Fan girly sqwee! Vito has lent us (basically me) the full series of Avatar - The Last Airbender! So loving it. Said it many times before and I stand by it.

Now on to the good stuff. I have finished the scarf and am attempting to move onto the large back of yarn (more sqwee) N gave me.

Hey guys, just wanted to share this clip with you. It is awesome! If you're a cat lover you'll really love it. And if you're not you'll still find it amusing.

Internet Junckyard 3

The meaning of life.

On the first day, God created the dog and said: 'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.'

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?'

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said: 'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?'

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said: 'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?'

And God agreed again..

On the fourth day, God created man and said: 'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'

But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information.. I'm doing it as a public service..

knitting fun

My latest knitting project of left over neon colored yarn:

Two major things

1. I didn't get the hospital job... very sad about it, but after I sulk a bit today (and eat another frozen almond snickers bar) I'm hitting the newspapers, creigslist, various webpages in search for a job... wish me luck.

2. I don't get online for two days (Nickelodeon's Avatar - The Last Airbender marathon) and everything on the internets piles up till it reaches my ears! I have so many tweets to look threw (more entertaining then the emails I have to say). Why does everthing pile up?

Missing skittle found.

Two dogs got into our yard (not uncommon, just the one, but this time he had a friend with him). Generally harmless and I just put a leash on them and take them to their back yard. Neighbors are good people.

Anyways, I leaned over to unlatch the neighbors gate door and I hear the sound of an orange skittle falling onto the cement ground. My only guess is that it decided to attach itself to the inside of my tang top until that time.

Call of the search parties.

Harry Potter Stole My Skittle

Just saw Harry Potter 6 and have to say they did a very nice job with it. The didn't get into details like they have in the past and they did switch and move things around and take things out and put things in, but overall it was very well done.

Now for the matter of the missing skittle. Yes, a missing one. I was eating and knitting while watching the movie... when one skittle slipped from my yarn entangled fingers and plopped down my shirt. As you know it's human nature to fish after it... even though it's in public. So I dived in, annoyed that I missed a part of the movie. There was no skittle to be found. I practically took of my top (not really but I felt like it) I was searching discreetly under my tang top (I was covered by my button-up shirt I took with me so I would be modest). THERE STILL WAS NO SKITTLE!

It has vanished.

Great news: No animals were harmed in the making/filming of the Harry Potter 6 movie. Wish I could take the kids for the 5 o'clock showing... to find that skittle.

Weeding again!

I weeded again... and hurt myself in the process... now I'm chair-redden (verses bed-ridden). Got a lot of weeding done.

Here's the latest picture of Sammy. He hates the camera so much.

Despite hating dirt and bugs, both pretty much equally, I weeded the entire front yard. That's right. ALL OF IT. I did miss a few crab-grass-weeds but I'll get those later, the ground is being watered in that area and the dirt became mud, not something worth waddling into for just a few weeds.

The fireworks, while I've never really thought they were that big of a deal, were rather fun. Dave burned himself a few times and added lighter-fluid when one wouldn't start... I was so scared he would blow off a limb or something, but to his good fortune that was not the case. Breath easy.

I have to get this off my chest. SciFi is now Syfy. WTF? Why are they changing it now? It's an icon. SciFi with the "iF" things they do. WHY!!! *dramatic why*

Wish I had pictures for you.
