As I browse the internet on my laptop, my kitty likes to sit with me, sometimes on my lap between me and the computer, which requires some serious "typing with kitty on arms* skills. Also, sometimes she also likes to lick my hands while I type. :-) :-) :-)

A few years ago my brother took two LPs of my uncle playing saxophone and put them onto CDs. I hadn't really listened to them much before this week, but have listened to one of them for the last two mornings before work and I really like it. It's saxophone and piano and unfortunately I can't really read the tiny print that says what the pieces are (since it was reduced from LP size to CD size), but they are really nice and my uncle's playing is really beautiful.

I really am growing to love my apartment. I do wish it was bigger, but in a way, it's kind of nice having everything in such a compact space, and I have enough closet space that it's not really that crowded at all.

So, as it turns out, our world may be a giant hologram. Just thought I'd let you know.

Whip It!

I watched a really fun movie last night called *Whip It* that was directed by Drew Barrymore. It was a serious girl power extravaganza. It made me want a roller derby name.

A little homesick

I found this picture on the internet today and it made me feel a little bit homesick. Funny that. But, I haven't seen snow in well over a year.

Day 11: BWC

Part 4

Not knowing how much bigger the turtles might get, Fiona and Jack's mom and dad decided they should stay in the back yard for the time being. It wasn't too cold and it just seemed safer that way. While their dad swept up the broken dishes, their mom escorted the turtles into the back and then started searching for Soupy Sales. Fiona and Jack followed the turtles outside and everyone was so distracted, no one even noticed that they went outside without jackets or shoes on. In fact, no one noticed that they went outside at all. And, it wasn't long before they discovered that now the turtles were the perfect size to ride on. So, Fiona and Jack were riding turtles around the perimeter of the yard while their mom was lying down half-way under the house calling to Soupy Sales, who had retreated into its far recesses. They could hear the sound of broken dishes clanking and a sweeping broom from inside. And, when the turtles got to the part of the fence that was open and led to the woods, they kept going.

Day 10: BWC - Slight Change of Plans

Good morning! Well, I need to change my blog writing challenge a little. I've decided to try exercising in the morning and there's only so much time... My mission in starting this was to inspire myself to get up earlier and that mission has been accomplished, so I feel good about that. For the rest of the 30 days, the challenge to myself will just be to write something every day with no restriction on when it has to be done or how long it has to be. I can live with that. I really like this blog and I can hardly believe I've been doing it for four years. Is that possible?! Wow. I always think the most fun thing about having a blog is when I say something that inspires reader comments, which is why "Controversy Monday" and "Quiz Friday" and "Getting To Know You" have always been so much fun to me. But I also like that I can post pretty much anything, including a random story. No rules. I like that. And, I try to remind myself that just because people don't post comments doesn't mean they aren't reading. Well, I'm off to try a little aerobic hill climbing. Happy Monday. :-)
