how it's going

Today we had a wood floor installed in our bedroom. I have been looking forward to this not just because I love wood, but because I have terrible indoor allergies. The allergist said wood floors will make a difference. I suppose our bedroom carpet contained dust mites from the previous owners plus their wiener dog and their cat, plus us and our fluffy dog who sheds endlessly. The vacuum cleaner can't get it all out.

Well, they installed the wrong floor. We were puzzled for some time before checking the name on the box. It turns out there are two kinds of Manchurian Maple, the modern-looking one we wanted, and the country-looking one we got.

They are going to come back and re-do it. No problem, no argument, their mistake. So we will continue sleeping in the living room for a while longer. Not a big deal.

The biggest waste of money was the movie I rented last night, The Benchwarmers! I should have been properly forewarned when it boasted on the back cover that it's by the same guy who directed a bunch of doofus Adam Sandler movies. It was so bad we could not finish watching it. It just got dumber and dumber the more it went on. (This is just about as opinionated as I'll get on my blog. Sorry if I've offended some Adam Sandler fans. It's just not my cup of tea).

some rat doodles

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Here's some rat doodles. These are for Barbara.

I don't think I've ever even touched a rat, but I hear they make nice pets. Maybe I will make some t-shirts and things for rat lovers over at my cafepress shop.

I might open another shop, because my current shop is a dog theme... I'm planning on a new store called "Jenn's Doodle World."

a medical fact

Research shows that if you start eating ice cream right out of the pint it comes in, you won't be able to stop, and then you will feel sick to your stomach.

(But why get a bowl when you know you will go back for more anyway?)

weird thing of the day

This morning I discovered this thing growing in my lawn. It kind of looks like a brain, or something from outer space. It turned out to be a giant mushroom, but at first I was I was scared to poke it, fearing some spiders or flying insects would come out of it and attack me.

My shoe is there for size comparison (size 8).

Thank you Saur, for showing me It completely solved my uploading problem.

something new is coming soon

I have a new post, but for some reason I cannot get my photos to upload. Hopefully I will get it to work sometime today!

doodle of the day

This is a pure doodle. I didn't know what I was going to draw when I started it, and I still don't know exactly what's going on here now that I've finished it.

self portrait

By order of Carly Fries I am posting a self portrait of myself. I usually draw other people, not myself, so I searched through my files to see if I had ever drawn myself in a cartoon. Here it is. I am the one saying, "Is it time for lunch yet?"

The rest of this cartoon is here.

teen talk

Our church has a big youth group. When they go to conferences and other things, the teens will get up and talk about how it went. Here are some highlights.

They actually do have a lot of good things to say, but they all like seem to totally like have the same fill-ins in between everything they say.

one of my Japan photos

I took this photo when I was in Japan in 1994. It's a house sitting in the middle of rice fields.

I'm looking forward to seeing my friends from Japan. They will be visiting us in about a month. (This is not a photo of their house!)
