light rain my ass @ 10:28 am

Current Mood: okay okay

I think the national weather service is absolutely on crack. I suppose it *could* be light raining right now, but about an hour ago, it was positively pouring and I was positively annoyed because Fiona was definitely taking five minutes to pick a spot to pee. It went something like this, sniff, shake, sniff sniff snif, shake shake shake, look at people, sniff sniff sniff, shake shake. And my situation went something like this. Rain rain rain, get wetter, drip drip drip, drippity drip drip drip drip, anger followed by relief five minutes later when she actually picks a place. Ah the merits of havinga guide dog.

This weekend's highlight was the fact that I caught about a billion bad hands in poker, folded about five really good hands because of aggressive betting, and subsequently lost money. At least I wasn't the first to go out. Gotta be positive. I did last a couple of hours.

Yesterday, Neil and I did my show on KXUA. The university's in the middle of doing this story in a magazine about me, and though I expected it at some point one of those weekends, Russel, my "personal" photographer, came by and snapped about forty photos while I was on the air. I felt like I was a president in a particularly good press conference as every time I went on air, he snapped away. Wait a minute, maybe it would be a bad press conference. Remember the time George was asked to talk about his mistakes? At least I talked during the whole thing. I think it went pretty well though. The photographer's pretty neat, and he's a Democrat too, which is a bonus.

As the show goes, it went well too. St. Patrick's day is happening in about two weeks, and because I play Irish music, you'd never notice, because I play the same stuff (ssdd) every weeek. I am looking forward to the fact that I'll be in L.A. on St. Patrick's Day with Larry. Perhaps we'll have to find neat things to do that night which include consuming relatively large quantities of tasty adult beverages. Perhaps we'll just have to find some live music to listen too. WHo knows.

Today's a work day for me. I need to finish up an assignment that's due tomorrow and try to finish off this exam from last semester. THe deal with that is that if I finish this class and get an A, I will graduate with honors (cum laude) which would be really cool. I'll have to see how I do and report back with my progress.

With that said, I need to go and do more "important" things, or something. Always remember, the only way to tackle life is to tackle your obstacles and make them disappear.

good work on the Boy Scouts! They are almost becoming an endangered species.

I've decided to set aside all my Texas Commemorative quarters -- in your name. Then when I have enough, I'll have a Segway delivered to your dorm so you will no longer have to depend on pickemup trucks to take you places!

AND, I was astonished to learn you grad students are NOT just rolling in the dough! Jeeez . . . maybe you need to transfer to a school with a biger Payola budget!

AND AND I empathize with you and Fiona-the-picky-pee-er. When I take our Samoyed out at O-Dark-Thirty in the morning, I'm usually tastefully dressed in a t-shirt, boxers, and bedroom slippers. She ALWAYS takes her time when I most want her to do her business and let me get back inside before I'm arrested for indecent exposure.

Do I know all about very picky dogs when it comes time to pee and/or crap in all types of weather, albeit it wind, snow, sleet, rain, smog, fog, slush, and whatever types I might have missed. It's really annoying, she'll turn around in circles for freaking forever, or so it seems, before finally deciding to go. I wish she weren't so picky :(. Seriously. You shouldn't have to change your clothes just from taking your dog out when it's raining, should you?

Oh yeah, if you do end up consuming "relatively large quantities of tasty adult beverages," have one for me ;).
