^^^ yeah, I was just thinking the same thing. We have a big cat too- about the same size- the sweetest, and most indolent, cat you've ever met. He's like a lumbering bear.

She thanks you to remember that she is not sweet, that in fact she is the Mistress of Evil in this household.

^^^ wow- what GREAT shots! The first one says it all, BTW. We have a (skinny} tabby that has a cute expression too- basically possessed- by what, we don't know, but we're sure there's something/someone in there.

Something tells me that your kitty isn't indolent.

I'll be having the same soon. Someone at Brandy's work forced her to try some, and now she loves it. For 6 years I've been trying to get her to try sushi, with no luck.

I should have just tied her up, and forced it on her. It's worked before

I just got an email with a suggestion that we do the Maine Island trail in sea kayaks. The note indicated that most of the research has already been done and Sept 08 was the target.

Any one with any experience here?

Eating popcorn, went to see a band tonight, VERY disappointing. I stayed for a few songs, but when they played Wooly Bully, I chugged my beer and left, ughhhhhhh! 40 year old crap, who needs it?

Maybe a blanket Dalphin?

Going to head out with a few friends to consume just a small amount of alcohol tonight. (I'll likely stumble home to a friend's apartment, while making sure no one drives or rides home.)

Cheers everyone!

Well I just cruised into work this morning, small headache from the allergen count being high this morning, but the cold air felt good on my lungs. Nothing helps wake you up better than cool air on your body in the early morning. Got to see the sun come up again this morning. Just wish I had a camera. It also is too bad that I wont see the sun again all day today. I will probably catch it again just as it is setting.

As pathetic as it sounds, I'm sitting here hoping for a responce from the guy who I collided with a few weeks ago.
He didn't have full insurance so only my medical bills are covered. He has to fork the rest of the money out of his own pocket. Of course he virtually had a coronary when the quote arrived from the bike shop. I've come up with a compromise which I think he should take. I've got a quote for a much cheaper bike which is more practical for my commuting. It looks super ugly, but I love it. Fingers crossed.

Good luck with the new bike there giantcfr1.
Personally, I think the guy owes you an exact replacement, but if he can't swing that, then get the best you can.

Just finished breakfast...I've got to cook this again sometime...a florentine omellette and some mixed fruit on the side.....delicious and nutritious.

Funny how most have no idea what the cost of a nice bike is today. I could buy a motorcycle for what each of what my bikes cost.

I was planning to go for a ride today, but it's cold and rainy so I think I may stay in and make some Guinness cupcakes to take with me to my friend's place.

But I am missing some required ingredients, so I guess I should head out to the grocery store...
