I'm Not Buying, Unless You Are A Sexy Pug

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a great week!

I got an unexpected package over the weekend.
Heather from Say It Don't Spray It, created a
scrapbook page of Penny! It really captures her
sexiness. I have it on my fridge, for all to see.
Thanks so much Heather!

In an effort to keep busy, and do something productive,
I started cleaning out my garage. I am finally finished!
I went through a ton of stuff, and ended up donating most of it.
It took longer than expected, due to a neighbor who kept soy
balling in my business. Every time he would see me out in
the garage, he would come over and ask if I wanted to
participate in some sort of condo madness garage
sale going on this weekend.

I kept telling him I wouldn't be selling anything, just donating.
I also told him, due to my pale skin, I am allergic to the sun,
and I have a doctors note specifically stating, I can't sit
out in 100 degree heat all day. He became angry, and
told me my stuff was poo. I was like, "If it's poo,
why would I sell it?"

If you live in Vegas, then you know about the solicitation
problem we have here. It doesn't matter if you are in
your garage, in a grocery store, on the strip, or
just going to your car, someone is going to get
in your face about something. I've never seen
anything like it. And they are not nice
about it.

Just yesterday, I saw a woman get out of her stopped car
at a main intersection, on a red light, in an effort
to hand out flyer's to the motorcyclists
in front of her. No one is safe.

Penny used to ward off these people by barking. They would not
come within 10 feet of us. Now that she's gone, I have to take
it into my own hands. Sometimes I tell them I have H1N1
and they shouldn't come any closer. Sometimes, I say,
"Let me tell you about the voice of Christ I heard
last night." And other times, I'll go into
veganism, and let them know what I ate
the previous night. It works
every time.

A girl's gotta do what she has to do.
I took quite a few drama and improv classes in
my day, and I'm ready to get down to business.

What is everyone up to this week?

wow that is a very beautiful page that was made of Penny. What a wonderful memory. On another note, mum is laughing and laughing abouts the different techniques one can use when approached by solicitors. She will try one of them next times. She likes the ones about Christ.

Hey Dana!!!

So nice of Heather to make that beautiful page for you!!!
Very thoughtful!!!

I was laughing so hard because I use to do the same stuff...I would be out with my girl friends back in the day, and I use to tell weirdo's I had tuberclosis to get them away!!! Sometimes you're just like -really? What is wrong with you!!
People can be rather strange and intrusive! I'm sure Penny has a protective force around you though that you just can't see ; )

I took Acting and Improv classes at Second City and had lots of fun! I finished last year with one Improv class and so need to get vested back in it! It's a great way to take your mind off the day to day realities that come to plague people.

The page is awesome!!! So nice of her to do for you!

I think you should get some of those nasty fake teeth and when your out and someone bugs you...just smile!

Pearl said...

What a sweet scrapbook page! It really captures the sexiness!

That solicitation must get so annoying! I can't imagine! I'm glad you are keeping yourself busy and donating some good stuff. It always feels so good to get organized, even though the process is a pain.

Pearl and I have been pretty lazy. Sitting outside and enjoying spring, mostly.

Thinking of you always!

That was very thoughtful of her to make that memory board of Penny. I got my Penny sticker the other day. Thank you. I'm going to put it someplace very special to remember Sexy Penny always. It's Hump Day, yeah!! Also hot as h*ll here in Florida, so dang humid. Even the dogs don't want to go out!
