Happy feet

Posted by episode81 on January 31, 2010

The green is much brighter than it looks 🙂

I have mentioned before that I love Vibram FiveFingers.  I also mentioned – on October 27th 2009 – that I was waiting for my second pair.  They finally arrived – woot!  But they were not the color (vivid blue) that I ordered – unwoot.  But they were a nice slate blue, bright green combo – woot!

The Sprint is much more comfortable than the Classic.  No rubbing on my heel.  It really feels like bare feet and my toes are happy, happy, happy!

Anywho, I digress …

The meeting

Posted by episode81 on January 29, 2010

Today I decided to introduce Alan and Noodles.  On the positive side, they didn’t kill each other 🙂  However, Alan was a grump-weasel and Noodles pretended not to notice him!  I would have taken a picture, but I thought I should be ready to break up a fight just in case.  I think I can call them acquaintances now, but not friends.

When I am out and about with Alan, I make many new friends!  He is quite the magnet.  Usually, when I walk into town, I only speak to the guy in Starbucks to order my coffee and morning bun and that’s it.  With Alan, I get to chat with at least 6 new people.  There doesn’t seem to be a common thread connecting them apart from the fact that they think Alan is cute.  He is 🙂  Alan’s fan club is split evenly between men and women which surprised me.  I have actually made some useful business connections along the way – the Chihuahua mafia 😉

Anywho, I digress …

Smooth

I went to see Eddie Izzard last night at the Oracle Coliseum.   His style is unique, using history as a framework for his rambling thoughts on odd stuff.  He gets distracted from his framework quite often, and so I was waiting for him to say …

Anywho, I digress …

Orange Rainbow

I came across a fabulous thing while shopping recently – a solar-powered Rainbow Maker with colorful gears.  Fear not, I don’t think crystals have special powers 😉 I confess I was attracted by the colorful gears.  Hey, one of them is orange!

Anywho, I digress …

Bob, Bubble and Britches

Begins with B

Alan is settling in 🙂  A few more days and he can meet Noodles and BB.  Yey!

I’ve never had a dog before, so this is a new learning experience for me.  Alan has perked up a lot and so I have to keep an eye on him – it is not clear if he is house trained!

Anywho, I digress …

Blinky, Peanut, Goober or something else? You decide!

Posted by episode81 on January 16, 2010

To blink, or not to blink? That is the question.

I can’t help feeling that Blinky sounds like he was named by a 5 year old.  In my book, that’s not good. What do you think?

Please add new names to the comments section and I will add them to the poll 🙂

Lisa.

PS  That is not me holding him in the pic!

UPDATE: 17JAN10    The votes are in!  There were only 3 😦  As Alan has 3 votes, you might think that Blinky is now Alan, but no.  I was inspired this afternoon by his hot, bald tummy.  Jelly Belly popped into my head.  Please welcome Jelly Belly!

SECOND UPDATE:  18JAN10    I blinked.  The votes win.  Please welcome Alan!  The name is inspired by this fabulous video 😀

Blink and you’ll miss him!

Take me home please. Please.

I have been looking at PetFinder a lot recently.  There have been so many small dogs abandoned in California that shelters have been overflowing – quite a few have been shipped off to New York.  Paris Hilton has  a lot to answer for.

Anywho, I digress …

I was following a car on the freeway this morning when I noticed the license plate.  I almost had a moment.  Not good when you are driving at 65 on a busy freeway!

It must be in the air because I had a bit of a moment earlier in the week.  We’ve all seen the poor guy dressed in an inexplicable costume, waving a sign to advertise a sale or rentals.  On Tuesday I saw a dancing rabbit waving a sign that said “Lettuce” – a local sandwich shop.  The rabbit wasn’t swaying but shaking his behind and really getting down to boogie!  I failed to get any video 😦

Anywho, I digress …

A victory for common sense

Posted by episode81 on January 11, 2010

Woot!

I have mentioned before my aversion to trees that smell of bodily functions.  Since I wrote that post, I have noticed female ginkgo trees all over the place.  There are a lot in Palo Alto, and sadly, I seem to walk past them all the time.  I had hoped there would be less fruit in the winter.  There is less, but it smells twice as bad.

Anywho, I digress …

Reason: Other, smells like poo
