A thing and an other thing

This is a meme I "borrowed" from Lime. Lime is one of those GOOD bloggers.
She posts regularly, says interesting things, and visits other people's blogs.
5 things found in your bag:
Well, here this will be quicker, let me show you.
Change purse, Advil, mints in a Happy Bunny tin, chapstick stuff, drug pens, nice pen in metal carrying thingee, paper, and a hair band.
You will notice there is no wallet there, that is because I actually carry it with me.
So it goes on the counter, beside my new phone. Yes, I know it's not as cool as the last one, I don't want to talk about it.

5 favorite things in your room:
That should count as a couple things, I love my pillow, and my mattress, and my blankets, ooooh how I love me bed. You can do so many lovely things in it. Yes, you pervs, I meant that, but also the sleeping and the reading.
The following things are doo dads on my dresser. I am not really into collecting things but these are awfully pretty. That one? Yeah, it's a Faberge egg. For years, when I was asked if I collected anything I would say Faberge eggs, just to be difficult. So he got me one :P I love that man.

5 things you have always wanted to do:

I want to actually see a priest, a rabbi, and a minister walk into a bar, I think that counts as 3 things, don't you?
4. I want to get an adequate explanation for why negative numbers are called real numbers

(You think they are real? Ok, hand me -4 apples. Alrighty then, that ain't real).

5. I still want to go to Paris.

5 things you are currently into:

1. Wii Sports™ (I am kicking @$$ at Wii Tennis, something I could never do at real tennis).

2. xkcd tee hee hee

3. Supporting locally owned businesses

4. A beautiful May day,

also, unfortunately, allergy season.



I am also suppose to tag people, but you know how I feel about that.

Oh, and the other thing, my kids and I have been digging this lately.

It's National Poetry Month, did you know?

I thought I would share another of my favorite poems with you all. I have rather a lot of them, but I've tried to part them out over time so as not to be tiresome. Anyway, if you have a favorite poem, and you are willing to tell us about it, stick it on your comment, or a link to it, per favore, and we can all share the love.

i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

These pics just saved me 1.3 x 10^4 words

This is a picture of Thing One taken while harassing him in his room. He still finds me amusing from time to time, it's very endearing.
Here is the Princess and namesake of this blog. She is engaging in one of her favorite pastimes,
growling at me for some reason or other. Not a mean growl, more of a, "You can pet me now."
or, "A treat would be appropriate at this juncture."
or, "You do intend to let me sit on your lap...right?"

Here is her other favorite pastime.

Here is Thing One riding their trike through the yard.

Thing Two is pictured here practicing his cursive writing.

You can't see them too well but I have my new chairs in the breakfast room,


The Things love their new Wii. I'm not sure which game they are playing here but it really is an awful lot of fun

(notice Thing Two's stellar fashion stylin').

The Things both just tested in karate and this is my yellow belted Thing.

Here they are doing some half hearted sparring.
Thing One just earned his yellow belt and they both seem to be enjoying the classes.
The little one decided to trade up on big brother and went for a little street action instead of a block, tee hee.

Now, hopefully you found something of interest up there because I'm going to talk about me again :p
This last weekend I met Mr. Logo in Seattle and we headed across the mountains on I-90.
About ten miles from the summit traffic stopped dead in the road. We wandered over to a trucker to get the news and learned an avalanche was being cleared. We were looking at a one hour delay...minimum.
After checking the ground, and for cops :p, we rode our motorcycles across the median and headed north to another pass. We earned many dirty looks, but we comforted ourselves with the idea they were jealous rather than disapproving. Hey, it's my story, I'll tell it how I like!

Since we started the trip like that we figured why NOT interfere with museum displays and ignore No Tresspassing signs?
We didn't get caught but we have decided a life of crime does not suit us.
However, we still walk on the grass when the mood strikes.

What I did this weekend

This weekend the Things went and spent some quality time with the Aged Ps. They bowled and swam, and played board games and generally enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Mr. Logo and I took the opportunity to boogey out of town on our motorbikes.

Here is the Columbia River, innit wet? ;p
We went to a little museum where Mr. Logo was viciously attacked by a mountain lion.
Here I am showcasing my Vanna White skills.
See that little bright speck on the road?
It's MEEEEEE, in my new super-bright, super-insulated, super-safe riding jacket!

It was so fuuuuuuuuun! It was also really warm and sunny on the other side of the mountains, the mountain passes were a little chilly but over all it was a good trip.

Oh, I will have to tell you about our criminal escapades on the trip! That will be another post though.

Musical Monday

Sometimes Susie does a post on Mondays about music, and I enjoy them.
I thought I would do one today.

Muse~ Invincible
I've been loving this song, even if you don't endure the rest, try this one, it's worth a listen.

Alanis Morissette~ 8 Easy Steps
This song is set to a montage of Heroes scenes. I like both of those things, see what you think.

Intertude~Morrissey and Siouxsie
Ooooooo, sexy, set to a movie.

The Hives~Tick Tick Boom

The Verve~Bittersweet Symphony
Oldie but goody

Beck~ Girl
Not exactly new but I like it

Cute little things in my breakfast room

Here are my tomato plants. They are growing nicely.
One has even produced a teeny, tiny lil tomato, isn't it cute?!?
Here is another favorite Thing of mine waking up with a cup of tea in the breakfast room.
