biggest idiot dog owner award goes to…

Friday, April 13th, 2012

“I wonder if I can maul the people who did this to me like a tiger…”

Why?  Just …WHY?!  I don’t even know how I came across this.  Funny things come up when browsing images that might have nothing to do with what you get.  It’s amazing really.  There’s not much to say about this.  It speaks for itself.  There are worse things people can do to a dog.  This dog looks fed and cared for …too groomed, that’s for sure.  So I wouldn’t say “worst” dog owner or “cruelest” dog owner …though this is just cruel in it’s own way.  I’ll just leave it at “idiot” dog owner.

Dogs:  The most inherently good natured creatures I know of.  If they love you, they’ll go along with anything and just deal.

unless it gives back rubs and the power of flight, I’m not interested.

Oh how I wish this story were false.

This could easily set off my rant on how ridiculous priorities are in this world, blah blah blah …but you get it …unless you’re reading this on your iPad, in which case, go away.

“I’ve got daddy issues” …and I want to sing it from the roof tops!

Yes, I will hang this right over the bed …how dark is my sense of humor?

I’ve been looking around for something fantastic to hang over my bed.  I specifically want a stretched canvas piece that will stretch across.  I love how it looks and it won’t kill me when it comes crashing down in an earthquake.  It’s not the easiest format/size to find.

I did come across some cool pieces by artist Nikki Galapon.  One of which is the piece above.  I dig the colors and font.  But I don’t feel compelled to hang it on my wall.  The thing that struck me as amusing was the vision of a single gal hanging that over her bed.  A date comes to her place and sees this neon sign straight up saying “I’VE GOT DADDY ISSUES” over the very place he wants to be.  99% of guys would be in their head going “Ooh, oh, man…ah well, let’s DO this!” and carry on …then wonder why things start getting weird.

Hey, I can say what I want.  I grapple daily with said issue.  For a long time I tried to act like I moved past that point and moved forward but the truth is, you can’t …not completely.  It leaves a hole.  I think I’ve grown more adjusted over time and it’s not to say all women with “daddy issues” (and there are a LOT of us, in one way or another) are train wrecks you don’t want to touch.  That’s a case by case sort of thing.  HOWEVER, if you come across a gal with an industrial “daddy issue” sign over her bed …or say she has a pair of velour pants that say it in rhinestones across the butt …run.

As I was saying before, the artist has other cool pieces and I don’t even dislike the piece in question …I just saw it and had that amusing vision and felt compelled to share.

melissa mccarthy: oscar nominated

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

THESPIAN.

AS SHE SHOULD BE!!!!  Color me surprised when I took a gander at the Oscar nominations and Melissa McCarthy got recognized for Best Supporting actress for her role in (easily) one of my very favorite movies of 2011 Bridesmaids.  While being surrounded by a strong flawless cast of comediennes, she was hands down the show stopper of the film.  The Academy Awards usually take themselves so seriously, it’s nice to see them recognize this performance.  I firmly believe, when done WELL, comedy is harder than drama.  However, I also noticed two women from The Help were nominated in that category as well.  It was a good enough movie, but Oscar nominations, really?  So really, there’s no accounting for taste.  I stand by my opinion on that event being good for nothing but a fashion show and has nothing to do with films since it’s all industry paid for anyway …but that doesn’t take away from my excitement for McCarthy -yay!  I’m happy she was nominated.  If she actually manages to take home the win I’ll be surprised, but it’ll be a really happy surprise.  I’d love to see that, but I’m guessing someone from one of the more traditional Oscar picks will take it (“The Artist” anyone?)

McCarthy has already promised to refrain from swearing or saying anything inappropriate at Glenn Close when she attends the generally stuffy ceremony.  Oh I don’t know, I think Glenn would be amused.

oh, cool, they found a severed head in my back yard…

Oh yeah, it’s all glitz and glam around here…

Okay, so not exactly my back yard.  But close, eerily close.  I pretty much live right below the Hollywood sign nestled up in the hills.  I enjoy feeling like I’m removed from things and am surrounded by an unexpected amount of nature while at the same time I can drive 5 minutes down and be in the middle of Hollywood.  It’s rather ideal to me.  No, I’m not trying to sound like a cool kid, actually, it comes with a ton of annoyances …but not as big as what I’m about to share, so more on those other pesky annoyances at a later date.

So last night, there were (at least!) two police choppers flying around my neighborhood.  One was hovering and the other had a search light grazing the area.  This is went on ALL night.  This morning/afternoon they were STILL out there!  I know, that doesn’t sound like anything.  But trust me, it gets old fast.  This is a very lovely neighborhood.  In fact, despite the unique annoyances of living where I do, I remind myself that I’m a very lucky lady getting to reside where I do and consequently shut up (mostly). I’m accustomed to the occasional idiot thinking it’s a good idea to try climbing to the (very restricted and supervised) sign and a cop will come out and that will be that.  Well…they found a human head today …not attached to a body.  Then they found a human hand, I’m assuming it was once attached to the same body the head was once on.  Well, that just REALLY puts the other “annoyances” in perspective.   Those choppers are starting to make sense.  I wonder what else they’ve found since…

I don’t have much specific information.  I don’t watch the news.  Hey, it would usually be talking about something like the Golden Globes’ dress hits and misses …that is L.A. news …it seriously is.  Or, it’s negative stuff I can’t do anything about and it’s being spun for entertainment purposes/ratings.  Gross.  So, I have some article reading to do.  I guess.  I don’t know how much I want to know.  I enjoy walking my dog (Bowser, in case you weren’t in the know) without feeling skeeved out. It feels like a morbid thing to read up on all the details…given the fact…it now is what it is.  But it certainly felt like something to mention under the category of “things going on in my neighborhood.”

Anyway, thought that was an interesting goings-on in my neighborhood.  How are things in yours?

UPDATE:  Still not a lot of information aside from it being a 60 something year old man’s head.  A DOG came trotting out from the bushes with the head in its mouth on a hike (SEE?! My fear regarding my Hollywood Hill hikes with Bowser aren’t exactly unwarranted! …and to think I used to only really be concerned about rattle snakes and coyotes …bo-ring).  Oh, and they found another hand …it’s like a morbid Easter hunt around here.  Lovely.
