Liberals treat dogs like people, Conservatives treat people like dogs

Hey, you. I want to hear from you, about everything. Please, add your comments. My numbers tell me I have about 20 readers a day. Quite possibly, that is my retarded nephew Scotty hitting the 'refresh' button 20 times. A perfect example of the feedback I would love to see is the Friday Fives. Hit the 'add comment' button and add your answers to the Friday Fives. It is meant to be an interactive experience. See how they do it over at Roy's.

thanks. I love you. There, I said it.

Friday Fives

1. What do you like most: Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays (and why)?

Fridays. Why? Because Friday holds all the hope of what the weekend could be. Saturday is swell, but gets caught up do more errands and busy work than unbridaled fun. Sundays? Sunday's are for football, and if all goes well... sleeping in.

2. What was the best weekend of your life?

Geesh. I think probably my wedding, because all the people I care about were in one place... here. You don't get those opportunities much in life, and too often it may be a funeral that brings us all together. Funeral sad, wedding good. This is why I routinely tell my therapist that my entire family is 'dead to me'. It is a preventative emotional barrier so I can skip potential future funerals. Seems pretty sound, eh?

3. What weekend of the year is your favorite?

fall is always super great, because Denver summers can be way meaner than you think. Plus, on Labor Day we get together in Northern Arizona for the party of the year. This year will be the tenth annual. You can come too, bring a tent and a guitar.

4. Would you rather live ina world where there was no such thing as pain, but also no such thing a sports - or - where there was no such hting as world hunger but also no such thng as Jim K. Bullock.

well, I am crazy for football Sundays and my beloved Broncos... so I will let you figure that one out.

5. Describe your ideal Saturday night.

I call them the 'Saturday Night Fiascos'. This is when everyone ends up at my house. We drink a lot and cook a lot and play guitars all night long. Always a good time, much money is saved, and all have a safe place to crash if need be.

Great news, the doctor said, there is nothing wrong!

Surely, that is great news, right? I mean, isn't that what every one of us long to hear from our doctors? Not so much. See, those magnificent and powerful words were uttered by not my doctor... but my vet. Yes, he was referring to my dog. Turns out there is nothing wrong with my dog at all. Again, good news? Not so much.

My dog smells. He smells terrible. He smells up entire floors of the house that he is on for long periods of time. We took him to the vet thinking: easy solution. Some infection, probably, throw some pills at it. We joked how it would probably cost about $200, but would totally be worth it. Nope, the dog is fine. The is in perfect health, and my precious hound dog is going to live forever. How great is that? Oh, it still cost almost $200... but the dog is fine. This means that Rufus (seen below) will continue to smell as he does.

I love my puppy, and want to love my puppy. I was kind of imaging the vet would say 'oh, he has a stink bug. Have him take these pills for 14 days and he won't be smelly anymore. See, he is too smelly to cuddle with. Well, what good is a puppy I can't cuddle with? Oh Roofie dog, why must you smell?

* update - we washed him tonight for the first time inside. We had to jam him into a tub and hold him down as we soaped him up. Yeah, he was not a fan. He smells great, though. Thing is, it will only last about a week. So, if you are visiting... I reckon' you ought to visit soon.
