  oh god, i hate being sick.
yeah, i'm still sick. i'm pretty sure i got sick twice actually; i started to feel better on saturday (i even picked up the house & went to the bookstore) and then BAM! i got bad again. this is all congestion, in my head and my chest. fun, fun. my house is a mess and it's driving me nuts 'cause i don't have any energy to clean it up. please let me get better soon!

i went to work today anyway, and the 2nd gig. it was a long day, but i'm glad i toughed it out. i about started crying when the traffic got slow on the way home, but hey, i eventually made it back to bed. oh, and i got actual channels to come in on the tv in my bedroom, so i really can't complain about how my day has gone.

ok, other stuff:

this chick on flickr has nestboxes set up around her property and takes pictures of the goings-on inside. it's the neatest thing!

a picture from today:



these guys JUST hatched. :D
http://flickr.com/photos/lucycat/ is where to find her pictures.

i finally got a capture of elliot how he sits all the time that's so cute. he looks like a little person!



see how he has his little arm up on the ledge thing? he sits like this all the time at night. i had to take this picture from outside, which is why it sucks.

and finally i got a pic of brutus! there's another one where he looks happy and is eating catnip, but this is the one that kinda gives a sneak peek at how bad his neck is.



he seems to be doing okay. he still runs away with a lot of energy if he gets the vibe i'm going to try anything funny. and he was loooovin' the catnip, which i was happy to see. a human with an untreated, uncovered wound like that would be, like, dead or something by now, though. poor big fella. :(

finally, it pays to keep the camera in bed with you:



this post isn't that long, it's just all the pictures...

okay, i came across this in a magazine today. it's paul allen's yacht, the octopus. cool name, huh?



413'. two helicopter landings. it has a recording studio. a theatre. a basketball court. a swimming pool. A SUBMARINE. yeah, i'm waiting on my next check to buy a book and someone out there owns a YACHT that has a SUBMARINE inside. agggh!

finally, a dolphin story. one of these days, they're going to grow thumbs.

Whee, great pics. Poor Brutus! :(

I hope you feel better soon. I'm sick too and I feel like crap. It sucks.

Making a difference

A small boy lived by the ocean. He loved the creatures of the sea, especially the starfish, and he spent much of his time exploring the seashore.

One day the boy learned there would be a minus tide that would leave the starfish stranded on the sand.

When the tide went out, he went down to the beach, began picking up the stranded starfish, and tossing them back into the ocean.

An elderly man who lived next door came down to the beach to see what the boy was doing. Seeing the man's quizzical expression, the boy paused as he approached. "I'm saving the starfish!" the boy proudly declared.

When the neighbor saw all of the stranded starfish he shook his head and said: "I'm sorry to disappoint you, young man, but if you look down the beach, there are stranded starfish as far as the eye can see. And if you look up the beach the other way, it's the same. One little boy like you isn't going to make much of a difference."

The boy thought about this for a moment. Then he reached his small hand down to the sand, picked up another starfish, tossed it out into the ocean, and said: "Well, I sure made a difference for that one!"
