Snickers pictures

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.16.2009

Hey, I figure if other people can post pictures of babies and grandkids, I can post pictures of my dog, right?

This is Snickers with her favorite toy, her yellow ducky. Actually, its color is more of a "bright" slobber ecru.

Try to smile, don't look so sad, this really isn't that demeaning...

Let's try to distract her with food so she'll look perky. Oh wait, put the food near the camera, not in your hand...

Except now she looks sad and pathetic as she stares at the hot dog, waiting for it and wondering why we're torturing her.
"Are you stupid humans done YET???"

"While you try to figure out your camera, I'm going to sleep, which I could do better if you'd stop sticking this stupid duck under my head."

  1. Awww she's so cute! I wish we could give our dog his own toy but he's liable to destroy it within a week. :D

  2. Heck yeah!! We, who don't have kids, OWE it to our pets to post pictures!!!! LOL.

    I just did one on my blog this week (Wednesday Post) it shows my dog lying on his back paws in the air sleeping outside on our patio furniture. It's hilarious.

    Snickers is so cute. I wonder what our dogs think when we're hovering over them with a camera? **smile**

  3. Hi Everyone Happy Friday! She is the sweetest, but pets rock. We don't have a dog we have 4 cats who are more like our kids. But we do have one child a son who is 3, and the Cats still aren't sure if they like him or not. But our son loves the cats and wants them to play with him. Pets are great and thanks for sharing yours with us.

  4. LOL Thanks guys! We take waaaaaaaaaay too many pictures of our dog, but now I understand about friends who take tons of pictures of their kids.

    I actually made a calendar with Vistaprint that has a picture of Snickers for every month of the year. It's old now, but I still keep it to have a rotating picture of Snickers on my desk.

  6. These are great pictures! We take way too many pictures of our kids AND our dogs! tee hee! Our dogs also tear up all the soft toys we give them - it is their mission to tear out all the stuffing as soon as we get them!

  7. Snickers is such a cutie! She looks so thrilled too. (not!) Our dogs have lots of slobber colored toys. Well, they don't even have toys just pieces of toys. Gee, where would we be without our furry buddies?

  10. I love it when you have photos of Snickers. Just adorable. I think it shows what a sweet dog she is that has a favorite toy and hasn't mutilated it beyond belief.

    The commentary is totally Camy! Just as funny as your books can be.

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

Ghetto Gongfu @mastersteas #mastersteas

Last year, I really got into brewing oolong teas, black teas, and Chinese green teas gongfu style. It’s a method where you use a little more tea leaves but steep for a very short time (usually only 15-25 seconds), and then each steeping after that is a few seconds longer. When doing such a short steep, the tea is not bitter at all. I like how each steeping of tea tastes just a little different, because the tea leaves will release certain compounds first and other compounds later. Also, you can usually steep it anywhere from 5 to 9 times, depending on the tea. You can use a tiny gaiwan teacup to brew tea just for yourself, or you can use a teapot. There are some teapots made specifically for gongfu brewing, although they tend to be very small, ranging from 200 mL to 300 mL (although there are some that are larger and smaller, of course). There are a few teas at MastersTeas.com that I really love, but which are very expensive since they’re very high quality. However, some of them

Regency titles in Lady Wynwood's Spies

I happened to read a review of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 1: Archer , and the reader mentioned being confused because characters switched between using first names and last names. I didn’t comment on the review (it’s my policy never to do so), but I thought it might be useful for my readers for me to mention why I have some characters referring to certain others by their first names or last names or titles. When I was researching British titles, many published historical authors recommended this article , which is one of a series of very informative articles on how the British refer to those with titles. The article writer mentions that especially in the Georgian/Regency/Victorian time period in England, people did not refer to each other by their first names unless they were childhood friends or close family, and even close family would often refer to a peer by his title name (or a nickname of his title name) rather than his first name (i.e., “Hart” for Lord Hartley).
