Yesterday I had somewhere between 5 and 10 ideas for things to post today. Now I can't remember a single one. So I'll just say happy birthday to Isabel and wish everyone a happy Halloween.

They have names!

I've named my frogs! The lighter colored one is Jose' and the darker on is Raule. I chose those names because every time I think of cartoon frogs I think of the one in the old cartoon with the sombrero and pencil thin mustache playing the guitar. I have no idea what that frog's name was, but he was obviously Mexican so I chose Mexican names. I now have 5 pets in 430 square feet. Good thing 3 of them are in aquariums!

New Pets

These are my African Water Frogs that are as of yet unnamed. Anyone want to make suggestions? Evan, I'm talking to your kids on that one.

Whoop whoop!

If I had a macro lense for my camera I'd show you that my Christmas Cactus is budding. In October! It bloomed for the first time last April so I thought it was an Easter Cactus but now I'm wondering. Anyone know how you can tell? Is it possible to be both?

$80 and many many processes later my hair is still...BROWN! But! It is now very close to my Mom's mousy brown/dark blond color. I somehow feel that this is a small victory because from here I can simply heavily highlight it back to my beautiful blond.

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 you, not with you.

Lighter...sort of.

So I tried lifting my hair color tonight but I didn't use enough peroxide. It went from dark brown to medium brown. On the upside, it's still in really good shape. I'm going to wait 48 hours and see if I can lift it to light brown and then another 48 hours to dark blonde, etc. So in about 8 days I should finally be my normal ultra blond self?


Sick of the red. Going back to blond. Ev thinks I should leave the red on the bottom and just do blond on top. Thoughts?

I couldn't believe how much snow was on my car this morning! There was at least 4 inches. SO NOT READY FOR THIS! I'm from Oregon. We're a warm weather people.

Going to my happy place. In case you're wondering my happy place is a warm, sunny beach.

Where did the weekend go?

It's seems like I left work an hour ago, but it has actually been two days. Where'd the time go? I'm looking at my weekend to-do list (yes, I make to-do lists. Go ahead and laugh.) and I've accomplished only 2 of the 19 things on it. It's 7:37 on Sunday. I sure hope this isn't a sign of how my week's going to go!
