Hey, everyone! What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Two of Five

Perhaps another day, I'll post the other three cats (anyone allergic?), as well as the two dogs, fish, and hermit crab named Goose. But for today, I introduce to you O'Malley (the cow-looking dude) and Pumpkin (the orange tabby). I think they're Honey's kitties' long lost relatives.

What do you all have planned for today?

Cubicle Wars

A few years ago, two local Gonzaga University grads, Joe Bereta and Luke Barats, created fun webs videos such as the one below called Cubicle Wars. (Honey first told me about them when they made a mother's day video). Their different acts have become so popular, they're now making a pilot for NBC called "This is Cul-de-Sac." Go Spokane boys!!! What do you think about the YouTube craze?

Visions of Vacation . . .

Once in awhile, I develop wanderlust that I can't seem to shake. The other night, I googled different U.S. spots where we might travel for our summer vacation. For instance, I thought it might be nice to take the kids to see the Grand Canyon.

I also checked out cruises, because my MIL suggested that dh and I should take a trip like that together. The cruises to Mexico looked cool. The Carribean cruises were nice too - the most affordable. But, I would really love to go on one of those Mediterranean cruises to Spain, Italy, and Greece (with maybe a stop in Monte Carlo so I could win enough to pay for the trip). It would take seven glorious days, after which time I would sport a lovely tan.

Then finally, for the creme de la creme, I looked up The Orient Express. Dh and I think taking this train across Europe would be completely awesome. You can start in London and go all the way to Rome if you like, stopping in cities like Paris and Vienna. You can build your own trip -- such as from Paris to Instanbul. It would be, for me, the ultimate trip (though I would like to go to Machu Picchu sometime).

How much does the jaunt we want to take on the Orient Express cost? A mere $7,000 or so. No worries. I'll just sell my first born child.

Now that the reality of how much it costs to "see the world" has set in, we're back to looking in our own backyard for a cool vacation. A trip across country, a cabin at the lake for a week -- it's all good.

Where would your dream vacation take you to?

In the Mood to Write?

Today, I'm blogging over at the Deadline Divas. I'm curious to know how your mood effects your writing. Come over and discuss!

The Look of Evil

A dieting person shouldn't remember the kids' easter candy hidden in the trunk of her car. She shouldn't tiptoe out there in her white socks, stepping in puddles and making the dogs bark. She shouldn't take all of the chocolate creme-filled eggs -- and caramel too -- and eat them one after another. Not good for the diet. Not at all.

They're evil.

How's it going for you today?

Over at Deadline Divas today, Kait asked if we remembered to change our clocks for daylight savings time. The answer is a resounding NO.

Yesterday was my brother-in-law's big birthday dinner at a fancy restaurant in town. We were all looking forward to celebrating with him since we don't see that side of the family often enough. Anyway, we showed up in our fanciest finest to find them all eating already. We quickly figured out that we were not on time but an hour late because we'd forgotten about the time change. We felt like FOOLS.

What is the worst social blunder you've made like that?

What goes on in June?

It's just occurred to me that there are more birthdays in March than I've seen in months. Happy birthday to Honey, my step-dad, my late FIL, my son's friends Connor and Taylor, my BIL Tom, my friends Anne and Wendy, and my daughter Roxie (ooh - I should probably plan something for her, huh?).

So . . . what in the heck goes on in June? Weddings, or rather wedding nights? Or is it July? Perhaps Independence Day - people are feeling liberated.

What do you think? Do you know anyone with a March birthday. If so, feel free to wish them a Happy Birthday here. :)

Tonight I went blog-tripping, visiting places I haven't been for awhile. I decided to share a couple of neat blogs (yes, I'm blog-challenged again, but they are neat sites).

One of my all-time favorite authors, Jenny Crusie, talks about writing positive goals vs. negative goals for her characters and shares a lovely scene from her WIP. You won't regret taking a few minutes to read her post.

Awhile back, I discovered a blogger/writer whose voice I love. Her name is Buffy, and she's a most interesting individual -- I found myself reading all of her back blog posts, as well as excerpts from some of her work.

Finally, though not a blog, my son, who's found his musical feet lately, discovered this YouTube video -- he's listened to it a lot. See, when he and my daughter were little, I played this song often for them and I'd ask, "Who's the composer?" and "What's the song?" They always answered, "Canon in D by Pachelbel" (they remembered the composer by rhyming it with Taco Bell). This very different rock version isn't bad. Actually...it's freaking amazing!

Hey, there's going to be a familiar face for some of us starting this month on Fox TV!

Nathan Fillion (aka Capt. Mal Reynolds) has been reunited with "Firefly" scribe Tim Minear to star in Fox's mid-season replacement "Drive", which debuts in March '07. The premise is SO interesting -- read more about it here. I for one plan to jump on board -- can't miss Mal as he races for his life.

And speaking of Fox, is anyone following American Idol? Yes...we're the cornball family. *snort*
