Gold Star

Hudson went to Doggy Day Care today!

He's full of energy and, I think, a little bored. We have a doggy day care place near us. He went today and got a report card! And he got stickers on his report card! And a gold star!

We are, of course, enchanted. And we're hoping he sleeps well tonight.

Frozen in Grand Central

This is all over the web but if you haven't seen it, it's wonderful. Improve Everywhere had over 200 people freeze in place on cue in Grand Central Station in New York.

This is one of over 70 different missions Improv Everywhere has executed over the past six years in New York City. Others include the No Pants Subway Ride, the Best Buy uniform prank, and the famous U2 Rooftop Hoax, to name a few. Visit the website to see tons of photos and video of all of our work, including behind the scenes information on how this video was made.

And the blog entry about it is also really fun.

I read it first, as I do so often, on Mysdirection.

Counter Surfing

I'm making chocolate chip cookies for a Superbowl party at friend's tonight. I put two sticks of butter on the counter to come to room temperature, then Bob and I ran a couple of errands.

When we got back there was only one stick of butter on the counter. One, forlorn stick of butter. I walked all around the house, checked behind the couch, I can't even find the waxed paper wrapper. Shelly is eight inches tall. I realize I cannot say for certain what happened to that stick of butter, but I cannot but help but point the finger.
