Norwich Terrier guards SoHo Apple Store


This little Norwich Terrier was helping out the SoHo Apple store by standing guard outside looking for those rowdy SoHo folks...

Until, he spotted a flirtatious pooch across the way, which made him want to take a flying leap across the street...

But alas, this little Terrier turned around, assumed his duty to serve and protect and decided that while doing so, he would look like the really cute fluff ball that he is:

I MET HOWARD DEAN AND AM PROFOUNDLY CHANGED FOR THE BETTER

Calling out to those of you, buried deep in apathy and cynicism....

I've got great news for you!

HOWARD DEAN IS THE REAL DEAL!!

Jonah and I began the evening as our usual half cynical, half idealistic selves until...
we heard Howard Dean speak!

DEAN proved that he is SMART, SINCERE, THE PERFECT BALANCE OF THOUGHTFUL AND ASSERTIVE, PASSIONATE YET PRACTICAL, IMPRESSIVELY QUICK ON HIS FEET, KNOWS HOW TO SPRINKLE CHARM AND HUMOUR IN THE MOST MEANINGFUL AND APPROPRIATE MOMENTS AND FINALLY...IS TRULY INSPIRING. WIDOWER AND WIDOWER..OR WIDOWER AND WIDOWEE...I SOUND LIKE GEORGE BUSH NOW...FACT AND THEORY...HIS AIDE SAID, WHEN WE MOVE INTO THE WHITE HOUSE, I'M GOING TO MAKE SURE IT'S REALLY WELL FURNISHED...JONAH PERETTI, YOU ARE MY #1 MAN, HOWARD DEAN IS EASILY MY #2 GUY.<--!>

After he spoke, I bee-lined with everyone else to have a moment with him.

I thanked him for inspiring me and asked if I could take a picture of us for my blog.

I reached out my arm and took this picture of the two of us together.

As I revelled in delight at having this prime photo opportunity, I heard Howard Dean say, "ON THE BLOG IT GOES!!"

THE AMOUNT RAISED BY THE END OF THIS MONTH WILL GREATLY DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF THE DEAN CAMPAIGN SO IF YOU WANT TO AFFECT POSITIVE CHANGE YOU CAN DONATE WHAT YOU ARE WILLING AND ABLE THROUGH THESE TWO HOWARD DEAN SITES:

DEAN FOR AMERICA and BLOG FOR AMERICA

It's a damn shame that we're limited to contributing $2000 per person because I keep trying to contribute more than that amount but keep getting reprimanded for attempting to go over the legal limit!! J/K!! J/K!!

What a refreshing change of political outlook to feel hopeful and happy...

THANK YOU HOWARD DEAN.

~Two Little Birds~

Once upon a time there were two little birds (little bird A and little bird B) who lived happily together in a cage...

twobirdsinacage.jpg

They were madly in love, felt they were meant to be, and enjoyed staring into each others eyes...

twolittlebirds2.jpg

Until one day little bird B, admitted that he had been sneaking in a slutty bird while little bird A slept...

He was also ashamed to admit he did not think he could curb his behavior...

twolittlebirdsonesleeping.jpg

Little bird A cried, "WHAT THE FUCK????!!!!"

And the end of the story is that little bird A lived happily ever after in her own cage...

Because sometimes bad things happen to cheating birds...

EZ Wrap Graffiti in Paris

Aaawww...look at how they do graffiti in Paris!

Kindly...using saran wrap is the answer, people!

Of course this isn't how all graffiti is executed in Paris and upon closer look it looks like clear tape but it's fun imagining for a second, NYC graffiti artists armed with EZ Wrap and spray paint, looking TOUGH...

Dogs in cars are cute

Here's an antidote to the pain and suffering caused by the previous post...

A happy dog in Paris...I wonder if the green umbrella was placed there to shield the dog from the sun.

If so, that would be really really nice and fully endorsed by andreaharner.com.

~My Eyes Are Playing Tricks on Me~

Sooo Invisible!! Unbelievable!!

I have never understood these purportedly invisible bra straps.

I mean, aren't they just plastic and cheap and trashy looking?

I can only imagine on a hot day how they feel on the skin.

Verdict: Bad invention.

He was in Paris safeguarding a monument:

oy vay...

Im about to begin a 13 hour train ride from Austria to Paris, hang out in Paris for 5 hours and then head to the airport for a 7 hour flight back to NYC...oy vay is all I can say and if I were a really cute dog, I would probably be looking like this right about now...resigned to the fact that I have to do this but quite skeptical as to how much fun its going to be...

Mannequins are people too!

Paris, France is a dirty place, people...

Have you ever seen a mannequin so inappropriately dressed?

Framed Dog Posters

While in Paris, I realized that I should really get into framed dog posters...

I don't know though if I could ever top this poster of a Parisian sheep dog just post blow-out.

The poster resides in an office and faces the street:

Wedding Wishes

There seems to be talk of weddings and marriages recently and I've decided that I want my wedding to be casual, totally normal and un-orchestrated seeming like this wedding below.

Yoga, Hiking, Earthquakes...and Stereotypes

Being in Paris makes me realize that while stereotypes are often NOT true, they can be at times, QUITE true!
Since I can't post stuff from Paris to prove the aforementioned deep and complex theory, I instead have posted photos which were taken 2 weeks ago in the Bay Area and are to me, very representative albeit stereotypical of CA's Bay Area...

Yoga...

Yoga balls being driven here and there and everywhere...constantly reminding me what I am NOT doing!

yogaballinbayareavolvo.jpg

Hiking and Earthquakes

Hiking and smelling the flowers along the way because in the Bay Area you have the time and places to do so! but also being reminded of the ever imminent possibility of "The Big One!"

...well at least that's what this Neurotic New Yorker thinks!
