Okay. I said (in this journal or another) that I'd update more once the near year started and I have completely failed. I apologize. While all kinds of shit has been going on it seems like absolutely nothing is happening. You know? Eh.

Ice storm. That's what's happening at this exact moment. It SUCKS. The ground is covered in ice. Literally. It's horrible. Even more slippery than goose shit.

Speaking of geese...well, turkeys aren't geese but they are big birdies..so it sorta segues. We have four wild turkeys that have been living nearby. They traipse up the street together and stop and munch on fallen bird seed and things like that in the yards. It's so adorable. WANT THEM FOR MY VERY OWN!!

I finally bought a scale. No really. I've been trying to lose weight for a long time now and never had a scale so I was never really sure where I was starting from or if I was making any progress. So this should help. I also ordered some kind of calorie burn / heart rate monitor doohickey. Not really sure how it'll work but here's hoping. :)

We got the streaming Netflix thing to work. That's cool. I'm checking out Bones. I figure I have watched just about every crime / murder show except for the craptastic CSI franchise so I should give this a shot. After 3 episodes I find it amusing. I'll definitely watch the rest of the seasons.

Izzy has taken to hiding under the bushes of my neighbor across the street. She wanders outside, scoots across the street and immediately ducks under the bushes. Then she will stay there as long as possible or until I drag her scrawny ass out. She hates the snow but loves to be outside. I guess it must be like an igloo under there. Either way it's driving me nuts. I feel weird roaming into my neighbor's yard and digging my cat out from under their bushes. haha

Irvy is having a MISERABLE time with the snow...and now the ice? He was skidding all over the place. Poor guy. He's exhausted and snoring on the couch beside me. He puked all over my bed this morning. Dunno what that was about but it was a lovely surprise to wake up to.

I'm addicted to Bejeweled 3, SO many options and ohhhhh. Games are not good to me. I just lose all track of time because of them. Or at least that's the excuse I'm using :)

I dunno. I guess that's it. I spend more time browsing and scanning sites (dw, twitter, facebook and tumblr) than I do actually adding content to them. I AM reading even if I don't comment. :)

Izzy is at it again. She killed another chipmunk. :( I can't help but be proud of her hunting prowess but I am so sad for the lil rodents. They just don't have a chance once she spots them. I came out of the house and saw it at the foot of the stairs and she came scampering around the side of the house, meowing, chirping actually, and did a little dance. She was so happy with herself. Then Irvy walked over it and his lame back leg stepped on it so he turned around and gobbled it up. I shrieked. He dropped it. Then Izzy hissed at him. Pawed the dead chipmunk, saw it was relatively the same as she'd left it then moved on. Then I walked Irvy. My animals are awesome.

Speaking of awesome animals: WILD TURKEYS!!!!!!! There were 4 wild turkeys on my street today. Four JUMBO wild turkeys!!!! I tried to get pictures but the humidity fucked up my camera lens. :(

It is the last night of September and you know what this means kiddies. OCTOBER!! So ... 31 horror movies!! No no for real. I'm going to do it this year. Probably more than that (as usual) but at least one a day. I'm going to have to use HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Encore to add to my own collection. Although I might actually own over 30 horror movies. Hm. I shall check. I'll let you know what I watch. :)

I think I'm going to promote [community profile] shaki  in [site community profile] dw_community_promo and see if I can't get some more members.

I just checked out some previews for all of the tracks off Shaki's new album Sale El Sol and you guys..she wasn't lying when she said there are some songs that are a lot like songs off of Pies Descalzos. YAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!! I am so fucking excited for this album now. Also the new video is out and I AM SO THRILLED with how screen-cappable it is. ICONS GALORE!!


And with that I am done. It's almost time for The Rachel Maddow Show. Hope all of you are well. :)
