Ruby and I played Whack-A-Mole. Now I know this game is for 3 year olds, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Great for blowing off frustrations! Still, I hope Evan was joking when she said she was getting it for me for my birthday.
Dillon, not to be left out, introduced me to the gem that is Feed the Kitty. Not to be confused with Chuck the Chog. Oh to be so little and so easily entertained!
So I had a good time. It almost broke my heart when both the girls told me they don't see enough of me. I think I'm going to have to rectify that!

In better news, Zippy the Wonder Lemon is a freaking stud! I was backed into by a Caddilac this afternoon in the Hastings parking lot. The Caddy's rear bumper completely folded in on itself. Zippy didn't have a scratch. Oh yeah, today I'm loving that car!
Marlo, the next time you try to talk me into dying my hair I'm going to laugh...at you, not with you.

Yes, those are mice. That bucket they are in? That's my cat's food bin. I have suspected for some time that something was getting in there because everytime I get to the bottom of the bucket I find little black pellets in there, but I never expected to open the door to the closet and find that. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me back up.
I was sitting at my desk, checking my email and I kept hearing a rustling noise coming from the closet. Suki likes to play in there but I had a lock installed on the door about 4 months ago so I knew it wasn't Suki. Knowing it was probably something I didn't want to see I was doing my best to ignore it. However eventually my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to have a peek. I got up, unlocked the door and stuck my head in. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something small and grey hopping in the bucket. Of course at that point I screamed and slammed the door so hard that I knocked the bulleting board off the wall and onto my head.
For about two seconds I considered calling my father and not asking but demanding that he drive into town and GET RID OF IT RIGHT EFFING NOW!!! Then my cooler head prevailed and I realized that he'd probably just laugh at me. I calmed down, sat back down at my desk and continued reading my email. And then I got curious again. I wanted to know exactly what kind of grey furry thing I saw jumping in the bucket.
I open the door to the closet again, which at this point is again locked because, you know, that tiny little grey thing might just get out of that nearly empty bucket, sneak into the main part of my loft and nibble me in my sleep don't you know? And then I had the brilliant idea of taking a picture of whatever I found because you know, I live in a second story loft and no one's going to believe that I have a thus far unidentified grey thing in my closet.
So I see that it's this tiny little grey mouse. Seems innocuous enough. But then I notice that in the other corner of the bucket there's another little grey thing twitching and I realized that I have not one but TWO tiny little grey things in that cat's food bucket. TWO! MICE! IN MY APPARTMENT!
Les, the building maintenance man, is going to get a call about this. Just as soon as I quit freaking out.

About 5 minutes before I had to be at church yesterday morning I looked in the mirror and decided that I didn't want to wear the necklace I had just put on. As I was picking up my guitar with my right hand I took it off with my left hand. OK, actually I just tried to take it off. About half way through the motion I felt a shart pain in my neck and I haven't been able to turn my head since.
So. Last night I didn't sleep very well. No matter what position I layed in I was only comfortable for a couple of minutes before my neck started hurting again. I think I finally fell asleep around 4. You know where this is going.
I still haven't figured out how she did this but Suki crawled up into the bed somewhere down around my feet without untucking the sheets, snaked up the blankets next to my legs and then poked her head out right next to my face. I must have breathed right in her ear because I woke up to the sound of her ears flipping back and forth. Usually I find this sound to be quite humorous but at 4 in the morning? I think Cole rubbed off on her more than I'd like.
Before you ask, he has a nasty habbit of txting and waking me up at 3 a.m.
Update: I just realized that 3 of my last 5 posts are about one or both of my cats. I need to get a life.

Oh, and this picture is fitting because Suki is doing exactly what I'm going to be doing all weekend - LAYING IN THE SUN!!!

Let's start off with the first person on E!'s red carpet, Mylie Cyrus. I thought she looked like she skinned a molting fish and then bedazzled the bejezzes out of it. Also, you're 16! You're cute! Tyra Banks wants to turn you into her weird spawn! We get it! Could you please pretend that you have a modicum of class? Please? Yelling at Ryan Seacrest and compulsively chewing on your lip is not appropriate for the Oscar Red Carpet. What were you doing there, anyway?
Zack Effron, you looked like a greaser. Try shampoo.
Amy Adams is so cute I want to put her in my pocket and carry her around with me. And I loved the dress! Red dress with red hair - very brave, you rocked it!
Marisa Tomei's dress looked like oriental fans. I still haven't decided whether I liked it or not.
Loved the hue of Natalie Portman's dress. My mom thought it looked like Pepto, but I think it looked appropriately young and festive.
Ann Hathaway's first dress was stunning, but I could've done without the one she wore for the skit with Hugh Jackman.
Hugh Jackman, by the by, is a beautiful, beautiful specimen of a man.
Tilda Swinton, I feel like I need to say something, but what? Blah seems to be her norm. The scary hair and makeup she sported in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was quite possibly the closest she's ever come to looking human. Blush! Mascara! Eyeshadow! They are your friends!
Kate Winslet can do no wrong.
Meryl Streep looked fab.
Sophia Loren looked old. Oh wait, she is. I don't remember her looking like that in Grumpier Old Men though. Of course that was what, 15 years ago?
Holy craptastic, Bat Man! Angelina's ear rings and cocktail ring were gorgeous! As was she, as always.
Last but not least, the entire cast of Slumdog Millionaire made me smile. I think they and only they understood just what an honor it is to be at the Academy Awards.

1. Nickleback - Something in Your Mouth - It's about a stripped and yet I love it!
2. Jason Aldean - She's Country
3. Keith Whitley - I Told You So - for the record I think that Carrie Underwood's version is a travesty.
4. Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
5. Danny Elfman - The Little Things
6. Little Big Town - Boondocks
7. Lynryd Skynryd - Gimme Three Steps
8. Ashley Monroe - I Don't Want To
9. Randy Rogers Band - Kiss Me In The Dark
10. Lady Antebelum - Lookin' For a Good Time
Only 6 are country! Wonder's never cease.

It's beyond time for me to get back out there and start dating. Friday afternoon a guy that I've known for a couple of years called me up and asked me to go to lunch today. No sooner had I assented than he started making excuses, and I mean every excuse under the sun, that he wasn't going to be able to make it. He called me! I'm completely confused by this. Can someone please explain it to me?
Anyway, since I have today off and my spidey senses tell me he's not going to show for lunch, I made plans with Jen to have lunch, see a movie, window shop downtown, meet Heather for coffee and then grab dinner.
And now I'm off to work out!
UPDATE: Ok, so he never called. Which is a little weird because I just looked at my phone and realized that he called me 6 times on Saturday. Whatever. Not going to worry about it.
And the movie, "He's Just Not That Into You," is a renter. I thought with a cast like that it couldn't be anything but good but I was wrong. I probably would have a different opinion if it had been a half hour shorter. A full two hours to be beaten over the head with the same completely obvious relationship advice is a little much. Do yourself a favor; just add it to your Netflix que.
UPDATE NUMERO DUCE: I forgot to mention that while watching the movie I kept wanting to yell at the movie screen, "Grab your purse and leave!" or, "Shut up now and hang up!" or, "Kick his sorry ass to the curb! You deserve better!" Unfortunately you can't do that in a public movie theater. One more reason to just rent it and watch it at home.

See this one? Her name is Rory. Rory is not very bright.
I was headed to church this morning, intending to get there early so that I could tune up my guitar and practice my offertory before the rest of the band got there. Rory had other plans.
I headed down the stairs carrying my guitar. Rory came from behind me and ran between my feet. I tripped and fell down the stairs. My guitar came down on my right knee and instantly left a goose egg. I fell back against the stair treds and now have an enormous bruise on my back. It is black as black can be.
Thanks, Rory. You realize that I'm the one who feeds you and cleans your litter box, right?

These are the punks. Clockwise from top left: Ruby, Isabel and Dillon. They are all in their new Christmas pajamas. I think Evan snapped this picture right before they drove home. That's me in the middle. Don't stare to long. You might crack your computer screen.

Evan's husband is Kurt. They have 3 children, Isabel who's 6, Ruby who's 4 and Dillon who's 2. Her blog is http://westragang.blogspot.com/. They are in the process of adopting a little boy from Ethiopia. He will hopefully be arriving sometime in July or August. Kurt and Evan will be leaving for a week in June to go to Africa and visit the orphanage. Hopefully all will go well.
Evan is my rock. She's also my sounding board. We don't really have much in common other than shared genes. And even those don't show much. Still, she is my sister and I love her.

The not-so-basics: My ENTIRE family lives within 20 minutes of me. For the most part we get along, but like all families we have our moments. I dated a man whom I am still convinced is the love of my life for 4 1/2 years. We broke up in August. Everyone thinks I'm crazy, but there you go. I am currently obsessed with Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I'm doing at more of a 90 day program. Today is day 35? Something like that. I've gained 5 lbs and dropped a jeans size. Riddle me that one.
Obviously there's more to me than this, but it's a start. We'll see where this goes.
