My Pet Parrot is Sick:(

I had a very emotionally exhausting day today my female cockatiel got sick. We had to take her to the vet today (well March 29th to be exact because it's after midnight). I first noticed it when she didn't greet my dad with the loud greeting song that she usually does. Instead she was making these very sad almost painful screeches.

But they were nowhere near the volume she usually would use. And she was just so weak that when anyone picked her up (which she usually hates and fights against) she didn't protest.

We took her in and the place we went to didn't specialize in birds so they couldn't tell exactly what was wrong. She had a strange fluid sack on her lung so they popped it to make the fluid come out.

They also said that she seems to have a bad infection that I would guess built up in the lung. And they give her some medication which we will be administering again tomorrow if she makes it through the night.

I'm very down today and I don't think I've cried this much since I was 8. It's so hard for me to watch any animal suffer. We've had her for 10 years so (my parents and I) are very attached to her.

I really hope she's gonna be ok I'm thinking positively at the moment.

Happy Birthday to the Flawless Lucy Lawless:)

Happy Birthday!! to former Xena star Lucy Lawless who turns 38 today. All the best and nothing but success in all future endeavors.

Also in relation to this there's a Lucy Birthday petition started by the Xena fans. Just thought I would put this in my blog for anyone who is a fan and would like to send Lucy some wishes.

Personally I don't know why this is a petition. Would have been better if it was a guestbook or something nonetheless here is the link:

First Sharapova Now Maria Kirilenko :(

Well Martina Hingis fought hard against Kirilenko but lost in a tough 3 setter. She played wonderfully, the rallies were incredibly long. They were so long in fact that Martina suffered a cramp in the third set and had to call a trainer.

From what I have read Martina plans to take the next 3 weeks off to rest and train and I guess get ready for her tournament in Poland and French Open in May.

Which I think is a very good idea it'll give her time to improve her game. She definitely deserves a breather, after all unlike a lot of the other players on the tour this year she has been playing non-stop since January '06 after a 3 year break.

So good for her glad she's taking a small break. And I wish her luck all around in all her upcoming tournaments in May. Although knowing her she'll probably play one more tournament at the end of April lol.

Martina Hingis to Play in Warsaw Poland!!

Martina has entered a Tier II event in Warsaw, Poland starting May 1st 2006. Darn it this is another one of those times I wish I was back in my home country lol. Apparently she has entered them in the past but of course I had no clue lol.

Also I found a Polish Martina Hingis Message board it looks like it has just been started but, so far looks good so check it out I added a link to it on my blog:). So all the Polish Martina Hingis enthusiasts flock on over there!. :)

Sick as a Dog Again!:(

This is getting annoying for the 3rd time this year I feel like absolute crap. I don't know what the heck is going on it's gotta be due to this insane weather and weird temperatures. Or just some kind of weird virus that won't go away.

I'm just so pissed at myself every time I plan something I have to cancel due to feeling like sh** physically. I'm hoping that this will be the last time for a long while. Otherwise I'm gonna go insane!. My mind is still really muddled today so I'll stop now before the stuff I write begins to make no sense. Hopefully I'll feel better in the next couple of days.

Hingis Loses to Sharapova Again:(

Hingis waving to the crowd after loosing to Maria Sharapova 3/6 3/6

Well Martina lost:( Maria Sharapova is one tough cookie. Martina played great but I guess Sharapova was having a better day.
So Sharapova's wins this year against Hingis are 2 to 1. I haven't watched the whole match because I don't like watching when my favorite player loses.
I get very upset and mope around for the rest of the day lol. Told you I was like one of those crazy soccer fans lol. At least Hingis can still take pride in the huge win over Davenport.

But I have no doubt that Hingis will learn from this and beat Sharapova in the next meeting. So here's hoping she does better in the Nasdaq 100 Event coming up on Monday March 20th.
Also couple of other things about Sharapova, now I think she's a great player but there's one thing that annoys the heck out of me when she plays.

And that would be the way she shouts louder with every point, it's very distracting not only to the viewer but also to the other player I'm sure.
There I'm done, off to finish watching another Swiss Semi-Final Roger Federer.

Another One of Those Days

I'm having a really bad day today well day and night I guess, about the only thing cheering me up at the moment is the anticipation of more Tennis on the way this Saturday. There is a song lyric that really underlines the mood I'm currently in.

This song just seems to really resonate with me, certain parts of it do on a daily basis lately. It's a song called Addicted by Kelly Clarkson. And I promised myself I wouldn't do this kind of thing, but with the day I've had what the hell.

It's like you are a drug
It's like you are a demon I can't face down
It's like I'm stuck It's like I'm running from you all the time
And I know I let you have all the power
It's like the only company
I seek is misery all around
It's like you are a leech
Sucking the life from me
It's like I can't breathe
Without you inside of me
And I know I let you have all the power
And I realize I'm never gonna quit you over time

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts, in my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me

It's like I'm lost
It's like I'm giving up slowly
It's like you are a ghost that's haunting me
Leave me alone
And I know these voices in my head are mine alone
And I know I'll never change my ways if I don't give you up now

It's like I'm not me
It's like I'm not me
I'm hooked on you
I need a fix I can't take it
Just one more hit
I promise I can deal with it
I'll handle it, quit it Just one more time, then that's it
Just a little bit more to get me through this

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts, in my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me
It's like I'm not me

The Swiss Miss wins against Lindsay Davenport!!

Martina Hingis all smiles after winning a match against Lindsay 6/3 1/6 6/2

For those who know me and even those who don't you'll find out very quickly that I am a huge tennis fan especially when it comes to the women's game and especially when it comes to Martina Hingis;). So you'll just have to forgive my huge rant;).

I can't promise it won't happen again in the future lol. I'm basically like one of those crazy avid soccer fans that goes nuts after their favourite team wins lol. So anybody who reads my blog will just have to live with it lol.

I have been watching her since she was 14 winning the biggest tournaments and becoming the #1 player in the world. She's now 25 and still kicking butt! lol.

I actually stopped watching tennis after she retired in late 2002 because it just wasn't exciting for me anymore. In recent years tennis has become all about power, the powerful 115km serves, the huge returns. And none of the players ever play with finesse or brains using all their skills and coming to the net.

Which is something that Martina Hingis was and still is a master at, and she just makes you wanna watch. She was the player that started my interest in tennis and now she's the one that brought it back.:). I was watching her at The Pacific Life Open today and she won in a 3 setter against none other then Lindsay Davenport. And I just had to talk about it because it's such a huge victory for her especially after a 3 year retirement due to major foot and ankle injuries.

As a fan it makes me so happy to see her doing so well, and it is just such a joy to watch her play because unlike a lot of the players today she really loves the game. And you can tell that every time she steps out on the court. Ok I'm done ranting now lol. I'll just continue to do a happy dance for the next couple of days till her next match lol.

For anyone who wants to learn more about this great player be sure check out the link to the Martina Hingis Message board right here on my blog:) where you can read all about her incredible accomplishments, her bio as well as check out some great videos and photos.;)

What a Frustrating Day!

Any of you ever have one of those days where anything and anyone totally pisses you off? This is the type of day I had, filled with nothing but yelling and arguments. My nerves are completely on edge today and I'm just waiting for the parental units to go to sleep so I can have some peace.

Maybe that's why I have become such a night hawk, because it is the only time I can have total silence and time to myself. And I swear if I hear the phone ring one more time I'm going to throw it against the freakin' wall. And it looks like tomorrow is not gonna get any better, especially since I'll be forced into being a social butterfly. Oh, joy.

I don't usually get this dark but with the day I've had there was just no way I could be all happy and cheerful. I think that maybe the lack of sleep is making me cranky as well. Ok I think that's it for now. Felt good to get that off my chest. I'll be back tomorrow hopefully in a better mood. Although I highly doubt it lol.

This was Gonna Be a Comment But What the Hell:)

Wow Eryk that was fast! lol thanks for commenting I hope to see you on here often;). And yeah I know what you mean about the 12 years, doesn't feel like it though. Time just flies by so fast. Man! I'm just so happy you replied you have no idea, I hope this way we can keep in more regular contact.

Although I know you're also busy with school. Anyway I'll stop now, one thing that I'll tell you about me is that I ramble on actually I think I always did that. Even when we were growing up lol. So I'm sure that's nothing new.

Anyways keep reading my blog and I'm sure you'll discover lots of interesting things about me lol. Check out my detailed profile too. You can find out what music and movies I like and that kind of thing. Ok, seriously going to sleep now what time is it? 3:30AM? Geez, lol.

To anybody reading this don't mind me I'm just replying to one of the comments, it just became so long I decided to make it into a post lol.

Damn, I'm Feeling Like Crap

I've been feeling absolutely awful this past week there's gotta be some kind of virus going around or something. Anyway I'm just making a post because I've changed some settings so people who don't have a blogger account can leave comments if they want. And I hope they will.

In fact I encourage anyone who views it to please do so;). I know I've just started and I'm kinda new at it. But hopefully it will get a little more interesting as the months roll on. Ok I think that's all I'll stop my rambling 'cause that's all I've been doing lately lol. My brain doesn't work properly when I don't feel well lol.

Small blog note for those on a Mac

For those who are running a Mac OS9 operating system with Internet Explorer 5.1 be aware that there is a bug with the text wrapping and graphics. So the blog may show up with some strange errors like the text running off the page or the photo showing up at the bottom instead of the top.

Just a heads up;)

It's Oscar night

Well so far I have watched the beginning which was interesting, some great CGI work putting all those movies together like that nice touch. Also loved the homage so to speak to all the previous hosts like Billy, Steve and Whoopi. And I loved that they all declined it LOL!. I think that probably reflects something that happens every year when the Academy goes looking for a host lol.

Also I have to say they did well choosing John Stewart that guy is perfect for the Oscars, 'cause he's actually funny. He made some brilliant jokes I loved the one with Angelina Jolie LOL!. Also loved the little segment that was making fun of Broke back Mountain with the cowboy movies lol. Who knew? lol. Some nice editing there too.

And it looks like the Oscars are really going for humor this year, making fun of the Oscar cliches of actors going over time on their speeches even going as far as putting Ben Stiller in a green suit lol.

I guess they finally realized not a lot watched last year and that 4 hours with bad jokes doesn't bring many viewers. I think this year is a huge improvement. Can't guarantee that I'll watch it to the end though. It's also nice to see Goerge Clooney get an Oscar way over due if you ask me.

One thing I'm definitely over are all those Oscar gowns in fact I loved when John Stewart made the joke about the actress's not having enough money for a whole dress due to piracy. The guy is hilarious LOL.

Ok I just had to come back to add this I think the joke and the line of the night goes to John Stewart for this gem "Holy Crap I can't wait to see the Oscars salute to montages". And this "We are out of clips we are literally out of clips if you have some please send them I don't care if they're beta just send them".

The geek in me had big laugh at that one LOL!. Bravo John Stewart I hope they bring him back. And they certainly are piling on the film montages this year I guess that will help stretch it to or over the 4 hour mark lol!.

Boy, you know the Oscars have changed when a rap song is not only nominated but performed LOL!. Edited to add the rap song won wow, now I am shocked lol!.

Also while watching the Pre-Oscar show I noticed Sandra Bullock was wearing a gown with pockets, pretty deep pockets too. That's just so Sandra lol.

And Reese Witherspoon just won an Oscar wow, good for her!.

I think I will stick around long enough to see if Chronicles of Narnia wins anything. Ok going back to watch it will come back and give further thoughts on it if I can last that long lol.

Well "Crash" came out as the winner of Best Motion Picture surprising after all that hype about Broke back Mountain. Also the Oscars actually ended early or on time this year however you wanna look at it. They were only 3.30 hours. Huh never thoughts I would see that day lol.

Well I think I have all the bugs worked out:)

Well I played around with the blog yesterday and I think I learned how to do a bunch of stuff, I will be adding more blogs once my life gets more exciting 'cause right now it's pretty snooze worthy . Till then I'll just keep making little random posts like these. lol I better stop or I'll keep rambling on I've only had like 4 hours of sleep today and I'm not making much sense.

This is what happens when one is a night owl like myself and then receives unexpected company at 9 or 10AM the next morning, you end up walking around like a zombie for the rest of the day. lol Hopefully there will be days when my thoughts are a little deeper then this and hopefully a little more insightful.

I have to say though I could definitely get addicted to this thing.

Ok, little embarrassing

Ok, obviously I'm still learning to use this thing because I have no clue what I'm doing lol, I posted a blog but the body of it is not showing up lol. And in this invisible blog I wrote that it's pretty user friendly I think I'll have to retract that statement now lol. And gotta say putting up links is not as easy as I thought but I'm learning. And here I go babbling on again, I have a feeling that will happen a lot lol.
