Shoe pic's are on the work computer.
So here's some random stuff:
I hate bugs. All of them. I become a pathetic fearful dork around bugs
Suddenly a bug no bigger than my pinky finger nail can completely defeat me.
I suddenly become 2 years old crying for my daddy.
Ok, I like butterflies and lady bugs. But that's it.
It made me feel better to know that a friend who is a fire fighter freaks out about bugs. If he does and he doesn't fear going into burning buildings? Is my fear so illogical?
Ticks are going to be my downfall.
I am becoming a Trekkie. It was only Star Trek Next Generation but I have expanded to Deep Space Nine and Enterprise.
I'm a geek, what can I say
I am a Target whore. I admit it. Addicted. I get lost inside.
That and Target gets a ridiculous amount of my monthly income.
I have decide that the Ipod is the answer to corporate cube farm
I noticed today that 9 out of 10 cube monkeys were working away with their Ipod's going.
This cube monkey included.
Chicken stir-fry from Trader Joes is another good meal in a bag.
I'm already in love with their Gorgonzola Gnocchi
Among other things.
I can't wait till I get old enough for a house coat to be ok.
They have pockets.
Perfect for my Ipod.

Happy Monday everyone!
My weekend was quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. I read a lot!
Ok, I know that I avoid politics for the most part in this blog. But I noticed something this weekend.
A satelite television provider is running a commercial that features Bush - or a comedian impersonating him anyway. And he makes the usual idiot ass of himself and his vocabulary.
So, I have to ask you: How bad does a presidents ratings have to be that a huge corporation that is service based isn't afraid of alienating enough customers to affect their bottom line?????

My shoe shot from the other day had Gary the Potter asking what my tattoo was. Some of you have seen these so bear with me..................
Then, last summer I decided to get my phoenix. I was burned when I was young and had to have skin grafts. To most people they aren't noticeable but to me some days it is all I see. So, I wanted to put something beautiful there. And I decided that a phoenix was perfect. Rising from the ashes to be reborn stronger and wiser. Much like a lot of the things we experience in life. I look at some of the things I have done and been through and I am proud of how far I have come. Now, grant you, I have had a very blessed life with a wonderful family always there to lean on. But some things we have to do, we have to face, alone. My divorce was the biggest one. But even something like moving to Minnesota was a huge change in my life. I took a leap of faith and a leap of heart that I was doing the right thing. I knew I loved Hubster with all my heart, he is my soul mate and best friend. But, still, I left behind my job, my friends, and my family to be with him. I went from being surrounded by safety and security to a complete unknown. But I never looked back, I never doubted what I was doing and I jumped, with eyes wide open. And so I marked those moments of my life with my phoenix.
So there you have it. My art. And the stories behind them.

First, I owe you a pair of shoes from yesterday. My apologies. I totally forgot to start the WWC post with my Peek-a-Boo shoes. Shame on me.
And, since this is a new post: Here is another pair of shoes. Also with a Peek-A-Boo toe.
Ok, let's see:
We have been promised storms, thunder, lightening, hail. And I'm not complaining mind you. I'm grateful we aren't flooding or being plagued with tornado's. But come on! I would like one good thunder boomy this spring. We haven't really had any to speak of. At least not at my house.
I love the thunder storms so loud the house shakes. I love standing out in the rain with the hubster watching the lightening flash all over the sky.
oh, here's a few more pictures from my trip to Como. Sorry for the repeat of the sloth but dad wanted to see what other pictures I took so I figured it was easy enough to put him in the slide show.
I am hoping the weather is nice and I can head to the Minnesota zoo one day. Call in sick to work and go spend a day with the animals. Right now I'm avoiding the place because they just opened a huge new exhibit. Russian Grizzly Coast or something like that.
We have family stuff planned for the weekend. Well, it IS father's day. Oh crap! That reminds me, I have to mail my brother's First Father's Day card. I mailed dad's and my Uncle's but totally forgot his. Dang..............
Today at work I was working on a presentation. And the word "City" looked wrong. And the more I tried to figure out how to spell "City" the more the rest of the words looked wrong. Has this ever happened to you? Hell, at some point "the" looked misspelled. I hate that.
I think we will have chicken chili and cornbread for dinner. Trader Joes makes a really good chicken chili. They also have this fantastic gnocchi dish. WOW! Best gnocchi I have had since my Great Grandmother's homemade stuff. It's in their frozen entree section. It's Gnocchi al Gorgonzola. YUMMY! Oh, and their new vanilla wafers aren't bad either. Bits of vanilla bean right in the cookie.
Can you tell I skipped lunch????
Though my co-worker did bring me a piece of her homemade rhubarb pie. That was mighty tasty as well.
Not a very good lunch though.............
Ok, I've rambled enough. Cheers!

So to break her in I went to Como Park. And over 100 pictures later I got a perfect WWC picture and then some. So the first slide show is WWC and the second is the camera's first shots.

There are only two radio stations I listen to on any regular basis. The Classical Music station or Jack Fm which pretty much plays nothing but 80's hits.
So to say I am not hip on the latest music is an understatement.
I find my music obsessions in the oddest place. Not the radio like most of the world. No, I find them on TV and in movies. You know, those songs they throw in the background when they want you to "feel" something. Or set the mood.
So I jot down as much of the lyrics I can and then do a lyrics search till I figure out who it is.
A while back I discovered: Mat Kearney because of the song Breathe In Breathe Out being used on some show I was watching.
Then, while watching Bionic Woman I fell in love with Sia's Breath Me.
Hmmmm, I just realized both have "breathe" in them. Coincidence? Totally.
And now for my latest Love Affair: Thanks to Graham Norton.
Last Friday night he had One Republic on. From the second they started playing I was in love.
So Saturday I headed to Target and picked up their album.
It's FANTASTIC. I love it. And the more I listen to it, the more I love!
They have a Coldplay sort of sound.
It's been playing non-stop on the iPod. The hubster laughed when he saw the cd sitting on my computer downloading to my itunes.
Really, this is one of those rare albums that I can honestly say doesn't have one bad track on it.

Not much going on in Newt Land. We have cloudy skies, warm air, and the threat of rain. For the next several days. Sigh.......
Oh, I totally forgot to tell you guys! On Friday the hubster and I were heading home and I said that we should take the dogs to play ball on our walk. The hubster said, "oh, I was hoping you could clean out Pearl's kennel" I of course say "Ewwww, I don't want to do that, there is so much hair." The hubster than dropped the news, "Oh, well, B is coming to get her at 7:30. They sold their house" Well hot DAMN. I have no problem staying home and cleaning out the cage of chaos. So, bless her big black lab heart, Pearl is now home where she belongs. And my house has returned to what little semblance of peace and quiet we had before the "Pearl Years". At least it seemed like years................but actually only a little over two months.
And now for some pictures for ya!
