Sunday Critters #1

So, there have been some pretty big changes in my life lately. I've mostly kept the details of my personal life out of my blogging since not so many of them are about cooking, hence not too interesting. And honestly I don't really plan to change that. But I will sum up what's happened since otherwise there would probably be some confusion.

My girlfriend and I broke up a while ago and I've moved, I'm staying with a couple friends of mine until I can get a place of my own. They have a nice kitchen, even if their stove is electric. That took some getting used to. Heh. It took me a while to think up the needed nicknames for them, but since we'd recently been watching Spartacus, and to earn my keep I'm their houseboy, I've decided to go with Dominus and Domina (latin for lord and lady). It amuses me, but then I'm easily amused.

Unfortunately the real Bob couldn't move with me, so there won't be many pics of him for a while and Noodles will be staying with my ex girlfriend so I won't be able to share any more of her antics either. But despite all the unpleasantness, there is some silver lining. Sometime this week I'll tell you about the food related stuff, today it's going to be about the furry ones.

Like this little girl here. She is a longhair chihuahua named Zelda and she is cute enough that she really shouldn't be around people with heart problems. That is her "requesting" to be picked up and held. Notice, she just barely comes up to my knee at full extension.

Then there's Suki (also a longhair chihuahua). He's really more god than dog, I have some videos of him that I'll be sharing in the future. I blame him for my new, unmanly love of chihuahuas.

Angel is, arguably, the best dog in the world. A mysterious mix of chihuahua and something else she is ridiculously sweet, although terrified of almost everything. Like the camera, for example. She will be a challenging subject.

Here is Obi, he's a short hair Persian and this is how I will always think of him.Fast asleep, with his tongue sticking out. He feels like a stuffed animal.

Last but not least, the cat on the left is Maude. She is difficult to get pictures of since she doesn't come upstairs often. I'm guessing she'd rather not deal with all the dogs, even though Zelda loves her and always wants to play. Hm, on second thought that's almost certainly the reason. Heh.

So, some food posts later this week. I've found out some interesting things about my tastes since I've moved here. Like I like some Indian food. I never knew that.

Really sorry to hear the bad news! You'll get back there! I'm sure being around friends has been a huge help.

You mentioned electric stove. I can't stand them! I'm so use to gas but now I'm living in an apartment with my boyfriend. Nice kitchen, but electric stove. I can't get the temperature just right and have overcooked many steaks on my cast iron skillet. ;)

All that happens merely prepares us to take on the challenge of uncovering our fullest potential and to take our closer to our true mission.

Loved the joyful pictures.

Here is something to put some fire into your newly found love for Indian food.

Yay--So glad you are back! I'm looking forward to your food posts, of course, but I love the animal pics. I see now what my long-haired Chihuahua should look like. Mine weighs 3x more than she should. We've been stuggling with her weight (and mine!) since we got her. Loveable none the less.:)Looking forward to more posts.

Hi Bob! I'm glad to see you back and I'm looking forward to enjoying more of your food. My blog buddy, Grapefruit and I started a Indian cookery project, we are calling, "Curry-Palooza". I picked the first recipe and she picked the second. I'm up next and we hope others will join us. We post our recipes on the first Friday of each month. Won't you join us?

Glad you're up to blogging, once again. Notice, please, that, as you taught me, the word no longer has scare quotes. Doesn't mean I'm not scared, but I do try to learn.

Also glad to see cheese and beef high up on your label frequency distribution. How'd bacon end up so low?

Bob said...

Hi kids!

Sage: Sounds like fun, I'll definitely look into it.

Spryte said...

Hey Bob... sorry to hear about your girlfriend. Wow! You sure do have a lot more critters! And they're all so cute!!!

Kim said...

Welcome back! Sucks when life gets in the way of blogging, huh? ;) I have the same problem. Ha!

I would just like to say....please send Zelda to me. Thank you. That is all.

Goldie said...

I was thinking of you, and wanted to drop you a line to check up on you, but got side-tracked. Glad I happened to log into my own neglected blog and notice that you had some new posts! YAY!

Sorry about the g/f situation. That sucks. But, things goes on. It'll get better.
