Don't Wanna Know

Day Two, Week Four:

I didn't have a chance to weigh in yesterday, so --



As though to prove I was going too fast, I have backtracked some, and my poor snail had to go backwards a few pounds. I think this is hormone related (at least, I hope so), and I should be back on track this week.

Work progresses apace. We still haven't gotten the hang of the new system. Seriously, it should be easier than this.

It has reached the time of year when exiting my office into 114-degree heat actually feels pretty good, because all the people who move to the Valley HAVE to keep the air conditioning at sub-freezing in order to survive here. Is it any wonder the Valley has brown air? At least our electrical infrastructure was something well planned, unlike our road system.



My very first macro:




And my second one, a bit more "traditional":



I'm really bad at thinking up captions, but I saw Cairo laying on the hutch like that, and I just KNEW he considered himself above cheezburgers (especially since that night we were in fact HAVING cheeseburgers - specifically, lamb cheeseburgers - and he was supremely uninterested, while Cuervo WANTED).



Al Queda says the US invasion of Iraq was a gift to them (NBC Nightly News). Wasn't that nice of W? Today I listened to Diane Rehm for the first time in a while; it was a topic close to my heart - we are exchanging our civil liberties for "safety." I have to read the book they were discussing, In Defense of Our America, by Anthony Romero & Dina Temple-Raston. Apparently they also address the "right's" attack on the ACLU - about time.

Anyway, hope everyone has a "safe" Fourth of July - remembering always the men who believed it was more important to be free than to be safe, and led us to Independence by way of dissent, rebellion, and revolution. Watch the fireworks. (Hope no one in these parts does anything stupid with them, considering the fire danger.) Enjoy!


ETA this cartoon...

Cairo is above Chezeburgerz.

Personally, I think he's holding out for Kobe beef!

Re: Yis
Yes, he is. But he is not above crackers. (He will sit on my mousepad and beg when I'm eating chips or crackers of any kind - he likes Goldfish, hee.)

A good argument for having a camera at hand at all times.
