In addition to having the following Irish traits passed down through my gene pool:
- An incessant urge to giggle during most waking hours, resulting in D-hall, various expulsions from official events and lots of belly aches.
- A love of parties
- An affinity for the written and spoken word
- An addiction to all things dairy
- A natural gift for the limerick
DOOM! You Irish readers know what I'm talking about. Those of you who are not - let me give you a quick version of Irish DOOM.
Someone is 5 minutes late and you think - they're dead.
7 minutes - they're not only dead, they were decapitated.
9 minutes - you're fairly certain their head was used as a soccer ball in some horrible zombie grudge match.
12 minutes - you can practically HEAR the zombies on your street.
It's just what we do. We are terrible worriers, with the added extraordinary flair for the dramatic story.
So, when I finally did get to catch some winks today while the beasts were sleeping, I would half wake every few minutes, CERTAIN that their silence meant that the poor little creatures lifeless bodies were strewn around the insanely large soft kennel I bought them for their recovery. (I can crawl in there with them it's so huge. Thank God it folds up. I've got ten pounds of cat in a 500 pound bag!!!)
I imagined them spontaneously dying of some rare spay complication, possibly involving the disappearance of their tails or ears, and so what do I do?
Get up, frantic, every ten seconds, go look at them, which, of course, wakes them up, and then I do crazy cat juggling for two hours and get nothing done.
I just did it again right now. I can't help it! WHAT IF THEY ARE DEAD IN THERE? SLEEPING LOOKS A LOT LIKE DEAD.
I'm gonna be worthless next week.
Anyway, here's a card that maybe will bring some peace!
It's my winter white... See that cool embossed flower? Yeah baby - that's the new Embosslits die that embosses and cuts at the same time. I love it so much.
The letters for thank you is also an SU! Sizzix die that I only had to run through once to get the letters I needed.
Everything is popped up on dimensionals. I think it's so pretty and simple.
Now I have to go see if my kitties are dead. :D I hope there isn't a zombie in there.
