A slightly better picture

Cheeky fella ain't he

for the oma's

for Oma

Dear Oma -

I forget that sometimes you use this to see how the Squink grows... he is huge now and I think he is going through a big growth spurt... I swear that some mornings he just looks taller!

So, here is a picture I took of him this morning, sleeping... he woke up at 4 am and so I put him in his corral with food and a drink and went back to sleep myself... I guess he did the same.

You know it is hot...

... when you are excited it is said it will be 109 F tomorrow.


It is no wonder...

... that pride is considered one of the seven deadly sins...

I think my person may come into question as I reveal that I am the "designer" of one of the top 100 ugliest myspace websites... really, I am proud.

A paleontologist in the making

Today, I was on the phone with an old friend when I had to interrupt the conversation to ask Squink to take the dinosaur guts out of his mouth...

You know the person on the phone is a friend, because he said "Maybe when he is older he will tell me what they tasted like".

I replied "Plastic". (Imagine if I had said chicken)

Can I say I was glad that Squink was not eating a coprolite, and just a plastic unreasonable facsimile of that which makes it?


So much fun...

I decided to do it again!

I got my Uber fabulous package!

My received Originally uploaded by Blair Necessities.

So, of all things I get a professional artist as my very first swap partner! It is all so lovely and my Blair Necessities tote bag is already my tote of choice for work!
And boy do I preen like a peacock when people ask me where I got it, and then tell me what lovely personalization it has and I have to say it is from my favorite City in Canadia (yes, that is how I pronounce it, on purpose, forgive me)... and a wonderful graphic designer from there does the work and it was a gift and yes I just may send them a card on the very special personalized stationary she made me.

rachael_h, I love it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Things I learned while on vacation...

Or that I will pretend to have learned anyway...

Although the plurals 'octopusses' and 'octopi' are acceptable, the word is of Greek etymology and its correct plural is octopata.

This, however, is what I really learned; "adult entertainment" in the parts north of me are questionable... sorry, but I am pretty sure there must be some interesting women in there!
