Mes Chats

I've a thing for close up photography. I can't explain why or how I got interested in it, it's just been something that's always interested me. Especially the types of shots where there's a bit of an abstraction to them.

Today I spent some time taking photos of my cats. Maya loves getting her photo taken, she will pose and pose until the cows come home. Winnie on the otherhand is scared of the camera, hell she's pretty much scared of everything. For every five or six shots of Maya I get maybe one shot of Winnie.

Yarn

So how annoyed do you think Niels would be if I made him hunt for yarn shops while in Germany?

Cuz ya know I'm going to have to buy some while I'm there. How can I go to Germany and NOT buy yarn.

Seriously.

Germany.

Yarn.

Oh yeah baby.

Happy Feet

My new sneakers came in today. I was long overdue for a new pair, the ones I've been wearing were starting to get holes in the bottoms. And with the trip coming up I decided that if I didn't want to walk around Germany with holey sneaks it would behoove me to buy a new pair. And
they cam in today. I put them on and remembered why new sneakers are sowonderful. I can't wait to wear them to work tomorrow.

Work's been quite busy, trying to catch up from being gone for two days. And I'm sure no one read my email saying they needed to get paperwork they needed processed to me by COB tomorrow. So I'm sure once monday comes EVERYONE'S going to have an "emergency" that they need me to help them with.

I'm starting to feel much much better. I'm not blowing my nose every 30 seconds, but maybe every hour or so, which is nice for my nose.

Someday I hope to have a more sophisticated blog where I can have a separate link to guide readers to my photos. But I don't have that kind of money and I'm not that web savy. So I'll just prolly continue to post my photos in my daily posts for now.

I don't have too much else to report on, since I'm just coming out from my hole. I hope you're having a wonderful evening.

Kicking My Ass

I'm home.

I've not been this sick in years.

I went to bed at 7pm, that's right 7pm. Got up at 7:30 to get ready for work, and I was all ready to leave the house when a wave of nasty sweaty hot flash came over me.

Lovely.

I called into work and went back to bed and got up about 10 minutes ago. I've not slept this much in years, and let me tell you, I know how to sleep.

I've missed 3 days of work in the past 2 weeks because of my back and now this stupid cold. And I leave for vacation next week. Not good at all. I'll be doing work over the weekend to attempt to catch up. The only good thing about bring work home is that I can do it over the course of the weekend & I can be in my pj's.

I'm going to go eat soup & then go back to bed. Meh. Talk to you all later.

I'm Sick

Wah.

I've a cold.

I've had this cold since saturday night, although I could feel it coming on friday night.

Saturday night was Mikey's 30th Birthday dinner. We all went to Cafe Asia in Arlington & ate yummy yummy food. I had Curry Laksa soup hoping it would kick my cold out. Unforunately, it didn't.

I spent of Sunday and Monday in bed.

I left the apartment yesterday to go to the chiropractor. He made my back all better. He commented on how suprised he was that I was still able to walk. Yes my back was that bad. I'm going back tomorrow for a follow up. I love the chiropractor, so I'm not sad at all that I've to go back.

Now to get rid of this cold... meh.

Postcards From the Edge

If you would like me to send you a postcard from the land of Deutche, send me your address and I'll hook ya up.

Now for another photo.



Taken from my bedroom window after the "storm" last night. (If I could figure out how to change my template around the photo wouldn't have had to be shrunk so much.)

I promise I will start my posts again about how much I hate the Bush Administration and how much I think he sucks ass soon. I needed to take a break from the news, it was beginning to kill me on the inside.

Needless to say I'm looking forward to going to Germany and telling people that, no I did not vote for him and yes, I don't know how anyone in their right mind could have, with all the bad things he's done.

(DID YOU HEAR THAT GONZELEZ YOU SUCKY ASS EXCUSE FOR AN ATTONREY GENERAL?? I SAID THE BUSH ADMINSTRATION SUCKS ASS!!)

Nothing Exciting

Nothing exciting to report. Although two weeks from today I will be in Germany! Huzzah!!

My back's still bothering me, I can't wait to go to the chiropractor monday.

I leave you with a photo of the socks I'm making for me.
