Not so stoked

This is probably the first new years eve where I don't care what I'm doing or not doing. I know what I wish I was doing, and since I'm not doing it, I'm kinda bummed out.

12hrs of Bounty Hunt'in on Xmas Eve

If I could ask for anything for Xmas eve, it would be that the networks play something on TV for the rest of us that are sick of Xmas music, Xmas tv shows, and Xmas all together. A & E heard my prayer, and presented me with 12hrs of my favourite show, Dog the Bounty Hunter. After my own personal "bounty hunt" with an wallet full of $10 coupons at a certain organic food store that shall remain nameless, I parked myself infront of the TV with the chocolatly peacan fruites of my labour.

I love Dog's wife on the show, Beth. She's definetly my favourite "character". Unlike me, she embraces her womanly attributes, and I love her toughness and dedication to her family.

My left eye.

I've got allergies. And once in a while I'll wake up in the middle of the night (why is it always in the middle of the night?!) with a swollen facial feature. Today's freaky facial feature is my left eye. Swollen. Shut. I look like I got into a really cool fight. Anyhow, looking in the mirror makes me sad. so I prefer to look at someone who doesn't look like a fight club reject.

Here are some Marilyn photos I really like, for sale online.

About the photo:
This rare one of a kind candid photograph was taken in the bleachers, while the director Joshua Logan, Marilyn & Milton were reviewing the site for the rodeo sequences in the film "Bus Stop". This original was a 35mm kodachrome, which was recently found in the bottom of a file cabinet and has never been seen until this time.
About the photo:
This image from the 'Ballerina' series, one of Milton & Marilyn's most recognized collaborations was taken in 1954 at Milton's New York City studio. Clothing designer, Ann Klein, sent various outfits to Milton's studio for Marilyn to wear, however all the outfits were 2 sizes too small. All of the poses in this sitting amusingly deal with Marilyn's problem of holding up the ill-fitting toule and satin dress. The most recognized image from this sitting was chosen as one of Time/Life's 3 most popular images of the 20th Century along with Albert Einstein & Winston Churchill.

Ed bought this photo. It's hanging in his bedroom.

About this photo:
A rare candid that Milton did of Marilyn in Los Angeles in 1954. This image shows her posing in front of her new caddy that was given to her by Jack Benny for appearing on his television show.

About this photo:
This image of Marilyn, admiring a primitive statue, was taken at producer Joseph Schenck's villa in October 1953, a month after Milton and Marilyn's first sitting.

Bird photo of the day

He loves to sit on my monitor and talk to me. He speaks in English but it's not too clear what he's saying. He'll get it right one day. He just needs more practice.

Paid for blue, but got green.

This is my new "ish" budgie. I've had him for a year. The above photo was taken when he first came home. He was a baby and the cutest thing around. He let me touch him, rub his belly. The below photo was taken recently - a year later. He's got a receding hair line, his feathers changed from blue to green, he begs for table food by flying into my plate or landing on my fork, and has developed a bit of an attitude, & he bites. But he's curious about everything, he talks, he's playful and we love him!

He also needs a name. I'll have to come up with something soon, or he's going to think his name is "Did you poo on me?" Suggestions?
