Catching You Up

It's been raining heavy in NYC all day. My hair is paying the price :0

I've been laying low so to speak and haven't felt like anything very interesting is happening to write about other than the sad saga of Leo over at his own blog. On that blog I am putting up the email exchanges between the rescue organization and myself to stand as a testiment to their lies and deceit hoping it become searchable in google and that someone in the NYC goverment takes notice of the mishandling of the situation and misappropriations of tax payer money.

Because of their lack of proper treatment of Leo, I have decided to keep him, even though he is a very special needs cat and will cost me a lot of money to keep on the proper medications for the remainder of his life. Leo is only about one year old. I am seeing good results and he deserves a nice home, with organic food and a loving mommy. And he has it.

Drowsey did a fun post today about keywords that bring people to her blog. I had been thinking about doing a similar post for a while. At some point I will list the exact totals but off the top of my head I know the two phrases most often used that result in finding my blog are "how to screw women" and "why men marry bitches". And what I find even more ironic is that the "screw women" search brings them directly to my post about Drowsey.

I joined a bunch of meetup.com groups recently and I am going to a walking group in my neighborhood for the first time, on Saturday morning...that is is this rain will stop. I am really excited to finally participate.

I am wondering if meetup.com is as popular in your part of the world as it is in mine. What groups do you belong to and how do you find people with the same interests as you to socialize with outside of the blogosphere?

It's funny that you should post about meetup.com. I just joined some groups last weekend. I'm actually thinking of starting my own. I joined a ladies movie club...but it doesn't seem too interesting. I also joined some couple groups, so my husband and I could meet some other people our age without children. Have fun with your walking group! :)

Hi Jessica, ZAZAZAZOOM on the new photo!

Let me know how your group goes too. Have you heard about the group No Kidding? I don't know if they have a meetup.com group but they are national. I have a good friend who belongs. It might be the right thing for you and the Mr.

Walking group was nice actually. I live near a HUGE park in Queens and have never been inside. It is really wooded and I don't feel it safe to go alone. This was the perfect way to finally get inside. We walked for an hour on one of three trails. Felt wonderful. Even got an email from one of the guy members "just to say hello" :-) I didn't even go for that reason.

Ooh, I'm glad you had a good time!

I'll have to check out No Kidding...I hadn't heard of it!! :)
