Meant to write this blog yesterday, but as soon as kit got home, kit just passed out from her exaustion. Didn’t even know when Master crawled into bed next to her… Oops, sorry Master, kit didn’t follow her nightly protocols. Yesterday was like one of … Continue reading Random Acts of Kindness
Imagine a tiger such as the one in today’s picture walks up to a waterhole for the first time after a long journey. Thirsty, tired, and wounded. It surveys the land, nothing in sight. Always minding the dangers that a waterhole can bring, it stops … Continue reading Uncertain Waters
Last day of conference yay!!! Then freedom. Aaaand today’s lectures won’t be so bad either. Dr.T is kit’s favorite emergency clinician back in Purdue and she is presenting all morning. Will definately not dissapoint.
Towards the end of the conference, people are definitely getting grumpier. kit woke up late and the tram (yes it started working earlier in the week) was taking its time, so naturally kit was late for her lecture. It was a semi-full house, but there were still single or double seats open with people’s stuff on it. According to local Fire Marshall , no one is allowed to stand or sit on the sides of the room. So kit politely asked one of the vets to see if kit could sit there…that person proceeded to glare at the kit and reluctantly moved her bag onto the floor…geez! A backpack is not a person you know! Sigh…it still made kit feel crappy so kit proceeded to apologize at the end of the lecture. That person just pretended not to hear the kit and stormed away. You just can’t make everybody happy…lesson re-learned.
Thank god Dr. T can be so animated and hilarious at serious subjects like CPRs and toxicities. She made the time fly by this morning. Kinda miss the old days when her and kit were partners in crime in ECC department. Good times =D
Master is taking kit to Secret Garden at Mirage for free tomorrow. And we are saving up for the most epic buffet tomorrow at Ceasars Palace =D then back to LA we go. kit is missing her furry babies and not so arid air. Vegas is cool but too crowded with way too many people for kit’s liking. Rather go to some national parks and just soak in all the science for an ideal vacation. WVC did advertise for CE on a cruise ship to Alaska later this year or in the future…Shall consider that for next, next year.
Rawr…this morning Master held kits backpack hostage in exchange for a kiss. kit is not really a PDA type of girl…so a kiss infront of all other ppl is a bit…>. < can’t complain too much though considering Master did carry her backback all the way to the convention…sigh…He is becoming more of a sadist everyday. Certainly brings excitement to life though in both good and bad way.
A bit dissapointed at the first lecture of the day. kit disagreed with one of the speaker’s core concepts, and then it became really hard to follow after that. You would think that all lecturers at this conference are expert in their fields. Guess not really… kit’s not really upset, just dissapointed that kit could have been to a more informative talk for that hour…double sigh…
Then came lunch time…Whenever there is something for free like lunch, people flock to it like locusts. kit, being the frugal kit she is, has the same problem. Although kit will at least figure out if that free stuff is worth a while…Well it was a talk on renal ultrasound that kit desperately needed to hone her ultrasound skils. Swear, half of those people at the talk were not even intrested in ultrasounds. They were all on their phones or doing other things…There went kit’s free lunch QQ…triple sigh…but kit can now interpret ultrasounds better. So not all is lost.
Speaking of free stuff, there was this really cute blue kitty tote bag that kit wanted from one of the vendors..and a VR demo was all that was needed…then kit remembered Master’s horror story of ppl getting pink eyes from VR demos at gaming conventions…guess there is always a price to pay, even for the free stuffz. 5 minutes of disorienting VR experience later, kit got her free bag in hand. Here goes to hope that kit don’t get pink eyes >. <
Sorry for the endless complains for today. Will end today’s blog on some good notes. Kit made it through another day of lecture and feels smarter. Oh and kit got to witness Puppy Soccer Cup. So fluffy…and kit definately needs lots of head pets from Master tonight.
Each morning, as Master and the kit walk toward the convention center, kit was compelled to make somewhat of a funny observation that kit refered to as the Great Vet Migration in the persuit of insatiable knowledge. kit just had to blog about it for … Continue reading The Great Migration
Kit is starting to think this is no longer a vacation anymore lol…just sat through 9 hours of lectures…kit’s back hurts from being hunched over all the time and kit’s brain is about to explode with information. There are still 3 more days left…oh god… … Continue reading Vacation Part III
As Master and kit were walking to the convention center at Mandalay Bay this morning for registration, there was this black stalky event helper guy fist bumping, singing and dancing the whole time while giving directions to lost souls like us. Then it hit the … Continue reading Vacation Part II
Been to Vegas so many times, yet there is still lots to do in this sin city. Kit’s not really a gambler, a drinker, nor a partier. So…that’s like half of what Vegas can offer. Other than annual convention to catch up with kit’s CE credits, kit mostly comes here for sight seeing, shows, window shopping, and buffets…kit is a cheapskate, kit knows… Hey! in this age of consumerism, it’s not easy to earn and save money for the future. Have to be a bit stingy here and there.
Master has introduced a new protocol for the kit yesterday for a test drive. Kit is to always walk on His right side so He can be in contact with the kit at all times. Initially kit was like psh easy peasy, but as it turns out kit messed up twice within three hours >. <…she tend to get lost in a large crowd…being a head shorter than the Master and all. Got chastised, but its all good, kit’s butt is still intact XD. Speaking of which, Master decided to give kit a maintenance spanking prior to the road trip and he went to town with it geez, kit’s butt is still a little sore sitting down…
So as we waited in line for Tournament of Kings, we saw a family with a little boy carrying a really cute green dinosaur backpack on his back…with a leash to his dad. So kit jokingly said to the Master that maybe kit needs one of those backpacks…and he really liked that idea… O.o…was just a joke sheesh!
Anyway, gonna go figure out what to do today other than lectures.
Weeeeeee eeeeeee Vegas!!! Haven’t been since two years ago. Or was it last year…can’t remember…kit has a Dory brain sometimes…sorry about that…Strange thing is that kit’s memory is perfectly fine at work, but once out of work, kit’s a mess. Master would often need to step in to fill kit’s memory gaps. It scares the kit sometimes, what if kit gets Alzimers?!…would be so sad, like that of Notebook. Another reason why kit started blogging is so kit can remember haha.
Back to Vegas trip. Got most of the things taken care of. Everything packed. Just need to drop off the doggies at grandma’s for their vacation too. Hope they don’t gain too much weight after a week of our absence …since grandma likes to give them treats every hour or so and then the dreaded cheese on top of their food…talking about spoiled doggies, but seriously kit does not want to deal with diarrhea vomiting dogs when she gets back…>. <
Got all the lectures picked out for the convention up until Tuesday…haha…still got a bit of homework to do till Thursday… One of the prime reasons why kit attends WVC is because of this particular lecture given by Joel Sartore, National Geographic Photographer on his work Photo Ark. To say kit is uber excited to hear him talk is an understatement. The talk is first come first serve basis, so kit will be at the front of the line tomorrow…
Was looking through the program last night and saw one of her professors and senior clinician back in vet school is gonna be there as one of the lecturers. In kit’s imperfect memory, she was scarry and intimidating. She smiles and has a sense of humor, but something about her is a bit unsettling… kit had her for one of her internal med rotations…kit still gets anxiety just remembering that particular “special grade A client of hers”…the client’s cat eventually got put down in the courtyard of our campus…talking about special treatment…Needless to say, kit was quite sleep deprived during that rotation…shudders…but! kit did end on a good term with her before kit graduates so will go and say hi.
So much to look forward to, will blog later.
Having a relative slow day at work, finally, so kit decided to blog on something more light hearted hehe…was originally gonna talk about a puppy born w/o an anus…but didn’t feel like it anymore as the ending was a bit sad…So! today’s focus is how … Continue reading Cat Wrangler
