11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? Either way, I’m still gonna have to pee every 15 minutes so really, there’s no difference.

12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? Why would keeping it from you be better for you? I don’t think I would. Although it really would depend on the situation I guess.

14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? Avril Lavigne *shifty eyes*

15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: Just ONE? Crap. I hate feet. I cannot look at them, they give me the willies. I will not even watch commercial that have feet in them. Ew.

16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the ‘world peace etc’ malarkey) – what are they: I like the super power idea, so I’m going to work that… I want to be able to fly/throw fire (like Firestar), I want magical powers like the Charmed Ones, I want to have a successful recording contract.

water the grass, water the dogs

Today is apparently Saturday. I get all confuzzled when I have my Fridays off. This morning was great weather, sunny, breezy and cool (16°C and then about 20°C). I had to go out and water the lawn and then decided that it was high time Annie had her bath. Hee. I am an evil woman. Annie was supposed to be bathed over a month ago, when Jinx was, but she wanted to get out bathing so badly she went and made sure she had to have surgery!

I sat out back while Annie and Jinx dried off (Jinx didn’t have a bath, per say, he just likes to jump in the water made by the hose) and thought, oooh! Perfect opportunity for photos!

Annie inspecting the yard

Here is Annie inspecting the yard. She pointed out all the grassy parts that are dying. It was only natural that we lost some of the sod we put down, it has only been a week. No matter how much I water it, it still isn’t the same green as the original lawn (as those of you who aren’t colour blind will see). Hopefully it’ll make it through July… July tends to kill vegetation with it’s hot sun and extreme heat and lack of rain.

Once the lawn inspecting was over, Annie finally decided to lay down and dry off in the sun (which was an accident, but I’ll take what I can get!)

where did my legs go?

Of course it sort of looks like she’s missing her legs in this photo. Heehee!

heh

This is Annie looking stoned. Which she probably was because she isn’t normally out in the sun/grass/outside for as long as she was. I think she was high on UV rays.

Jinx of course, didn’t care that he was outdoors. He is more than happy to lay in whatever soggy grass he can find.

one with the grass

I am one with the grass. Ohhmmmmmmm!

Jinx and Annie are also excellent at hiding. I’ll bet you can’t even find them in the following two photos!

where's Jinx?

Where’s Jinx? Heck if I know!

one of these things is not like the other

Nobody here but us shiny, black, backyard appliance thingies. And Oscar the Grouch!

See? It’s like they have magical ninja powers of stealth!

And apparently it’s our wedding anniversary this weekend. Oops. Two years married we will be. And guess what? Shawn found out LAST NIGHT AT WORK that he HAS to WORK on MONDAY. (A holiday AND our anniversary). Lovely. Nothing like telling people at the last minute. One day Shawn will find a better job and leave those fucktards in the dust. I hate his company with all my being. The only saving grace is that he’ll be working nights for the foreseeable future (which sucks) but at least we’ll be able to spend most of Monday together. So much for any dinner plans though. 🙁

And now my father-in-law has arrived and –  THEY BROUGHT THEIR DOG – I am NOT HAPPY. Sigh. Must go…

too busy, too hot, too tired to post

So I post this for you people who are not living in a too hot climate and aren’t too busy and too tired to answer. So what you do, see? Is copy and past the questions below into the comment section, see? And then answer them for me, kay?

So please humour me as I melt and wilt and die of heat stroke (although it IS going to be much cooler tonight, so huzzah!)

it’s 40°C again, wheee!

I hate this weather. Hate, hate, hate! Why the hell did God, or whomever have to invent %$##@ humidity? Ugh.

I’d better be extra good so I don’t end up in hell and have to live with this all the time.

But the good news is that our air conditioner worked very well last night and I was able to sleep (as well as I normally do, which isn’t saying much). But I only had to get up to pee like, 6 times. So it was a decent enough night’s sleep.

In other news… I miss my husband. If he didn’t get up to drive me into work in the mornings I wouldn’t see him except when I got up to pee in the night and looked at him sleeping next to me.

updated, ugh

40 degree Celsius = 104 degree Fahrenheit

*whimper*
