I am so FUCKING ready for this weekend, I can't even begin to tell you.

In short, the past three weeks have sucked donkey. Big time. Most of the suckage has had to do with work. But the remainder of the suckage has had to do with the whole Earl dying thing. And then, if that weren't enough suckage, it has been compounded by the extreme money hemorrhaging that's been going on between wedding preparations and the whole sick/dying cat fiasco.

But, on the bright side, the weather if freakin' amazing, I'm taking tomorrow and Monday off, and I discovered this never-before-posted video of Earl on my hard drive today:

And also, I went and treated myself to a brand new 120 GB iPod classic today. Yes, I'm poor, but like any good American, I've still got credit. Whoot!!

The reason I'm taking a long weekend this weekend is because a) I TOTALLY deserve it after how hard I've been working lately and b) it's my weekend-long bachelorette shindig!! That's right--my awesome friends (most of whom are featured in the blogroll over on the right) have rented a big ass house out at the lake for the ENTIRE weekend so that we can chill, imbibe, laugh, and relax. God, I need it.

So the next time you hear from me, I'll probably be moaning about how worn out I am from the weekend. But I'm sure it will be absolutely worth it.

I'm not a cat person. But Earl's video made my cry. What a funny cat. And his purr was precious.

I hope someday you find another cat with his spirit.

(I'm STILL blubbering. And I'm at work!)

I love sheet monster. (that is what we call it at my house) I also love how he thinks you want to play. He was a good kitty.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I can't wait to hear/read about the party.

That video is fantastic. What a great purr! It must have seemed like a big ol' giant soft bag to play in to good ol' Earl. He was a really great cat Marla. I hope you had a great weekend! Lord knows you totally deserve it.
