Napoleon: Adventures of a French Bulldog
I make this banana hat look good and you know it!

So here's a picture I took this week of Napoleon in the hat that came with his banana costume (from two Halloween's ago).  He doesn't really like stuff on his head but my husband decided to put the hat on him just to see if he'd wear it.  This is one of the pictures I managed to get of him looking all smug.  Seriously, I cannot love this little man enough haha.  He's so funny.  Personally, it made me think of a smurf when I saw the hat on him haha.  I don't know what I'd do without my stinky little Frenchie. 

It's hard work being a Frenchie. 

Just thought I'd share the fun :)

Comment Problems?
Hi all, I was made aware that for some reason the option to leave comments wasn't working.  I removed a gadget at the bottom so hopefully that's fixed.  I wont know until somebody tries it so if you try to send me a comment on one of my posts and it doesn't work, shoot me an email at and I will look into it further.  I'm not all that great at that kind of thing but I'll find somebody who might know what's wrong with it if what I did doesn't fix it. So thanks :)

Happy V Day!
Yes, it's the day when everybody goes out and spends far more money than they need to on the people they either: love, care about, are friends with or maybe just want to get laid by.   My favorite are the ones that have only been dating for like 2 weeks and it's like a huge deal to them.  "OH MY GOD IT'S VALENTINE'S DAY AND I GET TO SPEND IT WITH MY SWEETIE! (I hope he gets me that necklace or ring I've been wanting for 10 years but didn't have anybody to buy it for me")..... I swear guys are suckers.  Why do you let yourselves get roped into all kinds of craziness over girls you barely know?  And girls, what the hell is wrong with you? You don't NEED to be with somebody on Valentine's Day just because it's Valentine's Day.  Hell, find some friends and go hang out with them.  I hear everybody get all sad and depressed that they don't have anybody on Valentine's Day....what about the other 364 days of the year that you don't have anybody? Why is it on this one day you get all sad and depressed and eat a half gallon...or maybe an entire gallon of ice cream? (don't worry, I do that sort of thing and I'm married!).  *sigh*  I hope everybody has a great time today because I know there's a big social expectation to go do something hopelessly and disgustingly romantic on February 14th every year.  Personally, I'm probably going to just sit at home, eat cheesecake, play around on and maybe watch some 30 Rock on Netflix streaming.  That's my kind of Valentine's Day.......Lord, I'm getting old!!

But in all seriousness, have a safe, fun, romantic (if that's your thing) Valentine's Day and I hope you get to spend some quality time with the ones you love, whether they be friends, family, boyfriends/girlfriends, or spouses.  Just take the time to appreciate them.  No need to spend insane amounts of money because Hallmark tells you to.

Valentine's Day (Rant)
So anybody actually celebrating Valentine's Day? I wonder sometimes if there's something wrong with me because I can't get into the spirit of Valentine's Day according to how we're supposed to celebrate it in the United States.  I don't see how candy is supposed to be more exciting to me on that day of the year when I happen to love candy just as much every other day.  I can go buy it without having silly little sayings on it that are supposed to be all happy and romantic.  I mean, don't get me wrong, I love my husband and I love getting gifts, but I don't understand why a day that was originally a feast day for a Saint got turned into the consumer driven machine that it is today.  I don't want my husband to buy me a gift because he feels obligated.  If he sees something he thinks I'd like and happens to get it then that's nice.  Especially if it's out of the blue and not on a day that stores everywhere tell you that they have the perfect gift for your lady.  I'd rather spend the money on something we both enjoy anyway that we'd do whether it was a holiday or not.  So, I guess I can give one piece of advice to people.  If you care about somebody there are lots of ways you can show it without having to go out and buy a silly card, roses, chocolates, a stuffed animal etc.  Don't feel pressured to have to go crazy on gifts.  Personally, my husband and I generally just discuss things we might want or we just say, forget getting a gift and we'll spend the money on something cool.  Well, anyway I'm ranting.  I guess I just think it's a little bit silly and it makes me sort of uncomfortable when romance is forced on you because it's what's expected from you on that day of the year.  But that's just me.

What do you think?  Do you think Valentine's Day and other holidays like that have gotten out of control with consumerism etc. that they've completely lost touch with what it was meant for in the first place? I know I certainly feel that way about several holidays.  Valentine's Day is definitely one of them.
What's in a name?
    I have spent a lot of time looking up names online and in baby name books just because I love learning what names mean.  I love to write (although I tend not to actually finish a lot of what I start) and I love having names that suite the character’s personality/profession or maybe something that the character might become later on in the story (leaving it up to the reader to actually figure out what the name means or figuring out exactly how it fits that character). 

My Pets' names:
    -Murphy (my cat named for Officer Alex J. Murphy aka Robocop)
    -Napoleon (my french bulldog named for Napoleon Bonaparte)
    -used to have a Betta fish named Malcolm (for Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly  and Serenity) he died though.  I did have a picture of the ship, Serenity, taped to the back of his bowl though to give him a cool atmosphere.  What can I say? I’m a weird nerd like that. 
    -my cat that I had as a kid was She-ra, and to this day I still think She-ra was an awesome character. 

Anyway, I love names.  It’s fascinating. I thought I'd just ramble on about a little of what I was thinking regarding them. 
A quick thank you and my big obsession of the moment
