Dear Steve Jobs: Please cut a deal with Verizon.

After Alice, my family, The Human Male, wine, The Urban Family, and America's Next Top Model, one of the things I love the most in my life is my iPod Touch.  Honestly, I'd date it if I could.  If Verizon got the iPhone, I'd give up my BlackBerry (which I love like an appendage) in a hot millisecond.  Love it.

Everyone loves Matt Damon!

The Lost Dog and Cat Rescue has a fantastic dog named Matt Damon.  Matt's recently gone through a series of surgeries and is now available for adoption.

We met Matt a couple of months ago and I'm still totally smitten with him.*  I love, love, LOVE him.  There's even been discussion here tonight of if he isn't adopted this weekend, ** Alice and Matt may need to meet.

Wonder Puggle!

Alice got a SPECTACULAR present in the mail yesterday: a T-shirt from Mr. Puggle!

But it's not just any shirt.  Oh, no.  It's a Wonder Puggle shirt!

Alice and the Emergency Vet.

Last night we were playing around with Alice and I noticed she had this weird thing on her foot-- red and swollen with white things on it.  Alice's feet are in our faces more than they're not, so we would've noticed if this had been there before.  I immediately thought she ripped her nail out, but then counted how many she had left.  No dice.  Then I thought she broke her toe and it was sticking out, but when I touched it, it wasn't hard.  Then I thought it might be a bug that had burrowed its way into her toe, or that she stepped on something. Besides being agitated that we were holding her and poking her foot, Alice was acting totally fine, but we decided to be safe than sorry and took her to the emergency vet.

Found: A Friday Puggle!

Remember a few months ago when Alice was in the Friday Puppy competition?  She didn't win (but got SOOO many votes-- thank you again!) but there's a chance that another puggle could.

The Dog-Knee-Elbow-Eye Connection, or That Time I Punched Myself in the Face.

Something happened on Sunday night that's so outlandish, I'm not sure that I even believe it-- and I was there.  The short version is, Alice started a chain reaction that resulted in me giving myself a black eye.

El Chupacabra.

Chupacabras are pretty popular around the Alice Palace. I've been fascinated with chupas for years, and my family is as well (spurred on by some great X-Files episodes from a few years ago). Occasionally someone will "see" a chupacabra, or something will get blamed on a chupacabra ambush. The Human Male also likes chupacabras, but he typically calls them "chupacabrays" or "chupanibres". "Chupanibre" is particularly contagious.

Two Piggies.

With the impending demise of Alice's nearby dog store, we decided to pick up a spare piggy.
