We Want It Now! (The Dog's Uprising)

It's a right wing consiracy I tell ya!
By those liberal dogs wanting human food. I own a lil pug dog. Or should I say he owns me. Little did I know he was plotting behind my back, day in and day out, spreading the word to all those of his kind to rise up against their owners in order to be fed tastier food! Well they've managed to overcome the establishment!I now give the lil snot dog more human food. But I do still feed him the dry stuff with it. After all, I am the Mommy, right?

(This is in response to the the dog food being recalled. In case any of ya were wondering if I flipped my lid...No, just flipped the finger at those companies who were dumb enough to keep their high profits in mind and purchase ingredients for the food from China, where no standards or inpections are required).


Five Things I'm Grateful for Today:
1) Sunshine on my shoulders, (makes me happy.....)
2) Yoga (being able to do it that is) (still trying for those headstands tho!)
3) Shedding of the winter coat
4) Light when I get home from work
5) Giving smiles out to those who don't have them

Happy Monkey Monday!

Speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil, hide no evil...hehe.

Happy Monkey Monday!

I got so busy this weekend I didn't even sit down to do a post here. And now it's time for Monkey Monday already! Time flies when you're having fun. Hope your weekend was wonderful. At least it's starting to warm up here and the sun was shining. Was great for my spirits. I was outside all weekend....soaking up the sunshine. It's not that warm for the beach, mind you, but in the 50's. I'll take it over snow and ice. Soon I'll be complaining of the hot weather.

I was looking over my site meter last week to see what the Google searches turned up and here are some I found. For those of you who don't know, they are search words that people typed into Google and were found somewhere in my blog, ;-d.

United Arab Emirates: "romantic words starting with the letter 'b' "....ok, not so bad..

Oklahoma, BakersFields Oil Field: "happy dance emoticons"....I suppose they were bored or unhappy.

Belgium: "dododododododo".....either they were searching for the theme song from the Twilight Zone or had to poop.

Quebec: "peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite"....Uh oh...terrorists across the border!!!!!!

Wisconsin: "artificially inseminating and elephant".......ummm...isn't Barnum and Bailey's Headquarters located there?????? Glad I could be of help!

Missouri: "hire people with hooks"....I wonder if this was a head hunter looking for a one armed CEO. hehe.

Toledo, Ohio: "nude beach".....Holy Toledo!!!!!!!!

Happy Monkey Monday All.

Snot Dog Day

"Is it Spring yet?"

OK..I promise I won't complain about the snow after today...It's starting to warm up a bit and the snow is finally melting and soon I'll be able to wear my Spring clothes...
I made the bed the yesterday and the lil snot dog managed to get his snoutless lil face under the covers and pawed them down, then got stuck under them. I just stood there and waited for him to surface....and there he is!

Ode to Spring

Ode To Spring

Spring has sprung......but where is it?
There's ice outside my door N'shit.
I still wear my boots and scarf
My dog still whines and goes arf arf.

My heart is heavy and I'm depressed
Because I'm still overdressed
Let me shed my coat and shed my gloves
And give me weather that I loves....

Someday soon I will see Spring
Until that day I'll try and sing
An uplifting song I love so well....
Winter, you can go to hell.
(I feel better now...hehe)

Silly Joke Day

Your Emoticon is Sad

You're feeling a tad depressed right now. It will likely pass soon, but for now, you need some major cheering up!

Uh oh...must be from cabin fever!!! I just cheered myself up when I read this joke, so y'all don't have to worry about me. Hehe.


A mother and father take their 6-year old son to a nude beach in
Miami. As the boy walks along the sand, he notices that many of
the women have boobs bigger than his mother's, so he goes back
to ask her why.

She tells her son, "The bigger they are, the sillier the lady is."

The boy, pleased with the answer, goes to play in the ocean but
returns to tell his mother that many of the men have larger things
than his dad does.

She replies, "The bigger THEY are, the dumber the man is."

Again satisfied with her answer, the boy goes back to the ocean to

Shortly thereafter, the boy returns again, and promptly tells his

"Daddy is talking to the silliest lady on the beach, and the longer
he talks, the dumber he gets."

5 Things I'm Grateful for Today:

1) Ability to be silly

2) Great cheeseburgers

3) Loving friends

4) Warm sunshine that melts snow

5) Clear starry nights

Happy Monkey Monday

That's me in my snow suit, by the way. hehe.

I spent most part of the weekend digging out of iced snow. A "little" storm passed through on Friday (while I was trying to Happy Dance too. Was more like Happy Ice Skating!) Lots of snow, wind, sleet, rain, then snow and ice and it ended with one big frozen piece of ice -like frozen you couldn't even make a snow ball or snowman. And to think two days before that it was 77 degrees! So Sunday I had cabin fever. Just had to get on on the road. The roads were a little bit of a mess. Snow started to melt so there were ponds of puddles. That sounds like a good title of a poem, "Ponds of Puddles". Maybe I'll get to that some day. Anyway the sun was shining, which was a good thing. That alone lifted my spirits. And I didn't get to make corned beef and cabbage on Saturday...I'll do it next weekend. I celebrate my birthday and St. Patty's Day all month anyway.

Sunday Sillies

Some silly facts you really don't need to know:

Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.
Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, or purple.

Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur.

John Lennon's first girlfriend was named Thelma Pickles.

The only real person to be a Pez head was Betsy Ross.

The characters Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street were named after Bert the cop and Ernie the taxi driver in Frank Capra's "Its A Wonderful Life."

And there you have it...Sunday Sillies.

Snot Dog Snores But I Still Love Him

This is not my pug in the video, but I just wanted to share that this is the sound I go to sleep with every night....I'm so used to it now that I find it soothing. Yes, I'm weird...but I love my lil snot dog!!! and he can snore all he wants to. That's him up there in the photo...I tried to put those lil boots on him so he wouldn't hurt his paws on the rock salt. They only stayed on his lil paws long enough for me to take that pic.


Gratitude List:
1)Pug dogs
2)Wagging tails
4)Warm days

A Couple of Bloggers Breaking Bread

Exactly one week ago today, I had the pleasure of meeting up and breaking bread with the famous blogging couple, Crankster and Misanthropster But I didn't get to meet lil George. They look nothing like their South Park avatars, even tho they'd like you to believe they do. (Well maybe just a little). Poor Mis was just getting over the "ick" and couldn't speak too loudly, if at all. So the Crankster did all the talking. I just wanted to let everyone know how very sweet they were. (and polite too!). Maybe because it was our first meeting and first impressions count and all that.
But I just find it so wild that this blog space here has brought me together with fellow bloggers that I would have otherwise not have ever known about and here we are, meeting up and exchanging pleasantries and sharing a meal and some laughs. It was so great! Actually Crank and Mis are the second and third bloggers who I've met. I also met up with my blogging idol, Boondoggled last summer as she whizzed by here on her way to Scotland.
I'm hoping I get to see Mis again when she can at least I'm sure I will. And if anyone else is coming to or thru NYC, give me shout!

Why is that elephant smiling?

Would you save an elephant??????????

I don't really think I would want this job...would you?????? Hehe

MASTURBATING an elephant in the cause of science isn’t an easy job – just ask wildlife expert Dr Thomas Hildebrandt.
Just touching a jumbo penis – they measure more than 1.5metres when aroused – can have painful consequences as German scientist Dr Hildebrandt reveals.
He said: “One guy I know got a black eye from being hit by an elephant’s penis.
“When you touch an elephant there it starts to flick backwards and forwards and it’s so strong it can knock you off your feet. It’s such a strong movement.”
Dr Hildebrandt, a world expert on elephant and rhino reproduction demonstrates how it should be done in BBC2’s Horizon: The Elephant’s Guide To Sex screened on March 20.
His mission is to help endangered species get into the mood for love and give them a hand - quite literally – to boost their dwindling populations.
In the programme, he bids to help elephants Jackson and Christy – who lives in US zoos 1,200 miles apart – to produce a baby.
It’s a messy business as he massages Jackson’s prostate gland to produce 300ml of semen per orgasm – the equivalent of a can of Coke – which has to be airlifted in giant condoms across America to Christy.
Artificially inseminating an elephant is just as messy – while a catheter is inserted into the cervix, the hapless scientist faces being pooed on.
All the mess is worth it to Dr Hildebrandt who said: “Lots of mammals are facing extinction and artificial insemination is very helpful in saving species.
“Man has created this annihilation of species; it’s up to man to use his ingenuity to save them.”
The programme will also look at the problem of getting semen from a sedated rare northern white rhino and viewers will meet killer whale Shamu who is only too happy to provide sperm samples in the name of science when his trainer shows him a special collection bag.

Peace and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aches, Lunch, Sex

Speaking of pains...which I'm not but I read a lot about pain and fellow bloggers being ill and all, I woke up this weekend with my knee all swollen. For the life of me I can't recall if I did anything to cause it. (but if I did, I would have remembered that!) It's the same knee I had the cartiledge removed from 20 years ago! I just hope it's not starting to disintergrate or No pain, just swelling. Oh well...I'll just watch it and see what happens. I have been putting ice on it and that helps.

So we round the bend of Monday and made it to Tuesday.
Today...I'm having lunch today with fellow bloggers who are in NYC, Cranky Old Bastard and his nice wife, Misanthropster....(not their real names, their blogging names...which I'm sure you were able to figure out without me telling you...cause you guys are so smart!). I'll write a post about it tomorrow.....I hope.

On another note, I saw this story yesterday and if this is what it takes to live to be a ripe old age, I want no part of it, thank you very much.

What do you think????

HONG KONG - A 107-year-old Hong Kong villager, who still enjoys an occasional smoke, has attributed his longevity in part to decades of sexual abstinence, a newspaper reported Sunday.
"I don't know why I have lived this long," Chan Chi — one of Hong Kong's oldest people — was quoted as saying in the South China Morning Post during an annual feast for the city's elders.
"Maybe it has to do with the fact that I have lived a sex-less life for many years — since I was 30," said Chan, a widower whose youthful bride perished during the Japanese invasion in World War Two.

When I just typed "if I had a monkey" , I started to sing.....If I had a monkey, I'd monkey in the morning, I'd monkey in the evening, all over the land....lalala....(is that wrong?) hehe.

Mishmash Sunday

I began to get Spring fever yesterday. It was up in the mid 60's on Saturday. Yippie! Went for a walk by the water wishing for summer. Also saw the lunar ecslipse last night. Very cool.
Seems like only yesterday I was hoping for the first snow. Oh well. Today it's in the l.ow 30's. So much for my spring fever.

Here's a cute joke my friend Roll emailed to me:


A little old lady is walking down the street, dragging two plastic garbage bags, one in each hand.

There's a hole in one of the bags, and once in a while a $20 bill flies out of it onto the pavement.

Noticing this, a policeman stops her."Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag..."

"Damn!" says the little old lady....."I'd better go back and see if I can find some of them. Thanks for the warning!"

"Well, now, not so fast," says the cop. "How did you get all that money? Did you steal it?"

"Oh, no"!, says the little old lady. "You see, my back yard backs up to the parking lot of the football stadium. Each time there's a game, a lot of fans come and pee in the bushes, right into my flower beds!"

So, I go and stand behind the bushes with a big hedge clipper, and each time someone sticks his thingie through the bushes, I say: '$20 or off it comes!' "

"Hey, not a bad idea!" laughs the cop.

"Good luck!" By the way, what's in the other bag?"

"Well", says the little old lady, "Not all of them pay." Hehe
Gratitude list:
1) Moon shadows
2) Laughing like a hyena
3) Clean sheets
4) Clean car
5) Sunshine

Funny Saturday

Animals' Revenge


Friday, March 02, 2007



It's been a real fun week for me,
In spite that I've been monkey-free!
Green light days occurred all week,
And now it's time for Happy Feet!!!!

This mushroom walked into a dance club and asked this girl to dance.
She replied, "Are you kidding? You are a mushroom!!"
And the mushroom replied, "Oh come on. I am a FUN GUY!!"

What do you call a one legged dancer? Eileen

Now dance your way to the weekend!!!!

A Little Bit of This N That, N shit.

So far, so good....another green light day!!! WooHoo....I think it's just my time. At least for two days! I deserve it. Way to go!

My question of the day is this: Why do middle aged women try and dress like they're 20? It just not right. We have someone in our office who is close to 60 who wears super mini skirts, fishnet shouldered shirts (yes in winter too!) . This woman was the cause of our revising our dress code. Do you think anyone enforces it????? NOOOOOOOOO. So tomorrow I'm wearing my pajamas! That'll teach em!

That brings me to another subject of dress. We have "casual" Friday dress here. The other days we're to look presentable (that being what? don't really know, but I guess they know it when they see it). Anyway, I'm not really a fan of casual Fridays. Not that I don't like to dress a little casual. But when I do, I feel like I'm not supposed to be working. I should just be hanging out.

Oh well.....that's all I have to say today.
