Ash “Girl From Mars”
I love that weird,over-saturated color effect. That’s the 90s in a nutshell.
This intrepid soul is Otis which is short for Oedipus, a name which I jokingly suggested to my girlfriend because of his injured paw. I didn’t really want to name him after a “literal motherfucker”, as Catfunk put it, but he did have a wounded foot so there you go.
He was hit by a car. His paw was hanging off his mangled leg. He hissed at a curious pit bull that passed by. He made an awkward three-legged attack at my girlfriend as she pulled him off the highway. He was understandably antisocial. The veterinarian detected an odor from the wound and recommended amputation. Her concern was that she had never put an animal so small under anesthesia and didn’t know if his tiny body could stand the strain.
My girlfriend had no doubt that he would pull through. He’s tough. That’s why I favor calling him Timex. He takes a licking and keeps on ticking. He’s in good spirits now. He purrs. He licks your fingertips. He’s still getting the hang of walking but he’ll adapt.

Happy birthday to the late, great, and foxy Elizabeth Montgomery.
I’ve scheduled my wisdom teeth extraction for next Friday. About ten years later than I should have according to the doctor. I made sure to set it for a day my girlfriend has to work all day. I do not want video of my drug-addled ramblings on facebook. She is looking forward to my anesthesia haze. I’m going to get my mom to take me home instead. I don’t think she knows how to use the camera on her iphone.
I am being a huge sissy about this. This medical procedure has everything I hate: no eating, pain, loss of control. It does have one thing I like. Drugs! To quote Fat Mike, “Drugs are good. They make you do things that you know you not should.”
