Update Time


Hello My Minions!

Things are still crazy around here, so I haven’t had time for my little blog!

My father is still in rehab, but, is starting to make some improvement.

However, the rehab people think that it will be another month before he will be ready to come home. Ack.

Between my sister and myself, we’ve been visiting him almost every single day, and it’s really starting to wear us out, but, what can you do?

Hopefully, things will be back to normal by mid-summer!

In other news, work has been absolutely crazy, and now they have started a cost cutting initiative to review the company’s management structure to see where they can re-organize and “cut the fat” managerially speaking.

Supposedly, we are top-heavy with AVPs and VPs, but I am still very concerned for my “lower management” position. Say a prayer for me, please?

In more interesting “Tiamat” news (and this is what you’ve all been waiting for isn’t it?!!), Tiamat has seen all the lavish attention that my family has been pouring on our father, so now she’s “having trouble walking” because she has arthritis in her knee! What a coincidence!

So Husbandji has been having to stop by her place almost every night to help her with things.

But, this past weekend, when the family had a Memorial Day picnic, she apparently made a miraculous recovery!

We had gone to pick Tiamat up for the picnic since his other brothers are useless, and I was sitting in the car waiting for Husbandji to collect her from her apartment.

I was half expecting her to come limping out of the building, clutching to Husbandji for support, all the while moaning and whining.

Instead, she waddles out under her own power, holding a cane as though she were about to launch into a dance number, ala Fred Astaire!

So, apparently she’s even too stupid to properly fake a limp!

The picnic was uneventful, except to mention that when it came time for dessert, everyone was asked what they would like, as the hostess was serving it up herself.

When it was Tiamat’s turn (and she was not the last one to be asked) she said that she wanted a piece of cake TO TAKE HOME(!) and she wanted some pie to eat there!


What a cow! Why not wait to ask for a piece of cake to take home AFTER everyone else has been served, just to make sure that there will even BE any cake left over?!!!

But, of course, that would never occur to her!

She has been known to ask for “seconds” of something while some people are still waiting to be served for the first time!


Of course, the best part about that was that she forgot to take her cake home when we left, and she didn’t remember it until we were almost home!

Poor Tiamat!!! (Ack!)

Well, that’s all the news for now, kids. Talk to you all soon!!


The Drought is OVER!!!

BBC America will FINALLY be showing the Doctor Who 2008 Christmas special on Saturday, June 27th!!!!

What’s your current obsession? 

Too many to count right now…

What keeps you going when days are hard?

What are you wearing today?
I’ve taken a personal day in order to do some work around the Ashram. Lawn mowing is top of the list, followed by numerous chores and then random lazing on the couch, so I’m in sweats right now.

Why is today special? 
Because it’s FRIDAY!!!

What would you like to learn to do?
I’d love to learn Origami. I’ve got a book and the special paper. Now I just need to find the time to sit down and try it!

What’s for dinner today?
Not sure just yet. Probably a pasta dish.

What’s the last thing you bought?
I just found the cutest little statue of Lord Ganesh! It will have a place of honor on my desk at work.

What’s your favorite weather?
Cool, rainy days in Autumn.

What’s your most challenging goal right now?
To prepare to lead a project that I’ve had no training for! Ack.

What do you think about the person who tagged you? 
I actually wasn’t tagged, but the person whose blog I “borrowed” this from is faaaaaaaabulous!

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be? 
Somewhere fabulous in Japan!

What is your favorite vacation spot? 
I enjoy Cape Cod, off season of course…

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
A credit card with no limits and no monthly payments would be handy.

What would you like to get rid of? 
My mother-in-law.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? 
A shopping trip in Tokyo would be fabu!

What’s your favorite thing about the city you live in? 
My short commute to work (three miles).

If you had $150 now what would you spend it on? 
Someone to come mow my lawn!

If and when you buy a magazine at the airport, what do you buy?
I probably wouldn’t as I usually bring my own reading material. Probably BARK if I could find it.

Describe your personal style. 

Whose art show would you want tickets to? 
Sadao Hasegawa, (a sample of whose is shown above) but, as he’s dead that will probably never happen!

What are three live shows that you have seen? 

Nothing recently.  In the last few years I’ve seen a godawful road version of Evita. A fabulous road version of Phantom, and a so-so road version of Grease. Hey! This is the sticks out here, people! 🙂

Hito Shizuku

The group is called Zone. The song is faaaabulous! Enjoy!!
