well.....the drumsticks are the same frozen ones I buy regularly at the local co-op so that was a HUGE let down; the seitan burger completely fell apart after the first bite. Just crumbled to bits in one big sloppy mess. I have never seen seitan behave that way before.
and to top it all off, soon after finishing dinner and going to see New Order, I started to sweat like mo'fo, thought I was going to pass out and vomit. While I was at the show. I tried go keep it together because, you know, it's New Order, and I had traveled several hours to get to that damn show and I did not want to miss it. But I was so sick and needed to bail.
it was def the food. I was perfectly fine before - not fine after.
FAIL

I have to say, I was disappointed with Foodswings. It was a long way to go for a burnt corn dog and rather dull disco fries, especially since I passed a place where I could've had vegan pizza.
Yikes! This is making me feel less bad that I didn't make time to go there on my two recent trips to NY!


After eating at Foodswing my husband came down with intense stomach cramps, sweating and flu like symptoms. He had to stay in bed at the hotel for the whole three days we were meant to be exploring NYC, he didn't get his appetite back for over a week and we had to check into a different (expensive!) NYC hotel for one night because he was too unwell to drive upstate. I was fine but we ate totally different things, in fact he had a seitan sandwich & I had no seitan.

the last time i went to foodswings, they gave me a boca burger, and it wasn't even hot. i swear the first time i had a burger there it was amazing, but maybe i just didn't know how good food could be yet. the one thing i really loved on their menu was the cheesesteak, but i'm afraid to go back for it now, because maybe it's terrible.

I ate there last night too and I'm sick today. I don't think it was the food though - I have a sore throat and fever. Which made me cancel two sets of plans I had which really sucked.

So far today I got scratched by a cat trying to medicate her. Then the same cat knocked my phone on the floor and broke her speaker so I can't use the phone part. Two of the little kittens are really sick and need to go to the vet. I'm also receiving three new cats and since my phone is broken, can't do anything else until they arrive because I have to be at a landline. And it's only quarter after eleven.

At least I'm not so sick today.

Know how celebrities get hospitalized for "exhaustion" and people scoff because... "Exhaustion". Go get some sleep you over paid wimp.

Well, guess who spent the afternoon at the hospital after nearly passing out at work? Afterwards I lost feeling in my hands and my throat started feeling closed in and my heart rate was all out of whack. Add that to the rash I woke up with a few days ago all over my torso, and you've got the full gamut of stress response gimmicks my body is pulling on me.

Dad is supposed to be having surgery today because he has fractured his shoulder. Which means peeling myself out of bed and going back to yet another hospital. I also need to make time to bike ride with Tungsten because he's so pent up and under stimulated because I've been in and out of work and hospitals all week.

I feel like a terrible dog mom for not walking them, a terrible daughter for not wanting to go to the hospital today and a terrible grand daughter as I've not been out to visit them and help in a couple weeks.

Oh, and dad's girlfriend emailed me to let me know how badly she is dealing with things and she needs him to move in with us sooner than later. Which isn't reasonably doable until the beginning of September when one of my jobs ends.

feeling totally empty.

lost another kitten today. two in two weeks. this one was particularly heartbreaking. he had a *really* good last couple of days, and today I'd given him a quick bath (he's too young to really groom properly) and cleaned the little top he wore to keep warm. he was ready to face the world! but in the space of a couple of hours he went downhill rapidly.

he spent most of his time sitting on my modem/router (it's warm!). he started calling out, laying next to it. I tried to stand him up and he just collapsed down. that was the instant my heart snapped.

I wrapped him up in heat packs and tried to get him some sugars/liquids here. the vets got him stable enough, but his body was shutting down and there wasn't anything anybody could do. (the other known kitten from his litter is having the same problem elsewhere, so it's not something that could have been helped since being here). he went out with dignity, peacefully.

I'm gonna miss that little forker so much. he was only here for a week, and had an uphill battle from the start, but he showed *such* good progress and was so happy for the last two days. I'm so sad.

sleep well, little Rooster. I hope you have found peace.

I'm at the ER vet again with the same kitten I brought in Tuesday night. I'm pretty sure he's dying. He went into hypoglycemic shock earlier today at regular vet. They released him because they have no overnight care. I woke up at 2 to check on him and he was non responsive, even after I gave him sugar syrup.

Eta- he didn't make it.

Sad night for kittens.

I can't believe Teo died. I knew it was likely since the vet was worried he'd crash again but I hoped he'd be okay. When I checked him at 1 he was okay but weak. Then at two he was just out, lying on his side and his head was floppy. I rushed him to the ER in a little bed folded over him to keep him warm because he was cold.

The shock had worn off and I'm just so heartbroken.

I'm so sorry, you guys. You are both such lovely people with warm hearts and I know that those kittens had it good until the end. You did all you could.

I'm so sorry for your losses, joshua and blondiefk. These kittens were fortunate to have such caring people like you to nurture them.

Yesterday I found out that due to a miscommunication from a manager, I'll have to wait one more week before the first payday after my place of employment reopened. It'll have been 7 weeks since my last paycheck. It's mostly an inconvenience since I live with my parents for the summer (although I do spend a lot of money on gas to get to work), but I'm upset that this information wasn't given to us sooner.

Oh, and I also found out that the Veggie Festival I had planned to go to today was merged with a music/entertainment festival and moved to next weekend. And the event planners didn't think to advertise the change. *sigh*

My dad had to put his little beagle to sleep today. She got out and was hit by a car. She was such a good little girl. Very spunky, but also very happy and loving. The very worst part was hearing my dad cry. I've never heard him cry before.

I dropped my iPad and cracked the screen badly. I don't have a computer at home so I don't know what I'm going to do with myself. Maybe I'll have to get a hobby outside of the Internet.

Pretty trivial but; I had a gift certificate to my favorite food cart, and I got my most favorite sandwich in the world with it. Drove all the way home with it and then saw it had egg on it. It comes with egg normally, I completely forgot to ask for it off. I have got it so many times now that it just doesn't feel like it would ever come any other way than how I get it. Ah I was so looking forward to it.
