You're not going to believe this.

Well, I've got good news and bad news. (Hm... that sounds like a joke...) Bad news first:

I don't know what's going on here, but it looks like my car might have been keyed? Or at least scratched by something.

Sorry about all the reflection. *sigh* As far as I know, I haven't made any enemies. There's a girl at work who doesn't like me, but it's just because (as far as I know) I remind her of somebody she doesn't like. So I don't think she would go as far as to scratch my car.

I don't think it was there this morning, which means it would have happened at school or work. I'm really sad about it. It's just not worth it to have a new car! I'm not getting this fixed. My mom helped me with the deductible from the first problem and I'm not asking her again. Especially if this is going to be a trend. I'm sad.

Okay, now the good news:

Last term (my first term at school), I took Writing 121. For the final exam, they had us show up and they gave us a subject to write on, for example, we could write about if we thought people in extreme sports should be responsible for themselves or if other people should... OR... we could write about a moment in our lives that affected us greatly, where we would change something about it and the reasoning for changing that something. It's pretty broad, so there was a lot you could write about.

Well I didn't realize it, but they took any and all of the essays that scored a "perfect" and chose the best two. Those two people won $100 and I WAS ONE OF THEM!!! I won a hundred bucks for my essay! I guess I can get it put in the online arts ezine (online magazine?) too, but I'm not sure if I'll do it just yet.

Anyway, I was kind of proud of that. :D

Oh, I'm doing the low-carb thing right now... I'm hoping it will help me lose more weight. Right now I'm inching down by about 0.2 lbs per week. Grrrrrr.

Evil & Cats... (evil cats?)

After seeing my sister's post, I had to try it. I'm not sure how accurate these results are.

You Are 32% Evil

A bit of evil lurks in your heart, but you hide it well.
In some ways, you are the most dangerous kind of evil.

How could I be less evil than my sister??? Maybe I didn't understand some of the questions.... I should re-take this when it's, umm, that time. Then we'll see who's evil!!!

Speaking of evil, I have a new story involving my sweet, sweet kitties. I got up the other morning to see something odd. (It's going to start out weird, but keep reading...) On my sheet near the shoulder area, was a cluster of blood spots. I was puzzled. I didn't see anything on me that would cause that. I looked at my nose to see if I had a tiny bloody nose that would leave a cluster of spots. No. I thought maybe one of the cats hurt it's paw (they jump from the mattress to the top of the bed frame to sleep) and left blood... but it's where I sleep, not where they jump. It's quite a quandary.

And then I saw this a couple of days later:

If you can't see it, it appears to be little punctures. On my arm just below the shoulder, near the pit. Here's the weird thing: I don't remember being used as a launch pad. I don't remember pain, even though that's a location I would definitely feel it. And another thing, I've woken up before with long scratches, up to five inches long, on my back. What's going on?!?

You know, I came home this evening to hungry cats. Their bowls were practically empty. So I filled them up, much to the delight of my cats. But then I started thinking... Am I going to get scratched tonight?!? I joke about them scratching my eyes while I sleep, but is it really true?!?

Or am I sleep walking and somehow hurting myself? What? WHAT?!?
