7 Years Ago Today...

If you were anywhere near the Seattle area, you got rocked! We had one of the biggest earthquakes in the state's history - a 6.8 magnitude. Someone showed me this video the other day where some guys at Microsoft had a webcam going during the quake. It's actually a great capture - and although it seems like a short jolt on the video, it seemed like a millenium when it was happening. It lasted like 41 seconds or something, which is long for a quake. I was walking outside of my work building going to my car to head to the gym. The ground started shaking while I was walking, and it seemed like I was surfing. I grabbed a hold of the top of my car and was praying that the glass from the all-glass building complex I was in wouldn't shatter and impale me. It didn't, obviously, but what a trip!! If you experienced it, share your story with me!

Here's the video.

What do you have on YOUR refrigerator?




















Since my Mother-In-Law is a new widow, she wanted to have and know how to use a gun. Jim and I took care of that and took her shooting last weekend. Quite hillarious, I must say. I hadn't shot my gun (see below) in almost 13 years so I wanted to make sure I still "had it". Woohoo! I do! Killed that target! I was proud of myself and stuck it on the frig. I know, I have issues.

Back to my obsessions...food/cooking/pictures/doggies

First, you must agree that anything sleeping is precious. ESPECIALLY fuzzy things. When I'm working on the computer, he always curls up in the middle of my mess. and snores.


















And here we have the first rotisserie masterpiece: chicken. I have to say it was pretty tasty and I felt all proud and stuff that we have a ROTISSERIE.










Do you love Giada? I love Giada. Her recipes are simple, but soooo tasty. You don't have to be a chef to prepare these meals - and they are quick, too. This recipe called for veal, but being cheap and broke, I just used chicken. I would love to get my hands on some veal - and NO, I don't care that its baby cow -because it tastes good. Hate if you will. I think the only thing I wouldn't eat would be a puppy. I told Louie he'd better watch it if things go all Jericho.
