Thursday evening, breakfast for dinner

It was the Ides of March today, and also what would have been Lucky's tenth birthday. I didn't have time to think much about that, though, because Shelby broke loose and got into the Big Dog food one hundred times too many and had a really, really badly upset stomach. She was perfectly healthy, wrassling with Scout all day; she just also bombed the kitchen while she was at it. It took me an hour to clean it all up, and that's with a bottle of Comet scrub and a bucket of Mr. Clean. Fortunately, my mother made an executive decision at lunch to haul both of the puppies off to the vet and get checked out, which meant that I had a blessed, blessed afternoon all to myself to check my email and sleep, basically. I spend a lot of the day chasing them around and popping them on the nose (with one finger, so it's not like I'm smacking them) and telling them not to eat the spathiphyllum and not to eat the kitty litter and not to snap at Meko, and then on top of that, today they figured out how to open the door to the laundry room. This is where the cat's litter is kept--it's one of those automatic boxes with the self-combing mechanism--but there's not a lockable door, just a sliding wooden one that doesn't have anything to catch on. But still, you know, they don't have opposable thumbs or anything, right? I'll just open it when Bad Cat scratches on the door, which he immediately figured out he should do, and that'll be it, right? Nope, I hear the puppies rumbling around in the laundry room, playing in the litter grit. I still don't know how they opened it, but somehow, they did. And this is not even getting into how I have to take them and the poms outside on separate shifts, so I'm usually wiping up someone or other's wet spot on the carpet at any given moment.

POTC3 pics from the other day: Since they seem to have been removed--and posted elsewhere, but I couldn't get that page to work--I've uploaded my entire collection to sendspace. This includes the concept art with the ridiculously buxom Elizabeth that was also removed a while back, but no behind the scenes images, just official photography. I think the file will expire after a week, so grab it while you can. ETA: This just in: two more that I didn't have.

A really terrible story about a missing dog I wanted to set apart. Skip on down to the rest of the news if you don't want to see it: Girl finds missing dog's head in box on doorstep. "Two weeks ago, a gift-wrapped box was left at the house Crystal shares with her grandmother. The box had batteries on top, and a note that said 'Congratulations Crystal. This side up. Batteries included.' " What. The fuck.

We can't tell you how much we appreciated that. Now that we've somehow kept this thing going for twenty-two issues, we thought that we'd check in with you and see if we could maybe, you know, move on."

Gisele Bundchen to star in Da Vinci sequel? This is going to end well. Also, since they're officially working on the sequel, I guess this puts The Da Vinci Code back into my pool of "Series and Sequels" movies for the second book.

Watchmen Test Hidden in 300 Trailer.

If you like cat macros, you'll love 300 macros. This one, although not a variation on "THIS IS SPARTA!!," may be my favorite.

Something else I ran into in the macro thread: Scared of Bees cartoons. They have nothing to do with bees, by the way.

(Speaking of cat macros: GET OFF MY LAWN, YOU DAMN KIDS!)

The most deliciously useful page I have seen in a while:'s list of music used in movie trailers. I had actually been trying to find the song used in the Ever After trailer this very week.
