Quite often Santa and I go out in the middle of the night for a drive, which usually, is quite a fun alternative to sitting on your rear and/or sleeping. While we of course could go driving around in circles around some overly rich and stuck-up neighborhoods, we find it a ton more fun to go to places which are more... creepy if you want to call them that. Now, lets see, what's the creepiest place we could go around here... hmm... Oh, how about the city with one of the highest crime rates in all of United States, with half of it laying in ruins, being burned down, run down, drugged up to hell or a combination of all of those.

Well, where to start? As I'm sure a lot of you have noticed, I somehow managed to die sometime around the middle of last October. Reason? Simply that I had next to no time. Between university, working freelance, the animal rescue, and a personal life, not really too much time left. Then to try to catch up on all the posting, I asked my dear Santa to help me out by posting once in a while too, small problem with that however, she is kind of a part of all parts of my life, the school, the work, the rescue, and well, obviously the personal.
Also, completely off topic, but fun fact for you. Each and every single one of you has a photo studio for small animals in your home, its called the bathtub. As long as you have good lighting in your bathroom, you can take some pretty decent looking shots.
By now I missed probably a good 100 posts if not more. Or rather let me rephrase that, I failed to click publish on a 100some posts. The content is all there for all those days, just not exactly quite 'web ready'. Over the next little while, hopefully under a month, I'll get around to putting all of those posts up while of course trying to get back to posting every single day as I had before. Honestly do quite miss doing all of this, really did have a great time posting photos, meeting new people, interacting with other bloggers and so on... Hoping to go back to doing it on a regular basis again.
Oh, by the way, for last week or so, been making tasty omelets. I'm sure such things have been made before, but it was a first for me and randomly came up with it even without any recipe. Take a couple of eggs, break them in a bowl, add as much milk as there is white from the eggs, throw in a couple tablespoons of sugar (though I'm sure any sweetener would work fine), and mix all of that.
Mix it preferably in something that can spin very very fast, i.e. a blender, so everything gets very evenly mixed and all the milk gets fluffed up to hell, then while the mixture is still fluffy, pour it on an already hot frying pan. While its being made, stand there and mix it constantly with chopsticks or the like - basically anything that is gonna break it up into little clumps and won't let it stick together too much. When it gets a bit more dry, its ready to eat.
If anyone tries this, do let me know how it turns out, am curious...

Just wanted to say, hope you all have a great Thanksgiving this year, and I would like this opportunity to say thanks to all for sticking with me for so long and hopefully for much longer to come. ^_^; Enjoy your turkeys or whatever you eat, I think I'll just have some ice cream or something along those lines.

As much as I love all breeds of cats, my favorite breed has always been the 'Sphynx'. Not even sure what is it particularly about this breed, but they are just so damn awesome all around. Not only are they alot warmer to the touch then most other cats, but they are a lot more cuddly since they try to rub against anything warm to keep themselves from freezing. If between Santa and I we didn't already have 3 cats, I would just so damn love to get a Sphynx (or maybe even a couple of them).
Oh and by the way, the Sphynx on my back in the photo above belongs to one of the vets at a local animal clinic and is always just roaming throughout the office. What about you guys? Any of you here cat lovers? And if so, how many feline friends do you have and what breeds are they?

It really is true what they say, the way to a person's heart is though their mouth. Here's a few fun facts for you guys... Fact number one, I do quite love cooking. Then again chances are many of you already knew that one. Now, fact number two, if you want to impress your partner's parents, make them dinner, the mother figure especially will be most impressed and will instantly love you and approve of you completely.
Above, scrambled eggs, baked meat, toasted bread, some ketchup-ish stuff in the middle, altogether took maybe half an hour to prepare. Oh and how about I add just one more fun fact... Fun fact number three, presentation is everything. That is to say you can make the most delicious thing in the world, but if you just throw it on a plate and it looks like a pile of crap then it won't be appetizing at all, but on the other hand if it looks good, then even if its not perfect in terms of taste, it'll still be appreciated tons more.
What about you guys and girls? Any of you like cooking and/or have ever cooked for your significant other's parents? What were the results in your case?

Seems like with the exception of me visiting once every few days to delete thousands of pieces of spam, I haven't really been around these parts much. So just a quick post before I go to sleep to update you all on my status. Have been very very busy over the last few months, hence me not really having time for any of this. Between school, animal rescue,
love wuv, work, more work, sleep, eating, sleeping, eating and something or other else, well, quite literally I came home anywhere, crashed on any random bed and fell asleep. Also, somewhat off topic, but do try taking a 3-4 hour long shower sometime - quite wonderful, right up until the moment where your hands start turning into old-people hands and such.
I think over the next few days I'm going to find some time to finish publishing the last few Japan posts which have been sitting in queue here for months now, and then have to pull 40-50 other posts outta my
ass brain (the one in the head (the one on my shoulders)) to fill to empty days.
Finally, if anyone at all cares, the photo above, is of my new kitteh. Named him Aeon. Will make a post about him in a few days with the full story. A bit of a shame about the name though... I mean chances are he'll be around for another 20 years and well, I kinda wanted to name a child of mine Aeon so yeah, that name is kinda taken now... Anyone have any other awesome sounding names for kids? - and to answer any questions, no, no kids are coming any time soon, I just like to plan ahead. ^_^

To fill the day, here's just a few random photos of tunnels going though mountains as I was traveling from Nagoya to the the northern (or western?) coast of Japan. And now off to sleep.

I'm tired, sleepy, can't think of any good captions for the photos, so excuse the lack of text in this post and sorry if I'm rambling. If you have any questions about anything, or find where I screwed up, if anywhere, let me know in the comments.
