i want a puppy! (but not that one...)

thank u to all the kind readers and friends who wished me such warm happy birthdays yesterday. my 21st was a blast, but do not worry and do not be alarmed: self-control and dignity were not lost (which is more than can be said for some ppl.) i merely ordered my first drink, a rum ri martini and sipped it modestly at dinner with my family. we ate cake and sang songs and i opened presents. (my family surprised me at the last minute with very kind and thoughtful presents, giving me a stack of DVDs i'd been pining for all year, including MEMENTO, HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG, EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN, and AMERICAN BEAUTY (my other favorite movie).

in all, it was one of the best birthdays i've ever had. thank you. :-)

speaking of gifts, i've always wanted a puppy and have asked for one for christmas ever since i was old enuf to know i had needs and wants for things (5 was the age i think). well, i didn't get a puppy this year (surprise surprise), but when i went to the new york times website (my homepage), i saw this:now, let's take a closer look, shall we?
hmm. the cute and (read:) iNBRED dog. (read more here.)

apparently, the NYT thot this worthy online frontpage material. makes me wonder if i shld revert to the BBC (whose editors, despite their ostensibly british readership still found Gerald Ford's death and efforts toward peace in Somalia of primary interest. funny, where did we go wrong?)

in other dog-related news, i've been enjoying this satirical view of the long-befuddling comic Marmaduke.



and i thot i was the only one spending my sunday mornings endlessly frustrated by the seemingly guileless and unamusing shenanigans of an overgrown terrorist canine, but apparently Joe Mathlete is providing some necessary and not-easily-divined answers. yay for satire and comic relief!

ruff woof,
stephan!e

(-: Like the first toon My gf (helped raise her as a sickly stray kitten, but without teat, she is really stunted) went into heat last saturday My bf is, just guessing, a late-neuter (too much testosterone makes their frame and heads proportionately larger) So he tries to... y'know... and fails miserably, falling over

Apart from the whole big gentle clumsy beast versus li'l psycho kitty, they are both orange white tabbies from about the same area of farm country out here... that likely means nothing, but adds to the slapstick in the tv room

Your bday wish raises a serious question Are 'mericans really dog ppl and canucks cat ppl

Do not buy it myself...

Just read the review on the other mirror. LOL

I hate to think what someone would say about my blog... oh wait, I already know.

Have a great and safe weekend.
