Bon dieu!

I come home from a full day at work to settle down to an evening of school work and paper writing, when I see my fuzzy guy pacing through the living room, anxious and flustered looking.

As with prior situations, (e:theecarey,149) I have learned to investigate when Joey is displaying warrior-like behavior. Although he appears to be pacing, Joey is actually sizing up the situation, trying to figure out a way to get to the window. An airconditioner hinders his efforts.

So I think to myself, "Bon dieu, what is in the window, Joe?"

And then I look.

The Domesticated Warrior himself..

Creatures unearthed by the torrential downpours today?

I find myself face to face with this attached to the outside (phew!) of the living room window..something big and green and leggy:


image

image

and a fully unwelcome visitor.. knocking on my window, peering in..grossing me out, making me want to pack my bags and leave-- until I realize it is on the outside and I conclude that I am better off staying put.. 'cause its out *there*.. eek!

(why oh why terrorize me like this? *shiver*)

image

image

I really think that if Joey had the opportunity, he would have successfully tackled these bugs. I have seen an increase in his bug-slaying prowress this season. Thats ma boy.

Did you know that moth guts are powdery?

Need a paddle?

heh, maybe it was the huge full moon..

maybe the stars are realigning themselves..

maybe it is something in the air,water, koolaid, blue cheese..

maybe it isn't anything other than a temporary funk that the peeps are in.. Would that be an (e:funk)?

anyway, if you happen to find yourself in Shits Creek.. worry not, you can now buy yourself a paddle:

"To love what you do and feel that it matters - how could anything be more fun?"
- K. Graham


Stumbled across this Og guy earlier..

"If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labour.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions."

Og Mandino- "The Greatest Salesman in the World"

I might be able to swing a couple of those. I like the part about remembering goals and plunging ahead. It can be difficult when you know you are the only one holding yourself back..

Gettin' mooned

Oh wow.. the full moon is so bright tonight!
From my living room window it appears to be a spot light out there.

Must go look outside!

I took a few pictures with my phone. Lets see how they turn out.


ok, so they look like white bright dots... but you can kinda see the trees and the moon..

oh yeh, it was only yesterday, but I forgot that I took a few pictures while at Deleware park. What a lovely night :)

image

image

Saving the best for last.. (e:leetee) brought cutie pie, Ava, and her human, Kierstin (sp). I snagged a pic of the cute pugs mug.

back to work- back to bed

First day back to work after a relatively long break. bah.
I am beat and feeling the weight of the world upon me.

I know it is temporary and I will be bouncing again after I am back to "normal" on a more semi-regulated sleep schedule. As is, I had to wake up this morning at the very time that I have been going to bed pretty much throughout the entire break.

see why I am beat and fizzled out like flat pop?

I tossed and turned all night. And the thunder/lightening didn't help. On a positive note, what dreams I did have were freakin' fabulous.

Even with liittle sleep, I woke up super bouncy and happy. And I was super bouncy and happy all day at work..the kiddos are so cool..and I adore my coworkers-- it wasnt until the drive home that it all caught up with me. Which brings me here, with eyelids propped open with toothpicks...

yeh, so the thought of doing anything that i would like to do/need to do seems awfully heavy on my mind.

Maybe I'll try a short nap afterall- so I can feel more like my energetic, tackle the world, cheerful self. :)

Grab your dick and double click

oh, how risque, haha

anyway, I am cleaning* up the house and I have this little tune starting to play in my head. First it is just the melody, real quiet-- then it gets louder and eventually the words are there.

And I think, wtf?

Guess its better than, Debbie Gibson, Out of the Blue, being stuck up there.

hehe

So I recall what (and when and who) it is from and am now sharing it with you. You too need to be singing this song- while at work, haha

(its a video-- you gamers might dig it)


  • cleaning the house is not my favorite past time. I don't make too much of a mess, but I try to avoid dishes at all costs. I hate dishes.. HATE THEM! I am ashamed to say that I have thrown out a few in my past just because I didn't want to wash them. (as in ten years ago, not today- even though it is tempting!)

or, which this would be fun.. like in a movie where this guy sits on the roof and shoots at them with a rifle. "The dishes are done, man"
Which movie was that from.. Adventures in Babysitting or Dont tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead? I think the latter.. I think the same guy was in both of those movies.

Anyway, I would do just about anything to get out of doing them.

Oh, and since I am stuck at home and full of silliness..

I have a weird kinda-crush on Sully.. yup, from Monsters Inc. Well, not *that* kind of crush.. but regardless, I am not sure where this comes from. I think it is his fur.

I had to come out about it sooner or later..

image

image

image

Shake it Sully..
image

I am so weird, at times.

Gotta get my car back, haha.

Hope the sidewalk chalking goes well tonight. Wish I was there!

post 200- Now with Pics

waiting for a haircut, brought my issue of Scientific American -as well as p:mobl, to keep me amused. Got my geek on at the Cingular store, next I am heading to look at computer goodies. btw can someone name a good database book for sorta-beginners? plz.

Thanks in advance.

OK.time for chop-chop. Will post pic later!



pics taken with Razr phone. Uploaded through computer not pmobl .

Care's hair is shorter..
image

I now have bangs..
image

The hairdresser blew out my hair, so I am curious (dreading?) when I wash and let it air dry, just how short it will be. 'Cause curls go BOING!
image

image

No matter, it was needful and I just said- "do whatever you want"

funny, coming from a girl that less than two years ago had hair down to her butt; past it, even..

Ah, well who needs photo software when you have a razr that takes weird pictures on its own.

I know you're salivating

It kinda freaks me out to hear the coyotes howling when I pull into my driveway at 4am. Its so dark and creepy out at that hour. Of course, I didn't leave any lights on for myself. So I walk up the dark driveway thinking that something is going to try to eat me. Licking its lips, waiting to pounce.


I say, you stay on your side of the woods..

and I will say on mine.



yeesh, now the birds are chirping.. good night er, morining..

you know what I mean :)

razr photos

Well, these were some of the pics I was trying to post from my phone. I am impressed that I managed to finally get them off my phone and send them just about anywhere I want.

all from motorola razr. (e:vincent) you can finally check the picture quality (or lack of) with this phone. (i am curious as I upload these as to how they will look.. )

Some inspirational bathroom graffiti taken during an excusrion with some peeps to Broadway Joes. uh, yeh.. Dont get lost in the profoundness that follows.

Taco? hahaha

I am a void deep within your conscious

Go, Doug?


From an art gallery. I liked very litte of what they had on display-- very Home Interiors-like. So when I saw this painting tucked away in an upstairs studio, I took a picture for the irony of the moment.

some 3am "test images" that never made it. *blowing kisses* at the strip late last night (er, morning..)

Furry little friend--taken a few mornings ago at PMTs

ahhh, the little purple bodies in my Mixed Seafood Pad Thai at Saigon Bangkok. I think this one is going to be a blurry pic.
...never again. I just couldn't do it. Well, actually, it was
(e:pyrcedgrrl) s entree, and she forced me to bring home the leftovers. Little purple legs interspersed amongst the rice noodles... yuck.

dig the shirt?

My absolute favorite dog in the whole world, Princess. I took this picture just a couple of weeks ago, I guess right before my friend had to 'put her down'. Very sad. I am glad I have this great picture! I had just been rolling on the ground with her...
image


thats about it!

ps my post-its now come through as text messaging too. cool.

going mobile

ah ha!

6 mobl posts are noted above.

I have three actually posted.

One of them was identical, so that would account for four..

so somewhere, out there, of the 50 imagage/text tests with my phone, two more may have registered.

where are you?

update: when P:mobl is updated/edited (such as I decided to add a category through here as an afterthought), it bumped up the count. And last night I edited 2x, taking my email signature (all those squished qoutes) off some of the posts. ta da! ok, so other attemps are lost in space. hehe

(this little issue revolves around myself being almost perversely tenacious between 12 and 3 am- experimenting with and figuring out my phone: finding native email app, exporting photos, setting links, etc. I figure it all out by playing. Anyone else can probably refer to their manuel or user information on the phone/cell company web site. I am doing well; I just need to tweak something that I am doing/not doing. But I will get there!

'cause, I'm going mobile, baby.


ok, back to making it happen.
