Sorry for the break
Even when life is good to you, it sometimes gets in the way of the best laid plans. We’ll be back verrrry shortly, but the schedule for the next few weeks will not be every other day. More like when I have a second to breathe.
Toilet Talk: Fart Rules
Ahhhh yes, the rules of passing gas, one of the first life lessons we learn as children. We’ve all heard them - “He who smelt it, dealt” and it’s cousin “He who denied it, supplied it”. But which one is right? The biggest key to unlocking the mystery of the farter is knowing who you are dealing with. The first class is the proud farter. As a child, we never...
Will My Dog Eat It? Candy Corn
It’s Halloween, and that means it’s time to pump kids full of sugar to the point their heads start spinning. So why should Dexter be any different? So for the next 3 weeks Dexter will be trying out iconic Halloween candies, no chocolate. I mean, what could possibly go wrong giving Dexter a sugar rush? What’s he going to do? Chase his tail? Been There. Do wind sprints across the...
TV Shows I Thought Would Suck: Ridiculousness
I like Rob Dyrdek - sure he suffers from scrawny white guy who think he’s black syndrome. And yeah, he’s nowhere near as funny as when he has Christopher “Big Black” Boykin to play his fat black guy foil. And as I’m reminded of all too often, the situations he keeps mistakenly finding himself in the middle of come off way too scripted. With all that said, not...
Toilet Talk: Update on Dexter and the Pepper Rings
Friday we fed Dexter pepper rings, you can see that entry below if you missed it. He really liked them, putting down four before we decided we should probably slow down in case it causes stomach aches. That morning he had done his business and I checked his droppings to make sure nothing was weird, unsurprisingly he was fine so the woman and I went out to run some errands. When we got him I took...
Will My Dog Eat It? Pepper Rings
Last week Dexter killed an Altoid and since then he has been getting in my face whenever I break a tin out. I think we have created a monster … and they still don’t make his breath any better. This week we move to the other end of the spectrum, we are taking a request and moving onto something spicier. The original suggestion I received was of jalapeno … not bad but I...
Book Review: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
The final book in the Millenium Series, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (TGWKTHN) leaves us wondering “what could have been” had Steig Larsson not left us all too soon. Knowing we were robbed of what could have been another half dozen books makes you relish every work of what turns out to be a more satisfying goodbye than expected … and I think that is what is a...
Toilet Talk: Full of Crap
This past weekend the woman and I spent Saturday with her sister, brother in law, and their two little children. Their daughter was a little backed up and watching her strain would have been comical had she not been so miserable. Watching nearly popping a blood vessel made me think of some of the monsters I’m struggled with. Before you get scared you’re going to see pictures of...
