Kirk Whut?

Shatner at the Olympics FTW!

Catherine O'Hara and Michael J. Fox, too.

Now that Vancouver is over and done, I can get back to watching all those fine, quality shows on NBC like - ummmmm... Hang on a sec.

Is NBC still showing "Night Court"?!?

Piper with Ears Up

All I Ever Wanted was a Goldfish, Part XXXVII

I was out shlepping shopping around Wal-Mart last week when on a whim I took a turn through the shoe section. That's when I found a pair of shoes in my own actual size. Now you may not think this is such a big deal, but I wear 14 Wides, so finding shoes I can wear is highly unusual. They were Doc Shoals, with the Gel inserts, and they fit nicely. I grabbed them up and laid down my cash (well, my debit card, but you get the idea).

Well, I had to to go to a funeral this morning, so I wore my good shoes and went straight from there to work. When I came home, Piper had ripped the insoles out of them both and had shredded the tongue and on one.

Thanks, dog!

I'm not mad, just - I dunno, somewhere between disgusted with myself for leaving them where she could get at them (she's done this before - to Paula's diabetic shoes, which cost considerably more than Dr Shoals!) and confused over what her deal with shoes is, anyway.

And in case anyone is wondering, the cat I mentioned a few weeks ago had been living down in our sun room. He and the dog still don't get along too well, but we only let one of them in there at a time.

How did you choose your LiveJournal username? Is there an interesting story behind it?

I got it from my email address. As for how I got that - well, it's a ling story involving the skeleton of a triceritops, a tub of sour cream and Spiro Agnew.

The Books of 2009

I did a little poll as part of the librarything group (an extension of the book tracking site LibraryThing) that shows all the books I read or re-read in 2009 and compares it to all the ones you (yes, you) have ever read.

If you'd like, feel free to drop by and participate!


Pizza's gonna send out - for you!

WOW Schoolhouse Rock

The Year We Make Contact!

Yet again, in the words of the immortal Allen Sherman:

I know a man, his name is Lang,
And he has a neon sign,
And Mr. Lang is very old
So they call it Old Lang's Sign!

Happy MMX, all! (As opposed to "Happy MrXl!")
