Mr. Bigglesworth

Bowie got a stylin' new haircut. I'm sure she's happy either way but her shedding is just off the charts. Call us cruel, but she looks adorable. She always reminds me of Mr. Bigglesworth when we pick her up from the groomer. As a husky she has a dual coat. So the top coat is very thick and coarse hair. The hair you see in the pic is very soft like down. She's so cuddly!

This is a Bowie's-eye-view of our kitchen, btw.

the afternoon

Our backyard has a lemon tree, pool, hot tub, and outdoor cooking area. It's still too chilly to enjoy most of that just yet. Even if it is Arizona. The pool is on the other side of the fence-- I'm not sure what Bowie is fixated with. It's easy to fall asleep out here during the afternoon when I'm laying in the sun with a sweater on.

Christmas 2011

Merry Christmas. It took forever to get Bowie to cooperate and make this pic happen.

boxes everywhere

Our tree is just a little table top guy this year because we actually just moved into a new house. More about that later.

The tree isn't much bigger than the menorah and is engulfed by "too-large-for-such-a-small-tree" ornaments. We'll pick up a fake one on clearance after the holidays are over. Trimming a tree is kind of the last thing I want to do right now anyway-- there are boxes everywhere. Plus who hates saving money?

drunk when I shouldn't have been

I always thought Snooki had an "e." I laughed at the time, but now I wish I would have bought this. I can't deny that I watch the shore. It intrigues me. At the end of the day it's just a show about people that belong to a different circle or culture than myself. I guess that's why I find it interesting.

It's easy to laugh at these kids and call them idiots, but they're just people too. I'd probably say and do stupid things if I was living my golden years in front of a camera. I've been drunk when I shouldn't have been and gotten into a very public argument or two. I'm not a better person and they're not any less.

Wow. Christmas makes me very compassionate.
