kibble shoots

the highlight of nacho's day is when eli gets fed and nacho gets a dozen of eli's kibbles thrown into his face.

the highlight of my day during the first 8 years of my life was when i would go to bed and then get 'shoots' which involved one of my parents bringing in a dixie cup of water for me to drink and then they threw the leftover drops in my face.

reflected recycling

especially when i lived in a neighborhood subdivision for a few months, i noticed that the number of women's morning walking groups increases on recycling day, and i think it's so they can snoop around at what their neighbors are consuming.

world cup static

we have been having major trouble with charter communications since a lightning storm last monday night fried the cable.

a tech guy finally came out thursday for over 2 hours and replaced the whole cable from the street, but it only made it worse. the internet cuts in and out for no apparent reason. the phone stops working. the cable stops working.

it was like stepping back in time 30 years watching the world cup yesterday. the static fuzz on the TV was kind of charming after all the HD lets me see every stitch in every shirt.

but i just can't bear this life without reliable internet so they're coming out again this afternoon to try to fix it for good.

long legged eli

eli is mostly a chocolate lab, but he's got some other stuff mixed in there, as evidenced by the bright white star on his chest that is hard to see unless he is on his back, which is very rare because he is extremely alert and dominant and doesn't like to be flipped over.

he misses out on belly rubs but he catches more bugs this way.

his back legs seem just a little bit too long, i think he might have some german shepherd in him.

if there is ever a flying stinging insect in a room that i would like removed, eli is happy to help.

he is an excellent swimmer and ball chaser.

he wears a bra when he goes for a walk and it has cut down the pulling by 99%.

marco's pizza spinach slice

this pizza rules.
the crust is not too thick and not too thin, and perfectly salty and crunchy and soft and fresh out the oven. the sauce is tangy and not too sweet and full of chunks of tomatoes.
the service is great.
they have good specials too - wednesdays and saturdays are half price bottle of wine day. tuesday is 3$ pint day.
highly recommend!

hopping nacho solstice

went for a solstice hike yesterday in pisgah national forest. nacho likes this kind of activity. we all like this kind of activity.

had a tough time finding a way to a good swimming hole after scrambling through rhododendrons for a couple hours, licking a centipede, and nacho almost falling over a waterfall, so we got back in the car and went to courthouse falls and jumped in the deep pool under the freezing waterfall there.
