It's Official

I just called Pluckers in Killeen, Jeep night is still on for this Thursday from 6-9pm. The weather looks good, not quite 100, only 97 forecast so far.

Note to Dillon... is it ready?

Hope to see everyone there!!!

Good chicken, cold drinks, awesome Jeeps, and fun to watch people.

A Little Toasty

Just ran home for lunch. I think it's a little hot out. I didn't check the actual temperature, but it's hot. So I dash into the house to escape the inferno only to discover the AC is taking a break. I don't know if it's out completely, or just needs some help. It was 90 in the house, and the kitties were extremely cranky. I made sure they had lots of water, and cut off the unit. (It was still running, just blowing hot air) I turned the window unit on in the upstairs bedroom, so they should be cozy in there. Packed a quick lunch, and came back to the office. We have been having issues with the air here at the office, and thank goodness the AC guy came today. He changed the filters, and charged the units. He said one unit needs the coils cleaned, but recommends waiting till winter time to attempt that feat. He said it's far too hot out now to even imagine sitting on the roof breaking down the unit. I can't say that I blame him. Now I'm wishing I got his card, I need him to check out our AC at home. I bet it'll take a while to get anyone there, with this heat wave, all AC dudes are in high demand. I wonder if I can sleep in the office tonight.....


I'm attempting to create a Picasa album. Getting started, let me know what you think. I don't know how to load videos yet. I'm still sorting through my albums on my mac, so hope to have more pictures up before to long.

Tickets Please

My mom and I just booked our trip to Florida for August. Yeah, vacation!!! That may be the smallest bag to ever pack. Let's see, attire for Florida.... sundress, shorts, swim suit, & flip flops. I bet I can fit everything in a Wal-Mart bag. I may just go ahead and head to the airport tomorrow to make sure I don't miss this trip!!!

I've finished the Twilight series. Book 4 was good, when it got past the slow point. I've now been sucked back into Final Fantasy 7 on the PSP. Eragon the book has been staring me in the face, so I may pick it back up again here soon. I should pick it back up.

It's been hot outside, but that's a no brainer. Summer doesn't officially start until this up coming Sunday. I cannot begin to imagine how hot of a summer this is going to be, with a opening like this.

That's all I have for now. Just the usual points...
I love iPhone.
I hate Smart Cars.

Blah Blah Blah

Not much to say, just blogging to blog. Had to work today. It wasn't bad, just kind of slow. I took too long of a nap this afternoon. Now it's bed time and I'm wide awake. Just finished the Oreos and a glass of milk, hoping that will make me slightly sleepy. It's too quiet, I've liked the thunder the past couple of nights, and now it's calm out again.

My book came in Wednesday. I'm more than half way through it. I put it down yesterday, got a little irritated with it. It turned too childish, silly. I started reading again after work. It picked back up quickly, after the momentary lull. I'm kind of glad this it the last book in the series. Eragon was getting interesting, and now I think I miss it. I'm not the kind of person who can read several books at once, but I think I'll live.

I've been a total dork about the whole Twilight thing, reading up on all the gossip I can find about the movie(s) and actors. I came across some news that has me even more excited about "New Moon" the movie. They have casted (I think it's official) Dakota Fanning as "Jane". That is going to be amazing. Jane's character is described as an angelic looking child, appears to be a defenseless girl among the monsters. She seems overwhelmingly innocent, but has a dark power. She can induce torturous pain on whom she pleases with simply looking at them. I think Dakota would be perfect to play the part.

Any way, enough of the nerding around. I think I'm going to try to go to bed. I'm supposed to get up for early work tomorrow. I'm trying to get as much time in before it gets too hot. I'm not a fan of the heat, but living in Texas, you learn to get around it. Mornings aren't bad, so the earlier you get up and going, the quicker you can get back to the AC!!!

Attempting Links!!!

Jeep Night at Plucker's in Killeen, Texas.


It was fun. Good food, crazy people, cool Jeeps. I think the Cherokees weren't invited.

- And a special "Thank You" to Dillon for letting me bum his Picasa.

Long Time, No See

So it's been awhile since my last post. I've not been real busy, just not blogging. I'm waiting for book 4 of the Twilight series to come in, so I have time to blow. I ordered it from amazon.com. I thought I clicked 2 day shipping, but apparently I clicked snail mail (aka postal service). It was originally expected Tuesday this week, but now the eta is late this week, or early next. Until then, I'm reading Eragon. Not too bad, just different from my latest reading style. I also have FF7 on the PSP. That's good stuff.

We were in Houston yesterday, and forgot to get cat food. This morning Scooter was waiting very loudly by the bed. He promptly let us know it was breakfast time. He continued to inform us until Colt put what few crumbs there were left in his bowl, and Oliver's. Oliver didn't seem to mind, he's easy to please. Scooter, on the other hand, was getting on my nerves. It doesn't help that I'm not a morning person, and had issues of my own this morning. So I spent my lunch hour getting kitty food and taking it home before Scooter ate Oliver. (Although one less mouth to feed may be a financial relief) (But not my Fatty!!!)

We had the cats on "weight control" food since Scooter snores while he is awake. But they just ate more of that formula, didn't help at all. When we offered less than usual through out the day, they just nagged more often. When Scooter's not happy, nobody's happy!!! So I've given up and bought regular fat cat food. I'll just have to chase Scooter around more often.

Oh, and by the way......
High-Maintenance People Are Really Annoying!!!
