There are a whole bunch of mushrooms in my front yard, almost in a fairy ring. They are so cool and I had fun photographing them this afternoon:

clicky for fungus! )

Isn't he/she beautiful? Too bad it was in a dark hallway so the picture doesn't have good light. Thankfully the moth didn't mind my flash.

They planted some new flowers outside my apartment:


And Theo is worn out from all of his lazing around:

My apartment building is so ugly, I like to find beauty around it, no matter how small or insignificant.

That will be passing between the Earth and the Moon at 4:06 pm PDT happens to hit Santa Barbara, then I just wanted to say I love you all.

If it hits somewhere else, I hope you are not there.

My Day.

When I was in Ventura to go to the endo 2 weeks ago, I saw a tree that was chained in by a fence and it killed me that I didn't get a picture. Well, today I did!

But first, this bumper sticker cracked my shit up.


Unfortunately it isn't clear enough to really read it: One Big Ass Mistake America

My boss called me into his office to show me that his window spider (he's been there for almost a year!) caught a big fly and was busy sucking it dry. I, of course, had to take a picture!

My day.

I thought after the trauma of this morning's fire, I should post some happier pics. I spent the day at Mom & Dad's watching football, eating good food and hanging out with family. It was nice.

Let the happy goldfinch butts welcome you in!


clicky for the wonderfully mundane )

You know, I saw fire images on TV several times today and each time they gave me a shudder and my heart would race. I'm really sick of fires. It was so fucking scary this morning being woken up with the noise and peeping through my blinds and seeing a wall of fire right outside the window. I really need to go away from this obnoxious and really dangerous arsonist. Quit picking on our alley!

It's pretty cold outside and when it rained this morning for about an hour, it left snow on the hilltops. This is my office view, and I like the juxtaposition of the green hills with the snowy hills above it. Sorry my phone camera is shitty.


And the bosses bought us all pizza today for lunch. It was tasty.

It has been really windy today.


Also, last night when I stopped to get a burrito, next door is the ciagrette store, which actually has not one but two cigar store Indians out front. Here's the fierce one.

There is a pair of what Travis and I think are Sharp Shinned Hawks that screech and fly around our office building. Travis and I are big bird watchers so we love watching them. This morning one was in the tree across the street (right in the view of our office windows) pulling some creature apart piece by piece. So first Travis went out to look (I thought I got a great picture of him looking up at the tree [I took it from my office window] but my hand was shaking and it was really blurry) then I went out to look and take pictures. Here's the hawk and the carcass (it's very hard to see - I tried to 'shop it to make the hawk and the bloody mess of what we think is a pigeon more visible) and then two pictures of the mess below. Some poor shmuck in a Honda parked on the street has pigeon guts, blood, bones, feathers and hawk shit all over his car. Check it out.



Burn area

I had to drive to Santa Maria today to go to Target to get an electric blanket and a cool cheap radiant heater (that way, even though my apartment's heater is broken, I can still get heat in my bedroom - the broken heater in my apartment is in the living room anyway and the heat never reached my bedroom), and I had to drive through the burn area on the air force base. The plants that burned look very cool and they're right up against the highway since the fire jumped over it to burn the other side.

But first, let Tiger remind you to FOCUS:

Enjoy! We're going to see Sherlock Holmes tomorrow (I think Mom might even go) so that's cool.

My parents have this beautiful water lily in their fish pond. If you look closely on the left you can see fish. :)

I went outside to smoke and saw that a bunch of toadstools had popped up during the day. I grabbed my camera while there was still enough light.

Clicky! )
