Joe

Recently, I heard Joey giving one of his toys a pretty fair beating. He is a busy cat and I swear he sleeps only at night. Well, ever curious as to what he found to amuse himself, I looked in on his playtime. And I grabbed the camera of course :)

I do believe he was making a bit of a political statement...




and I will spare you the other 500 pictures I took, haha

firefox extensions

Just received my weekly ComputerWorld fix. I am linking the following article for those who are Firefox users- particularly those interested in extensions. I have a few add-ins to make my browsing experience more delightful- however there are so many, that I might be missing out on some really helpful ones. The article ferrets out the "20 Must-have Firefox extensions". I enjoyed going through what their opinion is of the add-ins--and what can be expected. The dirt on them may save me time with d/l. I had hoped for a review on Jet Packs.. alas I will just have to give it a try myself. enjoy!

Page 5 has goodies for coders/developers.

limited edition toxic green milkshake

I'm not obsessed, I just wasn't sure exactly what flavor the coveted Shamrock Shakes actually are. (to answer (e:leetee) ) Shamrock? ;) Mint? Kinda, but not really.. So I decided to do a little research.

This article cracked me up. This guy was on the search for the shake, and his commentary of his adventures were humorous to read, along with the pictures and commercials of McDonalds ads from long ago.

Whatever happened to Grimace, the Fry Guys and that Hamburgler???

and so, I read on.. laughing.. and now sharing. The link to the site/article is below, if you have a few minutes.

I don't even like McDs. Other than the fries, an occasional shake, and the yearly Shamrock Shake- just because.


"There is a significant Irish population in my town. There is a significant number of McDonald's restaurants in my town. Yet, there are no Shamrock Shakes. Not even during March. It's a fact that haunts me year after year, and a fact that doesn't process as such because, year after year, I hit every McDonald's in the whole damn city...just to be safe. As you might guess, this whole thing has become more than a simple pining for a good milkshake. It's a war. It's a life goal. It isn't so much about finding and devouring a Shamrock Shake and it is about just finding a Shamrock Shake,..."

shamrock shakes

Florida is sounding really good to me right now and not just because of the arctic deep freeze we have been experiencing for the past month (brrrrrr!!); although it certainly bolsters my desire!!

I just keep hearing about Florida.. family.. friends..epeeps. travel.. all these things that have been planting a travel seed in my mind; of course, not just Florida, but for some reason I am feeling drawn to it. Been there, done that, but would certainly do it again. Perhaps a little trip to the Keys, hmmmm ?

pack my backpack of essentials (book, undies, lipgloss), pack my camera and I am off to explore.

Lets see what develops..

I'm working on getting my passport as well :)

and while all that figures itself out, I am doing some local day travels, camera in hand- cold ass weather and all. Simply heading wherever I feel drawn.. life is good!

PS- Shamrock Shake time!

Twisted pooch


I can act out in my sleep, although most of the time I stay still. Last night I decided to sleep on my couch, not often do I do that- even though my couch is AWESOME. Its pretty deep, if you take off the cushions, not that I did that either. I just piled any extra toss pillows on the back of the couch.

Sometime in the night, I dreampt that I was sleeping on my couch and my dog was sleeping on the back of the couch (not that I have one). I reached up and scratched the furry pooch under the chin. In my dream and in reality, I moved my hand up and gave a good scratch. In my dream, it was to the dog under his chin. In reality, I gave the fringy toss pillow above me a good scratch on its 'chin'- which was the corner of the pillow. I woke to that and laughed. How could I not? Let me report, it is really bizarre to 'scratch a pillow under its chin'.

unless of course, I had (e:twisted) 's 'pooch/pillow'- :) then it would totally be reasonable !!

compromising positions


somehow, I end up like this anytime I encounter even the tiniest slope while XC skiing.

I still don't know how to get up after a fall. But now I am quicker at unlocking the boots from the binding :)

winter day

from yesterdays post:

ok. I'm feeling it (going outside to play), even if just for a few minutes. I can catch up on sleep later.



I fulfilled both 'tasks' as evidenced by a few pictures of some of the time spent outside. It really was nice to go out and not be frozen! Afterward trudging through knee deep snow, I spent the remaining moments of daylight looking out the bay window for a view of the side and part of the back yard. Joey joins me in watching the snowflakes fall before succumbing to my lap followed by my succumbing to his purring. I was only up for less than a few more hours before I fully fell asleep- straight through the morning. Weird yet enjoyable dreams were had.
