Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Matt thinks he has Ebola and I've been very insensitive about it each and every time he calls or texts to provide me unsolicited updates. I've been working exactly double the amount of hours every day that even exist in a normal Earth day and so I've become extremely run down and now I think I have contracted the Ebola from Matt and I'm very upset by this. I just called him to yell at him for spreading disease to innocent people. But somehow I ended up instead just telling him I'm coming over to cuddle with Mr. Pants if I can ever get out of my office.

I think the southern accent throws me. It pulls manners out of me I didn't even know I had. Bob and Cathie really should have tried using southern accents on me when I was a child.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:
Mr. Pants and Mr. Scraps picked me up at the airport last week and it was amazing and we all peed a little. 

I taught Sam's dog to sleep in human beds while I was visiting Colorado. YOU'RE WELCOME, SAM!

This isn't actually a Picture.

I didn't take very many pictures this week so here are just some more puppies.

~It Just Gets Stranger


  1. Mr. Pants does not look pleased by the presence of Mr. Scraps...

    1. 2nd picture: "Ted, I will cut you."

  2. That last pic of you and the dogs is very Freudian. You're choking Mr. Pants while kissing Mr. Scraps. It's a Greek tragedy unfolding before our eyes.

  3. Wait wait wait. Matt has a southern accent?? I feel like this is brand new information!

    1. Girl, keep up! Matt has a southern accent, likes mint sweet tea and Home Depot.

    2. Oh, and has smizing McDreamy eyes.

  4. Wait wait that twitter account for real?!? Cuz wow....

    1. I love that Twitter account. I wish it were a real place; I would personally go check it out on behalf of all Strangers!

      Sadly, it's simply a parody account, written by a non-hipster non-dad. Definitely funny, though!

  5. Let's talk about Sam's dog. Now THAT'S a dog.

  6. Hashtag hot guys with dogs.

  7. Nugget has definitely thought she deserves princess treatment at all times since you left. You spoiled her for sure.

  8. Lightbulb! What if all of those dogs acting like humans are humans trapped inside of a dog body? We could be witnessing the beginning of genetic revolution! AHHHH! Call the Jurassic Park producers! I have a feeling that this version of inter-species breeding could be their next box office hit!

    1. I think it's more of a case of their humans living vicariously through their dog "children". That Norwegian chick needs some serious help.
