Jazzy's Dwight Schrute Impression

Out of town for the weekend, and I'm missing the pitter patter of giant feet, so here's a couple of videos I just happened to have on my camera.  Jasmine is FAMOUS for her impression of Dwight Schrute's famous SPIN MOVE:

Here's Dwight: 

And here's Jazzy: 





And here's Greta, my 14 year old, talking back to me.  She is SO SASSY. 





Hotel rooms are way too quiet.  Yeah I know I could get out and do something and talk to people, but sometimes it just feels like it's not worth the effort.  I haven't left my room this weekend. It's a little depressing, but I just didn't feel like getting out and exploring.  The thought of it, for some reason, gave me the heebies.  I am not really all that superstitious, but I will generally try to pay attention to those sorts of vibes.  Maybe it was the story I heard from one of my coworkers about being followed and threatened by a man once when she was out of town for work and went walking around alone.  Maybe I just miss my husband.  I've been wanting us to come up here to the mountains.  Maybe I need to quit reading stuff about serial killers.  Maybe I need to finish this one work report I have hanging over my head....

Regardless, here I sit.  I did do a TON of reading and drawing and Candy Crushing and even some work.  Hoping I can get my groove back next week.  Then I'm working on the Coast for 2 weeks so WOOT! 

Also:  next week my dining room buffet should FINALLY get delivered!!!!

Tennessee Morning Walk









Went for a long walk up a hill behind my hotel this morning to see what I could see.  Saw wildflowers, tracks, large animal poop (my friend saw the picture I took and said it was only a horse - I was sure it was some sort of attack elk), nice vistas, a hilltop swamp, some sunshine, a turtle shell, some cool rocks.  SO glad to be motivated to get outside!!!  Pics included here:

Did not buy...

This.  What IS it?? It looks like it is missing a piece.  See the two holes?    

Someone is Spoiled

My cousin's yorkie, Wilson, in the arms of his Grandma, my Aunt.   Wilson doesn't allow her to have a conversation with me unless she is holding him.  Spoillllled.


Oooo Love!

Spending the night with my aunt on my way home from Memphis tonight.  She has a new piece of art in my room that I love!  She's had it a long time but needs to get it reframed so hasn't had it out.  I love love love the juicy colors.

"Just a Schnecond"

My brilliant and hilarious husband posted this on our giant schnauzer group facebook page this morning.  I love it!!!


"I have invented a new unit of time. It is called, the Schnecond.

This unit of time is relativistic, and it is based on the fundamental amount of time it takes for a Giant Schnauzer to make up its mind if it wants to come inside once you have opened the door. As it is variable, you can imagine that it leads to some pretty complex mathematics, but using the Schnecond in your every day life, when being your Giant Schnauzer's butler, will make scheduling expectations much easier.

Some things of note:
...
The Schnecond is inversely proportional to how much uninterrupted sleep you have gotten. Some people have claimed Schneconds in the 30 to 45 standard second range between the times of 1 and 5 am.

It is directly proportional to the number of night time chirps, croaks, sudden breezes or any other distractions that could suddenly pique the interest of a Giant Schnauzer while pondering crossing the threshold of his or her domicile.

A Schnecond is not complete until the entirety of the Giant Schnauzer has cleared the threshold so that the door may then be closed. No halvies Scheconds, only whole numbers.

Calculating your life span in Schneconds would actually make your age younger than you are currently, though premature aging is a considerable factor in the Schnecond time stream. I am almost 40, though in Schneconds, I'm closer to 10.

Because Schneconds are relativistic and variable, try not to confuse the person not currently owned by a Giant Schnauzer by saying "Just a Schnecond". Some people can't wait all day.

Your Giant Schnauzer will most likely calculate your payroll in Schneconds, unfortunately."
