bullets

  • Damn, it's cold. (I know - bitch, bitch, bitch. But seriously? Being negative on the Celsius scale sucks.)

  • Monster dog needs training. I've now started carrying broken bits of cookie-bones in my pockets. The dog loves me and the kids say I smell like toast. What an interesting perfume you're wearing, Jess! Please God let me remember to take the stuff out of my jeans before going out in public....

  • How can the Man In The Yellow Hat not realize that every.single.freaking.time. he says 'Now be a good little monkey' all hell breaks loose?

  • I absolutely realize that the previous bullet actually means there's too much PBS going on at my house. A small pink girl with a brown monkey fixation lives here. And parents that like coffee and quiet in the morning. Screams of 'Jorge! Is time for Jorge!' don't mix well with that sort of thing.

  • I have a new camera (I loves my new camera) and the software for it is incomprehensible. So far, I've just been running everything through Picasa, because even studying the manual that came with the software program is giving me fits. I think I need to learn Photoshop. Is there anyone clever out there who could tell me if it's best to take a class for that, or if it's strictly a buy-and-try sort of thing?

  • Todays Mission: Find all The Boy's Socks. This may mean looking under the bed. If I don't blog tomorrow, you can assume I'm buried under an avalanche of Bionacles and dinky cars. (Although the monster dog will probably sniff my pockets out.)

Good luck with the sock search. Under the bed can be a scary, scary place.

I have yet to figure out what happens to Rae's socks. The moment she gets back into the house after school/daycare, she shucks them (along with her pants, but that's another story) and they disappear. Never to be seen again. My latest theory is that she eats them. Maybe that's why she's so picky at the dinner table, she's so full of socks that she has no appetite for dinner.

photoshop costs a fortune. see if you can find it on a college or public library computer to play with before...

You might want a photoshop class -
it's expensive for buy and try...

I love the way you make your chores sound so much like a fun adventure. I almost want to go sock hunting too.

The Man in the Yellow Hat is such a trusting soul.

Photoshop's pretty hard to figure out on your own. Impossible, really. You'll need at least a good instruction book and a lot of spare time. But give it a try - you'll be able to do simple photo corrections pretty quickly.

Oh a new camera! Tell us more.

Over here he's called Dorge! And he annoys the heck out of me, I'd love to live consequence free.

I have PS Elements, the cheaper version, and it works just fine. It is difficult to figure out in the beginning, and the books it came with are useless. I found some good tutorials online and worked my way through them. Good luck.
As for the yellow hat man, that movie irritates the living daylights out of me!

Good luck with socks! We'll send out the rescue squad if we don't see you tomorrow!

O dogs of any shape or size just lurve socks!! He had probably stashed them away somewhere...
Mind you, there is a secret sock heaven, where all the socks dance with the missing teaspoons & go Nyaaah nyaaah at us mere mortals, down here wondering what the hell happened!

I must say, you are giving me serious Header Envy here!!

We have a seven year old who still sleeps with both of her Daddy's Georges from when he was a little boy.
