Contrary to Popular Belief...

I have not fallen off the planet. I haven't been in a horrible accident and lost all my limbs. I haven't been abducted by aliens. I haven't been hacked to pieces by Slasher Norm. I did, however, fall down the stairs taking out the recycling and twist my foot. Yes, that purple and yellow swollen thingie is my foot. Or what's left of it. And no, my toes aren't dirty, they are bruised. There is a difference.
However, that isn't why I haven't been blogging or tweeting or picture taking. The reason for that is much more believable. See, I've been on this undiscovered, uninhabited island. You have probably never heard of it. It's called Analog Isle. I went out on this 3 hour boat trip with an old professor of mine known as Doc, a silly little country girl named Ali, a glamorous star named Gretchen, a goofy old couple named Otie and BlueViolet. My sea-worthy captain was none other than CBT, and his helper was Coffeypot. Well the captain and his mate must have been telling silly jokes or something because we got way off course. Next thing I knew we were being tossed all around in a hurricane. We finally came ashore on this island. It took us 26 days to get off the island. Really. That's why my last post was April 1st. I couldn't take any pictures of the beautiful sights because my camera battery died. And of course I couldn't tweet.

Now that I'm finally home I hope to get reacquainted with all of you. Thanks for sticking around. One of the best parts? I actually gained a follower! You all totally rock. I also got a couple more tweeps following me too, so I'll try to say something witty and intelligent.

Happy Hour Friday

Hi and welcome to Happy Hour Friday. I know, I know, you don't have to tell me... I am a big slacker. It's been an entire week since I've posted. In fact, I'm surprised to see that I've only lost one follower considering the fact that I not only haven't posted, I also haven't read nor commented on any blogs this week.

In my defense, it's been a hectic week. If you read my last post, you know that I took my two chickadees to chicago for a few days. We had a fabulous time.
we saw the city
we saw some wildlife at Shedd Aquarium
we saw some dead stuff at the Field Museum
we walked -- a lot
we looked at feet
we marveled at 'the bean'
we made a new friend irl (Tori)
we did some touristy stuff - the billy goat tavern
we hung out with my cousin joey
(but now that he's an adult he prefers Joe -- too bad, he's still joey to me)
and we shopped a little lot.
can you believe I forgot to take a pic of the Magnificent Mile sign? Grr.

All in all, the girls and I (plus joey and his girlfriend meaghan) had a great weekend. I can't wait to go back and see tori again -- whether she wants me to or not. Chicago is just a very cool place to be.

Anyway, I was back for a day and then hopped a plane to Reno to see my mom
and her kitty, cj
So yes, I have been a very bad blogger buddy. hopefully you can forgive me. I tell ya what, why don't you belly on up to the bar and I'll buy the first round of drinks... happy friday.
