Writer’s block is the greatest side effect of boredom…

Sometimes the words just won’t come. We’ve all had it, writer’s block, brain fart or what have you. Usually, on those days I amuse you with pictures of my dogs. Sometimes, I make a “Do you know…?” list. Those are always fun. As you can see, I’ve done both of those this week. Yeah, major brain farts going on here in Austin.

CGMan and I have been dieting, so I have no good recipes to share with you. Because let’s face it, how exciting is dinner with no appetizers, no bread, no dipping sauce, no cheese sauce over the veggies and no dessert? I’ll tell you…not very! Sharing recipes of baked fish (sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning) and steamed broccoli (steam until tender) is just not as exciting as recipes for buckeyes, tiered cheese and chicken pot pie. 

Speaking of yummy appetizers, the annual Halloween party is next week. I’m having a tough time finding something to make that is as noteworthy as the eyeball cupcakes from last year. And no, I can’t make those again because now everyone knows there’s an eyeball inside! I have a couple of ideas, but would welcome any others. Share with me any treats you’ve made for Halloween. Not too gory, though, we’re not that kind of Halloween party. We also have our costumes organized. You’ll have to wait, though, because that will be a post of its own.

CGMan hasn’t suffered any ill effects from having his wisdom teeth pulled. He was eating that night (against doctor’s advice, I might add) and even went to the gym yesterday (also against doctor’s advice!) The gym thing didn’t work out so well for him, though, so he just took it easy for the rest of the day. Thank you all for your well wishes for him.

Since I don’t really have anything to talk about today, I’ll end with some burning questions that have been plaguing me:

Why do dogs roll on dead crickets?
Why is it men some people can put a dish in the sink, but not the dishwasher?
Why don’t children call their mothers every day more often?
How is it that dogs never step in dog poop?
Did Adam & Eve have a belly button?
Why is it that anyone who is driving faster than CGMan is an idiot and anyone driving slower than him is a moron?


  1. Uh oh, you know not to mention wisdom teeth stories, right? Let me find find it for you.

    If you just want to watch the wisdom tooth part, skip to 1:00.

    By the way, I got dry socket in two of my wisdom teeth extractions. My face swelled up and I looked kind of like a dude because I had really short cropped hair. Later on, I put one of the pictures of myself on Hot Or as a dude, and I got a SEVEN!

  2. "How is it that dogs never step in dog poop?"

    That my friend, may be one of the great questions of our time! I suspect that it relates to the seldom asked question, why do people never step in people poop?


  3. I want to know how schools and fish and flocks of birds never run into each other. It's been weighing on my mind for quite some time now.

  4. My dog rolls on dead worms. What the hell is enticing them to find dead, creepy, crawly things and then roll all over them? And he has to make sure he grinds it way in, so his legs are flailing all over like a two bit floozy.

  5. Glad CGMan survived, even though he tried NOT TO by going to the gym and doing things he was told not to. Actually I'm the same way. ;-)

    I have some of the same burning questions. And why do people spend a fortune on fancy dog treats when dogs like to eat any kind of poop they find?

  6. The Man is not any good at staying down when he's sick or recovering either. What could be better than hanging on the couch watching TV all day? Why would ANYONE leave that? On purpose!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
