    I love all kinds of animals, but especially dogs. I enjoy all kinds of music, though I'm not particularly fond of country or most current pop music. I kind of take pride in finding obscure artists. I'm a lifelong environmentalist, and I try to keep informed of the developments in environmental science. I'm a dedicated liberal, and I really dislike American politics for the most part... it feels like I'm choosing the lesser of two evils every time I vote. I really have enjoyed travelling the last few years, but my favorite place to go will always be the Rocky Mountains.
  1. And LZChick, I don't know what your mom's tests were for, but if they are what I think they are, I am happy for you too. I know how hard it is to wait and wait for news like that... it's the one thing that I wish oncology labs could get figured out. It almost takes more of a toll on the patient and their family to wait weeks for results than it does to actually begin the battle. Faster turnarounds sure would ease a lot of suffering all around.
  2. Today I was happy that I got all the rest of my office packing done so that I am now ready to move into the basement while our floor is being remodeled. This has been an ongoing thing where we were told to be ready like 4 months ago and are just NOW getting to move on Monday. I'm just very happy that we're finally moving forward with the whole thing and no one has to feel like they're being left in limbo anymore. And I'm really thrilled for the people who've been stuck in the basement for almost 6 months that they get to be going back to their floor with everything all done and brand new!
  3. It's actually been relatively pleasant here.. daytime highs in the mid-40's for the past couple of days, and lots of sunshine. I'm glad, I really needed a break from the clouds and the cold. Hey, at this time of year, as long as it's above absolute zero, I'm happy!
  4. I don't know that you could call Elvis a county artist. Maybe by today's standards....
  5. It was a whopping 2 degrees F when I got up this morning, and I believe it got down to around -5 last night. Yesterday was miserable- I think it reached 15 degrees F during the day, but we had a very stiff NW wind that probably brought the windchill down to very near 0. But we're supposed to warm up over the next few days, maybe even reach 45 or higher Sunday! I can hardly wait for that... it will feel like summer...
  6. Ha ha, I agree! Joel, I really have meant to say that I have been enjoying your pictures from this time of your life. It reminds me a lot of the pictures my mom has of her and her brothers in childhood... and oddly, you and my uncle Mike very much resemble each other as little kids, but not these days. And your mom looks beautiful, by the way- very statuesque!
  7. Um, none of the above. My vote's on Keller Williams.
  8. Me too! Chicken, looking cute as a button as always- and WTF, Nick's taller than you?! I really haven't been around in awhile...
  9. Well, that definitely sounds like my kind of event!
  10. CHICKEN! I have missed you! And just guess what I came across when I was packing up all of my stuff to move (again)... I'm gonna need your address again!
  11. Absolutely. I'm pretty darn tired of this cold already... seems like it got and stayed cold earlier this year than normal, so most of us are already really sick of it. I'm thinking it sounds like a better and better idea to sock away that money for a trip somewhere tropical next year...
  12. I was made an Honorary Canadian during a geology conference I attended with my master's adviser, an honor so bestowed by a group of lovely people from the University of Waterloo. And I've wanted to move to Canada pretty much since 2000... Does that count?
  13. It feels like it will be a little warmer today, and the forecast calls for it to be in the 30's, but a chance of snow beginning tonight, into tomorrow.
  14. Well, my sister invites us all to her house every year- more of a "stay off the streets with the drunk people" effort than anything. It's fun, though- we have lots of food, usually watch a movie or two, play some games... we have a good time. This year I'm taking a ton of food over there, but I will not be staying much past midnight because I promised my friends that if they can get themselves TO the bar, I will come and pick them up. They were fighting over who had to be DD, so I decided to just clear it up since I won't be drinking anyway. So then, I'm sure, I'll be at the after-hours party for awhile.
  15. Lookin' better all the time, neutral. Though I have to say you're looking more like Heath Ledger these days than Jim Morrison. Not that that's a bad thing...
