9-Hour Interview

Woman is on her way to Charlotte today for what is effectively a 9-hour interview over the course of two days. Isn't that crazy? A 9-hour interview? For a fitness job? I'm glad I get to stay at home, because all that "working out" just makes me need a nap!

Too Busy for the Pug

Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm still alive - Woman is just too busy for me lately. Poor me! Woman has also been sick, and let me tell you, it has been no picnic around here. She's sneezing and blowing her nose all day long, and she can't sleep at night, which means she keeps ME awake. Geesh! I need my 20 hours of beauty sleep!

Thomas Jefferson Loves the Ladies

I found this photo on Woman's camera from her trip to Williamsburg, and I am in shock.

Do you see Big Tom whispering something into Kristie's ear? I bet it doesn't have much to do with the Declaration of Independence, but by the way she's holding on tight to his hand, she doesn't seem to mind!

Courtney, Woman and Punchy all seem to love the attention from this founding father, but Jess looks uncomfortable with the whole situation. I guess it's because she's from Canada and doesn't really appreciate the long history of womanizing in our country. Something to take back with you, Jess!!

Present for Me!!

Woman is back safely from the blogger meet up in Williamsburg, VA. She drove to Charlotte last Friday, and then FLEW into Newport News. Crazy, I know - she got on one of those airplane thingies like what crashed on the LOST island! She took some drugs so she wasn't as scared and if she woke up crashed or dead would be able to deal with it better. She said she sat next to a woman on the outbound flight and talked with her the entire time and has no idea what they talked about. I think the woman was imaginary or possibly Oprah. She was GLAD Kristie was at the airport to pick her up; otherwise, she would have just sat on a bench and slept until her return flight on Monday. LOL! Those are some good drugs.

You would expect me to get a gift from this event, and thanks to Rachel, I did. She sent home this fun edible game of tic tac toe.

treats from rachel!

I don't know how to play tic tac toe, but I tried to learn the rules.

I had to consult with Ian pretty often regarding my next move.

In the end I decided to just eat the game pieces instead of finishing up the game. Ian said it was a dumb move on my part, because I had Woman backed into a corner and could have won on my next turn. I'm not sure what that means. I did win, right? I got the treat!

I hope Rachel knew this was an edible game when she bought it; otherwise, she's probably devastated that I ate the game pieces.

Thanks Rachel!! No thanks to Woman for no additional gift for me. She said her luggage was too full for anything else. Uh, yeah. I saw all that outlet shopping you did. Give me a break!!

Where It's At

We've been keeping busy here in Asheville. This past weekend I helped Woman clean up the garden - I ate all the tomatoes off the ground while she pulled weeds. I'm helpful like that. Later that night I barfed, because those tomatoes were rotten. If you think I "learned" anything from that mistake, think again. There are lots more of those squishy yummy tomatoes up there, and I'm going to tear them up when I get the chance.

The People are fixing up the spare room as my own personal bedroom. They don't know it yet, but they'll find out soon enough. Check out my new futon. It's actually a real bed mattress, not just a cushion. It's nice and springy, and I like it. I'd rather it was purple, and possibly velvet, but brown is OK too. We'll have to work on the velvet.

Ian has another t-shirt up for voting on Threadless. You know you want to vote for it.

Another Voyage of Discovery - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More

If you don't vote for it, when I go to the cupboard for a treat, I might find nothing in there!

You don't want me to starve, do you? Oh good, there was one left - Woman made me SIT to get it. GAH!

You should still vote for it though.

That's how many degrees it is in my house today. The People won't turn on the heater, and Woman won't come out on the couch and snuggle me. What's a Pug to do? It's frickin' freezing! I guess I'll just snuggle my kitty. Kitty always wants to snuggle.

Woman has been letting me sleep with her lap blanket at night so when she gets up in the morning it's nice and warm. She says it's the only way she can get out of bed in the morning! I'm gonna pee on it tonight. That'll learn her!
