I have many issues, pressing issues of our time, to get to today. My dogs' playdate, and yes the word "playdate" irritates me; the winnah of the caption contest; the new comment of the week; my fancy nomination for best blog; and I forget what else. See?
Too much stuff. All of it stupid. I know there's something else, and can I remember it?
So, first of all, that caption contest Saturday with the picture of Edsel and his puppy friend Penny made me miss Penny. I should have kidapped her when I puppysat her last fall. Because a Penny saved is a Penny earned. God, I'm annoying.
So I invited Penny over, along with, you know, her owner, TinaDoris. TinaDoris is having a mimosa. Well, I guess she had guzzled said mimosa at this point, as her glass looks empty.
Here. That was a link to October, so you can go back in time. Alternatively, here's a photo from that day.
After a spell, my adult dogs started to seem like they were getting a tad logy. And guess who was NOT logy? Guess who was the anti-logy? Was it Penny? Was she still leaping from dog to dog, doing the bowing let's-play thing? Did she even try to engage Iris in play?
Please note on your calendars. March 4, 2012. The first time Iris got all Halloween-looking and hissed.
Last night ...friend was over and it was like I didn't even HAVE dogs. They went to the door to wag at him and then we never saw those dogs again. Tallulah went to bed and Edsel went to angry chair. It was sort of fabulous.
Anyway. Playdate. Annoying word, successful outcome.
Speaking of Edsel and Penny, I have the big winner of the caption contest.
Yes, Furry Godmother is the big winner. Would you like a "Despair" pennant, Furry? I saw it on the same site that sells my inflatable toast and it cracked me up.
Honorable mention goes to Sadie, who had about 87 different captions, all of them hilarious. Inflatable toast or bacon floss for you, Sadie?
And thank you all for participating.
Oh, and comment of the week goes to d-lou. She was excited I used the word "debaucle." For some reason it just cracked me up.
There. Did I remember everything? Oh, crap, no. See? Too much stuff.
When TinaDoris was here she said, "Your blog was nominated for Best Blog of the Triad in Yes Weekly." I was all, it was? So sure enough I went on there and it has been nominated along with Yes Weekly's blog. Don't you think everyone will just go on there and vote for Yes Weekly's blog? I have no chance in hell. Anyway, here is the link. It is a pain. You have to sign in, then go to the "Media" category, and find me under the Best Blog category.
I understand I am hardly worth all that effort. But thank you, if you do vote for me. I will be RICH! FAMOUS! Or...MENTIONED IN A LOCAL MAGAZINE! Whichever.
Okay, I have to copy edit 394959394 pages today, so I will chat at you later. You will find me at the end of this day hiding with my head on the corner of the couch.
