I has a flavor

spent a better part of my free time on this site.

(e:leetee) you may recognize it-- or atleast you will eventually find your user pic if you dare look through the 100 plus pages of cute and funny pics. :)

random examples of macros posted at this site:

















anyhoo, I got a kick out of it. Good brainless time waster :)

there are a few sites that host this sort of creativity. The Cheezburger one is primarily cats-- lolcats but also loldogs lol--whatever the case may be.
so if feeling inclined to make your own..

The Mulch Diaries

I seriously have nothing else to write about.

The pile

What I typically been looking like upon return home..
Those are bare arms, and thats not hair!!

my pink watch is now reddish brown, along with everything down to my toes.

my shirt used to be white. and yes, thats mulch and again, not hair :X

yeh, the shower is caked with mulch particles. The mulch is a reddish color and looks like blood rinsing from my body. yum.

anyone recognize this bug?? it really loves the purple flowers.. and me. I tried to get a clear pic before it zipped off.

last weekend of July

I'm about to lay out 13 yards of mulch. This should be a trip-- or atleast one hell of a work out. I aim to start bright and early tomorrow as there doesn't seem to be much to entertain me late into the evening hours tonight. A walk, some reading and then perhaps early to bed; unless something else comes up..

Yesterday, I spent time with Dana at Starbucks. We plotted mid winter get- aways ( lil warmth and sunshine). And lusted over thoughts of wandering around NYC, which I aim to head out in the near future, if I can. We also spoke of possibly heading to the Adirondacks this season for a couple of days- and staying with her Grandmother (?) This would be, Back Bay, if I recall correctly. There is the main house then the guest house and bungalow. Very cool place-- havent been there since the summer I was turning 13. WOW! The building that this Starbucks is in, is a hotel, had a fire alarm go off and we had to evacuate- for me, it was mid order. I wanted my goods before heading out, but that didn't happen. I stood pining away for my drink as we waited for the clear to go back in.

Later on last night, an impromptu visit from Lynn led us to the usual silliness and deep life conversations that typically come with us hanging out. She had called me just prior to to coming over with the comment, "I'm leaving Damian". Which I quickly retorted, "awee. *pause* Cool, can I have him?" followed by giggles. She's always trying to get rid of him (jokingly) and offering him to me. Or when she is being rather mean, I offer to take him as well. Or when he wants to get rid of her for a day, he tosses her my way. Its funny, really. So I knew when she said she was leaving him, that she meant that she was coming over to see me and would be staying the night, given the time. They've been together forever and I see them together forever more. They balance each other well and I am friends with both of them, so its a huge bonus.

Today, some outside work, chilling with friends, screwing around on the computers trying to figure stuff out and then some more outside work- including window washing. Did I mention how good I am at that? haha. Not a bad day at all, but not too thrilling, either.

Looking at everyones veggie plants growing, I am still kicking myself for not putting in at least a few veggies. I'm telling myself- next year for sure! In the meantime, I hit up one of the local farms, I'm loving the tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries right now.

Well, before it gets to dark, I'm going back outside for a bit. The chirping birds are kind of relaxing, a nice back drop while I settle my nerves, bouncing thoughts and so forth.

I could check to see whats going on amongst the Regatta folks. I figured I would have wandered down to see the yacht races today, but the day didn't work out that way. I havent really heard anyone with my being right down the street from the action. The evening is just beginning and that is sure to all change..

Hope all is well and that the Garden Walk and after-gathering at PMTs was splendid!

Balls of Fury and Meat Loaf

Ok, I really want to have all of my blogs in one spot. New ones not as big of a deal, as its easy to cross post. But, as I searched through some MUCH older online ones, I would like, i think, to import them here. Can we do that? haha. Oh man, IO havent looked at these in a couple of years (heh, since joining this addiction, estrip) and WOW and weird and everything else!

I went to see Meat Loaf last night at Darien Lake. Had good seats, parking and all that. It was entertaining. I knew quite a few songs overall. I really enjoyed the band, especially the saxophone. I could listen to the instrumentals forever. Darien Lake is no longer owned by Six Flags, I wonder who the operator is now? I forget that Darien Lake State Park is down the street a bit. As a teen a few of us would camp at the theme park and then when not bouncing from ride to ride, we'd head to the state park and go play in the sand and go swimming.

Speaking of swimming, I really wanted to go today! I've been so freakin busy and the timing hasn't been right these past few days; but its all good. This morning I had an appointment in Lockport, which took longer than thought it would. Not a problem as I usually have a book and a pad of paper (and pocket PC) to entertain myself- but it kinda threw me off for the rest of the day. Afterwards I made an obligatory stop at Starbucks and then made my way home. I wanted to hit up the canal for a walk and wander around the art galleries, but that had to be put on hold. Next time, for sure. I pretty much got everything done that I had planned on today, other than swimming. I think I will pretty much start the day in the pool tomorrow, if I can :)

other random bits off the top of my head:

  • Celino and Barnes are together again. Just saw a commercial with them.

  • Ive learned that I have mad skills in window washing that I never knew I had, haha

  • July is almost over :( and "back to school" signs are everywhere :(

  • I'm eager to venture back to Manhattan- going to make it happen sooner rather than later.

  • Level Regatta sail boat race this weekend- I'll probably wander down and see whats shakin around the village.

  • Would like to go see some movies although its hard to sit still..

From the makers of Reno 911, is a movie about 'illegal underground table tennis' starring Christopher Walken and George Lopez. As a fan of both, I will be eager to see, "Balls of Fury"when it comes out at the end of August.

I just love Christopher Walken.. ha

In the meantime, I will try to get out to see The Simpsons Movie, Sicko and Transformers. Still havent seen Die Hard 4- as much as I am tickled that yet another one came out, I am not necessarily inclined to go see it at the theater- not full price anyways.

Thats it for now! Happy Hump day!

Car stuff

I'm finally bringing my car to the shop tomorrow. I have been monitoring it and driving it very little for about the last two months. There had been a couple of things that I narrowed it down to, which were confirmed through conversation with my mechanic. Nothing that couldn't be driven with, but staying close to home as opposed to my regular jaunts was advised-- at least until I officially got car into the shop!

So that will be tomorrow. I may have continued to hold off but I noticed a leak, pegged it as transmission fluid, found the source- a rather crusty tranny line- which is an easy fix-- fantastic! Basic maintenance for the most part, well, maintenance for a 16 yr old car with 207,000 miles. It really needs a thorough tune up.. and I doubt I was penciled in for one. As is, I am being brought in immediately. So in the morn I'll head out early and bring a book and a cup of coffee for the wait.

I've been looking for an alternate car on and off for about a year, but not with any sort of determination. A choice of a couple of cars are lining up, which I'm getting excited about. All older, which is what I'm after along with comfiness, great engine, lower miles and price. And 4 doors that actually open, ha! Oh, and #1: has to have metal to stick all three of my (e:strip) bumper stickers to!

alright, so thats that. .. and one day soon I will be able to come into Buffalo on my own accord.

Have a good one!

Perception of Beauty

(e:pyrcedgrrl) sent me a link to this video, and since she hasn't been around estrip much lately, I'm snagging it and putting it here. I think its kinda neat-disturbing-fascinating. No surprises really, but a reminder that there is a lot of work that goes into the final "product".

Comedic Dreams

Comedic dreams

The details are fuzzy, but there is one clear scene in my dream sequence that I remember and it really cracks me up. Normally I would awake in terror and tears if I dreamt about being married. This dream left me in a fit of giggles. Emotional progress, I suppose? So the elements were bizarre, as with most dreams. My husband *cough*, was Tom Cruise (hey, I have no idea where this was coming from!) and resembled more of a younger Brad Pitt (damn, this is sounding so cliché), the dream had been going on for awhile (fuzzy) and at some point we ended up at a very busy and loud art gallery. The pieces of work were interactive, contributing to the hustle of the room. We were walking around together when Tom took a phone call and wandered off to find a quieter part of the room, about fifteen feet away, with view, sitting on a block along a wall to my right. I then proceeded to join my friends, Dana and Kate. (the latter, I don't actually know in real life) We sat on a bench along a partial wall to view a tv screen mounted on a main wall just a couple of feet in front of us (I wish I remember what we were looking at). Kate was to my left and Dana on the other side of her. Dana and I chatted, with Kate interjecting short comments occasionally. My attention was broken from them when I heard my name- I looked over and it was Tom, still on the phone where I left him, and although he called out to me, he returned to the conversation, and I could hear, "my wife carey..". Un phased, I turned my attention back to my friends. Dana was chatty and Kate sat with her arms crossed looking and acting peeved. Her comments became shorter, "you just love that don't you" with a bit of a sneer, (and some other comments that I don't recall, but were in line with that one). I was completely confused by her words (we hadn't seen each other in a few years according to my dream) and calmly declared that, "I heard my name, why wouldn't I look?".

Skip to after the event. Dana and I were trying to figure out what was wrong with Kate. Then it dawned on me that, "oh shit, that is Toms ex". (why oh WHY did my dream take this form?), I guess she was feeling rather scorned. So that part of the discussion dropped. We continued to chat about stuff, and apparently Tom and I hadn't been married for long because I said, "the Scientology thing hasn't come up. If it does, just check on me once in awhile to make sure my eyes aren't all glazed over"-followed by an impression- eyes rolled back, half closed, acting zombie like.

We cracked up over this..

More or less, end of dream.

I had plenty of other dreams, really good ones, yet I don't recall enough to say so.. yet THIS I do?! The thing is, I don't follow any celebrity crap, other than what is mentioned on (e:strip).. so who infected my brain with this? Hmmmmm?

Then humorously, ironically, I woke to a message blinking on my laptop, "marry me beautiful", somehow I think he's serious. Anyway, none of this has been on my mind, but wtf was that all about? heh

And now for Adventures in Spam Mail..

Before it was a slew of "you are sole heir to a ton of money" sort of SPAM, then a bunch of SPAM with subject line beginning with "re: blah blah blah"m trying to look real now its moved on to:

You received a greeting card from a colleage
You received a greeting card from a school mate
You received a greeting card from a partner
You received a greeting card from a classmate
You received a greeting card from a family member
You received a greeting card from a worshiper
You received a greeting card from a friend

some say, "e-card", many have different sender names, but it appears to be all the same. Not sure where it would go and I am not opening it. The first time one came through, I wasn't sure what it was, as I am sent ecards regularly, but they always say who its from- not a general, "from a friend". But I'm sure that will be next in the spam bag of tricks...
