(No title)

Two things:
(1) This is very true:

What Type of Social Entity are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

Category I – The Hub
You’re a ‘people person’.  Networking runs in your
blood.  Consequently, you can move through most
social circles with ease.

(2)The squirrels have had their revenge.  They were really ticking me off, because they were leaping up on my window ledge (which scared the poop out of me) then (as if that weren’t enough) jumping from there up to the feeders …the “squirrel-proof” feeders with the baffles and everything.  So I’d been squirt-gunning them.  It’s rather annoying because in some ways they seem quite smart… how they managed to open a 3′ tall galvanized metal garbage can is beyond me (I mean, they’re only like 8″ tall!  Where’s the leverage), yet in other ways (like failing to realize that if they climb on the feeder I’m going to water gun them) they seem rather dense.

So anyway, I’m working with my bedroom window slightly open (the better to water gun them with my dear) and I almost knock over the little glass votive I have on the window ledge.  At that point, I actually think to myself “Gee, Gina, you’re going to knock that over ’cause you’re soooo focused on this petty activity of squirrel squirting.”  And, yes, you can see where this is going.

After spending some quality-time with the vacuum, I am trying to seek a more “Zen-like” approach to the squirrels.

    by complete coincidence….

    …me, too.

    By the way — I just noticed that I have HORRIBLY forgotten to include you in my TypeList of links. That has now been corrected.
