It Snowed !!!

Liza loves the snow. We have to close her dog door after a snowstorm otherwise she practices hockey-stops around the yard until she is one giant furry snowball and will sleep outside in a snowbank at night.

Shot the Dog

Liza was due this month for her annual immunization update. Her and I both get excited about going to the vet. She thinks it's a social party and I like seeing people stick her with sharp objects.


Thankfully, the rabies is only due every three years from here on out, and the rest can be done without the $45 office visit. Always like it when the mutt saves me money (which is rare :(


Of course as soon as got back home she took care of the whole 'saving my money' bit by practicing her impressive DVD disassembly technique. Next visit I'm requesting bigger needles.

I Have a Superpower !!!

I have the amazing ability to re-gift items and events to myself!

Aimee would say I just have a bad memory, but that's just calling the glass half empty. In reality, I have spent years honing my ability to completely erase memories from my mind.

For example: Today I pulled out my Nook eReader to read my latest purchase, only to find that I had forgotten to download it. Having a WiFi only Nook, I was out of luck :( Strangely though, when I tried to update my library, it succeeded! A little more checking and I found that I have a 3G Nook rather than a WiFi only! WOOT!

Without my superpower it would have been just another humdrum download, but thanks to my amazing powers of Re-Gifting, I received a brand new 3G Nook! Totally glass half full!

Conversations with Avyrlie

Me: Do you love all the holidays?

Avyrlie: No. I just don't like Christmas. It's too wintery and cold and snowy.

Me: You don't like winter?

Avyrlie: I just love Spring. Do you love spring?

Me: No.

Avyrlie with a quivering lower lip: Why not. The sun comes out, and the flowers are everywhere.

Me: I don't like the sun. It's too warm. I don't like flowers because they raise my water bill.

Avyrlie with tears in her eyes: Tell me you are just lying.

Me: I'm not lying.

Avyrlie running from the room and sobbing: You should be lying or EVERYTHING WILL BE TERRIBLE!!!
