I couldn't resist posting this pic of Greyboy from this weekend lol..all stretched out and cozy! He loves burrowing under blankets, it's so adorable. <3 Some things I'd love to photograph would be the glaciers and volcanoes in Iceland, Margerie Glacier, the Red Tide, etc

Day #15: Your favorite kiss )

Today's trivia: The Hollywood Walk of Fame has a star for three dogs: Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, and Strongheart
glacier_kitty: (kitty - couch)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I love Chex Mix, Cheddar Mini Pretzel Thins, popcorn, cookies, etc (they're delicious!). I'm definitely a big snack person, especially in the evening and on road trips and stuff. It must be comforting or something lol. I don't know what new snack I would invent..I'll leave that for creative people :P

Day #12: Your favorite love song )

Today's trivia: A rainbow can only occur when the sun is 40 degrees or less above the horizon
glacier_kitty: (mountains - snow 2)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Onions and hamburgers..I'm sure there are more, but those are the big ones I can think of. I guess I tried them again and suddenly decided I liked them haha

Cottage cheese. D: Soo grossss. We also ate a LOT of Domino's pizza, which is probably why we go to other places now to get pizza lol

Wow..Texas has been having crazy weather..tornadoes near Dallas and now snow near Ft. Worth! I'm so glad I don't have to worry about tornadoes anymore D:

Day #5: Your favorite hero )

Today's trivia: More bullets were fired in Starship Troopers than any other movie ever made
glacier_kitty: (ice cave)
[Error: unknown template qotd] photo DSCN1481_zpse6d05ed1.jpg
Well *I* didn't take this pic, but it's one of my all-time favorites of myself. I had wanted to see the Eiger in Switzerland, and I couldn't have had better weather..it was amazing! Everything about the picture is perfect and still makes me so happy. :D I'd love to photograph the glaciers and volcanoes of Iceland!

The album you listen to most often )

Today's trivia: In Cleveland, Ohio, it's illegal to catch mice without a hunting license
glacier_kitty: (eddard stark 2)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Yeah, mom and I were watching the Northern Lights a few years ago in the valley and we kept seeing this light in the distance. We first thought it was a car, but it obviously wasn't when it drifted straight through the tundra. It was completely silent. It kept drifting till it got to the edge of the trees and quite near is. It hovered there for a couple seconds and the light just went out..right as it did, you could see the housing the light was in. We were pretty spooked and weirded out and left after that haha. To this day we still have no idea what it was. We keep thinking of ideas (like a drone) but everything we thought of makes noise. So weird..

Mom and I are possibly going to Hawaii with family I haven't seen in 10+ years in February! That'll be awesome :D

An album with good memories )

Today's trivia: A thirsty camel can drink 35 gallons of water in just six minutes
glacier_kitty: (glacier - aletsch)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I love looking out the window, but I hate being cramped in one place for so long. I love the feeling of taking off, it's so exciting! The longest flights I've been on have been 8 or 9 hours I think. I watched movies, napped, read, etc. On one long flight the seat next to me was empty, so I could stretch out and be more comfy, which was awesome lol

This cold rainy weather is getting old..it's depressing and makes my face hurt :/ (At least I'm not having 3 day migraines when the weather was like this before..yay Amitriptyline!)

19 Day- A Screenshot of your browser )

Today's trivia: Keret House in Warsaw, Poland, is the world's narrowest house. It's being 48 inches at its widest interior span, and just 28 inches at its narrowest
glacier_kitty: (night sky 4)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I usually try to keep reading even if it's boring or annoying (especially if I'm already in the middle of it). Earlier in the year I tried reading I Am a Cat but had to stop cause it was so dry and boring. In the Shadow of Mount McKinley was ok, but then the author kept obsessively talking about all the animals he killed which got super annoying..his expeditions didn't sound super interesting either. I was so happy when I finished it lol. I'll just give it a low rating on Goodreads if I hated it :P

25:A song by an artist no longer living? )

Today's trivia: The tiny little island of Vulcan Point in the Philippines is the world's largest island within a lake (Crater Lake) that is situated on an island (Volcano Island, or Taal Island) located in a lake (Lake Taal) within an island (Luzon). It also happens to be one of the cones of the active Taal Volcano, so Vulcan Point is also the world's largest volcano in a lake (Main Crater Lake) on a volcano (Taal Volcano). Crater Lake also happens to be the largest lake on an island (Volcano Island) in a lake (Lake Taal) on an island (Luzon)
glacier_kitty: (dana and i - nyc)
[Error: unknown template qotd]The tallest building I've been to the top of was the Empire State Building with Dana I think (see icon!). I definitely took the elevator lol..I don't really think you had a choice anyway. There were great views of NYC up there! A pigeon landed on my head too, which was amusing :P

Ryan and mom are back (good, that was plenty of alone time for me lol..and I like my alone time :P). Ryan said the surgery helped him see better..nice!

12:A song from your preteen years? )
glacier_kitty: (abby 3)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Yeah, a lot of my dreams for awhile now have dealt with storms/lightning (probably from my years living in Texas). I've been struck by lightning, chased by tornadoes, etc. Last night in the dream I was so scared of the lightning I hid in this shack thing..other people in the dream thought I was being ridiculous lol. Also lately I've been dreaming of animals (usually bears or moose) trying to get into the house..weird :P

I've also dreamed I went to Carcassonne but couldn't get in, sycamore trees, being in the ocean and the water sucking me out no matter how I tried to hold on to the sand, trying to take pictures but something bad happens to the camera, etc. Dreams are so weird lol

Day 26: A band/artist that you hate )

Today's trivia: The first city to reach a population of 1 million people was Rome, Italy in 133 B.C.
glacier_kitty: (alaska - we grow ice)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Yes, once when I was a kid. My family and I took a trip to Mount St. Helens (I was obsessed with it at the time..guess I've always loved earth science :P) and we flew around the volcano..I remember the crazy damage that was still there from the eruption in the 80s. I kinda want to go on a helicopter again someday..

Day 22: A food that you hate )

Today's trivia: The flamingo can only eat when its head is upside down. They are among the very few animals that are able to move their top jaw while eating
glacier_kitty: (books)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I hate them..there is nothing like a real book. The feel and the smell and turning the page is just as important to me as the plot. I hate that they've made bookstores go out of business. I love seeing books filling my bookshelves..my apartment would be sad and empty without them! It's nice to take a break from technology too. It makes me happy when I see people reading physical books. I'd rather come home from a trip with a suitcase full of books instead of having an e-reader haha. They may be great for some people, but not for me. I probably have way too many thoughts on this, so I'll just stop here :P

Day 7: A character, person, or relationship on your favorite show that you hate )

Today's trivia: It is not allowed to have living US presidents featured on US currency. Presidents must be dead for at least two years before they are eligible for inclusion in the Presidential Dollar series
glacier_kitty: (explore)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Here are a few:

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves"--John Muir

"The mountains are calling and I must go"--John Muir (I could make this a giant John Muir post if I wanted to, all his quotes are amazing haha)

"Mountains are cathedrals: grand and pure, the houses of my religion. I go to them as humans go to worship...From their lofty summits, I view my past, dream of the future, and with unusual acuity I am allowed to experience the present moment. My strength renewed, my vision cleared, in the mountains I celebrate creation. On each journey I am reborn"--Anatoli Boukreev

"We often speak indiscriminately of cloud and fog, making no distinction between them, and, in truth, the only difference is one of altitude. A fog is a cloud with low aspirations"--From the book Tales of a Western Mountaineer

"I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life"--Jennifer Lawrence (she also has amazing quotes haha)

Day 4: A class that you hated taking )

Today's trivia: An elephant's trunk contains over 40,000 muscles
glacier_kitty: (switzerland)
[Error: unknown template qotd]I think it would be really cool to live in Switzerland..it's so relaxed and everyone seems happy (at least in the Alps anyway :P). I LOVE all the cute little towns nestled in the mountains..so scenic and pretty!! It might be a little hard to learn German, but I seem to catch on to languages kinda quickly :P

25. Post a sticky note or sign somewhere with a nice message. (take a picture and post it) )

Today's trivia: The Queen of England signals to staff with her handbag. If she wants to leave a dinner in five minutes, she puts her bag on the table. She moves it from arm to arm to tell aides she is tired of talking to someone
glacier_kitty: (alaska - we grow ice)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Some of them are evergreen trees, books, popcorn and Alaska air in the summer. There are memories, like geocaching in the woods, being in the mountain, reading a book that smelled amazing haha, etc. Mothballs remind me of my best friend's house when I was a kid, but I'd call that "nostalgic" and not exactly a "favorite"

Yesterday Bonnie and I took off work and went geocaching with mom instead haha. Someone put like 20 some caches in an area we've been wanting to go to for awhile now, so that was the perfect excuse lol. I found 14 and Bonnie and mom found more, but I was completely done and bored after finding 14, so I just went back to the car. Guess I'll have to go back :P

15. A T.V. Show that makes you smile )

Today's trivia: January is named after the Roman god Janus, who was always shown as having two heads. He looked back to the last year and forward to the new one
glacier_kitty: (northern lights 8)
[Error: unknown template qotd]A cold environment (I basically do anyway lol). I really don't like the heat..it makes me feel awful and it's hard to think. At least when it's cold you can put on layers and turn up the heat and stuff. I would honestly rather it be -40 than 100 degrees. I worry every summer it'll get over 80 and 90 degrees..it makes my apartment feel like an oven. D: I'd much rather be cozy under a blanket haha

14. A Convo that makes you happy (from a movie or chat or whatever) )

Today's trivia: Popcorn is the official snack of Illinois
glacier_kitty: (luca - sword)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Definitely tornadoes..I was always terrified I would experience one when I lived in Texas. The closest I came was when there were rotating clouds above the house, which was scary enough. I still dream about tornadoes a lot too. I'm glad Alaskan storms are relatively tame haha

2. A Quote that makes you smile )
glacier_kitty: (glacier - aletsch)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Mom saw heather flowers somewhere, and wanted to name me after something so beautiful. :) Heather is fine, but if I had to change it, Morgan maybe. My middle name (Susan) is from my Aunt Susan, cause we were living with her at the time

day 22 - favorite documentary )

Today's trivia: Cuba is the only Caribbean island with a railway
glacier_kitty: (ice cave 2)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Yeah, I feel like I share traits with multiple ones, like Hermoine, Arya, Katniss, Tyrion, etc. I'd try not to get killed haha

With some of my money I decided to sponsor a shelter cat. Thought that would be nice :)

Today I went geocaching for the first time since I got back from Arizona..I got NO caches last month!! (It can be hard to cache in Alaska in the winter..) I was definitely having withdrawals haha

A couple nights ago I dreamed I was Jennifer Lawrence and had to give a speech cause I won an award..I was nervous, but decided to open with "well, at least I didn't trip this time." LOOL..that's amazing :P

day 21 - favorite action movie )
glacier_kitty: (aragorn 2)
[Error: unknown template qotd]My top two favorites are probably lemonade and strawberry smoothies..so delicious!! Some places don't make good smoothies, like Starbucks..ew (I'll get one there if I'm desperate though haha, like long layovers at airports :P). In Fairbanks, Forget-Me-Not Espresso and River City Cafe make the best smoothies I think. I'm craving one now :P

day 12 - favorite movie from your favorite actress )

Today's trivia: Armored knights raised their visors to identify themselves when they rode past their king. This custom has become the modern military salute
glacier_kitty: (self-concious icon)
[Error: unknown template qotd]Definitely wings, I'd love to be able to fly wherever I want and just soar through the air :D

day 06 - favorite science fiction movie )

Today's trivia: Female aphids give birth to other live female aphids that are already pregnant with yet more female aphids
