We had a nerdy day on May 4th, as it's Star Wars Day all over the world... (May the Fourth be with you) - so the boys got their inner geek on... (Yes, my boys internet names - Chewie and Artoo are Star Wars names)
|The Dark Side has never looked so cute|
Rain Rain go away... come again another day.... this week has been pretty rainy, so it's been a little bit crazy cabin-fevery up in here. That, and i think that it may be Chewie's turn to feel not so hot. I'm not sure what's going on, but he's been very cranky, moody, ornery, and just a peach to be around. :)
Here's a quick adorable photo of Artoo:

I'm so excited, i can hardly stand it... on Saturday (May 12) i turn 32 and B-rad and i are going to go out for curry at the most wonderful Indian place, then off to see the new Johnny Depp flick... a WHOLE night out?? i'm so pumped.

it has nothing to do with this week's challenge,
i just wanted to share it, cuz it's perrrrdy. :D
Weekly Challenge #69: "UMT v.IV: Groovy"
I was so happy that the random number generator landed on #26... Eden from Cut'n It Up has this wonderful tangle that i've been eyeing up for some time now.... so i was thrilled to use it this week!
What's sweet about Groovy is that it looks like a curvy version or tangleation of Keeko, but it's executed differently. You can see instructions on how to create this great tangle on her blog here.
For those of you who don't know about this feature, UMT is short for Use My Tangle - a feature wherein i select one of the tangles that YOU created as the challenge for the week. The UMT will happen the first Monday of the month, and if you have a tangle that you'd like to submit to this, you can use the link above, or follow this link here
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address). The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
Hey - i should note here quickly that i try my best to get the slideshows up in a timely fashion, but sometimes my life gets in the way (like when Artoo spends a week in the hospital, just for example) so, please be patient. thanks. HUG
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
