Studs in a jar

For those of us who grew up on a horse breeding farm, the directions on the Stud Suds jar make for hysterical reading. In this case, the “studs” refer to metal studs that can be screwed into the bottom of horseshoes like cletes. It doesn’t mean the jar will let me fit a stallion in there and then shake him up a bit.


Mean Kitty Song!

If you havne’t seen this YouTube video, it’s hysterical. Watch the antics of a mean kitty while his human sings about how mean the kitty Sparta is (not really mean, just wants attention). Very cute.

Stella play-bites when she is very excited. She has never broken skin but she will nip. She loves to rough-house like Sparta does. Ambush will also play hard and likes to have his rump patted. In his youth, he also used to play fetch like Sparta does.

Warning: You won’t be able to get this song out of your head!

Only horse people…

A friend of mine sent me this. I couldn’t stop laughing, and realized that if you don’t have horses, you’ll miss out on most of the jokes. Horses come with a specialized vocabulary that can be rather opaque.

If you have a question, ask. I’ll be happy to explain a term.

Only horse people…

Ganked from my friend’s LJ

I took the test… and was surprised. 🙂 I suppose being classified as a sorceror is better than a succubus, right?

Which creature of the night are you?

Your Result: Sorceror

Control is the name of your game. You are a studied tactician and scientist and you seek a kingdom where things make sense, damn the morals, even if you have to create it. You are cold, calm and calculating.

Lying in wait…

I’ve blogged before about some of the antics we get into at work. We get our work done but we also have a lot of fun. Lately there has been a streak of pratical jokes.. Nothing bad. Just oh covering an entire desk with aluminum foil or filling an office with balloons (more on that later).

One of the guys who has been involved with the practical jokes went on vacation a week and a half ago. He was almost disappointed when he came back and nothing was done.

Today he’s coming back from a business trip.

I’m sitting in his office waiting to video the look on his face.

We didn’t do anything bad. Just creative =) And it won’t interfere with his regular work. Much.
