Phones - aarrgghh... 

Since Christmas Eve my phone line has been on the fritz. Either it's been out all together or I've gotten a dial tone, but with lots of static and echos and crossover from other lines. The condition of the phone lines can be blamed on the storm that swept through L.A. on Christmas Eve and Christmas, and the phone company has been working to restore the affected lines in my neighborhood, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating. At least I've had FFDWG(FKaSarah)'s cell phone, and ModelGirl's internet connection, else I would feel completely disconnected from the world at large.

Maybe being so dependent on phones and internet connections isn't such a good thing after all.

In addition to the phone frustrations this morning I had to deal with a little present from one of ModelGirl's cats. See, the one that I have to medicate twice a day has, um, chronic constipation. That can be deadly if not medicated. Hence the twice a day visits.

Well, let's just say that the medicine is working. Far too well. Rather messily in two different places. And I had the good fortune to arrive this morning just in time to clean up the fruits of the medication's labors.

Man, this glamorous life never stops, does it?

At least FFDWG(FKaSarah)'s roommate comes home tonight. Their cat has been a delight to look after (as has ModelGirl's cats, actually - not counting the medication and clean-up), but it'll be nice not to have to drive an additional 10 miles to check on him.
