Who knew the state of Michigan was like a wild animal park??

So far in the two weeks I have been here, it has felt somewhat like a zoo in that I am seeing animals that I have only seen in pictures in real life. I guess that happens when you grow up in the desert.

I have seen these three:

Unfortunately for me and them, they all seem to be "playing possum" on the side or middle of the road.
I have seen a few live animals though, like a snake, a chipmunk, and a big fat rat. The rat was huge and disgusting and I have never seen anything like it! Insects also do not seem to be in short supply here, and when Peter and I went on a bike ride yesterday a big fat bee ran right into my head. And these bees aren't normal sized, they are like the size of June bugs but with huge ol stingers.

Hopefully I will see more animals as the months go by, and less of them hanging out by the road.

Ever since i can remember i been poppin' my collar

Yes, we all have popped collars. And yes, it is awesome.

I have finally created this blog thanks to the enormous amounts of free time i have thanks to my joblessness, homelessness, and yes, childlessness. My secret plan was to wait until we had a child to start a blog so it didn't seem like Peter and I were self-absorbed, but, I needed something to do for the next two months.

Also, it is Peter's birthday today! Hooray for being 24. And his present from me and many parents (thanks for the checks, you guys are awesome!!) is the gift of life. In the form of a sweet helmet for when he gets a scooter one day. Tonight we will have a delicious dinner of steak (Having never bought steak before, i had to ask the butcher what kind to get and felt like a doofus) and potatoes and veggies. Then Peter's monstrous dessert of whoppers and brownies.

If i say too much more i will feel silly, as the only thing that is rather funny is the cat, and i don't want to turn into one of THOSE people. Hahaha oh wait i already am.
