The B***h Is Back!

by CajunKate

So, WOW! That was an entire month of HELL(!), in case you were keeping track. I finally, FINALLY, got my power cord back from Best Buy today. Yes, I got my laptop back two weeks ago but could not USE it because they sent it back with the wrong power cord. And it took two f**king weeks for them to finally send the right one to Best Buy who, by the way, NEVER called me to tell me it was in and then, when I finally went in today, and just stood there, saying in all ways except words, that I was not f**king leaving until they gave me a power cord, the slacker pothead in Geek Squad, after three trips to the mysterious "back," finally emerged with my power cord. And do you know what I did? Did I scream and throw a fit and make a big "I want to see the manager RIGHT NOW!" scene. Only if screaming out, "OH MY GOD! Thank you! I love you!" and scuttling to the exit with my tiny cardboard box counts, which I'm pretty sure it does not.

Nevertheless, I am back to having my OWN computer. Sweet, Baby Jesus, how I love it! No more sharing with Zandy and World of Warcrack. And you know what that means! Mo' bloggin', mo' bloggin', mo' bloggin'! Sorry. Unobstructed internet access is making me lightheaded.

Tomorrow, Alex and I head to Gulf Shores for the annual Mottram Thanksgiving. I hope all of you have a super- dooper, awesome, tryptophan overdose holiday break, my peeps!

Eliza "Talks"

By BDaigle

Eliza is getting big! She is now 13 lbs and 11 weeks old. We're excited she's doing so well, but sad she is growing up so fast! It seems like we just brought her home and now she's days away from rolling over.

I have better video to share of Eliza taking a bath and her baptism. Alas it was all shot with my "real" video camera and the process for publishing it to the blog is a little involved. It's coming, don't worry. In the meantime, here is a little "short" I took with Melissa's digital camera this evening.

Super Quick Share

by CajunKate

So I just ADORE this pic I took of Emily at the Cajuns' last home game. She is so beautiful! (Inside and out, I might add.) I just had to share.

Time Out!

by CajunKate

So it's not just the dead laptop situation that is interfering with my ability to blog. I also have three classes and a practicum this semester, thus I have a HUGE, GINORMOUS, SCARY exam in abnormal psychology on Tuesday. This means that every spare moment (not spent at tailgating and the Cajuns game, of course) must be devoted to studying....in theory. Basically what I'm saying is, you're going to have to wait until after Tuesday for a blog of any significance.

In other dead laptop news, I am in Internet Explorer HELL! Firefox, wherefore art thou, Firefox? No, seriously, I'm about to cut a b****h over this. "Exploder" SUCKS A**!

That is all.

Dear Tech Gods- You SUCK!

by CajunKate

So who knew that being without my laptop would make me anxious and crazy more anxious and crazier? That not having access to my email addresses, my bookmarks, my Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, and my pictures would cause me to chew my fingernails and ruminate over the injustice of it all? That going back to the Stone Age of sharing a PC with Alex is not in any way "fun" or "pleasantly nostalgic"? WHAT?!?!?!? You knew and didn't tell me? You f**kers.

Did you also know that not having access to my own computer would significantly decrease my long, picture heavy, rambling updates? HA! Joke's on you because I WILL find a way! And that way may be called "canceling Alex's subscription to World of Warcrack." Desperate times call for desperate measures, people!

UL! Give Them Hell!

by CajunKate

So it has been quite the busy weekend for the Mottrams. I gotta blog about Homecoming 2008 and ELiza Camille's baptism, but I am entirely too tired for that right now, so I leave you with a video posted on YouTube for the UL song by D.J. Sal that I posted the other day. This is my way of saying: Yeah! The Cajuns beat some FIU a** (49-20), and my boy Fenroy set TWO records! And Troy State lost, so the Cajuns are now the lone #1 team in the SunBelt! Not that I'm excited or anything.
