weekend pickthrough- full puppy takedown edition.

8 08 2010

everyone, meet kazuki. finally, i have a dog to call my own, and it’s totally awesome beyond my expectations (seriously, are you looking at this dog?). but, it’s also totally tiring beyond my expectations. as it turns out, puppies can not be left alone ever, because they will chew/eat/throw up everything you own. this means that i have to get up an hour earlier than usual, i’m responsible for 2+ poop walks per day (including one that eats my lunchbreak every work day), and that i can’t ever really pay full attention to anything… because i’ve got to have one eyeball on that little guy at all times. i’m pretty sure  this is why everyone who squealed in excitement about us getting a dog, punctuated that squeal with the phrase “puppies are a lot of work”. so yes, puppies are a lot of work, and i have absolutely no regrets, but if i owe you:

an email
a graphic design project
a guest post
a blog redesign
a coffee date
or anything else that i’ve probably already forgotten about…

it’s probably because i’m passed out in a pile of shredded newspaper, or out on the streets hunting for a chew toy that simulates the mouth feel of human flesh. perhaps i could make up for my negligence with some quality puppy time?

no seriously… i said my teeth are real diamonds (kanye & new yorker cartoons. two great things that taste great together).

i scored an 8 on this crazy color acuity test, and so far no one else has even come close. it’s your job to put my in my place.

typestaches!

nike does a little recycling. (it involves big asses and lively feminist debate, you’ll love it).

i’d never even heard of such a thing before, but card skimmers are scary and could be hiding anywhere.

food and fashion don’t come in a more adorable package, let’s hear it for my new favorite local blog… sweetersalt!

i hate that supporting my beloved marden’s these days feels like supporting this jackass.

i would also like to send out a big sloppy thank you to original portland, brews & books, and portland maine daily photo for mentioning my cheap eats article (all excellent blogs absolutely worth checking out). what’s also crazy, is that not a single person has mentioned the lack of meat!

Got an 11. (37 year old male.) Good test. 8 is impressive! Considered a job in interior design?

solid! i’ve considered a lot of jobs, but i tend to get lazy and cop out of anything that involves additional schooling. i do have an art degree though (however little good it’s done for me).

Your puppy is adorable! 🙂

I got an 8 too. I guess my pregnant brain isn’t quite as fried as I thought it was! Made my night, ha!

nice work! i always here people talk about “baby brain”, but is it really true? does it really make you think differently? better? worse? are there any superpowers to be gained?

Hello! More puppy pics please.

I realize that Hello could have sounded like a friendly salutation. It was meant more like, “Hello! You just cut me off, douchecanoe!”

ha! well, kat & the infamous qbert have already put our asses to shame. still, pretty kick ass! maybe i can blame my shortcomings on the fact that i have an art degree, but i haven’t used it in a while… i’m out of practice! it’s not my fault!

Oh – big puppy love. He looks so perfect – like a stuffed toy. Absolutely adorable.

he’s a real show stopper. not a single soul can walk by without stopping to marvel at his cuteness. even the vet (who sees millions of puppies) was impressed. puppy win!

go us! what do we win?

you win ultimate victory. it’s the japanese way of saying that there’s no prize, but everyone else who did worse than you is bringing shame on their family, and that’s better than a prize.

don’t feel bad, my friend michelle got a 49! although i think she’s legally blind without contacts… the design blogger who posted the test got a 24, you’re not a failure!

I got a 4 and I fully planned to come in here and be like “4 BITCHES WHAT’S UP” but then saw that people got 2 and then ZERO. ZERO! Jerks.
