Welcome to the BOMB.

The Blog Of the "Mother" of Bandit.
Bandit is my Hairless Chinese Crested--he's the "normal" one. I, on the other hand, am unrepentantly "pet-crazy." You know the type--the spinster who lives in the haunted house three blocks over with 72 cats...okay, so I don't have 72 cats, and my house isn't haunted--but my dogs wardrobe is better than mine! Need I say more? :~)
I've never been consistant at journaling, so the timing of my blogs will be sporadic at best. I just hope they are as entertaining to you as they are to me; however, be forewarned: Most of my blogs will be about The BaldOne. In spite of his Don King "do," I think he's just as cute as any of the Brothers B!
Now, if I can just remember not to get him wet--or feed him after midnight...

About Me

My photo
My bags are packed and I'm always ready to seek out an adventure with Bandit and Moggy in tow. Bandit is my thirteen year old Chinese Crested, who I frequently call The Bald One or The BaldOne Boy (like he was one of the Baldwin Brothers). Moggy’s full name is Pip-Moggy. He’s my two year old gansta-resuce kitty. I couldn’t decide between Pip (which are the spots on die and domino tiles) and Moggy (or Moggie when I mistakenly thought he was a she), so I combined the two. Moggy refers to the British term for "cat of unknown parentage .” So in essence, I have an almost bald dog, and I’ve named my cat “Spot.”

I'm Thinkin' it's Gonna Be Another Expensive Day...

Currently I'm at the dealership getting a brake light repaired. Since I've been working so much overtime it's been weeks since I have had time off when they are open, so I've been driving on pins and needles feeling like I have a huge target on my backside. Since time change is nearly upon us, and I'm driving in the dark just about everywhere I go, I really am more visible than normal. The good thing about the overtime is that it gives me the resources for unforeseen exlpenses.
Unfortunately, I really had the overtime money ear-marked for something else, but it is what it is. So my mood (partly because of the car expense is not the best. But its also not the best because I'm just not in the grestest of moods. Since I'm less than perky happy, it caused me to recall another gripe i have against the dealership--the new oil change stickers fade within weeks of being placed on the windshield. I know when it's due--but I like to be able to look for a reminder. So here I am settled in at tge dealership--I've made myself at home as instructed--I've eatten one of their "free" doughnuts, have hooked up to their "free" wifi, am half-heartedly listening to their "free" cable ( a Christmas show on Hallmark), and I've gone to the fridge for my "free" DDP. Ack!!! No DDP! 
Luckily I spy another fridge--which is also devoid of Diet Dr Pepper. This does not bode well.  
My next stop will be the iPhone Hospital (aka AT&T ). I really hate my iPhone right now. Last night it froze up. Then I "dropped" it. Face down. In the large driveway gravel. Now it's really frozen. The only thing I can do with it is make a voice activated call via the hands-free system in my SUV. At best I will have a phone repair bill. At the worst, I will be adopting a new phone. 
I have decided if I adopt, it will not be another iPhone. I love most things about my iPhone--except the fact that I have to download my photos to a computer (none of mine are working). Other smart phones can download directly to a thumbdrive. Well, Apple--you have me hostage to using only your technology only as long as I continue to have an iPhone--but I'm thinking today might be my apple-emancipation day. 
I also need need a pamper day--roots are showing and all claws are ragged. I usually do my hair myself--including highlights so that will cut the cost; however, I can't see well enough to do a good job on my toes--that's a job for Super Nail Girl. Besides, after a stressful day of non-fun spending, I will enjoy an hour or so in the massage chair.
