Animal of the Day - 5.12.2011

I very rarely post pictures that I didn't take myself, but French bulldogs are always an exception. This is Otto, a French bulldog (via This was sent to me, as is all of my Frenchie fixes, by my awesome sister-in-law.

Also I'd like to take this time to apologize for not updating as much or visiting any of your blogs. It's not intentional. I'm having such massive computer problems it's not even funny. My Macbook is dead and my PC is also dying (I'm posting this from my girlfriend's laptop). I'm also in the process of helping my girlfriend move so things are a bit hectic. So please bear with me while I get things sorted and I will continue to post things and visit your blogs as often as I can.

Oh and my trip to the zoo was good, but unfortunately 90% of the pictures I took turned out crap because of my camera.

brb going to the zoo

Ever since my Macbook Pro died I've been putting off going through my external hard drive to find more sets of pictures to post. It's quite upsetting. Although I can't blame it completely on my procrastination, I have been quite ill. Hopefully things will get better this week. 

I'm sure some of you have already seen this, but I had to share anyway. Reminds me of the movie Jesus Camp.

Animal of the Day - 5.3.2011

This is a Plume moth - thanks goes to for identifying this creature.
I saw this little insect Plume moth on a nearby gate a while back. I've never seen this type of insect a Plume moth before so I decided I should get my camera and take pictures of it. ___ points awarded to anyone who figures out what this is (because I'm hurting too much and too tired to take time to find out myself). 

My Macbook Pro also stopped working recently. Unfortunately I hadn't backed it up in a very, very long time. So a large majority of my pictures, music, documents, etc will be forever gone. Not too happy about that as I'm having to do everything on my crappy PC now. Plus it just sucks that my wonderful little Macbook Pro is dead.

Macbook Pro Update: After trying every solution I could find online (including taking my it apart and cleaning/dusting every moving part and making sure everything was firmly attached) I decided to try the oldest, and usually most successful, fix - hitting it. I gave it a good hard whack on the outside of the case where the hard drive is located, pressed the power button, and voila - it successfully booted up. I'm now in the process of backing everything up (only 15 minutes left). Once the backup is complete I will then taunt it.

Update #2:  No luck :(
