Great to be back...

on April 22, 2009 - 6:29am

Wow... It's great to finally be able to get back in after all the technological difficulties... Oh, the pain & suffering (not seeing Josh)!

It's been a busy week for me at the university as everyone gears up for graduation festivities, finals week, and new student events. It's only Wed and already I'm wishing it was Saturday!

As I've mentioned, my dad has terminal Cancer... Amazingly, he's doing really well. The only problem is that the Chemo treatments caused him to get an ulcer and Acid Reflux :( .
Despite the minor setbacks, he's gotten back into wood carving, painting and drawing. Just recently, he finished carving a camel for the Nativity set he carved 39 years ago for my mom. He just started painting a Saddlebred horse for a friend of mine.

Deep thought...

on April 13, 2009 - 9:13pm

What is normal?
What is abnormal?

What is normal for one person may be abnormal for someone else.

So, what exactly is normal?

Hmmm... I wonder.

Jigsaw puzzle...

on April 9, 2009 - 7:19pm

Today at work, the Easter bunny left me a homemade Josh jigsaw puzzle on my desk (all the pieces were mixed up in a ziploc bag) w/ a typed note wishing me a Happy Easter.

Curious, I tried assembling the puzzle at lunch which proved more difficult than anticipated because I had no clue what the picture was supposed to look like! As I was assembling it, I realized that there were actually 2 pictures (one on each side). Sad, but true it took my whole lunch hour (30 min) to assemble Josh :( .

Curious, I asked around the office to see if I could find out who left it for me... Nobody fessed up. Oh well, it's the thought that counts.

Okay, so I'm a card shark... Big deal.

on April 8, 2009 - 5:26pm

Okay, the truth comes out... I'm a real, bonafide card shark. So what, right? So I enjoy playing various card games and amazing people w/ the infamous 1/2 deck 7 card trick... Big deal. But did you know I also collect decks of cards? Weird, I know. I'm not sure why I'm facinated with decks of cards, I just am.

Last weekend, I acquired 2 decks of cards from the Am. Embassy in Moscow from a friend and was asked how many decks I own. At the time, I had no idea (I never really counted).

So, I got to thinking. How many decks do I actually own? In all, I have 40 decks of cards in which only 2 decks are exactly the same and still in use (for playing). All the others except a deck of Jack Daniels playing cards have never been used... The Jack Daniels deck has long since been retired from use.

Interesting... Or should I say weird?

Animal House... Update

on March 17, 2009 - 5:57am

I personally believe people who are cruel to animals should be percicuted as well.

UPDATE: Talked with my friend again last night and asked her what happened to the guy's niece because it seemed rather odd that she'd just up and leave w/ nothing...

The elderly man's niece just up and left. Nobody has seen or heard from her in months. What the family is still trying to figure out is why she left instead of seeking treatment (she's mentally unstable) and how long the animals have been alone in the house.

According to the elderly man, he was able to convince his sister last night on the phone to have the house put up for sale after it's cleaned.

So, what about all the contents in the house? The elderly man's nephew is coming out from CA to sort through everything. Most items will be tossed. Anything of value will be sold on either E-Bay or Craig's list (and what doesn't sell will be given to chariety).
