He has some serious Cattitude. Especially towards my camera.

This may be one of my very most favorite pictures ever. I love the details. the keys are in focus, Punk is asleep, every hair in focus.... no extra scenery in the background. And just so sweet.

Phooey. And Harumph. Just for good measure.

Hey that didn't work. Damnit. Oh well. back to flickr for a bit, I guess, cuz I'm really too lazy right now to try to make it work and learn stuff. My head hurts. think it's connected to that weird lump??
Hey, did you know I could do it this way? I certainly didn't. I thought I had to go through Flickr and make each picture a separate post. Is this new or am I just a moron? Oh well, anyway.... look at my pictures. Do it. Do it now.

Remember when I said I was gonna make all the cheesecakes in the book I bought? Well, I've tried 2 recipes so far... hoping to make another tomorrow... This is my favorite of the two tho, it's a frozen Peanut Butter Cheesecake, with chocolate sauce. It's like a giant Reese's. Nom nom nom.

It's that time again...

That's right... I downloaded my camera a few days ago... so following the customary procrastinating, it's time for the downpour of uploads... did that make sense? IT DID?!?! Well, I'll try harder to make it less clear next time. So prepare yourself... and remind me to come up with a cool title for the cycle of procrastination and blog updates later.... (did that make sense? it didn't? good, i was hoping to make you as confused as i am right now.... ) Haha, I hit my head pretty hard last night and then forgot about it until I touched a tender bump on my head this afternoon... so I think I might be a bit loopy today. Oh well, deal with it.

Heartfelt Thanks

Happy Veteran's Day. It's never enough, but today is the day that we say thank you to those who have given a portion of, or perhaps their full, lives to protect our freedoms and the American way of life. Maybe we don't always agree on the fight, maybe we don't think agree with the methods, but we should always stand behind our troops. I don't care if you are against the Iraq war, the Vietnam war, any war, I don't wanna hear any crap about our men and women. They have left behind their homes, their families, their other jobs, their free time, their lives altogether, just because our country asked them to. When I go to work and hear people complain about their jobs, today I'm just gonna punch them. Because we have it good because someone else is willing to help by taking the bad. So shut the fuck up and be grateful.
While he was referring to something else, I think Brian in Cedar Rapids said it best when he said "I live in the best country on Earth. Where else would people I don't know do this for me?"

So thanks Daddy, Chris, Grandpa, Mikey, Dewey, Michael, Anthony, Donovan, Yvonne, Denny, and everyone who has served, is serving now, or will serve in the future. We don't deserve you, but Thank God we have you.

NOM!, originally uploaded by woodstocklsnoopy.

Just quick note... Look how big and still cute my baby is getting! He's been remarkably calm for the last day or so... I hope the weather is just changing or he's growing up. I am a little concerned that he might be getting sick... but maybe the nastiness (you can thank me for not explaining what I mean by that) is just cuz his body is changing and that it will be soon time to give him adult food instead of kitten chow.
He's getting pretty round, so I worry about over-feeding, but you can definitely tell when he's hungry... and I don't want him to be uncomfortable...
Just so cute, even when eating the pants I was currently wearing... well, cute in picture... sharp in real life....

The Krave... I krave it...

I never do these things, but I'm bored and I just got my first cell phone and it is AMAZING, so I'm gonna do it. And I guess you are supposed to tag people... so... whatever. tag, you're it and there is no homebase.

OK, Mobile Phone quiz:

1) what color is it? Grey back, clear cover.

2) Who is the first person to come up under M? I think Mom. she may be the only M I have on there.

3) Who is the last person you called? Andy? I think... he's the person I contact the most...

4) Who was your last missed call from? um.... some guy I don't know... his phone number is one off of mine... so I have no idea why he would call me... but I called back and confused him too.

5) Who is the second person who comes up under A? I'm not sure I have anyone under A besides Andy. Wait, I'm wrong. Andy is the second person, since it's alphabetical. Amanda is the first.

6) Who is speed dial #2? I don't have any clue. I never set speed dial. Unless you count the In Case of Emergency as speed dial... then 1 is Andy, 2 is my dad and 3 is Sharon.

7) Who is the 3rd person who comes up under J? I only have one J so far. It's Jamie. I've only had my phone since Monday....

8) Who was your last received call from? ummmm... I'd have to check later (I don't bring my phone to work) but maybe Coonrad? I think Coonrad.

9) Who is speed dial #3? Nobody.

10) What is your background? I haven't changed it yet, so just the standard yellowish art. I kinda like it tho. When closed, (and locked) (the front screen is a clear touch screen) the background is a red artsy screen with a shimmering lock on it

11) How many text messages are currently in your inbox? ummm... I just cleaned it out again last night, cuz (after 2 days!!) it told me I was getting close to full, but i think there are like 43 in there now... or something like that.

12) Who is speed dial #1? Really hung up on speed dial, huh? No one is on my speed dial. Since i have a touch screen, speed dial would probably be more complicated than just going into contacts anyway.

13) What does the 5th message in your inbox say? i dunno... will have to tell you later.

14) Who is the first person that comes up under B? um, well, I only have Bobbi in Bs, so probably Dad. haha.

15) Who was your last text message from? unless I've gotten one while I am here at work, my last was from Andy, last night telling me goodnight. I did get a mobile IM last night that I didn't get until this morning... I do think I dreamed about my phone beeping tho...

16) Name every person you have text messages from: Well, I cleaned the inbox last night, so I think they are all from Andy, one from Kate and 2 from Verizon... but before that I had Andy, Sabrina, Kate, Jesse, Jamie, Verizon, Lisa... maybe more that I'm forgetting.

17) Who do you have the most received calls from? Um... Sabrina might be the most calls, since Andy knows I am in looooove with texting on "Louie" (haha, so when I got my phone I told Andy that I was now in love with "Louie" and now he thinks that's what I should really name my phone... I gotta remember to bring up the subject that he touches "Louie" too... and that he loves to play with it...

18) Whuy is there no 18? Is there some unwritten rule to these things that says you must leave out at least one question when you make them?

19) What does the 6th message in your Outbox say? Well, I erased most of them last night.. and I think I only had like 2 saved... but I texted right before bed... so the last one probably says goodnight to Andy.

Who is the first person in your phone book? Well, it has the ICE at the top in red... (and those names are highlighted in red in the contacts list too) but I think my first specific person is Amanda.

21) Who is the last name in your phonebook? Will Knapp. well, voicemail and all that jazz is in there too, but he's the last person.

22) Do you have a camera phone? Yes.

23) Who is the last person under G? Nobody is in G.

24) What does the first text message in your inbox say? I have no clue right now. I'd have to tell you later.

25) Where do you usually carry your phone? In my pocket. Occasionally in my purse... but VERY rarely... I like it to be close and accessible...

Why doesn't this thing ever as more about the phone, like what do you have or something? For the record, I have the Motorola Krave ZN4. And I looooove it... highly reccommend it.

I'm a crappy Blogger

I'm sorry. I'm a crappy blogger. I have a ton of stuff happening in my life, but none I feel I can share with the world. I'm all tender and prickly at the same time right now. Maybe I can be human again sometime soon. Here's hoping, huh?
