got 9 minutes to spare?

If so, spend it watching Sean Kelly carve up the Poggio like a two day-old slice of pepperoni pizza then give Mo Mo Argentin the grazi grazi. It's a thing of beauty, thanks Belgium Knee Warmers.

By the skin of my teeth

Fell asleep with Ryan this evening and nearly missed this post. Tomorrow morning sounds like our only shot at a "Snowy Day". I'm not picturing 3 foot drifts or anything, but it might make the cycling study interesting. We shall see, later.

What we used to do ...

Tonight we went to the movies to catch Twilight. Tuesday night at the flicks is not the most hopping night here in the chemical city. Note the lone over-rotated hot dog back at the concession stand. Two medium drinks, large popcorn and M&Ms $18. NICE

Anyway, interesting flicks promoted everywhere, the most fascinating of these is Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise. Not sure which particular barbiturate his agent was on when he spun this one to him, "You're not just a Nazi! You're a Nazi Hero! and of course you get to run", which is in all of his contracts.

On to Twilight, it was ok. Not good, not great. Casting was questionable. The Edward Cullen character apparently attended the Hayden Christensen school of acting, which is "look constipated". Not very intimidating when it appears that your leading vampire is about to take a dump at any given time.

Also, none of these "vampires" had fangs. I guess True Blood spoils us with their switch-blade incisors. These vampires could run fast, in the end i wondered if that was all they could do. The baseball scene was BORING. Some characters were good, i liked Alice and Jacob but Jasper resembled an anorexic Edward Scissorhands. Bella seemed like a sexy young version of Molly Shannon. The villains were great, the makeup was just awful especially Carlisle.

All that being said (typed), i'm glad we got out. And the microbrewery was nice too.

on giving your dog medication

Use cheese, large pockets of cheese with pills inside.
Experiments with peanut butter produced cleaned ejected pills.

Life is short never regret anything that makes u smile

That was the message that greeted Riley and i yesterday at the Vet. I liked it but at the same time i had some worries that Riley's number was up. It was about a year ago that our golden Emily passed away. Before that Dr. Armstrong was with us twice when we had to put cats down. So while it's always great to see him and catch up, there's a sense of foreboding there, as though he's gonna drop some sort of bombshell on us. Luckily yesterday the word was that the Riley Dog has a slipped disc. The old dog is getting older, which we knew. She seems a lot better today.
