The tale of a modern woman who turned back time and reclaimed her right to be domesticated

Where have I been? Well, let me tell you! April 20, 2008

Okay, so I have been MIA for a while now. A month. I am so sorry 😦 I kept meaning to update you, dear blog, but I was always busy or too lazy to take pics of my progress-and I do hate to post without pics.
So for weeks now I have been working on some freelance work I picked up, so I have been putting in long long hours. It was totally worth it, though. I got to work on a Tori Amos comic book, and from what I saw, it’s going to be great! I can’t wait till it comes out.(My job on this was not a glamorous one, dear blog, but I was honored nonetheless).
And along with that, I have also been dreadfully sick lately. Totally my own fault. I took a medication I really shouldn’t have and it had some very nasty side effects. I was in the bathroom being sick on either end for days and days and even now, days and days later, I have to be EXTREMELY careful what I eat or I will get sick again. I don’t know how long until it’s completely out of my system, but for now I have to wait and see.
So all this has left me with very little knitting done-which is horrible 😦
But on a plus note-I’m learning how to spin my own yarn! Weeeeee! I suck horribly at it right now, but practice makes perfect!
And now, for some photos, shall we? Yesterday, my boy and I and my best friend went to the zoo!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!! We were supposed to rendezvous with his brother and his girlfriend and their family, but we ended up there early and so started off without them. The zoo is such a weird place-for the most part it’s exciting and interesting and there’s a whole pack of pugs running around and you can go into some of the pens with some llamas and things, but on the other hand it’s kind of depressing to see the exotic animals just laying around in small pens 😦 I will say one thing-I think the Oaklawn Farm Zoo’s animals are better off than others I have seen.
Anyways, on to the pictures!!!!!! I took soooo many, but I will try not to put too many up here πŸ˜› ha ha ha ha ha

My boy petting a llama or something close to it

The lemur on the left is trying to steal food from the one on the right-what a jerk!

Lisa getting mauled by pugs!

A raccoon!!!!

Lisa and a llama-there were soooo many yarn producing animals there….

This camel is literally eating it’s own shit. Too gross!!!

The Telus monkeys!!!!!

Lisa wants to steal that goat!

And I wanted to steal this sheep! He looks all soft but surly!!!

Chad didn’t have any food for this guy and he got PISSED!

These birds were on the ceiling and we almost didn’t notice them! Lucky they didn’t poop on us!

This cat was also wandering around, looking for love. Chad petted him for quite a while πŸ˜› This is Lisa taking a pic of them together πŸ™‚
