A long-running personal blog shared by two authors with completely different approaches to life. And a lot of large, beautiful photographs of dogs and nature and places we've traveled to. Rich in commentary and irreverant in style. 

Blog

We started blogging a long time ago. Our work hours never aligned with recommended psychotherapists and we needed to get our thoughts out. We are great friends, total opposites and long-time housemates. This was a way to communicate. With each other. With strangers. With consumer marketers. With sub-par meteorologists. With distant friends who wanted to see pictures of stuff we were up to.

This is the place. Our bucket of thoughts to share. You are welcome. 
(We realize that most of you are here for the dog pictures.)

Winter Weather or Not?

Healey

No. That is not me. I have not lost 85lbs and become Asian.

(But those are killer boots though, aren't they? Do you think those tassels are attached to some sort of wonderful wool boot liner? Mmm kickin kickers.)

This girl has more than just swish storm boots and an apartment in the Upper East side of Manhattan to hold over me. She is rich, thin AND has snow. Bitch.

Wonder what are in those bags? Probably artichokes or something gross that I don't know how to cook.

Why is it that when I have places to go..

"...meeting starts at 7:30 am sharp. There is public parking available in the area. Secured building please bring 8 different types of photo identification. Guests found with cell phones on premises will be shot. Meeting rooms subject to change - create a profile in the lobby intranet kiosk to get up-to-date agenda... bring stool sample and blue kite."

THEN. Only then does it snow.

Now? Now that the 20 days of celebrating my son's 8th birthday has finally (mercifully) passed and I am almost able to consider myself - the immediate environment and some abandoned television shows. Now that I have time and interest in making a soup from scratch.. does it snow now?

No.

But everyone is PRETENDING that it did. Here is a photo I have just taken from my office window.

...pfffft!

Insulting. {Yenny  - don't you dare make fun of my arrow. You KNOW I scratched that shitty little thing out myself. } She is a very harsh critic of my arrows.

There was a time when she and I were opposites in everything. But lately (past 3 years) we have been noticing that the poles are shifting. She has started giving a damn about decor and graphic arts and I have just given up. I.Do.Not.Care. ..well most of the time.

For instance we play this stupid addictive iPad game called "MyTown2" where you create a city and then kinda 'play Bloomberg' on it. And she showed me her town and I laughed at her. she had put in roads. I was like "Okay, {HAHA} no that is really nice.... now all the fake digital people have places to drive their fake digital cars {HAHA STUPID}...that was very considerate of you."

"Well what did you do? Don't you have roads?"

"Hell no - screw those ants. I need to put a building there to collect rent off of."

Then she pointed out this element of the game where a little woman pop's out of the left side of the screen to give you pointless goals. And it turns out that Yenny actually takes direction from the fake pointless white girl.

In real life - the YENNY I KNOW - would have pretended to be COMPLETELY Chinese and blinked at the white girl as a sign that she did not speak the language. {or would not} She would have then coldly turned and ambled off without giving one lick of care to the social awkwardness.

Don't get me wrong - I have seen it go down before - right in front of me - and it's like a superpower.

But nowadays? She must be watching Doctor Phil or something. I make fun of her and she tries to deflect by saying that it's not about HER getting all soft and emotional - she throws her Sister-in-Law under the bus saying

"Look at this card!!!! It has Hearts and sayings and a POEM! Can you believe how soft she has gotten? She denies it - but she is growing 'emotions,' that Anna."

So sad. Yenny even decorated her character's home in Animal Crossing. She had some hideous matching floor and wall theme that made me do the urine face when I saw it. I can only imagine how many apples she picked to afford that.

Yes, the Yenny I know  - the Yenny of "The elevator incident of 2006"... she is gone. In her place is the Asian equivilent of the Gilmore girls.
