Surprise in the Backyard

Did I ever write about the guy who tried to break into our backyard? I was reminded of it today when we let two (thank God it was only two - the friendly two!) of our dogs out in our fenced backyard before leaving for lunch. Surprisingly there was a man standing in one corner who, when Perdita appropriately barked and growled at the stranger on her lawn, swung his long-handled tree trimmer things (apprently they are called "loppers") at her. Thankfully, Frinklin called Perdi off before she was hurt and yelled at the guy to calm down. The guy began scaling the fence and said he was from next door and was preparing to cut back the tree in his backyard that hung over our fence.

"Next time, knock on my Goddamn door and let me know!" was Frinklin's reply, but the guy wasn't paying attention and was slipping over the fence even as I was walking out the door after hearing Frinklin shout.

"What's going on?" I asked as I saw a leg diassapear over the fence.

"Stupid guy in our backyard trimming his tree."

"Oh my God! What if we had let The Jeffrey out?" I stared at Justin. "You're lucky dude! I yelled, "If we had let our other dog out he would have ripped your legs off!"

"I've always been lucky!" came a voice back.


I'll write about the backyard break-in story tomorrow.

It's been a long time since I've hated on some neighbors. Feels good. Feels real good.

We've had lots of stuff stolen this year, almost makes me want a man eating dog.

Ok, not really. But I occasionally entertain fantasies of such nature.

I read this and if felt like the old saying "Misery Loves Company!" I was all of a sudden hit with a financial disaster which forced me to move out of my house and pack all my shit into storage and live out of boxes in my parents basement! Not to mention, it's not just me but me, my daughter, and out 2 dogs and 17 year old cat! It is devastating! I also don't qualify for a hardship withdrawal. It is so frustrating because it makes you almost regret putting the money in a 401k rather than in something liquidable in case of an emergency! It's totally insane! I'm broke, in debt, credit is maxed and I can't get a break anywhere! I have money in a 401k that they will tax the hell out of and it's just PATHETIC!

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

I believe that avoiding processed foods may be the first step in order to lose weight. They can taste excellent, but ready-made foods have got very little nutritional value, making you try to eat more only to have enough electricity to get through the day. If you're constantly consuming these foods, transferring to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will help you have more vitality while taking in less. Good blog post.
