at least it's not a kid.

lately i have been having dog pangs. yes, dog pangs. not marriage pangs or baby pangs or other pangs that girls my age have. no, i have this strong desire to have a dog. i'm not sure where this came from. as a child, we had farm animals. meaning, we had animals but we never really knew how many or their names and if they were still alive or if they had been hit by a car. so really no emotional attachment to animals/pets existed in my childhood. sad i know. i had many friends who grew up with their favorite pet and did everything with their favorite pet and their favorite pet lived to be like 15 and then they had proper burial services for their favorite pet. i just never understood it. however, lately, i found myself randomly laughing when i see a dog with its head out the window enjoying the breeze or smiling when i pass by one of those cute, ugly dogs that weirdly look like their owner. yes, i think my time has come to become a dog lover.

here are 2 dogs that i saw in foco last weekend. they were too cute. my sister was embarrassed that i took a picture, but i don't care. i am now a dog lover and i will take pictures of things i love, i.e. dogs.

pic #1: this dog stood still for over 30 min just staring and drooling. he was obviously in love.

pic #2: the object of his affection. she was looking the other way and totally uninterested. i found this amusing.

new can be good, but old can be great.

i love finding new music. however, that doesn't mean i want to forget about the past artists who still rock it but are not necessarily "new" and in the spotlight. when i was in college, one of my favorite artists to listen to was matt wertz, and just a few days ago when i was preparing my ipod for my mega road trip to california with my best friend kels, a trip that will live in infamy, is when i was reunited again with matt. he is lovely and i hope you will enjoy some of my favorites from him.

he does have a new album called, 'while we're becoming', but my favorite oldies of his are:

this song, 'faith and compromise' has awesome and inspiring lyrics that really make your heart smile.

and finally, this last song helped me through one of the hardest times in my life; 'lonely tonight' was a blessing in song for me.

may your ears enjoy.

i suck at blogs.

let's see what i have followed through with on this blog thingy.

-starting up my beer tour de world again and sharing the different tastes of awesome brews from around the globe. fail.

-writing about new music once a week, finding rad new groups that rock. fail.

-writing on this blog thingy at all. fail.

hmmm...let's see now...that's 3 fails and 0 succeeds. yep. i suck at this.

sorry, i have had no motivation. however folks, i feel a 2nd wind emerging and i'm not talking about my ibs...no, no, motivation for blogging is what i feel. and it, my friends, is coming on strong. after california next week, i will be back in action writing about things; things that probably don't really matter to society but they matter to me, so yah..i'll be back.
