Captain's Log, Supplemental

This is completely random, but hey, what else do you expect from me?

Our dog loves watching the backyard. We have affectionately named it “BTV,” as in Backyard TV (a la MTV).

Here is how stupid she is. She can’t see a blessed thing.

Here is a picture of her viewpoint through the sliding glass door.

Notice the (a) mountain of boxes in her way, (b) the rug draped over an old weight machine set we have yet to put together, and (c) the smudge marks from her nose putting everything out of focus. The bush in the back is my French lavender plants desperately in need of a trimming.

The only thing she can see is the top of fence, where an occasional squirrel will run. I guess she enjoys barking at them, as if one will suddenly have a seizure and fall down from the fence right into her yard, and she’ll magically transport out of the house into the yard so she can play with it.

She will lie in front of the door for hours just for the chance to bark at a squirrel. I tell you, my dog is missing a few biscuits in her brainbox.


  1. Maybe she's fantasizing that it's really a dog's paradise out there. Hey! Who knows? She's the "child" of a fiction writer!! :-D

  2. That's what I love about dogs... hope springs eternal. Ahhh, blessed hope. Where would we be without it?

  3. Dogs are funny creatures. I had a dog once who chased a racoon up a tree, then she stood at the bottom of the tree barking at it... for FIVE HOURS. It must be nice to have such a simple life that staring out a window at nothing or barking at a racoon in a tree for hours is a worthwhile endeavor...

  4. ROFLOL! Your back door looks just like ours--covered in dog snot! We have both bunnies and squirrels to keep our doggies entertained.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
