Ahhhh....Friday at Last!

Friday is the day of the week when my internal engine kicks into a lower gear at every hour. It's been a busy week at work and I'm glad it's over. The highlight for me today was standing in the doorway of the "Flight Crew Member Self Defense Training" and seeing two small female flight attendants kick butt. Watching our Security personnel screech and run from a small garden snake in the hall was real amusing!

On my lunch hour today, I took some time to browse Blogger profiles for interests in, (1) Boston Terriers, and (2) Ponds. It was quite enlightening and caused me to worry a bit. My imagination went wild, especially in the Boston Terrier category. But first, this is what I noted in the Pond category (which was a heck of a lot more tame than Boston Terrier profiles):

Some people interested in Ponds were also interested in...

  • Homos.
  • My reverse snort and those who revel in it. (who cares?)
  • Beer, bugs.

Not too bad, considering what I found out about some people interested in Boston Terriers that are also interested in...(my comments in parenthesis)

  • Wardriving (what the heck is THAT?), slackware. (same question)
  • Ukuleles, maxing out credit cards, capsule toys. (oh, boy)
  • Be-otches.
  • Toe Nail Polish.
  • Uromastyx. (?)
  • Cussing like a sailor. (no, thanks)
  • Atheism.
  • Boneless cats. (Please, stop it!)
  • Vibrating punk music, the art of lying.
  • Belly button lint, running up the down escalator.
  • Deviant sexuality, robots, corporate sabotage, afrofuturists. (?)

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???????????! This can not be a reflection on me, my friends with Bostons, or my fate. I vow NEVER to browse another profile again. That was enough.

Received a note from a friend in Maryland who loved a photo of my Koi she saw on one o my posts. "Listen, I went home last night, did my initial sketch, and plan to exhibit the painting in July of 2007 at the Chesapeake City Town Hall and Gallery. I was notified a couple of weeks ago that my proposal for my solo exhibit “Aquarella” had been accepted and last week I signed the contract so it's a done deal. I must have 30 paintings completed by July! The exhibit will highlight all water media paintings. I AM INSANE! However, I love a challenge." I am honored!

We had dinner at the clubhouse tonight with Michael's friend from Baltimore and on the way there, I snapped the first hole. It's great to live on a golf course, although we don't have a view of it. It's beautiful.

Sun setting at 6:30 p.m. It's going to be cold tonight and might dip to 33. That's just a premonition of winter, shorter days, and I'm not happy about it.

Gee, I'm feeling like a complete dimwit right now, so I'm signing off!

I can help with Uromastyx, at least. It's a strange-looking gila-monster like lizard. Reptile boys like to keep things like this. I'd like to think that this is a different cohort than BT owners, but one can't control everything. Just kidding, all you Uromastyx fans. But they seem like antimatter to Boston terriers, lying around on a hot rock all day. (Come to think of it, that's mostly what Chet does). Scratch this comment. I'm going to bed.

Julie - wasn't it wild? Thanks for the lizard reference. Chloe and Bella do something similar to lying on a hot rock - they follow rays of sunlight to bathe in all day. I'll never look at those profiles again, anyway. Hope Blogger is cooperating...
