Annie git yur gun

Just a quick rant about terrorists making life difficult for the rest of us. I’m trying to transfer money to my BFF so that she can pay our Cape Cod beach rental. Yes I KNOW that I should have done this a while ago but procrastination you is mah friend. So anyhoo Wendy needs to pay it by June. No probs I’ll just set up a paypal account for Wal and bingo done. Eeerm nope wait one darn second it couldn’t be that easy. It appears that Wal’s bank makes you jump through hoops before they’ll let you transfer money. You might be a terrorist after all. So you’re probably thinking just go to the bank and w/d the money, deposit the money into your account and then you can use your own paypal account. Yes on paper tinternetz paper that sounds great except that Wal is in Italy all this week. So I’m going to have to wait until he gets back. Not the end of the world but still really inconvenient. He can’t even transfer the money on-line to me because I’m not set up as a valid/authorized direct debit!! Yep thats right people if you want to transfer money and you use B Bank then you have to set up the person as a direct debit AND they make you wait a couple of days before you can confirm the person. You know just in case the terrorist changes his mind in the ‘cooling off’ period and decides not to transfer money.

Also people my diet is in serious jeopardy! OOOH MEIN GOTT!! I had bookmarked this blog, Fresh from the Oven, a while ago but hadn’t really spent any time drooling reading it. You have to check it out- ooh mah gawd this woman can cook-if her photos are anything to go by.

It was a bank holiday on Monday.

I broke out the bubble gun this weekend.  Squidge was only mildly interested.  I on the other hand had a blast playing with it.

It was very windy and I was trying to get a photo of a bubble. A nice clear image of a bubble. Unfortunately most of my photos looked like this.

Then I got this

I’m loving this photo- a perfect bubble w/ great bokeh. It has been very very windy and I should have waited but still innit purdy?

On Saturday we went to see some friends of Wal’s.  One of my most favorite people was there- HI BIFF!!  Squidge had a great time and the kids where great playing with her.  For some odd reason I didn’t pull out my camera so no photos.  I think it was the fact that I was freezing my butt off.  It was sooo cold I could  barely move! Gots ta love the weather here.

    Gah. Red tape sucks.

    That photo is fab. Just wait until the weather is actually summery and it will get even better. What the heck is bokeh?

    At least you’ll get a summer this year. I need some sunshine!

    Cool pic! Also glad to see Squidge has returned to her rightful position at the top of the page!!!!!
    Oh yeah and once you’ve transfered your money they hang onto it for a while in limbo land where neither of you get any interest!!!!
