Boy Howdy!

I gave myself and the smartphone a facial taking this click.

You’ll get the full skinny on this #pulsepledge soup later in the week. Let me just say right now that it was a huge hit.

We taste-tested it last night before it was stashed in the fridge to marry. It’s on the menu for lunch tomorrow. Can’t wait.

In Other News ~

We saw Star Wars on Saturday. It was a Gloomy Gus day, and this was the perfect antidote.

Are we the last to see it?

There was a little five-year-old girl in front of me in the theater. It was her second time. I wondered how many people around me were there for the second or third or fourth time.

I like to wait until the crowds thin. I don’t like to stand in a line that snakes around a building and down the block, even with a smartphone to amuse myself. And I don’t like to sit in the front row where I can see things on the screen no movie-goer should ever see.

Boy Howdy!

True Confessions ~

G-Pup takes event-based anti-anxiety medication. I should be so lucky.

Just kidding.


Heavy rain, thunder, lightning, and fireworks give her the terrors. Oh, and testing the smoke alarms. This has escalated with age.

I know this because she was dosed yesterday before we headed out in a light rain to do the weekly grocery run. By the time we returned 45 mins later, it was a very loud rain, and she had chewed her way through a library book. Afraid to increase the dosage without checking with a vet first, we scooped her up for the rest of our errands.

Boy Howdy!

And poor baby!

Aging is not for the faint-hearted canine, nor human.

In Other, Other News ~

I watched the Golden Globes last night. Did you?

Was anyone else perplexed by The Martian winning a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture in Musical or Comedy? Anyone besides me and Ridley Scott?

Boy Howdy!

In Other True Confessions ~

I do not understand the appeal of Ricky Gervais.

That might be the most negative thing I’ve ever said here.

No. Wait.

I don’t like radishes! is the most negative thing I’ve ever said here.

And Monday is in the house.



You knew that was coming, right?

  1. Looks good! My boys wouldn’t eat it. Well, one might try it and decide he likes it. The youngest would look at it and say “yuck”. You’re not the last to see SW. We haven’t seen it yet. Might go this weekend. Good to know there was a 5 year old in front of you. We will be taking a 4 year old 🙂

  2. Haven’t seen SW yet. I totally related to G-pup. I get anxious batting my eyelashes. LOL.
    The only thing I have to say about the Golden Globes is that Denzel has some pretty great energy going in to his speech. He had to have known he was going to win that award the way he paraded his family up there. I thought he was going to say something touching to them. He couldn’t even tie two sentences together – he sort of just blathered. I blame the booze. he,he.
    Oh, more about the Golden Globes, as far as Ricky, I think you should explore those negative thoughts Elen, you are on to something.
