Too bad I don't know Mary Beard better, I bet she could help... She's one of those people who just intimidate me by being in the same room, though. So many braaaains...

    Ace! Donuts! Yum!

    10s. Hope the puppers feel better soon.

    Mr. Michael Cat has balding ears right now, but that's due to allergies. Every spring and fall his poor kitty head gets stuffed and his ears itch (and thus he over scratches them). Mr. Jon Cat just sneezes and has the occasional coughing jag.

    Kricket, may today be the day!

    And I'm outa here for a while. Day job is Buuuuuuusy! Just taking a quick break for lunch.

    Guys,

    I bought the new Justin Beiver song because the music is so catchy!

    *Hangs head in shame*

    Also I have to take one of the dogs to the vet tomorrow to figure out what the crap is wrong with him.

    (Okay, so I have Britney, Metallica, the Rogues, Disturbed, Cobra Starship, Enigma, Black Crows, and SR-71 on my favorites list.)

    I hated the Beiver's previous songs, but the music on this one is really pretty good.

    MrBugz would be annoyed I shared, but he secretly rocks out to the Beebs too. Much to my sadness and head-shaking.

    And for the record, "sans pants/no pants" does not mean "starkers from the waist down."

    It means "only boxer briefs."

    Just sayin'....

    Damn! And here all this time, I was imagining a crazed writer with an indiana jones hat, a Star Wars t-shirt, a kilt (commando, of course), and motorcycle boots.

    Way to kill my fantasies, dude!

    So just back from my spy lecture to find Ace has returned. I had two free coffees and three free muffins. I will be high on sugar and caffiene for the next few hours. Maybe I should turn the WP on and see what happens.

    Anyway, it was a really good lecture and I'd tell you all about it but then I'd have to shoot you. *Old, but still has mileage*

    You're confusing me with Doctor Jericho.

    Only he doesn't wear a kilt.

    Just Boyfriend. I don't like any of his other stuff so far. Most of it is annoying.

    Hmm.

    All I hear is Timbaland (which is good)...and a 12 year old boy telling me he's going to take me places I ain't never been befoe (which is creepy, and also unlikely).

    Perhaps that why I like the music so much and am very meh about the lyrics. It really doesn't sound like Beiver Fever.

    My stepdad has put my turtle and a lovebird in a cage together. I'm scared of the outcome!
