Mojo’s mad

October 18, 2004

This was quite the interesting day. Nothing out of the ordinary for most of the day, but we discovered an AP photo of John Kerry campaigning in Xenia holding up a copy of the Courier. There was a big brouhaha last week regarding something John Snow said during a visit to Findlay, and the Dems picked it up and ran with it. If you want to read about it, go to the Courier Web site and look at last Tuesday or Wednesday’s stories (I don’t remember which day it was). Anyway, we put the picture on the front page for today’s paper with a happy little campaign roundup story.

After the paper was out, I was cruising the Courier’s public forum on the Web site, and discovered that some chicken-shit anonymous person posted the address for my Web site on the forum. I can’t figure out why, though. I rarely post anything on there, and as far as I know I haven’t severely pissed anyone off. I find it amusing that this person didn’t have the nerve to put their name with their trickery. Grow up! But I figure hey, maybe my fanbase will double to six!

So, I head home, hoping to catch a few minutes of the Yankees/Red Sox game *cough cough* lucky bastards *cough cough* to discover that Mojo had peed all over Dave because one of his friends was here and demanded to see Mojo. Dave tried to take Mojo downstairs and Mojo got scared and peed all over and then went and hid. Anyway, I get home to discover that we have to give poor Mojo a bath because he was soaking wet and stinky and yucky. I ended up basically taking a bath with him, because he fought more than he’s ever fought when we’ve had to give him a bath. It’s madness, madness I tell you!

After that, I had to shower and get all the Mojo fur off me. Then I worked on the site to make my new friends feel welcome and to update some of the info, and here I am.

I have to tell you, I am so freaking psyched about going to see keith urban next month! I’ve been listening to “Golden Road” over and over and over, and it kicks my ass! I’ve got to go out and get his other two CDs so I can sing along to those too. But I’m telling you, if you buy one CD this year (what’s left of it, anyway) it should be “Golden Road.” DO IT! No, shhhh, just buy it, I don’t care if you don’t like country music. Buy it.

Oh, something else. Certain women in my life have told me that I have a northwest Ohio accent. To them I say Shut It. I refuse to believe it. But I still love you.

*BURN UPDATE* It’s dreading that nasty s-word: SNOW

It’s rare these days that the computer’s free when I get home from work. Dave’s teaching online classes now, so he spends a lot of time on this here machine. It just doesn’t seem right to say “Hey, stop doing work so I can mess around online,” ya know?

Lots of stuff has gone on since my last post, not much of it very interesting. Most of it’s just the little kinds of things that’s of no interest to anyone but me, and maybe Dave.

Well, Dave and I celebrated our third anniversary. That was more interesting than most things. We were married Sept. 8, 2001. That’s right! We were in Canada on a mini-honeymoon on Sept. 11. I was going to write about that on Sept. 11 this year, but I just really didn’t feel like it. Maybe next year. On a happy note, Dave got me (us) surround sound for our anniversary, and it’s pretty damn cool. Three little speakers on the front wall, one big speaker by the entertainment center, and two little speakers behind the couch. It’s crazy to hear the little sounds you’ve never noticed before when you’re sitting on the couch watching a movie.

We took my co-worker Kurt and his twin girls fishing at my parents’ house a couple weeks ago. Good times were had by all. I actually did some fishing, which I haven’t done in several years. I was impressed that I can still cast, but I lost one on Dave’s pole ’cause I pulled a little too hard and the line snapped. Oh well.

Rusty has the fleas, so he got a bath last week, and all three animals got a Frontline treatment yesterday. They were not impressed, and Rusty did a bit of peeing in the living room and kitchen. He tends to get scared when both of us come at him, can’t imagine why. Just because it usually means bathtime or trouble…

I took a bracelet-making class with Joy a few weeks ago, and I’m quite proud of the results. I tried to take a picture of it to put on the Web site, but it’s a bit blurry. We’ll see how it looks. Joy and I are taking an earring-making class next week, and then we’re gonna head to Hobby Lobby and go bead crazy. Woo-hoo!

I’ve been in a semi-crafty mood lately. I finished curtains for one living room window (except for the ties) on Sunday, and I’m hoping to start work on the ones for the other living room window on Thursday before our new weekly pool date with Dave’s friends. I’m also really in the mood to do that Barbie doll dress thing again (can I say again if I really only ever made one practice dress?). And as far as I know, I’m making Dave’s Dumbledore costume this year in hopes that we get happy little trick-or-treaters now that we live in a house. So much to make, so little time.

Well, I want to go mess around with my site now, so nighty-night!

*BURN UPDATE* It’s looking forward to fall/winter when I go back to being pasty white so it will show up better.
