such a gal

I was browsing old posts tonight, and came across this gem:

"So, on our 2 week anniversary, here are some things I've learned about my pup:
1) She LOVES me. And pretty much everyone else she's ever met. But she is my shadow at all times when I'm home. Never more than 2 feet from me. :P
2) She is killer with a tennis ball - and this makes me soooo happy, cuz all I wanted was a dog who would play fetch! (Although she won't bring the ball back until she has spent a good 3 minutes tearing around the yard at top speed with it first...)
3) She is pretty smart (I think)... she can "sit" like no one's business, and is slowly learning other tricks as well (week 2 of puppy school is on Monday).
4) She likes to have a wide variety of toys/chewies that she can choose between - but will always pick Joan over any other.
5) She is pretty much the cutest, sweetest puppy in the whole world! :)

(Not sure why it turned green...) Anyways, thought an UPDATE was in order!

Really, not much has changed since week 2 of life with Lucy Longinotti.
1) I am, far and away, still her #1 gal. (Don't worry Lulu, the feeling is definitely mutual.)
Her new favorite thing? The second I walk through the door, she sprints for the closest tennis ball and forces me to play fetch with her as long as I can stand it. It is hilarious.
Still my shadow at pretty much all times.
2) See above. LOVES her tennis ball. Although now she brings it back pretty much immediately. ;)
3) Definitely smart. But I am bad at bothering with new tricks. Also, terrible on a leash. She prefers to run free. (We are currently working on expanding our "circle of trust" - ie, how far I'll let her get before thinking she might run away...)
4) Joan got mauled by the lawn mower this summer. :O We are all devastated by the loss.
5) Definitely still the sweetest little pal in the whole wide world.

Yay? or Nay?

I'm thinking I need bangs.

I always hated bangs (on me, not on other people).

But now, maybe I kinda love them?

I need input, people!

I am thinking something like these (long hair, long-ish bangs?):

just because...

...Because I LOVE this video more than anything else on the whole internet.
...Because you should too.
...Because it's been at least 6 months since I last posted it.

This Guy.

So, I haven't blogged much lately (other than the flurry of Halloween-related posts...).

It's because I'm trying to spend as much time as I can with my sweet grandpa Tony.
(Pictured with his many granddaughters...)

Cuz our lovely grandma Gay passed away not too long ago.

And gramps has not lived alone in a veeerrryyy long time. If ever.

So, as you can imagine, it's been a bit rough.

Honestly? It's kind of great to be around him so much.

He has lots of stories about old Hollywood stars (who used to come into the old family restaurant, or who he made amazing furniture for). He watches a lot of old movies. :) and that's about it.

For now.

I'm just trying to soak it all in, and learn everything I can about him. Because let's face it, none of us are gonna be around forever. And we should cherish our grandparents while we can.
