Why I love her...

I love this. Leah and Peter, this is basically for you two. But anyone else who loves this need not be shy.

Life in la-la land...

Okay, I owe everyone an apology. My friend from LA emailed and pointed out I made a bit of a boo-boo. You believed I was actually going to the South of France. I'm not. With some friends and some family (!) it's code for "I'm about to start a painting!" I thought I typed in the punch line, but got so involved with music, I guess I forgot. And then I didn't check in for a few days. So when the email arrived I looked and yup, I screwed up. But thanks for all the comments, cuz they're terrific!!! When I actually do go on vacation, trust me, you'll be the first to know and the news won't be delivered a few days before the event, but a few months! Why? Because I don't have time to vacation and when I do I want everyone to know about it!!! Sorry about that. Really. I would never intentionally mislead you.
It's been an interesting day. Hell it's been an interesting week and it's only Tuesday. Remember the two female cyclist who said I was cool as they passed me in my pink cap and bag? Well I had a similar experience a few days ago with some guys! Discovery Park is a wonderful place for racers to train because the bike trail goes on for a gazillion miles. Huge teams of them ride by every morning. I had friends in college who raced and was always fascinated by how beautiful they looked in their riding gear, so have a very soft heart for men or women in that uniform. I was trying to feed Wee-Piggy when a racing team came through, so we were waiting to cross the bike path. I waved, said hi, they all waved, said hi, it was wonderful, and then two slowed down. You know a professional cyclists, he/she can make a bike appear as if it's floating on water. And that's what they did while they said "Hey!" I said "Hey!" One said "You feed ferals?" I said "Yup." The other said "That's so cool." And the other said "Rock on beautiful, and THANKS!" I said "THANKS!!!!!" And off they went. I couldn't get the smile off my face for hours. They were two young, gorgeous guys, and they stopped for me and Wee-Piggy just to say thanks. I couldn't believe it.

And then I was gifted with the two guys on bikes who drove past us today. One said something, but I didn't quite get it at first, then my brain did a bit of caculation and came up with "Stop feeding the cats, asshole." They were already past us, but I yelled at the top of my lungs "F*#K Y)& A$$&+(E. I didn't think he heard me, but then he turned and gave me the finger. Perfection. He'll never forget me. And trust me, I won't forget him. Next time I'll walk in front of them. It'll be like a Monty Python skit: two bikes and two guys flyin' everywhere and me and Wee-Piggy just fine and dandy! Don't worry, I'll keep you informed!
It was the first time anyone has been cruel at the park about the cats. I asked myself why? What creates that sort of person? Nature or nurture? I've given it a great deal of thought and honestly, I just don't know. I'm just grateful for all the really wonderful people who smile, wave, stop, talk, ask, and hug. They make a difference in my life. Thank you.

This is for Peter...

Amy Winehouse. No honey, I won't keep you danglin'! I know you realize this is about losing her husband to heroine. I love this video with all my heart because it's beautiful in the face of great pain. And yes, like you and Leah, I hope she finds her way because that is one amazing voice. Rob said "Wouldn't it be a waste if that just went away?" And yes. It would.

XO Suze~

Before I left for the park to feed the ferals this morning I put a new roll of toilet tissue on that whatchamacallit. I arrived home to find the whatchamacallit empty and all the toilet tissue in a lovely pile on the floor. Hummmmmmmmm. Apparently Ohno was busy in the "office" organizing his paper work while mommy was at the park. How do I know? Well, it was really quite simple. He still had toilet tissue in his claws.
Love to all,
Suze XO
P.S. And just so you know, this is how overworked and tired I am. I logged onto Blogger and when it asked for my password I typed in "Password," then spent the next few minutes trying to figure out what the hell was wrong with Blogger. Swear to God.

The Holy Grail

Those of you who Google know that the goal is to type in one word and get only one link. Impossible. We all know it's impossible. Until today. I was trying to deal with our kitty Mickey at the same time I was typing and made a big boo-boo, but the result was fabulous!!! I typed in "otrasity" and guess what? Yup, got one link!!! ME, LITTLE OLE ME!!! I WON!!!
