California So far....

I am going to have a lot of fun pictures to post after I get back, but I wanted to write something this morning, and Kitty has them all, and the little darling is still fast asleep. They are all here on her computer, but nipping in and grabbing them seems a bit cheeky to me. So we wait.

Kitty asked me last week why the Birdchick never posted here, and I had to say , umm...Well, we don't talk about BIRDS, and I am sure if we did something on birds her bird radar would kick in and she would be over here like a shot.

I wish I had a bird book and binoculars, as (this being a Tree House and all) there are a LOT of birds and I have no idea what they are. I know there is a hummingbird nest in the front yard, and a really cool orange bird that is not an oriole.

And I can HEAR an amazing number of birds ALL the time. They do not sleep. (Much like LA) they go all night, 1, 2, 3, 4 in the morning, they are up and at it. Then around dawn, they really go wild. I do wonder who it is chirping all night.

(and what they are saying. (Hey! My grandfather x 10 was the third bird from the left in the Hitchcock movie! I am SO in line for a part in the new Dawn of the Birds 4!!!!!! My agent is VERY excited!!! That's the Buzz!)

And the other Birds reply...

(SHUT UP! You're a bird! Buzz is for Bees!)

Anyway, LOTS of Birds out here.

Saw WANTED yesterday and loved it, as did Malena. Not so much anyone else we, and we loved it because it was Angelina in Leather shooting with guns at bad guys. If you want that, you will love it. If you are interested in believable, plot, pace, script and all that non-sense, you might want to wait.

I found the best necklace EVER at the Flea Market (WHY do they call them that??) The lady sold it for a price that was perhaps, a quarter of what it was worth, which made me feel a little bad, but when it comes to vintage amethysts, all's fair in love and war.

The Karaoke last night was loads of fun, like I had never seen before (Ok, so I had never BEEN to one before) LOTS of fine 80's music and I met SO many people, all so nice. Drew, home for a few days with Miss Kitty, did Whiskey in the Jar for me!! And he did some Duran Duran, a little Billy Joel (being as how he is out with him right now, he has had plenty of practice) and a couple of others my brain is not letting me remember) and did them REALLY well!

I have to say tho, (Sorry Drew) the highpoint of the evening was Malena singing "Something to Talk About" for me!!!!! GODS! That girl can SING, and MOVE!!!!!!! I wish she had dressed up a little more, same old boring skin tight jeans, heels and leather corset, but I guess it worked. (Hee-he, yeah it worked ) Especially when you can sing and dance like that. The place went nuts! Bonnie Raitt would have been proud. I sure was.

Today Malena and I are hoping for a little sit on the beach and talk all afternoon, before she takes me, sadly, off to the airport.

For now, I am going to try and figure out the mysteries of actually Making Coffee. It can't be that hard, lots of people do it.

Love and Sunshine,
Lorraine

Summoning Birdchick:
* 1 sleeping Kitty
* a lot of birds
* peanut butter
* bag of birdseed
* a gentle smoothing motion
* video camera rolling
* an open window

No, wait, I think that's how you summon a Frankie Muniz B-movie.

Dan, you have to be careful summoning things...You never know what will come. I have hopes for the Birdchick tho....

Darn it Kitty! Why do you persist in leaving yourself signed in on your computer, there I go posting as YOU again.

Love the avatar tho....

hello everyone,
it is NOt LoLo but Kitty.
just wanted to try Quiche's identity out.
the give away for me always knowing Quiche is posting is that she uses "tho" where I go the distance and actually spell out "though", i know, i know, it takes up valuable time, but I do it in deference to the language of the king.
xoxo i shall miss you FabLo, you identity swiper!

I love birds myself, and when I was seven my very favorite term to describe myself was "ornithologist".

Sounds like you are having a most magnificent time in California! But it must be rather hot, although according to Yoga Gal's Monologues, it's cooled down a little.

Have a nice day Lorraine.

Dan - lol... don't mix those two recipes up... not a good combo.

Let's see... birds... the crows have been getting cheeky lately... and the the swifts and swallows are enjoying the updrafts around me. My LaMie cat loves to chase crows.... whenever she can get close enough... then they chatter at her with terrible language.... almost as bad (but not quite) as the squirrels.

I can't imagine how hot it must be there... we had a hot day yesterday and I swear I almost melted.

Oh man, you gave up on making coffee? Tea is much more complicated than coffee, dude! Have a safe flight home!

Birds are cool, though Dog does not think so when mockingbirds divebomb her. LA birds, like LA people, are almost always schmoozing, you're right.

It's only 71° here at Saltmine U., in LA. A little cold, for my taste.

WHIMSEY! Thats who...
All is well, although I Totally forgot about having a cat! White wonder came to my house to share bath day with Kuda. We just walked in the house, boots (my cat,& unafraid of beastly dogs) just sat there on the stool looking at him. White wonder was also very amazed,nose to nose they were. I couldn't belive it! no one got eaten, it was very casual.
Can't wait for photos!!

Tree Houses and beaches and coffee. Heaven.

Oh my God. Did I really say "you people is so unpredictable"? You must know what I meant. I can hardly believe I said that.

Emily, I don't think the Grammar Police patrol this blog. ;)

 
At 12:29 PM , Blogger EmilyLady said...

I hope not. Either way, I couldn't believe I'd typed that. Oh well. I feel better having corrected myself and affirming it was a mistake. I think I was having a hypoglycemic episode anyway, so I doubt it was entirely my own fault.

Oh, you never know when the Grammar Police are lurking, ready to strike!

 
At 6:48 PM , Blogger EmilyLady said...

IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! I was going to type "this blog is so unpredictable" and then I decided to change it to "you people are so unpredictable" and I just forgot to replace the IS with ARE!

That didn't make sense either, but it was proper grammar! I think. I mean, it was SORT OF proper grammar. And now I am properly shutting up.

I think it's much easier to make good tea than really good coffee. Then again, no coffee I ever drink will be as good as the stuff I had in Italy, which was pretty much this coffee...

I am not going to enter the grammar fray. I will only embarrass myself next time I change my mind about what I was going to say mid-sentence.
