Talking Cats

I've seen this before, but not in this particular way. The original is just these two cats meowing at each other, but this is cuter. Watch, you'll love it.

Just heard that mystery writer (and daughter of President Harry S. Truman) Margaret Truman has passed away at the age of 83. Mom loved her books, and Bebo liked a few of them too.

Oh, and our winds are really high (up to 50 mph gusts) and my internet is in and out. Sheesh.

Spam in the Sky With Diamonds

Auntie Anne’s Birthday celebration. (So, do you think she’d like a new schlong?)
Raise a monster in your pants. (Oooh, keep it caged, will ya.)
My back (It’s all because of that monster in your pants)
Reach out and bone someone. (Don’t you touch me with that thing)
Hey! Do you want to make huge money? (Put Viagara on it?)
Tomorrow we are invited to Ingemar’s birthday. (Sorry, I have to clip my toe nails)
Your new schlong will win more prizes! (Bobbing for apples?)
Fastest way to get out of debt. (Oh, believe me, if I had a big schlong I’d be making a lot of money.)

Heath Ledger

Stunned. That's the only way I can describe my reaction to the news of Heath Ledger's death at the age of 28. What a loss of a remarkable talent. It was in 1997 that Bebo and I first saw Heath in a short-lived TV series called Roar. For those of you unfamiliar with this show (and you really should have watched it) here is a montage from the series.

They say he was found surrounded by sleeping pills. I hope it was an accident, that he didn't mean to overdose. He had just finished filming his role of the Joker in the new Batman movie. I feel sorry for his little girl.

In other news, I have an apartment. A cute little 1 bedroom with a fireplace! I've always wanted a fireplace. I move the weekend of March 15th.

Monday, 'nuff said

Glitter Graphics & Comments

I made a mistake tonight. I went back and read all of the entries on my old Alzheimer's blog. I thought I could do it, you know it's been a year. I thought I could step back and read it dispassionately. That's what I get for thinking. I bawled like a baby. Why did I do it, you might ask. I received an email from someone who had come across the blog and who was looking for some answers. She is now the caregiver for her mother. I said what I could, then went back and read the blog. Just shoot me now.

I spent most of the day culling my books. I have two built-in bookshelves which I obviously can't take with me, so I needed to get rid of some books. Four boxes and two bags later, I'm done. No, the Shalvis Shrine was not touched. There is only one thing that would make me touch that - if Mrs. Hugh Jackman were to come over and say "I'll give you my husband for your Jill Shalvis books" I might have to think about it - long and hard. I love you Jill ... Oh, and there were also all those books I brought back from RWA intending to give them away on the blog. Then I realized I didn't have the money for postage ...

Did you know Bubba farts when I pick him up? Why did I tell you that - because everyone should be warned.

No YouTube today - thought I'd spare you.

Have a great Monday everyone.

The Long and Writing Spam

Just wanted to say hi. (Now you’ve done it, leave me alone.)
Oh my goodness … your penis is BELOW average size! (It’s supposed to be … I’m a woman.)
Gradually your dick will grow larger! (Lie, lie, lie Pinocchio)
Oh my God!!! Lovely imagination! (Thanks, I try. But compliments aren’t going to make you more welcome here.)
Gain great size and force for your willy! (Could I fight off burglars with it?)
… and keep it. (If I had a willy, you can be sure I’ll keep it.)
Your neighbors have lost their alarm clock. (Don’t look at me.)
Look what I have found!! (What are you doing in my backyard?)
The most beautiful timepieces. (Shhhhh, don’t let the neighbors find out.)

Go Speed Racer

This is for Tori. Racer X from the old Speed Racer series.

I *heart* YouTube.

I've started doing a little packing, mostly weeding out of books since I can't take them all with me. Don't worry, the Shalvis Shrine will be untouched. Anyway, the books I'm packing up now will go to Half-Price books because they'll give me some cash for them, and I need that.

American Idol starts tonight (since everybody knows I'm writin this on Tuesday night) and I can't wait. I love the audition parts. But I have a problem for Wednesday night - it's up opposite Ghost Hunters International, so I'll have to tape GHI. I hate that, espcially since there's nothing I watch on Saturday nights.

Received my order from Amazon and I can't wait to get to it, but I still have a stack on the table next to my big ol' chair that I need to work on first.

That's it for me. I hope everyone has a great Wednesday. And yes, Spam will be back on Friday.

Race Bannon

Since Tanya couldn't remember Race Bannon from the old cartoon Jonny Quest (I'm talking '67 here people, not the newer version), here's a little reminder. Talk about your Alpha male. This is actually more Bebo's lustbunny than mine.

Also, I've written another review on Isn't It Romantic. Go and look.

Not much to report on. The Cowboys lost *screamiing* so we're out of the playoffs. But they did what I really wished for - that they improve from last season, and they did. They won the NFC East division. Next year guys. Next year.

Just a Friday

I'll be back next week, honest. If you're wondering what's going on (like you haven't been by this week) then go here. Otherwise, enjoy Hugh as host at the Tony Awards. Have a great weekend.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, read the blog below. A few answers about "The situation" - mom's will left the house to us equally. My brother(the executor) says the estate can no longer pay the insurance or house taxes, neither can I. My brother gave me $100 a month while taking care of mom - there was nothing else he could do from Missouri. The estate gave me $7,000 when mom died. I am mad, but at the same time a little resigned. I may have found a home for Neely Shae. Another answer - I can't afford four cats, nor would I take four of them to a one bedroom apartment. There's a small part of me that's kind of relieved. No more watching the house fall down around me, no more worrying about who's going to mow the lawn, etc.

Anyway, while I've been contemplating everything, I've discovered YouTube. So here's something else to look at.

My World has fallen apart

I don’t know what to say. Some of you have been aware of my situation with the house, others won’t know what I’m talking about, but I’m too devastated to go into it. My brother informed me tonight that I have until the end of February or March to vacate the premises. I don’t have a full-time job, so no means of support. I have to get rid of one of the cats. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t feel like blogging right now, so will be gone for a few days. I hope you understand.

I Love You Spam, Spam, Spam

In your account in less than an hour. (Should be plenty of room, there’s not much else in it.)
Separate yourself from other men. (What’s the fun in that?)
I like that they found a model who doesn’t quite look natural in the face. (Are you talking to me?)
Big rod will win you a perfect sexual reputation! (I’d settle for an imperfect one.)
This is NOT a trial – you’ve been waiting for this all year. (Hugh?)
Quick way to enlarge your ding dong. (I don’t have a ding dong!)
… and keep it. (well, now that you mention it, if I did have a ding dong, I’d like to keep it.)
Don’t let your dream mate pass you by. (He will if he sees my ding dong.)

Surprise, it's me. I was just messing around blogspace and found a couple of quizzes I liked.

You Belong in Dublin

Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.
You're the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl... or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.

Didn't I always say I wanted to go to Ireland?

You Are 34% Bitchy

You're a pretty sweet person, and you're definitely not prone to bitchy outbursts.
Sometimes, though, you can't help thinking mean thoughts about people. But at least you don't act on them!

Well, unless I'm PMSing.

You Passed 8th Grade US History

Congratulations, you got 6/8 correct!

I'd better, afterall that degree IS in history. But I want to know which ones I missed.

Your Linguistic Profile:

50% General American English

25% Dixie

10% Yankee

5% Midwestern

0% Upper Midwestern

But I'm a midwesterner raised in Dixie? And what's General American English?

Oh, and Happy Birthday Lis!

Books, Books, Books

I was blessed with an overabundance of book gift certificates this holiday season. Everyone knows that I don’t have money to buy books, so they took pity upon me. LOL
Anyway, a co-worker gave me a GC to Walmart, where I bought three Blazes:

One Wild Wedding Night by Leslie Kelly
My Guilty Pleasure by Jamie Denton
A Blazing Little Christmas by Jacquie D’Alessandro, Joanne Rock and Kathleen O’Reilly

Then I won a GC for (waving at Ames) and my cousin also sent me one:

The Ex-Girlfriends Club by Rhonda Nelson
Kidnapped by Jo Leigh
Feeling the Heat by Rhonda Nelson
The Black Sheep and the Princess (Unholy Trinity, Book 1) by Donna Kauffman
Built by someone named Ames
Sexy Devil by Sasha White

Someone else sent me a GC to Barnes and Noble (waving at Olga). The B. Dalton at the mall is going out of business and everything was 50% off, and since they are owned by B&N I was able to use the card there:

‘Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy by Leslie Langtry
Sex and the Psychic Witch by Annette Blair
C.J.’s Fate by Kay Hooper (a reprint of her first Loveswept)
Born to be Wilde by Janelle Denison
Double Dating With the Dead by Karen Kelley

I also won a GC to Borders (waving at Dennie) which I used to buy my 2008 Date Book, I really rely on these things.

But I still have 3 GC to Borders left (waving at Bebo and my sister). One is for the new Kay Hooper book, Blood Dreams, which comes out this month. The second for Small Favors (The Dresden Files, Book 10) which comes out April. The third – for whatever comes up.

So, what’s on your TBR pile?
