Rocketing Around the Blogosphere

I was up late last night (this morning) watching hockey. The Canucks/Flames went into triple overtime before the Canucks scored to force the series into a deciding seventh game. Three AM before I crawled into bed. What? Don't you realize it's the first round of the NHL playoffs? C'mon, get some perspective. Sheesh.

My dogs aren't hockey fans, although they do lay on the floor near the TV. I think they have trouble following the puck, so they close their eyes and just listen to the game. That's what I choose to believe anyways.

They also wanted to go outside way too early this morning. *yawn*

Speaking of dogs, do you read Two Nervous Dogs? You should be, because of stuff like this:

In other doggie developments, the ear infection is pretty much gone (again), but then a sty appeared on the eyelid. The vet punctured it, which was disgusting. The puncturing of the sty didn't seem to bother the dog at all. Yep, no problem at all with a guy jabbing a needle right into the eyelid "while you wait," but you just try clipping those toenails, mister.

Truer words were never spoken.

Meanwhile, Denita continues to provide monster artwork for their new game. You've got to check out the latest over at Who Tends the Fires. Make sure you click on it and see the bigger version too. Between cooking and movie reviews and kid-blogging and intelligent commentary, there's a whole lot of good stuff to go through.

Lynn posts beautiful pictures, talks about classical music, and makes me smile with her wit and insight. She's got a post up about Vegetarians, and this line of hers made me laugh out loud:

I sort of lean toward the "The body is a temple" side myself but, as everyone knows, temple gods demand regular sacrifices of animal flesh.

Exactly! Just a warning though, the comments for that post are civil but not for the weak. They talk about liver.

And for the record, I like liver.

Spoons recently got married (congrats!). He also wrote one of the funniest posts I've seen in a long while. It's short, you should go read it.

And speaking of congrats being in order, SilverBlue and his partner have decided to make it official. Best wishes for you both, and I hope you find happiness, contentment and prosperity together.

And lastly but not leastly, a couple of pointers to some other bloggers that review movies on a somewhat regular basis. Besides Ironbear at the aforementioned Who Tends the Fires, you could also visit Truly Bad Films for some great fun, as well as one brand new to me called A Perfectly Cromulent Blog (and thanks to Norbizness for that pointer).

My dogs are laying here snoring, yet I'm now wide awake. I think I'll go cook some bacon and not give them any.

Awww. gee.... Thanks for the well wishes. :-)

Thanks for the kind words -- and BTW have I ever said how much I like the artwork you've used in your banner of late? Very nice.

Somehow I doubt your dogs will snore through the cooking of the bacon. ;-)

Thanks for the linkagery, m'dear! And thanks for the high praise, too! You're such a sweetie! :-)

We've been trying to get Denita to stop that intelligent commentary stuff. She's making me and Eric look bad. ;]

Thanks Ted - aren't the VRWC d20 critters just flat cool? I'm looking forward to the next installments myself.

Topdawg, thanks. :) I'm always on the lookout for new pictures I can stea... uh, adapt for new banners. I've got several more that will eventually be added to the rotation.

*LOL* @ Ironbear--Hey now, intelligent commentary is just my thing, my schtick, y'see...unless I haven't had my daily dose of caffeine yet. Then I'm about as incoherent as a person can get and still remain upright and sober. Bleagh.

You guys keep up like this and you'll be responsible for the stretchmarks on my head, dammit! ;-)

Oh, and Ted? You didn't kill this comments thread! NYAH! };-)
