Me after watching 47 ferret videos in a row and then making Victor look at them too even though he’s trying to concentrate on his video game:
me: Omg, that’s it. I can’t take it anymore. Guess what we’re getting?
Victor: A divorce?
I will wear him down. Eventually. And then it will be ferret walks and tiny hats all the damn time around here.
And now…time for the weekly wrap-up.
- I got my hair did and after 15 months this seems like a major accomplishment.
- Wanna eavesdrop on a conversation between me and my friend John Scalzi? Of course you do. Also, this picture makes it look like I’m doing a nude photoshoot with Ferris Mewler, who is appalled at the tattoo of his face on my shoulder.
- Well that’s pretty damn good company.
This week’s wrap-up is sponsored by author and syndicated columnist Tracy Beckerman. Tracy is super excited to tell you about her new book, “Barking at the Moon: A Story of Life, Love and Kibble.” Barking at the Moon is about the Beckermans, and the chaos that ensues when they bring a one-dog wrecking ball into their home. From tracking wet cement through the house to shredding the family’s underwear, Riley is a modern day Dogzilla. Yet, this lovable retriever also brings joy, laughter, and a renewed sense of wonder into the household. At times hilarious and heartwarming, Barking at the Moon speaks to life’s challenges, and to mothering children both human and furry. Riley reminds us that no matter what stage of life we’re in, we can learn a lot from the dogs who teach us to stop and smell the fire hydrant. W. Bruce Cameron, the best-selling author of “A Dog’s Purpose” says he’s “utterly charmed by the whole thing, cover to cover,” and Jenny Lawson says it’s “sweet and heartwarming.” Barking at the Moon comes out on Tuesday, June 29th.
