    • Guinea Pig Post-Op

      Warpek

      So as a follow-up to my last journal (and for the people who didn't get a play-by-play on Twitter), I took Grayson to the vet yesterday instead of doing it today. I realized that I had a huge nursing skill day/mock code today and wouldn't be able to make my appointment, so I called every vet's office in town to see if they had an opening. Luckily, there was a really lovely receptionist who actually asked the doctor if she could take us, and Grayson and I rushed off to the office as soon as we got the ok.

      Here we are waiting to get weighed (1.5lbs)
      BhcDjvKCAAAaBQZ.jpg

      The doctor came in and saw him, said he needed surgery, and rushed out of the check-up room. She came in about 10 seconds later to say that they could do the procedure to fix his broken tooth right then if I wanted to (if I didn't, I'd have to come back another day, which wouldn't be until Monday with my schedule). She ran down the cost, risks of anesthesia, and basics of the procedure to extract his tooth, I signed a paper, and she took Grayson to the back. I actually didn't realize that when she took him that was the last time I'd see him before the procedure to extract his tooth.

      After 30 or so minutes, the doctor came out and said that he was waking up. You know, I'll take this chance to say that I realize that this is a guinea pig. Most of you probably don't care so much about it, or think that I'm taking it too seriously, well, I am. I love that damn kid.

      Here's a picture of heavily sedated Grayson:
      BhcT5s2CAAEvBMS.jpg:large

      And here's a picture of the little pig burrito that I toted around the office while they got his meds/food together:
      BhcaVpECUAA-9Wf.jpg:large

      He got sent home with antibiotics, pain meds, and liquid food (which smells amazingly good!)

      For those of you who are afraid of guinea pigs or rodents (I know @WarpeksSis is), I'll just link where you can see a picture of his missing tooth. I absolutely forget that people aren't as interested in this stuff like I am. Sorry for any of you on Twitter who that picture scared or grossed out!

      All is well, he's feeling better, and Derrick is thankfully not bothering him at all. I mean, Derrick gets to eat all of the celery, carrots, and bell pepper without having to share, so the little fatty had better not complain! smiley4.gif

      As someone in the medical field, and perhaps just as someone labels herself as a somewhat caring person, I am overly empathetic to things in pain. When those things are my children guinea pigs, I can't help but feel even worse.

      So yesterday, as I was hanging out in RoosterSpeak, my guinea pig started screaming it's adorable, fluffy head off. There are a handful of people who can attest to this, but it sounded like a bird swallowed a high-pitched siren. As I turned around, Grayson was in a panic, trying to get his head out from between the bars of his cage. Despite how many treats, sticks, and chew toys I give him, he just loves nibbling at the metal. This time, the metal bit back. ...or rather, he just bit it wrong.

      Crying-Batman.gif

      After some calming down, I checked his teeth out, and it looked like his top gums were bleeding a bit. Some further investigating, his top right tooth is loose. Now, it's not entirely uncommon for guinea pigs to lose teeth, but it's not a normal occurrence. He's able to eat/drink a bit and doesn't seem to be in a lot of pain right now, but you can tell that his spirit is crushed. I have a vet appointment set up on Thursday because that's the soonest any vet could take us.

      It will sound incredibly dramatic, but Derrick and Grayson are basically my kids. I'm fully admitting that I adore my guinea pigs, and seeing one of them in a bad situation is really, really shitty. I feel so awful for the little guy. I mean, come on! Just look at the cute, walking toupe!

      BffqrnvCMAALY43.jpg

      On a more positive note, I find it really sweet that vet offices ask for both you and your pet's name when making appointments.

      Also on a funny note, the number of people online who mistake "lose" for "loose" is remarkable.

      Love and hugs,

      Hey there, Beautifuls!

      Does anyone have a version of the Rooster Teeth logo that can be blown up to 4 feet by 3 feet or so and still have a fairly good quality? I'm looking for a version of the logo that is the full rooster and teeth, but not the words "Rooster Teeth". I need it for a project that I'm working on and would really appreciate your help!

      Thanks!

    • NewlyFriend Game

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      Morning, Pumpkins! smiley0.gif

      So for the past week or so, I've been making questions, recruiting pairs, and pimping the shit out of a secret Rooster Speak Trivia/Game Night... Last night, the interested parties showed up to play a single-friendly version of the Newlywed Game which I titled the NewlyFriend Game smiley11.gif

      I have to say, for a game/trivia night where they went into it not knowing what to expect, the turnout was phenomenal! I can't tell the participants and spectators how much I appreciate the blind faith that you all had in me/the game. I think I speak for most (if not all), by saying that that event absolutely topped my Valentine's day.

      Here are the pairs we ended up with and the scores the guessed they'd get:
      Team Staples: @Laurin and @Newbs, 25
      Team Shadow Jose: @Eoin and @Lynxxon, 18
      Team Porkchop: @JayJustice and @Panacamanana, 14
      Team Kegel: @GoobertheGr8 and @Goobet, 12
      Team TubbySchnoz: @Sibwarra208 and @James, 17
      Team Pick C and You'll Pass: @GoldGuy81 and @Clumsey, 5
      And the teams who joined late:
      Team Saboose: @Schraver and @LttleCaboose, 4
      Team My Couch Pulls Out But I Don't: @Monica and @Erkan, 4

      Their guessed scores would be tie breakers in the event of a tie--the pair who most accurately estimated their final score would be deemed the winners.
      In the end, this didn't need to happen.

      For those interested, here were some of our questions:
      smiley9.gif What website does your partner frequent?
      smiley9.gif Do you think your partner has you added as a buddy on TeamSpeak?
      smiley9.gif If you asked your partner to cook you dinner one night, provided you were in the same place, what would they make?
      smiley9.gif What Rock Band instrument would your partner choose?
      smiley9.gif If you and your partner could travel to any country, which country would they take you to?
      smiley9.gif How many pairs of shoes does your partner own?
      smiley9.gif What's your partner's favorite pizza topping?
      smiley9.gif If you could sum up your partner in one youtube video, which one would it be? (this was my personal favorite)

      Here are the final scores:
      1st place: Team Kegel, 14 points (married and goin' strong!)
      2nd place:Team Staples, 13 points
      3rd place: Team TubbySchnoz, 12 points (best non-couple team!)
      4th place: Team Porkchop, 10 points
      5th place: Team Pick C and You'll Pass, 9 points (only met that day!)
      6th place: Team Shadow Jose, 8 points
      7th place: Team My Couch Pulls Out But I Don't, 6 points (started late, still did great!)
      8th place: Team Saboose, 4 points (correctly guessed their final score!)

      Congratulations to all of our teams and participants! You all did wonderfully, especially those of you who didn't know each other before yesterday!

      Thank you again to everyone involved! A very special thank you to @Noblesteed for being a fabulous score keeper.

      Love and hugs,
      smiley12.gif Warpek

    • I've Seen This Before...

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      So, since I talked about it a bit on Twitter/TeamSpeak, I thought that I'd tell the story here.

      So kids, this is the tale of the time I turned the same paper in to the same teacher.

      It was summer fall semester of '69 2009, and I was taking a General Psychology class. My teacher, who I'll refer to as Dr. Butts (you know, for maturity's sake), was very hyped up about this pet project that he had, according to him, created and been working on for years: Wellness Inventory for Student Effectiveness (WISE). It's basically a 100+ question personality test, you have to implement some lifestyle changes, and then write a paper. Let me tell you, for someone who wanted to do well in school, I actually kind of tried on that first go-around. I got 98%, an A in the class overall, and things were good. I mean, the project itself was a load of crap, but I learned something...?

      Fast forward to the next semester and I'm taking a course on Human Development. I was so excited. New year, new semester, all new classes full of things to learn... I hadn't paid attention to who was teaching my class, but damn it if I wasn't excited to meet who that was, too. You can imagine my surprise when Dr. Butts strolls into class and starts his monotonous lecture. "Ok," I tell myself, "his last class wasn't interesting, but most of it was based on the WISE project... I shouldn't have to do it again."

      I had to do it again.

      "No. I've already done this exact same thing, it took a long time to sort through the shotty instructions and even longer to do it..." And that's when the sly smile crept across my face.

      Fast forward again a few months and all of my classmates are freaking out about how to do this paper. I'm just like:

      relax.gif

      Mixed around a few numbers, changed a few words, changed the title/date, and a nearly identical paper with my name was handed in to the same teacher.

      I had a moment of panic when I wondered, "What if he thinks this is plagiarized? What if he thinks I cheated?" Which I answered with, "I didn't take someone else's work and claimed it as my own. I took my old work and claimed it as my own. It is my own. The worst Mr. Butts over there could do is claim that I didn't do the assignment."

      When I got the paper back, I had a moment of panic. The same moment of panic that kids get when they see red writing scrawled across the top of their paper.

      100% Would you mind if I used your paper as an example next semester?

      Nailed it.

    • Skirts-travaganza!

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      So I've gotten into this weird kick of making skirts... Here are a few I made two or so weeks ago:
      Galaxy Skirt:
      BeKrusCCUAAs21v.jpg
      Dino Skirt:
      BeKre5ACAAA_MA-.jpg

      And here are some that I made yesterday and Monday:
      Monster Skirt:
      zfaqlpH.jpg
      Marvel Skirt:
      ECfPRQo.jpg
      Horse Skirt (This one I made for my sister smiley12.gif ):
      WeTiC4o.jpg

      I have two ideas that I'm working on right now which is a custom skirt and a dress design. I'm not so sure about how the dress is going to work out, but the skirt should hopefully look cute.

      I'll let you know how that goes smiley0.gif

      Love and hugs,

      I tried to tell my dad "I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth" or "I won't bite the hand that feeds," and ended up telling him:

      I'm not going to bite the gift horse in the mouth

      Edit:
      And, of course, my mom thanked me for something and I tried to say "Yep, no problem"... I instead said "Nope, your problem" smiley4.gif

    • Netflix Suggestions

      5 years ago

      Warpek

      So I realized that during a shift at work I can manage watching approximately four to five movies, or fewer movies with TV show episodes interspersed between them. This weekend, I restarted and finished Once Upon A Time Season 1, half of the Attack on Titan episodes currently available, and am about to start American Psycho for funsies.

      For future reference, though...
      Do you have any recommendations?

      Are any of your favorite movies/shows currently streaming on Netflix? If so, which ones?

      post-30824-Jack-Nicholson-Creepy-Nodding
      ^ How creepy is THAT in the middle of my journal.

      My favorites that are currently streaming include:

      smiley9.gif Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
      smiley9.gif Spaceballs
      smiley9.gif Clue
      smiley9.gif Parks and Rec
      smiley9.gif New Girl
      smiley9.gif Doctor Who
      smiley9.gif How I Met Your Mother
      smiley9.gif Adventure Time
      smiley9.gif Archer
      smiley9.gif Emperor's New Groove
      smiley9.gif Cabin in the Woods

      I hiiiiighly suggest you watch the first three, at the very least, if you haven't seen them already.

      Anyway, hope all is going well for you!

      Love and hugs,
      smiley12.gif Warpek

      p.s. Sib, if you're reading this, I may need you to tell me the names of the shows we discussed again. The only ones I can remember are Lost, Awake, and... umm... Fringe...?

      I don't know what day and time you were thinking but here's the Alamo location I would recommend and you can figure out the rest. It's a little pricier but I'd suggest we do reserved seating just so we can make sure we 1) Have seats without having to wait and 2) Have seats next to each other.
