i am back! we have been strongly encouraged to amuse ourselves lately (ridiculous... what else does she have to do, besides cater to my every whim?) and we even got a new toy to assist us with the "amuse yourself" order. it rolls and shakes and moves on its own, and massah thought we would be fascinated by it.

not so, dear massah; not so. we were bored within 30 seconds.

Friday, June 6, 2008


all of my friends have done this so i've decided to bless you all with answers of my own. my girl is also going to do it; she says it's because she likes these kinds of things, but i know it's really because she wants to be like me. who can blame her, really....

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
girl: finishing my first year of college
me: floating impatiently in the heavenly waiting pool, eagerly anticipating my mom morgan's procreative activities with my dad rowdy

2. Five Things on my to-do list today.
girl: create a list of things to do which will never actually get done, drive to my mom's house, scratch little petty pot pie under the chinny-chin-chin, drink some diet coke, watch the cubbies
me: huff and puff until my girl puts me outside, then come back inside, then go outside, then come inside, go outside, come inside....

3. Three snacks I enjoy.
girl: tapoica pudding, sour patch kids, any edible form of sugar
me: american cheese, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
girl: buy a house, take the family on vacation, save the rest for retirement. wait, BILLIONaire? gosh - probably pay off everyone's debts (in the family) and then just randomly shop and buy fun presents for everyone until the money ran out.
me: buy a seperate house for IT and then pay security guards thousands upon thousands of dollars to keep him in there

5. Three of my bad habits.
girl: eating when i'm stressed, not proactively fighting for my health, rationalizing anything i want to do
me: licking my paws (only bad because it makes my girl yell, there's of course nothing actually wrong with compulsive licking), yelling (again, only "bad" because it has caused my girl to literally smack my bum when i yell too loudly - call the ASPCA!), giving my toys to petra (because then i want them back)

6. Five places I have lived.
girl: my parents' house, the travelier, a roach-infested apartment, a condo, my current apartment
me: my first house with massah in missouri, motch's house while in transition, the condo where i tore up a WHOLE ROOM FULL of carpet (and got stuck in a canvas chair while attempting to eat my way through it), our loft where IT came into the picture, and in front of our parking lot now, where i have to yell at people all day long
to keep them away

7. Five jobs I have had.
girl: music therapist, addiction counselor, public relations director, business marketing coordinator, admissions financial counselor
me: guard dog, massah-comforter, vacuum cleaner, heating pad, master of annoying behaviors

YOUR TURN! (unless you've already done it) i'm gonna go play....
