i been quiet 'cause i been sick. that thang that been goin' around done got me!
i felt pretty bad thursday, like death on friday, but it's eased into just annoying since then, more or less. i even got to go out on the boat this weekend - twice! i have some pictures and stuff, which i'm fixin' to get up tomorrow night.
i also managed to rescue a little ribbon snake from the neighbor's abandoned swimming pool today, after following oreo into their yard (she's like lassie! for snakes!). it was swimming around but, um... i've seen those things around and i'm pretty sure they are not water snakes
and certainly not swimming pool snakes
... and there was no way for it to get out. so that made me happy. :)
also, the bonus of this little adventure into the empty house's yard was discovering the little rock-pond thing they have is full of standing water. so, of course, we basically have a MOSQUITO NURSERY 10 feet from our bedroom window. little swimming larvae everywhere. and to think, just today
we were cursing the insane amount of mosquitos we have... MOSQUITOS LOVE CHRIS to a degree most people would not believe (if i told you, you'd think i was exaggerating, it's seriously unreal), so to know that they're over there, GROWING, GETTING STRONGER... it's not good. i'm buying a fatal-to-mosquito-larvae-only stuff tomorrow at the home depot.
ok, back to my stupid paper revision.
