My yard has its annual poppies popping up way too early! It is still Winter.

I love the little flames. They open at dawn and curl up tight at night.
They are wild and untamed. And a bit unkempt! Native flowers.

They are also the California State Flower.

I am too much of a teacher...sorry.

Daily Ornithology Lesson

Click for good enlargement.

This sleek, little man is called a Phainopepla. (Fey-na-pep-o-la)

The females still have the crown but are grey. Both have the red eyes.
You can see them in SoCal but they like to winter in the desert.
I just saw some in Jan. ( Yes, I was excited. Stop laughing).

Sheryl Had Breast Cancer Surgery!

They said she caught it early so she should be ok.
She had the procedure at a hospital near my house (not that I saw her or anything)

Hope she's ok...
Hope this isn't why they broke up.
Nahh, couldn't be. Even Lance isn't that much of a jerk.

Owl Love You

Ok I don't know if you can tell what this is, but don't despair, I'll solve the mystery.

It is an owl made of (bwaaahaahaa) seashells and googly eyes.

I don't know.
Who is the artist?
Again,don't know.

Why do I own it?
It was a joke gift from a sick individual.
It is from a thrift store called Out of the Closet and I love that sweet ,little shell owl!

Ode to Cookie

This is my mom's beloved dog, Cookie.
She died this week . She was such a sweetie.

She was no bigger than 6 pounds.

My poor mom is so sad.

The Tile is Almost In!

This is a terrible photo but it gives the feel of it.
I'll try a better one later!

We are making some progress with the house.
The tile in the kitchen is almost done.
It is a pretty slate-looking porcelain.
We picked up the dishwasher but it can't go in until the floor is done,
We have no stove so Mr. Bird is BBQ-ing so we can eat something besides
microwave food.
We are lucky to be able to bbq in February.

Court TV Junkie

I admit I really get into Court TV.
I like the trials and some of the shows.
The message board is crazy too.

Is Zach Cute?

I have a bit of a crush on Zach Braff, but it feels wrong.
Is he worthy?

I think he is..I like his nerdy, sensitive boy thing.

Violent Femmes

True, I know that this band is not the newness, but they are great.
I like these 2 albums,

Yes I said albums..uh I mean cds, or eh, downloads..
Crap,I feel old!

Sexy boots

Donna's Suicide

Great movie and great band.

The Virgin Suicides movie and The Donnas rockers.

Like em both.

Lovely Pin Up

I think Bettie Page had such a good look. She was a great cheesecake. I know she regrets it now, but, Bettie..don't worry. God does love you.

She is pretty much of my ideal of beauty.

Belted Kingfisher

This bird is punkrock..check out his hair.

He dives in the water and gets fish. This type lives in my area. (West Coast)

Some Movies I Like

Garden State= cute and funny

The Ice Storm= Fascinating. I have seen this a bunch of times.

Slacker (not Slackers)=This very unique and creative

The Usual Suspects= great suspense

Napoleon=Cult Hilarity...who doesn't love this movie?

Ghostworld = Very nice indie (and a young Scarlet Johanson who doesn't hold a candle to Thora Birch)


Requiem for a Dream = intense, very raw, painful study of different addictions

Fargo=Very good acting and cool plot (no pun intended)

They may not be everyone's cup of tea but I liked 'em

Ah Detective Stabler

He's so very nice!

Oh, and mindbendingly hot.
There is so something about him that I love.

Yes I'm married, I know.
So is he. I know.

Bring on the Bulldozers

Not Really!
But it feels like my house is amost in this shape.
We are remodeling a lot and doing it ourselves. Right now the entire kitchen is gone!
It's strange having a fridge in the dining room and bags of grout in the hallway.
I keep losing everything.
Glad I worked so hard this weekend. NOT!

I love Vitamin Water!

The green tea and dragonfruit are delicious!

They are all pretty tasty.

C'mon All You Mathaletes

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 10/10 correct!

Can you tell I love these quizes?

But really, this is more like 5th grade math!

This is Cool, But Not Really Like Me

Who Should Paint You: Roy Lichtenstein

Larger than life, your personality overshadows everyone in the room
A painter would tend to portray you with a bit of added flair!

I don't have a BIG personality.

Maybe a little flair :)

Oh Great I'm an Old Fogie

You Are an Old Soul

You are an experienced soul who appreciates tradition.
Mellow and wise, you like to be with others but also to be alone.
Down to earth, you are sensible and impatient.
A creature of habit, it takes you a while to warm up to new people.

You hate injustice, and you're very protective of family and friends
A bit demanding, you expect proper behavior from others.
Extremely independent you don't mind living or being alone.
But when you find love, you tend to want marriage right away.

Souls you are most compatible with: Warrior Soul and Visionary Soul

This is soooooooo me.
My husband got: "Dreaming Soul"
