In the course of my pets as an adult (4 ferrets 1 cat) ALL 4 ferrets required adrenal shots because they got adrenal disease. This was somewhere between a $35 - $40 shot/month. Not counting the cost to get the flexcar since I was in Seattle with no car. Sam requires fancy cat food. Honestly I just want one healthy not crazy pet.

Again I find myself needing new shoes. The problem I have is threefold. 1. I have fat feet and value comfort over cute, which means I usually buy relatively bland shoes. 2. I have a large heel spur on my right heel. Which impacts size of shoes and ability of shoes like slingbacks since they don't stay up on the back of my foot. 3. I'm cheap about the wrong things. I am ok with paying more for some shoes, but if I figure I won't wear them often or more than a year I don't see the point in paying a lot for them. I seem to have missed out on the shoe shopping gene.

So I have netflix and one of the reasons I wanted an xbox was so that I could watch movies instantly through netflix. This would be fine and dandy (and to be fair I've watched a lot of tv shows via netflix which I enjoy) except the movies that are released don't get to "watch instantly status for fucking ever. Black Swan, released in March - not on Watch Instantly. Love and Other Drugs - released March 1, not on Watch Instantly yet. Takers - released in January is being advertised as a "new Arrival." (I have no interest in Takers, I'm making a point) Are you freaking kidding me? I can walk up to Redbox and get I am Number 4 (which i want to see) and get it tonight (except that means putting on clothes and driving to the store see how lazy trumps self righteous indignation). AND they've changed their policy so that I can't even click on get the disk (to get it mailed to me) because they're trying to force us to use the "watch instantly" feature. I would if they had what I wanted to watch dammit!
Unrelated to Netflix, when I play my exercise game on xbox it just shows me as my shape but in red (heat sensor actually) and it cracked me up when the cat walked around my legs, as he is wont to do when I don't want him there, and the scanner picked up his shape.
What else was I going to be pissy about... oh I typed in www.blogger.com into my toolbar. This is a legitimate site that I've used a number of times (obviously) and yet somehow yahoo search decided I did something wrong and it came up as a search result. That also annoyed me.
Oh back on netflix... I hate how 99% of their "New arrivals: Movies" are not new arrivals at all. Well MAYBE they are movies that are newly released (and obviously not NEWLY released since one of their "new arrivals" is from January) on DVD. I want a list of real new releases not stupid shit like white chicks and dane cook and a bunch of movies nobody has ever heard of. This forces me to go to another website to see if I can actually find a list of new releases (strangely difficult actually thanks to televisionwithoutpity I can actually find a list because each week they do a blog about what's new on DVD) and then search for whatever movie I want to see. They're just pissing me off tonight.
