The Cos

Cos it's about time!

In case you haven't heard, Bill Cosby won the Mark Twain award for humor yesterday. I am so happy for him!! I think it is well deserved because Mr. Cosby is a very talented man, in my opinion. What is amazing to me about him is that he can just make a face and make me fall apart with laughter. Not too many people can achieve this as far as I'm concerned. I remember watching reruns of his stand-up comedy and I would start laughing before I knew what he was going to say because I knew what was coming...something really funny! Congratulations Mr. Cosby, I think this is long overdue, but probably well worth the wait.

:) <---- Imagine his smiling face... Cos it's better when he does it!

This Little Piggy...

Came home with me!

I've always wanted a pig. I think the story Charlotte's Web helped me decide that pigs were awesome. And then I found out how incredibly smart they were and...that was it - I have a thing for really smart animals, they are so amazing and I want to own them all!! Ok, truthfully, I know my limitations and owning a bunch of animals - especially smart animals - is not a good idea for me. Heck, I have a hard time taking care of myself and the three animals I have now. I have a dog and two rabbits. Messy rabbits. So anyway, getting back to pigs... I always thought it would be so much fun to own one until I found out how large they could become and how it would not be fair to them to keep them in a small house or a small yard. But now, they have MICRO pigs... and I'm waiting!!!! They are not available in the US yet.... Not 100% that I would get one, but it's fun to dream. I would at least want to see them up close and hold one. They get to anywhere from 45lbs to 65lbs, which is pretty big and a bit heavy to carry around. I really hope people do their research and treat these new pets well. I know I'll do my research when they come to the states. I don't think I'll have the resources to own one for a while, but maybe someday...

Oh, here's the link to the Micro Pigs:

Trick or Treat

Smell my feet!!

How about the smell of those face makeup sticks? From what I remember they had a very distinct smell. I always liked when my mom had to paint my face to go with my costume because I liked the smell of them. I know...weird... Oh well, I never claimed normalcy. Well, I haven't smelled those sticks in a very long time. This year I think I'll find a painted trick or treater and get a good whiff. Ha, that's a little creepy... Maybe I'll just stick to the faint leftover memory of the smell.

Behold the Behold....

I have a Samsung Behold and I love it. I was trying to hold off for an iPhone but the problems with my old phone were getting rather annoying. I decided to go for a lower end smart phone, but a nice one. Low end? This is pretty neat for low end. I have a 5 mp camera, an mp3 player, and an awesome touch screen keypad that will even work with the tips of my fairly short fingernails. Now, all I need is the data plan that comes with it. I am trying my best to live within my means. It's tough, but I understand the true meaning of earning everything I have. I think it helps to appreciate those things a little more than I would if I have just been given everything. And I really appreciate my phone. It is such an upgrade from my old phone. I love that I can have my touch screen for a decent price and can move to the data plan when I am ready. This phone is a perfect fit for me. I would recommend this phone to The Pope!

The Delorean

Here is not the best picture of me circa 2001. I am posting it because it was a nice picture of the vehicle (via my dad). I already admitted to loving the "Back to the Future" movies... but the car was sooo cool!!! I think this is another one of the things from my childhood that helped push me into the tech world.... I know... Geek...

'Cause I Gotta Have Faith...

If you are like me, sometimes you have to remind yourself to have a little faith.

Things will not always turn out as you expect them to, but have faith that things will be ok.

You have to first of all, trust yourself. Trust that you can accomplish what you want to. Trust that you can be who you want to be.

Then trust others. Trust that most people are not out to bring you harm. Trust that some people are simply not thinking about you - as you are probably not thinking about them. Trust that others are truly thinking about you even if it doesn't seem possible.

Just have faith. Okay?

I have faith that this strange post makes perfect sense to you... :)
