Sammy Shreds

So...if you've ever had or been a beagle, you will know they chew things. Sammy has now taken to chewing things out of spite (usually when we don't let him in to the bedrooms).

Well, tonight, we thought we'd get him a chew toy. This one claimed to be SO TOUGH and virtually indestructible. I don't think so, but we'll see.

And so begins the dance (you have to say this in the Antonio Banderas Bee Commercial voice)...
Testing it for weak spots.
Hmmm. Nothing yet, we'll try the other end.
Wonder if Ic an get these fuzzy things off?
Sammy does this thing where he shakes the toy violently in his mouth by jerking his head back and forth (as though to stun the chew toy into submission). This is mid-shake.
Grrrrr. Doggone it. Still in one piece. This is going on about 10 minutes now. Very nearly a record*.
Getting closer...more of the fuzzy stuff is coming off. And the product material/safety tag (the one that says take away from your dog if it's ripped blah blah) has already been removed.
After about 13 minutes...a pause to tinkle....some water and another 2 minutes of shredding.
Sammy lords over his conquest. There is no chew toy that can survive the Shredder!

I'm giving this video uploading a try. Here's a little clip of Sammy working on the toy.

So now I guess it's back to guarding our shoes!

Have a great weekend if I don' t talk to you before hand.


*the record is about 24 minutes and goes to one of those rope-y pull toy with a tennis ball thingie stuck on it.

You should inform the company that it is _not_ indestructible and you demand your money back. :)

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis., I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
