I got her those awesome sunglasses!Today was my little sister's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's. I am protesting another birthday party at this place, only because of how expensive it is! She was uncomfortable around the big Cheese, and quickly made the decision to stand behind my mom when her cake was brought out.

I actually had so much fun watching it, it flew right by. A thing or two bugged me about it. Two things, to be exact - two huge shiny red things that flapped around the screen. Too bad there was no clause prohibiting lip injections in Megan Fox's contract. It was bad when I had trouble understanding her lines. Unless rockin a trout pout is what's hip right now...I can never keep up.
To superhotties everywhere, let it be!
Today's photo is of the lucky dragonfly that made it away with his or her life. There were a couple elementary school kids hovering over as the dragonfly tried ot be still. I asked them if I could get a picture of it (before it escaped) and then it took flight. Beautiful!

Finishing up My Wicked, Wicked Ways, the autobiography of Errol Flynn. I'd buy a copy of this book for every bookworm I know if I could afford to. What a great read!

I took photos with a panoramic in mind, but after processing they turned out not so nice - there they are anyway. :)
Those colors are unreal!

No one was up before 9am. My mom must have been tired - she couldn't even remember the last time she slept in past 7am. Good for her!
When I got up I was duped into babysitting the six children for a few hours while my mom, aunts and grandma when to help a family member move out of her apartment. That was an interesting experience for me. It wasn't too bad for they were all preoccupied with the Wii and their various handheld video gaming systems. Spoiled rotten, they are. Found out that my six year-old brother is playing the Mario game that I played when I was in middle school, so I spent the last hour trying to trick him into putting the Nintendo DS down long enough for me to grab it and run. lol, rotten.
Left Portland around 5pm, stopped for dinner, and made it home at 9pm.
I still have another hour of driving before I am home in beautiful Bellingham.

Happy 69th Birthday, Grandma!
Slow moving morning. Woke up to some yummy smells coming from downstairs. My mom, aunts and grandma stayed up until 3am cooking and catching up, and five hours later they were awake and cooking/catching up again.
Went to this huge park for my grandma's birthday party/a distant cousin's graduation party. I have never seen so many Palauan families all gathered in one place. There must have been two hundred people there! Played and ran around with the children and got lots of great photos. Ate some amazing Palauan cuisine.
I crashed hard around 11pm. What an awesome day!

Today PETA made an online statement against the American Veterinarian Medical Association having a Pike Place Fish Market "Flying Fish Presentation" at their upcoming convention next month.
Click here for the story. For a good laugh, click here to read the blog post at PETA's website.
No on to something lighter...
For dinner, Morgan found a salmon recipe that included bourbon. I did the cooking and it turned out amazing. Morgan is not much for expressing himself and usually chooses the terms "fine" or "it's OK" to describe meals. This meal was "good." I'm happy with that.
Watched D.W. Griffith's movie Intolerance (1916). It is such a beautiful movie, but three hours was too long!

Met Morgan after work to help him with laundry. We were both ravenous by the time we got home so I got salmon and a caesar salad prepared in twenty minutes. Watched Oldboy (2003), which is one of the greatest F'd up movies of all time. If you crave a few good laughs followed by a sickening, hollow feeling in your chest, watch Oldboy - 15 years of imprisonment, five days of vengeance. I followed this up with some light humor - a few episodes of The Critic. :D I have a strong emotional resilience.
