The rest of the kitten pictures from yesterday. Enjoy! As for a status update: they are still just as cute today as they were yesterday.

As a reminder, these little guys and gals are up for adoption! If you know of anyone in San Francisco who might like a kitten, they should consider it!

More kitten pictures!Collapse )

I'm fostering four eight-week old kittens for a rescue organization. They'll be with me until they get adopted!

What does this mean for you, dear reader? Essentially, it means that you will be bombarded with cuteness for the next two to four weeks. Apologies in advance.


Lance, Lyla, and Billy take a nap. :)

Click for more cuteness!Collapse )

Hey guys, I know this is probably annoying, but I am so close! Have you clicked today?

http://www.beintheheights.com/sarahladue

You can click once per day!

Also, if any of you have large LJ/IJ/facebook/twitter/etc. followings and wouldn't mind asking THEM to click, I would love you forever! I currently have 527 clicks ("points") and am in 7th place in San Francisco. I know it says 38th, but that's nationwide -- I only have to be in the top 5 in SF, and you can see those rankings if you click the little link that says "Change" and select "San Francisco" from the list. The current 5th place person has 739 points, so I'm definitely within range to beat them!

Please help me get into the top 5 and win free tickets to one of my favorite shows! ♥ The show starts its run here on Tuesday, so I'm guessing they'll end the contest for SF residents soon, and then I will stop bugging you!

Can everyone do me a favor and just click on that link? All you have to do is open it, you don't have to sign up or anything. The top five people with the most "views" get free tickets to the In The Heights tour, which is San Francisco this month. I'm already going, but it's one of my all time favorite shows and I'd sure as hell love to see it twice.

Thanks! For more In The Heights awesomeness, check out their Tony Awards Performance or the video they made for the touring cast. I love them.

Yes, yes, we finally have a new President and I am very happy about it. IDK, I've had all of the high and low moments I'm capable of having over this election already.

But what I can get excited about is something that happens in less than 24 hours:

LOST, SEASON 5.

As such, I bring you my first Lost post of the season. Longtime readers will know that there will be many as the season progresses. I would like to start it out with this quote, from the world's smartest man, aka my best friend Dane:

"Certainly talking to other Lost fans can be annoying, since most of them are so clueless and watch the show the way most people read Dan Brown novels. But I think what bugs me most is people who try to trivialize the show because they aren't into it. When people tell me "it's just a TV show" I regularly tell them "and 1984 was just a book" - or something along those lines. Yes, I realize it is *just* a TV show and the world does not begin or end with Lost... but Lost makes life worth living."

And now... I give you a giant dose of Lost picspam, along with some ponderings and favorite Lost quotations!

WARNING: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED SEASONS 1 THROUGH 4.

LOST PICSPAM!Collapse )

The following videos are footage of what's been happening in Gaza for the past week. They're disturbing and graphic, but I strongly believe that adults should watch them - we need to fully understand what's happening, not just brush over a few news articles and discard them as 'depressing.'

In the first video, the man at 1:52 is giving his declaration of faith, a practice which Muslims do right before they die.



The second video shows people streaming into hospitals, all of which are low on supplies and struggling to deal with the number of people being brought in.



I'm not someone who "sides" with any one government here - in fact, that's impossible, because no one can really agree who both sides are. In theory, this fight is between Hamas and the Israeli government. However, the lines are blurred, and I simply can't find any way to rationalize the numbers of innocent Palestinians who have been killed or are suffering and starving due to all of the area's supplies being cut off. Yes, Israel has a right to protect itself, and an end most certainly needs to come to the rocket strikes being carried out by Hamas. But killing hundreds of innocent civilians doesn't seem like lateral retribution to me, and the situation in Gaza is only breeding more hatred for the Israeli people among young Palestinians, who will in turn grow up to plan new attacks on Israel. It's a tragic cycle, and the worst thing that the world can do is to continue to turn a blind eye.

OH HEY I'M BACK IN CALIFORNIA.

And I'm exhausted. And I've begun the strenuous process of uploading my 500-ish pictures to Facebook. I'll link to all of them when I'm done (sometime tomorrow, I'm guessing) but for now, please enjoy a couple of my nicer photos that I've fixed up in photoshop for display:

They're not huge, but big enough to go behind a cut.Collapse )

I made it to Bangkok! The train was fine, actually, and crossing the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge (I just love saying that - come on, say it - Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge!) went smoothly, although immigration on the Thai side took FOREVER. I slept pretty decently, although my window kept coming open and my allergies have been giving me a really hard time. I also picked up a new book in Vientiane yesterday, thinking that because it was pretty thick, it'd take me AT LEAST two days to get through... unfortunately, I started and finished it on the train. Sometimes I really hate how fast I read. I traded it in for another used book this morning in Bangkok, and I figure I'll probably finish it today and buy another one in the airport in Korea tomorrow.

I was really horrid looking when I got off the train - I mean, come on, I have massively curly, long hair and I was sleeping on a train - so luckily I was able find a guesthouse with a shower I could use for 30 baht (about $1). They also let me leave my ridiculously heavy bags there (I finally did my Christmas shopping in Laos) so now I'm just wandering around, killing time.

I bought an airport bus ticket for 8pm, because although in theory my flight leaves at 1:15am, it was a change from the original time of 11:15pm, and my Expedia account still has the original time on it, even though they're the ones who sent me the time change. I'm not too concerned about it, I'm sure the 1:15am time is probably correct, but it's not like I have anything to do, anyway, so I'm just going to get to the airport around 9pm to be safe. I need to remember to bring food with me, though - it's horrendously expensive at the Bangkok airport, moreso even than most. $3 for a can of Pepsi! WTF, Bangkok. WTF.

Ummm... ok. I am going to try and kill at least another 30 minutes on the Internet before I go find lunch. Basically I plan on just eating all day. I think this is a pretty legit plan.

ALSO: I can't wait to get home and see my cat. Seriously.
