Today, we took Buddy and had him groomed. They cut alot off, more than I’d probably prefer in the future, but it’s not bad. He looks alot smaller now so I guess he had a ton of hair. I was really worried about leaving him, but the groomers said he made friends and even a Westie girlfriend. He slept all the way home and most of the evening so he either played the whole time or he had a really stressful day.

I’ve officially given up on my Vineyard Yankee Candle. I’ve tried to suffer through it, but it’s so sweet it makes me feel sick. I usually love Yankee Candles, but this one is terrible. It’s been replaced by a Cranberries and Frost Febreeze candle. They’re my favorite and only sold during the winter so I buy them and save them when they go on sale at the end of the season. Sadly, this is my last one, but it was worth it to get rid of the Vineyard smell.

It was a nice day until some storms moved through this evening. When I got home from the gym and walked Buddy, the sky was darkening. It started raining why we were out there, but he didn’t seem to notice. Had it already started raining before we went out, he wouldn’t ha e wanted to go. He’s not much for rain. I can remember Rags didn’t care for it either. He would do his business and be back at the door less than a minute later.

I don’t know why, but I’ve had The Ramones stuck in my head all day. I haven’t even heard their song in forever, but I couldn’t get rid of it today. I’m not complaining though because it distracted me while I was trying to get my pages done at work and waited three hours to get an ad issue fixed.

Yes, I am reading The Hunger Games. No, I’m not just reading it because everyone else. I’m actually intrigued by the story. The whole premise is taken straight out of one of my favorite short stories, “The Lottery.” That’s the English major in me. If you’ve never read “The Lottery,” you should. It’s about this town that each year selects one citizen as a sacrifice. The 12 districts of Panem also select their own each year as a sacrifice. Pretty similar, right? In “The Lottery,” the person chosen is stoned to death in order to ensure there will be a plentiful harvest. In “The Hunger Games,” the chosen are sacrificed at the hands of the others with the winner earning good for its district–a plentiful harvest of sorts. I rented “The Hunger Games,” Saturday afternoon on my Kindle (thanks Amazon Prime) and I’m about 65% through it. When I finish I plan to see the movie, because from the previews, it looks like they pretty much honor the book.

My parents bought Buddy a tree stump that has squirrels in it. The stump has holes that he can pull the squirrels out of. He loves it. As you can see, one of the squirrels is a little bit eaten, but that’s only a sign of how much Buddy loves them.

A huge, black spider crawled into my computer today at work. I was contemplating how to kill it when it crawled right in. I tried flipping the computer around different ways hoping it would come out but it never did. Hopefully it’ll come out so I can whack it, it’ll go back outside before Monday or something in the computer will eat it.

I know they’re techincally weeds, but I’ve always loved these little purple flowers. They randomly pop in yards in the first few weeks of spring and I think they’re really pretty. They’re the kind of flowers you pick for your mom when you’re little. I like simple flowers more than complex, fancy ones.
