Puzzles and Pouches

Matthew and I have been busy lately getting our puzzle on. It turns out that Puzzles(and cottage cheese) remain on the short list of things and activities that you recall fondly from your youth that are still worth the hype when revisited in adulthood. Unlike Rodney Dangerfield in the film LadyBugs, not funny. conquering the City of Vail puzzle.

Puzzles are not the only things that I have been revisiting from my youth, I am also trying to persuade Matthew into getting a dog(a basset hound.) I am trying to broker a deal where if I do all of my chores and get good grades than I can get a dog for Christmas.
this is not the first time that I have tried to convince Matthew that we should get a dog, however this is the first time that my wanting of a dog has lasted longer than 24 hours. Which is why I had no option but to purchase this amazing shirt from Wal Mart with a basset hound silk screened on it.
I think I have proved my point, that I really do want a dog and I would take care of it and clean up after it and play with it and love it. (plus we all know that once you get bored of pets you can just return them, unlike baby's.)

The Axe

I got laid off today. I and a large number of people that I work with were invited to a meeting this morning and when we arrived there was a lot of awkward silence and a small balding man read from a piece of paper that we were no longer needed. I kept waiting for the part where he told us about the all inclusive St. Regis resort and spa package included in the severance, but he must have forgotten.

However I did not forget to load up on stolen office supplies before I left. So take that armed guard at the door who went through my belongings, you didn't look inside my lunch box where I hide all of the loot!

All I am doing right now is trying to think, What Would Ferris Do?

Update by Matthew:
Just so ya'll know how i treat my lady right, i decided to avenge her Countrywide death through a series of covert sabotage operations. for those who don't know, here's a little background. for an unknown reason i was hired on as a member of the IT department for CW, despite the fact that my computer skills are what some people would refer to as barely above a John McCain level. But regardless, as part of my job i sit in a cubicle all day and make sure that company owned computer software is sent to the right people, and removed from the wrong people.
Translation: lets just say that the small balding man who read Lindsay the news of her lay-off today should not be surprised if tomorrow he starts his computer only to find out that he no longer has any software (including e-mail) to do his job.
phase two of my vengeance plan is in the works, i am fully prepared to recommit myself to a favorite jr. high hobby. copper thievery.
