For the child-type mother's on my f-list, I hope you had wonderful day being pampered and spoiled. To my own dear mommy, love you, miss you, won't say I wish you were here because you WERE back in February and I get the feeling you don't like China as much as I do. :D  Wish I was THERE, instead, but I will see you in June.

For the mother's of their precious little furkids/petkids - be they on wings, 4 legs, no legs, what have you - happy mother's day to you too! As one of you, I know our furry and fuzzy children help keep us sane and give us just as much love as any child (with the added benefit of not having to set aside a college fund). I hope you got lots of snuzzles today!  I know I did.



To the non-mother's on the old f-list, have a happy unmother's day - or just a plain old Happy Sunday.

I got my Starscreams! I have been wanting these toys for over a year now and I finally have them in my grubby little paws!

And good grief, toy makers want you to be extra, super-specially sure you want to take them out of the packaging. Every piece of plastic rope tying down every single limb, dozens of pieces of tape securing the box and then securing each of the ties, plus little plastic bits of webbing holding the toy within - it's like the box is giving you the chance to back off. "Do you really want to open this? Are you sure? It's not too late you know - you're only a quarter of the way through..."

I scream, you scream, we all scream, for Starscream! )


In other news, vet visit today was good. I am proud to say I spent almost $300 CAD (2000RMB) to be told Ruthie is disgustingly healthy. She got her x-rays done (two plates, no sedation) and her hip bone has some more smoothness to it - like it's improving somewhat instead of getting worse. ^^ This is good. She also got her yearly vaccinations, a general checkup (eyes, teeth, gums, anal glands, heart/pulse, tummy manip etc), a bath and a haircut (she's got pink bows!! I asked for RED!!) , and got her teeth brushed. I also picked up a water fountain water dish for her, some cesar dog packets to mix with her food, two Revolution doses (this month and next), a new dog bowl, some puppy treats, some vitamiin supplements and a bottle of tear-stain removal for her eyes. Not a bad haul for just under $300. And that's it for the next six months, hopefully.

Lastly, I have video of my kids up on facebook, as well as two vids from Hangzhou  - one of the myna birds saying, 'Nihao" and another short video showing baby froggies at the tea farm - baby frogs about the size of a friggin' DIME. TINY. Must view. I don't know how to link to each video. Anyone have any pointers? Thank you LJ user 'thetech' for the help!

Dude, apparently two of my fics placed in the rankings this year. :D

Mikey the Mystic Master - Tied for 3rd place in the category 'Best Michaelangelo Scene'
Follow the Leader - 3rd place for 'Best Happy Ending'

Special thanks and shout-outs for those who voted. ^^ Hell, thanks to whoever nominated my stuff. ^^ It's been a while since I've paid the SS forums a visit, so this was a pleasant surprise. ^^  Especially since Follow the Leader was posted rather quickly - it desperately needs a thorough combing over via a beta (so many ERRORS, the SHAME of it).

I just finished posting a TON of Hangzhou pics on facebook and on photobucket (they all needed editing and resizing which took a good 3 hours) so expect a writeup with an accompanying pic-post to show up here within the next few days. I was experimenting with my camera and a lot of the pics, especially the closeups, came out really nice IMHO. The trip was great except for a violent bout of sickness Friday night (which led to me missing the site where they filmed 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and dinner, and I was pickpocketed on Saturday so I lost my freaking cell phone. I bought a new one today and I have to learn how to use the damn thing all over again.

Ruthie has a vet visit at 9AM (bi-annual x-rays and annual vaccination time) plus a trip to the groomers directly afterwards, and it takes almost an hour to get out there. Bedtime for Bongo.

(PS yay for x-posting!! yes, I am now on dreamwidth under stormy1x2!)
