Five things Friday

It's been so long since I've posted now that the only logical thing to do is to write a list post to catch up and what better day to return than Friday!?

Lions and tigers!

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I took this video at The Conservator's Center. Yes, those are lions and tigers chillin out together after a big lunch on the top of that platform. We basically got to get as close to the animals as two chain-link fences about two feet apart. It was incredible.
Lions and tigers and wolves!

I have a new friend!

HappyTriGirl posted a few hilarious pictures with her Frosty in them and I inquired about how I could procure one for myself and, just like that, she surprised me by sending me one! They've even got their own hashtag on Twitter—#Frostythefingerpuppet. Best package ever. It's the little things in life.

Also, is my dog the only one who thinks all stuffed animal-like things are hers? I don't even buy her plush dog toys because she destroys them in five seconds, so I'm not sure where she gets it from.

Pippi's left ear has gotten limp. I'm not sure why. It's floppy now when she walks. 

Maybe it's just gotten lazy in her advanced age of two years old.
Wednesday was the big day.

I had a date night last week. I divulge no other information than that at this time. We decided, after a bottle of wine between the two of us, to drive to Harris Teeter and buy another large bottle. 

We then finished that one, too. And I went to work in the morning. Best idea ever.

Insanity update: starting over. My friend, Mike, decided he wanted to start Insanity and we decided we'd work out together a couple days a week, which involved me starting the program over this week so we'd be on the same schedule. So far I haven't noticed any real changes other than the soreness. Oh the soreness!
That chic on the left shows me up on a daily basis. Bitch.


Do you celebrate your pets' birthdays? Growing up we always did and I'm following tradition. I even sang to Pippi while tossing her treats. She seemed impressed...with the treats.


  1. Love the blog title! Hopefully you drank the small bottle before you drove :).

    1. I promise I had the "five things" idea before I read your post today. We just both have awesome ideas.

  2. Nothing like drinking and then driving to get more booze.

    Was it after all that whine that you decided to call a finger puppet a "new friend"?

    1. Haha I meant wine instead of whine but it kinda works. :)

    2. Nope, I was completely of sound mind. Well, as sound of mind as is possible for me. You should know these things about me by now.

  3. Such a tease talking about getting drunk with a guy and then giving no more information.

    1. That's why I have my imagination. Imaginary Emily is a real slut.

    2. You know who pleads the fifth? Guilty people.

  4. Pippi is so darn cute! WE definitely celebrate pet birthdays...always have.
