The Lake

Yeah, that's right. I'm at work today. Repo, K and I are the only people in America who have to go to work today. And I'm not happy about this. I'm supposed to be at the pool, eating a burger, smelling like sunscreen. Oh well.

Just as a heads up, this post is kinda boring. It's really just an excuse to put yet another cute photo of my dog out for public display. And so people don't think I'm dead. I will not be offended if you skip this post. But you have to say how cute my dog is first. I mean, come on. Look at those ears for Pete's sake.

K, Navy Guy and I went to the lake yesterday. We had a good time hanging out with her family and eating lunch. Navy Guy and K's cousins played with Sammy all day. Sammy chased the ball for about 4 and a half hours straight. He has little blisters on his paws and has been limping around today! Poor thing. This is a picture of him sitting on my lap at the end of the day. Can you tell how sleepy he is? It was his first time on a boat and he liked it.

He thought it was much better than actually being in the water. Of course, this didn't stop Navy Guy from throwing him into the lake. Several times. It was pretty funny. Sammy is like a crotchety old man when he gets thrown in. He snorts and grunts and shakes it off. Now he smells like lake. Nice.

I burned a compilation CD today. This means I have to make a copy for Repo so he won't steal mine and scratch it all up. He will dub half the songs "Chick Songs" and skip them every time. And I have to make a copy for Brunette because I always do. Has anyone else heard that new Prince track, "Black Sweat"? Well, if you see a young blonde girl in the car next to you today, jamming out to some song you can't hear, it's probably me. That song is awesome. And the dumb Bubba Sparxxx "New Ms. Booty" song is stuck in my head. Booty booty booty booty rockin' everywhere!

Repo and I went with K and Navy Guy to play putt putt golf this weekend. I haven't done that in forever! It was fun. Lots of Happy Gilmore jokes.

Also I started What Should I Do With My Life? by Po Bronson. It is the coolest book, y'all. I highly recommend it. Really neat stories of people who have/are trying to find their purpose in life.

Um, that's about it in VB Land. I apologize for being so boring today, but no news is good news, right? I think I will publish my book meme just so you have something semi-interesting to read today!

At least you put the apostrophe in the correct location in "y'all." It's amazing how many people put it after the a.

Who cares if your post was boring? Ultimately this blog is for you, right? Of course Sammy is the cutest dog ever! Did you know that sometimes we call the boy's cat Sammy? Her real name is Samoa but she gets all sorts of nicknames.

Must say I loved that book! I'm actually re-reading it. Nice to know I'm not the only Po Bronson fan :)
