6:46 am The cat goes off because he wants his breakfast RIGHT NOW!
6:47-6:59 am Attempt to decide what to wear to work although it is an exercise in futility due to the fact that I am over 4 months preggers now and have about 6 things that I can wear to work. Come next week, my "fat girl" jeans that lurk in the back of every woman's closet will no longer fit bringing the number to 5.
7:00 am Watch the news on Good Morning America.
7:10 am Watch the local weather.
7:15 am Get up, shuffle in to bathroom to pee, wash my face, put in my contacts, pee again.
7:30 am Pull jeans out of dryer that I washed last night because they are what I'll be living in for the next week. See above.
7:35 am Shave legs which is becoming a challenge because when I bend over I can't breathe so well even this early in the game.
7:48 am Pee. Again.
7:50 am Put on make up.
7:55 am Fix hair.
8:04 am Pee.
8:05 am Eat breakfast. A lovely bowl of Fruity Cheerios. Good for me and baby.
8:15 am Give milk dregs from cereal bowl to cat.
8:16 am Pee.
8:18 am Brush teeth.
8:20 am Leave for work.
8:30 am Get to work.
8:31 am Pee.
The next five and a half hours are filled with Museum type things interspersed with a trip to the bathroom to pee every 30 minutes or so.

|You Are 48% Cynical|
Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.
I would have thought, however, that I would be even more cynical than just 48%. Maybe I'm too much of a romantic. I'll have to check on that.

In case you want the lyrics.......
I been working so hard
Keep punching my card
Eight hours, for what?
Oh, tell me what I got
I get this feeling
That time's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town
Tonight I gotta cut
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose
You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're yearning, burning for some
Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
You can fly if you'd only cut
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Shake it, shake it for me
C'mon, c'mon let go
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose
FIRST - we got to turn you around
SECOND - You put your feet on the ground
THIRD - Now take a hold of your soul
FOUR - Whooooooooa, I'm turning it

Look at that! This evidently turned into a "look at my babies post!" Yes, I said babies. I don't have children yet because evidently my eggs are all old and dried up so I have these two lovely little monkeys. The top is Omen after a cat nip binge. Don't touch her when she's like that. Then you have Jones (but you call him Dr. Jones!). He likes laundry baskets and white towels. Don't touch him at all. Jones also likes his privacy. But if you hear the tissue paper crinkle in the bottom of his little cat cube, don't make any sudden moves. That just means he has you in his sights and is getting ready to pounce. Lastly, we have Omen again. Stoned. Again. But it is fun when she is naughty to say "Bad Omen! Bad Omen!" But that doesn't happen very often because we let our babies do everything short of driving the car.

From the Worst-Case Scenario Almanac
1. Maintain eye contact with opponent.
Watch his/her weapon and body using peripheral vision. Size up each moment of the fight, pursuing all openings and weakness your opponent reveals.
2. Make constant, unpredictable movements.
Do not allow your opponent to take a clean shot or to anticipate your next move.
Make aggressive, threatening noises to frighten your opponent and instill confidence in you own abilities to finish the fight.
4. Start in the attack position.
Stand with your feet a comfortable distance apart, with your body bend slightly forward at the waist, knees slightly bent, and weight balanced on the balls of you feet. Hold the musket firmly, with you dominant hand on the butt or just behind the trigger guard and your other hand on the grip below the barrel. Position the musket diagonally across and slightly away from you body at about nose level.
5. Thrust the bayonet.
Grasp the musket tightly and pull the butt in close to your hip; partially extend your non dominant arm, guiding the point of the bayonet toward your opponent's face, throat, abdomen, or groin. Step forward with one leg and push with the full power of your body's movement, using your back heel, waist and hips rather than relying solely on upper body strength. Upon penetration, with the bayonet. To withdraw, shift your weight back and pull out along the line of penetration. Resume the attack position to continue with the fight.
6. Strike with the musket butt.
Step forward with the leg opposite your dominant hand and raise the musket in an arc, using your dominant hand to force the butt of the musket underneath your opponent's weapon on onto a vulnerable area of his body (anywhere from his face to his thighs). If delivered with enough force, a strike from the butt of the musket to a bony area can disable your opponent and possibly kill him/her. Resume the attack position.
7. Smash with the musket butt.
Push the butt of the rifle upward until it is horizontal, with the muzzle just above your non dominant shoulder and the bayonet pointing behind you. Step forward with the leg opposite your dominant hand and forcefully push with both arms, slamming the butt into your opponent's face. This move is often effective after striking with the musket butt.
8. Parry your opponent's attacks.
Counter the movements of your opponent by quickly raising your bayonet and striking the opponent's musket with your own. If the butt of his musket is at his left hip, deflect his thrust to your right; if the butt of his musket is at his right hip, deflect to your left. This will throw your opponent off balance and enable you to follow up with a thrust, strike, or smash.
9. Block surprise attacks.
To stop an opponent from striking your groin with the butt of his/her musket, extend your arms downward and slightly out from your body, catching his weapon at the center part of your musket. To stop a butt stroke to your upper body or head, hold your musket vertical so your opponent's weapon with hit at the center of your musket. Counterattack immediately.
10. Be relentless.
Quick action is imperative in a bayonet fight. You are fighting for your life.
1. In the majority of bayonet charges, the defensive side flees before any contact is made. Bayonet charges are often more a symbolic coup de grace meant to finish off the morale of the opposition than an order to actually engage in hand-to-hand combat. Because soldiers running toward a line with bayonets drawn present such an intimidating sight, the commander with field advantage often delivers the order to stop the battle by chasing the remaining enemy troops from the field. If you hear your field commander give the order for a bayonet charge, you can assume that you are on the winning side of an almost-finished fight.
2. Most actual bayonet fights occur not on a battlefield but in close combat situations in villages, woods, or gardens or on highly irregular, broken terrain.
3. Aiming at an opponent's breast may lead to impalement of the breastbone, making removal or the bayonet very difficult.

Pinky and the Brain are genetically enhanced lab mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Each week sees Brain come up with a new plan for the two (led by him) to take over the world, which ultimately ends in failure. In common with many other Animaniacs shorts, many episodes are in some way a parody of something else—usually a film. The cartoon's famous tag line is: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?" "The same thing we do every night Pinky - Try to take over the world!"Although they plan to conquer the earth, there isn't a lot of antagonism seen in them, and in a Christmas special Pinky even wrote to Santa that Brain had the world's best interests at heart. This is reinforced by Brain's promises that he will provide more funding for law enforcement and the like. Brain usually includes Pinky in his plans, but, not being the brightest bulb in the box, Pinky doesn't have a clue.
So, without further ado.....
"Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
"I think so, Brain, but where are we going to find a duck and a hose at this hour?
