Friday. And Stuff.

I think I say this every single week, but finally it's Friday!!! Tomorrow night, JP & I are heading up to the Silver Star Casino (or "The TeePee", as my dad has dubbed it since it is owned by the Choctaw Indians) to see Ron White, a.k.a. "Tater Salad". I saw him about a year & a half ago up there & I laughed my ass off -- can't wait!!!

Oh, and another last minute update -- I'm going down to Belize (Ambergris Caye) a week from tomorrow & staying HERE!!! My dad & a hi-larious group from our church will be doing mission work down there, & since I couldn't leave & go with them for the first part (work commitments), I decided to bite the bullet & book the ticket to meet up with them for a little while! That place is beautiful, & I haven't been since my parents took me after college graduation in 1999 (oh, that sounds scary -- 7 years ago!)... I'd post a great picture I have, but Blogger is not cooperating. Oh well, maybe later.

When I got home from Prague, Jon had a gorgeous PURPLE petunia with sage in it hanging on my back porch as a little "Welcome Home" present. Of course, somehow I have managed to almost kill it. However... the other day, I went to go pull some pine straw out of it & noticed said straw was rather meticulously placed -- turns out I had a bird's nest in my plant!!! Since watering the poor plant obviously wasn't keeping it alive, I was gonna set it out to give it some sun today, only to discover that there was not supposed to be sun today (there was). When I took it down, though, I noticed 4 little eggs in the nest. It's a little House Wren (I scared her to death on accident the other day & she flew into my glass porch door, but she was okay -- thought I was gonna have to raise some orphan birds there for sec, though! Anyone know where I can find a good incubator?), & I just can't bring myself to mess it up until her babies are hatched, raised, & have flown away. I'm just gonna have to give it some sun tomorrow & hope the momma bird doesn't "fly the coop" because of all of my meddling!!!

[It reminds me of being little & finding wren nests in my grandmother's ferns & always being afraid that the little bird staring me back in the face was gonna shoot out & poke me in the eyes!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I was a weird kid.]

Okay, enough of my incessant rambling (I know what you're thinking -- it's never enough, right!?)... Everyone have a really nice weekend... I know I'm gonna do my dead-level best!!! I just read that Matthew McConaughey is yet a single man again. I'm on it!!!

Hey. I SWEAR I still read ... I am just so freaking lazy. And now to top it all off I am having to look for a full-time job since B is getting a forced transfer and we just want out of this stupid system. So that's my excuse. But I do still read.

later tater
