In honor of everyone running Boston on Monday, here’s a little inspiration for you.  Hope it helps!

Enjoy the ride.

Are you running Boston on Monday?  Or anywhere else Ryan Gosling might make you run just a little bit faster?  Have you ever bought a fuel belt based on how good it made your dupa look?  

Wonder Mutt Wednesday

WMW Lab tongue1

“Thombody thed thumbthing abouth the Thrithmuth Thory. I thail thu thee the thumor.” What I think she said was, “Somebody said something about The Christmas Story. I fail to see the humor.” Not sure, but that’s what I’m going with.

Enjoy the ride.

Come on now, admit it.  Raise your paws if your vehicle is covered with a fine layer of doggie drool.  Nose prints on the windows?  Do you even bother trying to clean them up?

Beat Those Monday Blues…Disney Style!

It’s Monday!  And you know what that means….no?  Well let me tell ya!  It’s time for the Magical Mickey linkup over at run.geek.run(disney).  So be a good Disney Dork and go check it out.  Now.  Go!  Now!

Happy Monday Black Dog peeps!  Well, not really but let’s fake it shall we?  Mondays always seem to be so much worse when the previous weekend rocked.  Like….oh, mine!  And the Wonder Mutt’s.

Wheeeee!!!!1

Wheeeee!!!!

In an effort keep the Monday blues away, I thought I’d come up with a few of my favorite Disney things – because Disney almost always makes me happy.  I say almost.  Can we stop printing money just long enough to maybe make the prices of just about, I don’t know, EVERYTHING a little more reasonable?  That would make me VERY happy.  See?

Mickey biscuits on sale?  Yippeeeee!!!

So here goes – in no particular order….

1.  Hanging out in my favorite cave with my favorite peeps.

Well hi there!

Well hi there!

2.  People watching in World Showcase.

The meltdowns are the best.

3.  Hanging out with these characters in Hollywood Studios.

"Quack, quack!"

“Quack, quack!”

4.  Listening to the amazing voices at the Candlelight Processional.

Aaaaaaaalelujah!

Aaaaaaaalelujah!

5.  And probably my favoritest(?) of them all???  Watching Illuminations with my favorite guy, singing every single word to the entire show.  Because I AM that much of a Dork.

oooooooooohhhhhh....aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh

oooooooooohhhhhh….aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh

Since I’m pretty sure your list of favorite things to do at Disney is even longer – as mine is, but my attention span is WAY too short to keep going – please feel free to regale me with some of your great stuff!  Like hanging out at your hotel bar playing “Guess How Exhausted the Screaming Kids Are?”  Or is “How Many Parks Have The Kamikaze Clan Hit Today?” more your style?  Whatever it may be, let’s hear it!  You never know where your next great Disney idea may come from.

Hmmmmmmm????

Enjoy the ride.

Here’s your chance loyal readers and fellow Disney Dorks!  Tell me what your favorite things are to do at Disney and I’ll see how I can turn them into the next round of Great Disney Shenanigans!

I hate golf.  I really do.  But at the request of the hubs, who has spent the last 32 hours straight watching grown men walk up to a little ball, whack the crap out of it, just to walk up to it and whack the crap out of it AGAIN, here is the Black Dog Runs Disney salute to The Masters…

Toby, having been whacked in the head with one too many golf balls, started to experience visions of winning The Masters.

Enjoy the ride.

Is golf one of your favorite sports?  I don’t see the attraction, but that’s just me.  Unless you’re that guy who always wore those horrible pants and drank.  ALL THE TIME.  He was HILARIOUS.  Then again, I can do some pretty good damage at those mini-golf courses at Disney World.  How about you?  Happy weekend everybody!  Watch out for balls flying at your head.  hehehe…..

When The Brakes Fail

They didn’t exactly fail, but they certainly didn’t work as well as I would have liked.

On my way home yesterday, I almost became a statistic.  As I was tooling down the road on my way to the gym, Bonehead #1 decided he just COULD NOT wait, and pulled out right in front of me.  Thanks to some quick reflexes and no traffic next to me, I was able to slam on the brakes – which felt like total mush – swerved to avoid a collision, and kept my Jeep from rolling.  As I proceeded down the road, I knew the inevitable adrenaline dump was coming and prepared for it.  Shaking hands and racing heartbeat?  Why yes, thank you for making an appearance.  But, I was fine, no harm, no foul.  Pissed off?  Well, I AM human after all.

Oh yeah, I was PISSED.

Oh yeah, I was PISSED.

It may sound overly dramatic, (sure as heck does to me), especially since the whole incident lasted maybe five seconds.  But it did make me stop, and in about a second and half (THIS time),  I decided going to the gym suddenly wasn’t quite as important as going home, hugging the hubby, giving the Wonder Mutt proper belly rubs, having a glass of wine, and appreciating the view from this little tiki bar I know.  Because when something happens that makes you realize how quickly life can turn on a dime, everything seems just a little more…well….perfect.

Enjoy the ride.

Have you ever had a really scary incident?  How did you react to it?  Did it make you see things differently afterward?

When Life Gets In The Way…Again

Heeeellllloooooooo there faithful readers!  Remember me?  The funny looking chick who seems to be spending more time doing this than anything else lately?

Make it stop!!!!

Make it stop!!!!

My job has gotten entirely too out of hand and has been taking a toll on everything.  E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.  The stress level is always high, but for the past few months, it’s gotten completely out of hand.  As I’m a firm believer in keeping work at work, you can only imagine how frustrated I am at not being able to do that very thing.  It’s affecting my weight, my mood, my sleep, and my energy level.  And just looking at that makes me feel even worse – if that’s at all possible at this point – as it seems to be an All About Me Pity Party.  Really Black Dog?  Who DOESN’T have all that crap affecting their life?

Huh?

Huh?

One bad thing about all this is how it’s been literally sucking the life out of me, and the one thing I do to help keep my brain from imploding is to write random crap on this blog and hope that someone out there finds it slightly amusing.  With things being as they are lately though, I haven’t had the energy, or the time, to put said random crap together into any way, shape, or form, that anyone may even find minutely entertaining.  And that just sucks the big one.

Just...want....to...peel...face...off....

Just…want….to…peel…face…off….

So forgive me fellow Black Dog Mutts, for not delivering the kind of low-quality, vaguely laugh-inducing, occasional deep-thought producing nonsense you may or may not have become used to finding here,  I promise it will get better.  Once I either hit Powerball or invent something that causes idiotic drivers to suddenly find themselves buried in whipped cream when they drive with their heads up their dupas.

I fail to see the humor in this situation.

How’s life been treating you lately?  Stress seem to be taking up more room in your life than it should?  How do you deal with it?  Margaritas?  Throwing furniture?  Puppy belly rubs?
