I don’t have any crispy new tricks for you, that was just my way of Thinking Out Loud and trying to lure you in. Did it work?
Just give me crispy!
Apparently if a menu item has crispy in the description — sweet or savory — I’m all over it. I love my sushi with “crispy” in it (that would be panko flakes).
My new favorite treat at the chocolate shop? The Peanut Butter Crispy Bon Bon. Swoon.
Except fried foods. I’m not really a huge fan of fried chicken, for instance. It’s not that I don’t like it — it’s that it’s not worth it to me. Give me some nice roast chicken any day.
If I didn’t run, I’d have more time to bake
Except if I didn’t run, I wouldn’t be able to consume as many baked goods! Just another of life’s little ironies.
And speaking of life’s little ironies
I really do enjoy learning. And yet sometimes learning new stuff makes my head feel like it will explode. And the thought of going back to school? There are interests I think sometimes I should pursue, even if only for my own knowledge.
Yet I feel as though I already have more than I can handle. Of course I also know if you want to get something done, you give it to a busy person. Just another irony.
You can still run Utah with me
And maybe meet a few of your favorite bloggers. I don’t have any more entries up for grabs, but code crj15 will get you 15% off your race entry (register here).
Come for the mostly downhill Boston Qualifier course, finish for the 10th anniversary jacket. Don’t forget to let me know if you do register — I’d love to meet you! It’s gonna be a party.
By Jove, I think he’s got it!
Down, that is. Chester learned down very quickly — although we did have a problem with him and cold floors initially. That dog would do most anything for a treat.
It took Lola a while. No dummy, she wasn’t quite as quick as Chester, and of course she was older, too. Well, Bandit is a lot older than either one of them was when we started to train them. Down has been hard for him, too.
He learned it — as long as you were luring him with a treat. He had to see that treat, too. But this week I got him to actually do it, without a treat in my hand (although nearby) not once, but twice.
We’re teaching an old dog new tricks.
And just yesterday when the UPS truck drove up, and I told him to stay in his bed, he actually did. Of course I went down to the door before the UPS guy had a chance to ring the door bell, but it’s still progress!
And if you like cute cat videos (and who doesn’t?), check out the one I posted to Instagram (follow me here) of Gizmo eating with his paw.
Talk to me. Tell me in the comments:
How do your furkids react to the doorbell?
Have any of them ever reacted to a doorbell on the tv?
Is there a certain food texture you love?
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her:
