Me and a Matrix star

This is me and a movie star from the movie, Matrix. I didn't actually see the movie so she could just be a crazy person. See if you can figure out who's who.

LottieLogic: If she is a movie star, I'm not so short after all.

Puppies dropped off in the country

Barbara and David Dybala live in my idea of the country, no 7-11 in walking distance. These two adorable puppies were dropped off by some disgusting person with no heart. They could have been coyote snacks, but were taken in by Barbara and David. The couple are looking for homes for these babies.
What is wrong with people who do this? I have so many fabulous friends who work tirelessly to help animals like these two puppies. How people can still not spay, neuter and treat these wonderful creatures so cruelly?

Lottie Logic: People who treat animals like this should be treated like this.

Firelfies are disappearing

Tonight I read fireflies are not doing well because of this drought. There's always the fire ants after them and so forth, but we must save the fireflies. Someone needs to bring us rain. I'm in constant touch with friends and family in New Iberia, Louisiana and they have had rain, rain, rain. I keep asking them to send us some. Please ask your friends and family to send us rain if not for every other reason than to save our fireflies.

Lottie Logic: What is childhood without being able to capture fireflies in a jar and then let them go? What's adulthood without the first lightening bug of the season that brings these memories back to you? Save our fireflies.

Stilettos or shiny?

Stilettos: sleek, stylish, savvy, slender, slight, sexy

Tennis shoes: short, surefooted, solid, shoestrings

Both fashion icons

Lottie Logic: wear the tennis shoes, carry the stilettos in your purse, put on the stilettos as you enter the party, right before shooting pains up your leg cripple you, switch.

Wax paper in the oven

I can't manage much in the kitchen, hardly anything. But I buy this bag of frozen parmesan encrusted tilapia. I bought the bag because I love tilapia and the bag said, "simply bake". Even I should be able to put a frozen fish in the oven, oven set knob to 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Well, I can, except I bake the fish in our toaster oven. I put the fish on a piece of tinfoil on the little pan that came with the toaster oven so I don't have to wash the pan.

But I ran out of tin foil yesterday. All I had was wax paper. Can't remember buying it or what you use it for, but assume since it was in the same drawer as the tin foil must be OK? NOT! There was a little fire in the little toaster oven.

Juli called tonight and I thought to ask her what in the world wax paper is for. She went on and on. Finally I told her about the little fire and asked what wax paper was doing in my kitchen. She came up with the answer, "It was probably for some art project".

Lottie Logic: put art supplies in your studio and STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN.

Another question, "Why is the wax paper in the above picture in the bathroom?" Wax paper is extremely confusing.

An egg a day keeps Dr. Oz at bay

Dr. Oz says an egg a day provides the daily protein we need. I saw a commercial on TV for a drink providing the daily protein we need and has minimal sugar, salt, calories, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, fiber, wood, yarn, glass, metal, plastic - well you're starting to get the idea.

Decided to go with the egg, even tho I admit the drink was tasty.

And my State Fair of Texas Sculpture - finished before August, thank goodness:

Camouflage Walking Stick

I love these bug that look like little branches to camouflage themselves. However, this little guy was on our sliding glass door all day, leisurely moving around. Did he think he was glass?

This is the sliding glass door to our master bathroom. Perhaps he's just a Peeping Tom? Wait, Peeping Stick?
