I love a good mail day

I just went to pick up my mail and to my surprise, all my held mail, which should have been delivered Wednesday, was suddenly there.

Among the goodies that arrived:

- 2 packets of licorice coffee (one my XMas gifts for Mom)
- Check for my work on my buiding's web site (yay, money)
- My BCBS insurace card (yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!)
- First premium for BCBS (good b/c only $15, I paid 3 months ago as a "deposit")
- Numerous XMas cards
- Some kind of credit on my electric bill
- $20 worth of stamps I ordered from USPS that I had feared lost in the mail
- IRA statement w/earnings of $800 last month (has earned like $5000 in 2 years, to my amazement)

There really were hardly any bills. Which is great news!

Voice Post: Raspy vs. Voicemail Lady

301K 1:27
“Some combo of alcohol, holiday treats, sinus infection, and talking too long, too loudly, has ripped my voice to shreds. At least my regular voice, I mean. If I want to talk without sounding screechy and/or raspy, I can talk in my voicemail lady voice. Which I may have to to keep people screaming from me ("Aaaah, you sound like fingernails on a chalkboard!")”

More Pictures....

I've got video to post later (and yes, I still have to post about the last 2 days in Germany) but for now, some stills of Luckie, the overly photographed cat :)

The birdcage is Luckie's favorite morning perch. Poor Pell is like, "Um... scuse me!"

Dead and Deader, LOL and LOLer

This week Sci Fi Original Movie, Dead and Deader, is a baaaad zombie movie with some memorably absurd lines, which make it more memorable than it deserves to be. A few choice ones I wrote down just in the first hour:

Zombie Hero: Do you have any red meat? RED MEAT!

Supporting Black Comic Relief: There are so many guns, I feel like I'm in New Jack City.

Supporting Black Comic Relief: [Talking about opening a pirate-themed restaurant] It'll be called Pirate's Booty and the food will be booty-licious. And I'll be Pirate Blackbeard.
White Zombie Hero: But you don't have a beard, just that peach fuzz stuff.
Supporting Black Comic Relief: But I'm black and there's some hair there!

Supporting Black Comic Relief: Ever since I met you, my life has turned into the "Thriller" video!

Big Haired Neighbor: Are you guys all in a band or do you just have really bad taste?

Big Haired Neighbor: My husband left me for a Brazilian pool boy. I haven't made love to a man in three years.

Funeral Director (head banging while he preps a body): Oh, sorry, I didn't hear you. I just downloaded some killer Black Sabbath.
Hero Chick: Sabbath rocks!

I have a few more but another day I guess. I've uploaded them to MySpace, along with some others I put up a couple of weeks ago. Check out my profile and you can see more.
