Lots of big news around here.

+ I am done in Philly! THANK THE LORD.
- Chicago is a complete and utter lie. I am not doing what they said I'd be doing, and in fact, it is not fun work at all and this is going to be a long and shitty six weeks. WHOOPEE.
- Jeeves is doing that circling thing again.
-- When we took Jeeves to the vet, they found out he was diabetic (new since the last time this happened) and won't give us steroids to fix his circling. We got insulin and a neuro consult. WHOOPEE.
-------------- WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK, DUDE MY AIR CONDITIONER SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME. I turned the light off and settled down to sleep, and there was this double tapping noise on the table next to me. Taptap. Taptap. Louder, softer, stuttering. I was like... okay, stuff is settling from the cold air? But IT KEPT GOING. For like, twenty minutes.

I tried to sleep, no dice. I could just picture a creepy little girl ghost fucking curled up next to the bed taptapping on my fucking table. I finally got up the courage to turn the light on, and the taptapping moved to the desk. And then the side of the bed. And then when I looked under the bed, back to the desk. WHAT THE FUCK, DUDE. SO FUCKING FREAKY.

Then the air conditioner turned off and so did the fucking noise. Thank fuck. Fuck, my mind is a scary fucking place.

Dammit, the fucking air conditioner turned back on again, and there's the fucking tapping noise. Goddammit.

That's all the news that's fit to print, hope my non-ghost story was fun for a laugh, and hiiiiiiii. Life sucks right now, sorry. :(

ETA: Actually - no it's not. There's less than a week to sign up for gishwhes. We're team velociraptor, and we are most definitely not being competitive about this thing, we're in it for the kicks and to get our feet wet. Next year, we'll be playing to win (ha, maybe) but this year, we're just in it to have a good time. So come join us? It's $18.87 to register, but it's supposed to be amazing and lifechanging, and whatever whatever. So.... join? We have six slots left. :D

I dunno if it's any comfort but my cat was diabetic for years and years and it wasn't the diabetes that got him, but cancer -- it can be very manageable.

if you don't have the stuff to do glucose checks regularly (you can use human diabetic gear, but it's also not always easy to get the samples/etc -- I tried, but it didn't work for us), you at least want your vet looking at not just a glucose curve for judging insulin dosages, but also the fructosamine figures. it gives a look at how things are doing over the past 2-3 weeks, basically.

i hope Jeeves is feeling better soon! <3

Laughing so hard because I do this too. But why did the sound move? Are you sure it was just the air conditioner? Maybe the little girl is messing with you.

*pets the kitty* Good luck with the insulin and the neuro consult. I hope it works out okay.

My heatpump is making a phantom ticking as well - very very faintly. I don't THINK it's a ghost...?

I saw that! I might have a friend who will join, but she's not really sure what she'd be able to contribute. I told her someone was thinking of just buying another entry just to make sure our gruop was full of laidback ppl, and so now she's considering it. (Bc if you did that we'd be down one person, so if she joined instead of you doing that it'd be pretty low pressure).

:P I'm hoping she'll decide to jump in, but I don't want to push.

Have you heard anything about this conference call you can get into if you call the gish help line (310-694-5844)? Apparently there's a ton of easter eggs hidden in there, and referrals to fake sites such as mishacollins.xxx. I haven't really explored it, but I've seen a few ppl on twitter go crazy and I'm just trying to figure it all out. :D

Man, I was really hoping you wouldn't have to deal with shitty work things for awhile. <3333333

Btw, my niece and her friend agreed to be on our team. I just sent them invites, so that's 2 more down.

When our room a/c taps, it's condensing extra moisture outside, something about how the cooling coils function is pulling humidity from the outside air and the condensation drains out the bottom outer corner of the unit (and it's supposed to, according to our repair guy.) It's just dripping onto whatever is underneath. When things are set up right, it's basically distilling water into a bucket for me! It does sound like tapping in a pretty regular (but not perfectly so) pattern.
