These are a few of my favorite things.

For lack of a better thing to write about, I figured I'd share a few material things that make me happy.

1. Fetching Tags
I know they're expensive, but if you look hard enough you can find killer deals and discounts. I don't think I've ever paid full price for a Fetching Tag.

Kaylee's taglines are Honey Badger Don't Care, Prepare to Die, My Ship Don't Crash and Shiny! Jayne's tagline is Ain't a Girl, but he also has a fat brass nugget with just his name. Ronin's tagline was I'm a Leaf on the Wind, which is a bit sad because the character that said that line in the movie 'Serenity' died shortly after uttering those words... and Ronin is gone too. Ada's tagline was Two By Two... to match up with Revy's tagline of ...Hands of Blue! When Ads went to another home, Revy got a new tag that says I Swallowed a Bug. It doesn't fit her personality, so she'll be getting another tag as soon as another sale rolls around. Talla's tag is Nut Up Or Shut Up, for obvious reasons. Vanna White is our concrete Doberman, and Advice: 25 Cents was supposed to be for Talla, back when we thought her name was going to be Sage. Get it? Sage Advice? Har har har.

2. Vibram FiveFingers
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking I should shut up about these ridiculous shoes already. Too bad - you can't stop the signal!

To reiterate... yes, they're comfortable. Yes, I like them. No, they do not have arch support - the whole point is that your feet actually work as nature intended, and your arches grow strong enough to support themselves. (It's like yelling GET A JOB! to your arches.) Yes, the will most likely eliminate your foot/ankle/back/hip pain. Yes, they improve your posture. Yes, you can run in them. No, it doesn't actually feel weird having stuff between your toes. No, it doesn't hurt when you step on rocks or hot pavement. Yes, you can wash them in the washing machine as often as you'd like. What do they feel like? Do you remember when you were a little kid and you ran barefoot in the grass? Yeah, that's how they feel. Pretty cool, yes? Yes.

3. Snakes
I don't care what you say, I love snakes. They are adorable, with their cute little tongues and googly little eyes and silly little frozen facial expressions. Wait, I take that back... pythons have silly little frozen facial expressions. Colubrids just look annoyed and indignant.

4. Paco Collars
I have an addiction, but I'm not admitting that I have a problem. Yet.

5. My New Camera
Out with the old, in with the new. It was hard saying goodbye to my nine year old Canon Rebel XT that had served me well since 2003, but it was time to move on.

6. Raw feeding (and my new deep freeze)
Come June 9th, I will have 300lbs of raw meat in my brand new deep freeze. We dropped a large amount of money on the freezer, but it'll pay for itself in only a year of feeding raw instead of kibble. It's huge, so if you ever need a basketball player to disappear, I'm your gal. Just kidding... I won't have room for any dead bodies once it's fully stocked with raw for the dogs.

I also like Netflix, Naked Juice, Pirate's Booty, and GoDog. And the Oxford Comma. And beginning sentences with a conjunction.

It's past my bedtime. G'nite.


  1. All these things are so great! I love snakes, awesome collars and tags, feeding raw, AND my crazy toe shoes. But I am lacking a new camera. I need to remedy that.

  2. Oxford comma FTW! Oh, and Vibrams. And snakes. And I might as well put beginning sentences with a conjunction, too.
