Writer's Block: What was the last thing that made you cry?

What was the last thing that made you cry?
Working in a vet clinic for 6 years, I see a lot of euthanasia. They're always sad, but most stop phasing you after a while. For the first time since my having to put my own pets to sleep, I started bawling during the euthanasia of a young cat named Danny. He was a stray tomcat who tested positive for FIV. The owners wouldn't keep a FIV+ cat in their multicat household, so they elected to euthanize. Their friend came to be present for the euthanasia and bring the cat home. I knew Danny for roughly 15 minutes, but when the vet started to inject the solution into the catheter, I started crying, I couldn't stop myself. How unfair it was to be given 5 minutes notice that you might be able to save this cat's life, but ultimately he was euthanized. Handsome, sweet Danny. I wish I had more time, maybe I could have done more.

Writer's Block: Cold turkey tremors

What is the longest, uninterrupted stretch you've stayed offline (without mobile access either)? How soon did you suffer withdrawal pains? Did you find it liberating?
i am about the experience this very soon, as i'm giving up internet and television for the month of march! considering the strong urge i feel to look up stuff, i anticipate it's going to be hard at first, but i'm hoping that i won't miss it once i get over not being "connected" anymore.

if you wish to track me at all during the month of march, please watch my blog or add my LJ feed to your friends list

this will be interesting >>;

Writer's Block: Going to Extremes

If you were in perfect shape (not to say that you aren't), what would be your extreme sport of choice?

SNOWBOARDING! i can't tell you enough how much i love snowboarding. it's the first sport that i'm excelling at, improving every season. not to mention my boyfriend boards, as well as a handful of friends, so i always have someone to go with.... this has made a huge difference. i also love the snowboarding style, board graphics, everything. i can't wait until the next winter season comes....

murphy needs a home :) - spread the word!

this is murphy, a stray kitten who has come into my possession temporarily. murphy is male, about 5-weeks old, and eats and poops on his own (thank god). he was with a litter of kittens in a backyard in piscataway but wasn't acting like the other kittens. my friend katelyn went to investigate and discovered a big healing bite wound on the kitten's neck. katelyn's mother is allergic to cats so she asked if i could keep him at my house. of course! we've dewormed him while waiting on his fecal analysis, and he is on antibiotics for his healing bite wound. we still need to test him for feline leukemia and feline aids, and the veterinarian recommended we wait until he's atleast 2 pounds before we start his vaccinations. he's a loud little bugger, but very sweet and gentle. if you think you'd be interested in keeping him, let me know! if you think you know someone who might be interested in him, direct them my way! murphy needs a home, and a new name, lol :) i'm located in central new jersey.
