Haven’t been able to take Honey for a walk. She’s not sure what to do with herself. So she’s settling in to a second round of butt-licking.
Just did a drill at boxing class called “bunny hops.” They sound cute, right? Benign. They are not.
“I’m going as a peanut allergy…” I love Brittany’s lines. Also, while I’m on the subject, Santana makes me feel funny… #glee
Her: The funny thing is that whenever Bailey tries to mount, he’s like a foot away. Me: Delusions of grandeur. #dogparktweets
Got squeezed between two alpha females last night in bed. What’s the next size up from a Cal King? Oh, yeah…the floor.

A new post from my writing blog… Full Post Here Excerpt: The impulse to die and the impulse to start over are really the same thing. I’ll do the one so long as I can’t do the other. The reasons why I can’t are many. And the reasons why I can’t are not impressive. Maybe my house is too messy. Or maybe it’s wet outside and I like rainy days. But the dialogue....
Just spent five minutes cleaning my steam wand. I really wish that was a #euphemism.
I’m going to do that now, too. I love this. RT @JadAbumrad: I watch this once a day: http://bit.ly/bIBI3h

MoMA this afternoon, followed by @MemphisBroadway tonight. Took me three years, but I’m finally getting this NYC thing down.
Drinks in midtown last night has lead to wicked brain gremlins in Jersey this morning. At least I didn’t bring back bed bugs.
Her: Socks and crocs sound like something an 80 yr old should wear. Me: I’m practicing to be a dirty old man. I got the “dirty” part down.
I have a crush on Honey’s vet.
Her: I’m playing with my kitty under the bed. Me: I didn’t expect this to be THAT kind of call.
Vet: If the separation anxiety continues, I know a good behavioralist. Me: Thx, but I think I’ll be fine…oh, you mean for Honey?
Retiring flip-flops. Reinstating socks and crocs. I need a pair with a bottle opener in the sole. Related: time to start wearing pants.

diana-vilibert: According to this stat in The Daily Beast, an hour of sex burns 346 calories, “…the equivalent of…four hours of writing.” It pays better too, amiright freelancers?
