i went to the zoo today and i saw somw really cute baby tamarinds. they were born on 9.9 and they are twins (the info sign said the mom always has twins and the dad carries them on his back for the first 3 months of thier lives and then they are on thier own) the were like 2 inches long soo cute. another cool thing was the lemurs were getting treats when we went by them and they love grapes. also got to see the lion who was roaring like crazy and the camels who were very very stinky. somehow the tiger evaded us but we did get to see a volunteer sleeping at the drink stand by the tiger cage. the best part of the zoo is it is FREE - well a donation. the second best part is they need volunteers. so i am going to contact them and maybe spend some of my free time helping at the zoo. they also need ink cartridges that they recycle and get $$ for the zoo. so if you have any send them my way. thanks!

so today i had a lot of work to do so i headed over to big daves and got to hang out with jesse the cute dog while i worked. he is very needy and i finally decided to take him outside because i couldn't stand his whining for one more minute. well jesse doesnt like the hose there is a spray nozzle on it and it sprays in a straight stream and he goes crazy trying to attack the water. so we both got wet and i think jesse had a good time. he also got very muddy from rolling around in the dirt wet and then i had to spray him off and dry him off and take him inside. crazy dog.

i watched the movie Carolina with Julia Stiles last night it was really cute. it made me think about my grandma and that i want to ask my dad to tell me all of her stories again because i dont know that much about her. what i do know is that i have the same moles on my chin that my grandma had and that she was a model when she was young and that she dies of alzheimers and i remember she smelled like cigarettes and wrigleys green gum. i am going to find out more for sure.

the clouds are taken from going over the bridge into the philly airport the others are from wildwood. our new friends alex & joanna from poland and amanduh of course from ca. i didnt get any pictures of winning my new fish. david won me 2 beta fishes by throwing a ping pong ball into a fish bowl they are still alive but remain nameless. david is probably going to name his reemus dude. but i dont know what i want to name mine. i will post pictures and then maybe my friends can help me. we are going to go shopping in atlantic city tomorrow tonight we have a fun time planned for dollar general and going over to visit davids mom and then dad or vice versa.

so today i was reading on msn about what is going on in New Orleans and it makes me sad. i dont have tv so i sit here and read about what is happening and today i have had a hard time focusing trying to see what updates have been posted to msn. so i am thankful for my connection with the outside world through the internet but it doesnt make it any easier to see the images and read the stories.
