  1. Marvin has too much time on his hands. He needs a puppy to occupy him. Make the puppy HIS not YOURS. See if that works. Also, since when is Marvin the boss of you? If you want that puppy, go get it! You shall not be dictated to! I am obsessing over you getting that new dog. I have no idea why.

  3. I’m disappointed to see that Tallulah has sold out and pandered to the mass perception of beauty. Anyone can tell that she’s obviously had botox (distinct lack of forehead wrinkles) and been airbrushed to look younger.

  5. Oh jeez, I’m so going to end up feeling stupid here, I just know it. But okay. You’re a proofreader, right? You’re used to stupid people.
    “Me: Better than Big Hair.” Okay … but … aggh … wouldn’t that be wrong? I grew up thinking the colon in such a case is kind of like an equal sign, like the verb “is.” And I’d think using “me” was sort of wrong, because I’m not trying to be a direct object, I’m trying to be an active agent who is totally outperforming the big hair. I mean, I’d never say “Me is better than big hair.” So, okay, so in these cases it’s like an idiomatic construction or something? But … couldn’t I also say, “I, Siren: Better than Big Hair”?
    Ugh, you know what? I know you’re right, and that the problem is my brain is jamming on the logic. So, please please forget I said anything! See, there’s a reason I lurk instead of leaving comments, hmph.
    P.S. Just for the record, I’d never want to be in a contest against big hair without Steadman.

  6. Wait — what’s wrong with “Steadman & I”? Isn’t it basically saying “Steadman & I [are] better than big hair”?
    Or maybe it’s the ampersand that’s the problem? I don’t like ampersands. I think it’s totally ridiculous that there are all those extra letters on the term “ampersand,” when all it had to do was be an “and.” What does “ampers” mean, anyhow?
    Uh, sorry. I’m over-thinking again, huh.
    Okay, I’m going back to lurking now.

  7. June, when is the Breakfast with Buddha book club meeting?
    Me and my Kindle will be here all ready to go!
    Oh, and did you see that Kindle DX will now come in graphite, a gorgeous new color, instead of just plain white? Maybe now that Marvin got himself a Kindle for your birthday, you can get you the newer, fresher Kindle?

  8. Hmm…I think this is a PR maneauver by Marvin since we’ve all deemed him Master Meanie of the Household.
    ADORABLE baby Talu!

  9. Yea for Taluprah!
    Poo on silly Marvin!
    I know I am really late on commenting about Marvin but I was 24 hours at a birth and just now read about his King of the World antics. Hmmpph. I am sorry to say that I am just the type of person that would retaliate to pronouncements like that and go out and get 3 dogs! Oooh, I would be so bad.
    Good thing Marvin is married to you, someone sweet and nice who would never pull crap like that.
    p.s. Shame on Marvin. Did you also tell his own Mama what he did?

However, Miss Lu’s sweetums wittle facey is enough to make even me jump in from Google Reader to comment. I heart her. I want to snuggle her face and talk baby talk to her and feed her people food right from the table. Those eyes! I cannot resist. Here, Lu, have my dinner. I wasn’t going to finish it anyway…
