Voting Day!

Marty voted today!  How did he vote when it's not election day you ask? He mailed in his ballot.  Marty wasn't sure if he was going to have time to participate in his civic duty on elections day, so he requested his mail in ballot from his county registrar's office and they mailed it to him!  Matty just slept all day, patriotically.

Mmmmmm Chocolate!!!

This is how Marty felt today when he went to the Los Angeles Luxury Chocolate Salon at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Marty had to wait in long lines to try all the delicious chocolate

Everyone wants to try Ococoa's delightful little chocolate pieces

Hello, Lobster Lady!

Oh noooo!  Marty ate too much lobster, now he's turning into one!

Marty doesn't function correctly when he hasn't had his morning cup o' jo, so his day did not get off to the brightest start when he opened his cupboard and the coffee tin was empty.  But Marty didn't worry, instead he went to his local Trader Joe's and bought some more.  It wasn't until he was half way home that he realized he forgot to grind the beans.  Still no worries, Marty decided 7/11 has just as good a coffee.  Unfortunately to his dismay the construction workers outside the 7/11 had cut the water pipe, so there was no coffee.  By that time Marty needed coffee bad.  So he broke out his mortar and pestle and paw ground his beans.  Finally coffee at last!

Labor Day!

Marty suited up in his cleanest overalls to help get dirty this Labor Day.  He visited the Templeton Farmers Market to pick out fresh veggies to grill, Marty is no vegetarian,but sometimes he needs a little more fruit and veggies in his diet.

Film Processing!

That Red Bull Flutag thingy was this weekend near Marty's house, but it was much too beautiful a day to spend it outside.  Instead Marty stayed indoors, in the dark, processing film!

Marty visited the giant litter box to see what the haps where over the weekend, and to his wonderful suprise people were making sandcastles!  Now time to train Matty to do that with his litter.

Laundry Day!

Today Marty had a big load of laundry to do, and since he was running out of clean underwear, he couldn't procrastinate on doing it any longer.  Marty likes to wash his clothes by hand.  It's a great workout and it makes him feel all old timey and stuff.

Here's some tips it you're gonna do laundry by hand:
1. Wear sandals, cause you're more then likey gonna spill some water
2. Wear some rubber gloves when washing the whites, cause the hot water is really hot
3. Don't take a shower before you wash your clothes, cause you're gonna get all sweaty and your hair will poof from all the humidity
4. The best place to do your laundry is the bathroom, cause the floors are used to being wet
5. Ooooh!  and Ikea has some cheap drying racks for sale.  Marty wanted the one that hangs from the ceiling to save space, but as with all Ikea stuff Marty looked at the packaging and decided no way was he gonna try to put that together.  Plus he's kinda short and can't reach the ceiling to hang it anyway.

Ooooooh The Desert!

Ooops!  Marty almost forgot about Marty Monday, but he remembered late last night.  So here is Marty Tuesday, he's even wearing his Tuesday socks! 

Marty loves going out to the desert, and this week he went out to the Desert Tower, which is on the way to El Centro.  There's some weird stuff out there!

Marty Mondays back on track!

Bet you though Marty forgot all about you, he didn't!  He was in the process of moving back to L.A. and didn't have internet for a month, a whole month!  But now Marty is back online and surfing the web like a pro.

Marty still needs to get a few things for the new apartment, like a bed, but he's just real excited to have the internet working

He even has his own Marty sized fridge.

And a little corner to do his work and do some people watching, especially of the people picking through the trash for the cans for recycling and the trash guys who come every morning, except Saturday and Sunday.

 And plenty of space for all his books of cats, but he has to make room for his copy of Kitty Wigs, which he hopes to be ordering soon.

Alien Hunting!

It's a strange strange world out there, and Marty heard it was filled with aliens.  Marty packed up his alien hunting gear and went out to find em, and boy howdy did he ever!
