Pearls before Swine

Jonah got me completely hooked to this daily comic in the papers. Just had to share today's installment...gotta love those crocs.

On a different note, I got to meet an old buddy of my dad's from way back when they were kids and made movies together. My entire life I've heard about this guy, and the short movie that he and my dad made together called, "Very Grimm Fairy Tales"...my dad's copy of the film disappeared, and so I thought that I would never get the chance to see it...and now I actually own a copy of it thanks to Rufus who brought it for me. My dad, his pal Rufus and I had lunch yesterday and I got to watch the two of them become friends again...I was so proud of my pops :-) and Rufus too...they had had a falling out about 28 years ago, and only within the last year started connecting again, and now they are once more friends. Makes me glad that I stuck my nose in enough to prod my dad along the path of reconciliation.

Sea Monkies!

Y'all have to check out the sea monkey themed online art show on the blog below, quite excellent...my favorites have to be Kamala's piece (of course) but also the Frida and sea monkies piece:

    The Seattle Seahawks are going to the superbowl...for the very first time ever! Yesterdays game was the first time in my entire life that I have ever know the Seahawks to step up and get the job done...it was awesome! And even though I am not a football fan...I still watched the game...I felt like I had to as a born and bred Seattlite. And I will admit that it was pretty exciting :-)

    I love the BBC, there are some weird news articles sometimes...this one was just awesome, it tells of a friendship between a snake and a hamster:

    Bekah's coming to visit! And she'll be in Seattle in a little over a week! yay for friends coming to visit! Oh no, this means I really have to get working on the list of must see things for her...hmmm, I wish it was summer then the list would go on and on. Speaking of summer, I had a dream last night that it was summer and I was going to the outdoor movies in Fremont with my princess chair. I got there and was waiting in line, then I woke up. Blah. However, the days are starting to get longer...when I got off work yesterday I caught the last bit of sunset which could be seen through a crack in the clouds. It was glorious! Mainly for the reasont that it was 5:30 and there was light! woohooooo!

    The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.

    I am finally getting my act together to purchase a new hoodie from neighborhoodie.com but am a little stuck deciding what the hoodie should say. I was hoping some of you all could help me make up my mind. So let me know what you think, these are two possibilities:

    Penguin Ninja

    a wedding in the air

    So I just found out that I have a second friend getting married...the wedding is being planned for this summer in Hawaii. On the one hand it's exciting for Amy that she's getting married, her husband to be is a great guy so I'm not worried for her at all :-) but on the other hand it's a bit depressing that another friend of mine is getting married! *sigh*

    The cool part is that I've never been to Hawaii, so this would be a great opportunity to go! Now I just need to figure out if I can get my budget to support a trip like this. hmmm.

    There's a lot going on politically lately from one scandal to the next...most important is that the "I" word has started to be thrown around, and even though I think the chances of Bush being impeached are slim, it's still good to know that this country is finally starting to look in that direction instead of forever letting Bush get away with everything. Of course, now that Bush's actions are being scrutinized that still doesn't mean that he won't stop from doing what he does best...which is make a mess of this world. Prime example is if the rumors circulating come to be fact, mainly that Bush is looking towards attacking Iran:


    Isn't it 2008 yet?

    Happy New Year

    2005 is gone, welcome 2006. I ended last year and started this year with Heath...saw Brokeback Mountain on Saturday and Casanova on Sunday. Fun times....and I would recommend either of those movies. Brokeback was good in an intense emotional kind of way with really incredible scenery in the mountains...and Casanova was a good light funny movie that had no real substance but was fun to watch. Besides that I have been thinking more and more that I'm fast approaching my 25th birthday, and am thinking that I really do need to get my nose pierced, finally. But I have a few months still to fully decide on that. Nothing else really to report..am a bit tired and back at work..but I promised JJ that I would post. So here you go chica!
