My poor little Benny has something wrong with his mouth. I sent a frantic email last night to Robyn as well as some family members asking if they'd ever heard of a cat having an abcess, and attached this picture:

the other day when touched his cheek on that side he yelped, which is unlike him. I didn't see anything wrong; though perhaps I didn't look well enough. Last night when he jerked away when I softly touched his cheek I lifted the cheek up and saw a big reddish pink bubble above his fang. Robyn emailed me back and said that is normal and common for cats to get abcesses. I had called the vet already, and he's got an appt today even thought the bubble is gone and he doesn't seem bothered when I touch his cheek. It's still red, and though he was eating fine I am not taking any chances.

Ok, now onto stuff I need help with...

I am trying to find a cool song for the church to play after Aaron and I are announced as Man and Wife... We went to a wedding a few weeks ago and they played 'signed sealed and delivered'. My mom is insistant on having us have that song, but I want something different. If we weren't getting married in a church I would totally play either Georgia Satellite's - Keep Your Hands To Yourself or Billy Idol's - White Wedding. Buuuut since we ARE in a church I am thinking of the following:

Eight Days a Week - Beatles
When I'm 64 - Beatles
Islands in the Stream - Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers
Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Diana Ross and that guy...Marvin Gaye maybe?
(though the lyrics aren't totally us.. he never set me free, HOWEVER there ain't no mountain high enough, aint no valley low enough, and ain't no river high enough to keep me from gettin' to him baby. heh.)

Point is none of these totally grab me, though if I had to say it would totally be between eight days a week and Ain't no mountain high enough and Islands in the Stream... Do you see why I need help? INDECISIVE!

Any ideas you might have would be MUCH APPRECIATED!

So, this weekend... not too much going on. Tonight I plan on making a ton of snickerdoodles. Both the regular kind, and the whole wheat kind. (The whole wheat kind are only 1 pt each on WW!) Thanks to All Recipes for the recipes. (That was redundant.) We'll probably hit Walmart tonight as well.

Saturday is the one year mark of when Aaron proposed to me, so we'll celebrate the past year of wedding madness by using the movie giftcard we got at my shower, (I'm pulling for Garden State but it looks grim.) and I'm going to make a special dinner with the crab legs sitting in our freezer. I assume I just boil them? I'll have to ask my mom how she would cook them. We'll go finalize the details of our wedding cake and then hopefully pick up a crinoline and flower petals from a knottie I've been emailing with. I'm sure we'll get up to see Travis at the hospital too, yes he's STILL there and I imagine going insane. That's who the snickerdoodles are for. :-) Sunday Aaron has to work for a bit, so I think I may attempt to get to the gym, and then we have dinner with my parents that day. Busy Busy Busy!

I also plan to make the bed up with our new snowflake comforter and navy sheets. I am BEYOND excited about this, I love new bedding!

Friday Fiver

1. Pick a theme song that represents your life:

Hmm... I have no idea. For the longest time (before I met Aaron obviously) I swore the Carpenter's hit 'Goodbye To Love' was my theme song. That and Rod Stewart's 'Some Guys Have All The Luck' only for a girl. (Me and Matt must be doomsdayers because we used to LOVE that song and say "that's my song" "no! That's MY Song!" Now... I really love the song "Dreamer" by Ozzy Osbourne. I shamelessy stole it from my friend Tatum, but it is a great song. If I had to be original and NOT steal someone else's theme song I would probably go with... Let it Be or Imagine or Yesterday by the Beatles. I LOVE those songs.

2. Do you talk to yourself?

Sometimes. Mostly I talk to the television; usually to Bush when they are playing sound bites of him on The Today Show... usually it's along the lines of "SHUT UP YOU DUMB MOTHERFUCKER."

3. Describe your relationship with your co-workers:

Depends on who you're talking about. With everyone but Satchel: friendly, hospitable, humorous etc. With Satchel... contemptuous, hateful, sullen... you know the drill.

4. Have you ever done karaoke?

This is a trick question right? OF course! I haven't done it in ages, but I love it.

5. Do you believe in love at first sight?

I don't know. Maybe. I don't think it's impossible.

Because laying on a hairbrush is comfortable.

Unfortunately his sullen attitude won't get him far in the world of modeling.
