the motivation to blog is low...

when it feels like nobody is reading your blog. hehe. i have to keep reminding myself that i started up this thing for myself (as sort of a creative outlet and a place to archive art and design products) rather than to pander for attention. it's also nice b/c i can comment on peoples' blogs now, whereas before, my username directed folks to a super old 2002 travel blog. yes, i've had this sucker before the blog revolution.

anyway, i've noticed that so many design bloggers are really into cats. i'm a dog person all the way; cats kinda scare me, cat ladies scare me more. when one of my anti-dating friends told me that she's thinking of getting a cat or two, i sincerely worried about her. here's a picture of my doggie- precious (my sister named him when she was young). i lurve him. from a completely subjectively objective opinion, i will say that he has the cutest, most affable personality in the world (and a cute face to boot). kind of a messy eater, but that adds to the charm.

I also enjoy reading your site but I have to admit I do try to stay somewhat anonymous because every time I visit, I do feel a rise in estrogen.

Hi Margaret -

I'm reading your blog :) And I actually am here because you posted a comment on my blog - www.hostessblog.com - a couple weeks ago and mentioned the fantastic bridal shower that your friends threw for you last year. I checked out the shower photos on your wedding pictures link and you were right - it was fantastic! If you're up for it, I'd love to do a feature on your bridal shower for the "real life parties" section of a new website I'm launching. If you're interested, please send your contact info to me so I can give you more details. My email address is "jennifer@hwtm.com". Thanks!

ha! i know what you mean...no one reads mine either...I have two loyal fans (my mom-in-law and my dear friend Kristin), but that's it!

Oh well, right?! It's just good to put stuff out there anyway...

good luck with your blog!

Just found your blog through a comment you posted on Decor8. 2 things. 1)I was a total dog person until I moved in with someone who begged me to get a cat. As I type this to you she (the cat) is laying in my lap sleeping and I couldn't feel more like a cat person!

Also, I know what you mean about wanting attention...it's hard to remember why you're blogging! We kind of have similar blogs I think, I'll read yours if you read mine :)

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

You must have seen Ranbir Kapoor’s wonderful chemistry with Katrina Kaif in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani.

Katrina is really exited to romance Ranbir, obviously in reel life. Katrina is really eager to be a part of Ashtvinayak’s next film that casts Ranbir.

However she is well known to this fact that her looks as well as accent can not relate
