Among the things I found in the brother & sister in laws stash of stuff from my Grandma's house were some old framed photos from Egypt.  Since I plan to redecorate our bedroom and change the art in there with photography, I snagged them!  I went to the local post office to send them home, along with some snapshots which were my Moms.  So I was out and about that morning.

Having caught up with 2 LJ Communities and a few personal journals of my f-list (if I haven't yet caught up with yours, I will be soon) I can now spam (or bore) you all with another post about my trip.

I  promised you people, this post is nothing BUT people!!! So, feel free to ignore the people.

Warning: This is long and boring!!!

Rehearsal Dinner Day... )

Having slept comfortably in the guest room of my brother and sister-in-laws house (the room, which in the previous post was decorated with bows, lots of bows), I went to the kitchen to get a beverage to help wake up.  I had plans for the morning but wanted to see what was on the schedule for the day.  It was fairly obvious there were many things yet to do, if the post-it notes were any indication.

The Next Day... )

First things first...I apologize for not being up to date on my flist journals.  Between my trip, the fact that my deskpic community was spotlighted and the Star Trek community being in overdrive since the movie came out, my flist's individual posts have been somewhat overwhelmed.  I vow to get caught up in the next few days, as soon as Mr. Mav starts his work week tomorrow afternoon.

Now on to the trip photos.

Getting there... )

First things first, we have been in a bit of a panic around here.  Our oldest cat, Jerry the one eyed wonder has recently developed an odd lump in his empty eye socket.  Grossness aside, the hubby and I were very, very worried this would be the time we would have to have him put down.  He's been in ill health most of his life.  Bad ears, bad eye, diabetic, and at the age of 15, this is all starting to tell on the poor fellow.  Anyway, we took him to the vet yesterday, thoroughly convinced he wouldn't be coming home with us.  Needless to say, Mr. Mav and I were very tense.  So, we drop him off and go to complete our errands and the vet will do an exam while we're gone.  Anyhoo, we get back to the vet, it's just an infection, he'll be fine.  So, we take our little kitty home and he is petted within an inch of his life.  He was really loving all the attention he was getting.  Yay!!!!

So, last night my 'super power' was once again activated.  I could not get to sleep last night, I was tired, I'd had a busy (for me) day and there was nothing bothering or worrying me, I'd had a big worry eased at the vet's office.  So, why couldn't I sleep?  This has happened a few times since we moved to the west coast.  On a handful of occasions, I've just not been able to sleep, and there was no obvious cause.  I can usually tell what's keeping me from sleeping.  Well, on each and every of these occasions, the next day I've read in newspapers/online that an earthquake, (always small ones) had occurred within the last 24 hours.  I've never in my life been consciously aware of an earthquake *knocks every bit of wood in the vicinity* and I don't ever want to be.  So, that's my very own 'super power' to be able to sense small earthquakes on a subconscious level.  Geez, I'm boring, aren't I?

This is something I do often and usually with no fanfare.  I just felt like introducing my new default.  It is the incomparable Stevie Ray Vaughan, guitar icon and great Texan.

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons that I want to hear about.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee...

[ profile] trishtrash  picked these five icons for me.

To continue the 'story' of my ventriloquist dummy fears which I wrote about here, I came across something in my recently rediscovered school albums.

Read more...or not. )
I have caught up with as many comments from the past as I can.  There are still about 75 unanswered ones in my inbox.  I'll go through them and if there is something deeply profound about the subject, I'll reply.  If not, it will just fade away, sorry.

So, I've been tagged by the lovely [ profile] edith_jones  with this answer meme thing.  So, I'm going to do it.  Like [ profile] cat63 , I'm not going to tag people, but if you want do it, I'd be happy to learn more about you all.

Off topic, I'm leaving on Wednesday for another of those lovely mini holiday/photo safari trips, the hubs has a seminar/conference or something and I'm going to join him there and turn it into a photo safari.  This time we're going to Seattle and, as is my custom, I'll be spending the days taking photos.  In the evenings we'll be visiting his family.  I've already decided to pilfer the father in law's photography stuff, and luckily, he's been putting stuff aside for me!!!!  Look forward to some urban pictures for once.  I'm also planning a trip to a zoo (the same one at which the niece was married last summer) and plan on taking a ton of animal photos there!!!!

Stolen from jaelle_n_gilla :USING ONLY ONE WORD! It's not as easy as you might think! Copy and paste (into notes) and change the answers to suit you and pass it on. It's really hard to only use one word answers. No tagging.

As most of you know, I've been waiting for months for the Sonic Drive In to open in our area.  Most importantly to get my favorite lime slush.  Well, follow the cut for the tale, pictures included.

The day has finally come!!!  I'm going to drop Fergus off at doggie daycare (conveniently located close to the Sonic) go IMMEDIATELY to said Sonic and order the largest (Route 44) size lime slush available.  And I may pick up another one on the way home before picking Fergus up from day care!!!!!

Just as a reminder as to why I'm so freakin' happy, here's my original post.
