Well, that was one of the least pleasant experiences of my entire life. It could've been worse. The cat dissection could've been much worse, and I think I was expecting it to be, but it was still... the opposite of fun. I started crying. Not like bawling, but I had to fight like hell to not. I was all weepy and sniffley. My lab partner asked if I needed to leave, but I managed to stick it out. We had no idea what the fuck we were doing though. We were kind of just cutting haphazardly at the cat and trying to get other people to help us/copy what they were doing. I don't know how everyone else in the class was just born knowing how to dissect felines. We skipped like half of what we're supposed to do, and our instructor was just kind of not helpful. THANK GOD the cats were already skinned for us. It was bad enough that there was still fur on the face and the face still looked like a cat, but I never would've made it if we'd had to skin them. You know how they sometimes call fat men "Tiny"? Well, likewise we named our cat Fluffy. Our lab instructor kept calling them kitties and it was all just very disturbing.

Oh, but her is the most disturbing part. So, the rest of our lab section is doing part 2 of the cat dissection next Monday, but sine my lab partner will be out for Passover, we're going to do our part 2 with the other lab section on Wednesday. Bonus that we get to get this horror over with sooner. But I was telling our lab instructor this and he was like, "Okay, just make sure that you put your cat back in our class' box on Wednesday otherwise you won't know where to find it for next semester." o_0 He had mentioned earlier to be careful not to cut too far into the cats and puncture the ventral cavity or what not because that was for next semester and the cats would rot. Well I thought he was talking about they'd rot by next week. No, he really meant next semester. BECAUSE THEY KEEP THE CATS. YOU USE THE SAME FREAKIN' CAT IN A&P II. WTF. Like, you get YOUR CAT BACK. Like, I will see Fluffy again whenever I take A&P II. Isn't that disturbing on a multitude of levels? Like, it just seems so... impractical! I can see keeping the cats, but the fact that you get your very same cat back? Fucked up. *shudder* Definitely not looking forward to A&P II now. Or even Wednesday.

Fluffy reminded me of Buttercream. Fluffy is orange, too. But he (we think a he... but not totally sure, I told you we suck at this) had extra toes, which was kind of cool. But sad. ANY OTHER KIND OF ANIMAL. Why did we have to do cats??

I came home and picked up Lola and just started sobbing. She actually let me hold her for a while. I think she could tell something was wrong. She did the cutest thing, was like looking back and forth between foreverseenstar and me, being like, "What do I do?!" She's adorable sometimes when she's not being a demon.

All of that just really affirmed the fact that I'm a vegetarian. Cutting that cat was like carving a turkey or a roast or something. Ugh. I do not even want to look at meat dead animal flesh for a very long time.

Anyway, on a much happier note, but maybe just as disturbing, Amie and Eric got the house they wanted! The buyers accepted their offer. Now they just have to have an inspector come out to make sure everything's cool, and they'll probably move in by the end of May. MY FRIENDS ARE BUYING A HOUSE! STOP BEING GROWN UP, CHRIST! It's bad enough they're going and getting married, but now they're going to have a mortgage. We are OLD. I can keep my delusions of childhood until people start popping out babies. *glares at Megan* No babies anytime soon. Babies ruin the party. And we all have much partying to do. In people's houses that they OWN. Gah. lol But their house is really cute, and I can't wait to see it in person. :)

Okay, I'm going to go light some scented candles and wash my hands for the 32nd time tonight because I can still smell cat goo despite having showered and changed out of all my clothes. :( Later, skaterz.

Oh my god. I think I would have started crying or something. I cannot imagine how you lived through that *hugs*
I think it'd be even easier for me to cut a dead human body than a cat. I am only assuming here of course ;D

Lola is the cutest thing!

I was saying the same thing. At least with a human you know that they donated their body to science. I'm sure they cats didn't choose that fate.

Lola is the cutest thing!
Thank you. :)

I so would not be able to do that. Never in a bazillion years. Lola is adorable.

::runs off to huggle her kitties::

C'mon, you know you want to spoil my future babies like crazy!! This past Saturday was an absolute blast, we must make sure that we do girls night/day once a month, seeing as you are my martini partner in crime! :)

You need to wait until I can actually afford to spoil them though!

Yes, yes, definitely. Maureen is supposed to tell us when she's free during April so we can plan another night and she can actually make an appearance!
