A few things to know about me.

1.  I LOVE animals and have quite a few of them.  So if you come over, you WILL leave with some sort of pet hair on you.  I'm sorry about this, but it's completely unavoidable.  I do my best to keep it under control...but even vacuuming three times a week and constantly dusting does not get rid of all of the hair.  Especially from our giant dog, Luna.  And right now she's shedding, so there are hairy dust bunnies in my house bigger than our cats. 

2.  I have been hand washing a lot of my clothes, so if you come over, you'll probably see my skivvies hanging on the clothes rack to dry.  I'm sorry.  But at least they are clean...and cute!

3.  As a super crafty and creative person, I am also quite a little mess maker.  It's usually not really a dirty mess...just a lot of clutter.  Rarely is my dining room table free of may have to scootch over my hot glue gun, a pile of fabric, a stack of magazines, some Sharpies....  I have never been a neat person, and try as I might, I don't think I eve will.  My goal is to do a little at a time and keep the clutter at least rotated so you get to look at NEW piles each time you come over.

4.  Back to being an animal lover....  My ferrets live here.  As in, this is also their house.  So yes...they will be roaming freely during the day.  Their cage is only for the night time.  So watch your step.  They are sneaky little things.

5.  I am a Whovian...a proud, proud Whovian.  I will make Doctor Who references several times a day whether you understand them or not.  I'm sorry...I'm so, so sorry.  (You see...that was one of those references right there...and if you aren't a had no idea).  I will try my best to convert you to become a Whovian as well because it's awesome.  It gives you a reason to yell things like FANTASTIC and GERONIMO when an exclamation is needed.  Even my dog is trained and knows what ALLONS-Y means.

I think that's enough for now.  I need more coffee...because I always need more coffee....

Here's a nice little way to start my day...I click on this link not really know what to expect.  To my surprise, I watch one of the happiest men on the planet dancing like he just don't care!  I LOVE IT!  We take ourselves far too seriously these days.  I think that if everyone were to just ease up a bit, and be a little more silly, that our entire world would be a better place.  Now, I'm not saying I'm going to sport spandex and get jiggy with it any time soon, but we could all take just a little from this guy.

New favorite snack

So this is something that I found at Walmart. These things are amazing! A full serving of fruit, in a cute little portable pouch. Take THAT fresh fruit! I'd rather have mine all mashed up and in a convenient pouch! AND the multifuit flavor tastes like Hawaiian Delight baby food. I'm not sure if they still make that flavor, but they should if they don't. It's great!

Willie One Blood: Whiney Whiney

This is one of my very favorite songs of all time, from one of my very favorite movies of all time. I bet I've seen this movie 20 times and it's still just as funny. Gavin and I are watching it now. It's his first time seeing it.

God hates figs

OMG, it’s true!! This changes everything!

Mark 11:12-14

The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it. **

Joke of the Day

Two guys are sitting next to each other at a pub.

After a bit, one guy looks at the other and says, "I can't help but think, from listening to you, that you're from Ireland."

The other guy responds, "Yes, I am from Ireland!"

The first guy says, "So am I! And where about from Ireland might you be from?"

The other guy answers, "I'm from Galway."

The first guy responds, "And so am I! And what street did you live on in Galway?"

The other guy says, "I lived on Coach Street in the east part of town."

The first guy says, "So did I! And to what school did you attend?"

The other guy answers, "Well, I went to St. James."

The first guy gets really excited, and says, "So did I. What year did you graduate?"

The other guy answers, "Well, now, I graduated in 1975."

The first guy says, "I can hardly believe our luck at ending up in the same bar tonight. Can you believe it, I graduated from St. James's in 1975 as well."

About this time, another guy walks into the pub and asks for a whiskey. He asks the bartender, "Hows it going?"

The bartender says, "It's going to be a long night tonight, the Callahan twins are drunk again."

Gavin can fall asleep just about anywhere. He can fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I have proof. Kaya is sitting at the table writing a story, I am checking my FB, the TV is going, and I hear this sound...this soft breathing. I turn and see Gavin, asleep on the couch. He's still sitting up! Kaya and I have a conversation, and he is still asleep. Then he starts to drool on himself. I wish I could do that! The sleeping part...not the drooling part...
