Warning: Completely Random Stuff

The new laptop is incredibly awesome. The more I play with it~the more I like it. Windows Vista, I like too. It is really nice being able to add something or change stuff without worrying what everyone else will think. There is a silly ladybug that walks all over my computers' desktop. She is good company.

Pandora radio is really cool. I am addicted. It is a little enabling though...I keep finding music I MUST buy.

There were extremely creepy caterpillars on my Crabapple tree last week. They had feasted on every leaf on two branches over night. I went out to see why the tree looked funny and it was crawling alive with spiny worms that had red caps on. Eeek! Rick sprayed them and they dropped like~snap!

This is the tree the hummingbirds like to guard the feeders from. The current guard is so picky he has taken to chasing off the Chickadees!

Rick and I quit smoking on July 6th. It has been surprisingly easy to quit but really difficult learning to deal with the everyday stresses of life with no crutch! I am so glad we never smoked in the house...it's a lot easier to quit and my home doesn't reek of smoke. The truck (however) needs to be detailed. Badly.

I love Mr. Clean Magic Erasers.

A bit of advice to those seeking employment...I know every other manager working here. Don't think I won't clue them in on what a rude, demanding ass you are.

Jessie's boyfriend has moved into a new apartment. He is just down the road a couple of miles now. Hello Matt! The kids are back in school and Jess is already loaded down with homework and theatre projects.

My friend Linda has a new kitty. She looks the very sister of Taco. Rzeznik looks like Taco, I mean. Not Linda.

Prostate cancer. My dad has it. That really sucks.

I find I have committed myself to three exchanges. OMG. Total Freak Out! Just kidding...they are all simple exchanges and I will have no problem stitching for them. I do keep seeing other neat ones going on and I think, "Oh cool, I should join..."

Ebay is dangerous. Stitchers with no willpower should not be allowed to visit the site.

The new issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine looks amazing~such cute Halloween ornaments! However, every place I check for it still has the August issue. Yes, I know it is still August but, damn...I want the new issue!

My hair is blond...this is how I think & write IRL with no editing.
