Five seems like a good number.
I’ve been taking my blog way too seriously as of late. ‘Spose it’s paid off in hit numbers. Let us be honest shall we? It has been far less fun and downright boring on some days. I want to re-funnify my blog. If you came here looking for diet or training advice today, sorry I’m not sorry, it wont be here. Instead, you shall find a bunch of completely random bull. And you will like it.
Or you won’t but that shan’t bother me.
1. Spanky is quite possibly the cutest dog in the universe.
I have been dogsitting him since Sunday and it’s been interesting. The only dog I’ve ever really taken care of for a long time is Morgan and she is ridiculously smart. Smart, as in she practically speaks English smart. Sometimes I forget she doesn’t actually speak English. Morgan can:
- get out of the kitchen
- stay wherever I tell her until I tell her to move
- wait with a treat on her face
- never ever has accidents in the house
- can heal without a leash (though this needs much encouragement from me)
- runs sprints with me
- do a myriad of tricks (sit, lay down, shake, shake with other hand, roll over, dance, drop it)
Spanky? He’s pretty dumb to begin with only getting more senile as he ages. He used to be just fine off leash, but now he can’t be trusted. The other day I think he got lost 3 feet away from my apartment door. My family claims he’s going deaf but I think it’s kind of an act because he shows up at the sound of kitchen cabinets opening and closing.
However, I should add that he isn’t doing too poorly for a guy of 14. Well, except that he has this weird neurological tick that makes his jaw click up and down and he coughs a lot. Otherwise, though, just fine!
2. My gas stove is really cheap.
I was so excited to have a gas stove, I missed a crucial fact: it doesn’t have any temperature settings. It gets hot, then REALLY hot. I foresee a lot of charred food in my future. HOPE YOU’RE AS EXCITED AS I AM ABOUT IT.
All capital letters makes that sentence more expressive than writing it properly.
3. I sat all day yesterday
I woke up and sat at my kitchen table for a while. Then I drove the dogs back to my parents house and had to sit in the car for an hour. I got there, and sat the rest of the day. I feel no remorse.
4. I wish people would’t talk to me about their nutritional woes when I tell them what I’m going to graduate school for.
I like nutrition. I love hearing people’s stories. Connecting and supporting one another is both beautiful and necessary. But…. when I am at a bar or setting up my car insurance over the phone? I don’t really feel like talking about it. I’m not even going to grad school to advise people in what to eat. I am going to be in a lab, studying science and dead mice.
Almost all of the sentences in this paragraph began with “I”. Same with #3.
5. Game of Thrones is wildly addicting.
It is saddening that Season 3 is not available for me to watch on my parents HBO on demand yet. I can’t decide who my favorite character is…. it’s pretty difficult not to love Peter Dinklage. Did you know he’s from right here in New Jersey? Wikipedia also informs me that he is a vegetarian, lives in upstate NY, and serves as a spokesperson for an organization that advocates animal welfare of farm animals.
