Uh, my Nintendog ate my blogwork.

So, I had this great post for today.

It had graphics.

It had music in the background.

It was going to have my first ever You-Tube movie!

(Right in this very spot.) You'd have laughed so hard.

I'd found the most awesome font you've ever seen in your life.

I'd designed an entirely new page scheme. Can you say, fuchsia?

I even had NASCAR sponsorship!

Yes, it was big.

It was going to be my finest blog moment to date...

Then, I went downstairs to get a cup of coffee.

When I walked back into the computer suite to put the final touches on my crowning achievement, I came face to face with the horror.

There on the screen in front of me was Fang, my Nintendog. He had shredded my entire week’s effort.

I know you’re crushed. I am too.

I’m sorry...

I hope this won’t affect the link you were thinking about listing on your site.

It won’t happen again, I promise.

Excuses, excuses! Pardon me for a moment, my Gameboy is calling. I think he fell and scraped his knee or something. ;-)

Didn't mean to make you cry. :-(
And I did not kick your Nintendog! *points to comment* Show me where I did that!

You are very wise if you have learned already never to argue with the pregnant lady. Your beautiful wife is going to be crazy for about a year (hormones have to adjust after the pregnancy too). Just keep in mind that you helped to make her that way and she probably hates it more than you do (the mood swings not the pregnancy).

Trust me I know how good I have it. I'm lucky I lived. I'm lucky I didn't lose my hands. I'm lucky I'm not paralyzed. I may be poor but I've always managed to pay the bills. I may have been without a home on more than one occasion but I have always had a place to stay until things got better. I may have gone hungry but it has never been for long. I am well aware of the fact that millions have it much worse than I do. Having said that I still reserve the right to bitch on occasion. I'm good at it. I've had practice. ;-)

My day got good really fast this evening though. I found out one of my poems is a semi-finalist in a contest and it is going to be published (it's called Temporal Flux and can be found in my Sept. archive). I am going to be a published poet. Huh! I laughed so hard I cried. I only submitted it to the site to have it copyrighted didn't even consider that they would give it a second glance. Life is weird.

Feel free not to post this since it's so long and more of a note to you than a comment on your blog.

Hope this finds you warm and dry.

Now, now...this dog stereotyping has reached an all-time low. Eating one's blog...can you imagine? We've been providing slackers with the no homework excuse for years now and what do we get in return? As I've stated before: the very idea of the family pet as the scapegoat for the human child’s inability to commit is unprovoked and downright malicious. I take great issue with the common dog portrayed as a drooling, dim-witted creature whose purpose in life is to satisfy an overactive oral fixation. Words like “slobber” and “goo” leave little room for the imagination to conjure anything else but an offensive stereotype.
Pardon me, but I am generally an agreeable canine who appreciates human companionship, but I must insist that respect is a two-way mirror.

I don't have this problem. The Nintendog is in a Havahart... He keeps the men company...
