Recent treats:

     Plenty of goodies at work this week: first Shelley found two forgotten boxes of Girl Scout cookies when she was organizing her space, then she brought in raisin bran muffins on Friday. Sure getting spoiled around here!

     To celebrate payday Friday, Shelley, Kathy, and I went to check out a new lunch venue: the Barrio Tequila Bar a few blocks from where we work. Neat decor, and good food too; the potato-chorizo taco with avocado salsa I got was delicious! I'm sure we'll be back.

     Friday evening was my last time checking up on Teabag before the Towners come back Sunday. He was definitely wanting my attention more this time, poor guy, and the toys I brought along (or one of them) were more of a hit than the toys I tried Wednesday. Anyway, for family or the simply curious, here's a shot of him.

     Last but not least, I'm very grateful for a cool, cloudy Friday, after it reaching 80 F/27 C on Thursday, and due to hit 90 F/32 C by Sunday. IT IS NOT JULY AROUND HERE YET! (*snarl*) So thank God for one day of reprieve, and I'm also thanking God for air conditioning and sleeping pills!

My goodness, that's quite a snarl! But kind of cute, in a way.

Why on earth is Teabag called that? I would have thought that his appearance might be the source of his name, but nothing I can see gives me a clue. His markings are quite distinctive, however. I'm glad he has you there to keep him company.

I'm sorry to hear about the hot weather too. I do hope that the early heat may mean that it is early to pass too.

Yes, I'm hoping I don't have cause to use the avatar version very often. ;)

I have no idea how Teabag got that name, though he usually gets called 'Teabuddy' these days. I was trying to figure it out the first time I saw him too.

Here's hoping! *crosses fingers*

I'm not sure what you're driving at, dear brother. 'Normal' weather? Then I'd much rather stay here. St Paul vs Sacramento in spring of 2010 has been an interesting varient, that's for sure. Wish I could have stayed for a month!

LOL -- we'll look forward to seeing you! ;)

Though finding extra girl-scout cookies in St.Paul definitely adds some points there... ;) I completely missed them this year somehow!

Shelley figured she was hiding them from her husband, since any cookies she brings home disappear in short order!

Pity my raise wasn't quite big enough to do just that! ;) (and it doesn't come with extra vacation days)

Cute shot of Teabag. Remember Aaron named him so I do not think
there has to be an explanation. He probably just like it.

What kind of cookies were they?

The weather here has been UNBELIEVABLE wonderfully cool.

Aaron just left a message on my cell phone, and even HE calls him 'Teabuddy' now! Teabag didn't appreciate being in Aaron's truck going home and was hollering. ;)

They were the peanut butter Di-Si-Dos ones, and the Thank you Berry Munch ones. Not my favorite kinds, but I still ate too many!

Do the locals think it's the new Ice Age and the End of the World yet? Someone on the Windstone Forum who lives in Idaho was getting a bit of snow this morning.

What a sweetie pie! My auntie's kitty looked just like that, sans tail. Black and white are my favourite colours on cats. :)

Definitely know what you mean about the heat! It's not too bad in Vancouver right now, but I think I am going to have to start sleepig on the hardwood living floor soon.

I make an amazing amount of typos on your journal.

I'm pretty sure I do a bit of 'sleepig' in my personal journal!

Black and white cats certainly are striking. =)

Ugh, after last night only getting DOWN to 74 F/23 C, I think I need to move to the floor pretty soon here. =P
