You're a Hyena!
You have quite a sense of humor, though many others find it derisive
rather than appealing. You are perceived as being a coward, but actually have moments
of great bravery and have even stood up to those much larger than yourself. You like
hanging out in groups and are always making a lot of noise. Disney thinks you are an

at the Blue Pyramid.
Heh. Amusingly accurate, for the most part. :-P
Finally back to my old routine at work. But MAN that place needed a DAMN good cleaning up! With two people covering for me while I was gone to the States, I'm a bit shocked that the place was in the condition it was in. The first thing my co-workers said to me when I walked in the door on Monday morning was, "THANK GOODNESS YOU'RE BACK!!!" Apparently very little chores actually got done while I was gone. Dishes weren't done, meds weren't refilled, GARBAGE wasn't taken out!! And I heard that one day someone completely forgot to clean out a cat's kennel and the poor thing didn't get any food or water all day (thank goodness someone noticed before they closed up for the night!). A good few nights they ended up staying an hour and a half past closing, just to finish vacuuming and moping the place! O.x
Feh... and my Manager once lectured me about my job not being that hard... *smirks* Sure, the work itself is simple, but it's the amount of responsibilities I have to take care of, and all in the limited amount of time I have to do it all in that makes my job crazy at times. Now that she KNOWS, she says I make it look a lot easier than it really is. What can I say? I'm dedicated to my job. ;) It just sucks that it takes me leaving for ten days for them to realize the importance of my position. -.- It's not always easy being Kennel Manager/Vet Assistant/Cleanup Crew! I make that place look damn spotless. *firm nods*
But now that I'm back into the work groove, I have to start getting back into the art groove, so that I can get to work on my AC batch of commissions. So far I've only got one badge done, (Wicked Sairah's Roscoe) and a few sketches. If I haven't e-mailed you back yet, and you got a commission from me at the con, don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you. I'm just getting myself organized. And for the folks who got the $20 cutout and laminated badges from me, yours will be getting done first, so expect some sketches from me by this coming week. :)
Also, I finally went out yesterday and got Zena a proper muzzle, since the new ban now demands I do it. I found out that apparently I'm not allowed to try and pass off a Halti for a muzzle... >.< SO, I had to drop $75 for one of those heavy duty chrome and leather cage muzzles. http://www.thecyberdogusa.com/mm10.html My dog now looks like Hannibal Lector. X.x But at least she's taking very well to having a piece of metal strapped onto her face. Much better than she took the Halti, actually! It was the last one they had in stock, too, so I totally lucked out, and it just happened to fit her perfectly. :} Plus she can still open her mouth easily to pant, and even drink water by dunking her muzzle into a big water bowl. So I guess, all in all, it's not so bad.
And on a final note, I'm rapidly discovering that I don't really seem to be ready for a serious relationship just yet. I wanted to see how Jay kitty and I would do... but I think I might have fallen into that a bit too quickly. Jay and I are very much a match in certain ways, but also very much opposite in others, and it seems that lately we've been discovering more clashes in the way we perceive things. :/ A rather touchy matter is based on our difference in opinions when it comes to spiritual beliefs (yes, that is a rather important part of what makes me who I am...) and my hopes that I could share my life with someone who at least understands and accepts it to be who I am, even if they don't necessarily share it. And as much as I love Jay to bits, there were a few problems that arose while I was on my visit to the U.S. (some my fault, and some his) that have made me realize that I still have quite a few issues to work out in my life first, before I can make room for a close, intimate life partner. The one thing I want the most in this lifetime is to find my other half, and settle into a loving, committed relationship. Just... I don't think I'm QUITE ready for it at this point in my life.
I AM glad, however, that we are able to agree on the fact that we do still care very much for each other, and that we still want to remain close. I'd still be happy to see Jay in October, when he visits again for his birthday, and I'd still be very glad to share a room with him at MFF like we planned, and an Artists Ally table. Hell, I'd still like to try to get a Dealer's Table to share with Jay for next year's AC. In my own humble opinion, why end any relationship on a bad note, if you can still salvage a friendship? It's not like my feelings for Jay have changed. I'm still happy to be close with him. :) I don't personally see it as a "break up," so much as maybe just redefining our terms together. It can still work, for the time being. And who knows, if things DO develop on their own, then great! If not, then at least a strong friendship is still there. I honestly believe that if something is meant to be, then it will happen on it's own. For now though, I'm happy to simply take things slowly again, and am just very grateful that I have so many special people in my life. ^^
