Doggies!

Chasing That Feeling

We adopted two pooches over the weekend, they’re originally from a shelter over in Montreal, Canada. The pups are a Shih Zu/Maltese mix, 9 months old, and weigh in at 7 & 9 lbs (3.14 & 4 kg). They’re remarkably energetic and have succeeded in freaking out the cat. It’s interesting to watch since they’ll gang up on her, one going around the left side while the other circles around the right. Plus they’re just as fast as the cat, so her only advantage is her ability to go vertical. So now my bedroom is the designated cat zone, with a baby gate to prevent raids, while the office is the DMZ.

Anywho you can find more doggy pictures here.

Luci has her own set as well.

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo!

Buffalo

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo!

This is actually a proper sentence. How you may ask? Why, through the wonderful homophone! A homophone is a word with more than one meaning. In the case of buffalo it means the animal, the city in New York (which is famous for it’s hot wings), and the verb which means to bully. So basically the sentence is saying that the buffalo from Buffalo, which other Buffalonian buffalo buffalo, also buffalo Buffalo buffalo. See easy!

For more info on this and other homophones visit Wikipedia!

If you thought the US DMV was bad…

If you thought the DMV in the US was a horrible tortuous proccess, you should read about the process in China.

My heart sank when the military uniform lady told me the forms must be filled with a felt-tip or fountain pen (I used a ballpoint pen, sinfully). I was grateful when she allowed me to trace all my writings with a pen she provided. I felt like a kindergarten kid (look Mom, I traced.) She examined my documents for about 5 silent minutes and started this lightening fast blurry chopping sequence. I was told to wait for few minutes for my “permission certificate for the test.”

Sounds like fun. I wonder why China hates ballpoints.
