I thought of this weeks ago and just got around to making it. Working full time and going to school full time so spare time doesn't exist.

I lurk here but rarely post - thanks to all you Farkers for restoring my faith in humanity on a weekly basis!

What a pretty little critter.  I hope someone managed to snatch her up and give her a home, or at least get her somewhere safe where there are fewer cars and fewer playful hungry pooches.

[bulk-share.slickpic.com image 500x333]

I didn't find any free sites that tickled my fancy. I ended up with a SmugMug subscription and so far I have no regrets. I also read many forum posts giving high praise for ZenFolio,

I'm paid up on PB until April, but I'm deleting my account at the close of this thread to drive home my displeasure.



Yeah, me either, I think I will just stick it out with PB until it expires and then see how things look. Maybe I'll be able to upgrade to smugmug by then.

Every time I see your bearded dragons I'm reminded of the 3 my oldest niece had when she was about 14. My niece was explaining how one of them had died. She told me "He had been depressed for awhile"(Who knew lizards got depressed)and when she came home from school one day she found him face down in the water dish. She said "Obviously he committed suicide".
My sister asked her "Are you sure it wasn't murder? There are two others in the tank." My niece was horrified because she hadn't even considered murder. She ended up selling her dragons to a friend from school because whether it was murder or suicide she didn't want them anymore and she felt they should go to a home where they wouldn't have a past.
Yes my niece is a bit of an odd ball but like I've told her before every family needs an eccentric relative and she's the one for her generation. We won't discuss who's the eccentric one in my generation.

laulaja: Tnx lilys for welcoming Dezilith. Wonder if Dezilith  means thank you for letting me lurk and live vicariously through all of you. Sted of precariously?


I dunno, if QJ's had hushpuppies it could be rather perilous in here. :)


Real Women Drink Akvavit: I miss my friends who allegedly had ferrets. They moved out of state, so I don't get to go ferret bowling across their carpet anymore. :'-( The ferrets LOVED ferret bowling. They allegedly had three and I dunno about you, but if I were keeping three hyper ferrets (though that is totally illegal in my state) they'd have their own room full of toys and large tubing to scamper through and hidey holes and swings and stuff, too.

Allegedly.

/*waves in case they're lurking*
//*gives Macadamia a big ol' smooch!*


IIRC, while it's illegal to purchase ferrets in CA, I think it's fine to own them. I keep forgetting to go look that up to be sure... We had them in a previous apartment (they allowed caged animals but not cats, so fine, we got some INTERESTING caged animals!), and nobody batted an eye. Several friends and friends-of have also had the goofy little beasties, and the way I figure it, if I can buy ferret kibble, toys, and treats at the local pet store how illegal can they be? :)

/not again
//at least until I own my own home and can spend more time at said home with them

Been a pretty good week so far; might have a new apartment in a few weeks, the weather has gotten warm and sunny (got up to 75 today, hurrah!), I'm doing well in my classes, and the boys are being adorkable because it's nice outside. Speaking of nice outside, a quick Caturday CSS: I was doing my walk today (power walk with weights for an hour, good stuff) when on my way back to the house around the lake some guy was playing frisbee with his dogs. One of them had climbed out of the lake, but instead of running to him, he saw me and went "OMG, NEW FRIEND! :D" and galloped over, nearly body-checked me, and bapped me with the frisbee. The polite thing to do is to take said frisbee and throw it, but he decided that tug-of-war was WAY more fun. It's a strange thing to be 5'7 and 175 yet get tugged about by a dog about half of that weight. (Found out that he's a GSD-and-something-huge-mix, he was small for his lineage!) His owner was embarrassed and apologized for wet-dog-on-running-pants, but I didn't mind, I was almost done and had laundry to do anyway. I was finally able to get the frisbee free and threw it for him for a few minutes. If he was happy before, he was simply ecstatic afterward. "New friend who throws frisbee into lake? OMG YAY!!" That made my afternoon, and I think it did the dog's and his owner's as well.

And now, cats! Pardon the grainy quality, the light was weird and my phone isn't THAT clever.

She doesn't usually like hoomin fuds cuz she's weird, but I made some salmon with a quickie asian inspired glaze on it for dinner and she was next to my foot, so, I "accidentally" dropped a little piece on the floor. She really, really liked it. I had to fight her for my dinner. My mom was laughing so hard when I finally picked up my plate and ran for the safety of my lair. The cat actually was running after me.

See? That is why we love you! :D


It's kind of funny that my cat has fancier bowls than I do for my fuds. I got hers at Goodwill, one piece at a time, cuz that's how they sold it. So her "fancy bowl" is a china bowl with the gold rim and pretty flowers. I thought it was only fitting to put her fancy salmon in the fancy bowl so she'd know it was a treat and not "everyday fuds". She knows that bowl is for extra special fuds.

She also knows I'm going to give up the food eventually. Geez, cat. Can I taste my own dinner first? LOL!

Well, I was having a good ol' time playing games online and lookin' at kittehs, when suddenly I started having problems with my laptop. I'm still using Angrboda 'cuz a friend is going to upgrade Lilith (my favorite lappie) when he gets the time/comes across the parts. I got Lilith running again after she did the *hack* *cough* *wheeze* "and I die...." thing on me last week, but she does need an upgrade. No big, right? I've got tons of puter power here and Angrboda's doing just fine. Well, yeah, big deal NOW because Lilith isn't home and Angrboda is my last functional lappie that can also run all of my games and if she's going to act up, well, that's total tizzy fit time.

Me fighting with Angrboda:

OK, so that's just a cat pretending to be me and a grandma computer pretending to be Lilith. You get the idea, though.

To make a long story a lot shorter, when I calmed myself I realized it was our network (my son banging on the door yelling "MOOOOOM!!! The internet!" confirmed my diagnosis of "farkin' router") and since our router is older than the dirt Christ himself trod upon (in computer years, of course), I just gave my son my bank card, had him buy a new one and told him "set it up yourself" while I gabbed on my long-neglected cell phone. Problem totally solved, dudes, no further meltdowns required.

Don't you just love it when everything works out in the end?

sherpa18: The Ice Queen: So spoke with the vet tonight, apparently Rocky is QUITE hyperthyroid. Going to pick up a weeks worth of meds and then she'll get an exam to see how she's doing before we start fiddling too much with the dose...

Don't worry, the meds take effect very quickly. BTW, I forgot to mention that if you should decide to use the trans-dermal gel, you must wear (powder-free) latex gloves when applying it. If you start with the pills, remember to wash your hands after handling them. Good luck, and ...

powerful katrinka: sherpa18: borg: Elderly subby? where in the story does it say he was "Elderly"? he looks to be about 62 that not "Elderly"

Alvin K. Nersessian was born on February 13, 1937 and passed away on Friday, November 23, 2012.  Which made him 75 - I think that qualifies for describing him as "elderly".

[i415.photobucket.com image 307x400]

No, 75 is not always "elderly". I was born before him and do not consider myself to be "elderly". Of course you young-uns may have a different opinion. :- )


I feel elderly right now I'm so tired. I'm not ready for the taxidermist yet, so I guess I'm not. Well, that and I'm only in my 40's.

This will be me in another 40-something years:

domari: sherpa18: I used the same exact HTML that Flickr gives, which is what I've been using since I've been on Fark. When I tried using the image button and the URL last week all I saw was a broken image.


And that is more than likely your problem ... again, the Flicker url/link is providing more HTML encoding than the "new" Fark needs - as long as your link starts with JUST http:// and ends with .jpg , (delete anything else) all you have to do is paste it into the comment box (with or even without using the image button) and it should preview/post (which is how I got your pic to post from your Flicker account)... Drop me an email if I can be of any further assistance.

Cuz' "continuously" would be really bad, right? HA!!! Funnee....

When I was 13 or 14, my mom took my kid brother, my older sister, and myself on a cross-country camping trip out to the Rockies, Yellowstone, Utah, Grand Canyon, etc. Beautiful, beautiful country. Going back again before I die.

We went across the bridge at Royal Gorge in Colorado.
It's a narrow, suspension bridge, and the river is almost 1000 feet down below.
My brother looked over the edge, saw how far it was down to the bottom, and commented
that if you were to fall over the edge, "Dang! It's so far down, it would kill you continuously".

As young as we were, if our lives were to flash before our eyes, there would be a lot of time leftover before we hit.

Aww! Reptile fun! I had a Ball python today. I think it recognized me from last year. He/She was quite content to cuddle in my arms. And I got to explain to the kids some interesting facts about snakes.


That is so cool!  I had a Ball python for a couple of years.  Poor thing was sick when I got him and I had to force feed him the whole time I had him.  He never recovered, poor guy.

That's too bad! I was surprised how many kids were afraid of the snake. I did tell them about how they feel etc. Maybe next time I sub someone will touch a snake.

BBBB sounds like a bit of PTS. Definitely a trauma when you are any age, let alone 11! Yeep. I told the kids who were afraid that it was ok, I don't really like spiders either. In fact I think I would wig out if I had to hold a tarantula. Nope, don't think I could do it. Not even after several glasses of vino. *shudder*. I think it's because they are so fast, and when you see them they are skittering off to a safer place. I feel the same way about our millipedes that used to live in the basement. Gah! They wig me out, durn animated eyebrows..


I really think the fear of snakes could be genetic.  There are so many places in the world where you would never touch a snake.  I was lucky in that department because neither of my parents were bothered at all by snakes.  I caught my first one when I was in 6th grade, but I only touched it because I knew it was a garter snake.  I had read several books in the library about identifying snakes by that time.  When the garter snake escaped from his terrarium, my next door neighbor wouldn't come out of her house until I had found it (2 weeks later!)  Actually my sister found it when she was sitting in the bathroom.  It came up out of the fuzzy pink carpet and she flew out of there while pulling up her drawers yelling "I found your snake, I found your snake"!  She was in 4th grade at the time.  I decided I didn't need to keep him so I let him go in a field near-by.

*lusty ladybugs*

When I was a kid, the popular notion was that spotted bugs were female and unspotted were male.
There was one type, almost perfectly round, blood-red that I kept trying to catch and 'breed'.

Musta been doing something right, because I frequently found eggs on the lid of the jar right next to the air holes punched in the lid...but that's as far as I ever got with my breeding program.
