Soon to be a picture post

Yes, soon, this spot will be held by a picture post. My new camera reveals that I am still very much a ham, still love taking self-portraits proving this, and still, IMHO, am totally cute.

So happy Christmas is over, looking forward to New Years Eve (is it New Year's Eve or the way I wrote it first?).

Today I'm pleasantly tired, gently hungover, and grateful that my car did not spin around in circles just now, in the slippery snow.

Ah, winter. Ah, beer (I so am thinking "hair of the dog", but my son has a friend over and I think that would just be wrong...).

So once I get my camera working and pics downloaded, I'll post some pics! Hooray for self-absorption!

Happy 50th post!

It's OVER!

The semester from hell is over.
Except for that paper I got an extension on.

Please note, today is for hangovers and movies. And hopefully a nap.

"I need some fucking Whimsy"

"I need some fucking Whimsy" is my reasoning for wearing the bright pink scarf I've got on today.

Finals Day. I plan to be at Ale Asylum for happy hour, we'll see if I make it there (I've been up since 2am after an early night in).

Hey, it *just* occurred to me that I could hit Gomeroke tonight! That is a very tempting idea. We'll see what I think if I'm still awake that late, lol.

Do not think rough-housing will end well

Never, ever, rough-house with me unless you want to a) hurt me and b) piss me off.

Because I *will* get hurt and I *will* hold a grudge.

You have been warned.

New Post / Inka Heritage

Man, I've not done much of anything but sleep lately. Been sick, getting better, still feel like hell.

One thing I can do is rec a restaurant: Inka Heritage.

Check out their website. They've a gallery with pictures of many of the dishes. The one with the egg and the fried plantain is the Lomo Inka Heritage, which Palmer got, and that was tasty. The plantain in particular was very delicious.

I had the Lomo Saltado, which was very very tasty.

A nice place to bring folks from out of town, take a date or treat yourself. Yum!

OMG, I'm getting another cat

My kitten (okay, she was a teenager at 14 months, a young [cat]woman), died Thanksgiving morning 2006, and we've thought about getting another cat. I think the "poop in a box" + vet bills (having to put a cat to sleep on a holiday? expensive AND devastating) has kept me from feeling as though I really wanted another cat.

But this? This is really too much to miss.

Kitty Wigs.

Oh yeah.

I think it's too late in the semester to work on adopting a cat from school (and by this time in the semester I'm too crazy to even consider it), but now I know, I need to share a wig, er, my heart and home, with a cat.
