Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

This week’s photo challenge is “Path“.  I chose this pic from a walk around Lake Accotink.  This was taken last summer on a little Geocaching afternoon.

Newt: Einstein, Doc Brown and Dr. Rosen

I know, I know.  Another freakin’ post about cats.  Whatever has become of me?  But I have been totally smitten with Deb’s cats and I am no longer afraid to admit it.  Just don’t tell anyone, okay?

Over the last couple months Newt has started growing these wild hairs from behind her ears.  They are two little shocks of the whitest hair that frame her face in stark contrast to the rest of her fur.

These two little patches of hair are always sticking out from her head at all angles giving her the look of a mad scientist.  In my never-ending obsession with giving things names, I called them her “Einsteins”.  The name has stuck and become part of our vernacular even though we have recently found better examples of what the little girl actually looks like.

The first is Doc Brown:

Doc Brown not only has the same hair as Newt but the same crazy stare.  She always looks at me like she is getting ready to yell out, “1.21 gigawatts? 1.21 gigawatts? Great Scott!”

But in the last few weeks we have watched the show Alphas and we have found her perfect doppelgänger:

Dr. Rosen, played so well by David Straithairn, has a head of hair that is the spitting image of Newt.  The resemblance is pretty uncanny.

While she definitely looks more like Drs. Rosen and Brown, the name Einstein rolls off the tongue a bit easier so we are sticking with that…for now.

Until we can think of something better.

(oh and btw, watch Alphas.  It has been pretty good so far and Gary “Respect the Badge!” Bell  is my new favorite superhero)

Hurriquake Irene Preparation

I hope you didn’t wait til the last-minute to stock up on your break, milk, toilet paper and bottled water.

And for all of you West-Coasters that were making fun of us earlier this week for freaking over our little baby earthquake…come back and talk to me when you have an earthquake and hurricane in the same week.  Until that time, I only have one thing to say to you:
