I forgot to put a title on this

Wow, what happened to this week? I have been working from 6:00 - 4:15 every day since Tuesday (7:00 - 5:15 on Monday), and I worked this morning. We caught up today. Woot. Starting Monday, back to our regular schedule. Of course, that's why I've been so scattered (and tired).

Snoopy at the Kennedy Space Center:

Dennis Miller (whom I saw on Craig Ferguson and my head almost exploded with how Craig was able to sit there and graciously listen without bashing the guy through a wall), and every other deliberately blind (or willfully ignorant) climate change denier needs to watch (and really comprehend) this video:

Harry Potter stars then and now. Neville gets my vote for "Most Improved."

Idiocy on a grand scale

Pod of Hippos:

Three ships: From left to right: the Carnival Sensation, the Disney Wonder, and I don't remember the name of the Celebrity ship...

There's something wrong with the name of this candy: "Soft Peanut Brittle." (It's quite tasty, but...)

World Market has a beautiful looking "blood orange cinnamon" tea in for the holidays from Republic of Tea. I want to try it desperately, but Republic of Tea is SO expensive, and I don't know if I can justify getting it for myself when there's other things needed. Between car repairs and the return of termites, not to mention Christmas... (of course, I'm doing all right on Christmas presents; I have to wrap some stuff up and see what I have and what I still need).

A little yellow bird:

I can't even talk about the climate deniers without frothing at the mouth. How can they care so little for this planet? And the Steve Martin thing won't load, but is it about how the audience at a recent talk was upset that he talked about art, asked for their money back and got it? Stew. Pid.

Love the little birdie.

Yeah, that's the Steve Martin story. He gave a talk at the Y (not sure where, I'd have to read it again) and because the audience was BORED (he dared to talk about his new book, and not his comedy movies), they got their money back. One of the comments said "that's like if I went to a basketball game and demanded my money back because my team lost." Yeah.

I'll check the link. Maybe they pulled the story for some reason. :/

I don't usually get mad at Craig's guests, but Dennis Miller had me frothing at the mouth, that's for sure.

Addendum: The link works for me, so maybe it's just you. :-) In any case, it's on NPR's site, so if you want to read it, you can probably just go to NPR.org and find it. :-)

and holy hell Neville got hot. When did that happen?

As with a number of those animals, I'd never seen any LIVE before -- they didn't do much, but they were pretty awesome!

I KNOW! I scrolled through those thinking Rupert Grint was "most improved," and then I hit Neville. Holy crap. They must have had to work HARD to keep him looking, well, "Neville-ish" for the last movie!

do you guys not have a zoo there? I grew up with the Pittsburgh zoo and Columbus's zoo is world class so I've been seeing all of these things all my life which is pretty cool

Rupert is cute. Heck Dursley turned out rather cute but wow, Neville, who knew

I posted pictured from the Phoenix Zoo just a couple of weeks ago. It's a lovely zoo -- but there are a LOT of animals out there, and Phoenix doesn't have all of them. We have a beautiful breeding program for orangutans, magnificent tiger and lion enclosures, the awesome Monkey Village, beautiful aviaries, kangaroos and wallabys, there are koalas on loan right now, white rhinos, Asian elephants, all the native Arizona animals, and right now an Andean Condor.

But no hippos, no opakis, no gorillas (lots of primates, just no gorillas), no bears, no flying foxes. Different zoos means seeing different things! That's why I love 'em!

I think my favorite thing at the Phoenix Zoo was the meerkat exhibit. I loved that they were fearless about coming right up close to the glass to say "hi!"

Yes, the meerkat "village" is pretty awesome! Our otters are adorable, too, but this last time they were sleeping so we didn't see any antics.

Holy cow Neville hot! Though Dan will always have my heart. Especially after he sang Tom Lehrer's "The Element Song" on Graham Norton's show the other week.

I used to LOVE Dennis Miller when he was on SNL and HBO. Then he had a brain transplant and became a Fox News clone and an insufferable bastard. For someone who is really smart about a lot of things (well, used to be), Dennis really showed his ignorance with Craig. (And I think Craig was seriously holding back from arguing with his guest. I have a feeling Dennis won't be back on ANYTIME soon.)

I am so jealous y'all went to Kennedy. When my family went to WDW over a decade ago, my only request was to take a day and visit the Cape. Didn't happen.

Hee! I didn't see that. Anyone who knows a little Tom Lehrer gets top nods from me!

I remember when Dennis Miller was funny and erudite. I heard he was basically lobotomized by 9/11, but seriously -- he's now a complete and total wingnut.

Well, to be fair, I went to Kennedy LAST year, but since I've been so busy this week, I haven't taken any new pictures! We never got off the Disney property this time!
