Thanks so much Mary!
Now everyone please go and check out her stuff!

has been brought back! (No slur against any of you other happy pixeleers! I'd love to collect more of these but so far, no one has sent me any! I also collect avatars of cute, [preferably] long-haired guys! So send me those too!
Wassup Baby Girl as they say here!!!! Well some people do!
Have been having a great time - not doing much but taking a vacation from the vacation which is my life! Still have to cook, clean and put the kid to bed!
Actually doing some of someone else's work (my sis's) isn't nearly as tormenting as doing my own!
The computer set up is very uncomfortable here so I have been able to break its hold on me considerably which makes me homesick for my own sweet system.
Trying not to think of homesickness because when I get back to Vancouver (late April 13th for those I've left in confusion) it will be wintry again (no doubt) for another 2 - 3 months.
Here the weather has been variably warmish but we've had two gloriously sunny days so far (I guess that doesn't sound too great since March 23 but more than I'm used to!) and yesterday it was HOT enough to lie out and get in the pool! Yum!
Last week Thursday and Saturday, sis and I went out dancing to this cool club called Memphis and danced a fair bit! The bands were great and it was quite the thrill to be told in person that you are beautiful and have nice lips and hair etc!
!!!! I'm not lying! Looks like I might even have a date! Ha! Sure@#$**^%!!!! Why are guys so unreliable - say one thing and do another?Response from guys and girls on that question [or vice versa] would be most amusing!!!!!!!!
We've cooked some great meals and gone out to some great restaurants. We're going clubbing again Tuesday - a fun excuse to put on a dress for the first time in around 10 years!
and be oggled - not googled for a change!
As for Galveston, we've just received too many unpleasant (no offence to Galvestonians) comments about the place and its unreliable wind and weather and so since Corpus Christi and South Padre Island are too far to drive to and too expensive for us to fly to, we're looking at Austin now. Just two days left to cancel the Galveston (always liked that dumb Glen Campell song though I disliked him and the rest of his silly country muzac!) reservations and find some place cool and reasonable to stay in Austin - preferably with a pool and kitchenette. So please let me know so I don't have to do another ton of net research! My sis really needs a holiday from her non-holiday life too!
We'll be leaving here for there on Friday the 7th and be back on Sunday the 9th. Then I'm here again until Thursday April 13th and back in Vancouver on that day!
Terrible as it sounds, I am so homesick I can hardly stand it! I have to keep putting it out of my mind (which isn't so hard with all the drugs I'm on
) and I desperately miss my kitties and writing to everyone here all the time! The kitties especially because I get my physical (as opposed to virtual) hugs from them!
Anyway, I can't very well apologize but I'm sure y'all understand why I haven't been answering messages, comments, notes, journals and deviations for the most part. Their computer thing is very poor ergonomically (though it's totally speedy) as I mentioned above and I can hardly sit here this long without being in pain! ARG!!! Migraines have only been slightly reduced since I've been here so I don't want to ruin my chances again!
But once again, I know that there's a reason for this - I'm not supposed to be on this machine for too long! The sun and pool beckon even though it's only 9:50am!
And about that camera! I still haven't rushed out (haven't rushed anywhere lately except yesterday when my sis realized she missed the (daylight savings) time change and she was late getting ready to go to my nephew's adjudicated sonatina recital!) and bought one. I hope that I'll have one before we go to Austin though....I just don't seem to feel like shopping though I did buy one of those flouncey skirts in black (or course) and some new underwear!!!! (At Costco for the a ridiculously low price) Also black! And now you know the truth about ElZed!!!
Wish me luck in my last 10 days here in Dallas! I may even have a chance to write again if anything exciting happens!
Take care, y'all!
PS Just in case you're still reading!...I watched the movie The Five People You Meet in Heaven as my 9 year old nephew (then 7 or 8 ) was an extra in the movie. You can barely see him in one of the scenes where Eddie as a child is playing baseball in the street. He's one of the very blond kids that you DON'T get a good look at!
, it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time with the only problem being that I cried my entire butt off for the entire movie! ARG!!! I cried so much that I could hardly open my eyes the next day and I thought the swelling would never go down. That was Friday and today, Monday they are almost back to "normal: except for the larger than usual suitcases under my eyes!
Watch it if you like sentimental, philosophical movies! I think even some guys would like it though there's no sex or violence to speak of!
PPS Just watched the movie that my nicest niece Claire was an extra in. Largely filmed in Vancouver, it was pretty cool to see though it made me very homesick! I only cried at the end when Ice Cube and the "lady" get together!
Please wait for my friends' icons to load and then look at their galleries too!
