Twilight? Get the Leash!

Well, the Terrible Twosome seem to have recovered from their binge night in the fridge. Both are back on their regular feed and no unscheduled trips to the potty or dangerous explosions happening at unexpected times. So, hopefully that won't happen again for a long time. The kitchen is mostly restocked after being ravaged, but I'm still out of most of my dry goods. We don't keep ready-made foods in the house, other than bread and crackers, but the need to cook didn't seem to slow things down at all in this instance. I may need to re-think what foods I'm keeping. I need anti-binge foods for both man and beast, heh.

While O was feeling crappy, I went to the movies by myself. There wasn't much to see, so I watched "Cresp├║sculo", or "Twilight". The name is in Spanish, but the movie is in English with Spanish subtitles. I've never heard of it, but the advertisement said that it was based on the book that has captured millions of readers. The movie was pretty good, but I didn't think it was adult movie fare. It was an interesting story, well done if you like vampires (and high school stories), but definitely a young adult or older teen flick. I'm not sure why they called it "Twilight", because these vampires came out in the daytime. I may have to get a cd of it to watch again. Sometimes I miss the most obvious things in movies. Last time I reviewed a movie on my blog, I was chastised, so today I'm not a movie critic. No spoiler here. So go see it. I wouldn't take my little kids to it, though.

Celeste has learned to bring her leash to us whenever she wants to go outside. What a good girl! No more silently staring at us with desperate eyes for her! She grabs her leash from the coffee table and drags it to wherever we are. If we are busy or distracted, she sings a little to us to get our attention. With the leash there, of course we go immediately to the bike path or park - no waiting. A relief for her and a relief for us, too.

What a good dog! I think that movie might be the same one I've seen reviewed here in the U.S. (with English title). Won't go see it myself; I'd rather walk the dog.

Glad everyone is feeling back up to snuff. Sometimes we just have to pay for our indiscrestions!

Best Dog Ever knows the word 'walk', and would get very excited with the prospect, so we took to spelling it. I swear she now knows how to spell it, too!

Hope you have a good week. Also, wanted to thank you for taking the time to check out my place, and coming back to read now and again. I appreciate your stories of your life in a different culture very much.
