Embrace the Fail!

I lurve Felicia Day - she's a geeky girl after my own heart. She posted this interview to her blog yesterday. Near the end of the video Felicia gives her younger self (and us) some good advice:

Sure it's cute when it's little, but I've seen how big those things get!

The video's creator, Patrick Boivin, says "When I was a kid, there are two things I wanted badly and never got... A real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker."

The Boy Your Man Could Smell Like

I loved the Old Spice commercial from the Super Bowl and blogged about the making of it here. Hubby recently pointed me toward this spoof:

So adorkable! (and very creative! I love the little clouds that fall down)

Wed Pic: My dogs are fired

This rabbit has my dogs figured out. He knows that if he sits still in the shade or a brownish area, my dogs can look straight at him from a few feet away and won't see him. Today, after both dogs looked directly at him and went on their way, he decided to relax and enjoy the day.


"OMG my carrots!" is fighting with "Ooooh, he's so cuuuute!" Those poor carrots...he'll enjoy them...*sigh*


Not five minutes after I posted this, I looked outside and saw this:

King of the hill

Think you're king of the hill, Mr. Rabbit? Oh, it is on!

But, awwww, he's so cuuuute....

Wed Pic: My Poor Peony

I planted this peony two years ago and two weeks later, we had the "not a tornado (yeah, right)" storm. My peony was chopped off about an inch from the ground and I was sure it was dead. Last year, much to my surprise, it grew back but it never got around to blooming. I was so excited when it bloomed last weekend, but then yesterday came.

The largest bloom, Sunday...

...and after yesterday's storm:

Oh, well, I guess we'll see what it does next year, and you know the instant it blooms, I'll be out there with my camera. The top picture is the only good one I got with my cell phone. *sigh*
