More Donkeys

This photo was in the BBC this morning. Isn't it one of the funniest things you've ever seen?

Speaking of donkeys, often we drive by a field in LaFayette that has several and I usually comment about the little burritos (the Spanish for little donkey). But the other day I was trying to tell Jeff something about the donkeys and for the life of me I could not remember the English word for donkey! So I just spit out the word burrito really quick and he thought I was talking about the food. Kind of like the time I told him to look at that doughnut in the road and he was looking for a small pastry.

On to serious news, I actually slept for four hours straight last night, TWICE, with out having to get up for a potty break. It was amazing!

And we went to a Braves game last night, but the Marlins beat them (sad, since the Marlins are also a crummy team). The game was over in less than two hours. But, we got the tickets free when we bought our new toilets (ironic, huh? Free tickets for buying toilets and the team is basically in the toilet this yea) at Home Depot. Well, really the tickets were for spending $100 or more at the store, not because the items we bought were toilets.

So, besides my new (first!) stretch marks:-( There's nothing else new here. Don't know what made me thing I might dodge the bullet on that one.

I got this cactus as a door prize at a faculty meeting a couple of years ago. It had fake flowers glued to it (way to go Wal-Mart!). I knocked it over and the fake flowers exploded so we pulled them off.

When we moved in to this house at the end of May, we repotted the cactus and since then it has grown pretty big. We were going to repot it again this week when we noticed these little nodes on the top. This morning, this is what I went out to:
