Oh right true! D'oh!

We're supposed to get up to the "balmy" 40s soon, whoo!

It's allegedly summer! We haven't had a lot of warm weather but it is on its way apparently. My sister has just gone to Perth, and whilst it is going to be hot there tomorrow, the following four days after that are going to be scorchers - well over 100F.

Eventually that weather will make it here.

Hey Marg, if your cold was anything like Nathans I feel for you! On the flip side, he is now fine!

BTW - the warm weather is on its way!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

Finding out that Subway is discontinuing their Subway Card, at least accordding to the workers at the Vashon Subway. They said we have to use our points by Feb 8th, we have 114 on our card. I can't find any news about this online but check at your local Subway if you use it and ask them.

I was at a mate's place after last night, decided to stay there rather than come home at 7am, and while we were killing time I hopped on the internet for awhile and was looking at Corvette's (the car :p ) as I'm a massive car nut. One from 1972, in very good condition, was listed at just $17,000 which I can almost afford now ... but then I saw the cheapest price listing for my ultimate dream car: the 1963 Corvette Stingray split-window coupe going for $125,000. I'm never going to own that car. :(

Damn cat - although this might also have to go by the funniest thing happened today :p :)

I've got this small paperbag from the story with carry handles on it. Ms Fraidy cat decides to get curious and instantly gets tangled and terrified and she's off running about the house with the bag still attached somehow. Being as mom (me) is hobbling about in a walker I can't exactly catch up with her and rescue her from her terror. At the moment I can't find her, although I did hear a bit of rustling paper a short while ago. I do hope she manages to extricate herself soon.

We lost power yesterday. Around 9:30, during Desperate Housewives, the power went out and didn't come back on till about 11am this morning.

When Harm got up to get ready for school, she called to see if there was going to be school and couldn't get ahold of anyone, so went back to bed. Woke up to find a Schoolreport.org message that school was going to be delayed by 2 hours cause it didn't have power either. But since we had no power I couldn't check the messages online!
