hey, i don’t WANT to eat those damn girl scout cookies!

but the little kids are standing out there practicing their guerilla cookie sales techniques.  i’ve just come from a vet appointment so i’m feeling depressed and vulnerable.  i’m looking for a pick-me-up.

the box is 4 bux. i hand her a fiver.  the neighboring brownie says “would you like to donate the remaining dollar to…?”  i say sure, but i have no idea what for.  could have been brain melting girl scout research.  could have been homeless pigs in south america. i don’t know.

just keep the change. i have my cookies.  i’m going home with them.

why the need for thin mints?  after years of obsessing over cody bear’s ailments and flippantly mentioning my cheap dog, my healthy dog, pickles,   she’s been costing me about 300 bucks a week.  the dogs….are killing me.  and i’m letting them.

i’ve talked about wine and beer pairings in the past.  tonight’s pairing?

well, nothing goes better with 100 dollars worth of dog pills like a 4 dollar box of thin mints.

ahhhh. self medicating.

now, back to pickles…

she is overly enjoying her patient role.  she is capitalizing on the fact that i don’t want to lose her and hopping in the car whenever she can.  “rub my head”, “let me linger”.

“and isn’t it time for medicine? and doesn’t my pill need to be slathered in peanut butter? yes? that’s what i thought.”

meanwhile, the bear is fit as ever.  you should see him.

my one wish for all of you is that you can some day cuddle him and feel how thick and plush and luxurious his fur is.  but…be warned:  if you get to close he’ll suck you in with his gaze and next thing you know…..

you’ll be giving him money for vet bills.

that’s how he got me!

jk. i love them. just venting.

good night everyone.

no really….that’s how he got me….

so goodbear has some new activities since she first started blogging.  one can’t miss activity is team trivia every monday night.  (getting excited just thinking about it and it is only friday!!)

so we have this team and….we’re pretty good.  since january 1 we have won 5 times, second place has 2 wins.  there are usually about 20 teams.  our team consists of my photography biz partner(knows many of the music and art questions), abacus (a long time dog park friend great with history and current events), a music store manager friend(knows absolutely everything about current sports and pop culture), a materials engineer (knows alot about music, science and sports) a postal worker (knows crazy amounts of stuff about diverse science categories), a retired biology teacher(has read every book in the english language) a television and non-profit professional(really knows her pop culture), an attorney(current events and geography), an attorney(baseball, movies and random stuff), an attorney(some science and geography) and me(i bring erasers and know a little bit about music)

i think the most fun for me has been trying to predict what he is going to ask each week.

all this goes down at a bar.  some people are there for trivia…some just to drink.  one night i went to the bar between questions to grab a guinness and i saw THIS:

“what IS it?” i asked.

“it’s ABSINTHE!”  some kid said with an excited look in his eyes.  he and two friends were enjoying the prep for their shots!

so that’s monday.  but for the most part, life is still mostly just full of this:

cuddling the bear!  business as usual!
