This is the sweetest story!

Long-lost Lab brothers find each other at Wisconsin dog daycare.
By ANNE JUNGEN La Crosse Tribune

Wallace and Gromit were abandoned.

While at the Coulee Region Humane Society, all the identical yellow Labrador retriever brothers had was each other.

Then, when 5 months old, each went off to separate homes last June.

Jump forward to this month.

The owner of Diggity Dog Daycare in the Airport Industrial Park noticed two yellow Labs would “play like crazy” whenever they got together.

“They love playing chase, ring around the picnic table and face wrestling on the couches,” said Pat Kucera.

He mentioned the dogs’ unusual fondness for each another to their respective families.

It made Cyndy Lamb think. She never forgot about the other Lab who had been with her Cooper when she took him home from the Humane Society.

So Lamb pressed Denice Mack, who had the other Lab, for information about her Levi.

“I asked her where she got him,” Lamb said. “When she said he was 5 months old when she got him, my heart stopped.”

Cooper, too, had been 5 months when she adopted him.

The two are convinced Levi and Cooper are the former Wallace and Gromit that had been at the Humane Society last June.

“I was so excited because when we adopted (Levi), we knew there was another yellow Lab out there, and we wanted to find him and get together with him,” Mack said.

That the brothers would end up at the same facility months later, “I find it amazing. I mean, think of the odds of that,” Kucera said.

The humans now are hoping the dog brothers will connect outside Diggity Dog Daycare — Denise and husband Curt have extended a “play date” invitation to Cooper and Lamb.

“I’m definitely going to take them up on that,” Lamb said.

Looking for a new makeup?

Even if you're not, I still think you should try this: Everyday Minerals. I'd never tried a mineral makeup before, and I didn't understand all the gushing testimonials: "Oh, I just tried it today, and it is amazing!"..."I just got it, best thing ever"...yada, yada, yada. More importantly, I didn't think that a powdered foundation could cover the dark circles under my eyes as well as the heavy goop I usually use does.

As a part of my whole Not Going To Be Fat And Ugly Anymore Campaign, I've been wanting to get back into makeup. But I found that my skin is different and what used to work for me, no longer did. So I asked around for recommendations. Someone mentioned Everyday Minerals, and I ordered their free sample kit. It comes with 3 foundations, one concealer, and one blush. Not large amounts, but enough to figure out what colors and formula will work best. You do have to pay for shipping, but it was under $5.00.

And I'm suddenly one of those people who say, "I just got the product, and OMG it's fabulous!" Really. It feels SO much better than that liquid slop I used to use. I feel like it's so quick to put on; just swipe, swipe with a brush. Really nice coverage, but natural looking, too. And my dark circles? I was amazed at the concealer. Furthermore, it's all-natural, and not icky for your skin. It likes your skin. It wants to be best friends with your skin.

I'm still going through my samples, trying to figure out which color and formula I want. But then I'm DEFINATELY going to order the Starter Kit: 2 foundations, 1 blush, 1 concealer, 1 finishing powder, and 1 brush, for $28.00. If I were going to buy my usual stuff from the drug store, it would cost more than that. And I can't wait to try the green concealer, to cancel out the red of rosacea.

Everyone should try this. Really. Go! Go! Order your free samples!!

My son, the ninja

So, the other day, Jake started to show me how a ninja could use anything as a weapon. He decided to demonstrate with a belt of his, one that has a particularly heavy buckle. He started swinging it over his head, and explaining something that I didn't quite catch, as I was in the middle of washing dishes, and I've told him a million times that I can't hear him when the water is running.

Jake: ...(stuff I can't really hear)

Me (Not liking the swinging of the belt over his head AT ALL.): Be careful with that! Remember, you're not really a ninja!

Jake (After finally getting hit with the buckle, as we all knew was inevitable): The only part of me that's not a ninja is my balls.


I'm ever so proud.

Good Lord!

I learned something new today. I learned of the existance of the geoduck. I was going to post a picture, but I think it will be more fun if you all just Google the word 'geoduck' and look at the images. Really. Go ahead. I'll wait.

Did you see what I saw? I mean, I consider myself a fairly mature person, but when I look at the geoduck, all I see is...well, I'm sure you know what I see.

Did you all know about these??? I sure didn't. What was God thinking that day? Just more proof of his sense of humor, I suppose. Oh...that God! Making silly looking creatures like this. Such a prankster!

Let's play a game. Post your favorite geoduck picture here. (Er...I know you can't post a pic in my blog, so just leave the url in a comment, and I'll post them here.)

Only ONE person wants to play 'let's find the funniest geoduck picture'! (Well, two, but one didn't work. I'd still like to see that one, Min, if you want to try again.) Fine. Don't play. [/pout]

Anyhoo, here's the winner, courtesy of Eileen:
Congratulations, Eileen! Here's your cookie:

3/22 Min's picture made it! And it was worth the wait:
Thank you, Min! Here's your cookie:

A poem:

Rifled my way through an old box of pictures and stuff tonight. Found this. It is the Best Poem Ever Written. It was written by my friend Lisa, back in high school.

By the window I sit
With a tear in my eye
Wondering and waiting
For you to pass by

Will you pass by?
Do you still care?
I will never leave
I will always be here

I know in my heart
We can work this out
And in my mind
There is no doubt

I want you back
Don't go away
I need you more
Each and every day

You're all I ever think about
And all I ever will
But I'm not going to sit here
In this windowsill

Crying and crying
For my love for you
Only wishing that
You loved me, too

By this window
You must quickly pass
Before I stick my head
Right through this fucking glass

This was me...

when I was 17. (1986)

You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need. You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law. While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top. You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!

(Pretend it says you ARE a cool parent. Or pretend I'm not a parent yet.)
