Yes, It has started!!!

Yeah, I know...fireworks are not safe and expensive, but they are just downright fun, i still have all my fingers, and I get paid to do research at school!!! I am not going to be here this year for the fourth because the, not just the Army...our division general decided that we needed to march in a parade in Huntington Beach, CA on the fourth. Lame. Anyway, that just means that I get my fourth of July on the second of July. I am ok with that. It doesn't ruin my fun at all. See.........And I spent way less this year than last year when I went to the Indian reservation!

It's started....

My day started with the following:
George "do you know what today is?!"
me "umm thursday?"
G "yea but do you know what else?!"
me "ah thursday the 28th?"
G "yup, and do you know what that means?!?!"
me " um no?"

G"FIREWORK SALES START TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I think I followed that with a great deal of eye rolling and comments about saving money etc... not that it matters, I've come home to find George and Galen (brotherinlaw) here with a BOX each of fireworks. They had only stopped lighting them because of the rain. Well guess what? It's not raining right now, any ideas where they are? :) Don't get me wrong I love the fireworks, I'm a pyro in my own right, but those boys take it to another level....good thing they've both married into a pyro family!

The great cake dilemma

We can't decide on a cake. Okay, we can't decide on a cake maker. We were going to use our local bakery, which makes very yummy cake, but they wouldn't make the cool shape I found. So through some friends we found a lady who makes cakes on the weekends, a little side business. She can do the cool shape, and her 'cake' is good, but the frosting and filling are not so great. So do we go with the bakery which makes awesome cake, but will only do round or square, or do we use the cake lady and have not as good tasting, but cool looking hexagon shaped cake? I know, it seems sooo trivial in the grand scheme of things, but seriously, we can't decided!

We are putting together some pictures for the reception, so if anyone has cute pics of George hiding on their computer let me know! We are finding as we look through picture albums that we tend to take a lot of pics without either one of us in it, just scenic stuff. Which is usually okay, but it's making it a little difficult to put together a slideshow of 'us'!

Fun with mice

The company I order the kittie soft paws from sends free mice toys with each order. I don't know what it is about these mice, but the cats LOVE them! So much so that the bite them and growl at each other and pack them away to another room so another kitty can't get it. Strider even hissed at Abby with one in his mouth! And I'm sorry for the shaking camara, it was the first time I took video with it!


Because I'm sure you all wonder what my office looks like, I thought I'd satisfy your curiousity and take some pictures for you (aka really boring day at work) So you've got a pic taken while standing at my cube, two pics of my desk, a pic of one of the butterflies we hung from the ceiling, and me with my oh so lovely headset for answering the phone
