Good news: the neighbor's Rottweiler was not a problem today. Vogon saw it being loaded into a pickup truck this morning and its dog bed had moved off their patio by lunchtime, so I hope the dog has moved to a home with lots of room and its own yard.

...

I am still amused by the t-shirts at T-Shirt Hell. My current favorite says "Who needs big tits?" on the front and "When you have an *ss like this" on the back, although I'd laugh myself sick if we went out with Vogon wearing "I'm Huge in Japan". (Guess what the Kanji characters represent.)

Speaking of casual shirt reading, I need to dig my "F*ck with me, and I will saw off your legs" shirt from Unamerican.com out of storage so I can sleep in it.

...

While mentioning to kenwestervelt that the piano/xylophone toys made by Fisher-Price only have seven notes (no B, insert joke here), I found another funny item: The Sun Does Go Around The Earth, It Says So On The Jungle Gym. I am way too easily amused... and categorizing one's weblog posts by Dewey classification is brilliant.

I would look strange with big breasts (and it would be socially awkward since people generally guess me to be *ahem* underage), so I'm quite glad to have a great arse instead.

If I had both, I'd be the world's shortest living Barbie. (;

What do the Kanji characters say?

"Big dick."

Vogon thought it would either be a hit or terribly offensive to wear, but I think it'd be much more offensive if he wore that and I wore the "I Love Yaoi" shirt from JList.

yay on the doggone!
i hate big obnoxious dogs running lose. hush has never run lose, cept when the kids in the neighborhood ask to play with him, and he's never out of sight, and he comes right to me when i call, which i do if anyone seems to be getting uncomfy.

it's all a matter of doing what it takes to make sure everyone around you is comfy, and i'm sorry you live around jerks who haven't figured that out yet. maybe the boomboom music will die down, too? hope, hope?

hubby loves the smartass tees i got for him. his fave lately says, 'i'm the forth stooge'.

The dog is still there, they're just not making as much noise when it's out, so we're still going to have to do something about it. Regular complaints to the complex management and city animal services (if needed) should do it.

The immediate downstairs neighbors (the ones that throw noisy all-night parties and leave empty beer bottles outside) are moving out at the end of this month. When new neighbors move in there, I plan to greet them and let them know that there's a four-year-old upstairs so I'd appreciate advance notice of parties.

I haven't started buying smartass tees yet, but judging from the condition of some of Vogon's favorites I should in the not-too-distant future. (:

that the piano/xylophone toys made by Fisher-Price only have seven notes (no B, insert joke here)

And, they can't even get that right. Complete the series: A C D ___

Ok, here, let's make it easier with a little punctuation: A C / D ___

(Everyone might not like 'em, but "Back In Black" is still one of the anthems of the 80's.)

And, from the article about the xylophone:
why couldn't they make the alligator an inch longer to accomodate another note?

Just one more mom wondering why she couldn't have one that's an extra inch longer.

Why can't she just have one more 'M' in "accommodate"? What, with glass houses being what they are and all. At least spell checking is free.

But, the real reason is that most corporate execs are tone deaf but hypersensitive to the extra penny that extra inch would have cost in plastic and aluminum. Besides, next year they can release a whole new xylophone missing a G. And, the year after that, one with all the notes, but out of order, figuring that you'll keep buying in hopes that they got it right this time.

(Incidentally, for the record, I'm the world's worst at spelling -- I'd be dead without my spell check. The remark here was intended as humor not insult.)

The author of that blog is a dad, Eric Snowdeal III.

I'm happier letting Laurel play with an electronic keyboard with headphones, so it doesn't really matter to me more than finding the omission amusing. I might buy a mixed-up one just for fun, though...

Unfortunately, I heard them calling the damn dog again last night at 1am, which means that they let it out without a leash, again.

I'm now seriously considering going to Fry's and getting an X10 cam and shining it on the spot, along with motion sensitive lights. That should resolve the issue, as well as the bonus of curing the downstairs neighbors from their habit of parties where the guests throw the bottles everywhere.
