Down with the tyrnanny of short posts! I now resolve to write longer ones! Does not the expression run, the more the merrier?


So, you, my dear readers, are going to be bombarded by this long, rambly post.


Yesterday, I was babysitting my little brother Milo while Ava and Mom were at soccer practice. Milo was quiet and I used the opportunity to catch up on some school work. However, after twenty minutes, I decide that quiet was just a little too quiet for my normally high volume little bro. Whenever he is silent, he is usually working some mischief. So, I walked around the house until I found him in his bedroom.


My brother was perusing a Cheaper than Dirt magazine. The pages were clutched tightly in his hands, and his brow was scrunched in concentration. He viewed the pages filled with weapons and ammunition with delight. Accckkk! He is two!


Now where could he possibly be getting those violent tendencies from? Say I as I quickly hide my seven airsoft guns where no one can see them.


Erg. I forgot my password for playlist.com. So now, I can't really edit my playlist. And I forgot which email I used for the playlist account. That's just another example of my brilliance and stunning intelligence.


Ya know somthin' awesome? As I, scholastic and devoted, sat rigorously studying biology, I just happened to glance out the window-


Okay, maybe that's not exactly what happened. While I was supposed to be wading my way through random information about organelles and ribosomes, I stared out the window for several minutes, pondering the plot line of my novel.

Movement caught my eye, drawing it to the tawny form of a lithe and graceful bobcat.

How beautiful! I thought immediately, and then, Ack!!! The chickens!

With all the grace of a buffaloe on ice skates, I dashed outside to chase it away, only to see its tail disappear behind our yew bush. Whew! You see, our chickens are free range, and I did not want one to fall prey to a predator, however beautiful. But I love bobcats.
Anyway, here is a picture of me displaying all the grace of a buffaloe on ice skates. Or perhaps the co-ordination of a gnat in a gorilla suit. hmmm... let's see how many terrible analogies I can come up with...


Or perhaps not. Isn't this a jolly picture? Kei from Photos By Keilah took it. Just for my benefit, I'll have you know that I was somersaulting down the hill, not falling down it. =D

A bobcat?! I think I would freak out (raccoons are scary enough for me)! That's so cool you have chickens! We have 3, at the moment.

hahaha, loved the post! ribosomes and organelles..gr...you wouldn't by any chance happen to be doing Apologia Biology [by Wile and Durnell, I believe]? Because that's what I'm doing this year along with a whole bunch of peeps...

I didn't know you had bobcats around there! How cool.

AAAAAS YOUUUUUUUUUU WISHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Ah yes. Delightful Biology....
Forget not ADT, Bethany, and drum into your head that it stands for Adenosine Triphosphate...

Adenosine Triphosphate......Adenosine Triphosphate...Adenosine Triphosphate...

What does ADT stand for again?
