub is taking me out to 130 flavors to celebrate! Woo hoo! I have to start thinking about which one I want to try tonight.

It's Party Time!

Hub and I are going to a party tonight with some friends. Should be fun. I'll have a full update later in the week.

1 sick, 2 sick, 3 sick kitty cats...

OK, 3 out of 4 of the cats are sick. Actually, Teba's starting to slip a bit, so make that "all 4 cats are sick. "

If you're ever super-bored, take 3 cats to the vet at once. Make sure one of them weighs 23lbs.

Our home-vet couldn't make it so we had to go to our alternate vet. Unfortunately, they don't do housecalls.

On the bright side, it didn't seem too serious. Condor, Grenidine, and Blaze all put up one heck of a fight when I try to give them their medication now, but so far I still have all of my limbs. I think I'm doing an OK job. I do, however, expect to be heavily scarred by the end of the 5 days.

Now on to more serious stuff. If everyone out there in blog-land could keep your fingers crossed that this really *is* nothing and my fur-babies are completely healthy, Hub and I would appreciate it.
