We celebrated the third anniversary of the "Twins" coming to live with us today. The boys had Fancy Feast Tuna, the wife and I had ice cream sundaes. Kinda bittersweet because that was also the day we had to put my female cat, Blue, down. Also bittersweet, because May 22 was the day my grandma passed away. I decided to write about her, but feel free to skip it.

Mrs. CB took my sweet Bruin to the vet yesterday for his annual check up and shots. When Bruin came home, Smokey, his snuggle-buddy, started growling at him. Why? Because Bruin smells like the vet and it was the ev01 vet that took his balls away. Poor Bruin. Maybe one of the other boys will give him a bath. And to think I didn't want kids ;)

My mom is coming to town for a seminar and we are going to try and meet her for dinner. I have been ordered by the wife to rest today, but damn I am bored. I guess I'll try and finish my book.

And can I just say, my back itches like crazy? omgleiktehfireof1000suns!!!11!1!1!

Have a good day.

While many people are celebrating Easter today, we at Casa Cabenson are celebrating the 3-yr anniversary of Mr. Bruin Thomas coming to live with us.

And I promised [livejournal.com profile] bast2 that I would get some pics of the boys up, so enjoy!

Tonight is the Indigo Girls concert. A band called Magnapop (Thanks Nic..I kept searching for Mangopops) is opening. The good thing: Mrs CB is Soooooo stoked about going. The bad thing: It's general admission and standing room...no seats. So after we stand in line outside the door for at least an hour,in what looks to be Noah's Flood-part 2, we have to stand the rest of the night. I have been told that I need to take my cane. I think my cane needs a name...any suggestions?

We went to do our part in supporting the economy today. I got the final season of X:WP and Mrs CB got a CD by Le Tigre. We went to a local Meh-hee-can place for lunch and after just one margarita, Mrs CB blurted out a surprise she was getting me for my birthday. Season passes! I hope my sister's kids come up this summer. We had so much fun taking them there a couple of years ago. Opening week is mid-May...I am really looking forward to spending time there.

And I was wondering if someone could tell me just when I became so old that I need a nap every damn afternoon?

And could someone tell my boy, Smokey(aka Pecker Smoker), that the mommies are on vaca and do not require a 4:30am wake up call?

Okay...off to find my official Central Ohio Dyke Social Event uniform.

It's 64 degrees here today and I am wearing shorts. And nothing else ;) I heard we are supposed to have flurries tomorrow, but I hope not. I have the windows open and the boys are going nuts. They love sitting in the windows and watching the birds divebomb the feeders.

Hope everyone had a great V-Day. While I was slaving over a hot stove for my favorite gal, I noticed two broken carnations sitting on the counter. Mrs. CB is the Junior class adviser and they sold V-Day carnations as a fund raiser and she was in charge of purchasing the flowers (thus the cat litter container full of flowers pic.)

"Those are for you," she said. "They were broken so I brought them home for you."

Gee....thanks? Mrs. CB- IG tix, CB- broken flora

Then after dinner she told me she had to go get more carnations because they had run out. I casually mentioned that if a box of chocolate didn't come home with her that I would change the locks.

Ah, the power of chocolate. One box of truffles (and the promise of a great dinner out and a flick), CB is a happy gal again.

In other news, the boys' eye infections are clearing up and I am starting to feel a little better. These antibiotics are killing my stomach though, which is impeding my consumption of Teh Red. But I have officially lost 32 pounds, so I am happy.

And my Bucks are still #2/3 in the nation. Only 12 more days...and a date with Penn State, til we hit tourny time.


ETA: We just found out that Mrs. CB's grandmother passed away. Rest in peace, G-Ma Loyal.

Good christ but I have been feeling poorly. After having a "bug" since before Christmas, I finally went to the doctor. In between telling my that at my "advancing age" (oh fuck off) I should be more concerned than I currently am with health maintenance and congratulating me on my weight loss, she took a peek at my nose and told me I have angry sinuses. So that headache that I had all of last week was actually my nasal cavities beating the shit out of each other. And the nose bleeds...yep, the maxillary sinus shanked the frontal sinus in a turf war. Good to know.

Then I go to the ghetto Kroger to get my meds and they don't have enough antibiotic. For fuck's sake, lay off ordering the goddamned viagra and stock up on your third-generation cephalosporins. It's fucking cold and flu season you assholes. See...

angry sinuses-antibiotics+additional trip to store on day off= pissed off CB


And now my sweet Bruin has the eye goop too. Treating that will be fun. He's a scratcher. And I have had Cat Scratch Disease (not Fever...that's a song) before and it is no fun.


And Lent starts tomorrow....fuck. I am too tired to think about what I want to give up, so I'm going with the old stand-by. I never have a problem with it.

For Lent this year I will be giving up men.

Well January is over and I didn't wind up in the hospital. I am going for some kinda record here. With one month down in 2005, I thought I would revisit my New Year's Resolutions and see how I was coming along. Not as good as I thought

Smokey and I are getting ready to make another run to the vet. He still has an eye infection, but luckily, none of the other cats have caught it. Poor little fat boy.

Oh and GO!BUCKS! #2 in the nation-the highest we have ever been ranked in Women's Basketball. Eat that Rene Portland! and I meant that in the nicest way

Mrs. CB and I went to the grocery this afternoon to get the shit we need for poker tomorrow night. I could not believe how crazy that place was. People- we are getting some snow. They are not calling for a blizzard. If they were, I'd have been raiding ABC liquor and hitting all my friends up for porn. But to be on the safe side, we did grab some extra wine and a 12-pack of Corona. And limes.

It looks like my city is trying to become little NYC. A Downtown News Station will surely propel us into that select group of cities that does not need the state added behind it. I can't wait to see some of the local yokels broadcasting like they are on the Today show. [/sarcasm]

My poor cat has kitty pink-eye. And he runs when he sees me coming for him because I am the "bad mama" that has to put the ointment in his eye.

Did I mention that there are some seriously fucked people on the internet?

Yeah, so you know your day is going to be a total suckfest when you open your car door and find all the stuff that is usually inside the armrest compartment sitting in the driver's seat. And the Red Bull Beanie Baby (cause I am a fiery Taurus) that usually sleeps beneath the stereo is thrown against the stick shift. Nothing was stolen. Apparently, the person who ransacked my car does not appreciate my taste for Broadway soundtracks and 80's compilations. Or they could not find my CD's mixed among the Poptart and Payday wrappers. See Mrs CB? Being a little messy is a good thing.

On the flip side of criminal activity, I bought a bootleg copy of a recent production and it arrived yesterday. It makes me feel kinda dirty, but it's okay. I like it.

It's snowing again. Another clipper. (I know [livejournal.com profile] theholyinnocent...electoral armageddon.) We are expecting another 4-6" as well as ice in Saturday. I hope it is shitty out that day. We are hosting poker and I really don't want to. However, if it's nice, I will be making chili and jalapeno cornbread. And margaritas.

Finally, my big guy, Smokey, has an eye infection. That's right folks, we have a pussy pussy in the house. When the wife gets home, we are taking him to the vet. Poor guy. And he is the only one in the house that is really watching the idiots on inagural parade. Nice to see W decided to go with the limo. Pussy!

Thank you LJ for losing power for almost 2 days...it gave me more time to sleep and get rid of this flu shit. Can I just say that feverdreams are like the most vivid hallucinations ever. I had one where Mrs. CB insisted that we depart Columbus and move back to my hometown...I woke up thinking I needed to find a new job and new excuses for not visiting my parents.

In other news... The #5 ranked OSU women beat the #4/7 ranked Rutgers basketball team today. These gals are heading for the top and I wish we could get time off for the Final Four. March Madness really does have two meanings for me...ah, Stephanie, my dear, I have not forgotten you. XXXOOO

And this is for all my pussy cat loving friends...

A Happy Pussy )

Well, it would appear that I have recovered from my late-night drinking/chatting session with [livejournal.com profile] aqua_blurr. I hate that Cabernets give me a small migraine. I was drinking Veramonte and it was smooth. Too smooth. And I ate all the chocolate as well. I really am getting to old to stay up past 11:00pm.

In other news, Mrs CB presented her thesis research paper today and grad school can officially kiss her ass. We celebrated by going to the mall where I did not yell at anyone. I did however glare menacingly at an assjerk who cut in front of me at Cheryl's Cookies. We'll be following this story as it continues to unfold.

I made a delicious dinner: Ginger Jerk Marinated Chicken, Asparagus and Rice Pilaf. Tomorrow, I am making home-made Loaded Baked Potato Soup. I'll be taking requests until Friday when Cabenson's Kick-Ass Chili will be making a special return visit.

I bought the cats an early Christmas Present. I found a pet sofa, about 2 feet long, and it even folds out. And it was CHEAP! The boys love it, as you can see

here )

Okay...now I am off to read over a story for a friend. And eat some creme brulee.

Ah the sweet, sweet sound of me clearing the pot when we're playing poker for real money. Mrs CB and I were invited to join a monthly poker club that includes another couple that we are friends with. There was food, booze, crying children (don't ask), cards, and politically incorrect humor. There were admissions as to the age virginities were lost (the winner, a 50-something woman, lost hers at 13- I was much more prudent), straight women being converted when I showed them exactly WHO Stephanie March and Mariska Hargitay were, and the ever favorite discussion of extracurricular "gimmes". (mine being, of course, Stephanie March) We had a blast, stayed up way past our usual 9:00pm bedtime (losers, we know) and the best part is..I was the big winner. I took home an extra $7.80 as well as the "Big Winner" prize. Yes, I rock. The next gathering is at our place so of course Mrs CB started her "Do-it-or-else" list the minute we got in the car. I offered to buy her new tennis shoes this morning...and that gets me a 24-hr reprieve from the list. Tomorrow, however, back to re-laying the bathroom floor...fun! (not)

Oh, and 3 out of the 5 cats vocalized their displeasure at us for coming home late and smelling of dogs. I got 5 hrs of sleep. Thank you, Bruin, Asher and Smokey...you adorable little fuckers!
