The thing about volunteering to watch someone else’s children or dogs is that it is one of those unique favors that can end up with the favor-doer indebted to the favor-asker should anything go wrong.

It is with profound appreciation, then, that I thank the twoladies for their graciousness this weekend. No worries, and no pressure.

But you should know that there is pressure.

I am admittedly shirking my blogging duties, having been traveling and trade-showing and schooling. Bad blogger. More tomorrow.

Until then, here’s a picture of a Tully:

If you can make it through your entire life without ever hearing the words, “I’ll call you tomorrow after I finish working up an estimate…” from your Veterinarian, you will be better off than I these days.

A friend of a friend of mine writes a blog about interesting museums in Connecticut, and has recently been written up in the Hartford Advocate. I encourage you to check it out, as this website has in the past led me to the one of the greatest finds of my adult life: the abandoned Holy Land Theme Park.

While perusing the Advocate I also came across this fine representative of our home state and city. Asked what her favorite vegetable is, she replies:

“A baked sweet potato. I’m pretty sweet and I love marshmallows.”

Marshmallows, people. Marshmallows. Am I missing something? Even if I am, there are plenty of other mock-able statements in the interview.

I’m thinking we should run her for VP.

It appears as if sweet little Tully (all 9.8 pounds of her) is actually closer to 5 than to 3; it’s a bit hard to tell, though, as Vets usually deduce this from the state of a dog’s teeth, and most of Tully’s are going to have to be removed due to decay.

My seething anger with the Amish is growing greater every day.

I’ve added these little iTunes feeds to the right of my blog. I enjoy the “favorite artists” functionality, though I’m not quite sure how iTunes makes this determination. I was looking for more of a “favorite artist this second” kind of thing, but oh well. My music tastes are mercurial at best, complete and utter musical ADD at worst. I’m not quite sure there’s a software algorithm that could effectively capture that.
