One of the worst things in my opinion about getting older is having to deal with WRC's. If you are over the age of 22 you encounter these probably around 20 or so times a day at least, be it in your neighborhood, apartment building, office, wherever. I'm talking of course about Weather Related Conversations. There is apparently a specific age in your life when everything you have ever learned about conversing with other people and basic human interaction is tossed out the window and replaced with meaningless weather babble. No adult is able to start a conversation without somehow relating it to the weather. It is impossible.

For starters, I don't like talking to people in general. So when a random neighbor I don't speak to or sometimes even complete strangers walks by me and says "Beautiful day today, isn't it?" or something along those lines, I'm not going to be happy. I don't know you, so don't talk to me. I also don't care what the weather is like. In fact, when most people say it's a nice day outside I am most likely miserable as hell. I don't like the heat. My pale Irish skin doesn't fair well in the blistering sun. I like it when it's cold out and I can wear jeans and a hoodie. Hoodies are my all time favorite type of clothing. I also like the night. I AM the night. I am vampire...

But yes I know that I am technically the weird one in this situation since my idea of "nice weather" is the exact opposite of everybody else's but when it's snowing outside I don't go up to people and say "Awesome weather huh?". I have been particularly excited for the Fall to arrive this year since my A/C hasn't worked all Summer. The average temperature of my condo this Summer has been around 80 degrees. So last night the temperature dropped significantly to 65. I woke up this morning to see that I was not only cold but that I had turned off my fan in the middle of the night and threw on a huge blanket.

Score! Though I'm not getting too excited. The people who approached me with "Beautiful day" comments today also informed me that it will get warmer as the week goes on. So not only are these people obsessed with the current weather, but they also have knowledge of the incoming week! Very impressive. But I did agree that today was nice. I got to wear my hoodie to work today (double score!) and since I can't drive my car I walked to the grocery store without sweating profusely. Not too shabby.

Though I hope these people are wrong and that it's going to start cooling down from here on out.

Hey Fatty! I got a movie for ya, A FRIDGE to Far!

So I was watching some YouTube videos today and stumbled upon some Judd Apatow movie clips. I personally am a fan of all his flicks, though I haven't seen Funny People yet, and I LOVE Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared.

So while watching these videos I can't help but looks at the YouTube comments left by people. Or as I like to call them "The Scum of the Earth". It's always fighting, fighting, fighting fighting, fighting, fighting fighting, fighting, fighting, fighting! (Get it now?) It's so annoying. The Internet has given us a voice, and that voice apparently it to be as obnoxious as humanly possible! But anyway, one of the comments on a Knocked Up clip was "I am so fucking sick of these fat, Jewish, stoner, losers getting these hot girls in movies!! They are taking all the roles!!"


(Long pause)

They are taking all the roles?????? Seriously?? While I don't always agree with the fat guy getting the hot girl, it does happen in RL. Humor is a big thing with the ladies, trust me I know.

Watch out Pitt, apparently Rogen is stealing your roles!

It was so interesting to see a post complaining that all the fat stoners were taking all the lead roles. I'm so used to seeing posts about "All the attractive people get all the great roles!!! They have it so easy!" Now there are a few movies with stars who are the exact opposite and people are still complaining?? Good gravy at this rate we will never be satisfied! You can't win if you're a hot actor/actress and now you can't win if you're a less attractive actor/actress. So what's next? The middle man? An amorphous caricature of a human being?

Who could love me??

Neighbors Update

So I mentioned awhile back this dude at the end of my neighborhood, Scottie LaDouche. The guy who doesn't know how to take care of his dogs and leaves their windows and glass door open so their dogs can bark at anything and anyone who walks by at all hours of the night. I'm lucky I don't live in the same building as him because I would go absolutely insane if I heard those dogs barking all the time. The dude just does not care if he annoys his neighbors. I LOVE dogs so for me to be annoyed by his dogs is saying something.

So a couple weeks ago at around 6 or 7pm, I was walking my dog around the neighborhood and as always we at some point end up at the end of the neighborhood. I stay on the opposite side of the street so I'm not anywhere near Mr. LaDouche's place but his dogs can still see us. And as soon as they did, they were barking up a storm. I had had a pretty crappy day at that point and was not in a good mood. That coupled with the fact that I had a few beers in me, I ended up doing the only thing I could think of at the point.

I barked back. HA!

And not like a fake "woof woof" type of thing. I basically mimicked his little yappy dogs with a series of constant high pitched yelps. That only encouraged his dogs more, so I kept it up. Dogs kept yapping and I was yapping right back. I was reminded of the episode of Family Guy when Brian is at Denny's and a baby next to him is crying loudly so he cries right back in the babies face.

Here's the video for those who don't know what I'm talking about.

Brian at Denny's

Was it childish? Your damn right it was. Was it satisfying? Oh god yes! One lady in Scottie's building came out to walk to her car and saw what was going on. She stared briefly and then continued on her way obviously being very confused as to what was occurring. lol! Scottie never came out and said anything so I continued on my walk. A couple days later he was walking to his car while I was walking my dog. As I got closer to him he actually called me out. He said "Barking at my dogs huh? That's real cute man. Real mature" I walked right past him not even looking at him and told him to "Fuck off". Since I noticed awhile back Scottie seems to be afraid of my dog he didn't say anything else but I could feel him staring daggers through the back of my head.

It's been about a month since then and guess what?! I haven't heard their dogs bark once!! Their windows and glass door are always closed now! Recently I bumped into Scottie neighbor lady who saw some of the incident. We talked for about 15 minutes and to give you the basic gist she said "While it's not exactly how I would have handled the situation what you did he had a long time coming. I ended up talking to some of the people in our building and we got together and knocked on his door and told him we don't appreciate being woken up by his dogs at all hours of the morning"

Neighbors unite! Sweet Victory! (Cue Final Fantasy victory music) Scottie LaDouche has been defeated. You receive 2000 gil, 1 phoenix down, and 3 echo herbs. + 7 Dexterity, +12 Barter, +2 Luck, - 37 Maturity.

Totally worth it...

Behind my house is a huge forest filled with crazy animals, annoying woodpeckers, pesky owls, and now extremely loud and obnoxious cicadas.

I guess it just started about a week or so ago. The cicadas have been freaking out! And I guess since it's such a heavily wooded area that there are probably hundreds of them all screeching their little hearts out at starting at 9 in the morning and going all throughout the day. Could you imagine if you life consisted of sitting in one place for an entire day and every couple minutes starting screaming at the top of your lungs and have it get progressively louder and louder as time went on? I know I couldn't.

Catch those little bastards!

I had an extremely long day at work yesterday and when I came home I was so tired I actually went to bed at a decent time! That's about 1:30 for me. I could have slept all damn day if need be but little sirens from hell started going off at around 8:30 in the morning. The worst part is since my A/C is broken all the windows in the house are open. That doesn't help the situation.

And as much as I can't stand spiders I saw this tiny little arachnid had caught a cicada, I guess right after it shed it's shell and vulnerable. I saw the spider starting to wrap it up with it's webbing and I just started at the cicada and said "GOOD! One down!"

Millions more to go...

Happy Birthday Mom

So just a quick one today. I don't want to get too much into it and be all depressing and what not. Today is my mom's birthday. She would be turning 59 if she was still alive. Just goes to show how early she was taken from us.

I was lucky enough to have someone cover my shift at work today because days like this it's just too hard to put on a straight face at work and pretend I'm not sad.

Since I make a habit of posting pictures with the blog I found this one which is very fitting. In the anime Lucky Star one of the main characters, Konata, also lost her mother. Although the show is a comedy they did a really good job with one of the episodes having the spirit of Konata's mom watching over her family. She even jumps into a picture Konata and her dad are taking. They can't see her, but she's there...

Still with them in spirit...

Happy birthday mom!

New "banner" for a Monster

So as much as I loved the Haruhi picture that I had as my banner it didn't really fit the mood of my blog, more just the fact that I really like Haruhi. While looking through pictures online I found this one of Kyon (from Haruhi). I figured this would be more fitting considering he kinda looks like me and he's not looking to happy at the moment. Much like myself...

Still deciding on what to do for a more permanent banner. I have a friend online who I might pay to make me some sort of banner, but I don't really have any ideas yet on what it should look like. Also thinking of changing the name as well. So much to think about, so little time.

But for now, today is my only day off this week and I made a promise to myself that I would finish reading the manga Monster. I've said it before and I will say it again this is probably one of the most engaging things I've ever read and even if one doesn't usually read manga I HIGHLY recommend this one anyway. If you can get over the fact that you have to read it backwards you are in for one hell of a ride!

Monster Manga

Much like the movie District 9, the LESS you know about the story going into it the better it is. I got one of my friends to start reading it and she doesn't even like manga!

Coincidence or Conspiracy....of one?

So when I was at the anime convention a few weeks back I kept seeing this skull logo everywhere for the show Gurren Lagann. I've read a lot about the show and have heard great things, I just haven't had the time to watch it yet. But what was bothering me was the skull logo. There was something about it that was just so familiar and it was driving me crazy until a couple minutes ago. I opened up the door to my mini fridge to get some water. My fridge is decorated in all kinds of stickers and one of them is what reminded me of the Gurren Lagann logo.

Gurren Lagann Skull

Offspring Conspiracy of One Logo

While comparing them they don't look exactly alike but there is definitely a resemblance I think!

Diet Update

Took me so long to update on this and for good reason!

I hadn't lost anything that whole time! Jezus. I've been on a diet before so I know not to expect results immediately but this was just ridiculous. Instead of stopping cold turkey and just going straight into diet food I ease my way in by mixing it with a few of the normal things that I eat. Unfortunately I work directly next to a Ledo's Pizza and while I don't get their pizza they have some really good sandwiches and flatbread combos that while delicious aren't so good for you. But after about a month of that I seem to finally be in the groove of things. While I do on occasion have something a bit fatty it's only every couple of days of so. My stomach no longer is constantly craving something. My routine is to now just eat a lot more lighter things throughout the day. That way I'm basically eating more smaller meals a day as opposed to less bigger meals. And it seems to be working.

Nom nom nom...

In the past 9 days I've lost 5 lbs. Hells yes. Not drinking alcohol will also help this procedure go a hell of a lot quicker. Though I will be drinking next Friday for my friend's birthday.

I'll keep you updated!

Never give up, never surrender!

Did I just quote Galaxy Quest?? Yeah I think I did.

So a week ago I beat Final Fantasy X which was an AMAZING game. After sinking in about 60 hours of game play into this title one would think I would take a breather for a bit and do something else. Well I didn't. I immediately popped in it's sequel Final Fantasy X-2. And when I say immediately, I really do mean immediately. What can I say? I have a disease when it comes to RPG's. Some gamers didn't feel like giving this game a chance because it only focused on 3 girl characters, which is confusing to me because there is nothing that guys love more than hot girls and video games. Or maybe that's just me. While the story isn't as engaging as FFX, the game play is incredibly addicting.

You down with YRP? (Yeah you know me!)

After playing so much FFX I knew this game wasn't going to be nearly as hard so I was just going to enjoy it on a casual level and not get too obsessive over trying to find every little thing. After putting several hours into the game the next day I talked to a colleague at work. He told me that back when he played it he got 100%. I was amazed by this but decided there was no way I could put the time and effort into all that. It's just too much! But then as I started playing more and more I slipped right into my obsessive phase. God I'm weak...
Though I will not try and get the full 100%, I will try and get the highest percentage possible without going completely overboard.

Which leads us to this blogs title. This game is filled with crazy mini games (Sphere Break?! Are you kidding me??) and I got caught up in one last night that was driving me insane. Basically it was a mini shooting games. You have a gun and you run through the level shooting "fiends" and grabbing ammo. Catch is you have to reach 500 points in 7 minutes. It sounded easy enough to me. After about 10 tries I was still not getting it and it was driving me mad. After even more tries I was getting closer and closer ever so slowly. Realizing it's about 2am at this point and I have work early in the morning I decided that it would probably be best if I just call it a night. Though I really didn't want to.

As I lay in bed I tossed and turned. All I could think about was that damn mini game! After about 5 minutes I leaped out of bed, turned on the Playstation and started playing. If I did not beat it tonight it would haunt my dreams and I wouldn't get any sleep. This time I got it in 2 tries! Huzzah! But that's the kind of person I am. I just can't let it go. I don't want to give up because I KNOW I can do it. It's sad really.

Never give up, never surrender!

(I'd like to point out that I am probably the first person to successfully incorporate a Galaxy Quest and OPP reference into one blog. A thank you...)

Marvel vs Capcom 2

First and foremost I have to say I went from being in an incredibly bad mood to a super awesome mood. Had a long day at work and my back was kinda bothering me. I was supposed to see District 9 with my friends tonight but I just didn't feel up for going out. Plus my friends are having a Beer Pong Tournament tomorrow so I figure I'll keep it chill tonight. But then I discover that they posted a new Haruhi episode! Now I had thought the season was over since the last episode seemed like a finale of sorts. Plus they normally post it online Thursday nights so I gave up hope. But alas, here it is! Which also means there will be 4 more episodes after that! So while that's downloading I shall be discussing the joys of Marvel vs Capcom 2!

Just look at that roster. 56 characters of mouthwatering geekiness...

This game raped my wallet when I was a kid. There was an arcade in the mall I went to called Tilt (which I always called Tut because that's what the cursive made it look like. God I was a dumb kid). So anyway, I know I played a alot of the original Marvel vs Capcom there but I don't know how much of 2. When I was in Middle School I was playing the original anytime I could. This particular mall was a lot father away from my normal mall but I had friends around there so if I was in the area I would always want to go. Sadly by the time I was able to drive to feed my quarter sucking addiction Tilt closed down and was replaced by a Nail Salon. To this day if I am ever at that mall and I walk past that Salon I give it the most horrid glare I can muster. Sometimes I'll make eye contact with one of the women and they give me a strange look. Probably because I look like I just farted or something. And then I go around the corner and cry like a child whose just lost his only arcade.

Years later it would be ported to home consoles. Sadly I had an X-box and it was impossible to find a copy for it. Apparently there were some problems with Capcom losing the license to Marvel and so X-box/PS2 gotta the short end of the stick with the game. The Dreamcast was the only one that had it. I didn't have a Dreamcast (who did??) so I was screwed.

But these days everything is different. Online gaming is everywhere and downloading games is made easy and legal. It's fucking genius that these companies are re-releasing old video games on the new systems for such a cheap price. I'm going to download Final Fantasy 7 onto my PS3 for $10 and play one of my favorite games from my childhood! So when I heard that they were releasing Marvel vs Capcom to download I lost it! The promotional poster made me cry tears of joy...

These are a few of my favorite things...

I downloaded the demo several months ago but you could only play it multiplayer online (no single player) and you could only play with a friend(you couldn't go online for a random match up.) Sadly none of my friends were interested in the game, though I also think they aren't very interested in myself either. So I had a demo I couldn't even play. Talk about Blue Balls...

After several painful months August 8 arrives and I post thousands of messages on Facebook and Twitter about how I can't wait to download the game that day. Unfortunately for me it got postponed until the following week. Talk about Blue Balls...

So yesterday while I was depressed as hell that a new Haruhi wasnt' posted and I figured the season was over I remembered that Marvel was coming out! Took me all of 30 minutes to download. They were really clever with it to. The original download took all of 2 seconds to do. When I checked the file is was called Marvel vs Capcom Unlock. Basically it worked off of the original demo I downloaded months earlier. Instead of downloading a whole big file, this somehow took the existing file, "unlocked" something allowing for the rest of the game to download. Hella sweet!

I spent several hours getting my shit together and practicing, figuring out which team would be the best. You can choose 3 characters and switch them in and out during battle! I ended up with Spider-man (always!), Wolverine, and Marrow (surprisingly). I would sometimes put in Morrigan or Gambit. So I thought I was doing pretty good against the computer and was ready to do battle over the Interwebs. It took me about 2 seconds to find a match and then what happened next was so incredibly painful.

This dude absolutely wiped the floor with me. Not only that but he almost flawlessed me! Granted some of the shit he was doing was pretty cheap but I was still blown away. So I said "fuck playing online it's time to practice some more!" So that's how I spent my night. It's unbelievable how good people are at these games. I bought Soul Calibur 4 because I was excited to be able to play online with people around the world only to be frustrated because everybody pwnd the living daylights out of me. And I'm actually good! I eventually sold the game because it wasn't worth it.

But I won't let that happen with Marvel vs Capcom. Getting pwnd will only make me stronger!!

Now it looks like I'm gonna go Skype with some college buddies. Then watch Haruhi.

Getting jacked??

So after talking to one of my favorite friends tonight from college, she reminded me of some great stories I told her about my mom. And I was going to blog about them tonight but I'm going to save it for another date. Because I just found out the news that one of my best friends from college not only started a blog recently that you should all check out HERE. But his latest post is about how his brand new car just got fucking robbed!

My friend loves Cowboy Bebop so I present to him this image!

That is beyond fucked up. You can read his blog for the details but I can't stand for that type of behavior. You have to be a pathetic, friendless, no-named, lowlife, loser, jerk-off, reeks of turd, dumbass to pull a stunt like that! Get a life ass-hat. Ripping off people who are doing better than you? You probably sleep very well at night...

I could go on and on and on and on about this topic but the scum of the Earth can't even read this cause he can't afford a computer. Or even the internet!

Wait, scratch that, he probably stole it. Nevermind...

You are the one who is the ball-licker!!!!

Til next time...

Wednesday, August 12, 2009


So I found out that you can add an image in your header. I've obviously chosen one of my favorite Haruhi pictures for the time being. I'd kind of like to make my own personal banner for my blog but I don't really have the proper software. I don't even have Photoshop!

Anyone out there have any suggestions?

Why I hate gyms... Mainly Gold's Gym

Well obviously someone like me is going to hate the gym. I love video games, anime, comics, and movies. I hate doing physical activity and I especially hate people who think they are tough shit. So the gym is pretty much my Htrae (Bizarro World to those who don't read comics. Read the Htrae backwards...)

If Haruhi went to Gold's Gym I'd be set!

I subscribed to a year long membership at Gold's Gym for a reason. I would pay $35 a month for a year with no cancellations. If I was to pay by the month it would be $45-$50. So I figured do the year long would actually force me to go to the gym more! And that's what I signed up for. Unfortunately for me, I would not only have a lot of family problems that would prevent me from using my car, but I also had a bike I could ride but then got HIT by another car. I survived, but the bike was damaged. Figures!

So I basically signed up for a gym membership that was draining $34.99 out of my bank account every month, for a year, and I think I went a total of 10 times. Solid right??? Obviously wrong. Now yes it's my own fault for not being able to go. Oh well. But the whole experience there was absolutely disgusting! Sure they had amazing equipment and a whole lot of space which is nice but sadly it was just filled with self centered meat-heads ( though that description might be redundant).

But what really upset me was the receptionists. Given that it was mainly guys in this gym, they hired two different women to run the desk. And only two. One had the Pam Beasley look (from The Office, who I found hella cute!) and then there was the woman I dub Matsumoto!

Matsumoto is a character from the manga/anime Bleach.

Now what distinguishing features do you believe the woman at Gold's Gym's shares with this character in order for me to call her the opposite of Pam Beasley?? Just take a shot in the dark...

They have this women, "Matsumoto" not only man the front desk, but then strut around and flirt with the meat heads (which there are many!!!!) to obviously boost their egos and get them to continue coming. I was on the treadmill one day busting my ass off and I watched one of the managers come out of the backroom, walkover to Matsumoto, and point out a dude that was flirting with her earlier. She gets up, walks over to him doing cardio (jacked dude like that needs cardio since it's right next to the front chest......SHIT, I mean front desk!!! I'm sorry. Front DESK) And she just strokes his ego in this amazing manner. He was butter in her palms...

Now the Pam Beasley girl is amazing! And for good reason. She is supposed to lure in fat guys that think they might have a chance with her. They know Matsumoto is out of their league, but these guys are coming to the gym to work on that and Pam Beasley is the best motivation. She is the girl they can actually probably get. I personally prefer the Pam over the Matsumoto. This girl is fucking amazingly cute, and Matsumoto is a tramp.

Observing the whole gym scenario makes me want to vomit. But that's just my gym by the way! Don't let my thoughts swing you from trying to work out! Just stay away from Gold's Gym. And here's the best reason why!

I subscribed to a year long membership that I barely used. So when I called the the other day and here is how it went down...

Me: Hey, I just finished my yearlong membership.

GoldsMember: OK...

Me: And I wanted to check my account. I just got billed even though my membership is over. As I said, only one year I signed up.

GoldsMember: (typing..............) Ok yeah! Well your membership is going to continue over the year unless you cancel it.

Me: Ok well that's why I'm calling. I'm gonna cancel now.

GoldsJERKFACE: Well you're going to have to write a letter. It can either be mailed to us or you can bring in the letter yourself to our Gold Gym.

Me: I have to WRITE a LETTER? That I can either mail or bring into you personally?

GoldsJERKFACE: Yes that's all you have to do.

Me: But I'm telling you right now. End

JERKFACE: I can't do that sir....

Me: Fine, see ya soon....

I'm going to write a letter at work tomorrow and print it out (since I don't have a working printer at home) Since they wouldn't answer my questions or tell me how to format my letter I am going to give it to them strait up. I might even take photos of it happening, why not...?

Stay tuned for said letter...


Well that really sucked. During my last post my power went out for absolutely no reason. And it was pitch black in my room!!! I seriously could not see a damn thing. I was lucky that I cleaned my room recently or else I would have been tripping all over things.

So my first thought is to obviously find a flashlight but I had no idea where I left mine. I had to slowly move around my room, arms out in front so I didn't bump into anything. After several minutes of that I realized I should probably just find my cellphone and use that as a source of light. Of course I had no idea where I left my phone. So that was about another 5 or so minutes feeling around for that. It's at this point I realize I am sweating profusely since the fan is off!!

This is where I start freaking out because I have to be up early for work tomorrow and there is no way I'm going to get any sleep without that fan on me! So after 30 minutes of sweating bullets and trying to figure out what the hell I am going to do to survive the night, the power flicks back on. Thank god! Had it not come on just then I was about to just get in my car and drive around for awhile. At least my car as A/C! But lucky for me that wasn't the case. Crisis averted!! It's so pathetic that there is literally nothing for me to do when the power is out. I can't even read.

Well it's time for me to watch some anime before trying to hit the sack. Night all!

Sure is hot in these rhinos!

So my A/C is still broken and it's been really hot the past couple days. This is basically what I look like all day long...

My brother said he talked to a few of my neighbors and theirs are broken as well due to old age. So one can only assume that that's the problem with ours as well. The best part is that if that is indeed what is wrong according to our neighbors it will cost $9,000 to get a whole new A/C unit. Fucking brilliant!

I've been pretty lucky that this summer hasn't been all that hot. There's been about maybe 5 days where it was almost unbearable but that's about it. I think I'll be able to make it through August. I cannot wait til it's Fall/Winter again. I like my house to feel more like Hoth as opposed to Tatooine (ahthankyou).

In other news, I believe I was able to change the options for the comment box. Now you shouldn't have to be a member to post comments, it should be free to everyone. Also, for those who follow me on Twitter should checkout my page here. Someone was nice enough to make me a custom made anime Twitter background. It's pretty fucking slick! You can check out his blog here.

Speaking of anime, an old buddy from school messaged me on Facebook the other day. Apparently he was trying to get rid of a bunch of stuff and asked if I wanted to take his anime collection off his hands. Well I would be stupid to refuse such an offer! So a couple days later I get this huge box at my doorstep. Inside is about 450 discs of anime. I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty much set for life!

Animated clothing

There is something very interesting about anime and manga that most might take for granted but I always notice it. It's probably because I watch a lot of cartoons (gotta learn those voices!) and notice that cartoon characters almost always wear the same clothes. Which is fine! When we watch The Simpsons, we don't care that they don't age or that they only wear the same clothing everyday. That's the beauty of making a cartoon. Sure, every once and awhile on The Simpsons and Family Guy, they wear "church clothes" which is different.

But on a lot of anime and manga they have what I call the "Default outfit" which most cartoons have. But then a lot of anime I've seen they change their outfits a lot! And that's tough for animation.

For me it's just one of those things that I find very interesting and I get a lot out of it. It seems more real to me. I'm sure there are a lot of people who watch and don't even notice. Which is fine. But I love small touches like that in animation. Also, hair styles. They can change those a bit sometimes in anime.

It's the little thing that make me happy...

Here are some examples from the anime K-On of different clothes...

Til next time!

Cleaning the room

I am lucky enough to live in the top floor loft of my condo. It's like having my own little apartment for just me and my dog. Unfortunately since it's a much larger area than a normal room I tend to let things get cluttered a lot more.

I woke up today with the motivation to clean my room once I got back from work. I wasn't expecting to have my ass handed to me at work. So now my back is all out of whack and I really don't feel like moving. I just want to lay down and relax.

Technically I should make my dog do it since he's the main reason it's a mess. He's so pathetic when it comes to eating. He will eat anything that remotely smells like food. If I leave a small wadded up napkin on my computer desk, I will come home from work to find it either missing or torn up on the floor. A couple days ago I made the mistake of crumbling the wrapper of my Potbelly sandwich and leaving it on my desk. I stepped outside to check the mail and by the time I returned the wrapper was torn to hell and scattered all around my computer. My dog is standing there with a pathetic look on his face. He knows he did wrong!!

Speak of the devil. My dog is whining to go out so I must bend to his every whim, even if he does snatch my food when I'm not looking.

I'll probably post some picture of my loft once it's clean.
