Tired Pups.

Every night I square off in a battle royale with my wife and our two dogs for valuable space on our queen sized bed. While Miles (Sheltie) is usually ejected early on in the night (we can hear him tap dancing on the floor trying to jockey for a position to launch himself back into the match) Owen has proved to be a worthy opponent and lasts into the early morning before he finally relents from my kicking legs and heads for the floor. He has taken to low key growling if I try to move him while he sleeps, but I growl back and he gives in and licks my face. Regardless of the winner, we always have tired pups in the morning.

Giving the thanks

Amongst the many things I’m thankful for (my beautiful wife, family, babyfoo, home and best dogs) if you want to talk creature comforts, I’m most thankful for our water softener. Soft water is truly a special gift. My father-in-law found our water softener for $85(getting the seller down from $150), did the installation and necessary troubleshooting to get it running properly. He’s handy and for that I’m thankful, too.

Make it so

Um, not much to write about. I had a big 12 oz. steak and fries for dinner tonight, medium, so I’m feeling a bit loggy. Thought I would surf, post blog links and digest this food.

Remember Wesley from Star Trek the Next Generation? Ok, so you don’t, but I do and his blog rules. Actual content. Wowy Zowy!

Journal Genie
Analyzes your blog and immediately (as if anything is done later on the web) responds with entertaining and insightful comments about your emotions. Too bad you have to go through the pain of registering for a free trial to find out what you already know. You’re a terrible writer and an emotional time bomb waiting to explode. Nice cliche’.

I like the nuts in the background. Nice touch.

Celebrity Blog Links

I turned my attention back to the celeblog and thought I would just provide the link site instead of picking my favorites out and posting each one. One thing about celebrity blogs though, they don’t like to update, at all. Maybe because they actually have a life and all the stuff that goes along with it. Example from the No Doubt blog:

Hello all,

I realize that I have not posted in some time, for this I am sorry. I am also sorry on behalf of the band to all of the people that did not get into, or that saw only part of the hyndai pavillion show. For the people that did see the show, I feel that this was maybe the best L.A. Show ever for some of us. It was truly an epic experience.

Anyway, I am currently on tour now doing some bow wow wow shows this month. It is a bit strange to go from the no doubt tour straight to this tour, but it is a healthy dichotomy for me.
Anyway, we would like to thank all that came to see the greatest hits tour this summer. All of you truly keep us going.

Adrian practically phones this one in. Apologize to the fans, promote the new tour, talk a little about music and thank the fans. He also throws in the fifty cent word “dichotomy” to show everyone he has a vocabulary. Brainy and rockin’!

Oh yeah, I really like Melanie Griffith’s blog. It’s truly awesome. Make sure you have your volume up.

Well, that’s it for now. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
