Pictures, Rambling, Stuff

Chuckie, caught in the act of raiding the bird feeder, thinks the camera is some sort of nuclear missile launcher and flees:

Bye bye Chuckie!

Trillian is a bit strange. She likes to drape herself across the rungs of the barstools. Sometimes she uses rungs on the same stool, same level, sometimes 2 levels or 2 stools. For unknown reasons, The Prawn also stretches across 2 stools for a double decker effect:

How very relaxing. She is definitely harking back to her wildcat roots. :o) Such a sweet girl.

In the background, John is preparing something wonderful involving Chicken and Rice with Saffron, Peas and Paprika. Yummmmmmmmy!

Tonight we're watching Life of Brian. The littles won't get any of the adult stuff and we'll be able to refresh ourselves on whether or not the bigs can see it. Looks like the Littles are going to opt for Brain games on the 'puter, though.

Sparring was a good social hour for me, as well as a chance to watch all 4 kids continuing to improve.

Reading: The Ilearth Stone (Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, Book 2) and Star Wars Revenge of the Sith (on loan to me from a TKD dad and VERY good) as well as the last 3rd of Beowulf. I need to focus on 1 at a time I guess. Also writing 4 diff things with 2 more in the cooker. Oy Vey!

Listening to: Won't Ask Why
and tearing up unabashedly. *sigh*
Also Green Day, American Idiot.

No no... smolt is to smolder as folt is to folder. Neither of these will do! (Sad peanut gallery, this. I blast without replacement suggestions. I'll have to work on that. It's so much better to destroy and have a brilliant replacement. All the better for condescension. I have a thing for condescension ever since last night. Just ask Sheila. After a good dose of quiet in the car on the way back from the gig I started ranting like a lunatic for so long that Sheila totally cracked up and said she wished she'd had a tape recorder going.

Muahahaha!! :o) Blast away! I just NEED a word. I was having dissatisfaction with it, too. I think the whole pattern thing is going to have to go out the window. Though the one syllable thing seems to have impact. 2 seems lame - like there wasn't a word, and one had to be constructed. (snort) But I'm serious about making this word and getting it in the dictionary. Ever read "Frindle"? Great book! :)

Surely not your Burns Night thinggy? Do tell, or rant, or something. :) No kilt-flipping, then? *giggle*
