Monday Miscellany

  • For those of you who asked, Delta is an English Mastiff. English Mastiff’s are great dogs. They are larger than a bull mastiff (usually by about 100 pounds) but less “jowly” than a Neapolitan mastiff. They are entirely indoor dogs, and can’t cope being outside – they are people dogs. They are really stubborn and (usually) quite smart. Delta was a rescue dog, which explains her predilection to eat everything.
  • I have an extra 10 hours of work to do this week, someone at the office thought they were helping me by doing something and because they didn’t know the software, they didn’t help, they just made extra work.
  • I have to complete a thing for work by finishing the sentence “You’d never guess. . .” and including something about myself. I think I’m pretty boring. Do you have any idea of what I could write? Please help.
  • Finally, I had the most amazing square last week, and I don’t know what they are called, so I can’t look up the recipe. They were a layer of graham crackers, a layer of chocolate icing sort of stuff (it was chocolate flavour), then a layer of graham crackers again, and finally they were frosted. Do you know what these are?

    Are english mastiffs just as drooling even though they are less jowly? I love mastiffs, but not sure I could handle the drool.

    Graham cracker goodness, that’s my guess

    My dog sat in a mud puddle today and then came inside and ran all over the floors before I caught her. Upstairs and downstairs.

    You’d never guess that Mrs. Spit is totally awesome. That’s all I can come up with, although maybe people WOULD guess that you are totally awesome.

    Delta is such a pretty girl.

    Sorry about the extra work.

    And, good luck finding out the name of the yumminess.

    Delta obviously loves going to see her vet! Why else would she eat everything…

    Enjoy the overtime, (paid ot?)

    You’d never guess that Mrs S. tires instead of hills potatoes (or likes tired potatoes) How many ways can you say plants potatoes in tires?

    See, I hate those silly games, so for me, I would go with a very sarcastic “You’d never guess that A is cranky!” Because I am, all the time. 🙂

    Was there vanilla pudding/custard involved in the squares? Because that would make it chocolate eclair cake. Which is most delicious. Otherwise, I can’t think of what it could be.

    Mmmmm . . . I don’t know what the official name it but I’d call it graham-cracker-chocolaty-goodness.

    -I’m not sure, but were they S’more bars? I’ve had several variations of it. Here is one recipe.

    -“You’d never guess that I know how to cook sweet potato casserole.” (isn’t that what you made for your American friend last Thanksgiving… it was something I know is common at American Thanksgivings)

    It sounds an awful lot like what my mother in law called ‘sex in a pan’. I’ve always thought it verged on TMI.
    Hope the computer is back up and running.

    YOU”D NEVER GUESS… how unboring I really am! that’s your answer.
