I tried to take Fable on a walk today, but he just REFUSED to put on the harness. Little brat, lol. First he acted like it was all a game (he does this when he sees the harness, because he likes being chased around). So he's all play-bowing and darting everywhere. Yeah, he's cute, but what a pain in the neck.

So there were some issues with my ant supplier so went about finding another. So I ordered a sample of black ants and they were junks, smell in a bad way like burnt and just ant pieces of bodies, they had obviously been processed for their acid and they were selling the trash, grr. I foolishly decided to try them for their red ants, I had a discussion with them and they assured me the red ants were not processed in any way other than sun dried.

Well, they are just pieces. They do smell a bit better and are softer but are still just pieces. I bought 10kg because it made a lot more sense at the price and their being a sale than just buying a sample 1kg. Aurora did snuggle around at them so will try her with them tonight and see if she eats them. I think she may have trouble still even if they do taste okay because I think she needs whole bodies so the kegs get snagged one her micro tongue hooks.

Alibaba does have some trade assurances and I have the correspondence where they promised it's unprocessed but if she can eat them I may just leave a bad review rather than mess with all that as I'm not sure what can be done. 75%+ of the cost is shipping.

Must have caught a stomach bug or something over the weekend and I woke up feeling like trash. Went to work anyway which feels like a mistake.

I paid for a live pass to a seminar for the next 2 days but my internet has gone to hell and after a call today there's nothing left to do but wait till they come and check the line Friday. On the plus side I did pay extra for the replays any time but they aren't available till next week.

Somehow I pulled a muscle in my leg in my sleep.

The weather is awful. I hate winter, I hope summer comes soon, haha. I want to go hiking and fishing, and Vega would love to go on walks.

Once the snow melts is when you have to do a major cleaning of your exotic pet's enclosure... Feces get frozen layer by layer if the snow falls intermittently, making it near impossible to get them out once it freezes. So you have to wait and leave them in the enclosure. Once the snow melts, however, you get all the feces that the snow has been hiding and collecting for you and suddenly your enclosure is a mess.

I feel this! Vega can't currently use his enclosure when it's cold (we plan on adding a heated indoor area though, sometime!) but after winter is over, everything is such a mess! A tree also fell on his enclosure and totally destroyed it so we ordered a new and improved one- a Lucky Dog Kennel. Same size.

Jake cat was on me getting pets and he put is butt in my face, as cats are bound to do, and it had a worm coming out of it, then he sat on got it on my pants, EEEEEW. I've had to change and start him on wormer. It went okay but the next couple doses may be harder now that he's on to me. He did forgive me right away but only because it's snowing and he couldn't flee outside.

Ewwww, worms. Emo has had worms I think twice.

My UPS package wasn't delivered to my house yesterday. The tracking says delivery was attempted and "customer was not in", but I was home all day. Then they didn't even leave a "sorry we missed you" slip so hopefully I can go down to the pickup location and get my package without it. Ugh. The pickup location is in a bad part of town and I hate having to drive over there. Last time I was there, a guy who was clearly on drugs was in front of me in line buying cigarettes and he was being incredibly rude to the cashier. But then he left his card in the card reader and walked out of the store (the cashier called to him but he totally ignored the cashier), so that's karma I guess lol.

On top of that, called the non-emergency police line last night because I heard gunshots, then a few minutes later had cops pounding on my front door. They wanted a statement from me and a bunch of other neighbors that heard it. They've never done that before whenever I've called about it. Weird. I still have a headache from the sudden stress of the cops pounding on the door...

Okay, actual frustration this time. Someone posted how they didn't think horses should be ridden or pull carts. Most of her friends all agreed and it turned into a discussion how animals should never be used for anything. One was even proud their families horse was in a paddock and never ridden and allowed to run "free" Um, no, it's in a paddock that's not free. It's alone and doesn't get to ever get out for enrichment that a ride would give it. And you probably only visit it when you feed it. That horse is surely lonely and depressed.

So anyway I quietly unfriended that person. Being vegan is one thing, being an extreme vegan that wants total human animal separation is another and not acceptable.

Totally forgot about road conditions and made Ikigai an appointment for his check up today for next week, doh. Still 2-3 work places and flaggers with 10-20 minute waits(so have to leave an hour early in case the usually hour long drive is 2 hours), hillsides still unstable and rain coming down. Welp, canceling that. Guess he and Beaker will wait till next month at least.
