Morning all!


Oh. My. Gods! You just know I'd flatten everyone in a ten mile radius with the sheer pitch and volume of my "SQUEEEE!" if I opened my birfday ice cream and a little guinea pig popped out.

Deep Contact: Thanks for all of your kind responses for Pumpkin. We took him to the vet and it turned out he had kidney stone blockage and kidney failure. We decided to put him to sleep. It was a really bad day.


I'm so sorry. Hugs to you and yours. It sounds like the right decision: you didn't want Pumpkin to suffer.

spinach gunk: Went for a waterfront walk this evening... and I saw some seals!
I think they were a mother and nearly-grown pup.

They were very interested in this floating stick:

[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 800x600]

They actually stopped and rested their chins on it for a moment!

[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 800x600]

I think they were taking in the view.

[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 800x600]


Awesome! My daughter loves seals, has all the stuffys... She's pretty sure they are harbor seals (she's 7.)
We don't get to see them around here, not even at the Toronto Zoo.  :^(
Marineland is the closest but they have a shaky history treatment of animals wise, so we are a little conflicted about going there.  Besides, "in-the-wild" encounters are so much more cool!

Bit early in day for this, However.  credit yobbery, likely Ago.  May do for Good Meowning today.

Colleague came & collected what's now Her Stuff, except we both forgot to put the 2 folding wooden chairs in the van she had.  Said she found decent set of dishes in Biggest Yard Sale, so I need not lend.  She also has 2 beds, so trundle not needed. Also narrow staircase to 2 bedrms upstairs of ~1900 cottage/house.  Agreed with my comment she'd need skyhook to lift trundle up there. Beds one may dis-assemble likely best for older houses.

Type at ft of pg 11, moving furrward now , thanking GtPornDragon for his WallOfText.

I agree with the awesome of those pics. We had a couple wayward seals make it all the way up the Delta and swimming around Sacramento's rivers a couple years back. It's not that uncommon, but it still made the news.

My baby cousin (OK, so he's in his early 20's and is really tall, but still, he's a BABY to me, always) has always loved marine mammals. He went to University of Oslo for his (bachelor's, I think?) degree in biology and had just got back from some sort of university-related thing having to do with marine mammals in Australia before he and his family hit stateside to visit us - and check out some of the Universities here in California for him to do his undergrad work or sumfing in marine biology with a special focus on specific types of marine mammals - like seals (pinipeds? pinheads? not mah thang) - after another stint in Australia trying not to be killed to death by the entire continent, I guess. He's REALLY into it. So that love of seals now could turn into a whole career for your daughter some day!

Good Morning all Caturday denizens! Sorry for the threadjack but I have a favor to ask. As many of you know, I have been out of work for a long time and have a SS disability application still being considered. This week I have 3 appointments, each one a step towards getting work. One is a civil service written exam for a job with the county, one is an interview for a job which is part time with the ability to work into full time with benefits, and the other is part time with no chance of full time. My preference is the county job. Not only is the compensation package good, but I would be helping people applying for (or renewing) benefits like SNAP and Title 19 and they would accommodate my disability so I wouldn't need to collect SSD. IF I get SSD, the part time only would be good because it would bring me close enough to the maximum earnings allowable and be flexible enough that I can stay under the limit (if I don't get SSD, I'm screwed with this job). The other has it's advantages and disadvantages too.

Please do whatever praying; voodoo; crossing fingers, toes, claws, and paws; or whatever else that something happens with one of these three. It has been too long and I need income badly.

Wow!  Those eyes!  My grandma and grandpa's neighbor briefly had one as a pet in the mid 60's in LA so of course I had to go down the street to their apartment to visit.  I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever did for many years.  Not everyone gets to pet a mountain lion and live to tell the tale.  :D

The Ice Queen: Then I catch bronchitis. Serious, its summer, you shouldn't get bronchitis in the summer.


yeah, i've had bronchitis in the summer too... Just glad I was in Edmonton where it's relatively dry, rather than back east where it gets muggy as hell in the summer.  I think i'd have drowned in my own lungs if I'd had to deal with the humidity too.

Hope you're feeling better soon, I assume you've been to the doc and are on antibiotics?

My mom and I are going shopping together! This will be the first time we've gone shopping together in over a year in any way other than being on the same site on our computers and chatting back and forth with our "what do you think about the patio furniture in the garden department?" and switching pages to shop together online. So that's kinda awesome, even if I am just buying new unnertings and a computer chair.

I'm going to be the fanciest shopper EVER at the WalMart, I'll tell ya that. (Or KMart. Or whatever Mart we hit for cheap sparkly things we find, FOR THE ECONOMY)

/also, Walmart has Talenti Gelato rolled back to just under $4

I will absolutely do mah little Heathen thang for ya! This generally involves drinking a beer, so why wouldn't I? :-D Besides, I really do hope you get exactly the position that will benefit you the most in the long term.

We had some sort of bird of prey nesting right in one of the large trees behind my back fence about three or four years back. Someone told me it was a red tailed hawk, but I never got a good look at it. Our skwerl population went waaaaay down that year. It was like Wild Kingdom in my back yard.

You mean having issues with IE is not normal? I haven't used it in years it's such a PITA. I use either Chrome or Opera, both of which are running along fine and dandy right now.
