NEW SEA CRITTERS IN THE PHILIPPINES

On the National Geographic website there are a couple of articles on newly discovered sea creatures. Of course, these critters have been around for a very long time, but a recent research expedition is cataloguing them in an effort to protect the Philippines’ rich oceanic biodiversity.

A beautiful purple crab.

A sea "pancake" that makes me think of a blini, sour cream, and caviar.

A sea pen. Apparently the part of the creature that looks like a quill pen is buried in the sand.

I just had to repost this from Pkitass. I think we all suffer from procrastination sometimes.

All I Know Is This.....

Pro·cras·ti·nate:

To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness.

 

So if blogs had social workers I’m 100% sure I’d be visited my them, I’m also pretty sure I’d be court ordered to take blogging classes. I’ve been neglecting it in such a way that I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t blogged since  (I’ll be right back I need to go check the date) February  26th! February 26th that’s 8weeks or 56 days ago. Wow! Now if only I had a good enough excuse to give you all, maybe If I told you I was out saving puppies and kittens or out curing world hunger it wouldn’t be so bad.  But sadly it’s just plain laziness and lack of creativity.

I did however google how to Stop Procrastinating and I found a small list

1. Stop thinking. Start doing.

The thing here is if I stop…

SUNRISE AT HALEAKALA

My Hubby actually took these photos when we were in Maui. He did one of those sunrise bike rides where they bus you up the volcano and then after sunrise you bike down it. I was busy sleeping and then getting a massage while he did this.

MADHOUSE

I just watched Madhouse (1974) with Vincent Price and I think that of all of his movies I’ve seen to date, this is his best.

Here is the plot, which I’m quoting from wikipedia:

Price plays Paul Toombes, a horror actor whose trademark role is ‘Dr. Death’. Years after a scandal ends his film career (his fiancee is murdered and Toombes ends up in an asylum, suspected but never convicted of the crime), the embittered Toombes revives his character for a television series. Cast and crew begin to die in ways that suggest scenes from Toombes’s films, and they all point to Toombes. Now, Toombes must find and confront the real killer, before he becomes the next victim.

The ending is fantastic. This will be a bit of a spoiler. But there was an actress who was in one of his movies, and he didn’t want her romantically, and while he was in the asylum she was in a fire and burned and sort of went mad, and at the end of the movie Price gets burned and goes even more insane, and so they live insanely ever after.

Pretty good characters with emotional issues, Price is great as you see him crumbling. I recommend it.
