From This:
To This:

First there was her.
Then there was them.
Now there's a family.


Number of photos I have taken in the last year: 5,768
That's an average of 480 a month...
119 a week...
15 a day.
And about 4,000 of those are of the dog.  
Only about 3,500.

A Note From The Blogger

Hello Readers!  I wanted to let you know that IF YOU DON'T COMMENT I DON'T KNOW WHO IS OUT THERE.  I also don't know what you like and don't like.  Do you like photos and less talk, or more of my lovely opinions and photos together?  Tell me what you want!
AND COMMENT.  Or the dog will have to balance something awful on his head.  Like a watermelon.

Dear Rednecks,

Welcome to the Bay Area!  I understand there is a hick convention Nascar race at Infineon/Sears Point this weekend.  This popular raceway happens to be on my commute home.  I also understand that many of you have arrived in your redneck-mobiles Recreational Vehicles.  I see that you have brought your toothless parents and cross eyed children families.  But please be advised that this raceway lies along a 2 lane road with a 55 mph speed limit.  Please don't allow your children to cross the road unattended or I will have to run them over slow to a stop.  Also, know that when you fly flags above your little campers with the number of your favorite racer you look stupid stand out. 
Thank you for coming to the Bay Area and please don't molest the farm animals enjoy yourself.

What's Black And White And Pathetic All Over?

Yep, Callie.

Have you ever put so much mustard on a sandwich that it became the main ingredient?
You know, as in a mustard and ham sandwich.  
Yeah, me neither.

Car On Vacation

Today, Greta The Jetta went to the dealership to have a spa day.  Turns out she will be spending the night and coming home tomorrow evening.  She is going to be well rested.  I hope she doesn't miss me tonight.
In the meantime, please welcome Rowdy, the Audi A4 to the blog world.  He was born in 2009 and is steel blue. He is smokin' hot and has many bells and whistles.  Rowdy is spoiling me, but he will never replace Greta.  (At least not until after Grad school).

I have been thinking about the Bernard Pivot questions at the end of each Inside the Actor's Studio.

Zero Pressure.

Unreasonable Expectations.

What sound or noise do you love?
The many versions of how kids say my name.

Fuck. (But Asshat is really good too).

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

What profession would you not like to do?

If heaven exists what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
Sorry, I don't believe in God.  But if we are talking just a nice place with a benevolent overlord - "Hi if your looking for Dick Cheney, take the down escalator".

I would add:

What scent or smell do you love?

Wet dog.

Ooohh! I just found the original questionnaire from Proust.  Let's make this even more fun!

Money.  Joking people, joking.  Really it's that protective thing guys do that makes them seem like they can handle anything.
