"When my dog pees, he leaves brown patches all over the lawn. Is he peeing fire?" dog owner, Covington, KY.

Yes. He is peeing fire. Who wrote this, Ralph Wiggam?

Cute Alert
The Woodland Park Zoo recently had a Sloth Bear give birth to twins. Ohmylord could it be any cuter? Reminds me a little of one of my favorite books as a kid, Maurice Sendak's "Little Bear".

Katzooks!
Revel sent over this pic of mystery sweets. Are they chocolate covered kitten legs?

Tattoo You
I just can't get enough of that old timey tattoo-ey goodness! Good thing Don Ed Hardy and Sailor Jerry have new online shops for great tshirts and such. Lucky Girl makes amazing leather bags with tattoo motifs as well. I'm about due for some fresh ink courtesy the Rev Eric Eye over at Lucky Devil.
Heh heh heh....

Atkins is not for vegetarians.
I decided that I need to shed a little lard, I'll be damned if I look like I have a fat ass for my wedding...my friend sold me on Atkins- I was especially intrieged by the prospect of quick results. I read the book and set up my plan...the problem is that this diet really is for meat eaters (I know, duh)...if you eat meat it's probably really great,and everything I read actually seemed fairly sound.. but I found I couldn't substitute tofu for the protien, I had to take it out of my measly carb allowance..(meaning I felt like I was starving) I do eat eggs (which you have tons of) though I don't like them very much. I started yesterday, and I felt great eating no sugar or bread...I had mass energy...and that was just ONE DAY. Today when I woke up I felt nauseous, not hungry (at least not for eggs and cheese), and I actually had the shakes for crying out loud. You are supposed to go through wheat and sugar withdrawals so I guess that was part of it (after one day though?) I can't do it. I'm seriously bummed, but I know I can also just knock off the refined sugar and bread and with going to the gym I will probably be fine.So no miracle diet for me. I sad.
