    Those 2012 mascots..must have been a marketing team trying to mold children's imagination for the future.

    Anything with 2 eyes would have been better. Actually some litlte children will be freaked out. There was an article in local paper of employees who wear the stuffed mascot costumes here in our city (and not just 2010 Olympic mascots)..It takes a special person to do it often.

    Some kids do get freaked out.

    they look more like bottle openers than mascots to me. WHAT were they thinking?

    Hey! I see yer all still talkin'.

    Things have been hectic around here, waiting for word on Kit getting accepted into her clinicals this year or having to reapply next year. Took Ito'san to the vet this morning. He started liking me again tonight.

    Kit sold her car a few months back because she didn't really like it and we never drove it. (she got what she paid for it, so it was a good deal) Today, we took her to look at a cute little Chevy Tracker and she drove it home. It needs a bit of work, which we can do some of it ourselves.

    Otherwise, we're entering trauma season at work so things get busy this time of year. I'm on the evening shift these days so I get off work at 11:30pm. I don't ride bike to work anymore because I have to ride through some very secluded, dark, park areas alone. I just don't trust it. Too many cars sitting along the pulloffs at night. I will have to find some time somewhere to ride. I miss it.

    I'll be able to be on here more soon. The car situation will make it easier for us to negotiate our spare time instead of running places twice to drop off/pick up the other or taking the (OMFG, where is it, I'll be late) bus or my sloooooooow *** on a bike.

    Okay, off to bed for us. Kit has to work tomorrow and I have a car to detail.
