advent calendar 14,15,16 - youtube goodies

day 14 - cause the stars actually beat the red wings. too bad we didnt do it in the play-offs last year. an oldie, but a goodie.

day 15 - in honour of the really awesome train show we went to on sunday

day 16 - with the exception of austin city limits, i just know of no other place on tv to just listen to awesome musicians jam away. i really think i was born in the wrong time.

advent calendar 11,12,13 - random bag

day 11 -

i totes meant to post this on thursday when it happened. one of the cool things about living within strike distance of a joint naval air station is that it's the air show everyday. one of the crappy things is that it's the air show, everyday, often at 11 at night. but the other day i really thought lack of caffeine was making me see things. nope. the space shuttle's trip home included a path directly over our house. i guess the last time that happened was 1997.

day 12 -
i have a twin in jersey. they even used "rub two brain cells together" - i use that all the time. i would totally write a note like this. and passive-aggressive notes kicks so much more ass than post secret. i remember reading an article in the city paper in DC when they guy first started doing it - sounded interesting and cathartic. now everyone just seems to be out-emoing themselves. if i wrote a post secret it would be "im only doing this to get interwebs attention." id do it in sharpie on some wistful sunset picture. then id throw glitterglue on it.

day 13 - ugly christmas sweater generator sorry no photos. dont feel like it.

advent calendar day 9 - wow wow wubbzy

ive been meaning to blog about my love for wow wow wubbzy and now ive got a perfect excuse.

i love wubbzy cause:
  1. wubbzy is gender neutral. ze's yellow and while i guess technically male, they really dont make a big deal about it.
  2. walden is done by carlos alazraqui from reno 911, which makes me giggle.
  3. widget (the girl character) loves tools and building
  4. the songs are awesome. even buddytwo has started singing "dont lie." they're the only words he knows but oh well.
  5. the picture above. that little boy's parents are totally awesome for making their son that costume

advent calendar day 7 and 8

sundays have turned into "screen-free" day (besides very basic e-mail checking and if we need to find something) so i didnt get to do the advent calendar. kinda forgot to do the boys' real life ones as well. whoops. so you folks get a two-fer.

i remember seeing these when i was pregnant with buddyone. i think they only had 6 or 7 of them at the time. they've really expanded.

who thought mono could be so cute?

advent calendar catch-up, kitty edition

day one - meet crassus.

last saturday morning we discovered this guy sleeping on our patio furniture. unlike the other ferals, he brushed us off when we tapped on the glass. when he finally got up just before sun set, i noticed he was incredibly skinny - even for the possible siamese in him. his hips looked stiff and his coat just hung on him. with all the empty rentals and houses that have been for sale for months, i have to wonder if he was a "foreclosure"- somebody rented a house only to find a half starved cat left in it and let it go to whatever fate it had in store. ive never seen him before and even the ferals im not feeding have plenty of fat on them (see the next picture for comparison).

day two - meet marius.

i took this picture from our bedroom window - the first time i saw him there, he must have heard us and ran off. he's sitting on our patio furniture - must be very popular. buddytwo (who i wanted to name marius) loves him. even now, he goes to the window and says "mar-is. mar-is." this is one of the resident cats in the colony.

day three. my babies.

i finally caught them being snuggly and the camera was charged/had space.
enjoy the warm fuzzies.

advent calendar day five - chung chung

on a sesame street kick.
