wild green parrots, cookoos, white face monkeys, beautiful frogs with poisonous skins

just found this video...this is where i'll be staying most of the time.

i'm stealing some of these moves for our next dance party

DHL, people, DHL

And these, these are actual photos from Dale Hollow Lake.

Dear Sara'h',

i can only speak for myself, but i am glad that you are my friend, too. love ya'. :) also, these are actual photographs from Costa Rica. Can you believe you are going to Costa Rica for 3 freaking weeks?! i am very jealous. I want to go and hang out and splash around in that waterfall and dive into that sunset. I also wanna do the Tree Pose while becoming one with Nature. Or maybe do Warrior 1, holding my pot of Gold up to the sky on top of a mountain.

i'm jealous, can you tell?

but also, i'm proud of you for going. you are brave - and wonderful, NOT TO MENTION beautiful.

i am going to miss you,

erica *

hello, all. i'm sure that one or many of you have heard different reviews about the new X-files movie "i want to believe" -- and i assure you, all are valid and well thought out. let me be the first to say that. i don't judge people for what they like or dislike in movies. ((cough, cough))

but for all interested, on August 7 - David Duchovny will be 48. Meaning, then, of course, he was early 30's when he started the x-files. so weird. and awesome.

also, if you couldn't pick it up - i liked it for what it was: Mulder and Scully together at last <3 i feel like i can take a deep breath.

two thousand %$&#!!#$ eight.

so i have been thinking about the tops albums of 2008 thus far. i was going to post my list, but i thought that it would seem a bit repetitive. i mean most of our favs have been fairly similar, and mine would have probably been about the same. so i decided to make a list of some of the stand-out tracks this year. let me know what you think.
in no particular order.

1 air france    -  collapsing at your doorstep
2 girl talk   -   in step
3 health    -    crimewave
4 sigur ros    -    festival
5 fleet foxes    -    ragged wood/your protector (tie)
6 ratatat    -    shempi
7 bonnie 'prince' billy     -     i'll be glad
8 the tallest man on earth    -    the gardner
9 no age     -     eraser
10 frightened rabbits    -    good arms vs bad arms
11 wolf parade    -    the grey estates
12 ponytail    -    beg waves
13 the acorn    -    oh napoleon
14 m83    -    too late
15 animal collective    -    street flash
16 the notwist    -    boneless
17 man man     -     el azteca
18 neon neon    -    i told her on alderaan
19 the ruby suns    -    tane mahuta/remember (tie) 
20 damien jurado    -    trials
21 dan friel    -    ghost town pt. 1/horse heaven (tie)

so far so good, huh? these aren't necessarily representative of the best albums, just my favorite songs. eat it.

blueberry hill

tonight, as i avidly worked on paperwork while terrible visions of car nightmares danced through my head, my hubby bubby from the town of subby decided he'd make a pie. a blueberry pie that tasted like a dream come true.

he's so awesome.

i love how dumb's headlines are

for example...

"U.S. exports cigarettes, bras, and bull semen to Iran"

"Spike enters teen's nose, lodges in brain"

"Vatican "regrets" female bishops"

"You're the fattest ballerina"

"Obama, McCain battle for Latino lovers" (not really, it said Latino voters, but when I first read it I thought it said lovers...i wish)

why all felids are good people

these two guys in the video raised this lion (birth name is Christian) for a lot of years. then let him go in the wild, for a whole year without seeing him. after a year, they wanted to go back and see him...this is their reunion. also, in that year, Christian became the head lion of this lion family and took a wife too. like i said to greg just a little bit ago "i have so much more respect for you greg, you come from a long line of good people."
