    • Happy Birthday to me!

      11 years ago

      DodgeWinton

      Yay! Happy Birthday to Me! It was my birthday today (or yesterday really, I do tend to stay up kinda late). I lazed around, played on the computer, then went to my parents house for a yummy birthday dinner! A few other family members came as well, which was really nice - sometimes it's kinda cool that we're all still in the same general city area. We had chicken cordon bleu, one of my favorites that my mom makes, and then brownies for dessert! YUM!

      They gave me some cash to use toward the purchase of a new digital camera, so I might be able to realize that dream after all! The hard part will be figuring out WHICH camera to get. I was researching them quite vigorously a couple of months ago, and my head starting swimming with megapixels, zooms, and iso's. Blarg!

      Anyway, speaking of digital cameras, I thought I'd share a neat image that I managed to capture the other day right after a horrendous rain/hail storm. A double rainbow! (and the house across the street - actually it's currently on the market if anyone is interested smiley8.gif )

      I even got a day off from work - woo hoo!!
      Happy Weekend to everyone!

    • Journal?

      11 years ago

      Wow, it seems it's been awhile since I've journaled... been caught up in other stuff I guess... Thought I'd share a pic I took of a rainbow in town. I was in a parking lot, and was trying to catch the rainbow with my cell phone, but it looks as though I was taking a pic of the car - kinda funny. Completely random car, just happened to center itself in the photo.

      And also, a recent attempt at catching a sunset (neighbor's house), also with cellphone:
      0505071951.jpg

      It's amazing how much better the pictures are from my new cell compared to my old one! For comparison, an embarassing pic of my car stuck in the snow - yes, I'm a dork. Actually I was driving a little faster than I should have been on a slick road, lost traction, and slid right into a ditch that was just deep/narrow enough to prevent me from getting out on my own.

      Okay, guess I'm going a little nuts with the pics... Hope you all are having a good weekend! It's Fiestas here in Santa Fe, and many people went to the burning of Zozobra on Thursday night. I haven't been in years, it's just so crowded! Here's some info about Zozobra (and yes, I believe that he preceded the "burning man") www.zozobra.com
      This link has a great pic of Zozobra burning (might be a tad scary for young children)

      Couldn't resist sharing... This one popped up on screen and made me laugh!! :-)
      from icanhascheezburger.com of course.

      at least he has a nice soft bed to fall onto! Also I think maybe I would have put "I has letted go"...

      Many of you have probably already seen this, but it's really kinda funny!
      Put Your Ass in the Air

      How totally bizarre... Found the link to it on the webcomic A Girl and Her Fed - cute comic...

      Nothing new exciting on my end, just plain ol' work, etc. Found a very small bunny in the driveway a few days ago - maybe he's the one that has been ferreting away my gravel! :-)

      Watched Finding Nemo yesterday - it was pretty cute - I loved all the gulls saying "Mine? Mine?"

      What an awesome Hippo, I especially love the part at the end. My dad just forwarded this to me, and I just thought it was so cool, that I had to share it! Have a good weekend all!

    • Arches?

      12 years ago

      DodgeWinton

      Chiman's video journal reminded me of a stop at Arches National Park near Moab about 10 years ago - eep, was it really that long ago? So I went searching around and found a picture that I thought I might have. Thought I'd share it just for fun. The park is a really neat place, with beautiful rock and stone formations!

      This was after driving many hours on the way back from Seattle!

      Yikes!! I've been having the hardest time getting caught up reading everyone's journals!! Maybe my watchlist is too big... Nah!

      I finally downloaded some pics off my cell phone and camera, and thought I'd share a couple, just for fun! smiley0.gif

      Here's a shot that I got of the tornado we had here in June - I don't remember us EVER having a tornado here, so it was a little freaky to see it. Oh, and yes, most everyone has flat roofs here! Luckily there wasn't a patient in the room at the time! :-)
      0609071533.jpg

      A good friend of mine took this photo and sent it to my phone... She ran out to close her car windows and couldn't find her normal umbrella. So, she saw one in the corner that a friend had given her a few years back... could barely get out the door with it. She thought it was hilarious that it was so huge, so she took a pic of it for me... I thought it turned out kinda artistic!
      042807sarUmb.jpg

      We went to my relative's for the 4th, kind of an annual thing! I never know how to refer to her. She's my dad's cousin, but much older than him. So, in reality, she's my cousin, but she's, like, 85, so it just seems kinda weird calling her that, but aunt isn't correct either... Friend of mine today suggested "great cousin"... I like it. Anyway, she's always had pure bred boxers. She got this one a couple years back, and he's a hoot! He's totally freaked out by people, especially men, but he's getting better. His name is "George Foreman!" Which is funny on it's own, but also because her brother's name is George!

      Take care everyone! (for some reason, I want to say "peace out"... strange....)

    • Pretty Cacti Flowers

      I still think it's cool that something that is generally avoided due to its pain causing abilities can have such a beautiful flower... Took this shot a few days ago, it was a bit cloudy, and that's my neighbor's house...

      DSCN1634sml.jpg

      Last night we all went up on the roof to see if we could see the fireworks from town... they were barely above the horizon, so couldn't really see them... could see the ones from Rio Rancho a bit too, oddly enough... Then today we had quite the downpour! Luckily it doesn't sound like we had any fireworks-started fires nearby! I was quite worried since we're so dry here...

      Well, I finally sat down and watched Ep 100 last night... It was a good episode, it just didn't seem much like a finale... Then someone mentioned that the one they saw was totally different... So later tonight, I'll have to check all the links and make sure that I see ALL of them!

      Also - thought I'd put up another pic, just for fun... although you can probably guess, this is from Prom... Me and my friend Sarah... My grandma was over that night, and we all met at my house before going to dinner, etc. She met my friend's date, and "helped" us take our photos, and to this day, every once in a while she'll ask me about him - she just thought he was "so handsome". Totally cute! (oh, can ya tell which one is me?) smiley0.gif

    • Weird Reflective Journal…

      12 years ago

      DodgeWinton

      Sometimes it can be interesting to look back on your life a bit and look at it all toghether… I was talking to someone earlier tonight about a job I used to have… what an amalgamtion of job types I've had!! Hmm… let’s see…

      When I was in high school, I worked one summer at a retirement community, in the front office.

      In college, I kinda worked for the school itself, as an Editor for the Literary Magazine there. I did that for three years… It was pretty cool, and earned me a wee bit of money during the school year. During my first summer I worked at a hotel in Santa Fe, which is now known as a “spa & resortâ€Â, then the following summers and a couple of winter breaks I worked at a music (etc!) store called Hastings. By the time I started working there, they had these newfangled type items called CD’s! (hee hee)

      After college I got my first “career-type†job at a local magazine. I always had fun when people would call in to subsribe and I’d realize that I was in possession of some movie star’s credit card information.. Hmmm.. what should this actor buy me today â€" a car? (Of course I would never do such a thing â€" to easy to track me down)  smiley1.gif

      Then I worked for many years at a research center/museum. That was quite fascinating too, met a couple of famous people there too!

      Then I had a short term position working at a local Pueblo for a government funded after-school program. That was kinda neat too, I was an assistant administrator (still not too sure exactly what that was supposed to mean), but it was cool to see the kids enjoying after-school and summer programs that kept them busy and interested in their own culture, as well as other cultures too!

      Now I’ve been at the hospital over a year, and it’s amazing all the people that you run into… I’ve found myself working with nurses that I went to high school with, or that my mom (yep, my mom!) went to high school with… I don’t think she liked it too much when I brought in my mom’s yearbook. The funny thing though, is that she pretty much looks the same now as she did in her picture…

      I guess that I’m expecting to look back and see some sort of cohesiveness to my job types, but it’s more like I’m bouncing between extremes! Kinda cool though, and neat to realize all the cool and different people I’ve met along the way!

      I wonder if sometimes they like the coolness.

      I hadn't thought of that! I did read once that was why they'll often drink from the toilet. Supposedly the water is cooler. I always wondered how a person would know that unless they had drank from one....

      Okay, so what the heck is an ISP cloud?

      Sorry for my GEEKYness....ISP stands for Internet Service Provider. The "cloud" reference is just a generic term used to describe nebulous space...as in the "internet" or any other complicated machinenetwork.

      Lovely diagram by the way, slightly less frightening than your previous pic! smile.png

      ooohhh....you gave me a thought...perhaps I'll combine both and make a really SCARY picture. smiley0.gif
