I am Boreder Than Bored!

I am so incredibly bored! Methinks my job is no longer mentally stimulating and has fallen to the point of annoying. Some every thirty seconds or so, I go searching for an interesting article to read or something. I'm just so bored.

It's not like there isn't enough work to

-- We interrupt this blog for breaking news (kinda)--
Oh, holy crap! I just got a call from my dad; his boss² is offering us free tickets to Cirque du Soleil in the Verizon Corporate box for this Saturday's 1500 performance of Delirium. Oh, that so totally sucks! We are already committed to Celtic Fling in PA this weekend (committed to the level of hotel rooms already secured). That sucks greasy green canal water!
-- We now return to our regularly scheduled blog, already in progress --

very worried. That's actually just the sound they make, but it sounded like a worried sound. On Sunday, though, the three alpacas they had brought were rather lively. In the morning anyway. There was a pretty brown one, and a white one, and a brown one with a white face. At one point, the white faced guy was busy gumming the plastic fencing. Did you know alpacas don't have any upper teeth? It's just a hard palate that they mash food against with their lower teeth. So, it probably felt good against his gums. Anyway, I held my hand out for him (gently with palm down) and he sniffed and licked my hand! And I got close enough to pet him! Alpacas tend to prefer to be rubbed on their long necks rather than the tops of their heads, though that little puff of hair looks very soft. For the record, they are very soft creatures. I want one!

Later, they were all laying down, chewing on hay. It was kind of cool, you could follow the swallow all the way down their neck. These guys are so cute!

Well, that's all I have for today. I'm still bored!

My friend, Erin, who just came to visit, got to see alpacas for the first time last Monday. They said that when approaching the alpacas they had to stick their necks out and they felt like they were approaching Buckbeak! :D

We had the benefit of them being in a little pen. I'd believe it, though. The lady said you have to herd them, or you'll never catch them.
