Just came home from a walk with the dogs.  Got to a certain place where we walk between two apartment buildings and notice a strange looking creature galloping toward us.

It was too awkward to be a cat, too big to be a squirrel.  The dogs definitely noticed its weird gait and were game to play.  As it came closer, I realized out loud, "It's a skunk."

[ profile] scribefigaro took off at a speed walk in the opposite direction.

I figured we could squeeze by it without an issue, so I poked a little fun at scribe when I caught up to him. "Afraid of a little skunk?

He shot back with, "Even if you win a battle with a skunk, you still lose.  And that thing was charging us."

The logic, he has it.  And I am smell-free tonight. :D

Puppy post

I've been thinking about writing an angsty post, but the kitty post by [ profile] psyco_chick32 has made me want to relate my most recent puppy story.

As most of you know, we have two dogs.  A larger, older (just turned 10!) black Lab and a two-year-old mutt of a puppy who is quite small (10 pounds).  Our little guy is just full of romping, playing, and cuteness while the big guy is regal and dignified.

Well, in our house, the dogs have couch privileges.  We have two couches, a large sofa and a smaller love seat.  The big dog has a favorite spot on the big sofa, on the right corner cushion.  The little guy sits on laps, pillows, the back rests, anywhere he wants that suits his desires at the time.

At night, though, the big guy usually sleeps in his spot on the sofa and the little guy snuggles with us on the bed.

Well, last night, I got up at 4:30 to use the bathroom and notice that the puppy didn't come to bed with us.  I went looking for him.  I found him.  He had taken the big guy's spot on the couch.  He was stubbornly refusing to budge and the big guy was glaring at him, squeezed onto the love seat.  The puppy, who actually prefers nighttime snuggles on the bed, was only on the couch to spite the larger dog!  He only wanted it because the other dog wanted it.

Bad dog!

So I scooped up the little guy and brought him to the bedroom.  When I woke up, the big guy was back in his place on the couch.

I have the cutest dogs ever.

Living at my parents' house, [ profile] scribefigaro and I have just figured out how to download Netflix movies and watch them through the television.  With my parents on vacation, we've been taking the opportunity to find lots of movies to watch.

Last night, there were specific movies we each wanted to watch.  [ profile] scribefigaro had brought up wanting to watch the Korean movie, Chunhyang, a romance.  However, in looking through the Netflix movies available for immediate watching, I discovered that Scribe has never seen Rudy, one of my favorite movies.

Anyway, I insisted we watch Rudy.  Scribe actually kind of liked it, even though he's no big fan of sports movies.

Once it was over, it was still pretty early, so I was like, "Hey, let's watch that Korean movie, too."

Scribe was like, "Really?"

I responded, "Yeah.  See what happens when you indulge your wife?  You get rewarded!"

He paused, then said, "So what your saying is that if I watch a football movie for you..."

"Yes, I'll watch a foreign-language romance for you."

And then there was much laughing as we realized we don't quite conform to gender stereotypes.
