One pic each


He has readopted his place before the window on top of the sofa. I picked up a throw blanket at the dollarama so his peen gunk wouldn't mar the microfiber. Not that he's constantly oozing gunk, since he usually slurps that up for himself. Yum.

For the first time in many years, I have made my self imposed deadline for finishing shopping and xmas cards. Got them mailed out yesterday on the first of the month. What a nice feeling having it all done. I got all mad at Serge though because yesterday he chose our xmas card picture as his profile pic on Facebook. He has since cropped and reposted part of that photo but I like the final product to be a nice little surprise when the card is opened. Later, I'll post the pic here too.


Serge got a belated bday gift. It's a rice cooker. He's 44 by the way. It's probably not going to get used all that much. Uncle Ben's microwave rice pouches are so fast and easy and delicious (should be getting paid for this but am not) there really isn't any need for such an appliance. But the rice cooker was pretty easy too. Just throw the stuff in and the cooker does all the rest. It "knows" when the rice is ready regardless of how long you've set it to cook. Cool.

Since I'm bored and have nothing to say because I haven't been writing things down to remember to say here, how about a few expressions and their French counterparts. I've probably done this before but am too lazy to look. It's raining cats and dogs translates to it's raining ropes. Boy did it too. We got like three inches over the last two days. I'm spaced out translates to I'm in the moon. This happened to me on the bus yesterday. Totally in daydream land, I went several stops past my intended exit point. It cost an arm and a leg translates to it cost the eyes of my head (although they also say it cost me an arm, but there is no mention of leg.) The straw that broke the camel's back becomes the last drop that made the vase overflow. I kinda like that one better than ours.


Winter gear. Our big rain event washed away all the snow. But soon the snow will come and stay for oh, I'd say about 4 months. I'm looking forward to when it does so I can take Georgie back to the doggie park. Last time I took him, it was so muddy and gross and he came home drenched in the stinky doggie park mud. It's really peepoo mud which is quite vile. I didn't even want to let him in the car but we had to get home so I could bathe him. We'll go back when the ground is frozen with a nice layer of the white stuff on top.

There you go, a dispatch from the three of us. Have a lovely day.

I'll tell you the same thing I told Walt: I love it when the bloggers I read post puppy pics. They make me feel so good!!

My favourite French expression for "I am crazy-busy and can barely cope" translates to "I am in the juice." I learned it when I was a waiter, but kept using it long afterwards, sometimes inappropriately.

Georgie really doesn't look like he wants to be distrubed right now.

You on the other hand, are making me feel a little uneasy with that pic.

Peen gunk lol You guys crack me up, I thought women were the only ones who were uneasy about doggie peens

Re: The third picture. When did Mr. Hyde move in with the three of you?

Jabacue said...

EVer thought of doggie underwear for him (Georgie that is).

Serge is turning Japanese, I really think so! Cleaning up his own gunk, dogs are so lucky. It is January cold here so what happened to global warming? Ted

Birdie said...

Two lovely pics and then the third one. Yikes.

We have our first dusting of snow. *sigh*

Charlie never has any peen gunk that I've noticed. Hmm...

I love that picture of him, btw, and Serge too... he's looking very nice with some years on him.

Now your photo... disturbing is definitely the word.

Indeed, the microwavable rice pouches are fast and convenient, but here in the states they are rather expensive. Not a problem if you don't eat rice frequently I guess.

If only you could train Georgie to wash his junk carefully in the shower. We just don't allow Tuck on the furniture unless he's on someone's lap. That way, the upholstery is protected from peen shmeglies.

Four months of snow sounds fun -- IF you have decent public transit. I wouldn't want to drive in it!

Good job on getting the cards in the mail!

your pix - "heeeeeeeeeere's johnny"

serge's pix - is that SKIPPY peanut butter I spy with my little eye?

georgie's pix - reminds me of my kitty, steven; the back of the couch is his fave spot. but no peen juice; steven is neutered.

I still want a rice cooker. I like the sticky rice better than the unsticky stuff. (Couldn't think of an antonym for sticky!)

Freezing helps eliminate the mud but in Indi's world, it just brings out the many possibilities of poopsicles.

Have a nice weekend :)

Peen gunk removal slurping is THE worst sound I hear! And it's always first thing in the morning about halfway through my first cup of coffee that I have to hear it. Makes me want to vomit. Which is also a sound I had to hear this morning. Dogs. If they weren't so fucking cute...

We still have snow. We will until April, I'm guessing.

And high five on the cards and gifts! I love finishing early!

"I am crazy-busy and can barely cope" translates to "I am in the juice." Made me really laugh, there must be a reason why we use this expression. Spouse

It does really mean "overwhelmed"
