Hey! Come rob my house! :D

Digital camera - check!
Analogue camera - check!
Film and tele-lens - check!
Underwear - check!
That's all I need! Let's go to Missouri!

Oh yeah, let's not forget the doggies who get to travel across state lines for the first time! Hammy and Bors off on an Oklahoman adventure? It's likely to happen if those little bastards slip their leashes and head for the hills! But hey, if you can survive West Texas, you can survive anything!

Yes, rollicking good times ahead in the state of my birth. A little baseball, a little art, a lot of R&R. Should be a hoot! See you back in Texas next Saturday!

Today was the day of the gallery opening in Dallas. I was not dressed as well as I'd hoped because my cowl-back shirt was sleeveless, and that meant I'd be showing off my brand new farmer tan that I got at a UNT soccer game. I wore a shirt that didn't accentuate my red and white stripes so much, and that turned out to be okay ... because we arrived at the gallery in time to see two people waltz in wearing shorts and t-shirts. Like I said last time, someone, anyone, please teach Texans how to dress!

We bought art. We couldn't resist Craig Cully's "Lilliputian" series. They're little paintings that measure 2.5" square, and there seemed to be bazillions of them throughout the gallery. Sadly, we got there too late to get the one of the cigarette (easily the most appealing of the collection), but we did get a black peppermint. Don't ask--it's awesome. I'll post pictures once we have it. Anyway, you can see a larger-than-life picture of one in the series at

Adopt a dog

Today begins the beginning (ugh, my words disgust me) of University of North Texas Mean Green football! It's become an autumnal tradition for Chris and me to listen to the broadcasts on the radio even though we only graced a few live football games with our presence over the course of our lengthy college careers. Do you think we don't care? We do care ... but only a little!

One of the great joys of the UNT broadcasts from several years ago was an SPCA PSA (what?) that extolled the joys of adopting a dog, preferably a large one. I can't tell you how much listening to those ads made me want to get a dog. I was a dog girl in a cat world! But we already had the cats and they were presumably cheaper, so no doggies for me. Not yet, at least.

So, want to hear the ad that spawned the desire for a creature to poop on my floor, bring in fleas, and bark at 2 AM? Here it is:

Addictive, huh?

I have my dogs now. I didn't adopt a big dog, but I had a small apartment. Anyway, two small dogs equals one big dog, right?

So much for that.

I made several attempts at a post on suicide and, remarkably, just made myself suicidal. So there will be no "most depressing Loquat post ever." Sorry.
