District 9
Monday, August 17, 2009      6 comments

We saw District 9 Saturday night; for a change there was not sound during the movie - and after people just sat and talked about it until long after the credits had finished. The last time I can remember that happening was after watching SICKO. ... Read more
Why Cats Rule
Friday, August 07, 2009      4 comments

Cats have 32 muscles that control their outer ear (humans have six). These abundant muscles enable them to move their ears like radar dishes and pinpoint the source of a sound, rotate them independently 180 degrees, and turn in the direction of ... Read more

Why is it Raining in my Kitchen?
Sunday, July 26, 2009      2 comments

I just love being a home owner don't you? You get all those wonderful perks like foundations problems, roof replacements, windows that don't seal and now raining in the kitchen. And for the record, my kitchen is NOT outdoors. Mike an I... Read more
Scam Scam Everywhere a Scam
Friday, July 24, 2009      2 comments

Taking advantage of people makes me mad. Everyday at my post office I pick up and put in the recycling bins business cards left on counters that say: Work for Yourself! Make Great Money! No Effort! Part Time! Stay At Home! You get the ... Read more
Group Apology
Thursday, July 16, 2009      4 comments

I'm cheating and making this a group apology.... (though I owe Deborah one extended version as we have a personal challenge running) I've not been very active on the boards, forums, or challenges the past few weeks - and I've let some folks... Read more

My (ARRRGGHHH) Wonderful Fur-Kids
Friday, July 10, 2009      5 comments

I'm seriously thinking of putting these four terrors up for adoption! Here is the very short version of the past two days. Ecceles develops a short, but interesting intestinal problem. He solves the issue on top of my bed. On top of th... Read more
S-St-Ste-Step-Stepping
Monday, July 06, 2009      1 comments

I kill pedometers. Seriously. Because I'm up and down all day long, there's a tendency to reset the stupid things. So I look down to see how far I've traveled so far only to find 64 whole steps on the display. This is 4 hours into my day; ... Read more
Absolutely Brilliant!
Friday, July 03, 2009      2 comments

The complexity... I'm beyond awed. I'm in the arts field, and things like this make me proud to be a part of the community at large. This music video was shot for Sour's 'Hibi no Neiro' (Tone of everyday) from their first mini album 'Wate... Read more

The Cast, the Kids and Mom
Thursday, June 11, 2009      0 comments

So, I get the two meds into Leo last night, not a fun experience. This cat is very strong, determined and was seriously annoyed by this point in time. This morning I mixed them with a little wet food - much better - good old bribery. Then ... Read more

Well at 7:30 I got to go back to the vet one more time (that makes 3x today) to pick up Leo. He manage to break a bone in his foot. We think this happened on Sunday when he tried to pull himself up (climb) a board and it fell. I was st... Read more
Super Size Me!
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      3 comments

I FINALLY got to watch the movie Super Size Me (it came out in 2004). It's going to take me a while to recover from it. While I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about food and health, and fast food - in reality I knew SQUAT. I eat ... Read more
