Kamikaze Kitty

The last 24 hours have been a whirlwind of insane Xanadu tactics that escalated in a near vet visit (including blood).  Xanadu is fine though and resting heavily on my blanket.

Last night before we went to sleep, Essy and Xanadu were enjoying each other’s company a few feet apart.  Xanadu tends to be somewhat sane during the days, and then around midnight she goes into crazy mode.

Then right before we were about to fall asleep and all tucked into bed we heard a loud crash followed by MEOW. Xanadu decided to jump up onto a small 3 foot wall and then knock heavy items down which crashed into an open laptop.  A few of the laptops keys went flying off and now the G and the H key are permanently gone – not usable.  So don’t expect me to use any words including those letters when I am on there.

So we thought that was the end of disasterous events, but it was not.  I was lying in bed today ready to begin my day while Matthew ate some soup while finishing up work on the computer.  Xanadu, the Kamikaze kitty we all love was doing her daily laps around the apartment.  At usual full speed.  Chasing something that doesn’t exist.   She rounded the corner near Matthew’s desk, jumped straight up on top of his computer chair (the very top, above where your back leans against), and then continued to jump onto his desk while sliding on pieces of paper that were on top.  She slipped off the desk pushing a ceramic soup bowl (a favorite) shattering onto the floor in a million pieces.

We thought everyone was ok.  I checked on both kitties.  Essy was staring intently at the mess while Xanadu ran away and then looked back to see the damage.  We scolded Xanadu for her craziness, and then I picked her up onto my shoulder and took her into the bedroom to have a talk with her, hug her because I felt like she was scared of the shatter.  We layed on the bed and I put her in my arms and cuddled.  I thought she was fine.  About 30 minutes later while Matthew was on the phone, I saw Xanadu laying on the bed but I saw something frightening, I saw blood on her chest.  I spazzed out, yelled for Matthew and began to hyperventilate.   Matthew figured she got a small scratch and we grabbed a towel to wipe the dry blood.  While Matthew thought he was looking for the scratch on her chest, I saw Xanadu’s back paw lift up and saw a puddle of blood with a large cut.  I broke into hysterics, shakes, cries and pointed at Xanadu’s foot.  Matthew rushed me away from the cats because I was scaring them and making them more nervous while Xanadu got examined.  Matthew then cleaned her foot out and attempted to do a bandage which Xanadu continued to eat/rip off.  Matthew doesn’t think it’s bad enough to go to the vet, but I am still very worried and will always be super paranoid.   Since the accident, she’s been very quiet  to the point of worrying me more and hides under the television set.  She has hardly eaten anything today but I finally just got her to eat some soft food (ok, I gave in for sakes of making her eat) and now she’s snuggling.  I bought her a Halloween Ghost that makes noise while I was out this evening too in hopes of cheering her up.  Essy has been protective during this event.  She has checked up on Xanadu a few times and is being watchful of her little sister. 


Here’s Xanadu with her ghost from tonight.

Here’s the damage.

We expect a full recovery and expect to see her jumping from bridges in dare devil esque stunts soon.   Don’t scare your parents or family anymore. We love you Xanadu.
 

It's Friday Night

Tonight we went to our favorite and the greatest restaurant of all time, Chevy’s.  I got the same chicken taco meal I get every time I go there.  We went along with our little photo buddy GM Auto (aka Owen as his mother would call him) who is going to continue the fashion legacy once we leave SVA and keep the commercial spirits alive!! The next few days are pretty busy so currently we’re procrastinating doing everything and will pretend like nothing needs to be done.  Tomorrow I’m going to the FIT Museum where they have on display the Boudicca dress (or the other version) we shot a few weeks ago (ping: Stockton) among other things.   I’ll post pics tomorrow.  Oh, I also saw a man throw up in front of me while waiting for the bus.  Exciting times here.

What's too skinny?

Lindsaylohanskinnyshirt
People keep asking/talking to me about this ban on "skinny models" in Madrid.  I personally think it’s ridiculous and like Cathy Gould of Elite said "fashion industry was being used as a scapegoat for
illnesses like anorexia and bulimia."  I have an youtube e-stalker that keeps harrassing me about all my videos of models and claiming that I’m the second coming of Satan due to the girls I pick and how I basically cause girls to starve themselves.  It’s really annoying but it causes me laughter in my inbox.  Honestly, I don’t think the girls are "too skinny".   I think they’re sexy, strong and sweet girls all in their own way. I see models on a daily basis and work with them and I don’t see girls are sad and unhealthy.  Hell, I wish I could eat like them sometmes.  Are there ones who starve themselves to remain a size 4? Probably.  But there’s probably alot more on my block who starve themselves.  Let’s pick on them too.  I feel like the models are getting picked on and especially the fashion industry.  But those in the fashion industry who aren’t a size 2-4-6 (myself included) don’t really care.   Don’t expect Paris/New York/Milan to care either. Didier Grumbach, president of the couture federation said that "everyone would laugh" if France attempted to follow suit. "It’s for the designer to decide what type of model he needs… that cannot be regulated," Grumbach added.  True that. So stop your femnazifashion bullshit.  It’s really annoying.

Mars 2112

Tonight we went to another planet.  We as in Matthew, our friend Colton, and me.  We went to Mars.  Mars is a kitschy space themed restaurant on 51st/Broadway that has dancing martians, outer space named dishes and waitresses that do a trekkie esque signal upon waiting on you.  Basically, it’s the greatest place ever.  Upon entering, you take a space trip via flight simulator to the main level of the restaurant.  There you are greeted with the seating section that is decorated in space rock and a giant clear bubble where there are dancing martians (who have nice bums).  I had the Starfield Salmon and it was delicious!  Strangely enough, one of our past models Danielle was also on Mars.  Strangely enough, Colton is a booker at Elite and Danielle is one of his girls.  I guess all the cool  people hang out at Mars.  Of course the first thing Danielle said to us was "Where is Wubba?". Figures.    If you live here, you should check it out.  It’s a nice change that’s out of this world (har,  har).

Part-ay!

There are 4 parties/events that we are invited to tomorrow night.  They all fall  within the same time slot.  This isn’t possible, especially without giving in for a cab ride.  Especially when Matthew and Pamela’s RSVP come throughs is usually 10%. Something usually comes up, like editing, editing or nintendo.   We aren’t the scene types.  We hate these things.  Argh.

World War Food

101_3028_1
Food drama.  The girls food bowls are next to each other (with a water fountain in the middle).  Essy is off to the right, Xanadu is off to the left.  Essy only eats soft food, she doesn’t eat hard food.  Don’t attempt, don’t try to make her.. just don’t try or she’ll starve herself in protest.  Seriously, she has.  We want Xanadu to eat both hard and soft foods for health and practicality reasons.  She basically gets hard food everyday (Purina Kitten Chow) and soft kitten food as a reward/once a week.   Xanadu though has come to realize that soft food tastes so much better than hard food and has taken to eating out of her sisters’ bowl on a regular basis.  She still eats hard food (usaully at 3 AM and wakes us up as she is a very loud cruncher) but sneaks too much of Essy’s food.  Essy uses this to her advantage.  She isn’t fond of Xanadu eating out of her bowl, but Essy isn’t fond of the bottom of the bowl food after it’s sitting and theres no juices left, so she guides Xanadu to her bowl to finish her food so her bowl gets filled up with fresh juicy sliced greatness.  We try yelling at Xanadu, clapping our hands, picking her up and pointing out that isn’t her bowl, squirting her with a water bottle (which at first she was scared, but now she thinks it’s refreshing), but nothing works.  I don’t want Xanadu to turn into a soft food princess like her sister, but slowly and surely, I know it’ll happen.
