Random bits...

It's hilarious watching Morrigan bound 2+ ft into the air, just to pounce on a jingle ball in the kitchen.

There's been a rash of spam commenters on the unlocked posts in my IJ again. This is why I can't and won't remove the screened comment feature. Unfortunately, I can't disable the anonymous commenting so fellow Daring Bakers and Daring Cooks can still post. It's a Catch-22, I'm damned to spammers if I don't, and damned as far as the Daring Kitchen comments go if I do.

Did some yard work this morning- watered plants/gardens, chopped back butterfly bush and overgrown vinca vine- why did I plant that crap again? It's impossible to get rid of. Chopped down a few weed trees out back, chopped/pulled all the bramble vines and other vines off the fence near the outdoor unit. The front walk is clear again, you don't have to push past the butterfly bush to walk on it now.

Speaking of Daring Bakers- need to do the Sept Challenge sometime this week. ESPECIALLY this week, as It's due next Monday to be posted. Yes, I'm procrastinating.

Been playing Sims3 as I can. Sometimes it's so lagged it annoys the crap out of me. Sometime by the end of the year, I'll be able to upgrade my power supply and video card to run it better. I hope. Currently I'm on a building kick and am designing/building a French Chateau style house. Complete with hedge maze garden Screenshots later.

Need to call the parents sometime this week and let them know we won't be coming back up again this year. Yes, I'm procrastinating that too.

I'm good at procrastinating.


You know, speaking of planting things that we should have thought better of, honeysuckle. Back in MD the house we had was fenced and all along the back fence was a row of BEAUTIFUL honeysuckle that very nicely screened our yard from the neighbors. In the three years we lived there I think I only needed to trim it once because it hardly ever grew. Flash forward to our move to Ohio. Out here, honeysuckle is a FREAKIN' weed! You can't get rid of the sh#t! You can cut it back, trim it up, DIG UP THE FREAKIN' ROOTS and the sh#t still comes back!! Several of the houses around us had honeysuckle so bad that it was growing into some of their plumbing pipes. It's horrible.

BTW, have I mentioned yet how much I HATE yardwork and / or gardening? Either one. In that respect, I'm a city boy.
Yeah, it's a weed here as well. I don't mind it growing on the fence, but anywhere else, it can go.}:P
