Another alert!
This time it's TV related - guess who's coming to a TV near you in about a week??

Oh yes, peeps...Nathan Fillion has a new TV show on ABC. It's called Castle and it's about a mystery author who gets pulled into a case with the local police and decides he likes it there. Castle premieres March 9th at 10e/9c.

All I say is Wo0T!!! My captain is coming back to TV with a show that might actually succeed! Yay!!

Any other good shows headed our way, peeps?

It's never too early to start vacay planning!
While my mom was visiting, we finally figured out where we're going on this year's cruise. Wo0t! Normally, we would be going in April but this year we're waiting until the Fall. My mom has some projects at home she wants to work on (I see lots of work in my dad's future LOL) and I have work crap that will be taking up most of my time this Spring. Stoopid work. *kicks work in the shins*

Anyhoo, we've decided to do another trans-Atlantic cruise. West-bound this year. That east-bound one kicked our butts - we had a week of 23 hour days. And it all caught up with us right as we got to the Mediterranean, like delayed jet-lag. This time we will have several 25 hour days. Yay!

We're venturing to places we haven't been, mostly. Intrepid explorers R us. ;-) Behold the map:

Ooops! The map is tiny. Sorry. Try this version:

The only place we've already been is Edinburgh (which is lovely, btw). But we haven't been anywhere in Scandinavia or Ireland, Iceland or Greenland. Yay!

September is awfully far away, though.

Anybody else going anywhere fun sometime soon?? Spring Break is right around the corner.

Happy Groundhog Day, peeps!

Where has January gone??

Since I haven't been providing Friday Fun facts (because I suck), I'll provide groundhog fun facts. Wikipedia says:

The groundhog (Marmota monax), also known as the woodchuck, land beaver or whistlepig (comment from me: Whistlepig?! *snicker*), is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots. Other marmots, such as the yellow-bellied and hoary marmots, live in rocky and mountainous areas, but the woodchuck is a lowland creature. It is widely distributed in North America and common in the northeastern and central United States. Groundhogs are found as far north as Alaska, with their habitat extending southeast to Alabama (comment from me: Yup, we haz 'em).

Groundhogs are one of the few species that enter into true hibernation, and often build a separate "winter burrow" for this purpose. This burrow is usually in a wooded or brushy area and is dug below the frost line and remains at a stable temperature well above freezing during the winter months. In most areas, groundhogs hibernate from October to March or April, but in more temperate areas, they may hibernate as little as 3 months. To survive the winter, they are at their maximum weight shortly before entering hibernation. They emerge from hibernation with some remaining body fat to live on until the warmer spring weather produces abundant plant materials for food.

Outside their burrow, individuals are alert when not actively feeding. It is common to see one or more nearly-motionless individuals standing erect on their hind feet watching for danger. When alarmed, they use a high-pitched whistle to warn the rest of the colony.
(note from me: They always seem to be watching the traffic as it zooms by.)

Repeat after me, peeps:

How much wood

would a woodchuck chuck,

if a woodchuck

could chuck wood?

As much wood

as a woodchuck would,

if a woodchuck

could chuck wood.

Well, peeps, what's it gonna be? Six weeks til Spring or six more weeks of Winter?
