Today was a good day. Do you know why? Sophie Jane, that's why!
Do you see the ruffled white socks? She's in amazing condition too. Not dirty at all... almost brand new. Her yarn hair has a bit of fuzzing and that's all. She is the gorgeous one. Much cuter than she looks in the picture. Sophie Jaaaaaaaaane!

I also got a kokeshi mailed to me from Japan! Today = success!

A DIFFERENT Rainbow for Once...

Today there was no breakfast with Rainbow... but there WAS an actual rainbow! It rained on and off all day, which sucked when I went out to buy olives, but this is a good picture.
I was sorely disappointed by the lack of chuckles in the Biden/Palin debate. The rainbow doesn't quite make up for that loss. :(

Very Real Horror. I'm Serious

Okay, this post is going to be INCREDIBLE. But first I have to post the requisite "BREKKY WITH MICHAEL" picture. Can you tell that even HE is sick of me taking these pictures?
Okay. So. Get ready because this really scared the hell out of me. I was going to take a shower. My bedroom light wasn't on when I grabbed my towel from my room, and neither was the bathroom light. So the hallway and the bathroom were only illuminated by faint light from the living room. YOU HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND HOW DIM IT WAS. I went from my bedroom and this is what I saw in the bathroom:
Do you get the gist of what this looks like? Let me put it in a creepier light. I seriously froze in my tracks. I thought it might have been Jim, but I knew he was in the living room, and he also isn't (what looked like) a little man in a suit jacket standing beneath the towel rack against the wall.
Brrr! Ugh, seriously. I called Jim over to see it and he was totally creeped out too.
Of course, it was just the towel. But my stomach lurched with fear.

The Yowler and the Yolks

The insane Chibi.
She misses Emily, who is away for the week. Seriously, her yowls sounded so betrayed. She was definitely asking me WHERE THE HELL Emily is at.
Oh, and just because I promised and it is true:
More breakfast foods with Mike.

Breakfast Mike

This week is going to involve a lot of going to the Mikes' house. Which means I am going to be eating a lot of breakfast foods. At 4 PM. Which means I'm going to have a lot of pictures like this one.

Just a random picture. Sometimes there's nothing to do but look at the garbage.

L'emily et l'elephant

Today Emily and I walked from my house to Yonge and College, under the pretense of enjoying the cooler temperatures, to go shopping with our no money. After all, who doesn't like an hour-long walk in drizzling rain?
... especially when you have a bicycle. To her credit, she walked it the whole way there, plus a heavy purse with two books in it. I was concerned that it would start raining and she would hop aboard and speed off to dry safety, leaving me to wither and sop. But our luck prevailed...
... despite a close-encounter with l'elephant l'ectronique. Do you not agree that this really has to be one of the most awkward, ridiculous cleaning vehicles ever created? I see its function, but I also see its absolute, pachyderm, trunked ludicrousness.
We also saw the first signs of fall when we walked across the viaduct. Changing leaves...
More changing leaves...
... lying in the rain...
And, of course, we had breakfast and I love taking pictures of my dining companions and the food we ingest.
That's all. In the likely words of l'elephant l'ectronique once it has sucked a particularly difficult piece of trash up its trunk... "Viola!"
