Happy Holidays!

2008 is coming to a close. The holiday season - is - well here! Being Christmas Eve the question is, what is everyone doing? Hanging out with family? Eating? Watching movies? Skiing? Where ever you are and whatever you are doing I hope that you are happy, healthy and loved! Best wishes over this holiday. Here are some photos from my trip to DC.

Washington DC

I only really had 2 full days in our capital. While there I went to The Mall. Loads of museums and the zoo. I took a few photos. Although it was dumping rain most of the time I was there - so the indoor stuff was much better than the outside. The butterflies were in the butterfly room at the Natural History museum. The animals were in the zoo. Going to the zoo when it is raining a bit and 35 degrees means there are NO kids and hardly any other people as well. It was very nice. Oh - and everything is free. How cool is that??

I found that in two different cases people were beyond nice with homeless people in DC. First, there was a guy in Starbucks that the employees let warm up, use the restroom to get clean, and gave him hot coffee and yesterdays pastries. Second was at a hair cut place where they gave weekly hair styling and washing to two homeless ladies. I was overwhelmed by the kindness of these acts.

Garmin 405

As my pit betty of the year award Mike got me the Garmin 405 (GPS watch thing ... mostly for running). I decided to wear it on this trip. So, far it has been interesting. In the course of a day as using it as a watching it has 83% of its battery life left. I found out that the part of the highway between Santa Fe and Los Alamos(where you get off for the bi-pass) is 7300 feet. Which means that is why the snow was falling more there than in Los Alamos when we left the house early yesterday morning.

I plan on using the map out my route feature today while walking around Washington DC. Wish me luck with my groovy new watch!

In The Holiday Spirit.

December 5th. Just a few more weeks to Christmas and the holiday spirit is all around the house. The tree is up. The Santa glasses are filled with coffee. And I have an overwhelming urge to wrap things. The cats have been keeping their distance - but it doesn't mean I wont get one of them. Happy December All!

Weeks Worth.

This past week has been crazy. Trying to finish up as much as possible at work (being that I only have 3 days of work left before the Christmas break). Getting ready to go out to my dads this weekend (dropping of a piano). Starting to train for another half marathon. Wrapping Christmas gifes. Preparing at work to be gone (to Washington DC for a week). And of course getting a little bit of relaxing on as well.

This photo was the most emailed photo in 2008. Just thought they were cute and I wanted to share!

Yesterday this photo was sent to me. Too funny! Enjoy everyone.

Avivah asked what my middle name was - that would be Angelicque. Turns out (I had to look it up) the meaning is messanger of god and it is French. Now, if I were a messanger of god what would I have to tell people. Hmmm.
#1. Be nice to one another.
#2. Help others out.
#3. Love and be loved.
#4. Get over it.

I'll have to talk to the big guy to get more things to tell people!

Hats That Kill Me.

Lately whenever I see entertainment news there is some star with a silly hat on. In LA ... this time of year ... wearing a stocking hat. I'm not sure who started this "fashion" statement. BUT WHY? What is wrong with a baseball hat??
