Short Subjects

Three quick things for you today:

One more Levi story (are you tired of him yet?)
In the days before I brought Levi home, my niece taught him to sit on command. He's very good at it. He's not so good at walking on a leash, however, and this morning he got excited, ran around me in tight circles, and tangled the leash around my feet. Alarmed and afraid I might fall, I said, "Leeeviiiiiiiiii, holy shit!" He sat. Immediately.

Old friend with a new blog
In a post last Friday I mentioned how happy I am to have reconnected with my long-lost  friend, Annette. One of the things that brought us together in the first place all those years ago was that the two of us were responsible for writing and editing the company newsletter, she in the Texas division and I in Louisiana. I couldn't be happier to announce that Annette started her own blog yesterday. It's bound to be a good one, and I hope you'll click here to check it out and welcome her to the blogosphere.

Best laugh I've had in a long time
If you're a regular reader of Hyperbole and a Half, then you've probably already seen her post entitled "The Year Kenny Loggins Ruined Christmas." If you haven't read it, don't go to bed tonight until you do. I laughed until tears rolled down my cheeks. Honestly.


  1. I was just telling my new blogging friend about the Kenny Loggins post. I have my own funny story about him but it's too shady to put in print for fear of a lawsuit! LOL!

    I adore the Holy sit part!!! LOL!!! Smart dog!

  2. I love Hyperbole and a Half. I just discovered it a couple of months ago and cry with laughter each time I read it. There is nothing funnier, except maybe the 'sitting' Levi!!!!
