Latest video: YouTuber Challenge, aka, “Stop talking about Cry, Kat! Jeez!”
So those of you who “follow” or know a little about me, know that I suffer from pretty severe anxiety for a series of issues. There are 3 or 4 issues in particular, most of which have been extremely heightened by the increase in popularity of my YouTube channel.
The way I handle things…
This is exactly my thoughts on my cats - particularly Monty. (He and my kitten went missing late last year, you may remember, and I ended up in an emotional downward spiral for months because of that.) I’ve really become overly protective over him, and have to make sure I know where he is all the time, just so I keep tabs for my own piece of mind. ‘Course, it doesn’t help that one of my other cats, Toby, is super jealous of Monty, with the constant attention he gets from me, and often chases him out the house when I’m not around to protect him, leaving him out in the cold - literally!
I recently became really upset and angry with Toby, and was, once again, an emotional mess. I’d had enough. I actually made a post about that here
and the fact that Cry snapped me out of my bad thoughts. It helps that I can vent my thoughts to a place like this, partly because no-one pays attention to my rants, (To be honest, that’s not a bad thing when I’m feeling awful, believe it or not! I like to be left alone to cope with things, but it also helps for me to get things off my chest, without having to actually talk to anyone in particular.) and partly because the people who do care, have told me they’re here for me.
Oh, the dilemmas of being an animal’s parent! I know how normal people think about human kids now!
Although I still hate kids… hah.
So tonight I helped my godmother out at a fundraiser, which… would be fine, if my head was in the right place, and I felt even the tiniest bit like socialising, and not, y’know, sitting in the corner crying! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to get home, and the first thought I had was, “I wonder if Cry’s uploaded a video yet. I could do with a pick-me-up!” He had, so yay! But then I came on Tumblr, and notice I’m back up to 300 followers, (which is bonkers, by the way. Thank you!) and my 300th follower was.. Crys-Love! That was unexpected, haha, but it made me smile, so thank ya, sir!
No offence to the body parts and miscellaneous items related to Cry, (you guys are hilarious!) but this was a less creepy surprise, haha!
So, I’ve just been catching up on last night’s RidgeAround, and with all the noises the game Pulse was making, it seemed to catch my kitten’s attention. So I went over to her in her bed, and we sat and watched it together.
Heidi was just spayed yesterday, so naturally, she’s feeling sorry for herself. But she had fun watching the game, as Ridge threw the little furry hamster-Boohbah things around!
And now she’s asleep. So thanks, Ridge, I wanted her to rest as much as possible, haha! I dunno how she slept through all the monster sounds, and Ridge inevitably boredom-raging at the game. But hey, I’m not complaining!
So, being a fairly new subscriber/fan of Cry’s*, I’ve been doing what I always do when I subscribe to someone new - gone through his archive, and watched some of his playthroughs, and stuff. Anyway, I just happened to be watching his Haunting Ground playthrough, when he said:
“…Maybe I’d be a good lapdog for an old lady. Hewie, I could be a purse dog! One of those little fluffy bastards! That’d be amazing!”
So, I drew a pomeranian in a purse… Kinda. I’m not even sure you’d class this thing as a dog, but whatever! It was fun!
Although, as you can tell, I did get bored drawing the bag, so.. Yeah, just ignore that, haha!
Whilst browsing the net, earphones in - not paying attention to anything much in particular - I just happened to overhear the TV:
“It’s big. It’s epic. It’s ridgey!”
“Ridgey?!” Ridge, you’re not crisps, stop that! I can no longer hear the word “ridge”, without thinking about this mug!
sixtruewords answered: Please feel free to join us even if you afk often! We would love to have more fun Tumblrites! We don’t bite, promise ;)
cannibalcow answered: Well I. uh. some of us bite, but the others are nice ^_^
Haha, I can handle some nibbles, don’t worry, CC! Thanks ladies, I’ll probably set up an account before the week is up then, I guess. Because, yeah, you all seem super nice! It’d be a shame to let the opportunity of gaining some new friends go amiss!
Edit: I made an account already… Apparently with excessive amounts of caffeine in my system, I manage to pull my finger out, stop being such a wuss, and get things done! JesterHorhay, as with everything, for those of you who care. I probably won’t be streaming, but whatevz! (I’ve got a BlogTV account still, and I haven’t streamed on there in years. You’re more likely to see a vloggy-type thing on Tumblr/Dailymotion to be honest, hah!)
If Ridge keeps reading out the quotes I post from the RidgeArounds, I’m gonna have to get a Twitch account, and get involved in the chat! I feel like such a creeper when I’m listening to him read it out, and just laughing to myself! But I’m usually making/eating food and dealing with the kitten while I’m watching his stream, so I wouldn’t be saying much anyway.
…I can just be a creeper for now, right?
Decided to draw Ridge Rabbit whilst catching up on what I’d missed from the end of Ridge’s stream last night. (And keeping an ear open for quotes, of course!)
I don’t know what I was doing, but Jessica Rabbit-esque Fem!Ridgedog is hot*, so sue me!
Really wish I was still at college, or at least owned a sewing machine, because I would wear the shit out of that coat! Just sayin’…* If only I could put my imagination onto paper, she’d look better. But trust me, she looks great in my head hahah! Plus, I can’t draw hands.. or feet, apparently, so… yeah!
I’m not taking anything away from RidgeBitch, though. I love how she’s all matronly and stuff; she’s awesome. But Ridgedog’s such a suave bastard, and Jessica Rabbit’s all sultry.. it just sorta worked in my mind.
So, I finally finished watching season 2 of The Walking Dead. It was amazing, (unsurprisingly!) but at the end of it all, I couldn’t help thinking, “…Do we have any shooting ranges nearby?”
God, please don’t let me become TB!
So, I feel like cheetah butt today, and should probably have stayed in bed, and not have taken to my laptop like I did, because my head and eyes hurt something rotten. But I missed the end of the Dream Team Stream last night, so I watched it on the VoD, and got all emotional, because Sparkles*.
And I’m ill. But mostly because Sparkles*. I’m gonna miss that face, NGL.
And then Bunny was streaming, so, of course, I couldn’t miss her! She cheered me up a lot, to be honest, but laughing at Rabbit coming out every-so-often did hurt a bit… Was worth it, though! And now I’m half watching TB & TGS streaming on the Yogscast’s Christmas livestream, and half watching Ridgedog’s VoD from his stream last night.
I’m not sure if I should be all, “Damn you! *Shakes fist* I should be in bed!” or “Thanks for keeping me sane, for cheering me up, and for making me feel just that little bit better today.” …Probably the latter.
Am I Steve Negrete yet?
So, on Thursday I helped my godmother out in her shop. She gave me a couple of headbands, and already they’re starting to replace beanies as my headwear of choice! And all because the brown, black, and white stripey one, similar to this, made me think of Steve!
We got talking about how I’ve always wanted dreads, and I put these on and went, “Well, I’m gonna need to get dreads now!” So… I may have started a thing.. LoL.
Ohnoes! Uhh.. don’t look behind me at the complete chaos that is my set of drawers. I really should get round to clearing some of that stuff away. Plus, as usual, I can’t take a photo of myself without looking like a smug bastard! I also blinded myself with the flash, so that didn’t help, LoL.
