| Rat Funeral.......Either Today/Tomorrow 2004-02-03 14:29:18 ET
I have a grim task staring me in the face this week.
You know how it's been snowing like mad all this time up here in Jersey?
Do you also recall an entry that I wrote some time ago about my rat Laila dying?
Well, you can't bury anything in the frozen ground.
So, when I was away for the weekend, and my rodent had made the decision to leave this mortal coil, my mom just put the entire tank outside out by the garbage....
SIDE NOTE : I FOUND IT VERY DISRESPECTFUL..COULD HAVE AT LEAST PUT HER IN THE GARDEN BUT ALAS THERE IS NO ARGUMENT WITH MY FAMILY.
I always bring up the dead baby thing, which infuriates her..but it's pretty much how I feel..since I don't plan on breeding(EVER) and my animals are my children.
Moving on..from the fact how much leaving my damn rat out by the garbage pissed me off..
Now..that it is raining and I do believe that rain thaws the snow..
The decaying process is about to kick in..
So, I will have to find a way to do something about the little rat corpse.
Rat #1 I put in a little Lindt chocolate box and left her in Hollywood Cemetery, since there wasn't really anywhere that I could dig and physical hole.
Rat #2 (Ariel) I believe is buried in my mother's vegetable garden.
Rat #3 I plan on throwing into a body ov water.She's NOT going in a dumpster, although that is filled with dead animals I'm sure.I'll let her return to the Earth.I think it's the best way to go. Plus, it's fucking foul out, so I don't plan on venturing into the back yard in the dark digging holes in the mud, destroying everything in my path. So, I think Operation :Water Grave will pan out much better.
I don't want to do this alone, so I'll probably volunteer the boyfriend as usual..if anyone else wants to join in on the fun (Note the heavy sarcasm) you can holla at me.
I hope she isn't half decayed by now.
This will be a big aid to my diet, because I doubt that I will want to eat EVER again after that.
Goddamn house rodents and their short life spans.
Let's just chalk it up to yet another "interesting experience" in my book.The rat has been dead for I'd like to say 3+ weeks now. So, once again...an "experience" this will be.I mean..it's not my fault. This isn't the X-men and I'm not Storm, so controlling the weather isn't on my Resume.I feel like ass about not being to do something earlier, but I feel that the water thing will be a respectful way to let go ov a beloved pet. I'm hoping that she will be a Viking rattie in Valhala :)
Or maybe a zombie rat that attacks homeless people. She was my first rat, so I do have high hopes for her in the afterlife.

Welcome home. You're SO Jersey. You know Wildwood
and Seaside are the most disgusting places on
earth, and only good for drunken after prom
vacations, you know there's always a
"short-cut" to someplace. Isn't
Jersey great? I mean, where else can you go 80
MPH and STILL be the slowest car on the road?
How JERSEY are you?

| Laila the Ratt is no more! 2004-01-15 11:54:05 ET
Blah..so a few days ago (2 days ago to be precise), my remaining rat Laila has died. First Ariel died this past July(as she was an older ratty than Laila), and now Laila died this year. They were both about 2 years old. Now..I know that rats only live somewhere between 2 and 5 years, and that smaller animals in general have a short life span, but it still sucks. Isn't there like a way to make household rodents immortal? |
She was sick though. She had trouble eating and moving and it looked like she was paralyzed for some time. I don't mean to be cruel, but to an extent dying was actually better for her. After all, she looked so uncomfortable and in pain, that I think death was almost a much needed rest. I don't work anymore, and my mother didn't exactly want to give me money to take the rats to the vet. even though it has always looked as if she liked the rats. She certainly never did hate them. But when I asked her nicely to help my rat out she said ," Well you shouldn't have bought people Christmas presents, and taken your rat to the vet. Since it was YOUR rat". That was AFTER I had bought everyone their gifts already anyway. It's still pretty fucked up.
It really sucked to see her in pain for a few weeks.
I mean the cat gets to go to the vet, so why shouldn't the rats?
Just because they cost between $6 and $10 dollars, it doesn't mean that their lives are any less valuable. Christ!
Last time I tried some home therapy on a rat and had given her diluted antibiotics, it didn't end well at all. I felt like a murderer, so no more rattie home treatments from me.
I'm not sure where she is buried, because the ground was frozen lately due to all the cold. All I know is that when I came back from Lenny's one night, and was waiting for Ray to come and get me so we can grab some coffee she was gone. And then my mom had told me that she's dead, when I questioned her about my rat.
If I can't deal too well with the death ov a rat, imagine how much I'd flip if the kitty died. Or my mom *gasps in horror*. Or a friend. I don't even want to think about that.
| Bukkake , Necros and Football..OH MY!!!!!!!! 2004-01-11 20:19:45 ET
* X-POSTED FROM LIVE JOURNAL WORD FOR WORD BECAUSE I AM LAZY*|
I just came back from my 2nd viewing ov LotR:Return of the King. Superb..just like the first time I had seen it.
This weekend was interesting. I saw a large variety of different movies. IN sequential order.
1- Horrible softcore pr0n at the Fangoria convention I went to Friday.
2- Necro porn complete with real rabbit evisceration and thankfully fake cat evisceration called "Nekromantik". Yes, it *WAS* German.The lead corpse fucking actress was named Beatrice M. . Christ..what are the odds?
3- American Bukkake 12. Now..I compare everything to bukkake. It snowed slightly tonight, so I am blaming it on somebody bukkake-ing the streets.
4- Football. It was at T.G.I.F Friday's getting fat, and it had all these people around the bar going nuts for the Packers and the Eagles.It was very interesting to watch sports fans. People watching is amusing. Especially,crazed football fans.
5- Elf goodness tonight!!!!!!
So, my weekends was filled with liquor in my tummy and watching an ultra bizarre combination of various flicks.
I feel like my testosterone levels are sky high after all that football and bukkake. Get me a beer, bitch!
