Andy Daly finding out what it is like to be Irish.  Everyone should watch the show Review.
k, so Verlander needs to turn and face forward.

Life sure feels funny and different when you drink two cups of coffee in the morning instead of one! Oh my!  I think it means that simple decisions are harder to make.  Should I paint and then go on a walk?  Or should I walk and then paint when I return?  If I paint now I might get annoyed at all of the sunlight coming through our windows, teasing me by exposing all the dust on the furniture that, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to rid completely.  But if I go on a walk now, I might end up getting the fear because surely there are lots of people outside, and I have had lots of coffee, and this is bad for anxiety.

Maybe guzzling a few liters of water will help me.  
I also saw a Bedlington Terrier laying a turd yesterday on Petrin Hill which is really a hilarious scene cause you can't tell...is it a dog?  Or is it a sheep?  And it was all hunched over, looking embarrassed like all dogs do when they crap.  I did not take a picture though because I see that dog's owners walking it all the time, and it would be awkward to have to pass them in the future, wondering what they think of me for once taking a photo of their dog in such a vulnerable state.  


























I had to take this shot from far away cause I thought that the Czech owners might get offended at me photographing their dog pooping with a frisbee in its mouth.  
I'm excited to be going to the FIRST first world tomorrow for a mini break of sorts.  Break from what?  I do not know.  And I do not know why it has taken us this long to visit Berlin, seeing as it's so darn close.  
It sounds like there is a wet dog shaking itself off right now on the terrace, but I think that it is just that huge mama pigeon that likes to chill on the post.  I'm kind of nervous though since my newly dyed black clothing that is currently drying off out there might get revenge pooped on since I like to scare that pigeon away all the time.

I just went out there, and I did not hear nor did I see anything.

The black-capped chickadee is by far the cutest bird, duh.  I loved eating popping corn by our front windows as a kid, pretending it was my seed while I watched the chickadees eat from the feeder outside.  

The more rural Tokyo metro.

Maybe I have posted this photo before.  Either way I do not care.

I could not fall back asleep this morning, so I started watching this maybe rom com (I'm not that far into it) with Cameron Diaz and that dude that plays Jamie Lannister, and it is really distracting.  Her face that is.  These beezies need to really stop putting all that lumpy crap into their faces cause they end up looking like puffy turds.  Leslie Mann, who seems older and never plays the hot chick, looks way younger and fresher than pizza face Diaz in this movie.  I do not know why Jamie Lannister has her as a side piece right now.  Oh surprise surprise!  Leathery ole Don Johnson plays Cameron's dad!

Look at this though!


Baseball is HILARIOUS!  I haven't done a post like this in some time

Carlos said that he made art here.

Since we'll probably be flying out of Barcelona in the spring of next year and not Prague, I have found these interesting low-cost itineraries...

Barcelona to New Delhi for $317 and then a month after that a flight from Delhi to Ho Chi Minh City for $310.

OR

Barcelona to Tokyo for $548 and then $270 from Tokyo to Ho Chi Minh City a few weeks later.

OR Barcelona straight to HCMC for $524 which isn't as exciting.

Around the world in over two years with Melissochka and Carlos.


The yellow jackets keep eating all of our bamboo.  And they're mean!

Felix and Price are pitching.  Carlos and I are going to get into a fight.
Oh lookie here!  A new layout.  Expect big changes in the coming weeks!  Oh boy!  Even my beloved header will change which has been here since the birth of the blog.  I love it very much, but you will soon no longer see it anywhere but my computer's hard drive.  I do wish that there were better fonts from which to choose though.  
Oh right, I went to Portland for a wedding and to wander around a bit.  There were a whole bunch of parties too, most likely because the sun only shines there for two months tops.


Klickitat







Natalie was there on skype.


Michael and Michelle's new dog, Donna Cheadle.





Carlos and his old roommates. 














I think he is crying.















The night we went to Andina.  It wasn't really our anniversary.  Carlos's parents told the hostess it was, so that she would give us a good table.  I did not expect complimentary dessert.









Chickens in backyards!  I must be in Portland.  HOHEHOHEHOOOO.
