this picture has nothing to do with this post

so, the big trip is coming up in less than a month! i need to pack! i need to make outfits! i need to get supplies ready for the “those darn cats” bloodless coup that will be mousefest this year!

but instead, i am making a weird mp3 of christmas music that maybe bryan and jonathon will play on AATM.

hey, one must have their priori-tays

team voice!

most folks know i recently had surgery that precluding any type of “impact” (high or low) exercises in august. most folks also know that, like last year, i am entered to do the half marathon in january.

kinda effs with the whole training thing, huh??!!

i have been slowly getting back into low impact exercise. last week i started back to work and prior had done a couple of ~ 3.5 mile “wogs”. despite impressing myself with my overall times on my previous “runs” (and by impress i mean, not fall over and die, finish it and actually have a time shorter that the first 5K i ever ran (which i did jog mostly) ). this makes me optimistic that even where i am starting from now, i know i won’t get swept and maybe my goal of a) jogging the entire race and b) finishing at 2 1/2 hours is at least within the realm of possibility.

so imagine my delight when i heard my name come up on this weeks AATM podcast! AND to further delight me, dr. scopa remembered me and the late night conversation we had saturday night at magic meets – the night when overcame my “scopaphobia”.

check out the episode if you havent already. jonathon and bryan always do a great job, they have a nice mix of topics and interviews and i am pleased to call them friends after our inauspicious face to face meet at mousefest last year. jonathon is a huge inspiration to me goal wise, while bryan is my go to guy for weird podcast questions (and florida weather alert news updates).

this cat says “check it out!”

look who’s having fun…

Posted in AATM, pics, pins on July 13, 2008 by sambycat

the timing of this weeks AATM podcast is right on! bryan may want some snazzy jessica rabbit pin, but i recieved this in the mail saturday –


it’s a cast member exclusive pin (i wouldn’t have known what that was exactly, but for the pin giver and john rick from central jersey pin collectors)! BEYOND! AND it has a hidden mickey! AND it is awesome! AND it was a surprise gift! to say i am coveting my new precious would not be too extreme…

interestingly, for someone not a pin “collector”, nor a pin trader, i am amassing some nice tinkerbell pins! 



oh… THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cous cous abuse

Posted in AATM, recipes on May 30, 2008 by sambycat

bryan at AATM seems to feel that the cous cous found at the moroccan pavilion isn’t, well, isn’t up to his cous cous standards.


how can this be? why this cous cous abuse? i am no expert on moroccan food, but i must say – the cous cous found in the world, well, it is damn delectable. one might even call it DANG TASTY! the cous cous of my dreams one might say. i sought out this cous cous recipe. i have made it. when i make it, i cannot keep myself from devouring it within mere days of making a double batch.


people, i ask you, nay, i IMPLORE you to put an end to this cous cous abuse. tell bryan – cous cous abuse is wrong, and we just won’t stand for it. cous cous is a terrible thing to abuse.


what do we want?


when do we want it?


i’m ready for my close up, mr demille

 well, thanks to an announcement on this weeks AATM, you can link up to be part of an independent fiilm  project about the independent disney on-line community – check it out at: The DFO. click over to the site and consider making a submission – there is a deadline for some materials by june 18th, i think. i know myself and a certain other cat i am friends with would be FABULOUS subjects for our OWN documentary, but we’d be a great addition to any program (as we have demonstrated!! 😉 )

i KNOW there isn’t a soul who may come across THIS blog who doesn’t listen to AATM, along with all the other a-listers, but if you haven’t checked it out – DO!!!! take it from all-about-the-mouskateer #145 – its soooo much fun!

 side note: there is an awesome picture of the thunderbirds flying spaceship earth on the AATM show notes page that i am desperately trying to steal and post here, but can’t seem to get wordpress to cooperate!!!!!! but go look at it! isn’t it great!!!!!!!!!!! if you’ve seen my personal blog, you’d know that i ❤ jet noise (and what my favorite flying machine is) but this picture freakin’ ROCKS!!!!!!
