So, Sunday before last, the lovely-and-talented lylythe_strega and I went on a hike in Newport with our Dear Waif on a trail where strange-and-eerie things are said to have happened (bicyclists have reported feelings of being chased and/or followed at night and such).

Because, y'know, we like that sort of thing. The hiking and the strange-and-eerie.

and the hike was quite delightful. Sadly, tho I had the camera, I, being a bit of a bozo, had forgotten to put the batteries back in it. Luckily, Ms. Waif had her phone with her so we got a couple of pics.

Along the way, we spotted a cave off the path and decided to investigate it, and The Lovelies climbed in for a photo-op:

the we noticed a couple of...odd...things. Like a stack of bricks in the back, and a knife on the floor, leading us to conclude that the cup by the entrance probably wasn't trash after all.

and, having seen this movie before, we decided to break with tradition and be the hikers who got back on the path and away from the weird place, rather than being the ones who stick around to investigate further and get killed and eaten by the crazy hermit.

After a bit more tromping through the woods, we finally made it to The Pinnacle, at the end of the trail, which was utterly gorgeous. Previous hikers had made a couple of fire pits and small amphitheatre-like spaces on the edge of the drop-off:

so, we sat for a bit and rested and admired the gorgeous view:

and made vows to definitely return here again.

on the way back, we stopped for wonderful food and drinks at Lil' Red Baron, the excellent Tex Mex restaurant conveniently located on the way, then back to the Casa and up to the paddock for some amazing stargazing. :)

update on myself

So, Tzeenj, what exactly *have* you been doing of late, you ask? Well, the lovely lylythe_strega and I we went to PA to ranger_hotsauce 's b-day party and got to see people expertly playing with things that were on fire. Photos here.

And we and our Dear Waif got to go to Seattle, staying with the ever-lovely-and-talented opheliagonemad , who was the perfect hostess, where we got to explore the city, hit some amazing bars and clubs, eat very well and have a most wonderful time. Photos here.

and, in other news, leaf-peeping season has started!

work is interesting today

Excitement for the day- one of my co-workers just got taken away in an ambulance with chest pains. She’s coherent and calm. We’ll see what happens.  At least this is one of the better places to work when you have a medical emergency. Swarm of nurses descended as soon as it happened.


Ummm..yeah...this was seen as a good idea?

yep, that's right, the Pole Dancer Doll, for little girls everywhere!

Is "hilari-sad" a word?


It’s when you your co-worker asks you for a Tylenol, and you give it to them, and you get an e-mail afterwards saying “thank you, oh, thank you so much! You are one of my best friends ever!”


And you realize that maybe, just maybe, their life is so very, very pathetic that this is actually a sincere response from them to the simple act of giving them a Tylenol…


Thank you, Glenn Beck. 


Thank you for opening my eyes. 


Thank you for making me see the truth.


That the Libertarian Party is not only no longer a viable third party, but not a “third party” at all any more. Is there anything that separates this yahoo from the Neocons? No wonder the NH Libertarians held a funeral for their own party last year...



The International Ostomy Association has a World Ostomy Day photo contest. I find this concept shuddersome…
