    Went to see my new niece today. What a little cutie. [face_love]

    Also went to Bath&Body and splurged on myself. Though frugally. Tehy had a buy one, get one free on all body sprays and on their new line MIdnight Amythest it was buy one get one 1/2 off

    Picked up a couple sprays and a body creme and shower gel and then had 20% off coupon for the entire purchase. I love sales and smelling nice.

    Worked a pm shift Thur till 11pm, going in yesterday am and working 14 hours then back to work this morning at 6 this morning.

    More suited for the Cry More thread, but I've achieved my goal for the evening. A hot shower, sushi for dinner and a large mojito for now.

    Very mellow. :) :)

    I got to work 35 minutes early this morning.


    Though, that was 25 minutes later than I intended on getting here. :p

    I still can't register online for Japanese class, but I wrote an e-mail and just showing up is fine and will get me in officially and all that.

    I'm learning Japanese this semester [face_dancing]

    I had a total Seinfeld moment this morning when a co-worker felt the arm of my velvet coat. I told him it was Gore-Tex.

    He didn't get it. :p

    Thank jeebus for WiFi.

    I blew another tire out (3rd in less than a year!), and I've been stuck at Les Schwab for an hour now. And my car is still parked out front. :(

    Yesterday (Friday, 10th) I took a trip to Southampton to see the Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2 moored up for the day and then watch them leave from near the mouth of Southampton water. I took some images.

    The QM2 spent the day moored like so.


    [image=http://www.bluealert.co.uk/images/photos/everton/cunard3.jpg]
    With the QE2 a little way infront of her. You can see both in this picture.

    After a harbour tour, I went down to the mouth of Southampton water to a place where all the ships coming in and out of Southampton pass. Another, pretty awful looking ship in port the same day was P&O's Ventura. All three were due to leave at the same time. The Ventura got to me first. It's hideous.


    [image=http://www.bluealert.co.uk/images/photos/everton/cunard1.jpg]
    Then the Cunard liners approached. Hurrah! As the QE2 approached, the QM2 sounded her horn three times, and then the QE2 replied in kind. :D


    [image=http://www.bluealert.co.uk/images/photos/everton/cunard2.jpg][image=http://www.bluealert.co.uk/images/photos/everton/cunard4.jpg]
    The draw today was the QE2, as she's being retired to Dubai in November. To become a floating hotel (!). These two show her lit rather wonderfully as she passed by. Even though the Sun was very low by the time she came past us, we were fortunate to have a low horizon and little cloud. This meant the sunlight hit her for as long as possible.



    [image=http://www.bluealert.co.uk/images/photos/everton/cunard5.jpg][image=http://www.bluealert.co.uk/images/photos/everton/cunard6.jpg]
    Then the QM2 followed suit. Unfortunately the Sun had gone by then, so she doesn't look quite as lovely... but I'm sure you'll agree she does still look lovely. :D

    Finally, as darkness began to fall, me and the two ships as they angle out through the deep channel towards the Isle of Wight.

    I have a baby hedgehog. She is a girl and she looks like this:

    [image=http://img126.imageshack.us/img126/3443/cinnacotbabyrt8.jpg]

    Hedgehogs are often shy and standoffish at first, but today she decided to climb up my arm and try to stick her nose in my nose, and then she tried making a nest out of my hair. She dozed on my chest for a minute, and after seeing her relax, I started feeling better for the first time since Indiana died.

    She doesn't really have a name yet . . . I've tried out several, but none seem right, or else they're unweildy. I'm willing to take suggestions, provided it's understood that I may ignore them completely. :p
