I absolutely use a "voice" when speaking to and on behalf of my dog. The best was this conversation with some dude at the dog park once:

Dude to my dog: "You can't hold two balls in your mouth at once"
Me on behalf of my dog: "Oh yes I can! I have a very big mouth!"
Dude to me: (long pause and weird look)



oh well smile at least I'm not the only nutbar out there!

I generally enjoy cats and my guy would definitely have one if we could (I'm not ready to make a 20 year commitment to living in this country, let alone in a place that allows cats), so you're not entirely alone Shadow.

If I could have any pet in the world, I'd have some sheep. I love them in all forms: lambs, ewes, rams, lampchops, wool mittens, little chocolate-chip shaped turds---all things sheep-related. Alas, however, I don't foresee living anywhere with sheep in the near future, although I do plan to go to New Zealand to work so maybe, perhaps, it will work out? Who needs more experience in archives when I can be a shepherd?

Interesting that someone mentioned child-free flights a few pages back. I think that would be very popular (just as I'm sure explicitly child-centric flights would be ... so, I dunno, the flight attendants would dress up as clowns or something?).

We're cat people! We have 3, even with my allergies! They suit our lifestyle. Our schedules are wonky and we tend to run away on the weekends. The cats seem to deal with that pretty well. I would not own a dog because I would feel like a bad fur parent seeing we are away from home so long each day. Mind you, one of our cats thinks he's a dog.

The candy store I frequent (frequently) has doggie ice cream that can be ordered during the summer (no ice cream at all during the winter, I believe). I'm not so sure that that's what a dog should be fed but they eat poop. Plus, I know that candy and ice cream are not so much what I should be fed either so who am I to judge? Except chocolate---I kinda get judgey about decent quantities of chocolate and dogs. Especially because that's that much less chocolate in the world for me (how's that for self-entitled?).

In my experience, chocolate isn't as bad as people think.

DH's dog once ate a grocery bag FULL of Hershey kisses (foil and all) without the slightest issue. It was the day before Valentine's and I had bought chocolate for the work social club, and left it by the front door to remember to bring it in the morning. DH and I were newly dating, and went to the bedroom early wink and when I got up for a glass of water, I found the empty bag. The poop in the back yard for the next week or so was all twinkly with bits of foil. whistleold

My little dog used to share chocolate chip cookies with me.

My old dog once got into my little sister's easter basket and gobbled up a TON of chocolate. She literally gorged herself until sis stumbled upon the scene of the carnage. The end result? Some funny business out the back end for a few days, which I'm confident was more due to the foil wrappers and basket grass (a surprising amount) than the chocolate itself.

My sister took the whole situation much harder than the dog did.

My cats have both eaten a bit of chocolate, but generally thumb their noses up at it anyway. Darn picky eaters. I should just be happy they love dry cat food so much.

And neither of my cats will accept ham. Go figure. The only human food they seem to really go for is the dairy. Well, except Meiko, who loves vegetables - but not as food. In fact, her favorite toy is a snap pea.

With chocolate it's the type of chocolate, milk isn't near as bad as dark. The purer the chocolate the worse it is for them.

You know, our family dog Tigger, she ate a ton of people food, liked to drink Coke (hated Diet Coke, could tell the difference), always got scraps from the drive-thru (Arby's once gave her a bag of meat laugh more in the bag than on my sandwich!!) and she lived to 19 years old. Had a cast iron stomach that one. Maggie, we feed her a rawhide, she pukes.

I've got a headache today..I think I used up all my funny yesterday and am suffering because of it. Either that or it was too much wine. I'll go with option one, used up all my funny.

Frick I wish it was Friday.

I need more coffee...with side of Excedrin.

I'm going to put up plum/purple and silver flower wall paper, paint the rest of the room the matching colour...I've got all white furniture in it...and in there...I've got all my craft stuff, all my favourite trinkets, baubles, hats, scarves and computer desk. grin Have my Audrey Hepburn & Marilyn Monroe pictures on order and I get to girly the crap out of that room and DH has absolutely no say. grin I've even got a sign that says "The Princess is in". laugh

Love that paper! smile

I can't find the paper I want online, it's at Rona, but their website is so freakin' hard to figure out somedays and doesn't have all their stuff in it.

I let DH pick out the paint/paper for his man cave, zero input whatsoever...and man was THAT hard to let go for me being the designer control freak I am. laugh Never in a millions years would have guessed that he'd pick it. It's very "smoking room" kind of paper with a dark olive green. I veto'd nothing. laugh I thought he'd go for a brick paper and then rust walls or something. But this reminds me of victorian library/den/smoking room.

That's hilarious, MrsMuffin!!

Interesting about the Rona website, tojules. Grouping things for an IKEA website was one of our mini-projects for my records management course. It was partner work and I couldn't believe how different the groupings were between us. She only had three groups (I had 8) and she put the swingset under "Sports". It was so bizarre. And I suppose relates to the posting from MrsMuffin, too. Ohhh, congruence!

I've actually got great curtains for my Diva Room...They're silver wide stripe with grey...should tie in really nice to the purple. That's where I got my inspiration for the purple and silver. smile

I love BB&B. I bought some curtains there about a month ago, I can't find them again. I wanted the sheers that matched to go underneath them...they're completely sold out. I never thought the pattern I picked would sell that fast...they've very unique curtains. I went looking at the manufacturers website...they aren't on there. It's like the curtains never existed...anywhere.

Mrs_H_Allen, I'm glad you posted because your line here "or pregnant mothers try to get away with things thinking no one will say anything because we are pregnant" totally reminded me of this song, and I love that song (you may or may not, but I haven't met a mom who disliked it yet, so I hope you enjoy it, too):


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJRzBpFjJS8 for anyone who can't watch directly.

Man, I like these girls. I could listen to "F*** You" every day for the rest of my life and I think I'd still enjoy it.

ETA: And "Silver Lining". I adore that song (especially the YouTube version as opposed to the mp3, particularly for the flute part).

RCG, the curtains are by Ampersand and they're called "Central Park". The woman at the store told me that someone came in and bought all of them...cleared out all the stores. I have a REALLY hard time believing that. These are what the curtains look like (they're brown and teal even though it doesn't really show...it's trees in the forefront and background with the teal being used as "light" and more trees):



They've very "unique". I didn't actually like them until I had them up. We've since paired them with a very light tiffany blue colour for a duvet cover and put more cream into to the room to give it some balance. Turned out way nicer than I expected.

I usually take Excedrin with caffiene/pepsi...let's it work faster. Today I think it's the fact we're going from 20 today to 4 tomorrow. frown

Nope, no GTG for me. I'm shy. laugh Seriously...I am. I've been to a couple, usually sit there, don't say much, walk away feeling like a dork because I wasn't actively participating. Also make me feel way older than I am. laugh

This is my first time using wallpaper in probably 20 years. For paint on the ceiling, there is a really cool product that's meant for nail holes/holes in the ceiling (small holes)...it's a filler, but it covers a lot of stuff (provided your ceiling is white stucco). I've used this when we've replaced light fixtures and there is that ring around where the old one was...also used it when we replaced track lighting. Works like a charm. Never know there was ever an issue. smile Covers paint well too.
