274 - Screw You Spam!  

So after much consideration, and much deleting of spam messages, I have added captchas to the comments. This way, I won't have to approve comments as they come in and I won't have to delete 45+ spams a day.

No one likes Spam anyway. Have you ever tasted that stuff? Blech!

273 - What? Me? AWOL Again?  

I have a good reason this time, honest!

My laptop was on death's door. Not one day would go by without it overheating at the slightest thing and turning off. Sometimes that would happen 5-6 times a day.

If you haven't been following my story thus far, my husband, Pauly, travels a lot with work. He goes all around the world and trains employess, or zombies or something and teaches them how to use some software or something. Due to his crazy traveling (3 weeks out of a month crazy) he had a metric crap-ton of Aeroplan points. At least he did until he was super sweet and ordered me a netbook! It's so tiny and cute and I'm slowly but surely getting used to typing on this mini keyboard.

Anyways...my laptop is the thing with all of my pictures and Friday Funny things and since it's dying it's hard to get the files off it.

So here's a little crappy update to give you the 411.

272 - Meet the Cast - Episode Two - Elly  

So I talk about my family on here but I’m not sure I’ve ever done proper introductions. I’m going to start with my fur babies and then the flesh and blood. I've already told you about Cory.

Next up is Elly.

Elly

Oh my Elly. I know I shouldn't pick favourites but Elly is mine. She's the sweetest, best tempered and most awesome cat in the history of the world. She's a pure bred blue Himalayan and will be 4 years old on August 5. We got her when she was 6.5 months old. I was pregnant with Ash and just about to go on bed rest. Since I was the one home with her in the beginning she took to me like white on rice. Elly is my shadow. Where I go, there is an Elly near by. Her most favourite place to sleep at the moment is in the bathroom sink. She is addicted to cat treats and laser pointers and has a cat fit when she walks over a plastic bag. Fun Fact: Elly is short for Elvis.

271- What a Productive Day!  

I have made so much stuff today!

Today I have made:

*a ball of wool from Jacob's sheep roving

*a pair of fingerless gloves

*two fibre necklaces

*a crocheted bangle bracelet

&

*a toque

CRAZY!

I'd take pictures of them to show you but my camera battery is dead and my charger is AWOL. I ordered a new charger from ebay today so hopefully in a few weeks I'll be able to take pictures and list my new swag!

269 - Meet the Cast - Episode One - Cory  

So I talk about my family on here but I'm not sure I've ever done proper introductions. I'm going to start with my fur babies and then the flesh and blood.

This entry introduces you to the newest member of our family, Cory.

001

This is Corona. We recently got her from a friend of  a friend, Jen. Jen's boyfriend was crazy allergic to cats and needed to find Corona a new home. We fell in love in with Cory's picture in the e-mail. She's a 10.5 year old tortie. She's tall and beautiful. She's all about coming to bed at all hours for love and cuddles. She has so much personality and is sweet as a button. Cory is big but has a cute little mew. She's only been with us for a few months but we've already fallen for her hard. She also sheds more than any cat I have ever known.
