I went for a walk and ate pudding. And broadcast live to you across town.
Pudding is a good idea. I love you.
Phone is capable but must be silent. Jokes acceptable.
My basil is growing fabulously. I just spent almost two hours weeding a garden that I haven't been able to get to for two weeks due to pouring rain, and it desperately needed my attention. I was amazed to find that my basil was doing awesome, and that my hot pepper plant had actually produced a fully grown pepper! Even my tomato plants (sad little things because of too much rain and almost no sun) have two little green tomatoes growing.
I never knew ignoring my garden would work so well...
EDIT: Meant to ask, do you have a vegetable garden? I know you have a garden, but wasn't sure if it produces edibles.

Crap. I bought a basil plant the other day and in the mxst of all this forgot to plant it. It's probably dead now. Grr.
To answer your question, I have an herb garden and raspberries. I keep saying I'm going to add veggies, but spring seems to bring crisis every year.
I just flew in from Chicago, and BOY ARE MY ARMS TIRED.
I didn't have to eat the registration fee for this two-day seminar.
Which would have tasted better: Eating hospital food or eating the registration fee? Bah-dum dum!
Oh, and a bit of helpful information for you. In the event of a power failure, a 1970s-era Honywell home alarm system will re-arm itself once electricity is restored. Even if it was disarmed when power was lost. This can pose a bit of a problem if the first person to return home doesn't remember the disarm code.
That sounds ... unfortunate.
I would have to say the hospital food is easier to eat - but only because it's cheaper.
ugh... CLE courses.. i'm so glad i don't do those anymore!
when i'm bored, i like to google various county's mug shots and try to guess the crime.
glad your husband is alive and well!
I'm glad too!
Woot!!! I'm thrilled they're finally coming out!
Laughing out loud during lecture not so good!!
My cat's breath smells like tuna.
Sorry, that's the best I've got :)
I spent an hour this morning helping my "American" grandparents get on Facebook. My American grandpa was born in 1925. Zuckerberg has officially taken over the world.
Did you ever watch season 5 of Babylon 5? What were your impressions, if so?
I tried. It was dreadful. I did watch the series finale, which was good. But the rest of it was painful.
(thinks of random entertainingness...)
Spinal Tap has their first new album out in many years.http://spinaltap.com/
The site has some pretty funny samples of what's in store.
Amusing, but I had to wait until post-CLE since playing music during would have been exceptionally rude! ;-)
I wrote about Mimosa trees - film at 11! Er, rather ehow article in 3 or 4 days.
Nifty optical illusion - and maybe relevant to a quilter: Blue and Green
That is completely awesome.
I am amused that Continuing Legal Education compresses to our local airport code. And at my confusion that occurred as a result of the ambiguity.
Jokes, hmmm. I think I've told you all the good ones short enough for an LJ input field that I know. In lieu, I submit once again: http://rolcats.com/
That gave me a laugh. Thanks.
I spent the morning cleaning off my pit of a dresser and found mail from Jan... *so asheamed*
In other news found missing socks too!
I know Ferrett plays D&D, but I can't remember if you do. Have you tried it, and if so, tell me more! I just got certified to run games at RPGA events, so I am hyped about D&D 4E.
Not really classic D&D, but I have roleplayed. I really enjoy it and love playing complicated characters who have lots of growing to do. My user name actually is the name of the character I played in the first tabletop rpg I ever played.

My toast is making snap-crackle-pop noises!
There is a bright yellow Ferrari outside and its killing me that with all my Top Gear watching I wasn't able to figure out what KIND of Ferrari it was.
Today's reading list:
* a book about a legally blind woman who was raped and then pressured by the cops to recant and admit she made it up... And then prosecuted for false reporting. I'm halfway through it but had to stop because I was in a blind fury (ha). It's called "Cry Rape."
*i finished a book about the stories behind every Pink Floyd song up til 1996. It was interesting but a little disappointing, and I'm not quite sure why. (That one is "Another Brick in the Wall" by Cliff Jones)
* I have been reading "Talk to the Hand" by Lynne Truss (of "Eats, Shoots & Leaves" fame). I totally find myself nodding along at her observations on courtesy (or, rather, the lack thereof) and how we respond to it.
* I also ate six pieces of english butter toffee.
* Really, I should be stuffing envelopes, buying more stamps for those thrice-damned envelopes (mailing out the proposed changes to the Iowa Association of the Deaf's bylaws to all the members), looking for a job, turning in applications, and mowing the grass. I felt my time was better spent lolling in bed with books and butter toffee.
* what do you do while you're sitting at the hospital? Do you read? Pace? Craft?
I have just been rousted from my comfortable perch by a very insistent little Bugg named Daisy, who is certain that I need to play tug with her RIGHT NOW or the world will end.
My hospital time has been mostly just paying attention to Ferrett. I haven't taken craft stuff up there, and have had trouble concentrating to read.
Interesting book choices.
I'm at work in the mall. I've recently gotten on a fitness kick, with attempts at exercising everyday. Yesterday I finally acknowledged that I have a pulled muscle between my upper thigh and groin. It hurts quite badly.
Sometimes I want so hard to be helpful and useful that I end up being condescending. I'm trying to figure out how to strike a happy balance.
I will get you info soon. Not at my fingertips.
All I can think about is cross stitching. Morning, noon, and night. At work, while I study, as I lay in bed. I've started making designs on an Excel grid. Little Cthulhus and chainsaws. It's addicting.
