Coco the Hermit Crab's First Video!

This will be a short post tonight, as I am pretty tired and since I finally got home after work, I've both had to take out the rubbish for the trash service in the morning and upload my Coco the Hermit Crab video, both of which are about equally traumatic for me. (which says a lot right there about skills I may or may not posses.)

First, some Derby, as it was a nip down to see the Naptown Roller Girls Bout weekend. First photo is by Tom Klubens, you can see the entire set, and lovely it is, HERE.

And here's one by Marc Lebryk (full set HERE) of me! Ok, I suspect he didn't set out to take one of me, that's Joan of Dark, from the back, and everyone cheering her, but since it's the only photo I happen to BE in this weekend, I'm going with, yes, photo of me. She won't mind.

I won't go into a full detail on the Bout, or on Derby, since this IS a post on Coco the Hermit Crabs rare daytime scuttle, except to say Derby is beautiful like music, and every bit as strong, wild and magic. I did a post after the last Bout, which said pretty much everything I am still thinking, if you missed it, you can go back and read it HERE.

I would say the only thing I would add to it is that I am more sure than ever now that I want to be a part of this, and I am going to skate. Starting next week I believe. And trust me, there will be a post on THAT evening.

I love this sport. (and not to run a topic to the ground but: I will be that FIT)

There, that's Derby. Now, it being a Monday and me being brain dead, and Coco the Hemit Crab coming out for a rare daytime appearance, I was inspired to take some Actual Video, right there, of Crab Island. (my Boss did briefly wonder if this was exactly what he was paying me for, but this was huge, and I couldn't let it go by.)

Crab Island is not a tame, resort type Island, it's a brutal place. Coco once had a Friend, but the Friend had a bigger and better shell, and on Crab Island, it's all about the lodging. Brutal. No video of it, for which we are grateful, but suffice to say: Coco is now the lone tenant there.

Here he is ("he" is sort of guessed at, I have no clue if it's a he or a she, or how to tell, and if anyone is in possession of this knowledge, leave me ignorant, I do not want to know) in his first (and likely only) video, out for a scuttle to the pool. It's only a minute and 10 seconds, and I am sorry to say the real action doesn't come into play until around 50 seconds, so bare with us. It's worth it.

Love and Coco,

Go Coco Go!!!

At 19:25 Blogger Beez said...

Coco shows off his fabulous shell ensemble and takes a dip in the pool.

Ahhh, resort life (once the Other Crab was departed).

At 20:28 Blogger Jess said...

Heh. Kinda fell in, actually. Coco's been on the sauce.

At 20:32 Blogger Cecily said...

I can't believe I just spent a minute watching a hermit crab fall in it's water...
OK back to my mindless games on Facebook....

At 20:38 Blogger Kitty Cat said...

wait, where is photo of you, pretty little almost-birthday fit queen?

At 20:39 Blogger Kitty Cat said...

oh....i get it now. duh-hoy.

At 20:57 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Must be feeding Coco fermented fruit or something like that Jess...

here I was waiting to hear Boss say "What ARE you doing Quiche?"

That wasn't a fall - it was the crab version of a bellywhacker *grin*

I noticed the omission of one "huge file"

At 23:18 Blogger Marjorie said...

Poor ex-friend of Coco...

Team Coco: 2011

Because talk show hosts are so last decade.

At 00:10 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Coco does not have an underwater playground? Poor Coco, lonely and dry. Where did you guys get him from? You are rather far from the sea...

At 00:20 Blogger ariandalen said...

It Lives! Yay, Coco!

Go, Ms. Fabulous on skates!

Lys - ::snort:: Hi!

Gayle - Thanks for the link to the free audio books!

At 04:10 Blogger Diana Parkhouse said...

Coco has fabulous taste in home d├ęcor.

At 06:39 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Coco came from the MAUL of America, Nathilie. You can get pretty much anything there.


Tom, wasn't sure that could be mentioned, the Huge File. Would LOVE to post it!

Pretty exciting jump into the pool wasn't it?

At 07:11 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Where the heck are my Fiends? How can I be a Fearless Leader without FIENDS????

At 08:17 Blogger Jane said...

I'm here. Barely.

One of the cats I sent on to a new home (his owner - my dear friend Conner) died unexpectedly and the 3 Siamese had to have new homes - Lupe the 10 yo is not eating...

More sadness.

And a horrendous sinus headache...

Whine whine - this wasn't what you meant, was it?

At 08:24 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Jess is a stalker who is following me everywhere, saying nothing, just WATCHING me.Should never have asked her to marry me.

At 08:24 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Well, at least YOU are here, Jane.

At 08:33 Blogger Jess said...

Quit twittering! She says. Go comment on my blog, she says. All right, all right, I'm commenting. Should never have bought those hip boots. Can't get 'em off now. Sigh.

Coco Tanka:

Little hermit crab,
You're way too small for them digs.
You wear your shell well,
But it weighs you down, babe, cramps
your style. And you wobble.

At 08:35 Blogger Jess said...

And you love the stalking. Now go over by the window.

At 08:39 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Jess, that was beautiful. And I really LIKE the hip boots.

At 08:44 Blogger Jess said...

You've seen Marcel the Shell with Shoes on, right?

At 08:58 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Not yet.

At 08:59 Blogger Ticia said...

::looks around::

Quiche- you've changed the place... I like the Derby Girls, horses, and Hermit crab motif you've got going on... Very nice!

It's probably best that the hermit crab stay away from the Bengals...

Great pictures and what a fun video!

At 09:13 Blogger Jess said...

Well there's the link, Missy! Get ye clicking.

It's Ticia! \o/

At 09:24 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Ok, that was funny.

At 09:29 Blogger Cecily said...

I'm here now! Did you read the stalker poem I contributed to The Night Garden?!

Also, my girls were given a Kinect/XBox system for a large group xmas present this last weekend. Last night I played on it, for like over an hour...there are muscles hurting in my back I didn't know I had, and I LOVE it! FIT HERE I COME!!!

At 10:38 Blogger Cecily said...

Man...I hate being a conversation killer...*pouts*

At 10:42 Blogger Pi R Squared said...

Thanks for the Coco video! I love hermit crabs...or even just crabs in general (we're talking sea crabs o you fiends with the wandering minds!) They're so "crabby"...they make me laff! If I'm walking along the shore and see one I always have to pick it up and squeal "Hermit Crab!" (as if they didn't know!) I'm very kind and place them back exactly where I found them...but tide pools can occupy me for hours. Anyway. I digress.
Photos from the derby were great, looks like a swell time!

At 10:44 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

No one killed this conversation, it's sort of limping along. But it's going!!!

Tried to take Bengal vids this morning, they just sort of looked all Diva at me and did NOTHING.

I am off for work, HOPEFULLY that means you will all come out now and give me nice things to read tonight.

At 10:46 Blogger Cecily said...

Nonono...I did it! I shot the conversation, but I did not shoot the deputy.

At 10:49 Blogger Na said...

ah "Nature, red in tooth and claw with ravine." RIP Coco's "friend". i posit that Coco possibly is simply drunk with POWER.

happy to read about your road to fit and new adventures, Ms Medeadly.

i have to say, i have this idea of fit, but am doing nothing about it. i think what i need to do first is get regular sleep. i slog through a day, staying up late at night to get odds and ends done, then am so tired again the next day, i just slog through that, too...

Jess - love Marcel! also, my monsters frequently mention how they want pets. i think one like Allen would do nicely.

saw Lexa and Gayle back there! and ariandalen, it was unusually warm here for about half of January. we've reclaimed the icy winds now, i believe. are all y'all all better?

At 10:51 Blogger Na said...

hey Cecily - happens to all. i think it's all timing, no one kills things. except Coco.

At 10:52 Blogger Jess said...

"My one regret in life is that I'll nevr have a dog. But sometimes I tie a hair to a piece of lint and drag it around."

That's me, that is.

At 10:52 Blogger Cecily said...

Na, that's part of the beauty of FIT, as soon as you start really moving and using your body towards FIT, SLEEP WILL COME.

At 10:53 Blogger Jess said...

Edit: nev[e]r

At 11:08 Blogger Marjorie said...

Hey, I came out and commented at 5 in the morning. (it wasn't a very interesting comment, but still, that's got to count for something, hasn't it?)

(Twitterers may have seen I was off to talk to our local radio station - unfortunately on their breakfast show, in a studio 2 hrs drive from home. Got foolishly nervous beforehand but it was OK, I think. Although not sure why we couldn't just have done it ovr the phone...)
brain dead through lack of proper sleep now.

At 11:13 Blogger Jess said...

And you said it was, what, two minutes of chat in the end? A two hour drive for that?

At 11:14 Blogger Chantrelle said...

COCO!! Welcome to the world of embarrassing yourself on the internet!

I can't wait to go to the derby bout i have tix for in April. My current town...which will be where i live forever and i consider my hometown now....against my junior college town where i learned to be punk rock and used to dress like punky-slut. I'm rooting for current town ;-)

I'm listening to the EP Sxip's band made w/ the Carolina Chocolate's great! I'm sending it to my sister, she'll love it. I like it when our worlds collide. She's seen Carolina Choc. Drops many times before and I've seen Sxip w/ it.

I'm going to finish putting crap up into my attic and then jump into updating the night garden with the exciting new sekrit project :)

At 11:19 Blogger Jess said...

So sekrit we barely know what we're doing!! YAY! \o/

*flies by seat of pants*

At 11:23 Blogger Chantrelle said...

Yeah, we probably shouldn't keep the sekrits from ourselves. I have to re-teach myself the ins and outs of that site, I haven't worked on it in so long every bit of knowledge has seeped from my brain.

At 11:27 Blogger Marjorie said...

Jess - yup. I think they'd planned for it to be slightly longer, originally. Still, the firm got name-checked several times during the show, so my partners & our marketing guy are happy.

At 11:42 Blogger Ticia said...

Robyn- Rhiannon Giddens (of The Carolina Chocolate Drops) is on Sxip's album (that we both have). She has an amazing voice. He was telling me that they played a bunch of festivals together...

At 12:11 Blogger Phiala said...

Some days I think I would be perfectly happy to live in a terrarium on your desk.

Today appears to be one of those days.

How about just until spring?

At 12:33 Blogger Na said...

oh, i don't have trouble actually sleeping. it's the taking time to lie down and close my eyes that's the problem.

but as a matter of fact, i have no work in today, so am going to take a nap right now. in the middle of the day! that's luxury, that is.

sekrit proyekts rool.

At 12:42 Blogger AletaMay said...

The part of my brain required for commenting has been sleepy lately. Took a quick break from doing data entry stuff to watch coco and I am now busy pondering the life of a hermit crab and figuring out what life lessons I need to learn from coco.

Ok. Back to it.

At 12:58 Blogger Marjorie said...

I don't think I want to live in a tank on Q's desk. Seems like there is a 50% chance of ending up eaten.
I never had ambitions to be eaten.

Although a warm environment with nice music & a big bath does have it's attractions

At 13:12 Blogger Phiala said...

Marjorie, right now I'm willing to seriously consider it.

At 13:18 Blogger Pi R Squared said...

Jess- Marcel is wonderful!
(I am quite relieved to discover he won't fight unless provoked!)

At 13:57 Blogger Jess said...

At this point I'd just like to add that I'm really cold. See, Quiche? I said it here, and not on Twitter! I totally saved that stunning piece of information just for your blog.

At 14:01 Blogger ariandalen said...


At 14:03 Blogger Marjorie said...

Jess dear, if you're lurking outside Q's window in hip high boots no wonder you are cold.
If you are a dedicated stalker you have to live with that kind of thing..

At 14:34 Blogger Cecily said...

This is a test to see if I comment if all the other conversation will once again stop...this is just a the case of an actually emergency you will be given directions...they will probably include "run around and scream while waving your arms"


I need a hot chick stalker too. though I will settle for pictures of Jess in the boots outside Quiche's window. ;-)

At 14:44 Blogger Na said...

why hello world. i have had a nap. and this concludes my workout for the day.

Aleta, my brain's been like that too. how did your Day of Organization go?

i would posit that "hot chick stalker" and "Jess in boots" are redundant. unless you're referring to outside temperatures near Fablor's windows, in which case Jess'd become a frozen hot chick in boots.

i made an aural bliss-inducing discovery yesterday: Peter Gabriel doing a cover of a Regina Spektor song.

At 14:46 Blogger Cecily said...

Yes they are redundant, but I can't take Jess from Quiche, so I need my *own* hot chick stalker, like Jess. ;-)

At 15:07 Blogger Marjorie said...

But she was comainibg of the cold. Is it any warmer where you are, Cecily? If so, maybe Jess could stalk you in winter, and Q in summer?

At 15:20 Blogger Cecily said...

Warmer than where Quiche is? yes. Warm? no.

At 15:27 Blogger Jess said...

The worrying thing about this whole conversation is that. at some point, I'm going to have to actually go and buy some hip boots.

At 15:56 Anonymous Wendy Withers said...

I will stalk you, Cecily. ^.^

All you needed to do was ask.

At 15:57 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Are we talking hip, as in trendy or hip as in very high and possibly waders? Cos I imagine being in waders in the winter in Minnesota would be beyond cold.

And Jess, how do you come across all these wonderful videos?

I only have questions so far. Deeper thoughts may arise after I've had breakfast.

At 16:35 Blogger Cecily said...

Sally, I don't know about everyone else, but I am picturing a pair more like this.


At 17:04 Blogger Fiend-in-law said...

Yes, you should definitely get some hip boots, m'dear!

At 17:20 Blogger Jess said...

Uh oh.

At 17:22 Blogger Phiala said...

I am unreasonably excited to have tix to see Bon Jovi tomorrow. I was 16 when Slippery When Wet came out - this is so much the music of my formative years.

At 17:36 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

THIS is more like it. Something to come home to at the end of a work day. Except I have t go back out for a couple of hours.

Yes, quick hide, but I'll only be here for TEN minutes more, then you will be safe again.

Jess is MY stalker-wife in hip boots! Who is this Fiend in Law casting eyes at her????

Oh right. Damm husbands anyway.

Live on my esk, eh? Ought to be interesting if you can beat Coco one on one anyway. Stay in the pool, he doesn't seem to be too good at that...

At 17:53 Blogger Phiala said...

I can take him.

But I'm not moving in until after tomorrow's show.

And why am I at work at nearly 7pm? This is Not Right.

At 19:37 Blogger DataGoddess said...

Okay, fine, I'll stop being busy long enough to make a comment!

I am so annoyed at the weather that prevented us from making it to the Derby on Saturday night. Maybe next game (back at the Coliseum, I think).

At 19:38 Blogger Fiend-in-law said...

Hmm. She's not stalked me in ages.

At least, not that I've noticed....

At 19:51 Blogger Jess said...

I don't have to. You're right there.

I am so putting "stalker-wife in hip boots" into my profile descriptions from now on.

At 20:04 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Rock you some Bon Jovi, Mistress, then come take on Coco!!!

Data, I'm glad you weren't there. Wait, that can out wrong. I meant, I didn't get to SEE you there, so I was glad I didn't miss you. I'd hoped you would have found me if you had been. Come in April, much nicer!

If Jess is still stalking me outside my window in hip boots could someone PLEASE tell her to come in and fax my damm dinner????

At 20:12 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Who will she fax it to Oh Leader?

I'd like a nice hot lamb roast if anyone would like to fax i to me.

At 20:14 Blogger Jess said...

Fax dinner? Oh, that's much easier. Why didn't you say?

*beeeeeepscreeeeooooooeeeee etc.*

At 20:16 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Oh. Very funny. Hear me laughing? One little typo. (ok, kind of funny, I admit)

But it doesn't change the fact that I have no dinner and no energy LEFT. It's all gone.

Fax dinner. It could happen. Or email it. As an attachment.

At 20:44 Blogger Jess said...

Aww! We're laughing with you, Quiche. With you!

I would absolutely fax you dinner if it were feasible.

At 21:24 Blogger Dragonsally said...

me too - if only it were that easy to share our meals!

At 21:29 Blogger Chantrelle said...

If that were possible I could maybe even make some money on FoodPorn!

At 07:15 Blogger LihuaEmily said...

That hermit crab is a cool dude.

At 07:30 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...


Right. What's up for today???? Me, clearly. With Blueberry coffee, which is not as bad as it sounds, I had my doubts but once again, my little flower of coffee goodness was right. Stuff is great.

My inbox blew up in the night. Some people don't sleep. Need more coffee before I can deal with this.

At 07:43 Blogger LihuaEmily said...

Ben and Jack had blueberry coffee last night! Ben took a sip and was like, "Um ... hmm ... innnnnnnteresting." I have no idea whether he enjoyed it.

At 07:46 Blogger Marjorie said...

Good Morning! (or afternoon, as may be)

I am tired, but working. It's very dull. Bills, and numbers and stuff.

At 08:20 Blogger Na said...

good morning evening all!

i am awake, without an alarm clock, in the morning, before i have to be. !!! i wouldn't say i feel rested, but today may not be a slog. it's possible. we shall see.

At 08:36 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Going to Step with Little Evil and the Prissy Bitches. (Sounds like a name for my new cover band...)

At 08:36 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

PS Blueberry coffee IS a little weird.

At 08:36 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Did I really just write a PS on my own blog????

At 08:38 Blogger Ticia said...

You dd...

At 09:43 Blogger Arwenn said...

Blueberry coffee sounds like something Smurfs drink.

At 09:46 Blogger Chantrelle said...

Hubby would think blueberry coffee is an abomination. I will not tell him. ;-)

At 10:38 Blogger Jess said...

Argh! What just happened? Where's my comment? What what what?? Stupid internet.

I said, you don't need to worry unless you're the first to post a comment on your own blog, and the comment says, "FIRST!!" Worry then.

Also, I have chocolate orange coffee.

At 10:45 Blogger Phiala said...

I've had good raspberry coffee, and so-so raspberry coffee. What I really want is good hazelnut coffee. The artificial kind is icky. Maybe I need to pulverize some hazelnuts with it.

Maybe I need to go make some coffee.

At 10:49 Blogger Cecily said...

I'm having orange pineapple juice!

Ok I just wanted to contribute...

At 10:53 Blogger Arwenn said...

I would be willing to reverse my coffee-is-icky stance if someone were to come up with Nutella flavored coffee...

At 11:16 Blogger Jess said...

Nutella flavored coffee would be chocolate hazelnut, wouldn't it? I've had that before.

At 11:18 Blogger Phiala said...

But it has to be good chocolate hazelnut.

At 12:12 Blogger Jess said...

We buy our coffee here. All Organic and Free Trade beans. They deliver. (Unfortunately not overseas.)

At 12:15 Blogger Phiala said...

Yeah, well I buy my coffee from my own locally-owned business that roasts it onsite so :-P~~~.

*grin* Joking, I swear. We do not actually need coffee wars. I think.

At 12:33 Blogger Jess said...

Nicholas Bros. is locally owned! They do roast on site! Boom! Pow! Raargh!

Sorry. I don't know what came over me. Ugly competitive streak. :P

At 12:44 Blogger Cecily said...

I avoid the whole free-trade, locally grown/roasted thing, by not buying coffee!

Boom? Pow? ;-)

At 12:54 Blogger Phiala said...

But they're not local to me! I'd have to ship! Shipping is evil! Buy local! Walk to the store!

Sorry. Apparently I'm a bit punch-drunk from being socked like that.

Though my coffee source ships too. Gotta make a living.

At 13:19 Blogger Phiala said...

I started this project in... 2008, I think.

I just now developed the first actual conclusion to go in the paper.

Science is slow.

Also, this project turned out to be much harder than anticipated, and the student I hired to do the grunt work screwed it all up. And I had to write the software from scratch, and have actually published the software and written the methods paper.

But still, three years later I have finally produced the first bit of information for which I was given a pile of money.

At 13:25 Blogger Jess said...

Yay! Go science! Slowly. \o/

Do you go to the Cheese Shoppe, don't you? Is the one on...I can't remember the name of the street. Little brick-cobbled courtyard near that Indian restaurant.

At 13:27 Blogger Jess said...

In other news, I appear to have lost the ability to form coherent sentences, let alone proofread. Fortunately, it's only the internet.

At 13:28 Blogger Phiala said...

Yes, that one. Cheese shop, on Calder. Bill roasts his own coffee now, and if you need an off-duty town cop that's the place to find one.

At 13:46 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

No coffee wars. I don't care WHERE you got yourself beans before, now, please switch to the Official Fearless Leader Brand Coffee, ie Joan of Dark's

I'll have my own label there in time. See if I don't. You all can come up with the NAME for it. (it won't be blueberry) Sounds like Choc Hazelnut is what you want.

There. Settled.

Back to work. Sigh. Little Evil killed me this morning. Need. Nap.

At 13:51 Blogger Cecily said...

Little Evil might have killed you dead this morning, but the burning question is whether or not you stuck it to the prissy bitches...

At 14:01 Blogger Chantrelle said...

Hubby roasts his own coffee beans. He gets the green beans from an organic free trade deal too. I drink coffee about once a month. I can't drink other coffee now! The beans that are roasted 24-48 hours before don't have any bitterness. The oil hasn't come out of the beans yet and had the chance to go rancid. He makes me a mocha with Recchiuti hot chocolate and his espresso. I'm spoiled. Just another way i'm a food snob.

At 14:09 Blogger Marjorie said...

Uh, Fearless Leader? Excuse me. Um, are those of us overseas permitted to buy our coffee more locally?

I suspect that paying shipping may eat into my emergency hobnob budget..

At 15:04 Blogger LihuaEmily said...

I am saving my burning appetite for coffee for the next hour when I am meeting with a friend for said coffee. Self-control.

At 17:54 Blogger Jess said...

I know what you can all drink coffee out of! Great Lakes Bengal Rescue-themed mugs! And there's a bag to put the mugs in!

Magic is on the mugs! You can drink straight from his face. Almost like the real thing!

At 17:59 Blogger Beez said...

Bubble gum flavored vodka. Blueberry coffee.

What's next?

At 18:00 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...



Can't move.

I do recall getting some in on the Prissy Bitches this morning but that feels like a really long time ago.

I do recall working all day. But that seems far away to.

I did the gym again, Zumba lite, which was not much more than a relaxing after work thing. But that is fading.

I just know I'm really really hungry and I didn't plan dinner before this moment. Not good.

Wait. Jimmy Johns. Veggie on WW. They will BRING it to me.

It's all good.

At 18:35 Blogger LihuaEmily said...

I ate out tonight. Mmmmmm veggie burger with veggie stuff. Could not eat the fries, though. Lotta veggie stuff in there.

At 19:09 Anonymous Wendy Withers said...

Did anyone else see this on Kyle's blog?!?!?!?


"I'd posted a few days back about the fire at the Widmere apartment building and the pet rescue that was going on. Things have taken an ill turn. While a number of missing pets have been spotted inside the building, in the windows of their own apartments, and in the building by security guards, the city is refusing to let rescue workers into the building and is scheduled to demolish it, with these pets still trapped inside."

-18. Not the windchill. Just the chill.

But hey, I'm going to ride My Little Pony. No worries. Should be a great time. Yeah. Really looking forward to this. Sure am.

If there are any stalkers outside could you please go start my car?

At 11:46 Blogger Jaime said...

I can never decide if I love the posts more or the comments...

So much conversation! It's like people watching... but online?

I <3 Coco and even more I love how many incredible animal loving fiends are here!

Oh yeah - and I just got back to the States (been living in Japan) and it turns out my bestie is a Derby Girl for a new league here on the island. Freakin INCREDIBLE sport and crazy FIT ladies kickin' ass. I looooove it but know I have a LONG way to go, but am completely interested in giving it a go!

At 11:55 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Cool Jaimie! Glad you are here, be welcome! What island are you talking bout? Where are you going for Derby? We can compare bruises!

Rode. It rocked. Flying lead changes, multiple ones. (Non dressage people, kind of skipping from front foot to front foot at a canter)

At 12:09 Blogger Jaime said...

I'm over in the Pacific Northwest on Whidbey Island. The Whidbey Island Roller Girls are just getting started and have full teams right now, so I might hafta bide my time a bit and start showing up to practices to see how things go... and get a better idea of what I need to work on for endurance and strength training.

But, uh, first I gotta get comfortable on those skates! *laughs One lap at a time, baby! ;o)

And go YOU for having a great riding session!!! *cheers madly* Yanno, I bet being able to ride well will really help with derby too - having a strong core and good situational awareness is, I've been told, really beneficial for derby.

Gotta love how various things in life really compliment each other, eh?


At 15:04 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Did a Sekret Stalker start the car for you Oh Fearless Leader?

We need more videos of the dressage!

At 21:14 Blogger Jess said...

Hey, I've been very open and honest about the stalking. It's not sekrit at all.

And no, I didn't start the car. I was having my hair re-redded.

At 23:36 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Reredding of hair is a very good reason not to be stalking at the particular moment.

Maybe it was really the Bengals who snuck out and started the car, because they wanted the house to themselves.

Well, that was strange...I'm on the desktop not the laptop, and blogger had a whole different log in procedure. Could they have changed it all in the two hours I've been out?

At 09:10 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Working on a new post. No. Really. Trying.

At 09:22 Blogger Jane said...

Have a neurologist appt on Tue for the eye/face pain I've had since Sept. It kind of comes and goes, came to stay about a month ago. Can't decide if there is only one thing wrong or multiple things.

Eliminated sinus problems with CT scans. New glasses with correct Rx, no contacts since mid-summer. Massage therapist does TMJ work on jaws (not sure which came first, the eye pain or the tight jaw). Possible tooth issue so may have to go to oral surgeon. Eyes are healthy, not dry.

I mean really, I get so discouraged and in addition, it HURTS!

OK. Not what anyone means by chat.

On the upside, it is gorgeous and sunny, high of 50F, and it is Friday. Valentine's Day is Monday and I need to run out and buy some underwear for DH. His black thong from Fredericks of Hollywood finally worn out. TMI, maybe?

Cats are healthy. Always good. And they have a new litter box to play with, always a fun time.

The older Siamese who belonged to my friend who died, is finally eating again :-)

So most things are OK.

At 09:31 Blogger Phiala said...

Of course that's what we mean by chat: real people with real lives, not sanitized boring always-cheery people.

I hope that gets figured out fast; chronic pain is awful, not knowing why is awful. But I'm glad the kitties are all well, especially the Siamese.

At 09:32 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

HA! Found the picture I wanted. Now I just need linky things for all the cool new bengal Bits...The mugs? Erin's page???

Look, do I have to write this myself????

At 09:33 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Opps. Sorry. Stalker Wife Jess sent them.

At 09:34 Blogger Jess said...

That was quick! I only just hit send. Well. "Just" in the sense of about a minute and a half ago. Maybe more like two minutes.

At 09:38 Blogger Jane said...

I think if I knew why that would be a tremendous help.

All the kitties are Siamese, but the 2 younger ones don't have the "everyone's going to eat me" attitude and they are younger, more adaptable and adoptable.

I want the mugs!!! Love that Magic face...

At 09:43 Blogger Jess said...

That's right, Fiends. RUN! JESS HAS ARRIVED! Do you see why I'm on Twitter all the time, now? Do you?

Here is my contribution to chat: it is Day Two of Re-Redded hair and my scalp is starting to feel skanky. I am always afraid to wash it right away after having it coloured, given the Very Special Red--you know, the one that looks like I dunked my head in a vat of jam--really only lasts a couple of weeks. After that I just sort of go boring brown-with-a-bit-of-ginger. What's the point of going Very Special Red if it isn't going to stay special? Huh? Tell me that!

Do I sound irritable to you? I think I must be. I start off fine and then everything just annoys me. Im'a put my boot through the internet and send the bill to Neil Gaiman! Booyah.

Right. Stopping now. Sorry.

At 09:46 Blogger Jess said...

Oh, there's Sharon! I thought she went, but she didn't. Only Sharon is brave enough to stay!

I'm sort of proud of the Magic-in-your-face one. That was a fine idea I had, there. Not to toot my own horn or anything.


At 09:47 Blogger Arwenn said...

Jess - I have never gone very- special-red, but when I have tried red-er, the stylist warned me not to use very hot water to wash the hair, apparently that speeds up the fading process.

At 09:53 Blogger Jess said...

Hmm. And I like a hot shower, too. Drat and bother. Frowny face.

At 09:54 Blogger Arwenn said...

Oh me too, so I just keep my hair up when I'm doing the really hot shower bit and turn the temp down for the washing of the hair bit.

At 09:59 Blogger Cecily said...

First, not knowing is the worst. I hope you get some answers soon and they are easily fixable!

Second, yes to keep the easy fade colors longer you have to wash your hair in the coldest water you can stand. It sucks, but your hair is usually healthier and softer with cold washes anyway, or at least that has been my experience. :-)

Last, my contribution to Chat...I have had a knot of anxiety in my gut and shoulder for some time now. I can't seem to attribute it to anything or anyone, but it's driving me batty. I hate feeling like this. Can someone make me some soothing tea and cuddle me while we watch frivolous chic flicks until this damned thing goes away? (I guess I could get Wendy in from the cold...unless she hasn't actually started stalking me yet)

At 10:04 Blogger Arwenn said...

Cecily - Eep! I hate that knot! As wacky as this sounds I think that sometimes for me it can be brought on by a lot of unrest and uncertainty in the world...Egypt, the economy and the weather would do it.

I would like to formally offer my services as a stalker seeing as it is 7 degrees here and we still have about two feet of snow on the ground.

At 10:15 Blogger Cecily said...

YAY! More stalker goodness! It's 32F still cold but at least not in the negative numbers!

And yes, I have had this feeling before with unrest in the world, but it's usually before the unrest happens, not during. *sigh* The last time I had this feeling my husband was in Florida for work, and someone drugged him in hopes of robbing him later in the night. Let's just say that night was hell, as he was incoherent and calling me for hours whimpering for me to help him from 5 states away. And the time before that...I don't even want to consider...*tries not to start sobbing*
