I can totally relate. We had a husky who used to get into the garbage...until one day I had just cleaned out the fridge of leftovers that had been sitting there for about a week and tossed them in the trash. Well instead of putting them in the bin outside, I put the garbage bag under the sink...(BIG mistake) I went downstairs to go play some WoW, came up a while later...Gir (named after Gir from Invader Zim -- not to mention the whole Grrrr double meaning thing). ANYWAY, one of the things Gir had eaten was week old left over ribs...lets just say, Sunday morning hubby and I got up to find that Gir had repainted our carpets a stinky darker brown ALL over our living room rug, and you could see just exactly where it went from solid to liquid. Started cleaning carpets at 9:30am and finished around 4:30...hubby was not pleased. >< Gir never ripped into the garbage again though LOL.

For the record Wil...I loathe "The Safety Dance". I agree it's GOT to be one of the most lame-o songs EVER. But it's one of those songs that gets stuck in your head. Doesn't make it any less lame in my book...but still lame none the less. BTW...am I lame for putting "lame-o"? /shrug /trundles off into the distance...softly singing...'You can dance if you want to'... DAMMIT!! DAMN YOU WIL WHEATON!!! /shakes a fist

Last weekend my kids, husband and I went to Ottawa for the day. The last time we had been there; just before going to this Japanese restaurant we like to go to; we walked past a store which my husband all but licked the glass. It was a game store. UNFORTUNATELY it was closed at the time, and he told our kids (who were almost as disappointed as he was) then that the next time we came back we'd come early enough so that we could go inside and look around. Well, this time… we did. It was a gamers delight and haven. There was a gentleman there speaking to the cashier (owner?) regaling him of an adventure he had been on; while we browsed the store. The shelves were packed with various RPG modules and books; standee’s, models and paints of course to go with them, and games, complete with a gaming room downstairs. Our oldest daughter; who has always been just as much of a ‘geek’ as we are; came home recently and asked her father if she could use his dice as she and her friends had taken to playing D&D at lunch and during spares. I think I saw him turn away and wipe a tear as he proudly handed her a set of his dice. Well, upon entering the store she found a set of her own dice as well as a bag she liked and bought it. Sunday morning when we woke up, she had returned his dice to his dresser while we slept. I am proud to pass our geek torch onto the next generation. May they have as much fun as we did (do) on their many adventures!!

My husband has a similar motto: "Just imagine everyone else is a blithering idiot, hell bent on your destruction." The sad part about both of your motto's is...it's sad...but TRUE!

I told my daughter she was "weird" the other day...her reply? "You're just not creative enough to understand me." I'm STILL laughing about THAT one. Try tossing that one at him the next time he says you're weird. ;)

Neverwhere has GOT to be one of my favorite books EVER. It's very visual in the way it's written (which makes sense considering the source), and is just wonderful! I also must say I completely enjoyed the BBC version of the movie; if you have not seen this 1970's Doctor Who-esque film Wil I completely suggest it. You won't be dissapointed. (IMO!) Do feel better! You seem to be going thru a battery of beatings and illnesses lately! :)
