Dear Bloggers:

Our pet human has contracted a unique strand of Lycanthropy that transforms her from human to bitch without the bone popping furry consequesces.  She foolishly keeps refering to it as a cold, but we know better.  She reeks of aspirin and citrus.

Hide the biscuits!

The man servant has been hiding out in the basement, undoubtedly too frightened to show his head. 

We have demanded that she relinquish command of this post to us until the symptoms subside and have sent her blog hopping.  If you see her, please be kind.  She's not contagious.  And pretty soon she'll be back to her delightfully stinky self, just how we like her.

Also, don't be angry if your canine counterpart can't type.  We're smarter than we look, but if you knew the truth, that would put an end to our perfect lives. 


Deedra and Stryker,
Pooch Patrol


Hurray for Mondays and Bloggerly Love!

Good morning space cadets. :)  It's a glorious Monday and four days till the weekend, at least for me.


I thought I would start this day by mentioning the above seal.  I became a campaigner last week and didn't post the seal until today.  Figured this would make it more of a last minute reminder.  So hurry up and join Rachael Harrie at Rach Writes to get to know more fabulous blogs and fantastic writers.

Also, I have received this:


These awards came fromValentina Hepburn over at Letters from Valentina.  Isn't that an great name...like an exotic actress who takes time to stir her pasta while hunky guy fans her with a fan made of feathers.  :) Stop by and say hi to her, Suzy, and Lily.

I guess this means I have to pass these on.

Here are the rules.

Thank and link to the person who nominates you...check.
Share seven random facts about you.
Pass award to 5 new found blogging friends.
Contact and congratulate the awarded Blogeroos.

What the heck can I tell you guys that you don't already know?

1.  I enjoy having spooky nightmares because in them I usually see myself beating up on the villain.

2.  I grew up in Florida but after years of watching sharkweek I'm scared each time I go swimming in the ocean.  Dipping my toes is cool though.  I'm also alergic to crustaceans.

3.  I'd rather be stuck in a petting zoo for hours than at a party.

4.  I like red wine and dark chocolate.

5.  I'm a naturalist...see myself connected to all of nature....that made Avatar the best movie ever.

6.  I love every single type of bread there is, and I don't eat any of them often...they'd be stuck to my ass if I did.  (What, that word is in the Bible.)

7.  I collect angels...so I always wanted to have a sunroom with angels, a pond with a makeshift waterfall, and in the center a pretty bench with a harp.  It's the place I disappear to when I'm meditating.  All things are real in my mind.

Now, passing these babies on to five lucky appreciated bloggers that I have not targetted before but have come around to make my day. 


1. Libby Heily.  She's funny, has one heck of a muse, and I find her writing extremely entertaining.  She also reminds me of one of my nieces.  Go say  hi to Libby.  http://libbyheily.blogspot.com

2. Jeff King.  He's a great writer.  So far his story seems pretty intense.  Like many of us, he'd love to to this stuff for a living.  Go pay him a visit.  http://authorsunion.blogspot.com

3. Jessica.  She's 14, and wow does she have an amazing imagination.  Check out her blog, especially that poem she wrote on Saturday.  http://writeskatedream-jmckendry.blogspot.com

4. Danette.  She's got that wandering mind, dreams of a place at the end of the world.  Hmm, I think we've been dreaming of the same place.  Check her out.  http://conch-to-be.blogspot.com/

5. Prerna.  She writes Paranormal Romance.  Well me too, when I'm not neck deep in Fantasy.  I just met her through the Campaign and would like to know more about her.  Go say hi.  http://prernapickett.blogspot.com

Now that will be all Bloggeroos.  Know that I love you all, but I can't pass on these awards to everybody.  I'd be here for weeks.  Have an awesome day!  ....^-^....


A Little Wednesday Fun

Good morning bloggeroos.

Since I'm still exhausted from Monday, I thought today we could have a little fun in the form of roleplaying.  This game will require you to answer one very simple question and offer some brief eye candy.

Let's say you know you're going to be stranded here.

Not to worry.  I've allowed for a bit of companionship.


You will be stranded with this guy.

Minus the armor.

Woohoo!  Hoot, whistle, hop in place.

Gentlemen, I have spared no expense.

You will be stranded with

this lady.

Dammit, I told them not to use my body in that picture!

Now, boast of your superhuman abilities and sexual prowess all you want.

You will still run out of things to do.

I have allowed you to take one item and only one item as a form of entertainment.

Choose wisely.

There is no electricity on a deserted island.

And you may be there a while.

What one item would you take with you?


Have a good day!


STAR TREK FEST...Stardate 41022.6...Laila's Log.

Laila's Log, Stardate 41022.6.  Per Captain Picard's orders, we set out in a small scout vessel.  Our mission: to search the Gamma Quadrant for Captain Zena Nix.  After hopping through the Bajoran wormhole, we came upon her abandoned ship, her entire crew in a state of cryogenic stasis, waiting for first contact.  And the captain now looked like this....

In order to avoid assimilation we had to divulge all our Star Trek secrets, and, most important, never let go of the pink tribble.

Favorite Star Trek Characters:

#1) Captain James T. Kirk.  (Funny womanizer who doesn't take any guff.)  I have enclosed some fun quotes from a few of the characters.

"Mr. Spock, the women on your planet are logical. That's the only planet in the galaxy that can make that claim." -- Kirk (Elaan of Troyius)

Kirk: Damn it, Bones, you're a doctor. You know that pain and guilt can't be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They're the things we carry with us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose ourselves. I don't want my pain taken away! I need my pain!

#2) Dr. Leonard Mccoy.  (He is good to the last drop, a man of honor,
and he cracks me up.)

  • "I signed aboard this ship to practice medicine, not to have my atoms scattered back and forth across space by this gadget." -- McCoy (Space Seed)
  • "By golly, Jim... I'm beginning to think I can cure a rainy day!" -- McCoy (The Devil in the Dark) 

#3) Spock.  (Everything must be logical, yet his human side is quick to interfere.)

Kirk: Spock, where the hell’s the power you promised?
Spock: One damn minute, Admiral. -Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Live long and prosper.  Well yeah, they're born pregnant.

#4) Captain Jean Luc Picard.  (The man has read everything from Shakespeare to the sticky notes in my purse.)

Make it so Number One.

They made a great couple.

#5) Lieutenant Commander Data.  (He has earned a place in Star Trek history.)

An android who would love to be human and has a chip that gives him human emotions. 
Does anyone remember the name of his cat?

You're skilled in how many ways of pleasing a woman?? :)

Characters who received an honorable metion. (Both from DS9)

1) Jadzia Dax.  (She's beautiful, funny, and I always wanted her spots.  Who cares that there's a worm living inside her filling her with past life memories. She was cool.)

There was no excuse for killing her off.


Odo...Mercury-like guy who turns from liquid to solid and blends in. 
He had the hots form Kyra, and she wouldn't give him the time of day.

BONUS: Best Villains Ever.

The all-knowing Q.

Tell me you don't love to hate him.


Borg Queen

She was cool.

One little tribble
Another little tribble.

Burried in tribbles.

#1 Best Star Trek episode ever:  The Trouble with Tribbles.  This goes hand in had with DS9 remake: Trials and Tribble-ations.  (Fun Tribble Pics Ahead.)

#2 Best Episode: Mirror Mirror.

Kirk, Scotty, and Uhura trade places with their doubles from an alternate universe.

Next Generation has a similar episode that tied for number 2.  All the actors come together in this one.

#3 Best Episode: Friday's Child

The Enterpise becomes involed in a power struggle.  Klingons are involed. 
A newborn baby gets named after Mccoy and Kirk.  Even in the future there exists baby talk.

#4 Best Episode: Return to Tomorrow.

Kirk and Spock allow their bodies to be used by intelligent beings to build themselves bodies. 
Way cool.

#5 Best Episode: Mudd's Women

Wives for sale, and a little pill that makes you pretty.

BONUS EPISODES: This is for hubby who was a sport and helped me search for some of these. 
The City in the Edge of Forever.

Doctor Mccoy goes back in time.  Kirk goes to find him.
I think he likes this one because Joan Collins is in it.

Shore Leave.  We both liked this one.

Imagine a planet where you can live out all your desires just my thinking them up.

Now for favorite movies.  Brought to you by...



A bunch of whale save the Earth.  Kirk and Spock practice colorful metaphors.
Spocks swims in his undies.
And I rewound it ten times just to hear Kirk say "double dumbass on you."


Picard and crew go back in time to stop the borg from assimilating Earth.
This is our first appearance of the Borg Sphere.  Check it out.


The new Star Trek rocks!

Wait, where's my pink tribble?
Where are my tribbles?!

"Just before they went into warp, I beamed the whole kit and kaboodle into their engine room, where they'll be no tribble at all."


We will add your individuality to our own. 
You will become part of our collective.
Resistance is futile.

We have been assimilated.
We are now 2 of 420.

Hold on to your tribble or you might be next.

Hope everyone enjoyed the show.

Have a great Monday!
