"Some People, I Swear..." (which must be said with the indignant scolding tone of an old Southern lady)

... for example -- Kanye West (who already has a pretty permanent place on my shit list, but is inching further & further down it) posing as Jesus Christ on the cover of Rolling Stone? But even better is the headline on "Kanye West Poses as Jesus, Says He's Addicted to Porn"... Sometimes the headlines alone are enough to keep me entertained. Yesterday, it was "Man Bites Passenger, Jumps Off Plane"... I guess you have to do that to summarize things, but the tooth-gnashing plane-jumper's story wasn't nearly as interesting as it sounded from the headline.

ION... I got a new computer @ home (thank you, Dell)! It's kind of sad how excited I am about it, but I love it! The only speedbump I have run into is getting my iTunes library from the old computer to the new one -- basically, I have said fuck it after attempting many different tactics & am doing it manually using my CD's, a zip drive, & some other fun little tools. But it's kind of nice b/c it's allowing me to weed out some of the crap I've let accumulate into my iTunes, & subsequently, my beloved iPod. Takes forever, but it's kind of cathartic, a digital cleansing of sorts. That, & maybe I'm just a tad strange.

FROG update (I know you were all on pins & needles -- b/t him & the pansies, I'm gonna bore any readers I do actually have to tears!). He was sighted again last night b/f I put my plant up to protect it & him from the cold. But I waited on him to go back into the plant or his little frog hole or whatever once the chill started filling the air. My pet frog, he's such a smart little guy. [wink, wink]

A "tad" is a bit more than a "titch." Duh.

Oh, have I been SOOO behind!" That delicious frog living in your -- could it be? -- Night-Blooming Cereus (sp?)???? What is the name of that plant that he's living in? Do you know? Because we have one and have been waiting on a night bloom now for YEARS and haven't gotten one and so maybe it's just not really that kind of plant. ANd plus, ours hasn't attracted any frogs,, and if you can't attract a frog out where we live then something's wrong.

Second ... an ANOLE! We have one too ... a pet ... remember George the Lizard? In the terrarium in my dining room?

Third ... who's having a big birthday .... I mean, not THE big birthday, but serious enough in it's place as your last year of 20-somethinghood. Plans?

later tater,

Apparenlty JP is not up on his tad/titch/tidbit terminology -- we still have some work to do on that one! Hee, hee...

I'm not sure what kind of plant it is that the frog resides in (I just call it an aloe plant w/ a Christmas cactus growing out of it, but it's not b/c I know that's what it is!)... I could ask Jon, I guess, since he did major in Horticulture, but it's better to just assume, right? If it is a "Night-Blooming Cereus", then mine doesn't bloom either, so don't feel bad.

No birthday plans so far. Have you noticed that they just aren't as fun the closer we get to 30? I liked that 21-22 year range much, much better!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry -- no Mac for me. Too much incompatibility issues. I'd rather stick with the problems I know that open a new can of worms on that one!!!

You Mac people are weird anyway. (just kidding, sort of)... ;)
