Thursday Morning Announcements

Lots to do today as usual, but wanted to post a few things before getting down to the nitty gritty. First off, many thanks to all of my lovely friends for your encouragement the past couple days. I wasn’t trying to be reactionary about the stupid blonde thing, just vent some righteous indignation. The world at large has no idea what it’s like to be a natural blonde, and I am here to educate. Consider yourself schooled.

Next topic of business, my beloved sister is trying to win a prize. EVERYONE LOVES A PRIZE RIGHT?! Her French bulldog, Rocky, has been entered in the Bissell MVP (Most Valuable Pet) photo contest, and I am encouraging everyone to vote for him. Had I known about said contest I would have assuredly entered my own brilliant dog MAX, but alas, you will have to settle for the younger cousin. BUT JUST LOOK AT THIS FACE:

Yes he really is THAT CUTE. Please cast your vote for Rocky and make my sister one proud dog momma.. BUT QUICK! B/c the deadline is Tuesday April 8th. Click HERE to vote for Rocky. Click HERE to check out his Dogster Page and revel in more of his cuteness. My personal favorite is the pic of him in the hat and tie. Why YES, insanity does run in our family.

Speaking of insanity, my husband nearly went crazy this morning. WHY?? Well, over a sticker. This one, he found on our front door:

Now my husband is normally a WAY OBSERVANT man, but for some unknown reason he had not noticed this brightly-colored, highly festive, not to mention adorably cute sticker planted right on our front door. For the past TWO WEEKS. Greeting him each time he came home, or left, or stood in front of the house on the front porch. He came in from walking Max this morning with a CRAZED look in his eye, and he questioned me. Of course I told him, No, some crazed Barack Obama supporter did not sneak up on our porch in the middle of the night to plant that on our window. Not like when that crazed crackhead crept up and stole his bike a few years ago (on John’s BIRTHDAY of all days). No, it was me. I put it up there. Not only b/c it is clever and witty and GREEN, but b/c We must, after all, show our support for the future President of the United States, RIGHT??! Once he heard it was me, he was fine. He too is a supporter. BUT he is totally AGAINST FORCED PROPAGANDA. As of course, am I.
