More "mudane" matters

Thanks for all of the great posts yesterday. I like it when a thread stikes a chord with people. But today, a boring post about mundane matters. My garden is in turmoil. I left it alone for 3 days, and it nearly died. All my pepper plants got fried. My tomatoes did o.k. because they got a little water from the lawn sprinkler. The corn didn't mind. The string beans got stressed. I bought a small watering timer for my hose yesterday, so hopefully the garden can survive while I'm at AC. And now the hornworms have hit! I noticed my tomato plants started to get munched yesterday. Sure enough. I found 3 of the big green mo-fos. I took great pleasure in flinging them against the wall and watching them go *SPLAT* I'm going to have to resort to chemical warfare.

Sabot has been washed. I took my fursuit to the laundromat and it turned it excellent! Since it's 100 degrees here, it dried very quickly. I brushed it out, and it looks great! No FFS for AC! Speaking of which...I'll be heading out this Saturday, so don't expect too much new from me for awhile after tomorrow. I may log on at my sister's on Sunday. If I find a second, I may log on at AC. It would be cool to find an internet cafe in NYC and do another "live" remote.
*HUGS* to everyone! I'm in a good mood today.

Around the office

Had a most interesting morning around the office.
First, a ex co-worker who now works for a different agency stopped by for a meeting. It was the first time he had seen me with my collar. He asked what it signified. Without skipping a beat I said, "Oh! I'm a furry!" He just nodded and joked about putting a leash on me. I told him that was a little too B&D for me.

In our monthly division meeting I won the humorous "Most Outrageous Act of the Month" award for wearing my raccoon tail last week.

While going to lunch, my randy co-worker nearly wrecked the car rubber necking at some college babe. He exclaimed, "Whoa! Did you check her out!" I shrugged. He was in shock. "Dude! When I guy doesn't notice something like that, the only explanation is that he's been downloading way too much porn from the Net!" I grinned. Right! That's the ONLY explanation *rolls eyes*
The rumor mill was also cranking full bore at lunch. I just found out that my supervisor is leaving. On the one hand, I'm really not sorry she's going. It seems like she only had negative things to say to me. On the other hand, she's "family" so she may have let me get away with a lot of shit in the name of diversity. *shrugs* I just can't tell. I could end up with some Mormon who would think I am Hell's spawn for dressing up like an animal.
