OC Zoo

 

OC Zoo is actually in Irvine Ranch Park not the Irvine Ranch Historic Park.  Don’t know why Irvine parks’ names are so confusing, but they are different places.  The former is at the top of the hill off Jamboree, and the latter is at the bottom of the hill at Jamboree.  I am not even sure Irvine Ranch Park is physically within Irvine city limits although it is officially.  Anyways, Irvine Ranch Park is a real park unlike Irvine Ranch Historic Park that is only a parking lot, a bunch of old office buildings and a small library.

OC Zoo is tucked inside Irvine Ranch Park.  And, I mean it’s tucked deep inside the park.  Many people I discuss about the park with didn’t even know there’s a zoo inside the park.  It’s not a big zoo.  But, it has a good selection of healthy wilder beats and even has a petting zoo.

We took Ellis to this zoo about a year ago.  She seemed too young to enjoy the zoo at the time.  She was too sheepish to pet the goats.  But, a year later, she’s petting the goats with aplomb.

Also, about a year ago, Ellis was a little allergic of heights.  She’d instantly cry whenever I attempt to put her over my shoulders.

However, at the behest of a friend, I put her over my shoulders so to give Ellis a look-out view of the bear cage.  At first, I thought she wouldn’t be so accepting.  But, it turned out ok.

Since previous update, Ellis has maintained her good sleeping habits.  On weekends, she usually sleeps around 11pm and wakes up at 7am.  She takes in a small breakfast, and she goes back to sleep for another couple of hours usually until 10am.  She’d take a nap from about 4pm to 6pm.  The quality of her sleep is pretty deep.  I don’t think her cycles are interrupted easily anymore.

We still keep the youtube lullabye regimen.  Now, whenever we are about to hit the bed, we’d get on the computer to search for the lullabye site.  And, Ellis will say “we’re listening to the sleepy song again”.  We were surprised that she realizes the intention of the songs we play for her.

    Damn. that brush sure looks tasty.

    just got back from big island. i tried logging in to your site once, but internet was horrible there– wouldn’t load at all.

    • Llips don’t lie

      Missed you

      • Phonow

        howzit lady! missed you too.

        did you see the video? goat almost ate etane’s hair brush.

        • dd

          w/b, kgb lady! did you evict your tenants then crush their shopping carts??

          • Phonow

            haha. the former tenants were too poor to own a shopping cart. but i did kick their puppy.

            nice to see you back “dd.”

          • dd

            you capitalist! no wonder you support hilary.

          • Phonow

            not capitalist. i belong to the united anarchists of america, hawaii chapter.

            am watching the eddie aikau surf meet http://quiksilver.com/surf/events/eddie-aikau/

            long delay between sets. commentators driving me nuts with filler material.

          • dd

            how do anarchists by definition be a part of any organization?

            must be fun watching grown men standing on a plank of wood. reminds me of your altar at home.

          • Phonow

            i like the contradiction in terms. :) it is like calling my repug friend soooo right… he is almost left.

            haha. that would be trippy. surfing on buddhist altar planks. list all of your deceased relatives on your customized surfboard. you may have started a new fad.

          • dd

            that’s how you should spread cremated ashes. surf on an altar plank.

          • Phonow

            haha. my friend told me he wants to scatter my ashes around his favorite avocado tree. but i digress.

            christians can surf on “begat” boards.

            hey scalia got cremated. isn’t he catholic? any conspiracy theories?

          • dd

            yah he unloaded on a prostitute the night before. probably for a favorable judgement.

          • Phonow

            ewww. poor lady.

            will look up conspiracy theories later. :)

          • dd

            maybe it’s not a lady

          • Phonow

            hence the heart attack.

          • dd

            hahhaha from the shock… of joy

          • Phonow

            truly a “log” cabin moment.

          • dd

            that cabin’s owner is part of some 500 yrs old secret hunter society.

          • Phonow

            like skull n bones.

            don’t you find it strange that repugs always get shot on hunting trips? maybe scalia did not want to apologize to cheney. ;)

          • dd

            apologize for wut?

          • Phonow

            remember when dick cheny went hunting with whittington. & shot him in the face? afterwards, whittington made a public apology to cheney for the media frenzy that occured after the shooting. haha.

            my conspiracy theory is that cheney shot scalia in the face– & scalia refused to apologize for being in the path of the bullet. hence the coup de grace and the immediate cremation.

          • dd

            apparently there’s no harm to scalia’s face but no one’s seen his body

            heard of the heart attack gun?

          • Phonow

            haha. you do not play conspiracy theory games.

          • dd

            homey don’t play. i go eat!

          • Phonow

            okie dokie cya

          • Phonow

            heart attack guns & killer umbrellas.

            heart attack guns do not make sense. killer umbrellas on the other hand…..

          • dd

            i never heard of killer umbrella other than the one in this one james bond film. but the heart attack gun makes a lot of sense to me. at least when i first heard about scalia on the npr, they said scalia was pretty healthy. then, later on, the media says he was a ticking time bomb. which is real?

          • Phonow

            ttyl but here is killer umbrella

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgarian_umbrella

            sws is a strange one. he-she has already written 100,000+ posts in a short amount of time. gads.

          • Llips don’t lie

            haha. sws has only 11,000+ posts. not 100,000.

            gads. glad i am not an accountant.

          • Llips don’t lie

            My goodness
            Didn’t she only joined the site like 6 months ago? ??
            I can bet she’s on n duty now at both sites and apparently others
            Too invested to be just a fan

          • Phonow

            I can’t believe she would spend so much time posting unless she is currently unemployed/retired.

            haha. am lurking at portal. KH sure loves sws. who would have thunk.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Kh is so oo dense
            Caught up by her earlier flattery

          • Phonow

            i notice that basketball mountain does not show up anymore. i wonder if he changed his name, or decided that his mission was accomplished.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Do u notice too that s. Charles “personality ” has changed?

            Now just straight sarcasm
            No attempt at humor

            Yes, bm is glaringly missing

            But Tina is back
            Those two accounts usually show up together. ..

          • Phonow

            damn, yes- i noticed that Tina and bm show up together. i think one lurks until they see their buddy show up.

            I do not read chucky’s posts closely. he just p*sses me off, so i steer away from him. how has his personality changed?

          • Llips don’t lie

            Not as “nice ”
            Picked on locvus grammar and mocked him for being foreign
            Smh
            Just being a real prick in his replies
            Straight up dismissive of cold hard stats
            And just ott over harden and others
            ..even more than usual

            Idk, but I sense a different person

          • Phonow

            Chucky boy is showing his true nature. His real self shows up when lin has a bad game, or when lin is benched. Like every other troll there– very opportunistic. They rub it in when linfans are frustrated.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Felt creeped out when he changed his avatar to Charlie brown (snoopys owner ) after I mocked him for his shaq one
            Now it’s changed again

            The old place is unbearable this morning
            That bd troll is just plain nasty
            And they all have so much energy to write such long posts
            dd is on daddy / daughter date , no supa hero to defend lin

          • Phonow

            lol! ellis has daddy wrapped around her little finger. :)

            chucky plays weird games. wish the mod would ban him… and luddell… and B.D. and and and.

            darn. i need to get ready for hot date w/hubbie. he has a strange sense of time. half an hour early is being late. :o

  • Llips don’t lie

    So I clicked on te smiths song that day from one of your post
    Regretted it cuz it made me miserable, lol
    But I enjoyed the melody and appreciate the well written lyrics

    Don’t know much about them or morisey
    This morning I saw an interview he did with Larry king on yt
    Quite interesting

    • dd

      i watched that a while back. dun remember what he said though. too long ago. misery or not, his music makes a lasting impression although many of his songs sound similar. and, it’s good to listen when you’re already miserable as misery wants company.

      • Llips don’t lie

        Found myself agreeing with the things he said
        He disarmed me too
        But probably very cranky to hang out with lol

        What he said about Obama was what people said in private ..

  • Llips don’t lie
    • dd

      reason why lin has to be “hidden” by the nba.

      • Llips don’t lie

        that’s why it was a double edged sword for lin not to take all those linsanity endorsements. You have to take what you’re worth. who cares if you had to hawk Kikkoman. u take what’s yours. everyone does. you have to demonstrate your market value.

        • Phonow

          if harden can hawk gummy worms, then lin can endorse kikkoman.

          • Llips don’t lie

            aint no shame in hawking anything, even condoms (Christ endorsed ones?) lol. rose is selling pizzas in Chicago, haha
            and since u like the youtube thing so much, collab with your Asian ‘bros’
            here is where I depart with KH who said roger helped lin.
            not really.
            he really held Lin back especially with his advice to Lin to just be grateful that he had a job in Houston when his (roger’s) job was on the line.
            simply out of his depths in dealing with sharks like morey/ alexander

          • Phonow

            i think that lin’s faith held him back from cashing in on his fame. the camel through the eye of a needle parable. then again, lin could have cashed in, and donated everything to his church. lol

            i hate when people say just be grateful you have a job. jezuus. it is like telling an abused woman to just be grateful you have a husband.

          • Llips don’t lie

            bad bad move in my mind. you simply had to take that money. exactly. too much for u? give it to Steven chen (church pastor) LOL
            What Lin and his team demonstrated was a lack of understanding of how things work and how precarious Lin’s position in nba was/ is. They thought he finally made it. NO, linsanity got his foot in the door. Now to stay there, grab all those endorsements, so nba is kinda FORCED to deal with you LIKE a supastar and HAVE TO promote u like one. You will be worth too much.
            just bad bad business advice from roger. smh big time.

            and telling Lin to be grateful??
            exactly.
            I wanted to kick roger’s butt
            what??
            and lin actted like he helped him
            (picture rolled eyes)

          • Phonow

            totally agree. he thought that he “made it,” and could be choosy about forming his “brand.” No cliched asian brands. there is nothing wrong with forming your “brand” but realize the opportunity may never come again.

          • Llips don’t lie

            That’s one of the drawbacks of having too many people from your own family or church or “spiritual concerns” on your team. You need real business advice. YES it’s fine to pray but damn it, the guy better be cut throat.

          • dd

            but lin did the documentary thing. wise choice?

          • Llips don’t lie

            too soon
            came off as holier than thou
            and honestly wtf was that when the reason for your fame was not even solidified
            another bad bad move
            and I didn’t like the movie

          • dd

            ditto.

            trolls stopped replying. they are regrouping?

            the others sound like rocket fans

            i don’t know who wesley is. there’s a bws94 on lakerground.

        • dd

          true, lin probably shot himself in the foot when declining endorsements.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I told my dad and he was like, slapping his forehead “what the f- is his team doing???”

            does he do endorsements?

            no I ask for business advice

    did you see this? jl.mod told off KH: (hornet at Bucks thread)

    KHuang jcsantos 6 days ago

    A glue guy in the NBA is usually a guy that cannot score, Battier being the prime example.

    Linis a glue guy that can score BIG, albeit he only scores when he’s off
    balance or under pressure. And that usually happens when Lin is at point
    guard as an off balance shooter as opposed to a shooting guard when he
    has his feet set.

    The only flaw Lin has in his game is his messed up shooting form that he learned from Doc Scheppler.

    Right now, I’m concerned that Doc’s coaching will send Lin into a major shooting slump especially from the free throw line.

    jeremylinfan1 Mod KHuang 6 days ago

    You sound like Colin. Saying the same thing over an over. All you can
    do is blame Doc. You have no clue about shooting. You thought his dad
    taught him to shoot. You ever see his dad play? Dad know’s nothing about
    shooting except loves the game. Stop spewing your misinformed made up
    stuff. Doc has been trying to change ingrained bad habits he built up
    over years and has had steady improvements up until this year. JLin is
    the one who decided to change his form slightly to use his legs less and
    have a quicker lower release like Curry. So stop making things up when
    you have no clue.

    • dd

      khuang is worried his prediction that lin will become a gunner will be ruined by doc.

      plus, people are saying curry shoots like a girl. so, who else but doc the girls team coach to teach lin how to shoot.

      • Phonow

        ellis shoots like a girl.

        btw… llips & i are on yo site.

        • Llips don’t lie

          Lin shoots like he can’t shoot
          lol
          I hate his form
          even his knees were knocking together from a few days ago, shudder

          • Phonow

            haha. if the ball goes in, it is all gud. :)

          • Llips don’t lie

            it’s about having a consistent move. your natural stroke on the court
            and having it be automatic and not random

          • Phonow

            don’t think, just shoot.

            sigh. i have to do errands. argh. see you all later.

          • Llips don’t lie

            it’s alright.
            ttyl
            byee

            exactly. youre’ right
            at the moment, Lin is fixing the “just shoot” part
            and looks like he’s breaking it down too damn much too
            :/

            If I were him, I’ll use this opportunity to cut loose from Doc and just use the CHA coaches
            especially that one old man he’s like some shooting legend, now that Nurse is unavailable
            that he hired nurse tells me he knows something’s not right in the first place with Doc’s training

            I will not post here until the mod cleans up this TROLL INFESTED site.

            oh.

            nevermind.

          • dd

            his form is so screwed up. probably favoring his not injured appendage.

          • Llips don’t lie

            yes there’s some compensation going on
            but like KH, I don’t think Doc is helping that much
            On lin’s part he’s been using this david nurse who was flying in monthly? for tune ups before he took up perm position with the nets.
            noticed he shot well when the guy was there

          • dd

            i don’t know whether doc helps lin regarding his form. but, he’s probably hurting lin by making lin focus on his shots too much. he shoots best when he doesn’t focus on his shot.

    • Llips don’t lie

      okada and Doc are friends

      • Phonow

        oh yeah, forgot about that.

    I hope ur account is secure.
    when the site is too lively
    all of a sudden, okada has a lot of time to kill the fun

    • Phonow

      • Llips don’t lie

        maybe I remembered wrongly, lol

        • Phonow

          • dd

    took a quick read at the other forum. the trolls are trying their damnest to isolate carmelo from other black people in the nba.

    • Llips don’t lie

      Had to be judicious in replying. A lot of expert trolls
      Crazy how alleged lin fans can deny the outright racism
      Oh rudi guy is a bitter ex Taiwanese
      Who’s denying racism
      Lol
      He was okay till this set him off

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        everyone’s a little racist. nuts that the blacks are defending the idea that racism doesn’t exist in the nba.

        • Llips don’t lie

          I’m not offended at all.
          I love c.r.
          Lollll
          Didn’t watch the dumb award show
          But how can anyone NOT git the joke? ????

  • Llips don’t lie

    The more i think about it
    The more I think how f-brilliant and brave of cr
    I hope to meet him now

    This man realllly gets it

    • dd

      he’s a comedian with a soul

  • Llips don’t lie

    Good thing you came over
    Was about to leave

  • Llips don’t lie

    Can we talk about how brilliant Cohen and rock are? ???

    • dd

      who’s cohen?

      • Llips don’t lie

        Sacha baron

        • dd

          oh i didn’t see his skit

          • Llips don’t lie

            Me neither
            Just read the report

          • dd

            just saw it. yup he’s in on it with chris.

  • Llips don’t lie

    Satire / sarcasm flew over lin’s harvard head

    The fact he got so riled up …
    Yep race is ALWAYS on his mind

    • dd

      i suspect he’s the judast to chris’ christ

      • Llips don’t lie

        Explain

        • dd

          judast was supposedly jesus’ most loyal disciple but he was framed by jesus’ not so loyal disciple. jeremy had to instigate the hater to chris rock’s “flat” joke.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Lin’s clueless
            He’s taking it as straight humor
            And getting offended

          • dd

            haha he plays it straight but his wit is downplayed quite a bit.

          • Llips don’t lie

            But he didn’t get this

            His sense of humour is pretty infantile

          • dd

            maybe it’s the male/female perspective. but, i believe he’s much smarter than i am and if i got it then he would’ve. not only that, i think jeremy was in on the joke.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Big no there
            He’s richer not smarter
            Wut? ??

            Would be too brilliant for words if so

            BTW love what u wrote. The big nba talk piece
            Almost as good as my rikki’s

          • dd

            usmarine is right though. a wall of text that no one read haha.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Don’t worry
            People will be using what you wrote in their posts

            Kh is very good at this
            “Stole” my stuff too

          • dd

            he predicted this years ago

          • Llips don’t lie

            Strangely aggressive about being proven right

  • Llips don’t lie

    Gosh I love the jew and black ie
    Hahaha
