Graduation Presents and Moving Woes

I'm still getting a few straggler graduation presents, which is cool. About a week or two ago, the lovely Dayment sent me a ha-ha funny graduation gift.


Yes, it's Bounce fabric softener! So, the A-Hole Thief (whoever s/he is) can steal from somebody else - I'm keeping this in my apartment!

And yesterday I got this awesome Cuisinart from my biological father, Scott. Thank you so much! I will definitely put this baby to use!

Yesterday was a bad day for me. I had a phone interview for a job on Monday and found out yesterday that I didn't get it. Honestly, I wasn't upset about it because I realized that it was under my abilities and I would be quickly bored with it, but still! I hate rejection! This was only compounded by the fact that I had a great 15 minute conversation with a landlord of a decent-sized apartment in Nashville that had all the amenities we're looking for (2 bedrooms, over 1,000 square feet, a dining room, hardwood floors, a dishwasher, and cats allowed), which got me all excited about it, but in the time it took for me to call Huz about it, he rented it to somebody else. Fuck!!! I lost hope yesterday and felt like worthless crap that nobody wants. Ugh. I hope something works out soon - we only have a month before we have to move there!

In other news, do you know that Cambridge has a sweet tooth? Now I know I'm not her biological mother or anything (being of a different species and all), but she somehow inherited this trait from me! If I'm eating an apple, she will pretty much demand some, so I bite off small chunks without the skin for her and she eats them up in a flash. She also likes bananas of all things and, I found out yesterday, grapes and maple syrup. She also loves carbs (like her Mom) and eats white rice and mashed potatoes. Now, don't freak out on me, I don't feed her people food in vast quantities, more like 1-2 tiny bites. But it's funny, isn't it? What does your pet like to eat?
