Well, it's getting later. But the animals seemed to want me out of bed, so I was forced to drag myself out and feed the cats and watch the dog's great agonies as he was locked in his crate for the duration of time it took said cats to eat.

This rocks:



I want to see a whole concert with them now.

Last night we went to the Phoenix Airport to spend a very nice evening with green_maia, which was very nice! We had a grand time, just having sandwiches and chatting about everything we could think of, from the real world to Babylon 5, while she was on a four-hour layover going home from CA. Anything that makes a layover that long go by faster!

I cleaned off my desk yesterday after I bought myself a brand-new Terabyte drive to back up this computer on, but before I could get that going, I found my old computer, turned it on, and realized, DUH, the scanner works on that one, so, I spent the afternoon scanning some old pictures, so now I have some to post!


This was taken back in February, when Mom and I went for the George Strait concert and Super Bowl party:



I love doing this so much I don't even mind how heavy I look...


So of course I still need to set up the new drive and do the backups, but at least I got that much done!


This picture was taken in 1998, before the Beaumont was bought and fully restored (I read an article about it) -- I'm dying to get back up there to see the restoration and actually go inside:

Yeah, I know -- Barb and I are already talking about the possibility of taking a second honeymoon there (the rates are surprisingly affordable for a place like that).

The food in the other guy's dish is ALWAYS better than what's in my dish (don't give me that whole "it came from the same can" BS, I know his is better than mine).

Sadly, it won't be SOON, since of course this year is New York and next year we're hoping for the Pac NW to visit her family and the friends we have in the Seattle area... but hopefully!

oh trust me I understand. (especially since both NY and Seattle are blindingly expensive)

Fortunately most of New York is already paid for -- but yeah, there's all the STUFF we need to do!

Oh, yes - Colorado is astounding. (One of the reasons the John Wayne True Grit was shot around that area, rather than in Arkansas...) This is what the Beaumont looks like now!

Well, I'd put on nearly 20 pounds since the wedding -- I'm struggling to get back to "wedding weight"! :)

Fat?! Shaddup!

The Beaumont looks gorgeous. Was that in Oray?

Hey, 186 pounds, no joke. I was 166 for the wedding, and that's still above the 145 I want to get to.

I posted a link to its website up there in responses to COM and QOA -- it's amazing how gorgeous it is now (and how affordable the rooms are! Seriously, starting at around 120 bucks is not bad at all, considering that's the price Mom got for the Embassy Suites here in Phoenix!).

Yeah, I came away from that wanting to watch it again, myself!!!

(And I don't think I've seen Season 5 since it aired -- it wasn't as good as the rest, but it's still miles above a lot of other stuff, and it's time to see it again!)

Is the Beaumont an old hotel? Or old apartment building? Either way, it's very cool.

It was a hotel, then other things, and is now a hotel again. We're dying to go back, now that I've pulled up that website (I knew it had been restored, but I had no idea how amazing it is now!).

I had to spend a moment reading all your haikus there. :D
