So Nana has behaved, but tried to con me into getting Chinese food for us for dinner. I tried to explain that I am on a diet. She tried to tell me why I need to keep some weight on me to be healthy. Um, hello? Have you seen my ass lately? That weight ain't coming off without some C4 and a spark.
This is the same woman who has loggaria (diarrhea of the mouth) and speaks before thinking-this isn't just a geriatric habit-she's been doing it for years. I remember walking in on my Mom crying one day because my grandmother told her she was so fat she looked pregnant. My Mom is 175 pounds. Not an oompa loompa, mind you.
So I bring Nana back to earth and crush her wild dinner hopes. Nice try, Granny, but it is good old chicken breast, carrots, and sweet potato for you. She says it is boring. I am so close to snapping at her that she doesn't KNOW what a boring diet is...damn old people. ;-)
Also spent some quality time with the doggies. It's a nice day out, so Pearl was able to hang out all day. She is quite the sunbather, and likes to guard the house from people walking like a half mile away.
That crazy ear is cute as hell, but doesn't work. This is my blind and deaf girl. I know it is hard to tell her apart from her bro, Polar. She is the best damn watchdog I have ever had. Seriously. And she sounds like a junkyard dog when she lets her barks rip. Scary stuff. But what a mushball. Love her to pieces.
I can tell she misses Polar, but she is pretty independent and likes the other dogs just fine. Except Sadie, our little beast from the east-I think Pearl wants her on a cracker with some Brie.
Another funny thing...I got my parents Apple Shuffle's for Christmas last year, along with gift certificates to iTunes. So I set it all up for them, but my Dad has been asking for months if I would come add more songs to his shuffle.
He figures he would bring me his computer and since I have nothing else to do, I could put some songs on it for him for when he is working out at the gym. I don't mind doing this, and definitely encourage him to work out. So I get his list...
Um, yeah, it's long. What is worse is that there are several songs such as 'To Sir with Love', that had a ? following it, then 'British?' So as I am scrolling through the 50 or so versions of that song, I think, which one of these artists is British? Dude... Not to mention the old French songs, that are misspelled without artists mentioned... I don't do French.
So this has also been a music history lesson. Ah, computer illiterate parents, gotta love 'em. I know I do!
