Bissell Week 7 Link
The second of Wyatt's pictures is in Week 7 (I entered two), so if you are bored you can vote for him again by clicking on the new button below. This second one is just for fun because I liked this picture better, so no hardcore campaigning this time around. The results of Week 6 will be posted tomorrow. Although I CAN report that in both weeks 6 and 7, with hundreds of pets entered, Wyatt was the only pet named Wyatt. Ha.

Vote for Wyatt!
I entered Wyatt in Bissell's Most Valuable Pet Photo Contest and everyone can vote for him! He is only in the Week 6 round of voting, Feb 17-24, so vote soon! You can only vote once per person per weekly voting round.

The winner gets to be on a Bissell Vacuum Box (wouldn't Wyatt be a perfect vacuum spokesman, given that he is scared to death of them?) The winner's owner gets a free vacuum (I am an obsessive vacuumer.) The winner's owner's favorite animal charity gets $10,000! Help out Utah Animal Advocacy Foundation (where I got him) and vote for Wyatt! Click on the button below or the ad on the left side and it will take you to the voting form. Thanks!

My New House: The Bedroom & Loft
This picture is of the totally cute loft in my bedroom. It's slightly larger than a twin size mattress and has a convienent electric socket in a little cubbie, which I have been informed is the perfect size and place for a little flatscreen TV. The cat loves to hang out up there, however Wyatt has tried and failed miserably in climbing the ladder. He was initially not very happy that the cat could get up and he could not...I would go so far as to say he threw a "temper tantrum." However, a few weeks later, he got his wish when it took two of us to get him up and get him back down.

This is the view of the rest of the room from the top of the loft ladder. I like my blue brick wall and wood corner.

25 Random Things For The Loss...

1. I have been licked by a 850-lb grizzly bear.

2. I have been privy to Classified information three times in my life.

3. I have literally saved the life of the same person three times. The second time his BAC was .54.

4. I used to be a drummer. I was in the jazz band, drumline, marching band, orchestra, everything.

5. I have interviewed at Dugway Proving Grounds twice.

6. The gap between my front teeth is because I was "an abnormally coordinated" child.

7. I lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for seven months, most of which was their coldest winter on record. I would move back in a heartbeat if I could afford it.

8. I have suffered from chronic motion sickness since I was six years old.

9. I almost burned down my O Chem lab by refluxing a very closed system.

10. I am very against Facebook, MySpace, and the majority of other social networking sites. I didn't used to be this way.

11. I also used to be a hardcore gamer...World of Warcraft, Guild Wars and Spore mostly. Don't do that anymore either.

12. I have not owned a TV since 2005. I watch LOST, NCIS, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann on my internet machine.

13. I have worked in over 25 different jobs. Seriously, I can manage high yield accounts, flip burgers, wire fireworks, sequence DNA, maintain a line of 23,000 people, run a Gap store, tell you about every high-end cowboy boot available, rescue animals, intubate, start an IV, 5S the hell out of my department and explain the technicalities of plastination, yet I cannot balance my checkbook or keep a boyfriend.

14. I started working in pyrotechnics when I was 18. This will be my 12th summer shooting shows for other people instead of eating BBQ and going to parties.

15. I have an irrational phobia of wind.

16. At one time, in a little one bedroom apartment, I had one dog, two cats, a rat and a duck. The duck was in the bathtub.

17. I really, honestly, have no patience. At all. For anything. It is not my virtue. I get bored easily and I hate stupid people, so.....I can get in trouble.

18. I have 3 holes in each ear and one tattoo on my shoulder.

19. I still have never been to Disneyland, Disneyworld, or any other large location of happiness owned by Walt Disney Co.

20. I have an ulcer.

21. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of The X-Files and LOST.

22. From March until the time we are physically forced out by a Park Ranger because of snow, Wyatt and I will spend more time camping and hiking than we spend at home.

23. I go to work in goth when I am angry.

24. I still like Bon Jovi and I am NOT ASHAMED OF IT.

25. I am a total sellout for doing this thing. UPDATE: I'm really not. I just feel like a dork. :-)
