Lots of things - for your amusement.

First of all, this has GOT to be the BEST title for a movie EVER: "Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death". It wins. And YES, I rented it. Haven't watched it yet, though.

Second, I did watch "Black Snake Moan", which was a really good flick. Both Christina Ricci and Samuel Jackson did a great job - and (hold your breath here) Justin Timberlake can actually act. Who knew? Anyway, Crazydogmama recommends it.

Third, we now call Louie "Pablo" and here's why:

Background: Louie is our fuzzy little Cairn Terrier with an attitude the size of Asia. Most of the time he is a cuddle-bug who makes me laugh. In the morning when I'm getting ready for work, he goes and lays in his crate because he knows I'll be leaving soon. This has been our routine for 8 years. When I actually go to leave, I shut the door to his crate so that he doesn't destroy my house while I'm gone. This has never been a problem in the past - he just sleeps until I get home. HOWEVER, in the last 6 months, he has decided that the shutting of his crate door sucks big donkey dick, and he starts barking and snap-growling when I start to shut it. This is NOT acceptable behavior, and I won't have it, but I had no idea how to stop him from doing it. Jim finally decided to try spritzing him with "Bitter Apple" when he starts the snap-growling - and it worked! The damn dog shut right up, then proceeded to to smack his lips and dramatically hack. (it doesn't hurt the dog, it is made for dogs) We now call it "Holy Water" for our partially possessed dog. :) As Jim described this process to me on the phone, this was how the conversation went:

Jim: It works great! In fact, it was kinda funny.

Me: Cool! We should associate the act of spraying him with a command of some sort so that he will stop doing it when we just say the word. You know, use the "Pablo's Dogs" theory.

Jim: Pablo's Dogs? *snickers*

Me: Yeah, you know, the theory everyone learned in Psych class with the salivating dogs?

Jim: That's "Pavlov's Dogs", dear heart. *giggling loudly*

Me: *Starts laughing so hard that almost has to pull the car over*

Me, the next morning: Come on Pablo, its time for your holy water.

*also applauding use of "sucking donkey dicks" which is way underused these days*
