Why I love my job

Ya gotta love a place where you can work with a stuffed tiger on your head and only get one or two strange looks.

Cute baby and new hair

Here's my terribly cute little pal Connor. He dropped by the office with his mommy and big sister (my mini-me, who was making him laugh in the second photo.) Oh yeah, and I chopped all my hair off and donated it to Locks of Love. You should too if you have enough! :)

Pretty rocks

More from Wikipedia: The Cullen Hall of Gems & Minerals and Eby Hall of Mineral Science, featuring a large exhibit of over 750 crystallized mineral specimens and rare gemstones. This has always been my favorite part of this museum. And I want this diamond and peridot set because it's my birthstone and my son's together. Not that I would have occasion to wear it. Or the means to insure it. But still.

On safari

From Wikipedia: The Evelyn and Herbert Frensley Hall of African Wildlife is a display of taxidermied animals, including one of only two forest giraffes exhibited in North America. Opening in 1969, the hall allows visitors to explore the seven biomes of the continent of Africa. Over 120 specimens, including 42 species of birds and 28 species of mammals are on display.

Hello, kitty.

Old bones

First is a skeleton of a prehistoric horse. Cool! It's at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. I love that place.

Below is a mammoth (duh), a giant ground sloth (right) and something else in between I didn't catch the ID on.

Approval from On High

Even the cats like the new rugs. Bo was lying down before I got the camera out. Of course.


From the Department of Foreign Company Names That Don't Translate ... I think this one's a bakery. But I just can't eat a Bimbo cake. Sorry.

iPhone camera not bad

Cute pic of Chris's cat, Bo, taken with my iPhone. Not bad image quality for a phone, eh?
