ROFL Thumper
Got an email in my spam asking me if I'd like to grow 2 inches. As I'm only 5' 2" I would love to grow 2 inches but somehow I don't think that's what the question is all about ;)

B5-From the Stars

Oh dear another star of the 60s passed on. I loved watching "The Avengers" with Mr Steed and Emma Peel and one of the best things about him was that he refused to carry a gun. He will be missed. RIP Patrick Macnee.

The relative in the Boston area who I share my birthday bash with in January has a daughter who gave birth to her own baby daughter yesterday morning giving her boyfriend the most wonderful Father's Day present. Little Violet Anne was born at 36 weeks weighing 7 lbs 4 ozs. Occasionally her birthday will again fall on Father's Day but it will even more often be the day of the Summer Solstice. What a lucky little girl. May she live a long and happy life.

Today I went to see the exhibition "Life of Cats" at the Japan Society. I'd put it off so long that unfortunately it was the second rotation but there were many from the first rotation so I don't think I missed that much. If you want to see something of what it was like you can watch this:

Ooh I found this vid of the first rotation. Yay!!!:

OMGosh exactly 12 years ago today the last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired. Tempus does fugit. In the years since I have yet to find a show that I'm as addicted to as I was to BtVS and I doubt I ever will *sigh*

My apologies. Apparently my Yahoo account was hacked again so a weird email was sent out that was NOT from me. I found out when Shakatany sent that email to the real me. I've changed my password once again so hopefully there will be no further weird least not until the next time I'm hacked *sigh*

Happy Mother's Day to everyone fortunate to still have one or be one.

Just want to share this amusing bit that happened yesterday: I was on Fifth Ave. waiting to cross to go to Central Park when a yellow hornet of some sort started circling and investigating me. It continued to do so as I crossed the street and entered the park until I said "I don't want you. Go away"...and it did!

Yesterday I went to my first street fair and bought a few things for presents for various birthdays and Xmas (I do my shopping early *g*). Today was the first day this year I walked in Central Park or anywhere without a jacket. Yep spring is definitely here and summer is on it's way as it will be in the 80s tomorrow.

I had a dream last night about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She was teaching at a school as was William aka Spike but something had happened to him so he couldn't easily vamp. Willow and Xander were somewhere there too but I didn't see them and Giles lived nearby and of course there was some sort of villain threatening them. The funny thing is while BtVS was on I don't recall having any dreams about it. Even though it's been over a decade since the show went off the air it apparently is still a part of me. Long live Buffy & co.

I walked in Central Park yesterday and today and there definitely are leaves growing on the trees and flowers like daffodils blooming all over. It was in the 70s yesterday and for the first time this year I wore sandals. Yep spring has indeed sprung (even though somewhere out west in snowed this week!!!!)

Came across this on a forum today:

If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.

After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud:

English Pronunciation by G. Nolst TrenitéCollapse )

This of course brought to mind an old scene from an episode of "I Love Lucy":
