The Culprit

This is the culprit in the pumpkin pie incident. Notice how guilty Buddy still looks even several hours later.

We adopted Buddy from the stray shelter back in October 2004. Whenever the holidays roll around, he seems to get anxious and scrounges for food or anything he considers edible. This has included books, photographs, boxes, and he even gnawed on the coffee table that used to belong to my grandma.

We don't know why he has food insecurities or if he's just worried about being abandoned or lost. Aside from his seasonal bad habits, Buddy is a wonderful dog that we love to pieces.

Our pooch has food issues as well, but they are not seasonal. If we allowed her to eat as much as she wanted, I have no doubt whatsoever that she would eat herself to death. On the rare occasions she forget what a scavenger she is, she managed to get a bagel with a schmear off the kitchen table and dump a bowl of soup all over the kitchen floor. She also has a thing for Kleenex that we can't quite figure out.

My mom will be cooking the giblets for our PugPei, so she'll be in her glories on Thanksgiving. Perhaps Buddy already had his special holiday treat?

Have a great Thanksgiving. The pies look wonderful. Even Buddy's. ;)

You can tell that dog is a criminal, the low hanging ears, the guilty forehead, and worst of all, those puppy dog eyes... ;-)

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:


[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
