Would you Like a Cheshire Cat/ Dragon?

Well, once again we’ve come to the time to blab.

Tonight my brain is tired. My best thought is that the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland is like a cross between a cat and a dragon. I think the Cheshire Cat would be my best choice as a pet, other than a goldfish swimming outdoors in a pond. You just can’t go wrong with either of those. They don’t really need anything from you/ me in this case. With the Cheshire Cat however, you have the added bonus of a creature that lives to cause trouble and be generally irritating in a good, even helpful way. You just can’t find any other pet that enjoys tormenting you. Try to beat that with some drooling, slobbery dog that wants you to pick up it’s poop.

I am tempted to play Maple Story now. Zack and I were playing it often this week while he was here. But, my brain really does think it should sleep. Silly brain.

Really a Rock Garden


Graham must like rocks as much as I do. He has them all around his house. The gardens and lawn are huge there but around the house itself are just rocks and a very few cacti. (Yes, cactus in Canada, growing wild and outdoors all year long).

This is a rock picture from his house. I was looking forward to the rock pictures at least as much (maybe more) than the rose pictures. But they were the ones I took and goofed up. I did this one yesterday just before the camera decided it was full, 36 pictures were stored on it so that is better than a roll of film which gets 26 if you push it. Anyway, I will take more rock pictures next time I drive down there. This one I will keep but I will crop it before using it as desktop background.

Sexual Fables – An Alternative History of Western Arts and Literature

How would you rewrite or explain your favourite fable, myth or classic?

Tickle: Are you Millionaire Material?

Tickle: Tests, Matchmaking and Social Networking: “Ever thought about buying an SUV and joining a tennis club? You should, because you were made for the elite. We can tell that you enjoy many of the finer things in life, but for some reason you just can’t make the leap to ‘millionaire material.’ Sure, that’s a step down from the top of the money pile, but it’s probably all for the best. Why? Perhaps because, when it comes down to it, you enjoy fun more than money. Cash is all well and good, and we can tell that you’re pretty good at saving your dough when you put your mind to it, but you’d rather spend time outdoors, hang out with friends, or plan your next big trip than drool over your bank balance. After all, what’s money for if you can’t enjoy it?”

Tonight there is a lottery draw with a prize of $30 million. I had to buy a ticket. Wouldn’t it make you always wonder if you never bought one? Sure you could write down some numbers and check them (or never) later. But, you might choose different numbers when you actually got a ticket. Or, worse, what if your numbers won but you didn’t make it offical? How would that feel? I don’t even want to comtemplate it.

So I bought four tickets. One for my Mom, her favourite numbers. Ticket two I phoned my nephew for his number picks. We like to get joint tickets now and then. If we win I’ve promised to share half of it with him. Of course, he doesn’t realize he is under age and thus… ineligible. Still, I’m not a complete bitch. I’d share, something, with him. 😉 The other two tickets were my own numbers. One were numbers I liked and the other just made a neat design on the ticket ballot. How do you pick numbers if you buy tickets?

Anyway, good luck to me (and to all of you should I not be the big winner).

First thing I want to do is buy a new car, one that doesn’t make bad noises. Then I could pay off everything and everyone. Not that I owe a lot. Compared to most people I know I am fricking debt free. But, it bugs me and I think about that a lot. It would be great to have it all gone, permanently and forever. After that I’d pick out a nice little house, a new computer system (plenty of computery good ness but not going overboard). Then, the big trip. Startinng with Russia, Europe and Australia. Extending to South America maybe a stop in Hong Kong (for personal reasons). Then back to my cosy little house to begin renovations. I want the bathroom to be amazing, the shower being the most important thing in that room. It will have so many jets of hot water shooting out you’ll think you’re in a pool, swimming. Next important rooms are the kitchen, the home office and the bedroom. Of third importance would be some kind of family room/ dining room option. Maybe a guest bedroom in case I feel like company. (Eventually I will, probably, though they can’t stay forever!). I want comfortable furniture made of good, solid wood and covered in denim or something vibrant and red. Wood floors with throw rugs, no damn ceramic tile anywhere! Ugh! Those are cold and they break everything that drops on them. Of course, while I was jaunting around the world the renovation crew would have put in a new furnace, electric system, water and roof, etc. All the necessary basics would be updated and improved. I’d never need to feel my house was like driving around in an old car waiting for it to die.

I’m not sure what kind of car I’d get. There are a few that come to mind. I like the new VW bugs, maybe a cheery yellow one or the orange would be nice. Today I saw another kind of car, midsized but very Mustang looking. Not that however, I think. Anyway, whatever car it would be new, mid-sized sedan type and good on gas. Most of all reliable, it will never break down or make rude noises. I will even consider hiring a full time car mechanic, gardener and butler to work around and keep everyting fixed and maintained. It is kind of nice to keep a man around the place. He could have a tidy little cottage somewhere on the grounds.

It would be so nice to win. Small chance of it happening, but someone is going to win. It could be me. Maybe that ticket I bought the nephew will have the lucky numbers.
