lol Ted crepusculars around 5 am or so too. I've also noticed dusk is when he causes most of his trouble by trying to knock stuff over. It's great the Bears won. At least the 49ers and Seahawks are tied in the division. I hope the Seahawks play better next week. I think the heat really got to them. I was surprised to see that it was so hot in San Diego. I usually don't have trouble finding pants since I'm pretty tall, but I have an awful time finding dress shoes that fit. Your dinner sounds really nice. What is corn hole? It sounds interesting. How was your day? Mine was alright but super busy at work. Had to teach a couple of people how to do something new, had tons of errors to log, disputes to handle, and a lot of my own policies to do. I barely finished. Have a great evening and Tuesday :)
I actually have no problem with going to the dentist. When I was depressed I never went so I have many years of catching up. Should be interesting to see the x-ray results. The teachers and school district had negotiations over the weekend that went until 3am. The news said the positive was that they finally sat at the table together instead of going through a mediator. Makes you wonder who the children really are in this strike.
dusty says hi wee willie *picks up a sqwerl wif his mouth and brings it to wee willie as a gift* is chasing lucy liu fun? I can help you then. I like to chase molly but she doesn't seem to think it's fun. I get a big party when I turn one year old??? wow, I can't wait! I wonder what a big party is. can I bring my mommy?
I was so happy the Marine was able to adopt Belle after her service time was up. If it weren't for the two rescue groups, it wouldn't have happened though. He's not the only one they have helped adopt their military service animal. I think that's wonderful.
The teachers are still on strike here. Received a call from work today to pick up a shift during the day at a local hotel. Apparently the Premier of BC is going to be there for a luncheon and they know people will be there to protest. First time in my life I have been glad to have a dentist appointment and can't take the shift.
Hi Syl. Thanks for the faves. :) No I haven't faved the one to HL yet. I'm ashamed to say I haven't been over there *in ages*. I've finally gotten around to going through my old LOLs and also sorting my faves into separate collections. Each project will take a while. I need to add regular time for HL into that mix. ++ We're hoping things continue to go well with Joonyer. Just today I saw him attack to of our others. It was a bit play attacking and a whole lot not. Need to have him neutered; hopefully he'll calm down a little after that. ++ Mark and I went to the fair together on 9/6 and I went by myself on 9/11. We didn't go back because I'd managed to see everything I wanted to and the one reason to go back was all the noms which, sadly, are all on my supposed-to-be-nonos list. So we stayed home, caught up on Doctor Who, watched "Saving Mr. Banks" (Mark almost bailed at first as P.L. Travers started out as such a bitch), and played D&D on the 'puter. So a good weekend. As far as doodads, I added to our miniature stein collection with a K-State Wildcat one, less than 2" tall; a no-longer available Disney enamel pin, Mickey in a Hawaiian shirt next the Disney Magic cruise ship (we were on it during its maiden year); an outside thermometer with Farmall tractor artwork on it for Mark's folks for Yule; and some metal signs, 2 as gifts, 1 for us. ++ I visited friends when they lived in Alaska (2001) but it was summer and we didn't see the aurora OR *any* orcas, one of my spirit animals - dammit! So much for the fjord cruise as far as animals went. Saw *one* sea otter, lots of puffins, and plenty of... elephant(?) seals. But the scenery was magnificent. Also, the towns all had tons of flowers in bloom to cheer up the short summer, but you're familiar with that as it's done in the NW, too. New to us, though; our climate would make doing it successfully be very time consuming and expensive. ++ Woops on your travel timing. Have a good time! Mark's work schedule IS changing a bit, from 5-6 days/week to 4 days with a possible 5th. He's one M-R and others are on T-F. So... 3 day weekends for him. ++ Thanks for the heads up on the copies. Grrr... Thought the ferris wheel looked familiar, but I hadn't seen the KKPS one. Good to get the right one faved!
