We finally have our own REAL DSL! Yippee!

Work is great. I love it.

But right now, Christy and I are watching Days of Our Lives. Okay, so I like it. Give me a break.

Bertram in the Bathroom

For reasons unknown to me, I have not posted in a while. I guess I'm just not a good blogger....Bertram is currently in the bathroom meowing because he wants to come through the bedroom and go out on the patio. He's a little out of his head, because he just came in from the patio. Like Depeche Mode, he just can't get enough.

A while ago he was knocking on the door. I'm not yet sure how he does it, but he knocks on the bedroom door now.

And that's really all I have to say about that. (I didn't mean to quote from Forrest Gump just then. It just happened.)

Workin' the Birthday

Tomorrow is B-Day 34. Yup, and I'm working. But that's okay. My department is throwing me a birthday lunch, catered by Quizno's. It's very nice of them, but it puts us all in the uncomfortable position of celebrating my birthday like they know me. It's a little weird. But I'm sure it will be a good time, nonetheless.

Yesterday I missed my first day of work with what I believe was food poisoning. I felt really guilty calling in sick, especially since I asked for this Friday off for my second birthday celebration; this one with Christy. (Then there's my family celebration on Saturday, and Christy's family celebration on Sunday. Whew! I'm too old for this.) I don't know if it's residual from the food poisoning, but I have a huge headache right now. I need to lie down for a while before Christy gets home from work.

If You Love Your Books...

... set them free!

I just joined BookCrossing, and I'm thinking Christy will do the same shortly. (When she gets the invite I emailed to her!) I encourage you to join, as well.

Here's the idea: After reading a book, you slap a label on it and leave it in a public place. The label allows the book to be tracked. Then, you can follow your book's journey on the BookCrossing website!

You can also use the web site to track down books that may have been set free in your area. And, of course, you can interact with other BookCrossing users.

What a great idea! I can't wait to get started. Now, which book will get the boot first?

YouTube Addict

So, I have become a YouTube addict. I went on a spree of watching and commenting on videos. But guess what? YouTube tells me "You've made several comments recently, so wait a while before you make any more." What is that?!? Here I am being a productive member of the YouTube community and they shut me down? Hrumph!

Wedding Announcement & Photo

Our Wedding Announcement is online! (I'm at work, so this had to be ultra-brief.)
