Mama Report

Mom: "What do you think about Bieber?" This is what she asked me yesterday in the car. She continued on, "You know he came from Canada when he was so young- can you imagine? ..... I think he's good boy, don't you think so?".

Now, I have to rent that Justin Bieber movie for her.

(a few seconds pass...)

Mom: "But you know who I really like... Usher."

On-call Hospitality


I'm on-call tonight. This is what I usually find in the on-call room when I get there. Fancy, yeah?

So true....

This is so true, it's sad....

Boba, etc.

I found boba and other Asian people in OKC. They must not leave this place, because I don't see them anywhere else around here.

Too Big for some things

This is what Big Dog does when I am away.... I need to buy her a pillow.

Hot-Kaloma!


This was the temperature in OKC when I came home from LA. This is at 7:30 PM! By the time I got home, the temp was actuall 109 degrees F. Boo...

We love LA... we love it!

This is why I love LA- you can dance and sing in the street, AND people will gather around an cheer for you. How great is that???

Remember where you park

This is how I find my car at the airport.

Daily Doggies Activies

Little dog after a bath... he looks so small without his collar, like a gremlin or that little guy from Lord of the Rings obsessed with "Precious".













What Big dog does most of day.... she is a lounger.

Rainbow of Fun

If you know me well, you know that most days I wear black- head to toe.

I recently returned from France for a friend's wedding. The wedding was in the French countryside. When we got to Paris, we did some laundry- all my black clothes. The clothes should have been ready by the time we left the house in the morning, but I didn't do the laundry quite right. All the bottle labels are in French.... I think I used too much detergent, or fabric softener, whatever.... you know I'm not really the domestic type anyway. (Let's get real, it probably would have happened if it were in English....). Anyway, we had to do the laundry all over.

So, I when out on the town in a bikini and my PJs.... which ended up matching the metro upholstery. Paris loves rainbows too! But for seats, not for fashion.

Puppy Panic

This is what Little dog looks like every time I leave for a trip.... kind of an anxious, serious look. He jumps onto me, as if that will stop me from leaving the house. He is so funny.

Night on the town!

I'm intrigued by the restaurant by my OK house called WAHAHA. What you do thing they serve there?











We went for the blue restaurant across the street. Night on the town ended at about 8:30pm. That's when it all starts to shut down over here.

I love my baby back, baby back, baby back....

This is what we had for lunch in the doctors dining room one day this week. That's right- that's how we roll in OK... in pork and bbq sauce.

Will Rogers World Airport

Someone left me a love note at the airport....

hot hot hot!



It's 92 degrees Fahrenheit at 7:08 pm in OKC. Super hot.

Packing

This is what Little Dog does when I try to pack for my trips.... every time.... once or twice a month, a dog in my suitcase.

It's not Saturday, is it?

video
Every Saturday at noon, the tornado siren goes off like a practice fire drill.... but it went off today. Today is Tuesday. So, I turned on the news. The weather guy keeps saying that, "The tornado storm is now at blah blah blah county... In 2 minutes, it'll be right here at the corner of la-la-la. Get out of its way, Get out of its way. Just get out of the way."
Ok... how do you get out of the way of a tornado? Shouldn't they tell us that too? You know, for us first-timers? Should we drive away from it? Or hide from
it? I've chosen the latter. We have been in the bathroom for the last few hours. I have Little dog firmly straped in so that we will hopefully whirl away together. I wish I had a bullet proof jacket. I heard things fly around in a tornado, sharp things.

What's up, Doc

The dogs get one bone each every morning before I leave for work. It's raw hide bone with chicken jerky wrapped around it- it's a good bone. Big dog usually devours her bone pretty quickly. Little dog carries his bone around the house like a carrot for most of the day to keep it from Big dog. Sometimes, he has it sticking straight out of his mouth from one end, like a really fat ciggy or a cigar.

Our doggie nanny is moving to Denver in July. When she told me, wave of crazy and panic overtook me- Who will walk my dogs? How will they survive all day? They need to pee! Should I send them back to California where someone can take care of them?

Then, I thought, if they are gone, who will I talk to when I come home? Myself? That is crazy.... All I really do here is work and hang out with my dogs. If they are gone, then all I will have here is my work. This will make for a super boring blog. You guys don't want to hear about my work. Do you?

Anyway, I'm a single doggie mom- I will figure this out.

Thunderstorm

Rain coats came out for the thunderstorms in OKC yesterday.
Little dog never really grew into his coat... didn't matter since he wouldn't go out into the rain anyway.
Big dog sorta grew out of her rain coat but she went outside anyway. (You can't see, but the velcro is holding on for dear life underneath that belly.)

Food Revolution

I've been watching Jamie Oliver in Los Angeles. He should come to Oklahoma. There are so much more work to be done here (sorry, OK, but it's true). Jamie, OK needs you!

Burger, fries and a chocolate malt

This place has a $7 burger called the "NoName" burger, made from cows that live at the NoName Ranch in Oklahoma. Those cows drink spring water, eat natural grains and grass, and don't get antibiotics, hormones or pesticides. And I think they get to roam around the grounds like my dogs do.

I ate that cow so fast, with so much less guilt... and with fries and chocolate shake.

Stinky

Little dog has a new hobby of rolling around aggressively on smelly parts on the gound. Today the dog walker "caught him rolling on a dead baby snake in the the backyard." OMG. Dead baby snake germs all over the house.... aaaaallllll over the house. That dog gets EVERYwhere.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Sock

Little dog is lying here with the sock that I just took off- the sock that I put on a day and a half ago before I left for work to take call. Yukko. About a minute after this photo was taken, he ran away with the sock and took it to a secret place in the house.... must be where he leaves all his other treasures. I'm going on a treasure hunt.

Not In OKC


I haven't had much to say, since I haven't been in OKC much. I really don't have too much to say about life here. Today, it's windy, and I picked up the doggie poop in the backyard.


In the past several weeks I've been to New Orleans for a meeting, and ate many puffed pieces of fried bread dumped in a coat of powdered sugar (this is EX-treme eating for someone dressed in black).


A few days later, I left for Orlando for another meeting. The goal of the week was to get to Hogwarts... success. I think I can do magic now.... bought all the stuff.

So, now back in OKC... off to Target.

Gaga and Other Important News

I feel like I'm living in a time warp. Got a text the other day from bff, D- "Don't be a drag just be a queen. Luv Gaga's new song."

New Gaga song? I immediately google this. Agree- luv this new song. Also, notice that Gaga has had about 17 new looks since I've been sucked into the time warp. Man Alive! It's not like this is Mars- people here speak English.... very nice people here, who listen to country and the Bible on the radio. Don't get me wrong- the Bible is a great book.... I love it! But it's not music, it's not let's-get-this-party-started jimmy jamming.

So, please send information and updates about the world... important things like date of the Gaga video debut or album release.

thehateweshare.com


Going through some clutter in my home office.. came across this list in between pages of notes I took at a conference about 2 years ago. I think it was about a website idea.. ?? I'm not sure because I'm really much of a doodler of random thinker, I normally pay attention in lectures... and why did I think I had time to create a website??
so I was either really bored, or really frustrated/__ fill in the blank... let me take you through the list.






  • sleeping in pee (when would this ever be an issue?)
  • stepping in dog poo, especially other dogs' poo (I must have stepped in poo sometime that week, such a drag to wash off- and for some reason, poo from someone you don't know and love- dog or otherwise- makes the ick factor infinitely worse)
  • drama queen with no entertainment value (don't know what happened here b/c I consider the usual DQ variety HEE-Larious)
  • saddlebags (mine, other people's don't bother me- makes it hard to wear pants, skirts, and all other clothes... and also be naked, if necessary)
  • Pinkberry (secretly love it, but mad that I didn't think of it first)
  • Taryn Rose (faker who fake makes ugly shoes- also wish I thought of it first)
  • toilet water on butt (this is a given- toilet must have flushed on my butt that day)
  • inferiority complex and audience who plays into it (???)
These are more like "dislikes". There isn't really anything to hate, except really bad things like hate crimes- I do hate those, but doesn't everybody?

I wonder what other people dislike... maybe that's why I thought of the site. But what a tragic thing to come together for... hate. That was a terrible idea!

Here we go again....

So, the driveway is all white again, after nice Neighbor worked so hard to shovel it clean. I wonder when it'll melt?







But look at that kitty litter- it really works! It's the only area on the driveway without snow. Neighbor was going to sweep it away- thank goodness it's still there.







No mailman today. I don't blame him..... Little dog won't go outside onto the snow. Big dog tried today, but slipped, fell.... so just ran back inside without peeing. Why would the mailman risk that kind of adventure?

Friday, February 4, 2011

Driveway!

Look at the driveway! My Neighbor did this... not me (see below).... not that I'll be driving on it anytime soon.... not after I saw those cars collided in front of me. Let's not tell my parents about the colliding cars, though..... If you know my parents, you will not tell them, for my sake. They are only staying calm at the moment because they know I am at home, going nowhere. They think I will be hiring someone to drive me to work on Monday.... maybe, maybe not... but if they think maybe not, one of them may throw a clot and have a stroke (no joke). Everything is fine here.
P.S. as I got off the phone with them, mom says "it was hot today, we had to turn on air conditioner- oh sorry, Noona!"

Snow Day #4: Update

Dogs start barking wildly, yes my lazy dogs.... What, guys? Someone is in the driveway....My super nice Neighbor is shoveling my driveway for me! I can't even believe it.... I run outside with a thermus of green tea and handful of Kind bars- I don't know what else to do, so nice! He says something like, "I thought you might try to just drive over all this snow (yes, that was exactly my plan...) but that'll just create a pack of ice underneath (oh whoops).... So, I'm gonna need to get this off for you (oh, my hero)."

I think, maybe I can go into the office for the afternoon? Then, like an SNL skit, dead ahead of us about 1/8 mile of my house, Neighbor says, "oh look- another accident." Another?? "Yeah, there have been a quite a few on this road." This- the road that I need to take to get to the Expressway to get to the office. I'm back inside the house.

Snow up and down

I know you can't tell from this photo, but it's snowing. So, not only is the snow on the ground NOT melting, but more snow is coming from the sky! Man alive... They kept saying, "Oh- it rarely snows here, only some seasons... it's the ice you have to worry about, really... and on those days, you just stay home...." What is happening here? Snow is my deal-breaker. Snow and rain. Snow should be on mountains where you can drive to it and board on it, then leave it...
So, I ask my super sweet boss yesterday what to do about all the snow on my driveway- Do you think I can just drive over that? I have a capable car... Should I sprinkle that stuff over the snow to help it melt, then drive over it?? She kinda goes... uhh.. (something like), You really should shovel the snow down a bit then put the salt on/ drive over it....(I kinda stopped listening after she said shovel...) I tell her I didn't even think to get a shovel. She says, well, no problem- just use something to move some of the snow out of the way, like a bucket (I feel so dumb- I don't think I have a bucket, but I can't tell her this because she is so nice to me and never talks to me like I'm dumb). OMG. I panic- like a piece of wood? I will have to find one. My hands? I am going to die of being too cold. It's like 2 degrees today (ok- it's 24, but it feels like 2). I decide to stay home.
Then I see that the mail man finally came! Yay! I feel guilty. Poor mailman.

Snow Day #3

Getting ready to go out for a pee break. Day 3 at home. Snow still everywhere.... not going anywhere, not melting... just staying as snow.

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Snow Day#2

Wall of snow still around the house....










but now can see some of the concrete of the driveway! (but.... I think it's because my nice Neighbor H sprinkled some gravel, salt or whatever to melt the snow because it's just the immediate area from my door to the car.... so I don't slip and fall, I think. He's so thoughtful!)






However, notice how there is no other sight of anymore of the driveway or road between my carport and the houses ACROSS the street.

Lazy days




My dogs, apparently, are not the most active. Little dog spent most of the day in bed. Finally lured him out with treats and toys.






Lasted a good few minutes. Then it was time to rest again.... time to rest up for the big outting!







Coat on, booties, now.... Out to pee! Again, little dog was like... No way, Jose. Big dog went just right out the door, for just a sec, then right back in. Waaaay too cold for poo out there- that takes too much time, I guess. These are the things I worry about in my State of Emergency- will my dog explode because she hasn't poo-poo'd for 2 days because she doesn't like snow?

State of Emergency


I just got a text from a gal at work who said that OK called a State of Emergency yesterday. No wonder! No wonder- the hysteria now makes sense. This is my first snow State of Emergency- very exciting. I had to go out and take a look-see.... and I look-see'd a "wall o' snow" around the front of the house.


Then I also saw my Neighbor H shoveling his driveway! He's like my dad's age... Go inside, H! We are in a State of Emergency!










White Winter

Car in carport surrounded by snow. 30-50 mph winds blowing snow all over.... I wonder how I'm supposed to get out of the driveway. Are there people for hire to clear this? Am I supposed to shoo the snow away somehow?









Big dog's first time in real snow! All suited up in coat and booties... but she didn't get far, just right outside the glass door... pee, then right back in!
