Thoughts, out loud, that probably should of been left inside my head....

Happy Halloween

I almost didn't get this post off in time. I can't believe I didn't have this up earlier. Halloween is here!! One of my most favorite holidays (although I didn't dress up or receive trick or treaters).

I want to plug my brothers site for Halloween though. He and Ashley are going to be a HUGE CAMERA and they even set up a site. Frickin' hilarious!

Netflix: User Error

I wish that all online purchases were standardized. Most online stores require you to CONFIRM your purchase, at minimum, five times (or so it seems), but no... not Netflix. I just wanted to find out how much shipping and handling was going to be for a movie. I didn't want to purchase it! I thought there would be a confirmation page! So I click on proceed (without entering cc/shipping/billing info) and BAM! it says "Thank you for your purchase". Excuse me what? What about "Click here to confirm"....argh!!! Good thing I like the movie (Underworld: Evolution) and what Jeff doesn't know, won't hurt him, right?... unless of course he's decided to read my blog and in that case I'm screwed :) Love you, Jeffrey!

Top Ten

Top ten reasons why you might want to rethink installing a cat door at your house.

(Imagine the song "Little Shop of Horrors" quietly playing in the background)

10. Crickets (abound, including scattered cricket legs throughout the house)
9. Pond plants (and always the slimiest)
8. Worm snakes (thankfully non posineous and barely longer than 3 inches)
7. Lizards (you'd think they would be quicker than the cat, don't you?)
6. A live bird (that's right. Scroll down to #4)
5. A dead field rabbit (This was pretty gory. But unfortunately, not the worst. See #3, #2)
4. Another live bird (this time upstairs and with a ceiling fan. Luckily things didn't go that far)
3. A rabbits head (at first mistaken for a fake fur toy, but eventually discovered as it's true self)
2. The rabbits body (After the disposal of the head, ten minutes later, the body made it into the house)
1. And the #1 reason you should seriously rethink installing a cat door in your house. You seriously start to question the "domesticity" of your precious feline by staying awake late at night and wondering if at some point they might have a "hankering" for human. (cue Twilight Zone music)

Going to San Francisco

So, Jeff and I are headed to SanFran in T-minus 10 days and counting. We are headed out on Friday the 13th (cue creepy music) and we are headed back the following Tuesday. Thanks to the frequent flyer miles of the inlaws, the free digs from the bro and Ashley and a generous anniversary gift by the parents we are making our way out to CA! I can't wait! Aside from all the glorious things to see out there, the fact that their weather is a notably 34 degrees cooler than San Antonio would be reason alone to traverse over 1700 miles.
