Um, yeah I am so not eating at TGIF”s anytime soon, especially when I saw this: “A diner at a restaurant in upstate New York says he got a little something extra with his broccoli — a severed snake head.”

Jenifer Rebecca Gitchell, it’s your 37th birthday and you can trust that there are tons of people thinking bout you and missing you tremendously. I miss you everyday and I know that I will for the rest of my life. You entered my world in 2001 and unfortunately left in 2006 and my life has not been the same. I have never met anyone like you and I know that I probably will never again…
You have brought much light, life, laughter and love to my life and to all of those that knew you. I can truthfully say that you have made our lives that much better and have left many footprints within our heart and I thank you for that.
I try very hard to live by your favorite mantra “Live, Laugh, Love” and sometimes it’s just so hard to do so…but I certainly do try. As you had around your cubie…
“Dance as though no one is watching you” “Sing as though no one can hear you”
Happy Birthday Gitchie…I love you and miss you very much…
I was cruising the internet a few weeks ago (heh, who wasn’t) and came across a cute invention…diaper cakes! Yes, I said it, diaper cake. Talk about a cute and unique idea. So, I thought, “hmmmm, maybe I could pull something like that together.” Maybe, just maybe, I have just enough craftiness inside me to wrangle something like that up. Of course, I also knew I could be wrong — waaaaaaaaaaay wrong.
I guess mine turned out okay for a first time caker, but I wish it would have turned out a wee bit better. Anyways, here’s my attempt:
Well, it’s something pretty simple and depending on how you want to decorate it, not very pricey. It’s definitely a little time consuming, of course nothing strenuous (which I love) and you can decorate it however you wish.
Without a doubt, I just love the “diaper cake” idea because it’s just something you can run with and have some fun. Hope she likes it! Yes, I’m crossing my fingers right now.
So, if you’ve visited my guy’s site today, you know that it has been snowing the last couple days and rumour has it that its gonna stick around through Christmas. Just great. I’m no snow lover, although, I do think it’s quite beautiful to look at…in a picture or a movie…falling somewhere else…and I don’t have to drive or walk in it…much less be in it. LOL. I am such a complainer, I know.
And believe me, we hardly ever get snow in the local Lacey/Olympia/Tumwater area, but when it happens — the shiznet happens. It actually got down to 10 degrees the other night, 10 degrees people!! Needless to say that it set the records for the lowest temp in for freaking ever! Um, we are the “rainy state” people, not the snowy state.
If you’re not used to getting snow, you’re not going to be used to driving in it and let me tell you, I’m not the most graceful creature in the world. I’m a faller people (stories for a different time) and I’m surprised that I’m still upright, mobile and have all working limbs; seriously, I am.
Hope the rest of you are staying warm!
Wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving and let you know that I am thankful for each and every one of you! May your day be filled with fun, food, laughter and love. And you can’t forget to allow a little bit of room for some menial drama, cuz it’s just not Thanksgiving without a little bit of drama…what? You know it’s true.
Anyways, enjoy the day, food and time with your loved ones, family and friends (be it furry or otherwise) and capture some memorable times!
So, earlier today I went online to check on the Commissioner of Public Lands election update and came across the headline “Olympia Police Officer shoots, kills man after car chase” within our local paper, The Olympian. Here’s the story:
LACEY, Wash. – One or more Olympia police officers were involved in a fatal shooting on College Street early this morning after police chased a man who was a suspect in a different shooting that occurred earlier in the evening, authorities said.
The chase that led to the shooting began in Olympia, in the area of the Shell Station on the east side where Pacific Avenue and Martin Way split, Mack said.
About 5:43 a.m., an Olympia police officer on patrol at that location saw a black Honda that resembled a vehicle that police said was seen after a shooting about 12:30 a.m. in the area of State Avenue and Wilson Street, Mack said. During the earlier shooting at State and Wilson, a man was shot in the leg, and the bullets were thought to have been fired from the black Honda, Mack said.
The injuries to the man who was shot in the leg were not life-threatening, according to an OPD news release.
The Olympia officer attempted to pull over the driver of the black Honda, but the driver fled toward Lacey, Mack said.
The chase ended on College Street, just past 26th Avenue, Mack said. Body damage to the black Honda and one Olympia police patrol vehicle suggest there was some kind of collision between the two vehicles, Mack said.
Mack said that at the time the shooting occurred, three Olympia police officers and two Lacey police officers were on the scene. Mack said no Lacey officers were involved in the shooting. One or more Olympia officers fired the shot or shots that killed the suspect, Mack said.
He said he did not have information on whether more than one Olympia officer is suspected of firing a shot or shots.
A woman who was a passenger in the black Honda was unhurt, Mack said.
Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock said about noon today that an autopsy is being performed on the deceased, and that he will have more details later in the afternoon.
Mack said at the county’s officer-involved-shooting critical-incident team headed up by the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office will investigate the shooting. He said cars were on the road early this morning when the shooting occurred and asked that anyone with information call the Lacey Police Department at 360-459-4333 or the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office at 360-786-5500.
Whoa! Yoshi and I were off in dreamland at the time this was taking place, which is kinda a blessing and then again…not so much. We live off of 25th people and all of this took place on 26th! CRIPES!!
