I’ll Miss You Tika

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on November 7, 2010 by Tabathine

My dear friend and companion and an important part of our family, Tika Pooh, passed away today. He was with us for 12 years almost to the day, as it was November 2, 1998 that he joined my family. He was there for me during thick and thin, and was my lifeline even when he was hundreds of miles away and I needed someone to ground me to home. He was my muse. He was happy and loved life, up until they day he died, which thankfully was in his sleep and without pain. I will miss him dearly.

Tika Pooh I love you

Please don’t break my heart in two

that because I know

That you are Tika Pooh-ti-pooh

The Day That Was Terribad, But Really Not Too Too Bad

Posted in Rants, WoW with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2010 by Tabathine

Yesterday was patch Tuesday. You can read how that went in my post below. Today is Wednesday the 13th, which I think is somehow related to Friday the 13th, because is was a day full of mishaps. To start off: I woke up and put on the wrong things to wear that day. I dressed warm: jeans,long sleeved shirt, long black trench coat jacket type thing, and for good measure I threw a pair of fuzzy socks into my park bag. Just FYI, on days I don’t work, I spend a good portion of my time at the park for the benefit of my dog, who is forced to stay indoors on the days I do work. I live in a basement, with no windows leading to the true outdoors, and there for had no way of knowing that it was bright, sunny, and really really hot. I have simply convinced myself that it is winter and therefor it will be cold, dammit.

My dog also decided that he wanted to leave me a effyouforsleepinginuntilnoon present: a poo on the carpet. TY for that dear Luna. Luna was delayed further from his park by my forgetting my sarong, which I MUST have to lay on in the grass. That gave me the opportunity to get rid of the jacket. But along with my slight backtrack came my co-workers plee that I watch the store for 20 min while she goes to pick up her sick daughter from school (another FYI: where I live is in the basement of where I work. Great commute? Hell yeah. Possible pain in the ass? Hell yeah again) I couln’t say no, I mean really, I was off to the park, not some urgent appointment.

So it wasn’t until 1ish that I finally made my way to the park, stopping on my way to pick up my breakfast: Hawaii’s best cream puff (the island, not the state, as Komodo’s has damn good creme puffs too). Ok, so this was not terribad. Sunny day, yummy creme puff, great book. Actually pretty good. Then Luna has to go and get himself missing. Continue reading
