Anime and stuff

We haven't bought any anime in quite some time. I think that led us to somewhat splurge on it this weekend. We picked up Volume 1 of XXXholic by Clamp along with a Clamp double feature movie that features, "Tsubasa: The Princess in the Birdcage Kingdom," and "XXXholic: A Midsummer Night's Dream." We haven't watched either movie yet.

Also purchased: Volumes 1 and 2 of the laugh a minute, "The Wallflower." The hubby really gets a kick out of this anime series for some reason. lol At some point in time I'd like to pick up the Death Note series too. That's one I really enjoyed.

My computer is still acting up but I guess I shouldn't complain much since it's over 5 years old and hasn't given me too much trouble. I suppose it's time to start saving up for a new one. I'd like to get it with XP instead of Vista though. I think that's possible if we order it from Dell.

Did anyone turn off their lights for Earth Hour on Saturday? We turned off everything and then played cards by candlelight. I don't think they did a very good job of advertising for Earth Hour though since my daughter didn't know a thing about it until I mentioned it to her. That might explain why only 5% of electrical power was saved in Chicago during that hour. I thought it would be a lot more.

I think I'm finally getting the hang of giving my cat insulin shots. At least I'm not cringing when I do it anymore. And Thistle seems to have gotten used to the idea of getting stuck with a tiny needle two times a day. Thistle is also on a special diet. It's hard keeping her away from her brother's regular food.

It's a dreary, rather depressing kind of day thanks to all this rain. Where in hades is Spring???

Smoke free days: 76! *pats self on back*

Heeee heeee... I second that! Where in Hell is Spring! ,-)

Glad you're getting used to the insulin shots of the kitty. I can imagine it must be awful, to keep her on a special diet, with another cat in the house.

Hope your computer hands in longer.

Ahemmm, have you considered a Mac? Still can't get viruses and worms and the like, on a Mac. Have an iMac and lovvvvvvvvvvvvvve it!

No we don't own stock in the company. -giggles- We just love Mac! After being on a Pc for lots of year, too.

Diabetic kitty is tough, but you seem to be doing great with it. Really, the shots get easier with time.

Congratulations on your smoke-free success! Keep it up, Azzy!

As for spring.... hell if I know, but I'd like it to show up, too.
