micros suck

This seems to have been a geocaching weekend. Cached friday into early saturday am, like 3am. Went to Pizza Night in Simi Valley and met a whole bunch of other cachers, some of whom I actually recognized by name. Then cached some more.....8 more, 3 first to finds, almost all of which were found with Robb_Dogg, the man is legend in his own time! And a very nice guy to boot!! Found 21 caches, dropped off 1 travel bug, picked up 3 trackables, replaced my stolen cache all in under 44 hours. I think I slept in there somewhere too.

I have decided, and I know I am not the first, that micros suck.

This is a micro:
Imagine trying to find THAT on a busy street with people watching!!! When the idea is stealth you look kind of dumb looking under park benches for something damn near invisible.

Okay, birthday present to finish, will post pictures later!

get out the poles boys....

I think my hormones are getting ready to stage an all out assault. I'm making things for christmas, none of which I'll post here ("people" are nosy!), and I am watching Little People Big World. It's not this show, but I keep seeing Jon and Kate Plus 8 commercials for their 2 week wedding special. They just look so damn happy! I watch the show, I know it isn't always a picnic. I'm married, I know it's not all smiles and flowers...but I'll be damned if I don't stop whatever I'm doing to watch the Jon and Kate commercials and get all choked up every time. EVERY time.
.....AND THEN..... of all the weird things to almost cry when watching...a Toys for Tots commercial. Kid walks up to a Marine and askes if he's Santa. When the Marine (on duty) doesn't respond, the kids says if he is Santa will he please take his list? The Marine doesn't even look down, barely even moves, but he uncurls his fist and hold out his hand to take the kids list. Okay, I'm getting choked up just thinking about it.
Damn hormones! Oh look I think I see another camp going up just to the west....:/

introductions are needed

A few weeks ago I posted a recipe for cooking fabric. I forgot to post the result. Meet Dead Fred. He hung outside on Halloween and scared the crap out of a lot of little kids! Fun!!!

making history

I know this isn't suppose to be about only the historical value, but come on here folks! Don't you realize that in a few short hours (oh, and 77 days) that we will have an historical american political first? Either our first black president or our first female vice president!?!?

I find myself watching the polls and election results although there aren't any yet. Am I the only one wholeheartedly disgusted with the proposition to ban gay marriage? Why is it okay in this day and age to discriminate against anyone for any reason? That's like saying, "Oh, by the way, since you're a woman, you no longer have any rights. We changed our minds. Sorry." Only they aren't even apologizing for this bit of extreme stupidity. What are they so afraid of? "Oh, if gay marriage is allowed, they are going to teach our children that it's okay." Folks, chances are that if you are so all fired paranoid about allowing gay marriage and you truly believe that it will somehow adversly effect you if two random people that you have never met are allowed the same rights and freedoms that enjoy on a daily basis then your kids are probably so freaking brainwashed anyway that law or no law, teaching or not teaching, it really won't make a difference. Yes, I realize that that was a very long sentence. But seriously, you may as well erect a cross on your neighbors lawn and set it on fire, because all you're doing is commiting a hate crime anyway. Not the same? EXACTLY the same.

Okay, I'll rant all night. Polls are closing, time to go obsessively watch the numbers.



Here, happy thought. puppies and bunnies. see they're cute!
