Dawson Says 'Hi!'

I'm dog & house sitting for Corey & Jonas whilst they are galavanting about NYC Pride. This pic of Dawson being cute in the sunset was too adorable not to share. :D

How cute!

Microhyla nepenthicola
Microhyla nepenthicola - micro-frog from Borneo

I want some. they are adorable. Apparently these micro-frogs breed in vegetarian pitcher plants in Borneo. They are less than 1/2 an inch long.

Though, they aren’t the smallest. That honor goes to a little Cuban frog called Eleutherodactylus iberia that is about 1cm long.

My first upload to YouTube. Incredibly boring, but I did it all on the new iPhone.

Around a dozen toads attempting to mate in my rain diluted, but still chlorinated swimming pool. I hope they don’t expect their endeavors to be successful. It’s amazing how loud they are.

I’m not looking forward to skimming out all the eggs tomorrow.

UPDATE: I rescued 15 live male toads this morning … 3 dead ones. One of which was the female. :^/ Most of them were in the skimmer. So I had at least 18 out there last night.

Eat @ Chili's today!

For those of you in Dallas & McKinney who eat @ Chili’s from time to time, today would be a good day to go. Print out this flyer & take it with you to the Knox St. Chili’s in Dallas or the Custer Rd. Chili’s in McKinney. 10% of your check will go to the SPCA of Texas.

Just realized...

Wow … I just realized it’s been 6 months today.

I hadn’t cried in a while. I miss him.

Blue Decorations

Mentality, Menagerie 1 feedback »

I was finally starting to put away Clarence’s carrier & stuff to make room for the Christmas tree, so I was a bit down to begin with. And would you believe that the first song to play off the Holiday playlist on my iPod was Blue Decorations by B.B. King.

Blue Decorations

Lyrics & Music: Jerry Gillespie
As Performed by: B.B. King

Blue Decorations, on my Christmas tree.
The saddest time of the year,
‘Cause you’re not here with me.
But I hung you a stockin’,
Just in case you’re free.
Blue Decorations, on my Christmas tree.

You know the spirit of Christmas,
Is sure hard to share alone.
When you once had it all,
But now all you had is gone.
All the children are singin’,
The saddest melodies.
Blue Decorations, on my Christmas tree.

Ho ho ho,
I don’t feel Christmassy.

They call it a holiday,
But they all are the same to me.
Like these Blue Decorations,
on my Christmas tree.

The forecast is cloudy,
______y, sad and cold.
And the weather man says,
We’re gonna get some snow.
I guess I’ll open my presents,
To me, From me.

‘Neath these Blue Decorations,
on my Christmas tree.
Ho ho ho
Oh, I don’t feel Christmassy.

I transcribed them myself, cos I couldn’t find them anywhere (something the Google didn’t know), so the “______y” is a word I couldn’t discern.

Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well.

— Buddha

This was my quote of the day yesterday. It seemed particularly apropos. The word of the day was:

empyrean: the most highest heavenly state

That “most highest” part bugs the grammar nazi in me. :)
