OK, don't tell me nothing is going on.

Have you all seen the Day after Tomorrow? Ya know, ice breaks off, hurricanes and tornadoes and tsunamis run amuck. End of the world etc? Well here ya go people. Just a few days ago there was a huge piece of ice which broke off that was bigger than California, a few months ago I posted an article about that Dinosaur Shark they found and now here's a giant squid they actually caught on February 22 of this year:

I got the photo from and the link is in the photo so you can go to the site and read the article. It weighs over 900 lbs and was 33 feet long! (Calamari for a year lol)

All of the photos here have links to the article that I got them from. They should open in a new window when you click on them. I started doing this post and got carried away lol.

This one I got from Cryptomundo, which I guess is kinda iffy but still worth a look see. I actually then found it at Underwater Times as well. It's from December 22, 2006:

Found in Florida:

ALSO found in Florida:

This is the photo of the link I had posted here a couple of months ago. You can still get the video of this shark too although it died only hours after it was captured and put on display.

And here's another odd "Living Fossil":

And hey, how's this for evolution?

Now I know that (mostly) these things have existed, it's no surprise but usually all of these "critters" which have begun mysteriously poppping up all over are extremely subterranean. They usually lie miles below in the oceans, all of a sudden POOF... hello, look at me. Am I the only one that finds this odd? Ominous, forboding, forshadowing at it's finest?

Think I am going to cut my losses

I just cannot seem to get digitally motivated today. My head is all over the place and I have a ton of stuff that needs to be done and finished up here in the house. I am going to close my programs and just do what I need to do here. And maybe take over the tv during the day for once too. I just told Alex he is going to get usurped lol. I just can't focus and I hate trying to force it. I have a great new kit from Carla Ware that I need to use for a couple of layouts but I need to find and scan the photos for it. So it will be a sort of down day for me, for the rest of the day. Oh and I need to get my stew cooking, still trying to defrost the meat. I am in the mood for some beef stew with dumplings! Yummy! Have a good day all!

This weekend....

was kinda wierd lol. Even for me. I don't know how anything can feel so long and so short at the same time? Like I said, wierd lol. I got a bunch done on my new baseball kit but then wasn't happy with some of it so I dumped those parts. LOL. I was busy trying to upload to our new gallery at HODS and keep up on my Sketch Challenge over at DSC. Then I didn't feel like doing anything so I kinda just putzed around on the internet half of the weekend. Yesterday though I did something that made Alex happy. He feels that I never get out of the house (which is true) so yesterday, after my plant got knocked over with a simple gust of wind and spilled dirt all over, we took a jaunt over to Home Depot and got some potting soil and a few new little plants. One marigold (they are great for keeping ants and such away) and three other flowers (I can't remember the names lol will take pics later) and also one sweet basil and cherry tomato plant. When we had our house my basil would grow 4 feet high, no lie. I love fresh basil, not only does it taste good but it smells so wonderful.

Then we went over to Michaels and I hit clearance (my favorite word lol) I managed to get a wooden purse, two letter T's (also wood) a purple metallic marker and some other goodies for $9. Not bad. I am going to turn that little purse into a Pencil holder, hopefully tonight.

I also did a few more layouts, one with my upcoming baseball kit.

I talked to my Popi who was out fishing and had gotten a 5lb bass only minutes before I called him lol. He was happy. Johnathan "dismantled" his stereo (already broken) and the vcr (also already broken) He made a gallery to show us how each part worked, it was a hands on, interactive display lol.

The dryer is still broken so there are still clothes hanging up all around our house. UGH what a pita, but at least my washer still works (watch now I just jinxed it lol)

Oh well, off to the store and to finish up my kit so I can get it out to all of you ;)

Have a great day!
