Jaggery the Rascal: Beginners guide to Cybersex

There's a local guy on AIM who keeps trying to hook up with me, DESPITE the fact that I am a happily married woman. Now, I used to be called a Temptress and rightly so, and I still like to flirt (hey guys! there's a difference between flirt and tease!) but I never heard of this site till my DH pointed me to it and suggested that I let this fellow know about it. Here's a preview
Enough already! How do I DO cybersex?

Sounds like an easy question, but in fact, to do it properly requires considerable thought, preparation, empathy and visualisation. It also requires an ability to be able to 'read' your partner, to anticipate what he or she is thinking, and is about to do next. This is difficult if you've only just met someone, and much easier if you've played together before. You'll note that I said 'do it properly', as if to imply there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. I happen to think that there is; a good cyber sex scene will flow easily, b…

Joy's 3rd Birthday -- I wanted a seperate webpage, but Picasa is being fussy

Josh and his friend had a lot of fun blowing up balloons

Balloon Lightsabers

After the party, we went to the Wiggles concert. Perfect timing this year to coincide with her birthday

Lights ...

Camera ...

Popcorn ...

WIGGLES!!

Action!

Murray Wiggle (Cook) .... plays a pretty good "Stairway to Heaven"

Do the Monkey ....

and elephant, and tiger .... the Wiggles music is designed to get you moving

I forget what song this one went to

Joy's newest brother -- she tried to call Wags to come home with us

more Wags

Joy finally got up and started dancing around the 3rd song.









There's Murray

balyoons -- according to Anthony

The dinosaurs from the Cave man song fit right in with Joy's current fascination -- dinosaurs





She loved dancing to Eagle Rock

Which Cartoon Character Are You?

Ever wondered which cartoon character you are most like? Well, a team of researchers got together and analyzed the personalities of cartoon characters, and put the information gathered into this quiz. Answer each question with the answer that most describes you. Check out which cartoon character you are at the end of this quiz.

You are Peppe le Pew (without the smell).

You are a lover. Romance, flowers, and wine are all you need to
enjoy yourself. You are serious about all commitments. A family
person. You call your Mom every Sunday, and never forget a Birthday.
Don't let your passion for romance get confused with the real thing. (must have been the ice cream question...)

Great, I took it again with different answers except one (and yes, I changed the ice cream on) and I STILL came out as the skunk. I wonder if I can say that I am my mom's favorite now. She LOVES Pepe le Pew.

She has a new saying ....

So, Tim has been teaching Joy "Who da man?!" when they play basketball. And they say it to each other throughout the week. So I tried to catch it on video. So between "Who da man" and "Whazzup" (Josh is teaching her that one) ... I have a semi-ghetto little girl, who's very cute about it right now.

You know you're from CALIFORNIA if...

So as not to be outdone by all the redneck, hillbilly, and Texan jokes, you know you're from California if:

1. Your coworker has 8 body piercing and none are visible.
2. You make over $300,000 and still can't afford a house.
3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English.
4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower.
5. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?
6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.
7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.
8. You can't remember. . is pot illegal?
9. A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.
10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S.
11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney really IS George Clooney.

"I'll clean the ants up".

We have an ant problem. I think my way of dealing with them is rubbing off on Joy. After her initial "Mommy, there's ants on the floor!!!" she got the soap and water, drenched them and started picking them up with a paper towel.

That's my girl!

I'm ready for my meltdown now

Storage Technology - Get Perpendicular

This was so cute, reminded me of SchoolHouse Rock

O no!

Tim thought this was one of the best system maintenance/OOPS! pages he's seen in a while. I agree.

Obituary

Died 24/7/365 in America's Heart, USA

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of Common Sense who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge). His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.

Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. It declined even further when schools were required to get…

Spring at the Farm

I took Joy to the zoo for a mommy/daughter bonding time. The Trillium Creek farm was having a special program that day. We got to see a sheep shearing, get her face painted, and of course, see the elephants. Ever since I took her to the circus she has LOVED elephants. The first photo is of Joy watching a spinner who knows a friend of mine who also spins and dyes some awesome yarn.

petting a mini-lop

petting a very large chicken

riding a John Deere tractor

we watched the sheep shearing twice

my serious little elephant

I asked her to smile. It almost looks as if she has real tusks ...

riding on an elephant sculpture. I think that she would have MUCH preferred to ride a real one.

They brought out 4 elephants at once. I missed them waving to us. Joy had a blast watching them.

We got to watch them being hand-fed and then brushed. This was the baby elephant. Joy tried to hop the fence to get to them. She really loves elephants.
