completely and totally unmotivated

me = ready for a really long break with no resemblance of work

that break is just a few days away, so I'm trying (and not very well) to push through and get some good work in before friday which is officially break time. So right now I'm currently in the lab "working", waiting for my computer to catch up and do something.

what I really want to do is sit on the couch, eat cookies and watch Emma. And I'm totally going to do that, but it can't come soon enough!

Toilet training....for cats.

yes. its quite an adventure. I had heard that it was possible to toilet train cats, but had never really thought about doing it until I met The Litter Box.

Mr. Litter and I do not agree on many issues.

Number 1, Mr. Litter likes his space. His space inside our blue litter box AND he likes to spread it out all over the immediate area and apartment. I like to walk around in our apartment without shoes, since after all it is our home, but every time I go in the bathroom that dang litter sticks to my feet. yuck.

Number 2, Mr. Litter stinks. After all, our cat, Phelps, poops and pees on him.

Number 3, Mr. Litter does not clean up after himself. Despite spraying his business all around the box, the poo and pee remains for us to clean up.

So after sweeping large amounts of litter off the floor for the 50 billionth time, I decided time to toilet train. Here's a little intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I79-BnwbE_g

More to come...
