I spent Saturday afternoon at the wonderful San Diego Zoo with my friend and fellow board member, Carol. Since we only had a couple of hours, it was a bit of a whirlwind tour, but we still got to see most of the animals we wanted to see. The only disappointment is that the big cats were doing what most cats do, they had found a sunny spot and were sleeping the afternoon away. Unfortunately, the sunny spots weren't in good viewing areas. But other animals didn't disappoint...
Baby Pandas are so cute.
And big pandas are pretty darn cute too. Bamboo sure is tasty.
This duck has a really pretty blue bill. Unfortunately, he didn't want to sit still for a photo.
I just couldn't resist.
This is some sort of wild cat from Africa, but it really looks like someone dropped their tabby cat off at the zoo. If I ever get tired of my kitties, now I know where to take them.
*If you're not a fan of Friends, then the title of this post probably makes no sense to you, but to me, it makes me laugh every time I hear it. I can't go to the zoo without hearing Joey say that line in my head. It's a word snob thing.
If you're reading this, you probably already know me, so I won't do a long intro, but if you've somehow stumbled across this, here are the highlights. I have lived in Bartlesville, Okla. for the last year and work for a major energy company as a communications consultant. My job keeps me very busy and I've been traveling quite a bit lately between Houston (ugh.) and Calgary. I'm also very active with the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), a professional organization that has played a huge role in my career. This is my 10th year of doing triathlons, and IM Wisconsin 2007 will be my 2nd Ironman. My first Ironman was Wisconsin in 2004. I finished in 13:25:50, so my goal this year is to beat that time by at least 1 second. Aim high, right? :)
I bought my first house when I moved to Bville and live there with the worlds most adorable roommates, my two cats, Stewart and Xena. As I type this, they are sprawled across my living room floor trying to soak in as much of the sunbeam as possible. Ah, the life of a cat. You can tell them apart by looking at their noses, Stewart's is black, Xena's is white.
So, that's it for now. Feel free to comment, I'd love to hear from you. Lynn
