August 6th, 2004



It was before 11 when I decided to go upstairs to bed, and I did read for a bit, but I'm pretty sure I was asleep by midnight. Nonetheless, 8am came too quickly, and I didn't want to get out of bed. Picasso had other ideas! When she realized I was getting up, she bounded out of the room towards the front door. The closest she's come to barking all week is when she realized I'd paused to go to the bathroom myself before taking her out!

Cliff's box o' dog food was waiting for me when I got home last night, freshly arrived from, including some canned Eukanuba. I opened one of the cans when we got back from our morning walk a few minutes ago, but Picasso had already headed back to the bedroom. I put some in her dish, and brought the open can for her to sniff. It got her up, and she followed me back to her food.

Right now she's clipped to the 30' lead I got her, outside on the deck, so she can enjoy the fresh air and explore a little, while I get ready to head to work. This is the first morning I'm heading to a meeting at CCC straight from the house... crossing campus to get there shouldn't be too bad. Is Tower Road still closed? Guess I'll find out.

Looking forward to seeing Alex this weekend, as well as lots of folks at the wedding!
Navy Suit

Comfortable weddingwear

General consensus is that I should wear khakis for tomorrow's wedding in a park, whose invitation says "Wear something comfortable for a sunny (hopefully!) day in the park." Considering how I know the bride and groom, an Apple polo shirt is probably appropriate, too. :-)

It's a good thing I haven't left Picasso tied up on her 30' lead outside and left home at any point. While I was in the shower this morning, she managed to get the lead tangled on a tree. She would certainly have survived, but she wouldn't have been able to get to the dish of water I would have left outside if she were going to be out for more than a little while. Got a couple of cute pictures of her sitting outside by the rock garden wall, surveying her territory, though.
