Tell me something I NEED (or anything you think I should see/buy) from Amazon while I still have free 2-day shipping!
Starting the week out about 2 hours behind on work from last week, and then add another hour because I made it all the way to work without my laptop, I was feeling a bit dreadful.
Im so thankful for such sweet sentiments from Hubby.
My two female cats have been witnessed throwing up. With the amount of vomit I have been cleaning, I suspect my male cat has been as well. The only thing that has changed is I bought another bag of Purina One- Indoor Formula cat food. This is what we normally feed them, but since this last bag (bought about 1 week ago from Walmart), my cats have started throwing up. With the recent recall in the Purina Beneful brand for dogs, I would not be surprised if other formulas have been effected.
We have immediately stopped feeding them this formula now that I have figured out what is causing them to be ill and know it is more than one cat. They got some tuna this morning and are really perked up. I will be getting a different brand of food for them today.
Please repost for other pet families so they know there might be contamination in more than just the Beneful formula made by Purina!
What is Nerdy 9th, you ask? (We're pretending you asked. It makes it less awkward when I keep talking.)
The idea behind the Nerdy 9th is that we're setting aside one day of the month for completely unvarnished and unqualified love and enthusiasm for our nerdoms/geekdoms/fandoms.
From midnight to midnight, your local time, whenever you talk about geeky stuff online (or just on G+) you make a conscious effort to only share the positive stuff. When somebody else talks about stuff they love, you only share positive stuff with them too.
Why do we need a day for this, you ask? (Man, hypothetical reader, you are inquisitive!)
We need a day for this because, in my opinion, nerd culture is too invested in the things we don't like and in criticism than in the passions and loves that make us nerds in the first place. Critique is valuable! But it shouldn't be the only line of discussion we have. Once in a while (every 30 days, on average), it's good to just let ourselves be fans.
To love the things we love without reserve and to refrain from raining on anybody's parade when they talk about the things they love.
And that's Nerdy 9th. It's happening this Saturday, May 9th, 2015 and I'd love for all of you to join with me in celebrating our nerdy passions. Show us what you love. We'll do the same. We may even pick up new favorite things from one another!
Feel free to chime in on the 9th or even the 8th or 11th, if you don't post on weekends. The spirit counts more than the day. If you want to share this post and boost the signal, you can. If you'd like to tag your posts on the day with #nerdy9th , you can.
But the only real rule is this: No hate and no debate for 24 hours.
I hope to see your posts this Nerdy 9th!
Why Time Warner thinks for one second that it is ok to turn off ANYONE's internet (aka disrupting DNS services) that they PAY FOR, just for a "new promotional ad" is absolutely ridiculous and unprofessional, imo.
Note: I'm not sure if, at this time, clicking the continue button works. We did NOT have our client click on it until we called the support number we have for TWC (not the one on the page) and confirm they are actually responsible for this. And they did admit they ARE responsible for it and they cleared it from their end.
- The Purple GuysSystem Administrator, 2012 - present
I am also a wife and mother. I enjoy spending time with my family. I hold the title of Systems Administrator at The Purple Guys. I love Astronomy and Physics and hope to learn more of the field, even if just to be a groupie. I enjoy reading mysteries and sci-fi, as well as drawing manga, and doing creative writing/poetry/songs. I love music, and am slowly coming out of the closet for being a metal-head. I enjoy playing games such as World of Warcraft, I did beta for Rift, and even spent some time in Aion. I am currently aspiring to write a non-fiction book about something I am very passionate about in which I feel that awareness and change needs to happen. I will not go into more detail, but for anyone who is close to me, feel free to ask. Overall, I am a passionately creative, heavy-metal, nerd.
