I woke up and started typing around on the computer then Jasmine comes downstairs and starts pinching me. Not mean hurty pinches, but more like she was testing the thickness of meat and sizing me up for some cannibalistic feast. I just kind of looked at her. She said something like "All those vibrant green shirts you have" and then probably said something else, but as the epiphany came to me I suddenly thought about leprechauns.
HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY
p.s. no leprechauns were found in the backyard.

|A very very untrue story...
Margie Slack who, of course, is a well known hippie music artist from the late 60's and who still has not dropped dead gave birth to a tiny girl in the mid-80's.
Margie turned out to be a terrible mom and much to the surprise of everyone hired a young mother walrus to take care of her neglected daughter. Luckily, the mother walrus just weened her scary little walri off the teat and was ready for a new challenge.
Although, indeed a peculiar move, the story of a walrus taking care of a young girl did not even make a single headline. This could be due to the fact that the very same week the most-time-spent-on-a-unicycle record was broken by ice cream mogul Pierre Jackson. Every eye was glued to the TV set and as it cast a warm glow on America they shoveled pounds and pounds of rocky road into their mouths.
The young girl grew up into a woman and is now working at OceanLand as a server in a restaurant near the "Cuttlefish Experience". Let us wish her well on her way through ballet school.

|Megacon and such!
Just this last weekend we were at Megacon. It was a pretty good weekend for us and as usual it is always nice to meet lotsa fans and people watch.
This year we had smallgirl
come and stay with us since she was attending the convention also. She was at the artist alley section right next to tigerpixieart
. I'm sure they chatted about all sorts of dorky things.
Lou Ferrigno wasn't there and there weren't any other "celebrities" I was interested in seeing really.
Jasmine's mom and Stepdad are visiting tomorrow and staying with us til Saturday. Should be fun =)

I just found out the Heath Ledger has died from another LJ friend. This whole thing is very sad.
Here is MSNBC's report:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22788914/
I am still hoping all of this is a joke. Current Mood: sad

|Cough cough and such.
I have had a cough ever since I left Kansas City and I just couldn't get rid of it. I decide to go to this place called the "Minute Clinic" at a local CVS pharmacy. A Nurse practitioner examined me and my symptoms I have bronchitis and an ear infection!!
Now I have meds and stuff so hopefully I'll get off this yuck.

|Shows with re-creations and reenactments
Ever notice that the characters that are reenacting scenes are often twice as attractive as their real life counterparts?
Should the "real life" people be offended or flattered?

|STATE of emergency!
Central Florida had a "freeze" last night. Basically at about 3:00amish it touched 32 degrees and then bounced up again about 6:30amish.
The radio people seemed frantic and the TV news advised us not to have any skin exposed while outside. There was talk of snow in a county just north of us. The gym I was so worried about being overcrowded had half the usual crowd and all because of a cold snap.
Michigan would kill to have this weather now.
Florida is nutters. Current Mood: cold

|I'm Posty McPoster today!!
I fear tomorrow for one special reason. The gym will be full with crazy New Years Resolutioners! They will be doing strange awkward things with free-weights, using their arms on the leg machines and be wearing all sorts of Nike gear.
They will be gone in February. Current Mood: scared
I just got back from Sweeney Todd. I liked it! I used my AMC gift card!! Thank you, Aunt Jean =)
It is kinda like a cross between "The Crow", "The Count of Monte Cristo" and a little bit of singing & blood thrown in.
Last night we watched "Skinwalkers" which wasn't good enough to enjoy or bad enough to make fun of.
|New Year and such.
December was a busy month for me. As most of you know I am Jasmine's monkey and December is the month where she makes me dance the most. In the end, I think everyone received their packages and all were happy in time for Christmas!
The last week of December was spent with our family in Kansas City with various gift exchanges and way too much food.
I was able to spend lots of time with nieces and nephew. I taught Cielo how to play checkers and use a basic number line. Chris and I took Theo to see "The Waterhorse" it amused Theo slightly, but kind of lost him during the more dialoguey parts. Theo and Ellie also took turns beating me up and pummeling me. They would kick, punch, sit and do everything in their power to injure me. It was fun =)
It snowed a lot while we were there (it has been a long time since I have actually experienced snow). So we went sledding, had spontaneous snowball fights and built a snowman.
The sledding was a bunch of fun!! First we went to 3 stores and all the sleds were sold out. The we remembered that about 7 years ago we bought sleds and left them at Jasmine's Dads house, so we got 'em. We had two types of sleds: a disc and a normalish plastic sled. We found this steep hill by this Jewish temple and we were off. We kept flipping over and getting faces full of snow. It was pretty funny =)
We went to the Nelson-Atkins museum of Art and ate at the pretty little inside courtyard. They put up a new expansion to the Nelson and it was pretty interesting. I often look at the frames as much or even more than the art itself. So many pretty pieces have crappy frames.
The night before we left we watched UFC and drank beer and stuff =)
Now I am getting ready for this New Year I guess...

I have been to the post office so much lately. ::whimper::
So much so that they hand me over the key that makes the gate open and close. My job the other day was to let people out by opening the gate, but not let other people in 'cause it was past 4:30.
"Sorry, we're closed" I would say.
"Do you work here?", they ask.
"No, I just live here. Gonna get me a cot set up in here soon I s'pose"
Other than that I am all caught up on the "new" Dr. Who series! Yay, but yet boo since I have to wait for more.
I have been playing SUPER PAPER MARIO and it rocks!! My friend Brian just got SUPER MARIO GALAXY and it is powerful pretty!
Thanksgiving is coming and then my birthday!!! I love my birthday!! Then Christmas....YAYYYY I'm gonna make some tasty Rum nog!!
=P Current Mood: Wuh?
