Some things for Thursday

We love going fishing.  period.  It’s one of our favorite past times.  MacGyver is so good at fishing that he should be a captain and I’m not even kidding you.  He’s very patient and always willing to teach you what you need to do in order to catch certain fish and most importantly, he knows where to catch them.

The only issue that I have when we go fishing is that MacGyver can stay out there for days.  Even in a rain storm or ridiculously hot weather or after dark when you’re all tired because you’ve been out all day.  If the fish are biting, he ain’t leaving.

We don’t have to worry about that anymore.

We got another boat.

This one has a cabin underneath and an actual toilet, which means I no longer have to use a bucket when I have to pee and we’re offshore.  Too much info?  Any how, I’m excited.  And also, I’ve convinced MacGyver that we don’t need 3 john boats now that we have two big boats so he’s going to sell two of them and I get half the yard back so, bonus.

Did you see the story about the homeless guy who found a lost race bib during the London Marathon and then he put it on and finished and grabbed a medal?  Well, he was just sentenced to jail for his crime.  Seriously.  You have to read the story.  You can click on the image to read the article in full.

CheatAlso yesterday I heard another story about a runner who was almost abducted.  Fortunately, she did everything right and she was able to get away and the entire thing was actually caught on video.

That is so scary.  I mean, this was in broad daylight!  What amazes me the most is how she managed to actually pull out her phone and snap a picture of his license plate as he sped away, which eventually led to his arrest.  If you can watch the entire video please do so.  The commentators make good points about staying safe when you’re out running as well.

That’s it for me.  Work is calling.

What steps do you take to make sure your safe when running alone?

Thursday, some things

Remember when I used to have a blog and wrote things on it like, a lot?  Yeah, I forgot too.

The truth is that I’m still working on this year long project and it’s so time consuming I barely have a moment to spare.  Oh, and also it has been raining for like a year, (actually 4 or 5 days) and the grass and weeds are taking over.  So yesterday we got a break in the rain and I spent the better part of the day weeding the mulch beds and trimming the massive overgrowth that is my lawn.

exhausting

Remember how I told you that MacGyver and I had been on the Keto Diet but we switched back to our regular Paleo diet?  Well, for some reason MacGyver has managed to stay in Ketosis even with eating a few more carbs and he has lost a whopping 9 pound WITHOUT working out.  I however, am working out an hour to an hour and a half every day, eating less than 1,500 calories a day with a carb count under 75 and somehow I managed to gain 2 pounds in the last 2 days!

This is an accurate representation of me this morning:

I cannot believe this shit

Here’s the plan.  There is no plan.  I’m gonna eat when I’m hungry, continue to work out and fuck it.

Did you see the news reports of the 30 year old who was evicted from his parents home?  This story was so great I wanted to posted it yesterday for WTF Wednesday but I didn’t have a chance.  So today, I am giving you the most awkward interview ever.  Oh, and also, this man will never in his life go on another date.

How is your week going?  Hopefully better than that guy!

What is your emergency?

We finally got some good news at the vet yesterday.  That morning I took Hank for a little walk and he pooped a little soft poop.  Not that you need to know that but really, you do.  When we got to the vets office Hank’s little swelling was almost unrecognizable and the vet determined that there was no obvious hole from a hernia and it must have been swollen because of his stomach issues, so we could just take a wait and see approach.

But then she went on to explain that Hank has very large balls.  Only she didn’t exactly say it like that.  It was more like, the large blah, blah, blah, and the rise in testosterone from the doohicky in the watchamacallit could be a problem in the future.  It could result in a serious hernia that will need surgery.  So I asked her what could be done to keep that from happening and she said, we need to castrate him.

Run Dog Run That wasn’t really Hank’s reaction because he has no idea what castration actually means but it was close to MacGyver’s reaction.

After we left the vet Hank and I came straight home because I am really behind in work and can’t afford to dick around.  When we walked through the lanai up to the back door I noticed the back door was open and I thought I had closed it.

I didn’t give it too much thought as Hank and I entered the house but then I saw this:

wrecked house

Oh My God!

I slowly backed up as I dialed 911 and then I heard the bird make his loud ‘PEW’ sound and I was hoping he was okay and I was wondering where Boomer was and hoping no one had hurt him.

Just as that thought entered my head and the 911 operator answered the phone I looked down at the floor and saw Hank’s food bowl, the very same bowl I had put way up high on the table so that Boomer wouldn’t eat it while we were gone.

Emergency Services Lady:  911 What is your emergency?

Me:  Bad dog, BAD DOG!

Emergency Services Lady:  Excuse me?  Ma’am?

Me:  Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry.  I thought someone broke into my house but it was just my dog.  My dog is the thief, a food thief.  I’m so sorry.

The operator laughed and asked me if I was sure I was okay and I assured her that I was but that I couldn’t say the same for my dog because he was in big trouble.  We hung up after that but I think she had to follow some sort of protocol, (or else she just wanted to hear about what kind of idiot calls 911 for a dog food burglar), because she sent two cop cars by.

I was mortified.  Boomer was still in a food coma.

Do you have dogs? 

Have they been spayed or neutered?  If so, did you do it when they were younger or older?
